Southern Discomfort – Chapter 8, Act 1, Strip 9

Well, as implausible as it was that Snuka would have been unaware of the horrible, nigh-unspeakable consequences that can come from sporting frosted tips, I had to keep up the charade – and have those consequences pointed out to him in a suitably drastic manner. Mopey and Biff rise to the occasion, and then we have a little cameo by a well-known, even somewhat notorious, sporter of frosted tips. Just to stake out how deep you can end up falling when you take such risky decision concerning your appearance.

And believe me, Flavortown is not a place you want to spend the rest of your life in. It’s nice enough at first, but once you get used to it, it gets bland…and then you’ll spend the rest of your life craving more and more spice.

Aside from giving Snuka the little shock he, oh so obviously, required, this strip also gave me the opportunity to reintroduce Gregory – in a suitable understated manner. Understatement supplied by him, in large part, but considerably augmented by the presence of Guy Fieri earlier on in the strip. It’s all about contrast, and there aren’t a lot of people who would not come over as understated next to that guy, Guy.

OK, guys, that’s it for today, more on Monday.
