Don't worry, I'm sure it's nothing an FBI agent, three outtimers (two posing as students, one posing as a teacher), Elliot, and a seemingly permafemale Tess can't handle!

... Not that Tess or Kate actually did much besides run away and/or get beaten on.

The first line was amazingly prophetic...

From the teacher's expression in the last panel -- frustrated rather than amazed or bemused -- I can only assume that being a teacher in Moperville North is somewhat of an unusual challenge. That, or being Tedd's teacher.

Well, teachers at Moperville North have to put up with monster attacks, an insane principle who probably spends more on murals then teaching materials, students that frighten them immensely, and other such things. Being Tedd's teacher means putting up with Tedd.

So, um, both I guess.

Hey, Chaos? Would you mind just doing a single thread if you absolutely -must- do daily one-line reviews of six year old three panel sketch comics?

It's a fair cop. As to the scary students bit, I still consider Susan's "Your narcs don't have the guts!" line and the panel that follows it to be a classic of the genre. :)

Why? It's not taking up unrenewable pagespace. This as on-topic as anything here, with the exception of the current reaction threads, and much more on-topic than some of the fluff that seems to find a permanent home here.

People are currently interested. When they stop being interested, this stuff will sink off the first page, just like every other thread that has run out of juice. Until then, just let them get on with their meta-critical conceit. Some of us find it amusing.

Calm down, dear, it's just a popular series of threads we're doing for fun.

I've noticed that before.

Chronos:

Wow, no fourth-wall breaking. This is jarring!

And such a humble start after all that introduction buildup?

Why the heck is goo important to their future? I wonder if that's supposed to be funny, or just represent a generic lab experiment.

...Also, it would seem Tedd is either Mihoshi-level dangerous in a lab, or a bit of a mad-scientist.

Crystal:

The preceding were my thoughts upon first reading the 2002-01-28 strip.

In reply to Binary Wraith, I am among those who enjoy these S.T.O.R.Y. threads. I also prefer that strip receive it's own thread - if it were all in one thread, we'd wind up jumping around all through the archives, as different people re-read through them or got around to posting at different paces. By having separate threads, those of us who come in late don't have to jump into the middle of a discussion of a totally different strip than the one we're commenting on.
