Yanno how some people have Angels/Devils for a conscience? I have a Dark Elf ShadowKnight and a Half Elf Ranger for mine. The really bad part is when they agree on something.

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?
Yeah, it sounds more like Tentacle has decided to "go Galt".

She'll probably be yelling about how her taxes go to fund takers like the MIB as they drag her back to civilization before some RCC exorcists can catch up to her.

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?
Or she could have been the demon in charge of Tina's fear or panic or worry or somesuch. The demons do often seem to exhibit the trait that they are in charge of, whether it be Monica's demon of Panic panicking or Georgette's Anger being quite angry.
Fairportfan wrote:Interesting turn of phrase, there: "We're ready to go - I need to meet Becky."
The odd grammar of being a composite entity, I suppose. Each individual member is ready to go, but they have to appear as one unified entity in front of Becky.
GlytchMeister wrote: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.
Well, if the demons take on a form that most represents their host's symbolic visualisation of whatever trait they represent, then either not having Tina's soul around anymore let these ones have more of a free hand (or tentacle or claw or whatever) at their shapes, or else human Tina had a much different symbology of things than Monica has.

Klein pretzels are worse i always like to lick the salt off the outside of the pretzel, but it's on the inside!

Those are very dangerous. If you get a gas buildup it implodes.

Drops a quantum gravity well into the pun jar. That should create some extra room in there.
Ambush questions are fun. Watching the mental impact of them as they distort, or crumble, opinions based on faulty logic.

And now I want to make Escher rolls IRL, just because. I'm thinking it will look like a square bagel with stairsteps on the tops. That would be the easiest 3-D way to simulate an Escher print.

EDIT: And while I was looking up exactly which Escher print would work best as a baked good (no pun intended) I saw where someone had made a 3-D model of an Escher print with Lego, complete with endless staircase.

When I was working as a baker, I made Möbius pastries and also a cake based on this. I can't find any pictures of it in my files. . .maybe the other guy I worked with has some. . .

I'm diabetic, so I know to be cautious about certain sweeteners. Sorbitol, Maltitol, anything that ends with -itol. When reading ingredient listings on sugar-free treats, look for the warning about "Excessive Consumption." In fact, Sorbitol is usually the culprit in the "Fart Candy" sold as a practical joke item.
