Wow I get it now…so slow. Good one.
Hehe, it was a little confusing to me at first but when ingot to the last strip, I noticed it. It was a pretty cheesy joke though (did I say that right?)
I thought it looked like a kangaroo at first
Ditto. I was sitting there trying to come up with a marsupial joke that fit… until I saw the title.
“Oh, and they’re all going to die”
But they will be tasty!
I…. I don’t get it, is it a joke?
He is joking with the word “dear”. That animal is a deer. He said “dear” three times and it sounds like “deer”. Finally she said that she saw three familiars of the deer. Do you get it now?
ALT TEXT: PUN.
Omg… Okay, now I feel REALLY embarrassed…
…I thought it was a kangaroo tho.
What am I looking at?
Deer god I almost fell asleep before seeing the comic tonight, thank goodness for StarBucks.
*accidentaly commented on wrong section a minute ago*
I wonder whats for DINNER?????
+1 internets for that reference.
I can’t tell if the joke refers to the reflection or the kangaroo…
that’s a deer.
I was very slow on this strip…
Buck up son, it’s not that bad, if it took you a day though I would have to ask what is wrong with ewe.
wait, ewe is a sheep, not a deer.
But I love sheep, they are deer to me :[
^^^ that was a win
that was a epic win.
Hey Vocaloid, we need more cookies here!
I think we all were…
I get it now. ;D I thought it was a kangaroo too.
excellent punnage, Mr. Griffin.
I sound like I’m fawning over you.
In retrospect, I think we all do.
of course we do. I was just pointing it out so I could use the fawn pun.
And since you’re the one who said it, does that mean…
… the buck stops here.
No, no! See if you give me a buck then I’d have some doe!
DEER DO NOT WORK THAT WAY
Oh, wait; I get it. You must be troching. D’oe!
Okay these “fawn” puns are what I don’ get… What’s fawn? O_o”
A fawn is a baby deer.
But the puns are the fawnest part!
lol now that’s just silly XD
She should say “Oh Deer, Oh Deer, Oh Deer”
she did say “Oh Deer, Oh Deer, Oh Deer” except not spelled the same but same sounding. so unless the deer can read the speech bubbles, we’re good hehe.
Much more subtle this way.
the cuteness meter is of the chart ;3
I agree with this^
Tarot.. and a deer. What a juxtaposition to King’s mess xD
Not really, if you consider that King’s mess is intricately related with the woodland’s critters prophecy
There’s an interesting thought. Does that possibly mean that Zach is also related to this U&U mess? And Grape? I have a feeling that something will connect all of them together.
Grape was freaking out about Pete being Pete, and Peanut talked her out of it. At some point the other shoe has to drop.
Zach pretty much started the whole mess with “freeing” pete who and we all know is kind of a jerk…
Maybe it’s the way you draw deer, but it took me a while to realize that the kangaroo was a deer.
Oh Dear. Oh Dear oh Dear.
Tarot is cute with that crystal ball <3
Tarot is just cute period, great to see her back.
Isn’t she? Isn’t it?
Haha That was a clever one. Oh, and by the way, are tarot and peanut still dating?
Yes they are.
And I hit the “I” instead of the “O” in my name. Whatever, it’s not my real name anyway.
uh, I am lost, utterly lost, I see that is a deer in the door, but, I am having trouble getting the pun.
“Deer” and “dear” are homophones
Cervid refers to a deer, and she said “Oh Dear”.
Ohh! I get it :3
this made me laugh so hard “lol” doesn’t even describe it
does ROFL describe it (aka Rolling on Floor Laughing)?
Or Perhaps LSHMSFOAIDMT (aka Laughing So Hard My Sombrero Falls Off And I Drop My Taco)?
It might… if I was wearing sombrero and I was holding a taco.
Wait… you mean that when you read this you weren’t wearing a sombrero and holding a taco?
doesn’t everyone wear sombreros and eat tacos while reading web comics?
I guess not. I’ll have to try that, though. seems like it would add to the fun
It would definitely make for some awesome spit-takes!
How can you not be wearing a sombrero and holding a taco while on the internet? This is some sort of blasphemy!
While unexpected, it only made me think “the puns! They burn!”
Here a have a glass of water
or was it hot sauce?
Sorry I don’t get it. Can someone help me :s
Wait I think I got it now lol
he who laughs last last laughs (say that ten times fast!)
and he probably didn’t get the joke.
I’m taking this as an insult… >:(
I wonder if there are more animals like Tarot and Sabrina that could actually read pets’ paws. How would it work? Read the cracks in the pad? Interesting indeed, Mr.Griffin.
*Looks at pads*
Umm this seems pretty dificult to read.
That was a very subtle pun there. I would have helped if I didn’t think that she was a camel though.
