    Notice that in order to signify poverty and starvation, Gabby has to wear ragged pants.

    Poor ole Slappy McGee. Cut down in his prime before we got to know him well enough to truly hate his terrible act.

    I’ll confess that I had to read this 3 times before I “got” it. Gabby milks the monkey instead of the cow, which is why the Captain thinks it tastes horrible, right? It just wasn’t at all clear to me what was going on in the third panel… plus the skeletonized fish appearing in both the first and last panels confused me. (also: is “Shum-a-rum-tum” the industry-standard sound-effect for milking a monkey? it should be.)

    Frankly, I’m surprised that the usually unabashed Tony Millionaire shied away from drawing the monkey-milking itself. There’s also the potential for an easy masturbation joke with the phrase “milking the monkey,” but I’m far more concerned by the philosophical questions engendered by a pants-wearing monkey milking a “wild” monkey; it’s like the classic Pluto / Goofy debate, but with added Colonial implications.

      Maakies takes a little work to read.

        that’s one of the things I like about it, actually! though this is the first time I’ve had to put down a strip and come back to it later before I got it — maybe my brain was just running slow this week.

    Let’s get the Maakies critique weekend off with a bang… I liked the monkey titty!

    I think they gave us Monkey Milk in high school, no wonder I was always nauseous. Great comic!
