Oh, cool! May we run these on a Sunday?

Now I feel like we have to figure out what the Bureau of Precambrian Defense actually does. It could be a whole spinoff.

Shaenon — I'd be honored if you ran them. I'm still thinking about a Department of Irradiation seal: using the standard symbol for irradiation would be so blasé.

How about all the good things that radiation give? Maybe a smiling mutant?

I mulled about it for a while, and then thought of an excellent seal for Chris and Marcie's department. While inspired by the original department logo from "The Borrowers" storyline, Chris & Marcie's gaming sessions with Nick gave me an idea of what to use. RTS gamers may recognize it:

Do you think I had the 1st idea what a squidhole was when I invented it? Certainly not! I was just messing about! That's when the very best & very Maddest Science gets done. I thought,Why, this alabaster octopus looks like it wants a nice transmission inside it,& fairly soon I had a thing that obviously had a Use, though what that Use could be was a total mystery.

I'm really enjoying these. Major points for spiffing up my extremely minimal design on the Annex One security staff patches.

Delving way back into "The Borrowers" storyline comes this one. I would prefer to have used "454" instead of "555", but that phone number is in active use for something else these days. :)

You, sir, have way too much time on your hands. :wink:
But I'm pretty sure the D of I motto is actually "Shut up, Chris."

The next step, of course, is to just start making up departments--starting with the Dept. of Just Making Crap Up (and maybe the Bureau of Non-Sequiters.)

You might change your mind if you haven't already translated the Latin back into English. :mrgreen:

Aside from the Department of Stapling (which is how this all got started), these are all various canon personnel and organizations Shaenon has either noted in the background somewhere, e.g., the Clerk of the Clerk of Clerks, or had a character mention by name, e.g., the Bureau of Misfit Toys.

Which reminds me: I'm still trying to determine if Shaenon has canonically named "the Institute" Dr. Tigerlily Jones is on loan from. Working theory is that it's the Institute for the Sane Study of Mad Science based on something recently posted in Nick's blog and the assumption that Skin Horse takes place in the same setting Narbonic did, but I haven't found any direct mention to confirm this.

Your best bet so far is found in the March 12th strip.

Aha! I knew I'd seen that somewhere, I just couldn't find the strip. Thanks!