“IT would have helped” not “I would have helped”. Why do I do that!
I get it, and its funny!
That took me… Too long.
Not a one-off, but not a new Ark? What do I call this?
How do you know this isn’t a new arc?
Because it does not say Arc 43…?
call it “Meanwhile”
Oh, Rick, you teaser!
Also: Tarot looks EXCEPTIONALLY CUTE today.
I second that statement.
I third that
any nay sayers no good
Oh that is very true she is adorable in this strip
cute… and muscul… *bricked*
I think her head is larger or her torso is shorter than usual.
motion carried, Tarrot looks even cuter than normal
Awesome pun. Though I expected something in the line of the red room “I’d like to have my future read (red),” but that’s just me
Its kinda funny how hard it seems for some of us to grasp this pun XD myself included
Took me 40 minutes to understand… chyort, I am slow!
Not having palms is a whale of a problem.
it took me 24 hrs
Oh Dear! lol. Very funny rick.
I think the cuteness (and the pun) made my brain implode
One word: cute.
i agree man
…. Also, you draw really good ungulates, Rick! Not just here, but everywhere ^^
Ah, I see what you’re doing! Tricky tricky!
tarot Rules!!! also this comic made me rofl
rowdy ricky piper
*sigh* *gets out bucket and cleaning supplies* I’m just glad THIS sight is a PG toon, all gots to do is toss pieces something (I chose washer) and everyone who’s been ’sploding or melting gets put back together.
*sweeps up Shirinui*
Besides, I may need the favor returned one day. ;P
Oh Dear lol
took me awhile to get the joke XD hahaha
also Kangaroo FTW!!
wait… that’s a deer isn’t it… *facepalm*
Aww, poor deer.
Anyone speculate about WHAT she’s being paid with?
It’s a community service she provides for free.
Fans reading about her life Monday Wednesday and Friday
This is not a pun you laugh at. This is a pun you hide under the desk from. Oi veh.
It’s all fawn and games ’till someone gets hurt.
That one made me laugh. Win. Someone get the cookies.
Took me a moment but I get it.
haha thats puny…
Oh BOY… That kinda hurt… hurt. but in a funny way so don’ worry Rick. But yeah I’m never good with puns. No mater that I can understand them perfectly, but they just don’ feel all that natural to me sorry.
BTW I don’ get why ppl think that’s a kangoroo… Okay I understand them, but to me it seems kinda obvious cuz of the lines of the legs and that lil bump behind his neck.
Kangaroo noses are COMPLETELY different
There’s something about your deer, though. The shape of the head is kind of kangaroo-ish.
Naw. If anything, it’s a trick of the coloring. The only other deer we’ve seen in the comic had half of its face white, while of the two kangaroos, one had its chin white like that:
The other deer looked kind of kangaroo-ish to me, and his kangaroos muzzles are almost too broad. Here’s a cartoon kangaroo that looks like a kangaroo:
Except that he’s actually a Wallaroo
Max nix. First, I don’t think there’s much distinction between cartoon macropods. Maybe, if he was a pretty-faced wallaby or something… but if anything, a wallaroo’s face may be a little broader than a red or grey kangaroo… they’re smaller and chunkier animals.
… Ummm… YES also that. I… thought I wouldn’t point out the obvious… or somethin. XD
I miss that show.
This kinda reminds me of Petty’s run. If anyone gets this, they win an Internet.
Also, Tarot looks extremely muscular in this strip, doesn’t she?
I thought the crystal ball was looking pretty swoll
I was impressed by the black pillow in the background
it took me a few tries but i finally got the pun…that was just painful, and what’s more painful is the fact it took me as long as it did to get it! gah! facepalm! facepalm!
This crack me up!! XD. BTW, nice to see Tarot again. She’s one of my fav ;D
your avatar wins this comic hands down
Why aren’t Tarot’s eyes green if she’s using her psychic powers?
I think they only turn green when she channels Dragon. She has her own powers, remember.
She was channeling dragon just to find the TV remote?
Yes, she’s like that. Has she ever used those powers properly?
So when she was Imaginating with Peanut, Grape, and Max, SD was role-playing a role-player role-playing the games-master…
Either that, or she’s just making this up
But seriously, in the above indicated incidents Tarot was using her abilities alone. Perhaps since this is being mediated through the crystal ball, that changes the flashy eye rules?
OH Deer , OH Deer ! OMG !
Jesus Christ it’s a Deer! Get in the car!
Car !? what car !? we have not car !
just run !
We need a guest strip like this XD
This was supposed to be a reply to YuMin28 up there -.- …
Hurray for Tarot , the joke was a derp , but I do hope the comic will go back to one of the plots !!!
