Hey, another scale comic!
Randall's been enjoying those

I'm confused. Is the south pole ice sheet really that tall?
@bertieb I've been enjoying them too. :)
 
@bertieb That's 3 now - getting bored with them

@Michael LOL. It's just he's done 3 Scales in 2 weeks ... I still like them :)
 
@DavidPostill Good. I'll call back the hounds then.
