Panel 1: Okay, that's a bit silly: a toy does not mend a broken arm. But at least Deanna's smiling at the idea, not gasping, "Mom! We're trying to raise our kids to be martyrs!"
Panel 2: Okay, in this case, the sound f/x are actually funny. "Klak! Fwap! Bop! Rumble rumble rumble...BEEP BEEP BEEP!" Did it bounce right off Deanna's foot at one point? And I love Merrie saying, "SHRIEK!!"
But, uh...you don't think this is going to upset the Seaweeds, do you?
Panels 3-4: Well, I'm not sure how the word "supernatural" relates to the inevitable "BAM! BAM! BAM!" But Mira looks terrified, as if she thinks she's being summoned by the Dark Overlord Cthulu. Deanna looks like she's going to fall down, and it would appear that the BAMming has opened up a hole in the floor that the new toy is going to fall into.
In other news, I got another message from LiveJournal TOS, telling me that "We note that you have not in fact deleted the LiveJournal entry in question. If the entry is not deleted in full before May 28, 2005, we will still be required to take action against your account at that time." I responded that I had deleted the post; I don't know what they mean by "in full". LiveJournal people, if you're reading this, please let me know what I have to do to cooperate fully and I'll do it.
ETA: Well, I heard back from Lynn's people, and they're happy. And I've deleted the entire thread that had the offending post, so that should take care of LiveJournal.
