    Delicious! I prefer the formal Latin name of ‘Magma Tarta’, but a delicacy in any language.

    Obviously a Heston Blumethal restaurant.

  5. Alotron

    @ Hiller – Close… the ‘Melancholy Wallfish’ was opened by one of Blumenthal’s former protegés, Parthenon Dōōmbürger. Dōōmbürger parted ways acrimoniously with HB because he felt his old mentor didn’t go far enough, and that real molecular cuisine should at all times carry the risk of death or at least serious injury.

    He once created a Dark Matter fondue that caused a localised singularity, imploding most of the Principality of Liechtenstein, where his first restaurant was located. The manner of his escape remains the stuff of urban myth, but is said to have involved a small quantity of Yellowcake, a cement mixer filled with self-raising flour, and a duck (mallard).

    It was several years before anyone noticed Liechtenstein was missing.

  7. Bearman

    Sandy that sounds too much like Magna Carta

  8. Tim

    From now on this is how I want my coffee in the morning

  9. Dr. Dan

    “Magma Tarta” is fantastic.. Alan, are you sure it’s not too late to amend the strip? Do you need Sandy to sign away the rights first?

  10. Hiller

    Thanks for the heads up Alotron. I never knew that’s why Lichtenstein was so small. I had heard it was once the size of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, but dismissed it as poppycock. At least Jaimie Oliver wasn’t involved, because surely it would have resulted in a lemon and olive oil induced apocalypse, the like of which the world has never seen.

  11. Alotron

    Pappamick – Ouch!

    Bearman/Dan – Both the Magna Carta and the Magma Tarta are considered to be significant milestones in human progress…

    Tim – Ha ha, t’would certainly wake you up 8)

    Hiller – Wasn’t J. Oliver a suspect in the great Olive Oil tsunami of ’07 that washed away most of Andorra?

  12. Keoghbot

    Is that Parthenon Doomburger any relation to Tarquin Doomburger? One of the brilliant pioneering minds behind the McDonalds Apple pie.. which is obviously a crude precurser to the Magma Tart(a)

  13. Dr. Dan

    Jaysus, I could go for a DoomBurger right now.

  14. Katherine

    I just found your comic recently and I’m reading through from the beginning, this is my favorite so far.

  15. Alotron

    Hi Katherine – I’m quite fond of this one too! The last panel is one of my favourite things I’ve drawn :)
