That’s a bit much. A touch of overkill, as it were.
nothing worse than being frozen to the bone
♫Dem Bones Dem Bones Dem Dry Bones♫
I imagine brothel robots as being like that where the customer has a choice of skin.
Have some cocoa, Lio.
Lio takes warming his bones close to the fire a bit too literal….
Lio’s got no guts…….
Come on in, shake off your skin, and rattle around in your bones!
Aren’t you going to hang up your Lio suit so that it dries out?
Drat, now you all know what happens in Minnesota
Once my girlfriend and I were on my motorcycle and got caught in a spring downpour. By the time we got to my house we were soaked to the bone. We got naked and under the blankets and tried to get warm. We did eventually.
Well at least I now understand why Lio is always wearing the same clothes, they aren’t clothes, they are part of his skeletal cover-up.
Curious as to what the the book is. Something by Poe?
4th Panel reminds me of G.P.K, Bony Tony/Unzipped Zack
“It’s good to warm my bones beside the fire” – Pink Floyd
Really didn’t expect that.
When you’re cold to the bones, warm up your bones first. Seems simple to me….
Now that’s dry humor.
As Pink Floyd said: “It’s good to warm my bones beside the fire.”
I live in Minnesnowta. I can commiserate with being cold to the bone.
That’s how it is, sometimes. In winter. In the north. Chilled to the bone.
How can he see to read?
Warming his bones by the fire. Very Dickensian.
Makes perfect sense to me. When you’re soaked to the bone, slip out of your skin and let it dry by the fire as you sit and read while warming up. Doesn’t everyone?
I’m reminded of a couple Shel Silverstein poems.
One of the more adult short subjects on pay cable in the 70s showed an animated audience watching a live action stripper. And then she unzipped her skin to reveal a skeleton.
