“Unbridled hedonism”, indeed. x3
Can we agree so that the first commenter would reply the alt to himself ? please
How about commenters don’t get to make up the rules
Sounds good to me.
i was just asking -.- what about those people that cant view the alt from phones like me… Oh And nuuu rick isnt happy with me
you ask, and it shall be answered.
Well, people tend to post the alt text anyway. But you can’t really expect the first poster to do it by himself; that’s silly, unenforceable and would probably make some people unwilling to comment if there was an extra layer of etiquette on top of the rules there already are.
Speaking of the rules…
The rating of the comic is PG; your comments should not exceed that rating. This also means you should not use profanity. Attempting to bypass the profanity filter will count against you.
Your comments should be relevant to the current comic; please take all off-topic discussion to the forums. You should not post “first,” “lol,” or any other one-word response that does not contribute to the conversation. Do not re-post the alt-text unless you have an actual comment to go along with it.
Do not abuse or belittle other posters.
Don’t correct others’ grammar or spelling unless they specifically request it; this is annoying and downright rude. (This is not an excuse to use intentionally poor spelling and grammar.)
Don’t post spam or advertisements.
Do not under any circumstances argue with, ignore, or impersonate a moderator (or Rick, obviously).
Comments that violate these guidelines are subject to deletion. Repeat offenders and those guilty of serious violations may be banned without warning.
Lol, nice timing there, dissension.
I agree, the alt. text really explains a lot sometimes, but mostly it’s just funny :3
Alt Text: “Money can’t buy happiness, so I’ll just buy the misery of others”
Well, I have to say the first panel did make me miserable, but the punchline was more than enough to make up for it
don’t be sad frank…you can come and talk on my satphone in my jello filled swimming pool if you want :3
Id say money CAN buy happiness, but not much of it.
You can still have both money and happiness tho! Just don’t let it go to your head
lol god I love the Ferrets they are always so wacky XD
mmmm grape flavoured gelatin
Wait, HOW Keene managed to bring this phone at the middle of a swimming pool?! Ô_o
he walked. it is gelatin, after all. or he kept it on the floating chair.
S’best to just go along, if’n you ask me. Comic rules, and all.
Pool filled with gelatin= Epic Win.
The best part of it all is that everything will be fine in the event of an earthquake.
nope it equals a epic moment in derp history
YAY, WEALTH!!! of course, I’d go for an orange soda pool. of course, the ferrets would become intoxicated and drown, so this is probably for the best.
No, that would be a… uh… sugar rush! I mean, nobody gets intoxicated in this comic! *wink wink*
Though an orange soda pool sounds delightful…
I chose that word specifically because it is okay.
Ah, I stand corrected. You’ve done your research. However, death doesn’t sound like a fun theme either.
they can drown and be resuscitated. they don’t have to die.
They’re Milton Ferrets. If somebody can blow money over a resurrection system, it’s them.
Gelatin pool sounds fun, but it wouldn’t work. You’d just sink right in.
Why not ? They were swimming on those things and eating gelatin. Win
WE would, ferrets wouldn’t.
Been watching Mickey and the Beanstalk, haven’t you?
I wouldn’t care for a pool filled with gelatin, but I want a chocolate fondue jacuzzi NOW!
Hedonism is fine. It’s when unbridled hedonism gets to their heads that all heck breaks loose.
There is nothing wrong with their money spending in my eyes…jello filled swimming pool, who wouldn’t?
It’s gelatin. Jello is a name Brand.
Pretty sure they can afford to buy the name brand…although for copyright purposes having the generic is best.
Notice, however, I said Jacuzzi anyway
Chocolate Fondue Jacuzzi!
So weird wishes…
Go for it Ferrets!
If I had a coat of thick oily fur and chocolate was poison to me I would probably not go for the chocolate jacuzzi. Just sayin’.
I thought the same, but if thew want… they can do everything…
Ok, they can’t travel to another dimension… wait… I think this is something possible buying a Stargate…
Hmmm… Let’s see if this is possible…
Didn’t Peanut do that in “we’re snowed in”? I doubt money could buy that method, though
“Jacuzzi” is trademarked? What is this world coming to?
the proper term is “whirlpool tub”
They don’t want people to xerox their ideas.
Whoa, it’s okay. Just take a tylenol and lie down for a while.
okay, but first I have to go blow my nose with some Kleenex.
Isn’t Whirlpool also a brand name?
It was a word first.
you all know what i mean. i don’t have to be politically correct all the time. i’m not gonna call velcro “hook and loop snaps” i’m gonna call it velcro dang it! (as a specific example)
It’s like in the south (of USA) that we say “Gimme a coke” when we mean soda/cola/pop/carbonated sweet drink of choice.
so true I never say the name unless there are a lot of options but most the time I ask for a soda .
on another note I want a pull full of pudding that would be so much fun. Lol what If Grape swim-ed in the pool would it start a time paradox?
And remember Keene’s the one who doesn’t use ALL his money for self-indulgent purposes.
great to see that wealth hasn’t changed Keene…and a chocolate fondue jacuzzi sounds like a great idea
Won’t that kill him but make him oh so tasty?
