Panels 1 & 2: The Elf brings the stupid in so many ways in these two panels that I have decided to go ahead and combine my comments on them. In Panel 1, we see the Elf stick to his guns and turn down the money, asserting once again, that he “can’t” sell the camera. I’m not certain of the source of that prohibition, but let’s assume the Elf is telling Stringy the truth and he really can’t sell the camera. In that case, Panel 2 makes no sense. What, exactly, is Mark going to tell him to do if he is, in fact, prohibited from selling the camera?
“Rusty, I think this is a good time to give you this .45 Desert Eagle. You go back to the Man in the Mustard Shirt and use this sweet little piece of steel to convince him to give you the $500. Whatever you do, though, don’t let him have the camera. We don’t want to incur the wrath of The All-Knowing Sphere.”
Panel 3: Damn. I see Stringy is still suffering from Tiny Fist Syndrome. The guy’s built like a fireplug, but he’s the got the fist of a 9-year old. Might explain his anger issues.

Panel 1: Could some please explain the physics of this particular scenario? Stringy grabs the camera (or is that a man-purse?) and yanks it towards himself. This, somehow, causes the Elf to jerk backwards as if punched? I just don’t see how that works.
Panel 2: But then, maybe Stringy doesn’t either. Judging from the look on his face, he’s pretty damn scared of whatever it was that knocked the Elf down. Of course, he ought to be paying off the Force, not the Elf.
Panel 3: I thought the Elf was adopted. How did he get Mark’s tiny, tiny feet?

Panel 1: "The baby hyena is trying to eat me!"
Panel 2: And thus Mark began the NAMBLA induction ceremony.
Panel 3: "Jen, you must retrieve the camera. The Shard is inside and the Skeksis are hunting it, too!"
