Meanwhile, back in the dysfunctional universe…

Hey, do you guys remember those fan fics called Sunday Brain Bogglers? Well, today’s comic contains the words “brain boggler”, and runs on a Sunday. How inherently funny. Yup.

Slylock Fox – May 12, 2013


Between runaway children, stolen food, and a rash of fish murders, Slylock didn’t know where to look first. Fortunately, the forces of gravity and a crack to the noggin took him to the heart of the operation.

“I dunno, Sly, you sure this is a hideout? It’s in the middle of the park.”

“Silence, Max! My deductive skills are working.” The fox took an enormous swig of warm, slushy milk.

The next 10 hours were spent vomiting and arresting cows.

    How did Slylock miss seeing that the hideout was occupied at that very instant?! Did he not see the spider there, the spider who is obviously an accomplice at the very least? The spider who may have poisoned that milk, knowing that Slylock would foolishly drink it?

    (If mayflies can be anthros, then surely spiders qualify.)

      That is the most morbid Slylock Fox I’ve ever seen. “Yeah, you won’t live long anyway. Let’s see if this crap is poisonous!”

        Here’s what I wrote about it back when it was printed. I wasn’t “Ratiocinator” back then and mostly just read the posts and comments at The Comics Curmudgeon without getting involved in the discussion, but on this particular day I made an exception:

        “Excuse me sir, I’m terribly sorry that you’ll be dropping dead literally any day now, but it turns out that nature’s cruel joke on you is lucky for the rest of us! Who will live to a ripe old age, unlike you. Anyway, we’re trying to figure out if this woman is a fraud, so if you’ll just have a sip of her ‘eternal youth’ potion and allow all of us to watch you intently for the next week to see whether or not you croak as scheduled, that’d be great.”

        It’s a good thing that unlike all the other anthropomorphic animals in the strip, the mayfly is actual size. That meant Weber was able to draw him flipping off Slylock without anybody at the newspaper noticing.

    You really should have a tag for birds stealing food. It happens every week.
