I haven't seen them eat and in Frame 1479 Queball said: "We walked along the sea for days and we didn't learn anything. Up here we're learning lots. "
Are they perhaps partially plants and living on photosynthesis?
Are they fueled by a tiny nuclear reactor?

Food seems to be known to them, as Megan told the squirlpy: "It's ok! I won't eat you." in frame 1501.

edit: Woot IR Pope. By papal decree I order you all to be happy for this NewPage. No moping.

We've seen them eat. Most importantly:
- Molpyberries in frame 1363 and up.
- Grapes in frame 1557 and up.
So, they seem to be fruit eaters. (But that might just be because that's all they've found.)

You may notice that I cheated and repurposed previously-drawn Boom De Yada pictures, but this is because I severely need to coma and already spent far too much Time on this thing.

We sure do have a lot of food around here. Hope it's molpy-proofed.

Oh me yarm I'll never eat them vegetables again. I heard people can live on Nutella alone and be fitter, happier, more productive. Not drinking too much.

As they only seem to be associating 'eating' with animals, it's likely they are carnivorous or omnivorous. Maybe molpivorous? Perhaps sometime we will see them hunting animals.

Anyway, thanks for making us happy, beloved Pope!

Whereas the newpix bot jumped the line most recently, cutting off many ardent watchers, hands on the refresh key, creative ONGs thoughtfully prepared, and

Whereas said newpix bot, a creation of a devious mind, has disappointed many (not least of all, the Dean)

The following is proposed:

For blatant, disruptive queue jumping/line cutting at the npx2000 mark, the newpixbot is hereby sentenced to the .2npx slot for the next dozen npx and will then be on probation for the following 4dozen.

All those in favor, please smile.

I smile a lot, although I do not get paid for it. My coworkers get the smiles for free (although they pay for it by distraction caused by my pretty face vomiting caused by my face). Hmm, it seems the strike for a strikethrough doesn't get smaller with the text size. Interresting.

Very nice. Is it your pic? And where is it IRL if you know.

I hope you don't mind me replying in public, others might be interested too.
Not my pic, unfortunately. Just a Google image search on ‘waterfall’, and found one here that was usable for this purpose. So, Auckland, NZ; apparently.


Because we are all about geographical precision here, I just thought I'd confirm that this is Whangarei Falls, ~150km north of Auckland. It's a beautiful spot and if I remember rightly, was the location for a gloriously cheesy shampoo commercial in the 1980s.


But that fall is a single straight drop, and Wow Falls clearly has a shelf part way down. I imagine that Wow Falls is more like this one, but in a drier climate (so with less vegetation). Sorry, no time to matte Cueball and Megan in place of the people looking out from the middle tier.

(SInce people ask, "where is that IRL(heresy)?" I'll say that it's Kaaterskill Falls, near Palenville, New York. (And yes, that one is my picture.)

The source also says that 'M is evidently "mopey".' Given that 'môme' is a French word for 'kid', I'd say the kid who wrote this was a mopey molpy mome.

Also, I have lost track of where I was in the last time waiter, so will wait until it is complete and read the whole thing at once. That way I won't be as lost.

And, with further ado, 50 Ways to Post Your Newpix
dedicated to newpixbot
Spoiler:
The problem is all inside your head
Mscha said to me
The answer is easy if you
Take it logically
I'd like to help you in your struggle
To be free
There must be fifty ways
To post a newpix

Hal9000 said it's really not my habit
To intrude
Furthermore, I hope my meaning
Won't be lost or misconstrued
But I'll repeat myself
At the risk of being crude
There must be fifty ways
To post a newpix
Fifty ways to post a newpix

[CHORUS:]
You Just give it a whirl, blitzgirl
Request a new hat, Strat(player)
You don't try to be noble, Opiboble
Just listen to me
Don't try to risk it, Yappobiscuits
You don't go into ONG fits
Just Sing it in key, AlusioASG
And get yourself free

Charlie_Grumbles said it grieves me so
To see you in such pain
I wish there was something I could do
To make you ONG again
I said I appreciate that
And would you please explain
About the fifty ways

K.bookbinder said why don't we both
Just coma it tonight
And I believe in the newpix
You'll begin to see the light
And then he quoted me
And I realized he probably was right
There must be fifty ways
To post a newpix
Fifty ways to post a newpix

As I have my wedding on Saturday (religious one this time), I work [heresy]today and tomorrow[/heresy], then no more... And the next [heresy]two weeks[/heresy] I will be in honeymoon... That means I will not be able to follow the OTC :( I hope the end is not so near...

And I still have a lot of work to do before I leave, thus I cannot read the OTT...

So enjoy the OTC and the OTT and all the other stuff all of you... And see you in some more newpix! :mrgreen:


Happy second wedding! Enjoy your honeymoon! And try not to sneak away to peek at the OTT - we'll be here when you get back, doing what we always do, waiting. See you in the future!

I am paid by the hour, not by the smile.
I smile a lot, although I do not get paid for it. My coworkers get the smiles for free (although they pay for it by distraction caused by my pretty face vomiting caused by my face). Hmm, it seems the strike for a strikethrough doesn't get smaller with the text size. Interresting.

teehee. Now I have a way of hiding my messages, oh joy! Of course, it's pretty easy to figure out what they say, I mean I figured out 'distraction caused by my pretty face'. But now it will take some effort to read this. So yeah.

Theological question here. What if newpixbot were to at some point gain the pope-ship (assuming of course this hasn't already happened)?

Then he would have gained pope-ship at some point.

dedicated to newpixbot
Spoiler:
The problem is all inside your head
Mscha said to me
The answer is easy if you
Take it logically
I'd like to help you in your struggle
To be free
There must be fifty ways
To post a newpix

Hal9000 said it's really not my habit
To intrude
Furthermore, I hope my meaning
Won't be lost or misconstrued
But I'll repeat myself
At the risk of being crude
There must be fifty ways
To post a newpix
Fifty ways to post a newpix

[CHORUS:]
You Just give it a whirl, blitzgirl
Request a new hat, Strat(player)
You don't try to be noble, Opiboble
Just listen to me
Don't try to risk it, Yappobiscuits
You don't go into ONG fits
Just Sing it in key, AlusioASG
And get yourself free

Charlie_Grumbles said it grieves me so
To see you in such pain
I wish there was something I could do
To make you ONG again
I said I appreciate that
And would you please explain
About the fifty ways

K.bookbinder said why don't we both
Just coma it tonight
And I believe in the newpix
You'll begin to see the light
And then he quoted me
And I realized he probably was right
There must be fifty ways
To post a newpix

The current pope should issue a decree that a pope has to be human, just like the roman one has to be male. Just in case.

You don't want to know. Better pray to the GLR that that doesn't happen.
(Or stay up 24 pix a dix to ensure that newpixbot doesn't get a chance to post..)
