The pyramids of Egypt are one of the more fascinating wonders of the world, complete with mysterious backstories and history.  Only just recently do scientists believe they have figured out how the workers were moving these humongous stones around that they used to build them.  They would pour a measured amount of water in front of the pulling sleds to reduce the sliding friction on the sand, thereby reducing the number of workers needed to drag these multi-ton blocks.  The Egyptians were smart, man.

Well, maybe not all of them…  Like the guy in this comic.  There’s a lesson to be learned here…  If you’re doing a big job for someone don’t wait to the end for a big reveal.  Include them at the earlier stages and you can likely avoid uncomfortable situations later.  Like castration.  I consider that very uncomfortable.

Building pyramids is a LOT of work.  It would be far less taxing to like Peppermint Helmet on Facebook and vote for it at Topwebcomics in the sidebar.  Or even better and far more helpful to me, check out my Patreon page by clicking the big orange button and consider supporting me and my work!
