    Looks like he’s having a good time! ;D

  2. Kamron

    BURN!

  3. Majin-Wolf

    Dun dun DUNNNNN!!!! 0.0

    • dlazeorus

      Wondered when they’d get around to that.

      • AflacMan13

        Yeah I have been waiting for this for some time now…

        BUSTED!!!

  4. Dusty

    OH ****

    • Mukavich

      My thoughts exactly.

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        I know, Peanut is going to so ticked that dog was flirting with his GF…well actually probably not but who cares as more interesting stuff is happening. Again try and predict where this one’s going and you’ll probably end up looking more foolish than a human-turned-corgi flirting with a brainless black lab.

        • Kytan

          well that would cause an iteresting scene

        • That dude

          you mean, looking as foolish as a human-turned-corgi telling all the pets to get naked?

    • Loki-Impisi
  5. Darcin

    Hello plot hook!

    • Yokashima

      I can not wait to see where it goes from here. :D Maybe Tarot will reveal him to everyone! :O

      • Lupus

        But King’s ben around since Christmas, and she hasn’t topd anyone yet so I doubt she’d randomly do it now.

        • tahrey

          I ha’int the time for an archive crawl right now, so have they met before now?

          • Darcin

            Not as far as we’ve seen, but who knows what happens behind the scenes.

          • Lupus

            No but Peanut saw King and Pete move in, no doubt he told her. I’m guessing she knew he was there all along, since she seems to know a lot about Pete.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Weren’t they speculating about Pete and Grape’s dream?

        • Lutrinae

          Did they even meet up until now? maybe that’s why she didn’t do it before!

    • Kytan

      no she just spoke so loud all the other dogs heard and perhaps she didnt know at the time that king was human… back at christmas i mean…

      • Kytan

        accually i take that back

  6. Yokashima

    Hi I’m Daisy!!

    • brick

      Hi I’m Daisy!

      • Ekevoo

        Hi I’m Daisy, hi I’m Daisy?

        • Dr. Prower

          Hi I’m Daisy.

          • XD

            Hi I’m a combo breaker.

          • Spirit Studios 2010

            C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER
            *A dog biscuit goes to those who get this reference*

          • Menchi327

            *cough* Rule 95 *cough*

          • Yokashima

            C-c-c-c-combo breaker!! (Like that? Can’t remember where I heard the original. A remix was added to Ski Runner I know. :P )

          • Daisy

            Hi! I’m Daisy.

          • Dr. Prower

            Hi Daisy!

          • Pogiforce

            The term “c-c-c-c-combo Breaker!” was from an early Super Nintendo game called Killer Instinct, where the announcer would shout “c-c-c-c-combo Breaker!” if a player managed to disrupt a combo performed by their opponent. Just thought I’d share, since it seems some were curious where it came from.

          • Spirit Studios 2010

            @Pogiforce

            Exactly.

  7. rtlstien

    That’s one way to sober up

  8. Lucent Lupe

    I actually saw that coming…

    • Kamron

      Good for you.

      • Lucent Lupe

        Now I feel bad like I’m being hated for some reason…

        • Kamron

          Nah, no hate from here.

          It’s considered impolite to say “I saw that coming” with some of the other comics that I hang out on, so I guess some of those netiquettal stiffarmeries carried over. I forgot that nobody cares here and that I was the one being rude when I probably shouldn’t have said anything in the first place because I hate being mean and pointing out other peoples’ faults (which did not happen to be present in this situation).

          And I’m tired. I probably shouldn’t have commented on this comic at all. :U

          How about we both just forget about this whole fiasco and call it even?

          • chrisQ

            …is “good for you” considered impolite ???… o.O …I always use the expression as face value, i.e.: /good/ for you ! – in a very positive sense… or is that maybe just the British way of using that phrase ?… *ish confused*

          • Lucent Lupe

            Sure, I don’t mind

        • Spirit Studios 2010

          Well, I tend to use it sarcastically more often then not. Usually when a younger kid just won’t stop bothering me or I am rather annoyed at someone and they tell me something they’ve just done, like, “I just killed 10 men in a row on CoD:MW2 without taking a single bullet!” This, of course, just being an example.

    • Gaboris

      lucky you, this totally got me by surprise. XD

      • gagi

        Lucky him?

        I wouldn’t agree with you, since I like surprises, and this was a nice one. All he got was something he expected and therefore I doubt it was as good :P

        Hehe, I love how Rick manages to twist some things up that make me go “wooot” or “omfg” :P

    • AdriGummi

      I thought sometimes that if someone else could discover King’s little secret, that could be probably Tarot.

      • Dr. Prower

        And that is why Pete didn’t want King at the party.

        • FuRrY321

          ‘Cuz now he’s going to screw himself over :D

        • AdriGummi

          Probaly, I was thinking the same.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Doesn’t count unless you posted it.

      • Lucent Lupe

        I don’t do stuff like that because if I post an opinion and it turns out right people tend to get mad at me for one reason or another…

        • Argent Stonecutter

          It’s your avatar.

          • FuRrY321

            So Lucent’s avvie gets people mad?

            Does mine make people depressed? (That in no way reflects my mood, BTW. I’m just using “Red-Eyed Steve” until I can make a better image. Likely whenever I can get a job and a better computer :P )

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Yes. Your avatar makes ME depressed anyway.

