Attack Interrupted

Link to today’s strip (eventually).

Today’s strip was not available for preview…hey, remember when I said that about six times in a row?  Ah, memories.

I assume that we’ll get the “pizza monster” shambling around some more, and raising, well, noise levels if nothing else.  Still have one more day before we can reveal the scamp behind it all!

Of course, Batiuk could throw us a curve ball–it’s not unknown for him to suddenly break, say, an arc dealing with CTE and suicide so that he could, say, shill his book for the billionth time.

I guess we’ll all find out later!

    How thick are those pizza boxes? I count twenty-eight box-layers in that stack, so they’d have to be three inches high apiece to be as taller than a man, or at least a Funky. I think that’s a lot bigger than the typical pizza box. Or does Montoni’s pizza demand special biohazard precautions when being delivered?

    In tomorrow’s retcon everyone remembers all the Pizza Monster’s earlier visits, but can’t explain why they showed up for this one.

    “Where’s your favorite haunt again? I’m not sure everyone caught the name of the restaurant, even though we’re standing in it and its name is emblazoned on every inch of you.”

    Flash Fact: If you say the name Montoni’s three times fast while looking in a mirror at midnight during a new moon, It will give you hellish diarrhea. In other words, the same as if you eat Montoni’s pizza at any time.

    This is the world’s dumbest Halloween stunt: how do you scare people who willingly eat Montoni’s pizza? You can’t threaten them with seconds, because they know they won’t live that long.

      For that matter, how do you scare anyone in Westview? They live in a constant state of existential dread. “Oooo, I’m going to take your soul!” “Good, get on with it. I wondered when it was my turn.”

    What’s with the genuine fear faces on Funky and Holly? This “pizza monster” has human hands and neither of those hands is holding a weapon. It is clearly some guy (good grief, it’s probably Crazy Harry) in a costume… Do they also think the Kansas State mascot is really a giant purple cat despite it’s 100% human arms and legs?

      How would anyone react to this other than laugh at it? The costume and the performance are so bizarre, your brain can’t process it any other way. I daresay the patented Funky Winkerbean smirk wouldn’t be out of place here.

    I really, really wish Batiuk had never found out it’s possible to rotate in art software.

    I really hate these sidewards single-panelers. I agree with billy, I think it’s Crazy Harry but who the hell knows with this nut. Maybe it’ll turn out to be Susan Smith and she’ll demand to be delivered to Les so Batiuk can re-live THAT old story too.

    “Pizza Monster”…that BatYap, all the imagination of a used tissue stuck to the bottom of a wastebasket. All the grease in those boxes is probably pretty flammable, I say let’s find out.

    Watch them be angry at Crazy for fooling them instead of themselves for being so stupid, Shaggy and Scooby would be in their face about how lame the costume is.

    So whoever’s doing this didn’t plan it with Funky and Holly? Guess it’s a good thing Funky doesn’t have a shotgun and is jumpy. We already know he doesn’t have a sense of humor.

    I hope whoever is in there isn’t going commando. I can see some poor unsuspecting child…”Mommy, this pizza tastes funny!”

      “No honey, your pizza doesn’t taste funny. We’re in Funky Winkerbean, nothing funny exists here.”

    I’ll go with the consensus that Crazy Harry is inside all those boxes.
    And by the by the dialogue and the drawn expressions are in complete conflict. They both look scared while the dialogue is sitcom dad level nonsense. Do the Author and the Artist talk to each other?

    If the boxes are new, it’s Wally. If the boxes are old, gathered over months, and reek from the fetid remnants of countless Montoni’s late-night fever pies, it’s Crazy Mailman.
