LOVE the expression on the blond officer in both panels!
He is a very expressive chap, yes.
This is hilarious. I love it.
Long time Wapsi reader, first time commenter. (Been reading since the ‘Fermented Bananas’ strip.) Great job! Keep up the awesome work.
Bahahahahahaha! That look on Bud’s face in the last panel is hysterical!
It’s so good to see Bud actually having fun. And don’t tell me that this wasn’t part of her plan from the get-go.
For so long, Bud was the most damaged of the Golem Girls, but i think she’s also the one who’s going to come closest of the three to regaining her humanity – as much as she can, unless the Blue Fairy grants wishes in Wapsi Square as well as Disneyland…
That was just downright inspired.
Does anyone, right off hand, have the URL for the strip when Bud (rather more naive) went swimming in the middle of winter in a two-piece suit, and newspeople showed up?
That time she sort of improvised her response.
This time she appears to have planned this in advance … with great glee.
I remember her face planting into cement after a failed biking experience. Swimming in winter, I do not remember.
(and the next few days; Bud explains her rationale here:)
That’s the sequence.
Wasn’t that skating?
Starts at …
Yah – that’s where it actually starts.
I notice you’re referencing a different archive than throopw…
Well, that’s http://wapsisquare.com/comic/whatluck/
and if you look at the URL of he gif on that web page, it’s the same one from just above. So they’re the same archive, I’m just pointing at the wrapper with the “next” and “previous” buttons, instead of the raw image.
That is just bloody fantastic! I have really missed this sorta humor!
“Streak of light through the sky.”
Yup – there’s that ionisation track.
I call her dating blonde police officer!! That would be funny. Also, YES! Trapper hats ARE for crazy people!
AND LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS! VPL IS NOT FASHION! *end rant*
Whadaya mean, ‘crazy people‘?!! I got me three o’them things and I ain’t crazy! They keep my head warm, even with all that aluminum foil inside…
(“Psst, Pablo! Did Bud remember the aluminum foil liner?)
they aren’t leggings, they’re sweatpants. note the drawstring waist. =)
Come On, Paul … are you trying to kill us? with laughter?
Bud is Great!
Bet you will get all types of LOL’s, ROFL’s, LMAO’s – and what ever other letters others can think of.
Keep us laughing.
Keep Up The GREAT Work!!!
All I can say when looking at Bud’s hat and knowing she’s in Minnesota is, “Oh, yah, sum-un’s goin’ in the wood chipper for shure, you betcha.”
Too bad this wasn’t one state over, or I’d be sayin’, “Yah, dere, hey? Fer criminy cripes sake, dat one was a barn burner fer sure. Reminded me a bit of one a’dem Aaron Rodgers throws fer da Packers dere hey, aina?”
Well, Bud is not lying about the cat part; Brandi did witness Bud tossing what was left of the calendar machine at hypersonic velocity.
Actually Bud is being quite clever, believe it or not. With Bud acting all crazy and shit, the cops are just going to lose interest in the ramblings of a crazy person, turn around and leave without talking to anybody else. I am starting to wonder if it is Bud, and neither Brandi or Jin, who is the real brains of this bunch.
Are the Harvey nominations opening soon?
“If you can’t do something unnoticed, do it so they think you are a fool”–or a total wacko.
Dammit, I wasted my ‘this is why I luv Bud so much’ comment just a couple strips ago! Now how am I to properly express my adoration to her awesomeness here? Huh? HUH?!
Look what you do to me. Just… look what you do.
Bud has just become my favorite female character
I still love Kath though
Bud and Katharine need to get together.
They could own the Wapsiverse.
(Well, they’d have to cut Phix in for a piece of the action, i guess…)
Dont forget super strong Lakshimi!
WHY would it be so hard to explain the flash-boom as a bolide exploding in the lower atmosphere? Similar events are caught on security cams and home videos frequently. Granted, thise were INCOMING, not OUTGOING…..
By the way, the average speed of incoming metors when they hit the outer atmosphere is thirty-seven miles a second.
(Yes, my poor head is full of stuff like that)
Why should she attempt to explain what happened? Such might lead to pointed questions she does not want to answer. How much simpler to just say, “Yes, I heard the noise too. A big bang – do you have any idea what it was?”
the point is NOT to explain. The point is to get people to ignore it. She’s done a BRILLIANT job.
Bud’s expressions in all the panels are priceless..
Her first pose puts me in mid of Popeye, somehow.
Yeah, ^_^ I wanted her to look like she’s running really exaggeratedly awkward toward the officers. =)
Yup Got that.
I can see the elbows flying and the knees pumping so high that if she were Monica she’d do herself a mischief…
Well, you definitely nailed that – too bad I really can’t laugh out loud here at work…
With the possible exception of the secretary at the health spa, there’s not a young lady in the bunch – dead, alive or otherwise – that I wouldn’t love to hook up with. These characters are the distillation of win.
And in one fell swoop, Bud takes the trophy for craftiest character in the strip.
Classic… Bud. Love it.
Bill the cat, Bill the cat. Whooo!
Bring on Opus the Penguin reference too.
Someone call for me? Oh the other one.
OMG… I haven’t laughed so hard in a LONG time.
Okay. This was so funny it makes up for Monica not being stabbed to death.
Bud in the last panel + t-shirt = Happy me.
Just sayin’ =^_^=
WahHAhahahahahaha!! Sheer genius!! You can actually hear her galumphing along!!
Minnesota isn’t the only place with trapper-hatted ,wide-eyed wackolas – we gottem heer up in Ro Dylan too! D’axxents jus differnt.
