agreeed but i must add
MEGA MIND SNAP
Curve ball O_O
Actually, I think this is the first straight ball we’ve seen in a while. Everyone keeps trying to avoid their problems, when they address them directly, it causes this sort of reaction.
Hmmmm… ya know you’re being quite “Frank” there I must say. :3
(Sorry BAD pun using Gábor. XP I just couldn’t miss it. :3)
I love that Peanut’s brain crashes.
it’s the barn cats all over again XD.
No, that was a diffrent kind of crash XD
Next scene: cold shower.
Hehe I love Peanuts look on his!!:)
Look on his… what?
You accidentally forgot to the sentence!
Yeah, this strip is THAT good. X3
It makes ppl forget their.
I accidentally the whole strip!
I forgot to wash my this morning!
Opps I pused the enter button by accident lol!!! Face/Muzzle:
Reality loves to come crashing down on people.
Usually in the form of the BSOD.
Blue Screen of Death.
When (older) Microsoft machines crashed.
And new ones.
Darn you Vista!!!
It’s rare, but I’ve seen a BSOD on Vista too.
Seen on Windows 7. BAM.
Muahaha! Windows 7 Ultimate and no BSOD! (even though I didn’t pay for it, it’s more legit than the OS Acer gave my friend on his laptop when they sent it back to him! )
BSOD. Ah, that was a big part of my childhood. 8D Back when computers were huge, bulky, and you couldn’t talk on the phone and use the net at the same time.
Yeah good old times. Although I only had the phone and net thing. X3
darn, I wanted first…
Oh well. I didn’t expect Grape to know about Peanuts crush!
Wait, you got around the forbidden word (ordinal of one)? In a sentence that explicitly states the desire to use it in the forbidden way?
M-deration has cr-shed (:D)
Starting all Systemofadown services…
Error! Number missing from Binary core code!
Yeah, was funnier in my head.
BTW, happy birthday Frank (or Frank’s Avatar!)!
Thanks. Yes it is my Birthday. The little mouse in my avatar had no idea, so he’s just staring at the sign on the wall in confusion.
But… how did she know?
How could she not know? Peanut doesn’t exactly have his poker face on all the time.
I mean, look at the two or three different times that Peanut has visibly demonstrated his attraction. Now imagine that rate of occurrence, spread out over ALL THE TIME. ‘Cause they live together.
She’s been around him for years. She recognized it.
Tarot did tell her >.>
In a way that’s true. :3
Music has a name? XD Anyways, this is getting INTERESTING. Can’t wait for the next strip. XD
Syndicated Inc. By Weird Al.
Its nice, look it up! =]
I must admit I didn’t see this one coming at all.
Well Tarot has been dropping major hints. It’s not surprising that she knows.
I saw this coming like a nuke.
So when it got here you died? XP
That depends. What is it a tac-nuke like in MW2, that kills you instantly, no matter what the score? Or was it one of those nukes fired from the Arctic that are really easy to shoot down? (See: G.I. Joe’s nano-rockets. Not the same as a nuke, but likely they are around the same size.)
Did I say it was a nuke?
You sorta did. XD
And here on your right, we have a fine specimen of the Heroic Blue Screen of Death, a fairly common and relatively harmless, but rather humorous, plot device, and if you’ll look to your left…
TVTropes is heroically BSOD-ed: “The database hates you right now. The entry might exist or it might not exist. We would clear this mystery up for you, if we could get to the database. We tried to look it up, but the database puked up an error.”
Well when Tarot first showed up she mentioned to Grape that Peanut has feelings for her, but she also mentioned that Grape would have to break Max’s heart to show how she really feels about Peanut.
Music: best character ever. Besides Made-Of-Win.
Well well, an interesting little twist to keep ‘em interested. Very nice.
Yea and let’s scip teh; Doublekill, Multikill, Ultrakill, Megakill and L-l-l-ludrecriskill and switch right over to HOLY S!#T!!! O.O
I’m wondering if Tarot would say something to Max since they left together……
Max didn’t leave! …as far as we know
? didn’t Tarot drag him with her in the last panal of last strip？
This seems to be one of those situations where both of them kinda knew about it, but never brought it up so directly… at least until now!
Well, at least Grape seems understanding of it, which is nice. Too bad Peanut wasn’t prepared for a line like that. I just know there is another warm hug coming along, IT WILL HAPPEN!
Aww Man! She broke him again. If she keeps doing that to him, he may suffer permanent brain damage. Grape’s expression in panel 4 is great.
Weird Al FTW.
awwww! the poor puppy brain go bye-bye!
For anyone curious about the song Peanut is singing, it’s Weird Al’s “Syndicated Incorporated”
(Haven’t actually heard the song, so I don’t know what tune it’s parodying. I had to google the lyric fragment.)
