Title: Beaver and Steve go on holiday - part 8
Date: April 7, 2006
Summary: Things don't go as planned in the museum
Number of panels: 6
Bever: Oh wow, this museum is so interesting!
Steve: Yes this is the most interesting door and hammer I have ever seen.
I.E: Super boring
Pixie: Tee Hee! But these are no ordinary door and hammer! They are both extremely magical! Would you like to hear their stroy?
Steve: Absolutely not....[cut off]
Beaver: Oh! Yes please!
In speech bubble (with illustrations.)
Pixie: Tee Hee! Well it all began 1000 years ago: The mean old Gremlin King unhappy with his kingdoms stink production, built this magical doorway between Gremlinopolis and Pixies Land... Tee Hee!
Gremlin King: More Stink!
Pixie Slave: Yuck! Tee Hee
Pixie: The naughty gremlins invaded! They captured all the pixies and took them to Gremlinopolis to work in the stink mines. Pee-oo! This wasn't much fun! So the king of the pixies used all of his remaining pixie power to create two magical artifacts: the 'Pretty Flower Hamer' to drive the gremlins out of Pixies Land, and the 'Lovely Lock' to seal the doorway forver!
Pixies King: Tee Hee!
Beaver: So the door can never be opened again?
Pixie: Well in theory the lock could be smashed with the hammer, and without any remaining pixies power it could never be re-sealed... Now i think about it, it's probably not really a good idea to keep them in the same room..Tee Hee! But them i'm sure no one would...
Beaver: I'm very disappointed in you Steve...
Gremlin King: Hullo
Beaver: I thought we'd agreed: No more running gags.
Beaver: We should probably go...
Steve: But we havn't even been to the gift shop!
Gremlin King (to pixie): So tell me... ... Have you ever considered a career in stink extraction?
- The lovely lock can be smashed with the pretty flower hammer.
- Pixies underestimate Steve
- Gremlins are quite polite invaders
- Gremlins produce stink as a natural resource
In comic 159 Steve also ends up opening a door and allowing evil creatures into the world... a re-occuring theme methinks
