This was a fun strip both because it was interesting trying to describe such a simple task (“whistling” is the classic simple action which is so very hard to describe), and also because Dee’s results are such an easy result to have happen.

I’ve even eaten candy which tasted verrrry funny. Blame the sweet tooth. It’s much nicer than blaming the sanity.
