Alt text: Now I’m hungry for some Braum’s.
Heh, your work’s not done, Max!
If there was a panel 5 with your alt text,Max’s face should have been epic
Does Braum’s carry Butterstonch Fripple?
Well… I’M hungry for some BRAUMIN NOODLES! *Puts on sun glasses* YEAAAAAAAAAAH!
What is… oh I left my window up. Great. Thank you, annoying sibling.
That went over my head
Sorry, was supposed to go to the comment above mine
Ah-ah-ah: You’re supposed to put the shades on before finishing the pun.
But that would be invoking the meme. And we already had that spin out of control once
I hereby Invoke the right of Article 1 of the Uniform Code of Meme Justice.
Let the spin cycle return…
(mwah hah ha haaaa?)
I don’t think someone would want ice cream after being drenched in snow. =/
I don’ get it, what’s Braum? -_-”
Braum’s is a burger-and-ice-cream franchise in the Midwest. It is awesome.
Yay for living in Texas and knowing what Braum’s is! XD
Well, I live in Canada.
There’s no Braum’s out here.
I live in England and Braum’s sounds like alcohol…
No fair! Reminding those of us that had to leave the Midwest. We ain’t got no Braums in North Carolina. All they have is vinegar based BBQ. And that is one ice-cream flavor I DON’T want.
Yay for living in California, I guess? No Braum’s, no A&W’s(at least in this county), half of the references my Eastern friends make go over my head…
But hey, at least I can do the same with In-N-Out!
But…. there’s none up here in Chicago area I don’t think…..
the more you know~ XD although I didn’t know that either.
Oh, those snow plows. they always plow the snow into the most inconvenient places.
You could really say the same thing about all the people who keep the roads running.
Pun not intended
there isn’t one. which is a good thing, as he didn’t intend there to be one.
I used “running” seeking another word for “maintained”, but just as I was about to hit “submit” the mental image popped into my head of a black triangle with a dashed yellow line that sprouted legs and raced into the sunset.
I tried to save you from it with those four simple words, but now look what you made me do
*rectangle, not triangle
Ack! Three simple words, not four!
I hate what staying up until 1 AM does to me
not exactly a pun, more an idiom or personification.
You know, if its a pub where you can get Braum’s, then it probably fits in anyway
Thank you Frank. Thank you for ending this pain and suffering with a Pun.
Ooh ouch he got’s you there Max
lol Irony. Oh well more work for Max now
Irony is the root of all comedy.
He’s handling it well. I’d kill someone for no particular reason, Like Grape
DON’T KILL GRAPE!!!!!
yes, I know what you meant, but your wording was ambiguous.
I just shot a man with a gun!
Why did you do that?
I told you! He had a gun!
You did too…
Epic Mafia flashbacks…
Irony is a dish best served
Shoot me, that was bad.
On a side note, I live in an area where we never get snow. so I never get to experience snowing the sidewalk.
It’s freaking hot over here so we haven’t experienced it either.
Can I come over? My driveway is an sheet of ice
Your driveway will not change even if you fly away from it.
Unless his driveway is long enough to take off from!
well I just got a 5 day weekend off of school. I love living where it gets cold.
Yah, except where it gets below zero and the district tells you to tuffin it out
U too a? .I got a 8 days out of school because of the combination “High snow level” and “Some sort of virus spreading”. Cool.
correction, I love living where it has a relatively comfortable temperature range which includes snow in the winter.
and I haven’t gotten off of school for viruses despite a case of whooping cough and a few of MRSA.
the most i ever got was getting the week off because my middle school was flooded with about 2in of water from a birst pipe. since it only happened to my school, we didnt have to make it up
Not even shoveling it?
I noticed it, too. I just had self-restraint.
AAAUYHE- that was an honest mistake.
YOU GET THE IDEA>
One of the few good things about Jamaica.
I grew up in a place where “winter” meant “you complained more about the rain than the heat”. Real winter was an unpleasant shock.
The cool thing about living in Texas is that when it does snow, you can walk outside in everyday clothing and pick up a snowball with your bare hands without being cold.
Like aitch eee double hockeysticks you can.
… i have NEVER seen somebody sound out the letter “h”.
also, i’m calling bull on Expletive deleted.
even in texas, cold snow is cold.
Leinad, educate yourself:
E.D. must be a yankee.
@Leinad: I never said that I could hold the snow for a porlonged period of time. Just long enough to make a snowball and throw it.
@Argent Stonecutter: Nope, Born and raised.
@Everybody who replied: You don’t seem to realize that I was exagerating. And you CAN go out in shorts after it snows. The snow might be cold, but the air is only about 40-50 F, somethimes even warmer. Though now that I think about it, my legs do resemble that of a Wookie, so it might just be me.
Yep, I think it’s just you.
