    alt text: but then I’ll insist that we have cake and then we have cake anyway

    • Aldon

      talking about humble….CAKE!!! XD

      • Mika

        Is the cake real this time?

    • FuRrY321

      Neat. So apparently the alt-text works on a Blackberry, but the screen is so small (on my dad’s Curve, at least) that the pop-up obscures most of the comic! xD

  2. Dissension

    Peanut wins for having an awesome DS.

    • Ichiinu

      Motion seconded.

      • FinalSilence

        Wonder if he wants the 3DS coming out in 4 monthes.

        • FuRrY321

          I know I sure do, but it’s too bad I probably won’t be able to afford it (or any of its launch titles, if I do get it) when it comes out. But when I can get it, I’ll probably get like at least 10 games to start out with xD

          Now, for something more on-topic:
          Boy, does Grape dream big! I just hope she isn’t disappointed. Even though I don’t recall hearing that quote before, I understand what Peanut means by “Don’t meet your heroes”. They may not be as larger-than-life as you think.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            onleh 1 ting i hate bout videogames today…
            …. once u buy dem they’re out of date -_-”

      • Frank

        For some reason, I find your avatar really creepy.

        Also, Motion Thirded

        • jozaud

          looks like it’s from Lackadaisy (with a silly santa hat edited in). Good comic. extremely well drawn. http://www.lackadaisycats.com/index.php

          and yes, that character is a creep. a badass, but a creep.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            but it takes laike 3 months fer 3 pages TT-TT

          • Argent Stonecutter

            It’s still moving faster than some webcomics. “Girl vs Pig” is averaging less than one update a year.

      • Naylorfan90

        I just have to say, that your avatar is total win. =D

    • FerreTrip

      Motion forthed.

      • FerreTrip

        *fourthed

        • Chiry

          No, forth does not have the u.
          English sucks eggs.
          Four, forty, forth, bleh.

          • Trefoiler

            Actually, ‘Forth’ is a synonym to ‘onward’, ‘forward’, ‘out’, and so forth.

            Four and fourth are found in numerical use; the spelling does not change with form.

            Incidentally, the number itself is remarkably flexible:
            b4 2day i was #4 4 4 years! rly h8ed dat #3 guy. wut a jerk. 8 up all the atentiun

            Huh. So is its first multiple, I guess. BUT, you’re right- English influences us to expect weird stuff like this all over the place. It can be ridiculous. Can definitely suck an egg or three.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Forth a programming language is. Forth favored by jedi masters is, yoda in reverse polish speak it makes. The forth a dark side and a light side it has, the galaxies bind together it does.

          • Trefoiler

            Thylvethter- you mutht feel the forth, and onthe you do, you will find that you can never forget the forth. The forth, you thee, it is alwayth prethent, everywhere, in all things living and dead. The forth will not, indeed cannot abandon you, nor you it.

            Devote all of yourthelf to the forth, and it will guide you not where you want to go, or where otherth want you to go, but where you need to go. Where you mutht go.

    Alt-Text: But I’ll insist that we have cake and then we have cake anyways

    Where have I heard this before?

    • AvanWolf

      I ninja’d yours XD (and you missed the “then”)

    • Rick Griffin

      Okay the moment this continues being a contest I am going to scrub everyone who posts the alt-text

      • Snow

        aww but i cant see it on my WII :p

        • dalonewolf25

          Well, here’s what we can do: we can all decide on someone posting up the alt-text for us at all times. We first give him a time limit of 30 minutes to post up the alt-text. If, for some reason, he’s not able to post it within the first 30 minutes of the comic being released, then anyone can post the alt-text. That way, we destroy the possibility of having a contest for 1st post with the alt-text. Simple as that. Any volunteers that are willing to do this?

