Well, THIS is a twist.
He is holding the ferrets’ map, right?
which is probably scribbled on and unreadable.
Or it’s just a fake, or something… though, i feel a But coming along within the next comic. Hehe… someone is in for a suprise.
Well, there are still plenty of banks using them… Still, I suspect that the ferrets might be willing to trade a treasure map for pneumatic tubes anyway.
My local big-box store (no, it’s not a Wallmart) uses to transport checks.
And the film Elf shows the Empire State building still uses them.
I think what Thomas means is that nobody needs new pneumatic tubes installed
“Sorry Mr. Burglar but your map is in a different castle.”
WHAT!? Then what’s this big, red “X” here for? That says, “this way to money”?
“Oh, sorry, that’s what Daisy calls her laundry bag that she got all her money in. She calls it money.”
(That’s what would happen if Mr. Burglar guy here happened to waltz into Daisy’s chambers of the Milton castle. What? We all know she lives there now; she spent all the prize money she won on dog biscuits.)
I thought she called it “Hi, I’m Daisy!”
In hindsight, that’s what she calls her dog biscuits, too.
Okay I remember someone saying that the map would be on a table in a well lit room.
Does that room look well lit to you?
I don’t assume you put your lights out for the night?
Having a well lit room when everyone is asleep is such a horrible waste of energy, and a good way to raise your electric bill.
Did I mention it’s night in the last panel?
Yes, well that was the joke, but you took it too literally to be funny. and well, I’m not very good with jokes so no one should have laughed at that stupidity because the stupidity of that joke was so bad that any other comedian would have been ‘boo’ed off the stage for it.
And yet… You can’t read a map with shades in a poorly lit room.
Did I forget to mention that my last comment was a joke.
I like how the box is marked “SECRET MAPS.” x3
There is no way this could be a ruse. *laughs*
Mind is blown! Things HAVE to go wrong. He said the cursed line!
You never know. Millionaire ferrets could bring the pnuematic tube back in style. Stocks on pneumatic will raise and other money stuff i don’t understand. By the end of it, the ferrets will have more money than they could have thought possible (thats if they even cared for the money in the first place).
And also….. um what villian with a history of larceny whistles during a heist?
… a really good one?
One whose ski mask matches his moustache
Oh wait, that wasn’t whistling, that was all-out singing
SPY SAPPIN MAH TREASURE MAP!
TREASURE MAP DOWN?
That dosen’t even make any sense if I said that.
NEED A TREASURE MAP OVER HERE!
Erecting a map!
Famous last words right thar.
If you wonder what kind of villan whistles during a heist you have never delt with a mortgage broker.
Our hospital uses pneumatic tubes to send blood and urine specimens from the ER. Most do.
Too Much Information!
How… How could this be?
He said those cursed words, HIGHLIGHTED EVEN!
It will probobly come in effect in the next strip…
Murphy is waiting. Always waiting for someone to say them.
I know the ferrets can be careless at times, but that’s too easy. There’s gotta be a catch somewhere.
Or a huge plot hole. This is just way to even to be fair
Or a huge covered hole behind him, that’s actually part of an enormous underground pneumatic tube system hidden beneath the mansion/castle. Watch as he wonders why the big red “X” is right where he’s standing xD
What, he actually found it? How anticlimatic…
You just wanted to see what a literal ballroom looked like, didn’t you?
I’m a carpet-shark at heart x3;
I foresee him turning around to see about 50 OTHER burglars wanting to steal the map.
That easy? huh….. XD
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
Secret maps don’t always lead to money. Just something that the mapmaker wanted to keep secret.
The Late Mr. Milton’s stash of erotic literature?
I KNEW he was a dirty old dog! Man, dirty old man…
Maybe the old guy just collected secret maps.
that… would be… HILARIOUS XD.
Hey! The larceny gloves are back!
He never really was on your side.
That Pneumatic Tube Engineer is a SPAH!
Sigh… will the bad guys never learn? Will Rick have to use every cliched- (what keyboard shortcut do you use to make the accent?) line-that-you’re-never-supposed-to-say just to teach them a lesson?
On windows, and a keyboard with a number pad, ALT+130. (The other vowels are in the wikipedia article for the acute accent)
If you don’t have an option key (see Argent Stonecutter’s post below at 3:05 PM), Windows, nor a number pad, copy and paste the letter from somewhere else (say Word’s spell check, or googling for an accented e or something)
Option is the key with the “⌥” symbol on it.
Oh, you can also use compose-’-e if your keyboard has a compose key. If you don’t have a compose key modify xorg.conf to have something like ‘Option “XkbOptions” “compose:rwin”‘ in the InputDevice section (that will make the right “⌘” key “compose”).
I have a kéyboûrd with a num pad, I’m using WIndows for some reason (I also have Linux installed) and I have an Alt key.
Neither on my laptop’s keyboard, nor my Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000 keyboard, do I see an “option” key. And at Argent, I thought xorg.conf was just in Linux? I wasn’t even aware Windows used it too. Also, are you using a Mac? ‘Cuz that supposed “Windows” symbol looks suspiciously like the symbols I’ve seen on Macs…
Aww, you broke the code.
Why when I look at your message am I reminded of cookies?
Option-E : cliché
(if your keyboard doesn’t have an “option” key, I’m sorry)
NOTHING could go wrong with an epic mustache like he’s got!!!
He did it…HE SAID THE LINE
and he dun-dun-DUNNNNNNNNNNN …..whistled!!!!
Question: who is the “he” that bought out the pneumatic tube company?
Considering the “blank check” mentioned in the previous strip, my guess is Pit.
Soooo basically, I getting that…
-The Pneumatic Tubes WEREN’T part of the scheme to get into the house, they were just a method of generating funds for their treasure hunt.
-Annnd even though he would have been allowed in (to install Pneumatic tubes), he still “got out his larceny gloves” …and broke in.
That actually DOES make sense.
yes, take suspicion off the pneumatic tube installer. >.>
anyone else Really want to see this map lead them on a wild goose chase?
Nah, that’s too clichéd. I think Rick should come up with something original to happen to the villians (or villian – he’s the one breaking in). Like, say for example, Pete appearing to HIM and making him fall into the giant pneumatic tube I mentioned earlier.
I think Rick ruled out Pete showing up for this one.
Totally! That would be awesome and soo stupid of them.
I HATE THOSE TWO!
I dunno… I have problems imagining ol’ Milton putting away a big pile o’money to be found via a map. Especially after covering any possible legal gizmo in favor of his beloved ferrets…
Oh, Rick, what a surprise you must be having in store!
These two are so stupid. Taking money from totally awesome ferrets.
Cave furetos tabula ferentes.
Just ‘cuz I’m too lazy to go to Google Translate…
what does that mean?
That was kind of sudden actually. :3
He said it…
He just HAAAD to say it… -_-
