    Fifties style TV camera, with turret lenses. Probly black & white, too.

    Now that last statement from sgt Rat is really untrue. I have seen many videos on the internet that are directly partial!!!And embarrassing and humiliating and stupid, and leaving a trail of snail scum, not to the person, but to those pushing the camera, and directing. There is only one chair. Who sits in it?Blessed Be

    Very well Octavius, time to experiment with your mutanity, just to confirm you truth of preserving human values.And what does a panda do? He eats, shoots, and leaves. Just try it this once, but watch the camera angles.That should expose the puppetmaster of the High Council and one Octavius Allgood. I bet Velda has cracked the code on packing the council, and usually occupies 7 or 8 seats, with the occasional patsy like Al was just used to maintain belief in the system. But is she a free agent, a contract agent, a co-conspirator to someone playing her for a fool.I would take straight odds that JJ is up to his ears on this one, and if not the mastermind, part of the conspiracy. Is it a conspiracy that chocolate rabbits go on sale Saturday? I have to load up and refrigerate them until the body recovers from having my gallbladder ripped from my body on the 18th, resulting in a diminished capacity to process chocolat.Remember to vote for Endtown 2.0, Jenner’s Doc Rat, and the original Endtown over at TopWebcomics.com. Doc Rat especially needs extra votes to end the month in the Top 50.

    And Endtown 2.0 needs lots of votes to end the month in the Top 40. The month ends Sunday night, so especially if you have Monday off, please help two of the greatest comics end March, and start April well.Thank Yew,Thank Yew very much, JusSayinPS: Edited, so I apologise for anyone who answered the first part while I was adding the rest.Sincerely, Respectfully & Fraternally,JusSayin

    Thanks Surfi, I will be hoarding chocolat after this weekend, but only because I have to limit high fat foods like really good chocolat.QUICK ENDTOWN POLL:WHEN YOU EAT A CHOCOLAT BUNNY, DO YOU EAT THE EARS FIRST?I read an editorial in NYTimes earlier by Charles Blow., Some groups were complaining about attacks on the Judeo-Christian traditions of Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. It appears those traditions were established in the Book of Eggsodus.Whimsically,JusSayinAgain with editing for typo. Not many typos can be that offensive. Many apologies

    I saw that discussion earlier, but got distracted by a flatulent hippo. Maybe hippos cannot swim, but that one did try to leave the pool first. Hmmm, how about a lifesize chocolate hippo without the gas. On the other hand a numbat has nearly a two foot tongue, so you could eat a chocolate numbat starting with the tongue with noone the wiser. Which of those odd and poisonous critters down under is a symbol of fertility, since someone has again suggested the rabbit with an indigenous highly procreative animal.

    Yesterday, Unidyne said “Right side of panel 4: Mechanical TV set with a Nipkow scanner disc. Nice touch.”Yup. Got it in one. Mechanical TV with a cable feed.

    Notice that Allgood really is trying to keep this trial above-board. He wants the press present in order to voice his views to the public to be judged on their own merits. He’s not trying to rig the system, himself.

    Its not the panda trying to do anything here, so don’t come here with your idiotic politics or say straight out who you “think” it represents – which anyone with half a mind can see its not. Its the council thats the issue trying to rule things, and the rats mindlessly obeying.

    Yeah, sarge, there’s no bias with the camera. None that you can create with use of angles, lighting, zoom, so on and so forth.

    Wait, sorry, I mean the opposite of that, there’s all the bias in the world you can create with cameras!

    This really ought to be… interesting.

    Who knew the High Council had the power to rewrite the rules of how court cases are handled? Nothing more unbias than a game rigged in your favor. So… when does the revolution start? I got a bunch of torches and pitchforks to sell.

    RobertNorwall and some others have a finger on it too. Allgood seems to begin to waver from his path. It appears this was NOT what he was expecting. He wanted public with an audience but now is just part of the show not THE show.Video as an unbiased and impartial. Sometimes but not always.It will come down to who breaks down first.I think Allgood is going to crumble under this pressure. The Council is going to go bonkers on everyone.And then we will see what happens when the Council orders the Rats to do their thing.Hey TSOJ. I remember back in the day when we had candle powered TVs. (An old age joke)

    Didn’t think of spinning-disc TVs…didn’t think they had advanced to the sales room floor, actually. But isn’t the camera in today’s strip one of the old electronic-TV models? Aren’t the systems incompatible?

    To all, I’m at the end of my time off from work. As many of you regulars know I had to have a double by-pass at the first of the year. This has allowed me to be able to read and post comments earlier and more often. The dialog has been enjoyable and I’ve gotten to know some of you a bit more than I would have otherwise. Thank you.

    Somehow I missed till now the comment about “both theaters”…so Endtown has two theaters…wonder what they put on, besides rallies featuring Jake Jackrabbit or Octavius Allgood…or “Generation Bean” events…

    this sure isn’t what Allgood had in mind. He was working from he thought was an immoral act. Looks like Velda doesn’t want this thing to be known to the public.

    Radio REPAIR shop, Harpo and Groucho Marx, a time when most people had radios than TVs, early versions of TV cameras, a political career advanced based on accusations to me resembles the 1950s McCarthy Era. A lot of fear around that time and the sixties. Teaching children “duck and cover” and having drills on a regular basis with the thought that you might be attacked at any time.

    The 50’s were not all wonderful and just swell! Some want to see it with rose colored glasses. A whole generation with mild PTSD related to believing “this time it’s not a drill” And old McCarthy. He was an extreme extremist!

    And we, under the 1st. amendment, can say anything except yelling fire in a theater, but if someone made “rules” to keep the insanity that is politics out of our “safe place” just is Not nice.

    Two thoughts:I’m guessing Velda wants to keep the press/public out of the trial room so that Mr. Allgood doesn’t get rattled if the trial starts moving public sentiment farther away from him. I’m guessing that she (or her handlers) want to make it dangerous for the public to deal in mutant foodstuffs so that they can be easily controlled by the criminal element. Another possibility is that Velda belongs to Jacob Jackrabbit’s group and is using the trial to discredit Allgood.What is glasses rat’s angle on this. Is he following the way of security rats and meekly following the council’s (or Velda’s) orders or is he secretly working to undo the trial. It was said that he who controls the cameras & mikes can control the spin and the cameras are in the hands of security rats.

    One year a local store found a shipment of Easter candy a month after Easter. I walked in, saw an entire cart marked down 90%, and almost bought the whole thing, but left most for some little kid. Cadbury eggs for 15cents, 6 packs of Elmers Gold Brick Eggs, Pecan Eggs and etc., for a quarter when they had been over $3. Most chocolate Easter Candy keeps. I once found a two year old cadbury egg in the Fridge, left it out a day, looked at it and smelled it, and it seemed good as new.

    The bilbies are made by Haigh’s chocolates. Unfortunately, due to the high qualityof the chocolate, they do not deliver them internationally, as heat in transit will damage them.
