Peter's Thoughts

On this brisk, starry evening in the bustling street outside the concert hall, no one suspected the shocking events that would soon unfold. For many years afterward Timby would awake in the midnight and experience a fleeting pang of terror as he recalled them, but then his head would clear and he would again feel at home in the desperately errant world that had since resulted.

It all started out innocently enough with the valet, who was having difficulty finding the correct key on a large and confusing key chain. The precise sequence of escalation has never been clear, but the sparse evidence that remains yields the unanimous conclusion from all concerned that things began going wrong when the keynote speaker inside mentioned dentures.

"Ahem.

"To the owner of the 1964 mustang convertible:

"We regret to inform you that very little of it remains within the planet's gravity.

"However, for your transportation needs, we offer with our condolences, a giant squid.

"That is all. Thank you."

Ha

I love how, in Timby's mind, a giant squid is somehow an adequate replacement for the car. Perhaps he expects the owner to saddle up and ride it to work?

O.o

Sometimes, there are no words.

I will say though, that for the blog entry beneath the comic, methinks I detect a hint of influence from Lemony Snicket... ;)

Everything looks perfect from far away.

Oh yes...

Only the best. ;)

xD

That's made of epicness.

BTW, my brothers once played Ultimate Frisbee with a squid...

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

I don't care what the devil's gonna do!

Really? I wouldn't have guessed that a squid would be very good at that game. Sure, they can throw, but running...?

Say it ain't so!

Not a '64 Mustang convertible! Why not a 1974 Pinto or a 1977 VW Rabbit?

Wondrful, Peter! I love the first 3 panels, especially. One gets the feeling of solemnity and gravity, if you'll pardon the pun.

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.

Such a shame!

That was kinda my thought too. Out of curiosity I looked up pics of it and I was like, "Aw, no! It's such a beautiful car!"

Everything looks perfect from far away.

Hey now, I like those. :-|

Anyway, I've looked at this several times over the course of (yesterday) on my phone, but only just logged in on the computer to comment. I love this one! I can't really give a good critique, it's just really good. :D

It lost, actually. It was in many pieces by the end of the game. And it didn't have to run...it kinda... flew. XD

It seems the emotional impact of it being a Mustang was everything I hoped it would be, and more! :D

And that's a hilarious car by the way. Didn't know Volkswagon had it in them. :P (In kind of a good way.)

Sounds quite like the Mustang in the comic. As a substitute, then, it simply wouldn't do at all...
