121: Ninja's entrance

Whoa, whoa, whoa, are we still doing a Final Fantasy spoof? 'cause we just drifted into Metal Gear Solid now.

"Just racoons in the vent"?! Clearly, Sir, you have never heard of ROCKET Racoon!

Poor Rad.
Will anyone ever categorize his species correctly?

That Discworld reference. :)
At least I'd like to think it was a deliberate reference to Rincewind.

Well, that's the first time in a few strips I laughed out loud. To be honest this is starting to drag out a bit so a few more laughs here and there will help.

Rad's error here was that the wind can actually be VERY loud. However, his success comes from people deciding most often to ignore the wind, even when they hear it (hence the phrase "it's just the wind").

Thus, the little red panda has won again. ;D

<.< For now.....

Reminds me of the Mythbusters episode where they were testing out sneaking in through the vents, it wasn't any quieter there either.

Oh random bad guy guard dude. If you only knew how right you are...

Or, well, close enough.

"Why, Thor: the God of Thunder is trying to enter my building!"

In video games/movies:

*silence*

In real life:

CLANG! BANG! BANG! "ow!" BANG!

You forgot the Bruce Willis variant, in which you somehow can manage sardonic quips out loud while inside the echo-generating confines of an air vent, and nobody hears you.

"What if it's a wizard raccoon this time?"
"Oh, come on! What are the odds of that happening again?"

I was thinking of that too. I always remember Adam cracking up over the loud crashing of Jamie trying to climb around a duct using magnets. "Thor, the God of Thunder, is trying to enter my building!"

Nice. "Just raccoons in the vents" really had me laughing, and I was already giggling from the second panel.

dat stinger doe

Probably the best joke of this arc. xD

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE RATS FELLOW GUARDS

Or other animals in the ventilation. Not a risk worth taking.

Should have used a cardboard box... But, that's just me...

Other than that, that base must not be up to code if they [still] have a "raccoon" problem in the vents...
