That’s right, Blyme. Get rid of the kid before Malgorth gets rid of you.
By the way, do chills “traverse” spines? Doesn’t that imply that the chill moves from one side of the spine to the other, say left to right?
Hold that sneeze, Poicy! It might be your last!But seriously, it is as I suspected yesterday: Blyme knows that he doesn’t need, much less want, the Orck Horde of Malgorth pounding down his door! So, it’s time for Trullus to skidaddle with the (metaphorically) poisonous kid and dispose of him somehow and somewhere else….
Going to be Mr York’s former host and hostess, I’ll bet. Trullus will leave the kid at their doorstep.
Get the point, Trullus?
Ah, Blyme has enough smarts to know that messing with orckish folk isn’t conducive to ‘good business’. Nothing like a bloody vendetta from an even bloodthirstier orck warlord to help ones discernment in such matters. C. Percival seems to have the most rotten luck: that’s usually the result of bad decisions made…especially in assuming kidnapping a warlord’s (orck) child would be a lucrative venture. Still, it makes for great reading, and I await to see what happens next in this latest tale.
“Woyloid Oyck”—classic Trullus. “So, how did you get that unique nose piercing Mr. Trullus? Well…I sneezed.”
Trullus: T’anks, but no t’anks, iz dat it Blyme? I wuz jus’ tryin’ ta do yas a good toin. I kin see myself out den…
Liam Neeson’s next role – Malgorth the Warlord in “Taken 3”
Bit of a prickly affair for po old Trullus, but now in a bit of a pickle, A orck child he neither wants or can profit by. He must be shed of some how, but to where and to whom. He may be a louse, a thief, a swindler, and all around rotten scoundrel but he’s not a murderer.
Interesting juxtaposition between British accents and the phrase, “giving someone the willies.”
I knew that sword was poisoned, but I don’t remember how I knew.Glad to see you back, sukiec. I was missing you.Agreed, Blymie. Every time Phintesmo comes along he just gets better and better.
@Fiendly NT, regarding chills: Sure. I’ve had that happen to me.
Now his hat buckle is staring at me!
Hay Poicy, yer britches full yet?.\\//_
I don’t think ole Blyme will want to be killing Mr. Trullus just yet. He may want to send him packing with the baby….unless Blyme wants to try his hand at diapers ;)
I Love this ‘comix’ strip! and have introduced MANY to it!!!Long Live Goatsucker!!!
