I will venture in and say this will be quite an adventurous arc
Get it straight: this will be a FUNVENTUROUS arc.
We, the readers, will have a FUNVENTUROUS time during our FUNVENTURE of reading each and every FUNVENTUROUSLY amazing strip.
Ahhhhh! It’s missing the “™” sign!
Don’t worry, the Fair Use Act of 1976 says that’s OK as long as we don’t sell it for money.
That ear looks chewier than usual
Max, in general looks a tab goofy o.=.O;
And Miles… chaperoning? This will be fun.
Maybe Rick was tired of everyone complaining about how the bite marks supposedly weren’t there when Max was looking in certain directions.
All the targets, and you hit the label.
I want to ask “How?!” I really do.
Accuracy: It matters
And disractions: they add to it…
Indeed they do!
unless ur blind firin XD
woops rong email ^-^
“Golf is full of distractions.”
(Yes, I know that we’re talking about darts here, but it’s a quote from the Sunday morning comics.)
Hey, it could have been worse. I wish we could see the list…
Adding to that:
No, that would be a ferret-themed bar-and-restaurant.
He may have been drunk at the time (on pop of course, this is a PG-strip). Being that it’s darts that actually kind of fits.
“Hello, little orange soda. You’ll be my friend, won’t you?” *Hic*
Ferrets throwing darts….its amazing he even HIT the dartboard lol!
I’m sure it was a big dartboard. With that much money, they would buy a giant dartboard. How could they not buy a wall-sized dartboard?
who says they were throwing them, for an animal that size they could have had the board on the floor and jumped from a high space with the dart in their paw
Maybe the used whatever they were launching the squirrels from!
Rule of Funny.
well, that explains why it’s called theme park world
“And this is our roller-coaster-themed carousel, and over there’s our bumper-cars-themed scrambler…”
wut bout de canon D:
It can go take a ride on the drop-tower-themed waterslide and DIE.
They hit the label? Well, it’s vague enough to work I suppose. XD
lol this should be fun everyone is going to be there and maybe we will meet new characters
Good to know someone is worse at darts than me.
Is that a trademark symbol on Funventure?
It looks like it. So, the ferrets own the word furventure?
yep n every taime u use it u get taxed so that’ll be 10 cents
I guess so.
I just think it’s hilarious that Keene needs to add “TM” whenever he has to say “Funventure”.
Reminds me of the supplementary “Semantics Officer” for Paranoia.
“Im sorry, but you have to say ‘Bouncy Bubble Beverage tee-em beverages’ not ‘cans of BBB’. That will be a fifty credit fine.”
“B-B-B-BUT I JUST WANTED A B3!”
“Tsk tsk, that’s a thirty credit fine for saying ‘B3′ instead of ‘Bouncy Bubble Beverage tee-em’. Again. That brings the total fine up to… hmm let’s see… carry the five… three thousand four hundred and fifty two credits.”
Is that a movie or game?
It’s like D&D, except that part of the experience is being a douchebag. I’m bad at explaining things, but basically, the whole place (Alpha Complex) is run by The Computer. The Computer is your friend. Friend Computer knows what is best for you. Commie Mutant Traitors are bad. Troubleshooters have two jobs: 1) find trouble 2) shoot it.
You are actually a commie mutant traitor (or at least one of the above), and must complete your mission and prove the guilt of your fellow party members before they can prove you guilty and terminate you.
Fortunately for you, you start with a six-pack of clones and some overalls. Probably.
It’s fun, because The Computer says it is! The Computer wouldn’t lie to you! The Computer is your Friend! Fun is mandatory, if you are not having fun, please report to the nearest termination facility.
Basically, it’s a good game to let loose and be a douchebag to your friends, but only if they KNOW that that’s what the game is for, and only of YOU can take it.
IT’S FUN! OR ELSE!
They didn’t think to just throw the dart again?
And just what is wrong with running with an idea?
Nothing. The ferrets that they are so eccentric that they almost always just run with it don’t they?
They were inspired, man!
I believe they feared where the next one might hit
First panel FTW
Max looks very cross-eyed ( .)___(. )
He does LOL
Now that you mention it, so does Grape….
AI WANNA SNUGGLE W/ GWAPE
Well, the wolves have evidently been good neighbors, since the Sandwiches (at least) trust them above the ferrets.
Judging by their observed bahavior, that’s sensible enough – but it is an interesting counterpoint to the level of anti-feral prejudice on display when Miles visited the city. Evidently most of the humans of Babylon Gardens have shed a lot of their early conditioning.
