    Sounds like the sound of a bus. Paw, your imagination. Splat!

    That’s one slow falling gorilla, for them to be able to finish that conversation. And a polite one, too, to let them.

    I generally find the flying ninja gorillas to be the most polite of the various aeronautical martial arts primates. But that’s just me.

    Who knows? Maybe in a few million years ninja gorillas will be evolved enough to drive ninja tanks.

    Who would see that shadow and immediately think “gorilla”?

  6. Avatar Jeff Hebert says:

    @Gero: I know, right? And then not just recognize it as an attacking gorilla, but to muse out loud about the fact rather than instinctively whipping around to face it or running or something? Maybe he’s a philosopher assistant.

    @Jeff: Are you SURE that you didn’t alter that panel in any way????? 😉 Could it be that they actually were THAT naive back in the early 40’s????

  8. Avatar cavalier says:

    Just where are THEIR shadows? Is there a special ‘gorilla’ lamp?

    And, yes, they identify and discuss the shadow’s shape quickly. Ya know, ‘sailing’ is actually a leisurely way to travel. Maybe it’s gently wafting over them?

    shadow of doubt confirms it’s a man in a gorilla suit

  10. Avatar Frankie says:

    I think it’s a sasquatch in a gorilla suit.

    Maybe it’s just a gorilla shaped beacon. It could happen.
    And yes, ninja gorillas are extraordinarily courteous. I think it’s the Japanese influence.
