This is just like the pringles!
Alt-Text: Mrs. Sandwich can have an ATTITUDE when she wants to.
We have instant pringles?
I thought pringles were a little more instantaneous that this… no boiling water needed. ^^
Actually, I was trying to make an argument about Pringles Snack Stacks and the original packaging for Pringles (the long and small tubes) and how the former is more advantageous than the latter.
For a little bit greater nominal fee, of course…
The original Pringles cans are more awesome because you can use them to build long range WiFi antennas.
aaaannnnddd u’ve done this
But with enough time, money, and supplies, who wouldn’t?
…pringles…”90 PRINGLES INSIDE!” (observe the small print) “on average!”
those thieving buggers lol
It’s similar with mini jaffa cakes. You can get a pack of them, and they contain on average six, but I sometimes get packets of 7 instead. 5 is actually rarer.
Which means that someone had 181 pringles in his can, and another one had one taken away from his stomach by the can itself.
Brings backs memories when I was a kid shopping for food with my mom
lol at winy Peanut. And good for Mrs. Sandwich not giving it to it
I mean whiny Peanut. (spelling fail)
It to it?
Mommy! That person called me an “it”!
perfect avatar XD
This wouldn’t be a rant against those cups of noodles, would it?
Of course not, everyone loves ramen cups!
I think the loose ones w/out Styrofoam are better…
Well it was inspired by ramen conversations I had today
Were Chow|Mein and EasyMacs included in the conversation, by any chance?
Certainly not; I can’t have cow milk so Easy Mac is not on the table for discussion.
Some things you have to make from scratch. And if you have to make it from scratch, might as well make fettuccine alfredo.
Fettuccine alfredo is certainly more delicious than Easy Mac. x3
Actually, I think they did make fettuccine alfredo ready-to-cook as well…just add water.
Allergy? or was Uncle Reuben’s cow looking?
You are missing the point! I have to make it from scratch so I can use goat and sheep milk instead. As far as I know, neither of those come instant in anything.
Also, I now have a taste for homemade alfredo so I don’t think I could be tempted by any instant version of it.
Things are funnier when you miss the point
At least you get to have homemade food. I live off pizza and tacos
And soda and sandwiches! Don’t forget about them too! And add Hot Pockets™ to the list, too.
Yo-Quick, instant goat-milk yogurt, by Mt Capra.
Hot pockets™ are the greatest!
BTW, Yo-Quick is real.
wut yo-quick ?
Instant goat-milk yoghurt.
that saoooowwwnnnnddddsss interesting ?
acutally from personal experience while getting goat or sheep milk in stuff is really unlikely, you’d be surpised how much stuff doesn’t really need cow milk. Though I admit I ussually never even bother to check becasue I just know they’ll have milk or some byproduct. making everything fresh is probably safer, but I love me some prosessed food.
Behold, the power of Mead.
*grin* I ate mutton last night… now I need to find some mead!
I want instant kibble!
I want instant bacon. Instant fat-free low-salt bacon that still tastes awesome.
ai want artificial instant kibble w/ artificial bacon bits and artificial turkey bit did ai mention it wus artificial X3?
Steak is where it’s at!
*sigh* you are the cancer.
What if its Steak WITH Bacon Bits on it?
How about bacon cheeseburger pizza?
all right, I /have/ to ask. Where’d you get that icon? .3.
NOT INSTANT ENOUGH!!! [....]
Next they’ll be saying it’s even more instant than “instant” because you don’t have to remove the little bowl cover!
….the cover melts away when you pour hot water!!!!! BRILLIANT!!
Scary perhaps, but such a thing actually exists (thought they don’t use it to package food)
2:33 to 3:00
I knew Cheetos where cheese flavored packing material!!!
The video never says they’re Cheetos, they could be…uh… Cheez Doodles!
(Why do I have a sudden urge to buy Cheetos and put them under the faucet?)
The video just hangs forever for me.
The next step of “instant”
Now it comes ready and hot.
Always keep hot, don’t ask.
I think he was referring to the military type instant ramen where you just pull a cord, wait 2 minutes and eat.
Actually, they do exist…I liked the instant rice with chicken, though…
Sounds like you want Kibble, Ready to Eat (KRE). Just open the package and crush the vial to boil the water, creating the gravy!
actually, I like this idea better
Don’t they use a pull-cord now? (see hypergenesis’ comment above?)
I haven’t experienced an MRE in several years, so they probably do!
