OOhh, Shiney ..thing.
Well, Monica is definitely still on a high simmer in Panel One…
Agggh. That was supposed to be a comment to ShadOBabe…
Hmmm… Is it just me, or does Monica just slightly remind you of Jin in the first panel?
I think it’s the eyes.
Hmm…Mouth or eyes?
Combination of the two!
But right, there’s something!
The resemblance is remarkable. Monica looks as if she’s channelling Jin.
definitely the eyes she does have a ferocious feline quality to it.
ps: I looooove the belly pudge on panel 2. So ho-ot!
Panel two, it was really hard to let my gaze go that low. 🙂
its all about ratio 😉
Heh, glad it wasn’t just me.
Hmm..It looks decidedlylike some key, or a part of a bigger whole…
YAYYY!! Questingngnggn!!! (Oh Yes ,I love
adventure-games and RPG’s…)
maybe it ‘opens’ the grave in the irish cemetry?
Perhaps thats why its on board a boat of dead people? a huge hint.
Perhaps the grave will have a germanic name on it insted of an irish one 😀
(i don’t really want answers. much fun is had in speculating and waiting for the outcome in due course however 😀 )
It’s the key to a locker in a supernatural version of Grand Central Station…
…which contains the latest version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy?
I figured it out! Whenever I try to turn off italics, it turns everyone’s comments into italics! Sorry guys…
So if it’s not “Less Than, I, Right-Leaning Slash Mark, Greater Than,” what is it?????
Less than, THEN slash, then i, then greater than. 🙂
Ending Italics Now!
This has been a public service of the National HTML Committee. Thank you for your support.
Phooie! Looks like stand alone closes don’t count..
I once had this problem (or a similar one) with italics, but it was near the end of the comments, and not the beginning….
Fixed. You’re leaving a space between the “i” and the “/” in the closing code.
Thanks again, guys. I won’t mess it up again.
Speaking of RPGs, maybe they have to travel around to find the fetch quests and get the power up. Or stinky can just get them stuff.
Still worried about stinky :/
Staying on the Subject of RPG. I’m working on a system to introduce Monica’s Demons and the Golmn Girls to some of my existing games(D&D or Shadowrun) I’d love some ideas on other Demon types to add to the mix.
Why is it that whenever someone mentions RPGs, I have trouble knowing if they’re talking about Role Playing Games or Rocket-Propelled Grenades? 😀
Both are fun for all ages…. and nether is cheep 🙂
The problem you run into with any detailed psychological self-examination, especially with things like personal demons is that you create and run the demons and the players create and run the people that contain them.
A “dungeon-master” running/deciding the demons’ placement, and the world/dungeon, and player-dice to decide the amount they can “override” the “demons”, or the “demon’ (character-trait, more like it) picked from the pile of cards,could create interesting game-play.. Think D&D with demons/emotions instead of -a troll behind the door- 400 health/380 power/200magic/600mana. Failing f.i. the demon “doubt” will not kill You, but will cost you 3 throws, or something. etc. etc..
Combine that with a questing for artefacts that can nullify demon-cards an x-amount of times, or enhance dice-throws, and You’ll got Yourself quite the intersting evening…
Just from the top of my head..not too versed in D&D.
“RPG” to me means “endlessly roaming Tamriel ,enjoying the world, and make some gold for cool weapons when I’m at it”……. 😛
Yeah, I’m kind of going in that way. Not as much making them characters or villiens to overcome, but more of an enhancement to the characters. As with the conversation between Doubt and Monica, although demons are seen as evil they are a nessesary evil. For example Doubt can make you overthink things or doubt those around you, but on the same side will keep you from jumping into a dangerous situation. A good list of possilbe demons along with the possitive and negitive of each one.
Don’t worry about Stinky.
If he’s anything like his octopus kin, his flesh is very stretchy and he hardly noticed when the shockwave passed through him.
Someone get that back to Hal Jordan so he can recharge his ring.
Or, based on the plug tines on the bottom, it’s an ancient tube for the Ultimate Audio System!
Then again, some keys have those too — I wonder what it opens?
PS – Still working on Colorizing yesterday’s strip.
A humble offering…
Nice job Jabberwonky! Thanks for sharing.
Very VERY nice. You even got the burberry-pattern/colour right.
Really? What sort of lock-keys are they? Such a combination does bring up interesting possibilities of how such a system could work.
Think of a round plate with a circle of holes in it. The pins go in the holes to the proper depth to push an unlocking mechanism. Then you can hold onto the two round handles to rotate the plate with the key.
Jabberwonky — Well done! Must work harder….
Could open the door to a room at the Library into which even Phix has been unable to enter.
That’s a spooky thought. But I bet Nudge could find a way in…
Too bad Bud has switched back to non-metal-clothing…
Too bad she switched back to clothing at all 😆
Yeah, I liked the punk hair. Now it’s in a ponytail, wah.
In an earlier cartoon (when Monica bobbed her hair), she was complaining about not being able to change her hairstyle. Now she knows it just takes something along the lines of an exploding submarine to give her coif a new look.
I don’t think she needs a whole summerine. Just a suitable amount of explosives, and Brandi standing by with tub of hair mousse…Viola!…she’s ready for a night of dancing at the Cerberus Club
Well done, Bud! She actually picked up the…thing and saved it!
Also : boobs!
My thoughts were, “Whew! She DID manage to save it before dropping the grenade!”
Like Jethro Bodine?
Gay Test: If you noticed the object before the boobs, I have some bad news for you.
