Below is an excerpt from a short story I wrote a few years ago. Abe and Preston would have completed the picture…

“Eight batteries for a dollar. Eight of ‘em for a dollar. Eight batteries, one dollar. Dollar gets you eight. It’s a special. Eight batteries for a dollar. Eight of ‘em for a dollar. Is that a good book miss? That’s an awfully pretty dress. Ha ha. Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

“Eight batteries for a dollar. Eight of ‘em for a dollar. Eight batteries for a dollar. Eight for a dollar. Dollar gets you eight. Whole box? Fif-teen Gs!”

Always hoping for that awesome conflux of Morlock scrappers. Battery Guy goes full-contact on M&M Salesman. Then they team up in the colliding iron cage death match against Blind Accordion Guy and the “United Homeless Organization” spokesman who yells at 135 decibels in an enclosed space to be heard over all other sounds on a moving subway car. M&Ms sprayed pell-mell in tag team dirty fighting for Battery Guy, who trips up the UHO screamer even as his own partner’s ears start to bleed.

i personally loved the batterypark reference.
and i was always suspicious of those batteires that didnt even weight as much as the four quarters you used to pay for them.

“Where the Wild Things Are….SHITTING BATTERIES”
i KNEW they changed the title somewhere along the way, just like they do with ALL the good stories…
like when the hunter was supposed to cut out snow whites heart…
now a days …
those stories wouldnt be VIOLENT ENOUGH for todays kids…

Thank goodness the troll doesn’t have to shit out car batteries…! Or does he…? :shock:

Very good today! :lol: (But, when isn’t the comic very good/great? ) I especially liked when Abe’s eyes were sandwiches…! :lol:

Ha, great stuff. I wish the EL had that shopping option when I rode. The homeless here in Chicago don’t waste the money getting on the train, they get me when I get off and am late for class. I even passed up a great deal on batteries due to my tardiness, and I really need some. I lost my recharables and my camera eats them like I eat beef short ribs.

Dammit, I was gonna say that. This sort of thing also happens in London. The only thing missing is the crazy old man who reeks of piss yelling at you about how he was in the SAS.

Yeah, I laughed hard at that one. Oh the zany pictures I have from there. The worst was always when you felt bad, because the people selling them obviously hadn’t showered in quite some time, but you really didn’t want the crap they were selling. That, or the people raising money or awareness and didn’t care you were reading your book and would interrupt you JUST when the chapter was coming to a climax… grrrrrrrrr

The battery tree reminded me of the documentary (I think it was on Letterman) of spaghetti trees in Italy.

Car batteries??…..yowza.

“I made Mario jump twice before the batteries died.” ….the sad thing is…..I’ve said that very line before.

I just thought it was cute that Abe bought the little kid’s candy. I guess I would of expected him to say something like “Two bucks?” and then rant and rave like what Pres did at the movie theater. Daww, so cute, dat’ Abe! <3

Although the battery shitting troll bit caught me off guard…but a good laugh in the end.

And I would like to thank you Bernie for managing to update at least once a week, even though you now have two beautiful children to care for. Just do what you are able…I think the rest of us should be able to have enough patience to wait for another comic installment!

Troll! Troll! Troll!
The comic was perfect. I don’t live anywhere that has a sub-ground railway – and the last time I went on the tube in London, it was extremely mundane – but that was how I imagine at least one of the levels of hell!

By the way Bernie… when you wrote the comic, did your wife say “9 volt batteries? Oh poor troll. That’s nothing… I just had twins!”
If she didn’t, it is her right, privilege and duty to do so.

When I was in high school I had braces.

In science class when the teacher left us unsupervised, we’d grab the aligator clips, hook them up to my braces and one of those massive batteries they have in science classes and then use my braces to conduct the electricity to a little light :lol:

The electricity tickles your teeth! :)

Some neighbor kid tricked me into licking a battery when I was little. I didn’t get high but I got a wierd tingly sensation and a metalic taste. I wish you could get high off of batteries…

My junior year in high school there was a kid who stuck a pencil in one of the desktop sockets we had in the physics lab. There was a crackling sound, smoke came out of the socket and he was knocked off his stool. Funnier than hell.

Three months later, we found out that he recorded the highest SAT score in the school.

One of the biggest cultural shocks that I got when I moved from DC to NY was that they actually let people eat on the train. They are so strict about eating on the DC metro that they once arrested and handcuffed a kid (I think about 12 years old) for breaking the law.
