just checked out today's MitDoP, and i just have to say, ian, you are truly evil. this is completely hysterical, on so many levels. (and to think i was worried that all those nasty things the sluggites were saying might get you down.)

anyway, it looks like you are having a lot of fun with this - hope it goes on forever!

I got a great big laugh out of this too. I loved that you made Mosp nipply. I swear, I think they must keep the female Friend's changing rooms freezing cold. And I had always heard it got so hot when you're filming under all those lights. That sound stage must have the best air conditioning system in the world!

Still loving your MITDOP strips. Go get 'em Ian!

I will add my support as well... I'm really enjoying it. Great to see you're keeping it up, Ian (much like mosp/isp/osp's nipples...)

<plunging recklessly into the abyss>

you know, nipples can also indicate a degree of ....interest - so it doesn't bode well for the relationship that mosp's disappeared when terribus showed up.

'course, that line of thought suggests she's more interested in reakk and/or psyk....now _that's_ a scary thought.

although psyk does have that intellectual thing going for him......

Thanks a bunch, everyone! The fact is, I've been having a blast drawing MITDOP! It's a lot of work, but a lot of fun too, and I can't thank Pete enough for this opportunity! As for Mosp's er, enhancements, if you thought they were funny or otherwise liked 'em, they were MY idea, but if you didn't, they were Pete's idea! :D

Later,
Ian

once again, i must voice my approval of MitDoP. you had me a leeetle worried when isp and osp ordered up the mice, but, as they say, all's well that ends well. and who wouldn't love meeces to pieces? squeak!


that terribus seems to be an experienced politician.....he's collected quite a constituency.

Actually, Mouse, i'm sorry to report that one of the mice in the strip didn't survive! He was, well, suffocated! Can you tell which one? Hope he wasn't a relative of yours! :D

Later,
Ian

I feel fortunate that no escargo was ordered.

YES!!!

They certainly aren't fit for human consumption. But I guess the French can eat them, if they want. I'll just stick to my Freedom Fries! :wink:

you know, the other night i was watching the food network, and they had a show all about various foods with 'french' in their names - french toast, french bread, french chew taffy, french-fried onion rings (the ones used in green bean casserole). it was copyrighted 2002, so clearly it was sheer coincidence that it was on - but it gave the show an interesting irony.


i'm always getting the wrong message from mass media....

I have actually tried escargo at a seafood restaurant in Victoria, BC. Now that I have, I don't have to any more. I feel the same way about frogs' legs.

i've had frog legs, and they weren't actually too bad (of course, they were breaded and fried, so i probably didn't actually taste much frog). logically, i figure i should like escargot, because i like clams and mussels and such....but somehow, emotionally.....just not quite the same. maybe it's because clams don't have a face....and i don't see them squashed on the patio.

You could have my problem. They're a novelty to my wife, since they don't have them in Indiana. So, she doesn't get rid of them and thinks they're cute. Hmmf... go fig.

i actually thought they were kinda cute myself - until i started trying to grow basil. i guess basil-stuffed escargot could actually be a delicacy - but it'll never replace pesto.

I had trouble with snails and earwigs when I tried to grow hops. Let's just say that I lost the battle. :(

Jeff and I tried the escargo on our honeymoon at the French restaurant at Epcot. They were awful! And this is coming from someone who grew up eating calamari. Escargo are just nasty!

I tried Escargot once. It was nice, but way too expensive. I suppose my favourite unusual foods, though, are 1. haggis, 2. Pork and apple sausages (or zausidges, if you prefer), 3. sushi, 4. pork and leek zausidges. All these I cannot recommend highly enough =)

i must confess to a persistant curiosity about haggis, despite knowing its ingredients. (and why are lungs called 'lights', anyway?) but there don't seem to be any scottish restaurants in these parts.

sushi i consume far too regularly to have it count as 'unusual'.

actually i suppose that's my main claim to weird eating - i have a great affection for raw meat. steak tartar, sushi, sashimi, carpaccio, oysters - i've tackled them all!
rats...now i'm kinda regretting this nice vegetarian lunch....
