<3 The Foglio clan is at Arisia right now, so this LJ post is brought to you by -- Alice <3
Yes, that guy should definitely get a promotion!

That goes without saying. :]
I know what you mean by it, but "Show him a weasel" just sounds like something filthy....
(courtesy of my boyfriend, how panels 7 & 8 could also have gone: !"Guards! We've got an intruder on the -"*ziiiiiiiip*"Oooooooh! It IS you!"Yes, our minds rarely leave the gutter....and this page had me laughing so hard I could barely breathe! Such perfect humor!
And an ancient meme in the board.
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)
The more outrageous, the better.
Wait... it works on clanks?
Well, on Wulfenbach clanks.
I'm sure it works on non-Wulfenbach clanks as well. IF HAT?=YES, THEN ATTACK?=YES.
Now we know there are consequences.Either that, or it identifies the hat's wearer as the previous known owner, jager-general.Edited at 2012-01-14 06:04 pm (UTC)
Gotz to love da hat!
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.
there are promotions and then there are promotions...
Maybe that's where he got his last promotion, too.
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.
They misspelled "Gilgamesh" too.
I think spelling is not Jagers strong suit.
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.
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.
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.
He says "yay" ^_^ It had me in stitches last night....
I wonder how much that hat weighsniz hat!
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...
...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.
That's how such traditions start.
OOoooooo, poor Gil ....*falls off chair giggling*
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?
Sure looks like it to me. Especially the "Ooooooh!" part.
And she's the only one not looking at the hat
There is a decided downward trend to her glance . . .
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.
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!
