I know what you mean by it, but "Show him a weasel" just sounds like something filthy....

Well, until the Foglios release the Wulfenbach Mk I Anti-Hysteria Device, all we can do is imagine....and imagine....and imagine....

Welcome to the gutter. There's room for all and plenty of comfortable couches to curl up and think dirty in. "When correctly viewed, everything is lewd!"--Tom Lehrer

I don't think my mind has left the gutter since I hit puberty a decade ago. I see smut in -everything-. *grins*

Oh man, I was wondering what happened to that hat. It works better then expected. Though the last guy is worth promoting.

Aha!

Alas, Gil will not be available to help repair his own stuff in the town.

Probably wise on his part.

A man walks down the street in a hat like that, you know he's not afraid of anything. (obFirefly)

Well, on Wulfenbach clanks.

Posted by: Ebony (ebony14)
Posted at: January 13th, 2012 11:29 pm (UTC)

I'm sure it works on non-Wulfenbach clanks as well. IF HAT?=YES, THEN ATTACK?=YES.

It's made by mad scientists.

Now we know there are consequences.

Either that, or it identifies the hat's wearer as the previous known owner, jager-general.

Last guy

I'm not sure that last guy really deserves a promotion. Given the way his face is flattened, I think he may have tried the same speech on Klaus.

Maybe that's where he got his last promotion, too.

It's just a ball of dust.

I wonder what Gil would think of Tarvek being back on Castle Wulfenbach instead of where he's supposed to be (doing repairs on Der Kestle?), but I suppose if he found out it was Othar's fault he'll be more understanding.

I like how his hat is printed Wulfenbash instead of bach.

Posted at: January 13th, 2012 01:51 pm (UTC)

They misspelled "Gilgamesh" too.

Posted by: raybobro (raybobro)
Posted at: January 13th, 2012 02:28 pm (UTC)

I think spelling is not Jagers strong suit.

Posted by: Art Black (lederhosen)
Posted at: January 14th, 2012 12:59 am (UTC)

If the Jagers want to spell it that way, I'm certainly not going to tell them otherwise. Especially after they've gone to so much trouble to make a LOVELY hat.

Posted by: Bunsen (bunsen_h)
Posted at: January 18th, 2012 05:15 am (UTC)

The "Gilgemesh" spelling has been that way on the hat all along, but this is the only time we've seen "Wulfenbash". I think that this is an error in this page.

Posted by: Art Black (lederhosen)

You can also see the bottom of the 'e' in 'Gilgemesh' in the next strip.

Well, the Jägers /are/ good at bashing things, so clearly they're simply sticking with their strong points... :-P

Ah, yes, the return of...The Hat! Oh, and Gil... :)

Oh, and Geekhyena? I hope that gutter has room for one more, because I love your boyfriend's take on panels 7 & 8.

Now, if Gil can take control of the troops, there will be one less thing to worry about. I do agree that, if it hasn't already been done, a weasel-scan is in order for that last guy, followed by a promotion if he is wasp-less.

Hat

I wonder how much that hat weighs

niz hat!

Posted at: January 13th, 2012 09:26 pm (UTC)

One bit of Fridge Logic, though...I didn't think Gil got the hat until well after he'd left the Wulfenbach troops behind...so why are *they* reacting to it? The Jagers, I could see...

Posted by: sam_arkand (sam_arkand)
Posted at: January 13th, 2012 10:55 pm (UTC)

...it's The Hat, man. How can it not be Gilgamesh? It says so right on the crown!

Ten Wulfenbach thalers says that the Schmott Hat becomes official Wulfenbach Heir regalia. It'll be like Commander Vimes and the tights.

Is it just me, or does the expression on the woman right after the clank hint a bit of "I want some of that...hat"?

Who wins for most personal humiliation--Tarvek, MASTER OF DISGUISE!, or Gil-One-Schmott-Guy?

Posted by: Walter Matera (waltermatera)
Posted at: January 14th, 2012 05:32 am (UTC)

Sure looks like it to me. Especially the "Ooooooh!" part.

There is a decided downward trend to her glance . . .

Tarvek

I had forgotten about Tarvek. He'll probably be rofl.

Hell, if he is still in the control room, he probably will think it was worth to being taken out of the castle, bashed on the head twice, kidnapped and dragged all through a war zone in a sack, just for the sake of having a first-line place at Gil's humiliation.

Hell, Gil is lucky Tarvek hadn't time or the materials to prepare, or Tarvek would invent the motion picture just for the purpose of eternalizing the moment Gil enters the place wearing the hat and spitting fire.

Posted by: Steve Hutchison (foomf)
Posted at: January 15th, 2012 02:17 am (UTC)

Interesting. I looked back, and the hat said Gilgemesh Wolfenbach originally.

So it has the property of cumulative alternative humiliation?

In panel 6, what I want to know is, how, without any noticeable change that I can discern, the clank looks ... BOGGLED. And it DOES!
