Kinds of icing

This might be because I spent my entire life in aviation and rarely in a kitchen, but I actually think the difference between the two types of structural icing is easier to explain for me than the difference between frosting and icing, let alone where cream cheese belongs in this equation. On a plane you can only get clear ice, rime ice, or a combination thereof. Of course, then there is induction icing on your carburetor or instrument icing, which I think Chuck was after initially with his question.

But I am very impressed with Chuck in this one. Not only does he know a bit about icing, he really seems to know about cooking and cream cheese as well.

    You might want to consult Hans on that matter!

    He might actually be a better cook than pilot. It would make perfect sense, wouldn’t it?

    @Franck: yes of course. Seeing Chuck’s performance as a pilot, I cannot imagine any trade or job or activity that he wouldn’t be better at. He could just as well make a better poet, or tailor, or computer programmer.

    I think something broke in the website update script. No matter which comic I go to, the “next” button is disabled, and the “last” button goes to the “Good Oil” comic. The archives are fine.

    (I’d missed a few updates and was trying to catch up, only to find that I can’t.)
