Haha lol Grape!!
Hey …. There’s a monty python reference RIGHT THERE! =D
Ahahahahaha…. And THEN I read the flavor text
Two references if you count “And now for something completely different.” foot stomp.
I thought that was a curb stomp?
I feel happy! I feel ha-*CRUNCH*
ROFL, Monty Python reference XDXDXD
BTW, is anyone else besides me having the same problems? I can’t see the recent stuff (it seems to only go to the cat/dog food strip) or click the next button unless I go into the comments first.
I am, i just have to go to a different comic and then i can go to the most recent one (normally just click a random archive entry)
I had pretty much that happen outside my window once, bird flew into it then my dog whacked it one, lol, poor birdie.
likewise. I keep getting Show and Tell first.
Help us Rick! Use your magic to fix the internet!! Then cure the common cold and make people in forums make sense!
“The Internet’s broken!”
“I highly doubt that. The Internet is a globally connected network of computers transferring data to and from each other constantly. It can’t be broken.”
A special treat for you if you can get that reference, and another one if you can correct if for me!
The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, in the London Webshow episode?
have you tried clearing your cookies? i had the same issue then dumped my cookies and temp files and it went away
Deleted scene: Grape says, “Look, a dead bird!” Maxwell, looking up, says, “Where?”
Monty Python and oblique Calvin and Hobbes–not bad for a Wednesday.
I’m sure you can split the birdy. Or just give it to grape. She might give you a kiss because of it.
oooo, Monty. I approve of it.
Monty Python FTW
Max! Be a gentleman… gentletom… gentlecat… whatever it is
Ladies first + finders keepers rule = Grape gets it.
[sarcasm]Grape is a GIRL!?[/sarcasm]
The bird hitting windows thing is actually more true than most cartoon jokes…a chock-lot of ‘em seem intent on killing themselves by hitting stuff like trees and electrical poles where I come from.
And leave bird shaped smears on windows. At least at my house.
Are those smears white with bits of food in them?
A while ago, I was sitting in my mom’s van with her while I was waiting for her to finish texting on her phone (since you can no longer use phones if they aren’t hands-free while you’re driving) when a bird delivered a certain “present” on the recently-washed vehicle right beside us. That really startled us, as 1)it could have hit us and 2)we obviously weren’t expecting that.
Naw. It definitely wasn’t that. And I could definitely confirm that it was a bird splat because of the carcus outside the window. They go bonk all the time on the windows.
Also, don’t park under trees. Birds have a field day with one’s car.
I’ll be honest that crunch made me wince. Just the brutality i guess. Love the Monty reference and yes, Monty Python is an epicenter of comedy.
Cats are brutal. That’s the cold hard truth.
And they always shoot first. Han Solo is definitely a cat. Probably a puma.
And they always shoot “1″st. Han Solo is definitely a cat. Probably a puma.
Hey, I like that solution! Let’s just hope the people who caused the word to become forbidden don’t find out.
People are saying this is a Monty Python reference. I don’t watch Monty Python so I don’t see it. Only thing I know from Monty Python is, “I’m a Lumber Jack”.
Oh Rick! You must do a comic where the whole cast dances together! That… would… be… EPIC!!!
Go to YouTube and watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail, that’s where this reference came from.
“Now for something completely different: The dog with six legs.”
Backstage manager: “He ran away!”
“Well then, now for the cat with three noses.”
Cat with three noses: *Blows nose* *Blows nose on stomach* *Blows nose on elbow*
And we must always remember this: BEWARE THE WEB’S WONDER! Though you may only get a flesh wound.
It’s only resting…
” This sir, is a late parrot!.”
ahh the dead parrot sketch
This makes two things that can talk that Grape has murdered! I wonder if the animals (not the corn) that goes into the pet food could talk too. That’s a disturbing thought.
Remember the strips when they’re at the farm? “I’m gonna eat you….!”
And anyone who has a cat knows that this is completely in character.
Maybe it’s just me, but is Grape really that cruel? hmm, maybe… depends…. *ponders on this and falls over* ack!
Grape isn’t cruel. Grape’s just a cat. It’s the same thing she did with the head of the mousey revolution.
Pesky food chain…
XD I totally read that line like Monty Python before reading the sub-text thingie.
Oh, wow. Does anyone else recognize the Calvin and Hobbs strip this is from? That one made me cry years ago…Housepet’s version makes me laugh so hard!
I’m getting better! I feel happy!
Ah, nature, survival of the ruthless.
You’re not fooling anyone, you know…
Now Grape should understand why th birds at the zoo threatened to unionize
also, her foot should go ’squish’, not ‘crunch’
Bones don’t go squish.
the big foot does
Wow, the opening credits foot stomp, the “Dead Parrot” sketch, and maybe a “Silly Walk” at the end there? That’s a week’s worth of Monty Python right there!
Did you miss the main Holy Grail reference, or were you just omitting it?
I want dibs on the bird :3
Grape’s face in panel two make the think of her as a purple wolf… now my brain hurts.
lol i always hated birds
Do they keep stealing your quarters?
for every coin, there is an equal and opposite bird
I hate birds too, especially seagulls! Gosh I hate seagulls! One of them stole mah sandwich >:(
They are aggressive when it comes to food. It’s just their way.
hm. and the cycle goes on
i was formerly silver dragon ordinence
i think l’ll switch back
funny and sad for the little bird right there.
LOL was wondering when she was gonna eat someone new XD
poor bird good thing its not someone else bird Lolz;D!
… and, yes…
… there’s a lot of creepiness in the Housepets world, it’s kind of halfway between “Dilbert” and “Kevin and Kell”.
Where it’s digging its own cute little uncanny valley in the emotional landscape.
Calvin and Hobbes and Monty Python! Two great references, one great comic — Housepets!
Lol and thus we are reminded that they ARE still predatory animals. XD
Is it just me, or does that bird look like Henery the chicken hawk?
(a bit late, I know, but I couldn’t remember the name)
