Let a chest bump but more giggly.
Like dammit *Like*. Stupid auto-correct.
Make a poem about it. That way we can claim it’s for Butter or Verse.
Sorry don’t have enough money on me to pay for that one.
Oh, trust me… one way or another, you will pay for that, or somebody will spread you all over the parquet floor 🙂
Yes. Unaccompanied puns are bad enough, but when they come in verse . . .
I’m the most upset that I didn’t think of it first, of course.
Yup… especially when the scene being commented on, is such a nice re-verse view.
(Dave, I think we may have gotten away without paying for that series of puns.)
Yes, margerinally better.
The pun jar…
…it’s watching you, Dave. And Bmonk.
. . . with hungry eyes??
Uh oh, zacharaiaha, you’re in a jam now!
An ex golem and a busty nerdette,
on a plan to explore both were set,
bumping butts, squeezing boobs,
like a couple of rubes
’till they giggled and squee’d off the set…
There was a young (?) golem named Jin
Had a demon that thought SHE would win!
But someone named Bud
Said “Enough of this crud!
Now Jin is more normal again!
While sauna’d, massage’d with toweled hair,
M said to Kim, “I declair,
I now take a stand
to plan on a plan
and get our cold butts out of here”
So rather than let it all dangle,
they plotted to try and untangle,
their collective force, and plot them a course
to a sandbar in the Bermuda Triangle
I see yer limrick and raise you a doublet thereof
But Jin said, :Now wait just a minute,
“For your sandbar has diesel oil in it!
“One way or the other,
“We must find another,
“And that is the way we will win it!”
So M thought a bit and replied,
“We really need someplace to hide.
“Some place nice and warm,
“Where prying eyes don’t swarm.
And where we can all tan our hides!”
With Stinky did Jin then consult
regarding the sandbar’s great fault,
asking “Is there another?”
Said Stinky, “Oh Brother-
I’ll show you one made of basalt,”
He led them a short hop away,
to a freshwater lagoon by a cay
with old pirate loot
and trees bearing fruit
the girls said, “At this place we’ll stay!”
So next time yer caught in a pickle,
here’s a thought fer yer noggin to tickle,
don’t go flip yer lid,
jest consult with a squid
go give him a call- it’s yer nickle!
Brain. Is. Bleeding.
I bow to the master! Very good, Sgt! There are still thoughts floating around in my otherwise-empty skull, and the weekend is young, but I dunno that I can top that.
I have to admit, I opened the site with fear today as I had already herniated my pre-frontal lobe with that last triplette. Good show there David- not often I encounter another Limrickian of worthy note- a single and a doublette in rapid sucession is FAR beyond the average capacity. Y’know, the whole pile strung together with minor editing actally plays rather well, don’t you think?
the Old Sgt.
It does all fit together rather well. And it was fun. Sometimes the words just seem to flow, and other times it’s like trying to herd cats.
BTW, I’m still trying to thinque of something, but the cat hair is making me sneeze.
Sounds like a plan!
Sounds like a government aency requesting a study on the fesibility of asking a question to determine if a problem exists and warrents looking for a solution prior to an inquest about structuring a working group for an outline of the concept. Will it ever get done??? NO! It’s an excuse for a junket to the day spa.
Aha. Sounds like you worked in government, it does…
It’s not just governments. Try working with Italians or the French sometime.
Capito. I lived in Naples for about 18 months…
DJ-Well I guess trying to talk sense to an Irish Woman who has already made up her mind would be much the same. You talk, they no listen.
I love it when a plan comes to get her!
Maybe we’ll get more story, less fluff next week.
Not that I mind fluff for fluff’s sake, but this was just confusing.
Pretty art of the girls in panel one though.
I understand your feelings SOB.
But in all fairness, it can’t all be doom and gloom and dire portent for everyone in the Wapsiverse. There has to be some merriment and mirth with a smidgen of frivolity to balance it all out.
I think you need to reevaluate your abbreviation for ShadOBabe, just sayin’.
LOL!! What S.O.B?
Nah, I know. ShadOBabe is my screen name all over the internet. It’s pretty much and inside joke with me at this point.
I even signed my I.D. card on DeviantART “S.O.B.”
Yeah, I thought it was one of those inadvertent unfortunate occurrences and Stigmartyr762 didn’t realize the result of abbreviating your name. If you’ve accepted it, cool, I don’t care, I just thought it was funny and I pointed it out.
