Comic #2696

1 Lambert: My Uncle Bilbert was once indentured as a chef for a human Lord. The humans from miles around my village took many of us as vassals.
2 Lambert: It was a terrible time. The human overseers would punish us terribly at the slightest provocation. They seemed to get enjoyment out of it.
3 Lambert: The king had to pass a law stating that humans could only beat serfs with their hands, and not their feet.
4 Mordekai: You mean...
4 Lambert: Yes. They couldn't kick their fealty hobbits.
