  1. Yokashima

    Freefall restaurant?

    • Loki Impisi

      Served by the finest french ninja waiters of course.

      • Tosxychor

        But they look nothing like ninjas!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          That’s because they’re REALLY GOOD AT IT.

          • Hypergenesis

            Yup, it’s a wood dummy, see?

            *poke* *poke*

            No response.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I remember reading once about an artist who made his living as a life mannequin, and who was stabbed by someone “proving” he was really a dummy.

            But Great Googly Moogly fails me finding a reference.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            woo that sounds painful O_o

        • yarrofox

          Maybe they’re really ninja spies, so they don’t have to look anything like ninjas since they’re spies and spies are supposed to blend in!

          • AflacMan13

            Except for the fact that Ninjas already are spies and excel at blending in. So if they were Ninja Spies then they would fall under the double negative rule and would then not blend in at all. They would be clowns.

          • Thoth

            Well, I never suspected most clowns of being ninja. Would that make it a perfect cover?

          • yarrofox

            absolutely perfect cover!

      • thegamist

        Wait what if Jeeves was the butler?

        can I have your ordeeeeaaaAAAAH!!!

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          They wear spiked shoes so that they stick to the floor.

          Or possibly they attach their shoes to conveyor belts. Like with those metal restraints that bad guys put on the chairs they trap the goodguys in? Yeah, I like that idea.

          • thegamist

            yeah but one might be stupid enough to actually follow the rules of the ferrets (total chaos) And NOT wear those things
            :3

      • Frank

        For those of you who haven’t gotten the reference, it’s to the following story arc:
        http://freefall.purrsia.com/ff1100/fv01077.htm
        The arc spans strips 1,077 to 1,094

        • Argent Stonecutter

          “It must be so much fun being human. You guys can eat anything. Even the weird stuff like jalapeno peppers”.

          I don’t know why she can’t eat grapes, though. They should have included some fox genes in Bowman’s wolves.

    • Kitch

      I’d imagine more food comes out than goes in. xD

      • Hypergenesis

        and if could keep your meal, you get treated to seconds, free!

    • Nohbody

      Well, the place has already gone to the dog(gy!)s… :P

  2. Werecatdawn

    Awesome… funny as usual ^_^

    I would so eat there…

    • Noir the Sable

      I dunno…

      I’d much rather have my food actually stay on my plate while I’m trying to eat it…

      • Hypergenesis

        or inside after you ate it. ^^

  3. Pseudo Faux

    So… are they riding the cheeseburger hut first?

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      no, ai tink it de house of hotdogs :3

  4. Kamron

    So are all the rides named after theme-park restaurants and gift shops?

    • Hypergenesis

      might just be rides as gift shops are already named after attractions most of the time.

  5. SamBlob

    Um… the term “barf” comes to mind…

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      its wiered ai have never barfed on a ride befor :|

      • SamBlob

        Have you ever eaten anything on a free-fall ride before?

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          kind of ai was eatin sumthin but ai dropped it and it hit some1 ^_^;;

  6. IceKitsune

    lol so many restaurants Also yay Fido and Spo!

  7. Challenger01

    Can I borrow Ralph’s glasses? Those are awesome!

    • rWolf1991

      I agree!! They look so awesome!!

    • yoyodude

      I actually HAVE those glasses, now I just need to find them :O

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        They look kind of like those things that eye doctors give you after they dilate your pupils.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Except they’re rigid.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I used to have a pair that looked like that to wear over my glasses. They were less “awesome” than “cheesy”.

    • Charlie P.

      I wish I had them as well! I’m forced to wear ones that look like Fido’s! They were awesome in the 70’s cheesy in the 2010’s >.>

    • Hypergenesis

      Me thinks that’s called a visor.

    • Valerio

      Can I borrow Ralph? HE is awesome! :D

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        no, ai get him first! DX

        • yarrofox

          awwwwww…. I was gonna take him. : (

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Noooo… you have to keep your pretty grey fox.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            no ai just joking u guyz can take im

        • Valerio

          too bad. First caller, first served! :D

    • thegamist

      DID any of you guys notice how his glaces are NOT hooked behind his ears AND could probably fall off any moment?

