HAHA, oh David Coruso, you tool.
I dun get it
David Caruso plays the character “Horatio Caine” in CSI: Miami. The character’s trademark is to make some sort of pun/wisecrack about the upcoming case and slip on a pair of sunglasses just before it breaks into the intro. (hence the “YEEEEAAAH!” meta-tag)
In this case, an “erudite” is someone who is learned or knowledgeable. an “eROOdite”, would be a kangaroo who is learned or knowledgeable. And it does sound EXACTLY like the kind of thing Caruso’s character would come up with.
To Rick’s credit, it was a clever (if painful) pun.
your explanation makes my brain hurt
I think the one thing that cinches it all… is the fact that spo is also putting on the glasses. That’s what made me chuckle.
Double brain hurt,
but thanx fr explain’in it.
I just noticed that while spo and fido were putting ON their glasses, the other two were taking theirs OFF… Pure AWESOME!
i dont know if you noticed the other pun of CSI concidering the name of the strip is called canine Scene Investigation
Thank you for explaining. It’s amusing, too, because I just tuned into an episode of ‘CSI: Miami’.
whoo CSI MAIMI meets HOUSEPETS OFFICER FIDO!
Link for anyone who doesn’t get the Caruso reference… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sarYH0z948
Fair warning: this probably qualifies as “cruel and unusual”
Hit and Pun
Murder? In MY Housepets??
m-murder??? where? O.O’
AHA! A suspect!
Would not Cthuhlu and Oblivion be more likely to be the murderers than Arcanewinds? >:c I mean come on, you’re a cosmic horror for crying out loud.
who said its yours!
Heh took a little googling to find out the pun Fido put down in the last frame but anyways funny and can’t wait to see where this is heading.
Since “One off” is in the tags, I doubt it’s gonna go anywhere, sorry. ^^
I found this especially funny since a few weeks ago xkcd had a strip that made the same reference and:
1.) Was one big pun/pun setup
2.) Had putting on the sunglasses in the second to last panel
3.) Had the same alt text
I don’t know if this was a coincidence or a reference (to a reference!), but either way, way funny.
(The strip is here: http://xkcd.com/626/)
Its a reference by both comics on the same source, CSI: Miami, and a certain detective’s knack for spitting out corny one-liners before the opening credits. Watch the Soup sometime, they make the joke all the time :B
I love how Ralph and Kevin take off their shades so Fido (and Spo) can have his “Caruso Moment.”
You left off a panel there. Lemme get it
Actually… it’s there, but it’s in the hover text.
……Oh! Now I get it! Funny!
Fido is going to get Mauled for that pun!!
That clinches it… no more CSI Miami for you.
This makes the third comic that I’ve seen using the CSI: Miami theme. And the second one to use dogs.
Is the series finale creeping up or something? There’s gotta be a reason for it…
XKCD, and Dandy & Company?
Thems’d be the ones.
BUAHAHAHA! WHAT A TWIST! MURDER!
Dang! Someone beat me to the David Coruso spoof…
“We DON’T get fooled again!”
…………………… really? o.o horrible puns..
lol even spoo has sunglasses now.
*Ba-dum tss* Ohh, you clever dog you.
One of the things I have to wonder though, Who made Spo’s sunglasses? Did they come with a Barbie or something? (Although they do make him look exponetially more hardcore)
I suppose they’ll have to charge him in Kangaroo Court?
*ow* sorry, one bad pun deserves another
Evil, bad pun.
Looks like this joke…
…has gone to the dogs.
I would just like to point out a little spelling error.
It’s ErUdite, not Erodite.
Looks like that pun didn’t just flew over your head, it went straight into orbit. Scientists have given it a name: The meteor Youdidntgetthejoke.
ErOOdite. A kangaroo who reads books is an erOOdite.
You really shouldn’t have. Seriously.
Time for you to take a ride on your FAIL boat…
I have to ask, since I have been wondering this for a while, why do all the policedogs wear shades? And how come Fido’s are glasses while the other’s are more like goggles?