Usually there’s a week of one-offs between stories, Rick’s great about them too as he tends to focus them characters other than the normal or most recent ones so they are still great fun.
Generally speaking, I will laugh at the most groan-worth of puns, but this is completelt unworthy of anything. I’m sorry, but that was just… No. It is not good.
I JUST got this
Well, well, well, what have we here?
“Three holes in the ground!”
Hey, hey, hey! It’s three bales of hay!
I approve of these puns. : )
puns puns puns.
They are as as plain as buns.
I didn’t …and probably won’t !!!
when is the next strip gonna be put out ???
Housepets! updates Monday, Wednesday Friday at midnight, Central Standard Time
For some wierd reason, I thought that wasn’t a crystal ball, but her stomach. I was like “OMG Tarot’s pregnant!? Peanut you DOG!” no pun intended lol
lol Glad i wasn’t the only one who made that mistake! XD
Even while pregnant a animal would still mantain their fur color….btw Tarot’s stomach is still light tan…though that would be cute…yet strange, since haven’t seen Tarot and Peanut on a date lately…
actually the crystal ball does look kinda the same color as Tarot’s stomach fur, so I don’t really know how to look at the first panel *scratches his ear* dang bugs, why do they have to pick on me?…… !!! whoops, sorry wandering mind here ^-^;
I guess we all have fuzzy minded moments…cts (chuckles to self)
haha!! so I wasn’t the only one who had that though flash through my mind, that’s good ^-^
I’m not gonna lie, it took me forever to figure this out.
Still pretty funny though
Watches a movie
Eyes widen and tears up “Bambi’s mommy…. WAHHHHHHHHHHHH!” *waterworks of tears*
Don’t change the channel, kids! Animaniacs will be right back!
I sure hope the deer used the proper crossings to get to Taro’s tent…Would not want him/her to get a fine or worse…cts (chuckles to self)… (btw this was a “Deer Crossing” joke)…
If “jaywalking” is the act of not crossing at the pedestrian crossing, what do you call the act of not crossing at the deer crossing?
Cervid Miswalking…I really don’t know but I guess that would be somewhat funny to see a strip on the net in which a Police Animal stops a deer and fines it for “Failure to cross at a designated Deer Crosswalk”…
So why do jays get to cross wherever they want?!
The ability to fly helps
It’s called jayWALKing, not jayFLYing
And what about those zebras?
As soon as the picture loaded I flipped Lolz;D!!!
The Cuteness! The Fluffiness! Its too much! BANZAI!!!!
I’d make a comment but i’m not entirely sure its appropriate for the younger audiences… being REALLY young like oh u know what i mean.
Boy, Bino sure does look muscular, even moreso than usual
uh,I don’t believe that Bino is in this strip. Also you are just asking to be e-strangled by Rick with that comment.
Actually, Rick himself had said that he’d be tempted to use “Boy, Fido sure does look muscular, even moreso than usual” as an alt text or similar because that’s basically what folks end up saying anyway. The almighty 404 is simply taking this idea and running with it by using other characters.
I tend to do that quite often. Taking a joke and running with it. And I think Rick sees what I did there.
Except that when Rick tries to find him, he’ll get a 404 error!
I get a 404 error looking for Bino in this strip.
Yes, but I already did that joke last time:
Rick…what you did there….WE SEE IT
Took me an unbelievably long time to get that joke x.x
At First glance I saw a Kangaroo….You need more Roos in the comic =D I know you want to
Am I the only one that got this joke right off the bat?
I can see why you could see that deer as a kangaroo. Maybe giving it antlers would have cleared everything up.
I got it.
at first i was like “wut?” but then i was like “ooooohhhhh ‘deer’ “
Aww what a cutie!
*facepalm* Oooooooh…XD; Nicely done, Rick.
I see what you did there. }:3
I don’t get it. The wordplay sure, but… where’s the joke?
i love the fangs in the first box
yes high five! *high fives deathcloak*
the inhumanity !!!!
gahhh I had to read it twice to understand the joke *sad face*
I glanced at the second panel, and it almost looked like Tarot was pregnant the way she was holding the crystal ball.
I also didn’t get the joke until I read the comments X3
I see what you did there.
Ohmy. We all going to die! :O
Have you ever stopped to think about the anatomy required for characters to have those huge eyes? Their eyeballs would have to overlap each other inside their skulls and take up most of the room usually reserved for the brain.
…which might explain Bino.
I think they have to not be spherical shape. On the other hand, it’s a cartoon.
I have thought about this also, and it would be impossible if it were real. But then again it ’s just a cartoon, so anything is possible ^^
“hmm i wonder what’s for dinner?”
Tarot: Professional psychic. Dog. Partner of a dragon. AND cute as a button.
since it had to be done
oh da da da dear
OH. IT’S A DEER.
