    I believe in ya Rick you can fix anything!

    • Tenebraearum

      Queue “Rick Laptop Calamity” montage.

      • Snowmon

        :) Don’t forget the slow mo…

        • T'Renn

          And the gratuitous welding. You can’t have a repair montage without gratuitous welding.

          • JokkePokke

            hahaha, great filler while the laptop’s broken, i love it!

            awesome work Nick, you’ve done it again :D

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            Nick? if you meant Rick, he didn’t even do this one, it’s a guest comic.

    • Shady Kitsune

      Can he fix it?
      YES! HE! CAN!

  2. Tenebraearum

    At least Grape gets to sleep in. =/

    • CalaverX11

      FRACK. My comment below was supposed to be a reply to this.

      I fail.

      • newpain117

        YES, you do.

  3. jacruz666

    It´s all peanut´s fault

    • Snowmon

      Oh sure blame Peanut. All he did was open it. The computer fell apart on it’s own. I say that Bino sabotaged it to avoid the small chance that he would be seen advanced naked. When in doubt blam Bino

      • Horosuma

        Wait, shoot him?

  4. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    I can relate, Rick. My laptop is in for a full diagnostic/fix-whatever-is-wrong-before-addressing-the-software-issues-thing right now. luckily, I have my mom’s netbook as backup, didn’t have anything important on it, and I have very little to do that’s as important as a webcomic.

  5. Snowmon

    I can hear that creepy music from when I was young and the commercials were coming. “After these messages…(clay characters dance a short spin) we’ll be riiiight back!” (*Shutter)

    (x_x) Now this arc really is about being “naked”, just not the kind we thought.

  6. IceKitsune

    No matter how many times I see this comic its still funny. I can make it to Wednesday.

  7. Ilovehousepets

    Can’t wait for wendsday. In before another “woot! Let’s get naked!!!”

  8. The Wolf Kin

    Quite humorous. I declare that today is officially “Blame Peanut” Day.

    • Vlad the Cat

      Nuuuuu

      Today’s officially laptop haters day !

      • netherwolf

        I agree with Vlad,because we all love peanut and know that he did that by mistake…He’s a little lika me,always touching-then-breaking-things. xD x3

        • The Moon Howler

          Dare to blame Peanut and i will bring out the shockgun!

          • Vlad the Cat

            *shows out a shoTgun, and talk with a british voice* THIS is a weapon

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I would have said it with an Australian accent.

          • The Moon Howler

            You just tease me to bring out the bazooka, now do ya?

      • Frank

        There’s such a thing as official Housepets! holidays?

        • Vlad the Cat

          Yes, you didnt knew ?

  9. Russiarules1

    Funny, I saw this comic strip a while ago. I guess Kurui (The creator of this strip) called it, he knew that this was going to happen… I call conspiracy.
    I don’t blame Peanut or the Russians.

    • Russiarules1

      Or me

      • revolution25

        I blame the Iranians.

        • Elwood Blutarsky

          Blame Canada. They had to do something unpolite to conteract the sheer awesomeness of Gordie Howe.

        • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

          that comment could be construed as an inflammatory statement, and will probably be deleted.

          • Russiarules1

            Well, if you are talking about mine, I really don’t care.
            If you are talking about the replies of my first comments, I will still not care.

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            I’m talking about the replies. you said you don’t blame those people.

          • revolution25

            Brent, hush.

  10. DonovanWinters96

    hey, Rick! just to say good luck with the computer, i love housepets! and hope to see it running at full strength again soon!

  11. CalaverX11

    They shouldn’t be complaining.

    Chances are, Grape will get more, better, and QUIETER naps than she’s ever had before in her life.

  12. Kormiak

    *Starts dancing like a cheerleader*
    Rick! Rick! If you can’t fix it……..Somebody better be able to! XD

  13. Kormiak

    Where is my Avy?

  14. anon_omis

    lol, we are breaking the forth wall again

    • The Moon Howler

      obviously…

    • darkgloomie

      guest week is THE place to be to break the fourth wall. After all, none of this is canon so they can do every crazy thing they’re thinking and never doing!

