For some reason I’m really loving the little Band-Aid in this pic.
Remember the comment about getting her right foot forward from yesterday? She didn’t get the right foot far enough forward…
Fare thee well Dr. Custard. You creaminess shall be duly missed my frozen friend.
At least we can say Dr. Custard got his just deserts.
Yes I will pay for this one directly. clink clink
I scream in dismay. (*clink*)
Icee you guys still can’t resist the puns.
*got no cash, leaves a couple of bucks worth of aluminum cans that were going to be sold at the recycling center*
Well, what can I say? Puns a-mousse us.
*stuffs dirty laundry into Pun Jar*
You guys paying for that out of your slush-ee fund? 😀
Yeah, that’s a sure bet…
… and please, no wails and cries of anguish about it, GreyWolf… that would be a sore bay indeed from one such as you!
“Sundae, Crimson Mantis! SUNDAE!! Revenge is a dish best served COLD!! It shall be SWEET!!”
*clunk* That was my roll of laundry quarters.
What, no U2?
Heh! Good question… but we haven’t seen any vampires in the Wapsiverse, and they might be the only ones who would appreciate that particular confection.
Farvel to Carvel. *plink*
A sad time like this, and you people make puns.
That’s just cold.
Speaking of cold, Monica’s left hand got frostburned trying to find the last possible frozen custard?
I’m hoping she’ll at least give Dietzel a chance to eggsplain…
Welcome, Monica, to the dessert of the real.
Going to and fro, zen enlightenment says that you are better without the sweeties, even if their absence makes the heart grow stronger.
I’d like to say that these puns are sweet. I’d really like to.
Sadly, I cannot.
Yes, I’ll pay for that. [drops a dozen assorted Frozen Custard coupons for the cause.]
All you punners… yogurt to hell!
Hey. At least I didn’t make a comment about custards last stand, now did I.
Stuff a week old pair of socks I caught trying to make an escape into the pun jar. They were looking for a good home anyway.
Thee see, be wise. Yoghurting with us!
[does the pun jar want some empty popsicle/ice cream bar sticks?]
Life without custard is a Rocky Road indeed.
All this punning has put us past the boundaries of good humor, man.
*rattles pun jar*
Hey, the pun jar already has custardy of all our frozen confections.
Good freakin gravy … gone for two days and come back to find the poor pun jar in insulin shock.
You people have no shame.
No wonder I like it here. 😀
Don’t you mean by frozen fiend?
Heh heh heh, Revenge is sweet. Or would have been, if Dietzel hadn’t tossed out all of the frozen custard,
It’s Dietzel’s revenge for that costume. And his support to his mistress to getting in shape despite her weaknesses.
Unless of course, he bit the (icy) bullet for her and ate it for her.
Revenge and selfless in one go.
And the sad reality sets in.
Ah, the harshness of Reality.
Liking the coloring effects here… feels like the cold bleakness of a chilly dawn. After the day of stern resolution, the euphoria of acquiring the One True Sportsbra… it looks as if the moment of “Oh, God, I really have to go through with this now” has settled in, and the magnitude of the prices she’s set herself up to pay are becoming clear.
Her posture shimmers with reluctance, and the bandaid and what look like scraped knees convey the sense of “battles fought, and tougher ones yet to come.”
I think Monica needs moral and emotional support from her new exercise buddy, pronto!
(and apparently Dietzel’s prehensile paws were particularly participating in pitching pints of pretty tasty stuff!)
who said he pitched it? that guilty look implies that he disposed of it thru a much more enjoyable process…
Is he trying to look innocent, or rolling his eyes in exasperation?
More likely exasperation.
I am also likeing today’s artwork.
So, did Dietzel really throw it out? Or did he eat it? Seems to me he is trying to look pretty innocent.
Looks to me like he’s saying, “Oh, joy. More drama.”
I wonder how Paul can draw one of those montages of Monica excercising, set to a modern rock song….. ending with Monica discovering her clothes are fitting better…
Or she could learn how to weigh herself in kilograms instead, 1 kg = 2.2 pounds, to seen like she is loosing weight 🙂
Don’t dispair – you still have all those yummy baby carrots – but, oh, you appear to be out of ranch dressing, too.
