Courage, Bravery, and Chickens
on June 13, 2013 at 12:00 am
Not all chickens are chicken, but they all taste like chicken.
(This comic strip was previously published on July 1, 2010.)
Our great artist friend Debbie Adams gave Binky a purple rocket recently, and she has just given him a matching space trailer to go with it. Now when Binky travels to the moon, he’ll be able to bring home much more dark moon chocolate. You can read all about it on Debbie’s Binky Heads To The Moon Again post on her art blog.

I wonder who are braver, Wombies or chickens?
I know how to lure Wombies back into their cage. Just leave a trail of wine gums.
Yes and pancakes or marshmallows
work just as well on Wombies too Dave 🙂
And don’t forget chocolate!
You could go down to your local Walmart and purchase decent Swiss chocolate. The Milka chocolate bars are good. 🙂
It might be a trap though.
That wouldn’t be fair if a store selling chocolate was a trap!
It’s pretty hard to resist wine gums! Even if it is a trap! (Don’t tell the Zombies I said that!)
I won’t tell. Can you imagine Wombie Zombies!? You would want to eat our brains 😐
I’d only want to eat your brains if they were made of wine gums or chocolate.
So, you do have your limits. Thank goodness my brains are only made out of brains.
That’d be icky. Well I guess Zombies don’t think so. But then they’re Zombies!
What do zombies know? They eat brains because they have none.
Zombies know even less than me!
Now Fraz, have you done scientific studies to prove this?
Ummm no. But I have a brain and zombies don’t. So I should be able to beat them on a test.
Don’t worry Winky I won’t tell them 🙂
That’s good! You have the most Zombies of anyone!
Yes but Fraz trains them for me 🙂
I thought Fraz just trapped them!
Kamikaze Chickens – who would have thought it !
Kamikaze Chicken sounds like a tasty dish.
Hey Duncan I like
your new profile picture 🙂
I eggspect these chickens didn’t step back fast enough when volunteers for a suicide mission were asked to step forward
It’s clucking awesome Duncan 🙂
Oh no, not the chicken jokes.
Yes chicken jokes, I knew that you would love that one 🙂 Now what else can I think of, ahhh yes “Why did the chicken cross the road?” Well to get to the other side of course, everyone knows that Loon 🙂 xxxx
I think he crossed the road to get the chocolate. Or maybe that was me.
It was definitely YOU Winky 🙂
Yeah, it was me.
Suicide mission?? Those poor chickens!
Poor chickens 🙁
Those poor, poor chickens.
But ever so tasty!
I really like Twinks expression on this one Peter, she is astonished but then Fraz is as cute as always with his eager thoughts 🙂
Thanks, Andro. Expressions are often difficult to portray directly, so a little body language helps.
wombies are the cutest And Peter is such an amazingly fabulous artist ♥ ♥ ♥
Thank you, Soma. You and Andro are much too kind.
You pulled off Twink perfectly, Peter. Eyebrows and eyelids are so important.
Thanks, Red. The models used to have built-in eyebrow controls, but when I upgraded that feature no longer worked. I don’t use eyebrows as much as I should now.
It makes it a lot more work adding those so I hope that the programme starts working correctly again soon 🙂
I really need to update some of the controls and features on the models but never seem to get around to it.
You need a helper, maybe a nice
Lady Knight could be of some use? 😉
Sounds good. Can you email her to me?
I have a whole folder of them. They cause less work. 😛
I could definitely use a few of them.
I like this painting by Deb, and I am just thinking that we could get a lot of chocolate and wine gums in that trailer 🙂 What a wonderful idea 🙂
Well done Deb it’s brilliant 🙂 xxxx
Yes, that’s a Winky-sized trailer.
Deb paints such fun stories and she told me I can go with Wombie for the chocolate galaxies too… yuppiieeee
There will always be room for you, Soma. Though my rocket still isn’t quite finished. . .
I told her where the secret compartment is in the trailer. Looks like Soma with be going with you next time. 😉 🙂
We can all look froward to some crazy/funny stories, then.
Thank you, Soma.
Soma, if Binky’s rocket is not ready the next time he goes, you can always hide out in the trailer…There’s a secret compartment.
There is one of those in my camper as well. They fight over who gets to ride in it. o.O
Secret compartments are fun! That’s where I hide my gold and wine gums!
