Thank goodness its only ketchup!
I wonder if Catsup is what you’d use to get cats to stick to the ceiling?
Haha, nice. I know that as a young child the multiple spellings caused me a bit of stress, but now I just figure, ah, whatever.
But yeah, good thing it is just ketchup, it makes it really funny that Grape overdid it!
The horror… the salty, tomato-y horror…
Oh God, now it’s official…
DON’T. MESS. WITH. GRAPE!
I thought it was always official?
t’was an unspoken truth. But now it, thy great and mighty truth hath been spoken! Grape shouteth YOU SHALL NOT PASS… the ketchup.
I always wondered what the distinction was..
got a little carried away hmmm i must say cats enjoy playing with their pray, it was only a matter of time before she realized how much fun it was to get CATsup on her
Now I have to silence the ones who witnessed me spreading catsup over the other witnesses.
And so on…
and so on…
I need more Catsup!
You’ll need a LOT of catsup, considering how many people have read this strip…
Egad! Think of how many fries one would need to down all that catsup!
All of Idaho is at risk of a new potato destroying threat…
It shall be worse than the great potato famine of Ireland! OMG
D: omg there bleeding ketchup? :3
and catsup it seems
Tomato in the Mirror, anybody?
CATSUP OR KETCHUP?!
I’ll never know…
TOMATO SAUCE, Y U NO HAVE 1 SINGLE NAME?!?!
Uh oh, in the last frame she’s covered in catsup, not ketchup… THOSE POOR CATS!!!
lol yep Lady Macbeth/Grape got carried away there.
No. She’s just getting started.
I know how it goes when there’s a super-cool Gregorian chant you just can’t join in on. *shakes his head sadly*
I know, right? I mean… this one time they were chanting Pie Jesu and it was all… echoey… and I just couldn’t do anything. It was so frustrating!
Gregorian chant is my favorite type of singing too….
I cant help but feel I would get more of these jokes if I had ever actually seen MacBeth
Well maybe the alt text joke, but I’m trying to make it followable for people who have not seen it.
And we, those who have never seen the play before, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Rick! =3
Google video search macbeth, or macbeth bbc… there’s an animated rendition out there that’s pretty good
Ketchup for him and Catsup for her :p
Out, damned spot!
…seriously, what do they make ketchup out of these days?
Pick your poison.
I’m all for the homemade myself. Just keep that low sodium/salt crud away from me. Taste like sugar coated tomatoes, not like ketchup…
But Spot has not done anything yet. But I think the correct line should be “out Bino Out!”
The same stuff they make hot dogs out of.
No need to ask “what up”, I guess…
Of course, now Grape will “Never be clean, never be clean!” lol.
Sadly, it’s not because she’s trying to wash it off.
I wouldn’t say that yet, who knows how hard it is to wash ketchup (or catsup) out of fur?
Don’t worry I think she will lick this problem.
Why am I not surprise…
Wait, was the jester interlude happens before murder or before Duncan is found dead?
oh no your fine it’s just a little stain there and there and um right there, but it’s mostly unnoticable so don’t worry
Lolol… Who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him indeed… or…
Well Grape and Peanut are small, so a little ketchup/catsup looks like alot
Isn’t there a curse or something to do with Macbeth?
Hm, as far as I know, no curse, but rather a prophecy that turns into curse. Believing everything the three witches say, he kills the former king, becomes the ruler, receives another prophecy that he will be killed by “no man of woman born” (which he takes for proof he won’t be killed, the poor schmuck. He and the wraith king from LotR should really file a complaint about these “twist-prophecies about your death”)
I meant the witch-king, silly me not remembering the exact name
(Also, apparently, Tolkien did the whole Eowin-kills-WitchKing/prophecy twist because he was disappointed Macbeth wasn’t killed by a chick. Heh.)
I actually love those twist deaths like that, seems to happen quite often in older literature works.
I believe vlad is talking about the play version and how its bad luck to use the name during a production, and how it causes all kinds of bad crap to happen
If I recall correctly, it is bad luck to refer to MacBeth in a theater or while you are part of a play other than MacBeth, but if you are actually performing “The Scottish Play” then there is no bad luck in referring to it or its titular character by name.
