I wish my GPS was as accurate
Also is it just me or is this referencing something?
Read the Gryphon arc from last November, you’ll see it.
Still flew right over my head… Explain?
When Grape and Peanut first saw the Gryphon they had to get directions from an old guy that only spoke in Limericks.
so he…. does exsist?
this is getting more interesting all the time o.O
oops… no edit button… hehe ^^;
Crazy Man Who only Speaks in Limericks FTW
anyone else notice the fist in the background of the last panel.
ummmmmmm whats with that?
It… It’s not right… Two thumbs?
Yes, Well, It Might be a Genetic Mutation of the Giant who’s been Buried there for 1,000~10,000 Years. But thats just on a Slight offchance Rick decides to Draw Somthing i Suggested. (Or Did I?)
maybe not, the one thats tucked in could be the crease your hand gets when you do that.
Ha poor Rick, all we are doing is critiquing his artwork, jeez
Yeah, We should be, He’s doing a Good Job.
See November 21st of last year: “we under a rock outcropping that was shaped like a fist”
YES ELMER FUDD(plz let me spell that right) LOL
Ive always loved the Looney Tunes!
Not all that good at poems though
Never knew how to rhymn
But just to let you know
Something that stands the test of time
Just keep your head low
And never trust a mime
plz don’t hurt me
I know what you mean, those mimes are crafty
You of course realize the mime assassin is after you now.
Not the most subtle of limericks, but subtility is lost when there’s a giant stone hand.
Ehhehe… I remember this XD, I successfully called the bluff that time, but this time I don’t think it is… This could get interesting …
I just wonder what grape did with that feather… Does she still have it?
Well, at least they didn’t have to answer he these questions three!
I love how you can tell who the newcomers to the comic are.
Mind explaining, anyone? I read through the archive, and I don’t remember this guy.
Flew over your head did it?
You must look At the Background In Panel #4,
Then you will realize what the Old man Says,
Is all True. (The Way you Seek Is in Hand, So it Seems)
Also Thats a Left hand. So yeah it Makes Sense.
Gotta Love how you Can tell the New guys from the Non.
Norm* Bad Typo. Baaad!
Arr nom nom nom nom!
Ummmmmmmm……….i was think he meant the feather Grape had. “the path you will find is the one in your mind, and the one in your hand, so to speak” I thought that meant the way she said it was a dream (in your mind) then pulled the feather out(in your hand). if that doesn’t make sense then i would like to know.
I at first thought it meant “look at the hand you’re holding something with”. Her flashlight is in her right hand, which is the old man’s left. The “in your mind” probably refers to how she thinks it’s all “oddly familiar”, In other words: if in doubt, look through your most obscure memory.
Wait…Peanut seems confused.
Does he still remember how to speak Akkadian?
Meh probably not
WHERE ARE YOU TAKING US, RICK?
Toboe! Come back to the forums!
I feel loved!
I tawt I taw a putty tat!
*looks at Grape*
I did! I did taw a putty tat!
That’s “Thufferin’ Thuccotath” to you.
Don’t we all just love how blissfully ignoran
little Peanut is?
“No, they’re just being ignorant!”
Hooray for the old man who speak in limmerics!
Oh Yes, Before i Forget. -Slaps you Upside the Head for Kicking me into the Eternal Pit of death-
If your in the pit of death, how cab you hit me?
I Respawned. Durr. How ELSE?!
It took him so long to respawn because he had so may betrayals. It’s too bad because one more, and he would have gotten the Benidict Arnold Untouchable medal.
Aww COME ON! ONE MORE?! WHY DIDNT I SEE THAT?! I WANTED THAT MEDAL!
i don’t know the old man speaks in limericks.
A medal for being evil. Sign me up! And who did Firewing betray?
I.. Umm.. NO ONE! AAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaahhh! -Runs away Screaming-
-Falls into the Pit of death again-
Aww man, I missed him! I was hoing to get the point for that one. Oh well, see you in seven seconds.
*Beep. Beep. Beep. Booop!*
-Respawns.- OH SH–
-Gets headshotted by a Splazer-
YES! WOOT! IN YOUR FACE
score one for the noob
*jumps around in circles like an idiot*
BlueAnubis and Firewing417 don’t tell me you’re acting like it Halo 3
Throws a Frag Grenade at Cerberus, and yes rWolf, we are.
*stops dancing* Huh?
*picks up grenade* Ummm?
*yells* Hey!! Did somebody drop this?
Im sure you know what comes next.
Beep Beep Beep Boooop
laser, double kill
*shoots some random guy* SINGLE KILL! SINGLE KILLINGSPREE! SINGLE SPREE SPREE! SINGE SPREE SPREE SPR-*brickd for stupidity*
Beep… Beep… Beep… Boop
Respawns are only for nerds that memorized the layout of every Halo level.
Oh, I really like where this is heading. I’m not sure Peanut will be able to translate the tablet, though. If Grape remembers what he said in the dream, things could get a little convoluted in terms of explanations.
Yeah, because it was a dream… or was it?
Well, can you think of a better word to describe it…?
Not a ‘word,’ per say, but here goes… “Weird Reality In Which Everything Seemed Like a Dream, But It’s Not Because You Had a Feather In Your Hand When You ‘Woke Up.’” Does that work?
How about “…because it’s Rick at the steering wheel, and he’s driving under the influence of… his brother”
Is this going to lead to some sort of epic quest where Peanut, Grape, and Zack have to get ye flask?
But they can’t get ye flask
Exits are North, South, and Dennis.
