They all check out until the pizza arrives?
Why not? She’s got nothing better to do. XD
It’s demon comfort food. Even doubt doesn’t hassle M when there’s pizza ordered.
I’m not sure that’s what they meant. There’s no one for Tina’s demons to hassle because they ARE her now. So yeah, they just abandon the body until the pizza gets there and they have to answer the door.
No, DJ’s right. There’s one strip where Doubt tells M all about pizza being Demon comfort food.
Oops, nevermind >.<
maybe that was a joke…
Heh, yeah. Not what I meant. XD
So that’s what they mean by a “slice of life” comic.
LOL!! Tina’s like, “Yes!! Free at last to eat what we like!!”
That’s some fabulous artwork, Paul.
Absolutely. He draws himself one mean dog/wolf skull.
Oh c’mon. Jim was just getting into the spirit of thingss
Let’s hope the pizza person doesn’t see the stray demon piece that’s still outside of Tina…
If it’s Dylan, she’s seen weirder stuff…
Of course she’s seen the demons. She delivers to Monica’s place all the time.
Just think how much you would save on tips if the delivery guy could see the demon. People pay good money to be that scared.
“This is George Tirebyter. I wanna order a pizza to go and no anchovies!”
“No anchovies? You’ve got the wrong man! I spell my name DANGER!” -click-
Damn! They never come up in the hills!
She’s no fun; she fell right over!
Ah, seventies drug humor. No telling what USEFUL information that replaced in my brain.
Seventies? You mean they had humor in the dark ages?
HEY! I resemble that remark…
Yes, there was humor in the dark ages.
I still think of that show as more of a 60’s than 70’s show, as they never really got syndicated. We were stuck with Gilligan and the Brady Bunch. No wonder my generation is so snarky…
Yes, there was humor in the dark ages of the ’70s!
Cut ‘im off at the past!
“My fellow American…..”
“A cheap tin ring from a Crackerback Jox!”
“He walks again by night! From out of the fog, and into the smog….”
I’m sure a lot of us could go on.
She deliberately left out the only demon who likes anchovies.
Heh, no I think it was Nudge that liked anchovies. She’s gone now, so they’re all excited.
You are correct! 🙂
Weird demons. Anchovies are great.
One of the best pizzas I ever had was in Greece, and had olive oil, anchovies, and artichoke hearts.
Worst experience i ever had with pizza was in Sicily – it was probably the mussels that laid me low for a couple days with food poisoning.
Given that it was just about the time the first cases of cholera on the European mainland in A Very Long Time ( i forget exactly how long, but decades at least) were being traced to shellfish from Naples Bay…
Yes, that’s why the stray demon does not want to be left out…first time in goodness knows how long it can have anchovy-free pizza.
However, StJason does have a point, that ingredient combo sounds yummy…I just don’t think Domino’s knows an artichoke from a pomegranate…
why would you get pizza from domino’s anyway?
Some places have very few choices…
’twas just an example…I could have said Pizza hut or Little Caesar’s…only one delivery place called Roppolo’s did a very good job with exotic ingredients. And yes, they had a wicked awesome spinach, olive oil and anchovy offering with shredded mozarella and parmesean now that I think about it…
Roppolo’s is local to Austin, and was very successful in the ’90s until the dot com bust sent them back to being a late-night slice place for the drunken college crowd in the bar district…(sigh)
txmystic, try the Gucci-B’s. The first time I had artichoke on a pizza was a take out and cook it yourself from them. Turned me on to artichoke on a pizza.
The demons can wait….It’s PIZZA TIME. Besides Who wants to do anything on an empty stomach.
No…the demons can’t wait…hence the one trailing behind. he wasn’t fast enough, and the rest of the Collective was excited. 😛
I was scanning through the archives tonight and found the previous pizza delivery(With Anchovies)…
…and now I can’t find it!
maybe it was a joke, in the way that, when she’s happy, the demons aren’t able to penetrate her consciousness.
Geeze! Some of her demons are UG-LY! At least Monica’s Doubt looked pretty good. The rest, generally, weren’t all that bad, but animal skull demons? I’m beginning to think Nudge was the best looking of the bunch.
And how do you form words other than “ah” with no lips and no tongue?
Now, watch Nudge be the new pizza delivery girl.
“I knew you’d want anchovies on this Tina, so I went ahead and told them to put some on.”
“AUUUUUUGGGHHHHH!! *lunge* NOW YOU DIIIIIIIIE!!!”
