Comic #2384

1 Paris: Prepare for hyperspace skew!
1 Iki Piki: How, exactly, do we prepare?
2 Paris: Well, it's unpleasantly like one of those amusement park rides where you spin around and around and around and around. So avoid fatty and sugary foods.
3 Iki Piki: Serron! You're just in time. Where've you been?
4 Serron: I got hungry. I had a pizza, a couple of hot dogs, ice cream, and half a dozen doughnuts.

Unfortunately, wanting to keep this strip at least reasonably international, I couldn't use the canonical fun fair foods of fairy floss and Dagwood dogs.

Actually, I think we should start a campaign to have everyone in the world call it fairy floss. I don't mind about the dogs so much, but fairy floss is too cool to lose. Think about the literal meaning.

Fairy. Floss.

Isn't that much cooler than the other names?

Hercules V. writes:
In Afrikaans the word is spookasem - literal translation 'ghost breath'. Sorry, even cooler than fairy floss.

2022-12-10 Rerun commentary: In hindsight, I don't think four "around"s in Paris's statement in the second panel is quite enough. Five would have been better.

Also, I should have had Serron have a deep-fried Mars bar as well.
