Tons o' Toms

That’s a lotta turkeys. Uhh… don’t they need to be refrigerated? Or are there live turkeys in those boxes? Nate plays the role of Capt. Obvious and draws a withering response from the One-Armed Queen. I don’t watch any of the C.S.I. franchise, but is it such a popular show that the title has worked itself into the lexicon? TB seems to think so.

    Funky Cancersalmonella?

    It’d be way funnier if they really were live turkeys. Becky holding a hatchet and saying, “The hard part is getting them to stay still”, or maybe having her remove her shoes and saying “OK, turkey-butchering time!” while Nate contemplates that mental picture with wide-eyed horror. But my guess would be a few weak puns involving turkeys and maybe a gag about dealing with the morons who inhabit Westview instead.

    Later in the day, Beckers will be found by Wally out behind her house feeding live turkeys into a wood chipper, fifty or sixty of them, with her weeping and laughing at the same time. Wally’s blood runs cold as he notices an ominous patch of dead skunk hair among the chipper effluent.

    I suppose if anyone fits the description of “top men” in Westview, it’s Nate…

    Sharp-eyed Charlene has spotted TB’s little joke. Look closely at the carton in panel 1.

    I thought of the last shot in Raiders of the Lost Ark too, but couldn’t think of how to work it in. Nicely done, Skink!

    I’m not a huge fan, but CSI is pretty popular. Doesn’t it get big ratings?

    I’d say bigger than this storyarc…

    I don’t doubt that it does, but I haven’t heard people tossing that acronym around like they do in the Funkiverse.

    You know, no one can ask a simple question in the Funkyverse without getting a smart-ass answer. It’s invariably a lame smart-ass answer at that.

    Who’s there?
    Sam and Ellea
    Sam and Ella who?

    Salmonella will get you if you buy on of these Band turkey’s.

    Maybe…just maybe this is a sedge-way to all of Westview getting deathly sick.

    Believe it or not, Folks, there was a “Sam & Ella’s” restaurant in Cleveland–on the east side of town, near the Cleveland Clinic.
    It’s now closed.

    great riff.
