    Sasha can play piano?

    • rWolf1991

      Sasha is not an airhead?

      • Evanne

        My thoughts exactly… And here we all thought she was oblivious!

        • Tarkana262

          Signs of the Apocalypse, #372: Sasha displays strange amounts of intelligence.

          • FuRrY321

            Signs of the Apocalypse, #373: Sasha displays disturbing amounts of intelligence.

            See Signs #370-379 for different variations.

          • Auzzo

            Signs of the Apocalypse, #380: Bino finds his ears stapled to his eyeballs.

        • Solario the Visored

          Of course she’s not an airhead! Who do you think she is? Daisy? XD

          Sasha’s not oblivious, she’s just too sweet-hearted to see the bad in some people. But even she recognizes when it’s time to get serious, and a boyfriend “regifting” you is apparently one of those times!

      • Frank

        Bino: Sasha, are you thinking what I’m thinking?
        Sasha: I think so, Bino, but what if the hippo won’t wear a thong?

    • Inu225

      Question mark at the end of this sentence?

    • psychoJoker36

      My question mark was because I was stymeed that Sasha can play piano. I believe Wolf was stymeed that she’s not a total airhead. You just thought it was a trend

      • Inu225

        Yeah I was just being stupid. XD

        • psychoJoker36

          Figured

          • Inu225

            Stupid is as stupid does.

      • AflacMan13

        Nice retooling on your gravatar Psycho. What was his name again?

        • psychoJoker36

          Jack Norris

        • psychoJoker36

          What would be a nice name to go with Jack? And don’t you dare say Dianne

    • Gaboris

      No she can’t, she made it all up, at least that’s what she said.(No joke meant. XD)
      But ya know what this means? Since Sasha knew it all along and didn’ freak out she must like Bino!!! Yaaay for SashaXBino! X3

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        Or she was just waitin’ fur teh right moment to place a snappy remark an gib him teh inpression tha she can’t B fooled tha easily and tha he should not underestimate him, nya! >:3
        Ah like tha in a grrrl, BRAINZ… Ah mean brains and cutness, that’s a win win, minya! ~^w^~

        • Gaboris

          Hehe ya may be right, still she knew and didn’ kick Bino out, that’s somethin. X3

    • HonorèDerazey

      To be honest, it’s not THAT surprising that she made that up in like 10 minutes. All you do is start with a few notes and it comes natural. It’s still really impressive! I don’t know what’s more impressive, Sasha having that gift or the fact that I made a GOOD sounding metal-screamo version of the theme song of the video game, “Doom”.

      • lololol

        No, you didn’t.

        • HonorèDerazey

          My troll detector is going wild. No offense if you’re just a regular user that’s playing around, but your username and your reply seems a little suspicious. >.>

          • psychoJoker36

            And lack of effort to put up an avvi seems a little off, too. I see what you’re sayin Honore

          • rWolf1991

            And I have to agree with Jack!

  2. Majin-Wolf

    Right on Sasha!!^^

  3. Challenger01

    Whoa, wasn’t expecting THAT from Sasha!

  4. rtlstien

    Sasha you clever girl!

  5. IceKitsune

    Ha Ha Ha Ha Way to go Sasha. She’s not as much of an air head as I thought.

    • blackwaltz7

      this XD ohh, emm, gee, this!

  6. EchoFireant

    Musical Talent O_O

  7. ReCreate

    so sasha’s not an airhead after all xD gotta love em’ curveballs. :P

    • Dissension

      Being a little scatterbrained doesn’t mean you’re stupid!

      • Gaboris

        Yeah I think we all forgot aboot that. :)

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        Just like Einstein, minya! ;p

        • WingedWolfGirl

          Drop out of high school… got invent MC squared…

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Yup yup, bad in learnin’ dun not mean yer not good at thinkin’, it only means tha U can’t do stuff that’s either boring or just not functional, mrrrf! ~^w^~

      • Hopper200456

        Cuteness makes up for the scatterbrainz.

  8. OutOfNowhere

    This strip is overflowing with “win”.

    • Hopper200456

      And Awsome.

      • HonorèDerazey

        And scary! O.O

        • Lupin the Vapour

          And pudding.. mmm.. pudding….

          • psychoJoker36

            LUPIN!!!!!!!!!! WHERE”VE YOU BEEN!?!?!?!?!?!?

          • Lupin the Vapour

            If I was up your nose you’d know where I was! But no, I just haven’t put any comments. Been a bit busy.

          • psychoJoker36

            You are right. Had you been up my nose, I would, in fact, know exactly where you were. Like my new avvi?

          • HonorèDerazey

            The silence says Lupin doesn’t like it.

          • psychoJoker36

            I understand

  9. lightwolf21

    …beware the cute ones.

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      Nya? OwO

      • psychoJoker36

        Then everybody:
        Run from Aerix

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          Noez! Dun leeb meh! Ahm not gonna bit ya, nya! Ó.Ò

          Ahm just gonna nibble a bit, BRAINZ! O.O Ah meant to say, nya! “^w^

          • Naylorfan90

            D’aw, don’t worry, I gots no brainz to get nibbled on!


            …wait, that didn’t come out right…

          • Hopper200456

            I won’t run!
            I don’t mind a little nibbles!

          • Valerio

            kitties nibbles ‘r’good

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Omnomnomnom! Minya! ~^w^~

          • FuRrY321

            New flavour cat treat: BRAINZ!!!

