    Good joke, but why six legs?

    Maybe because they are not chameleons.

    Maybe Scott has the number of limbs on a reptile somehow mixed up with the count for an insect.

    But they’ve definitely got chameleon heads and tails…

    and the joke is based on color-changing.


    And yeah, yeah, we now know that most chameleons don’t change color to match their surroundings…

    It’s more likely to be a response to environmental factors, or stress, or to communicate with another chameleon.


    So let’s just call it “cartoon biology”,

    and file it with other “only-in-a-comic-strip” reptile traits like speech, wearing clothes, and working in an office.


    Afficionado… he said he was at the office, but his coloration gives away his lie….

    His chest has changed color to match the bar he was facing….

    including the glassware and the bottle.

    The peaked crown and curled tail indicate chameleons; which make it a very clever joke. However, the six limbs are incorrect. So, Scott Hilburn, what are they, reptile or mutant?

    PCOLLI, I was thinking the same thing. Though they should’ve put something “Alienese” on the wall or in the Window to make it clearer.

    I figured it out; Martian chameleons.

    There’s a bar in the area called The Office. Convenient, you don’t have to lie.

    Maybe a gecko and it’s sticky?

    A lot of men develop bar bellies as they age.

    I’m thinking they only look like they’ve got six legs because they’ve both been drinking.

    All right, so how come the image on his front doesn’t match the inside of his coat? . . . If his coloration really changes to match his current surroundings . . . How long ago did he leave the bar, anyway?

    I’d call this “The Night of the Iguana”.
