Now we're bringing political jokes into the mix. This might be my favorite strip of arc.

In reality: Marvin is just being savvy enough to know that dying in this arc after Joey automatically makes him more popular, so he had to side with the winning majority.

Well, sucks to be Joey here.
Loved the title, by the way, managed to bring more laughs.

With regards the title, I now have the song from 'The Lion King' stuck in my head - with the altered lyric...

Take the vote on the butcher's quarry,
separating the targets still more.
You should know these guy's'll be sorry
they made the guy who serves food sore.

If he's the killer it could now be simple
for him to deal with all the rest.
A good dose of poison tea should be ample
to deal with this little Raven's nest.

And Marvins' desdly Doctor changes his vote
and stands with other innocent killers.
Who will survive to catch the back boat
in this most superlative of thrillers?

Seven Furry Indians, casting ballot paper
without knowing which one's the traitor

I'm not so sure Marvin would be doing that intentionally, but it fits the book even. Those that lived longer were heard from more, and the reader gets more depth of their character conveyed to them.
I can't tell how much of that is Joey in character, and how much is Joey out of it being angry that they took a different path than the previous plot. At least the order of deaths remains the same, though the method (tba) may differ from the original. I'm having fun reading this (as usual), and watching it vary, even around partially fixed events.

"Democracy is never, ever wrong"
Best joke of the year, so far

Also, first time I see Joey really angry. Last time I saw him gritting his teeth was while talking about George Lucas.

She was the second to die. An 'OD' of sleeping pills.

I've never been a big believer of offscreen deaths. I wouldn't be surprized if the "twist" everyone's waiting for is she was (how can I put this politely?) misdiagnosed

Please pardon the lame joke... So, if Squeak was playing Mrs. Rogers would that mean Joey is playing "Mr. Rogers"?

Not such a beautiful day in the neighborhood, is it, Joey?

The suspects on each other are growing up, so, how can there be a majority in this voting? How useless... The only problem of Joey is to be the butler here, and that silly cliché says that the butler is always guilty of murders... How could he kill also his wife? :| That's a position of convenience for you, Marvin, what kind of opportunist... :P
Yes, Joey, they all definitely suck, but also the democracy sucks, when it's against you.

PS: just noticed the slightly different brown color of Fido's paper bag.

Hey uhh "Sid", just cover yourself in those red and white mushrooms in the first panel and you'll be back out of their stomachs as quickly as you get in them!

And yeah, in these worlds, Democracy works best when you have an advantage ("you"meaning... whi think YOU understand haha), at least that's been my experience...

What if the Epilogue has Sgt. Ralph and Kevin playing the cops? That would be pretty awesome.


Poor Joey, the whole world against him and hos darling Squeak killed. I like his face though, even if it is partially covered.
