Eh, if she's crazy enough to make love to a mannequin, I don't think she'll mind a little bit of dirt and disease.

How does she even know it is the same one, after all these years?

As long as its the same shape, she will get excited to it.

FREAK.

Yeah I think she would notice if they tried to give her a different dummy. A dummy dummy?

Okay, serious question here:

Are there germs that would exist that deep underground, that would survive, or would it actually be sanitary after having been buried 6 feet under for years?

We also have to take into consideration how long it's been used as "The Princess"...so it may not have been underground since Art and Pip buried it.

There are lots of bacteria in the ground, most of which we know very little about because they don't work with our growth techniques, because our growth techniques are derived vs. things that can infect the human body. (i.e. temperature, air, food aspects)

That said, I would hardly call it sanitary per se. Middle of the woods? Likely there's animal feces on the ground, with the rain washing it into the earth. Yeasts are everywhere, etc.

OTOH, the "princess face" wasn't part of it originally, was it? Doesn't look like it was, winding back. So maybe that wasn't buried in the ground.

Hello tetanus, legionella, botulism and goodness knows what else!

I believe one of the Scandinavian counties (Finland, perhaps) offers a delicacy that's basically a fish that's been buried for ten years before being dug up and cooked.  Considering all the things that humans will happily stick in their mouths, from bird nests to pig intestines (don't potatoes and truffles grow in similar conditions to where the dummy was buried?), I doubt she'll be majorly put out by anything on the dummy.  Besides, wouldn't the airsoft folks have had it professionally cleaned when they decided to make it part of their games?

Animal feces washing into the ground?  Like manure spread over gardens to fertilize vegetables?

What a great story arc over 40 comics long. Nicely done. Not saying it has to end yet.... Very Happy

@CyberCorn Entropic: It's Iceland, actually, not Finland, and it is called hákarl. It is, basically rotten shark. Here's the article from Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hákarl

And I hope the loon catches a disease from kissing that dummy.

Manure used in gardens is usually composted, which is to say it's let stand (sometimes with some turning) for the bacteria to cook themselves, the stuff, and anything else nasty away. Hence the intestinal parasite issue with the recent North Korean defector -- seems like they're likely using human waste to fertilize fields and not letting it sit (or processing it) enough.

And if you're curious about how on earth they came up with that recipe, here's a theory: https://satwcomic.com/icelandic-cookbook

Thank you. I thought I'd cut out and saved the Eddy/Pirahna Club Sunday comic about that one, but I couldn't find where I put it (assuming I really did cut and saved it) to help check my facts.

Thank you. That explains something that's puzzled me.

Still, I'd think the airsoft folks would have had the dummy professionally cleaned when they decided to use it. From what little we've seen of them, they seem quite competent and reasonable.

Good point, should've thought of that. Being used as sports equipment doesn't sound much better, though. What if someone was INJURED nearby? What about the sweat and blood?? D: D: D: D: I am only becoming more germophobic as I age.
