  1. I’m having flashbacks to my grandfather’s stories about getting out of northern Ireland in the ’20s. Just horrible, horrible things, but the story’s told with a smile because of the one ridiculous thing that happens at the end.

    1. Of mine too, it’s amazing. I was wondering if it counts as bragging. :P
      Thank god people like Moze do exist, they make life infinitely better.

  2. Frickin Mose…gotta love a guy with THAT much damn sunshine in him…he actually reminds me of someone…and that IS a good thing.

  3. Oh damn! I love Mose! He is by far my favourite character in a cast that is captivating and diverse and brilliantly funny. He rolls through life like a happy, hungry, horny deity and I love him for it.

      1. I think the word you’re looking for is “Bacchus” or possible “Dionysus.” If Moze had a holiday, it would involve belts being banned by the government because they were an impediment to random orgies.

    1. That exactly what I think about every time I see him. I smile ’cause I enjoy him, then shiver from that image. Makes me want to know what that would look like o.O;

  4. Cripes, Mose!

    My initial reaction was “…Wat?”, then I laughed at Tuesday’s reaction. I love how he’s just so casual about all this.

  5. And now I have just coughed awkwardly and burst into hysterical laughter. I can’t even go “*GASP*” about Moze cheating on his wife because at this point, messed-up is par for the course.
    Personally, I am holding out a little bitty hope that his “wife” is a buttplug. His logic for this will be that she died, then she got reincarnated. As a buttplug. Because really, that is a choice family story that would be shared down many generations of oddly hairy grandchildren.

    …Yeah, I’m going to go get some of that nice sleep stuff now.

  6. I’m thinking the wife be dead – would make sense since they apparently walked into a mausoleum. Or else it’s one of the cousins he referred to earlier on; someone his family would want him to marry to produce proper Nile children.

  7. For most of this strip I was thinking “Come on Tuesday, it’s not worth getting uppity about, quit freaking.”
    Then Moze drops the wife bomb.
    I can’t wait to see where this is going!

  8. Ok, I’ll be the first to say I want to hear the story of Shep in a dress, I ain’t proud. (Though yeah, Tuesday’s last face is hilarious too.)

    1. at least Shep is not bound by the Abrahamic books, which condemn men who use dresses. I guess Moze is smiling because the many awkward things that happened to uncle Shep during his Journey to America….

  9. HA HA HA! I see that “SEE” his wife not “MEET” his wife. I’m really hoping it’s a mummy, because I want to see how much further we can tweak poor Tuesday. XD

  10. I wonder if Tuesday will ever realize that she may think she is a provocative philosopher but she is really Privilege Girl. Mose might force her to realize it simply by existing. Or he might decide, “What the hell, I’ve never tried this before–let’s try giving her the Privilege 101 spiel.”

  11. Moze doesn’t really surprise me much in this chapter, but now Tuesday is starting to baffle me. What ever happened to the Tuesday who could go to bloodsport venues and walk out early because she was bored? What happened to the Tuesday who danced naked on the internet like it was nothing at all; the one who dismissed everyone who disagreed with her with nothing but a sardonic word or two? Perhaps Curio isn’t really the phony one after all…

  12. Lovable, easy-going, mellow oaf, or sly joker with the ability to still be tickled by the way he shocks people?

    I like to think it’s ‘both’.

  13. I definitely believe that Moze loves it when people are all rattled up. And that’s what he loves about Shep and Sunny’s company. Coming from a person who tends to keep a level head and who typically doesn’t care when everything goes to hell… a little part of me can’t help but revel in the anarchy that ensues when other people are making a huge deal about things that I find trivial. Such as money, relationships, possessions and beliefs.
    But in my case it comes off as a lot less charming than Moze somehow manages.

  14. Given Moze’s propensity for music-related ephemera, I presume “We Hunt Kings” is a band of some sort. And I really, really wish I was musical so I could start a band called “We Hunt Kings.”
