History Aint What It Was #30

This strip is a minor victory for Dale.  A very small, petty victory.  He has promised not to gloat.  His VERY worthy opponents in the battle know the truth.  We will remember this.


Bonus points if you can work out the inspiration for the bonus comic.

Also, some of you have already seen… over on the right, in that red bar down the side, right at the top… got it? …yeah, that poll-looking thing… with the word POLL on top… we’re gonna make some Luci Phurr’s Imps shirts.  Let us know the size you would prefer so we can get an idea of what sizes we need to look at making.  (And in case you are one of those supermodel-skinny-types who is self-conscious about being on the stick-end of the size scale, it is all secret… no one knows who voted for what size (even us – we don’t care… we love you whatever size you are) it’s just so we have an idea of what we need to look at ordering.  Thanks.

    Hmmm….I don’t even know the inspiration to the incentive comic, Dale. But for free bonus points, I’ll give it a few tries. Ummmmm….is it:

    1. Gary Gnu
    2. Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs
    3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King
    4. Homestar Runner
    5. Happy Tree Friends
    6. Ocarina of Time
    7. Voltron (the cars, not the lions)
    8. Fraggle Rock
    9. Garbage Pail Kids
    10. PvP

    …ok, I give up. S

  5. Topazert

    Ah yes, the bonus comic was funny.

  6. Dangerdoll

    Damn legos!

  7. keylaleigh

    …but I like the lion voltron.

  8. Kiriel

    Agreed, Keyla, that Voltron is the better one ;3
    Also, I LOVE Luci’s face in panel 3.. I just had a funny idea, wouldn’t it be amusing if every once and a while in the comics there’d be a small cameo from us Imposters? >3> *whistles innocently*

  9. dale_mettam

    @Kiriel – Have you been looking at the advanced scripts?


    I’ve sad too much.

  10. Courtney

    @ Key and Kiriel: You are right, the Lions are much, much cooler. But the cars are so often forgotten about, so I had to give them some love.

    @Dale: You were totally the kid that told the “birthday kid” what his/her gift was while or before they opened it. Sigh… 😛

  11. jjmblue7

    @ Keyla/Kiriel/Courtney: Lion Voltron is definitely the best. Green Lion with the smart***, nerdy kid, ftw, thought it helps that I grew up a smart***, nerdy kid.

  12. dale_mettam

    @ M’ colleague again. You are incorrect, sir. I would indeed TOTALLY know what you were getting, but I would then just drive you nuts making sure you knew I knew, until you begged me to tell you what it was to end the aura of smugness.

    Wait a minute…

    Stuff like that… it’s why you asked me to write this strip, isn’t it?

  13. kaitekarue

    when your evil by voltair?

  14. Jezzi

    Inspiration: Chicken Man, The white winged weekend warrior: “He’s everywhere! He’s everywhere!” (Maybe it’s a Chicago in the ’80’s thing)

  15. dale_mettam

    @Jezzi – Nope. More literary.

  16. Ragedoll

    for some reason the bonus comic reminds me of darkwing duck… but I have no real idea : ) There was also an old movie, blank man, I believe, could be like that too? haha anyways the bonus comic is amazing :)

  17. dale_mettam

    @rage – if I’d gone with “I am the terror that flaps in the night.” or “Let’s get dangerous.” you would had something. I didn’t. So nope.

  18. dale_mettam

    Hop on over to the Luci Phurr’s Imps Facebook page to see my ABSOLUTE favorite Weekender to date… I give him abuse and a hard time whenever possible (don’t want to, but I’m contractually obliged to… it’s in the small print) but Courtney hit this one outta the park! First Luci in a Weekender strip and he just so nailed the look.

    I will deny this gushing ever happened.

  19. Wizard

    Bonus comic: Grapes of Wrath.

  20. dale_mettam

    DING DING DING! We have a winner! Points to Wizard!

  21. dale_mettam

    It’s Sunday so that means more BEHIND THE IMPS silliness over on the Luci Phurr’s Imps Facebook page… link is above on the right.

  22. Owen

    I like the Behind the Imps strip where you used cake as a holder!!!

  23. Wisdn

    I agree with all of the Voltron discussion…good find Wizard. I unfortunately missed the bonus comic…@dale and @Courtney, is there a possibility of having a special link or section of the site or Facebook page for an archive of the bonus comics?

  24. miah

  25. miah
