    Oh Gods!!! @_@

    • huntersunday

      no oh military strenght

      • Lelouch Vi Brittania

        Sarcasticly(wow animals handling weapons of mass destruction what’s next aliens come bearing peace come to only get hit by the ballon and angrily leave never to return) heh sure)

        • Lelouch Vi Brittania

          War really changes people,( or animals in their case)

          • Dragongal

            Sometimes people are animals.(feral i mean)

    • malinik

      *makes nuketown from black ops

  3. Dissension

    Ack, dihydrogen monoxide bomb!

    • Yehoshua

      Just like a dihydrogen Monoxide balloon but with a little more *pop* to it.

    • darkgloomie

      It has proven to be more lethal than radiation on a short time span, after all.

    • Pea

      What’s scary is that this dangerous chemical byproduct of this futile war has been found in 100% of all bodies of water

      • Lelouch Vi Brittania

        Its a tragedy of epic preportions

      • Mettlebird

        OHMYGOSH IT’S A TRAVESTY!!!! …look what this war has done! CURSE YOU, RICK! YOU RUNED ALL OF OUR WATER!!! D:
        Lolz xD

    • JokkePokke

      I KNEW IT!
      Betting the ferrets had their tails in this somehow…

  4. SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

    gotta love a nuke balloon. I’ll call him fat daddy.

    • Ryufire

      That or Fat Cat! :)

    • Chip Uni

      It’s the MOAB!

      The Mother Of All Balloons!

  5. Izander

    Oh my gosh. It’s the Moab

    Mother of all balloons

    • Legion

      Hehe, bloons reference

      • Yehoshua

        No, in Bloons, MOAB standed for massive ornary air blimp.

        • Legion

          Mother of all Balloons is the common misinterpritation for MOAB in Bloons

          • Blaze

            Well, considering in the top down shooter version, it gives birth to hundreds of red balloons, i think “Mother of All Balloons” is more fitting…

          • JokkePokke

            OK, let’s all agree it’s not a massive ornary air blimp, nor is it a mother of all ballons.
            Let’s just call it a water nuke, everybody can agree with that :D

  6. Draven

    i have never seen a better “oh crap” look ever

    • kurowolfe

      Even I have the same look on my face looking at the last panel.
      O_O

    • Knightwolf1875

      Yeah that’s a “OH CRAP!!!” moment. Ah the trademark line from Uncharted’s very own Nathan Drake. I love that line. ^^

  7. Dogs Rule27

    Oh dear. They are not only going to get so wet they will have wet dog smell for weeks to months but this means the cats wont be able to fill their water guns or water balloons.

    • Dogs Rule27

      I hope the Homeowners have insurance. :)

      • Sansash

        I’m a ridiculously huge dirty bomb. Too bad your cut rate insurance can’t protect you from mayhem like me.

        • anon_omis

          The bomber pilot bends over to pick up his googles and, whoops, hits the release button

          • netherwolf

            They had air offense units?And i tought it was a catapult x3

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Of course it was a CATapault.

      • anon_omis

        That reminds me of all the flood insurance commercials ive seen

    • Dena

      You’re under the impression that the balloons are filled with water…

      “I recognize we must make sacrifices to survive … therefore, I am ORDERING you all to relinquish … your orange sodas!”

  8. Grip

    You can tell tat the dogs are thinking, “we are thoroughly screwed.”

    • Grip

      *that

  9. Rick Astley

    tsunami incoming!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Zarvain

    They special ordered from Acme Products.
    The launcher is homemade, otherwise it would have landed on them instead. =P

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      but it should have popped before being launched anyway.

      • Draven

        It’s actualy not going to pop until one of the cats goes and pokes it, then it will pop

        • Snowmon

          Does that mean it wont go SPLOOSH into that mushroom shape with a ring attached?
          (Personally, I don’t know which’d be funnier to see.)

          • Jinxed

            I think the end result will look more like a geyser. Ouch.

