Crossword nerd humor in today's Wondermark

Also remind me sometime, dear blog, to try a post in the style of Rex Parker like I've been meaning to do for a while.

Land World!

There is a place under the sea, somewhere under where the Bermuda triangle is, called Land World. It is a theme park. When people disappear in boats and planes sometimes they end up there (sometimes they were drunk and just crashed). It is a bubble. Like in that movie The Abyss. In the bubble there are rooms in which they have air, and in those rooms they have bugs, rodents, dogs, dancing bears, and people. If you are a shark, or a whale, or a fish, or a squid, you can go to Land World with your children. You can walk with the dogs. You can show up at 2:15, 4:30, or 6:15 when they feed the humans. This one shark mom let her stupid ass sharklet reach through the bubble and this human punched the sharklet pretty bad. Some people thought it was sad but mostly it was considered hilarious, at least on the internet.

This was the idea I had last night. It seemed a hell of a lot funnier then. Now it just seems like a scenario for that one-panel Far Side rip-off they run in the Post.

Rare Vincent Price outtake from the Thriller sessions

Most people don't know this, but they actually had to bring in a ringer with a spookier laugh.