The last panel always makes me smile there….
OW! Who did that?
Could you also fix my record player?
Be glad sonic got to you first…I had to try and get the brick from the dog…
I was THIS close to getting the frying pan myself
I already had the frying pan. But I was licking bacon grease out of it.
I think it’s lucky that StH125 did it. I know of and have seen a bird with a lacquered mackerel do worse to others on another site.
“Carried away” is not exactly a term in Grape’s dictionary.
I’m guessing they ran out of ketchup and had to use Catsup?
Im surprised no1 has made this joke yet… BEHOLD THE GRAPES OF WRATH
Or Housepets II: the Wrath of Grape
Best joke/comment ever!!
You win good chap! Bravo! *clap clap*
Was the catsup made with Grape Tomatoes?
Ketchup – Catsup is totally from Simpsons. I love the scene, where Mr. Burns can’t decide which one he should take.
Ok other than the obvious play on words, why is it “catsup”?
That is a very good question
Becouse “dogsdown” didn’t roll of the tongue as easily.
You forgot an “f” in “off”
I cannot, cannot, can, not, CANNOT get Dr. Seuss vs. William Shakespere out of my head and RICK ISN’T HELPING.
Well, that, and Einstein Vs. Hawking, but my point is that Epic Rap Battles of History may be approaching the awesomeness of Housepets!, which is why I cannot easily separate them. Surely, no classroom would look like the end of Macbeth if the housepets taught it.
Can I get an Am- a-ammm… muhmuhmuh… muh…? I can’t say it.
Me: Oh mo! You have doomed us all!
Steven Hawking: You’ve got no idea what you’re messin’ with here boy!
Me: Very well said, Steven.
Listen to him. He’s got twelve-inch rims on his chair.
That’s how he rolls, yall.
*Finishes Nomming* …… That Isn’t Ketchup On My Face. -Trollface-
Hmmmm…I think they just wanted an excuse to cover themselves in ketchup. I imagine the parents will have a bit of a fit when it comes time for burgers…
I still find myself laughing at the bags on their heads. Goofy, and yet strangely effective.
Oh boy the good old days when girls were all about flowers and bunnies… Oh wait that looks a bit off. XD
BTW Catsup? Is that just a pun or does it have some kind of reference in it?
Who got ketchup on the living room floor!
Another rainstorm will deal with that.
Next time… Marinara
Ketchup is for calm murders while catsup is for exasperated situations x3
Grape just cracks me up in the fourth panel!
Okay, that was great. |D Also this is funnier from the fact that you can’t see the cats’ complete faces, alone their mouths read more somehow. *snerk* catsup….
Seriously, IS there a difference between ketchup and catsup?
I have an answer! Nothing!!
I don´t like the taste of catsup…I prefer ketchup, especially with french fries.
the look on peanuts face when bino was gonna give him his gift priceless….
I kinda really want those daggers.
wait… so they’re drunk >.>?
Drunk with Ketchup? I never knew such a thing was possible.
no, in the first panel, it says: “after a late-night drunken shindig”
… so they’re drunk?
Well, they are probably just acting like it, i’m pretty sure they aren’t actually drunk.
That part is nothing more then a reference to the Play it self, as Duncan was killed after a party in the original play. They are just acting like AuvaAkita said.
oh… okay :3
That is so what I would end up doing. Crazy chainsaw murdurer with a hook!
That’s hard when all you have is medieval technology
lol Jason in 1500s gettup would be epic
This summer, Jason Vorhees is… MACBETH! *this film is rated R*
I would actually TOTALLY pay to see that movie if it existed!
such win right here
so…yeah.. im amazed by that
also yay i got a avatar
It just hasn’t loaded yet.
Make sure the Gravatar setting is G or it won’t load
I got it!
Did anyone else notice that grapes mouth wasnt colored in the 3rd panel?
She’s clenching her teeth. That’s why.
As for her front teeth, the fangs, they stay in front of her other teeth so that’s why they’re visible
I think not being able to see their eyes makes it funnier.
I get the joke lol
