The ramblings of a bearded crazy person

The Whiteboard

Today, I’m talking about The Whiteboard, Alaska’s Coolest Paintball Webcomic!

As is implied by the tagline, it involves paintball. If you’re like me, and you’ve never played paintball, don’t worry. The comic is still great fun. We’ve got a polar bear who loves to build stuff that messes with the fabric of space-time, and also plays paintball. Casually playing with dangerous materials is not uncommon. I mean, they use LOX to light their giant grill made out of a converted tanker truck! Radioactive isotopes are given as presents at Christmastime. And just like on Mythbusters, ‘add more dynamite’ is always a perfectly acceptable course of action.

And in the midst of the comic, is a free recipe for Ma’s Spicy Garlic Meatballs. All outward appearances make it seem like a joke, but me being me, I had to whip up a batch to see how good 10 bulbs of garlic really taste. And the result was actually quite tasty, even though I’m not normally a garlic person. (Though I cheated a little, and only put in two tablespoons of Tabasco instead of four. Next time, I’m gonna try and go all the way.) The only problem I had with them, was that they didn’t hold together very well. They turned from meat balls into meat mush. But that’s not a real big issue. (I was unable to strip off anodizing with my breath though, kinda a bummer…)

The early strips didn’t have a big cohesive story going for them, but later strips have long story arcs spanning a lot of strips. But I always like starting from the beginning regardless, so here it is.

And I’m going to be very generous this week, and give you two FTL strips (because I can’t decide which I like more): The Cake Is A Lie. Rats.
