Episode 712

Read the comic here.

Observant readers will note that this puts all our hero groups into "Plot Device Drive" at the same time.

That can't be good...

Wait so the only people left in the strip at the moment are the minor characters/ red herrings?

Hmm... if all the major characters have gone into plot device drive to get to wherever the plot requires them, leaving only minor characters and herrings behind... does that mean that, for this moment, the plot is suspended and therefore the plot device drive is destined to fail? If everyone is in plot device drive, then no one is currently advancing the plot, which means a herring can pull them back off course...

Dustin said...

I understand taylis's point of view, but what if the plot device drive was reprogrammed by the young Donut, who is secretly a herring in disguise?

Dustin: How do you know it isn't Old Donut that is the Red Herring?

or maybe donut DID die and the new donut and robot donut are BOTH red herrings
vw: morse, like the code

Gahhh it's taking sooo long. I want to see what happens next!

What is taking so long... I am following Chris's anti-yellow-box instructions, (ignoring them) so it can't be like he's in a coma or something... Mebby the plot device got him too, just waiting for some random person to pull it out to some random location at some random time (I have charted the probability of different times+ locations and the most likely is at 3:00 AM [EST] on July 23, 2009 in Phoenix, AZ.)

@taylis:
If you're right, then that would explain the distinct lack of any update for some time...
Could this be just a clever way to end the story... forever?

@all:

Sorry guys - real life's gotten in the way. Hope to have a strip up on Monday.

David said...

but if scotch is still a frog, then agent 13 is a herring?
