You don't trust this mutant.
He's obviously defective.
Look at that hand for Chi Naur's sake.
If there were a balcony nearby you would throw this
surreptitious gremwik from it readily.
You listen to your thoughts, you're going mad.
Even if he is a mutant this is inappropriate behavior.
Your mind is just clouded by the memories from your dream.
You take up TQ-42 on his offer of water.
You'll kill this yogurt demon clouding your mind
and drink this man water.
The pitcher he materialized succeeded in calming you.
He seems considerably less bizarre.
With a clear head you will do what you came here for.
You ask TQ-42 if he has had any problems
with mutants at the job.
TQ-42 asks what you're talking about and
repeats the general policy of recycling uncanny mutants as
soon as they show variance in the phenotype.
He asks you if something is wrong at the spawning plant.
Beh, I changed the hand image back. But I was feeling less lenient about the whole not being near a balcony thing. I thought I could get away with drawing him outside then drawing him inside and let the connection be made that he moved. Maybe I have to be more obvious.
I'm finding it strange that so much calling of mutant is for these relatively small aberrations when TQ-01 had round head for half of the first 30 panels. I'm somewhat pleased that expectations have grown.
