#14 Mellow Fluids OperationalsSeptember 29, 2016
There are plenty of beverage establishments in the city. The most notorious is Mellow Fluids Operationals, known to be the oldest in the city.
They are also known for inventing the most enjoyed beverage in the realm: Glup. Named after the original owner, Willai Glupglup.
Nowadays everybody has their own version. The only common ingredient seems to be water.
Aside from Mellow Fluids, nobody knows the original recipe, so you might just as well be drinking something entirely different.
So “glup” has basically become synonymous with any self-made drink. People sometimes add adjectives or words to name specific types. This has given birth to variations such as green glup, volatile glup, glup with rat tail and banana roof glup. But even then, the ingredients on those seem to vary from person to person.
Speaking of drinking establishments, it has become a habit for them to have very imaginative names, such as Parched Perch, Sapless Salmon and Peppy Pike. At first it was kind of innovative, but now everyone is doing it in lack of better ideas...
By the way, is anybody wondering, what is the difference between glup and soup? They are both made with random ingredients and water, right? Well, here is an excerpt from Das Law: "Cold is glup. Warm is soup. Warm, then cold, is cold soup."
On the second panel, I went and drew two candles. And then spent quite a bit of time making shadows to give an impression of a dark room. At first, I wondered why did I put the candles there, but soon I had to pull myself off of the drawing, or I would have spent even more time making lines everywhere. I want to keep up with the deadlines, or nothing gets finished on time.
I will now go and relax, sipping on a tippy mug of glup.
