OK, I can’t resist using this as another opportunity to remind everyone that Monolithic Dome Homes are awesome (and very compatible with the “hobbit hole” design).
TEXT OF COMIC:
I can’t wait until I can afford to have my own house built.
If you ever can, the way this world is going.
I want an underground house.
Oh, a hobbit hole?
Yeah. So energy-efficient, and safe from all sorts of things that can happen to the exterior of a house.
Too bad that it’s so hard to get neighbors to be okay with any type of unusual house. Especially in a nice area of town.
Yeah, that sucks. Because if I could, I’d build my hobbit house in a cul-de-sac.
Because “cul-de-sac” literally means “Bag End.”
