  2. Dissension

    That is so awesome!

  3. Cynori

    peanuts scared face is funny :P

  4. Treobearn

    Wow… unfortunately this reminds me of what I would do as a little kid; kill someone off and then say “New person!” and continue the sword fight or hand-combat or what ever

    Love the names thou!

    • Frank

      Really? Whenever we killed someone off, we would make them stand on the sidelines untill there was a change in scenery and a new person was justifiably required. Since nobody wanted to become a shopkeeper, a bus driver, etc, they would invent all sorts of things to avoid being the one killed off before anyone else.

      Using this game as an example:
      “Aaah! Lava wave!”
      “But wait, I have a lava-proof shield in my pocket!”
      “Uh… lava can melt rocks, what in the world would a lava-proof shield be made of?”
      “Ok then, ‘but I saw it comming and dodged it!’”
      “you do realize that you’ve just let the lava melt a part of the boat?”
      “Okay… uh… to the lifeboats! Forget the sofa, go to the armchair!”
      “Why can’t you just let it kill you off?”

      • FuRrY321

        “The armchair melted, too!”
        “Okay then…
        Time for my handy-dandy notebook! Quick kids, draw a solution to our problem to HELP SAVE US!!!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Helicopter bees!

        • Frank

          “What do you mean the armchair melted?”
          “Remember about an hour ago when Max sat down?”

          • FuRrY321

            “No, but I do seem to remember a really foul-smelling fog descending upon us. Wait… wait a minute… ugh!

          • Lucien

            “You see why i also brought the gas mask now this is practical.”
            “Gimme the mask!”
            “Heck no! You can breathe in you gas.”

  5. byt

    I love how the fur looks so fluffy in this strip.

  6. rWolf1991

    No more parachutes Mr Bones!!!!

    • redwolfmatt

      a lifeboat? we’re not sinking… we’re CRAAASHIIIIIING!

  7. GameCobra

    Hey, what do you know! those giant splashes of lava finally claimed a innocent life!

    • Frank

      but how can we know Shor Bread was innocent?

      • Devious_Psychopath

        Plot twist!

        • FuRrY321

          new avvie=Emphasis on twist.

  10. brostudios

    The paper hats are extremely cheap, and funny.

  11. Icharus

    Any game of pretend with Indiana J-… er, Bones and LAVA is a good time.

  12. Valerio


  13. Maark30

    This one is just too cute for words.

  14. Maark30

    This is needs one more character to be perfedt though. Needs more Tarot. Well it seems like a ‘Love Square’.

    • GameCobra

      I don’t think Tarot being here would make the most sense to be honest.

      As fun as it is, i think Tarot may have her own way of showing Peanut her affection, or Peanut showing his.

      Hopefully we see that in the f uture =)

      • Argent Stonecutter

        With Tarot, it’s likely to be “oh, you didn’t want REAL lava… oops”.

        • FuRrY321

          The armchair! Nooo!!!!!!!!

  15. Maark30

    oops typo perfect lol

  16. falcon01

    hehe! love the strip, the Indy refrences are total LOL!
    and…why am I reminded of the origional star trek redshirts tho?

  17. Chip Uni

    …and the best part is that Maxwell and Grape get a little time (just a little!) under the blanket together.

    • Valerio

      you *have* to turn the knife in our wounds, do you?

      • FuRrY321

        At least if she goes under the blanket she “dies”! If she took to long to come back, Peanut would wonder what happened to her. And then he’d kill Max!
        (Not that I want him dead, of course! I like Max, just not when he’s coming between Peanut and his love!)

    • Foxstar

      It’s a game. Guys don’t read so much into it.

      • ShadyKitsune

        We will read as much into as we want!
        And I’m reading it as Max pouncing Grape playfully.

        • NobodyYouKnow

          traitor! to go against your own kind like that! you will NOT read into it, you will NOT read it as max being playful, and you WILL treat females as an inferior race who are only good to put tasties in my food putting plase hjvgft7vb u6gf !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Ada

          Yeah, that’s what I read into it too. Just a cute nuzzle and maybe a little rubbing noses.

          • NobodyYouKnow

            it truly pains me that i must do this, but I must have an answer. tell us what you could not unsee!

          • Ada

            @NobodyYouKnow: Last time you asked that the powers that be erased our posts. I think that’s a hint my friend.

  18. Watcher

    I was trying for a bit to figure out what popped in the last panel…

    Then I realized that “pop” is the sound you hear when someone mistically appears where before there was nothing. It’s just like how scientific progress goes “boink”…

    I’ll have to remember that for when I am on the run from Ninjas.

