Someone’s not passing their midterms at this rate.
The villain’s name is interesting… Dr. A.N.Y.?
And Ydde being pronounced like ID, I assume. Clever, considering his interests.
I think it’s a rule where fictional doctors of mad science have to have play-on-words or occupational last names.
Greatest real life doctor last name I’ve seen was “Quackenbush”.
So anytime you were getting some serious medical work done, you could say you were visiting a complete quack.
I grew up in Brawley, California. There were two doctors there who had an office together. Drs. Yellen and Hollerahn. They actually made it to Believe it or Not along with Joe Ryba in El Centro, the world’s faster barber, shaved a man in 8.2 seconds. Jeez, I thought that was a funny sign, especially since you could see that Mr. Ryba was now almost 90 years old.
Near where I used to live, there’s a firm of estate agents called “Doolittle & Dalley” They’ve been in business for over 100 years so I guess the pun formed by the surnames of the founders is a little ironic…
Back to this episode, and I spotted the rule breaking in panel 1, and I like the name of the browser (Yippee!) and search engine (Gurgle Images) – very crafty plays on two existing search providers. Not forgetting Inkypus, who *has* to have the last word, even when hidden beneath two layers of clothing and (presumably) Quentin’s Gluteus Maximus.

Did you look closely at that cup?
In one town I lived in there was a mortuary named “Byrne and Stouthitt” – pronounced Burn and Stuffit. In Santa Ana there’s a place called “Hasty Brake and Wheel Alignment” and Jeanne and I saw the capper to all business names while on a trip to San Francisco — “Stankho and Sons Plumbing”. Could I speak to Mrs. Stankho, please?
Something a little less….embarrassing. I went to school with a dental hygienist whose name was Brooke Smiley. Love the banter coming from your hero’s butt.
Yeah, but did she have a talking butt?
Every Tuesday on our way home from shopping my mom and I pass a sign for an attorney named Scott Humble.
How about a chiropractor named Dr. Bender?
You mean this guy?
This is cute. I like the name play here.
Yes, I saw the sign and the “star” + “dollar sign (bucks)” = “starbucks.”
I like the placement of the poster behind Q in the last panel. It makes his face look like it’s glowing.
Inkypus is good as always. I still wonder how he sees though. How does he know about the “mamas?”
Oh. I have to question the placement of the three gals around the table. They seemed to have reversed position! Neat trick.
Looking again, it looks like the young women scoot their chairs around the table as well as reverse position. Maybe they like to play musical chairs? :p
We figure they have wheels on their chairs.
D’oh! And here I just thought the cup was swearing about being dragged into a library! XD
Y’know, I kept seeing the name “Ydde” in the tags, and I’m glad to finally see the rest of it! (And to have my suspicions confirmed about who it was linked to…)
I wonder if those strange vibes don’t actually come from Inkypus. If anyone’s the real creeper…
Yeah, creepiness is having a talking tail.
What I don’t get is why that one girl is looking at his butt and saying “EWWW!”
Just a general “Ewww!” not a butt specific one.
i think this page turned out okay, i sped my way thru it in an attempt to be “on time” but it was still an hour or so late. it is very odd that the girls pull switcheroos in these panels, i think they might have mystical powers; they remind me of the witches from Macbeth…
that girl at the table is wacked… in what world is he “cute” ? O.o
Who knows? Maybe for some people he has a certain demonic charm?
The best one near me is gone now, but our local dentist on mainstreet has parking in the back of the building. The sign said something like “South County Dentistry, Rear Entrance” tourists were frightened.
The one that gets me is the “Residents’ Entrance” sign on some mortuaries.
