Fun fact: Mark Trail can make something happen by the mere utterance of his all-powerful Word. Take the last panel in today's comic, for example. Mark informs Ranger Buzz that he really ought to put on a life preserver, not for basic canoeing safety or anything,* but so as to deceive people.** And before the words have even left Mark's mouth, the life preserver has just instantaneously appeared on Ranger Buzz's torso. If you look closely, you can even see what appears to be a look of shock and awe on Ranger Buzz's face.***
*Considering that Mark Fucking Trail is the ultimate life preserver, what extra protection could you possibly need, after all?
***Of course, considering that this is Mark Trail, it could be any number of other emotions, including, but not limited to: constipation, pain, pleasure, thoughtfulness, lust, sorrow, jaundice, misery, contempt, respect for wildlife creatures, or death.
