And so it turns out everyone was a Skrull, I mean, Coyote.
It's just a trick, bro.
Did I ever say, I wish Annie still had long hair?
Did he still have teeth though?
Well that's... progressive.

That last panel is gorgeous and I'd love it in wallpaper form, with no word boxes. Is this what got you going on the recent twitter fancy doodles?
I always appreciated how humble Coyote is.
Awww, poor lonely goose wife. I hope she reunites with her goose husband soon.
We all outgrow our acid days. The survivors, anyway.
I think this will end in blood.
This has just started to get REALLY hilarious. Almost reaching "Ballpit Bazinga" hilarious!
Still with you so far, carry on.
*eats more popcorn*
And coyote then remained there forever, and never bothered anyone with his bad stories every again, the end.
The Coyote version of the Jesus burrito question: Can Coyote trick himself? The answer may surprise you! *O*
Coyote. Coyote stop this. This is foolishness
"The very pinnacle of the lie is reached where where even the liar is persuaded to believe it to be the truth and defend it accordingly." -- Emmanuel Goldstein; 'Freedom is Slavery'.
I've got a feeling that Coyote is reminding us something very important about the lies we tell ourselves and just whether a certain half-fire imp girl of our acquaintance may be fooling herself in just such a way.
I love the detail in that last panel.
Wait, this guy ISN'T a dead goose?!
There is a lesson there.
He's really having a blast!
The 'Yote knows how to parrrty!
There is some amazing artwork supporting Coyote's story here!

The best tricksters trick themselves
Not the first time Coyote outsmarts himself.
These last pages are stunning, both visually and storywise. Your coyote thread keeps getting better and better. Thank you for your work
Natural 20 in Bluff.
Treatise on method acting.
And he was never seen from again... wait...
... This turned dark pretty fast. Is Coyote at the court or telling Annie a story??
This prelude makes me want a Coyote cloisonné pin more than ever! Brilliant!
Method acting done right.
does coyote wish to consult with the rotd?
Looking like a classic Coyote story, in which the trickster himself is tricked. Coyote often harmed himself as much as he tricked others, equal parts sly and a fool.
You know this is just fantastic, don't you?
Coyote is a skilled method actor.
This could be a shabby goose story.
Don't huff your own guff, 'yotay!!
I see what you did there!
Well, you can't fool others if you can't even fool yourself ...
Lone goose wife had found another lonely goose husband.
I know people have identity crises when they play a role for too long, but this is something ELSE.
Trickster tricking himself. Just like Obi-Wan doing a mind trick to himself in front of a mirror :DD
Gosh, the time it must have taken to create those textures.
TWIST: Coyote is the sum total of "dead goose in a bush" He is also the bush, but that disguise was so good that he assumed he was just a dead goose.
Coyote doesn't waste time with trifling philosophical questions like how a goose corpse can think or feel.
*you played yourself gif*
This art is stunning btw
Love the art in the third panel, Tom!
Coyote, 0000 hours: I HAVE A BRILLIANT PLAN
Coyote, 0200 hours: I HAVE A BRILLIANT SOMETHING
Coyote, 0400 hours: I'M BRILLIANT
Coyote, 0500 hours: wait i forgot what i was doing what
Coyote, 0600 hours: OH RIGHT I'M BRILLIANT
W o w
You got tricked! Surf Wisely.
It happens to the best of us.
This comic is nice an all but how it is i find every part about the coyote a freakin masterpiece.
Rip coyote, fooled himself into thinking he was actually a goose corpse somehow still capable of thought. Just another day in the Forest...
I, too, often think of my goose wife.
I uh, guess this is a thing that happens to Coyote sometimes.
I hope he had goose life insurance.
THEORY: Coyote can't disguise himself as anything without teeth. Every disguise so far has been with teeth, including that of a clearing with strewn rocks for teeth.
Poor Goosewife. To be reminded of her rotting husband daily.
Very zen tanglely in the background there ^w^
This trick was so good, it even tricked coyote! What happens next will shock you! www.Aclickbaitwebsite.com
I love Coyote stories.
I love Coyote stories.
(He always relishes a reason to have himself a pity party, doesn't he...)
I'm new here I just finished the archives . Does anyone know when does this comic updates?
Thanks in advance.
Man, I knew Coyote was insane, but this, uh... really shows the exact degree of insanity.
I always love the artwork in your Coyote chapters. I love all of the comic, to be sure, but you reach a level of brilliance in these chapters that is breathtaking.
So the dead green elf dude was just a manifestation of coyote. And this whole time Jeanine was in eternal torment some sock puppet coyote made for her. Oh dear. This will not end well.
Do go on, Mr. Dead Goose...I mean Coyote. XD
It is so Tzeench of him...
And soon, the predator became the prey more literally than was expected.
I'd laugh if next page signaled end of chapter.
This is starting to sound like some folktale I've forgotten its origin of. Unfortunately, it's also starting to sound like Coyote is rubbing Annies's decisions into her face some more...
one of my friends did this with a DnD character once. h was a gnome bard. with a very high bluff check. he then used a potion of glibbness and somethign else to make his bluff check so high that he successfully tricked not only a whole cult, but their god as wel that he was its avatar. he lied so well that it became a reality. and even the gnome was convinced it was truth. XD
Thanks for the wallpaper. Looks awesome. =)
Oh dear. This is turning into a rather disturbing parable, but I can tell its application to the current story is going to be EVEN MORE disturbing. Fun times...
I was just reading about Antimony for a project and discovered that it can be obtained through the ore Stibnite.
I had a laughing fit.
Annie's full name is Antimony, and her mother's maiden name was Surma Stibnite.
Don't let the costume wear you, man!
Nice work on the art! Other people might have snuck in identical panels here, but not you. Look at that last frame!
Wow, great trick Coyote. That's really something.
Is that even possible? For a sentient being to trick itself?
The art is fucking incredible, just an excellent style! Can't wait to find out more of the story as well.
It took you six days to think of your wife!? Shameful! >:(
I'm glad we can comment on these updates, but it would be nice if we could engage in a discussion. I'd enjoy commenting on other peoples' comments, so we can share ideas. Right now, all I can do is hope I see whatever comment here that may be refering to this one.
I bet he is sharing this story to teach Annie a lesson...maybe that she had forgotten who she truly is behind what others have made her be for the moment?
Stelle - Updates are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. And Tom has never missed a scheduled update since I started reading quite a few years ago.
But wait, if you were a dead goose you couldn't think about your lot in life?
At the beginning, this was Coyote-telling-a-tall-tale.
And now, with that last panel, it's the myth of The Time Coyote Was The Goose In The Bush.
I have no idea (yet) why this myth propagated, what made it so important that people across cultures wanted to preserve it in their memories and tell it to their children, as a way of teaching them about life and the workings of the world.
But the art of that last panel tells me that that is what happened.
What if he was tricked onto thinking it was a trick?