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            O.O Ya know, that would only make moar undead kittiehs like me right, nya? O.O

          • psychoJoker36

            Ok, I’ve figured it out. I know the cure for zombosis. It’s a rare disease and the only cure for it is MORE COWBELL!!!!

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Wut? O.o Ah have to wear a cowbell? Mao! They’re huge!, nya! O.O

          • psychoJoker36

            You don’t have to wear one, though wearing one does work. Hearing one for an extended period of time will reverse your zombosis as well. But the best trick is to PLAY a cowbell. It reversed the zombosis you spread to me, so it should work for you, AND rWolf

          • Manix

            or i will steals that cowbell and add it to my drum set >_>

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Noes, my bell! Ò.Ó
            Psycho gave it to meh, fair and square, mao! >:3

          • psychoJoker36

            No stealing cowbells. I have more than one. Arix gets one, rWolf will need one, I will give one to HonoreDerazy, warhero1000, and keep one for me. None for you, Manix. You should have just asked

    • Enty

      troper.

    • WingedWolfGirl

      Oh reealy? >:3

  10. BSQ

    Ha, I could have been first… but I like being in the shadows… also Sashas apparent IQ points… might wanna add an extra 50, also RDR is pretty fun .-.

  11. rWolf1991

    WOW!!! This is so funny!!!
    No this is this!!

  12. ctcmjh

    Go Sasha!

    • psychoJoker36

      Hey, no more “This”-ing

      • psychoJoker36

        Fail button: Pressed.
        That comment was meant for rWolf

      • rWolf1991

        Ok no more.

        • FuRrY321

          It’s getting old now. When ReCreate used it, it was funny, but now, since everybody’s using it, it no longer is.

          • WingedWolfGirl

            This.
            Okay, sry! had to do it. :3
            but seriously, agreed.

          • Hopper200456

            Over 9000 guys.

          • rWolf1991

            How come right when I use it for the first time I get in trouble for it? T_T

          • FuRrY321

            Sorry, but it’s ReCreate’s thing. His meme. Now, Hopper, I swear if you start using that…

          • Hopper200456

            Sorry man. :P
            I should have asked!

          • Frank

            Hey, Furry, no swearing!

          • FuRrY321

            But what if I’m in court?!

          • rWolf1991

            NO!!!

          • FuRrY321

            YOU WANT ME TO LIE IN COURT

            Okay, fine, if you provide the pillow and sleeping bag.

          • rWolf1991

            Huh????

  13. Dissension

    I like that everyone seems to have equated eccentricity with stupidity. = P

    Sasha shows she’s not dumb after all: May 21st, 2010.

  14. EHH

    It’s official. I love Sasha. Before, I was indifferent to her (except when it had to do with her abusive “father” on Christmas). Now, I LOVE her!

    • Gaboris

      I bet ye’re not alone bro. With this strip our team will grow to unknown sizes. X3

      • Hopper200456

        HUGE SIZES!

        • psychoJoker36

          HE SAID UNKNOWN!!!

          • Hopper200456

            HUGE UNKNOWN SIZES!

          • Gaboris

            Okay overdo it as ya feel, this only supports my opinion. X3

      • FuRrY321

        WE HAVE A TEAM?! O.O

        I’ll design the logo!

        …Oh, wait.

        • Gaboris

          What?
          Just go for it! XD

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Eye lasers. Cute eye lasers.

          • FuRrY321

            Cute?!?!

            *destroys all of Manhattan with eyelasers*

            Why Manhattan? I have no idea… o.O

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Hello Kitty brand eye lasers!

          • Frank

            Why manhattan? Because “i 8 NY” is much funnier than “i 8 FLA”

  15. Elwood Blutarsky

    For a comic strip that doesn’t break the fourth wall there is a lot of lampshade hanging going on…I like it.

    Dare I say it, is it possible Sasha is getting smarter as this arc progresses?

    • FuRrY321

      That means she’s stopped getting smarter, as this arc is OVER!!! :D

      • Frank

        Flowers for Algernon reference?

  16. Fuzzypaws

    I like Bino’s look of shock! I wonder what else she picked up on that others thought was going over her head…

    • psychoJoker36

      She knew Peanut liked Grape the entire time. And she knew Tarot’s presence would be needed before Tarot even foresaw that her presense would be needed

      • Hopper200456

        OOOHH!
        Scary..

  17. Pokeblue

    Whoa, she’s musically gifted? That’s real cool right there. Funny, she still looks cute even giving that threat.

    • rWolf1991

      Cute and deadly! That is a really bad combination. Like puppies with laserbeams attached to them!!

      • psychoJoker36

        Like Weeman with a weechainsaw

        • psychoJoker36

          Or kittens with spikes

        • psychoJoker36

          But kittens with spikes makes me ANGRY!!!! *Commences to annihalating both red and blue team)
          Ah, Red vs. Blue references

          • rWolf1991

            Are we really gonna do this again?
            Fine
            MY NAME IS MICHEAL J CABOOSE AND I HATE BABIES!!

          • psychoJoker36

            Look, if a comment is going to be made outside of Housepets that pertains to Housepets, it has to be remade for Housepets. Housepets

          • Manix

            theres no RVB here theres only CVD

          • Frank

            Cyan versus Dorado?

          • rWolf1991

            what is that?