I admit I’m lazy when it comes to typing out full names here. Its easier for me to abbreviate. Especially if its O’ dark squirrely and I’m staring at the screen all bleary eyed.
If I’ve overstepped myself then ShadOBabe has to do is tell me to stop and I will.
A bit off-track, but I’ve always wondered how it came to be we use SOB for that particular phrase. Following the normal rules of anagrams, it should be SB, SoaB, or SOAB – “of” and “a” are both in the same class of words so they should be both omitted, both lower case or, for clarity, both capitalized.
But include one, not the other? The etymologist in me wonders how that happened.
But this is a cliffhanger: we have to wait several days to find out whether their plan to begin to plan about making a plan is feasible.
Indeed! This is February, of course, home to Valentine’s day, soooo….
Last week: Shelly and Justin bond.
This week: Monica and Jin bond.
Next week: Owen and Lakshimi?
Yes! Yes! We’ve gone far too long without seeing my favorite mismatched couple!
Talking about mismatched couples. I’m curious as to how Shelly will react to the new perky Jin?
Monica and Jin were at least able to find common ground over a cocktail or six. Shelly and Jin reacted like bases and acids with other. Down right hostile.
At the same time there is a chance that this little interlude is nothing more than a red herring.
There have been plenty of instances where it looks like there’s a major plot bunny at work, but they don’t go anywhere. It’s a red herring. It’s a little bit of nothing fluff that occasionally happens in the day to day lives of M. and the gang.
Monica finding the first sandbar was bit fluffy too and look where that got them. Jin’s partly “human”, Shelly’s now a sphinx and the sandbar got blown to pieces.
And, look at what happened when Monica simply went out for a nice cup of coffee. An ordinary Caffeine Moment led to an “Aw, crap, what now??”, tales of a bar fight with air-guitar commentary, a sphinx/demonbarista confrontation, a talon-shredded punching bag and boyfriend, a series of long-overdue personal revelations with aerobatics and a hopeful outcome, and the first actual golem-blush we’ve ever seen!
By that standard, this fluffy little day-spa outing is as likely as not to instigate enough turmoil to overturn a major government, or perhaps boil Lake Superior and make a whole lotta soup.
Hardly the first golem-blush!
Don’t know if that one’s the first, either…
To the best of my knowledge, It’s the first time involving a bikini.
Loving the illumination into Jin’s new up-beat personality.
Hmm.. I gather the “winterhater-girls” are getting far too used to winter, and only use it as an excuse to be pampered in spa’s..
Otherwise.. how hard could it be to poit to a warmer place?
Can’t blame ’em though. Having oodles of money? Hah!. “call me at “Manly Spa for rich spoilt dudes” 😀
Oh, and great to see that Jin finally dares to be friends with someone again.
She more than deserves it. Of ALL the Wapsi-crew, she sacrificed the most to right a wrong.
I second that.
Also, it seems that Shellinx got to bond more with Bud these days, and M maz become more chummy (is that a word?) with mortal Jin.
Dynamics change within groups of friends, it’s nice to see it works in wapsiverse, too.
I think the girls will be just fine, ’till the plot drops more drama on them then it all goes crazy again.
But poiting to a sunny, warm place–if they had something accessible in mind–is not nearly as good as having that reminder while getting to the spa of just why they need to get to the beach.
yes… and *someone* needs to do the massage, apply oils, provide towels….. 🙂
I get the feeling that you will suffer the duty, if you really must volunteer. 😉
They might be “winter haters”; but at least Monica’s got an excuse.
After all, the snow in her area seems to take perverse (or not so perverse) pleasure in ruining her day.
*giggles* Butt bump. How cute.
Ladies, no time to stop inside the Cerberus Club for a drink? That’s a shame.
Jin’s probably not allowed back in there. Their insurance can’t afford it.
Dude… Jin probably OWNS the club… how else would the bouncer know to make the comment about them having a bad day would have to be a REALLY BAD day? as well as his familiar attitude with them when they brought Monica in for the first time. that whole “she’s not with US, WE’RE with HER” line implies they’re on “The List” and get in whenever they wanted to.
… because they’re regulars?
Seriously, all the smalltalk the bouncer made was normal of any bouncer. He recognized the GGG as club regulars, and given their personalities at the time of that incident (pre-sobering, so the trio were constantly plastered, giddy, and horny) those comments were a fair assessment. Daren made similar comments about Bud, as did Kevin before Bud broke the masquerade.
I’m glad to see the Cerberus Club again.
Me too! (even if it is only the exterior)
I like these little reminders that Paul takes his world-building seriously.