Probably to help with sun glare. And Fido is cool enough to wear glasses just with his nose.
Apparently it’s just something your average American government agency takes no expense to supply its officials. They buy those shades in bulk.
Probably for aesthetic/psychological effect. Or so I hear.
/golfclap for the pun
man thats so cool XD
LOL Spo with Shades XD
What is it with CSI Jokes all the sudden? They seem to be happening all the time now >.>…
I think people are just starting to notice the pattern. I saw it coming since the first episode I watched, but that’s beside the point.
It can be quite elusive.
i could’nt help but choke in laughter.
crap, this video is not available in my country
hahaha, CSI, I get it. =P
Groooaannnn…….. Mate, that pun is so painful……. they’re almost Rootine after the last few weeks!
nice one ^^
Not another! It’s….too much….tell my mother I love her…..argh…
ARGH!!! And people tell me that I make bad puns…
Don’t worry, though, some of my best ones really are bad.
that challenge, is accepted.
what is a pirate land vehicle?
Omigosh, that is awesome. I laughed so hard when I saw this.
It seems everyone likes to parody the guy from CSI:Miami…
Oh jeez, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to take Fido seriously again ;p.
ROFL Spo put them on too hahahaa
Haha just noticed that. Oh Rick, does your cleverness know no bounds?
The Science of Crime, it’s forensically boring!
That joke should be punishable using the full force of the law. There’s no place for puns that bad in civil society.
You’re right. Without a doubt, this is one of the most punishable offenses to which I have ever bore witness.
I recommend death, by elocution.
*cringe* CSI puns… lol.
That, sir, is the greatest comic sequence I have ever seen. And I really sincerely mean that. Your timing on it is perfect and I cracked up.
Don’t you mean ‘purrrrfect’?
*looks at your previous comment*
ooo i see what you mean … just kidding … bad puns are great
Does everyone watch that show?
Popular show is popular.
Personally I prefer NCIS ; but that’s just me. :]
I’m with you on NCIS, not sure about NCIS:LA though.
ah… geeze…. bad pun is bad –_– still, good comic: spo shades = cuteness and expressions of displeasure and impending beating = hilarity
i like the dog’s expressions in the 2nd panel. they’re fully expecting it, nut that doesn’t make it any less painful.
my bad, 3rd panel.
I think the “We’re looking for one that’s…” should have been in the third panel, and the word “…eroodite.” in the last.
I love Spo’s glasses
Rofl CSI puns XD
csi puns.. XD
and theres SPOO!
I laughed so freaking hard at this. This is hands down my favorite Housepets joke.
A perfect CSI parody. XD
Also Rick still unequivocally proves I’m a Fido fangirlie. He’s so good looking in his gear. <3
OH GOD, THEY ARE LOOKING FOR ME
i love how when Fido has his glasses on his toravish(comrade in Russian) take their’s off XD
I get the ref but I don’t get the pun.
you should change your nick then …
jk jk .. read all the comments … you’ll find some really good explanations .. took me a while to get it too (cause i don’t watch CSI) … but its awesome ..
erudite + kangaroo joke = e ROO dite = eroodite, thats the pun
*holds head* ow…
why are they messing with a kangaroo?
WHy is that rat still with him! Sho little mouse thing!
The police dogs look decidedly hardcore in this strip. Artistic drift FTW!;
The reference was flawless, if a bit PUNishing.;
And Spo… ohh, Spo…
I’d say another amazing strip, but I offer this quote instead:
“WOOT!!! ALL MY 5 R BELONG TO THIS!” – Newgrounds 0-5 Rating Gadget
O U… rofl… we ought to hate you for it, but it had to be done. The Horatio comes to everyone, in the end.
I ought to kill you for that.
look at spo at the top
I feel this is fitting, and Fido… oh you.
Did Spo put on a pair of sunglasses in the last panel?
