I wonder how you tell the difference between the Xal-Gox you eat and the ones you drink.

*yawn* Okay, I really want to make SOME kind of comment about the comic itself, or at least yell at myself for the lazy background, but I really don't have it in me. I didn't even get started on this page until after midnight, and that's after spending all week trying to make headway on Conventional Wisdom. Progress has been slow.

Which brings me to the one thing I WILL say: no voting Incentive again. I know, I know, I REALLY hate to keep punking out on you guys, but I'm just completely spent at the moment. As in, it's disturbingly hard for me to form words right now.

So, yeah. I'll come back and make some intelligent observations once some of the other 145,761,349 thing I need to finish this week are done. In the meantime, you guys can make some intelligent comments of your own! You're good at that.

I think I can guess why the comic seemed later than usual this time.

I get the impression that Ichabod already had a pretty good idea of how much he could drink in one night (judging by the lack of apparent ill-effects) and that he seems to know more about the events of the recent arc than would seem expected, given that he wasn't involved in a lot of it. Well, expected if he wasn't a nitpicker I guess...

...You know, I'm not sure I'd trust to eat the contents of a can labelled "Can of Edible Objects"... Also, it seems like it could be a little messy to be eating with your hand...

Concerning Xal-Gox: The ones you drink have straws!.... maybe? Honestly, I wouldn't know. I'm not about to eat OR drink one of those things.
Of course, it is possible that they are the same, they have liquid inside them that you drink and then you eat the rest of it. Or something. I'm trying to decide if that would make them more creepy.

At first, I figured they had a juicy center too. The more I think about it, though, the less sense that makes. I mean, that's make Xal-Gox REALLY messy to bite into or eat on a stick like we've seen before. Maybe they're bred with labels on them?

@Blitz: Breeding labels onto Xal-Gox sounds horrendous. Probably thousands of generations would be required. And then you might end up with a typo... In other words, perfect for the insanity of Far out There! The idea also makes me think of Discworld, as plants grow with mis-spelled medical labels, because plants aren't good at spelling.
