Looks like he’s having a good time! ;D
Ice! We need Ice!
What if the burn was with dry ice?!
That’d be COLD
She’s a liability!
Nonono… Liquid CO2!
No pressure now…
The CO2 will just be sublime!
The puns! theyre killing me!!!!!
I thought they were subliminal.
Dun dun DUNNNNN!!!! 0.0
Wondered when they’d get around to that.
Yeah I have been waiting for this for some time now…
My thoughts exactly.
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.
well that would cause an iteresting scene
you mean, looking as foolish as a human-turned-corgi telling all the pets to get naked?
Hello plot hook!
I can not wait to see where it goes from here. Maybe Tarot will reveal him to everyone! :O
But King’s ben around since Christmas, and she hasn’t topd anyone yet so I doubt she’d randomly do it now.
I ha’int the time for an archive crawl right now, so have they met before now?
Not as far as we’ve seen, but who knows what happens behind the scenes.
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.
Weren’t they speculating about Pete and Grape’s dream?
Did they even meet up until now? maybe that’s why she didn’t do it before!
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…
accually i take that back
Hi I’m Daisy!!
Hi I’m Daisy!
Hi I’m Daisy, hi I’m Daisy?
Hi I’m Daisy.
Hi I’m a combo breaker.
*A dog biscuit goes to those who get this reference*
*cough* Rule 95 *cough*
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. )
Hi! I’m Daisy.
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.
That’s one way to sober up
I actually saw that coming…
Good for you.
Now I feel bad like I’m being hated for some reason…
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?
…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*
Sure, I don’t mind
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.
lucky you, this totally got me by surprise. XD
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 …
Hehe, I love how Rick manages to twist some things up that make me go “wooot” or “omfg”
He wasn’t sure in it just had a feeling and the point when someone sees that he was right is WAY better then the surprise itself… but this is only my point of view.
Twist some things up?
What like M. Night Shyamalan or something?
a larger twist would be if daisy was accualy playing dumb… but we all know that wouldn’t happen…. right?
Ummm… are you referring to The Last Airbender?
I thought sometimes that if someone else could discover King’s little secret, that could be probably Tarot.
And that is why Pete didn’t want King at the party.
‘Cuz now he’s going to screw himself over
Probaly, I was thinking the same.
Doesn’t count unless you posted it.
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…
It’s your avatar.
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 )
Yes. Your avatar makes ME depressed anyway.
LOL, tarot knows! :O and lol @ daisy XD
The wonders of ditsy canines.
I bet Tarot was watching King or Joel ever since the ‘Sinister Shadows’ Arc.
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.
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
I just search the internet randomly and saw you!
There needs to be a BSOD count.
King would almost certainly be topping that chart, too
King = …Say what now
Tarot knows this really doesn’t surprise me at all.
OMG she knows hahahaha
Tarot knows ALL!
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.
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.)
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.
If she was any flatter she’d be six feet under while pushing herself up.
(ehehehe, lame pun…)
If Sasha was any flatter, she’d play Pacabel’s Canon in the key of E.
I don’t get the reference… (=_=);
Yippie learning facts is fun!
(Learning the cello sucks though…)
Ok. lol So we now know who Pachelbel is… hehehehe
Good for you!
High fives for everyone!
Heh. I love the Canon in D, I must have nearly 30 versions of it.
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!
You’re so sharp you’ll cut yourself!
@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*
I love the Canon in C#!
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.
Letting Tarot know about them?
Considering this started when she forsaw the whole Pete thing beforehand I really should have seen this coming…
Also King is WASTED
Not any more.
Nothing like discovering someone knows your biggest secret to get the drunkness out of your system lol
Cue crippling paranoia…. Now.
Isn’t that King’s normal state of being?
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.
That is an AWESOME analogy.
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.
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.
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.
Ya Spielberg raped a series with that one.
I think you mean Kubrick.
Figures Tarot would know.
Well, at least King’s having a good time.
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
Wow. He sobered up quick!
Looks like Talk-To-Tarot-About-How-Much-She-Knows-And-What-She-Can-Do-To-Help Time.
I know really.
Im not talking to her anymore.
Says the one with that avatar.
Just making a lil’ joke.
I love Tarot.
My secret is out!
Please don’t tell her…
Wow, he was really that much out. Well that’s one way to snap out of it I guess. Pretty funny.
wait two things!
1) What is on his shoulder?
2) and where can i get a pair of those sunglasses?
1. His collar.
2. I wish I knew.
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.
I wouldn’t date a dog!
Not even Tarot?
Is Hopper a cat?
