...and in the spirit of Anton Chekhov, Kanny's GPS-device crops up again!

Listen Sister sister,
there ain't no time to bicker,
We gotta banish Anutrofho,
Flat tyre ritual is the way to go!

(Cool, I think I never got a comment in rhyme form before! :-D )

There was a girl from Atlantis,
who one day said: "I don't want this!"
So she sailed away,
became a pirate one day,
now likes her cutlass and sea shanties!

Ah, Fabs, that's not how you do a dirty limerick:

There once was a girl from the seas
whom Atlantean life did not please
so she sailed away,
became a pirate for pay,
and now wears skull and crossbones panties

OK, a second attempt...

There was a tall girl with blonde hair,
she loved science and did not play fair.
She summoned a demon,
this got sour like a lemon,
her fate is right now still unclear!

I can't help but think that using a semi-catatonic Peter as the fourth could have... consequences...

It's certainly not the ideal solution, but you have to work with what you get...

Well...it's also not her fault that she lived in a time where automobiles didn't exist.

That too! It's not exactly something you can choose! :-D

Thanks for the link in the comments, for immediately quashing my complaint of how sunken civilizations are tracked via GPS. All long-form webcomic writers should do this.

I always consider the author comment to be the equivalent of a DVD commentary! :-)

I'm not too worried -- the ability of groggy grad students to function anyway is frankly supernatural!

This will probably all work out without a hitch! ;-)

Peter should print this on his business cards! :-D
