The Unfortunate Case of the Dickfishon December 4, 2008 at 9:36 am
Today’s comic was unintentionally harrowing. Sure, we’ve done (multiple) comics where children encounter tentacled monsters and people battle bears with robot-parts, but that doesn’t come close to the horror that is the candiru. I’m trying to think of members species of the animal kingdom that are more terrifying, but nothing really is as … unsettling. I guess it could be worse. The fish could be programmed to explode when it finds itself trapped, but I haven’t read anything on that. Maybe you have. I defy you to browse Wikipedia and find another animal that elicits the same squirm as the dickfish.
