oh man, the last line totally reminded me of this guy: http://www.infocraving.com.

it is so absolutely crucial to always learn something every day. parson has been learning several things a day now for some time.

    your fight for awareness was a misfire based on your perceived fog of war because parson mentions a short bus.

    a quick look on google highlights short bus is a movie, a band, songs. and also images of short buses show up. YOU were the one who said it was derogatory to differently abled people. you should check your own prejudices at the door before attacking. being offended by a prejudice is often as prejudiced as making the comment.

    I don't know about the band and songs. But the shortbus salon where the movie characters meet is inspired by the yellow short bus for "challenged" students, the connection is quite clear.

    only if your american apparantly. i've never seen this movie. until now the shortbus thing was an innocent description. as much as manpower the temporary was a gay joke to me.

    you guys have manpower temp agency we have manpower, male strip revue. so once again telling off the GLOBAL community for a line in robs comic, has backfired. the bigotry has spread further off shore. personally if he was offened by that line he's too sensitive. parson never says anything about the handicapped. he says yellow like a banana, no like a bus, a short bus. this is exactly like a short bus. it's a drunk chain of thought. but i hardly see how someone could possibly misconstrue that as slandering anyone. not even specifically. the whole update is highlighting what an idiot alchohol can make of you pretty succintly.

    I'm not American, I'm Portuguese. I've seen the movie** though (don't recommend it). The first time I've seen a manpower agency was after the strip, and in Paris! There was one of those near the hotel.

    ** and yes, as DevilDan says, the movie is not what Parson is talking about. It's one of those things I'd like to unsee.

    The movie Short Bus is very likely not what Parson was referring to.

    That is all.

    "Racism was not a problem on the Discworld, because — what with trolls and dwarfs and so on — speciesism was more interesting. Black and white lived in perfect harmony and ganged up on green." Terry Pratchett, Witches Abroad

    That's not to say I didn't Google it, but I do own the book, too. The whole series is awesome and win, whether as light-hearted fantasy or the most biting of satire.

    This is absolutely the single most frustrating thing about having guest artists. I noticed this detail when I got the art. It is wrong; Parson and Banana fell on the inner side of the wall and did not leave the city. There was not time to have Eugene correct it. I knew someone was going to fixate on it, too.


    Thanks for then info.

    So... I guess that it is pretty-well settled then that Parson is (a) a garrison unit, (b) totally lacking in cross-hex-boundary move, and (c) not going on any trips anytime soon.

    ... (d) Parson is classified as a "heavy" unit". In every sense of the word. :D


    Well, he got on the dwagon, and stayed in the saddle as it fell. Heavy units aren't supposed to be able to mount at all, from what Sizemore said. Parson may be too heavy for Banana, but maybe he could ride out on a sourmander.

    From Update 9: "And we're not even sure you've got move, right? You'd need to be promoted from garrison unit... No, I think for the time being, I'd like to keep you right here in the capital where I can mentor you."

    This could be an Order to stay in the city. Or Parson could indeed be a garrison unit, and need a promotion to be able to move. Either way, Parson would need to talk to Stanley before he can leave.

    Dirocyn, Parson's attempted flight all took place within the city.
