    What is the second strip? Sort of looks interesting.

    Todd the Dinosaur. He’s an intelligent, speaking T. Rex (but childish) living with a contemporary American suburban family. Lightly amusing, not as wry as I think it intends to be.

    It’s Todd the Dinosaur. It’s been so long since I’ve seen it that I’d completely forgotten it existed…

    What on earth is a kebob? is it anything like a kebab?

    @ Dave (4) - Personally, I’ve always spelled it “kabob” (usually prefixed by “shish”), but given that the source language is Turkish, it’s not surprising that there are a number of competing transliterations. In Germany (which has a significant Turkish minority), it’s normally spelled “kebap”.

    ahh thanks for clearing that up Kilby.
    that also confirms that I don’t get it!

    Kilby is right to say there are a number of ways to spell - what frankly is a variety of ways to serve/sell spiced meat. Wikipedia gives a good range of the options - which are many.

    @ Dave (6) - The soldier on the left is an American (note the flag in the 3rd panel), complaining about soldiers looting base equipment. The commander on the right is local (Afghan / Iraki, note the red beret), praising his men for creative ingenuity in reusing unneeded gear. Building a snack bar out of an ex-latrine sounds gross, but who knows? It might work, as long as the customers don’t get wind of the source.

    sorry, should have refreshed the page.

    thanks again Kilby. still doesn’t make sense though :)

    Kilby — it’s not an ex-latrine. That’s the problem.

    A meat kebob would look, unfortunately, a little too close to the previous product in that building.

    Jeff S@12: EEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
