Biff Boffenheimer and the Thief of Y – Chapter 7, Act 2, Strip 17

Yeah, Mopey has seen enough. On the one hand, because she’s generally quite perceptive, and on the other hand…well, she knows about those other birthmarks the Professor has, but has no particular urge to actually see them. On top of that, the sight of the Professor’s tenure mark is a bit frustrating for her, because it reminds her that she’ll never have tenure, no matter her academic excellence. She’s looked all over her body for the all-important mark, and couldn’t find it…there were plenty of other birthmarks, usually in the common shapes of skulls, pitchforks, demons, the number “666”, and so on, but nothing that would precisely help her with her scientific career. >_> Snobbish scientists, valuing descent from Solomon higher than descent from Satan…

Speaking of irritated females, Biff is…in a bit of a spot, right now. He started trying to get to grips with the changes that happened to her at the same time the others did, but isn’t quite finished yet. And, for once, that’s not entirely down to a lack of intellectual horsepower, but to the amount of change in question being nearer to the upper limit of the band. …I’ve had to omit a few more panels than I had to in the case of the Professor, in fact. >_>

More on Thurs…uh, Monday.
