Really love Panel 4.
Guess I was wrong in how I imagined Kirby speaking if she uses the term haint.
This h-AIN’T the time to bring up the subject of ghosts, me thinks.;-D
Love that “Oh myyyyyyy, what have I gotten myself into???” look on Chic’s face.
Trust Kirbee to jump in and drown out Wally’s beginning of a calm response with her sincere and overly dramatic warning against “haints”. Waiting to see if Wally will ask the next logical question: “Why do you ask?”
I think Wally’s next question would be to Kirbee. And just where did you see these “haints?”
“Oh, when the Haints, Oh when the Haints, Oh when the Haints go marching in….
I gone through a lot of different emotions over the years reading this strip, but I think this is the first time I’ve spit coffee on my screen.
Well by golly, that’ll just settle his little stomach right down…
Is you is or is you haint?
I ain’t afraid of no haint!!
Next Chic will be wanting his room painted blue……keeps the haints from bothering you. It’s a southern thing.;-)
This is definitely one of the funniest comics in a looooong time. Thanks Aaron.
Chic: “That’s not the reassurance I was looking for. Now I will run away from the colony out of embarassment and never show my face around here ever again. Thanks, mom.”
Do you think he’s going to tell them he’s making plans to see one of these “haints”?
It haint proper to say “haint.”
Just out of curiosity, where are they getting milk now?
Wait, hold on a moment. Milk?
Even the bug is bug-eyed.
Well of course they have milk! After all, they have cookies!
The operation of a good universe demands that milk be created when cookies are created.
Well, except in Wally’s dreamwalk with Marx…
I guess milk is a cure-all for this problem.
You’re a chicken, talking to a lizard and a cat, because you wonder if spooks and specters are “too out there” for Reality? Excuse me, I have no words right now.
If Kirby hasn’t scared the bejezus out of Chick his next question should be “how do I protect myself proper[ly]?”
I do believe in haints! I do believe in haints! I do, I do …!
There aint no haint!
Wait, did she say milk?
I think he’s going to need a bigger glass…
A thought just occurred to me. the statement “drink your milk” in panel four implies that not all mutant animal colonies are as squeamish about consuming their own natural by products as Endtown is.
For what Kirbee was doing when she was transformed, the “Haints” were probably in her head.
Is Kirbee channeling Granny Clampett?
At least Kirbee said I’VE seen, not the detestable I seen.
