A Mouthfull of Teeth

Yup, polar bears have 10 teeth more than you if you are like me and have a big mouth that your wisdom teeth fit into, or they have 14 more teeth than you if you had them forceably yanked from your skull. Actually they could have up to 22 more teeth than you if you are just a young kid and haven’t gotten any of your molars yet. I guess they might even have 42 more teeth than you if you are old and they have all fallen out, or if you got into a lot of bar fights, or if you never brushed your teeth! Shame on you… for shame.

It’s actually not an incredibly large number, but it is the most that any bears have. It seems like a lot to Osbourne who has no teeth and eats everything whole or in thrown up fashion while he was a chick. If you have a dog, he or she should actually have 42 teeth too. Killer Whales have 56 teeth. Blue Whales have no teeth, but they have 300-400 baleen plates they use for filtering krill out of the water.

When I’m old and my teeth fall out I’m not going to get false teeth but rather false baleen plates. I will be so cool at the old folks’ home, sitting there at lunchtime filtering the chunks out of my soup, creamy broth running down my chin. It’s going to be awesome!

New Happy Feet Trailer

I forgot to mention that at the Ice Age opening I saw the new trailer for Happy Feet. It’s Robin Williams’ character singing and is pretty cute. He’s an adelie penguin, you’ll notice a gray tuft of fur on his head, that would be a sign that he is a chick that is just finishing his first molt from the baby “fur” to swimming feathers. That little tuft on the head is often the last thing to go, probably since the penguin cannot reach that spot to help it along. So the character is either young, or the character designers used reference photos of juvie penguins and just thought that was cute.

Anyway, the video:


New Wallpaper

Here’s some new wallpaper from the cowboy comics. I’ll probably be doing another one or two based on that storyline too.

    awesome! I never knew polar bears had so many teeth, shows how smart I am, lol. 😀

  • antarticus

    yay new comic! he should have yoused those during polar bear training :-)

  • Sev

    I would say that I was amazed that you bothered to draw exactly 42 teeth, but then you’d know I counted.

    The question of Life, the Universe, and everything is, “how many teeth does a polar bear have?”

    That doesn’t make any more sense than the answer.

  • Matt D

    Haha, the last panel is gold. I can’t decide if it’s because of Wally’s smile or Osbourne’s eyes though.

  • Mentalbug

    Today’s comic is the kind of reason for wich one should not read comics while at work… 😀
    So funny it was hard not to start laughing out loud ;P

    Wally’s the best :]

  • Alexander

    Aww the comic is super, and the video is nice! Good work man.


  • Kevin

    It looks like Wally has a moutful of harmonica – comedy gold.

  • bobo

    cool video and the Wallpaper is geting beter and beter.

  • bobo

    oh i thot that this was todays

  • James

    That last picture is hysterical!

  • RW

    The last panel reminds me of loony toons or something, like when they eat a hugely long sandwitch sideways.

    lol, I’m gonna stop brushing my teeth just so they all fall out so I can get them replaced with false baleen plates! 😀

  • Sev

    I’m going to have my teeth replaced with tools. How often have I been working on a fence and just wished I could cut wire with my mouth? Well, I wish no more.

  • Sev

    Also, BBC radio scooped you by like six months. If I remember correctly, the movie will be about a young penguin who can’t sing to attract a mate, so he learns to tapdance.

    So I think the penguin in the picture is probably supposed to be a youngin.

  • bobo

    a tap-danceing penguin i want see that 😉

  • Tyler Martin

    Hey I was on top of Happy Feet back in September…

    Robin Williams character is singing in that clip, he can sing, he’s not the main character that must dance. Also notable, Adelie penguins don’t reach breeding age for 7 or 8 years, the oldest of all the penguins I believe.

  • Sev

    Just admit it, man. You got stone cold scooped.

    Marble slab even.

  • Neal

    I dont want to be there when he gets hungry

  • eris

    Ack, I’m a little disturbed by having been inside a juvie penguin, hearing him sing from down by his hearty-weart!

  • Zoey

    I liked osbournes eyes in the third panel

  • anjali

    don’t worry,sev, you’re not alone…i counted too…
