This scene made me laugh quite a bit. I am a bit surprised that Kevin didn’t notice sooner, considering that Bud was not particularly subtle, but I guess the target of the crush is always the last one to know such things.
I thought that was funny too. I make those kind of jokes with my wife all the time (married 34 years this upcoming February).
Personally, I appreciate it that Monica didn’t say something more X-rated. Lord knows, most other women would.
Maybe Monica has more class than most others? I know that I personally made the choice to tone down my use of profanity.
I don’t judge others who use it more, but once you don’t use it as much you really notice it more and it seems more coarse.
I concur. And I think that Monica knew that the goofy dingleberry was spoofin’ her.
I have to agree with Frith here. Most of the women I know who use profanity typically reserve those words for moments of genuine anger or hurt. Every other time they exercize their creativity and make stuff up to be silly.
I’ll have to write “goofy dingleberry” down for later use. 😛
Is goofy dingleberry worse than being a goober?
Only slightly. 🙂
Given the usual definitions of “goober” and “dingleberry”, yes, I’d say that it’s much worse.
One can call someone a goober and be endearing (at least, with some definitions of the word). I don’t think any definition of “dingleberry” I’ve ever heard is even slightly endearing.
I do believe that when Mr. & Mrs. Roid name their child Herman he will hear Dingle-berry quite a bit. He would probably like being called Goober instead.
On the subject of “Dingleberry” being endearing: my daughter’s g’pa calls her that. ‘Course, he’s deaf, so he calls her that at intense volume and I may be inferring the endearment just a smidge.
Hee, hee! Everybody should have at least one goofy something-or-other in their lives!
Wish we had some snow here in St. Cloud.
and here in leicester 🙁
And here in Seattle.
I know better than to wish for it in Texas. XD
Good god, Texans and amount of liquid on the roads can spell disaster. Never throw a half drunk soda out the window, you’ll cause a 14 car pile up. I’m from Michigan, unfortunately in Texas, and I just cannot help but nearly wet myself laughing at even if the slightest of morning dew is frozen on the road. Seriously, turn on the San Antonio news traffic report first thing in the morning on a cold day and you’ll hear of 45 minutes to 2 hours traffic jam cause these people don’t know how to f***ing drive!
Never throw a half drunk soda out the window.
You’ll cause a 14 car pile up AND get fined $500 for littering.
Don’t Mess With Texas. XD
You know it’s only a matter of time before we get that
snow and the whole thing comes to a crashing to a screaming halt.
Southern California is just as bad – any rain at all, and people are out crashing and burning left and right. Nobody gets the idea of “Slow Down, Leave more Following Distance”
The occasional hailstorm or ultra-rare snow (even though it doesn’t stick in the flat-lands and it’s gone in under an hour) and it’s even worse. Or a heavy fog and they’re still doing 75.
I literally try to stay home those days just to stay out of the “Blood Alley” carnage – or at least wait till the worst of ‘rush hour’ is over.
Heck, it’s nutty here in the Sooner State, where a lot of fender benders occur when even the slightest mist drifts throught the morning drive. One morning DJ used to call it Dumb Fog due to the jump in the traffic reports that resulted.
I’ve lived in San Antonio for thirty years now, and it’s amusing to see what people will attempt when the road ice over.
Ice? Frozen mist? HA! Solbet had it right the first time…”any amount of liquid“. The running joke as I know it goes a little something like this…
How do make bad drivers in Texas?
Just add water. 😛
Gotta love my state! 🙂
In Washington, even the most inexperienced driver can handle any amount of rain up until the point where you get passed by the occasional kayaker. However, you put any amount of ice on the roads and everyone is sliding all over the place like a cartoon character in a room full of banana peels.
In Dakota, we take whatever comes–wind, rain, snow, ice. But the first snowstorm of autumn is often not so pretty–because the warm ground means there’s usually a nice coating of ice under the snow buildup, and because everyone takes a day or two to get their snow-reflexes back.
But there’s still a certain number of numnuts out there going 75+ in an SUV on glare ice.
Or shining their brights into your rear view mirror from two car-lengths back when you are going 40 to keep from sliding on the ice. (And because you are being extra careful, because it’s kinda hard to see what you are doing, what with all the light in your eyes.)
My favorite thing to do to the tailgating dorks on 2 inches of ice: make them the hole in the donut.
Don’t try that at home, kids.
Since I’m leaving the country in a little over a week, I wish Toronto would hurry up and get some already too.
Had a few inches of the heavy wet stuff dump on us in northeastern Pennsylvania overnight. Almost all of it is gone by now. Didn’t even last long enough for a good snowball fight.