      • FuRrY321

        Feer mah lazor! >8O

  18. knux

    I just know someone is gonna make an avatar out of Bino’s face in the last panel now XD

    • FuRrY321

      *Stares at Bino’s face in the last panel*

      Nope, still keeping mine!

      Though there is great temptation…

    • WingedWolfGirl

      Don’t do it peoplz!

  19. BlueAnubis

    SWEET STAPLED SOLILOQUY! I knew she was brilliant!

    Well, no duel for the girl like I thought. However, that is the best name for a song in the existence of ever.

    • FuRrY321

      Reverse order of things!

      2.I agree.

      1.That’s not a soliloquy. Not even an aside. >.>

      Though it does sound nice together!

      • BlueAnubis

        Oh yah, I don’t think my brain was funcioning at full capasity at the time and I thought that soliloquy was the right word. Hmm, though soliloquy is a fun word to say.

        Soliloquy

  20. Kalvin

    Many girls put on a guise of stupidity to lower the guard of their boyfriends. Also we have found out that Sasha isn’t stupid, just ADHD.

  21. ReCreate

    wait what? thats it? the arc is over? aww crap…thats dissapionting -_-

    • rWolf1991

      Wait what?! How do you know?

      • psychoJoker36

        “Arc over guys! ”
        That’s read right under today’s comic’s title

    • ctcmjh

      It is dissapointing…-_-
      I was hoping for epic cuteness, or maybe something bighugeawesome…

    • Valerio

      it is, but it also means more sweet epic in the future. Yay!

    • Gaboris

      Aw come on you guys, it was short and didn’ have an epic fight or anythin but still how much more do ya need then a SMART Sasha? X3

      • Valerio

        Sasha giving a lecture or two to Bino before going to King for good ;)

        • Gaboris

          Hey! No funnytalk got it bub? XD SahsaXBino is right here in this strip, Bino’s not perfect, but Sasha likes her enough not to freak out on him cuz of the presents. X3

          • FuRrY321

            U JUS’ CALL BINO A GIRL?!

            EYEBEEEEEEMS!!!!

          • Valerio

            you sound a bit heated up, Gabo. Chill. Only time will tell what’ll be, one CAN keep hoping, heh

          • Gaboris

            … ummmm… Hey I’m not english and no matter how good I am I’m allowed to make mistakes. XD
            … yeah I am heated up that’s just natural since I’m almost alone in protectin lil Bino. XD

          • FuRrY321

            Almost being the keyword there…. >.>

          • Gaboris

            Yaaay to hear that. ;)

        • FuRrY321

          *glare*

        • Valerio

          that’s ’cause Bino *is* a jerk to everyone. We like him as the necessary bad character, but so far he didn’t do anything to get any sympathy. But his presence makes things lively from time to time.
          That’s why Sasha’s latest remark gave her many cool points (and a biscuit): now Bino officially knows he can’t fool her.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Maybe the next arc will feature King?

  22. VDrake

    It’s also entirely possible she’s been playing stupid in an ironic sense. Y’know, just for fun.

    Which is potentially terrifying. Now we need Daisy performing brain surgery.

  23. rtlstien

    Bino is probably thinking “I knew I shouldn’t have given her that staple gun…”

    • psychoJoker36

      Read the ALT text. King left his staple gun there from the construction

      • rtlstien

        The one time I don’t read the alternate text it backfires on me…

      • Hopper200456

        Or did he…

        • psychoJoker36

          He did. Panel 4, Sasha’s holding what appears to be a blue staple gun

  24. GameCobra

    And then suddenly, the piano opens up a secret basement in the dog house. >.>

    • Argent Stonecutter

      True. Since that’s Schroeder’s piano, that really might be Snoopy’s doghouse.

      • WingedWolfGirl

        Oh, True!
        She DID said King got it from one of the neighbor dogs…

  25. Inu225

    So…
    Talented + crazy =

    Mozart?

    • Rick Griffin

      Did you ever watch Amadeus?

      • Inu225

        Yes. Brilliant movie.

      • Thoth

        Yep. We’re not giving Bino enough credit though! Evidently either he or Max has actually kept the piano tuned!

        • SamBlob

          …or maybe Bino tuned it before he gave it to Sasha…

      • Valerio

        yup! Great movie, great Sasha!

      • Gaboris

        Now I got interested in seeing that movie. :)

        @Thoth: Hey that’s rightm I forgot aboot that. X3

    • HonorèDerazey

      Mozart wasn’t crazy. He had Aspergers, so we was probably a little odd.

      • Inu225

        I had a feeling that someone was going to catch that. I was actually refering to the fictious Mozart from the movie Amadeus. You are right in that Mozart in reality is technically not crazy.
        You are indeed a worthy opponent my friend. You win this round HonoreDerazey. But I’m glad you pointed it out.

        • HonorèDerazey

          Oh, I guess I didn’t get the reference. Only saw like the 1st quarter of Amadeus.

        • Frank

          You know, you could’ve said all that simply by using “touché”
          … though the “correct” usage is when you refer to something you’ve done yourself.

