No, Red Shirts (in this context) are the non-character Star Trek crew members who will, for example, get killed in the first scene by an alien monster to show the viewers just what it’s capable of. Watch the movie Galaxy Quest, for a parody of this genre.
“Exile”? We’ll talk about that when we come back.
For more gestures (not historically authentic), watch the taunting Frenchmen in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Yes, it is. Americans use one finger, British use two (as a rough, general guide). I have been told it originated after the English army under King Henry V defeated the French at the Battle of Agincourt. To permanently neutralise the French archers, the English systematically removed their first two fingers. So, ever after, as a taunt, the English archers proffered their own two fingers to remind them who had won. (I can’t vouch for the reliability of this story.)Not all Americans understand that while a two-fingered peace sign can be a gesture of friendship and peace, the same gesture reversed is… well, reversed. That’s how a friendly gesture can unwittingly be an insult to British or Australians. When President George Bush visited Australia in the late 1980’s, he smiled and gave what he thought was a friendly gesture as his car passed a group of protesting lamb farmers. They were NOT happy.
I don’t know why, but at the moment I’m finding Endtown strangely satisfying.
Assuming the baseball bats were of good quality, then judging how they snapped from hitting the ditto shield, imagine what havoc they would have wreaked if they had connected properly with a person! Those two security wardens would really have broken bones.
Duffy’s secret mutant power is irritating people.
And remember, people, Aaron Neathery doesn’t work part-time on Endtown, he does it full-time, and it’s almost impossible to make a living from it. When the installments come out late, it means he’s working even harder than ever to keep up with the schedule. This talented human being is pouring his body and soul into this project, to create an ongoing work of wonder for YOU. To keep it going – and to help ensure the episodes come out on time – please support the creator. The Patreon address is in the strip border.
Remember – Duffy is reluctant to get onto the subject of how he let it kill his brother, and then how he drafted Chic to use as bait for a second try.
Oh, how touching.