      • Solario the Visored

        Ha-HA! Now I have seen it, and I will never un-see it! XD

        Also, my shades are much more like Fido’s.

      • Frank

        They’re hooked behind his… cheeks?

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          nuu his cheek fluff ^_^

      • Argent Stonecutter

        That’s pretty standard for toon glasses.

        That’s why mine don’t have any earpieces at all.

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Yeah. Nose-pinch is easier to deal with, even if it does always remind me of Mr. Limpet.

  8. Radio Viewer

    Rotating restaurant in freefall?

    Sounds fun. I want to try that.

    • Kamron

      “Yes, I’ll have a double order of tournedos in white sauce.”

      And I know that those have nothing to do with spinning but they sounds like they should.

  9. yoyodude

    I can see where the theme park theme can get confusing XD

  10. Surge

    I want to eat there, every few minutes, you get a new dinner! XD

  11. rWolf1991

    Haha! That a restaurant I want to try!
    A freefalling restaurant

  12. Pseudo Faux

    *facepaws* Duh! The theme is THEME PARKS! x.=.x

    Everything will be named after a ride, everything

    • Argent Stonecutter

      And the rides will be named after a different ride.

      • Hypergenesis

        or a mix of rides.

      • Frank

        “Argh! I can’t find anything in this park! Let’s go to Disney World!”
        “That’s the name of the roller-coaster”
        “The roller-coaster?”
        “No, that’s the name of the ticket stand.”

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Thanks, Lou.

          Meanwhile…

          “I’ve been trying to find the exit for hours!”
          “That sign says ‘Parking lot’. Try that?”
          “Been there, that’s the Bumper Cars.”
          “Egress?”
          “Petting zoo.”
          “There’s an attendant… Excuse me, how do we get out of the park?”
          “You want the Ultimate Ride.”
          “No, we want to get… out… of… oh, wait a minute.” *headslap*

          • Frank

            You’re welcome, Abbott.

            BTW, what would the Penultimate Ride be?

          • yarrofox

            is there a third base ride somewhere here too?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I dunno.

          • yarrofox

            I’ll go ask Who

  13. EchoFireant

    Restaurant in free fall? Sounds like a fun ride :D

    • Kamron

      It’s a continuous freefall in a loop. Or through portals.

      • Challenger01

        Can you say *achievement unlocked* “Terminal Velocity”? hahah puns

        • Krzeszny the Fox

          My first comment :3 I just finished reading this comic on my iTouch and now I am on my computer to write a comment and see alt text.
          Challenger01, you are “thinking with portals”? xD so I guess you played the game. Anybody with Steam account can add me to friends, and don’t forget to join Housepets! group on Steam

          • yarrofox

            Hey! love you’re avatar!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Foxies!

            I pounced!

            I pounced again!

            Great Googly Moogly!

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            wai r der so many foxes all de sudden :3

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Because foxes are awesome.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            yes true X3

          • yarrofox

            @ “sonic id furreh ” that’s because I’m a trendsetter.

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          welcome to da housepets universe ^_^!!

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            woops wrong reply
            suposed to be at Krzeszny

  14. sonic id furreh!!!

    ai wanna go on a freefall rotating resturant :D

  15. namelessone

    Greatest restaurant ever

  16. Thoth

    Well, that’s one way to keep the rides to yourself; confuse the customers so that they can’t find them… Not only do the ferrets get line-cutting privileges, but they can thus eliminate most of the lines.

  17. Gingly

    Well, I guess it is keeping in theme with the “theme park” theme. Also, Sergeant Ralph in his off-duty, er, outfit!

    • Pseudo Faux

      His collar looks like its a whistle.

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        ai think it is o_o;;

    • FurryNerd

      lol, i guess it pays to read all the comments (the theme park theme thing lol)

      • Gingly

        I was just keeping in theme with the theme of commenting on the theme park theme.

