haha already asleep. XD
Curse you, sleep!!!!!!!
Ah ha! No worm rider but this will do! Avast ye scurvy worm! Feel the power of my fire!
(couldn’t help it cough)
Gosh darn it you changed it at the last minute!
ãnyways, linkrot E|:P
max got SHUT DAOWN XD!!!!
(goes to sleep) (gets cursed)
Ghastly’s special attack sharply increases!
(actually, I’m never really sure what it does to ghost types)
Well, all I know that if your Pokémon is put to sleep by a haunter, ghastly, gengar, etc., it’s game over already, my friend. Nightmare attacks will ultimately kill you…
Quick! Use a remedy.
Remedy won’t work if he’s already vulnerable to more sleep!
When the move curse is used by a ghost type, it causes the user (a ghost type) to cut their current hitpoints in half, the oppenent will then lose 1/4 of their total hitpoints each turn until they faint and/or are swiched out.
But the move description dosen’t tell you this (even though 95% of the people that use the move only teach it to ghost types to begin with) so ya gotta kinda figure it out through observation.
I was asleep. But no, someone had to wake me up. To ask me where the pepto was. Right in front of them it was. So here I am, in the early morning Housepets brawl. Grump.
Cool! One grumpy ferret!
One sleepy ferret.
Back! Back you foul being!
I’m not a fowl! Fowls is food!
*ga- well yah they kaindof r ^-^
Now I want a falafel. I haven’t had one in years, I don’t think. Some SOBs burned down the local middle-eastern restaurant I used to go to.
Is dawning where you live?
Note: “Early” morning usually refers to 1am-6am
No sir, it’s oh dark hundred.
Thanks for the note.
Oh well just wondering.
I’m not a sir x3
Just 1 year and 2 months to coming of age.
so ur ah girl
Im almost 17, so im not a sir.
So I should call you “young master”, like Jeeves?
No, only Alex or Mikel
can ai call u malex
Very well, sir.
I don’t think age is actually a restriction for knighthood; that would’ve made there be practically no knights when the life expectancy was about 20
That was skewed by infant mortality. Once you got past that your life expectancy was much higher.
No words can describe how i feel
Ohh i gona use it a lot
Now i have 8 names!
YYAAAAAAYYYY AI GET TO CALL U MALEX XD!!!!!!!!!!
Isn’t that an antiacid?
Jeez, at least give him the common courtesy to tell him you have a headache XP
Ohi Lance, fancy meeting you here.
I just noticed after increasing the brightness of my computer that there is a hallway in panel 1. Lol.
Haha! Owned by sleep.
Planning Fail. x3
I knew I should’ve brought ma DS! *grumble grumble*
heh alt txt
Wait, he ran him over?
That will hurt tomorrow!
It’s hurting now DX
DO. NOT. WAKE. GRAPE.
What he said ^.
But you must! It is your destiny!
Hmm, I have no peanut avies.
They live in the realm of Peanut&Tarot
UR WELCOME -_-
Hey! Give me back ma kitteh!
Huh? You’re a father?
if he wakes her uo then what happens?
You don’t want to know. TRUST ME.
Awww cute he couldn’t get over all the night.
Still, the woodland critters have yet to pull their stunt. If they do. And we have yet to see if Sabrina actually conjured up anything. You know, just to show Max up.
Indeed, and Max is alone now.
but grape wood just use her “broom to the face” powers on de woodland critters
Allegedly the game between Max and Marvin only involved a partner and Marvin partner is Zachary, who is passed out.
But now i wonder if Sabrina is also playing and Tarot it’s her partner.
Sabrina is a recruit.
Recruit of who?
I think that the recruits of Max are the Bigglesworths.
Sabrina was recruited by Grape.
yes cuz the recruit cood recruit other recruits so the other recruits cood help the original recruit and the person that recruited the original recruit
Actually, Sabrina is a substitute for a recruit.
So Tarot is a partner of Sabrina?
Sabrina is a substitute for Tarot, who isn’t in the game any more.
And at least he cares enough about zach to see about getting him feeling better. So he cares somewhat there.
There better not be kittens after this arc!
Not with them asleep.
Eh I think not! ^^
What will think Peanut!!!
*what will peanut think!
Are we being dreamed by Peanut? Or a butterfly?
You mean figuratively, right?
