    Alt Text: I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO SNOWBOARD AAAAAA

    • Jakkal

      yeah, I am more a skier myself..

      • anon_omis

        I’m going snowboarding tomorrow. @Jakkal: what is your aviatar from?

        • FreakazoidVocaloid

          I think it’s from Dragon Ball… Don’t remember the name of it though.

          • anon_omis

            I thought so to

          • AflacMan13

            His name was SHU.

            Google is a wonderous thing. Bing Sucks.

          • Lupus

            What’s YOUR avatar? D:

          • AflacMan13

            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.

    • Gabi

      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.

      • AflacMan13

        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.

        • anon_omis

          Honestly, I found skiing alot easier than snowbording. Probably because I’m good at rollerblading but can’t ride a skateboard.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Man, they have some awesome skateboards these days, and they’re so cheap. If only my knees were up to it…

  3. zero159

    Ice snowboarding.

    • RegularBird

      Iceboarding anyone?

      • Snow

        (turns head) Of Course!

  4. xhunterko

    SOMEBODY GET ME OFF THIS THING!!!

    • sonic id furreh!!!

      wut? >.>

      • Frank

        Well, wut do you think he said after “I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO SNOWBOARD AAAAAAA”?

        • Argent Stonecutter

          He said “Ow! Ow! Ow ow ow ow! AUGH!”

          • the Art Wolf

            The best way to stop is to crash. :3

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            that’s also the best way to stop living.

          • Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

            How about shifting your right foot?

  5. Pokeblue

    Lol, clever. His face in panel 3 really is win.

    • Naylorfan90

      It kinda reminds me of Grape. :3

  6. netherwolf

    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.

    • darkgloomie

      and be all like “I can’t believe this isn’t chocolate!”

      • Snow

        Nice bulbasaur avatar <3

  7. zeroslash

    Two words: that’s awesome.

  8. Russiarules1

    The next Shawn White or whatever that snowboarder is called…

  9. Shiranai

    Aah I see what you did there with the title.
    Very Clever.

  10. Leafy

    WOOT SNOWBOARDING YAY!!!!

  11. falcon01

    beware grinning ferrets!

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      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.”

      • Argent Stonecutter

        The Australian Army flamethrower was called the “Ferret”. It was replaced by US made flamethrowers which were just as effective and much cheaper.

        • Naylorfan90

          Yay for American cheapness! *throws arms up in the air* Now if only we can figure out what SHOULDN’T be cheap…

  12. Hypergenesis

    So which patches of brown fur are burned and which are not?

  13. Tha Housedog

    Snowboarding ferrets = win.

    • anon_omis

      Snowboarding *insert animal*= win

      • Frank

        Snowboarding Human?

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          if the human is good enough to beat the other snowboarding humans, then yes. snowboarding human = win(ner)

          • anon_omis

            For evidence, watch reruns of Shaun White snowboarding during the last winter olympics

        • anon_omis

          I knew someone was going to saw that! When I said ” animal” I meant everything but humans

          • Frank

            Okay, “Snowboarding snail”

          • anon_omis

            That is a win

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            a snowboarding fish would drown in the air.

          • anon_omis

            not if its in a fish bowl.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            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.

          • anon_omis

            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

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I would. I think any time something goes against the laws of probability and logic to a positive outcome, it is a win.

  14. garbud

    The thing is the ice would make it harder to snowbord

    • Indagare

      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/

      • garbud

        True

    • FreakazoidVocaloid

      Not necessarily. Ice is pretty slick. Since he melted it down, it’ll be even easier.

      • anon_omis

        It screws up your board or skis and makes it hard to control

  15. RegularBird

    Gotta love these ferrets.

  16. Leinad

    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.

    • RegularBird

      Just a guess, you probably can.

    • WolvenOps

      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.

    • darkgloomie

      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)

    • Mavros

      Personally, I wouldn’t want my eyebrows removed if it backfires on me.
      I aprove of welding mask!

  17. I Am...

    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

  18. benzo

    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 :D

    • Argent Stonecutter

      ROFS (rolling on floor screaming)?

      • Naylorfan90

        I hereby declare that a new internet thingy!

