Rip Haywire by Dan Thompson for August 24, 2009
Rip & co. attack the scorpion's desert lair. Rip: The only rock you're going to crawl under will have iron bars attached. Scorpion: You can't corner a scorpion without expecting a sting. Rip: Ugh. Pffft! Scorpion: That dart will paralyze you for 12 hours. Long enough to destroy your reputation, eh? Rip: If this gets on soldier of fortunes's gossip page, I'm ruined!