There’s an Object in the picture?
Actuallay, there are TWO objects in the picture. Plus this thing held by Bud.
Or if female you’re not gay? 😛
Hmm..hard to say, I have caught my BFF staring open-mouthed at impressive racks, yet, she’s not gay. I guess “amazement” goes for both sexes, but with hetero ladies and gay dudes, there’s no sexual undertone….
I was looking @ Monica’s eyes. ‘That’s my story and I’m sticking to it’.
As stated before, she’s so short that you see her eyes and boobs at the same angle.
You call them “eyes” ?? Then what do You call those two small roundish thingies in her head, close to her nose????
which eyes???? 😀 the ones you cannot normally see?? 🙂
Most adorable Monica ever 😀
Bud looks…nervous? Could Monica actually do anything to them still. Since she gave them free will i thought that that took them out of her control? or is it just been hammered into the girls that glyph readers should be feared? or is it cuz its an atifact that Bud doesn’t even have a name too and doesn’t want her friend to get near it since it might be dangerous etc
Yes, Monica does have “control” over them; she just chose not to use it after Bud gave her the life story about how they were captured and abused by the priests.
Well, my pet cats do have their own lives, but they do have the wits to look guilty if they throw up on my bed.
that ‘artifact’ looks cross-like. of course, I could just be seeing form where none was intended.
Pattern, I mean. I might be seeing patterns which are coincidental at best.
There were many cultures that used a cross as a symbol long before the Christian Era.
the romans for one.
THAT looks like either a Key, or a Reliquary…
Thank you for the new vocab word!
OH! You’re welcome! 😀
Oo. reliquary..that would explain the window-like thing in the middle. Mebbe there’s a part of pre-golem Jin in it, and Bud and Monica haven’t noticed yet?
The “thing” also looks like an elaborate incense-holder.
Actually, , yes- that was a third.. or maybe fourth thought, was that it looks like the big censers they use in certain High Rituals of the Church… (What better way to trap a Demon, than in something that hides in plain sight?)
Bringing Monica from anger to curiosity in 2 words…. Cheers for Bud.
Well, to be fair, two words plus a probably ancient artifact. Even if it weren’t clearly magical, Mon’s an archeologist…
I can’t wait to see Monica’s face when Bud and Brandy introduce her to Stinky!
Especially the first slimy tentacle hug…
Especially the moment when M finds out *why* he (it?) is called Stinky. Even Bud went “What’s that awful stench?” (from memory, may be a teensy bit inaccurate)
As far as being smelly goes, Stinky and Tepoz will make best mates, just wait till Stinky pulls Tepoz’ finger: Instant best-friends..
But imagine the eldritch horror of Tepoz pulling Stinky’s tentacle…
Let’s just hope that our universe has a window that can be opened in such a case..(According to the latest discoveries in theoretical physics, there, indeed, could be something like that. O_o …)
“Big Bang’ would only start to describe the horrors unleashed…
The Big Bang was just some vast pan-dimensional being saying “Light a match.”
Thank you for starting my day with a laugh and the curious stares of my co-workers..
i got told the big bang started with the words
Hmm. That look in hte first panel reminds me of someone.
Now who could it be? Maybe…. Jin?
I wonder how long this was from when Bud was talking to Brandy. Looks like Bud got all the Oil/Grease/Diesal Fuel/Exploded Sub/Natzis out of her hair. What type of shampoo did she use or maybe a carwash?
Given that it’s Bud, I’ll guess concentrated hydrogen peroxide and dish soap. Cuts through grease and sixty-year-old remains with ease!
If Jin can *poit* urine out of a bladder, I’m sure with a little concentration Bud or Brandi could *poit* away the diesel and detritus from the incident.
Looking at last Friday’s offering, her hair looks showered and vigorously towel dried.
Gah! I’m going back to html school with Danzier…
I would love–LOVE–a close-up look at the Thing. Preferably where I could pick it up and examine it myself, but a couple of awesome drawings would be great as well!
The more I look at the “thing”, the more I get this ancient vacuum tube vibe.
So what is that thing, anyway?
I dunno… what is that thing???
Rather I should have said… “What the hellis that thing?”
Hey you kids… get away from there…
I would not mess with that thing…
Don’t put your lips on it!
What the hell is that thing?
It looks like a fire hydrant.
It’s a cross-time message to Deitzel…
Really, kids! Don’t put your lips on it!
I got blown up with and island and all I got was this,…thing.
T-Shirt, NAOW! XD
If M’s wearing a tee-shirt tomorrow, there’s going to be a lot of people mad at you…
I got blown up with an island and all I got was this… thing. And I had to go back and fix what auto-correct “fixed” for me.
Yes, I would buy that shirt.
why is everyone in Italics? Srsly this isn’t funny guys….
YAY its back to normal!!!
Totally my fault. Sorry, Kramegame.
What happen? Somebody set up Bud the bomb. We get thingything. Main rack turn on.
…yes, yes, 2001 called, they want their meme back.
All of your base are belonging to us!
It looks like a lantern?
It’s one of those huge hall passes. Bud had to take a note to the 3rd period English teacher.
No but so close!!! Its the keyholder for a gas station restroom!!!
The key has been hidden on Earth for thousands of years…think of how long that line must be by now…
It would explain all those great floods legends tell us about….
An announcement i hope Pablo doesn’t mind – The Comfy Couch of Confusion v2.0 is in session…
Take off that derby and head over there…
