Title: Rupert hits the town - part 4
Date: March 25, 2005
Summary: Rupert the cockroach grows to gigantic proportions and starts destroying the city.
Number of panels: 4
Beaver and Steve watch Rupert T. Roach G-R-O-W! enormously.
Rupert: "What a disconcerting sensation..."
Rupert looks down on Beaver and Steve in triumph.
Rupert: "Ha-Ha! And so, you diminitive dimwits, it would seem the tables have been turned! The shoe, as they say, is upon the proverbial 'other foot'!"
Steve: "I think he wants to be our friend..."
Beaver grabs Steve's arm and drags him away as a giant leg of Rupert WHACHUNK!'s into the floor next to them.
Outside: Beaver and Steve observe Rupert BREAKK!ing a building and destroying the city.
Beaver: "Oh no! He's destroying the city! We've got to do something!"
Steve: "Consider the benefits of a rural lifestyle?"
Rupert: "Take that oh cankerous construct of my oppressors"
Innocent bystander: "Aaah! A giant cockroach with a persecution complex... My greatest fear!"
This is possibly a reference to Godzilla or some Godzilla-like concept.
