i noticed that this comment of yours is not relevant to the current comic. shouldn’t you, in accordance with your own rules, post it to the forums?
(also, people who post the mouse-over text do so for a good reason: on a phone or tablet or other non computer device, the mouse-over text cannot be read. it is in the comments to make it possible for people who use these devices to read the comic to enjoy all that it has to offer.)
note that rules and regulations like you posted here are not necessarily the best thing. I can’t speak for others, but i read these rules and thought “seriously? there are rules? we have to keep everything on topic? there are people watching the comments and making note of everything we say for anything that ‘counts against us’? i’m not even gonna bother posting here then.” too many rules and rules that are too strict can only so more bad than good. i understand why you posted this. people are jerks when they get to be anonymous. they troll, they fight. i get that you want to prevent this, but i think that this is not the way to do it. (especially because you can type whatever you want into the email slot and it will accept it. this is not my email. it is random letters at gmail.com.)
The rules are always relevant. We post them so people know what’s expected of them, since it’s possible to be banned for serious infractions. Wouldn’t do to have them secret, would it?
As has been said innumerable times, it is okay to post the alt-text as long as you have something to say about it. We don’t want everybody posting it because it degenerates into a twisted competition without purpose.
The entire purpose of this comment section is to provide feedback. Talking about the latest Transformers movie doesn’t tell Rick anything about how people receive his comic. It’s not impossible to have rules and fun. For discussion of everything else (and even the comic, too!), the forums are right over here.
wait WHAT??? i didn’t give you my email how did i get a notification about that O_O
you are clearly more clever than you let on.
As a mod, he has been given powers not available to mere mortals. For example, I will assume for the sake of discussion, that on your previous comments on the site, you provided your real email adress. If that is the case, then Dissension merely had to look at your previous comments to get the email adress. I am also assuming that a mod can look at the email adress that was typed.
This is the most epic ending ever.
To the escape dinghy!
It only proves that anything Peanut is in will be epic!
will be? don’t you is?
Was, is, and always will be epic
That sums it up
Could be it we even have ever more than was?
Until Peanut comes in, everything else seems normal!
It be could have even than more was be.
Wait, what?! Also, I am glad to see another doctor who fan on the site. *looks at tynach*
Recipie for epicness: just add Peanut
lol good one
you should get a Rick award!!!
How are you almost always the first to post?
I just type fast. When I’m posting the rules, I edit the post time so it’s always on top. And with that, let’s get back on topic! *giggles*
Can you tell I’m Lelouch? I changed my name.
You Manipulator! Messing with time and space just so that your comment is always first!! lol :p
. Cheater. :b. Anyways, PEANUT IT SO EPIC RIGHT NOW THAT I DID A SPITSHOT WHEN I SAW THIS AND NOW MY COMPUTER MONITER IS ALL WET WITH COCA COLA, NOT PEPSI, COCA COLA.
Well, he was often first before becoming a mod, so yeah, he types fast.
Copy, Paste. No need to type fast 8D
Which would imply he knew the comic included the words “escape dingy” before it was posted
Dissension is… good at guessing?
It really is the only way to end
No kidding. Only thing that would have made it more epic is if…
…Nope, can’t think of anything
Wait, now I know how to make it more epic:
An epic one liner as they walk out
Agreed! This comic was joy in a hand basket… well, in a manner of speaking.
This comic was an epic epicness of epicness, in comparison, mere epicness would be non-epic.
Everything is more epic with either dark sunglasses and explosions. Everything is EPICALLY more epic with both dark sunglasses and explosions.
All that we need is a short catchphrase.
I second that.
Awesome last panel! Its great!
It reminds me of Men in Black. The sunglasses… exploshion… where is the mini-gun!?
Really? I’d say the ending looks close to something like Hot Fuzz
I was thinking more along the lines of “Cool guys don’t look at explosions” by the lonely island…XD Though, in this case, its exploosions.
Peanut’s always got you covered
I posted this below but…
Peanut’s got you covered when State Farms doesn’t.
also anyone ever notice Peanut’s initials are PBS?
Congratulations! You have made my new background for my laptop, and you have made it exceptionally EPIC!
Thank you Rick.
And that, kids, is called SWAGGER.
Oh don’t start that
It’s super effective!
Well… Keene got a small boat whose name can be used a tastless pun, which I can’t say here or I will be spammed, but the rabbit, the cat, and the dog got a awesome end shot… that’s 2 things we’ve learn that money can’t buy.
This is the most cliché ending ever :/
This is me Lelouch Vi Brittania I just changed my name!
If you can’t tell, IM USING SARCASM!
This is as epic as the Matrix Reloaded!
The Matrix: there should have been only one.
There is only one possible Matrix sequel that wouldn’t have sucked.