  9. ReCreate

    LOL, tarot knows! :O and lol @ daisy XD

    • PyreCanine

      The wonders of ditsy canines. :D

    • Auzzo

      I bet Tarot was watching King or Joel ever since the ‘Sinister Shadows’ Arc.

      • knux

        Well, she DID know about Pete and his intentions. I guess if you think about it, she’d know about King/Joel this whole time.

    • DarkSniper

      I see I’m not the only one who had that reaction upon reading this XD It seriously made me fall out of my chair laughing. Daisy’s expression never ceases to make me smile :D

    • Hopper200456

      I just search the internet randomly and saw you!
      http://www.instructables.com/community/Text-pictures/

  10. KzT

    There needs to be a BSOD count.

    • tahrey

      King would almost certainly be topping that chart, too

  11. IceKitsune

    King = …Say what now
    Tarot knows this really doesn’t surprise me at all.

  12. Silverpaws

    OMG she knows hahahaha

    • Leinad

      Tarot knows ALL!

      • mlawky

        Tarot is awesome, but I still want King to end up with a dog, since Pete isn’t going to be changing him back. Its obviously not going to be Tarot he ends with with though. :P

  13. Snowmon

    There’s just no depth to Daisy at all is there?
    I guess Rick has just answered my question…
    (and not just that King’s faking being drunk.)

    • Kamron

      Actually, I’d bet she’s absolutely depthful. Incessant repetition of her catchphrase is probably indicative of her traumatic upbringing. I’m sure that, with a minimum of searching, we could find a list of unhealthful coping strategies that includes eternal palilalia.

      • Snowmon

        If she was any flatter she’d be six feet under while pushing herself up.

        (ehehehe, lame pun…)

        • Kamron

          If Sasha was any flatter, she’d play Pacabel’s Canon in the key of E.

          SICK BURN

          • Kamron

            Pachelbel. >:1

          • Snowmon

            I don’t get the reference… (=_=);

          • Kamron
          • Snowmon

            Yippie learning facts is fun!
            (Learning the cello sucks though…)

          • Furr Mate

            Ok. lol So we now know who Pachelbel is… hehehehe

          • Lance

            Good for you!

          • Kamron

            High fives for everyone!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Heh. I love the Canon in D, I must have nearly 30 versions of it.

          • Agent Sandwich

            Corrections…. Flatter means the note would be lower and sharper would mean the note would be higher. Therefore Canon in D would be Canon (in C) if flatter and Canon in E if sharper. As a musician I couldn’t resist pointing it out! :P

          • Argent Stonecutter

            You’re so sharp you’ll cut yourself!

          • Sparro

            @Agent ‘Wich: The joke is that she’s -already- flat, which would imply that she would be playing Pachelbel’s Canon in something lower than D as is – down to C, then B, A, G, and finally F. So if she transposed the song any lower, she’d be playing it in the key of E. You can’t really get any flatter than that without suddenly playing Pachelbel’s Canon in D again, and once you’ve hit an octave down, what’s the point?

            …no, I’m not a music geek… *shiftyeyes*

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I love the Canon in C#!

      • Snowmon

        However “the depth of Daisy” was not what I was questioning.

        “How can King being loose disrupt Pete’s plans?”
        I think that Rick subconsciously (or not) answered that question here.

  14. namelessone

    Considering this started when she forsaw the whole Pete thing beforehand I really should have seen this coming…
    Also King is WASTED

    • Furr Mate

      Not any more.

      • namelessone

        …was wasted

        • Dr. Prower

          Nothing like discovering someone knows your biggest secret to get the drunkness out of your system lol

          • Mukavich

            Cue crippling paranoia…. Now.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Isn’t that King’s normal state of being?

          • Mukavich

            No. Normally he’s just paranoid. He’s gotten a lot better since “All the King’s Men”, I think. Where he was THEN would be crippling paranoia.

            Actually, where he was at a couple few comics ago was just being a whiny git. Ya know, like Luke Skywalker in Episode IV.

          • Darkfire

            That is an AWESOME analogy.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Just so long as he’s not like Anakin Skywalker in Episode I.

            I wanted to hit that little **** with a ceremonial Gungan tire-iron.

          • Mukavich

            Actually, I didn’t mind Anakin so much until episode III. Then he REALLY got bad. The only one in episode I that I wanted to beat with a ceremonial Gungan tire-iron was Jar-Jar. He’s got to be one of the dumbest, if not THE dumbest character in the entire series.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Now I think of it, the only one I didn’t want to beat with a ceremonial tire iron in Episode 1 was… um…

            Nobody. Not even Palpatine. Who at least had some character, even if it was all bad.

          • Darkfire

            Ya Spielberg raped a series with that one.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I think you mean Kubrick.

  15. Repicheep22

    Figures Tarot would know.
    Well, at least King’s having a good time.

    • DarkSniper

      Well he doesn’t seem to be having a good time anymore due to the fact that Tarot knew his secret. That seemed to give him a jolt of reality lol

  16. Darkfire

    Wow. He sobered up quick!

  17. rWolf1991

    HAHA LOSER!!!

  18. TheBrigeedaRocks

    Say whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?

    Looks like Talk-To-Tarot-About-How-Much-She-Knows-And-What-She-Can-Do-To-Help Time.

