Simulated Sneezles – Jinji and Meuka’s Fake Cold Experiment

A sequel to A Snotty Souvenir!, which also serves as a partial rewrite of his older story Mucal Mischief, the concept of Simulated Sneezles actually came about during the development of the former comic – when Jinji got the idea of having Meuka as a companion to help him pull off the experiment successfully. Over several weeks, Jinji would discuss ideas with Kumada Panda and begin constructing a plot for what would later turn out to not just be Jinji’s snottiest prank yet, and the first ever sequel to an “Alternate Universe” comic in Jinji’s history, but also Jinji’s longest comic story to date – a whole twenty pages!

Simulated Sneezles Page 01
One of the many subjects studied by Jinji in his spare time is the human body, as Jinji wants to gain a greater understanding of mortal beings and ensure that his pranks and tricks never cause actual harm. To this end, one of the many books Jinji reads regularly is "Diseases of the Human Body", allowing him to recognise the many ways a human can fall ill and the common causes, allowing him to help a human in need and prevent further harm.

We join Jinji on one such night, as he begins to read a page on the Common Cold. Jinji becomes intrigued about the idea of nasal mucus as a transmission method, and decides he needs to learn more about snot and how easy it is to spread. Jinji starts thinking about performing an experiment to find out, but realises that he lacks knowledge he needs to make the experiment accurate. Suddenly, Jinji realises he knows the perfect person to help!

Soon after this, Meuka returns to his own realm to terrorise Neopets once again; while Jinji, with the help of his fellow Ghosts and an unfeasibly large quantity of tissues, eventually manage to get the basement completely cleaned up. After removing Meuka’s rubber nose from his face, Jinji returns to his room and secretly hides it in his drawers again, just in case another opportunity arises for a snotty prank in the future… Then again, this is all an alternate universe, so maybe none of this really ever happened in the first place? Kekekeh…