I live in Texas, and that’s an utter lie. We get snow, and cold snow is cold. It’s just more of a powder than snow…
Wich part of Texas, cuz I have a friend out in Lubbock and he sometimes expieriences HAIL during the summer months. Texas is just like that. Different parts have different climates. And yes, Snow is cold, but you can still hold it bare-handed, it only after it starts to melt that it freezes you blood (The water absorbs heat at a faster rate that the snow, which is just ice, does. Think of when you put your hand under an atomatic hand dryer. The air that come out of it is warm, but when your hand are wet, the air feels cold. Its a similar proccess). Its all science really.
Also, I never said that people actually did these things, I only said that you CAN.
Dallas. Sort of.
I will agree, Texas’s weather is extremely erratic and unpredictable.
I love the fact at SoCal that I can walk outside in the morning winter with shorts and a tank top and not worry about being so cold, kinda..
Guess the K-9 squad can take a rest now
Break out the canine-safe donuts and coffee!
Panel 2 heroic pose
I FYTE FUR JUSTIS
4 ALL CATKIND!
BRAUM!!! Did not se that coming
Haha..it would be really funny if the driver was a dog. ” Akward moment “
Heh, Yeah! Seargent Ralph would probably do it.
Wait, don’t you need a license to drive a plow?
A driver’s license I mean
yes, but you probably need a more specialized license to drive a plow that big.
Something like a Class A or B license, I think.
Is it an automobile!
I don’t think Ralph could reach the pedals. “No offence Ralph”
he can always tie phone books to his feet
That…that would look humorous.
…. was i the only one that was visited by a vivd image of ralph wearing Short Round’s hat and driving a snowplow? Yes?
it would help if i knew who Short Round was
Open mouth. Insert, uh, snow?
Watch out for the yellow snow, Its Lemonade!
… Irony indeed. @_@
Ha, I love good irony! Much better than bad irony :/
But it’s a WELL-PLACED irony
Ironically is better when you can make good ironic puns out of it Like………..
Thank you anonymous snow plow driver!
Hamsters are terrific diggers! It’s too bad we have tiny paws e_e;
Ok, why is this guy letting his hampster play on his computer? Btw that would be a good new character(s)
we can’t have them muscling in on the ferrets’ territory. their the cute little tube-runners in this neighborhood.
but still it would be hilarious if someone moved in with a bounch of hampsters.
the ferrets own this neighborhood. they wouldn’t allow that to happen. or would they? maybe one of the ferrets could get romantically involved with a hamster. or all of them could.
now I’m arguing both sides. I feel crazy(er).
I’m sure the ferrets would have no objection to tasty hamsters.
which is why it would be so weird for them to develop a romantic interest with a hamster. Like if Juliet fell in love with pancakes.
and now I’m laughing to myself at the thought of Juliet falling in love with pancakes.
Fido really looked buff in that strip
We had a blizzard last year that got everyone out for like 3 weeks.
And there was a day of snow this week I only went to school Tuesday and that was it.
I alvays shtart de morning vith a large bowl of Raisin Brahms!
Remember, kids! Don’t gloat in the snow!
First he was digging a hole, now maybe he’ll be fixing a hole?
Irony is best served cold. Luckily, snow is already at a ready to serve temperature of less than 32 degrees F!
Braum’s? That’s awesome, there’s a Braum’s in my hometown!
o-o im hungry now too :’D
You do know there’s actually a burger chain in Oklahoma called Braum’s right? They also sell ice cream, so the third panel now makes me want to fly back over just to have like a 1/3 pounder and a cone. XD
And Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Texas:
This kind of thing has happened to me a lot. CURSE YOU, SNOW PLOWS, AND YOUR DOUBLE-EDGEDNESS!! *shakefish*
where did you get a fish?
From the dolphins.
And that children is what we call karma.
That wasn’t a kar, that was a snowplow. Snowplowma. Serve the catma right.
i saw what you did there…..ROFLMAO ROFLMAO!!!!!
I see it toooooo….. hahahaha!
No cats! no dogs! bulldozers are the best diggers!!!
Jajaj poor Max, Now Bino is gonna laugh a lot of him!!!!!
well bad karma i guess!!!
that is why i believe in karma eventhough im christian
So, it’s not just dogma then?
ROFLMAO ROFLMAO the sad part is I can never remember what that means
Karma is killer.
would that earn karma bad karma?
Good question….it’s like asking if a doctor can perform surgery on themselves.
they can, but it’s extremely painful, seeing as they would be unable to put themselves under anesthesia.
I went out to visit a friend in Maine a few years ago, in the middle of winter. When it was his (our) turn to shovel the driveway, a snow plow came through literally right as we were finishing up. He made the driver turn around so he didn’t bury the driveway. xD
why would you willingly go to Maine in the middle of winter? it seems like they get more snow than Alaska!
heh anyone else notice max’s eyes got 2X bigger in the last panel
Thats cause it’s closer
Snowplow guy: Watch out for the cat!
…Oh dang. Wait, he’s okay!
i want to know how the hell that plow was able to push THAT much snow
the answer for everything in the world: MAGIC
MiRaClEs AlL uP iN hErE
Two words: Web comic.
One word, sarcasm
That’s why we have a grass patch between the road and our walk here in Hungary. XD
Wait, do you mean the country?
