Oh Sasha!! ^^
If you look at Panel 2, if you separate the face from the whole background, you can see Sasha’s actually screaming with joy.
Dunno. The bared teeth and inclined brow kind of ruin the “joy” effect
The expression looks more like “schooling Bino again”.
No, it looks more like a “YEAH!!!!” face, no?
I’d agree with ya on that Frank… course she still looks great. XD
*insert double facepalm here*
Angry Sasha is cute :3
Sasha gets legitimately mad? Who knew.
Looks like, especially when the “paid” was mentioned…
This reminds me of EddCo.
At risk of sounding blisfully ignorant, Edd who?
I think it’s a TV show reference. Ed, Edd, and Eddy.
Ironically, there’s a real Eddco. They make forklifts and stuff.
Really? That’s an ironical outcome…
…and yes, I was talking about Ed, Edd, and Eddy.
*gives an orange soda to the ferret*
We’re going UP!! =D
wait, ai want a orange soda D: !!!!
give meh one X< !!!!!1
Dook dook dook DOOK dook.
I’d say that’s more of a “Wut?” expression in the last panel not an angry one… she should be, but we’re talkin aboot Sasha her for Pete’s sake. XD
Please don’t bring Pete into this. Then it’ll definitly end badly.
Maybe not, maybe he could get behind this and lend some magic.
Ummm… okay gonna quote Rock now: “Okay, bad choice of words.” This “for Pete’s sake” is the “for God’s sake” so don’ worry aboot *Random guy taps on back* (RG: Don’t ruin other peoples jokes pal. G: … Ummm…)
Okay wierd then I’ll just say that let’s hope Pete won’t return just yet… (Who WAS that guy anyway? O_o”)
How did she get a typo in her speech? (cibble)
oh wait, I’m an idiot – its the brand name XD
I was gonna say “Read the Alt-Text,” but apparently, you just did…
Alt-Text: Canine Cibble: Why should K’s get to have all the fun?
True. If C gets to be replaced by K all the time, why not the other way around?
There’s kertainly no way that kould go wrong.
You should use “K” only when you have:
…but some companies do it because it “feels” right to have all “K’s.” Also, technically, “K” is more appealing than “C” since it is used less…
Maybe this company was started by someone named Sybill, who got tired of being civil
Sort of like… MORTAL KOMBAT!!!!
That’s Cind of Krazy.
I cnow, right? This konfusion sure spikes things up.
Well… Kuriosity Cills the Kat.
Fatality… Flawless Viktory.
Rokcet Cnight boy?
Because that would make it Canine Sibble
You mean “Kute”!
So Sasha no smiley faic after knowing to get paid? E|:/
That comes to show you that Sasha is no greedy pooch!
Only she can carry the one ring!!
*Gasp!* You mean the forbidden ring which has been banned among the realms? Or the one that got thrown in the volcano?
That’s the one!
numer 1 or 2!?! ?
The forbidden number 69! They fused the 1 and 2 together in an underground passage of Area 51.1 and created the ultimate weapon…*radio signal cuts off*
ai dun get the reference…
It won’t do her any good to wear the ring because she sure hasn’t forsaken love. But she’s as empty-headed as a nixie so she’s probably safe from Alberich’s curse.
It’s too much of a shock for her. Give her some time to process it. Remember this is Sasha we’re talking about.
She’s not, I don’t think, that’s the point.
money makes the world go round
please forgive me…Buzz Killington is my uncle
really? can you get me an autograph?
Conservation of angular momentum and kinetic energy makes the world go round.
that helps too lol
No one gets paid.
and retires with his winnings and builds a mansion on a mountain. When people ask, “who does that big house up there belong to?” the answer is always “No one”
It worked for Odysseus.
I think in his case, it was “nohbody”
It was in Attic Greek, so it’s up to the translator.
But the *traditional* translation is “No Man”.
Sasha is very cute in this one and I’ve always wondered if Pets get paid for there work like do Fido and the rest of the K-9 unit get paid? (I would assume they don’t)
Just throw them a Milk Bone and you’re good, dogs ain’t picky.
They get paid in Kibbles n’ Bits and doggy chew toys…or extra allowance for doing such a good job helping others…
You mean Cibble ‘n Bits…
Someone’s gotta pay for those cool shades they wear…
i thought those were standard issue…
Not Fido’s. He already had his…….I think.
