It would seem that Bunz & Katz are starting off Chapter 3 – “Eating Greenland,” with a Bang!
In case you don’t Grok Bunz’ fish reference – recall Bubba Bass, the Saucer’s wayward Nav-Computer and in-flight entertainment… (“Entertainment” used advisably) Imagine a week spent pent up in the saucer’s small cabin with a singing fish… Is it any wonder that Bunz can be a bit peevish??
Uh… well, it appears that B&K have made a long-delayed beginning in their Ultimate Plan of Devious Stoopidity to destroy Dirt… even if their Negafleet Scout HQ (Temp.) Mk. 5 was a dumpster surrounded by abandoned industrial buildings, and they were only assigned to scout the planet in advance of the great Negafleet Invasion (deferred indefinitely due to parts on back-order), at least they’re trying… very…
Derr – Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam, Lovely Spam! Wonderful Spam! I get, but Jerry Cans?
“Jerry-can” was GI slang for the handy, portable fuel cans used by the Germans (Jerries), and later copied by the Allies and everyone else.
Yup… “Jerry” was First World War British slang for Germans – the Einheitskanister or JerryCan was designed in the 30s and adopted by the Wehrmacht as their standard Petrol or water or other liquids type can… Holding 20 litres (4.4 imp gal; 5.3 US gal) They were made out of stamped steel, And unlike the Flimsy British 4 gallon petrol can (which often leaked at the seams) could be stacked without the weight crushing the bottom cans… During the fighting in North Africa the advantage of JerryCans became apparent and some special services like the Long Range Desert Group and later the SAS, used them to carry fuel and water on their long forays across the desert behind Axis lines… Eventually the Brits, USA and even the Soviets began manufacturing Jerrycans and they are still in use today, though some now are made from plastic…
Seems that even belligerent Aliens like Bunz & Katz recognize the utility of Jerrycans – However, best not to use around Exploding Spam…
Kerosene for scrubbing off the smell from the sock bomb.
I like her Doc Savage Trousers. Aproriate for an adventure in the north. If the fish can get them there.
Jodhpurs, leather vest and boots, seems that Bunz is better outfitted for a Rider Haggard adventure than an Arctic expedition…
Is it a sign of the times that in spite of knowing the Jerry Can backstory, I STILL thought of Rick and Morty first?
Did they get their bomb disposal advice from the LAPD?
I think maybe they learned how from Boris Badenov…
We have made the big time now! Just look!
Boris, this isn’t the big time! This is the BIG HOUSE!
Please remember to dispose of your expired spam carefully, people. Or, and this is a wonderful idea, save it for the Fourth of July!