        • Frank

          Meme. They’re called memes.

          You should Know Your Memes … dot com

          • CaptainPea

            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

          • Frank

            According to TVtropes, “Meme” is short for “Memetic mutation” [of language]

          • Argent Stonecutter

            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]

  19. Errick

    It is RIDICULOUS what kind of air he’s getting.

    • anon_omis

      He’s not getting air.

      • FreakazoidVocaloid

        He will be soon.

        • anon_omis

          I hope he pulls of a double McTwist

          • Mavros

            …sounds tasty

  20. silverfang16

    Now what will the staff do all day?!

    • benzo

      chronic… :D

      • Leinad

        make popcorn and watch?

        • CaptainPea

          They’re following behind, just off panel.
          Tomorrow they open a ski resort.

          • Z-Zman

            No… a Winter dome that has a ski resort, hiking trails, snowball arena. And it snows all the time

  21. Valerio

    heh, leave it to a ferret to make the best out of this :D

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The other ferrets are tunneling.

      • netherwolf

        snowboarding in a tunnel of ice :D

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          totally tubular. (otherwise the board would get caught up and you would fall. ^_^)

  22. chrismutt

    oh me next (jumps on snowboard) weeeeeeeee!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      That would make you a weeeeeeesel?

      • anon_omis

        I saw what you did there………ROFLMAO ROFLMAO

      • Mavros

        that pun hurts. I’m going to go into a corner and ROFS for the rest of the day

  23. Anon

    VEEEEE! :V

  24. 2MK

    Oh, I got dead again! This game stinks!

  25. Shady Kitsune

    Getting to use a flamethrower AND to snowboard?
    “Keene” is the new word for “awesome”

    • BluFox

      Like ‘peachy Keene’? I’m not sure even an iceboarding ferret with a blowtorch can bring that phrase back.

    • Naylorfan90

      That is so keen!

  26. gaboris

    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

  27. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    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)

    • anon_omis

      I want to see a massive snowball fight, daisy comes out and says “hi, I’m daisy!”, and then she gets buried in snowballs

    • garbud

      Rick came up with the flame thrower

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        but someone in the comments mentioned that it would just refreeze if not done properly.

    • Frank

      So if I say “Giant Snow fort”, we’ll see one on Monday?

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        or Wednesday, it’s all up to Rick.

        • darkgloomie

          what if i say, “Res randomly comes back and Peanut declares today Official Cookie Day”?

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            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.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            although in Babylon Gardens, the suburban life is anything but quiet.

  28. Salenstormwing

    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.

  29. Corodan

    Now let’s see him do SkiFree.

    HOHOHOHO-

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Here’s a hint, you can’t escape the monster.

  30. Swearingspartan

    Shouldn’t a flamethrower be accompanied with maniacal laughter?

    • Ilovehousepets

      No, it should be Accompanied with Muffled Screams of joy! *avatar*

      • Ilovehousepets

        And a Gas Mask

        • Mavros

          And a cube that is painted orange

  31. Aidan

    So I just read all of these from start to finish.

    I’m very happy I did so :D

    I love Peanut and Grape so much!

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      why have so many people started to read this comic in the last couple of weeks?

      • phantomBR

        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

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          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

          • anon_omis

            I would say where I first heard of this, but there are kids in the forum

          • Z-Zman

            I found this comic by finding Rick’s DeviantArt page.

  32. Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

    I think I just struck a new favorite strip

    • Argent Stonecutter

      You has a name?

      • Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

        Yes, I signed up on the forums like a week ago so I figured I might as well start using an actual allias

  33. ramisisc

    O.o…. Cool like surf….. wel i not surf but…but snow bording sounds cool XD

  34. madmoney

    falethrower

  35. phantomBR

    “I’m aware that I am super rich”
    hahahahahha, I am a little jealous

    • Leinad

      welcome to the club

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        the only club poor people can get into.

        • Z-Zman

          Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            because the country clubs are too expensive.

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            Hey, let’s go clubbing!

            *Grabs a fallen tree branch*

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I don’t think they allow branches in the club. but maybe you can hit the bouncer with it and get in.