Well, it’s not exactly hard to be more trustworthy (or at least dependable) than the ferrets are…
“anti-feral prejudice”? You wouldn’t happen to be referring to the June 9th strip, would you? Consider, though, that Miles must’ve really worked hard on this social relationship before he was allowed in for a cup of (?) coffee.
And possibly changing the subject: remember on May 19 I said I had a present for you? Well, I finally went and posted it! It’s here:
(though you might’ve known that already)
That… explains a lot…
Woops, that makes it sound like I think it’s cannon, but what I’m trying to say is, nice job Frank. Well done, bravo.
Thank you, and don’t worry; someone is sure to bring a cannon soon to enforce canon
Oh, I meant this one: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/10/05/sweet-christmas-its-a-wolf-get-in-the-car/
It seemes like humans have a lot of old prejudices about ferals – and especially wolves.
Even in our universe attacks by wild wolves on humans are virtually unknown in the continental US.
Now if he was a coyote, that would be different.
Very true. There are some really rather depressing accounts of just how terrified normal North American wolves are of humans in some of Audubon’s works.
There are some video clips on the internet as well, mostly from park ranger programs. It makes the usual “Wolves! The Horror!” reaction seem exceptionally silly when you look at a poor wolf frantically cringing away from a preschooler who wants to look at it.
Of course, a good deal of the tradition comes from Europe and other areas, where the local wolves were often far more dangerous to humans – likely a result of being forced to live in far closer association with humans for a few millenia.
Why thank you! And very very good that strip is too…
And yes, I will indeed get back to updating the dossier thread; it’s just that things have been very busy for some time now. Hopefully that will slow down around the twelth of this month – and I have found the password again… (I have entirely too many of those things though).
Neerrr!!! (<— Annoying sound when you get something wrong.)
Since their Theme Park is Theme park themed… if there are different zones with different parts of the theme, they could have a section themed for their theme park. That section, being part of the whole theme park, would include themes from all the other sections. This means that one of the rides in that section would be the Theme Park within the Theme Park Themed. But to accurately make a Theme Park within the Theme Park Themed Ride you must portray…. I give up…
Lets just call it recursive zone
It’s “Theme Park World Land” and let’s leave it at that.
Te happiest place inside the happiest place on earth!
Okay, now I’m picturing the advertisements, where at the end they go:
soft spoken narrator woman: “theme park world, the happiest place on Earth”
Angry bald guy popping out of stage right:”ON EARTH!!!”
Of course, when have you seen theme parks that actually include all the possible areas derivable from their theme? e.g. Theme: world cities. But wait, Tangamandapio, Mexico, is not represented! What does it mean?
Scoffing? Sneer! It’s much more classy!
Nazi science sneers at logical conflicts!
But Scoff is such a fun word!
2nd panel lol.
“My name is [Insert here]…”
Please to meet you [Insert here].
I was born and raised in [place].
I like to [verb] [noun].
It is very [adjective].
Nice talking to you [Insert here].
Ah, mad libs, you have entertained me many a time with your strange stories of improbable… okay I need a verb ending in “ing”. Anybody?
Subvert the dominant paradigm!
Ah, the classic dart board trick. The usual technique for picking something without really making a decision.
The way I did mine was a bit modified. I took the dart board and laid it down on the ground, then threw the dart in the air. A bit easier, but a LOT more dangerous.
You didn’t put any labels on your eyes, did you? You know, the choices you didn’t like?
the dart bord is de panzy way of choosing ¬_¬
They shoulda used Extreme Acupuncture.
Is anybody else getting blank space where Challenger01’s avatar should be?
I’m seeing about 1/4 of a picture. I think Challenger had a little upload problem.
Working OK now.
yeah, I can see it now too.
Oh Max, you sneaky little feline. It’s always about snuggle time with you, isn’t it?
that’s what i was thinking :3 kitty has a bit of a one track mind XD
AI WANNA SNUGGLE W/ PPL ^_^ mainly gwape
if there is theme park world does that mean threes a theme park land on the other side of the country. also that bus looks like its mad of cardboard
you’re grammar and spelling look like their made of cardboard.
ka-BAM. (ooooooh ive been wanting to do that for sooooo long)
well you just made me feel really bad about myself. I’ll get over it though
It’s okay, he used “you’re” instead of “your”, thus stating that “you are bad grammar and spelling” look like they are made out of cardboard rather than the possesive “your bad grammar and spelling”,
It was the “Shell” that threw me off…
But only for a second.
then, I lol’d
If we get rid of apostrophes, then what will we use for Quotes withing Quotes?!
