    The whistle is great :p

  2. ngögam says:

    Just what *is* the statue of Ganesh made of? Here Digger calls it “a wooden elephant” but back at https://diggercomic.com/?p=79 it refers to itself as “a magic being of stone and divinity”. It’s hard to believe Digger could mistake a stone statue for a wooden one…

  3. Ben says:

    @ngögam – I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a wombat colloquilism for “unstable” or some such. After all, to creatures so intimately familiar with stone, wood must seem a woefully inadequate building material…

  4. Eagle0600 says:

    Or it could just be a continuity error. For a seat-of-the-pants webcomic, that wouldn’t be surprising.

  5. TekServer says:

    Why can’t it be both? A carved wooden elephant head on top of a stone foundation, perhaps, or something similar …

    😉

  6. Sammi says:

    I dunno. If Ganesh is actually made of divinity, it would seem logical that the divinity is somewhere in its body. Wood is a lot more porous than stone, so it might be easier for divinity to seep into wood. The statue, meanwhile, sees things differently than we do (or wombats do), and so may perceive the relatively un-divine stone as stone and the divinely-saturated wood as pure divinity.

    Ben gets the No-Prize!

  8. jaynee says:

    Hmm. When did the statue become the god, again?

  9. Tindi says:

    I think Digger is still a mite unclear on that point, jaynee. It is a bit confusing if you don’t do gods.

  10. Walt says:

    Looks like digger got another shadow on her heart right there.

    I find it hard to believe that no one got the Tolkien reference there in the last text-box. Read The Hobbit and you’ll see what I mean.