        • Legion

          I imagine a more realistic, simple flooding type thing, like the wall on the side of a pool breaking if you understand what im talking about

        • Dogs Rule27

          I actually imagine something like a glass tank with water in it and one side breaking. then the water stays there like the wall never broke and someone’s looking at it like “Oh crap” and the water floods right over them and every where else too.

  11. LegendaryHero

    It’s actually much smaller. It’s being thrown towards their backs at such an angle to make it appear so, at the same time obscuring our view of what they’re really looking at.

    • Caelo

      I think you might be right lets hope what ever the balloon is blocking its funnier than a water based mushroom cloud.

  12. IceKitsune

    My God that is rather large balloon. It must have taken forever to make!

  13. Lelouch Vi Brittania

    Plays sad violin music

    • Lelouch Vi Brittania

      Bring in the cheap towels that no one will really miss

  14. Mukavich

    Or, the cats got the ferrets to fund the thing. Ferrets as arms dealers? I wouldn’t put it past them.

    • Zaahl

      I can see that too, it would be perfect for them.

    • silverfang16

      Well they do have flame throwers.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      That was my first thought. “Military aid from domestic mustelids.”

  15. Russiarules1

    Now I call that an Hydro-Atomic bomb… gawd, I’m bad with puns… can that even can be called a pun?
    I wonder if that water balloon war will end with that huge water bomb? I hope not!

    • Lelouch Vi Brittania

      Supposedly not ( ̄ー ̄)

    • Yehoshua

      There already is a hydrogen based nuclear bomb so…

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Hydrogen Monoxide Bomb.

      • SecretAgent000

        Dihydrogen Monoxide Bomb!

    • Russiarules1

      Water Bomb.
      Case closed.

    • Dogs Rule27

      After flood is over, the dogs r thinking “REVENGE. WE MUST HAVE REVENGE!!!”

  16. Lelouch Vi Brittania

    Can’t wait to see were it goes from here

  17. T-Squared

    Like I said, this is good for absolutely nothing! XD

  18. IonOtter

    The wettening…the wettening…

    • Grip

      Invaders zim is so awesome.

      • Lelouch Vi Brittania

        Gotta love that guy…alien…whatever .

  19. NickCrotser

    As long as Mister Burke isn’t around, they won’t have to worry.

  20. TheHedgehog

    This can’t end well.

    • Dogs Rule27

      Dude. This Definitely can’t and won’t end well.

  21. Snowdrift

    Who the heck got a 25 kill streak?

    • Jinxed

      That’s what I was thinking.
      Maybe you just get points for hitting dogs.

  22. Grip

    Why is Grape tagged? Is she the one speaking off panel?

    • Draven

      as the comander of the cat army, she is most likely making the negotiations with the dogs therefor being the one speaking off screan

      • Dogs Rule27

        yes but i don’t know if i’d call it “Negotiating”

  23. AuvaAkita

    Attention residents of Babylon Gardens! A gigantic water ballon is about to burst and flood the entire neighborhood! Please evacuate immediatly! This is not a drill!

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      a drill would be much worse, because your homes would fall into the hole created instead of getting wet.

      • anon_omis

        Cant…breath!!!

      • SecretAgent000

        …No, a water drill would be pretty ineffective, due to it being made out of WATER and all that.

        • Nohbody

          Actually, at sufficient pressures streams of water can be used to cut metals. Waterjets (or water jet cutter) are useful when the heat generated by more traditional methods of cutting materials is undesired.

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_jet_cutter

    • anon_omis

      It would be like that blizzard melted all of a sudden

  24. dragonbreath007

    Where can i buy one of these?
    ACME?

    • Lelouch Vi Brittania

      ACME has everything, and by everything I mean EVERYTHING

      • Lelouch Vi Brittania

        So..yeah,they would have this

      • anon_omis

        But it’s poor quality

        • Lelouch Vi Brittania

          But people would still buy it because of good advertising

          • anon_omis

            Well then again what isn’t poor quality these days?

