Comic #196

1 Haken: {to the tied-up (again!) Prof. Jones and Monty} Herr Doktor Jones. Again we see there is nothing you can possess which I cannot take away.
2 Haken: Now I not only have the first Mayan Codex, but also the Egyptian Book of the Dead!
3 Prof. Jones: Lucky he didn't find the Grail Diary in my pocket, eh Junior?
4 Haken: Oh ho!
4 Monty: Oh, way to go, dad.

Yet another alternate version:

Again, this was my original idea, but I wasn't sure if most readers would get it. (And in case you don't, Haken is using lines directly from Raiders of the Lost Ark. Movie geeks will, of course, know these lines off by heart. Ba-doom-boom.)

2012-06-14 Rerun commentary: I really went in for showing off alternate versions of the comics at this point in the strip's history. Eventually I gave up this practice, otherwise you'd probably have seen alternate versions of about half the strips over the years. I quite frequently changed the joke or the punchline at the last minute while assembling the comic.

In retrospect, it's probably better that I threw away the old versions, since what I replaced them with tended to be funnier.

I hope.
