Title: bread for success - part 2
Date: March 2, 2007
Summary: Beaver and Steve encounter a scarecrow without a brain.
Number of panels: 8
A Toaster Bee flies nearby Beaver, who watches it.
Beaver: "Well who could have guessed - our toaster has been a portal to another dimension all along! Just think of the new worlds we can explore, the scientific discoveries we can make, the benefits to mankind we..."
Steve spots the Toaster Creature further along the trail. Steve has anger lines emitting from his head, the Toaster Creature alert lines.
Steve: "Hey! There's the guy who stole our bread!"
Steve: "He's headed for that Emerald Toaster. We've got to catch him!"
There is a fork in the road, with a scarecrow stuck into the dirt between the paths via a pole. There's a fork stuck into the dirt right where the path splits.
Beaver holds his finger up in the 'Well...' fashion.
Beaver: "You know Steve, we do have more bread at home..."
Steve: "A fork in the road! But which way leads to the Emerald City?"
Beaver: "We could buy a whole loaf if you like..."
The scarecrow wiggles to life, POPing the pole out of the dirt. Beaver has surprise marks emitting from his head, and both Beaver and Steve lean back from being startled.
Scarecrow: Oh! Did I hear you say you were headed for the Emerald Toaster? I've always wanted to go there so I can finally get myself a brain! Do you think I could come with you? Why we'll have such adventures together! This reminds me of a song I know..."
Steve conjures up a jar containing a brain inside it, holding it towards the Scarecrow.
Steve: "Actually I have a brain right here."
The Scarecrow looks slightly disappointed.
Scarecrow: "I... oh."
The Scarecrow waves with his left arm, his right arm holding the jar. Beaver and Steve took the left path (Which from our view is the path further back). Beaver is frowning slightly, and Steve shuts his eyes in a smirking fashion.
Scarecrow: "Well, um, good luck..."
Steve: "And to think you tried to tell me not to carry organs around..."
The Scarecrow, still frowning, looks at the jar.
The Scarecrow looks behind him in a stealthy fashion.
The Scarecrow CHOMF!s the brain, dripping with the preservative fluids that the jar contained it in. He has satisfaction marks emanating from his face.
