You know i'm just not even sure what to think of this. Not this article in general just the whole thing. I believe the phrase goes "What the effing eff."

Yeah I think that's a good part of the intention. I'm still not sure myself what to make of these strips, but regardless I click every week for some mindfuckery. Thanks, Nick, I guess?!

What's odd is that I've never noticed this series before... interesting.

...and the streets shall run with giblets and gravy.

that pun is as delicious (and fattening) as the comic itself.

And may you survive the holiday too! :D

Us crazy Canadians already did our part last month, so I propose we officially turn it into a "Who will bring the dark god back first" contest.

"Klaatu Barada Nick'sSo...odd". If Ghost House Pictures turns this into a Fall blockbuster, Bruce should get another cameo.

So every time I read one of these comics, I have to go do research. I didn't know the "Fhtagn" means "sleeps/dreams/waits". I got the Lovecraft Cthulhu imagery right away, but had never heard that "slogan", It would seem I have been living under a rock. That being said, help me out here a little, Nick...

How does seasonal ritual sacrifice of real meat turkeys made of meat hasten in the return of a collosal (I'm assuming due to lack of scale) cosmic turkey-shaped tofu god made of tofu? Beans and turkeys are neither friends nor enemies to my knowledge.

The pilgrims fled to the new world to escape religious prosecution. Looks like they had no idea WTF they were getting into. Nice photoshop lens flare, by the way. Looks like you needed a touch more than the traditional coloring utensils of the pilgrims to convery the full majesty cosmic of a space turkey!

Lens flare! Thank you for noticing. It never fails to amuse me.

The origin of the word tofurky is shrouded in mystery.
I dare not say more on the subject in a public forum.
Your point of view is too English-centric.
The language of the priests can't be properly gobbled with human tongues.
For a deeper answer, may I suggest a fugue state that might attract visitations?
Your quest for knowledge should not go unrewarded.

This series is so disconnected yet semi-meta and quirky and creepy... Its a combination of the creepyness of Tim Burton when he's allowed to go batshit crazy, mixed with well... Lovecraft as we see here... and maybe some Edward Gorey too... I dunno, there's a huge thing here I just can't explain (hence the word "thing") but I love it. I'd even pay for this art to hang on my wall...
Anyway, kudos to the artist for some awesomeness... now if the gallery of the day guy could learn how to put meat into his posts....

Really? I always thought it was a stereotypical tendency towards politeness that made Canadians thankful first.

You had to know that there was a dark reason for our insufferable politeness! >:D

This comic, Tim Burton on acid. You deserve a reward simply for your confusing use of language and sheer oddness.

Not that is goes unaprecciated.

Clankenbeard, Nick. Be careful.

<_< There are things about poultry that man was not meant to know.....

Oh, what am I doing?!

It's only human nature to look at something when someone else tells you not to, and gives only a vague warning why not to!

For example;

In the pre-heated oven of Suburb'ia, moist Turkthulu lies baking....

As I stood on the twisted shore of a foreign land the clouds loomed; building and holding ominously down on my fraying nerves. The smell of roast potatoes and garlic hung in the air biting at my senses and clouding my judgment as I trundled forward toward the sea of gravy, dotted with the occasional mint pea, I happened upon a dark monolith (Which also happens to be a thing that a person trying to imitate Lovecraft puts in when they can't think of something)

I gazed up in crippling agony my mind drifted into madness. Sitting atop its twisted throne loomed the dark figure of the lord turkey, Tryptophanicon.

I did what any reasonable man would do and went utterly insane.

"Puthulu raglan turkey mana mena."

So, the pardoning of turkey is supposed to slow the end down by a tiny bit, then?
Also, who knew they were cannibals?