Scene: They’re in the cybership, fighting off robots, something like that, and Morpheus looks at Trinity… “I don’t know if Neo’s ready yet, but we’re going to have to move on.”
Neo looks confused… “What?”
Morpheus: “Do you trust me?”
Neo: “I guess.”
Morpheus: “No, DO YOU TRUST ME.” (awesome deep serious voice)
Neo: “I trust you”
Cut, with whatever special effects make sense, to a new scene. Neo’s lost his hair again. M and T are helping him out of some sort of crude cyberpunk box in a long row of similar boxes. There’s a ruined city in the background.
Morpheus: “Welcome to the real world…”
I agree. That would’ve been a great sequel.
Let’s talk more about the comic and less about movies. : )
Why’d you change your name? =/
…to keep this on topic…
…why’d you change your name like grape?
Cause I want to!
Fantastic work. Sound effects definitely stealing the show this arc, however.
I love the exsplooshion sound effect.
I still say awesome nod is better
It will be a while before anything beats awesome nod.
Deal with it *sunglasses*
I love when you bring an good joke back to life. =D
And I thought awesome nod was the best sound effect ever. I stand corrected. EXPLOOSHION is now my favorite word ever to exist…ever.
Hey Rick is this the last one? Or is there more?
Two more! Ends on Friday
Ok then ♪( ´▽｀) ♪it’s almost over I’m so sad♪
But that means we get to see a series of one-offs then another epic arc
Actually I’m just being musical I’m not ♪sad♪
And maybe some King.
So are we going to find out why she (apparently) never told Max about what she was doing?
Because she was the double agent, duh.
Actually, wasn’t it a triple agent?
Though, I suppose to Max, she would be a double agent.
Zach was the triple-agent.
However as I said before Max clearly didn’t care if there was one and its not like Grape seemed to care about the war anyway she just wanted to get Peanut back (and was actively trying to stop the war by doing so) so it doesn’t make sense she would not tell him (plus the fact they’re dating and everything)
Cool, I’m happy to see how it wraps up!
As in end of the series?
Like a boss
i bet peanut plays video games *slowmotion* like a boss
Ok I gotz to know the alt text on this one
Alt text is “guitar screeeeee”
Thank you kind sir
Not a problem ^^
I have to say I love this arc! Cool char building for Zach in a very humours arc is a pleasant and entertaning change!
Totally epic ending! And oes anyone see “The Matrix” in the last panel?
oes = does, stupid typo ><
Is this a matrix or CSI: Miami ref?
Most probably not any specific reference. Cool guys never looks at the explosions in action movies.
I think it’s the Matrix, mostly cuz of their straight faces and the sunglasses, but it might also have some CSI in there too.
Like Avansis said, it’s more a general action movie convention, that the heroes walk calmly and unflinchingly away from explo(o)s(h)ions while looking cool.
Not everything has to reference a specific work, you know.
I agree with Avansis on this
*･゜ﾟ･*:.｡..｡.:*･’(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)’･*:.｡. .｡.:*･゜ﾟ･* is there anything as cool as a PG rated comic about Cats and Dogs?
A PG-13 comic about cats and dogs?
… I guess world peace.but that would be boring :/ .
I can think of a few.
you mean like bittersweet Candy Bowl? thats my new word of the month, gonna annoy everyone at work with it.
I love BCB I have a account on their forum!
If you go there I’m Tensa Zangetsu
On topic 3-2-1 BOOM
Let’s get back on topic.
I’d say “3-2-1 Boom” is very on topic
A PG rated movie of housepets comic!!!
Give me a flu vaccine and a year and I’ll give it to you
Do you have the flu? =(
if so, get well soon. =)
wish I could send a vaccine through the internet. =/
are you serious about making a housepets animation? =)
I’m sure every one would love to see one. ^_^
if you’re making one… include this epic explooshion, please. =D
Every Michael Bay movie ever.
THE UNFLINCHING EXPLOSION WALK.
I can only imagine Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” playing in the background as they do that. XDDD
Or the theme to CSI: Miami, or “welcome to the jungle”, or “oh no you didn’t” from Mercenaries 2
i think of CSI: Miami playing
♪ Cool Guys Don’t Look At Explooshions ♪
♪ Like a BOSS ♪
♪that is soo true! It’s way more epic that way♪
♪when you walk away, you don’t hear me say, Pease, oh baby dont go. Simple and clean is the way that your making me feel tonight. It’s hard to let it go!♪
Be careful of blacking out in the sewer, because you know what you’ll find when you awake….
Pfft what? Am I going to meet a giant fish? yeah, right.
LIKE A BOSS.
only peanut is capible of something so cool, besides tarots projection power that is
Well that was awesome.
Looks like Keene’s plans are all washed up.
He’s gonna have to flush this mess!
Either that or the butler will have to.
shoudln’nt it say PAWPRINT and not handprint?