And afterwards a Peanut butter and Grape Jelly “mud bath”
The problem is… fondue is hot, so hot… Who will resist that?
maby they put ice cubes near them to keep cool x3
Steamy bubble bath, anyone?
it’s probably that pet-safe chocolate, like peanut had that one time during the snowed-in arc.
as for the not insignificant heat of melted chocolate… i got nothing. i’ll just chalk that up to rule of funny.
Yanno…. I think that Keene is my favorite ferret. ^__^
Well, almost had another guest appearnce from grape jelly sandwhich in a ferret strip.
Cool, a pool full of gelatin. And to think it’s olympic sized.
How do I keep forgetting that the ferets are that rich?
This little scene reminds me of a much smaller scene from a movie called Scarface… Hope not get in trouble for saying the tittle of that movie.
In other news, it has been a long time since I last saw one of the Milton family members.
It could be worse. They could have filled it with dead mice….
ewwww that would be disgusting
OMG Cats everywhere! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! D:
The new inking makes him look so fluffy.
I like the ink style! It’s extra neat, so they look nice
Aah, I kinda forgot about the new inking style, it DOES look nice :O
And I want to tickle his pink footpads.
My cats get all offended when I do that.
What’s scary is that, judging by your posting times, you actually tried it
I wonder if the background statues are Keenes.(i mean that they’r Keene’s body form) xD
Olympic-size pools are awesome
I just remembered the chocolate Jacuzzi from “All That.”
I hope he means grape-flavored and not, y’know, Grape-flavored.
pool filled with gelatin=epic moments in derp history
After you swim in gelatin, how would you clean yourself?
Ehm… With… The erase-gelatin they bought before? xD
Well… They are still animals… They can… You know… *slurp*
Well, Peanut could do it without any problem!
Depending on how strong they made it, you might not be able to swim in it. Ever made up a batch of jello and didn’t mix it up completely, so there’s this leathery skin across the top?
Is it strange that I’m hungry now?
Is it strange to reply a weird comment? I recommend you to don’t make any comment like that again…
there’s nothing wrong with his comment…. so please stop acting like a mini-mod and leave him alone
and no it isn’t strange it makes me craving some jello XD
Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t get it… I get it now that I think… Sorry if I offended someone!
I only tried to help… I’ll shut up next time
You stop mini-modding, too. We’re capable of doing our jobs, thanks.
The ellipsis is because he’s trying to avoid saying “tastes like fur”
haha, see I always feared Gelatin Pools b/c I would fall to the bottom and drown… in Gelatin… I think thats gotta be worst death ever.
nonsense just eat your way out!
He should’ve filled it with custard!
Because, y’know, the ability to walk on custard is awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4K8r9OUIBM
Homestar reference, anyone?
Home what now? O_o”
Why is this a Homestar reference?
In the email ‘winter pool’, they fill their swimming pool with gelatin.
It’s the Roman empire all over again!!! Catastrophe is upon us! O_o”
BTW I’m not sure if it’s a good thing wasing all that sweet-SWEET chocolate for a jacuzzi… at least I wouldn’t try it after a bath. XD
they’re not cats, they’re ferrets!
but ferretastrophe doesn’t have the same ring to it.
Attaboy. Don’t let him weasel out of it.
Wolfin’ down some justice there.
I double dog dare you guys to keep this going
Oh keep what going? I don’ see anything happening, that would be against commenting rules ya know. :”3
I’m actually more worried about their massive waste of food…There are poor kids in [insert poor place here] who want some of that chocolate!
there are non-poor teenagers in the USA who want some of that chocolate. bB
I’d love a pool with jello, but I perfer cherry.
I see where this is going…
I don’t care too
much for money
Say you don’t need no diamond ring and I’ll be satisfied
Tell me that you want the kind of thing that money just can’t buy
I don’t care too much for money, money can’t buy me love
How come some dogs and cats have pink noses, while others have black? Same principle as their fur?
Sort of. If the cat/dog has light fur (white, blonde, grey, etc) their noce is usually pink, while a black, brown, or dark blonde dog has a black/brown nose
It’s all about the melanin.
Since melanin and adrenalin have the same precursors, does coat color correlate to aggressiveness in carnivores? Anyone know?
I doubt it. Though I’m only basing myself on dark, wolf-like dogs that can serve as counterexamples, such as the American Alsatian.
Actually, yes. The genes which control temperment in carnivores also control a number of other traits, coat and skin color being at the top. Domesticating a wild species such as foxes will drastically alter their appearance. In fact, domesticated foxes look, act and sound like dogs.
He could give the chocolate to the poor children of Africa! It would probably melt before it got there, but it’d still brighten many poor souls!
Well Rick! The background looks impressive and i would like to swim in that pool.
Are those solid silver statues of ferrets in the background? Man they are flashy.
No, not flashy, shiny. Ferrets are much more excited by shinyness than by flashiness
…What’s the difference?
I think his power of money has finally gone to his head completely.
i dont know , i think that the grape jelly pool whas just an excuse to cant draw water whit this new methot of drawing (or womething like that)
Aside from a different hue, water would look exactly the same. *peers*
Search water in any of the anteriors arcs , and yuo will find the diference…
You know, I bet it attracts ants…
