Comic #1789

1 {scene: Flight HL16 from Singapore to Glasgow. The cockpit windows show night has fallen, with stars in the clear sky outside.}
1 Terry: Glasgow has emergency crews ready.
1 Stewardess: Good. But we still need to get the snakes away from the passengers.
2 Steve: Let's blow a hole in the side of the plane so they get sucked out!
3 Stewardess: What?! That would depressurise the plane, hinder control and navigation, and endanger the lives of everyone on board!
3 Steve: So?
4 Terry: It might hurt the snakes, Steve.
4 Steve: Oh! Crikey! Well that's a stupid idea then! {the dark bulk of a mountain looms in the cockpit window, unseen by anyone}

The background image here is a royalty-free stock photo from stock.xchg. Thanks to the photographer, zoxel, for making his photos available for use.

2018-08-06 Rerun commentary: You can't even see much of that background image. I think these days I would have just created the background from scratch in Photoshop, if I didn't use one of my own photos.

Actually, looking ahead into the next few strips, I can see why I chose to use this background photo. But I'll leave you in suspense for now...