Seriously, the best healthy yummy sweet – wrap a bunch of sweet potatos individually in foil with a ‘little’ butter or margarine – bake ’em off and keep in the fridge, un-foil, microwave, and enjoy the superfood!
(On your custard….(c8 )
but dont dispair!! you CAN get ranch dressing to go with those lovely carrots, add some baby tomatoes, and some tuna or shrimps to get the protein level up!! … 🙂
you can even make your own!! 🙂 🙂
2 words: Greek. Yogurt.
I never use sour cream anymore. And if you put fruit on it, it tastes like cheesecake. P:
I could see it filling the hole that custard left too.
Reali–no! Man, I was looking forward to lil’ miss sunshine treating herself a little better. 🙁 Oh please, dear Pablo, let her at least gain SOME healthier habits. I don’t want her to kick the bucket at 30 with high cholesterol or God-knows-what. Think of all the adventures we the comic’s fan base would miss! (Although, it would be rather realitistic that way.)
I think that was Dietzel’s intention, by ‘losing’ the custard… 🙂
That’s a pretty big freezer.
That’s the bedside freezer. The main unit rivals the local morgue… has its own generator in case of power outages…
Have you seen how much this girl eats? I wouldn’t be surpised if she has a walk in cooler down in her basment.
Too true- never hand her anything to eat, you’ll be the source of ‘fingerfood’.
Tomorrow’s strip… Monica says goodbye to her favorite sugary breakfast cereal.
“A Farewell to Charms”
(drops a sterling silver milk pitcher into the Pun Jar)
Nope. She’ll pretend to be british and say, ‘Cheerios Mate’.
Deposit a quart of milk in the jar. I have to as this makes me a cereal punner.
Has anyone starting a diet not had this reaction, inserting their own favorite snack food for the custard?
Not really. I never stopped eating my favorite foods, I just stopped eating as much of them, and exercised a lot more.
Starting? How about always…even after being on the diet for months (or more)? I have to schedule one or two “Treat Yo’self” days a month where I get to cheat and eat whatever I want…otherwise the diet won’t work (because I’ll rebel pretty hardcore).
Back in the late seventies, I heard of a woman who promised herself a non-scheduled bedtime snack of a scoop of ice cream IF she stayed on her diet the rest of the day. Ice cream was her favorite food. She never missed her ice cream and lost (I think) 180 lbs in something like 3 years.
Does that come under the heading of Just Desserts?
If she was battling a weight problem, it might be Joust Desserts?
If I could narrow my cravings down to one thing I can’t live without, that would be good…oh, and if the doctor hadn’t restricted my carb intake so severely to the point where I crave almost anything with fiber or sugar…
Last Treat Yo’self day was fish and chips with stout beers…next time it will be pesto pasta and frozen yogurts (to beat the summer time heat).
“Goodbye Mr. Chips”‘ said Monica as she threw out the Chocolate Chip Cookies. 🙂
Scraped knees and ban-aid must be leftover from her Volcano days.
One would think that the Crimson Mantis would be happier with the final defeat of her nemesis, Doctor Custard.
Final defeat? A nemesis such as Dr. Custard is almost never finally defeated… and certainly not this simply.
As Buffy said to Dracula, “I’ve seen your movies. You come back. You always come back.”
And with a final defeat comes a lack of focus and direction.
Heh. Dietzel’s revenge for the bumble-bee costume and disguised as a good deed too.
That is what you get for making him wear the stupid bee costume.
A moment of silence for lost friends, or at least dessert.
In unrelated news, Happy Birthday to Maark30! 🙂
In even more unrelated news, having discussed assorted non-Newtonian fluids just yestre, I was perusing a copy of the newest Scientific American, and came across an article noting that the non-Newtonian fluid magma may help indicate when a volcano will erupt–as it moves quickly, it tends to shatter, leading to even faster movement, more shattering, and culminating in an explosion.
Hmmmm. Might this mean that Monica’s discovery of the exploding island is directly linked to her new bra, in a non-Newtonian fashion?
or playing TAPS-ioca! or, DESSERT-ing your post! or…
