Title: the tooth of the matter - part 3
Date: August 3, 2007
Summary: Steve gets a haunted filling, and we learn about the religious beliefs of a block of cheese.
Number of panels: 7
The Dentist Ghosts have put their head back on, and Steve looks visibly shaken.
Dentist: All finished! See you again soon!
Beaver: There Steve, that wasn't so bad was it?
Beaver: How's the tooth?
Steve holds his cheek, looking cross.
Steve: He gave me a filling.
Beaver: Well that's good! Now it won't hurt when you eat!
Steve opens his mouth, to show the Filling Ghosts, who have an EERIE GLOW.
Steve: The filling is haunted
Beaver: Hmm... maybe we should have gone private?
Filling Ghost #2: Wooooooooo
Filling Ghost #1: Ghooooosts!
Beaver and Steve are eating some cheese. Steve still looks cross as he CHOMs on his.
Beaver: How are you enjoying your dinner Steve?
Steve: Everything tastes of ghosts.
Beaver: Oh, that's good! Now, eat your cheese.
INSIDE STEVE'S MOUTH...
View from inside Steve's mouth, you can see his teeth and the smiling block of Cheese as he puts it in.
Cheese: At last! The time of eating is upon me!
Cheese: As foretold in the scriptures of gouda, with the stroke of the teeh of judgement my soul can finally escape this cheesey form and fly free, across the cosmos!
Steve's teeth CHOM! down on the Cheese, releasing its angel-winged-and-haloed soul to ASCEND!
Cheese: It's true! I'm free!
Cheese: Now at last I can ascend to the great dairy section in the sky, and join all my lost brothers and sisters in the eternal fondue! Joy!
Filling Ghost #1: Oh boy, ghost cheese, my favorite!
Cheese: What? No!
Filling Ghost #2: I brought ghost crackers.
