This comic is also a birthday present for Karishad! If you knew him it would be apparent
Yay, first post, and
lol, tv antenna. But what happened too the zoo?
Their still at the zoo, the new guy is making lame jokes and driving the other foxes crazy. Thats a snow fox (snowy. get it?).
lee, if you read the thing right below the strip (you know, the thing that says that this comic is a present) you’ll know that the zoo arc will return soon
Still very funny.
Just how often do we visit our friends at the Zoo?
That’s Kari, alright.
Yup, that’s Karishad… seen some of the commissions he’s had done on FA.
… specially the java plug-in at the end, lol.
Funny way to tie him into Housepets – least he’s locked up where he’ll (hopefully) do the least harm!
*pause* Naaaah… XD
hehe… we were just having a discussion about if foxes were canines or felines…
itwas a tricky one for even me to figure out but foxes are one of the few canines i like…
foxes are actually neither…. they have their own family called vulpes.
actually, foxes are of the genus Vulpes. They are still a part of the family Canidae.
their scintific name is Vulpes vulpes….
yeah…That’s genus Vulpes, species Vulpes;
the family is still Canidae
Foxes are canines – look it up just about anywhere, and it’ll say so. They do have numerous feline traits, but they’re about as related to most cats as wolves and domestic dogs are. Vulpes is only the genus, and Vulpes vulpes only refers to the red fox, probably the most common – they’re either native or been introduced to just about every continent, so the only place you won’t find them is pretty much Antartica. They’re not the only species tho – there are about 27 species of foxes total, but only 12 of which are part of the vulpes genus – “true foxes.”
Not going to write a whole article on it here (altho I’m probably too late to avoid that, lol), but you can find plenty more on Wikipedia, or Encarta Online, assuming Microsoft hasn’t locked everything for MSN-members only by now.
It’s just like him!
hehe too funny!
“…is ALSO a birthday present…”
It’s part of the zoo arc too. c:
That’s peanut there talking to people in the fox pen, or something. owo
where DID he get that computer? o_o
Bahaha, what a silly fox. X3
I love the Java joke. X3
I don’t get the Java joke. Anyone care to enlighten me?”
Thats a coffee machine on top of the computer, and he’s trying to plug it into the computer.
No no no… the second keyword is Java too, a famous plug in catalyst software for PC’s.
I was assuming that everyone here knew about the software Java because, as you said, it’s famous.
Pannel 3 seems iffy…
I can only imagine the scenario of panel 3…
New guy is annoying all the other foxes, one decides to “dissuade” him/make fun of him or something by mooning him, and he only turns it around by grabbing his tail and asking someone else to hold it.
That’s all I can think up that seems logical, other then him sneaking up on the fox and grabbing the tail, which is kinda unlikely because, for me, THAT is the kind of person I’d keep my eye on ALL the time.
It’s kinda funny how you perfectly described him with your ‘unlikely’ scenario
hehe… He seems like the kind of guy to take an insult and turn it around, while seeming completely oblivious to the fact that he was being insulted.
Unless you were talking about the “sneaking up” thing, which is the one I find completely unlikely =P.
No, no, the second one is more like him, though I wouldn’t put it past him to do either.
Funny . . . Only problem is I know people like that . . .
rofl… Java plug-in.. ahahahahahahaha…. thats a riot… Now the question really IS … “wait.. Where did he get a computer?!” … Maybe he snuck out and stole it or something.. or maybe he bought it over the zoonet. lol or maybe he bribed someone some how to buy him one?.. i just wonder what kinda bribe would it have been?… lol
Panel 3…I’ve done that to people. Just randomly grab something that belongs to someone else, hand it off, and walk away like nothing happened.
Finally we get to the fox’s, I felt so alone without them… but Grape’s a great substitute!
Well, theres Firefox, but wheres Thunderbird?
Also there’s USB coffee makers out there ya know xD
That perfectly fits Kari alright. ^.^
With Kari, that thing coulda come from anywhere.
oh my god. that’s so epic with kari =3 ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
The 3rd panel makes me murr…. >.> *cough*
It’s clearly a USB connection using a liquid-induction adapter. Drizzle lightly over CPU at 350 F for 20 seconds, muck out with garden rake, allow to cool for two minutes. Serves one just right.
Wait what? Where did the mucking out come into it?
wow… this guy doesn’t know how to make a decent joke… I had to read it two-three times to get what he was trying to do… still funny tho! ^^
HA HA LMAO
LOL! i was TOTALLY confused too i mean i was like “? O.o i thought we were at the Zoo.” and then i saw the comments and then i understood why there was like a fence between the fox and Peanut! i was like LOL i got it now! anyway this is the funniest comic i’ve EVER read next to VGcats and Girls with Slingshots lol. Great drawings by the by
Hehe, looking at it I thought pannels three and four were meant to be linked [like he was asking for someone to hold the tail so he could insert the Java plugin XD]
Course pannel 3 could also be a play on situations. A foxes tail is often called a Brush [hence the character Basil Brush,] so he could be “holding a brush” and wanting someone to hold it for him.
ah… ok, he must be REALLY sneaky then =P
so… that means that foxes can mate with and bare the children of both cat’s and dogs? because dogs and wolves can mate and bare puppies…. thus if foxes have as much in common with cats as wolves have with dogs…. something is wrong with your artical
No – i said they have some traits, but their genus is NOT feline. Like cats, they can climb, and their eyes function in a very similar manner, among other things. But these are not because they are related to felines.
However, a fox has rather poor vision, like many canines (with some exceptions), and relies primarily on it’s hearing and smell, which is VERY acute. Typically, a fox can NOT breed with a cat (I’m sure somewhere, somehow, there will someday be an exception to this, just because, if I make it an absolute) – they CAN, in theory, breed with other canines, but it’s highly unlikely one would ever do so.
Dogs and wolves, on the other hand, can mate because they are VERY closely related – every single domesticated dog in the world today can trace its ancestry back to wolves and other wild canines, because they were captured and domesticated by humans. Those “dogs” lived very different lives than their feral cousins, and evolution & selective breeding have added up to create a different species in the same genus. They’re only separated by a few thousand years of evolution at best – a drop in the bucket as far as nature cares. Hence, dogs and wolves can breed.
This is my last response to this, as I don’t think Rick wants major debates going in these posts. Should probably be taken to the forums, or if you still have questions, hit up Wikipedia or some other encyclopedias – you’ll get a few answers there, too.
