OYYY, as long as it’s not that jackwad Karl or whatever his name was that Sam and Zed had to deal with many years ago cuz he was smacking Skye around…smacking, not spanking. 🙂 Which as I recall, Sam did while wearing a little black dress with some crazy concealed carry capability. pool dog Nov 08 2017 at 12:08 pm Last we saw of Karl, he was wearing black, along with a white collar. Methinks a little time with the new Karl (if indeed he is such) might do Skye some good. Am I the only one who remembers that sequence in the strip? Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of deplorable! Nov 08 2017 at 2:45 pm Karl did look suspiciously like BBQ Boy we have on occasion now. Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of Deplorable! Nov 08 2017 at 11:15 pm There was also Tucker the Sheriff to think about JTC Nov 08 2017 at 12:21 am Wow, no “fall back” time in the DBD world huh? “Just like her father” would seem to be a bad thing from what we think we know…so yeah lots of questions there. Bernie though? No question at all about what that little troll is. Sabba Hillel Nov 08 2017 at 12:23 am Sam had an invisible pocket dimension that she used to carry her weapons. That way she was never without, but they could never be found if she was searched. That is the only way anything could have fit with what she was wearing. BTW given the appropriate timeframe, who was available to be the father then. I remember it was proven that Toly could not have been the father, though she claied that he was at first. Sabba Hillel Nov 08 2017 at 12:26 am On second thought, maybe Chris will break the fourth wall and admit that she was handing the gun off for him to keep in his office until she needed to reach in and grab it for use. Delilah T. Nov 08 2017 at 12:31 am I believe Heinlein referred to that as a ‘fold-box’, something which could store mass quantities of goods in a very small, nearly invisible space, but which stored equally massive volumes of energy and had to be treated with respect. Halley Nov 08 2017 at 2:08 am Or, perhaps, like Gay’s restrooms from Oz…? MasterDiver Nov 08 2017 at 8:08 am Or the inside of Lady Gwen’s (or any Lady’s) purse! (Watch out for the Guard Alligator!) Zar Belk! JackDeth 72 Nov 08 2017 at 2:37 am “The Galaxy On Orion’s Belt” *Men In Black* Ozymandius Nov 08 2017 at 9:55 pm “Means worlds to me” Merle Nov 08 2017 at 2:00 pm I remember that too !!! 🙂 NotYetInACamp Nov 08 2017 at 2:18 pm They must have all been provided the technology by the Time Lords. 🙂 Those sneaky Time Lords get around. Maybe Skye was a companion to a Time Lord for a while? Skye has the looks. Nobody would notice her being gone for a few minutes, observers time. Those companions get into all sorts of situations, as Skye does. And the Time Lord could have wiped both their memories of the Skye experiences. Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of deplorable! Nov 08 2017 at 2:47 pm Isn’t it traditionally called “hammerspace”? from the ol looney toons days? John Nov 08 2017 at 2:52 pm Yup And as a public service I will _not_ link you to TV Tropes. Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of Deplorable! Nov 08 2017 at 8:29 pm Abandon all hope those who enter it for there is no escaping. Delilah T. Nov 08 2017 at 12:29 am Something strange is going on here. I don’t think either of those children will grow up to be anything like their Mummy. I think they’ll be more like their Auntie Sam. NotYetInACamp Nov 08 2017 at 2:19 pm Notice the pink versus black contrast. Forming personalities? Deplorable B Woodman Nov 08 2017 at 12:49 am Waiting with bated (or baited) breath for the next DBD reveal…….. Fox2! Nov 08 2017 at 12:57 am Which will be Sam. Or Sky. Or Jan. Or Naomi. All of which are greatly appreciated. Interventor Nov 08 2017 at 1:03 am I have baited breath — sushi for supper. JTC Nov 08 2017 at 1:05 am Better than ‘bated breath, we won’t discuss that supper. Delilah T. Nov 08 2017 at 8:20 am Shepherd’s pie for supper. No