AHA! Backstory! The plot thickens, as the plotter squeeeezes the buns….
More like Backside Story there. hehehe
Aargh. now my teeth hurt.
Are you sure that is the -plot- that is thickening?
Now — is this backstory we’ve seen, or is this new backstory being described for the first time?
So yesterday was just foreplay?
Yeah, Okay then.
So, Officer T.B. has a name. Justin. So, it looks as though Shelly is just returning the favor. I guess this is her way of saying, “okay, I know you are interested in me, so lets cut out these intermediate steps and get straight to the point.”
Also, this cartoon is over 9,000! (sorry, it is the hair)
Over 9000! There’s no way that could be right, could it?
Holy hell but I feel bad for his ass…..
It’s the same idea as breaking a wishbone. Whoever gets the butock with the most officer attached gets a wish. I guess Shelly will win either way. Huzzah! 😀
On the other hand, poor Justin…
So that’s it! Shelly is using her Super Saiyan Squeeze!
That is so cute. I like this comic.
Looks to me more like he’s in danger of bottoming out.
Gonna have to put those buns back, they’ve been squeezed to pieces.
Okay, so, i suspect, Shelly actually *did* blow up her grill by genuine accident.
Officer Buns responded.
He liked what he saw.
He then signed up for Shelly’s kick-boxing class (did we know Shelly runs a kick-boxing studio?), pretending to be a clumsy nerd.
The Shelly found out who he was…
And she hatched A Plot.
First sentence should read “… a year or so ago, Shelly …”
Huh, I thought Shelly only did weight training. Where did this kick boxing knowledge come from? I do not think it was ever mentioned before.
Well, she’s a fitness instructor at Jacqui’s yoga studio, and i doubt that they only (or even primarily) do weights there.
that doesn’t work- when he came to the studio, she didn’t know he was a cop- the exploding grill couldn’t have happened before that.
two words . . . . BUST-TED
“There’s a new cop on the beat,
And I’m brining down the heat…”
If he knew her from the fitness class, why keep callin’ her Miss? Unless they’re both in on it and this is the opening volley of TWotS (The War of the Sexes)
He’s hoping she doesn’t recognise him in uniform…
Distancing language. ;3
Yes–covering his butt while on duty.
Except she’s already got that well in hand.
I hope this comic leads to Shelly starting to date. She hasn’t seen much action since the “incident” while bra shopping with Monica.
So it appears they both have been acting clumsy at some point as an excuse to be with the other. Though it seems she could have just waited for his next lesson to be up front about it all.
Also, at this point though, I believe Justin probably already has something straight between them. Unless the bun squeeze pain has taken the magic out of the moment.
Nah – she wanted to jerk him around a little for jerking her around.
Yeah, you’re right. That would explain her behavior and acting stupid.
Assuming she blew up her grill accidentally the first time, what do you think happened next? Did she blow up her grill intentionally the next year without meeting him in between or did he sign up for her class before that? I’m thinking he didn’t sign up for the class until she blew up her grill a couple of times, but I’d like to think that Shelly figured him him out before she started blowing up her grill intentionally.
I think this is only the second time it has happened (and the only time on purpose). I believe she was fecitious about it being a yearly thing, as if it had happened several times before.
she’s a Justin fan
with a daring plan
trying to slyly land
a date with the man
Well, we knew that Shelly got herself training so that she could be a teacher at Jacqui’s yoga studio, but now we’ve also found out that Shelly also teaches some kickboxing (which she more or less insisted be a part of the studio when it was being built…..) as well……
See, this is what was confusing me about some of the above comments.”My kickboxing studio” could simply be the same studio that Shelly attended, rather than being a studio run by her. Likewise, the instructor is also a separate person. At least, that’s how I read it.
It’s not, “You’ve used this same trick before on me,” but rather, “I watced you use this trick before on my kickboxing instructor.”
Curse you ambiguous phrasiology!
Well, if Shelly was just another student at this kickboxing studio, would she have access to his registration? I would think that information would be primarily for the instructor.
…You’re right. It can be read that way.
On the other hand …”Back at work, I call your work number from your registration.”
If Shelly isn’t staff, how did she get access to the form with the number?
As an aside, note that Shelly is no longer wearing the scars of the portal cloth ….
I think the ‘scars’ were more the places where she had tanned around the portal ink.
She could be staff for weight training, but not kickboxing, in theory. I don’t think Shelly would have come on to him like that if he had been trying to get a different instructor’s hands on him, though. Besides, she called it “my kickboxing studio”. I think she probably added kickboxing to what she was teaching.
Shelly was looking pretty tanned when she displayed the ‘scars’. I doubt she would use a tanning booth, but the characters were still wearing warm weather clothing, so it could have been a natural tan, I suppose. Winter weather started between when Bud threw the squished time machine into the sun and the police arrive to investigate the “boom”. Maybe the 911 system was overloaded and there was a delay. 😉
Exactly what I thought, fatuncle… she says “Back at work”, implies that as a staff member she would have access to class members records, even if she is not involved in kickboxing.
Plus, it seems a natural outgrowth of this sequence of events:
Once again, Miss Shelly…great biceps! I’d like to see a full flex.
Yes . Ahem , very “gripping” indeed .
The last two strips really made me think that Shelly had been body-snatched by a Bimbo demon and that I would never be able to read WS again. Thank goodness I looked again…
So, Shelly found another Owen, didn’t she?
