I like this explanation.

E for using "raises a[...] question" and not misusing "begs the question".

#3 acheron Sun, 25 Nov 2012 20:38:02
(Yes, I am easily won over.)

acheron: YOU NOTICED!

E for 87 being indeed the number of hallucinatory monsters.

This is wonderful.

This strip raises a question: Why must Rodney wipe out those monsters, even though he is already very powerful, and can beat those monsters single-handedly?

Maybe he hates his mother-in-law?

Another question is raised: What would Dudley see in a hallucination before Rodney wiped out all of those hallucinatory monsters?

I thought the list of hallucinatory monsters supplements the list of actual monsters but does not replace it: you can still hallucinate that the cockatrice next to use is a newt, or even (rarely) a cockatrice if that happens to be the RNG's choice. So Rodney's geno-spree wouldn't have changed Dudley's hallucinations at all.
