      This reminds me of the movie “Mr. Baseball” (1992) starring Tom Selleck. Tom played a fading major-leaguer who was unexpectedly traded to Japan (specifically the Tokyo Giants, if I remember correctly). He had a translator who also converted his words into something a bit more…shall we say “diplomatic” when necessary. 😀

        What? Wow, that sounds great! I wonder if it’s on Netflix or Hulu…

    The charity operation Muskets for Daimyos is going to make it really hard for Senhor Bartello to make a sale here.

      UGH, CHARITY! amirite?? How’s a war profiteer supposed to make a buck!

  • Mike

    Wait, just thought of something. Early fire-arms didn’t have a “safety.” They could conceivably go off simply by being dropped. I also notice the gun is pointing off panel, potentially at the messenger…

    • leavescat

      Early fire-arms also didn’t have multiple shots. That gun hasn’t be reloaded, so there’s no possibility that it could go off.

      • Mike

        Oh pft. Details.

        • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

          I was going to steal that idea and write it in but now it’s RUINED with logic!

    • Thiago Kurovski

      Early firearms used black powder and matches. Dropping would only work if it somehow made the match touch the powder…

  • Johannes Hjortshøj

    Insert Boomstick joke here

      Done and done!

      • Mike

        Shouldn’t his other arm have ended in a chainsaw? Just thinking out… well, not out loud, but you know what I mean.

        • KungFuKlobber

          Do you see the end of his other arm? I dont!

          • Mike

            No, but there ought to be smoke comin’ up or something.

          • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

            his right arm is going off the canvas, it’s cut off just before the wrist, so it COULD BE a chainsaw there, maybe! Also, I’m loving the Trogdor avatar!

          • Mike

            I burninate the grammar and logic countryside, it seemed appropriate.

  • Jaibyrd

    Brilliant!

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Magnifico!

  • Red

    Hmmm… This fisherman has potential in the ways of the merchant

  • Da’Zlein

    Drop the black powder tube… This is probably going to end just perfectly…

  • pydsigner

    “TRANSLATED!?”
