Blind posting from 749 http://xkcd.mscha.org/tmp/cliffmolpy2.gif It's on top of the cliff. What kind of Molpy could it be? Doesn't really look like a Molpysnake, certainly not our friend Molpython.

Lewis Carroll does deserve first credit, after all :wink: (Multi-Ninja'd!) The Walk of CueGan sounds like a goo...

I agree as well. :) And one other observation I might add that I discovered while compiling the prime panels to begin with: it gave me a great appreciation for each frame we got to keep by looking at it that way, and yet also a deep longing for each frame left behind. To me, it in that way kind of ...