… and I’d check it on YouTube if my connection to them wasn’t stinking like a 3 week old loaded diaper.
Man. if this doesn’t make him completely crash, i can only thing of ONE thing in the future that could. But colored me impressed. I never expected this from Grape. It seems almost humorous too that in some way, this is Grape’s way of payback i find for all the times Peanut wakes her up =P
It’s a curve ball!
Duck! Catch! Roll over! Oh noes! *gets hit*
*sigh* sometimes, being a super-quick superdog just isn’t all that it’s….
’scuze me? We’re not doing that arc anymore?
I guess my mind just sped over that one!
peanut sleeps in a DOG BED thats ON TOP of a normal bed? o_O
I was thinking the same thing!
USE MOAR LOGIK, RICK!! >=O
That’s not a normal bed. It’s a platform. Both Grape and Peanut sleep in cat and dog beds.
I thought he sleeps in a normal bed.
Looks like a table with a tablecloth to me
Looks like a box or somethin, but who knows what’s under the cloth.
Hmm, I don’t think Grape knew Peanut had a crush on her but more just trying to get it out of him to see if he really did… Of course, he could’ve saved his own butt by saying something like, “No, what made you think I had a crush on you?”, but no. Now Grape knows FOR SURE.
BTW, I don’t like Weird Al anymore. I’m a teenager, my hormones are out of control and I’m more angrier. I like stuff like Slipknot or KoRn now.
Well, Grape is Peanut’s best friend, and they do live in the same house, so it’s not unreasonable to have her know how he feels. Plus, you know, Peanut ain’t a master at concealing his emotions. = P
Its possible,unlikely, but possible. We will have to wait until Wednesday to find out for sure.
I don’t listen to Weird Al any more, either; but I don’t think it’s hormones. It’s because I discovered that all but a rare few of his songs aren’t the silly-goofy-sing-about-food songs. That sort of humor bugs me.
His In 3-D album still has some classics, though. And “Hardware Store” has that impressive burst of vocals at the end.
Ebay and Hardware Store are my favorite ones. On Newgrounds, there is a animation by a guy named ‘Oney’ made for Weird Al’s song, “Hardware Store”.
Ah, Oney! I’d let that dude put his socks on my horn any day.
O.O *slowly scoots off screen*
I sincerely hope you got that reference; otherwise, my comment just sounds really freaking creepy.
Nah, it’s not really freaking creepy, it’s just freaking creepy.
*all but a rare few of his songs ARE
ARE ARE ARE
1:00 AM fail? Critics say yes!
Someone just got broken.
Cue in Tarot
“But, but my job is done! It’s my day off!”
“But if you don’t fix him–”
“Wait, don’t say it. I’ll check into the future and see for myself.”
“But I was so SECRET” “Yeah, I could tell with STRIPE, the totally not a cat girlfriend to Spot. Very clever” “I KNOW! <3" "Facepalm"
“But Sasha couldn’t tell!”
She killed his army,destroyed his headquarter and captured his flag,all with one single movement XD..I want her on my CoD team!
Wouldn’t Spot (superdog) be better, albeit slower?
Wait, you’re saying that he’s a superdog, and yet he has no superspeed!?
Rick, what’re you doing!?
By the way, Rick? Could you draw Grape in a worried pose for, like, every other strip you do ever? She looks absolutely adorable.
DUN DUN DUUUUUNNNNN
So much for staying cool, huh Peanut?
Grape used True Feelings !
It’s super effective !
Peanut has fainted!
Peanut is out of usable brains!
Peanut whited out!
It looks more like Peanut Flinched or is permanently Paralysed. “^w^
Nyaha! U fergotz teh Engrish speek!
aww! will peanut ever get a break? I don’t know why, but I feel bad for him during all this. He’s been so confused, and grape certainly hasn’t made things easy for him……
Well, the cat is most certainly out of the bag now!
Peanut is the best in the first and last pic, poor lil depressed puppy then short circuited doggie… But wait why? *Forgot to read first one sec…* Need to talk, Blah-blah-blah, apologize… yada-yada-ya… no… No… NOOOOOOoooo!!! how could you??? DX He’ll never be the “normal” Peanut again… XP
… … … JOKE! X3
EPIC job man, best twist ever, from now on this is my fave strip.
Can’t wait how this turns out. X3
OK, so the next thing we must expect is ‘the talk’ over which she explains it can’t work and make up with Peanut.
I really hope this doesn’t happen. Ever since QC did it all the webcomics have been doing it….
here’s two of uf, Chris. It would be a shame…
Make that 3
4 with me on the lead… X3 Ok at the back cuz I got late but still.
Just like the end of the world, we don’t know exactly what is going to happen (and when, but that’s not applicable ATM).
Rick may or may not do what you said at f-rst, Valerio, and I’m really hoping he DOESN’T.
