Ah yes… the always-hilarious “core temperature.”
Reminds me of a Futurama joke I just re-watched recently.
“good news, its a suppository”
Oh jeez, assuming in the Housepets universe animals get their temperatures taken in the same way as ours, that will make for some terribly awkward patient/doctor conversation.
lol pushing the pg rating again
…And tempting certain fans.
And it reminds me of this comic. http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff400/fv00362.htm
Innocent confusion over thermometer placement by people who have never heard of earmometers is an evergreen joke generator
Heck, I didn’t really know of them til I saw the Freefall strip however-many-years-back that “sometime last week” moment was
(but I had been subjected to the … “other” not-in-the-mouth type at some previous juncture, so I’m well equipped to giggle at it. It’s a, eh, most unique experience, is the nicest thing I can say about it).
Same here, tho I kinda suspect the indignity Florence went through and the indiginity Grapse is about to go through are are on two totally different levels.
Next comic: Vet leaves room covered in scratches
Run, Grape, run!
This is your last chance! Dont let him stick it in your…nose?
“‘Nose?’ That don’t rhyme wit’ ‘walls!’”
Roflmao. I JUSt finished watching Who Framed Roger Rabbit! Great Comic btw.
In teh rear :3
4th panel is one of the funniest expressions I’ve seen in a long time.
I just laughed louder than I have in a good while.
LOL, this comic is still in the PG range, I have seen this joke in newspaper comics. Like GET FUZZY
*Rob is using a electric thermometer Satchel’s ear, Bucky walks in with a bad cold*
Bucky “Oh, I did not know that goes in your ear to take the temperature.”
Rob “How did you check your temperature with it?”
Bucky “I knew that you do not put that kind in your mouth…”
*Satchel interrupts* “What are you guys talking about? I cannot hear you with this in my ear.”
Called it sometime last week.
But I called it.
The chance of a mauling has increased to OVER NINE THOSAND!
Agreed with Blackite. Limbs will be lost…
OMG! Someone used that reference in a video and it was HILARIOUS!
…. Doctor! What does the thermometer say about Grape’s core temperature!?
…. It’s OVER NINE THOUSAND!!!!!
Oh my god! Her energy readings are over 9,000!
oh dbz.. ~epic fail
This is gonna end up hilarious.
im a bit clueless…
where does it go if you can’t take the temp through your mouth?
Aww, this comic needs a fifth panel. I am dieing to see her face after his “Try again” xD
i’m guessing the best answer to this is some variant on “lurk moar”… if you don’t know now, it should become apparent reasonably quickly. that, or google / wiki are your frenz.
The title of today’s comic is:
“Then She Points To Her Ear”
Go from there.
You’ll find the answer in the third sentence of Wikipedia’s (current) entry of “Normal human body temperature”.
well babies do it under the armut but animals……well it isn’t pleasent, its lower
like don’t drop the soap lower ((or in a pets case “don’t drop the chew toy”))
Wikipedia it, Sol.
I pity the fool…
Considering where that’s been, does she really want him to take her temp through her mouth.
Well, they AT LEAST sterilize them.
Also, wut wut
suggestion for next panel: http://icanhascheezburger.com/2008/06/25/funny-pictures-thermometer-goes-where/
LOL i wonder if thats what i would have done if i was an animal at a vet XD
“it goes where?!?”
lol, This situation is a classic!
This isn’t going to end well…..
I am sensing imminant blood loss, especially with THOSE claws. That is one of Grape’s best faces EVER!
hehheh, we havn’t even got to peanut yet, hehheh, the Doc gonna need to vist a blood bank after grapes done with him XD
Ouuu, poor Grape, that’s soooo embarrassing
Considering how innocent Peanut seems to be mentally, I think he’s going to have a few mental scars by the time this is done.
While the vet has a few physical ones. >:D
Worst day ever XD
in the bungholio
(beeves and butt head reference)
is so so pretty in the frame number 3 …
Oh noes. XD
Also, I remember the first time I saw this kinda joke was in Dr. Dolittle.
up da but. ew
The deadpan expression of the doctor and grape pointing at her mouth with desperation in her eyes really makes the joke for me. Poor kitty. (^_^)
What doc is holding DEFINITELY is not the kind of thermometer that goes in the ear or on the forehead. (o_o)
there are forehead thermometers?!
Grape is funny. (I thought that you needed a user name for this)
You…you…YA’VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope vets in this universe have good medical insurance.
He finally got some cooperation out of grape, but I don’t think any amount of earned trust can offset the dropping of -this- particular bomb.
With a special guest appearance by… Hugh Grant? Just theorizing.
LOL “try again” win.
