54. When trying to stop the Black Knight, Col. Beowulf goes plop. Is that close enough?<P>55. Either his sheer inability to accept that there's a dragon there, or from the Equinox Ball<P>56. The High Council refers to Mopsy as 'Miss Mopsy'.

Ok, I think I got "Who's demostrates the best hearing?"<P>It would be the Black Knight in this strip.<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.mopsy.com/comics/nn19990610.gif"> <P>He is outside the house at a fair distance and we know, or can assume, that Mopsy and Beowulf are talking pretty quietly.<P>BTW, if any of the other <I>contestants</I> want to jump in with the correct answer as I'm reseaching a correct answer, go right ahead.

Yes, the "winds of November" or "gales of November". It was November in the strip when Beowulf was having trouble making headway.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Lionkingcmsl:

It would be the Black Knight in this strip.
He is outside the house at a fair distance and we know, or can assume, that Mopsy and Beowulf are talking pretty quietly.
</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Indeed. And Mopsy is at Beowulf's height, so both of their voices are small indeed. Considering that the Black Knight is probably 50 to 100 "faerie-lengths" away, his hearing must be as acute as he is ugly.<P>I had almost given up on the Lightfoot business -- good on ya, mate!<P>At this writing, the other topic has not been locked down. I cannot do that, so please check both until it is.<P>------------------

54 is incomplete.
55 is inspired by a particular scene.
56 is good.<P>Regarding the "staging" of a "coupe" -- you did correctly get "two door car" as my meaning. However, I get a different count, as Arthur's family has graduated to a slant-tailed four door from the straight tailed two door that they used consistently earlier in the story.<P><B>Gneech, we need a ruling, please. What is the correct number of panels in which a two-doored autobile appears.</B><P>Answer to your #5 (actually, it is 32 on my list) is the ritual decapitation of an Easter Bunny idol.

<B>A. Pulls on her ears.</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Yes. So she is both a Brit and a yankee.{g}<P>Notes are all paper, received between the first and last panel of a day's strip.<P>As you correctly pointed out, this leaves out the Dame du Lac's request! Also, the non-paper "notes to self" are not "received" during the strip.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>GrimMalady
<B>...Sorry...</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Not to worry. We'll just pull that one.<P>TO ALL

Sorry, I seem to have caused a misunderstanding. I was trying to be tricky, you see, and obscure my meaning through clever word choice. I was referring to October 7, when General Blither got flustered, and in his own words, <I>lost his head,</I> and told Queen Isegrayne that he had conquered the world. In retrospect, I guess I should have waited until your question had been answered first. Again, apologies.

In the interest in an ever advancing score, another answer.<P>According to my dictionary, 'coupe' has several meanings.<P>1) a) A dessert of ice cream or fruit flavored ice, variously garnished and served in a special dessert glass.
b) The stemmed glass in which a coupe is served.<P>2) A shallow, bowl-shaped dessert dish.<P>3) A variant of 'coupe with an apostrophe over the e'<P>...which is a closed carriage with two seats inside and one outside <B><I>OR</B></I> a closed, two-door automobile!<P>I have gone hunting through the arcives, and have tallied the number of times stemmed glasses had appeared, and the number of times closed, two-door cars have appeared. I didn't see any of the other definitions.<P># of glasses: 3<P># of cars: 7<P>So, in summary, the answer to question #38 is seven. Or three.

Okay, Queston 57 FROM Level Head is still listed as open, so I'll see if I can take a shot at a question I'm SUPPOSED to answer.
I have no idea if this is in a strip somewhere - I certainly don't remember it - but my guess would be for the same reason that hummingbirds drink nectar near-constantly - their wingspan-to-body-size ratio is such that they need to flap their wings extremely fast to stay aloft, which burns a LOT of energy, which is why they eat cupcakes in the first place; because cupcakes are incredibly calorific.
How's that?<P>Ooh, and 108; We see Mopsy's domicile when she's packing to go find Arthur at summer camp!<P>------------------

108: Did anyone say 'domicile'?<P>Remember my penchant for wordplay, and logic. {g}
Choice of words, et cetera, is not likely to be accidental.<P>To Aziraphale -- no problem -- they don't do executions like they Easter, huh?<P>Many new questions, anyone could go crazy and take the lead away from LionkingCMSL (well, technically, he can't, and I can't, and The Gneech can't, but anyone else could). As a matter of fact, that's probably what it <I>would</I> take, or maybe the effect it would produce.

107. Either when the archive page on <A HREF="http://www.gneech.com" TARGET=_blank>www.gneech.com</A> had an excerpt from a book about Arthur saying that Jenny's influence on Arthur's future could not be understated (or something like that), or when someone on this forum noted that Jennifer=Guinivere?
114. Once in a bag by Goblins, once by the guards at Fort Knox, and once by the Gnomeco trap during summer camp. That's all I remember. WAIT... which "the Colonel?" I don't believe Colonel Thunder has ever been captured. Nor has Colonel Sanders, not that he or his fast food franchise have ever appeared in NeverNever...
I'll get one of these right one of these days.<P>------------------

86. I'd say Agatha, but she's got three horns... The Dark Lord, perhaps?<P>109. December 13, when Blither orders a dozen... somethings that go BOOM.
