Replies from the Ketchup Blitz. And I tried to keep the snips and replies short, but sorry if I should have spoilerized more...
I was just waiting for this. WP. (Also: this reminds me, I propose you be given the title of Witmaster. Although I don't have exact numbers, I'd swear you have more wikiquotes than anyone else, and most of those were humor.)
Well, thank you for your title suggestion, and I'm glad that someone appreciates my sense of humor (so with my wife, that makes a total of... one person). But frankly, I'd feel a little presumptious assuming such a title. I mean there are so many Waiters in this thread with tremendous wit, wisdom, and insight, not to mention a sense of humor.
Plus, as far as my replies all being humor, I'd postulate that ALL the replies in this thread are humorous at some level. Even the ones that are stone-faced "serious" analysis are humorous to me, simply because they're occuring in a long drawn-out discussion over a web comic, so I find that the analysis gets coated with a certain layer of absurdity, no matter how intellectually stimulating and insightful the content of the post is.

Living not far from Lake Michigan, I've found myself thinking that it might be a potential setting for the OTC, but M&C have mentioned "seas" and "rivers" but never a "lake".

True. It's a little like having slipped past the event horizon of a black hole -- things are a little... different here. But of course raptors can wear hats. At least the dapper-raptors can.

I don't think so.<snip>
We haven't looked east, toward the sea, yet.
Ok. But I'm still claiming a "called it!" if we start panning into an overhead view... Even if it looks like the one BlitzGirl showed.

"Home?" That's the first time that place has been mentioned. Where the Hell is that? Back in Kansas before the tornado brought them to these sands of Oz???
(...and others in following posts then agree on the oddity of it being mentioned...)

Here, here! I'll second that emotion.

Excellent animation! Nice work!