          • Z-Zman

            *5 minutes later* “Ahh, what happened. HEY! GET OUT OF—”*boink*

            “He should really wear a helmet…”

          • Z-Zman

            *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*

          • Z-Zman

            “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*

          • anon_omis

            I say, I am very mift from all of these rich fellows trying to get into our club!! >_Q

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            HE HA S A MONOCLE!!! GET HIM!!!!

          • anon_omis

            ROFL ROFL! not my intention but still a win kudos

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Do they let mods in this club?

          • Z-Zman

            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…

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            Maybe we’re at a friend’s house using their computer.

          • phantomBR

            Well I don’t know about you but I break into a lan in the night to use internet for free

          • Z-Zman

            Did you use a car to get to the friend’s house Brent?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I’ve seen homeless guys using wifi at coffee shops.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I don’t use a car, I roll there in a spare tire I found in a junkyard.

    • Ilovehousepets

      U jell- *bricked*

  36. CaptainPea

    The only way to make this better is if Jeeves was the one snowboarding.
    That would be pretty exceptional.

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      If you want to get Jeeves to do something, all you have to do is ask Jeeves.

      • anon_omis

        I saw what you did there. *rimshot*

        • Z-Zman

          Hey Jeeves, can you—
          Already on iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttttttttt. *going down a hill*
          Okay…Are you okay?
          uuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhh…
          I’ll take that as a yes.

          • anon_omis

            Jeeves is there butler and butlers can do everything

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            except disobey orders from their employer.

          • darkgloomie

            they can if it’s a direct order.

          • Z-Zman

            true…

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            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.

          • anon_omis

            You could tell him to not listen to what you say.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            then he isn’t disobeying an order, he is not hearing the order.

          • anon_omis

            Thus there is no head exploding paradox of logic

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            bu t he’s still not actively disobeying an order if he doesn’t hear the order.

          • Z-Zman

            Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! MY HEAD!!!
            *BOOM*

            oops, i blew up the balloon.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            well they’re relatively cheap, so just have Jeeves go out and buy you a bunch of new balloons.

  37. Flintfang

    Heck, if I could get my hands on one, I’d use a flamethrower even if it got me in trouble

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The propane burners they use to fire hit air balloons are much cooler than flamethrowers. Though not man-portable.

  38. Ilovehousepets

    I think The Flamethrower Joke is a Refrence to this comic’s Alt-text:
    http://www.housepetscomic.com/2011/01/12/snow-doubt-about-it/

    I’m not sure though. it does mention a Flamethrower, but…

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      it is

  39. Firewolf

    LOL XD

  40. anon_omis

    I can’t get on a computer, could someone tell me what the alt text is?

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      second comment.

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        it says the alt-text, I mean.

        • anon_omis

          Ah right! I forgot that was there. Thanks!

        • Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

          HAH Rick doesn’t know how to snowboard, I finally beat him at something!

          *Fistpump*

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I think that was supposed to be Keene talking. Rick still wins.

  41. Z-Zman

    What would happen if he put the flamethrower right behind him, turn it on, a snowboards… :D

    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    • anon_omis

      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!!!

      • phantomBR

        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

        • anon_omis

          How? The flamethrower would be facing the other direction

          • phantomBR

            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

          • Z-Zman

            -OMG My golden nuggets ARE on fire.
            *Sniff* Yum. They smell nice. I think I’ll have one.

            …?…?…?…?…Ouch.

    • Z24

      Surfing

  42. Jillis aka fox

    heh… BURN THE SNOW WIPE THE LAND OF THE UNCLEAN! MWA HAHAHAHAAA!.
    i mean…… what?

    • anon_omis

      What indeed. Did you just make a 40k reference

      • RegularBird

        PURGE THIS HERESY! ITS ALL OVER THE SNOW!

        • anon_omis

          Yes! Someone else gets my 40k references

  43. anon_omis

    ok im having a really hard time making an gravitar. it wount let me crop the image. HELP!!!!!!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Crop it in a regular program before uploading.

      • anon_omis

        But then how do you save it as a picture? I’m no very computer savvy

        • Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

          Open up paint, and click “Save as”

          • anon_omis