    • Hopper200456

      I know really.
      Scary..
      Im not talking to her anymore.

      • Shinmera

        Says the one with that avatar.

        • Hopper200456

          Just making a lil’ joke.
          I love Tarot.
          :P

          • Dr. Prower

            dog lover :P

          • Hopper200456

            :P
            My secret is out!
            Oh noooo!!!!
            Please don’t tell her…
            * Meow.*

  19. Pokeblue

    Wow, he was really that much out. Well that’s one way to snap out of it I guess. Pretty funny.

  20. rWolf1991

    wait two things!
    1) What is on his shoulder?
    2) and where can i get a pair of those sunglasses?

    • EHH

      1. His collar.
      2. I wish I knew.

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        I just realized King is “that guy” at a party or bar. He’s going around flirting with the dog equilivant of his pants pulled down…sort of. Good thing Tarot snapped him out of it before he tries to get the clock to “flush.”

        Also great to know Tarot has standards when it comes to boys.

        • Hopper200456

          I wouldn’t date a dog!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Not even Tarot?

          • Dr. Prower

            Is Hopper a cat?

          • Hopper200456

            @ Prower
            Maybe….Yes….
            @ Argent
            Okay, Maybe I would..

    • Kytan

      He brought the sunglasses because he was afraid it would be to bright…. or those were fidos other pair and he stole them.

  21. RockstarRaccoon

    We all saw this coming from a mile away….

    • Snowmon

      I didn’t. Guess I need new contacts…

      • MrMutt

        Same here. But I like coming across the twists.

        • Hopper200456

          Me too.

  22. Kytan

    well if she can tell hes human i wonder what else she can tell about him…

    • Hopper200456

      More important:
      What can she tell ME

  23. Elwood Blutarsky

    And if you didn’t get the hint Sasha loves Bino and not King before they should now. Personally I’m glad to see that Jossed, people got way too into it.

    King picked up some nice shades somewhere, even cooler to see them fall off when Tarot makes it hit the fan in just six words. I like where this is going, it’s going to get wild.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Tuesday instead?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Is it “Sasha loves Bino” or is it “Sasha has too much style to dump her date”?

      (but not enough style she won’t line up another one for next Tuesday…)

      And is King going to be all “OMG I got a date with a DOG?”

      • Dr. Prower

        She wants to be nice and finish her date before she moves on to the next dog.

    • Hopper200456

      Weeelllllll:
      IF Sasha Dumped Bino for King during Binos date.
      King might think (Probable not cuz’ hes drunk.)
      “Well,Hey!I don’t want to get dump during my date!”

  24. Fuzzypaws

    The expression on his face in panel three is so “what’s your sign, Baby?” *giggles*

    Man Tarot just knows everything :3

    • Kytan

      well shes peanut’s psychic girlfriend… she probably read king’s mind… or the spirits told her…

  25. Mr.Zero

    I don’t know what’s more of a surprise. Tarot knowing about King or Daisy being able to say ‘Hi I’m Daisy’ and seemingly only that.

  26. Thoth

    Ah well, determination to have a good time can only carry you so far, even if you can get intoxicated on it.

    Still, the shock may be good for him (and help move the plot along); He apparently hasn’t really considered so much as looking for informed outside advice before, much less possibly looking for help in dealing with his situation.

  27. thewhitedragon

    lol daisy, also woah the plot gets intense… I suppose tarot can see “the soul” as well?

    • Tom

      No she does that whole “For seeing thing, like she knew of Pete before he was released and so on. So it isnt hard to say she foresaw the creation of King

  28. Gamerkitty

    aaaaaannnnnnd reality sets back in, awesome hehehe

  29. Rider098

    That expression in the last panel just says “Did she really say that or is it the soda talking?” XD

    Well that was kinda awkward… though now she is probably going to get some unwanted attention from King. Or was she expecting it and played her part? You can never tell anymore. I can’t help but think that King and Peanut may have a not so friendly conflict because of this!

    Also Daisy’s reaction… something about it says “ew” when you look at it. XP

    • Dr. Prower

      lol I know. Is she EVER gonna say something else? Or is this running gag not stopping till HP! lands in its grave?

  30. Xu-kitty

    That was King with “Oh, right, I’m human.”
    Next up on Akward Moments, we revist the classic “Wait, Leia is my sister…”

  31. Dante

    I think that instantly sobered him up. Ha ha.

  32. Profesor Rod

    I’d give Kingy a hug aaanytime~

  33. Gingly

    I have a feeling that Daisy is secretly fluent in like 10 other languages…just not in English, where she can only say a single phrase. The cast page says that Daisy is “even less intelligent than Sasha,” but as we found out, Sasha can compose music for a piano sonata in a matter of minutes, so I don’t think that’s quite as insulting as it seems. :P

    • tahrey

      There’s a difference between general intelligence and savantism … but in that regard I think I get what you mean. You can be a polyglot without necessarily being all that bright in any other regard.

      I don’t think Sasha is actually that dim, she just plays it in order to get her way with the boys. It wasn’t just the sonata, but she saw right through Bino trying his hardest, having played along that she knew nothing right until the moment they were alone.

      • Spirit Studios 2010

        Having read these comments, the book Of Mice and Men is brought to mind (mostly because I read it yesterday). Lennie is slow in the head: he has a hard time remembering simple things, focuses only on simple things and things that interest him, and is generally like a child. However, he is very adept at other things.

