This strip inspired me to look up Jellyfish. Since they're invertebrates, as Ming notes, they're not actually fish. Thus aquariums are instead attempting to popularize the term jellies. But this seems a dangerous step. What if our children mistakenly spread these delicately drifting sea beings on their breakfast toast? WHAT THEN?

Also, did you know jellyfish have an "oral surface"? I know, hot, right?

Transcription

A meeting.
Umesh: I'm tell you, my way is the right way to do this! Krishna, back me up.
Krishna: I just want what's best for everyone.

Umesh: We talked about this before the meeting and you agreed with me!
Ming: Don't bully him, Umesh. He agrees with us.

Umesh: NO HE DOESN'T! HE'S JUST A SPINELESS JELLYFISH!

Ming: Aren't all jellyfish spineless? Your premise is redundant.
Krishna: I agree.
