I've wanted to do this homage to the scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark for a long time. I tried for an angle to get a gag into it. Then I remembered that they're in Paris, and European cities tend to have cobblestones.

Just imagine how much more this would hurt than doing it on a nice forgiving dirt road. Ow.

2019-09-21 Rerun commentary: The background photo in the fourth panel, with the people walking around the corner, looks a bit oddly proportioned compared to the Lego models. I don't remember if I tried scaling it a bit differently and decided this was the best, or if I was just a bit sloppy. I'm guessing the latter.

Monty doesn't use his whip very much, but he certainly has one.
