So Much for rich and glory!!
God only knows what Miles is gonna do now to poor ol Thomas b4 Miles hands Thomas over to the cops! A torture scene perhaps, dunk him in cold water, force his eyes open, tied down to a chair and watch nothing but the fabulous life of Rock and Thomas on VH1 over and over again!!
opps i meant Lana!
So that’s what those big muscles are for! xD
Lol, either a modestly good distance to the pool, or she’s has a texting speed faster than 100wpm.
Maybe he’ll have better luck next time, if he’s not thrown into jail first.
Ferrets would have smaller hands so they should be able to type on those tiny keyboards more easily and faster than using big thumbs.
and that’s what we like to call an:
…followed by an EPIC FLAIL.
And then EPIC JAIL
noth y0u guyzz Phail *falls down drunk* =3
What can I say? The common pun is a failment that affects us all.
I doubt he will be able to afford to pay the EPIC BAIL.
And this is why I love the comments. Because of all the horrible, horrible wordplay.
Ain’t it EPIC, Zaffa?
then you’ll love/hate (?) this!
Get back, write braille
Get jailed, jump bail
Join the army, if you fail
(this is a lot funnier and more relevant if you look at the comments for “and now back to the show”, January 5th)
Wow didn’t expect such a recation to my post but then again those two words can grab anyone’s attention.
Oh yes it can
oh yes what can?
All of these comments are EPIC WIN!!!
Totally unrelated but… Do they live in Florida? they mentioned a court case in one strip that was the state of Florida v. something i forgot what.
It was snowing on November 17, 2008, so I’m guessing “no”
Actually its snowing in Florida now, as well as here in Mississippi.
I know I always put the date, but in this particular case, I meant that it wasn’t snowing in Florida in November, and it wasn’t snowing in 2008. Therefore, it is very unlikely they live in Florida
his mustache is visable through the mask o_o…O_O
you kidding? he made a space in his mask for his ’stash, can’t be wrecking it now .
…you know his mustach matches quite well with his facemask
Yeah! I hadn’t noticed until now that they are the same color!
Okay, I’m sorry. Am I missing something from an earlier plot? Why would getting to the pool save his sorry hide?
Diggin’ through the archives, but I’m still not finding it.
Is lost could use help plzkthx
If you notice the background of the pool room the “window” that leads outside seems to line up with the pool, which suggests that one could swim outside that “window”.
Other than that, I have no other ideas.
Umm… but wouldn’t that allow the water to get out the window?…
Agh! Stupid cartoon physics!
Escaping a house by swimming the length of a double olympic pool that leads to the wintery outdoors? Dunno, something in there seems like a bad idea.
Of course! He didn’t bring his swimming suit!
I think it’s a pool with half of it covered by the building. I’m not entirely sure what use that would be, but it sounds much better than a window.
He probably thinks that Wolves cant swim.
Maybe, but they could still camp around it and wait for him to get out.
Never said that he was a bright guy. He blew through his own fortune after all.
And invested in a pneumatic tubes company.
That one worked out for him, though!
the sweet irony! He could have made a small fortun with the pneumatic tubes for the ferrets instead of being wolfed down!
Watchmen of Loaded Ferrets
hehe! way to go Miles!
Didn’t think he’d get “this” Job
MILES = AWESOMENESS!!!!!!!!!!!
Agreed. And darn you I was going to use that pic.
HAHA! U phale more than Thomas!!!
It’s ok. Have also had something else in mind. XP
I’m a darned sock tube
Holy crap he’s lifting up a grown man with one hand.
No wonder that one guy freaked out when Miles first tried talkin to people
got bdguy lol bbq nao?
OMG, LOL! BBQFTW!
i wish i were more computer-acronym literate…
surely theres some face that would go well at the end of this comment
NobodyYouKnow, where did you get the avatar for Fnar?
on the issue called “Someone’s Favorite Thing”. i just used the print screen button to copy it to paint and then i edited it to just show the last panel and got rid of the “ttfn” sign. then i saved it and uploaded it as my avatar.
That is awesome Hawtness. The Wolf not the badguy in the shimmy diving position
*sigh* some humans are soooo lucky
I think the pool scene might be a reference to Metal Gear Solid, you know the part at the very beginning of the game wear snake has to sneak past the guards to get to the elevator but if he get’s caught he has to jump in to the water and wait for the timer to countdown.
Too bad Miles is smarter than an army of poor AI guards, eh?
Too bad for Thomas that is.
Wait, Miles understands texts? (Enter Thoth)
Hey, yeah Thoth, and when you get there, maybe you can tell us where Miles is keeping his cellphone / pager / whatever he’s receiving the text message on, ’cause it sure aint his collar!
I would assume he keeps it in his green vest-y thingy.
“Hey guy! Say hi to MR. WEDGIE!”
*bad guy gets away, but with the humiliation of losing HALF HIS UNDERPANTS!*
Sorry, couldn’t resist. It looks like he’s holding him right around there, though. And BOY IS THOMAS EVER LONG to span TWO WHOLE PANELS!!!!
