    You should never trust those traveling viagra peddlers…

  2. Richard says:

    Horny Deer Weed maybe?

  3. Kinto_M says:

    “Tired of always going stag? Want to buck the trend? Want the ladies to fawn all over you and your hart-stopping good looks? Then have I got the product for you!” crowed the peddler. In hind-sight, we probably should have wondered more about his choice of words.

  4. Holly says:

    Kinto_M, you just made my day. 😀

  5. Haven says:

    Kinto wins.

    As do the bemused looks in the last panel.

  6. Stuball says:

    An excellent job, my deer Kinto! I herd you were good, but I’m just stuck in a rut. Well done!

  7. Kinto_M says:

    I was aiming for the funny bone. Glad to see I could pricket.

  8. Archangel Beth says:

    *groans appreciatively at puns* The risks of being overly horny, I guess…

  9. Tris says:

    Well, he is talking to three females and a child. Bound to be a little awkward about… such things.

  10. Kayru says:

    Some of the expressions in this page are the best Ursula’s ever done, IMO.

  11. Werrf says:

    So…Herne has a beef with a travelling salesman/trader, eh? Given the connections that tend to crop up, I wonder if Digger’s next contact with Trader Manuel might be a little more…interesting…than she might like.

  12. CovenantFan says:

    (Disaproving Mommy look) “Puns are the lowest form of humor” (but the only ones I get)
    Congrats to you both!

  13. Hamor says:

    Kinto = win!

  14. Kasper says:

    Kinto, that’s going in my D&D campaign, word for word. And I already know which player will fall for it.

  15. BunnyRock says:

    Kinto, brilliant.

  16. Prof says:

    To translate their look in the last panel:


  17. Eugene says:

    Considering hyena culture, you’d only be half-right. Grim Eyes’ look is probably more of a, “I’ll have to keep that in mind the next time a snake oil salesman comes my way..”

  18. Rista-liehna says:

    I interpreted the looks in the last panel as “you know what he’s not saying too, don’t you?”

  19. Faranior says:

    Kinto FTW
    …and you could say that the merchant has been a (t)horn in his side since then

  20. fishboy says:

    Kinto – that was awesome 🙂

  21. Mark Antony says:

    I’m laughing so hard from what Kinto said that this took two minutes to type.

  22. snake oil salesman XD

  23. BunnyRock says:

    arrrggg. i re-read Kinto’s comment. “In HIND-sight, we should have wondered more about his chose of words.” that one got past me first time!

    And Eugene, i wouldn’t be so sure. Spotted Hyenas have some of the sympathetic nervous system reverenced compared to most mammals. That is to say some involuntary fight-or-flight functions appear reversed. To put in bluntly, we all know about girl hyenas plumbing by this point. Hyenas of both sexes use erect phallus’s in dominance displays. The interesting bit is as opposed to other animals that do so, say Bonobos, chips and (by a variety of symbolic proxy’s, usually, hopefully) human males, with Hyenas an erect phallus shows SUBMISSION, not dominance and is an involuntary fear response to aggression from a superior hyena of ones own in-group. Of course as the continued existence of baby hyenas bears out, things still get used in the usual way as well, and other ways too given how complex hyena social groups are. As a result I doubt Grim-Eyes would care one way or another about such a product even without the side effect. No one wants a pill that makes them look involuntarily submissive.

    This is also why I flagged Owl-caller as male early on; he was holding a staff. Given in any culture based on Hyena biology both sexes are likely to use phallic symbolism, the fact he alone felt it was necessary whilst surrounded by the female elders, and the fact it was a staff and not a spear and as a result very symbolically lacking in power if ever compared to the spears we had prior seen the females using, had me interested from the start. Of course, he may just be old and need it to walk.

    And now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go and have a nice lie down and a nice talk to Herr Freud about my mother… have a link. its wiki, but I’ve checked the citation and it seems okay.


  24. StinkyOldBear says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. BunnyRock, I want to be your friend.

  25. Kinto, that’s a horrible barrage of puns and you should be ashamed of yourself.
    Of course, I’m still grinning.

    Last panel: says it all.

  26. Trogdog says:

    I think bunnyrock has got a new stalker.

  27. Trogdog says:

    Oh, and also, your creeping me out bunny.

  28. Rooke says:

    Woot for tv tropes reference!

  29. lduke says:

    Kinto’s hurricane of puns is very much FTW, now go look up hurricane of puns on TVTropes so I can feel like a right bastard 🙂

  30. JET73L says:

    Kinto, that was amazing. BunnyRock, as always, you exceed our expectations (or at least my expectations) of any post each time you produce such information.

    I am having trouble interpreting Digger’s expression in the last panel. It could be any one of several things depending on what you assume she assumes and knows, and what her opinions on certain… activities, actions, intentions, human things, etc. are.

    I’m going to hate myself for saying this, but I wonder if the snake-oil salesman specialized in topical medications.[/reference to syntactic ambiguity]
