    OK son, you’re the first in our family to go off to college. Do us proud.

    We have either caught the formation of proto-TINGs on TRIAD, something on the planet suppresses full TING formation, the artist can’t draw TINGs. .

    (Version for UK residents the right age) Ten years earlier, aged, twelve, the artist had vivid dreams after watching Su Ingle on ‘Wildtrack’.

    See no evil? Unfortunately not.

    Namely, fur lice.

    Looks like Jim Burns had run out of cheap felt tip pens midway and forget to colour the boots,unless the planet sucks the colour out of you from the ground up ?
    btw – are not all planets distant ?

  8. Ray P Says:

    I met Jim once. A little frazzled from drink. But then so was I.

    This is what happens when the chaperone isn’t around.

    That is some fascinating font Ting!

  11. Anna T. Says:

    She seems strangely unperturbed by the attentions of the albino monkey-men.

  12. Tag Wizard Says:

    I thought I just had font problems. Didn’t notice I had FonTing!

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    A glorious new tag: FonTing! Now we must troll through the archives looking for other examples. There must be a few.

    If she’s joining them in lice-picking, won’t that make them a Quad something?

    Nobody but baton twirlers wears tall white boots; certainly nobody walking around on unknown ground. Are the ape-things replacing her uniform bit by bit — first boots, then belt — while chanting “one of us!” She’ll end up all white like everything else on the planet.

    Unless, if the title coloration is to be believed, she’s joined by a chap in red… which would make the whole set-up a Pentad… ugh.

    Too confusing to think about on a holiday.

  14. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    I think that the secret is that they are all living on top of a giant grey monkey…who lives on top of another giant-er grey monkey…

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    And there’s tiny gray monkeys that they’re picking out of each other’s fur?

    It’s monkeys all the way down!

    This reminds me. I should update my wardrobe.

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Huh. Just noticed this has the one and only “monkeybutt” tag.

    There had to have been more monkeybutts in previous years of GSS.