Okay, Maybe I would..
He brought the sunglasses because he was afraid it would be to bright…. or those were fidos other pair and he stole them.
We all saw this coming from a mile away….
I didn’t. Guess I need new contacts…
Same here. But I like coming across the twists.
well if she can tell hes human i wonder what else she can tell about him…
What can she tell ME
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.
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?”
She wants to be nice and finish her date before she moves on to the next dog.
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!”
The expression on his face in panel three is so “what’s your sign, Baby?” *giggles*
Man Tarot just knows everything :3
well shes peanut’s psychic girlfriend… she probably read king’s mind… or the spirits told her…
These “Spirits” Seem like nice guys.
Why thank you. Yes, we are.
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.
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.
lol daisy, also woah the plot gets intense… I suppose tarot can see “the soul” as well?
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
aaaaaannnnnnd reality sets back in, awesome hehehe
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
lol I know. Is she EVER gonna say something else? Or is this running gag not stopping till HP! lands in its grave?
That was King with “Oh, right, I’m human.”
Next up on Akward Moments, we revist the classic “Wait, Leia is my sister…”
I think that instantly sobered him up. Ha ha.
I’d give Kingy a hug aaanytime~
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.
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.
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.
Maybe it’s both, and she can say, “Hi! I’m Daisy!” in many languages.
Kind of like Lummox in Heinlein’s “The Star Beast”?
Well, the Lummox was just very young.
She didn’t have any problems with her native language. She just couldn’t handle Terran.
She still managed to raise some fine John Thomases.
And to depart with them aboard her royal yacht.
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
Well, Tarot IS the one who predicted that Pete’s release into the world would cause mayhem and general Pete being a jerk. X3
Wow, Tarot’s amazing~
King, shame on you.
Asking to go on walkies with someone.
Oh right! Of COURSE she would know!
SHE KNOWS!! O-O
Are you really surprised?
Haha, it’s not possible to lie you, Tarot!
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*
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.
Maybe he’ll end up with a fox?
dang SHUT DOWN !!!!!
All I know is Wednesday better get here FAST or I’ll explode with too much suspense! X3
I think KING just realized what he was doing. Kind’ve a ‘wait, I’m flirting with DOGS’ moment.
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.
I think it’s probably both. Or else we get the “OMG I’m going native” scene Wednesday.
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.
Wouldn’t know, I didn’t watch the space-smurf movie.
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
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?
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.
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.
He’s still got that whole bone-headed thing going. Even if it does bruise.
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.
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
Poor King,,, Looks like that hit him like a bucket of ice cold water.
I love Daisy. She always makes me laugh.
Hi! I’m Daisy!
Stopping the string before it gets started.
Tarot: you are a maaan.
King: YOU CAN SEE INTO MY MIND?!
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.
Tarot: Don’t worry about the vase.
You trying to bake our noodle?
Too late. My mind is now in infinite logic loop.
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.
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.
You got that trick from Ron Post?
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.
hahaha dont tell fox!!
Daisy! Your parents are dead!
Hi I’m Daisy
Daisy… you have cancer
… Hi I’m Daisy
Hi I’m Daisy
Hi I’m here to take a dog called Daisy to the vet for some unpleasent treatement.
Hi I’m Daisy. :3
Daisy, I’m afraid I’m gonna have to fire you.
Hi I’m Daisy?
Where did I put that fork..?
Hi, I’m Daisy!
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
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)
I vote for A.
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…
d) PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!
If was trying to prevent “turning into a dog for real” he should have represented himself at his trial case.
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…
Yeah I keep tellin this to ppl, but they just won’ listen to me. XP
The being drunk part I mean. XD
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.
Yeh, I was wondering that myself, Is that look “she knows” or “they know”?
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.
Maybe the mind is more important to Tarot than the body? Her motivations are pretty hard to read.
Or she thinks “Oh god, he’s wasted… how can I let him down gently?”
Without quite thinking it through.
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
Don’t worry about the vase.
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.”
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?
Oh that BUSTED one, kay.
Oh that, yeah it’s true, but mine was funnier. X3
Panel one needs a sombrero. Not sure why.
What party doesn’t have drunken people with funny hats?
What a great resource!
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!!
And then there was the sudden sound of Kings brain shattering, and it sounded like a millions windows have been broken at once.
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 hehe
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.”
Feh. Now I like Tarot even LESS.
Such a Sue >.<
I’d say she’s more of a Dues Ex machinima.
My dogma just caught up with your karma?
This needs a rimshot for the ‘dog’ma.
