If, like Mira, you have wondered about Ethel's whereabouts - well, she's now in small US town called Anvil Flats!

Ethel also seems to feel very strongly about eggs.
I wonder why...? ;-)

And yep, Karin with an "i" is indeed a clone of Karen with an "e"...

I wonder if my clone is better at drawing Anvil Flats than me lol

0_o



Also it would surprise me not at all if Ethel only broke out her totally functional English when Donna wasn’t around

I already had some practice e.g. by redrawing Prof's stuff and Jay's stuff.
(Oh, and I guess Mr. Alexander's humble sinister abode counts too!)

Also, LOL at the thought of Ethel totally trolling Donna with her "no speak the English" stick! ;-D

Rule #1: Don't mess the eggs up while Ethel's around...

Rule #2: Don't question where Ethel has those eggs from...

Naughty-naughty Ethel, you wear no bra below your apron!
But speaking off eggs... Medusa once went into a turkish restaurant with me and I persuaded her to order a meal with eggs, called Koç Yumurtaşı. Hahaha, she wasn'rt very excited about it, spank me.

Oh, soon Ethel will change into significantly more... sensible clothes.

And upon looking up this Koç Yumurtaşı...
Well... Yeah...
It seems Turkish has the same double meaning for "egg" as German...

What is the proper etiquette for telling someone they have a clone running around?

"Hey, didn't you always say that you wish you had a twin sibling?"
"Uhm... no?"

Ok so she's not really wearing a bra, isn't it? I mean the only why you draw her putting 1 on is because you don't want any nudity in your webcomic, am I right?

@ lirv:

I took my cue from what happened to the Maercs in your comic, and purged them all except for one!
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
You're wondering why there were multiple postings of the same comment is because there was something wrong with the internet during that time

@guest: It was funny, no worries

@ Guest:
I second lirv, no worries!
(In fact, I think something like this has also happened to myself once or twice.)

@ Guest:

Well, on this page I followed lirv's design for her outfit, where she indeed doesn't seem to wear a bra under her apron. (Well visible here: Neither shoulder straps nor back straps!)

Which... admittedly caused a continuity hiccup to slip in, since we'll see in some of the following pages that she has a bra under her leather jacket...

Yes, the art of making an egg... into charcoal. Something that will keep you warm, but leave your stomach growling.

Bad cooking (not just of eggs) will be a recurring theme in this chapter...

The resulting activated charcoal could do to ease indigestion
