I don't either.. I get archaeologistglass golem"The original story harks back, so they say, to the sixteenth
century. Using long-lost formulas from the Kabbala, a rabbi is
said to have made an artificial man -- the so-called Golem -- to
help ring the bells in the Synagogue and for all kinds of other
menial work.
"But he hadn't made a full man, and it was animated by some sort
of vegetable half-life. What life it had, too, so the story
runs, was only derived from the magic charm placed behind its
teeth each day, that drew down to itself what was known as the
`free sidereal strength of the universe.'
"One evening, before evening prayers, the rabbi forgot to take
the charm out of the Golem's mouth, and it fell into a frenzy.
It raged through the dark streets, smashing everything in its
path, until the rabbi caught up with it, removed the charm, and
destroyed it. Then the Golem collapsed, lifeless. All that was
left of it was a small clay image, which you can still see in
the Old Synagogue." ...

Ever heard of Dungeons&Dragons 4.0?

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.....

At least that's my interpretation.

Well I guess I must be dense, but I don't remember dragons in the Indy Jones series. Nuclear bombs, yes, refrigerators yes, dragons no.

uh.......... what?

I kind of get the Indy Jones thingy, what what's with the dragons and the 'new version' of the dungeons?

Frankly, I'm surprised noone got that Dragons reference. Are there really no RPG nerds out there? Among NetHack players? You've got to be kidding me...

Ah, dungeons AND dragons. I thought, "d&d mentioned, what 'bout it?" :)

Was it really THAT obscure? I concur with T-Jack.

Yep, it's just two separate minor puns. I wanted to complete those two outdoor strips with a "back to the dungeon" one, couldn't think of any single brilliant pun and consequently just used two little references to recent evens which shared some NH connection. That's all.

Dudley doesn't have this problem. http://cad-comic.com/comic.php?d=20080609

I don't give a shit about that movie, and I don't play D&D (I blame it on the lack of people around to play it with).

Of course, if the comic had have come out in June (or whenever)... I might have got it more ... Fair.

He should have said, "I hear there's a new version of the dungeons... and look! Dragons!"