  26. Lupus

    I knew she knew what she was doing! :3 Now we know that she’s actually kind of a genius under all that flavour-of-the-week-girliness, does this make KingxSasha more plausile? :3

    • Gaboris

      Genious is a bit overdoin it, more like she does understand things just doesn’ care to mess around witht them if it’s not so important… I know since I’m one of them too. XD
      Hey come on, how much more do ya wan’t for SashaXBino then the fact that no matter she knew she didn’ freak out on Bino? :3

    • Cog Cyprian

      Mm, I think not. At least, not yet. If we’re going to be getting KingxSasha, it’s only going to be after BinoxSasha is done with. After all, she does refer to him as her boyfriend in the last panel, so there is that.

      • Gaboris

        HAH! My point exactly. X3

        • Valerio

          There is no escape from KingxSasha.
          Unless it’s JoelxSasha.
          No essssscaaaaape.

          • Gaboris

            AS said before, NO FUNNYTALK BUB! XD
            There’s always a way ya know. X3

  27. tymime

    I actually don’t find this terribly convincing.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      But the talking dogs don’t faze you at all.

      • tymime

        I don’t find this character development terribly convincing, smartguy.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I em sorry du heer dat. I vill heff to vear a bigger hott.

          • tymime

            Apparently.

            So… how am I supposed to interpret a non sequitur in a funny German accent? Unless this is a reference to something I’m not familiar with, I’m afraid I can’t infer any meaning from your response.

            I’m just kinda shrugging right now…

          • Frank

            If a German joke is too complicated for you, it’s probably Nazi Science :)
            http://www.irregularwebcomic.net/1378.html

          • tymime

            I’d say it’s more specifically a German accent joke. But the problem here is that usually such jokes have a coherent sentence, and what makes it funny is not so much what they mean, but what they sound like.
            A good example is Young Frankenstein.
            I fail to see what “I will have to wear a bigger hat” means or what it has to do with anything whatsoever. I don’t suppose he’s trying to do something similar to the “Hungarian Phrasebook” Monty Python sketch?

            See, if a joke needs to be explained in order to be understood, the joke in most cases would’ve not worked. So far I’ve yet to figure the reasoning behind what he said.
            Usually there’s even the slightest amount of rhyme and reason to even the most out-of-the-blue non sequitur, but I haven’t detected it. If he intended to merely confuse me, then he succeeded, but I’m not offended by that because it’s not a very good method.

            Now, clearly you find the joke rather obvious, and think this to be an indication of my inferior intelligence, so you threw another non sequitur at me. I do seem to have discovered a new webcomic through this experience, though…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            No, it just wasn’t a very good joke, and it’s not worth explaining.

          • tymime

            Oh, okay.

          • Frank

            I didn’t get it either, so I looked for another way to say “Too complicated”. I came up with “German Rocket science”. I think you can see the logic step involved in my non-sequiteur now.

  28. ShiroiFox

    May she’s just channeling a special kind of musically gifted Creepy…..

  29. Lax

    So… is this suppose to be the point at which we should start fearing her?

    • BlueAnubis

      Only if you’re a Valentine’s Day forgetting regifter.

      • FuRrY321

        Thought it was “Valentine’s Day-forgetting-regifter”?

        Can’t forget those all-important dashes! (Mostly because they remind me of staples… like the the staple gun Sasha is holding….)

  30. Maark30

    Well someone is not as stupid as she seemed.

  31. Duskyo

    I always thought Sasha was, in a way, autistic. Not too logical, but her right brain fires off like a billion gigabyte RAM drive, with an NVIDIA graphics card, of course =P!

    • ReCreate

      No, ATI. :P

      • Gaboris

        Yeah with an ASUS motherboard and intel core i7.
        I’m such a spamming dork right now. XD

        • Kalvin

          GO ASUS!

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          No it’s an ASD motherboard (Autistic Spectrum Disorder), minya! ;p

        • FuRrY321

          Vhat?? Intel?!

          *goes on a spamming rage in a German accent on how AMD is more affordable and practical than Intel*

          • Gaboris

            Yeah AMD is special and all, but Intel is a much stable point in the industry and ya can always know what ya get. :3

    • Argent Stonecutter

      So long as it’s not one of the ones with the bad solder.

      @ReCreate: Heretic!

      • Gaboris

        ATI RADEON HD is the best! GO Heretics! XD

        • FuRrY321

          ATi Radeon HD 5970 FTW!!!!

          • Gaboris

            That’s a bit overpowered I think, 3870 is enough for me. X3

          • FuRrY321

            What? It’s not like I can afford it or anything. Just goes to show how much more powerful ATi is than Nvidia.

          • Gaboris

            Oh that… Yaaay for ATI! XD

        • Argent Stonecutter

          ATI’s OpenGL support is the pits.

          • Gaboris

            Ya mean it’s bad, yeah that may be… too bad.

    • Frank

      Now, look what you started!

  32. Valerio

    HAH!
    I
    KNEW
    IT!
    Though I didn’t expect it this way, I knew she could be innocent and cute, but an airhead NOT! In ya face! Go Sasha!

  33. Valerio

    Also, I’m a bit disappointed that she didn’t start a serious argument with her jerky boyfriend, but hey, it means even more epic from her in the future. :D

    • Inu225

      It’s true. You rarely see Sasha serious or mad for that matter.
      But with a priceless face like Sasha’s I can’t complain.
      You got to love her.

      • Valerio

        ALWAYS loved her.
        ALWAYS will love her. :D

  34. Justice193

    ohhhhh, he’s in Trooouble… he better be thankful that Sasha is lighthearted… most people I know would do that the first time it happened.

