Strips like this are like New Yorker cartoons...on their own, none of them is even remotely funny, but after I read about 50 of them, they start to make me laugh out of their own sheer consistency.

Yeah...But getting through 50 of them is the problem. I couldn't make it through five.

I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).

There's something genius and something idiotic about this.

With its Brutalist decor, the Alien Building ponders its disruption of negative space alongside the Revisionist Deco ornamentation of the Predator structure:

"As a Brutalist enclosure, I am aroused by the numbering scheme of the newly-rebranded Gatorade™ by-products."

The Predator Building enthusiastically responds:

"Fornicate within the Affirmative! The imposed metric instills a more assured means of inclusive libation!"

Both architectures pause, and chime in mutual consensus:

"FORNICATE WITHIN THE AFFIRMATIVE! FORNICATE WITHIN THE AFFIRMATIVE!"