Good question. They must though, how else can they get ice cream and white chocolate?
…. stunt cereal lololol
then we’ll realize that she’s allergic to all cereals and have to use Computer Graphics lololol
Don’t we all? E|;D
Okay, technically that’s true because we’re reading this comic on a computer screen, but it’s not what you traditionally call “Computer Graphics”
Canine Cibble can’t be beat.
It makes each meal a special treat.
Obscure 1960s animated Disney film reference. X3
101 Dalmatians is obscure?
Of course not…but the reference was. ;D
AH! Now it makes sense. To be honest I thought of that movie with this strip (as did a lot of floks likely because of the joke about switching Ks and Cs)
That particular scene is (at least within the film)
So-o-o-o-o, do what all the smart dogs do
And you’ll feel great the whole day through.
You can be a champion too
If you eat Canine Cibble!
I’ve always thought that commercial was weird (and insanely catchy). I mean, it’s aimed at the dogs, whom we’ve established can speak English and understand humans, but only because the viewer is seeing the world from their perspective. It just makes no sense for people to advertise to them in the 101 Dalmations world construct.
Of course, I have a habit of over-thinking things like this to the point that I break down my own suspension of disbelief. Maybe I should just shut up and sing the jingle .
The point of advertising is to get people to remember the name.
Making sense isn’t even in the short list.
Kanine Krunchies was the actual commercial product, and also featured in the sequel done 50 years later by money hungry idiots at the secondary animation studios in Tokyo/Brazil/Seoul/whichever…… but I get how people are transposing… just thought I’d make sure no one thought the product was stolen from Disney. (Steal from Disney? Gasp, unheard of!)
As an extra point: WTF is in Canine Cibble that ISN’T in other dog food that Sasha is allergic to it?!
But, does it make it’s own gravy?
And more importantly come in it’s own bowl?
And does that bowl come with a spoon?
I guess…..but it’s still not the same.
Hooray for “collective groan” effects!
But I haven’t even made a pun about how “Rock rolls” yet.
Why? Is he a stranger to love?
He seems to be motivated by other things, that’s for sure.
Note to Rock: What they don’t know won’t hurt them.
“they” being the audience, or the actors?
In the case of commercials, more likely both. But I was refering to Sasha not knowing she was getting paid.
Oh, Rock, where are your ethics?
Rock: That’s in Kent isn’t it?
In Kent? Nah, it’s probably a county to itself!
It’s a country undiscovered for Rock, that’s for sure.
Is Canine Cibble considered pet food or cereal?
Is cereal considered food?
I consider it food… I mean, it satisfies my hunger.
Isn’t that Snickers?
Hungry?… Why wait?
It’s not just food, it’s biblical.
Is this the age-old discusion of the differance between “cereal”, “corn” and “grain”?
Cereal and grain are pretty much synonymous.
Corn, well, I’m not getting into that maize.
I c wat u did thar.
(Begins to clap slowly)
*begins to clap w/ rocket*
Well it’s edible… I think.
Technically Purina did used to make both
Purina Dog Cereal? 0_o
Actually they made Chex and Cookie Crisp
Cookie crisp has got to be the dankest cereal ever!
iz dat good… or bad >.> ?
I keep wondering how much savant there is in Sasha’s idiot savant role. *giggles*
I wonder how much the idiot part is protective coloring.
LoL, Pince-Nez sunglasses. I think Sasha is my favorite character.
So, anyway, isn’t Rock rich enough that he’s got no reason to shortchange the talent.
Except maybe he thinks that’s in character for a director?
Or have the other ferrets put him on a tight budget?
Blame it on the orange soda!
Or maybe Rock’s just reflexively unethical.
That makes him the greediest XD
Well, I think Duke and Pit need to step it up
I want more Lana.
I think this is my favorite…
My question is… how is “Canine Cibble” gonna compete with the instant kibble that comes with it’s own styrofoam bowl!?
Is it sad that I wonder this too?
So, what? Is she getting paid?
I would take the “Bad choice of words” after-effect as a no. Well… until he said that.
Like I said, Capitalism!
And I’m proud of it!
Cibble, wtf? Anyway, I wonder what will happen next?
“Whats That For” is wtf, right? =)
Uh, not really……
But lets “Ceep” it that way, yeah?