BTW, was that “uf” intentional?
o my, where’s the nearest cold tub?
I did NOT see that coming.
The inevitable has happened. She has found you out!
What do you do?!
A) Deny everything she says!
B) Dodge the confession but don’t answer directly.
C) Just sit there quiet and embarassed.
D) Chlorofome her, wear a villain cape and abduct her to some abonded building.
D!! PICK D!!
D would be a bit too much… but somewhat yeah D. XD
You forgot E) NINJA VANISH!
(Hey, it worked for Tarot)
Point there. XD
Was that Ninja Vanish or are we getting a sneak peek at the really bad Active Camo in Halo Reach?
use a smoke bomb and run like the wind , preferably behind the person you’re running from, so as to raise confusion when the smoke clears
Heh, she said it just like that. This should be interesting. I’m guessing Tarot already knew…
Of course Tarot knew. It was one of the reasons she showed up and became Peanut’s girlfriend close to a year ago. Read back to last summer’s strips.
If she knew all along, did she expect him just to forget it sooner or later? If so, she was exceedingly rude to treat him that way…
Well, what’s done is done, for now let’s cross fingers for those two. Hey, who knows, maybe she *does* feel something for him…
PUPILS SHRINK TO A DOT
for starters: I WAS RIGHT XD,
secondly: even though I was right (about the jealousy thing), this is still hilarious , totally didn’t expect the brain crash .
also, because everyone seems to be asking about it:
Yeah good point. :3
PEANUT, KISS HER YOU STUPID!!!
… now stop and think for a moment, which would be stupider? him kissing her, or just staring?… the kiss will land you stuck in a tree somewhere unfamiliar (FALLCOOONN PUUUNNCHH) and an angry sister for a while, the stare might get you teasing in the future, at most.
or maybe her kissing him..?
What’s stupider is the fact you just said “stupider”
you make a valid point, that is countered by your own post
You know, the way Grap just tells it outright to Peanut with an annoyed look on her face and afterwards looks worried when he doesn’t respond is… hilarious.
They *are* children after all. Still learning about love and the insanity that comes with it.
If Tarot’s allowed to say “duh,” Grape’s allowed to say “you have a crush on me” with an annoyed expression
YOU SAID IT, my friend.
HOLY MOTHER OF CHEESE!! did NOT see that coming!
I think Tarot WANTED that to happen!!
Tarot foresaw it all. This moment was bound to happen, and Rick was able enough to make us forget what she said time ago.
Now, let’s see if Grape will ‘fully accept’ Peanut, or… not. *cross ALL fingers*
Tarot foresees everything. She’s Cthulhu’s sister.
Cross your toes, too! AND your tail(s)!
lmao! was not expecting that from Grape at all
Brain.exe has encountered an embarrassing error.
If this problem continues, contact your safety blanket and hide under it.
Darn it Windows Vista sucks!
But Peanut is all like… Oh! Ya that’s right ^^
How long did It take grape to figure that one out?
surely since the farm arc, methinks, she got the idea that his intentions were leaning into serious. Maybe she was scared by the idea and chose to try to hang out with Max, instead.
I always felt it might have started when she saw him snap those pictures of sabrina
Given the level of their familarity and my knowledge of girls, Grape has started to figure that ever since Peanut had it in mind……
Kiss her!! Do it doggy!! KISS!!
I imagined the consequences of that while you were lol’ing.
Meh. If great minds think alike, then what about minds that think quite differently? What are those, huh? WHAT ARE THOSE!?
woah :O she knew?
major blackout man XD
Speaking as somebody whose been the subject of a crush, it’s pretty obvious when somebody has a crush on you.
From the perspective of someone who’s had a lot of crushes, this has become obvious to me. xD
I CAN’T! Someone’s had a crush on me before (for some arbitrary reason or another, that I have YET to figure out), and I didn’t realize it until years later.. when she told me. But then, it’s entirely possible that I’m just that dense. >.> So.. maybe?
Tarot tattled… http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/09/04/i-dare-you-to-do-otherwise/
also the comic straight before that, is evidence the spirits don’t tell her everything outright.
i never thought that he knew that she knew that he knew that she knew about it!
but now that you mention this … it makes sense .. hehe
EEEEEE! I want to scritch Peanut under his chin! Who with me?
Me. All together now…. Dawwwwwww…
Wait. There are two valerios? D=
no, for some glitch in this c-box, when I’m home my gravatar disappears so that it seems there are two accounts.
Teamwork ay? XD
I’m willing to bet it was supposed to be “this is with you”
“Pilot to bombardier; Fire!”
“One doggie brain fried extra crispy and BSOD’ed”
“Great work, Jobs! Now, why don’t you come and join me for some tea?”
“Yes, sir, Mr. Gates!”