          • gaboris

            Heh bit too much of a show for somethin like this I’d say. There’s no real need to post the alt-text so bad there has to be someone to “do the job”. XD

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            ai second dalonewolf’s idea
            laike, imma not volinteering but just saying it’s ah good idea ^~^

      • HonorèDerazey

        I know this is YOUR website Rick, but isn’t that a bit too harsh? Everyone seems to have matured a little bit more since the “first” thingy everyone did. =/

        • Buckdida

          People would probably still be doing the “first” thing if we didn’t do something about it.

          You know this to be sadly true, admit it. :P

          How about this. You can post the alt-text if you ALSO actually have a real comment to go along with it, and it has to be an actual comment, not a “think of something so that I can post first” comment. Otherwise, we nuke it like we’re gonna anyway!

          Fair enough, right? It’s not like it’s that bad to have the alt-text a little ways down. No need to race, everyone.

          • gaboris

            Yeah I think that would be the most logical idea I’d say. Postin the alt-text all by itself has no point if ya ask me, but I’m not a big commenting guru so I can’t understand these things, but I still think this. :)

          • dalonewolf25

            This sounds logical enough. Then we shall do it! After all, if I’m not mistaken, this is how it used to be done before…

        • Frank

          You can’t predict what newcomers will be like

      • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

        *claps at Rick for finally putting his pants on regarding this issue*

        • Rocket Knight boy

          BTW aperson who comments, i replied to your question on mondays comic, but just incase you missed it sorry i don’t have steam

  4. AvanWolf

    Love the expressions in panel 4 btw XD

  5. dalonewolf25

    RICK! TYPO FAIL ON FIRST PANEL!!!

    • AvanWolf

      Yeah, the “?” after life

      • FunkyChicken

        I’d say it’s missing an “it’s”. Different ways of reading the panel, I guess.

        • AvanWolf

          It has an “it’s” at the beginning… where do you mean?

    • Rick Griffin

      Where?

      • AvanWolf

        “Because my life? is gonna be complete”

        • Rick Griffin

          I don’t see the typo, seeing as that’s exactly what I meant to write

          • AvanWolf

            Oh, so the “?” is for the verbal inflection?

          • dalonewolf25

            Oh, whoops, my bad then…

          • Rick Griffin

            Why, yes, exactly like every other time I put a ? in there for that reason

          • XAV TAY TOR TOT

            Rick, I have reasons to believe AND evidence to support the fact that you did not WRITE anything, you typed it :P

            But just so you know, I agree, I can read the strip just fine. I think Grape is a little bit too into Pridelands related things.

          • Dissension

            I feel like this has to be explained every time it shows up?

          • HonorèDerazey

            @Rick Griffin

            Wait, wait, wait. I thought verbal inflections were only used in Semantic languages… or am I just thinking of something else.

          • Clairvoyant Legacy

            Now now Rick. It’s not safe to use sarcasm in such high levels.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I don’t recall seeing you do that before, but I’ll take your word for it… but this time at least it makes the first panel really confusing and breaks up the flow of Grape’s speech bubble. I think this innovative new typographical convention is a mistake.

          • WingedWolfGirl

            Hey XAV TAY TOR TOT, can you hear me?
            If you can, have your ears checked; I didn’t say anything. …I typed it.

          • Frank

            @Argent
            “Hey there Mister Wolf. I’m here to pickup Peanut?”
            correct reply if it were a question instead of just an inflection:
            “yes”
            answer given
            “Come in!”

            @Honorè: “Semantic” is just a fancy way to say “the meaning of a word”. All languages have semantics, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to use them

          • Argent Stonecutter

            That’s at the end of the sentence, not interstitial, and answering a question indirectly is not at all unusual. For example:

            Me: Do you have the time?
            You: Yes.

            No, no, you don’t do that, do you? Oh, I do sometimes, as a joke, but most of the time it’s like this…

            You: Do you have the time?
            Me: Quarter past one.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Or, other ways this kind of question can sneak in…

            You: We better get going?
            Me: I haven’t finished my beer yet.

            You: We’re leaving now?
            Me: I’ll get my keys.