        George says, “He may not be bright, but you tell him to do something and he’ll do it.” (roughly what George says, actually) And this is true. A later character (Either Slim or Carlson) comments on Lennie’s ability to do his job and makes a statement about how his partner was ‘just about killed trying to keep up with him’.

        So, just because someone isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed doesn’t mean they aren’t capable of doing many other things.

    • Thoth

      Maybe it’s both, and she can say, “Hi! I’m Daisy!” in many languages.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Kind of like Lummox in Heinlein’s “The Star Beast”?

      • Thoth

        Well, the Lummox was just very young.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          She didn’t have any problems with her native language. She just couldn’t handle Terran.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          She still managed to raise some fine John Thomases.

          • Thoth

            And to depart with them aboard her royal yacht.

  34. Duez

    Good god his faces there just crack me up. <3 And aw snap with the psychic powers and such. o:

    Looking good so far, disoriented King makes me giggle. :3

  35. mathgrant

    Well, Tarot IS the one who predicted that Pete’s release into the world would cause mayhem and general Pete being a jerk. X3

  36. falcon01

    brain lock!

  37. iHavezMyBirdo

    Wow, Tarot’s amazing~

  38. Corodan

    King, shame on you.

    Asking to go on walkies with someone.

  39. Flexico

    Oh right! Of COURSE she would know!

  40. Lupus

    SHE KNOWS!! O-O

  41. AdriGummi

    Haha, it’s not possible to lie you, Tarot!

    • Dr. Prower

      Tarot: Peanut, what were you doing last night?
      Peanut: Oh, uh, just hanging out with Grape and stuff…
      Tarot: The spirits told me you went out with Sasha last night, liar.

      *insert angry fan who hits me for suggesting Peanut would cheat on Tarot even though it was clearly a joke*

      • Mukavich

        I don’t think that Peanut would go with Sasha. He loves cats. I’m pretty convinced that he’s only going out with Tarot because she looks sorta like a cat. Pomeranians are pretty cat-like dogs.

  42. DJ darkwolf420

    dang SHUT DOWN !!!!!

  43. Jrogenshin

    All I know is Wednesday better get here FAST or I’ll explode with too much suspense! X3

  44. VDrake

    I think KING just realized what he was doing. Kind’ve a ‘wait, I’m flirting with DOGS’ moment.

    • IceKitsune

      I think it was more of a “Oh my god she knows” moment. I could have been that but I think its more likely he was shocked that she knows hes human.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I think it’s probably both. Or else we get the “OMG I’m going native” scene Wednesday.

        • tahrey

          Heh, now you’ve all said that, I’m just waiting for the moment where we find out this whole storyline is one big Avatar parody.

    • AdriGummi

      I think that is for Tarot realizing that he was human. The fact that he was flirting with dogs is maybe because he’s starting to feel comfortable with the fact of to be a dog… King, never return to be human, please! XD

      • Gaboris

        Shush you shipper, when drunk anyone can go up to any girl and flirt without any interests. But it’s a fact that he’s comfortable with the others, but he wouldn’t give up his humanity just yet… would he?

      • Valerio

        totally agree on that, Adri.
        Also, Gaboris, remember that sometimes being drunk leads to being more spontaneos. Even before the stairs accident and all, King really really really REALLY wanted to go the party. And surely it wasn’t to hang up with humans.

        • Gaboris

          Yeah I know ya got the point for that bro, but I doubt he’d wanted to go there to hook up with a dog-girl if ya know what I mean. :)
          BTW I still stand that being drunk makes ya forget things like standards or facts like species. XD

          Given he WAS a PETA member, he’s already going to be quite sympathetic towards animals/pets and less so to the general human populace. His actions were bone headed and misguided even in the face of protest, but the core intentions are good.

        • Thoth

          Since he was socially isolated enough as a human to find Fatties behavior – such as ranting to himself – acceptable, I’d suspect that he’s simply trying to find friends and fit into the group (any group).

          He’s still not very good at it, but the pets are rather more tolerant than most humans are.

    • Gaboris

      YEAH just what I’m sayin all the time, yaaay for the support. X3
      But yeah it may also be cuz of Tarot knows, but the flirtin part is a must. XD

  45. kupo86

    Poor King,,, Looks like that hit him like a bucket of ice cold water.

    I love Daisy. She always makes me laugh.

  46. fox-cub-bold

    Tarot: you are a maaan.
    King: YOU CAN SEE INTO MY MIND?!
    Tarot: no.
    King: ****.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      No, but she can see the future. So probably King will have told her sometime in the future:

      King: So, you know I’m human.
      Tarot: I do now.
      King: Wait, at the party, you said…
      Tarot: Yes, I foresaw you telling me now.
      King: …
      Tarot: Don’t worry about the vase.

      • Nohbody

        You trying to bake our noodle? :P

        • MrMutt

          Too late. My mind is now in infinite logic loop.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Don’t worry about it. The Novikov self-consistency principle states that any solution to a set of equations that are not causally self-consistent have a probability amplitude of zero.

          • MrMutt

            Just in case that law doesn’t work out so well, I left my brain at work to smolder. Don’t want it to burst in my head.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            You got that trick from Ron Post?