Lol guess the dead chicken gave it away
not really and thats mine hands off>_>
See if there will be a new record of comment quantity…
Aww Peanut’s so cute with those headphones on. X3
And girl’s are scary, they just know when you’re crushing on them. o o
not all the time, aside from a child-hood crush I got over fast, I’ve never had another one, but because of my lifestyle choices, I’ve had people think I have crushes… and the opposite, that I just hate women, neither of which are/were true .
People use emotions and body language to say much more than they think they do, from their marital status, to their current mood, what they think about someone to how much they like them, someone who has chosen an abnormal life role, confuses people and causes them to draw false conclusions about said individual, as people are just far to used to watching for certain emotional and visual cues without even realizing it.
The thing that confuses most men about women is the fact that women are generally better at noticing these subtle cues than men are, and as men generally blind themselves to it, preferring to be upfront with words, they ignore the fact that they openly display their emotions and thoughts, whereas women, who are again more aware, are generally better at guarding those emotions, but both still subconsciously pay at least some attention to these cues.
Men paying less attention to them is, in my opinion, the single cause of men thinking women are both mind-readers, and emotional wrecks, whereas the same goes for women who think their man was stupid because he didn’t realize that she wanted him to do something, she didn’t actually verbally tell him, and lacking experience in the area of unsaid messages (well, most of them it goes without saying what men are normally better at picking up on than women), he just won’t pick up on it.
now enough going off topic for one day from me ^.^.
You know that was very well said. I’m sure that’s probably the case with here as well.
Problem is though, when a girl says that to a guy, and he has a crush on said girl, it usually leads to something along the lines of mental black out.
Or white out. Black out can lead to remembering said cause of crash, and the possibility of crashing again. Whiting out will (hopefully) “white out” the memory of said cause, like liquid paper does to pen.
There’s my logic at 10:00 PM on a Tuesday. Just be glad it’s not a Monday or Friday.
Peanut? Peanut?! PEEEAAAANUUUUT!!
knock knock knock/knocking on Peanut’s brain!
I’m afraid… We’ve lost him…
Obligatory Metal Gear Solid Game Over Link:
Thus the lifeforce called Peanut was not even allowed to be born into this world. Fate as no forgiveness for those who dare stand against it…
Hooray Chrono Cross reference XD
Yeah, I spose I shoulda seen this coming too, but since I intentionally blind myself to trying to figure out what’ll happen later on, it was a bit of a surprise. A nice and funny one.
he just went to the land of candy eternal
Don’t worry everyone, I’m certified in CPR! *Slaps Peanut across the face repeatedly* STOP BEING A VEGETABLE!!! >=O
LOL!That was funny.
BUT I LIKE VEGETABLES
*slaps himself for saying he likes healthy foods, when chocolate-chip oatmeal pentagrahams are so much better*
So cute. I love how cavalier she is about it.
It’s a bit wierd to say that I don think this fit’s the mood at all, but it’s hard to define what this means, so here’s what I found on google. XD
Cavalier – casual, frivolous. The “cavaliers” were presented as being “party animals” by the “roundheads” in the English civil war.
10:22 AM with a 108 comments, and most are gone. CREDIT TO TEAM!
I predict glomphug with Peanut.
try hitting the previous comment button >.>
I think that’s why people keep on thinking they mysteriously disappear <.<
I did think the same thing once and rewrote the whole stuff and just as I was aboot to hit submit I saw a lil link with an arrow sayin “previous comments”. XP
Could use some numbered pages like on forums or somethin… or a bigger sign. X3
yes, bigger sign/button would be much appreciated.
I could use a sign that didn’t disappear after the comments section closed, but that’s not going to happen at least for another year
? How come?
They could scroll down instead of paging…
Yeah but that could be too long and no one likes too long comment lists… :s
No, I mean always show “the most recent 50 comments”… scroll what’s displayed instead of arbitrarily chopping it up into pages and giving the people who just arrived a shock.
OOOoooh I get it, so you mean just add a scrollbar to the side?
No, I mean you would still sorta have pages, but the page “scrolls” over the LATEST N comments instead of having a page of the first N comments, then start over with the next N comments, and so on.
Apparently, The Great Rick has heard our prayers! Way to go Rick! I’ll take this any day over paging
To future comment readers: in case you haven’t figured it out by now, for most of this year the comments section would split into two pages at the 100th comments or so. This was part of the upgrade to Comicpress 2.8 ( see http://www.housepetscomic.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=263&p=15588 ) and also caused all those messages near the end with links to a “comment-page-1″ address
Does he actually have any pupils left in that last frame? Or is he jst that surprised we can’t even see them?
They got so small that they turned inside-out.
Dang, you brkoe Peanut!
Dang, you broke peanut*, Sorry for writing mistake, I have slippery fingers, I know…
It was funnier with the broken “broke” anyhow
Typing with paws?
No, I just got as surprised as Peanut, thus messing up . She kind of broke me too with that one.