    • FuRrY321

      What? Staple people’s ears to their eyeballs?

      Just what kind of people do you know?! 8O

      • Hopper200456

        Remind me NOT
        to go over were ever you live….

        • Justice193

          oh it’s not that bad, it’s just easy to hurt most Canadians feelings, because we tend to use them a little much :P

      • Justice193

        well no, I mean, our ears won’t stretch that far, but …

        the would hate you much more readily and for what seems like forever, compared to Sasha’s letting Bino off with a warning.

        • FuRrY321

          That’s a warning? Sound more like a threat to me….

          And I’ve seen people who can fold their earlobes all the way into their ears, and stretch their eyebrows over the rims of their glasses *shudders*

          You think you know crazy people?

  35. Lance

    Bubblehead savant?

  36. 2MK

    Too bad we can’t “listen” to a comic strip.

  37. metaceryn

    Um, Sasha honey? You just went from “cute and perky” to “OH GOD NUKE IT FROM ORBIT”.

  38. Islefox

    Sad. Bino not kicked to the curb. There’s always tomorrow. Happy thought.

    • Cog Cyprian

      Rorschach much? Also, I think the whole “Bino always loses” thing had to break sooner or later, and in my opinion he’s suffered enough by now. That said, given this new development, the gag is probably coming right back. XD

      • Argent Stonecutter

        It’s not just “Bino always loses”, it’s “Bino never learns”. I think he’s had one of them epiphany things.

  39. Lynard

    *two thumbs up* that saved my day *lol*

  40. Gaboris

    Thx for this twist bro. I just love it, spec that now I got an extra point to protect poor Bino against the KingXSasha fanboys/girls. X3

    • SamBlob

      Now you have to figure out how to protect him from Fox.

      And King.

      And Max. And Grape. And every single Mr. Bigglesworth. And everyone else who knows him for the egocentric, thoughtless, conniving little creature he is.

      • Valerio

        anyone remembers the ‘helpful volunteers line’ from “Airplane”?

        • Gaboris

          No what was it? :D

          • Valerio

            when a woman among the passengers starts panicking and going all ‘I must get out of here, oh god, I can’t stand it, must get out…’ then the doctor (leslie nielsen) starts shaking her to calm her, telling her to calm herself. Then the hostess tells him he’s needed in the cabin. The doctorslaps the passengers, leaving her to the hostess. Then the hostess repeats the ’shake’n’slap, then she’s called elsewhere and a nun replace her with even more brutality…then the camera runs to catch a line of passengers, each one ready with an assortment of weapons, all while the poor passenger is screaming…

          • Gaboris

            HÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁH!!!! NOW I remember! Thx bro I just had a huge laugh. XD

          • Gaboris

            Not exactly how ya said it, but her it is. XD
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYiv76qRCkA&feature=related

      • Gaboris

        I didn’ say it’s not funny to see him get kicked in the behind sometimes, I don’ like the part with he loosing his girlfriend and tearing him to pieces all the time. XP

  41. ndigit

    Sasha now receives a hundred cool points and a biscuit.

    • Valerio

      and a bowl of sham-pagne

      • Enty

        sham-pain, you mean.

        • Hopper200456

          I guess you didn’t read the Alt text yesterday.

          • Valerio

            bad my memory. Ouch!

          • Enty

            Oh I did, I just saw an opportunity to make a pun :)

  42. Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

    Adda grrrl sasha, adda grrrl, nya! ;p
    A was a bit right aboot teh attention bit at teh ls strip, minya! “^w^
    Better give her a “Ah am so sowwy” gift in return, before she gets all staple-happy, nya! O.O

    • psychoJoker36

      Bino’s luck, it’ll be something else she got him years ago

      • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

        Ah dun think Bino is teh kind of dawg who makes teh same mistake a second tim-never mind we R talkin’ aboot Bino, nya… “-.-

  43. Cid

    Women scare me. 0_0

  44. ShiLin

    And now I can’t help but thinking, if Sasha is not an airhead at all, is her normal attitude a kind of self-protection habit because of her stupid owner?……though it’s sad to think that way……

    • Valerio

      Sasha makes me remeber of that character, Mary Jane Watson from Amazing Spider-Man, back when the gal was all fun&dancing, the shoulder to cry on and a laugh always ready for the others…before we got to know what a lousy ba****d her father was to her, and from that moment she became a more complicated and more interesting figure.
      I see a great future for Sasha if Rick keeps following this logic.

  45. Indagare

    “Simple” is not the same as “stupid”, as Sasha proves here. We really should have seen this coming after the date thing with Fido.

  46. SamBlob

    Bino, if you ever hear her play the intro to “Death On Two Legs”, run. Don’t even stop to consider that you actually have four legs. Just run!

  47. Ada

    Yay! My fav character is not a ditz. I knew she was flighty but I was getting troubled earlier on in the arc when her I.Q. seemed to start plummeting. >.>

    Well, favorite female character. Full Rick glory Spot is my favorite. Because he’s also Peanut! <3 <3 <3

    • Valerio

      let’s say it once again, to the benefit of those who thought Sasha as an airhead

      In. Your. FACE! :)

      • FuRrY321

        My face? It looked like it was your face that was…
        wait, what were we talking about again?

        (If you get that ref. I’ll give you an extra doggie treat! Or cat treat, but I’m almost outta those.)

