I’m wondering if he used a plot coupon?
At least it wasn’t Ving Rhames’ soul.
Ha ha, very punny!
I liked the framing around that ad.
Man, I could go for a McGuffin right about now. And supersize it!
You’ll need a green screen to go with it, lots of crappy CGI in the McGuffins nowadays.
Ho ho, Readers! Looks like Billy’s got Egg McGuffin on his face!
This will be much funnier in IMAX 3D.
Trying to figure out the chapter number. The “V” with a bar over it is 5,000, but the following “I” seems out of place. Anyone?
I wish TinTin and Snowy were on the case instead of those two phony’s. Great Snakes that would be action.
IL is 49. Smaller numbers before larger numbers are subtracted from the larger number.
Interesting. I’ve seen this within a decade, like XL (40), IV (4) or IX (9), never saw it spanning more than one decade.
So V is 5,000 and to that we add ILXVI, parsing 49 + 16 (XVI) for 65? Why not just LXV? Still puzzled.
It’s a little hard to make out here, but the bar is supposed to cover both the V and I. You can see this a bit clearer in the last episode here, Into the Uncanny Valley.
So it’s not out of place and no unusual rules are required. The chapter here is VI x 1000 + LXVI = 6066, and the previous one was 6070. I assume the chapters between are reserved for the inner hive.
It’s out of place. Look, he just added the i back at the end. Of course he’s probably just making a deliberately silly Roman numeral.
“an Auntie Anne’s pretzels”? Even in the UK that would be grammatically inconsistent.
It’s an “Auntie Anne’s Pretzels.” It’s a chain of stores; so the awkward construction would be like saying “in a ‘Heron Foods.’”
Red herring’s not too bad if you add a little twist of plot.
