    So his ancestors evolved into fox-like creatures to infiltrate the fox population. Diabolical!

  3. Avatar Bael says:

    I… don’t think that’s how that works. I hope not, anyway.

  4. Avatar Gero says:

    Nope. That guy that can fly because he was raised by birds is still the champ of aweful origin stories…

  5. Avatar Mr.MikeK says:

    Likely the same guy who came up with Nightbird’s secret origin of “Gee, I found a costume.”

  6. Avatar Albannach says:

    His “ancesters”, eh?

  7. Avatar Lime says:

    “Hunters” here being a word that means “seducers.”

    “….and this is A Sniveling Little Rat-Faced Git…..”

  9. Avatar Trekkie says:

    He really doesn’t that much like a fox. Is he sure it was foxes his ‘ancesters’ were hunting?

  10. Avatar Nick Hentschel says:

    The whiskers suggest that they were preoccupied with another animal entirely…..

    Well, just call me Vegetable Head then.

    It could be worse. If I came from a long line of wood workers, I might be Chairface from the Tick.

    That’s called “phoning it in.”

    Foxface? Looks more like Ratface to me.

    So if I spend much of my time hunting for bargains, what will my many-times-great-grandson’s face look like?

  15. Avatar Frankie says:

    @TheNate: Probably 20% off, or 1/2 price.

  16. Avatar Nick Hentschel says:

    TheNate (14) and Frankie (15): …Or he’ll look like one of those smiley-faces from WalMart…..

  17. As Valhallen said to Ratman: “Dude, your origin makes no sense.”

    This is what comes of committing ancest.

    It’s a good job his ancesters were not great gynecologists eh!

    @The Atomic Punk (17): Justice Friends unite!

  21. Avatar Gero says:

    @Punk 17: Great, now I’m all sad and nostalgic…

  22. Avatar Nick Hentschel says:

    “How’s it goin’, Ferret-face?” – B.J. Hunnicutt to Frank Burns

    How’s THAT for nostalgia?

  23. Avatar Johnny Gear says:

    Wow, and I was just watching a M*A*S*H marathon yesterday. Of course it seems like those are always on.

  24. Avatar Nick Hentschel says:

    They HAD a marathon, in one episode…..

    I think his race was on an episode of Grim.
