Go on and click through, for comics fun.

this reminds me of this scene in one of the Aubrey-Maturin books where Jack is walking along a path in the countryside without Stephen and he comes across two tortoises doin’ it and he is surprised by it and says “good lord!” and then sighs and says “oh, how I wish Stephen were here!”
