Title: 20,000 leeks under the sea - part 1
Date: May 5, 2006
Summary: Even stranded at sea, democracy strikes...
Number of panels: 7
Beaver, Steve and Timmy are floating on a lifeboat in the middle of the ocean.
Beaver: (PANIC!-ing) "I can't take it! We've been drifting out here for weeks! if we don't get food soon we are all going to die!"
Steve: "In that case Beaver, I'm afraid there's only one thing for it..."
Steve: "... one of us is going to have to be... brunch!"
Timmy: "Oh! Oh! Pick me! Pick me!"
Steve: "Obviously the only fair way to choose is by secret ballot."
Beaver: "But if the Turnip wants to be eaten..."
Steve: "Oh sorry Beaver, I didn't realize that you hated democracy..."
Timmy: "I-I'm a rich source of vitamin C..."
Steve pulls papers and pens from nowhere and begins to hand them out.
Beaver: "Sigh... okay... wait - you had ballot papers with you all along?"
Steve: "Democracy can strike at any time."
[Meanwhile, 20,000 leagues below...]
The eye of a mysterious gigantic sea creature is shown.
[To be contd.]
- Beavers, lizards, and turnips can grow facial stubble.
- Steve carries ballot papers and pencils with him all the time.
- Both this arc and the You can't Hanzel the truth! arc suggest that Steve has fantasies about eating Beaver.
- This episode's setting is fairly similar to that of Comic 39. Both Beaver and Steve also had a stubble back then.