            (of course you should say “oh no, I’m driving” because of the beer in the previous example)

          • Trefoiler

            And that’s how they became the Brady Bunch!

  6. IceKitsune

    I love Peanuts look in the last panel its great. And lol at Grape hero worshiping

    • gaboris

      Yeah they look like if they’ve switched personalities or somethin. X)

      • Naylorfan90

        That’s exactly what I was thinking! =O

        • Trefoiler

          My thought as well. ^_^

  7. ReCreate

    Peanut looks a little feminine in the last panel. O.o I dont know if thats just me though.

    • ZV

      Eh, not seeing it. Hmmm

    • Pokeblue

      Hm…I think it’s the snout, it looks a tad shorter than usual from that angle. I could be wrong though.

      • AvanWolf

        Maybe he meant the eyes? Just my guess.
        Anyways, I don’t see it either.

        • Silent Kitsune

          It looks like a eye and mouth combination to me…

      • dalonewolf25

        It’s the philtrum; it looks like Sabrina’s look in the past…

        • dalonewolf25
          • gaboris

            Good find man, at first I thought it’s cuz they’re like if they’ve switched personalities or somethin, but he does look somewhat like Sabrina there. :D

        • Pokeblue

          I see what you mean. I certainly do see the general closeness in appearance. Part of me still feels unsure though.

          In any case, I thank you for providing a link to which one, I was just about to scurry through every strip Sabrina was in to see what you mean.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Philtrum is one of my secret words.

          • dalonewolf25

            …and you wouldn’t believe how hard it was to find it…I always thought it was the cleft…silly me and my mediocre knowledge of English…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Cleft would work.

          • Frank

            My 6th grade English teacher would always joke that the philtrum is the only part of the body that doesn’t have a name. The word is that rare.

  8. ZV

    this strip is adorable I just can’t @ how awesome it is

  9. dalonewolf25

    I believe these are the thoughts of every fan of every famous writer…

    • Chip Uni

      Except that most fans would imagine Miss Auburn sitting on the once and future throne of the Pridelands, gazing into the cracked Mirror of Truth, searching for the One Chosen to fulfill the prophecy and restore the Pridelands to its glory!

      • dalonewolf25

        No, I’m pretty sure she’s just hoping spring eternal…

  10. Loki Impisi

    Lol, Peanut lost a life in the last panel.

    • XAV TAY TOR TOT

      oh hey he did. how ’bout that.

    • Rocket Knight boy

      so THAT’S what that was!

  11. XAV TAY TOR TOT

    Dood. cake. If it’s a lie im sueing!

    • Snow

      Glados will prevent you with NeroToxicn

      • Ichiinu

        But then Xav will triumph. Because Nero Toxicn simply causes you to burn down Rome.
        If she released NEURO Toxin, however, then it would be a completely different story

    • Argent Stonecutter

      How can you eat your cake, if there is no spoon?

  12. rtlstien

    Oh no… Peanut is foreshadowing when Grape meets the author. She’s probably going to be very disappointed from the encounter.
    Peanut as a secret Santa? I wonder who he’ll get this time?

    • dalonewolf25

      Place your bets on yet another wager (in cookies, please):

      I place 5 cookies that it will be Bino.

      • HonorèDerazey

        No. This is the INTERNET! We must wager Internetz thereof!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I ran out of internets!

          • Trefoiler

            Oh, cool! I beat it, too!

            The end boss is hard! Am I right?

      • Snow

        5 on Fox
        and ill throu in one grandom cracker!

        • rtlstien

          My guesses would either be Fox, King, or Fido

      • Frank

        Probability dictates it’s anyone but Bino. Anyone want to bet it will be King? (I just bet all my cookies away)

        • Argent Stonecutter

          I hope it’s King. And I hope Peanut gets him something very doggy that freaks King out. Just before a weekend, so we have three days to speculate whether King’s going to blow his cover before Rick totally rolls us by coming up with something none of us ever thought of…

          • Whitekitsune

            In that case I vote Daisy. Because come on, she’ll have to be important to something someday. Like Chekhov’s gunman..

