    Doesn’t Sings-to-Trees have that book?

  2. Kinto_M says:

    I rather like that second panel. It says so much with just a single building and a speech bubble.

  3. Tindi says:

    Sings-to-Trees has “101 Troll Diseases.” Similar, but not quite. 😉

  4. Kasper says:

    “I hate my life”… Well, when sitting in that place for forced extended exercise, I feel the same way.

  5. NexoxEnigma says:

    101 Goat Diseases in the out house… Seems so Pratchett-like… Wyrd Sisters, natch.

  6. Tom Long says:

    I suppose the book is part of a series.

  7. Mark Antony says:

    Also from that series are “101 Professional Troll Diseases”, which is a book about ailments of shrews, and “101 Vegetable Diseases”, which devotes and entire chapter to the various ways plants can turn into ravenous undead monsters.

  8. thisfox says:

    Why not tell the Shadowchild that the current illness is PROOF that it was wrong to eat a talking person? Basically true.

  9. TekServer says:

    That could be a dangerous path to take, thisfox.

    Digger: “Don’t eat someone that can talk, or you’ll get sick like I did.”

    Shadowchild: “But I did eat someone that talks, you know, the bandit, back before you told me it was wrong! And I didn’t get sick then … ”

    And Digger would then be caught in a lie …

  10. StinkyOldBear says:

    I love that Digger refuses to recognize cultural relativism. That, I believe, is fascinating, and says a great deal about Wombats in general.

  11. Ryn says:

    She tried, but was hiving trouble really believing it, and then explaining it.

  12. JET73L says:

    “Don’t eat that hippie hyena garbage that will make you vomit a couple of times! Here, have this stuff mixed with foul-tasting oil that will put you in the jakes for eight hours. Spiteful? Me? Nah, that’d be unprofessional of me.”

  13. Dan D says:

    Given Ursula’s theory that goats are the domesticated form of trolls, it’s pretty much the same book, just rewritten to replace a few found in the wild with a few resulting from pasturing.
