Was that a guess or did she read the aura of their bruises?
But how could she tell the difference between “volcano bruises” and “mine bruises”?
I think she just aimed for the most far-fetched scenario to take the edge off the situation.
Of course, she underestimates the powers of the Fabulous Poiting Bikini Duo…
Oh, I like that phrase: call it the FPBD for short and watch all the other charaters try to work it out…
for some reason a version of a theme song popped in my head.
“Teenage Mutant Bikini Duo”
The pyroclastic cloud probably left an indelible on their auras.
While Tina may be making a guess at the cause, the effect is probably extremely clear.
Perceptive Tina is perceptive.
YAY! Tina’s back!!!
Holy $#!% Jinx!
And she brought her front too!
Lets hope all the insides are intact too..
Well Tina chould have left one at home again (http://wapsisquare.com/comic/no-anchovies/) 🙂
Arrrghh!!! Damn misspellings.
Hah Tina! Your sarcasm is no match for the ridiculous reality!
Well, Tina clearly perceives the aural effect of three tropical islands, destroyed by (1) technology, (2) being on a subduction zone arc, and (3) utterly silly behavior.
Those islands are gone… from the sub, line, and the ridiculous.
(yeah, I know that’s stretching it… but it’s Sunday, surely the Pun Jar will forgive me if I pay it enough… *clink*)
You fell for that one hook, line, and clinker!
(Empties out lint in pocket)
Sunday??? nah you missed it by 13 mins!!! and here in UK, its 8:40 BST!! 😀
It was Sunday where/when I posted it – I live in the Pacific time-zone, currently UTC-7. So there 😛
Just wait till she asks about sea mines.
What mines? I distinctly remember a volcano, and wine, and a giant sea urchin….
It’s kinda fuzzy after that….
It was probably pretty fuzzy BEFORE that, too!
Angels protect fools and drunkards.
And special care (for some reason) of foolish drunkards (who refrain from driving in that state). Personal Experience. Just Sayin.
She;ll probably say, ‘Where you two outta your mines?’
*little jar with sticker saying”pun” jumps up and starts running* aaaahhh.. No more! No more!
I WIN! Take that pun jar. I saw a movie about that one time. Pun Jar the elephant boy.
Awwwww, they’re so cuuuuuuute!
I can only imagine what it’d be like to sit at a corner table in Mucho Mocha and watch the Wapsiverse pass through in the morning. LOL
Isn’t that what we’re doing? If its not… then where did I get this dark chocolate chip muffin and orange juice from?
Mmmmm chocolate chip muffins.
So that’s where my muffin went.
::grumbles and goes to get another::
Probably something like:
LMAO!!! I’d forgotten about that one. Good one. 🙂
“What the heck did you do? Find an active Volcano?”
Funny you should mention that.
“It wasn’t active when we GOT there …”
“So what did you DO?”
“It wasn’t us! At least I don’t think it was …”
My thought too: “Now that you mention it. . . .”
Too cute when they are sharing innocent guilt.
Good guess, Tina. XD
It’s like she knows… O.o so need my DA icons to load here lol.
The girls proving that you can have two islands kick your ass, and still look cute as a button.
Welcome to the Wile E. Coyote school of Island hopping!!! All they need are the dumb signs to pull out from behind their backs saying things like “oh SH1T!!!” with that “why me?” look on their faces… Naw Tina, nuttin’ like that… we jus’ rode into town in the back of an empty cement mixer with some funature we bought… an’ a ‘fridge…
Wile E.’s best sign ever was near the end of the Loony Tunes: Back in Action/i> movie:
“They don’t pay me enough.”
It was just another day at the office for Waspi Islander demolitions. Have explosive potential, will travel.
It’s all fun and games until somebody loses an island.
Jin looks good with a shiner.
Something about that sentence didn’t sound right.
It’s one of the better ways of baiting the hook when fishing for compliments.
I know…. pun jar…. *clank*
Just don’t say it to a police officer
You’re right. That sounds incredibly bad (unless by “shiner” you’re refering to a beer that I’m fond of).
However, I understand what you mean. I think it’s the smoky eye/dark eyeshadow look that has been so popular… because somehow it looks sexy even though it also looks like the girl got punched in the face… 🙂
I somehow thought that the eye liner trick was to hide the fact that a girl had been punched in he face. (Sorry I just cant get into these fads like that.)
I get what you mean though. Some people have the ability to take what should be a mark on their appearance and make it work for them, like they meant it. It’s almost creepy the way Jin make a bruise into a fashion statement.
Guess that’s a weird twist on natural beauty?
It’s Awesome to see Jin being herself and rolling with the punches.
For all the hell and havoc of dealing with the Calendar Machine, Jin is finally becoming herself instead of a calculating manipulator. The last (and final) go-around required her to be a hateful/hated person, but that personna is irrelevant now. Jin can find out who she is!
As Captain Renault said to Rick Blaine, “This could be the start of a beautiful friendship!”
Actually, i think that’s RIck’s line.
Which reminds me – there’s a new 70th Anniversary special Blu-Ray.
I stand corrected!
Yes! That is the greatest thing here.
Jin is finally being what she was únder all that responsability.
