It was her officer, the short blond, top heavy one. I saw her do it!!
To identify her properly we will need to have a line up. I am sure you can ‘poit’ her out easily.
*slides the Jar over*
Monica’s a redhead…
And that is why eye witness reports are unreliable. Or the eye witness wanted to see a line-up of short, top heavy blonds.
Seen several colorized pictures of her … and Paul has Said it himself.
Yep–it’s the pixy with the rack-et. She served up a real nasty prank.
I’m gonna need a play-by-play this time
I think he swung at a ball that abruptly vanished before he connected, and found himself spinning end over end.
translation: she charlie browned him big time… of course with her it’s going to be hard to keep the eye on the ball in the first place with her ample ability to distract… 😛 🙂
That or she poited the ball back in his direction almost instantaioniously, hitting him in the fore head and bowling him over with his own shot (only fair, he WAS aiming for her)
“instantaneously”, if you please. (I admit, without spell checking, I couldn’t spell it either)
That’s a serious case of comic physics if that’s what happened. Normally a person would just stumble or face-plant (assuming he was expecting that much resistance from the ball). I figured she poited something into him…
I suspect that she poited him up about 6 inches just as he swung causing his forward momentum to momentate too forward for what he was ready at the moment.
Remember Charlie Brown when his pitches came back.
Or when Lucy grabbed the football away.
Oh man! What attitude! Now that’s hot.
Advantage: Monica and Tina!
Well, DUH!!!… they’re FEMALE… of course they have the advantage, you try to get ANYBODY to believe you when you have something “bad” to say about them and it’s still your career that goes down in flames even if it’s true… i KNOW… I’ve seen it happen in the Navy, thank Me, that it didn’t happen TO me…
Huh. This is not the sort of place I’d expect to see some MRA trolling.
nope not trolling, i just dislike it when people think there’s any doubt to the matter… I’m done with this topic, won’t say anything more about it… let’s get on with funnier ones OK?
Absolutely love Kevin’s reaction and Monica’s final smirk!
Great work, Paul!
Seconded. But actually all the expressions are really fun today.
want ‘tennis faces’ ?? just found this 🙂 🙂
**russian, in english, so some ads might be dubious…
Shouldn’t that be “poit” vs kettle? 😉
You, sir, owe the jar something there…
You know, given Monica’s tendency to have a few “hiccups” in her poits…
Let’s make sure that shoe’s the only thing missing.
Fairly sure that she just poited the ball away just before he hit it…
Well, she did aim to poit a ball…
…Jin won’t be too happy about that…
Oh, Monica, I’m pretty sure that poiting the ball during a serve is NOT regulation play.
Absolutely loving her expression in the last panel. 🙂
Is there such a thing as “unsportsmanlike conduct” in tennis? ‘Cause if there is, I’m pretty sure poiting the ball while one’s opponent is in mid-serve would count.
“You can’t prove nuthin’!”
Tweet! “Uns-poit-sman” like conduct.
It’s wednesday … it’s Wednesday 🙂
Mon plays dirty!
She’s riding high on endorphins and adrenaline now (plus reveling in the ability to move thanks to the new bra), but Monica has been exercising a lot – to the point of over-exercising – for someone who said she was out of shape and could barely climb a staircase. I fear the inevitable crash and excruciating soreness coming her way.
Yeah, overdoing it and suffering the consequences is a major discouragement to an effective exercise program.
I was doing great in Basic Training until I developed a stress fracture in a knee and went on “profile”.
The end result was a constant battle with obesity that I fight to this day, forty years later.
She’ll have Kevin massage out the pains … after a good hot shower.
Everyone seems to feel she poited the ball, but I didn’t think it was that at all given the amount of spin on Allan’s body. 🙁 I don’t like misreading things.
Otherwise, really enjoying this series of interactions. It’s got to be nice for Monica to have so many friends “in the know.”
Well she could have done it so as the ball left his racket she poited it behind his head….which would explain how he ended up next to Kevin. It’s difficult to portray such instantaneous actions in a comic…
Maybe she poited him to an inverted position just as he was coming into his rotationso he ended up on his back AND missing the ball…
Or maybe she poited the Tazmanian Devil onto Allan and then poited him away again. It would explain the weird “speech” and swirly motion. 😛
Definitely got the ball out of his way. Picture this one kid I saw walking up the stairs with his eyes closed. When he thought there was another step that simply wasn’t there his forward momentum keot him awkwardly off balance. I can only imagine how that feels with a full on shot to a tennis ball that suddenly went missing.
It’s even worse walking downstairs when you think there’s one more step than there is.
I’ve done both.
This is hilarious, but more Tina, please…
Um … Rule Book, Please!!!
Let’s see … Um … if it’s NOT in the rule book, it’s NOT against the rules? RIGHT??
more like poit vs kettle. amirite?
