Keene’s expression on the third panel is pure win!!! ^^
Avatars on 3…
Full of win.
SQUEEEEE!! he’s sooooooo cute in panel 3 X3!!!
I think he’s cuter in panel 2, myself.
I vote for panel 1.
but u dun see his face in panel 2 :c
sorry ai meant panel 1 :3
awwww where did u get that avatar? X3
lol silly rich Ferret
Alt Text: I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO SNOWBOARD AAAAAA
yeah, I am more a skier myself..
I’m going snowboarding tomorrow. @Jakkal: what is your aviatar from?
I think it’s from Dragon Ball… Don’t remember the name of it though.
I thought so to
His name was SHU.
Google is a wonderous thing. Bing Sucks.
What’s YOUR avatar? D:
My Avie is my face cropped (and then recolored) from a home video I made while standing on top of a mountain in Pusan Korea at the old Fortress there. 18 kilometers of wall you can hike around. It was very windy that day.
I don’t know how to snowboard OR ski. It doesn’t snow where I live, so my experience with snow is very limited. I know how to make snowballs or even a snowman, how to eat snow, and that you must never step on a heap of snow, but that’s about it.
Snowboarding is alot easier than Skiing. If you have some decent hills around where you live you should try using a mountain board. I use one in the summer off season to keep my snowboarding skills sharp.
Honestly, I found skiing alot easier than snowbording. Probably because I’m good at rollerblading but can’t ride a skateboard.
Man, they have some awesome skateboards these days, and they’re so cheap. If only my knees were up to it…
(turns head) Of Course!
SOMEBODY GET ME OFF THIS THING!!!
Well, wut do you think he said after “I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO SNOWBOARD AAAAAAA”?
He said “Ow! Ow! Ow ow ow ow! AUGH!”
The best way to stop is to crash. :3
that’s also the best way to stop living.
How about shifting your right foot?
Lol, clever. His face in panel 3 really is win.
It kinda reminds me of Grape. :3
I hope the ferrets make a ski & snowboarding resort..it would be cute seeing Peanut and Grape snowboarding and afterwords drink hot chocolate near the fire place.
and be all like “I can’t believe this isn’t chocolate!”
Nice bulbasaur avatar <3
Two words: that’s awesome.
The next Shawn White or whatever that snowboarder is called…
Aah I see what you did there with the title.
WOOT SNOWBOARDING YAY!!!!
beware grinning ferrets!
And a grinning ferret with a flamethrower at that. That’s like 10 levels of awesome or 10 levels of “it’s about to hit the fan.”
The Australian Army flamethrower was called the “Ferret”. It was replaced by US made flamethrowers which were just as effective and much cheaper.
Yay for American cheapness! *throws arms up in the air* Now if only we can figure out what SHOULDN’T be cheap…
So which patches of brown fur are burned and which are not?
Snowboarding ferrets = win.
Snowboarding *insert animal*= win
if the human is good enough to beat the other snowboarding humans, then yes. snowboarding human = win(ner)
For evidence, watch reruns of Shaun White snowboarding during the last winter olympics
I knew someone was going to saw that! When I said ” animal” I meant everything but humans
Okay, “Snowboarding snail”
That is a win
a snowboarding fish would drown in the air.
not if its in a fish bowl.
If it’s cold enough for snow, it’s cold enough for the water in the fish bowl to freeze. plus, it’s hard to control a snowboard from inside a fish bowl.
so, if you saw a fish in a fish bowl go down a hill on a snowboard and not die, you would call it a win
I would. I think any time something goes against the laws of probability and logic to a positive outcome, it is a win.
The thing is the ice would make it harder to snowbord
This, brought to you by the world where all animals can talk, those with paws walk bipedal, and pumpkins can be sliced like a ham: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/10/28/punkin/
Not necessarily. Ice is pretty slick. Since he melted it down, it’ll be even easier.
It screws up your board or skis and makes it hard to control
He obviously doesn’t have any control to begin with.
Gotta love these ferrets.
do you even need a facemask to operate a flamethrower? i know he’s wearing it to look cool, and i don’t dispute Rick’s right to draw a ferret in a welding mask, but i was just wondering if any members of the housepets! community were flamethrower-savvy.
Just a guess, you probably can.
On cool factor, why not not?
Realism, you need a gasmask and oxygen tank since so much of the flames eat up the breathable air.
A ferret in a gas mask would be cooler.
But nowhere near as cute.
Hedgehogs in gas masks are pretty cute, so why not ferrets?
I believe you’d also need a mask to protect your eyes. Staring at the fire would hurt after a while, and not staring would make you swing the thing wildly, and we can’t have the ferret causing a ruckus, now can we?
