Reason to Panic

Via one of those reliable English papers:
Aircraft crashes after crocodile on board escapes and sparks panic
A small airliner crashed into a house, killing a British pilot and 19 others after a crocodile smuggled into the aircraft in a sports bag escaped and started a panic.
If the pilots had been equipped with their own crocodiles this disaster could have been averted.

If you are seated beside the gentleman below RUN RUN RUN to Fox News and collect millions.

As it was the Torygraph I'm surprised that the Alligator did not take over the plane and fly it into a packed synagogue while simultaneously disproving global warming.
IT'S A PAPER OF NOTE!!!

Original source for the story currently circulating.

If pilots and crew can't carry their own crocs, then at least there should be a plainclothes Steve Irwin on every flight.

Exactly the same thing happened in a "Dreams of the Rarebit Fiend" strip, which I will scan and post as soon as enough people chip into the "Buy Smut a New Scanner" fund

Smut, do you have the Dover edition? Because I have that and a scanner, and with the page number I could possibly assist you in this important endeavor.

Smut Clyde said...

That would be Page 6. Perhaps you should send Substance a scan for this sadly under-illustrated post.

Gosh, a Winsor McCay archive. I could have some fun with that.

I was thinking of #964 but they're all good.

Re: the image

Did you see the paragraph on Glib & Superficial in Edroso's Monday column?

Here I thought I was being ridiculous.
