Episode 482

Read the comic here.

Okay, for those who need some help with the pop culture, here you go:

Laurence Fishburne played Morpheus in the Matrix Movies, but back in 1986 he was on a Children's show called "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" where he played the part of Cowboy Curtis. To say that these are vastly different roles is a bit of an understatement.

This was mentioned in-strip back in Episode 259, but newer readers might find this info useful.

Also: A wink and a nod to TK1420 who spotted the possibility of Cowboy Curtis yesterday.

It's not too obvious but that's a fright knight's torso he's got on there:

So Donut isn't the only one who's eaten some of the space-time chili.

I can see Monday is going to be pretty interesting. I can hardly wait to see what adventures await on the new set Chris previewed not long ago.

You misspelled 'Curtis' in the strip. O.o

SUPERULTRADOUBLEMEGAGASP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought he being Morpheus was too predictable, but man that was unexpected!!!

Holy crap in a hat -- and a COWBOY hat at that!!!!

Yep, that one caught me completely by surprise (but apparently not TK -- he's quite perceptive for a Stormtrooper). I am quite thankful my boss had stepped out of the office and therefore didn't hear my gasp of amazement... which was quickly followed by the hysterical laughter... :)

Better keep Neo clear of that chili... knowing our luck he'd come back as Chevalier Danceny... or maybe even his character from the Rob Lowe movie "Youngblood..." and goodness knows we wouldn't want that to happen.

Best plot twist so far.

Heh. I'm still kinda catching up cause I stopped reading in Febuary and just blew through the remaining strips in half an hour.

The Lolrus said...

Also, your comics are getting confusing.

Nick said...

The lolrus died go away :(

Why'd you change the logo?

Maarten said...

Haha.
I wasn't expecting that.

And something off topic, I am receiving my very first bricklink order next week!