(it’s a rhetorical question. Of course we can and shall)
Personally, I wouldn’t want my eyebrows removed if it backfires on me.
I aprove of welding mask!
That’s right. He knows, O he knows a bit too well, …that his hospital bill will be astronomical! XD
….hmm anyone got some bricks? I seem to be out at the moment. o.o
I used to go snowboarding alot… till my injury… one second I’m doing a sick cross-poprocket in the pipe the next I’m in the E.R. watching them hammer this rail road spike looking thingy into my kneecap.. lol pain is painful
ROFS (rolling on floor screaming)?
I hereby declare that a new internet thingy!
Meme. They’re called memes.
You should Know Your Memes … dot com
Why not just declare internet thingy an internet thingy? It’s a better phrase than “meme” in my opinion, which is just a really, really, ugly word in English.
I swear, that word just sends me ROFS
According to TVtropes, “Meme” is short for “Memetic mutation” [of language]
I guess TVtropes can be wrong!
[The word meme originated with Dawkins' 1976 book The Selfish Gene. To emphasize commonality with genes, Dawkins coined the term "meme" by shortening "mimeme", which derives from the Greek word mimema ("something imitated"). -- Wikipedia]
It is RIDICULOUS what kind of air he’s getting.
He’s not getting air.
He will be soon.
I hope he pulls of a double McTwist
Now what will the staff do all day?!
make popcorn and watch?
They’re following behind, just off panel.
Tomorrow they open a ski resort.
No… a Winter dome that has a ski resort, hiking trails, snowball arena. And it snows all the time
heh, leave it to a ferret to make the best out of this
The other ferrets are tunneling.
snowboarding in a tunnel of ice
totally tubular. (otherwise the board would get caught up and you would fall. ^_^)
oh me next (jumps on snowboard) weeeeeeeee!
That would make you a weeeeeeesel?
I saw what you did there………ROFLMAO ROFLMAO
that pun hurts. I’m going to go into a corner and ROFS for the rest of the day
Oh, I got dead again! This game stinks!
Getting to use a flamethrower AND to snowboard?
“Keene” is the new word for “awesome”
Like ‘peachy Keene’? I’m not sure even an iceboarding ferret with a blowtorch can bring that phrase back.
That is so keen!
I’m not much of an extreme kinda person(can’t do any of these boarding things), but OH MAN I’d be in freaking heaven if I had a chance to use a flamefrower. Gotta get myself some riches so I can fool around a bit. X3
I think Rick is listening to us. someone mentions a tunnel system, so peanut mentions a tunnel system. Someone points out that flamethrowers to melt snow would leave a bunch of ice, so this ferret uses that to his advantage. people, make your suggestions and some of them will not be ignored (unless of course Rick is just coming up with these things on his own)
I want to see a massive snowball fight, daisy comes out and says “hi, I’m daisy!”, and then she gets buried in snowballs
Rick came up with the flame thrower
but someone in the comments mentioned that it would just refreeze if not done properly.
So if I say “Giant Snow fort”, we’ll see one on Monday?
or Wednesday, it’s all up to Rick.
what if i say, “Res randomly comes back and Peanut declares today Official Cookie Day”?
I think that, eventually, Res and his owner are going to want a nice, quiet life in the suburbs and will move to Babylon Gardens.
although in Babylon Gardens, the suburban life is anything but quiet.
So much awesome for just one comic today. Keene gets to play with a flamethrower and snowboard? Being a well-to-do ferret has its perks.
Now let’s see him do SkiFree.
Here’s a hint, you can’t escape the monster.
Shouldn’t a flamethrower be accompanied with maniacal laughter?
No, it should be Accompanied with Muffled Screams of joy! *avatar*
And a Gas Mask
And a cube that is painted orange
So I just read all of these from start to finish.
I’m very happy I did so
I love Peanut and Grape so much!
why have so many people started to read this comic in the last couple of weeks?
Well I’m one of this people, and I
only heard of this comic when I asked a guy
that owns a lan if he knew a comics site that were not VG Cats
I’m one of these people too. I suppose I have no way of knowing whether or not this is a normal rate of fanbase increase
I would say where I first heard of this, but there are kids in the forum
I found this comic by finding Rick’s DeviantArt page.
I think I just struck a new favorite strip
You has a name?
Yes, I signed up on the forums like a week ago so I figured I might as well start using an actual allias
O.o…. Cool like surf….. wel i not surf but…but snow bording sounds cool XD
“I’m aware that I am super rich”
hahahahahha, I am a little jealous
welcome to the club
the only club poor people can get into.
because the country clubs are too expensive.
