Took me a couple of seconds.
I do Rose…
The two camps are separated by water, which has an approximately neutral pH.
Haha! Her face in the second-to-last panel
They do, Rose. It’s just that their reactions are typically neutral.
“…fun to toss random stuff in a barrel of acid.” She should work at a Clean and Coat line for steel. My (now retired) buddy used to send his rusty tractor parts through the line. A few minutes in HCl followed by a phosphate coating was the underpinning to the best looking paint job at the tractor parade in July.
Well played Rose, well played indeed.
Anyone else notice ‘Base camp’ is a blue balloon? Nice touch.
Just some good, basic humor..!
Nice one, Will. :)a Snug Harbor joke….
Someone’s tossing his teddy bear into the barrel of acid? Heavens, no!
Huh, I would have expected Spud to be more salty, as a reaction
Count me as one of them, Rose.
Some of us do, Rose.
All your base are belong to us!
Someone must have told Amelia about the old Letterman show, where they used to throw things off a tall building or run them over with a steamroller. That was oddly satisfying to watch! Viewers would write in requests – one of my favourites with the steamroller was “a nutritious breakfast”.
Base Camp would be just as good for Amelia. Concentrated or strong bases are caustic on organic matter and react violently with acidic substances.
Waiting for someone to point out that you don’t approach a vat or barrel of acid with bare hands or bare skin (even if you’re wearing googles). Amelia dropping things that close to the barrel is risking acid splash and that ain’t going to be fun for the skin. (Okay, I pointed it out!)
Not another salty comment…
Rose has a caustic sense of humor, I will not lye.
I’m still entertained by the Blend-O-Matic of SNL infamy.
I got it Rose!
Can you play acid rock on a bass guitar?
Please help. Even after reading all of the comments, I don’t get it…..
Comedy may not be your forte, but you have oh so many other talents….
This comic has eroded my sense of humor.
What could be more fun than a barrel of monkeys on acid?
Intro panel has Seagull looking at a barrel of acid while wearing goggles.
The seagull, not the barrel of acid.
Rose is based.
A typical reaction
I have made that joke with the same jazz hands. I no longer get invited to dinner parties. Sigh. Rose for the win!
On pane 3, I wonder what that kid is carrying in that box, and why the other kid wants to burn a teddybear to a crisp in acid! Gah!
Yup that joke passes the Litmus test…