  48. Max Wolfe

    I did NOT see that coming :X

  49. slacks315

    Go Sasha! She really is smart under all the dawww.

    Kind of surprised there are no avvies of this strip yet.

    • Valerio

      I am soooo tempted, but puppy Sasha = WIN!!!

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        Seeing as how the one ear straightened I wonder if the other will

        • Hopper200456

          I hope not!
          I love her flopped ear.

        • Valerio

          Judging by her age, it won’t. Luckily, I’d say. She looks perfect as she is :D

          • Hopper200456

            Are you saying she looks good for her age?!?!?

          • Valerio

            no I meant that she looks nice, with a cutey floppy ear.
            Of course the best age for all dogs is as PUHPPEZ!

          • Hopper200456

            Right you are.
            I was just messing with ya’!

      • slacks315

        I guess I have had my Sasha x King one long enough. So now here is second panel Sasha.

  50. SamBlob

    “But it was lovely music that came to my aid.” O_O;

  51. Valerio

    Aw, I wanna KNOW if Sasha glomped King for this beautiful doghouse!!

    • FuRrY321

      *glare*

      Jk, I love King too, but Bino is my avvie (ATM) so he demands my love more than King!

      *glares at Wordpress coders for not allowing him to post another glare*

  52. Eric

    Sasha went from airhead to psycho hose beast! Awesome! XD

  53. Squival

    lol! Didnt see that coming

  54. WhiteHuskie

    HOLY CRAP IT’S MOZART’S CONCERTO FOR FLUTE AND HARP BEHIND SASHA.
    Sorry…I was just excited that was able to recognize that…

    • WhiteHuskie

      Of course, that’s in C Major, not D minor.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I’m impressed.

    • BlueAnubis

      I have seen this kind of thing on television and the internet many times, they all follow this guideline.

      How to make your character seem musically talented.

      Step 1: show them playing an instrument.

      Step 2: grab the most complicated looking piece of sheet music and replace the background with it.

      Step 3 (optional): if sound is available, use the most complicated sounding song for the instrument your character is playing.

      note- song on sheet music and the music playing do not have to be the same song, music playing does not have to be limited to only the instrument that your character is playing and can include a full orchestra and choir.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Oh that reminds me, the interesting thing about Schroeder’s Piano is that Schroeder can play in a minor key even though the black keys are only painted on.

    • Frank

      I knew it looked/sounded familiar. Thanks for that.

  55. Naylorfan90

    Woah…awesome, meow! :3

    Sasha is sooo cute!

  56. Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

    Cyoot + BRAINZ = WIN WIN! ;p Minya!
    Especially her cynical attitude towards Bino fur re-gifting her, nya! ~^w^~

  57. FlareKitsune

    To quote the game warden from Jurassic Park;

    “…Clever girl..”

    • BlueAnubis

      Oh good, I wasn’t the only one thinking that.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        This

        • Hopper200456

          is a Bad Joke.
          :P

        • Frank

          Super.this()

          print(“Sorry! I couldn’t help myself!”)
          exit(EXIT_SUCCESS)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Calling exit in a non-terminal method? o_O ;;;

          • Frank

            Now the question is how come the site is still running :)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Oh, that’s easy. This discussion is multithreaded!

            *rimshot*

          • Frank

            Now how did that go? Oh yes.

            “Your rimshot, sir!
            http://www.instantrimshot.com

          • FuRrY321

            Would that happen to be Python?

            Or is it just the fact that many programming languages look familiar?

            (On another note: I just finished my very first program! It’s a simple Mad Libs app written in the above PL, Python, but you have to use a space after each word to get the formed sentence right. Argent, you’re a ferret: can you tell me how to make it add a space after each variable using the print statement?)

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          Wut is? O.o Ahm no German, nya! Ahm not even dawg, so how could Ah, minya! ;p

  58. Valerio

    Oh, and yes, Bino: King is way better than you.

    • Hopper200456

      WWWAAAAAYYYY BETER!
      HERE ME BINO!!!
      WAY BETER!!!

  59. Starcat5

    Anyone else having a flashback to the movie Chicago?

  60. falcon01

    LOL!

  61. MrMutt

    Yay! Sasha isn’t a total ditz.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      And Daisy still probably is.

      • Hopper200456

        :D
        Hi, I’m Daisie!

        • Frank

          Now, how would you pronounce “Daisie” to differentiate it from “Daisy”? Make it rhyme with “eye” and “die”?

      • Valerio

        dream on, folks. After this curveball with Sasha, Daisy’s book is better not be judged by its cover now…

        • MrMutt

          Daisy isn’t in the strips enough to get much of any other judgements yet.

          • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

            Ah say tha Daisy is a kind-hearted grrrl, nya! ÓwÒ
            She gave teh coon a nice big garbage bag @ X-mas, so Ah think she just a nice puppy-BRAI-breaned grrrl, nya! ~^w^~

  62. thrasherbladez

    LOL didn’t see that coming..and I was playing guitar when i saw this.

    I wonder who will win if Sasha and Keys duke it out on a keyboard solo.

