This may be the best strip of the year so far.
Love the Pharoah Bug !!!
hate to burst your bubble, but it’s just glasses bug in a hat
Hate to burst ur bubble but its pharoah bug
Hate to burst your bubble, but it’s Nerd Bug after learning identity theft.
I hate to burst YOUR BUBBLES but I think the four of us actually Like bursting bubbles
The third panel is one of the best things I’ve seen in a while.
That’s great and all, but it’d be better if the jews had actually built the pyramids.
Yeah, historicity is nice, but if you look too deep it ruins the whole thing, so I’m just going to do everyone a favor and leave them in their blissful ignorance.
It’s for the best, otherwise we’d have to explain that the Egyptians didn’t use slaves to build them, either, and then there’s not a whole lot to be funny with.
The heat makes people crazy
Long time reader, first time commenting. Love your strip, Adam!
Did you intentionally refer to another Egyptian deity in the third panel? Brilliant!
Wish I could say yes, but no.
I like your version of Exodus better. Two belly-laughs on this one, Adam. (The Boss hasn’t shown up, yet.)
Also, less dead children in this version
Definitely my new favorite. Every panel is brilliant.
Laughed out loud at every panel. Fortunately no one was around to hear me cackling like a crazy person.
Who let Anubis out? Thanks, now EVERY time I hear that damn song, THIS will be playing in my head! LOL!
It was actually an honor to work on the pyramids. No slave labor required: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egyptian_pyramid_construction_techniques
Thou shalt never stop making pure epicness out of anything!
“You got it, Mo.” One of the best punches I’ve ever read/seen. Fantastic!
Also, Pharaoh finger-gun is absolutely necessary. Brilliant as usual!
I think that’s my favorite gesture to draw.
funny, but the egyptians didnt use slave labor to build the pyramids, here’s a link proving my point. http://www.nationalgeographic.com/pyramids/pyramids.html#who
oh, not enough information for you? heres another supporting it as well.
this last one is a little windy, but it also proves egyptians built the pyramids.
well, now that that’s covered, lets get on to more entertaining subjects, eh?
You got me there. Now I feel like Calvin when he stated how bats were bugs for his science report.
“You just drew fangs on the “batman” symbol”
“Hey, Who’s giving the report, me or you Chowder heads”
Awesome within Awesome, Adam.
Well, that’s what you get for believing those stories in the Bible. XD
Ummm… Not in the Bible. Just a modern tradition. Works (extremely well) for the strip. Let it go….
Thing about that is.. Slaves where the employees of the day. You were either royalty, warrior, priest or slave.
Now a “well paid” slave just had a cushy job in a wealthy house, but he was still a slave. If it was aliens, then well they weren’t.. But they most defiantly did not “just ask nice” even though it’s much funnier this way 😛
They still had regular workers, you know.
3rd panel is epic. HiLARious, Adam!
Thanks. I had to do a Google search to see if anyone had done the “who let Anubis out?” bit before. I’m sure SOMEONE has already done it somewhere.
Today definitely ranks up there with the greats. The animation, the timing, the references, versatility, anachronism… Perfecto. And BTW all nitpickers, coming from a history major: epic comedy trumps historicity. Let it go.
I suppose I’ll be the one to mention that the story of Moses was actually written before the bible and had no mention of any one called ‘Moses’. A few hundred years before it was originally written, (the one without mention of Moses)
A volcanic eruption happened between 1500-1650BC. This changed the pH of the water as the ash and such. This caused a red algae plume to grow (colour looks like blood).
This then caused the oxygen in the water to decrease, killing fish (which can eat frog eggs) and causing the eggs to hatch to quickly develope into frogs (A survival trait means that in harsh conditions, they’ll develope more rapidly).
Increase in frogs mean less frog food, and they quickly die due to starvation. Dead frogs brings means no predators of flies. The few flies, fleas, gnats and lice then breed quickly, without the frogs to keep the population down, causing a swarm.
The flies can leave boils due to their bites.
The hail and fire are caused by the eruption of the volcano. Ash in the air causes a mixture of ash and water. The ash, very high in the air, causes the water to freeze so when it falls it is hail and not rain. It also can (and has in the past) cause lots of thunderstorms. The red lightning (red due to chemicals in the air) can quite easily cause fires and be seen as fire.
Locusts bury their eggs deep within the sand. The melted hail provide more than enough water to hatch them all.
Darkness is caused by the ash in the air as it blocks out the sun.
When food is scarce, the first born eats first. Food that is rotten by now, or poisoned by eating things covered in the fallen ash (from hail or otherwise) is eated by the child. Hence, they tended to die from sickness.
While these events would have taken more than a day, it was passed down for a couple of hundred years before it was written down, so things got changed slightly. Then years later, it appeared in the bible, with mention of a messaih named Moses.
…. I’ll go now…
panel 3 is one of the FUNNIEST THINGS EVER!!!
