Slap slap slap lol!!!
they look kinda small
ai wonder wai :3
Well… It’s a cat and a dog. Even if they’re anthros, they’re still a cat and a dog.
Slap Fight lol.
Reference to dexters lab?
It’s funny because the Alt text says: Okay, I’ll be honest, I pretty much drew this for panel three.
And Last panel Max of course.
Yeah…I’m counting down the seconds until the first avatar gets made.
lol Max is annoying but somehow its less annoying because hes doing it to Bino
LOL thats a typical cat vs. dog thing
To be fair, Max wanted a fight.
They are like little brothers :3
Yes they are alot like my little 11 year old brother and me… I am a US Army Level 3 Combatives Instructor so I taught him some stuff… Now our rumble sessions are rather more challenging.
Ruled by an iron fist. They never had a chance.
That’s it… NOW THAT is an epic fight!
Oh dear, I do believe that I am actually feeling bad for Bino.
Yah me to it’s weird
Tch I don’t mehehehehehee >:#
Yeah looks like they both might have gotten belted one for that one.
omg bino is adorable in this one!
They’re both adorable!
This whole comic strip is adorable
Ah… I remember when I was that territorial with my siblings…
Again, for a second, I thought Max was living with them or something.
He’s still a stray, right?
I don’t think Max is a stray. http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/04/27/no-joke-today-just-violence/
IN THIS SERIES.
Max isn’t a stray
He mentions his “dad” here, too.
Aw, man. That was an even sadder face than I remembered. Now I have something in my eye.
As unlikely it may seem, Max and Bino live together. Mr. Cat Hater himself has one for a roomate.
it’s like those “no girls allowed” clubs when the leader has a sister. only with cats and dogs instead of boys and girls.
Heh, the alt text makes it even better.
What is it
“Okay I’ll be honest, I pretty much drew this for panel three.”
Okay I’ll be honest, I pretty much just read this for panel three.
Well we learned that the snow level isn’t so high to lock everyone in. As we can see Max and Bino were able to get out to shovel the driveway.
So I guess no elaborate tunnel system?
I dunno, “above the top of the garage door” level is still pretty high
Regardless, they managed to get out and apparently dig a giant trench down to ground level. As long as we see an elaborate tunnel system by the end of the arc, I’ll be happy.
So, we’re going to get no elaborate tunnel system not because the snow isn’t deep enough but because Rick is teasing us.
I think I got the double negatives right.
Wait, does that mean right, wrong, positive, or negative. (whatever that means)
‘Taint no thing, brother.
Alt Text: Okay I’ll be honest, I pretty much drew this for panel three
Yeah, I remembered my younger sister doing the same.
And later my younger brother doing it with her. ^^
What a troll, lol.
Also brotherly love lol
More like brotherly hate
Are you kidding?
I have a younger brother and a older brother.
Thats as close as they’ll get all year.
Slap fight is the most adorable fight there is \o/
no still slap
This great. XD Well, this only further consolidated the fact Max is annoying, but somehow….it seems okay.
Do they really live on the same house?! it’s a miracle it didn’t explode XD
Panel 3 justifies the entire comic ^.^
And not just today’s comic either. It justifies the WHOLE comic! :O
That’s some epic proportions.
When somebody declares that they have a side, you have to do what Max does.
Pity if you don’t have a tail to do it with.
If someone did that to me I would grab his tail and say “it’s on my half, therefor it’s mine” *yank*
You’d get slapped.
He’d get punched
Since this is tails we’re talking about, I’d go with “clawed”
Haha..i love a good cat’n'dog fight,but that’s what u get for fighting,even if it’s a slapfight.
Bino’s quite territorial
Their hands MULTIPLY?! BLASPHEMY!
God i love panel 3. For some reason though… max looks “smooth” at panel 4 – who else agrees wit me?
I agree! *nod nod*
-loves max quietly while cuddling plush of him and wondering how he got the bite on his ear-
Probably doing something like this
I know it’s wrong, but I LOVE annoying people who are like that. They make it so easy. XD
I am both Max AND Bino.
Wait, this means I have to include parts of Bino in my personality statement. This is troubling.
At least I’m more of Max.
In fact, now I’m only Bino-ish with my little brother.
Also, don’t touch my side of the driveway. There IS a system in place, and if you cross this line, I will destroy you. And pay attention to me, I’m important. All I ask for is your unquestioning obedience.
Also, Jeff is the avatar of my mother.
(I had to go to the cast page to get the name in order to make you all think I remembered it! Oh wait…)
Also, apparently my first post will be the old avatar, after which I move on to the next one. Because I can never remember until I post.
And I need to go through and make some new ones. SO ALL CAN SEE THE TRUTH THAT IS ME.