I can really imagine how the fact that yóur mistake might end the world, might even hamber the happiest of peeps.
I was intrigued by old, cynic Jin, but I am really adóring crazy, funny Jin. And somehowit all makes sense that Bud and Brandy kept supportng Jin. They must have had glimpses of funny, warm loving Jin, in all those centuries together.
Let’s face it, Tina can cheer ANYONE up.
Second panel Monica is Very Cute.
You’ve spent too much time with the 501st if you think Monica is in the second panel.
(Heh. Wondered how long…)
Hitting the nail right between the eyes.
Indeed! After all, it’s not rocket surgery!
Why is it the first time I read this I saw:
Monica: We happened to each other.
Tina: All night long!
My Yuri Googles™ needed a little dusting off this week.
some people can misunderstand the most innocent things… dirty you!
That’s okay. My first thought upon reading that line was “kinky”. 😛
One assumes that Monica is going to take some time off work.
Or explain that she was in a car crash…
At least she didn’t drive over her arm parallel parking…again.
Nah…that was Tina who did that to herself, not Monica. 🙂
I’m STILL trying to figure out how she managed that.
The Band-Aid™ on M’s nose reminds me of Tepoz. Anyone else feel that way? 🙂
I ♥ the sweet n’ sexy looks M and Jin have in that last panel.
Kinda like a poster for Womens’ Tag team wrestling champions. Then I noticed the abrasions on Monicas’…”Girls” and I thought “What a great name for a band”, …. “Brushburned Boobies” 🙂
I like “Boobie Burns” better.
Oddly enough, that sounds more like a 60’s style hipster( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edd_“Kookie”_Byrnes ).
since that last link didn’t come through properly…
If M and Jin looked any cuter in the final panel, I’d have to start shipping them. 🙂
The last panel! The cuteness! It BURNS!!! O_O
Anyone noticed the Virgin Mary icon on the wall of Tina’s cafe (panel 3)?
Funny in a place run by a conglomerate of demons.
Then again, they’re demons of hispanic origin…
I think we’re talking about a different kind of “demon” – not a fallen angel type.
And that would explain why it never even occured to me that it might be weird that the demon’s running Tina would have Christian iconography around. 🙂
I think we’ve seen that icon in previous strips, along with what looked like Mexican festival flags strung across the ceiling. I think you’re right about it being Tina’s hispanic heritage which set the tone for the Mucho Mocha decor (Tina-who-is clearly makes a point of honoring the memory of Tina-who-was).
I’d guess it’s the Virgin of Guadalupe being portrayed.
Papeles picados are the festival flags. As well as those and La Virgen, we’ve seen the counter which had Aztec god drawings on them.
Here they are. http://wapsisquare.com/comic/keeping-warm/
Oh, the perils that can happen when trying to seamount your friendship.
A poorly timed attempt at subduction?
And other horst play.
Very gneiss of you! I’m synclined to guffaw!
Yeah, that would indicate that they were graben at each other.
Shist, I’m starting to take these pun threads for granite.
They are a basalt on the senses, aren’t they?
Mention volcanoes and Jin goes all sexy.
The trouble is when they explode. It gets everywhere…
Dingdingdingding!!! And you got it in one! Someone tell Tina what her fabulous prize is! 😛
From Spidel, a selection of ladies watch bands….
And rrrrrrrRice-a-Roni, the San Fransico Treat!
Actually, should be neck bands.
Can someone look smug AND guilty at the same time?
Cause those two do.
That’s some gnarly road rash. I’m surprised Tina didn’t pick up on something unusual before even turning around, but maybe she has to see someone’s aura to read it.
She may be seeing (visually or aura-seeing) the little bit of pumice and sand which are now deeply embedded in the road rash. That still hurts, just to look at!
That pyroclastic cloud may have left a bit of a mark on their auras as well.
That mark is probably a rather general degradation of their auras (and that ‘giant urchin’ didn’t exactly help heal their auras).
Tina may not know exactly what happened, but she can make some mighty accurate guesses from aura evidence.
Is Justin sensitive to emergency poits and now on his way to Mucho Mocha?
I don’t think we have any information at all about Justin and poiting in any regards. We’ve never seen poit himself, we’ve never seen him be poited, we’ve never seen anyone even refer to poiting in his presence, and Shelly cannot poit (yet?).
Unless Phix poited Shelly and Justin home after her Library lesson, he may not even know that poiting is possible.
I would be very surprised if Shelly has not told him about poiting yet.
Owwie burned boobies there.
I can’t seem to stop giggling – every panel has an expression or two that just keeps getting funnier every time I scan it again 😉
All in all, they don’t look too bad considering everything that they went through yesterday(?).
In particular, after putting away enough red wine and/or other beverages to leave them as thoroughly medicamipated as they were, I was rather expecting to see them both suffering from skull-shattering, gorge-everting hangovers. Maybe there’s something about a poit-enabled constitution that beefs up the morning-after recovery?
Thank you, Paul!
I am wondering what the guy’s reaction to the girls new looks was like.
Whatever they have been doing, it looks like more fun than riding a bicycle…
Oh, nuttin’ much; we just got BOMBED over the weekend…
