I’m mixing up Richard Gutierrez’s knight-in-shining-speedboat stunt with one of the few classic puzzles that haven’t been referenced in pop culture.  (The guard who only tells the truth and the other guard who only tells lies is fairly worn out at this point.)

This strip was also inspired by Chompy’s mom, who was trying to transport two dogs out of the flood yet couldn’t leave them alone with the other as they would tear each other apart.
