Comic #123

1 Mordekai: So, Alvissa, if elves live for thousands of years, why haven't you outpopulated all the other races and taken over the world?
2 Alvissa: Elven children breast feed for 30 years, teethe for 20 years, throw tantrums for about 100 years, and...
3 Alvissa: ... don't take to toilet training until they're about 200.
4 Mordekai: Ah, I see.
4 Alvissa: Yeah. Elves invented effective contraception before we could use fire.
