Comic #3693

1 Ishmael: Wait, alcohol is fatal to you? Did you just literally tell me your fatal weakness?
2 Martian 2: Oh, pshhh! That's not important. We have dozens of fatal weaknesses! Bacteria, water, MacOS viruses, Slim Whitman songs, Rick Astley videos...
3 Ishmael: And why are you risking all this to invade Earth this time?
4 Martian 1: To ensure we three are not the last Martians in existence.

I admit this strip was inspired by a reader e-mail after the previous strip in this theme, which basically asked Ishmael's opening questions.

Ishmael here is using "literally" literally, rather than figuratively, when it means "figuratively".

This figurative use of the word "literally" has become so common in the modern age that my friends and I have taken to using the term "literally literally" in conversation when we mean "literally" literally.