The apostrophe is different from the closing single quotation mark (usually rendered identically but serving a different purpose), and from the similar-looking prime ( ′ ), which is used to indicate measurement in feet or arcminutes, as well as for various mathematical purposes) and ʻokina ( ʻ ) (which represents a glottal stop in Polynesian languages). — Wikipedia.
I think this is the first time we’ve seen Keene’s whiskers.
Also, are those plants in the window a photograph?
Of course they are! There’s no windows on the SPACE BUS.
I still think that Theme Park World should be in SPACE. this, they are riding the SPACE BUS. Into SPACE. where Them Park World is in SPACE.
hey that’s the entire idea of sonic colours
It’s not IN SPACE, it’s ON EARTH! The happiest place on Earth! ON EARTH!
Why would the ferrets feel the need to emphasize it twice if they weren’t trying to convince everyone else it was true?
Well, then. Space-dibs on the window space-seat.
Let’s just not stop at the space rest area. That place is awful.
It’s not so bad if you’re not a space-bear.
I can always get people to let me have the window seat by telling them I get carsick. Which, surprisingly, only happens in ONE place on ONE road as I head over the mountains to Eastern Washington.
Getting space-sick in a space-suit isn’t a problem that other space-passengers have to deal with.
Seems to me that getting space-sick in a space-suit doesn’t space-bear thinking about.
“Insert here”, “TM”, “(k)” heh I just love these ferrets how they’re trying to be formal. X3
Nailed that Label.
Technically, “debriefing” comes AFTER the mission, when the agents report back. The one BEFORE the mission is just “briefing”.
But of course, these are the Milton ferrets we’re talking about. Would they know that? (Ok, maybe they do) Wouldn’t they exploit the joke there? Remember, they’ve got a Steward named Steward!
Well, yeah, but do you expect the FERRETS to know that?
Besides, they might not all make it back, so we might as well get the briefing and the debriefing over with at the same time. More efficient and whatnot.
On the topic of them not all making it back:
Mr. Bigglesworth: Help! I’m lost!
Mr. Bigglesworth: Hey, Me too!
Mr. Bigglesworth: Well, if I have to be trapped, it might as well be with you.
Mr. Bigglesworth: Yeah. So, you wanna go get some popcorn or something?
Mr. Bigglesworth: Sure! But first, are you a guy or a girl?
Mr. Bigglesworth: I’m offended that you even have to ask!
Mr. Bigglesworth: So… you’re a…
Mr. Bigglesworth: I happen to be a guy, THANK you very much!
Mr. Bigglesworth: Oh, okay then.
Mr. Bigglesworth: And… you are…
Mr. Bigglesworth: Oh! I’m a guy too!
Mr. Bigglesworth: Oh…
Mr. Bigglesworth: HEY! WE’RE OVER HERE!
Mr. Bigglesworth: Oh! That’s the group we should get back to them!
WHOOOO! up to date, and imma stay upto date because this comic is awesome and cute ^_^ <3
Thank YOU Wikifur! :3
and thank YOU for your Rick for your awesome comic!
Hello and welcome to our incredibly exclusive group of commenters. Anybody can join! Wait, that means we’re INclusive.
Hi, I’m Val!
haha lol, hello Val, nice to meet you :3
thank you ^^
alls you need is google, and some photoshop know how
Add a dash of imagination, and just a touch of tenderness… OOPS, too much!
PUPPY!!!!!!!! ITS SO CUTE XD!!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU! haha, I’m thinking I might make it my permanent avi now hehe
Ur name, Itz cute! :3
Thank you hehe
It comes from my more usual non-furry name PsychoNerd lol
Paying fanservice to the GrapexMax fans in the first panel, I see.
Now that’s a lot of theme parks Lolz;D!
Yup. Tunnel of Love time.
dont forget, the theme is theme parks ;3
there’ll be roller coasters and things that go really really fast, and that IS the tunnel of love xD
“For today only, Theme Park World will be a leash-free Funventure”
WAAAH?! Since the ferrets own the park, I would expect it to ALWAYS be leash-free.
That’s a goldarn good question.
Ah, but do they really own the park then? Mwahahah!
nu ai do MWUUHAHAHAAHAHHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH!
mai evil laf id better
True, who DOES own it? We need someone to solve this mystery.
Legally it’s owned by the Milton foundation, I’m sure.
And the leash thing is probably a county/state statute.