    Can’t wait to see the other hidden musical talents in the rest of the pets. I can imagine Peanut on guitar, Max on bass, Tarot on Drums and Grape on Vocals maybe? Or maybe a backup guitarist maybe. The Housepets! Band! Lol…

    • Valerio

      fox at the vocals.
      Rex at the drums.
      Fido + Peanut at the guitars.
      Mr Bigglesworths at the chorus.
      Grape and Sabrina at the backup vocals.
      Fiddler & Keys: violin + keyboards
      Sasha: piano
      Bino: contrabass
      Joel: Harp

      • Zaehlas

        ^—– Full of awesome.

        • Valerio

          oh, and Tarot at the flute of course

          • Hopper200456

            Valerio?!?!
            Why is it when ever you comment a reply
            your Av. doesn’t come up?
            Is there a reason or is it my computer?

          • Valerio

            for unknown reasons, despite cleaning up my cache, when I write from home my avvie disappears :(

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Typo in your email address?

      • GameCobra

        Maxwell sharing vocals with Fox.

        a Cat and Dog Duo. Rick griffin help us all @_@

  63. RadioactiveMusicHound

    GIRL POWAH!

    • Hopper200456

      Ah!Yikes!Wooh!EEE!
      Your spending that power all over the place!
      Yikes!
      Keep it clean for the boys out here!

  64. Hopper200456

    Aww..
    End of the arc…
    I guess we won’t see King after all.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Maybe next arc?

      • Hopper200456

        Heres hoping.

        • Frank

          Though, considering who you are, it’s probably “here’s hopping”

  65. warhero1000

    i think bino learned his lesson not to regift… for his sake hopefully

    • Hopper200456

      Maybe he should regift.
      MWAaAHAHAHAHA!
      >:D

      • warhero1000

        i like that idea. a few staples wouldnt hurt…

        • psychoJoker36

          Not at all.
          Large, industrial sized, staples made for packaging really… heavy… stuff.
          Nope, not painful at all

      • Frank

        You just want to see Bino hospitalized again

  66. Profesor Rod

    o.o

  67. Ace

    And just like that, my respect for Sasha shot through the roof.

  68. Doctor Cyclone

    Okay, but if shes really that smart, why did she get him those presents?

    • Valerio

      being a smart girl doesn’t involve necessarily good taste.

  69. Enty

    I didn’t see that’n coming…. That’s gotta qualify as a CMOA :)

    • Argent Stonecutter

      CMOA?

      • Enty

        Crowning Moment of Awesome

        • Argent Stonecutter

          You are a member of the Troper alliance, and a traitor.

          • Frank

            If you were able to identify it, what does that make you? A mole?

          • Enty

            Turn to the dark side, Stonecutter.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            No, Frank, I’m a ferret. But if you visit my place in the SW of Noonkkot, you will find a mole standing by the bus stop near the giant rabbit.

            Enty: There’s no way a ferret’s gonna abandon the Shiny Side.

          • Frank

            Rrgh. I was anticipating rimshotting your “no, I’m a ferret”, but your answer is just too cool for that.

  70. Shane

    Oh snap!

  71. Kume

    I knew there was a method to her madness

  72. WolvenPaw15

    Ouch…. I felt that burn before “IF YOU REGIFT ME AGAIN I’LL TAKE THIS BASEBALL BAT AND TURN YOUR HEAD INTO A SOFTBALL!” *shiver shiver* I learned my lesson that day!

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      Naw! *pats your head* They only wanna feel wanted, regiftin’ makes them feel just like teh present; secondhand-ed and reused, nya! ÓwÒ
      It’s always hard to give sumtin’ original and/or in their taste, nya! ^w^
      But presentation is always better than teh gift, that’s why Ah always gave mah gift wif a poem, nya! Then it is almost always original or in their taste, nya! ;p
      Unless ya can only write bad poems or she just dun like poems @ all, then yer screwed, and hope for teh Sealing-Cat tha the anger subsides and turns into a “Sowwy Ah made U mad” cuddle session, nya! “^.^

  73. RNCoyote

    Sasha is not that stupid as she seems

    • Hopper200456

      Sasha was never stupid!!!
      Just CWUT!!!

  74. SamiwolfKo

    ‘In minor d’

  75. HonorèDerazey

    Lol, I thought that was a tape recorded replaying song until a saw Bino’s expression and realized it was a staple gun. xD

    • HonorèDerazey

      Many typos. “I thought that was a tape RECORDER replaying A song until I saw Bino’s expression…”

    • SamiwolfKo

      Indeed. I thought it was a tape for him until i re-read it and looked at his expression.

  76. Typhon

    I wish i had that kind of natural talent.

  77. Sockmaster

    OWNED

  78. Ekevoo

    How can anyone NOT know they’re being re-gifted?

    • FuRrY321

      It’s even harder when you’re a dog, as there aren’t that many years between being a pup and all grown up. :P

  79. slacks315

    I just love Sasha’s eyes.

  80. Wingedwolfgirl

    HA!
    Just as funny as when Lana said:
    “Just kidding! I saw you when I walked in”
    :D :D :D
    http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/02/10/snacktime/

  81. Draven Darklight

    I was less than surprised by this actually. I couldn’t remember where I got the idea she wasn’t stupid, but I did. Then I looked back and found this.

    http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/11/14/deep-thoughts/

    IQ is not Sasha’s problem, though that isn’t to say she isn’t mentally a bit…off. Though obviously she can’t spell, but lots of people have that problem. Also you know her dad is not going to care much about her education so anything she knows is entirely self taught.