PEANUT IS BROKE!
SOMEONE CALL THE AMBER LAMPS!
Oh god yes.
This is awesome. And now that Peanut’s crush is out in the open, I can only see things heading up from here.
Don’t expect too much; with the romantic tension gone this comic would lose a lot of potential plots. Plus there’s the issue of Max and Tarot. And we don’t even know of Grape is into dogs. More likely than not, she isn’t.
Of course, that doesn’t mean things can’t get interesting now.
the way you just prospected it, it’d be a VERY boring conclusion to this arc.
Yeah good thinking there, that’s what troubles me too… It would be so nice, but it would end the whole thing. >_<"
Well, how much different can it get? Peanut will still have a crush. Grape will still know he has a crush. The only difference is that Peanut knows that Grape knows.
Or does she??? Look for my new theory, I’m gettin to deep into this story. XD
Pardon my lack of knowledge, but is there something about Weird Al for Peanut to be listening to him right now? (From Brazil, don’t know that much about foreign music)
Nope, there’s nothing special about Weird Al. He’s just goofy, so Peanut is probably just looking for a little levity.
“Weird Al” Yankovic basically makes a living out of taking the melody of a song and puting compleately unrelated lyrics over it. Of course, much of the humor comes from knowing the original song (and seeing what he’s replaced), but often the lyrics are wacky enough in themselves to give you a laugh.
So, go! Find a song, find Wierd Al’s parody, and have a good time! Find out what you’re missing
Wierd Al’s the best with these parody songs so you sould go check, YouTube has almost all of them. X3
My favourites: “I’m Fat”, “Trapped in the Drive-thru” and “Eat It”
Another webcomic with a character suffering from vapor lock.
Don’t do it! She’ll just rip out your heart…
And eat it like the mouse king in the first season.
for how much I criticized Grape, i *can’t* believe she could be this evil..!
And if that song is running in the background through peanut’s headphones it’s hillariously mood killing XD
In teh famous word of Yami (from Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged):
MIND CRUSH IN STEREO! Ò.Ó
Whoa, whoa, whoa, I’ve been reading this since the beginning, but just decided to post because this is getting a bit odd. So, as far as I know, Peanut has a thing for cats, that’s a given, even though it’s considered taboo. Also, Jelly and Peanut were virtually raised together? I can’t say I know their past or history but they, in my eyes, were like brother and sister. You could consider my brain = fried. I thought Peanut liked cats, just not Jelly in that way.
HAH! 2 minutes later and I post something that relates to this XD
umm… it’s Grape, not jelly, I made that mistake too on my first post XD
if you’d care to look back at the whole “down at the farm” arc, I think you’ll see it’s pretty obvious.
Tarot later tattles on Peanut, in case Grape hadn’t already figured it out.
Actually, it makes sense that Grape would know about Peanut’s crush on her. If it wasn’t the signs he gave off before Tarot, Tarot pretty much gave it away when she joined the comic.
As for me, I feel like I’m the only one who likes Peanut and Tarot as a couple. I don’t know, it just feels like if Peanut and Grape got together, it would be like step-siblings going out, you know? It’s perfectly alright, but at the same time, you’re still dating your legal brother/sister.
I also like Tarot and Peanut as a couple, and prefer how this is always reserved for comedy
in addition to what you’ve said if Peanut and grape were to hook up, we’d see much less of Max and probably almost never see Tarot again; Peanut is one of the only concrete things holding her in the story at the moment, besides her relations with Pete, which have yet to be revealed.
I actually like Tarot and Peanut as a couple as well, I’m just not out to say it much since I’m not sure where it will go, so as of right now it’s pretty equal scale with me. Any couple statements from me are usually after I’m really really sure it might go in that direction.
Being “really really sure” of something is a good way to be caught off guard.
Especially when dealing with Rick.
HEY!!! Somethin just got to me… What if Grape doesn’t know anything, it’s just that she’s being sarcastic? Or something like that?
Yeah it doesn’ fit the situation and doesn’t make any sense buuuut… what if?
Yeah-yeah then it could go on like: Just messin around and turns out it was a misunderstandin and nothin changes(bad way).
Or: Peanut confesses and Grape goes “The hell are you talkin about???” and a new plot rises. (Tip: Good way. X3 )
… Okay the title gives it a bit away, but it may be a distraction…
hadn’t thought of that! PLUS, it would BE in Rick’s style.
You’re in for a virtual big cup of coffee if you got this right
Why thank you, I’ll be sure to collect it. X3
It only takes a plane to Italy. Whenever you want.
Cool. That’s not so far away from Hungary, so I could just take a bus. X3
double cool! I’d welcome you with open paws!
