    I absolutely adore the ‘eye’ shot of the squash! Closely following that is the leafy hands around Digger’s leg as it attempts to gnaw her with its stem. It’s awesome how much personality you manage to give a gourd without making it all Disney-cartoony.

    I’ve been loving this but this one just made me snort with laughter. Gotta be concerned about being unable to distinguish between attack and romance 😉

  3. Renita says:

    Oh man, this just made my day. This comic wouldn’t have been complete without a crazy fruit/vegetable creature. You gave it wonderful personality.

  4. Glenn says:

    I’m bound to use “attacked or possibly romanced” in casual conversation tomorrow, I feel it.

    * “Rrawww!” Means “I love you” in Angry Squash.

    catching up. running through this back catalog as a friend just recommended this to me. “probably should have taken that whole Poppy Milk thing a little more seriously.” Love it. 🙂

    “GNAW”ing is just part of their mating ritual

    What is it about legs? They’re always getting humped or bitten! I mean, sure they’re the next closest thing you can reach when you’re at ground level, but come on! There’s face-huggers, which my iBook dictionary insists should read: face-muggers, among other things, head-crabs, and head-worms have above the neck taken care of, but what about the torso?! Wrestling aside, where are the body-blows?! Of course, I almost neglected to take into account the size of the attacker’s jaws (or whatever counts for that here). /endramble

    hee hee!
    As soon as i saw that the gourd could talk… it reminded me of The Muppets and their talking fruits/vegetables…

    ah… *reminiscing*

  10. BunnyRock says:

    @Fixer-Wolfie: what about the Thing from “The Thing” which went fro…pretty much every body part possible, and the chest-busters? the face-huggers do go for the thorax, just at a different stage of their life cycle… and from a different direction.

    Someone just got a new avataaaaar!

  12. […] Vernon’s Digger; when they first show up, they really don’t seem capable of much beyond gnawing legs, but then they make their first […]

    You have NO idea what this part of this comic has done to my life. I really and honestly don’t know where I would be today if not for the angry squash. What would my life be like without vampiric cabbage, fanged peas & hams, the dreaded Cucumber Lord, Bob the Potato, and all the others? Even the manholes and muskoxen might be a product of this adorably dangerous gourd!

    No, you don’t want to know what I’m talking about. Trust me.

    Let’s not forget the Melon Lord, either.
