Storyboard Text

  • The satyr, Marsyas, was a flutist who boasted that his music skills were superior to that of Apollo's and challenged him to a musical contest.
  • I'm so good at the flute, I bet I could even beat Apollo at a music contest.
  • Meanwhile in Olympus...
  • Did I just hear someone call themselves a better musician than me? The god of music?
  • Challenge accepted.
  • During the first round of the competition, both contestants played equally well, so no winner was declared. Apollo, who was not satisfied with the results demanded that they played their instruments upside down
  • I admit, you're pretty good. But I bet you can't play your instrument upside down.
  • I am caught at a great disadvantage fore it is impossible to play a flute with the downside faced up, whereas it is much simpler to play a lyre when its upside is faced down. I have been...DEFEATED!
  • GASP
  • I want to start off by flaying you alive while you're tied to this tree, but since that's too graphic, I'll just end this comic strip right here.
  • Beforehand, the two had agreed that whomever won would get the privilege to take whatever or do whatever they wanted to the defeated contestant.