          • Argent Stonecutter

            What did she do with the bag of money she got from the Ferrets?

          • FreakazoidVocaloid

            Before Rick totally rolls us… I see what you did there. AUGH.

            On a side note, I hope King comes back into play at some point. I’m starting to miss him. *makes cookies for everyone so the betting can continue*

      • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

        All my internets and cookies on joey. DON’T FAIL ME RICK

      • captainpea

        Can I bet that I don’t think it will come up again?

    • Rocket Knight boy

      Maybe peanut will pull a secret santa for grape if she fails to get the book signed?

      • rtlstien

        That would be really sweet of him, and something I could see him doing.

  13. Z24

    Reality will hit…

    The skull’s for?

    • AvanWolf

      He lost a life on his game

    • Dissension

      It’s a video game noise, Peanut is playing DS, after all.

      • Z24

        lol, I thought is was the secret santa paper >< XD

  14. Profesor Rod

    Keep dreaming, Grape ~__~

  15. Elwood Blutarsky

    Did Peanut’s DS character just die in panel 4?

  16. Pokeblue

    Lol, cute, this is probably gonna be interesting to see.

    I wonder if Peanut knows that he just lost a life in his game.

  17. Alex M.

    Peanut is plotting something,hmmm…

  18. Acefighter028

    haha peanut kinda sly in the last panel. love it

  19. alahmnat

    I *love* the expressions in this one, especially panel 4. Adorable ^_^

  20. dalonewolf25

    Grape looks a lot like Zach or a very familiar bunny in panel 2…

    • Alex M.

      I was thinking the same…
      Bunnies everywhere…

    • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

      This bunny situation is getting out of hand

      • dalonewolf25

        It’s starting to become too canon to Bugs Bunny…
        …it’s still cute, however…

  21. Elwood Blutarsky

    Grape has just set herself up for major failure with this bit.

    3-to-1 Miss Auburn is a a pet-hating human, a very canine dog or an over-the-top female equilivant of the bad parts of Jim Davis.

    • Falcon01

      lil old mad cat lady!

      • Ichiinu

        lil old mad lady cat!

        • Secrettraveler

          She has cat allergy.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            And she’s angry at her publicist for making her do the book signing anyway.

  22. dalonewolf25

    “You and me against the world, baby!” is what this reminded me of…

    • gaboris

      Where’s that from? Or is it just a line ya thought of?
      Either way it still fits it and it’s cool. X3

      • Chip Uni

        The Disney movie “Pete’s Dragon” has a song titled “You and Me Against the World”.

      • dalonewolf25

        Actually, I got it from Ed, Edd, and Eddy…

        • Naylorfan90

          Funny coincidence there, I imagine Eddy voicing Bino and Double D voicing Zach. :3

          • silverfang16

            Ed needs a character…..

  23. The watcher

    Are you still with us mister griffin?

    • Snow

      yes its Mr. Griffin……………Peter Griffin…..

      • Stravvy

        That’s CAPTAIN… Peter Griffin.

  24. Celysus

    Grape is getting way ahead of herself there, haha!

  25. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Is going outside to play a DS what people normally do?

    • Snow

      ehh i do that, My ma always go outside for some fresh air n sun so i just bring my ds and play some good ol pokemon

      • Clairvoyant Legacy

        Wouldn’t the sun cause glare in the screen?

        Well, there is a lack of sun in this particular strip, I suppose.

        • Rick Griffin

          Not on a DS Lite or DSi . . . it has a ‘miniature sun’ setting for screen brightness

          • silverfang16

            You don’t say?

    • Ichiinu

      Besides, the cool air helps it operate at optimum efficiency, yes?

      • Clairvoyant Legacy

        Lucky~

        It can get freaken hot here in New Zealand summer time. >_>

      • Nohbody

        Cold air helps electronics, but it doesn’t help the batteries that power the electronics not plugged into a wall socket. Cold drains the batteries, though off the top of my head I’m not clear on the chemistry involved.