And his beard is black again. I think it’s good that he’s comfortable enough to joke like that with her.
No-shave November had leftovers 😉
The snow melted, see my post from yesterday.
His entire outline has gone black. Monica has been dating a photographer from the Plane of Shadow.
Hahaha!! Oh, Kevin…
You’re so awesome. XD
And, AWW… Monica looks so cute in the third panel!! XD
perfect answer to a ladies doubts 🙂
its been so long since i built a snowman i forget how long it takes to make 🙂 they seem to be making a work of art 🙂
Snow sculpting in innesota is an art. The winter festival features all sorts of ice adn snow exhibits. Some are really fantastic. Well worth the seeing and freezing.
Many years ago, in (very!), upstate NY (Potsdam), we had an annual ice festival the fraternities carved ice sculptures. It was my first experience with these sculptures and I thought the 15′ tall works were quite impressive.
However, they wouldn’t even make a footnote compared to the sculptures at the
Harbin Snow Sculpture Art Fair 2009 in northern China. Mr King has been documenting this event since 2003 and the pics are simply astounding. Many sculptures are over 100′ high and are massive and have exquisite detail. It is truly one for your bucket.
Oops, I meant to post the link to the Harbin Ice and Snow World 2009. There are actually three concurrent festivals at Harbin but my above comments applied to this one.
Squee! My favorite local Chinese food place has a cook from Harbin, and they put his pictures of the festival up all over the restaurant.
She walked right into that
Ain’t no fun if the homies can’t have none!
Hands up who didn’t see that coming? Anyone…? Anyone…?
Thought so. 🙂
I love the both of them but I really think Kevin and Bud would be a more interesting couple. I mean…poor Kevin seems to only be around when Monica is horny. Maybe he and Bud would be less 2D. Just sayin.
Monica doesn’t appear to be horny right now…and they’re building a snowman instead of making out…so I think it’s safe to say there’s more to their relationship than sex. 😛
A rare occurrence. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’d like to see more moments like this (although preferably less Calvin and Hobbs-ish). Just a fact Kevin and Justin are only really around for sex or moments when they are props in the girls’ drama. Only Alan really gets more of a role.
To be honest I like Kevin with Monica, but I wouldn’t complain if he was with Bud instead.
But that cannot happen without a whole lot of UGLY drama. First off Kevin and Monica would have broken up (he would NOT cheat, that’s just not how he works) (or how Bud works for that matter). Then if he and Bud got together, dear lord… it would complete claws-out cattiness between Monica and Bud.
It would just be ugly.
Well, not if it ended well. Not if Monica realized she wanted someone else or something. (Not that I ACTUALLY think this is a possibility.) There doesn’t have to be drama. Especially if M realized that it might be a good pairing. Been there. Done that. It’s not always about you when people you love develop feelings. 🙂
That’s true!! X3
It could be a totally smooth transition. I agree though, they odds of this happening are nearly zero.
Especially if you’ve seen the picture Paul just posted. XD
Who knows? His mind is a mysterious thing! (You can’t see it but I’m waggling my fingers in a mystical manner. 😀 )
Dear Wapsiverse, in order to quell drama and possibly help save the world, I will gladly take Kevins place. Serious times call for serious measures. And a jealous, pissed off, WMD packing Golem Girl is best left to get what she wants or a somewhat suitable stand in.
Yeah, you are really taking one for the team there…….
Way to think about the safety of the world. You’re so kind.
Awww, it’s adorable Jabber thanks for putting it up.
Where did you find the caption font? Link please.
It’s called ‘4 My Lover’. And is available
Try here instead…
gotta say kev. you’re treading on dangerous grounds saying things like that
He knows her well enough to be reasonably sure that there’s not more than one chance in ten she’d immediately poit him to a location 20 feet above the nearest sewage treatment pond.
You have to take some chances in a relationship, after all!
At least she didn’t poit a snowdrift on his head.
or the middle of the lake…
What’s wrong with a snowdrift in the middle of the lake??? ;^)
The middle of the lake on his head would be mean; he’d freeze solid!
I seem to recall Kevin waking up with a very naked Bud on top of him after a wild girls’ night out.
And why won’t my #$@%#$^ gravatar work?
Two possibilities: Wrong e-mail or 2) your picture was rated too racy for Wapsi Square’s comment section.
or possibly it’s a duplicate of someone who posted before you… I’m not sure how the Gravatar server handles duplicates
Yeah, but that was the result of a P.U.I. (Poiting Under the Influence).
Nothing happened and when he learned about all the supernatural stuff he realized she was just teleported there on accident. And by Monica if I remember correctly.
