Ut oh. So she doesn’t know Justin’ nor his relation to Shelly.
I can see this one coming, I think.
Brandi doesn’t; Bud might. But if Bud is intentionally trolling Shelly’s boyfriend it means her ‘crazy lady’ facade could be exposed at any social gathering, so I’m guessing neither of them know that “that nerdy cop” has already found a silly woman he likes.
See that coming from a mile away – or, in my case, about 198 miles away.
i wouldn’t bet yet, Shelly is kinda on the fence about being in a relationship, i think that Bud is more in a position to be comfortable with the dude and i think that’s going to materialize in the narrative.
Good point. It may be Shelly will leave Justin behind for one(sphinx) reason or another(sphinx), and Bud will become fallback girl. OTOH, if Justin leaves because he can’t deal with Shelly’s mixed heritage, he probably won’t be able to deal with Bud’s uniqueness either.
If it turns bad, Bud could become the fallout girl.
i don’t know… i heard that PLASMA burns things up quite cleanly with no left-over uncombusted material and even without radiation… therefore no fallout 😀
Wasn’t there something about Shelly and Bud not getting along in any of the other 56 iterations of Earth?
On the other hand, their bonding over how easy Justin is to tease may keep the world from meeting that Mayan prediction for how the era ends.
If that is who FatUncle thinks it is, Bud is stuck in one crappy loop. First she wants Monica’s guy and now she wants Shelly’s. Poor girl has got to find one of her own soon.
I was going to say. You’d think a teleporter like Bud could be throwing a wider net.
On the other hand, she has every reason to be excessively picky. Not sure that the Twin Cities can keep supplying enough princes for all its magic goddesses.
Naughty, naughty. If she keeps this up, she is definitely going to be getting coal in her stocking next Christmas.
Of course, she could just compress it into a diamond… but it’s the thought that counts.
Wapsisquare: Where masculinity is a major turnoff.
Sorry, just the universal fascination with scrawny and/or nerdy men by the Wapsi girls begged such a comment.
personally i’d amend that to “machismo” is the turnoff, not masculinity… Kevin is quite masculine, but he’s not a jerk about BEING masculine. Same goes for Justin. granted, the other two guys are kinda skinny and nerdy, but hey, THEY don’t act the jerk about it either… in my experience, it’s only when guys are doing the macho routine that it pisses most women off, whether they are nerds or muscle-bound jocks.
And you’ve nailed it!
Some people just keep falling in the same hole…
So what’s next? A New Year’s party, where Shell decides to bring along her man?
We may be seeing drunk’n’pissed Bud again very soon.
Plus, she’s just adorable in the last panel 🙂
Ruh roh, golem in love.
Sphinx vs. Golem VIII!!! Saturday(day day day)…at the Metrodome(dome dome dome)…
You’ll pay for the whole seat, but you’ll only need the EEEEEDDGGGGEEEE!
And Round TWO will be in the THUNDERDOME….
This is what happened the LAST time Bud got angy at the Metrodome:
Too bad Acacia doesn’t blush – cause she looks like she would at this moment. She does look extremely Cute, PLUS who knows, maybee theres ANOTHER Cute,Nerdy Bespectacled Officer on the Minneapolis P.D.
Oh dear dear dear. 🙁
Hopefully she’s talking about the stuffy cop with the mustache…
We can hope.
But I saw (heard?) a line recently, something to the effect that, if it weren’t for idiots making stupid choices, you could write very little. It’s those stupid choices and mistakes that create the conflict that makes the stories possible.
Not only that, but without idiots making stupid choices we’d need far fewer police officers. Then what would Cute Officer Tight Buns do?
Santa leaves reindeer droppings?
Must be all those cookies. Too much fiber.
I wonder if Bud is describing Justin. I wonder if Justin ever talks to Shelly about this crazy Blonde on his beat.
to quote sam beckett
Well here is that nerdy cop. Officer tight buns can be found in profile here and here . Personally I think it is him.
Thank you for posting the links, this helps allot.
I am not so sure that they are the same person. The two profiles are different enough along with the hair to make me question if it is. But in the end the only one that can answer this mystery is Paul so we will have to hang around and wait for the shoe to drop.
Thinking about it, it could just be a sign of how in sync Bud and Shelly are getting that she is using Shelly’s boyfriend hunting methods.http://wapsisquare.com/comic/getting-his-attention/ and if the sequence makes sense it was a couple of months at the most between the two events in real time.
Ooops, I put the wrong link. This is the one http://wapsisquare.com/comic/you-again/. This may just show that they have a similar taste in guys is all.
I have been thinking about Bud’s tossing the Calendar Machine into the sun…
Escape velocity is ~25K MPH, the speed of sound is ~750 MPH (dependent on temperature and pressure) so Bud would have to swing her arm so that her hand was doing Mach 34 or so, plus a bit so the CM was still above escape velocity after passing through the atmosphere.
I don’t know about you but I have been within a couple of miles of a hypersonic launch device that barely got up to orbital velocity (Mach 24) and it made a hell of a boom that felt like an explosion even at that distance, which is why the project was abandoned. I can’t find any links to the project to tell you about it, but it was LOUD!!!
Given the time she quoted for transit to the Sun, it was traveling something like half the speed of light.
It would have punched through the atmosphere so fast there wouldn’t be time for a conventional sonic boom, i think.
The plasma track it’d leave behind would be right purty, though.
Just under 1/3 of the speed of light. Light takes 8.3 mins to get here and it took 24 mins to get to the sun.
