Hey, look! This thing is back!

This episode includes raking with Mr. Pickles! Caveman commentary! Nuts to you! Shopping with kids!  Also, headphone feedback near the beginning of the episode makes The Howling Monkey sound ridiculous, and possibly drunk.  We are advised he was not drinking, but remains ridiculous nonetheless!

All that and more on this episode of the Howling Monkey Reads The Comics!

Earlier this week U.S. Rep Steve Cohen of Memphis suggested that White House security issues might be improved by digging a moat. He later claimed that he didn't mean a moat exactly, but some moat-like water barrier inhibiting access to the White Castle. It could be beautiful, he said.

Since this important story first broke, the Fly-Team has been working day and night, and has since turned up an extensive list of ideas Cohen was considering before going with "moat."


1. Smaug the Magnificent.

2. White House Secret Service detail to be replaced with D.C. chapter of Society for Creative Anachronism members.

3. Catapult drones

4. Epic recitations by national coffee house poetry champion, Rhayne.

5. All visitors to White House must answer three questions posed by a guardian on a bridge. Failure to do so shall cause them to be hurled into abyss.

15. Discourage napping and XBox playing by Secret Service agents on duty.