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      Or a natural talent, or maybe she studies in secret, Ah mean ya dun C her all teh time, maybe she goes to teh library, or onto te Interwebs fur learnin’, nya! ;p
      Or she’s just a big tease and act a bit blond just to annoy Bino fur her own pleasure, nya! ;p
      Mah beshtesh friend does tha 2 when Ah gib her compliments or say stuff tha she does not wanna talk aboot just to throw meh of, nya! X3

  82. Eli

    Bet he regrets giving her that staple gun now.

    • FuRrY321

      But… he didn’t…
      *sigh* read the Alt-Text, please.

  83. Lupin the Vapour

    Oh, nice. I wonder what other hidden talents Sasha has buried beneath her ditzy demeanor.

  84. Cam

    Might have said good on ya Sasha if she wasn’t leading him on until then :o

  85. Manic

    Not trying to be pretentious, but I saw that coming from quite a ways off. I think it’s because I’ve seen it done a few times before.
    Anyways, well executed. You know Bino’s going to have nightmares now, lol.

  86. Manic

    Besides, with Sasha and Bino together…
    At least ONE of them need to have brains!
    ZING!

  87. Max Wolfe

    Not to instigate, but why did this arc end with only 4 panels?

    • Valerio

      cuz in just 4 panels Rick brilliantly ovethrew a lot of wrong assumptions about Sasha, gave her 100 cool points (and a biscuit), and promoted her for future epic!
      *bows to rick griffin*
      Really, folks, if he had to ask for a fee to read this comic, I’ll paypal him faster than you could say ‘Ilovethiscomic!’

      • Frank

        “I love this comic!”
        What? You didn’t pay my fee?
        :P

      • FuRrY321

        But… what if you don’t have PayPal?? Are you saying that I (and a few others) would no longer be able to read the awesomeness that is Housepets!?

        • Frank

          Exactly why I was trying to get him to pay my fee, silly :P

    So, everybody who thought Sasha wouldn’t notice, you forgot the crucial fact that she’s a girl, and girls always know. ^_^

    • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

      They dun have a 6th sense fur nothin’ ya know, nya! X3

      • Frank

        Does that mean “the dead people” tell them?

        • Aerix "the Twilight" Spades

          No, it has sumtin ta do wif little pink horses wif wings and tattoos on their bums, nya! :S
          @ least that’s wa mah sister told meh… O.o

          • FuRrY321

            I’d ask how old your sister is, but then I’d get be talking like I was on helium for the next few days. Assuming your sister could find me, of course! :)

    :O GASP. SASHA, YOU’RE NOT…NOT ACTUALLY..? Omg.

  90. Wolfspawn

    Sasha is freaking awesome :P

  91. Hoheh

    That may be the cutest threat ever.

  92. tiggercat

    She’s smarter then she looks XD

    I just noticed that her ear isn’t colored in the third panel lol

  93. Ki

    Perhaps Sasha is one of those girls that acts stupid for attention? Or even to catch other pets (like poor Bino here, for example) by surprise?

  94. Deluxe489

    That looks more like it’s in C major or c minor than in d minor.

  95. HonorèDerazey

    I switched to a new internet. The Name, Email, and Website boxes reset themselves. Just checking if everything is working.

  96. RockstarRaccoon

    WAT? LAWL.

  97. Howls Like Wolf

    Act enthusiastic, and you’ll BE enthusiastic. She acts like an Irish Setter, if I ever saw one! ALWAYS bouncy and happy.

  98. SomeGuy

    Anyone else thinking of the many many scenes from the Peanuts cartoon where Lucy rests her head against Schroeder’s piano as he plays?

  99. Lanagor

    I kinda imagined the piano…… smaller

    • Frank

      It is small. They’re dogs; they just happen to be the right size for it.

  100. AflacMan13

    Man; it seems gravatars are as popular as beenie babies used to be. I was on this site:
    http://www.soldiersperspective.us/2009/10/28/the-new-military-dating-scam/
    because I am a soldier myself and I think this russian female is trying to scam me; so I posted on the site and come to find out the site manager and myself are the only ones who have a profile picture next to their post. I loooked at it really carefully and realized it was my Gravatar. Check it out. If you go; just grab the scroll bar and slam it all the way to the bottom and then scroll up a little ways and you will find my Keidraan Gravatar.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Wut?

      • Frank

        He’s either referring to the fact that on this site people make a Gravatar out of anything, or his astonishment at the number of sites that use Gravatar, including this one

    • Frank

      So, why don’t you associate that avatar to this account? You can have as many Gravatar accounts as you have e-mail addresses, you know

  101. Frank

    The inside of Sasha’s right ear in panel 3 is white. Is that intentional?

    • Frank

      I mean, as opposed to the cream-like color of most of the rest of her fur

  102. e

    if you look closer in the first panel you the inside of sasha left ear is brown.

    • psychoJoker36

      I think Rick just missed a spot in Panel 1. Cuz in all the rest it’s been white

  103. Authur

    MUST…RESIST…LAME…TF2 JOKE…

    • Frank

      Tee Eff two? What’s that?
      More importantly, what does it have to do with Friday’s strip?

    • FuRrY321

      Make a Quake joke instead!

      …Oh, wait, nvm.

    • Weebz

      SASHA IS SPY!

      There I said it for you >_>

  104. Peanut Butter Sandwich

  105. DarkHeartsAndSuch

    Way to go Sasha

  106. J.J.