You have a good point.
He probably just wants to make it clear he doesn’t mean his feet
Except that, functionally, it’s a hand, not a paw.
They do have thumbs, but they are paws all the same.
Now thats one of the ways to end it with style!!!
That’s the only way to end in style.
I would say I could have expected as much.
Epic water explosion, if it were fire though it wouldent really fit
I stand corrected, epic water explooshion.
wait where did peanut come from???
Probably found while Zach and Keene were talking. Standard webcomic compression of detail type stuff.
I had an explanation
And thus a tidal wave was unleashed… not just of water, but of people cropping that to make new icons.
Ahhh, i’m trying. It wont crop right.
Rick, do you think it might be possible to take the last panel and make it into wallpaper material? With or without the “explooshion”, the format practically screams out for a wallpaper designed for widescreen monitors.
YEESSSSSSSS!! XD *high-paws rick*
I want a *high-paw* too!
Yeah high-paw! -waits-
…. -stands there alone-
Eh… well, this is awkward…
I JUST realized that I was right about the cats borrowed a V2 boomer from the ferrets to drop that mega-baloon
so I’m going to assume the bombs were water bombs?
I mean remote-activated-water-balloons???
who cares, SUNGLASSES FTW!!
Rules of Coolness 101:
Cool guys don’t look at explosion
Rule2: Cool guys never finish Last
Sorry.someone had to do it!
Rule 3: Breaking a cool guys cool shades is reason enough to be punched in the face.
Rule 4: Cool guys don’t care about the Rules of Coolness… they don’t care about any rules at all.
Rule 5: Cool guys ALWAYS carry an extra pair of sunglasses, just in case of Rule 3.
See: Rude from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children for a perfect example of this and rule No. 5.
Let’s get back on topic, please.
Que the song: Cool Guys Don’t Look At Explosions
Only cool people walk away from explosions, thus proving Grape, Peanut, and Zach are cool.
Grape isn’t a guy.
Who said that? I mean really, everyone here KNOWS Grape is a girl
…..Guys? I’m right, right?
Yep, I saw those eyelashes XD
“Keep walkin, keep shinin’! Don’t look back, keep on walkin’!”
*bricked for obscure reference*
lonely Island. not that obscure.
So a cat, dog and rabbit are walking away from a explosion.
THAT WAS AWESOME!!! great comic, really freaking great. but it does bring up two questions, where’d Peanut get the sunglasses? and why did the milton manor have a self-destruct button? x3
This is a strip-mall, not the Milton residence. Keene was just using it as a base of operations for his scheme.
So he just blew up a mall? Eh, whatever. He’s rich.
yeah, he can afford it anyway, lol
OMG this just reminded me of this!!!
I’m speechless. That is so cool! And it’s not even the end yet XD
thats all im gonna say…
Oh come on Keene can’t be THAT sore of a loser. XD
BTW I can’t get over the fact that these sunglasses things are getting overdone… although they’re still as cool as anything. :p
That is the wettest EXPLOSION ever.
Plus, it’s in a mall. Right? What about the rest of the mall?
It’s must have been flooded! Or was it¿
Take your logic and leave>:/
I can only guess the spoiled little slinkrat bought the whole place.
Ferrets are not rats! Rats are tasty snacks!
But they do love slinkies; therefore, slinkrats!
We regret to inform you that your plan did not proceed as intended to its fullest extent. Please push the big red button and advise all personnel to evacuate to the small dinghy located outside of the building. This message, and the building, will self-destruct.
I want this as a poster
And so, once again, the day is saved, thanks to… what ever it is. XD
So… In the last panel, is that water from the explooshion coming down around them, or merely rain as a result of the roof explooshing, or maybe both? XD
Also, I predict epic avatars.
GAAH! It’s so loud! How do those people in movies (and comics) always walk away without bleedin’ ears!
Gaaawww, nooo Keene!!
And leave it up to Peanut to always bring something random in to the picture and save the day in a weird way!
I gotta beg but can i get a wallpaper of that last one. its so cute
Cool guys don’t look at explosions!
Don’t look directly at it! It awesomeness will melt your eyes
Yes. Just plain yes.
Keene has a giant closet full of these glasses
…But that’s already been established.
Second panel, whats that to the right from the “oh my god big red button” ?
It’s the lever he pulled to make the button appear, it appears to be disguised as a pen.
Its a great big threatening red button which must never ever be pressed under any circumstances whatsoever! *Looks around and presses the button*
Does anybody know what I quoted just now? I wonder if anybody will be able to name the source material…
Cool pets don’t look at explooshions X3
=’D last pannel sould sooooooooooooo be made into an desktop image ^^
Oh, and ker-avatar!
Tweaked you say?
Yes, it is clearly photoshoped cuz………
Grapes tail is missing!!!
