Re: 2035: "Dark Matter Candidates"

Re: 1826: "Birdwatching"

Yeah, crazy size glitch aside, I don't really get the "joke" here. The vacuum cleaner is so absurd that it crosses the line between "joke" and "what". Like if he just pulled out a lasso I'd at least get it but the vacuum just... eh... The second guy in the strip, who co...