wolves in sight. Chocolate chip cookies afterwards. Colder than McMurdo Station overnight. Note: S’posed to be another “demonstration” by leftidiots today. Will they freeze for their (lack of) morals? Stay tuned. Should be interesting. cfm56dash7 Nov 08 2017 at 11:07 am Well… it is springtime in McMurdo. Not Paris, so I don’t know what the local man’s thoughts turn to. John Nov 08 2017 at 2:54 pm It’s still too dammed cold. KenH Nov 08 2017 at 1:10 am WHAT sniveling pustule impregnated SKYPE? Frankly, it’s useless information Morgul Lord Nov 08 2017 at 1:12 am “Her father”… Vader? cmblake6 Nov 08 2017 at 3:00 am So many comments already that would have had a like button pushed. WayneM Nov 08 2017 at 3:01 am If memory serves, Skye said Anatoly was the father and “Toly denied as he believed himself to be sterile. Since then, ‘Toly discovered via Naomi that his family jewels are still fertile… Back me up here, boys & girls? Grunt GI Nov 08 2017 at 7:36 am That was the initial teaser…but Skye finally fessed up that it wasn’t Anatoly..but we never got a hint of who it was… Kinda like “Who Shot JR?” “Who screwed Skye?” No doubt the list was long and not distinguished. Pamela Nov 08 2017 at 9:39 am *looks at Grunt over glasses* That’s a good one. Some guy that needed any port in a storm. nonncom Nov 08 2017 at 9:53 am “The girls all look better at closin’ time”…. John D. Egbert Nov 08 2017 at 11:25 am As Mickey Gilley put it many years ago: “Oh, the girls all get prettier at closing’ time; they all begin to look like movie stars . . .” Great song — might be on You Tube. NotYetInACamp Nov 08 2017 at 2:21 pm Beer goggles. JTC Nov 08 2017 at 11:20 pm No need for booze to see the allure of sexy Skye…remember that incredible upside-down spread-eagle promo of her that Chris used to use? Intoxicating all on its own. Where alcohol comes in, as it were, is in overriding the good judgement and wise advice of every man who ever knew and cared about you…”never stick it into crazy”. Bill G Nov 08 2017 at 6:51 am Skye’s default programming undoubtedly tells her “All men are bastards” ,so she doesn’t even need to know whose seed did the deed. Peet Nov 08 2017 at 7:42 am @Deplorable B Woodman: One of Robin Williams’ great lines in Mork and Mindy: Mork: I have a worm on my tongue. Mindy: What?!?! Mork: Baited breath. Norm Nov 08 2017 at 8:01 am Shazbot! Pamela Nov 08 2017 at 9:44 am It appears there has been a distortion in the time vortex. It seems like only yesterday the twins were being held wrapped in blankets by Mari and Kiko. They are now dressed as toddlers wearing Flyers. Chris Muir Nov 08 2017 at 12:11 pm Just realized they gotta be 2, 3 years old had to bump ’em up! It’s weird when characters age 1 year for every five of ours. heh. John Nov 08 2017 at 2:58 pm It’s the result of aging. When we were kids time seemed to drag along. Now the world is accelerating past us. Alex J Nov 08 2017 at 10:23 am Lovely Pamela – Time moves in weird directions in DBD. While genes are an indication of future abilities, environment and upbringing also play a big role. Are you two related? Only by genes and chromosomes. The genes are designer genes, the chromosomes are questionable. Sabba Hillel Nov 08 2017 at 3:35 pm Eddie Drood also has a pocket dimension for items he might need to reach for quickly. Allows him to be Shaman Bond without breaking cover by armoring up. Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of Deplorable! Nov 08 2017 at 9:25 pm Or Sandman Slim’s “room of 13 doors”, I’m only on book four but its reminding me a buttload of Eddie Drood and John Taylor with a heaping helping of Dresden thrown in for good measure. Deplorable B Woodman Nov 08 2017 at 8:50 pm All this conversation sounds like it’s coming out of a Spider Robinson “Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon” story, the conversation, the wit, the scifi, the cross references. Where’s Fast Eddie when you need a piano player? Or Ralph the mutated operated talking German shepherd?