No, MREs are still the same, unless they just show everyone water one. Haven’t seen one with a pull-cord. mmmmmm…
I seen a travel coffee/cocoa where you peel the bottom off and then push this bubble to break the water and lime packs and that boils the water in the cup. heating up the liquid you drink… very nice but not my cup of tea.
For some reason Peanut looks older to me here.
Awww, I remember when i was a child and i went to the supermarket with my mom, and asked her for buying me”x” or “y” thing.
Nice touch with the “Fill to the line”.
I remember when my dad used to take me, but when I asked for stuff he told me to “shut up”
Well that’s not nice.
OOOOO! Mommy! Mommy! Can I buy this?? Can I, can I, please?
You… want to buy… Inu?
Where are you going to keep him?
I went to the store with my mom today, and just to bug her i started beggin for everything.
Its funny how parents can still say ‘no’ so much so many years later.
Heh. Guess it’s an acquired reflex when you’re a parent
Is it just me, or does Peanut’s tag seems a little smaller or shorter than usual, in panel 3…
Perspec… It shrunk in the w… Ah! I give up!
I think it is perspective, ’cause Peanut IS leaning back.
…..as it seems…..
Dude, I’d rather go for the mutton than the kibble… mmmm, meat….
But it come with a bowl T~T meany…
Peanut’s a dog, like there is any chance he’s not going to eat whatever she buys him anyway?
He’ll eat it, she doesn’t want to pay extra for packaging when buying a sack of kibble will do.
Instant kibble, now with more instant?
And peanut looks cute in panel 0.
Panel 0, of course.
The one where Peanut is racing through the store, looking for the instant kibble.
The panel right before “Mom, can we get the instant kibble?”.
Panel -1 has them getting out of the car.
Panel -5 explains why Grape didn’t come along. (She’s asleep.)
Panel -6,095.235 is an episode of Housepets Babies!
In panel 2 + i, Peanut convinces Ms Sandwich to buy one bowl of instant kibble. (His tail is going at ninety wags per minute in panel 3 + i!)
I now want to see a strip with the Housepets! characters as kittens and puppies. Thank you.
Puppies: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/05/14/keeps-on-giving/ and http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/06/01/not-good-with-children/
Thou art served
How did you do multi links without getting modded?
It did get modded. Our mods are just that fast!
Index of 0.
That is how capitalism works, Peanut! Now if you fine people excuse me, I will go to the store and but some instant soup.
(I am 99% capitalist, Mexican capitalist)
Carlos Slim btw?
It is hard to believe that the most richest man in the world is a Mexican, every time I think about it makes me laugh a little bit.
Why? U Mad?
“On March 29, 2007, Slim surpassed Warren Buffett as the world’s second richest person with an estimated net worth of US$53.1 billion compared with Buffett’s US$52.4 billion.”
Hahaha, nah. not mad.
It is just funny because Mexico is going down hard in many ways.
That is how capitalism works, Peanut! Now if you fine people excuse me, I will go to the store and buy* some instant soup.
* represents the correction of the mistake I did
ah ok, just waiting for you to do so…
In response to panel 3.
I forgot who said this to me but someone told me when you buy bottled water you’re basically paying for the plastic rather than the filtered water.
But, but, it’s got it’s own bulk packaging and everything! See, you save a dollar extra if you buy more! See?
Wow, our avatars went so well with this. Heh.
Oh, I see what you did there.
It was not on purpose, it just happened to work.
Thank God for the FoodNetwork channel lol!!!
Yes, it’s so true! I wonder if they’ll make a show for pet food. Or would that be Animal Planet?
i want mutton and flaggons of mead D:
Bu-but! But I like mutton and flagons of meade!
seriously peanut’s expressions in this comic & the previous have been some of the best I’ve ever seen
really can tell rick is improving
You do the best expressions.
Instant anything is a cheap, imitation of the actual thing.
Why have instant noodles when you can actually eat the normal noodles? DOES NOT COMPUTE FOR ME
lol peanut has to live in the dark ages…. without a flashlight…
Cue instant flashlight!
Limited time offer: comes with a crazy old man that speaks only in Limercks!
I have an instant computer! 8D (pours water on it)
DANG IT! >:c
no no no see…your supposed to pour it on your router for INSTANT connection…
You to had me cracking up over here…
Did you try the monitor too?
Oh good grief! You guys got it wrong! Your supposed to use Steam instead!
Mine is water cooled… lol
being a dog, wouldn’t mutton sound delicious? let me check….
yep, it is sheep meat,
that also raises the question of how they get meat in this world O_o, there is some nightmare fuel for ya
with that in mind, i guss we need to see how rick portrays sheep…
I’m like that when i’m seeing something that’s just 1% different, but 3 times more expensive
Hm, I guess we know which side of the family Grape got HER attitude…
“Moooom! They have instant tuna, now!”