Shelly DON’T! If I’ve learned anything from this comic its that a new path in a character’s love life will spell disaster for another character… On second thought, if we get Shelly in a one piece bathing suit it’ll be more than worth it.
Shelly’s previous paths appear to have chosen other travellers, though. Methinks she’s had all the celibacy she can take, and then some.
One-piece?? C’mon, a BIKINI! So we can see some abs!
Justin now has Shelly right where she wants him. It wouldn’t take much for him to become a very, very lucky boy.
Play your cards right, officer. And be nice to her.
My best guess is that Shelly blew up her grill accidentally a few years ago and Justin responded. They liked each other, but were too awkward to ask each other out. So Shelly started blowing up her grill intentionally and Justin always volunteered to take the calls to her address. They probably suspected what each other was doing, but pretended otherwise. Then Justin found out where she worked and signed up for her kickboxing class, but Shelly didn’t recognize him out of uniform. The next time she saw him in uniform, she realized that they were the same person. That gave her the confidence to confront him this time, but she is also keeping him off balance.
They have both been acting helpless as a excuse to be with the other. Whoever wasn’t in the helpless role was probably trying to act professionally distant.
That awkwardness is definitely reminiscent of Monica’s first few encounters with Kevin…
Smart, Sexy cookie.
She thinks she’s giving him a taste of his own medicine…but the two-handed grab is definitely over the top…is this borderline assault of a police officer? Even if he secretly might be enjoying it??
It aint borderline, in the real world it would be sexual assult, period, officer or not. Doubly bad as he is on duty and responding to official police business. If he wasn’t in the mood for all this she could end up on the sex offenders list. Which shows how stupid that list is and how easy it is to end up on it.
There’s a Blondie song, from before “Heart of Glass”, when they were big in England and almost unknown on the side of the pond.
The BBC had/has a policy about things they won’t say on the air, and Certain Words in song titles are Right Out.
Hence, for instance, it refused to play the Monkees’ song Randy Scouse Git (a title suggested by John Lennon, BTW), unless it had an alternative title the DJs could use. So the song’s full, official title is “Randy Scouse Git (Alternative Title)”. Likewise, “Pogues Mahones”, Gaelic for (approximately) “Kiss my arse”, became just “The Pogues”.
And so the Blondie song is now called “X Offender”: it begins “You read me my rights and said ‘Let’s go and nothing more…”, and says how when she gets out, she wants to “perpetrate love” with the cop…
It’s been running through my head ever since Shelly started this romp…
What I would give to be Justin there.
Looks to me like the grill won’t be the only thing to blow up around here, eh?
Haha! So called it back on 04/01/10. This cop’s got a thing for Shelly!
“Wait a minute, how did Officer Buns get a “report of a blast in the area” then? Maybe the stalker has become the stalkee? “What a twist!” ”
Though knowing my Luck with predicting the Wapsiverse, this will blow up in my face by the end of the week. (>^_^)>
My money is on officer Justin Buns having a Mrs. Buns back at home… or given Shelly’s physique… perhaps a Mr. Buns at home? Now that would be deflating.
That was SO. HOT. The boy has better hang on – it’s going to be a bumpy night.
It looks like he found a detective.
i be seeing too much of wrong. 1) justin wears glasses, i also wear glasses. when i do highly vigorous activities i will remove them. justin probably removed his for his kickboxing sessions. when my glasses are off my face i get clumsy. 2) getting felt up by a semi hot chick is not what happens when an exercise professional professionally molds a learners balance (positioning the body through hands on muscle and structure manipulation). ——- shelly is being used by her emotions. sure, her actions are calculated but they are in response to what she perceives as a betrayal. justin participates clumsily in a kickboxing class. justin does traffic directing smoothly. shelly cannot make sense of the paradox. this is the betrayal she FEELS. [[if you saw me downhill skiing, i would be graceful. if you saw me kickboxing, i would be clumsy.]] ————— anybody can throw a punch in anger. just swing your hand at a target. HOWEVER, deliberately thinking through a punch as an action to achieve a certain reaction can cause clumsiness to occur. just making a punch motion is not a punch. a punch is when a hand accelerates towards a target at an explosive velocity. punching air will make the puncher appear clumsy as there is nothing for the punch to transfer its velocity to. the velocity will bleed off when the hand reaches the arms fullest extension and starts pulling the body along, this is off balancing giving rise to the appearance of clumsiness.
Shelly never said she got that close in class.
There are contact lenses, and glasses designed to stay on during even violent action.
Anyone who’s completed a police academy knows a heck of a lot of dirty fighting and certainly doesn’t qualify as “someone who’s never thrown a punch in his life”.
ah, yes, contacts. i forgot about them in my posting. sorry. i dont use them and tend to forget other people do. heh, heh. i even forgot about sports glasses and have a pair of my own! again apologies. ———- i must have been used by my emotions. ———– it would be nice if i could edit my prior rant.
About SHelly getting in trouble for assault – wonder how Officer Buns’ superiors would like a stalking complaint against him…
This is Shelly. just say yes
You won’t regret it
Stare in awe people! Shelly is using the rarely seen “Whipple Maneuver.” We may never see its like again.
Seductive Shelly is scary lol Cute but scary.
Gripping….XD. She doesn’t put up with BS, does she?
MAN! Shelly’s on the rebound, and then some! Just lookit that ass grab!
And the plot sickens…Shelly’s bad. Bad, bad, bad. But then, she hasn’t really had anyone for a while now, IIRC. Maybe she’s just jonesing for something that doesn’t run on batteries.