At least before it seeps out!
This is the First Strip I think that I have NEVER seen Sasha smile in…END OF THE WORLD!!!!!
Wow such a simple yet so hard to read sentence. Now THIS is the real end. XD
ROFL! XD NYAHAHAHAHA! *Catches breath* That’s why Ah lub Sasha, nya! ~^w^~
She’s so siwwy tha it iz adowibul, purrrz! ~^.^~
Take it easy now man. If you pass out now what’s gonna be with ya in the rest of the arc?
Ahm sowwy, nya! ;p Iz juz tha Sasha iz really B-ing her self, nya! ~^w^~ She’s so adowibul, nya! X3
Yeah she’s just great. X3
But keep it up there will be more… I bet… or hope.
der better be maor |:o
cuz if there isn’t ai might crai
O’course there will B! O.o
We demand IT, nya! >.<
Shush, nya! >:3
This is Rick, he wouldn’t let us down! *nod-nods*
My god, thought I’d blow something trying to translate that.
Want me as a transalator? Its cheap. 1 cookie for every sentence.
Yeah, it doesn’t bother me… Its actually kind of fun… To read and speak.
Silly Sasha. If you’re allergic to the cibble, of course it’d come up.
Okay that got nasty… but meh it’ll do. :p
Smallfoot wins an internet.
oh ai get it X3
that took meh ah few seconds though XD
BTW in most shows and commercials they don’ use real food cuz it may go bad by the time they get to shoot the real stuff, but I’m not sure what’s the stuff they really eat then in the first place. XD
Is it just me or is Sasha’s face bigger than normal in the second panel? O_o”
Funny that I get that “Why am I paying you?” stuff a LOT from my bro… MAN it’s annoying. XP
I like how they’re all so innocent and don’t want to lie.
With a few exceptions, of course.
Sasha is quite prepared to mislead, when it’s funny… like in the piano scene.
Wonder what her next song is going to be called…
Rick is getting very good with his facial expressions.
They could have just tied a milk bone on a stick to her head for payment.l.
why do directors only want a lovely face instead of a smart brain?
you can’t SEE a smart brain
i just pictured that guy who gets a piece of his brain eaten in one of the hannabal lecter films, advertising some cereal…
Yeh, why don’t we get more zombie cheesecake?
Zombie Cheesecake? Where? Where!?
There are some things man was not meant to know.
Well, I think Rock is the greediest of all the 6 XD
And, you know all good actors never really “read” the script…
*awards one internet*
She figures out Bino re-gifted her but she didn’t make sure she was getting paid?
lol, this was my favorite part.
So is it pronounced “sibble” or “qibble”?
If it alliterates with “canine” it’s a hard “c”.
I love alliteration.
Now, in reality, the person at fault is Rock for overestimating Sasha’s intelligence (be it actual or perceived) and wisdom (same).
I have another question, but first I should ask: Is it just “canine cibble” (a general term but with a different spelling for some reason) or is it “Canine Cibble” (a certain brand or product line in a brand)?
Look at the board behind her.
Ah. Thanks. *clueless as usual*
First thing I thought when I saw this strip was OMG VITAMEATAVEGAMIN
See this is why you should read the entire contract and make sure you get your cash before you film the commercial.
Heh second panel Sasha with her words could be used if she had just thrown up too. “Why’d you just do that?” “I didn’t think it’d come up!”
i’m trying to think whether or not it would be easy or hard with Daisy instead of Sasha o.o
I dunno…maybe about the same?
It would be easier if Daisy knew more than 1 sentence. You can actually keep a conversation with Sasha… sort of.
i’m picturing it like this: “Hi I’m Daisy” *eats cereal* end commercial lol
… and the World’s Shortest Commercial Award goes to… *tears envelope and reads card*… Canine Cibble, directed by Rock, Starring Daisy!
Lol, I can imagine this commercial and the award thing in my TV. It would be halarious if it really happen (In the comic, of course!)
It’d be easier if they “hired” Daisy.
By the way, (not meaning to go off topic but) isn’t Peanut starting to look a bit scruffy?
So’s Sasha here but I think that’s just a further evolution of Rick’s drawing style.
Acting is lying, Sasha. I’ll bet she didn’t think of that either.
Rock looks amazingly like Spielberg to me in Panel 3. ; )
