    Freaking hilarious. The timing of this was spot on.

  2. Bo Lumpkin

    Perfect timing. Good one.

  3. Chris

    Thanks, guys!
    And thanks for the email, Andy. Typo fixed! Phew! :)

    You gotta love Colin’s face.

  5. DadaHyena

    Ainu…the mountain folk? Is that right?

    At least she’s not a Yeti (sorry, wrong country).

  6. Chris

    Luemas: Well, he’s probably not too happy about it right now :)
    DadaHyena: Basically. The Ainu are the indigenous people of northern Japan. Yeti, on the other hand, were dropped everywhere all over the Earth by the aliens, when they came to build the pyramids.

    Moms are SO good at the back-handed BURNS. You never see ‘em coming.

    But they do burn, don’t they? Long and simmering, like a sunburn. :)

  10. David

    BURN! Ha! Isn’t it funny that it’s often saying things at the wrong time that seem so right in the moment.

  11. SpilledInkGuy

    Yikes! :)

  12. George

    Sprout’s timing was superb! This was a great strip, Chris. :D

  13. DadaHyena

    Regarding our discussion above, there was an old Toho movie called “Monster Snowman” (known in the US as “Half-Human”) which featured not only Yetis but somewhat-racist depictions of Ainu natives. I haven’t seen it (it’s extremely hard to find, especially in Japan now that things are more PC), but it might be an interesting watch.

    Sprout would probably want a Yeti for a pet.

  14. Bob

    Love this one!

  15. loretta

    It’s perfect time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy.

    I have learn this submit and if I could I want to counsel you some attention-grabbing things or advice.

    Perhaps you can write next articles relating to this article.
    I wish to learn even more things approximately it!
