Poll: What do you think of song lyrics that have poor grammar just so they match the rhyme or meter?

Alvissa was quite a bit taller than this guy, since I've mounted the fantasy characters on fairly large bases, which the villagers don't have. So I cheated and quickly stuck some coins under him to make him a bit taller. And if you're curious, it's 15 yen.

The pitchfork is a farm utensil, but also the weapon of choice of angry mobs and enraged peasants, as Wikipedia affirms.

2015-05-30 Rerun commentary: The farmer appears to be wearing a rural farming style of Tyrolean hat with a narrow brim. In fact, he looks sort of Bavarian. And given the fact that they are near mountains, and grow apples in this region, it seems likely that this is a Fantasy Bavarian analogue cultural region.

Doesn't explain the yen, though.

News: I am travelling to Japan and the USA on business from Monday 1 to Wednesday 17 June. Comics should update automatically as usual. However if something goes wrong I will be unable to fix it until I return home - please do not send e-mail to report a website problem during this time. Thanks, see you when I get home!
