I was chatting to my friend Quikthnkr about yesterday’s HAFT comic, and that I thought perhaps I could have revealed more in the last frame about the Admiral’s feelings other than, “Nobody messes with my wife!” He e-mailed me some suggestions for other things I could have put in the last bubble:
CN (comedy): Nobody plays with my toys without permission! (works on several levels)
CN: (Darker Comedy): Nobody breaks my toys and gets away with it! (Again, several levels)
CN: (Romantic): Hang on baby. Daddy’s coming.
CN: (Hopeful): She’s alive. There’s still a chance.
CN: (Angry funny): %$%#!@*%$#$%#@&%* MIB!
CN: (Just Angry): I’m going to start killing and I’m not sure when I’ll stop!
CN: (Corn Romance): Hold on my love, I’ll save you!
CN: (Really Dark Comedy): Did I make the payment on Barbie’s Life Insurance Policy this month?
CN: (Sadistic): I wonder what they are doing to her? And can I watch?
CN: (Whiny): Why does this crap always happen to me?
CN: (Perverted/Random): I wonder what she’s wearing for the torture?
CN: (Gross): That better not be the finger she checks my prostate with!
CN: (Prayerful): Please let her be ok.
CN: (Political): I wonder if they’ve tried the waterboarding yet?
CN: (Self Involved): Well at least she won’t be laughing AND pointing next time I can’t get it up.
CN: (Oblivious): I wonder why they call them “Dog Tags?”
CN: (Religious): Catholic! She told me she was Presbyterian!
CN: (preposterous): If I eat these I will gain her power!
The man is a genius! Can we just say I intended ALL those meanings with the one line?