So they turned the pool room into something more literal as well, right? (please nobody start a discussion on pool vs. billards)
You’ve been snookered!
that comment is made of win … too bad I’m too sick to think of anything
Okay, I’m not going to say anything just because that was such a good one
You got owned man !
Miles = Wolf Chuck Norris
“That was fun !
I’m texting the guards now”
That HAS to be one of the best lines in Webcomic History.
1) Lana is hilarious.
2) The alt txt fits so well.
3) EPIC FAIL!!!
4) Did Miles just happen to be at the swimming pool when he got the txt or was there enough time in between for him to run there or is Miles JUST THAT FAST? (I’m hoping he’s just that fast)
5) A two hundred pound man (estimate) being held up by a 150 pound wolf (also estimate)… HOW MUCH CAN MILES PRESS, MAN!?
k, i’m done now.
considering those biceps, man, it’s no wonder at all!
I’m still wondering how fast Lana can type!
she sent Miles a text mesage in that short amount of time after all.
We don’t know how long between the panels.
i think we can assume that the ferrets would just looooooove to spend a bagajillion dollars to make the distance between the pool and the kitchen as superfluously long as possible, filled with tube socks and pneumatic tube plans, and all the stuff we saw in the background of the tube sock episode
I thought that was just a single hall separate from both the kitchen and pool area used just for the purpose of banging into things and breaking them with a sock over your head?
In Olympic-related news… http://www.ctvolympics.ca/luge/news/newsid=39315.html
I’m sure many of you have heard of this tragic accident, but a Georgian luger was killed during a test run. Check the link for more info and a recording of said accident.
@Spirit Sudios 2010
Look at the comment I left below about how physically impossible it is for Miles to stop him so fast…
ah, slapstick, is there nothing you can’t funny up?
The Donner Party. Other than that, you’re golden.
The Pool is Closed
DAT IS 1 HOT BUSTY WOLF!!!
Ha well he has to be in shape to keep “Epic Faliures” like Thomas at bay!!
I TOLD you that’s why they called it the Pool Room.
Oh dear. I hope Thomas doesn’t get fed to the cubs.
At this stage of the game? They’ll probably force him to play video games! (Yes, that is “against the laws of nature in ways that even I cannot understand.”)
Besies, he would make the cubs sick. he is definantly “ROTTEN” meat.
I don’t think it to be physically possible to stop a 72Kg man with a momentum of 146 Kg*m/s that quick without falling in with him… er… has Newton would probably state…
And now, somewhere, Domo-kun has killed a kitten.
That wouldn’t surprise me… Domo-Kun looks dangerous…
now imagine that it is physically possible for Miles to stop him that fast, and you’ve started to touch on just how strong Miles is .
you also do not consider that he was at the apex of his jump and may have made a more upward jump, instead of a straight forward one, in an effort to look more dramatic, turning his momentum at that moment in time to a rather low number, and all Miles really had to do was hold his weight.
this is going to sound reallllllllly of topic, but if ada is reading this, reply, because i have to ask you a question
and then he finds out that they freeze the pool like that because it’s fun to skate over the bumps … good thing miles stopped him .
all right. last thing you wanna hear fro mme #2
OMG THE MUSCLES! *drools*
There are a bunch of suggestions for why he went for the pool.
I haven’t seen this one yet – maybe it was to lose his scent trail?
first of all, you where posting at 1:58 this morning?
second of all, that is an interesting theory
i’d also comment about how your name is Anonymous, but i guess im really not in the position to do that, seeing that my name is equally obscure
a well trained tracking dog will prove to you that this doesn’t work, because your sent will poll in any and all areas on the water’s surface that it can, this will be places along the bank, any little eddy in the stream, and anywhere that the water pools up… like in a pool, small stream, or lake… and entering one does not wash away your scent, the instant you leave it, you begin to leave another easily tracked trail, your actually much better off mingling with other human scents, such as a large town or city, where your smell may become confused with other ones.
Goodness be!!! Miles is strong!!!!
I just had a scary thought…
When this guy goes to jail, does he get turned into another one of Pete’s pets? It wouldn’t surprise me; he seems to have the same kind of problems that Joel/King had.
It was stated near the beginning of the arc that Pete wouldn’t touch this guy if you paid him, so it seems unlikely he’d be transformed.
Would blackmail convince Pete otherwise? >:3
What? Dang it, how’d I miss that?
Okay, now I gotta go back and check.
Okay, I went back and checked, and this is what I’ve come up with:
IF the alt text is to be taken definitively, then you’d be right; it won’t happen. I understand that.
However, one must consider the source of one’s evidence along with the evidence itself. Based on the content of the alt texts I’ve seen around here, the general purpose of them seems to be nothing more than taking their respective jokes a half-step further.
With that in mind, it still wouldn’t surprise me to see Pete make an appearance.
i just can wait for the next part,im just hooked to this comic now lol
The woof should have stomped him into pulp!
Buff wuffs are hawt
I believe you mean buff wuffs are, um… huff.