“Uh, how is it different from canned tuna?”
It comes with a little package of crackers and squeeze-packs of relish and mayo.
OMG, you’ve seen ‘em too? Its just like regular tuna, but with all the bonus crap and sometimes a mint!
Seen ‘em? I’ve bought ‘em for our kids.
Oh I’ll stay in the dark ages for mutton and mead.
peanut has the knowhow somehow lol XD
I’m surprised Peanut isn’t jumping all over the mutton idea >_>
likely cuz he’s been eating it daily, …for years.
The sandwich family eats mutton and mead?! I wanna go to their house!
…especially in an MLT–mutton, lettuce and tomato–when the mutton is nice and juicy…
How many of us HAVE paid extra for a styrofoam bowl of dog food? I know I have.
I had one of those ‘minute meals’ with beef tips, gravy and mashed potatoes. I’m reasonably sure that counts as dog food in a styrofoam bowl.
Well Muka you already wear a dog’s collar so….
This sounds like just about every mother I can think of at some point in their life. Or every father.
fer sum reson peanuts face… it looks… off
Uh… because we’ve never seen him whine like that before?
hay frank were do u get ur avvies ?
I make ‘em!
Soon, I’ll have a complete little story with this little guy on my (little?) blog.
Why? Do you want one?
srry no (srry if ai made u think ai did
but i was just wonder cuz well ai dunno they seem interesting
Interesting you say?
I too was wonder-…
Wait, never mind, don’t get him started.
you can’t go wrong with a mouse/rat character
Now I want to see Spo again.
I wanna see King and Spo together.
The gravy is the key point that Mrs Sandwich is missing. Peanut clearly failed his Diplomacy check or he would have brought this point up!
“I won’t eat any cereal that doesn’t turn the milk purple”
Calvin and Hobbes references, gotta love ‘em.
*chuckles* Peanut probably saw a really good commercial.
Commercials make everything look better.
Then you go to the store/restaraunt, get it, and wonder “What the *%#@ is this?”
I’ve actually gotten hamburgers that look like the ones in the photo
That is a miracle. They never have the juicy patty or crisp lettuce for me!
Hey, I never said how often I got them
Once a year?
I’m surprised, every other place requires leashes, but this store doesn’t? I’m guessing this store is close or in Babylon Gardens.
I got bored and to make up for it I made this!
I leave this open for all.
Hmm…..maybe they take it off when no one is around? No idea.
If this was the equivalent of ramen, I would buy it anyway…
But ramen is cheap. There’s a huge difference here, it also doesn’t make gravy.
Haven’t you checked the bottom of the cup? “gravy sold separately”
Kibble makes it’s own gravy though!
Should I be worried if I tend to have the same thoughts while buying stuff like that? (Instand goodies not dog food. :p) XD
BTW is it just me or does Peanut look a bit off in the first panel? No prob with it I’m just not sure.
Is it just me, or does his fur seem a bit…ungroomed?
I’ll go with everyone elses guess and say winter coat. The fuller coat tends to be a bit harder to groom, but it is possible.
Puppy Peanut calling to mom to buy him something, he looks so adorable! |3
…Makes its own gravy!
Just fill to the line!
This is like the noodle bowls I buy from the Japanese convenience store ^^;
How does kibble work?
Oddly enough, this represents a certain political conflict that’s going on today. Can’t get anymore deeper than that, it’s against the rules.
The bit about styrofoam or the bit about progress?
Styrofoam is a political issue?
believe it or not, yes
Styrofoam is deeply political.
I’m guessing it’s a social issue?
I wonder if all the pets have this problem……
haven’t seen peanut in so long that i feel like somethings different.
ahh, yes. just like a kid asking for the latest cereal fad. X3
Do you, per chance, visit the forums any?
I don’t really understand the “to make the gravy” part. Is it normal to serve kibble with gravy in this world?

But MOMMMM…. What about the toy!? The TOYYYYYY!!
Mom: “You’ve got enough toy’s dear. What about that rawhide bone of yours?”
But… it’s …. sorta… chewed up… (walks away pouting)
If you would believe it, one of my doctors is named Dr. Sandwich. He works with another doctor named Dr. Katz, and another doctor named Dr. Laura Bush. I find all of their names interesting. XD
this have to be of all times i see Peanut So very cartoonish X3
I don’t know if I’d like mutton or mead, but I’d be willing to try it!