And now, the gravity of Jin’s condition will sink into Monica!
Monica: “Wait a minute… I moved you. Usually when I bump into one of you three, it’s worse than running into a brick wall.”
I think that’s the main takeaway for this week. Jin’s mortality is a good and healthy change, and Monica has witnessed it firsthand.
Here we see Jin making fun of having to make plans. This her well-deserved retirement, and if she wants to spend it at play, in danger, or a mix of the two, is as much her call as it was M’s G’pa’s. (Aaron as someone they have in common will likely be readdressed someday– that’s something to look forward to that will be squee-free!)
And we now know from this week that there are twelve triangles around the world, a kind of dodecahedron of porous magic– echoed here by the pentagon logo of the Cerberus Club: The five-sided plane being one face of the twelve-sided solid.
Riddle me this….
Figure a Great Circle on the globe that intersects both the center of the Bermuda Triangle and Minneapolis. Their angular separation compares to the angular separation of the centers of two faces of a dodecahedron how?
(Yeah, it’s not REALLY a riddle….)
If I understand the question and if I remember my nearly-failed geometry/trig class… aren’t they the same angle?
I think it is, in fact. That would make MSP one of the wierdness zones and explain – well, Wapsi Square.

— Underworld. “Dirty Epic”
So they have confirmed that they want to make a plan to look for an island? Sounds like they still have a lot of work to do before they get there… ;-__- I want them in bikini’s now though…
My cute meter is pegged and I don’t care!
Have to wonder… for two such cold-adverse women, to have spent a good portion of the day getting properly spa-toasted, and to have then gone back out into a Minneapolis winter in such short skirts…
… is that a truly epic act of heroic defiance of the weather, or just colossal foolishness? Maybe both all at once?
Definitely cute, in any case!
But don’t you know that, after sauna, the ideal is to run outside naked and roll in the snow?
This is just the closest they can get in the Twin Cities without risking arrest. For loitering, probably.
Y’know, you are completely correct! Any cop would decide that it was sheer poetry and verse, to see those two walking through the snow, naked as jay-bards!
If they go out neckid as jaybirds into a Twin Cities winter day with snow, pretty soon they would be two blue jays.
[I’ll pay for that one! . . . Clink, clank!]
Yeah, but after a sauna or sweat, you’re supposed to do the big polar-bear cooldown before you dry off and get dressed. This actually shocks your body and then stabilizes your temperature… you lose some of the excess heat you’ve built up, and then your peripheral circulation restricts itself and preserves the remaining heat in your body core.
If you don’t do this sort of proper cooldown, and just get dressed, you can end up sweating a lot in your clothes, and then end up being dankly chilled… not a wonderful sensation, and it undoes a lot of the benefit of the sauna.
On the other hand, the thermally induced vasoconstriction via a cold water plunge can spike your blood pressure for a few seconds. Like to 300/200 or thereabouts, or so I’ve read. And that’s the sort of time you discover you’ve had an aortic or cerebral aneurysm all these years.
I got sympathy cold shivers on the first panel !!!
I look at the bottom panel and I hear Nancy Sinatra singing:
“These boots are made for walkin’.”♫
I once heard Crispin Glover sing that, and it made me hallucinate.
I’ve liked the song for a while. I even had to play it on air a time or two. But I watched that clip and all I could think was, “Couldn’t they back the camera up a foot and tilt a little so her feet aren’t cut off? It’s a song about BOOTS!” …My RTF indoctrination is showing.
It’s nice to see Jin looking happy.
I smell a new long-term arc coming, like the one that just finished turning Jin semi-human again…
Prediction: Whilst island hunting they find the not so rare, not so elusive “drama bomb” and a whole mess ensues. I kid, but seriously, I expect some mythical thing to show up on one of the islands they check out.
Maybe they will find Euryale’s nephew Pegasus.
I just read an article for a class as homework, and we’re supposed to come up with critical questions on te topic. The article’s author failed to prove her foundational material in the article’s beginning, and I can’t get past it.
So: how do you go from showing a segment being drawn from a population to saying that the segment has nothing to do with the population from which it’s drawn??
Yeah, nothing to do with the comic. But you guys are smart.
It depends on what was defined as the population for example – 100 Library users – the population of the library is only those users who use printed material – 10 users only use the library computers – Those 10 computer users are a segment of the population that us nothing to do with the population from with it was drawn. With out having access to the article you are reading best example I can give you. Hope it helps