Kay we’ll see, bro. X3
As Honorè said some 20 minutes before you, if she didn’t know before, now she’s sure
Hmmm… good point so it’s point two then, I hope. X3
You make real good point. Didn’t cross my mind it might be that way, so you get a congradulatory pat on the back.
Yaaay, this made my day… well night since it’s 1am in Hungary but still. X3
This is the first strip tagged “music”. Surprising.
Eight hours later, my brain is still ringing from the inside because of this strip.
I read it this morning and I think I broke my record of number of visitin and commenting on a webcomic on one day. XD
This guys a freakin genius right? X3
he is, totally!
Ah, it wasn’t even that long ago [in Webcomic time] that Peanut discovered that Grape was a girl.
But there have been two winters in the middle!
That’s 14 in dog years. I think.
Ah Peanut. You so did not expect that. Neither did I.
Of course Peanut listens to Weird Al. Why did that doubt ever occur to me?
Peanut- you know about that?
Grape- uhhh you kinda in a way told me! and you act like you like me as well…what about you and tarot? don’t you like her?
Peanut- i kinda don’t like her! i sorta used her cause you have max!
Peanut- eep! uh tarot you know i didn’t mean that uh right!?
Peanut-( puppy eyes) ! !
Yeah not a bad idea, but who knows whar will come. X)
I always wondered what Peanut would look like with puppy eye. Draw that Rick!!!
Reads panel 1-2: Goood, they made up…
Reads panel 3-4: 0_0
It’s what you wanted and you know it.
(it was a partial joke… )
Wow, over 170 comments in less than 16 hours. O_O Anyways. This arc is finally getting INTERESTING. I REALLY cant wait for the next strip.
Same here, can’t wait. X3
Rick should do it every day…….hour………Minute…..O.o
Just joking!That would be alot of work.He already does it all the time.
I hate saying this ‘cuz I love the comic, But Rick needs a vacation..
I don’ think I got the right to call him on his name, but true. He’s doing a great work and if he can stop the story without a cliffhanger he’d earned a break. X3
I think anyone can call him by his name? O_o What else should we call him?
Wow only 4 replylevels are made, that’s new. XD
I just don’ know, if he ever thinks to comment on one of my comments and says I can then yeah.
I just think without knowing a person or anything(in forums and such) it’s just impolite… and creepie. XP
Use his full name (Rick Griffin). But please do not yous “Mr. Griffin”
sorry, “yous” was supposed to be “use”. No idea how the “y” got in there
Good point, but I’ll stick with my own srtategy… I’m a stubborm mule I know. X3
just for that frank, I’m this close to calling him Mr. G *thinks back to some really old movies*.
he should start giving us double-strip comics in this arc
Let’s not be too hard on him, he must have hard times with the one strip ones too. He’ll know what to do. :3
…I’m sorry, FINALLY getting interesting? I liked it right from the bat!
Yeah. :/ I found this arc oddly boring. Ooh. yay. Lions in tribal wear in mid-evil times. >_>
And no King.
LOL! but I second your motion anyway.
Tarot as Saso made it worthwhile.
beginning of the ARC?
itz been a great comic since its START!
…he thought he kept it hidden? Wonderful, now she’s broken Peanut again.
Grape: sigh….*kisses Peanut’s cheek* bye Peanut
That’s a bit mean to do that, Peanut would never recover.
If she were to kiss him mid BSOD his head woulod go kablooey and the Parental rating would go from kiddie to R for intense gore. (hypothetically of course)
plus, it would cause a universal paradox.
Wow….How is this going to end?
Oohh, we got a few ideas of our owns, so just look around, you’ll find some of them interesting.
Yes,I saw those…….I doubt it will end in a kiss..:(
(Im a Grape and Peanut fan.)
It would be awesome, but still it would mess up the story…
(Same here, since the cattail drawing strip way back at the start. :3 )
Peanut would burst..
Where’s your avatar from? What strip?
“Hey there, Mr. Wolf. I’m here to pick up Peanut?”
Isn’t it super cute?!?!
(gah, put something else to satisfy the antispam thingy XD)
I had a feeling that this was coming, but it’s still no less surprising.
Wow, that actually made me have to do a double take. I almost made my friends think I was crazy from just suddenly laughing.
In any case, I’m slightly concerned now, since I’m thinking Max is still around, and if he’s in earshot (which I’m thinking likely since he is a cat afterall)…. Anyway, hope Peanut recovers and he doesn’t try kissing her or somthing, and if he does, Grape or Max don’t scratch him.
*And…Fire!Arrow heading for the bull’seye!And..And….Perfect hit!
(Peanut’s lips=Arrow. Grape=Target.)
For Peanut=Dream come true….
For Those Grape & Peanut haters…..NIghtmare.
I think right now, inside Peanut’s brain, the “bombing of Parliament” scene of V for Vendetta is going on, with lots of explosions and the 1812 Overture playing. XD
I think it’s more of the squid from watchmen. the carcasses represent his brain!
oh snap his secret is out!