          • MrMutt

            Naw, somebody gave me a brain. So I use it once in a while.

            But in this case, I think it safe to say you busted it.

  47. HonorèDerazey

    Daisy! Your parents are dead!
    Hi I’m Daisy

    Daisy… you have cancer
    … Hi I’m Daisy

    Hi Daisy!
    Hi I’m Daisy

    • Gaboris

      Hi I’m here to take a dog called Daisy to the vet for some unpleasent treatement.
      Hi I’m Daisy. :3

      • Dr. Prower

        Daisy, I’m afraid I’m gonna have to fire you.

        Hi I’m Daisy?

        • Auzzo

          Where did I put that fork..?

          Hi, I’m Daisy!

  48. Ghostbear2k

    Oh dear o.O”
    That was like some cool music playing and all of a sudden the record stops with a nasty screetch. Ouch o.O

  49. Gaboris

    You just had to. YA JUS HATTA DO THIS AY MR. AUTHOR?!?!?!? XD
    Eh… this is NOT good for my “King is a human inside so he’s not interested in the girl dogs.” reasoning… XP
    So the basic of this strip is soil to numerus “lol”-s, SO much more KingXSomeone shipping(Tarot would be a fun twist from now on XD) then before and of course the rest of the arc could go on like:
    a) King goes after Tarot and tries to talk so he can get some info on his situation.(Maybe that’s why Pete wouldn’t let him go.)
    b)King sobers up and awkwardly goes back to Fox all tensed up. (Not the right way I’d say, but who knows maybe good for building up tension. :3)

    • Snowmon

      I vote for A.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      c) Soliloquy time…

      King: OMG, I’m going native, I’m turning into a dog for real… I’m too young to be a dog! I’m still very liberal! No, wait, that’s the “I’m getting old” moment…

      • XD

        d) PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        If was trying to prevent “turning into a dog for real” he should have represented himself at his trial case.

    • tahrey

      could be he’s not really attracted, he’s just playing up for amusement value whilst “drunk”. then again it could be a “dang you, foreign hormones!” moment…

      • Gaboris

        Yeah I keep tellin this to ppl, but they just won’ listen to me. XP
        The being drunk part I mean. XD

    • Thoth

      Oh well; I think we can take it that Joel didn’t go to a lot of parties as a human – and so he’s fallen back on television “life of the party” stereotypes to try and fit in.

      Besides, at the moment he may be wondering if all the dogs know; HE doesn’t know that there’s anything special about Tarot.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Yeh, I was wondering that myself, Is that look “she knows” or “they know”?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        On the gripping hand, if Tarot’s referring to him as a human, then that means he probably hasn’t been turned permanently into a dog.

        • Thoth

          Maybe the mind is more important to Tarot than the body? Her motivations are pretty hard to read.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Or she thinks “Oh god, he’s wasted… how can I let him down gently?”

            Without quite thinking it through.

          • Gaboris

            Yeah point there Argent, then comes the “I thought you knew my secret that’s why I told you, but you didn’t know in reality?!?!” part. X3

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Don’t worry about the vase.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Oh, wait, you mean “she doesn’t know, it’s just a catchphrase”?

            I meant “she does know, but she’s a bit spacey and didn’t stop to think think he might freak out if he knew she knew.”

          • Thoth

            Also very plausible. I can certainly see letting yourself be guided by psychic powers being hard on your actual thinking.

            Of course, we’ve also had a reminder that the “Death” card in Tarot stands for “Change” – so what does “The end of…” stand for in Tarotese?

          • Gaboris

            What vase?
            Oh that BUSTED one, kay. :D

            Oh that, yeah it’s true, but mine was funnier. X3

  50. Tobee

    Oh snap!

  51. shadow1w2

    Panel one needs a sombrero. Not sure why.

      What party doesn’t have drunken people with funny hats?

  52. CNA jobs

    What a great resource!

  53. Valerio

    the Good: King is ubercool
    the Better: he managed to get a date with Sasha! YAY!
    The Best: He fully went to the Dog Side
    The Bad: Tarot is a heck of a killjoy!!

    • Dr. Prower

  54. Kitch

    Ouch.

    Duh.

    Uh-oh…

  55. Nia

    And then there was the sudden sound of Kings brain shattering, and it sounded like a millions windows have been broken at once.

  56. gagi

    one disappointment in this strip ….. the Alt text … i mean it’s good and all, but i so expected something more .. i have no idea what .. but something that would make my jaw drop even lower :P hehe

    • Spirit Studios 2010

      I found the ALT text incredibly humorous because, before I read it, that is the exact sound I made after reading the last panel. Then I read the ALT text and I was all like, “OMG I’M PSYCHIC!… no, wait… that’s Tarot. I just got lucky.”

  57. ViewtifulRexx

    Feh. Now I like Tarot even LESS.

    Such a Sue >.<

    • Nia

      I’d say she’s more of a Dues Ex machinima.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      She’s not a Sue, it’s hard to be a Sue when she’s not very good at things. Sure she has powers but unless she’s misusing them for trivial things (ex. finding the TV remote she lost in the first place) she’s not very good at using them (ex. trying to warn Peanut but waiting until the last second and not telling him about her ability to do that ahead of time, even Grape called her on not being good at them in the Imaginate, Too! story). She’s flawed and really funny because of it.