Grape obviously does NOT feel like “practising making kittens”. If you wake her, the only thing that will be bared are claws and teeth…
there would better be atmospheric drag, though
naw, maxie only wanted to play checkers with nis new glow in the dark checker set.
Alt-text: Should have borrowed a DS or something…
Yeah… about that… I sure hope Peanut isn’t the only one there is to borrow a DS from. That would’ve been awkward.
Max is probably immune to romantic embarrassment.
One comic strip helps your statement…
Another comic strip disagrees…
No fair. Two girlfriends at once requires enhanced immunity!
girl friends r de thing of the devil -_-
max lovers, panel two looks like a great new avatar. =3
Shh! Don’t give them ideas
*Max. I hate leaving my typos alone. >_<
See what happens after a good ol’ planned action?
I was thinking more like panel four.
The clock is ticking ^^
You saved the version without bite mark.
Yes! Yes! Yes!
I finally get 2 c one of those pre-Ninja edits I keep hearing about!
Awesome! You cought it before Rick could correct it! Look at your gravatar… Max’s right ear! It doesn’t have the bite. LOL
Wow, I was actually going to erase it too!
Now I will hug him, and squeez him, and call him George.
Epic win Sir!
yah cuz rick iz laike lightnin fast XD
What i telled you about that language around here?!? *puts up EPIC JAR* now pay up..
bu- but ai neveh had 2 paw befor *uses puppy-dog eyes*
lol at sleeping Grape also I’m going to predict that Max is going to get scared by Sabrina and Tarot (or maybe just Sabrina) after this
It would be funny if he decides it’s okay to jump ship just because he thought Marvin had already left
Too late, my friend…
Although, you have to agree that it’s quite nasty of max for not allowing for medical leave.
hehe looks like panel two won. X3
Actually in a good strip of faces at least half of them will be made avies. I’m guessing also a Marvin out of this.
“Gear” spelled backwards?
Ok, *ahem* RAGE!
Gears of rage!
Yes, yes, I am not liking Max here.
A little bit too egotistical, no?
A little too cat-like.
Of the chestshire variety?
Of the feline variety.
Why, whatever would make you say that?
I have been owned by up to 11 cats at a time. I know what they’re like.
Make it 13 and you got yourself a valid point.
I got plenty of points here.
Odd, I see only 30 of ‘em…
You seem nervous.
Awesome lighting, keep it up, but where’s Marvin’s tail?
It’s there, just like in the Mr.Bigglesworth dressup strip
I actually think Max looks better without the bite mark in his right ear. *Am I the only one that cought that?* If you just left it out from here on I don’t think it would be any biggie.
Happened at the end of Imaginate Too:
Saved it because people kept trying to catch Rick making that mistake.
And that’s part of the problem: it’s a mistake. Max has that bite mark and there’s no real way to explain it getting healed.
So, no, you’re not the only one that thought that
Only because you made it unique…
How do you catch a unique animal?
Simple. You steal their soul with a camera and you cherish it for the rest of your life!
No, silly, u nique up on it.
(begins to clap slowly)
Nope. Stealing their soul is way much easier…
heh bad puns XP
HA! I saw that Rick! Youi corrected it!
Oh, sorry. You meant “caught”, not “thought”. I guess you can ignore my previous comment.
Not surprised. Grape LOVES her sleep.
Until Peanut comes in…
“I love you, Maxie. But get between me and my naptime and I’ll rip you to shreds, got it?”
Marvin could win the meta-game, like when Granny Weatherwax won the staring contest by losing it.
But the meta-game here is controlled by the Great Kitsune!
Not that meta-game. The meta-game inside the community but above this specific contest.
No no no!
The kitsune moderates A GAME.
Max and Marvin are playing a SCARING game.
The woodland critters and the bigglesworths are playing a meta-game. I think.
No, that’s a subplot of the scaring game.
And it’s turtles all the way down.
Oh no! Not another reference I don’t get!
I forgot about that.
Max on the last panel it’s like my infancy on christmas night waiting for Santa
I remember when I tried staying up until 12 to see if Santa Claus would pop in at any moment. I even slept next to the Christmas tree. Sadly, I had forgotten about the hallway in which my presents were placed the next day…
I remember getting asleep on the couch and being carried to bed without noticing it and wake up in the morning blaming me to fall asleep.
You mean, having fell to sleep?
You get my point no?