Thank you for telling us where all the goodies are Fraz, actually I think you need another hiding place now as everyone will be after your wine gums 🙁
I have Sharky guarding my secret compartment. I don’t think anyone will be stealing my wine gums!
Oh yes I forgot about that 🙁 Gulp
No one messes with Sharky!
Thank you, Andro! 🙂
You’re welcome Deb 🙂 🙂 xxxx
yes it is true I was there when they captured the Lion and now the Lion is suing the entire district as he never got to taste even a chicken wing!
I guess I’m sorry for the lion but I’m happy for the chickens!
False advertising is bad business.
I think the chickens were forced into it!
I wonder if the lions will
get their chicken supper?
I hope not! The lions can have chocolate instead.
If they are having chocolate
maybe you and me should join in? 🙂
Um, I think the lions should be left alone when they’re eating.
A brave chicken? OMG Fraz, you got to find out where to get them. You can use them to peck at the Zombie’s eyes if they try to escape your traps.
That’s a good idea! They could be the Chicken Guard!
And you’d always know if one of the Zombies are trying to escape for all the noise the chicken make.
You know, this is beginning to sound like a drawing or painting for me to do one day. 🙂
Yeah they’d make a good alarm system! And it sounds like a good painting!
We want that painting this weekend Deb,
as it sounds just up your street and I don’t mean the chicken either 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you think of for this one 🙂 xxxx
I really like the the way Fraz’s hand is situated when he asks Twink where to find the chickens. It really makes him look series about it. Twink’s expression is perfect for what he asked.
Thanks, Deb. They do a lot of talking with their hands because it’s a good way to visually express what they’re saying or doing.
Their shadows on the
chair look awesome too 🙂
Shadows can add another dimension too, but I have a difficult time getting the lighting right sometimes.
I’ve never noticed that so you must
be doing all the right things Peter 🙂
I’m glad you haven’t noticed, but my lighting is often pretty flat.
I still remember how much fun I had drawing Binky.
It’s always an honor when you post them here on your site.
It’s an honor for us when you make them!
I agree with you Deb and I have been looking at all the fan art, it grows faster every day, which is really great I think 🙂 xxxx
I have many very talented and kind fans!
And the chickens didn’t have a choice either. Great toon.
Have a terrific day filled with chocolate. 🙂
They forced the poor chickens to do it??
No, no. They told them they would have the opportunity to star in a televised rescue. You would have volunteered!
I’m pretty glad I didn’t! I fought a shark, but I don’t wanna fight a lion!
Is there any other kind 🙂
I was talikng to Comedy Plus there 🙂
All my days are chocolate filled days!
Mine too Winky, here have this chocolate lollipop I was saving, it’s still got its wrapper on, or is that rapper, noooo let’s not try the rapping again 🙁
Maybe you could try some chocolate wrapping instead.
I didn’t notice where the chickens came from.
I was busy hiding up in a tree.
I’m with you!
Don’t try the tree idea if you are hiding from the Zombies SIG as they are a lot smarter than they look 🙁
Zombies can climb trees?
No they are not that
smart but they learn fast
after sucking brains 🙂
I think everyone should wear helmets!
Just not ones with combs and feathers…
I don’t think a feather helmet would work very good.
Run chickens, run!!!!
You heard Loon, run!!
They run a lot faster with Binky
jet packs attached to their backs 🙂
They would! And maybe they could fly that way too!
I think that Concorde was modelled on chickens with Binky jet packs on their backs 🙂
It does kinda look like a chicken!
Brave chickens are a close cousin to boneless chickens. Weird how genetics works.
Boneless chickens sound kinda floppy to me.
With a spine and without a spine are far closer than you might imagine.
So you’re saying all are chickens are floppy?
Spineless as in just chickens I think? 🙂
I dunno. I think I’m getting confused.
It is very confusing I know 🙁
When I get confused, I eat some chocolate.
I eat a lot of chocolate.
LOL! Spineless chickens are the scaredest chickens. 😛 ROFL!
Boneless chickens are the floppiest.
First you have to catch the xhickens. That means you have to set a chicken trap. You can learn about that by watching old Foghorn Leghorn cartoons.
That sounds like a lot of work. I think they shoulda just asked the lion to go home.
Tell me about it. I’d be too chicken.
At least the chickens weren’t chicken!
Those chickens were braver than me!
You could wear your armour and, that
should give you an edge over the lions 🙂
It might. It’d be kinda scary to try though!
Not with your Vampy
fangs in place you won’t 🙂
I dunno it that’d work with lions. They have pretty big fangs!