  58. Argent Stonecutter

    “She’s so cold she’s hot… she burns like ice…”

    • Jeff

      Dante said the deepest layers of Hell were ice. Hmm…

      • Argent Stonecutter

        A plain of ice with the shades of traitors frozen into it.

        Niven had a lot of fun with that.

        • Spirit Studios 2010

          Weren’t there lawyers there, too?

          • Mukavich

            No. They go to their own special level of hell. With child molesters… And people who talk in the theater.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Steady on man, that’s crazy talk.

        • Kamron

          Can’t forget Wolfe’s Niflheim, either!

  59. Inu225

    Wow. Just when I thought King falling down the stairs was the only exciting part of this story…
    I get hit with another one! (KaBow!!!)
    Tarot. Your just a plot device for every situation. (And I Love it!)
    Honestly, I feel this is the moment where this story begins to take flight.
    REALLY looking forward to the next comic. 39!

  60. 2MK

    What breed is Sasha?

    • Dr. Prower

      I’m guessing German Shepard.

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        Anyone else notice both her ears are up for the first time? They were both flopped over when she was a pup and usually just the one stands up.

        • Valerio

          heck, it’s TRUE.
          Ooo, she looks darn CUTER like this!
          I guess she’s REALLY happy for being proposed by Kingy :D

  61. othorlimmis

    poohm!
    instant sober!

    • FuRrY321

      I dunno about that, I still see bubbles.
      This could get even more interesting (well, it always does :) )

  62. Salenstormwing

    I get a feeling panel #4 will become someone’s new icon.

    But also, if Tarot can tell what King is, why can’t she tell what Pete is, unless she just hasn’t seen King’s ‘dad’ yet.

    • FuRrY321

      King, while unnatural, is not supernatural. So Tarot can see what King is, easily, while Pete is shrouded in mystery and power.

      In fact, it’s more likely that Pete knows just who/what Tarot is, rather than vice versa.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      She knows who Pete is, but has not foreseen the time to act yet.

  63. Mika

    Meet 10-second Daisy! (Adam Sandler ref.)

    In all seriousness, King just got PWNED by tarot!

    Also, i think Sasha is actually holding onto Bino’s hand in that first frame, which would explain why he gets so upset…

    • FuRrY321

      No, he gets upset when she still agrees to go out with King, even though her ‘boyfriend’ is standing right there.

      Jealous Bino is jealous.

    • Spirit Studios 2010

      @Mika

      Yay for 50 First Dates!

  64. Argent Stonecutter

    Something else just occurred to me…

    Is King going to think “whoa, she knows I’m human” or “whoa, they know I’m human”?

    • FuRrY321

      In his current state, most likely the former. However, if he were functioning “normally”, probably the latter. Any other person it might have been switched around, but King….

  65. Argent Stonecutter

    Oh, and… King and Tarot are exactly the same height.

    • Spirit Studios 2010

      Well, King is a Corgi, and they are short dogs, while Tarot is a Pomeranian, which is classified as a ‘Toy Dog’ in dog shows.

  66. Ki

    I think if we could see into King’s mind right now, we’d see nothing but a giant mushroom cloud.

    • FuRrY321

      Made of orange soda, of course! :)

  67. Kume

    of course SHE’D know! XD

    • Jeff

      Of course she’d know. She’s been monitoring Pete, so she knows Pete turned Joel into a dog.

      It’ll be interesting seeing how King deals with this. (Or maybe this is the real reason Pete didn’t want him to go?)

      • FuRrY321

        I have a really bad feeling King’s going to get all paranoid again, and fear that everyone knows his secret.

        Then he’s going to “rationally” think it through, and decide that, “Wait, if they already know and are accepting me, then what do I have to fear?” Then, he’ll accidentally let slip that he’s a human in some conversation with another pet.

        …Awkward.

        • Thoth

          Is it really paranoia when you know that the closest thing you’ve seen to a god is apparently playing with you, the authorities are after you, and your best friend has expressed the desire to strangle your alternate identity?

      • Kamron

        Actually, Tarot just peeks through everybody’s windows all the time.

  68. Ekevoo

    King should have replied: “Nah, I quit that job. Got tired of shaving.”

    • FuRrY321

      *snerk*

    • Hopper200456

      Lol.

  69. suspense

    holy crap just caught up and I was frantically pressing next for the new comic *facepalm* seriously this rocks

  70. TallenMF

    Where did he find those sunglasses?

  71. AceyWinters

    I’m gonna guess nobody here seems to understand the reference of “HI I’M DAISY!”, or maybe I just haven’t seen anyone acknowledge it? Ionno, either way

    Hint : Mario Kart :O

    • FuRrY321

      Mmm, yeah everybody got that the first (and if not, the second) time she said that.
      >.>

      It’s okay, though, don’t feel bad! \^o^/ (<-Sorry, Aerix, I'm borrowing these!)

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Didn’t get the reference, still don’t. Never played Mario Kart.

      • Dr. Prower

        Princess Daisy.

      • FuRrY321

        That can’t be true! Everybody’s played Mario Kart! :O

        Besides, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Brawl, and the Mario Party series have Daisy in them. You’d have to really hate Nintendo to not play any of those.