(I scare myself. I think my meds just wore off. How do I make a scared face?)
when my meds ware off, I become purposely annoying like max (gotta love ADHD). also, I think I may have Bino’s greed and anger issues.
I think that should have been “wear” off.
I’m reading it again and realizing that I am EXACTLY like Bino in this panel.
Either Bino is maturing, or I dislike the elements of myself I see in him, or both.
Grumble grumble comics makin me think and examine my inner self and stuff. Feh.
Youre the only one
There can be only one.
The chosen one
One cat to rule them all
There is only Zuul.
there is no you, there is only me.
There is only Chuck Noris
and his sub-Norrises and Zombie-Norrises.
Stop ruining his awesome references, one thing is not getting the Highlander reference, but the GHOSTBUSTERS ONE? COME ON PEOPLE.
I got the highlander reference, as I’m sure most of us do. we’re just contributing our own references. as for my last comment, I like to kill jokes.
One is the loneliest number.
Two can be as sad as one
‘Cuz it’s the loneliest number since the number one…
yes my plan worked perfectly!!!
three dog night.
this belonged after the “loneliest number” comments, so as to go on to three even though the song stops at two. here, it makes no sense.
aaah the whole girly slapping fight a la Dexter’s laboratory XD
It’s not girly! The only thing more manly than a slap-fight is an armless space marine duel, which I invented myself.
Basically, you bend your arm all the way, and hit the other guy’s elbow with your elbow until one of you gives up. My friend is the reigning champ by virtue of accidentally hitting my other friend right in that place where the elbow-cap-thing joins. Ow.
No comments about that.
But slapping seems more piratical…
Argh! My comment awaits moderation! YOU MUST KNOW MY RESPONSE, it is of the UTMOST URGENCY.
I wonder what word is under suspicion.
Obvious, it’s “elbow-cap-thing”.
It’s not a kind of thing you should say here. Think about the children!
On an unrelated note, is your screen name “The Absolute Value of Chronos”? Because that’s awesome.
I chose this nickname long ago, in a MMO I used to play, because all other names I wanted were already being used. ^^
It’s better than how I got my pseudonym.
I was having a squirtgun fight while wearing a bathrobe over my clothes. I ducked under the robe, like Batman under his fireproof cape in Batman Forever, and yelled out “I am Val Kilmer Batman, and your meager attacks cannot hurt me!”
And thus a legend was born.
Only one word, EPIC.
Now, if its good or bad, you choose. ^^
I am more like Val Kilmer Chris Knight, myself.
Oh god, I saw my family for a second…….
Oh Man, This is to good!
So cute! x3
I hate it when dogs and cats don’t get along.
In this case I’ll make an exception.
…isn’t that the vast majority of this comic though?
For some reason this explains why Max lost his ear.
Is precisely what I was thinking.
Well, I was thinking “that explains the bite on Max’s ear”.
Because he’s still got most of it.
I only thought “There goes the other ear”… XD
OMAGAD THE CUTENESS! Bino is unbelievably cute with his winter coat all ruffled up and doing slapfight, and Max is at his best! Squeeee!!!!
Also, never realized how small Bino could be!
Hahaha, much agreed! Love that giggle-face on Max in panel 3!
Yeah, same here. In fact…is he shorter than Max?
I agree that they are small,although that couch is kinda big,but they’re pets,they should be small
I knew this was a bad idea the second I saw Maxwell smiling.
He’s like a Cheshire troll.
you win an Internet
you can use it to control the world. or to look at sites best not mentioned on the site.
Thanks, I was running out.
Last time I saw a win that epic, it was the troll face (which appears in panel 1?)
Heh that’s the same fight I have with my cousin when he comes to wisit us… except the slap-slap part cuz I just slam him right onto the bed. XD
Is it just me or are there like no human kids in this comic?
There was one in a crowd scene at a Pridelands event. Not the one with the writer. Frank will know where it is.
And when they visited that farm
Argent’s referring to the March 18th, 2009 strip.
Anon is referring to the July 1st, 2009 strip.
Why do I always get tasked with finding these?
because everyone else is lazy. ^_^
Because that’s just the way your inner awesome expresses itself.
Because you have a good memory…wait, how many times have you done this?
Because…man, I can’t think of anything else
From panel 4, I can see that Max still don’t want to quit
was that a rethorical observation, kind sir?
How does one make an observation rhetorical? Or is it that most observations are rhetorical, and only sometimes require an answer?
technically, rhetorical only means having to do with rhetoric, which is defined as the art of using language to communicate effectively and persuasively. It doesn’t mean not requiring an answer unless used to describe a question.
tl;dr: Sometimes a rhetorical question needs a rhetorical answer.
basically, I said that rhetorical has a different meaning when not referring to a question.
