…i stands agape.
Damn it! *STAND, *STAND! My keyboard skills were blown away. True story.
T’was but a minor sneeze. Some of Frosty is still standing.
Along with the solar system.
And Rootwalla, just blame Autocorrect. ; )
I stands eros…
With a side order of philia.
OK, you guys. If you’re going to be making puns in Latin, the Pun Jar expects at least a silver denarius from each of you. Pay up…
… and nicely done, by the way!
I’ve stands all I can stands till I can’t stands no more!
You, sir, win the internets. Bravo.
So cute she’ll even blow a snowman’s mind! And body….apparently. O.o
Snot or flame?
supersonic sneeze ^^
Have you ever seen, or played around with a vortex ring shooter? By firing air (or another gas or fluid) out of a circular orifice, it’s possible to launch a sort of self-propagating “smoke ring” which travels forwards, carries significant momentum/force with it, and dissipates rather slowly. It’s more “focused” than a simple blast of air (or smoke, or flame). You can make a simple vortex “gun” with nothing more than an empty coffee can (with plastic lid) and a hole punch or drill.
Seems to me that a sneeze from a GG might produce one of these (although the stretched vertical shape of the hole in the snowman isn’t quite what I’d expect).
Here’s a link to photos and videos of a volcano (Mount Etna) generating these sorts of vortex smoke/steam structures – Bud might be able to give Etna a run for its money in this respect, if she put her mind / lungs / sinuses to it.
I’ve seen the same sort of thing from an ICBM launch from a silo at Vandenburg.
Must have been flame. Ejecta would have either punched a single hole or splattered it. A supersonic air blast would have definitely spread laterally and splattered the entired snowman over the terrain.
But flame would’ve melted clear through the top of Frosty’s head (heat rises and all that), and anything that simply melted the snow would’ve left puddles/ice flows around his “feet”. I think Frosty’s guts are pasted on the side of a building six blocks away, and there’s a couple old guys staring at the field muttering, “So-ome gopher… eh, don’t gophers hibernate?”
*deposits a stack of nickle-apiece programs in the pun jar
That’s just snot right.
Aha, that’s where that hand came in…
I think I’m lost here, what hand?
I posted a sketch on Facebook.
ah, gotcha thanks.
It’s funny how Shelly is chill with this. I guess she can maintain her cool through anything at this point. Nothing can melt that icy calm.
I guess I’ll just pay the pun jar if none of you guys are going to stab me for any of those. You guys are just cold.
*drops several old video games and a Terry Pratchett novel in the pun jar*
Casey- grabs the novel and deposits $6 in the jar. growls at someone who so abuses relics of joy!
Don’t get frosted! It’s snow fun coming up with a cool pun, and having nobody roll the ball further. Get my drift? I’d go on, but I’d hate to become a flake.
Drops a snowman’s top hat, with matching scarf and gloves, plus a carrot and several coal bits, into the pun jar.
You mugged Frosty to pay the jar?
Best laugh I’ve had all weekend!
Wow, A Monday lesson. I did not think that Bud had a need to sneeze, I always figured she was immune to the things that make us need too.
AFAIK golems can still get their noses tickled by the cold. As Jin pointed out they still feel the cold it just won’t kill them.
I think that’s Shelly, not Jin. (bulging arm muscles)
Opus was referring to how Jin demonstrated she still feels when it is cold, thus the other Golems (Brandi, Bud, May, Tepoz) likely do. Not suggesting that this picture involved Jin in any way.
I highly doubt Jin and Bud could stand one another’s company long enough to build a snowman unless Monica was forcing them.
Considering they burp, get drunk, get “randy”, and get sleepy, I think the GGG still feel and function similar to humans, they just lack the more negative, permanent side effects (such as physical injury or illness).
Since Bud is wearing a short skirt, I would think she isn’t too bothered by cold.
Nope, that’s just in case the Mexican food she had for lunch decides to cause another expulsion of air, which just might leave a snow crater…..
One hopes that Bud does not decide to chew a few pieces of Air Action Vigorsol gum. She’d probably be capable of freezing over the entire northern hemisphere with one blast.
Whahahaha.. This made my Monday morning..
Happy happy here that “the whimsical” is back
Whoa! Somebody get that girl some Puffs Plus with lotion. O.0
Personally, I’d leave the snowman like that. Mess with people’s heads as they try to figure out how.
Ah, you are a “Calvin-ist” when it comes to snowpeople. All we need now is a snow-scene of terror.
Then all we need is C.S.I.: Waspi to come by.
Some of my fellow web-design students made this website for a class project. It’s about restaurants in Duluth, Minnesota. I thought you guys might be interested.
Many thanks for the link – very neat – now – do any of them deliver – to Reno NV . Just asking ..
I think Guy Fieri visited one of those places. I think I saw it on Diners,Drive-Ins and Dives.
Now is when Bud should do a little shuffle, throw out her hands in the snowman’s direction and yell “Ta-Da!”
Hmmm. Shouldn’t the title be ‘Holely Snowman’? 😀
Yes, and just what exactly are you contributing???
[Opening the PP (pun portal)]
Blowing a snowman? Your doing it wrong!
See, Bud? THIS is why you have to cover your mouth when you sneeze!
Èxactly! Imagine the carnage from a sneeze in public from people that can scream holes in walls.
Gory, Gory, Hallelujaah!
Souldn’t buds shoes have blown off in accordance to the laws of cartoon physics?
Typo, typo, typo… Blah, blah, blah!
Shouldn’t the hole be in the shape of her body according to cartoon physics?
Since the commonest phrase is “blew her socks off”, the laws of cartoon physics would probably require that her socks be lying somewhere on the snow (shredded) but that her shoes be intact and on her feet.
A more realistic physics representation would have caused the law of action and reaction to have blasted Bud backwards… Shelly would be looking off-panel (towards Bud perched up in a tree, or imploded through somebody’s garage door, or ?) saying “Ghesundheit”. This probably would have spoiled the single-panel cartoon, though… lots of “Hunh?” comments.
All you would have to do is have Bud’s boots at the base of the snowman and Shelly looking off to the right saying “Gesundheit”. That way the speculation can flow as to which GG it was!
That’s why I specified *cartoon* physics. I didn’t want to upset all the science nerds that hang out here. Seriously, some of their physics discussions in these comments leave me completely dazed!
Hommage a Henry Moore.
Ewwwwww, Golem snot on her snowman! 😉
That girl has some fantastic legs.
Agreed. Acacia has some Dynamite legs and a Cute Butt. Outfit designed by United Federation of Planets.
I’m glad that someone else mentioned her excellent butt.
That girl has some fantastic lungs.
I might have said it before, and I’ll say it (again?):
Paul, with all that lovely one-panel art you’ve done lately – why isn’t there a Wapsi Square 2012 calendar on sale already? 😉
np: Mogwai – Hound Of Winter (Earth Division EP)
“We are the hollow men . . . .”
Man, I’ve heard of blowin’ snow… 8-D
Shelly puts an old felt top hat on snowman’s head.
Sparkles appear, the snowman quivers, real eyes replace the coal ones… “Happy Birth…”
Frosty’s innards are blown out, the hat is lost in the gale-force wind generated by a GG’s sneeze.
Shelly murmurs, “Just as well. Too much supernatural shit going around here these days anyway.”
I wonder where the snow ended up?