His secret has been secreated
heeeeyyy, you can’t rim-shot yourself, it goes against the whole principle of the thing.
Not even when the pun is that bad?
no, the rim shot it to make something unfunny, funny, or to top off a good joke, but doing it yourself, let alone in the same post, ruins it.
Perhaps Rick is planing to expand on there relationship…
This i want.
Me to.But,I don’t worry about it to much….
I think this: come on,With a Male name Peanut butter Sandwich
and a female named Grape Jelly Sandwich they have to be together no matter what species!
this I want too
…’fraid not. There’s no reason it would happen now, either gauging by realistic reactions or by narrative analysis. In fact it’s even less likely than two days ago. Chances are it will take between one and four more story arcs dealing with these two before they are likely to achieve a resolution we can truly count as definitive. Not to say it couldn’t happen now, but at best it would be an on-off thing at least for a long while (not to say that’s not good – remember Boy Meets World?) and at worst it’d be unsatisfying and anticlimactic, and also really angsty (so exactly like the end of the farm arc).
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHALOZOMGROTL Peanut just froze up, although I probaly would too if I was in his position I gotta crush on grape too
So funny!! Grape broke Peanut!! XD
testing. ignore this comment.
But how can you respond to something that doesn’t exist?
How can I respond to something that responds to something that doesn’t exist?
Do I exist?
Holy… TOTALLY didn’t see this twist coming. Good show.
this is remindin me when they awent to the barn
Heeeey… Where did my comment go?
Hello hello hello
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?
is anybody there.
does anybody care.
does anyone see,
what I see?
Now that’s just cruel…
That’s nothing, look at my new theory, now that’s somethin to mess up poor Peanut. XP
if Fido + Sabrina works (and he is a POLICE DOG for pete’s sake!), Peanut + Grape can work as well, with extra humor!
Not to mention the numerous plots that can be entwined once the two couples start talking…
True-true, but we’ll just have to see how it will go, things are already set in motion so there’s no turnin back, nor changing them. X3
Except if I’m right with my new theory… hope not. XP
You sunk his battleship!
See the little arrow pointing “underwater” at the bottom of the page? It’s called the “previous comments link”
Or did you mean Peanut’s brain?
I bet he meant his brain.
This is Tango, Echo 2 do you read?
(Echo 2) “we copy whats your visual?”
we see the enemy, sending coordinates, fire at will~
and thats what happened as a combat simulation in Peanuts head
Dudes! Is this the 3rd page of comments?
I dare not say anything for it certainly has been said before.
Yeo the third, and just say it if ya don’t want to read the other pages since most ppl forget there ARE other pages, so you won’t mess up much. :3
And to think that the first page only had like,ten comments!
That’s always like that. :3
That is as funny as when my brother accidentally bit my cats tail and the cat ran into a wall.
W-w-w-wait, she KNEW, and instead of embracing it or even sit to talk it out before, she just moved on, pretending nothing happened?!
Now THAT is being evil!
She’s a cat.
Your point being…? Oh, that thing about being Lawfully Chaotic again? XD
I *so* agree!
not really, the easiest way to avoid a problem you think is over with is to ignore it for a bit and then bring it up later in a situation that says “I know but it doesn’t matter now because your over it”… didn’t work this time, not fully anyways.
I haven’t heard anyone mention the possibility of a Max + Tarot couple as they console each other on the loss of their other loves.
So far all the mixed couples were male dog and female cat, why not the opposite? Max seems to have had a rougher life than the other house cats, but no one he’s close enough to too love and Tarot is attuned to peoples wants and needs and she certainly seems to have a lot of love to give and she’s tried from the start to get Peanut and Grape together, so on some level she seems to have accepted that she’ll never have Peanut for herself.
Because they have shown no affection towards each other at all, hardly know each other, are both in relationships, and interest in other species is the exception, not the rule.
We don’t even know if Grape likes Peanut back, and whatever happens chances are we won’t see them together (since that would close too many potential plots). Hence, Max and Tarot are likely to keep their significant others, at least for now. If you look at things like a writer rather than like a shipper, then it’s pretty obvious why no one has suggested the idea of Max and Tarot getting together.
Who knows though? If Tarot’s not as busy with Peanut anymore, it could end up twisting to an even more hilarious plot, where Tarot goes raging because of it. and the most twisted storyline that has ever been made is released from the madness of Tarot. If that wouldn’t be funny, I don’t know what is(Except for Housepets as it is )
I’ve actually thought about that, but I didn’t think it will work out, at least with what we understand at the moment. I mean it makes sense to pair Peanut and Grape since they have known each other for a long time, if anything they would already know most of the basic facts it takes to be a relationship.
