Aircraft engineer who has no sense of humor that he's aware of.
Where does Tip store all these puppets?
I understand, after all. “Any plan where you lose your hat is a bad plan.” At least that’s what the Jagers say.
I vaguely recall “The Velveteen Rabbit” and I’m guessing that Artie’s problems stem from the book’s notion that a toy can only be real if it is loved by a child. Artie may see a parallel notion that the products of mad science can only be real if humans love them. I can see why that would bug him. Oh, and Flat Stanley WAS up to no good.
I’m guessing that Rip just hit some goon very hard in the gut. I don’t think he likes getting messy with knives.
I always thought motorcycle therapy involved riding the motorcycle, not being given psychotherapy while lying on a motorcycle.
Hmmm…and here I thought this as related to the mind control device that Whimsy gave to Anasigma. In either case (Artie’s guess or mine) the question is why certain people are immune to reality blindness. Is it just that some people (like Tip and Nick) have been immersed in the weird side of reality for so long that they are incapable of becoming reality blind? I’m guessing that Artie being an uplifted gerbil might bring some protection from this sort of thing.
The best laid plans of gerbils and men…
Actually if we think about it, humans also belong in the Animal Kingdom.
