I love it!! The wolf is so cute, and so is the ferret.
You MUST be a new reader.
defintutalutsy new reader
tho the wolf is fabluso
Because everyone in the comic is cute?
Next he should invent the internet! And then post comic strips on it!
Of course! GENIUS!
let’s just hope he doesn’t invent microsoft…
Huh… smart, and funny that they exploit and jump through loopholes, anybody willing to do that for a good cause is awesome, and even more so since he’s a ferret!!
Your humanish job it to INVENT TELEVISION. O!O
But it’s already been invented! D:
-=[ INVENT TELEVISION ANYWAY! ]=-
SUPER TELEVISOIN :O
Invent Omega-Definition where you’re put inside the movie!!!
Virtual Reality has already been–
*SMACK* No. It has not.
Perhaps he could invent….
*sees frizbee fly by and chases*
I imagine Keene sounding like Jack Black in the last panel for some odd reason…
Listen to the crazy-drunk normally-prey ferret whose giving you a chance to live a better life.
Ferrets are predators
…hehe, that ferret is probably more burping than dooking^^…
I think TLV was probably referring to Miles being a ten times larger predator…
They can invent the taco,too!
How deep is that seat, exactly?
Deep enough for a ferret to be up to his knees in it?
That’s some soft-padding!
Ya gotta love loopholes.
Hey …. he has his glasses on all the time.
What a cool guy =3
They’re secretly attached to his face
That alt text is portmanteautally awesome.
I’m going to have to make sure that I use it some time tomorrow.
“Pet in Name Only” is now the new name of my band.
In other news: I’m liking Keene. He’s so totally all over the place with his ideas! Hehe!
And Miles is still awesome.
Or rather, “Pet on Paper Only”. D’oh. I should re-read things before I post every now and then, eh?
For some reason. I really wish Miles will work as a policewolf and become Fido partner. It’s would be COOL!
You might be on to something there. Assuming that the wolves can gain acceptance, police work might be pretty ideal for them. They can work as a pack(squad) hunting down prey(criminals); only thing that they’d have to be careful about is bringing them in alive.
You invented a new plot line!
Yeah, if that idea isn’t explored I for one will…will…
…Well, I’ll be very sad, that’s what.
Plot-line too thick.
Yay for loopholes!
Amen mah brothah or sistah!
(you’re not very specific)
I’m hoping ‘invent television’ -was- just an example and not the job they’re contracting him to do, otherwise this could get a little awkward. That said, he might be able to convince them with a Baird mechanical TV or something, if you can keep the scanning disks in sync it’s fairly basic…
TV aside, the whole setup is ringing a couple of alarm bells, for instance the possibilities of cheap labour exploitation are endless. Here’s hoping the ferrets don’t suddenly freak out on some kind of power trip.
Ferrets don’t freak out on power trips.
Ferrets freak out on power STRIPS.
Ow, that smarts.
and I shall invent… SLICED BREAD
…sounds like the best thing since COOKED MEAT…^^ ;P
Really? I was thinking of food in general.
Hmm, your Sliced Bread and Cooked Meat intruege me… I have it! I shall put them TOGETHER! I will call it… A Sandwhich!
…whenever I see Miles, I keep thinking he’s Fox’s long lost brother or something. A freakishly beefed up brother, but that’s beside the point.
Sorry Miles but I think I just invented Television….
Miles is so expressive both with body language and words!
He’ll certainly be shaken, and breaken, and achen like humans do. Interestingly enough, there’s also a song by that same name by David Ryrne. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuY4FR-bmGY
Who knows? Maybe miles will even end up as a teacher, or maybe even part of the president’s cabinet . . . No, wait, that’s Hank “Beast” McCoy.
Miles’ expression in the third panel is fantastic! Any way we can get a shot of that sans text?
Is it just me or does he look like he has woman parts in that panel? >>
Nope (I’m sure you’re not alone); and surely nope. Good eye, though.
The ferret reminds me of gene wilder as willie wonka… “Invent Televison!” “You get nothing!” I see it being said the same way…
That out of the way… i love how the wolf is wearing his seat belt, yet the ferret is all over the car.
Ok, I must speak up; Your av is soooo friggin adorable! Of course Kota-kun would kill anyone involved if he ever saw that…
I’m so glad that someone knows where it is from!! I fell in love with Kota ever since he showed up in the manga, so I was overjoyed that they actually made him a main character… and so when I found this picture… had to have it!
I love the demand to invent television. *Hugs Keene* Eccentric ferrets rock!
AHH!…the television…INVENTED BY SCOTLAND! :3
Absolutely. Do a google search for “Baird mechanical television”. It was replaced by CRT systems after WW2, but he had it working in the 1920s.
I think who invented the television, where and when is highly debatable. Also debatable is what would define a “television.”
It was invented by John Logie Beard in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. John was a great scientist who longed for the television to be real. Even though he invented the television and changed the world completely, his graduation from University was delayed during WW1
Panel 4: MAGICAL VOODOO DISSAPEARING LEGS!
Apart from that, awesome!
NOT VOODOO SILLY DRAKEL! There is just a hole in the seat! xD
Also, Miles’s knees are super knobby
“On paper” means LEGALLY, so this is ten times bad for Miles.
Wolves as police would invite so many brutality lawsuits it would not be funny. Wait…maybe it would….
Of course, this has all been figured out at a level far higher than ours. *Peers at Rick*
Miles seems to be pretty with it, and I daresay smarter than Keene. My guess is he’s either wangled some kind of contract clause to protect himself or he thinks it’s worth taking the risk.
hehe he seems to have sobered up a little since the last few panels
“Pet in Paperwork Only” Sounds like there could be recurrences.
MILES SHOULDN’T HAVE ENTERED THAT CONTRACT!
And now I’ll go off on something else.
I thought they were grey but their blue!
Ferrets and money – a dangerous combination!
Hey! Is not!
That’s just a recipe for FUN
Or ripped up money that makes you SAAAD.
Ah, that’s what I love about this comic. There are so many “furry” stories out there where the animals/anthros whatever could be swapped out with humans and there’s be no differences. Even a few have some stereotypical traits, but other than that, nothing. But here? The animals don’t always “get” humans. They try, but they’re still a little bit off.
Notice how Miles doesn’t say he CAN’T invent television, just that it’s already been done.
it’s easy to invent stuff if you have a working example right in front of you.
… but then it isn’t necessarily INVENTING…
Hey, I’ve noticed something. The artist included a few wolves in the “Zoo” arc, but it looks completely different compared to this.
Wolf taking an exam. HILARITY ENSUED! X3
I wish someone would invent emo grass that cut themselves. So what humanish job be suited for a pack of wolves?
i direct you to the above post by “Someone,” about Miles’s possible future in the police, but that would be too obvious…
he should open a BOOKSTORE!
Or better yet…
A FAST-FOOD RESTAURANT!!!
Fresh meat every day! ^^
real life should have a GOE… for people. that would be awesome.
Ferrets are sweet 80’s businessmen! He’s convinced me to invent TV too.
its my imagination of miles is getting more muscular every comic? XD
Ferrets sure can lean forward pretty far when drunk. Keeping balance must suck
I can’t get over how muscular Miles is. I want a woofy!
Also, seat-belted wolf :3
