#80: Hoover Dam(ned)

Such a happy, smiley face must surelyΒ mask the presence of a dark, Satanic malevolence under the surface.

            I’m aware of Mafalda but never found decent English translations – my French is that that good πŸ™‚

              In Asterix My favorites were 2 centurions based in England called “Sendervictorious” & “Appianglorious”… I guess that would be the product of the translators rather than the original authors?

                For some odd reason I remember one of the translators was Anthea Bell. I seem to recall reading on the intertubes once that the translators credited garnered quite a following amongst Asterix fans in the UK πŸ™‚

                I seem to remember one pun that, although I forget the context, had an overt aviation theme – and two lines were “These Romans are plane crazy” and “I, for once, am in concorde with the Romans.”

    Hopefully it won’t develop a taste for the flesh of the living… But really, with a smile like that it is inevitable. I recommend using fire.

          Burning, churning death and destruction only makes him more pissed off.
          Don’t make him angry. You won’t like him when he is angry.

    for all the non-English out there a “Hoover” is the generic name for a vacuum in England, same as a “Kleenex” is generic for a tissue. I had to google Henry Hoover I didn’t realize they really DO have faces like that! I also discovered some guy was caught having sex with Henry… glad THAT didn’t make it into the strip. So yes “Hoover Dam” makes sense probably to Limeys and crossovers like me! PS once again absolutely brilliant Mart holding his glasses up like a periscope…the eyeball/glasses thing is almost becoming it’s own character!!

    we have had a henry at francs for the past 17 years and he is still going.
    i love anthropomorphizeation (not sure i spelt that right!)

    Ahh Foxx! Word play is such a delight when it’s done right! Did you know that All hoover vacuums are demonic? That’s why they work so well… It’s a front to cover up their evil plotting against us!

    • Posted January 25, 2010 at 8:14 pm | Permalink | Reply

      True. That’s why you should never combine them with the other great evil tool of Satan: bananas. If you should ever suck up a banana in a hoover…well, then you are just fucked.

        I refer again to the Polish guy with his banana in the hoover..it all comes back to sex. By the way I have my music on shuffle here at work and I am listening to Dogsounds’ Ill-tempered Synthesizer track 1

          pssh, you should probably forego that for some kick ass Kokoarrah goodness. I’m listening to my cover of Jarre’s “magnetic Fields pt. 1” and wishing I could share it without getting my ass kicked by Polydor for breach of copyright. But I fear I would be dragged away faster than a sweaty man at a kiddies’ playpark .

              BTW in the car on random I had Kokoarrah Dawn on the way in to work….unfortunately grey & rainy so not as majestic but probably more like the Lakes!

    On a new side note… where DO they sell pants with holes in the back for one’s tail/brush? You’d think it would be a zipper at the back to acommodate various sizes… then again a furry tail and a zip sound too eye-wateringly dangerous. Maybe it is the first time the world has foxx’s rear end so it never occured to me before

    • Posted January 25, 2010 at 10:32 pm | Permalink | Reply

      I like that my rear end inspires such deep navel gazing.

      That sentence is kinda a trainwreck on many levels.

      And pants with holes for tails? I have the sneaking suspicion a big chunk of my followers on my The Facebooks are probably fursuiters and could tell you just that.

        One would hope the tail is part OF the suit and not the suitee????

  9. Posted January 26, 2010 at 12:19 am | Permalink | Reply

    I have no idea, but I would suspect they can be either part of the pants OR the fursuit underneath. Trust me, I just DRAW furry art, nothing more πŸ™‚

    foxx did you know american girls love british acsintes (srry i can’t spell it) idk y but they just love it when some one talks with a british acsinte (still can’t spell it).

      lol – accents πŸ™‚

      Sure, my brother lives over in the States and found that out when he moved there, so I have known that for some time. I’m sure he has some amusing tales to tell!

      I am fully prepared to be surrounded by a gaggle of babes at all times if I ever come over πŸ™‚

        oh yeah, I hardly get a moment’s rest with all the babes knocking on my door…… In REAL life the babes love an English accent when it comes out of the mouth of a hunky English Actor in a movie….when it comes out of the mouth of a “regular” person (still hunky of course but remember I AM related to Foxx so that should tell you something…) then it doesn’t induce the same panty-throwing hysterics I’m afraid. It also works the other way, I talked on the phone to a hot Southern-Belle voice and she ended up being a 300lb Sumo wrestler-looking woman…so even the accent didn’t help!

    rofl, I’m ever so slightly wary of my own Henry Hoover now >.>

    I like the detachable eyes that Mart seems to have, pretty decent glasses if they can do that

      Remember, Mart has command of the MYSTICAL POWERS of SCIENCE! at his disposal.

        Marts Glasses > Dilbert’s tie
        Actually there is no comparison they are WAY better. This and the Xmas card are both classic optical humour. I will be SO disappointed if he can’t do that in real life this summer.

                You broke my BRANE again. It can never not be said that I do not never understand nothing that you never say at any time, not nor nothing neither. I think.

                The followig sentence is true. The previous sentence is a lie.

    I just now pondered this question. Why would a Hoover say shitbiscuit? There’s got to be a thousand and one other things he could say. Just a really random thought Lol

      ah yes but remember this is no ordinary hoover, the Foxx family hoover has had to suck up a LOT of naughty words over the years. That was probably the last phrase it sucked up, therefore the first one out. Probably came from the last time Foxx had to vacuum back in 2006

    • Posted February 1, 2010 at 8:03 pm | Permalink | Reply

      Just though “shitbiscuit” was more amusing than a proper swear word. I have realised that the character of Henry is going to be a continuing challenge as I wil have to keep making stuff up for him to say. Darn.