No, my karma ran over your dogma. Sorry.
awww, I was gonna say something like that…
And now you’re caught in an infinite logic loop.
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.
“She’s so cold she’s hot… she burns like ice…”
Dante said the deepest layers of Hell were ice. Hmm…
A plain of ice with the shades of traitors frozen into it.
Niven had a lot of fun with that.
Weren’t there lawyers there, too?
No. They go to their own special level of hell. With child molesters… And people who talk in the theater.
Steady on man, that’s crazy talk.
Can’t forget Wolfe’s Niflheim, either!
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!
What breed is Sasha?
I’m guessing German Shepard.
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.
heck, it’s TRUE.
Ooo, she looks darn CUTER like this!
I guess she’s REALLY happy for being proposed by Kingy
I dunno about that, I still see bubbles.
This could get even more interesting (well, it always does )
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.
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.
She knows who Pete is, but has not foreseen the time to act yet.
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…
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.
Yay for 50 First Dates!
Something else just occurred to me…
Is King going to think “whoa, she knows I’m human” or “whoa, they know I’m human”?
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….
Oh, and… King and Tarot are exactly the same height.
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.
I think if we could see into King’s mind right now, we’d see nothing but a giant mushroom cloud.
Made of orange soda, of course!
WHAT THE FU-BOOOOOOO-OOH-OOH-OOH-AHHHHRGGG-OO-AHGHAGHAGH-OOOM!!
Was illustrating the Orange Soda Nuke.
of course SHE’D know! XD
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?)
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.
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?
Actually, Tarot just peeks through everybody’s windows all the time.
King should have replied: “Nah, I quit that job. Got tired of shaving.”
holy crap just caught up and I was frantically pressing next for the new comic *facepalm* seriously this rocks
Where did he find those sunglasses?
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
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!)
Didn’t get the reference, still don’t. Never played Mario Kart.
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.
Whoops, forgot to end the italics on that one. <.<;
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.
Wasn’t the princess’s name Peach?
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
OK, now I have some context. Thanks.
Yup. There was his celebration right there. Big, loud and messy.
Funny thing is, he’s still drunk/high. Whoops, there goes the party.
no, not high. He hasn’t had any anise yet.
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.
Also, I’m wondering if Tarot could go inside King’s mind to shoo away the influence of orange soda?
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.
he’s her boyfriend?
Wow. I didn’t see that one coming.
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?
lol, thats funny, i misread your comment too…though now i can’t remember what i thought you said…
But yes, carry on.
Sasha is a player!
Wow…That caught me of guard.
Pop! Goes the king!
King read bad his tarot
Tarot just dropped the bombshell.
“Hey babe, would you like to howl at the moon with me later?”
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
Why not both?
good point (no pun intended
hey ppl when did this uptade?!?
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
No offense to those sad people mentioned in my comment, of course!
WHAT IS THAT IN THE BACK OF THE LAST THREE PANELS? OOO: A tail?!?
Yeah. probably the tail of some other dancing dog.
Ooooooooh i thought the dark blue were trees not other people.
yes its a tail/-_-\
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?
Yeah, I thought the same thing, but king doesn’t have a poofy tail like that.
last THREE ooooohhhh i think its a bush or tree
O.o snap! Totally should have expected Tarot to see through him.
And… knowing is 1/2 the battle for King.
…the rest is 25% Red and 25% Blue lasers.
hey kid great avvie
ugggh wish I could set this up to print out so I could read it from a duotang w/e Imma try it
from a where?
duotang you know the paper folder with the prongs that you put through the holes in paper
You mean a ring binder?
and I did it with the two strip part of the comic where king falls down the stairs it looks awesome
oooooohhhhhh ok X)
I wonder if King really did forget? I wouldn’t blame him.
I got my tabs mixed up, so I recently told someone “If you’re trying to date a dog, you’re pretty messed up.” Hilarity ensued.
he prob. did forget i mean u forget a lot of things when drunk ;D
oooohhhhhhhh ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!!!!!!
JK JK DOWN WITH BRITANNIA
So where are all the KingxSasha shippers cheering for that first panel?
King’s got a date with Sasha!
(though I’m afraid he’ll reconsider that after what ms.Killjoy said to him. Bad Tarot, Bad!)
Ah, to hit sobriety in 3.5 seconds
It’s like your mind has hit a brick wall at 100 Miles per Hour.
Was I the only one who actually saw this coming?
heh, How the heck is King so awesome!? I mean, the guy has such… Magnetism!
That’s not magnetism. That’s gravy.