Yeah I meant the country Hungary… is there somethin else called like taht? O_O”
Oh no! What did poor Gary do?
*couldn’t help it, soz*
u carnt stay mad at well placed irony either xD
Oh god the irony this contains!
Oh the humanity
this is a great comic. i wish housepets! was syndicated in my newspaper.
So, McDonald’s is no longer in trend?
Does anyone see the second ironic thing in this strip?
Raise your more dexterous limbs if you thought of Inception at the sound of the *BRAUM*.
WE HAVE TO DIG DEEPER.
well placed but obvious irony indeed XD
That the fates when of saying “do not gloat, mortal.”
I’m not the only one who’s ever heard of Braums Dairy?
I’m not alone anymore! 8D
The sound effects in this comic are the best *&$%@#ing sound effects I’ve ever read.
Rick is an iron.
Awwww… Poor Maxie….I know only “Grape” can call “Maxwell” “Maxie”…But Ms. Grape isn’t here is she…(sticks out tongue)…cts(chuckles to self)…This comic strip never ceases to be funny….Well at least “Maxie” wil most-likely get a well diserved cat nap after this.
Grape is now sneaking up behind you.
Well I did wake up with sharp back pain around the middle of my back ….but no scratch marks…I guess I must have over did it the day before or laid the wrong way as i slept…but yeah i guess that would be a fear inspiring thought…Btw I have approximately seven or so cats and two dogs a Pit-Boxer and a Goldnen Retreiver mix…but “Grape” probably pay them off with a bag of food or just explain the situation to them…I guess I am a marked man…cts (chuckles to self).
Anyway if it will ease the other fans minds…I will no long use “Maxwell’s” pet name in my post about a current strip that has him in it…
you can still call him Max. also, I guess it’ not a bad thing to name cats after dogs, since that’s the name of the dog in the Grinch
or could be named after my cousin max
or my dog Max. or my neighbor Max. that doesn’t change the fact that he shares a name with a famous dog. the cast page says that it’s also bad to name a dog Sylvester, even though it could be referring to Stallone.
I meant tha tI will no longer use Grape’s term of indearment for Max…Besides this all was out of playful fun…within the set storyline…I…If I was another pet/animal character…I wouldn’t use that term (name) within any proximity of Grape…I mean if she was going to tear King a new one for admitting to flirting with Tarot…then I wouldn’t take my chance with a stupid joke like that…Furthermore how would I explain to her by what means I even heard her pet name for Max…My pet/animals names are Richards (theGolden Retreiver mix); Brat (the Pit-Boxer); and for what I can remember of the cats’ names, Snow/Snowball (A male white misc. breed); Patches/Patchwork (a calico female); Princess (a female orange tabby); Precious (a female long-hair calico); Oreo/Cookie (a male black and white); Morris/Tom (a male orange tabby)..Don’t really understand why I told the “Comment Page” about my pets just now.
I don’t understand why you did that, either.
I was just noting that, when you said you wouldn’t use his pet name, you referred to him as Maxwell. and the “don’t use Gape’s pat name for Max” thing, was a joke.
Nevermind…I’ll just stick to just Max or Maxwell…ok…
apparently, I forgot the r in Grape.
Hope Grape doesn’t tear you apart if she’s behind you.But still..keep an eye open when you sleep ;p
I respect Max and his ability to appreciate irony. Even when he’s the victim.
What will we do without replies!
they work periodically. in case this isn’t one of those time, this is for KingFTW’s 11:54 post
What will become of the replies!?
and i still cant get my avatar to show up!
Try making a gravatar account
HAHAHAHA…..that cold yo HAHAHAHA X3

I wonder if Bino is driving the snow plow…
Hi everyone ^^ i’ve read the comic a month ago or so but will start posting today >:O HP is awsum x3
welcome to the club.
heh thanks ^^ oh btw i dont know english perfectly, still learning it, so be ready for some grammar mistakes :U
i meant everyone, not you particulary x3
I usually correct grammar, but I’ve been trying to restrain myself here. still, though, that would be a good message to address to me.
I dont mind being corrected actually xd
You didn’t address me. I said hi.
Where are you from anyways? I’m from Chile.
I also welcome you to the fun club of posting
Wow! Someone all the way in Chili read this, AND who speaks perfect English!
Hi there Housepets! fans!, it happen just 3 das ago that i had found that awesome comic… to be honest i havent read any good comic in YEARS! just have one thing to say: RICK YOU ROCK!
a little typo there: days instead of das
Wish there was a Braum’s around here, or that I at least could get some strawberry ice cream.
guess what… the game!
It’s funny anyway
My 10:37 comment was supposed to be a reply to Anon Omis’s 7:02 comment (which somehow ended pushed to the end)
odd coincidence that that comment was about a comment being in the wrong place.
and the joke gets deeper, because this was meant to go to Frank’s 4:09 comment.
replies seem to not be working.
no it didn’t
Need some cough drops for that cough?
is that a combination of violently and vile?
