    Whatever you do, don’t lift the lid from that toilet over there!

    Wait wait wait…back up…”It’s a good thing I landed on those spikes before you did?” Is that the Iron Head, or Skull, or whatever? Did he land on said spikes head first, his ferrous noggin of power protecting the rest of his squishy body? Is that why he’s still, I don’t know, walking around?

  3. Jose Inoa says:

    Yes! Notice the ‘damage’ Iron Skull’s suit took!
    Now, let’s see what happens when he asks the magic mirror… “Who’s the most ferrous man of all?”

    (I go crawl back into hidey-hole now.)

    What obvious? I would never have imagined that was a door!

  5. Jeff Hebert says:

    Yes, that’s “Iron Skull”. I believe they quickly migrated the iron to the rest of him too so he could be super.

    I just loved that all three things being said were super obvious. Yes, it’s a good thing the guy made out of iron landed on the spikes first. Duh.

    Yes, they escaped, since you’re looking at them. Duh.

    And yes, the voice is coming from over there, where you hear it coming from. Duh.

    Tal you’re right, it’s not obvious that’s a door, and so Brown Suit Guy wins the battle of wits!

    Of course, the comment was included to let people know that the ‘toilet seat lid’ over there was, in fact, a circular door…
    As the artist was certainly incapable of drawing something that looked anything like a door! :->