        • Clairvoyant Legacy

          It’s a physics problem, not chemistry problem.

          I think it’s because in a state with less temperature, the electrons are less active.

          Actually, nevermind. I just finished my exams. Stuff this~

          ^_^

  26. Thoth

    And usually grape is the more down-to-earth one. She has it bad…

  27. PEANUT IS RIDICULOUS

    WHAT IS THIS WHY IS PEANUT ALL LIKE THIS NOW.

    This indicates a major shift in Peanut’s character. It seems like him and grape have completely shifted rules. Maybe I have shifted to the other side of the world and today is April 1st?

    Or maybe they’re just funny this way. But it’s interesting how these two characters seem to shift roles with reckless abandon. They also seem to be more kid-like now, rather than the mature characters they were before.

    I have absolutely no clue where they’re gonna go from here.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Grape’s just in fangirl mode while Peanut has other priorities.

      • Ichiinu

        Such as killing enemies in his DS game. Very serious stuff, dat. ‘_’

    • Secrettraveler

      Because prideland is involved?
      And it will probably be the same if Pete is involved……
      And Don’t Panic.

    • Pokeblue

      I think it’s just with what each are doing, like here Grape is acting more child-ish in my opinion, so Peanut has to act more mature and as the voice of reason between the two.

      I get what you mean, after reading this strip, my mind just took a double take and said ‘Whoa did they just switch personalities?’. How Grape is acting, is somewhat how I’d expect Peanut to act, and Peanut is acting rather mature, a trait I had associated with Grape.

      I’m willing to excuse it though, that she’s just excited to meet the author to her favorite book series.

    • Chip Uni

      it’s been well established that Grape is an Ultimate Fan of the Pridelands series.

      (The posters in her room, the begging to role-play Pridelands, the waiting in line for the book…)

      And Peanut is maturing, as well.

    • silverfang16

      Peanut should mature as he gets older, although whether he will ever be “adult” is debatable.

  28. Lance

    Sounds like a page out of Anne McCaffrey’s core fandom. I saw someone actually demonstrate that attitude about McCaffrey.

    Scary.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Anne Rice used to have a problem with people showing up at her house wearing fake plastic fangs.

      • Leinad

        … ewww.
        also, Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) has a lot of trouble with female fans asking to be bitten.

        don’t ask how I know this. >.>… <.<

        • Zolann

          I’d heard he was basically in living fangirl-type h*ll, but nothing like that. Total squick.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Stephen King’s “Misery” is total squick. Anything less is merely incomplete squick.

  29. Buckdida

    It’s always cute when Grape acts like a kid, contrary to her usual behavior. XD

    Excellent job with the expressions as always!

  30. gaboris

    I just love this contrast between them and themselves at the same time, like if they’ve switched parsonalities for some time there. Nice job Rick. :D
    I hope this whole story won’t end with Grape gettin her heart broken by the author though. >.<

  31. Nia

    Ah, the imagination of an everyday crazy fan. It would have been quite if it wasn’t disturbing and creepy.

  32. FinalSilence

    Bets Are Kinda Starting Slow! The Current Total Is 25 and a crumb Cookies. The Question Is This: Which Pets Will Be There And What Do You Think The Author Looks Like Or Is? Please Get To Bidding!

    PS @ dalonewolf: I say MERRY CHRISTMAS! at the time of the holidays, so… ummm, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

    • Frank

      What you wanna bet Grape’s biggest surprize is finding Miss Auburn isn’t even human? (10 cookies on that)

      • FinalSilence

        My theory. 20 cookies if she’s a cat, 25 if she’s a dog.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      I thought we were betting on the secret santa.

        This one is more likely to succeed, as we don’t know who’s going to get the stage of this arc, whether Peanut or Grape (which, at this point, is most likely Grape).

        I bet 500 cookies that she’ll be breaking Grape’s heart at the end.