Georgia O’Keeffe saw demons? Hmmm, that could explain a lot 😉
I just usually go with because it’s magic. However, if that is insufficient for you, go with this. By the way I snorted coffee at your scenario. 🙂
Sorry about the caffeine nasal flush. I don’t think that version of the original phrase is quite right, however. At least not these days. Yes, some people will look at a computer and what it does and say it’s “magic” to them but they don’t really mean that. They know full well it’s just technology. To a technically savy person, something that looks like real magic would simply be a technology not yet understood by us (as Monica once said). They would look for the power source and try to understand how such a thing might work. That’s the thing about crossing the technology barrier. Once sufficiently advanced, technically adroit people will no longer consider anything magic. Others might. Some will even worship it, but, by in large, the mystique will have been shattered.
Well, Monica’s demons may not really look just like her, but there seems to be a bit of a resemblance at times. I remember the same thing with Jin’s demons. Perhaps these demons no longer resemble the female body they occupy because their true host is gone…there’s no one to look like.
We’re probably seeing what the demons look like in their “true” forms now…or maybe it’s just that they’re inhabiting a “living corpse”…so skeletal figures are appropriate?
Even tho they look terrifying and bones n’ stuff..
The last panel, the the panicky demon skull is quite adorable 🙂
Perhaps, but ya know, if there were no dialog in that pic, it would look as though it was about to devour Tina butt first.
Two different interpretations by characters in Season Seven of Buffy of the same Mystickal Text:
From below, it devours.
First it eats your bottom.
It’s defiantly how warped I am, but when skulls and stuff come up on TV or a movie, I am always the one going “Pff! Fake! Look at that superorbital ridge. And that’s a male mandible on a female cranium!”
I remember being completely jolted out of the moment near the end of “American Werewolf in London” when the severed head bounced like a rubber ball…
I am totally with Tina here. Sometimes I am soo looking forward to my super-size quattro formaggio, that I can hear the imploding of air behind me when the doorbell finally rings, and I am on my way to welcome the goo-y goodness that is NY-Pizza with thick base and extra gorgonzola……(and NO anchovis..they are spawn of the devil..yuck!)
Yup! I can be mighty fast if the necessity is there (hunger, for all. Food is a MAJOR motivator for me…)
Anchovies are the cockroaches of the sea.
Concur wholeheartedly. I bought a can once just to try, ’cause I won’t say I don’t like something without trying it at least once, and sweartagod (whichever one is interested), when I opened the can it smelled like an entire locker full of old unwashed gym socks. Only not that appetizing… And this from someone who will eat any other kind of seafood he can get his hands on.
So none of you will touch a Caesar salad?
Sure. I also eat steak sauce/worcestershire sauce/etc. But in those, I don’t have to actually take a bite of the little dead fishies, ’cause they’re all blended in…
What Rowan said…
Eeeeeuw.. Smells like that part of a harbour where all dead fish floats about..
Oh, FSM…. Real Ceaser salad with real anchovies. *drool*
My first wife and i decided that anchovies are what Italians use to preserve brine.
The Romans used–and shipped to other parts of the Empire–a fish sauce called garum that was apparently the anchovy of sauces. Something to do with well-aged fish…
Luckily, the recipe has been lost for many centuries.
Yep. Even if you only put them on a portion of the pizza, somehow their fishy foulness will flow through the whole thing contaminating the good parts as well.
I know it’s not meant to be funny, but the 4th panel with all the demons heading back in could ALSO read in black-and-white as her spraying blood out her eyes…and THAT is effing hilarious to me 😛 I wish I could do that at work once a day. I lol’d heartily! And artistically, all of the panels of Tina at her house have always been standouts to me. The past few days are no exception!
The Horned Toads, actually lizards, of the southwest can do it. Why not you?
Creepy empty Tina is creepy. But I still <3 her.
That demon re-entry might feel a little awkward, since he’s in a rush…
All I could think of in response to that was vague references to Mall Rats… 🙂
…The back of a Volkswagon?
“It’s here!” Love the smile.
Dang. For some reason in that last panel, something about that demon has me thinking “Ollie Dragon!” Must be the giraffy spots in the mist trail. Kukla, Fran & Ollie? Anyone? Or just me.
Well, no … or at least not till you mentioned it…
Almost forgot about them! Yes, it does.
Funny how Pizza will immediately lift a demonic depression.
Lest we forget, Tina 1.0 was a psychologist before she died…listening to other people peel back the layers of their own psychoses had to have an affect on her own…like turning them into a pack of rabid, pizza devouring animal skulls…
…although they did not all look like that yesterday…hmmmmmm…
True, but 2 did. Yesterday we were seeing them as more like a shadow projected on a wall than a 3-D object as in today’s drawing..
Darn! That should have gone with the post above.
Never really appreciated just how creepy Tina truly is until these last two comics.
One wonders if even guys like Kevin and Alan could handle a relationship with what she/they is/are.
Kind of reminds me of the Ayakashi dogs from Kekkaishi.
In and Out Through the ‘EYES’ … (eeww!)
Why the ‘Eyes’?
Is it a push for the old cliché – “The Eyes Are The Windows To The Soul”?
