It’s The End Of The World As We Know It: Part 1 #10

I’m sure we’ll get someone who wants to know what exactly the Mayan Incantation that runs along the bottom of the strip is actually saying.

Don’t bother.

Andre, here at Luci Phurr’s Imps Tower lettered this strip and while he speaks Ancient Mayan fluently, though he does have a slight (and admittedly curious) Finnish accent to his Mayan, he can’t write in that language to save his life…. so honestly, it could be THE MAYAN’S grocery list for all we know…. it could be Andre’s grocery lists…. we really don’t know.

That’s what makes it extra mysterious!

Easier to understand, however, is the new bonus comic!  HUZZAR!

    Well let me see. Pull out the old Ancient Mayan to English dictionary. OK, “grem nok creb” umm humm… “shuko cek krarbic nooko” Uh huh… and that is…. OK Got it! The translation is:

    “It’s a small world after all, It’s a small world after all, It’s a small world after all, It’s a small, small world…”

    How evil can you get!

    Third panel – Angel girl’s got some crazy anatomy going on there. Either her shoulder is dislocated, or her right breast ha migrated, like a flounder’s second eye, to the middle of her chest.

    Well, you know, it’s all the difference between finding someone’s house and being sure they’re home. =)

    (and my Ancient Mayan to English dictionary translates that as “this is a song that never ends” – that’s the last time I grab a translation guide off the clearance table!)

    So help me, if this turns out to be the frog from Zuma…

    “All of our technicians are busy helping other deities bring an end to their worlds. Your call is important to us; please remain in the temple.”

    Just thought I should say, that the translation Google gave me for that was : “I know a song that’ll get on your nerves I know a really good song and this is how it goes!” longest translation ever

    I think you’ve mistranslated that, Baughbe…it goes:

    This is the song that doesn’t end
    it just goes on and on my friend
    some people started singin’ it, not knowing what it was
    And they’ll just keep on singin’ it forever just because….

    Lloyd George knew my father… Father knew Lloyd George…

    @tobias – I’d like to take issue with your comments regarding “Angel girl” in panel three, because it’s actually fine. She has rather pert and youthful… um… how can I put this nicely…. she has rather pert and youthful dirty pillows…. chesticles if you will…. jubblies…. you get the picture.

    But I have to admire your leaping in here and offering an artistic critique. We here at Luci Phurr’s Imps Tower are always open to someone wandering by who, out of the kindness of their heart and obvious concern for our maintaining the high standards we’re known for across the world (well, in certain parts of New Delhi, Minnesota and a shopping mall parking lot in Milton Keynes). As such, and in the spirit of sharing, I thought I should offer you the same love, by offering a small critique of your comment.

    “Third panel – Angel girl’s got some crazy anatomy going on there. Either her shoulder is dislocated, or her right breast ha migrated, like a flounder’s second eye, to the middle of her chest.”

    First of all, (and I really do hate to labor a point once made, but it seems to fit this part) you’re just flat-out wrong. Setting that aside, passing comments on the work of someone else, I find it behoves the commenter to at least make sure they haven’t included a typo. It kinda undermines any and all moment of superiority one might hold (even if said moment is, as I said before, based on something that is completely wrong… oops… ignore that bit, it was like hammering a point, the point being that you were wrong, for a third time…. though this parenthetical would further that to four times).

    And “Angel girl” has a name. I actually go to quite some effort to come with names, and y’know, since Isobel has been running through the LPI world now for close to a year, I don’t think it’d be THAT hard to work it out. Even a flounder could remember that, and they make goldfish look like Marvo the Memory Man.

    Also, and this might come off as picky, but “Angel girl” should be “angel girl.” If her name was Angel girl (which it isn’t…. and if you actually thought it was, then technically it shoulda been Angel Girl…. and you woulda been wrong again…. which wouldn’t have been that surprising in context here) you’d have been OK (parenthetical notwithstanding – the previous one, not THIS one), but it isn’t…. so you’re wrong on that too.

    Anyways, you’re welcome.

    I know, that was kinda assy, but in my defense, I recently spent 10 hours in a car with my immediate family in holiday traffic and this was preceded by holiday time with extended family, which in turn was preceded by 10 hours in a car with my immediate family in holiday traffic. It brings out the worst in me. I should probably apologize…. but…. and I may have mentioned this, but my holiday weekend was somewhat trying and I’m not gonna.

    …oh…. and welcome to the comments.