  19. Pokeblue

    Wow, their game must have a lot of players. Not that I’m complaining, I’d love a game that would be like that, you lose, you just change characters and you press on where you left off.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Paranoia? The computer is your friend, and your replacement is getting anxious, so go ahead and open the door already.

  20. Doomwolf

    I can only hope that this is going to lead to them causing damage to the house.

    • Frank

      That’s not a very good thing to hope for :D
      however, considering the last time they “dumped water all over the kitchen floor”, it seems entirely likely.

  21. 1PlayerD


  22. BillyMT

    “Ensign Expendable” at its best. Classical movie star. XD

    BTW, I can see a heartful pounce disguised inder this red blanket ;3

  23. Stevie Maxwell


    Maxwell’s role seems to be the most fun.

  24. Salenstormwing

    Now will Mr. Bones use his special whip to swing from the ceiling fan? Find out next time in Next Week’s Episode… MR BONES & THE FAN OF FATALITY!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      • Salenstormwing

        Do it. Dooooo eeeeet!

    haha XD

  27. James319

    Glad their getting along :D

  28. ShadyKitsune

    Does this strip count as Max glomping Grape, even though it is a game of pretend and under a blanket?

  29. FuRrY321

    I just noticed “Short Bread’s” broken English. Goooo me!

  30. Enty

    Anybody besides me notice the striking similarity between the wrinkles on the side of the bags and the symbold for Yuan/ Yen? (RMB, ¥)

    • Silver Guardian

      If you have a paper bag that’s been used more than twice, it’ll have a similar pattern in its wrinkles, too. That’s just how paper bags are folded, dude.

  31. Chakat Moonshadow

    Hooray for convenient character replacements! :D

  32. NobodyYouKnow


  33. wingedwolfgirl

    I liked that character,

    Oh well…
    Hooray for convenient stand-ins!!!
    :D :D :D

    • Shadow Wolf X7

      I told you it was the kid :P

      not like it matters now. They say there’s always a 65% chance that a treasure hunter sidekick will die of a lava wave incident…

  34. 3 Doors up

    ha funny

  35. Silver Dragon ordinence

    Nice one. I think that this was sad that short bread died.

  36. HonorèDerazey

    *Lights dim*

    A sonnet by William Shakespear, read in honor of Short Bread:

    That time of year thou mayst in me behold
    When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
    Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
    Bare ruin’d choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.
    In me thou seest the twilight of such day
    As after sunset fadeth in the west,
    Which by and by black night doth take away,
    Death’s second self, that seals up all in rest.
    In me thou see’st the glowing of such fire
    That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,
    As the death-bed whereon it must expire
    Consumed with that which it was nourish’d by.
    This thou perceivest, which makes thy love more strong,
    To love that well which thou must leave ere long.

    That’s for you Short Bread =’(… OK! moving ooon!

    • NobodyYouKnow

      no for some bad poetry
      *lights re-dim*
      easily replaceable and small
      he will not be missed by all

      • NobodyYouKnow

        now for some bad poetry
        *lights re-dim*
        easily replaceable and small
        he will not be missed by all
        (now with 100% more “w”!)

  37. NobodyYouKnow

    watch out! I changed my avatar!
    that is all

    • FuRrY321

      what’s it from , anyway? (Forgive my ignorance!)

      • NobodyYouKnow

        the same comic, jack. the same character, in fact.
        its occurred to me that I’ve never put a link for jack, but i don’t have time. next week!

  38. Ada

    Oh gawd. Grape in that last panel. I’m almost willing to part with my current avi for it. XD

    • NobodyYouKnow

      Do it. Dooooo eeeeet!

    • NobodyYouKnow

      furthermore, What could you not unsee!
      Seriously, I don’t like harassing you. it’s the principle of the matter

  39. VDrake

    We always had a game with lava, yes. Grandma’s couch cushions were somehow lavaproof, and therefore tossed about the room… you just had to escape the dreaded Lava shark.

    We could never remember which couch had which pillows, so it was always mixed up. XD

    “Everybody, into the portal except the tank!

    • FuRrY321

      “But sir, why can’t we bring the tank?”
      Somebody’s got to protect our flank from the evil legions of Basement Cat while we chase after him!”

      No reference, just made that up (‘kay, ref. to LOLCATZ, u caut meh!)

  41. Rooth

    LOL! Great faux names there. :D

  42. Squival


    This strip just reminds me of redshirts in star trek and super mario bros on the snes

    love it

  43. IHazAName

    lol, grape gots a beanie in the last one
    well, a drawn beanie
    but its a beanie all the same.
