I’m Worried About the Beavers

I certainly understand why you might not want beavers on a wooden ark… but what exactly are Noah and Mrs. Noah searching them for?


  1. I don’t know, but if I think of something it’ll probably belong on the Arlo Page.

  2. Could that look more like a Larsen ripoff without including a cow?

  3. Wait !!!! Beavers can’t really talk ???

    I agree with Rammy — I think I sometimes deconstruct comics a little TOO much. It is the incongruity that makes them funny after all.

    Oh — and Noah is searching for forks and knives — finding them would mean that the beavers are planning on a feast. Of course if they bring plastic utensils Noah up the creek with out a paddle.

    Damn — there I go again (beaver — damn — get it ?)

  4. Yes. The wanding is simply symbolic of secondary screening/extra scrutiny. How else he could make the point?

  5. A pelt gun?

    Mrs. Beaver’s sewing machine?

    An ark welder?

  6. Your caption is funnier than the comic. I’m not sure that’s a good thing.

  7. Perhaps the beavers raised suspicions, since they appear to be the only animals without any luggage…

  9. I guess they could be searching for extra teeth… somewhere…

  10. Ohhhhhh now I get it. It about the craziness (an irony) that is security search.

    You have a real reason not to let them on… while at the same time you spend time and energy searching for another “real” reason… also, it could be that the most obvious target gets profiled even though its you who wants to invite them to your “ship”.

    Huh? How am I doing so far? lol

  11. Just be glad he didn’t resort to a poop joke this time

  13. nicole is onto something. The ark is made of wood and beavers eat wood. A punch line for noah might be… shut-up tree hugger!