Yes, I’m sorry, it’s 2am, so yeah…
I’m surprised there aren’t smelling salts in Zach’s ghost hunter kit.
Just incense I guess…
Or else Marvin’s afraid to go digging through it.
I would be.
It must be like the Medicine Seller’s Box.
Grape stays up during the day hanging out with Peanut (or he keeps waking her up)…so her normal sleep cycle is all messed up and she sleeps at night…what a strange time for a cat to be sleeping. lol.
Or they could send a Bigglesworth or a forest critter for it.
Or use a forest critter. Got a skunk handy?
Lol Max’s face in panel 2 reminds me of myself.
I knew you would say that… E|;D
You must be psychic! O_o
Uh, no, Sabrina is the psychic
Better luck next time, Max
Maybe some other holiday =P
Sheesh–it’s only 1:22 AM here and ALREADY there are new avatars? That’s crazy @_@;
Nice one, Grape X3
Max should know from Peanut…
Beware! Glamis hath murder’d sleep! Cawdor shall sleep no more!
I think if this place is haunted, the ghosts should be scared more of Grape. Seriously, she’s more scarier than any ghost or demon, when she’s cranky.
Step Right Up! Make Your Bets on The 3rd Party Scares! Please Note You Can Only Make Bets In COOKIES! No Bonus Points, Friends Points, Cash or Anything Else Just Cookies! The Winner at The End of The Arc Gets ALL of THE COOKIES!
Sorry, but Adam Malkovich didn’t authorize you having cookies.
You have to go through the whole Bottle Ship, then fight a Queen Metroid before you get your cookies.
Granary fragmentation morterboard?
Ack not again! I do like google, but some things are too random to search for. A little help here?
try Bing lol
NO! NEVER TRY BING!
I tend to get WORSE results when I try Bing.
i’ll put two cookies on Grape sleeping the whole night, something super-scary happening, and somebody (probably Peanut) will come and ‘rescue’ her.
With Tarot making him fly like Spot (superdog)!
I place 1M cookies on the Val Kilmer Batman theory which states that a third party disobeys all rules of cartoon physics…
I place another 1M cookie in the fact that the Good Ol’ Dogs will appear in this arc.
Hate to bust your buble, but I already betted on bino the first few strips or so, I believe. So, yeah, cookies on bino.
how many cookies will that be?
2 dozen or so should be enough
I put 7 cookeies that some of the dogs will show up as a third party and scare the others out. And I’ll add three more that at least one of ‘em is Peanut or Tarot.
And Now The Current Prize Cookies is 2,000,012 Cookies. Any More Bets? Remember, This Ends When The Arc Ends!
I’ll put …half a cookie on the theory that real ghosts’ll show up, and everybody but Marvin runs screaming into the night; cuz he thinks its fake.
1K for Peanut appearing and scaring all the cats with Tarot help
And Now The Current Prize Cookies is 2,001,012.5 Cookies. Any More Bets? Remember, This Ends When The Arc Ends!
I place ∞ cookies that it will end in a funny, cute, or awkward way!
And Now The Current Prize Cookies is ∞2,001,012.5 Cookies. Any More Bets? Remember, This Ends When The Arc Ends!
And Now The Current Prize Cookies is ∞2,001,036.5 Cookies. Any More Bets? Remember, This Ends When The Arc Ends!
so…Grape is asleep, Zach is unconcious, theres a whole bunch of Bigglesworths and assorted Forest Critters in the building…and Max and Marvin are out to outscare each other…..RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!!
I agree, we should run, but I don’t think it’s one of the signs of the Apocalypse… But if Peanut gets anymore devious, we just may want to avoid going outside for awhile. X)
meh don’t worry marvin zach will be fine…um…well he would have been BEFORE you discoverd he had a use as a speed bump
Grape uses a blanket?
better question might be, where did she get it from?
She had it when they arrived.
I think it’s a sleeping bag.
Maxie is Evil X3
lol, grape’s already asleep. xD
1) WHERE is Zach run into Marvin with his foot?
2) I thought cats and paws.
3) Who’s snoring?
BTW, Alone in the Dark was a horrible movie.
Alone in the Dark was not a game of the GameCube?
1. Zach was passed out in the hall, Marvin must have been looking for him and tripped on him.
3. I think that’s Grape.
Sorry, number 2 was, “I thought cats HAD paws (not feet).
