Title: time for pie
Date: May 25, 2007
Summary: Beaver unwittingly changes the course of history by baking a pie.
"Fin" style: A pie.
Number of panels: 8
Beaver: "Oh boy, my pie must be about done by now. I can almost taste it already!"
An allosaurus pops out of the oven.
Beaver: "Goodness me! Perhaps I'll leave it in a little longer.."
Beaver and Steve are in a room adjacent to the kitchen where Steve tools around with a robot head. A CRASH! can be heard through the door.
Beaver: "Steve, you wouldn't happen to know why there's an allosaurus in our kitchen would you?"
Steve: "No, I...oh wait, you didn't use the oven did you?"
Beaver: "Why, what have you done to it?"
Steve: "I've combined it with a time machine! By sending the cooked meals back in time they'll be ready to eat before you even put them in the oven! It will revolutionise the world of cooking forever! I'll be rich!"
Beaver: "And where does the allosaurus fit into this plan?"
Steve: "There are still a couple of kinks in the system, but everything will be fine... ..well, unless you did something silly like put a pie in there or something! Ha ha!"
Beaver: "Would that be bad?.."
Steve: "Well, if any organic material were sent that far back in time, it could completely change the course of evolution on this planet! Why do you ask?"
Steve is a giant pie, and is SKRITCHing at his crust.
Beaver: "Oh, no reason."
Steve: "Could you pass the gravy? My crust is starting to flake."
Beaver is a t-shirt and Steve is a sock.
Steve: "You might want to avoid using the washing machine too..."
- This is the second time something odd has occurred while cooking.
- On the side of the door to the kitchen opposite the calendar (seen in Comic 189), the door is labeled "Kitchen", though one would hope Beaver and Steve could figure that out.
