Date: November 22, 2005
Summary: Steve cunningly avoids his untimely demise.
"Fin" style: Made out of acorns
Number of panels: 5
Squirrel: "Any last requests...?"
Steve: "Can I just slowly reach down here and pick up a handful of these convenient projectiles..?"
Squirrel: "I don't see why not... as long as you don't suddenly spin round and throw them in my..."
Steve: (FLING'ing the acorns at the squirrel) "Taste acorn, tree-rat!"
(Squirrel's gun goes off with a BLAM!)
Squirrel: (face SWELL!-ing and BLOAT!-ing) "My allergies!"
Squirrel's head FLOMP!-s down.
Beaver: (from the outside) "Mon dieu! Elle vole! Elle vole!"
Steve CHEW!'s on a diamond
Beaver's French isn't all that good. In the last panel, he says, "My God! She flies! She flies!" Unlike English-speaking nations, the French don't refer to flying or sailing objects as female. The correct version would be "Il vole!". (Reference)
Steve's scarf was hand knit by his grandmother.
