Title: Beaver and Steve go on holiday
Date: March 6, 2006
Summary: Beaver and Steve are about to board their flight to a lovely holiday in Australia. However, due to the fact that Steve is in charge, they go into the wrong flight.
"Fin" style: To be Contd.
Number of panels: 6
Beaver and Steve are walking carrying suitcases. Steve is holding two pieces of paper.
[At the airport...]
Beaver: "I'm so excited about our holiday to Australia!"
Steve: "I can't wait to see all the cool wildlife!"
Beaver is imagining himself holding a Koala and Steve inside a Kangaroo's pouch hoping around witha "HOPPITY HOP!" sound.
Steve is imagining himself riding a purple, three eyed, flame throwing dragon going GRAA! while carrying Beaver in its claws.
Beaver: "Oh yes- that will be nice!"
Beaver: "Right, we need to find out which gate our flight is leaving from. Can I take a look at the boarding passes please?"
Steve: (looking angrily at Beaver) "No! I am in charge of boarding passes!"
Beaver: "Well, ok then... Which gate are we leaving from?"
Steve: "The boarding pass says gate 9 3/4."
Beaver: "9 3/4? Perhaps you should let me..."
Steve: "The pass has spoken!"
They are standing at a gate. To the left there is a happy looking flight attendant. Behind him there is a sign which says "Gate 9 3/4"
Beaver: "Well, I guess there is a gate 9 3/4 after all..."
Steve: "See Beaver- when I am in charge of something I make sure it is done properly."
Beaver and Steve are walking down the corridor towards the door. The Flight attendant has looked back and small wings are now visible on his back. The rest of the sign which he was covering says "Gate 9 3/4 Flight PGN-01 to Pixie Land"
Beaver: "You know, I have a really good feeling about this holiday..."
Steve: "Now the boarding pass says 'Shut up'."
Flight Attendant: "Have a nice flight! Tee hee!"

- In Australia there are no purple dragons/monster.
- Kangaroos wouldn't let a lizard (or steve) into their pouch.
Gate 9Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¾ is a reference to the Harry Potter series, in which the Hogwarts Express leaves from King's Cross station platform 9Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¾.
