Title: ad hic
Date: December 5, 2006
Summary: Steve develops a formula against hiccups
"Fin" style: Sitting Scorpion.
Number of panels: 12
Steve: "Hic! Hic! Hic! Hic! Hic! Hic!"
Beaver: "Tee Hee! Looks like someone has a case of the hiccoughs!"
Beaver: "Here - drink out of the wrong side of this glass. That will get rid of them."
Steve: "Superstitious nonsense! Hic! I'll cure them the scientific way Hic!: With science! Hic!
Steve: At last! Hic! The formula is complete!
Steve: But there's only Hic! one way to find out if it works... Hic!
Steve GLUK GLUK GLUKs the formula.
Steve falls into a blue and purple spiral, out of which smiling yellow teacups and teapots emerge.
Steve: "What happened ..."
Steve: "My hiccoughs... They're gone!"
Steve: "It works! This miracle cure will cahnge the world forever! And best of all it has absolutely no side-effects!"
Beaver: "But Steve, you've been unconscious for three days..."
Steve: "A minor detail..."
Steve: "... and you've grown some sort of grotesque exoskeleton ...."
Beaver: "Hmm... Maybe the formula could use a little work..."
Steve SITs down on the sofa next to Beaver, deforming the sofa and pushing Beaver aside.
Beaver: "I think we might need a bigger sofa."
