:lol: Such a good lawyer there. You think it would be much better prepared with all the money they most likely pay him.

you’d think they coulda afforded to find a lawyer name Phoenix Wright. not the one from the game, just a lawyer with the same name.

Actually I'm surprised its just one lawyer, usually people not even anywhere near as rich as the Ferrets have more then one.

Oh, I'm sure that they have the entire firm on retainer.

I think the banter in the alt text is what got me for this one. Nothing like a good ol' play on words.

I didn't understand today's punchline. Can someone explain it to me?

Mr London, Esq.? Technically, isn't Esq. supposed to replace Mr? I was under the impression that having both of them was a social faux pas (although given the character I suppose this may have been intentional?)

Also, if he's supposed to be British, fun fact: Esq. is now more common in the USA than it is in Britain 8D

Oh, and I also found the alt. text to be the real diamond of this strip.

Now that's what I call some good organization of papers. (sarcasm)

I kind of think the lawyer should be talking to the head of Animal Control, not the zoo. The zoo was perfectly justified in calling them to keep an eye on things so as not to cause a scene and to step in if things went wrong. If they were "monitoring the situation" properly, then they would have seen that Miles did not attack anyone. Instead they shot the whole pack up with tranq darts. Of course we don't know if they only tried to take Miles away and the rest of the pack came to his defense and got aggressive.

You would think with a Milton paycheck he could afford a better briefcase. At least it wasn't full of FerreTone and FerretVite.

I wonder what the other ferrets are up to right now? Probably something along the lines of...
Lana: Hey, has anyone seen Keene?
Rock: Who?
Duke: *checks blackberry* Hey! New What's New Scooby Doo's on!

Post subject:  Re: Arc 49: A Holiday at the Zoo

This particular comic screams "replacement". Though it would be funny seeing Miles running the power over Keene for christmas x3

Also: Rick, i think you spelled "out" twice in the second panel.

The alt text reminds me of Soylent Green.

"It's people. Soylent Green is made out of people."

You would think they'd at least realize he's a domesticated weasel and not a black footed one.

I was joking when I mentioned they might have shot the pups, I didn't think they'd actually do it. :shock:

Post subject:  Re: Arc 49: A Holiday at the Zoo

Yes, that's admittedly going too far, but who know what's the pups capable of? One of the accounts stated the cubs would have been the ones giving all the scratches to animal control.

The last thing I need to hear is if AC would have the gall to shoot Lucretia's mother. Then again, you can't imagine if they underestimated the whole pack...or worse, overestimate them.

I'm surprised people find it unconscionable to shoot wild animals with tranquilizers. It happens in the real world. It's the best way to temporarily subdue potentially dangerous animals.

Author:  RandomGeekNamedBrent [ Fri Dec 23, 2011 5:48 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Arc 49: A Holiday at the Zoo

not to mention they do it with people too. at least on TV.

As far as they're aware, the wolves were a threat to their lives. So they stopped them without threatening theirs. A misunderstanding, yes. But hardly cruel or shocking.

Indeed the mods speak the truth.
Hardly a paticularly cruel thing to do.

Yay! Sneak Peek! Monday should be interesting. Also is the Arc over on Monday or will it go the rest of the week? Merry Christmas Everyone! I hope you all have a good day!

Not to mention its one of the non-lethal methods.

Yay! The whole Pack in one shot! People are going to want the middle as a wallpaper for sure.

I like everything about the 5th panel.

and the 6th is pretty good too.

I could see him doing that for the first couple of hits (so it will stay) then switching to his hand to finish it. And I noticed that too, I wonder why she is?

Keene screamed and the zoo people said to gag him (as in "bound and gagged") to shut him up.

Rick could probably eventually provide a version without the speech bubble for you.
