Roommates 6 - River by AsheRhyder Roommates 6 - River by AsheRhyder
Sowing the seeds of discontent...

For those of you who don't know, "limey" comes from the British navy's practice of sucking on limes to prevent scurvy back when it was harder to keep fresh fruits and veggies aboard.


Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.

It would be typical of Javert to refer to James as a limey (smiles).

Wow. Javert really doesn't like that fruit basket, does he?

This was as useful as lemons for the shorter distances as ship travel became swifter and surer, to the point people forgot that limes have less of what prevents scurvy (Vitamin C) than lemons. When they started trying to sail for the Pole, they learned all over again..

LOVE this demonstration of Erik's lack of social skills. Pair that with Javert, and you get... awkward pauses. Brilliant!!

Setting aside the fact that, so far, Erik and Javert are my most favourite of the characters of these comics, I enjoyed this one especially mostly because they're both French.

Poor guy, he had to bring a fruit basket, and not only that, he had to actually hold it. His honor is at stake.

Erik: I can't believe you brought a fruit basket.
Javert: It was the Limey's idea!
:rofl:

Brilliant, so much said in such a short comic. Yeah i knew that about the term limey, i guess that's what happens when you research medicine and stuff like that for the 18th century. Nicely done AsheRhyder! :clap: :+fav:
