Just so you know

I should have started sooner but inspiration strikes at all the wrong times; may take a bit longer than usual

    I only notice the comics are late because you broadcast this message through RSS. But as long as I’m here I might as well be overly dramatic: NOT AGAIN! *burns down the house*

    ooh is it gonna be a spoonful of awesome? please let it be a spoonful… and some chocolate mixed in… mmm chocolate

    • psychoJoker36

      A spoonful? Housepets on a nightly basis is a cup of awesome, minimum

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        I’ve always measured it in quarts, at least.

      • Kytan

        with extra chocolate?

        • psychoJoker36

          Extra is a base value. On a great night, Rick can actually give you too much chocolate, but you still eat it

          • Challenger01

            That’s called “Chocolate Overload” or as I like to put it “Give me more chocolate until I die… Overload”

          • Mitchrock0

            But Peanut can’t have chocolate. (because he’s allergic, you see)

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Dog-safe chocolate, or even white chocolate, is fine.

          • psychoJoker36

            But you don’t die, cuz Rick brings you back to life with his ever overflowing awesomeness

  3. dalonewolf25

    We’ll wait. It is your comic, after all! E|:D

  4. Werecatdawn

    If I can put up with VG Cats then I can put up with this. :)

  6. Icharus

    Aww, and on the night I’m all ready for it, too!
    Just kidding, take as long as you need.

  7. Thoth

    Inspiration is virtually always worth it… Unless, of course, it’s an inspiration as to how to destroy the universe.

    Those, of course, are mine.

  8. xhunterko

    *cracks whip*
    Get it done before 2am or else! (please)

    • Lance

      Hey! He’ll get it done when he gets it done.

      • xhunterko

        of course, that was a joke, joke. hellooo, couldn’t you tell it was a joke? chill

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          I think the international, pan-lingual signal for joke is now “: P”

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Or possibly even “:^P”

          • xhunterko

            Just out of curiousity how many situational avatars do you have?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            I actually created a third email address fr the sole purpose of being my third avatar.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            And I replace the “what” pic with this one, so all of those lines of conversation are well and truly derailed.

        • kupo86

          I think that was a joke also. The Duke Nukem Forever “When it’s done” thing.

          • Val Kilmer Batman


            “No! MY MIND REJECTS IT!”

          • kupo86

            I actually laughted out loud when I saw that comic where the Halo dude in the green suit removes his helmet to reveal that he always has been the mighty Duke. *still has hope that DNF will eventually be done*

          • Argent Stonecutter

            They need to have one where he removes his helmet… and it turns out it’s Samus again.

  9. Val Kilmer Batman

    Ooh! Ambition is good! Now I have to stay up even layer! Darn you and your amazingness, Rick!

  10. Challenger01

    Inspiration rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing. Take your time, I am in no rush!

    • Teh Brawler

      I am one of the few people who actually enjoyed that movie.

      • Challenger01

        My #3 favorite movie of all time, only behind “Gone in 60 Seconds” and “The Matrix”

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          I demand, politely, to know what movie you speak of. Please.

          • Challenger01

            The line comes from “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” in which Optimus Prime says “Sam, fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing” I just decided to change the line around accordingly to fit the situation. Make sense now?

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Yup. Thanks for that.

        • Elwood Blutarsky

          With a name like Challenger01 I would have figured Vanishing Point would be up higher on that list.

          • Challenger01

            It’s actually #4 on my list. The only reason Gone in 60 Seconds is at the top is because I own a 1966 Mustang. The 10 minute chase scene with Eleanor helps as well.

          • Elwood Blutarsky

            I myself prefere the original Gone in 60 Seconds with the 40 minute chase scene, 93 wrecked cars and the 1973 Mustang that rightfully got top billing. Still the Nic Cage one is good minus that CGI jump.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          A list of top movies, with no appearances by Darryl Hannah… or at least Milla Jovovich? No Blade Runner? No Fifth Element? THIS IS MADNESS!

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Nonono, late, not LATE.

      : P

      • Firewolf

        Well what if it’s an exclamation? 0.o

  12. Val Kilmer Batman

    Oh my, this one MUST be ambitious! I don’t think Rick has ever been more than a couple of minutes later than normal. If even his time travel powers can’t handle this, it HAS to be good! I shiver in anticipation!

  13. Sleet

    Mayne, I’m going to have to read it in the morning if it’s not up in a few minutes. I expect it to be worth it, though.

  14. Mitchrock0

    PFFFF, it’s an excuse for procrastination. An excuse which I don’t entirely mind. =3 Inspire away, ol’ chap. I can’t wait to see it.

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      How dare-a you! Rick will-a smite-a you for-a you insolence! Go on, Rick! A-smite a-him!


      He’s a-cookin’ up a-somethin’…

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Oops, forgot the “: P”.

        : P

        • Midnight Wolf

          lol Family Guy ref.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Is that-a you, Chico?

  15. Lance

    Well looks like I’ll be reading it tomorrow. Good night everyone!

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      I almost fell asleep, but I decided to play solitare instead. I’ll check back every three games or so.

      • Val Kilmer Batman

        Nope, can’t do it. See you all in the morning. Or roundabouts noon, since that’s probably when I’ll wake up.

  16. Val Kilmer Batman

    I’m beginning to wonder if Rick had to start a new strip from scratch and consign the one he WAS working on to either Friday’s update or the unused drafts folder…

  17. Rick Griffin

    Still going to be maybe another hour guys

    • Challenger01

      I’m beginning to believe my boy Kingy will be in it cause we haven’t seen him yet. And you just want to make sure he’s all nice and fluffy!

    • RockstarRaccoon

      Wow… you weren’t kidding about being busy… XD

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      “Don’t you worry, ’bout a thing. ‘Cus every little thing, is gonna be alright!”

    • dalonewolf25

      Eastern or central time?

      • Hypergenesis

        I think an hour is an hour whichever timezone used. . .

    • Aquablast

      Don’t worry and take your time, Rick! We can wait… I think!

    • Thoth

      I think that most of the readers will survive – although quite a few are now on complete bed rest.

      At least until morning. If they wake up and still can’t get their Housepets, it may be the end of civilization as we know it.

  18. Sherry

    Love the look of distrust in the 4th panel!

  19. Challenger01

    Now how did I KNOW King would be in the next comic. It’s like I have ESP or something.
