31 degrees today!  I did a 10k Father’s Day run this morning, super humid already at 8 am.  Not my best time, but still under an hour, and I walked part of it as my running partner’s hip was going…and then I negated all that effort by eating too much at dinner.  Go me!

Vote Incentive: cookie, because.

And Happy belated Father’s Day to all applicable persons!  Hope yours was better than Batman’s…

    How pleasantly foreshadowing.

    Jeez, the monkey is about a torture palace.

    Okay pretty obvious that tanked probably won’t last unless he thinks this to himself “All this is happening for a reason” - Seedot, 2010

    This feels very Toy Story 3 suddenly.

    They all had names except for the chameleon? The monkey looks super cute in the last panel. I hope we find out his name.

    Well now you have to tell us what happened to the chameleon.

    That poor chameleon!

    @Vausch–that reminds me of an old Looney Tunes short called Unnatural History. A chameleon freaks out when he goes near a plaid colored square to change color. “I can’t do it! I can’t do it! Waah! I just can’t do it!”

    I keep reminding myself this is the DISCOUNT zoo, but who in their right mind would allow kids to pet a rattle snake , let alone involve a demented skunk, and a bear?? I mean, the bird, the bunny and monkey I could see- but seriously?? and I know they tranq him, and yes, tanked probably *would* get along with the kids but… there isn’t enough alcohol in the world for him to tolerate them for very long…

    This has “trouble for main character” written over it in about a dozen different languages. Also, why is it that most of the animals are so dickish? No offense (since the Bears aren’t always wholesome), but these guys take it way too far!

    @Todd Maccarone - I don’t get the “dickish” feel at all. Rather most of them seem fatalistic, except the monkey and the parrot who are sarcastic, which is kind of expected from a parrot. Monkey boy however seems to care about his fellow victims, and too him Tanked is the new kid who probably can survive at least one trip to the madhouse. Meanwhile Stinky, Floppsy, Scales and the chameleon is about to break just knowing where they are going, so to him Tanked is an opportunity. If the kids go after the shiny new toy, that’s Tanked by the way, then his friends might survive another day.

    i know what they did to the chameleon, they showed him a picture of Boy George in the 80s and then showed him how he looks now

    I have to agree; even for a discount zoo, wouldn’t it be safer AND cheaper to be using the standard petting zoo animals? Goats, bunnies, chickens, a baby cow or something? Standard farm critters, probably super easy/cheap to get.
    I mean, we all know this is somehow going to end in Tanked freaking out because he’s sober and probably mauling someone, or scaring someone enough to end his mobile zoo escapades after only a few trips, and let’s face it; even if he was drunk and docile like he’s supposed to be; he’s a BEAR.

    Also, I do actually feel sorry for the monkey and his friends. He’s just a dick about the way he wants to go about helping said friends.
