    Thank goodness its only ketchup!

    • Tynach

      And Catsup!

      I wonder if Catsup is what you’d use to get cats to stick to the ceiling?

      • Tides

        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!

        • rtlstien

          The horror… the salty, tomato-y horror…

      • JokkePokke

        Oh God, now it’s official…

        • silverfang16

          I thought it was always official?

          • Mettlebird

            t’was an unspoken truth. But now it, thy great and mighty truth hath been spoken! Grape shouteth YOU SHALL NOT PASS… the ketchup.

      • Robin Bobcat

        I always wondered what the distinction was..

  2. deathcloak

    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

  3. rtlstien

    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!

    • kurowolfe

      You’ll need a LOT of catsup, considering how many people have read this strip…

      • darkgloomie

        Egad! Think of how many fries one would need to down all that catsup!

        • Zarvain

          All of Idaho is at risk of a new potato destroying threat…

          • Mettlebird

            It shall be worse than the great potato famine of Ireland! OMG

  4. Cerveny

    D: omg there bleeding ketchup? :3

  5. Russiarules1


    I’ll never know…


  6. Yehoshua

    Uh oh, in the last frame she’s covered in catsup, not ketchup… THOSE POOR CATS!!!

  7. IceKitsune

    lol yep Lady Macbeth/Grape got carried away there.

    • Mettlebird

      No. She’s just getting started.

  8. Dissension

    I know how it goes when there’s a super-cool Gregorian chant you just can’t join in on. *shakes his head sadly*

    • VOLK

      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!

    • silverfang16

      Gregorian chant is my favorite type of singing too….

  9. kimo

    I cant help but feel I would get more of these jokes if I had ever actually seen MacBeth

    • Rick Griffin

      Well maybe the alt text joke, but I’m trying to make it followable for people who have not seen it.

      • kurowolfe

        And we, those who have never seen the play before, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Rick! =3

        • Cerise

          Google video search macbeth, or macbeth bbc… there’s an animated rendition out there that’s pretty good

  10. AuvaAkita

    Ketchup for him and Catsup for her :p

  11. Someguy

    Out, damned spot!

    …seriously, what do they make ketchup out of these days?

    • Zarvain

      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…

    • Critter Rhode

      But Spot has not done anything yet. But I think the correct line should be “out Bino Out!”

    • silverfang16

      The same stuff they make hot dogs out of. :P

  12. Snowmon

    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.

  13. SilverZeo

    Why am I not surprise…

    Wait, was the jester interlude happens before murder or before Duncan is found dead?

  14. Tech

    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

  15. Squib

    Lolol… Who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him indeed… or…

    • Draven

      Well Grape and Peanut are small, so a little ketchup/catsup looks like alot

  16. Vladimir Zharkov

    Isn’t there a curse or something to do with Macbeth?

    • darkgloomie

      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”)

      • darkgloomie

        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.)

        • silverfang16

          I actually love those twist deaths like that, seems to happen quite often in older literature works.

    • Jaxon Night

      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

      • chexwarrior

        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.

  17. Wr3h

    The last panel always makes me smile there….

  18. T-Squared
















    OW! Who did that?

    • SonictheHedgehog125

      I did

      • Trefoiler

        Could you also fix my record player?

      • Zarvain

        Be glad sonic got to you first…I had to try and get the brick from the dog…

        • Jaxon Night

          I was THIS close to getting the frying pan myself

          • Mettlebird

            I already had the frying pan. But I was licking bacon grease out of it.

      • Critter Rhode

        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.

  19. Alphonse

    “Carried away” is not exactly a term in Grape’s dictionary.

  20. WingedWolfGirl

    I’m guessing they ran out of ketchup and had to use Catsup?

  21. Magnalicous

    Im surprised no1 has made this joke yet… BEHOLD THE GRAPES OF WRATH

    • Critter Rhode

      Or Housepets II: the Wrath of Grape

      • T-Squared

        GRAAAAAAPE! D8<

    • jjkronos

      Best joke/comment ever!!

    • silverfang16

      You win good chap! Bravo! *clap clap*

  22. Final Byte

    Was the catsup made with Grape Tomatoes? :P

  23. Tibu

    Ketchup – Catsup is totally from Simpsons. I love the scene, where Mr. Burns can’t decide which one he should take.

  24. anon_omis

    Ok other than the obvious play on words, why is it “catsup”?

    • AuvaAkita

      That is a very good question

    • Critter Rhode

      Becouse “dogsdown” didn’t roll of the tongue as easily.

      • anon_omis

        You forgot an “f” in “off”

  25. Trefoiler

    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.

    • Grip the wolf

      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.

      • Trefoiler

        Listen to him. He’s got twelve-inch rims on his chair.

        That’s how he rolls, yall.

  26. One-Who-Howls

    *Finishes Nomming* …… That Isn’t Ketchup On My Face. -Trollface-

  27. My Fate In My Hands

    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…

  28. Devin Parker

    I still find myself laughing at the bags on their heads. Goofy, and yet strangely effective.

  29. gaboris

    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? :D

  30. xhunterko

    Who got ketchup on the living room floor!

    • silverfang16

      Another rainstorm will deal with that.

  31. Z24

    Next time… Marinara

  32. TheCrimsonFox

    Ketchup is for calm murders while catsup is for exasperated situations x3

  33. TheRen

    Grape just cracks me up in the fourth panel!

  34. Kurra

    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….

  35. Draven

    Seriously, IS there a difference between ketchup and catsup?

  36. jjkronos

    I don´t like the taste of catsup…I prefer ketchup, especially with french fries.

    • Matthew

      the look on peanuts face when bino was gonna give him his gift priceless….

  37. Draven

    I kinda really want those daggers.

  38. sonic id furreh!!!

    wait… so they’re drunk >.>?

    • AuvaAkita

      Drunk with Ketchup? I never knew such a thing was possible.

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        no, in the first panel, it says: “after a late-night drunken shindig”
        … so they’re drunk?

        • AuvaAkita

          Well, they are probably just acting like it, i’m pretty sure they aren’t actually drunk.

        • IceKitsune

          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.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            oh… okay :3

  39. Grip

    That is so what I would end up doing. Crazy chainsaw murdurer with a hook!

    • Frank

      That’s hard when all you have is medieval technology

    • YoMan

      lol Jason in 1500s gettup would be epic

      • Grip

        This summer, Jason Vorhees is… MACBETH! *this film is rated R*

        • Grip the wolf

          I would actually TOTALLY pay to see that movie if it existed!

  40. Mettlebird

    such win right here

  41. TENSA ZANGETSU A.K.A Ulquiorra

    so…yeah.. im amazed by that

  42. TENSA ZANGETSU A.K.A Ulquiorra

    also yay i got a avatar

    • Tensa Zangetsu

      It just hasn’t loaded yet.

      • Draven

        Make sure the Gravatar setting is G or it won’t load

        • Draven


          • Tensa Zangetsu

            I got it!

  43. Yuri

    Did anyone else notice that grapes mouth wasnt colored in the 3rd panel?

    • Mr. Random

      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

  44. Derps McSteelflex

    I think not being able to see their eyes makes it funnier.

  45. Mr. Random

    I get the joke lol