  15. Kormiak

    Ah, there it is! :D Feel free to delete the last two comments, Rick, as I know they don’t have anything to do with the comic………

    • darkgloomie

      … you know, there’s no need to comment just to say “look! my avi appeared!”

      It’s not like mods or Rick or whoever has power to delete comments is just breathing waiting for somebody to make an useless comment and delete it…

      Why, I haven’t had my coffe yet this morning! How did you guess?

      • Kormiak

        I appoligise, I didn’t think that that it was working for a minute so I was wondering, and was surprised when it showed up……..I realise now I didn’t need to do that, I’m sorry.

        • darkgloomie

          yea, there’s a little delay in the changing avatar. Sorry I snapped- I really, really needed my coffee. It’s just that when I see comments like that… I just get easily annoyed, is all.

  16. darkgloomie

    Peanut is just too cute drawn like that- makes me wonder how it’d look if Rick did some strips of chibi!Housepets!

    • Electric Claw

      Now there’s a thought! I wonder what they would look like. I would really wonder what Chibi Spirit Dragon or Chibi Pete would look like…

  17. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Hmnn… Rick doesn’t strike me as the Windows using type.

  18. netherwolf

    Nice,another guest comic strip.Maby there will be another guest week x3

  19. RegularBird

    Daaw Peanut and Grape look cute here, poor Rick though with his laptop and all.

  20. Valerio

    log report #20110328/2424
    patient threw himself from the window. Again.
    Cloning him is becoming really expensive.

    • revolution25

      lolwut XD

      • IceKitsune

        Valerio is just going insane from the wait that’s all. You can make it Val just hold on a bit longer!

    • Frank

      20 million slash 2 thousand? Just how many times has this happened?

      • Valerio

        Oh, no, before the slash it’s the date, and after that it’s the log report. I started offing myself at about report #1341.
        Ouch. My ins will kill me.

  21. E

    Aaaaaaaaaah! Run it the blue screen of death!

  22. Anubis

    Get me a dead chicken and a peacock hat.

    I’ll fix it.

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      could you do it with a dead peacock and a chicken hat?

    • huntersunday

      is Kfc okay

  23. revolution25

    Hit control alt deleat! Or somthing…
    Try restarting it!
    Yeah thats about the extent of my computer knowledge.

  24. Frank

    Has anybody congratulated Kurui yet for making something so awesomely hilarious on such short notice?

    • darkgloomie

      Russiarules1 claims he saw it already a while ago, so it’s not exactly fresh material, but…

      Yes, it’s still awesome and cute and Kurui rocks for giving us something when Rick is in trouble.

      • The Moon Howler

        Russiarules1 is right, i too have seen it a while ago, i think it was put in “a little bit of fanart topic?

  25. anon_omis

    Alt text plz

    • gaboris

      Alt text: This is exactly what happened.

  26. gaboris

    Yeah those darn computers, breaking without a reason… I’d better start getting used to makin backups or I’ll be in trouble one day. XP
    Heh this style is cute, nice job Kurui. :D

  27. Blaze

    Wow, oddly relevant/foreshadowing fan comic FTW?

  28. MYichao

    Computers are dumb. :P

  29. james
  30. ZincChloride

    Sometimes it requires a base ball bat to open that can of awesomeness. XD ….. no, NO! … not on the carpet! —- no clue

  31. FerreTrip

    XD This time, you can blame it on DOG on the keys!

  32. revolution25

    We should by rick an Alienware.

  33. KingNice92

    Are you going to do more Pridelands? It sounds like an awesome series in this comic series.

  34. Hoheh

    Give Peanut some slack. He barely even got to mess with things before they went awry.

  35. IceKitsune

    Well no new comic on Wednesday either everyone. Rick just said so on his Twitter.

  36. Shyannethefox

    hehe even with this style it’s still cute ^^

  37. NickCrotser

    Hmm… I Wonder if I should quickly do a strip and send it into Rick in the event we don’t get the strip in time for the next update.

  38. T-Squared

    Don’t worry! I’ll fix your laptop! :D
