Panel 1: Yeah, the talking bouffant might draw attention to itself if it sounds anxious when asking about a camera. If a hair-do came up to me talking fast and sweating profusely, I might think something was odd, too.
Panel 2: "Um...wait...I mean, do you have any Grey Poupon?"
Panel 3: Boy, it's a shame the talking bouffant didn't ask this question, I bet it would get along handily with the talking eyebrow.
Panel 1: Mark drives a flying saucer and these dudes drive a school bus. Cool. While I appreciate the high variability in transportation modes in this strip, can I say that I find the attenuated hypothetical causal chain here to be slim justification for a crime. I mean, I know criminals are supposed to be stupid and all that, but c'mon! Some kid is going to go around boasting about the picture he took of his parents at a greasy spoon and his friends will recognize the people in the background? Hell no, they won't, they'll be too busy rolling on the ground laughing at the Elf.
Panel 2: The feds? Investigating a burglary? In the Lost Forest? Riiiiiight.
Panel 3: Is it me, or did Stringy Hair put on about 15 pounds of muscle between panel 2 and panel 3?
Panel 1: Isn't that sweet? Stringy Hair and Turtleneck have a cabin on the lake. No doubt stocked with back issues of Honcho and 100 Percent Beef. I'm beginning to think that their interest in the Elf's camera may be prurient.
Panel 2: That must be one of those rare Mexican otters. I can't think of any other explanation for why it would be doing the Macarena.
Panel 3: The barn? Really? The barn? Good lord. I know I have a dirty mind, and all, but fuckin-a, the JS makes it so damn easy with this strip. The barn....
