Make no mistake, Ethel Meyerlink is not a piece dove, she's a goddam bird of prey!

Also, let's ignore the fact that in real life there aren't any albatrosses in the North Atlantic area.

But what would be Ethel's first choice for a meal?
Well...

Well, I guess I'm safe from her (literal, nutritional) menu.

When Ethel watched Soylent Green, she didn't really get all the fuss around the big twist...

surprising violence

check out my incentive in a couple days, Ethel's popular

Well, the comic does have a yellow V flag...
And I'd say the gore on this page is on about the same level as in a lot of dinosaur books for kids!

Also, an Ethel incentive?
Sounds incentivizing!!

Killing a bird of good omen? That's a torturous time of bad luck

Also the bloody page is a nice choice

Maybe the albatross will give Ethel some nasty indigestion...

Also, glad to hear that someone appreciates the bloody page! :-)
(Though I think lirvilas may have done something similar before at some point...)

Poor-poor albatros! But eat that two mice, too, Ethel.
Microraptor edit delete reply
Microraptor
Haha!

Well, Ethel once threatened to eat a certain rat, so I guess she wouldn't be all too averse to eating mice either...

In flight meal

Microraptor
Yep! However, sadly with no in flight movie to accompany it!

Now I'm thinking of the Monty Python albatross skit from "Live at the Hollywood Bowl"

It seems you mean this one?

("ALBATROSS!")
Damoinion edit delete reply
Yep, that would be the one!

At least you can use the bones as toothpicks to get all the feathers out of your teeth XD

Fun fact: Bird bones are hollow!
(So I guess Ethel could also use them as straws...?)
Stever edit delete reply
Stever
Mmm, sharp smelly straws.

Killing an albatross at sea? Is she CRAZY?! Doesn't she know that's bad luck?!

Ethel probably never read Coleridge...

(Though you could argue that arriving to see a huge pillar of smoke coming out of your shop is bad luck!)

I'd like to see if she could take on a Grumman HU-16, by gum!

Microraptor
Being human-sized, Ethel may be in about the same size range as an albatross - but to tackle even a small airplane, she would need to be as large as a pterosaur! ;-D

The Grumman, as it happens, is a twin Radial-powered amphibian, ergo non-trivial. Pterosaurs, on the other hand, at least according to the fossil record, ranged in size from roughly large-human-sized to ginormous.

My version of the cryptid kongamato, as seen in the linked page, is supposed to be an azhdarchid pterosaur, the prehistoric taxon that had the largest flying animals we know about.
The largest known flying birds however were the prehistoric species Pelagornis sandersi and, more fitting for Ethel, Argentavis magnificens.
