The next question is, will he come back the next day?

And if he does, might this be a typical day for him? Spending days in this office, waiting for someone to notice him, learning about these people and thier lives, watching them and gathering information, until the day when he and his brimley hoards come out of the frozen waste to TAKE OVER THE MARKETING DEPARTMENT!!!

They will RUE the day they didn't notice him!

Ah, yes, the infamous Brimley Invasion of '03. T'was a chilling day in the history of man-kind.

How many people did I hear say that Mars was only visible on that night.
It poses a dilemma, do you A: explain to people why they are wrong and seem like an almanac jerk? or B: not say anything an be annoyed that people don't listen to anything including JR high science class.

The correct answer is C: remember that most people could give a (insert horrible thing here) about science or art, or anything that isn't them. Is that the theme of the comic? Is everyone so obsessed with something that they cannot see anythng?

OK, I'm now hoping that Bernice isn't a walrus... sorry, a brimley. Our poor unnoticed fellow deserves better than her.

Maybe Susan will abandon her hopeless crush on Stuart and notice our brimley!






Or not. Well, it was a nice thought.

Actually, if you believe Einstein, gravity is caused by massive objects curving, or warping, the fabric of time/space.

BTW Are you like me, waiting for the Feds to burst in and bust Slick Stephen for some white-collar offense? Hmm, maybe our brimley (I'm just waiting for Wilfred to file some legal action) is actually an undercover agent for the S.E.C.

Bernice may not be a walrus, but she's certainly not a Martian. If she is, then she's a retarded Martian.

That prick. He should be nicer to Susan.

And I love the irony of the secretary on the phone. "Yeah, I showed them..."

No, it wasn't. It would have been, had anyone noticed it. After all, the brimleys were too polite for their own good.

It would be more exciting if you had noticed the brimley.

I was thinking that back about 2 weeks ago but something happened in the meantime -- I'm loving it now!

I don't think he'll be noticed either. He's so polite he must be canadian!

I've actually been quite enjoying this rambling improv. As I just noticed the time on the clock, I thought that the strip (in its goofy fashion) actually captures the strange ups and downs of a day in even the most average of offices. I dig that kind of thing. The drama of a single day... The Ulysses prerogative!

He's reading War and Peace. That raises my esteem of him.

I wonder if he'll take the cake. No one else will eat it; Mr. D's making them work without pause.

I don't think so. I don't see a beer or a doob in his hand. (or is it a flipper?)

Only if it's a fish-cake. (Mmmmmm, fish-cakes)


Nobody in the office noticed Stephen cop a feel off of Cathy.

Still no sign of Bernice.

Wow, what a panel.

And Bernice is STILL off camera.

Scott, it must be kind of a rush to have your comics examined panel by panel so closely. Too often I put in a subtle joke or detail and wonder if anyone will ever notice...my walrus...or what have you.

Or maybe it's nervewracking (sp?)

Wait a minute! Walruses don't have legs! Maybe that's the difference between a walrus and a brimly.

Hang on- Maybe this is all an experiment in misdirection! Could it be that we're all so wrapped up in brimley-watching that we're missing something else ultra-important? What could it be?

Stephen (or Gus) noticed the brimley. (Is the italicization required? It's a nice touch, at any rate.) Look at the expression on that face; notice the "oooh"; notice the time. If the brimley is going to be noticed, it's within the next five minutes, and the special Mask of Propogative Economics will facilitate his discovery. (Note the telescopic eyes and, um, mouth.)

I assume that the office the walrus* is waiting in is an advertising agency; not a real one but a TV sitcom one, as found in Bewitched and other fine television shows that I wasted my youth watching. That would explain the cow on Susan's clipboard, the weird props and the converstion about monkeys.

It might even explain the walrus! (Although not why no one notices him.)

that big face prop thing looks like the masks that the business men and women were wearing in in McCloud's 24 Hour Comic

It would've been funny to hear, "WHAT IS THE FREQUENCY, KENNETH?!" from beyond view a few times during this comic. Then we'd know exactly what their jobs are, or at least those in the office approaching 6 figures.

"Walrus" seems to be a clearing house, of sorts, for many McCloudian references and in-jokes. We've had talking like pirate, monkeys, seeing Mars for the "first time" in 60,000 years, those head things, and more. I really get the feeling that whatever Scott's thinking about in a given day somehow finds its way into the comic.

That makes it kind of a time capsule in a way, in addition to simply being a charming comic in its own right. Definitely one of the most successful improvs to date!