What interest would the like? Like, between the current pairings so far (Grape and Max, and Peanut and Tarot) they have at least one thing in common. I mean both Grape and Max like Pridelands, and Tarot can do these weird, but cool, things, and Peanut seems very much into that.
Am I the only one or is this the longest commentlist on this comic so far? XD
This guy is onto somethin to move so many ppl at once. X3
Can’t be sure. I know we’ve gone onto three pages before (don’t remember when, though, but I’m willing to bet it was during the “It’s a Wonderful Dog’s Life” arc). If we go onto four pages, I think there won’t be a doubt.
there is no way t know now, but I suppose we can count the number of comments >.>.
I hope so. I’d like to be the one to say that I got the first comment on the longest Housepets! comment thread.
Another one, my comments got deleted. But why? :’(
are you using an illegal word? such as 1st?
Don’ know aboot that, but I’ll look out.
It’s been two days and this strip still refuses to get out of my head.
It happens to me as well..
IT’S OVER NINETHOUSAAAAA… *Cough-cough* I mean over 300 comments. X3
This is official I’d say, most epic strip ever. X3
I’m commenting too much am I? XP
X3 That’s so cute~ ^-^
Lol. Brain busted once again. xD Poor pup. Aww, Peanut is a jealous brother.
Brother!?!?More like Housemate!
I e-mailed Rick about this and he said that they where like Housemates.
You even mailed him? Hehe that’s nice. X3
Well yeah we could say if the author says then it’s not awkward at all.
Your on,like,All the time Gaboris.
I am too. :3
Yeah this strip made me addicted for commenting. Since I woke up as long as I’m in the dorm the site’s open and I’m huntin for replys and comments. X3
Good to know I’m not alone.
thus there is hope.
We’ll just have to wait right? X3
Technically, they’re um… Foster kids or something XD
‘Cause really, the day a human gives birth to a anthro cat and / or dog, the furry community will echo through the planet in a single cry of joy XD
I think Rick, like so many other authors, is just a fan of non-committing answers, you know, ones that tell the person what they want to hear without really telling them anything at all…
If you really read them, some of them are quite hilarious, yet the person that its tailored to almost always walks away satisfied XD/
I just really can’t picture the idea of them being an item, rather close siblings. Already said my opinion way back about this topic. If they suddenly do end up together, I’ll be a little bit disappointed while others might cheer. But this doesn’t mean I’ll stop loving and reading housepets. Just need to get over the fact and move on IF it does happen.
O.o new comment page.
Sorry,You are alone.
I got to get off.
Hehe, no prob bro (bro? not bro? no idea Xp)
I’ll only stay as long as I don go to sleep so it’s kay. XD
Yeah I just wanted to say that… does that mean our ideas were read and thought to bee good? Wow if so then I’m impressed. :3
That would be Awesome.
You weren’t necessarily wrong. We may have gone onto four pages, but it just changed. See this thread:
Sorry it may be my bad but I don get it, all I see is that the page system is gone and the link you sent is this page soooo…
he’s showing you a specific comment out of the whole list.
A little lesson on HTML and The Internet: when an address has a ‘#’ sign in it, it means it’s pointing to a “bookmark”, a certain point on the page. It’s the way we have to scroll you directly to what we want you to see, by putting it as close to the top of your browser window as possible.
Thx big help, but it just doesn’t scroll to the comment that’s my prob and I’m in an informatics collage so no lessons needed… infos are useful though. XD
A hydrogen bomb just went off in Peanut’s brain.
Physical recovery time: 6 minutes
Mental recovery time: 6 years
Wait….*Stares at Peanut.*
Doctor,Make that 7 years…
I’ll be the badass and say make that dog years so 49. XD
Grape said it to bluntly! she just came out and said it!
Yaaay someone who has the same point as me. X3
one of my fav weird al songs
oh and WOAH, DIDNT SEE THAT ONE COMING
Was Grape aware of the crush before or after Pridelands pretending? Hm…
Grape: You have a crush on me don’t you.
Peanut: Aba ugah burble uh buh duh fuh
Grape: That sounded like a no so let’s go somewhere else and never bring it up again
Also panel 4 is lookin’ awesome.
Yeah nice quote. XD
Seems like the most comments for one of these comics.
Yeah This is the champion so far. :3
Please oh Please….don’t let it just be another tease…Come on… Like noone is going to see what happens next. The whole “well let’s just be friends” speech.
I just know that is going to happen…It happens to every time… It’s like every writer just goes the whole, “Air out your laundry & nothing comes out of it” route.
Uh… is there a reason you posted this four minutes before Wednesday’s comic goes up? Nice rhyme BTW
Good timing I’d say. :3
GRAAAAAAPE! You broke Peanut, didn’t you? Well, you’re going to have to pay to get us another one.
…Lol. Did you delete my comment?
Only two more comments to go, so sorry if I spam a bit, but you deserve the 400.
