Thanks! I was worried people might not get the song reference, without actual singing or music to spell it out for them. Musical sequences in webcomics: bad idea or good?

I can't tell you who sings it, the tune, the genre, or anything, but I know the words so what does that tell you.

I would say best used sparingly? Or once per webcomic, maybe. Don't overdo it or you get overconfident in what people will recognize.

Yeah I think this is old enough to be embedded in people's social consciousness even if - like you say - they can't really place anything about it. I guess for that reason it works specifically for the earworm purpose it serves here. BUT I'm not going to make a habit of assuming people will get some pop reference from 20-odd years ago

Pop cultural osmosis aside, it's really the end that makes this comic for me.

What is in the crystal sphere powering the alien mind editing device? I hope it is a block of spiced ham.

Wait.. is she eating... a salad? Has this spam beam drained away the dietary habits we once knew and loved?

It's either an eraser (to erase her memory), or a brick (to make her dumb as a brick).

I added some text to the eraser so it's more clear that it's an eraser!

Yeah, but now I'm freaking out because I can't read what's on the eraser! It's too small and cursive! Unless it says, "Fish Pal", but if that's the case, what the hell does that mean?

So is this Wonderella based on a true story, Justin?

Sort of! I was driving when I thought of it, but couldn't say where I was going or coming from.

I love that leprechaun and want to know his mysterious backstory.

Suffice to say that the original mascot for an undisclosed breakfast cereal turned states evidence against an organization of great interest to the FBI.


Granted, that has nothing to do with this little bastard, but I felt it was worth noting.

See, this is why Wonderella needs a twitter account.

Oh, wait...

Justin this week's comic is excellent and more than makes up for the Wonderella/ Dr Shark rule34 I unfortunately saw this week.
