She does not look amused by the whole dragon thing.
Are dragons not funky?
Evidently “The Funky Dragon” is some kind of kids organization in Wales.

Bravo, sir. Well played.
Of course he does. Part of the job of being a butler to a Mad Scientist is to keep them on task and focused, instead of allowing them to be distracted by the three-legged hyena cicadas.
Three-legged hyena cicadas? Are those cicadas with three legs that behave like hyenas, or cicadas that behave like three-legged hyenas, or cicada-hyena hybrids with only four legs, or…
Ask Dave Davenport.
Tigerlily seems to be carrying the kind of copper ball on a stick that you use to draw sparks from a Van de Graaff generator. Which explains the ‘ZAP’ in last Saturday’s comic. Science!
So that *is* Manifesta now…
Did she lose her human mind in the process? She’s certainly not acting like someone who is _aware_ they’ve undergone a sudden massive change in employment and dating options.
I thought she’s just pissed because she wants it fixed and her forms completed.
This is why I keep him around.
Always good to have someone to keep on eye on the trees while you look for the forest.
She’s got a dragon by the tail, we all can see!
A former funky contest selectee.
Well, it’s a souped-up sweet irradiator fail.
Looks like she’s got a dragon by the tail.
Well, she thought the contest winner, she was here on the roof.
The end was here at hand with living proof.
But all the woman wanted was the temporal trail,
And it looks like she’s got a dragon by the tail.
Now Manifesta’s changed and gone to worst,
The cryptozoologists are in first.
And Tigerlily Jones has trouble on a massive scale,
‘Cause it looks like she’s got a dragon by the tail.

So, apparently China has a former army colonel who later came out as a transwoman. Anyone else seeing a possible trajectory for Tip?
I dunno… Tip seems pretty happy with himself being just who he is.
Yeah, being bisexual and a crossdresser isn’t the same as wanting gender reassignment.
No, it isn’t, but since Tip in the Oz books started out as a boy and ended up turning out to be a girl, and since Tip’s sexuality seems to have either changed or turned out to be different than he thought at the outset (he was surprised to realize he was interested in Artie), I’m not assuming Tip’s gender is what he believes it to be at the outset. If, at the end of the story, he’s still identifying as male, I’ll figure I was wrong.
I’m not sure Tip has the leadership skills to be a colonel, anyway.
The thing that strikes me about today’s comic is how silly Mr Berk’s first statement would be if that actually was a giant robot. It wouldn’t vanish merely because he didn’t believe it should be there.
In fairness, he didn’t say that it shouldn’t be there. Rather he said that they hadn’t been informed that Tiger Lily Jones had the ability to make them. Quite a different thing. Particularly when you keep in mind that there was an unstated invitation to Miss Jones to go ahead and provide some narrative as to how she got were it to turn out that she hadn’t been the one to build it. @_@
It seemed to me more like an accusation of some sort. If she had just created a huge robot, there doesn’t seem to be any reason why she can or should comment on any inaccurate/outdated rumours he had heard.
There would still be the best reason of all to comment – It would give her a chance to gloat and to explain How She Showed Them All. As it is, he did get useful information from her by talking like that and also a chance to put in his master’s claim toward being a winner, so silly or not I would say that the statement proved a worthwhile one to make whether or not it was silly. ^_^