        • FuRrY321

          Whoops, forgot to end the italics on that one. <.<;

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I’m not much of a gamer any more. I used to be pretty hot when I was a kid: I even beat the world high score in Food Fight. But, you know, I don’t think I’ve played a Mario game since Donkey Kong was in the arcades.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Wasn’t the princess’s name Peach?

          • FuRrY321

            Daisy is Peach’s sister. I never really liked Peach, but Daisy is far worse (come on, only one line for all the games she’s been in?!).

            O’ course, how I feel about the video game character doesn’t affect how I feel about Daisy in the comic :)

          • Argent Stonecutter

            OK, now I have some context. Thanks.

  72. Ravenite

    *POP*

    Yup. There was his celebration right there. Big, loud and messy.

  73. FuRrY321

    Funny thing is, he’s still drunk/high. Whoops, there goes the party.

    • Dr. Prower

      no, not high. He hasn’t had any anise yet.

  74. FuRrY321

    This makes me wonder if Tarot actually knows what Pete is doing right now, because if she’s getting sort of an “update” from King, she wouldn’t know much of anything, really. :P

    Also, I’m wondering if Tarot could go inside King’s mind to shoo away the influence of orange soda?

    • Mukavich

      I thought that she said that she could only look into Peanut’s mind. In Imaginate, too, when Max asks her if she could pull the information about pridelands from his head, she says specifically that Peanut was the only one who she could do that with. This means that either she’s lying about her ability, she can only connect with dogs in this manner, or that she didn’t pull the information out of King’s head, and instead got it in another way.

      Personally, I’m inclined to believe the third option, because she hasn’t connected with any other dogs, which begs the question: What makes Peanut so special? Perhaps this will be addressed in a later arc.

      • FuRrY321

        Umm….

        he’s her boyfriend? :P

  75. overzen

    Wow. I didn’t see that one coming. :D

    • Mika

      I think she just did…

          He he, at first I thought you said “She saw it coming.” To which I would have responded with “touche.’ ”

          I can continue this fictional conversation, if you’d like? ;)

          • Mika

            lol, thats funny, i misread your comment too…though now i can’t remember what i thought you said…

    Did you read my comment on “Hot and Bothered” or something???

    i’m not sure if thats a fail for king or a point forsasha

  81. sonic id furreh!!!

    hey ppl when did this uptade?!?

    • FuRrY321

      I don’t know when it “uptades”, but the comic usually updates around midnight (so the first commenters are usually sad people who stay up until then, refreshing every 30 seconds for the new update).
      Of course, not everybody who comments early is like that.
      Just the people who hit F5 all the time :P

      • FuRrY321

        No offense to those sad people mentioned in my comment, of course!

  82. Zoe

    WHAT IS THAT IN THE BACK OF THE LAST THREE PANELS? OOO: A tail?!?

    • Mukavich

      Yeah. probably the tail of some other dancing dog.

      • Zoe

        Ooooooooh i thought the dark blue were trees not other people.

        • FuRrY321

          People-shaped trees?

  83. sonic id furreh!!!

    yes its a tail/-_-\

    • Spirit Studios 2010

      Has anybody noticed the dog’s silhouette in panel two between Daisy and King? Anyone else think that it kind of looks like an image of King, from the same panel, shrunken down, silhouette-ified, and then mirrored?

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        yes?

      • Mukavich

        Yeah, I thought the same thing, but king doesn’t have a poofy tail like that.

          • thegamist

            do you guys have to get an explanation for everything? maybe he’s hanging around with his best friend GRAPE … you didn’t see her and Max as well!!! or maybe he’ll be in the next comic!!! oh and yet she turned him down by saying she doesn’t date humans. (possibility enough don’t you think)

          • Thoth

            Why yes, we do. Speculating is fun, can be amusing to others and inspire their own speculations, and is a way to be involved withe something we like.

            And the more insanely off-the-wall, the better! Which is why I speculate that Peanut and Grape – acting on Grape’s suspicions – are currently off on a commando raid on Pete’s empty house with the open door, where they will find the mystical tablet that they will bring to Tarot. If King had been there, they’d have been too embarrased to go snooping around that way, which was why Pete wanted him to stay there.

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          oh he did? forgot :/

  111. e

    If King’s brain pop in the wood and no one near to hear does it make a sound?

    • Hopper200456

      No.
      Its the alt text. :P

  112. Phonti

    Ooooh last night was a fun game of King’s Cup! The best/worst part was me picking up that last king………

  113. Bubzgonzola

    Ouch.. He finally finds someone his size, and gets shot down.
    Poor King.

  114. Enty

    Checkmate :D

  115. FerreTrip

    Well-placed popping drunken bubble, Rick.

    But one sound effect that might also apply: BOIT

  116. CalaverX11

    Bubble = burst.

  117. Dracona

    nothing like a cold, hard, slap of reality to get sober from soda :p

  118. Draven Darklight

    Hmm. You know, there is no reason she couldn’t have said “sorry, but I’m dating another dog right now” That means either Tarot is even more spacey than she’s appeared so far, or she broke King’s brain on purpose for some reason.

    Also I say his personal BSOD is definately the double whammy of, I was just flirting with dogs, even if not seriously, and she just blurted out my darkest secret in casual conversation like it was no more surprising than answering what time it is.

    • Bubzgonzola

      Well, simply saying “I’m seeing someone else” wouldn’t be NEARLY as entertaining and dramatic. There needs to be punchline/plot SOMEWHERE.

