I want to read that book.
Unfortunately, you need to be Mad first for most of it to make sense.
Probably less compelling a book than you’d think. It’s a St. Charlie guy so I’m guessing the first gag is breeding mantis-men and the next thousand are just having them do various sorts of pinching.
I assume that Dr Pinchy is a half-lobster beast-person.
I would assume that she is actually a mantis.
A Mad with one hand replaced by a mechanical lobster claw capable of cutting through steel. Beast-people hybrids and uplifted animals don’t do proper Mad Science. (Are there Mad uplifted animals? I don’t think we’ve met one yet: the Hungry Tiger uses madtech but doesn’t built it himself.)
portal 2 refence? nice
“Welcome to St. Charlie’s. You’ll know when the test starts!”
Aha! They can beat him at his own game by killing each other first.
Or they can beat him by plotting against him when he’s standing just over there and can hear every word. This compels him to waste time killing Dr. Walske when he’d like to have spent that time killing everyone.
Eventually this leads to them beating him.
So have any of the mantis-men been around to see the guys at Skin Horse lately? Seems like they might have some kind of beef about being created…
Seems like something Our Heroes would have to deal with. Although St. Charlie probably still employs most of them as security people (recent events with rogue AIs notwithstanding).
Is Pinchy related to Hitty? not sure I want to meet uncle Smashy
If Hitty joined with Pinchy instead of Moustachio, they’d be PinchyHitty!
I bet she’d make a sweet pinch hitter! :B
Is the oldest trick in the world related to the oldest profession?
What interests me is the question of what you would mutate the mantismen into that would be of more value then just normal mantismen would be? o_O
Giant fire-breathing ur-mantismen of DOOM?
(Man, Mozilla’s word-squiggler doesn’t think “ur-mantismen” is a word. I need a better word-squiggler.)
This^. All of this.^ 😀
“You guys?” The DofI wasn’t exactly a model of sane scientific studies, Marcie.
I think Chris and Marcie squarely fall into the camp that Dr Lee does, in that while their work appears to be pretty much the same as that of Mad Scientists, they don’t identify themselves as such. And to be honest, all three do appear pretty sane and stable.
Compare them to Helen, Tigerlily and the St Charlie crowd… although it has to be admitted that Helen does a pretty good cover job of hiding Real Helen for most of Narbonic, as does Mad Dave after things settle down. But those guys are major league
Also… Marcie may not be referring to the mantis men, but to how bloody annoying the St Charlie guys are (and this one is possibly THE most annoying one of all!).
He’s just derailed her exposition!