Ah, but then these are Housepets! Cats =D Anthromorphic cats, which have some humanistic features like feet/paws and hands/paws.
Cats feet are called paws but they’re still feet. Little feet are wee paws. Wee paws for station identification.
??? Erm, is that Grape and Max? Alone, in a room at night? Okay then…eh, what the heck, Max is taking this all to seriously anyways.
Yes, but to Max’s misbenifit, she fell asleep.
True, but I’d feel weird, being with a girl you liked, alone, in the dark, while she was sleeping. *gulps* 0_0
Yes, but Grape really likes her sleep. She’s gotten used to Peanut waking, but everyone else… RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!
Even more reason to be feeling wierd/afraid.
I c ‘nother Biff cameo.
Oh the lighting, It iz awesome!
Who even uses smelling salts still?
I know right! smelling salts Stink!
Just wave a skunk in his face.
Lol she fell asleep. (also new avatar ftw)
lol Chuck greene? rofl
i wonder what peanuts doing while there doing all this game stuff?
What the heck are smelling salts?
You don’t know?
YOU DON’T KNOW?!
Strange; neither do I D:
Hey, nice avvy. Biker Mice from Mars?
(Don’t look at me that way. There really was a TV show called like that!)
It was a comic book first. One of the more successful covers from the turtle bubble. Adolescent Radioactive Black-belt Hamsters and Pre-teen Dirty-gene Kung-fu Kangaroos didn’t do so well.
(I Am Not Making These Up)
That’s the best NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer I’ve seen since the FrothyMugsOfWater TCG
(surgeon general warning: looking these up in TVTropes.org can cost you anywhere between 20 and 2000 minutes of your life)
Since I’m quoting Anna Russell, of course you get a Quality NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer!
Absolutely =D After Batman and Animaniacs, it was the best show of the 90s to me, and it was by far my favorite ^_^
Try to explain it to one of the modern kids; they’ll probably laugh at you. Especially with a villain called Limburger Cheese.
That is all.
It’s a popular remedy when someone pass out.
There are salts with very strong smell and high content of ammonia
that can even wake up deads.
That’s why I suggested using a skunk instead.
Once your nose gets used to chemical smells, ammonia it’s nothing compared to skunk smell.
I kinda like skunk, in small doses.
The only smell that i think you can compare with a skun it’s Ammonium hydroxide in force and in smell the magnesian mixture.
Mixed together = Skunk
So you like skunks?
Oh, he grew this sudden obsession with skunks a while back
I’ve never met a wild skunk closer than ten or so feet, and I was very careful not to scare it. Let it go on its goofy business digging through the underbrush until it was safely out of sight of our campsite and I could let myself move again.
New character time? I mean the house isn’t abandoned . . . Right?
Well, it’s abandoned of spirtual activity at the least.
…And as Marvin walks back to his room through the hallway, he sees two twin cats in the distance:
“Come play with us, Marve! Forever, and ever, and ever!”
And Marvin replys, ” Who the heck is Marve?”
Uhg, now my mind is going crazy over all the things that might happen in the next strip because I JUST got back from watching Paranormal Activity 2. =/
that movie was… meh.
Werr, how was it?
Some parts boring, some parts scary.
All parts boring, no parts scary
Denied. Downside of getting energy from grinding gears, you’ll be awake a lot longer than most cats.
hey! i can swear i commented but i can’t find it
prob. got deleted -_-
ya it probably did, that sucks
I like Max in the 3rd panel.
hehe just classic grapes asleep ^^ why im not wondering .___. ?
I just had an inadvertent opportunity to watch one of my cats reaction to Vaporub. Oh my god, that must smell like the devil himself to a cat. I hate to think how a pet would react to smelling salts.
Great! Now you’ve made me curious!
Maybe he’l faint! …again…
The only thing cuter than King… is King in a cowboy hat
Nom nom nom nom!
Yelling King is cuter :3
What about happy King? :3
(Below is accident)
I like your “happy king” gravatar
Happy King is wonderful.
What about happy King? :3
It is an accident that he is happy. It shall be fixed temporarily… E|:3
Hey, why would you want to upset King? His lives bad enough already.
Have King and Zach met? They could probably weaponize their combined cuteness.
Oh snap… very subtle, Rick. I almost didn’t spot that rickroll. :b
Hey, I can’t view your site properly within Opera, I actually hope you look into fixing this.
