The Beef.

    Time on his hands and apparently a knack for rigging up transmitters since most drones don’t have an audio link.

      General Zod was one of Superman’s arch enemies. He liked to order people to kneel and swear allegiance to him. (I only know this because my kids were into comic books in the ’80s. Really.)

        ZoD goes back to the 60s, at least.

    That could be interesting in a totally perverted way.
    The Hildebeast demanding complete subservience vs. the Shariabeasts demanding the same and her letting them in the country like The Wannabe King.

      Actually, that seems to be what *ALL* the various agitator-types clamoring for “equality” want.

      They don’t want to be “equal members in a world of equals”. To them, (somehow) “equality” means “WE get to make the rules; and YOU get to follow them. Also, you foul deniers of our Absolute Superiority, er, Equality … Kiss My Shoes – now.”

      That is NOT the equality I signed up for.

    Thanks, Chris, a little light hearted humorous interlude.

    I expect to see that boy’s drone play a more serious role in a future strip as a spotter against border jumping intruders (DHS et al, southern scum, Quanderthals). Just be sure to have the wings painted a flat sky blue, light gray, or blue gray, in order to camouflage better against the sky.

      If he camo’s it too well, then we can’t see it either. LOL !

        Transparency – like Wonder Woman’s airplane.

    What’s with the hat, is red beard a Rastafarian? If so I want so Bob Marley tunes on the jukebox at the DDQ.

      Or a Pastafarian. (Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster). Too bad colanders are so hard to draw.

        (I wasn’t saying this was a badly drawn Colander, not a hat. What I was trying to say is that it would be fun to have a pastafarian character turn up.)

    • February 22, 2016 at 2:54 am

      That is a Chef’s cap. By rights, he should also fave a beard cover.

    • February 22, 2016 at 10:35 am

      Before I read the strip and just saw the panels, I thought he was wearing a hat similar to the type that Ahmad Shah Massoud wore in Afghanistan. I was wondering if the new cook did some time overseas.

      But yeah, I think it’s a hair net / hat! : )

    Now it just needs to be outfitted with a Zardoz head….

    • February 22, 2016 at 1:16 am

      Oh, gawwd dammit! Every time I successfully forget that movie, someone mentions it and reminds me…

      • February 22, 2016 at 2:22 am

        Thanks for the warning.

        What’s not to love about Sean Connery in something other than a James Bond suit? Or, out of one?

      • February 22, 2016 at 8:23 am

        Watching Connery trying to use a freakin’ Webley-Fosbery Automatic Revolver loaded with theatrical 4-in-1 blanks.

        The W-F was recoil-operated, and rotated the cylinder by tracking a fixed stud in the lower frame against zigzag slots in the cylinder. Also, it was single-action like a Peacemaker, but the hammer wasn’t connected to a cylinder rotating hand because it didn’t have one.

        So every time he fired it, he had to grab the barrel with his off hand and yank the whole top half of the revolver back to rotate the cylinder and recock the hammer. Which looks really dorky, in addition to probably getting you killed in a real fight.

        They should have given him something like a Webley MK V or VI double-action and left it at that.



      • February 22, 2016 at 10:48 am

        Well alright then, I invite you to go watch the 1998 movie The Avengers. It’s got Sean Connery in a Scottish Lord’s outfit and Uma Thurman – it must be good, right?

        …No, don’t do that; I like you too much for that, Pamela.

        Seen it 🙂 .
        He was absolutely dreamy in Darby O’Gill and the Little People.

    Ah, the possibilities…

    • February 22, 2016 at 7:13 pm

      I was thinking that a drone would be great to fly over the ol’ swimming hole every once in a while, ya know…see what kind of wild life you might spot?

    Chris, thank you for this nod to Damon’s original incarnation as a geek. I remember those early days with great fondness. BTW, does he still have those T-bills squirreled away? Or has he converted them to a slightly safer investment?

    So, what else will be forthcoming from Damon’s spare time?

    • February 22, 2016 at 8:52 am

      Puberty and all of its nuances will complicate the issues.

    • February 22, 2016 at 12:16 pm

      Well, if last weeks episodes were any indication…maybe another brother/sister for the growing brood?

      If you want to give Damon/Jan something to do, let them start building a website/shipping company for the DDQ and all of its lovely heat seared and sauce-for-dipping meat candy that’s sure to come from the kitchen!

      MMmm…BBQ. Wet or Dry, its ALWAYS good.

      BTW, folks, that rumbling you heard?

      Wasn’t a earthquake, just my belly!