Oh, I didn’t expect “Celebrity Deathmatch” commentator Nick Diamond to have a side job at Minneapolis P.D. …
Hehehehe, that’s so absolutely awesome! I needed that giggle this morning. Thanks Paul!
All’s I can say is, it’s a *rrrrreaalllly* good thing I was checking out the strip from home instead of work this morning…
More and more, Bud reminds me of that line from the Eagles: “Springtime, the acacias are blooming.”
I dropped in just after this posted, and after I stopped laughing, realized I could not say anything that would do it justice, so I closed the browser and went off to work.
I found myself breaking into a spontaneous grin every time the strip came to mind.
Thank you, Paul. This is one of the best cartoons I have seen in years.
I’d like to see “gallumphing Bud” image on a t-shirt!!! Awwwwsome! Such sheer,wild, unbridled glee!!!!!!
best. strip. ever.
BUD! BUD! BUD! BUD!
I especially like the pronounced canines that the Chimera girls have. This must be somewhat alarming to those who meet them. Especially when they greet you in a trapper cap.
Bahahahaha! This is PERFECT.
The strip made me laugh and therefore it made my day Thx Paul!
This tops “a few lines from MacBeth, and skipped away!”
She did a *little* bit more than just skip away.
Thanks. 1st time I have laughed out loud in months. I needed that!
Resolve to be easily amused. I now enjoy life so much more, now that I don’t EVER ask myself, “Is this sufficiently sophisticated humor for my elevated taste?”
The lovely Ms. Acacia reminds my soooo much of a certain Disney character, especially in the second panel …. Ee-hyuh! Gawrsh!
Uhhh, looks like Bud has raided my closet, I own everything she is wearing…
Triple Dog Dare you to wear it all together.
It’s loading on my facebook as we speak…
http://www.facebook.com/raniraqs?ref=profile#!/photo.php?pid=31186362&id=203002119&ref=mf I hope that works…
You might want to consider posting it elsewhere. Apparently one has to actually belong to that nonsense before one can view it’s member’s pictures.
If you go here (http://www.facebook.com/raniraqs) it’s her profile pic, and you don’t have to be a member.
Best Comic Ever!
Bud is the best. Love her so much!
That hat she’s wearing is priceless — with the ear flaps flapping as she runs. Interesting reversal on the standard alien sighting scenario.
Yeah it’s all about the “There’s gotta be something wrong with that guy” hat
Reversal? That’s how I view most UFO witnesses/abductees. At this point most cops would have had their guns drawn as well. Or, at least their hands on the grip with their fingers under the snap.
We’re a go-an to da zoo, yup yup yup!
Oh God, I do love Bud so very much! This strip is GREAT!
This has to be the single best panel I have ever seen on this strip. Not that the others were bad but this one just SHINES.
Okay – just thinking – how does Pablo intend to top this for tomorrow?
Bud could strip naked again, bending over and describing an alien anal probe, complete with visual aids. Just a suggestion. Naked, except for the hat, of course.
“…those nice young men in their clean white coats…”
That would take her out of the catagory of harmless loony, and result in her being arrested.
So wait, are the police going to want to interview her cat now as well?
Where can you buy hats like that? I wish to increase my reputation as a loony.
Here, if you want to spend a godawful lot of money on the real thing:
Amazon has similar hats for less than 10¢ on the dollar.
Oh! Oh! I want the one with the goggles!
My wife bought me one from LL Bean made with rabbit fur.
Ah, the Mad Bomber’s hat. Good quality for a decent price. The rabbit did not die in vain.
This, I like.
I am constantly amazed at how beautiful this comic is… Panel two is just breathtaking.
And we all know that cats are experts on EVERYTHING!!!
Back away from the crazy girl who hears alien space ships. Nothing to see here… Bud’s got the best way of handling it down pat.
Quite simply, Bud rocks
At least she’s remembering to dress for the cold weather instead of going out in the buff. (
i think Alison Hannigan would be a good voice actor for Bud
I think Allyson Hannigan would be a good actor for Bud.
Or Summer Glau or Eliza Dushku
Dude, I *love* Bud.
I love how Bud gets out of trouble by acting crazy
I’ve got to try that some time
Am I imagining things or has everyone missed the reference to Platinum Grit in Panel 2 so far?
The mustached officer’s expression KILLED me with laughter!!! (Who could blame him, eh?)
waaaait a minute. is the blond cop shelly’s new chew toy?
Don’t think so – i came her to check it. I think he’s too tall and he doesn’t have glasses – doesn’t Officer Buns wear glasses?
Would be absolutely hilarious if he found out his new squeeze hung out with the crazy girl in the trapper hat…
But Officer Cute Buns has the same nose. I’m voting for this being the same officer. He doesn’t have to wear glasses all the time.
maybe he wears contact lenses. and yes, i look forward to the hijinks that will ensue if this cop and shelly’s officer cute buns are the same guy.
and they WILL ensue. well. WOULD. cuz, HYPOTHETICALLY.
erm. IMPORTANT CAPITAL LETTERS.
Shelly’s beau has/had a partner with a moustache, as mentioned by Brandi while she’s giving Bud a hard time about harassing the cops. Bud claims that she doesn’t actually believe in martians and that they were golfballs when she first meets him along with Shelly in The Apex.
No doubt here that they’re the same.
She’s good at this!
It went Phbbbbbbbth-just like a balloon farting around the galaxy! ROTFLMAO
oh, I think I LOVE Bud :DDD
She seems very happy in panels 2 and 3 Having fun, isn’t she?:)
This is my absolute favorite strip of all.
Did anyone else notice she was wearing winter hat and boots with a short sleeve shirt?
