    Actually a song about getting scrambled eggs for breakfast after a long night of drinking.

    From Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone:

    “He had never seen so many thing he liked to eat on one table: roast beef, roast chicken, pork chops and lamb chops, sausages, bacon and steak, boiled potatoes, roast potatoes, fries, Yorkshire pudding, peas, carrots, gravy, ketchup, and for some strange reason, peppermint humbugs.”

    “Blocks of ice cream in every flavour you could think of, apple pies, treacle tarts, chocolate eclairs and jam doughnuts, trifle, strawberries, Jell-O, rice pudding—“

    From Redwall:

    Tender freshwater shrimp garnished with cream and rose leaves, devilled barley pearls in acorn puree, apple and carrot chews, marinated cabbage stalks steeped in creamed white turnip with nutmeg… crusty country pasties, and these were being served with melted yellow cheese and rough hazelnut bread.

    John Allison sends out periodic email newsletters. I don't think there is anywhere to link to them. Anyway the last one was mostly about his print comics but he threw this in at the end:
    In other news, I've finished all the artwork for STEEPLE, marking the first time I've ever completed a project before a single page was published (issue 1 is out September 21st). And I'm nearly done writing and thumbnailing a batch of webcomics, but I don't know when they'll start running - I toyed with (count them) five different projects before I found one I thought charted some new ground. It's easy to trick yourself into thinking a new idea is a goer until you actual try to make it into a real thing. I think you'll have to wait for my Beatles comic, the Des Fishman wrestling special, Shelley Winters' university stories and a Bobbins.horse yarn about Milan Fashion Week. In some cases, you'll have to wait forever. But project number five felt good and had legs. This one's a keeper. I've made a new website for it and everything.

    Until we meet again,
    John

    Intentionally confusing Amber and Dorothy was perhaps not the most obvious joke

    How far you can throw them?

    Also, was Washington supposed to be a strong guy? He's between Hemsworth and the Quarterback.

    Speaking of XKCD, Randall Munroe was on My Brother, My Brother and Me this week to answer a question about possums (and plug his book, of course):

    Don't worry, they're making all kinds of assumptions about who can and cannot wield Mjölnir.
    I've seen some damned worthy squirrels in my time, okay?

    I don't read Sleepless Domain regularly yet, but didn't the last strip mention something about the 'barrier resetting?'

    I just assumed that the 'barrier' was what kept the monsters away, and that since it was reset, it was safe again
