Merry Christmas, everyone.  Thus begins the Fourth Great WoB Extravaganza.  Why is Marie wandering the streets of Toronto in the wee hours of Christmas morning, following random clues that seem to make little or no sense?  Only time will tell, unless it doesn’t.



  1. Yay! Tentacles! 😀

  2. I’m curious what that legothon (spell check tried to change it to “legit hon”) is…

  3. Fan: A Legothon would, as far as I’m concerned, be a vigorous competition involving Lego, possibly with some complex building goal in mind. The poster is there for a reason. A number of the street names, character names, and signs that have been floating through the strip lately are there for a reason. The first person who figures that reason out wins eternal fame and glory, as per usual.

  5. I’m going to be a history major but I like researching but not writing the papers, wanna combine resources?

  6. Oooh, we are journeying into the underworld! We’ve seen the five rivers:
    Sticks – Styx
    Leethy – Lethe
    Acorn – Akheron
    Legothon – Phlegethon
    Cook Aitus – Kokytos

    The 50 cents must be for the ferryman (I notice Marie gave them to that English PhD)

  7. Nicely done, fan. The puns have been getting more and more outrageous. Also, the barista’s name was Sharon (it’s too bad the 50 cents didn’t go to her, but it’s not a perfect metaphor).

  8. Don’t go in there, Marie(s). Don’t do it! Somehow fitting that Tartarus is a taxidermy shop… 🙂

  9. When Casey called he said not to drink or eat something, and with all the underworld references, could it been like something a references to not eating the pomagrante seeds from Queen Persphones garden?

  10. Pomagrante juice!!!

  11. So, with the reference to Leethy/Lethe- that would explain what happened to Marie’s memory- do we get a Mnemosyne reference later when everything comes back to her?

  12. Mercenary Pen: We’ll see. I’m still kicking myself that I thought of the whole Underworld angle relatively late; Marie should have woken up on Leethy, not Acorn. Ah well.

  13. Drop spindles are always handy.

  14. I didn’t notice anything in Casey’s call about not to drink or eat… Maybe I just didn’t fill in the gaps right.