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            Yeah sigh people will buy any kind of crap nowadays

          • netherwolf

            How about a radioactive-balloon. Poor quality or what ;)

  25. Pax

    …wait a minute, logically, if the Dogs are surrounding them and are THAT close, then setting off a bomb of this magnatude would soak the cats as well. Not only that, but if you calculate the water pressure inside that thing, set for how powerful the blast is and expand the radius during the initial pop, then most of the neighborhood would be flooded.

    …and I’m thinking of a comic within logical bounderies WHY?

    • Lelouch Vi Brittania

      Because your brain wants a logical answer for everything

    • AuvaAkita

      Cartoons have no logic, or physics either. It’s just fun to try to figure out exactly how it would happen if the laws of logic and physics were in place.

      • malinik

        i say a giant catapult or an anti gravity device

        • Grip

          Hehe, I like the profile pic manilik. You should have included the dogs though :P

        • Dogs Rule27

          An anti-gravity device would work but I’m not sure about a catapult. cuz 4 that u would would a HUGE counterweight.

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      the cats will duck under shelter. unlike with nuclear warfare, ducking under a table may actually help.

      • Pax

        Well, to be fair, if said table is made out of cockroaches, then it MIGHT help you in Nuclear Warfare.

        • Lelouch Vi Brittania

          But what if they separate

          • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

            as cockroaches are wont to do.

          • AuvaAkita

            That’s why there’s SUPER GLUE!!!!

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            Then were good :3

  26. anon_omis

    If they ever had water balloon fights in Fallout, they would look like this

    • netherwolf

      I’d like to see that kinda balloon in Flatout 2

  27. Mystic Wolf

    Who did the 25 wet strike to get the waterballoon nuke? x3

    • megaman64

      It was probably grape

  28. Avansis

    That’s awfully big balloon against only two dogs.

    • silverfang16

      But they are elite!

  29. anon_omis

    Hey, if this is a cold balloon war (nuke balloon) dies that mean that thing is frozen?

    • Lelouch Vi Brittania

      Isn’t it summer

      • anon_omis

        Does it matter? That thing was probably dropped by a V2 bomber on loan from the ferrets

        • Lelouch Vi Brittania

          …you have a point dude
          ☆〜(ゝ。∂)

          • anon_omis

            *bows* I feel like I accomplished something

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            You earned my respect
            *bows back*

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            And that’s saying something cuz I respect no one

          • anon_omis

            Wow

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            Yep no one

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            Well there is only 2 other person I respect and that is god and my father

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            God I have got to stop doing this-
            Please forget what I said

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            Sorry about that I always get carried away with myself

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            Why I do this I will never know
            Its like I can’t help myself
            T.T

          • anon_omis

            It’s ok *pats your back* I know how you feel

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            That actually made me fell better
            But I’m still socially aquard
            Not sure if I can get over that

          • Dissension

            Don’t worry about it! You’re fine.

          • anon_omis

            Join the club. You’ll be fine. I find it best to go with what YOU feel is right

          • Lelouch Vi Brittania

            Well thanks a lot guys
            ☆*:.。. o(≧▽≦)o .。.:*☆
            That was really helpful(*☻-☻*)

          • anon_omis

            No problem

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      if it were a cold war, the two sides would just make bigger and bigger nuke balloons, never using them.

      • anon_omis

        True

      • Snowmon

        It is a cold war, that is unless they leave their balloons out in the sun for a while.

    • Dogs Rule27

      Nuclear water balloon winter!!!!!!

  30. GameCobra

    After Max saved the cats from a devastating grenade attack, it was only natural that Grape be the one to order the annilation of the dogs with a nuclear strike.

  31. CheshireDCat

    Awesome. Epic. Nuke. :P Poor dogs.

