Title: GUEST STRIP! by Ali Graham
Date: June 28, 2006
Summary: Steve creates hybrid pandas.
"Fin" style: Like a panda's face.
Number of panels: 6
Steve: "Beaver! Have you heard, there's less than 1000 pandas left in the world."
Beaver: "I thought pandas were your mortal enemy."
Steve: "... This is true, but every person needs a nemesis - imagine Superman without Lex Luther, or Rupert Murdoch without the free-thinking world."
Steve: "So I've decided to set up my own panda breeding enclosure."
Beaver: "... This is my bedroom."
Steve: "Now instead of breeding pandas with other pandas, I've decided to make a natural hybrid!"
Steve (o.s.): "I'll be able to harness the power of a creature with the vicious killing abilities of a panda, and jumping talents of a rabbit."
Car (which panda is holding): "Eeeek!"
The panda is MUNCH!'ing.
Steve: "Uhh the kiilling abilities of a panda and the endearing cuteness of a kitten?"
- The pandas aren't really "natural" hybrids at all.