Hey, let’s go clubbing!
*Grabs a fallen tree branch*
I don’t think they allow branches in the club. but maybe you can hit the bouncer with it and get in.
*5 minutes later* “Ahh, what happened. HEY! GET OUT OF—”*boink*
“He should really wear a helmet…”
*5 more minutes later* “Ahh, not again. NOW FOR THE FINAL TIM—”*boink*
“Why is he still here.”
“Ahh, what. NOW YOU GET—”*looks at the Great Wall of China*
“So, where did you send that guy?”
“I put him behind a giant sheet of paper that I painted to look like the Great Wall.”
“How did you afford the paint?”
“GET OUT OF HERE! YOUR NOT POOR ENOUGH!”*guy goes flying out of the door*
I say, I am very mift from all of these rich fellows trying to get into our club!! >_Q
HE HA S A MONOCLE!!! GET HIM!!!!
ROFL ROFL! not my intention but still a win kudos
Do they let mods in this club?
Wait!!! You’re all posting comments! That means you must have a computer!!! OUT ALL OF YOU OUT!!! Wait…
Man….i-it’s s-s-so c-c-c-c-cold…
Maybe we’re at a friend’s house using their computer.
Well I don’t know about you but I break into a lan in the night to use internet for free
Did you use a car to get to the friend’s house Brent?
I’ve seen homeless guys using wifi at coffee shops.
I don’t use a car, I roll there in a spare tire I found in a junkyard.
U jell- *bricked*
The only way to make this better is if Jeeves was the one snowboarding.
That would be pretty exceptional.
If you want to get Jeeves to do something, all you have to do is ask Jeeves.
I saw what you did there. *rimshot*
Hey Jeeves, can you—
Already on iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttttttttt. *going down a hill*
Okay…Are you okay?
I’ll take that as a yes.
Jeeves is there butler and butlers can do everything
except disobey orders from their employer.
they can if it’s a direct order.
if you mean they can disobey an order if they have been ordered to disobey an order, you’re wrong. It would cause a logic error and their head would explode.
You could tell him to not listen to what you say.
then he isn’t disobeying an order, he is not hearing the order.
Thus there is no head exploding paradox of logic
bu t he’s still not actively disobeying an order if he doesn’t hear the order.
Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! MY HEAD!!!
oops, i blew up the balloon.
well they’re relatively cheap, so just have Jeeves go out and buy you a bunch of new balloons.
Heck, if I could get my hands on one, I’d use a flamethrower even if it got me in trouble
The propane burners they use to fire hit air balloons are much cooler than flamethrowers. Though not man-portable.
In retrospect, I don’t think cooler is the word I was looking for.
I think The Flamethrower Joke is a Refrence to this comic’s Alt-text:
I’m not sure though. it does mention a Flamethrower, but…
I can’t get on a computer, could someone tell me what the alt text is?
it says the alt-text, I mean.
Ah right! I forgot that was there. Thanks!
HAH Rick doesn’t know how to snowboard, I finally beat him at something!
I think that was supposed to be Keene talking. Rick still wins.
What would happen if he put the flamethrower right behind him, turn it on, a snowboards…
Nothing would happen, you would just stay still. unless you mean that you turn it on WHILE snowboarding, in that case you would look like you were leaving a trail of fire, which would be AWESOME!!!
Or an “accident” could happen
By “accident” I mean an unintentional gender change surgery
Also he would scream:
-OMG My golden nuggets are on fire
How? The flamethrower would be facing the other direction
Yes, since none of the ferrets are very inteligent but we can
work with the hypothesis of the flamethrower having some
kind of defect and exploding
-OMG My golden nuggets ARE on fire.
*Sniff* Yum. They smell nice. I think I’ll have one.
heh… BURN THE SNOW WIPE THE LAND OF THE UNCLEAN! MWA HAHAHAHAAA!.
i mean…… what?
What indeed. Did you just make a 40k reference
PURGE THIS HERESY! ITS ALL OVER THE SNOW!
Yes! Someone else gets my 40k references
ok im having a really hard time making an gravitar. it wount let me crop the image. HELP!!!!!!
Crop it in a regular program before uploading.
But then how do you save it as a picture? I’m no very computer savvy
Open up paint, and click “Save as”
Trick-ayy! It’s trick-ayy! IT’S TRICK-TO-ROCK-A-RHYME-TO-ROCK-A-RHYME-THAT’S-RIGHT-ON-TIME-IT’S-Trick-AYY! It’s-trick-AYY!! It’s tricky, tricky, TRICKY!!
…Sorry. SSX is one of my favorite series ever. X3;
I want Jeeves’s job =)
