So which is it, Monica? Reptile or amphibian because you can’t be both.
Yes she can! When a gecko stands in the puddle of her tears he will be..(said in a deep voice, quickly)…Knee Deep!
Pun Jar, now!
Maybe she’s a marsupial.
Figured it out after sleeping on it. She’s a Pokémon
Are you sure she isn’t currently sitting on a pokey-man?
The pun jar shall eat well this night!
I get the feeling we’ve all just been put into our place.
Where we belong. In court. Cue back ground theme music, banjo plinking…Froggy went a courting.
She did ride! Muum Humm, Muum Humm
now dont all you’se dissenters feel ashamed at saying ‘gross’ and ‘ewww’ … now follow the plan mistah paul has laid out for HIS webcomic and wish you could have a tongue like that…
You said a mouthfull!
.Yes I did donate for that one.
Monica’s not a real person so no, I don’t feel bad for being surprised/grossed out by Paul’s representation of her own graphic imagination. It’s an exaggeration of her insecurities. Apparently she’s just as uncomfortable about the idea of it as some of the readers.
It wasn’t so much the length of her tongue as the “continuing to kiss him after he had been asphyxiated” that seemed off. If the man you’re making out with is near death and you fail to notice, something’s very wrong.
LOLOLOL I’ve been on the receiving end of those kinds of makeouts before. XP
eh?? what really happened?? she imagined it, but when she tried, she muthelled ithh upfth??? 🙂 🙂
it looks like he still loves her though.. <3
Kevin’s face in the last panel produced much squee-age. 🙂
Don’t guffaw, Kevin, for Blog’s sake, DON’T GUFFAW! It will be the last time in a long while you feel like guffaw-ing.
I like that word.
Methinks he has an idea or three of his own on how to spend the rest of the afternoon…
Cheer up Monica, with a longer than usual tongue, you can eat ice creams faster, and lick stamps faster too….
… clean your eyebrows while your hands are full…
Clean her eyebrows? With that tongue, she could *groom* them! And style her hair, while she was at it …
OK, I actually pictured that in my head and it made me giggle like a little boy so I have to stop now …
Oh! Like this then…
Ummm, well, if you say so!
Monica dear, he doesn’t seem to mind.
Me thinks dat we is getten ta on o dem pie-ko-logacal breakthroughs. Getten to the undershorts of the matter, if ya get my meandering.
Geez girl, take a chill pill. So what if you’ve got a tongue that would make Gene Simmons green with envy.
yeyah! and *every* girl wants a partner with that kind’a tongue…. 😛 😛 🙂
“Gecko Girl”:Can always sell car insurance!
Go to the deli and get some tongue.
Shakes the pun jar.
When you deliver a line like that don’t forget the cheese.
Yes. A fine stinky Limburger or Liederkrantz.
He can’t hear you Monica. He’s too busy picturing all the things that tongue can do to a man, and all the blood is rampaging way waaaaaaaay too far south to keep the ears functioning. 😀
I’ll be in my bunk.
It’s amazing when someone doesn’t understand when they have something that is incredibly desirable.
Why didn’t my Gravatar show up?
double check your email address.. 🙂
I didn’t have an image uploaded for my Gravatar account. Took care of that.
Funny how a life time of being tormented and humiliated for a unique desirable trait makes people who have them not appreciate them.
At least she hasn’t been driven to the point of doing something drastic like a tongue reduction but that is probably only because of her fear/hatred of hospitals is stronger.
Any help for non native english speaker…. What does she effing say ?!?
“This is who I am! I’m stuck with this! All those years of speech classes, and I’m still a bull frog!”
Just say it with your tongue sticking out.
I didn’t get the “All those years of speech classes,” :-/
“This who I am! I’m stuck with this! All those years of speech classes, and I’m still a bull frog!”
But Monica, there are advantages to being a Gecko Girl. For instance, you can save money on you car insurance…
Can climb sheer walls! Catch flies in mid-air!
Monica in an iridescent green skintight jumpsuit would be quite cute 😉
Then I saw item 3 in http://www.urbandictionary.com for gecko. I’m obviously not keeping up with the zeitgeist any more…..
I looked ‘gecko’ up also. I don’t think Kevin need do that to Monica because : 1. It sounds painful and B. Kevin wouldn’t treat M that way. (I think hes gonna say the “L-word”)
I’m fairly sure that by the 8th grade her tounge wasn’t her biggest attribute.
Now I feel bad about that half frog comment I made Friday. 🙁
Monica, you’ve got to get used to the concept that he _likes_ “who you are”.
To most guys, bullfrogs and gekos are _cute_.
Y’know, I just realized – Michelle Trachtenburg would be perfect in the live-action movie. Except for the height. And the bustline. And the not being Latina.
Well, okay, maybe not “perfect”, after all. “Stunt tongue”, maybe…?
Dammit, screwed up the link.
See comment below.
Hey, I’m never lost!
…it’s just, sometimes I’m not sure where I am…
Monica should learn how to climb walls, then she can be Gecko Girl, the super heroine!
At least it’s not a snake tongue…that would be creepy. 🙂
Silly Monica…everyone has to have one thing that makes them uncomfortable about themselves…and 90% of the time the people who love us don’t notice or don’t care. 🙂
Hear Hear !
It’s no Big Thing, so to speak. It’s not even obvious except at times like this. If she wants to claim an animal, I think a Hummingbird would be fitting. Small, fiesty, energetic, can consume mass quantities, the whole tongue thing, and amazing pectoral region that gets the business done.
Awww. Now I feel bad for her. But I’m still envious of him.
Next comic Monica gets herself a tongue ring …….. multiple times!

This one is pretty good, too.
yeahhh that looks like my phone after this weekend. sucker fell from my pocket as i was getting out of the truck (sweet truck, has been lifted some so it was about a 6 foot fall) and hit face first on the driveway.
would you believe it was literally a week old? *headdesk*
So things get awfully large on her side… Her son is gonna be thrilled…
I love the sympathetic look he has on his face.
Gecko girl was my superhero persona when I was a kid.
That first panel is so sad. I can just imagine the teasing she endured as a kid.
It’s sad the things that were said by us while we were children can so heavily effect us 20-30 years later. Things sad by mean spiteful children can still ruin our sense of selves when we are the ages of having our children baffles me cause I too am effected by it.
my feelings on the whole affair these days are how much of a moron I was for letting it get to me. granted I would have ended up with more black eyes than I can count but it would have been worth it. I was into Ghandi’s teachings back then in the belief that doing otherwise would have made things worse… reality was they got worse anyway. as you say, it still affects me now. the thing that urks me the most is I’ll probably spend another 10 years undoing damage done 20+ years ago… but as they say those are our formative years.
If ever there was a moment to give her a kiss this would be it… maybe a slip of the tongue while he’s at it… if he can.
She needs a kiss! Looks like she’s going to get one.
Hyperglossia = HUGE ASS tongue
