Title: lobstu'thu petuniaghn
Date: April 20, 2007
Summary: A giant lobster wins first prize at a gardening contest.
"Fin" style: On flowers.
Number of panels: 8
Mayor: "...and so it gives me great pleasure to present you the prize for 'New Malden's Prettiest Garden'!"
Beaver: "Thank you Your Mayorness! This is the proudest moment of my life!"
Elderly woman: "Ooh, these rhododendrons are just sublime!"
Mayor: "And might I just say how wonderful it is to know that even here in the city one can find such a haven of tranquility as this..."
Steve and Lobstu'thu CRASH! through the wall, locked in combat.
Steve: "You're going back to whatever briney hell you spawned from, Lobstu'thu!"
Mayor: "My word!"
Steve has a giant version of a tool commonly used to crack lobster exoskeletons prior to consuming the tasty flesh inside.
Lobstu'thu RIP!s and REND!s the flowers underneath as he battles Steve.
Steve: "I'll turn you into crab sticks!"
Beaver: "Oh no! My azaleias!"
Azalea: "Ak! My xylem!"
Steve has the tool around Lobstu'thu's neck, causing a CRACK.
Beaver: "Steve! You know you're not allowed to play or battle elder gods in my garden!"
Beaver: "No buts Steve! Just look what you've done to my chrysanthemums!"
Chrysanthemum: "Choke!...So cold..."
Steve: "I..I was just..."
Beaver: "I'm sorry Steve, but you've forced me to do this..."
Steve: "No! Not that!.."
Beaver looms over Steve, chiding him.
Beaver: "I'm...VERY DISAPPOINTED in you Steve..."
Steve: "Oh the unimaginable shame!"
Beaver dusts off his hands with a PAF while Steve SOB!s.
Beaver: "Well, I think you've learned your lesson. Now, let's hope the judges are understanding..."
Lobstu'thu is holding a pot of flowers as the Mayor hands him the prize.
Mayor: "Why, I've never seen such fine petunias! The prize is yours!"
Lobstu'thu: "I guess I just have green chela"
Beaver: "Gadzooks! Those petunias are incredible!"