        Ooor I was just really slow in posting and a bunch of other posts mentioning the same thing popped up before mine. Possibly. :P

  18. Dracona

    irony is, everything is over-the-top expensive :P , then again, the ferrets are there.
    and, is the Go karts food to go?

    • Siddy

      nope, it is just Fast food :3

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        or food on wheels X3

  19. Loki Impisi

    CAPTIALISM

  20. i am

    Eating, Shopping, and Trilling Rides rolled into one? Can’t you build one of those in real life Rick?? T.T Good thing the barf bags r free!! XD

  21. HunkRlz

    I’ll stop by the gift shops first, then have my barf bag ready for use after the rotating freefall restaurant and lets not forget the fast passes unless the ferrets have a freefall buffet ! :-) Ralph’s glasses looks awesome on him!

  22. ReCreate

    ahaha i smell dissapointment

  23. KnifeToYourFace

    Suddenly, Im not hungry anymore.

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      this made meh even more hungy -_-

  24. Firewolf

    Haha! Eat like the romans do just took on a whole new meaning! Eat on the way up, lose it on the way down. =)

  25. Mr.Zero

    ….Okay. Let’s start betting. How long do you think it will take for something to go HORRIBLY wrong?

    I say five minutes.

    • Firewolf

      Define HORRIBLE.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I suspect it already has.

      • Kamron

        Of course; the ferrets were clever enough to make sure everything went wrong thirty-five minutes ago.

  26. JaiyDaWoof

    I hope the plates are bolted to the tables, but I am more curious as to how the food is served

  27. gagi

    i wonder why the “this tall” sign was even there … i don’t think hight restriction makes any sense for going into a restaurant :P lol

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Does a restaurant count as a “fun ride”?

      • Thoth

        Well, there’s always the “railroad dining car” approach, and tables which hold the dishes down, for those that would like repeat customers. Sounds like a fun ride to me…

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Except that “Dining Car” would probably be a zombie-themed ride, where the seats are giant plates and bowls.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Now, HOW CAN WE MAKE THIS REALITY?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            wow, my new avatar is really scary when I talk in all caps. I can hear him in my head.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            and it’s easy to recognize as the only one that has fire in it!

  28. Corpy

    Most confusing theme park map ever. Look for the places named after food joints and you’ll find the rides I suppose.

  29. Lupus

    SPO <3

    WE MISSED YOU

  30. CY_Law

    “But I saw a roller coaster just now!”
    “Oh that’s a ‘drive-through’…”

    But really, there’s a roller coaster in the background, :P I wonder why…

  31. Hypergenesis

    Two roller coasters!

    Weeeeee!(ch) one is the real ride?

    Giant water slide FTW

    • Argent Stonecutter

      That’s… the rest room… uh…

      • Hypergenesis

        Nah, that’s the drink all you can soda fountain. With the occasional giant brown jello-logs.

        Let’s go on the bumper cars, first soda to spill treat!

  32. iHavezMyBirdo

    I’m so confused.

  33. Argent Stonecutter

    It’s Tokyo–style naming! Laundromat? No, that’s just a restaurant called “Laundromat”. The owner thought the name looked neat.

  34. Justin

    …..so if the shops are named after rides. Should that make the rides named after shops. Wow that would give me a migraine trying to keep up with that.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      You’re not thinking like a ferret!

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I tried.

        Resulted in new avatar.

    • Hypergenesis

      No no no. Everything would be named after rides. so look for the ones with double ride names and that’s the rides.

      Go coasters anyone?

    • yarrofox

      no, the rides are named after shops AND look like shops too.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Laundromat… can you survive “spin dry”?
        Crazy Al’s Used Bumper Cars!

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          “Hey Al! This one has some grey stuff on the headrest!”
          “Oh, uh, that’s the, uh, newest… supersonic… model…”
          “I’ll take it!”

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Wait, how do you puke out the back of your head…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Don’t ask.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            “My brain is going into my FEEEEEEET!!”

  35. Kitch

    First time we’ve seen Ralph in a casual collar. =P Nice to see Spo in on it as well.

