  • Seems like Ben doesn’t think that joke cuts the mustard.

    • Did Wolfe mean that as a joke? I THINK he did, but…

      • Rando

        He is looking pretty smug, so I think the answer is probably yes.

        Or pride is sneaking up on them.

    • GristleMcNerd

      It WAS a bit hard to stomach. Rather stale, really.

      • I guess that’s just how the cookie crumbles.

        • billydaking

          Nobody likes a ham.

  • Just like the kebab shop on a Saturday night after the pub closes.

  • Rulebook Lawyer

    Speaking of bad jokes…
    Is that cat part of the free food handout?
    Nuk nuk nuk

    • ShadeTail

      That’s the law of the jungle for you. Eat until you get eaten.

  • Ghostdanser

    Worth noting that half the wall is missing and there’s no debris lying about…so that is literally “eating you out of house and home!” (or in this case hotel)

    • Brother Nightmare

      That, or because of all the time travel kerfuffle said rubble is just waiting somewhere in the future… or both even.

  • Darkoneko Hellsing

    Wolfe made me proud. This was puny.

  • Doldrum

    Ben, methinks it is time for you to revisit your breadmancy skills

    • Ocean Burning.

      Lol if only Ben was that terrifying

  • MoeLane

    …Yeah, Ben’s got this one. This is the same *kind* of job as the ones he’s been doing over the last few books. just a bit… larger, that’s all.

  • maeverin

    Ben is plum tired having to ketchup with all these sins, so you butter be on guard, Mr. Wolfe!

  • Del

    I hope I catch that ham.

    • John

      You can’t have that ham. That’s Gren’s ham. She’s been wanting it forever, or for at least 5 minutes. (That’s the same thing, right?)

      • Ghostdanser

        Now if we could just find a live chicken there could be… “Gren’s eggs and ham!”

          (inspired by the comment above, and the song “This is Halloween”)

          Boys and girls of every age
          Would you like to eat something strange?

          This is gluttony, this is gluttony!

  • Emily

    I just want to say how much I like the haircut Ben has these days. It makes him look younger and less buttoned-up, which is a nice illustration of the effect Mal and Wolfe have had on him.

    • Emily

      Speaking of which, I have a theory that Wolfe cuts Mal’s hair for him. When they first met, Mal had that straggly mop of hair: and it seems likely that sometime after they started traveling together, Wolfe trimmed it into the tidier style he has now (especially since Mal doesn’t do mirrors).

      And since Wolfe was the one who went to get the scissors when Ben’s hair was hopelessly snarled after the cider-barrel incident, he’s probably responsible for Ben’s haircut as well:

      • This is a correct theory! Also thank you for noting the haircut in that top post, that was the intent of it :D

  • JWLM

    Why are people inside Gula throwing things out to the crowd below? That doesn’t seem very Gluttonous to me…is there a trap here?

    • MoeLane

      They’re probably being influenced by the Deadly to do so, in order to feed the Gluttony of the people below. It all serves Gluttony’s Word.

      • Astra

        I looked a bit closer at the hotel workers’ expressions, and they seem more worried than influenced. The Hotel Gula itself is in shambles, but there doesn’t seem to be any debris on the street or near the building, which leads me to believe the workers are trying to placate the crowd with food so that they don’t eat the building the workers are in.

        • Or indeed, eat the workers.

        • Tsapki

          Maybe that was Gluttony’s ultimatum.

          “Bring food for that crowd to eat…. Or I will eat YOU!”

      • Phlebas

        Much the same way that Envy chose performers to provoke the members of the audience? That would make sense.

    • billydaking

      Keeping them from storming the kitchen?

  • Lily

    Imagine if one of these women was on a diet for the last 6 months, hoping to look her best on her wedding day. And then this happens. All lost weight is back, the dress doesn’t fit anymore, zits are popping all over the face and there are less than 3 days before the ceremony.

    • Rolan7

      Why did you have to say this D:

      • Lily

        I like to share <3

    • #092f0a

      And when she snaps out of Gluttony’s control she walks right into Pride :D Talk about having a bad day.

  • Alterna

    Working in this hotel is just the worst.

    • MoeLane

      You’d think that people would have remembered this, afterwards.

    • you mean the Wurst?

  • Who, me?

    I love that it’s Wolfe, the second language learner, making the pun! I once knew a Finnish man who had near-perfect English; I’m convinced that the primary reason for his expertise was his desire to make terrible, terrible jokes (what my family calls “Dad jokes”).

    • #092f0a

      So his jokes were fun-ish?

    • Ocean Burning.

      Yes, indeed! Good for Wolfe! His command of English is really excellent.

  • Marvelous TK

    man, that hotel’s gonna need some serious renova- ohhhhhhhhhh

    • John

      Of course it gets the renovations because it’s still there in 2032 when Ethan Booth shows up.

  • auronblidook

    I wonder how they’ll deal with this. If I was a wizard in this universe I’d probably summon disgust. Can’t think of a better way to keep people from eating.

    • Start serving broccoli and cauliflower of course, prepared using the traditional British recipe of boiling it for three hours. Suddenly the crowd will realise they’re not that hungry after all.

      • Euodiachloris

        Needs sprouts boiled to translucency and horrible with pigs in over-oiled (yet dry) and overcooked blankets. xP

        • Tsapki

          Hmm, the only horrifying English recipe I am vaguely aware of is eel pie. Elgie liked them though, bless his stabby heart.

  • NDee9001

    Well of course, Wolfe had to do the pun. Being quite familiar with the German language, he probably wishes to have a pickelhaube right now.

  • Deepbluediver

    Subtlety? What’s that? Is it some kind of cake?

    • Euodiachloris

      Subtlety, chocolate and Guinness cake… ;P

  • Euodiachloris

    The cat makes me giggle. :)

  • Spirit22

    Methinks we’ve seen the lady throwing the donuts before. I’m surprised she’s still working at the hotel!

  • The cat going after the (more-or-less) fish can’t be blamed on Greed – well, not in the sense of “doing something I wouldn’t do if Greed wasn’t affecting me”.

    Cats are NATURALLY greedy.

    “If I had two dead rats, I’d give you one.”

  • This guy

    I can’t believe this happened again.
    Maybe put up a sign.
