    We are not amused.

    I dunno what he was going for, but the first thing that came to my mind was the Terry Gilliam animation from Monty Python with a character who’s Queen Victoria from the waist up and a bouncy ball from the waist down.

    Her breasts are bouncing like springs. Either that or she has bats in her belfry.

    It’s a reference to Nostradamus, quatrain 946.

    When the queen, victorious, strides past,
    Upon each step peal forth a dozen bells.
    Yet not from bronze or silver were they cast,
    But rubber, for to sound the strangest knells.

    Okay, I may be underworking this, but the first three panels has Vicky changing orientation slightly, so I figured she’s jumping on the trampoline, and in the last panel, Elizabeth is disapproving.

    There’s no CIDU tag, though - was this just a ‘haha’ comic?

    Should have been a CIDU tag -Bill

    If John @4 is correct, this strip should be the illustration for “esoteric” in the Merriam-Webster.

    As Tuesday’s strip reveals, there’s a trampoline. Edward falls victim to it. We probably won’t get the full pay-off for another day or two.

    Ah. I was thinking bouncy ball too, mostly because (yes, I know it’s because of the way she’s drawn) her arms are down.

    There has also been some discussion recently of recreational hemp usage. So “bong” could allude to a water-pipe smoking implement.

    sorry, I didn’t see that it’s “boIng”.

    mitch4 - Taking part in some of that recreational hemp usage?

    Queen Victoria on a pogo stick! What doesn’t make sense?

    That *is* a saying, isn’t it?

  13. chuckers Jan 28th 2013 at 07:33 pm 13

    Google is telling me it is Christ on a pogo stick.

    Bring back The Man Show and rename one of the popular segments, Queens on Trampolines!

    Anyway, one set of “boings” is the noise of her jumping on the trampoline, and the other set of “boings” is the noise of her ample breasts bouncing.

    Victoria, at 63 years, just nudges out Elizabeth, at 60 years, as the longest-serving English monarch. At only 48 bells the numbers aren’t quite right - there should be an additional two panels - but that’s how it looks to me.

  16. Mark in Boston Jan 28th 2013 at 10:05 pm 16

    But Elizabeth II is narrowing the lead. February 6 marks 61 years, so Good Queen Bess is now in third place.

    Once I used a pogo stick on slippery snow and ended up getting smacked with the pogo stick. No doubt Queen Victoria had a similar experience and is embarassed and in pain. Hence Elizabeth being tactful and saying she doesn’t want to know what happened. Notice there are no “boings” in the last panel

    What’s all this talk about bells and knells. What bell goes “boing”?

  19. AMC Jan 29th 2013 at 09:18 am 19

    It’s a pogo schtick.

  20. Elyrest Jan 29th 2013 at 09:27 am 20

    “It’s a pogo schtick.”

    AMC - Groooooooaaaaaannnnnnnnnnn! But laughing at the same time!

  21. Chakolate Jan 29th 2013 at 03:05 pm 21

    Apparently, it is a trampoline, per today’s strip.

  22. Bill Jan 29th 2013 at 04:52 pm 22

    She’s not going to ask, because it’s Victoria’s Secret…

  23. nile Jan 29th 2013 at 06:15 pm 23

    She’s doing Kegels
