This week in Epic Fail: Dirk is becoming bored of shopping but reluctant to leave Amuletts. He makes a slip of the tongue and is mocked for it. When Amuletts makes an innuendo he flees.
Creator’s Commentary: Yes this is Epic Fail’s first running gag. It’s a gag about running.
I made a typo and this strip happened, with due influence from my own experience of tongue-slips. Very funny, very embarrassing and oh so true. “Lave” means to soothe as if by washing, never to be confused with lathe which is a woodworking tool for cutting or sanding.