        @FinalSilence: Well, in that case, Joyeux Noël! Feliz Navidad! Merry Christmas!

        • FinalSilence

          And a Happy New Year!

        • Argent Stonecutter

          OK, 50 cookies on Grape realizing she’s only human, and accepting it in a heartwarming Christmas double strip where Peanut’s secret Santa gift is revealed as hilariously apropos.

      • Z24

        in that case:

        bet #1 King (Tarot may spoil him)

        bet #2 Cat allergy

  33. Kadziet

    haha, I smell ratings :P

    • Naylorfan90

      Me too, I- *looks at avatar*

      …THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!!

      Nah, just kidding. :-P

  34. dragonnutds

    silly grape, didn’t she know the cake is a lie?
    ya, i went there.

    • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

      It may be a lie, but her dreams are STILL ALIVE

      (I could make portal references all night long)

      • Naylorfan90

        I am in awe of how you managed that. *claps*

      • Asteri

        for science

      *Compares to the time I met Harrison Schmitt and he was a real, friendy nice guy*

  36. [enter name here]

    so Peanut is Left-Handed, then

    • Naylorfan90

      Awesome, I’m left-handed! :-D

    • rtlstien

      I think he’s more ambidextrous, in previous panels he’s used his right hand to write/draw.
      Besides it’s not clear if he actually can use his left hand efficiently or if he’s just playing a game that doesn’t require much movement. (I sometimes switch to my left hand during long dialogues where I’m doing nothing but tapping the screen to keep the conversation going).
      Hey Rick, could you enlighten us?

  37. Naylorfan90

    I soooo want an avatar of fourth-panel Peanut. I just love that expression.

  38. Your Obedient Serpent

    Of course, we ALL know RICK personally, from reading his comic and posting in his forum!

    Right? RIGHT???

  39. Shady Kitsune

    Grape made Peanut lose a life, but he didn’t care.
    Good boy. *gives him a biscuit*

    (Notice the tiny skull “emote” in the last panel)

  40. FerreTrip

    Oh, this is gonna be an arc…didn’t notice last time. Stupid me. :P

    Oh, Grape X3 And whoops, looks like someone just lost a life.

    Speaking of, dunno if anyone else has said it here yet, but Peanut’s a lefty? Why does this feel new to me? I know it shouldn’t…(Also, what game is he playing?)

    And I dunno about you, but to play DS effectively, I can’t wear gloves–MAYYYBE one layer of the thin kind, but that’s it. Besides, up here in the upper Midwest, I’m to focused on the fact I’m freezing to play DS outside @_@;

    • Argent Stonecutter

      That’s fur, not gloves. The only concession they’re making to the cold is the magic scarf.

      • Frank

        I thought he meant the glove part as a completely separate point, motivated by the copious covering of snowflakes in the surroundings
        (Supplemented surplusly with 10% more consonance!)

        • FerreTrip

          The gloves part was a separate point.

  41. .:AventGard:.

    Must say, first time posting and I just have to tell you how unbeleivably funny this entire webcomic series/strips is/are. Please dont’ call the grammar nazis on me if I type anything wrong. I just wanted to tell you all that things with Grape seem to be going pretty well, too bad things may not end well…

    • Firewolf

      Welcome! =D And why not?

    • Naylorfan90

      Helloooo! :) It’s great to have you aboard!

    • Trefoiler

      I agree, won’t, and believe you may be right. She may find that Miss Auburn is not, in fact, larger-than-life… but is, rather, much the same size.

      Well, maybe a little larger… I mean, heh, it’s only MISS AUBURN OMGGG

      Also, what they said! Good to have you. ^_^

  42. Firewolf

    Don’t we all wish that we’d be able to have lunch with our heroes?

    • WingedWolfGirl

      Yes. :D

    • [enter name here]

      maybe they wouldn’tlike our food :)

      • Firewolf

        True, not everyone likes dry Top Ramen. =D

      • Trefoiler

        Of course not! The Gods drink only Nectar.

