Even Tedd's pipe isn't safe any more. That one is probably Lord Tedd's fault though. After the goo monster failed he must have decided to go with bubble monsters. It's not that good a choice really, as while if you get enough of them you could probably do a bit of damage, mostly they simply don't last long enough to take out their opponent.

Sweet pipe though. Well, aside from that whole painful evisceration thing. That part kinda sucks, what with the injury along with the embarrassment of having been beat up by bubbles.

This strip is a metaphorical premonition of his future struggle to restore Grace's bubbles. See how he produces the bubbles himself and is then laid low by them? It's sort of a self-destructive oedipus-complex bounced off your girlfriend. Even Elliot's last comment is a reference to how Tedd gets things wrong in his relationship with Grace. However, the bubbles only gives him scratches which will heal quickly leaving no scars, indicating that things will be perfectly fine in the end.

Hmm, I didn't know my analysis -knob went to eleven. :P Thank you for reading this gibberish!

== Spring, 2006 ==

Chronos: Another break from the story, eh?

I agree with Elliot - I wouldn't have expected any of those early strips to be considered offensive, either. The bikini and stripping element on their own, maybe, but in context I thought their offensiveness was dealt with; and the violence didn't even occur to me as being a problem.

The thing with the bubbles is amusing, as is Elliot's reaction.

== Oct, 2008 ==

Crystal: Is the only reason this isn't in filler because it was posted before there was a filler section? I personally think this and similar filler-like strips in the main section should be moved to the filler section, so they don't interrupt the flow of the story when reading through the archives.

While that "Bubbles" might be more likely to beat someone up, I think this "Bubbles" would do more damage.