    • Lelouch Vi Brittania

      I bet either forfeit or throws even bigger balloon size of moon

      • anon_omis

        When in doubt, escalate

        • Lelouch Vi Brittania

          Almost always works, so GO FOR IT GUYS

  32. A.T.

    Wow…a nuclear water balloon?

    • anon_omis

      Would that make it a heavy water balloon

      • netherwolf

        They’re gonna need quite a big frying pan x3

        • anon_omis

          Huh?

        • Lelouch Vi Brittania

          Ohh I get it haha

        • Dogs Rule27

          I don’t get it either.

  33. Hoheh

    Owned.

    • Hoheh

      I’m sort of surprised he isn’t saying, “Oh.”

  34. Zeoinx

    Nuke it, its the only way to be sure…..

    Does anyone else hear “Neunundneunzig Luftballoons”?

  37. anon_omis

    I just ralized that this is the most ive commented on one of these in a while

  38. Vladimir Zharkov

    Return volley? More like last resort, kill everything, WBMD

    • The Moon Howler

      rather drown everything :D

      • netherwolf

        or flood half the world

    • Vladimir Zharkov

      I wonder if the dogs have anything equally as powerful in their arsenal. Maybe water balloon howitzers?

  39. Nikola

    okay, I can see the ferrets funding and somehow building this thing, but seriously, where did they get all of that water?

    • silverfang16

      Why from the pool of course!

      • Nikola

        Oh of course. How could I be so naive?

    • Draven

      where did they get a baloon that big

      • Lelouch Vi Brittania

        From ACME of course

  40. Tides

    YEEEESSSSSSS! This is the type of epic-ness I was hoping for!
    Plus the first appearance of the dogs in this arc, I’ve been wanting to see them. What can I say, being with the cats for a while just made me curious…

  41. Tendo

    That is the first time I have seen Kevin actually look so worried.

  42. Reconstruction

    You now realize…YOU’RE SCREWED!!!

  43. Hera Ledro

  45. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Good thing it IS a cartoon, Argh, I even was trying to come up on a physics based explanation on how they’d manage something like that.

    Too much studying. >_>

    Ehh, a simple explanation would be that it’s made out of dark matter.

  46. Snowmon

    I think that the Cats just ended WWI. (Water War 1)

  47. gaboris

    HAH! SEE? I TOLD YOU! A water based A-bomb… maybe it wasn’t the ferrets, BUT STILL! XD

    In the last panel, I imagined that it was a regular-sized balloon (in the foreground) which greatly overshot the dogs (in the background), and that the dogs were looking at something entirely different. What has been seen cannot be unseen.

        This goes beyond ka-splash to a level of onomatopoeia that hasn’t even been invented yet, but I’m sure Rick will think of something suitable

  69. King me

    Where in the world did they GET that size a balloon on such short notice? o.o

  70. Lycanthrope

    Someone set up them the balloon.

    This is obviously going to be Wet Work.

    The dogs have met their Waterlog.

    Sure I can think of more, but where is the fun in hogging all the glory.

  73. Elwood Blutarsky

    Never would have pegged Sgt. Ralph as being involved in this. His leadership skills seem outbalanced by that repurposed water-filled blimp the cats just threw.

    • Dogs Rule27

      Actually he does have his own water balloon throwing technique. It’s very simple really. Just strap water balloons all over ur self and . . . TACKLE!!!!!!!!

  74. Elwood Blutarsky

    As someone earlier said: NUCLEAR LAUNCH DETECTED

    XD I can only imagine how the briefing on this one went:
    “Alright, kittens, listen up. This is the Mark 4 Mod 2 Massive Ordinance Hydraulic Blast device, a.k.a. the MOHB. It holds a hundred gallons of water, and will drench everything in a radius of ninety feet. If you’re inside that radius when it goes off, well…” *gestures to SCUBA gear nearby* “You’d better have this on. Otherwise, put your head between your legs and kiss your sorry tail goodbye.”
