    Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground!

    As I type from my office cubicle…

    Nineh is Not Nice.

    Panel 3 is one of those scenes that looks funny at first glance, but becomes creepier when considered more carefully.

    Is building security really so lax that people can not only sneak in, but do whatever the hell they like to the workers for their own jollies? Is Nineh near to being nicked?

    Kemet comes close to being crushed, concussed, or killed.

    Why am I alliterating?

    Why am I suddenly thinking of the Gashlycrumb Tinies?

    But she is sooo kyooot! With her “sneaked” and all!

    This is why they tell us – no tailgating through the security doors! I’ll be watching my pants carefully. But if I saw Nineh down there, I think I’d soon feel happy to see her, but after that, maybe not so much.

    Yeah, those worker zombies are pretty lost in their work.

    Careful where you wander while you wonder, Owlmirror. I don’t want you to meet a Gorey death.

    Drat, I missed my chance. I could have put in “watch” instead of “careful”.

    …And of course, I forgot Hauhet. Bah.

    Nightjar is just going to have to live with dying uncommemorated.
