T-Rex: I woke up this morning and found out that there's a fancy new building going up downtown and GUESS WHAT EVERYBODY: they named it after me!
T-Rex: And it turns out there's all these children around named after me too??
T-Rex: So I looked into it and every band formed in the past decade was named after me! Heck, there's even a handful of COUNTRIES that were named after me. Plus, you know every single dog alive today? I don't want to alarm you, but every one of those dogs was named after me too! Dromiceiomimus: And yet, I have never visited T-Rexia while listening to the latest #1 hit from "T-Rex and his Muscle Ts".
T-Rex: Look, all I'm saying is that if you look up on a clear night with a good telescope... Utahraptor: ...yes?
T-Rex: You just might see the hundreds of distant stars and extra-solar planets named after me, T-Rex! Utahraptor: You're aware that there's no star called "T-Rex", right? T-Rex: Of course! Narrator: WHAT?! IS T-REX CRAZY?? FIND OUT BY READING THE NEXT PANEL!
Narrator: NO, T-REX ISN'T CRAZY!! HE'S JUST USING THE PHRASE "NAMED AFTER ME" TO MEAN "THEY WERE GIVEN NAMES AFTER I HAD BEEN GIVEN A NAME"; THIS IS A 100% VALID USE OF ENGLISH Narrator: the end
What are the haps my friends
January 18th, 2012:Thanks to everyone who came out to the comics talk with me and Joey - we had a great time and even learnt about bears that busted into people's houses. Could this be the mark of a good talk?? It seems likely.