Pfft, it was obviously her ear AND tail…
I mean… no, I didn’t tweak the picture…
….Not with Photoshop at least
Scratch that it was only part of her head…
Not that I edited or anything… pfft you’re silly
Tweaked to get them closer together so they fit in a square.
Best ending to an arc ever.
But is it?
Never would have thought these three would make such an epic trio.
Instead of a guitar scree, I imagined the electric violin and electric cello music from The Book Of Eli.
Cool pets dont look at explosions. Just like bender said in an episode of Futurama:
“Woah, he’s not even looking at that cool explosion behind him!”
´Cuz “Boooom” didnt work…
Explosions don’t go “boom” in the housepets world. Even Peanut and Grape know that!
Explosions Are Always Cooler When Someone Slowly Walking Away From It.
Don’t forget the sun-glasses.
Walking away makes it cooler…
…but walking away with sun-glasses makes it EPIC! =D
Aye. That He Does. *Puts On Sunglasses* ……Ffffff- Wrong Glasses. *Puts On Prescription Sunglasses*
I finally figured out how to comment!!!
Seriously, I checked this website about a million times in the past 10 MINUTES and it wasn’t updated, and NOW theres already like a BILLION comments!!!! Lol
Epic, epic, ending. I love how they’re just looking around, all serious looking. Like, “oh yeah”
Keene HOPEFULLY has been filming this. “THis is 3D GOLD!”
So first comment hmm, welcome aboard.
giant water explosion+ Peanut, Grape, and Zach+ sunglasses for all+ rain= EPIC WIN
OK, here’s my prediction for the next two strips: the whole war turns out to be a Rock Milton Production.
Argent, did we reply at the exact same time and thus break the comments?
No, the comments were broken by people replying to messages that have been deleted, or that are replies to messages that have been deleted.
Well, Rick, I hope you were prepared for the flood of memes you were going to get when you made this page.
Other than that, the only thing I have to say is…
everything should end with an explosion and sunglasses
Aw… I was still using that universe
So cliche, but so perfect…
And everything’s cooler with sunglasses
I guess they really
Rained on his parade.
also, they are walking out into the rain, with sunglasses. XD
“It’s half a mile to Peanut’s house, it’s raining, and we’re wearing sunglasses.”
“I wear my sunglasses at night so I can so I can……”
Sorry, born in the 80’s
I was born in 1996. And I love that song! I wear my sunglasses at night, so no one can see in my eyes. I wear my sunglasses at night…
Peanut obviously has a phd in being awesome!
“Because when you’re cool, the sun shines on you 24 hours a day.” – Vincent Latello, My Science Project
I guess the three of them…
… couldn’t handle Keene’s junk
(it’s a type of boat)
That ending is so cool. Definitly is one of my favorite arcs from now on.
I´m Bon…Peanut Bon **cool**
I believe his name is Peanut Butter Sandwich good si- oh… you were making a joke
that is because the bon is between the butter and the sandwich, but nobody knows
Peanut makes me proud of said name. Enough said.
Black glasses? Done. Awessome explosive background? Done. Walk away with style?…..frigging done!!!
and we end with a bang matrix style
Cool guys don’t look at explosions, who’s got time to look at explosions!
the glasses just keep getting darker and darker!
*music* cool guys don’t look at explosions, they blow stuff up and they walk awaaay. Cool guys don’t have time for explosions cuz they have cooll guy errands that they have to walk to! *end music* watch some lonelyisland vids on youtube for reference.
Reference already made. I just had to though
‘Denzel walks, Will Smith walks… Mark Wahlburg, is wearing a hat!’
Alright!! xD They goes out in slowmotion and background exploding and there’s a gangsta music. xP
Thanks to the internet all I see in the last panel is a big “Deal With IT”
I can’t believe no one else has used the last panel to make an avatar yet.
Someone should make one of a headshot of Grape
Of course, as soon as I made my comment I saw that one.
Cool people never look at explosions.
Last panel is like the best housepets panel ever
Is you avatar when King asks when he is going to be transformed into a dog sarcastically?
has anyone noticed that grape looks like shes embarassed?? in the last panel
How to make Epicness
1 Rick Griffin
Start by mixing the Rick Griffin and Housepets! in the bowl. Then proceed with carefully sprinkling some Peanut on the top., and remember, there can never be too much Peanut. Now, without mixing further, add two large spoons of explosion. Salt to your taste and put some sunglasses on the top. Mix it, and let it swell for two hours. There! Your very own Epicness!
For extra taste, try adding a few spoonfulls of Grape, or maybe a glass of some Zach. But remember, if adding to own taste, don’t use any Bino, because it’ll ruin the taste of Peanut.
Anyone hear The Who as they leave?
… that awsome last panel should be a wallpaper….
