I would complain, but you seem to have beaten me to it…
I didn’t find this funny until the last panel.
Yep, them comics will do that to ya…
Well, then, you’re one up on me. I didn’t think it was funny until I read the alt text.
I hate Peanut’s comic pages! If he could only draw better than I’d even ignore the script…
Well he could draw better…if Rick willed him to.
Remember ’tis only a cartoon character.
Peanut can draw as well as Rick wishes him to draw. That said remember both Peanut and Grape are -kids-. How well do kids draw?
Depends on which kids… i know kids that are miniature picassos!
Peanut’s comics would look worse if they were cubist…
I know what you mean; the only thing separating the dabblers from the masters, in any given field of study, is a willingness to learn.
And I can offer my younger brother as further proof of that; when he was just barely into his teens, he was part of an amateur square-dance team that took first place in a multinational tournament.
He may draw like a child, but he certainly doesn’t write like one. The level of witty repartee Rick allows Peanut to display in his writing sometimes go well beyond the technical skills of his drawing.
You do realize Rick does these Spot comics when he is closing to a deadline with an unfinished comic and needs a filler skit, right?
Peanut’s poor hand drawing gives the perfect excuse to draw them in 10 minutes or less or your meals free!
Spot comics are not always last-minute affairs; sometimes there is a concept that only makes sense coming from a superhero/professor.
Draw better? Peanut’s drawings are better than most people’s in the world.
Actually… he DOES draw better than I do…
Wait, the graph is continuous, it should be discrete… I think I’m proving Rick point in his comic right now…
There could just be a large number of data points with a very high linear correlation.
Also, this comic had an XKCD feel, with the graphs, the cheap art and the self-reference.
Possibly… Comics aren’t suppose to be correct to every last detail so it’s kinda dumb to even get into it that deeply… IDK
Indirect assaults are better made this way. He’s closer to the characters than we are
We’re never going to go back to that orphanage (where everyone grew up at), are we?
You know, the orphanage! Where Spot (Superdog) and his girlfriend were tied up before all those holiday specials and the random intermission scene.
Ooooh, I kinda forgot about that…
I think almost everyone has.
no one can, not with THAT guy XD
At first I read this as Professor Spot (superdog) has an okay day job. Was expecting the joke to be how his day job is not that bad, on the whole.
To paraphrase Grape: “GAH! It was a cop-out! I mean, a Spot comic! ”
Here’s where Grape said (something like) that: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/11/26/maybe-there-was-an-emu/
At this point, we find an implement from the comic.
I love this! I LOL’d.
Yep. That’s what I love about Housepets.
It’s ever random.
…And impossible to plot.
Except on graph paper.
That “ha” at the end explained every thing.
By the way, like the new name?
Yeah, it’s pretty nice… except that you misspelled “ordinance”.
Hey wait, shouldn’t the line in that graph be going downward?
No, because the corner represents zero on both axises. If the line were going downward, it would mean that the more graph jokes there are, the less likely it would be for their authors to preemptively complain about them.
Which doesn’t make any kind of sense, any way you slice it.
The way I’m understanding this, the graph is supposed to be saying “The less graph jokes there are, the more likely authors will preemptively complain about the lack of them to use.”
I suppose it makes sense the other way too though SO HUH.
I’M GOING TO EMULATE KATIE TIEDRICH FOR A WHILE OKAY
Did not get.
genius! he’s avoided complaint and made a not funny joke thats funny cause its not funny and confuses me when i think to hard about it but we can’t complain!
on the downside, everyone’s complaining about not being able to complain. well not everyone, but still
Oh, if only graph theory in real life was like this.
