it's okay, etymology doesn't bite. It just strangles you to death
I've never used grays to shade before. I think I'm too old to be inking after 2am. This one feels rather disjointed -- or moreso than normal, I should say. Plus, the snake as metaphor is just about the hoariest* cartoon gag ever done, especially with the label on it.

But, we see our pal Chaucer again, so that's a good thing. Also, hoards and hoards of mice. Maybe I'm just trending vermin with this strip.

*Hoary, not "whore-y," as I had to clarify for my students one day.

  1. The grays look great, I think. Adds depth. Also, "Emperor needs a new pair of coliseums" KILLED me. Keep up the fine tooning...