Intermolecular forces! Why must thou make King so freaking awesome!?
woo go daisy
I knew it he was going do something with Sasha AND Daisy … BUT TAROT?
King talks to Tarot About what she said.
Ment that to be an new comment.:P
…Dont worry about it! I had this also A few days ago (I know these series for less than a month so…)
ok this has nothing to do with this but watch this
there we go… something that would HAVE TO DO WITH THE COMIC,like this
(…oh, you might want to cover your ears)
If you dont talk to your pet about orange soda?
King talks to Tarot About what she said.
next strip: King sitting in a corner crying and cursing his fate
Next strip – Pete’s hangover cure for prodigal dogs.
if you dont talk to your pet about orange soda who will?
orange sado’s mai favorite! :3
From drunk to sober in point seven seconds!
you know? now that I know more about Daisy,… I regret I bought nintendogs its up to you to gues why… (litle hint: I bought a BLACK dashund on it with a Daisy on it’s ear)
At last! A cure for drunkenness!
What, the girlfriend of the main character of a comic finding out your deepest, darkest, most well-kept (well, maybe not) secret?
i guese we shuldent be suprised.
hurry up wednesday
Were is peanut.
Hes in the Good old dog club.
actually he got kicked out for the dog/cat pic /-_-\
But Fido let him back in afterward
Were is he?
Hopefully not with tarot at the time. D:
good question. i doubt Peanut would let his awesome psychic gf go to a a party without him…
maybe he’s getting more drinks?
He’s there off panel, too busy not sticking his muzzle into other dogs’ identity and evil entity issues. Got to agree with his logic there.
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)
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.
oh he did? forgot :/
If King’s brain pop in the wood and no one near to hear does it make a sound?
Its the alt text.
Ooooh last night was a fun game of King’s Cup! The best/worst part was me picking up that last king………
Ouch.. He finally finds someone his size, and gets shot down.
Well-placed popping drunken bubble, Rick.
But one sound effect that might also apply: BOIT
Bubble = burst.
nothing like a cold, hard, slap of reality to get sober from soda :p
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.
Well, simply saying “I’m seeing someone else” wouldn’t be NEARLY as entertaining and dramatic. There needs to be punchline/plot SOMEWHERE.
That poses an interesting dilemma. He must be insanely intoxicated to be hitting on dogs. He forgot he was human.
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.
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.
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
And that is what we call a buzz kill!
You had the opportunity for a Kanye-face here :p
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?
King: Hey babe, how would you like to howl at the moon with me later?
Tarot: Sorry, I don’t date humans. *walks away*
Billy Mays: WOW! That works faster and better than OxyClean!
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)
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.
Okay now I get, (I tought this was a talkshow.)
that would be weird…if billy mays apeared as one of the dogs in this…
TAROT IS RACIST!!!! >=O
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 hehe
TAROT IS SPECIST!!!!
Actually, she doesn’t seem to have a problem with Grape and Peanut, so she’s not THAT specist.
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.
Who else saw Tarot knowing he was human coming a mile away?
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
She showed him the “NO tail” XD
talk to the tail
OH SNAP!!! XD
yah i saw that befor cause i got bored on u tube its amazing wut u can find on there
hey ppl i just thought of something kings theme song!!! wut do you think :3
It’s blocked in Canada
It’s King For A Day/Shout by Green Day
I just noticed something… The title, “That Would Be Weird”… Maybe King is dreaming?
Maybe he’s still unconscious from his concussion.
Thats what i’m thinking…
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.
well I was more thinking he was still out cold from falling down the stairs, but that might be the case as well.
If King was dreaming and Rick was going to pull a Dallas on us, he’d have made these strips a lot weirder.
I suspect it’s just the end of the line “I don’t date humans; that would be weird”.
+1 (Since there’s no :thumbsup: smiley)
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?
awwwwww no listen to de song :[
The Pomeranian Knows!!!
*read with an evil wispier*
Aww, Rick corrected the ear. I was hoping it was because she was drunk.
durn ur right ;(
I assumed the punchline would be “I wear my sunglasses at night…”
when he go home pete going to have a “i told you so” grin on his face.
And with one panel, all of the KingXTarot slash fiction has been shot to pieces.
ummmm… that’s not what Slash means (I won’t explain it here due to rules) and two That won’t stop shippers anyway.
KING used FLIRT
it’s not verry effective
TAROT used REALITY
its super effective
omg when will this update
King… BABY… SMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTH.
Wait.. how did Tarot….?????
Ooh, I want to go walkies! x3
And then I said “…” … I guess I didn’t say anything then did I?
POP go’s his night
