Exclamation point!

Editing this strip made me feel hollow inside, like a piece of my soul was missing. Then I remembered I hadn't eaten in, like, six hours.

2006 me must have had some brass bouncing balls, because this isn't a finished product by any stretch of the imagination. I also don't recall trying to push off somebody else's scripts as my own - I remember putting together strips using other people's scripts as a means of getting a feel for the editing program, but if this strip is to be believed I must've had some serious cojones in 2006 and I'm honestly better off without that attitude.

SFX: KAPOW!

The Xenomorph has ran Bodhi over, in spite of no implication of movement in its body language.

BODHI: Oof!

XENOMORPH: WOOF!

SOTHOS: The show's started already? Dang, that was quick. Hey, Kids! I'm Sothos. I'm like Toy Story. I'm just not a toy. Well, this is our show. It took a while, a lot of insults, and a TON of criticism, but we've finally gotten the final product up and running. The previous version of this comic had a copyed script...

BODHI: Well, let's just hope we can post this somewhere without the need for our own website.

SOTHOS: Say, Bodhi, I can't remember.... Why did we have to change the script?

BODHI: Because the Mods at the site we were trying to be posted on kept telling us to read the rules. We CAN'T copy scripts.

EX POST FACTO NARRATION: THIS SPACE IS BIG. REALLY REALLY BIG. YOU JUST WON'T BELIEVE HOW VASTLY HUGELY MINDBOGGLINGLY BIG IT IS. I MEAN YOU MAY THINK IT'S A LONG WAY DOWN THE ROAD TO THE (Narration cuts off)