Hey your Notify via email only if someone replies to my comment thing doesn’t work. Tried it and got every comment after mine sent via email.
Thanks for letting me know, Bearman. I deleted the plugin and re-installed it, so hopefully that will fix it. I really don’t know why it stopped working properly.
When you reinstalled it, it is sending my notifications for (every single) comment in Mandarin.
Well I didn’t think it was going to do that! I changed one of the options, but it’s probably too late now. I’m sure everyone is going to love that. Sorry everyone!
I just tested it out myself. It went crazy, sending out emails with Chinese characters in them. I deactivated it again. It must have got corrupted somehow, and it wasn’t fixed by deleting it.
It is not sending me any more for the last post but I do not know if there have been any more. I just know there is still an “Unsubscribe” button for this one… even though I have unsubscribed.
Sorry about that, Red. I don’t know what went wrong there, but it sure did go wrong. I hope everyone didn’t end up with dozens of crazy emails from me.
I didn’t get any, but then I never click those extra boxes, there is no need as I always read everyone’s comments anyway, and usually butt in on the action, how cheeky of me 🙂 lol
I’m glad you didn’t get those extraneous emails, Andro. I hope not too many people did.
Ahah They should at least tell us their names. Those chickens deserve to be famous.
Yeah I think so too!
Chicken medals and
awards that is a good idea 🙂
Yeah they should get the chicken bravery medal!
Is that “cage” KFC?
It better not be! Those chickens were heroes!
Confucius say: “Chicken become brave only with zen of hen.”
I dunno what that means, but it sounds smart like something Binky would say!
I doubt that the chickens were brave . . . probably somebody just EGGED them on! W.C.C.
With chocolate eggs?
It is I! General Bwak Bwak!
So you escaped from the lions??
wow, Fraz, such bravery deserves to be rewarded, were they released afterwards?.. or were they dinner? Gulp!! xPenx
Lady Pen those chickens are having a slap up feed at this very moment, I just hope that the lions don’t catch them as it was supposed to be their treat 🙁 xxxx
I hope the chickens are free!
They are free up to a point but if those zombies see them it could be dangerous, and I don’t know what the pecking order will be either 🙁
I think those chickens need to keep running!
Zombie chickens have the built-in weapons of their beaks…
There are zombie chickens?? I hope there aren’t zombie lions too!
I would definitely like zombie lions less.
They’d be way more scary than regular zombies!
I don’t know! They never told us!
erm, I just had some chicken drumsticks, Fraz, I hope they weren’t those brave chickens. In fact, they were very tasty, maybe THEY were the zombie ones, does that mean I’ll be changing soon? (That’ll teach me not to be a vegetarian!) 😉 xPenx
You wouldn’t eat those chicken heroes!
I don’t know about the zombie chickens. You probably shouldn’t eat those either.
A rocket’s got to have a nice trailer! 🙂
Especially when one is going on a chocolate mining expedition.
Haha! Well done!
Few chickens would give their lives.
I guess they were un-chicken chickens.
Chickens have braveness beyond that of most creatures. They just keep it hidden well.
They do? I didn’t know that! I wonder if there’s a Super Chicken out there?
I wonder if KFC do a Super Chicken meal Deal???
I think it’d be bad to eat Super Chicken!
How about a super wine gum chicken? 🙂
Maybe if they’re just in the shape of chickens!
Like gummi bears but better.
I wonder if gummi chickens taste like chicken?
I am rather glad gummi bears do not taste like bear. o.O
It’d be okay if they tasted like honey!
Good question Fraz!! Poor chicken 🙁 (but I’ll be having them for tomorrow’s dinner 😉 )
But they saved us from the lion!
I think it is a chocolate chicken 🙂
I’ve never had a chocolate chicken before.
It’s like a frog chocolate in Harry Potter 😉
A chicken shaped chocolate
If it’s made out of chocolate it’d have to be good!
I forgot to let you know that it is absolutely okay for you to add the script that you mentioned along with your rocket 🙂
Sorry for my delay on that one and thank you so much for asking me 🙂 🙂
No problem, Andro. I will add it to that page soon.
Maybe they should rethink the word “chicken-livered”.
Yeah those chickens were brave livered!
That lion was a victim of fowl play.
Good one, George!
hehehe! aww…sometimes ignorance is bliss and it should be protected…at times 🙂
Yes, sometimes it can be good!