  36. Inu225

    Ok… I have a theory about the cognitive minds of the Milton Ferrets:
    You take two awesome things in the world and in someway combine those two into one big “awesome”.

    Here’s a formula explaining my theory:
    (awesome A) x (awesome B) = (awesome AB)

    So… If you take restaurants and combine it with theme park rides you get awesome!
    I call it the “Milton Theory”. (Not practical in reality)

    • e

      YOU KNOW TO MUCH!*karate chop you in your neck*

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        YOU KNOW THAT HE KNOWS TOO MUCH!

        I fire a snake out of a cannon at you! Unfortunately, it is a milk snake. OR IS IT?

        Tune in next time for an exiting new installment of… SNAKE BEING FIRED AT PEOPLE OUT OF A CANNON!

        …you know, we probably could have come up with a better name for that…

        • Inu225

          Oh yah?! Well I know that you know that I know too much!
          XD

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Well, I KNOW that YOU KNOW that I KNOW that HE KNOWS that YOU KNOW too much.

            Next time… it won’t be a milk snake…

            Probably…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            We have a milk snake.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            How was it you tell the difference between a milk snake and a coral snake, again? Other than eating them, I mean.

            Snake EAAATER!

          • Inu225

            Idk
            Don’t have too much snakes where I live.

      • Inu225

        Wha…*ack!* *Cough!* *Cough!*
        (Collapses on floor)

        • Frank

          “Everybody stand back! I know CPR!”
          “What’s CPR?”

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Awesomeness commutes?

      No way, man, there’s noting awesome about commuting.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        (yes, I know that’s distributivity, but I’m not going to let logic stand in the way of an awesome pun)

  37. e

    Fido looks taller than the Sergeant.

  38. Valerio

    oy mama.
    Ralph is cute to no end!

    • Jeff

      I knew this would happen.

      Fire up the shipyards, time to build another one…

    • Ada

      Was thinking the same Val. Panel three = squeee!!!

      • Valerio

        you are so right! But #4 is non-the-less awesome!! ;)

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        You confused me there for a second.

  39. Salenstormwing

    Next you’ll be telling me that the Photo Booth is a roller coaster and that the Indiana Ferret Awesome Action Show is the photo booth.

    • yarrofox

      Of course! it all makes perfect sense! and the fun house is actually the spooky house and vice versa!

  40. Squival

    freefall restraunt? Does want

  41. Hoheh

    They… they don’t have BUMPER CARS?! Classic ride is a classic. There must be something really good instead, so maybe super rollercoaster?

    • Kamron

      They decided to save time and space by combining all the rides into one megaride. It begins with an loop-de-loop and corkscrew before both cars slam into each other and carom into the first cobra loop. Then comes the drop tower portion. And the Ferris wheel.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        That would explain why Keene needs front-of-the-line privileges.

      • yarrofox

        Does it have the little spinning teacups ride too?

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          Of course it does! They combined the teacups with the ferris wheel made out of ferris wheels!

          • yarrofox

            sweet! when can I ride?

  42. Hypergenesis

    Laws of inertia dictates that your barf would travel to the ceiling and ultimately fall back on you when the ride stops. ^^

    • Kamron

      it never stops

  43. MrMutt

    That would be one sloppy restaurant ride.

  44. FerreTrip

    …Oooohhh, dear, I think I might smell a plot point: Complaints.

  45. Argent Stonecutter

    This sounds like something a Great Kitsune might come up with…

    • yarrofox

      What if one of the ferrets was the Great Kitsune?! Or maybe Jeeves is!

    • FurryNerd

      didn’t the Great Kitsune come from another dimention? because in that strip he was interupted with something. Also, i think his grin is cute <3

      • Thoth

        Well, he’s apparently another “Higher Being”, with access to vast powers, an existence which lets him sort though infinite numbers of lower-order dimensions, and the ability to remember and handle a rules system too complex to fit into a “normal” universe.

        Ergo, presumably he/she/it won’t entirely fit into a normal universe either.

  46. WingedWolfGirl

    On the bright side,
    At least the map actually tells you what is and isn’t a restaurant.
    Otherwise, you end up wondering around aimlessly for hours!

