Actually I think there's too much colour in this strip. *derp* I think it looks better in black and white, but that won't be until it appears in print form.

Whatcha tallkin' about Mark?! I love this strip in colour. :)

But LOL, I'm surprised that the menu didn't specify in English what's in the dish first. :D

I plan to eat a hamburger joint after I graduate High School Today.

Water is only making things worse Linda. You need milk or tequila.

And I think it's "por la ardilla" that is "for the squirrel". "De la ardilla" is "of the squirrel"

Should've gotten a margarita with that thing Russ.

@Dan You're right about the mistranslation, though if you know what 'El Abrasador' is supposed to mean then "OF the squirrel" does accurately sum up exactly what happens next!
Dan 13th Jun 2014, 4:20 PM edit delete reply
I did. And you are right that would be a very accurate explanation as to what is happening. XD

The bright colors on the parrots are indeed a bit of an eyesore.

And what's with the auras around most of the characters?

Very comical outcome Mark! :)

Hoo-boy! THAT'S why I never eat that stuff. Even after Russ' mouth stops hurting... The pain isn't going to end, it's just going to move along.

My aunt and uncle burned their tasebuds out on hot spices. I dreaded visiting them as a child, because on my aunt's scale "mild" was still "volcanic" to me. This was back in the days of The Spice Girls, and behind her back we referred to her as "Lethal" Spice.

@Kangaar Foxfire Haha, I love to whole 'Lethal Spice' story. XD

@Keenfox - Heh. Glad you enjoyed it. Thinking back I should correct myself though. I should have said "late teens" rather than "child."

PS - In one of life's ironies when I took a serving of one of the stews at church lunch today there was a high curry content. Why me? 9_9

This comic is hilarious Mark.
I'm not kidding I LOVE it. Especially the colors
KeenyFox as always you made my day :)

Jake don't say that in a PG-13 comic.

P.S. What's wrong with to much color?
If you saw my Deviantart profile lately, my pics are black & white.
And I'm ashamed of my colorless artwork.
You make it work cause your incredible when it comes to art.

I guess my reaction to that hot dish would be me swearin' and sayin' "Jesus Christ". I would say "Sh**!!!, Ah!!! ahhhhh!!!!! Jesus!!!!, Christ!!!!"

I remembered when me and my fmily were celebrating my dad's 50th birthday at an Indian restaurant, I learned the extremely hard way that water doesn't cool the palate-And, for a useful note, Linda...giving water to someone with hot pepper mouth is like pouring water on a chip pan fire.
FreyFox 23rd Jun 2014, 5:13 PM edit delete reply
@Rhett So what did you use to cool the palate in the end?
D.N. 3rd Jul 2014, 3:50 PM edit delete reply
You should use either milk or alcohol.
RhettRaccoon 11th Jul 2014, 10:53 AM edit delete reply
I had a long and agonizing wait until my palate cooled down.

Reminds me of the one Simpsons episode ("El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer") in which Homer eats all the hot peppers :D

Although I doubt Russ is gonna start hallucinating and have visions of space coyotes telling him to find his soulmate XD
