I Love Tina Haha, Panel two is the best look of “God Dammit!”
I had that same look on my face this morning as I was driving to work…after I realized that I pre-paid for my gas, then drove away without actually pumping any.
See ya later, Andrew Jackson. Hope whoever wound up with my gas pays forward the good karma.
You do realize that over half the time you forget to pump your gas, the store knows about it and you could call?
I work for a convenience store chain. We have people do that all the time and we stash the money for a few days until we are sure you aren’t coming back. Never hurts to check as soon as you notice.
Ouch. (And Panel 2 is a “D’oh!” moment.)
Puts me in mind of Bud, somehow.
Or Brandi reading “Now, take the second bowling ball”
Do you mean this one? Two pictures of people really displeased with themselves.
Dat de one.
Gotta love Karma!
The Universe does have a sense of humor, after all…
Well, you don’t expect it to all be Dogma, do you?
Got to watch out – sometimes your karma runs over your dogma…
O-o-k-a-y… when did Tina become such a Klutz?
The Roger Rabbit Theory of Humourous Incongruity:
Only when it’s funny!
early in the strip she slipped on some ice and then was happy nothing was broken. I think she always has been a kluts
Monica’s a klutz. Tina, it would appear, is just accident prone…
And rather than an elevator, I’d think lights on the stairs would be a wiser installation.
You have accurately identified Monica’s and Tina’s traits.
So, is Tina prone to accidents because supernatural beings keep changing things in her coffee shop? Is she protecting Monica by absorbing the harm that Monica would have otherwise suffered? Am I reading way too much into things? Is the texture of the door frame a clue or not?
I feel a little like the narrator at the end of a Batman episode.
If nothing else, there should at least be a rail on the outer part of the staircase.
Some people would rather curse the darkness in righteous indignation than light a simple candle…
So poor Tina 2.0 is accident prone. Explains how she managed to reverse over herself.
And Tina finishes her days performance with an over the the stair edge, twisting, arm flailing, gravity defying pause-in-mid air clutzaway dismount. As we wait for the judges decision we should note that, despite her arm cast handicap, she still managed to do a double axle coffin spin just before landing. And here are the judges scores … 8.2, 8.7, 9.1, 8.5, and 8.2. That’s gotta be disappointing for this veteran fumbler. Indeed it is Curt. I understand points were taken due to her unauthorized use of the patented Chevy Chase dead fish plop and face plant. Better luck next time old girl!
Why do I hear he Big Shwag and Frank doing the voice-over?
Becky must have reeaaall secure job security.
Don’t tell me that she is going to need crutches.
No, because then she’d be Cosette.
Looking at the next-to-last panel, i am reminded of Freak Brothers strips (and other Gil Shelton stuff, actually): Clang! Honk! Tweet!
“Fat Freddy, go out and score us a lid.”
I wonder how Fat Freddy’s Cat would stack up against Dietzel? (I just can’t see Dietzel “laying an egg” in Monica’s shoe, y’know? It just wouldn’t be Marquess of Queensberry Rules… )
I am still wondering about Monica when she had eyes that glowed in the dark.
Eye lights, just like the GGs.
I’m a bit surprised she hasn’t pursued how to wear eye lighter…
Hahahah ! Becky seems to know her boss all too well .
I did love the self cangratulatory expression she had in the first panel. So proud of coming back intact, proving she was not always a clutziod. It made the revelation expression of forgotten sugar all the funnier.
Now she’ll drag herself up the steps, only to realize she forgot the prize yet again. At which point she will say “the sugar can bloody well bring itself up the stairs!” Which, given this series, is not beyond the possible.
Heh heh. You’d think someone in the Legion had some coordination…
I wonder if that’s actually the reason for Tina’s clumsiness: since Tina 1.0 is dead, and her demons took over her body, now every muscle movement is instructed by committee.
(“Aaaaaand foot down!” “Wait, not yet!” CRASH! BOOM! CLANG! BONK! SPLAT!)
“… a camel is a horse, designed by a committee …”
Good point. Perhaps they choose (or need to choose) one among themselves as the designated driver. It must be Panic’s turn lately.
Actually, Nudge (whose middle name could also be “Chaos”) is the one who drove over her own wrist…
This raises an interesting question: How much physical pain does Tina 2.0 feel? She has to feel something because she’s running around with Tina 1.0’s actual body and the obvious “ow” references. But does whomever is in charge get the brunt, or is it shared across the whole spectrum of demons in there? I mean, the woman’s purposely broken her own arm with blunt force from a metal canister and rolled over her own wrist with her own car while she was IN it…. that’s PAIN right there, but she seems to shrug it off more or less.
She’s probably on painkillers now. I don’t think any demon is normally in charge — it’s more of a collective conscience, I think.
Heh, Tina seems like an easy boss to work for. She’s letting Becky tell her what to do. I wonder if she even allows Becky in the basement, though. I doubt she would want to answer questions about the doll and I suspect there may be more down there than that.
The renovations to the counter are continuing. It has a new front and the top has been flipped around.
@Paul: Is the counter top upside-down by mistake?
No, it’s upside down by mistake. But Tina is fixing the place up.
All fixed. Hit refresh.
Like Homer Simpson and that dang tractor! The instant he got out of frame, Ka-thump!
Que laugh track. Mean while, back at the Hall of Justice…I mean the museum that Monica works at….
Tina might be just a tad giddy, having just survived an encounter with one of the most dangerous demon-killers extant. Coming down off a few minutes of pure terror will do that to you.
At’s always fall season with that girl…
When Monica said that she rushed over to Mucho Mocha based on a bad feeling, Amanda said, “A feeling?! When did you start getting all New-Age on me?” Now Becky says, “…but I feel that you’d just squash yourself…” That struck me as an odd way to word say that. It sounds like she’s either picked up some snooty-sounding expressions somehow or she makes decisions based on feelings rather than factually. It doesn’t sound like something Monica or Amanda (or any other cast member that I can think of) would say. I don’t want to read too much into it, but if Becky becomes a regular cast member, she might tend to interpret things very differently than Monica and the others do.
Perhaps she’s related to another overly formal cast member. http://wapsisquare.com/comic/justjacqui/
Actually, what just jumped out at me how Paul’s little helper characters are really little helpers. The sure goes for Amanda’s gofer. (Ouch! Did I just write that?) You could probably include Tepoz and Deitzel in that if you stretch things far enough.