    • Frank

      “We need to check the map”
      “No, ‘the map’ is a popsicle stand!”

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Maybe the Popsicle has a map on it? No, just another kind of bad joke… *sigh*

    • WingedWolfGirl

      Oy, well ya!
      u DO have to now where the map is FIRST of course.

      …Now U pelpl have me wondering what “You Are Here” is. O_0

  47. Valerio

    it’s easy, then! Go look for a restaurant and bingo! find your ride.

  48. Vv45689

    Freefalling restaurant . . . BLERHG!

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      YO DAWG THOU SHALT NOT WEARETH THE FACE OF ANOTHER. THAT TOTALLY ISN’T COOL-ETH.

      • Frank

        But since you’re both using the same avatar, wouldn’t it be his own face?

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          It was mine first. I think. I’M SO CONFUSED.

          • WingedWolfGirl

            Confusing is when U have conversations like this, and then change your avatar.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Yes. Just as Planned. Or not. but whatever.

            MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  49. Argent Stonecutter

    No Ralph or Fido-and-Spo avatars yet. What a bunch of slackers.

  50. blackwaltz7

    do Fido and Spo sound that much alike that Ralph thought it was Fido talking? or did when did everyone else start talking to Spo?

    • yarrofox

      Maybe he saw Spo stand up?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Ralph: “I wish you’d quit using that squeaky voice, Fido. It’s creepy.”

  51. umean123

    Well, this was a disappointment! Everything is associated with food chubby peoples paradise.

  52. petitcake

    Best. Theme park. Ever.

  53. KennyT

    I adore the whistle collar. :)

    • Valerio

      whistle tag on grey collar on Ralph = TOTAL AWESOMENESS! :D

  54. thegamist

    food + freefall = BAAARF (so that’s what my inside looks like)

  55. Valerio

    If I’m allowed a blasphemous observation, I don’t like much the new muzzle style. They’re too big and blunt. Sorry, Rick-Sama :(

  56. Chaos Lightspeed

    Worst theme park ever? or best restaurant food chain on the planet? you decide!

  57. Fuzzypaws

    Still wondering what happened to Spo hiding from other animals!

  58. AdriGummi

    And agaiiiin… SPO! Oh, little mouse, I missed a lot your presence! It’s one of my fave characters.

    Also, it’s nice to can see Ralph again… I hope to also see Kevin soon!

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Kevin…

      all I can say is…

    Am i the ONLY one that notices that Fido’s glasses change from being the usual round, tinted glasses in the 3rd and 4th panels to seemingly, yet trendy clear rectangle ones? Just an observation. Awesome comic as ever ^.^

  62. Solario the Visored

    I love how, over time, an artist’s work just keeps improving.
    Like how Fido’s pec lines make him look more like a tough police dog, and how Spo’s tiny, yelling mouth and gesturing arms are so cute! :3

    …Also, until I glanced at the tags for this strip just now, I never new Sergeant Ralph had a name. As always, I am the master of observation-fu. :P

  63. Frank

    LOL! Just noticed Fido stops wagging his tail in panel 3

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Hmm… perhaps he doesn’t like abject terror?

      I have always hated drop towers, so I know how he feels.

    Those are not barf bags.
    They’re doggy bags.

    You know, for the meal that you “almost” finished… if you get my drift.
    Let’s hope you don’t. ;)

  65. FurryNerd

    well the theme is ‘theme parks’ lol, makes sense when you think about it. lol

  66. FurryNerd

    anybody else notice how in the first panel fido’s eye is kindy beady. lol, I just think of him saying that sarcastically.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      From the cannon ride! Which is called “Tunnel of Love”.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Oh… Oh dear…

        We’re sorry, Max and Grape, for our previous hopes in this regards…

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          “Hey, why does this Tunnel of Love ride just have a platform in a vertical shaft?”
          *platform starts rising, accelerating rapidly*
          “Ah, shoot.”
          “Hold me, Grape. I’m scared of hights. I love you, Grape.”
          “I love you too, Maxy.”
