If Tina incorporates does that make he a subchapter-D corp?

The NLRB cannot touch Tina. No employees its a family owned business.

It figures the tentacle would be the one running the cash register. Does it go by the nickname fingers?

All punnery aside (stop the punnery.. The punvault© Is overflowing and the pressure-release-valves have it spilling in another universe by now :P ), why is Tentacle so freaked-out?

She handles the "cash-register". Hmm. Does that mean, being the finance-one, always calculating, she's aware there will be "costs" ( figuratively speaking) connected to Bia's visit, "costs" that will be dire?

Today reminder me of this strip.http://wapsisquare.com/comic/at-the-end-of-th/
This and the next are Tina's coven and the pizza delivery. Strangely the tentacle is not there. lol. They must change form as it suits them I guess. This is a good showing of the group.

Have we every been given a clue as to how many demons are in Tina's coven?

This one, and the next few, kind of fill in some of the most recent questions, and let us gain context on current events...

I believe we settled on 7 after de-Nudging. (If I remember correctly).

It would make sense in the framework of the Wapsi-mythology. Just check this link: http://numerology-thenumbersandtheirmea ... ber-7.html

Quote from link: "7 is a ‘magical’ number. The number of the occultist and the esoteric. 7’s are secretive, mysterious, stand-offish, intuitive and introspective."

And this: The 7 energy has very strong psychic tendencies and are natural healers, with a core of inner-strength. They are known to be quick-witted, sometimes with a dry sense of humour.
Number 7 is considered a masculine energy as well as an introvert. The related planet is Mercury and it is related to the star sign Libra. The associated Tarot card is the Chariot.
The 7 vibration represents rest, contemplation, spirituality, sensitivity, sympathy and mastery.


I'd say the last quote fits Tina to a pinch.

...um. So, when I read Tentacles' line, in my head it sounded like Rarity. Excuse me while I settle in my usual CC spot with a big bowl of Surreal. :shock:

I suspected her inner demons each had a specific skill.
Has that been mentioned previously?

It may be this particular member doesn't approve
of the reorganization because it will lose some of
its privileges/prestige.

Interesting turn of phrase, there: "We're ready to go - I need to meet Becky."

If they had a skill it would be in line with their nature. Running the register and a tentacle suggest avarice or hunger. The yummy pastries would be excess maybe, or sweet tooth. We know they are demons but which demons. We see many guesses but no confirmation. It would be a mixture of them as well so you would get a well rounded individual. I suspect there are more demons there than we think. What we mostly see are the more vocal ones, probably as encouraged by Nudge before she left.

I think it reacted in fear. So where they woke up it bolted. Isn't that a thought. Instead of bolting your food, your food bolts. So it is hiding in the tub. From the way it looks and moves all it is is a tentacle. I don't think it has any more body that that.

It's certainly different than Monica's demons... They all take a (vaguely, at least) humanoid form. Perhaps the loss of Tina1.0's soul made Tina's demons lose their humanoid forms. Or maybe, after living without Tina1.0 for years, they've slowly degraded into these beastly forms.