I’m gonna bet that there’ll be a few new icons made of Max’s antics here.
Specially in panel 1 when he puts on his trollface.
Don’t Do It People.
I’d be ok with him coming in my side of the drive way
I’ll get the newspaper…
I don’t know about you, but I think shovels are much better if you’re trying to get a point across to your pets.
But… but, the newspaper’s a classic 8(
I declare this is the best of the series so far.
Max literally put on his trollface in panel 1
Oh…my sides…they hurt so much from laughing at panel 3… XD
Heh I feel just like both of them.
Kind of wierd to see Bino as the one we sympathize with. That probably hasn’t happened since the Valentine’s arc last year.
Between a huge inferiority complex with Fido and Max liking to grinding gears, SOME of Bino’s jerk habits make sense. But he’d likely get more out of yoga than he does being irritable all the time.
Jerk yoga. It’s a thing.
ah, i know the enjoyment max gets from tormenting his sibling, i have bugged my younger brother to the same extent and it only gets funnier the more i do it!
this strip made me lol mr griffin
This is so awesome.
haha just so great the Slap Panel made me laugh ^^
Max wins. Always. Even when you try to slap him; you’ll somehow end up slapping yourself!
*looks panel 3 over carefully*
Whoa… u r right.
I think Bino was attempting to block and his hand got knocked into his face.
There’s one hand where the palm is facing him, near the bottom
yes, but I imagine that’s his left paw on the follow-through. the top one looks more like it is actually slapping himself.
I was never that immature with my older brother. I did, however, stab him in the back with a mechanical pencil and hit him over the head with a metal toy rifle. kids do the darnedest things.
You said it brother :X
Shut up Hulk Hogan, or are you a Spess Mhrien?
I’m sorry, but ever since that led poisoning and skull smashing event, our friend can’t talk.
pencil lead hasn’t contained lead for years. It’s all graphite now.
Did anyone get my reference?
You can’t just go along SRGNB (SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent). Can I call you that for short.
you can call me that, Brent, SomeRandomGeek, SoRaGe, Random Geek, or, in rare cases, Sergeant Nub(which is how I would imagine SRG. NB would be pronounced)
or call me Sarge.
I had a tour bus driver in D.C.
I can call you Betty.
And Betty, when you call me, you can call me Al.
Rmeinds me of my family. Every. Day. Except when me and my bro have to shovel, theres more snow flying than driveway clearing.
In response to the alt-text: I don’t blame you. X3;
Im pretty sure I know what Max is gonna do next
Turns out it was actually a snowplow. That I bet was driven by Bino… We shall never know.
SHOVEL TO THE FACE
Ideas like this are why I plan on making a character in D&D with the feat “Weapon Focus (Shovel)”
I don’t even know D&D any more. I don’t remember that in the box set.
heh. That’s what my brother and I do all the time when riding in my parents’ vehicle. Except we both do it on purpose to drive them nuts. heehee
Max is living with Bino.
I missed something somewhere. -_-
What did the five fingers say to the face? SLAP
I know it’s been said before, but Max really enjoys being a jerk, huh?
Though Bino is a bit too “srs bizniz” about everything.
Here is my alt text for Bino in the first panel: you can’t use your tail in ninga!
Lousy shovel technique, too.
Tell me about it. Their tails would make the perfect levers.
Or at least Max’s would.
I was thinking of them not holding onto the crosspiece, so they’re liable to have a loaded shovel twist in their paws, dumping snow on the ground, and giving them splinters.
NOT TOUCHING CANT GET MAD!!!
I think I know how Max lost a chunk of his ear.
lol! housepets 4 teh win!!!!!
Well during the “Slapping” panel I thought of a anime reference…either the open hands flying in a flurry like fist in an anime…or…the whole epic charge up and running towards each other then ending with a nerdy/childish slapfest….but Mr. Griifn’s version is so cute…I ;however, got a kick out of all of you other fans comments….I could just see Peanut and grape bet on the winning….cts (chuckles to self).
And then Max trolled Bino more, chuckling at how he always reacted…
wens the next one im pure turkey’ing for it lol xD
“Im reaching under the couch~” ‘THATS STILL MY SIDE OF THE COUCH!’
Also: Jack is such a jerk that he changed his name to Jeff. Ack!
I love how you draw animals, but you severely need to learn to draw people. LIFE DRAWING IS YOUR FRIEND! ;D
Anyone else reminded of Bill Cosby’s ‘To Russell, my Brother, Whom I Slept With’?
my brother and i did something similar except it was “dont look out my window”