The Old man who speaks in Limmerics Is FTW. So is Peanut & Grape.
Oshi- do we get to see the gryphon again?
Wonder if Grape still has that feather, and if Peanut still knows how to read… What was it? Akkadian?
I think we all can say we knew that we’d get a second coming of the griffon soon.
Oh, and Limerick Man (*plays the MM2 Robot Master Theme*) needs a bath.
It’s all coming together.
Grape must be thinking Peanut can still read Akkadian xD
Ooof, I forgot about the feather.
wait a sec…. “A rabbit, gray colored, you seek?” … i thought zachs fur was a light pink…? (hex triplet #F1E4FC using 11/6/2009 comic as reference…)
..ok yeah.. im over-analyzing this…
well if i tilt my laptop monitor back he looks purple …. hehe ..
seems familiar? YES i was right ^-^ i aint gunna bring it up again, might spoil it XD
LOL i like the way this comics going first it was like: GRA-APE! The Wii Remote is out of Batteries, Mom And Dad are out of The House And Im Bored and now its the entire neighborhood looks for Zach and he is going to be crowned king or something XD
Peanut: All HAIL the RAINING King!
Grape: * Slams bag over Peanut’s head*
Yes hoorah for paper bags with funny hats drawen on then.
even THEN the art was good XD
WOO! To adventure!!!
“Anyways, you need people of intelligence on this type of mission…quest …thing.”
I guess that rules you out, Peanut! XD
Rofl, perfect timing on that comment, my friend! ^.^
So be it.
You shall be the Fellowship of the Feather”
“Great…….where are we going?”
Sry to stretch it but we had to finish the scene.
“The door, Grape, is it left or right?”
Are those flys or moths coming off the old man?
They’re flies. Classic cartoon way to show something smells much worse than it looks. Moths are usually white, and tend to come out of empty wallets
And the gnarled old oak! XD This is gettin’ goooooood! I knew that finding that feather was foreshadowing something. =3
I hope the wolves are in the search party. I think they can smell prey miles away. Maybe I’m just exaggerating. Not saying they will hurt Zach or anything.
*makes a Flap Jack face as a chorus sound all around her* ADVENTURE!!!!!!!
dangit! I was gonna do that! >_< lol
Yeah yeah yeah, adventure.
Wait, last time the griffin appeared, the storyline ended in time for Thanksgiving. That means we only have three more strips!
Ever since i saw the movie deliverance I am afraid of the backwoods. Grape is a brave girl.
Took me a few seconds, but I finally got the reference. Excellent, it looks like Pete WASN’T a dream.
Riiick, that is a sloppy hand.
It’s not a hand, it’s a fist-shaped rock
*shrugs* It’s a sloppy fist-shaped rock.
Haha! Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference, right?
I don’t know, but there had better be the questions three at some point in the arc.
What is your name?
What is your quest?
What is the airspeed velocity of an unladden sparrow?
African or European?
I do not know that.
Wandering through the woods in the dead of night…
Husky-men who speak in riddles…
Looney Toons References.
THAT IT. I gota go read the original Gryphon story arc. Reality, sense, and reasoning are slipping away…
Since when were they within grasp?
o-o um that old man is weird and the hand is so helpful x3
… just the crazy old limeric man
YAY! IT’S ALL THERE! PETE’S GONNA BE BACK! http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/11/21/and-she-said-it-had-no-practical-value/ (link for the lazy)
Why is it always the creepy smelly looking old dudes that gives you riddles?! Why not to a hot looking girl instead XD
Because that is way too simple.
Then no one would pay attention to the riddle. Your mind would travel, if you catch my drift.
Actually, that was kind of the logic behind the sphinx: she was half a hot girl, and people never were able to answer her riddles; thereby appeasing her other half: the vicious, muderous predator.
Ok, (Griffins + Housepets) x Sphinx = Way too much mythology together. Forget I spoke.
Oh-ho-ho-ho! I Will not foget what you Said. More Mythology? I WUNTS ETT! You must make rick put AT LEAST Some sort of Other mythological Creature other then Pete, Not saying Pete isnt enough, Buuuutt.. 83
It’s Dangerous To Go Alone! Take This.
*Grape acquires a Wooden Sword*
GameCobra! Also come back to the forums(although you never really left)!
I’m always there!
Just not currently as active as i use to be. but i’ll post more <3
Wuh oh, hope they’ve paid up on their adventurer insurance :3
Oh $#!7, I leg mine expire.
Keep posting stuff like this i really like it.
Woo Hoo! One hundred and first!
… I still dont get it…
…I’m not sure about this one… seems like Peanut and Grape are about to upstage everyone else in a story arc that previously wasn’t ultimately about them.
Would someone explain to me why Grape is talking in Elmer Fudd?
Actually, this strip isn’t getting random at all! It’s just making more references to the past! For those who are still confused: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/11/21/and-she-said-it-had-no-practical-value/
Hehe, Peanut’s expression in the last panel, I can’t stop staring at it. ~xD
I see a PETE reference!
Oh don’t tell me i made that VG cats joke for not? Jeez going on about vidgames and i have to introduce VG cats. Fine
Your lives are now closer to completion. Your Welcome
I saw no vgcats reference….
It’s spelled “naught”. And I didn’t see a reference either… and I re-read all your comments on this page.
I find spelling irrelivant as long as the point is made.
and the reference is my grenade post and this comic
it kills the joke since i have to tell you
When you mispell somthing, you offend the powers that be.
Ah… ITS ALL CLEAR TO ME NOW!!! I mistook that for a ctrl+alt+del reference.