    • Kujiiro

      That poses an interesting dilemma. He must be insanely intoxicated to be hitting on dogs. He forgot he was human.

      • Thoth

        Or just trying to do whatever-it-is he thinks that people / dogs to at parties. He didn’t exactly strike me as having much social experience.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I got the impression that Tarot is exactly that spacey.

      And, yeh, he seems to be on a personal voyage of discovery… of his inner canine.

  119. Stevie Maxwell

    If this had been posted on Friday, while a whole bunch of fans of the comic were at Anthrocon with little internet connection, there probably would’ve been much more *pop* from everyone else waiting for Monday’s continuation. Instead, Rick, you just extended the insanity level from the convention’s energy with a much shorter anticipation period. Thanks. ;P

  120. Foxtrack

    And that is what we call a buzz kill!

  121. Kujiiro

    You had the opportunity for a Kanye-face here :p

  122. Spirit Studios 2010

    Billy Mays: Billy Mays here along with Tarot, the psychic Pomeranian! Today we’re selling King a tub of Drunk-A-Way! Tarot, care to demonstrate?

    Tarot: Sure!

    King: Hey babe, how would you like to howl at the moon with me later?

    Tarot: Sorry, I don’t date humans. *walks away*

    King: *pop*

    Billy Mays: WOW! That works faster and better than OxyClean!

    • thegamist

      erm sorry to ask butt … who’s billy mays again (I live in Belgium so don’t be surprised about the stupidness of this question)

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        He was a well-known commercial spokeman known for pitching a variety of products in a long-running series of TV commercials. Mays was known for pitching products using a loud almost screaming voice. He died last year but his legacy lives on.

        • thegamist

          Okay now I get, (I tought this was a talkshow.)

    • Kytan

      that would be weird…if billy mays apeared as one of the dogs in this…

  123. Ekevoo

    TAROT IS RACIST!!!! >=O

    • gagi

      No, racist would be if she didn’t wanna date huskies, or any other dogs, except her own breed.
      But staying loyal to her species sounds perfectly fine to me :P hehe

      • Argent Stonecutter

        TAROT IS SPECIST!!!!

        • Hopper200456

          Aww… D:
          Poor poppie…

          • Hopper200456

            Poppy.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Actually, she doesn’t seem to have a problem with Grape and Peanut, so she’s not THAT specist.

        She’s HUMANIST!

        No, wait…

  124. Zaffa

    TAROT: Subtle as a drunken Superman… Only less drunk.
    ALSO it’s been awhile since I’ve posted here huh? Hi again brohams and bromentines.

  125. Hoheh

    Who else saw Tarot knowing he was human coming a mile away?

  126. Quiran

    tarot knows a lot, wonders how its going to be when tarot and pete meet.

    i dont date humans.
    great, i was waiting for that.
    wonders who heard that too

  127. Chochi

    She showed him the “NO tail” XD

  128. sonic id furreh!!!

    talk to the tail
    OH SNAP!!! XD

  129. sonic id furreh!!!

    • Mika

      It’s blocked in Canada :(

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        durn >:(

      • Profesor Rod

        It’s King For A Day/Shout by Green Day

  131. Mika

    I just noticed something… The title, “That Would Be Weird”… Maybe King is dreaming?

    • Jeff

      Maybe he’s still unconscious from his concussion.

    • Mika

      Thats what i’m thinking…

    • Mukavich

      That would seriously suck. I hate dream sequences. If we’re gonna go on that vein, perhaps this entire thing is just a dream, and Pete actually has no problem with King going to the party. Maybe he’s actually asleep under that tree next to Fox. Come to think of it, that would be weird.

      • Mika

        well I was more thinking he was still out cold from falling down the stairs, but that might be the case as well.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        If King was dreaming and Rick was going to pull a Dallas on us, he’d have made these strips a lot weirder.

    • Thoth

      I suspect it’s just the end of the line “I don’t date humans; that would be weird”.

      • FuRrY321

        +1 (Since there’s no :thumbsup: smiley)

  132. Lofty

    This was a bit unexpected, but not unrealistic. I wonder if Fox is going to find King in some sort of breakdown state?! Will any of the other pets find out this secret?

  133. sonic id furreh!!!

    awwwwww :( no listen to de song :[

  134. Wingedwolfgirl

    The Pomeranian Knows!!!

    *read with an evil wispier*

  135. Kitch

    Aww, Rick corrected the ear. I was hoping it was because she was drunk. :(

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      durn ur right ;(

  136. Traxer

    I assumed the punchline would be “I wear my sunglasses at night…”

  137. e

    when he go home pete going to have a “i told you so” grin on his face.

  138. BlueAnubis

    And with one panel, all of the KingXTarot slash fiction has been shot to pieces.

    • IceKitsune

      ummmm… that’s not what Slash means (I won’t explain it here due to rules) and two That won’t stop shippers anyway.

  139. POKEMANZ

    KING used FLIRT
    it’s not verry effective
    TAROT used REALITY
    its super effective

  140. sonic id furreh!!!

    omg when will this update :(

  141. J.J.

    King… BABY… SMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTH.

    Wait.. how did Tarot….?????

  142. Ian

    Ooh, I want to go walkies! x3

  143. Dayntei

    And then I said “…” … I guess I didn’t say anything then did I?
