No, the plural for milf absolutely should not be milves.

Also, I advise that you do not search for the term "milfs" out of grammatical curiosity.

I don't remember exactly what was in Yay's coming out speech yielding to Aurelia's mom powers. It couldn't have included all of Yay's powers -- that would have taken too long.

"We are actually an indescribably powerful, multiply-embodied hyper-AI whose necessarily cryptic existence has rendered us desperately lonely"

Having had quite similar conversations with friends in the past, I doubt that either Yay or Aurelia are thinking of this literally.  It's just a version of "Kill it.  With fire.  From Space!!!"

I agree, it feels like Yay's intent is to get smile out of Aurelia, or at least distract her.  And it's not like the strip hasn't joked about orbital bombardment before...

I mean, it's impossible to make everyone in a room fall asleep by snapping your fingers as well. So.

If I remember right, Aurelia is not yet aware of Yay's immense power. The next sentence should be something like "what do you mean, 'drop a decommissioned satellite on them?' Is that an option?"

So, what are we here for if not to overanalyze a joke? Imagine starting with a LEO communication satellite and tracking its deorbit maneuver in real time, controlling its RCS to stay on a planned trajectory. I have no idea how much precision you could get. At a guess it would be less than an ICBM, which is carefully designed for precision. A typical ICBM has a CEP of 150-200 meters and even the ones that are allegedly 10 meters or less are not precise enough to land on a person. So, then, Yay must have been kidding.

While the sports(?) bottle is a small step, at least she is not (yet) drinking straight from the wine bottle :{

I love the little side-eye infodump that explains so much about the Claire, Clinton and Aurelia's insecurities.

Offering to hire a hitman would have quite different implications.

I mean, the QC universe is far more advanced then ours. Maybe there is a technology that allows for greater control over a satellite movement and protective materials that withstand the reentry heat. They got fricking AI!

Bad Yay! No nuking them from orbit!  :laugh:

No, not nuking, just a little sattelite crater! Cause, you know, Antigua is very small. Nuking would leave no Antigua at all.