Yup. Reminds me of the Zoo, though I’m sure the ferrets would allow the same loophole.
Wait, wait, wait… there are TWO Argent Stonecutters?! *Pulls out pistol* Which one do I shoot?! WHICH ONE DO I SHOOT?!
Uh, both? There’s one Argent and he has two e-mail addresses
It’s Frank’s fault.
Wait wait wait…
If Miles is going to be there, doesn’t that mean a possible King appearance too? And… is that a possible new Job? *ponders* Oh well… guess we’ll find out soon enough. XD
(Still needs an avatar)
maybe but since he is a pet he’ll be at the threme pack having fun.
King could be a chaperone.
That’ll be a “no” ;P
King is the Junior Counselor. He doesn’t get paid, and he doesn’t get to play like all the campers, and he has no real authority and prays that none of the kids figure that out.
That would work, though technically he’s senior to any of the wolves. Except he can’t let anyone know.
I laughed out loud for real on this one.
i have to say the ferrets don’t plan there speeches do they?
“I am prepared to write a check of any size to solve these problems”
Do you like your face?
Cuz’ it won’t be there if you keep talking that way!!!
The cats will be mad about how Peanut should be you!!!!
hey u guys if rick DID choose sumbody to be in the comic who do u think it wud be… like, frum de comments? :3
Somebody expendable, probably.
Haz 2 B said,
I seriously DOUBT he will do that.
The cats look a bit silly. X3
Tags: “neighbor cats, neighbor dogs”. For the vague ear-shadows in the background of the first panel?
If he hit the label, then why isn’t it a Dartboard-themed theme park?
Because that would be silly!
“Here’s the roller coaster where the car flies off the jump at the end and hits a target! And over here’s the Ferris wheel that flings you around and then detaches your car so that you fly off and hit a target over there! And look at this one…”
Cool. But silly. And dangerous.
OH PEESHAW! XD
i wish i could go to a theme park where the theme is theme parks and was free! and max might get attacked for that comment
I tried it in Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 a long time ago. Not the free part though. Never really completed it the way I wanted to, but I had a massive project with easily more than 2000 visitors a day, 6 completed themes, 2 themes in progress and 4 more planned for the future. The idea was to make it the largest, most beautiful and funnest park ever conceptualized (at least to my knowledge).
The real question is: how does he pronounce the brackets in “magic(k)al?”
now THAT is a good question.
“Magic –parenthesized kay– al”
Any old FORTRAN geek will read that as magic-sub-k-ical.
Is it just me, or do Max and Grape both look a little lovestruck in the first panel…
His facial style is changing a bit. Something about the eyes and the mouths and the cheek fur? I like it! I like the expressions lately. Improvement is wonderful.
Yay for exciting new arc. <3
i going to ride the roller coaster!*one ride later* YEAH!*fall to ground then pukes*
“…and then Duke hit the lable.”
I’ve heard that B4 some where.
Itz STILL funney!!!
The sunglasses and ferret thing really does work well for Keene ^___^
“And uhhhhhhhhhh we’ve got some lovely themepark themed items and uhhhhhhhhhhh coming up on your left we’ve got a talking ferret and uhhhhhhhh….”
It’s going to look like something out of an M.C. Escher painting, isn’t it?
Given that the ferrets are willing to write “a check of any size” when faced by technological limitations, it might.
the theme of the theme park is theme parks? clever quite clever.*bows*
“My name is insert name here”. Only a ferret would have that kind of attention span.
“I, [recruit's name], do solemnly swear by [recruit's deity of choice] to uphold the Laws and Ordinances of the city of Ankh-Morpork, serve the public trust, and defend the subjects of His/Her [delete whichever is inappropriate] Majesty [name of reigning monarch] without fear, favor, or thought of personal safety; to pursue evil-doers and protect the innocent, laying down my life if necessary in the cause of said duty, so help me [aforesaid deity]. Gods Save the King/Queen [delete which is inappropriate].” – Detritus the Troll.
Can I offer you a Carrot to go with that sticky bit?
Remember, Vimes also does the whole routine in Night Watch. Only people who’re dim-witted, attention-deficient, or snarky would do such a thing.
There, that sums it up nicely. LETS MAKE THIS A LAW
ugh….I really hate this Max & Grape pairing…
ai lub it! ^_^
Agreed. Let’s move on to the Joey + Kosmik Kitsune action we’ve all been waiting for!
Best debriefing I’ve seen.
I’m jealous, and I’m not even a cat. ^_^