  43. LethalWolf

    …Wait, I can’t meet J.K. Rowling? Or Sonic? D:

    • Firewolf

      And thus confirming my above statement ;-)

  44. xhunterko

    I’m for one more curious about what Peanut’s playing there. Small guess is that it’s Geometry Wars since it’s the only game I know of that I can play just using the stylus.

    • Leinad

      or scribblenauts. awesome game, that.

      • FinalSilence

        Or the Legend of Zelda Spirit Tracks… It uses stylus only too.

    • silverfang16

      Whatever it is……he died……

  45. Alan

    I really like how you did thier expressions in this comic, especially peanut’s in the last panel.

  46. Sperkle

    I’m more surprised that Peanut is being the voice of reason here and Grape is pulling a Peanut.

  47. madmoney

    has anyone notest that grape looks more like a girl now for some reason

    • FinalSilence

      Fangirl mode may include these side-effects: Insanity, hallucinations, extreme energy, looking more feminine, and loss of consciousness upon meeting a certain person.

    • Housepetsfan15

      I’ve noticed, maybe with all the comic posts that rick has done, he’s decided to change each character in a different way. If you look at the older comics, then look at today’s comics you’ll see some minor differences in appearance.

  48. CuteWolf2010

    One of my friends met J.K Rowling.

  49. WingedWolfGirl

    ~DREAM GRAPE!~

  50. APERSON WHO COMMENTS

    I just noticed this, what’s that little skull on frame 4 by peanut?

    • Sansash

      It represents death; it means something just died in his video game.

    • Frank

      I’ve always associated that with the sound of Frogger getting run over. (Kind of like an amp being unplugged)

      But that’s just me.

      • Jarulso

        (First Post)

        You’d think that there would’ve been a tower. x3

    • xhunterko

      With the an exception Sansash, I do believe it means Peanut’s character just died due to him being distracted. But he obviously doesn’t mind so I’m assuming it’s not a very serious game.

      • sansash

        I said “something” to cover all possibilities.

    • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

      Derp. I just realized he’s holding a gameboy

      • FuRrY321

        Double Derp: He’s holding a DS.

        • APERSON WHO COMMENTS

          way to kill it

    • Garbud

      I I had thought he wrote something very Evil

  51. BlueAnubis

    You know, for some odd reason, I have a feeling that Miss Auburn is going to be a dog… I don’t know why…

  52. FinalSilence

    I wonder if Peanut would react the same way if he could meet Shigeru Miyamoto.

  53. tahrey

    Maybe it’s just Peanut’s seldom-seen sly side coming out, but I can’t help feeling they’ve sort of swapped roles and partially personalities in this one…

  54. GameCobra

    I really oughta comment more.

    But seeing Grape with her hopes so high is just <3

    • Housepetsfan15

      I second that. :)

  55. crazyBalto

    Peanut is Left-Handed, so there’s something strange ’cause I’m Left-Handed, I like video games and I have a wii too, we have a lot in common. =P

    • silverfang16

      Peanut is the clone of a lot of people. Avid reader, role player, and gamer.

      • FuRrY321

        Yes, that’d definitely me.

    • Trefoiler

      “I eat sandwiches… he eats sandwiches!”

      You know… that earn my vote as well. ;)

  56. NykVerien

    Its interesting seeing Peanut acting like the older brother that he is with Grape. I like it.

  57. Timothy

    Peanut and Grape are like children in this one. : )

    • RockstarRaccoon

      …I thought all housepets were supposed to be…

  58. Lance

    oh housepets…I love how you can make me smile when I’m feeling down. <3 thanks Rick. i really needed that. =3

    • Trefoiler

      In place of my own comment, I’m inclined to agree with every single word above.

      Like the avatar, too ;)

  59. NexusWulf

    mmmmh … Coffee sounds good right now o.o

  60. Hoheh

    Grape is silly. “We will be buds! And then there will be cake.”
