  1. Kohaku Nightfang

    Lol hubris, really? Is this an actual arc by the way or kinda a running one-shot? I like it either way :D

    • Luffy

      It’s an arc.

  2. rtlstien

    No! He’s going to kill Peanut!
    … or at least his character

    • The Moon Howler

      Nooooo! Someone have to save Peanut’s character!

      • silverfang16

        B-but that is not how the play goes!

        • Tides

          At least Peanut get’s to haunt him as a ghost, that should be fun!

        • Frank

          bah, if Peanut could save Sasso, surely he can save himself!

    • darkgloomie

      YOU KILLED PEANUT!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        You child of a delightful young woman!

        • anon_omis

          I saw what you did there and I applaud your wit and creativity ^_Q

      • Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

        inb4 “Oh my god, they killed peanut!”

  3. IceKitsune

    lol this play is really, really silly and filled with so much stupid stuff when you get down to it.

  4. kimo

    saint hubris,

    priceless

    • anon_omis

      Wait. He’s not a real saint? Then who have I been praying to all these years?

  5. Draven

    Grape and Tarot, that’s a scary combination!

    • SilverZeo

      “So… you have magically powers… and you have a thing for Peanut… does that mean you’re not interested in Fido? You would be the first girl dog that I know who didn’t say FIdo’s name in that girly dreamy manner…. well aside from Daisy…”

      • Draven

        … What?? ‘:(

        • SilverZeo

          Basically what I think the two would talk about if they’re were alone together.

          • Draven

            Sorry. 2am and arguing with people more confused than myself.

      • silverfang16

        I honestly believe Tarot has no interest in Fido.

        • darkgloomie

          Yeah. After all, we’ve never seen her going “God, Fido is so buff today!”

          That’s something reserved to us in the comments…

          • silverfang16

            Of course it is! Just like the yearly bruising of Bino, we have got to have some enjoyments to ourselves you know.

      • anon_omis

        Yeah, the only thing daisy says is “hi I’m daisy”

  6. Yehoshua

    Omigawd Lady McBeth is McBeth’s soldier?! What a twist!
    /bricked

    • anon_omis

      WHAT A TWEEST!!!

  7. A random person

    This is probably the funniest version of Macbeth I’ve seen in a while.

  8. Roadrunner

    Nice Crown.

    • The Moon Howler

      And a nice throne as well. Max… err, I mean… Macbeth has it all!

      • rallyjr

        It’s good to be the King except when you’re paranoid

      • Sansash

        MaxBeth… or Mac-well? ;P

  9. SilverZeo

    Max read The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, or was it Peanut who wrote in the script to show off his booksmarts… to other pets who have only read Pridelands? Speaking of Mariners, I wonder what happened on Keys and Fiddles journey on the river…

    • darkgloomie

      What does it have to do with Max’s lines? Other than the Albatross’ mention (which he could’ve learned in a book about Ornitology or, as he’d call it, “Flying Buffet”), there isn’t much to go on that tangent.

      I’ll admit I don’t know much of the Rime of the Ancient Mariner, but a) it’s about a mariner, b) who’s telling the story of how he and his crew got cursed for killing a sea bird, possibly an albatross but I dunno, c) and in the end we find out part of his curse is to tell his story.

      So it really doesn’t have much to do with Max’s lines, unless I’m missing something

      • darkgloomie

        … Oh, my bad.

        I just checked wikipedia, and it cleared my confusion.

        (for those interested)
        You see, apparently, the ancient mariner was forced by the other sailors to wear the albatross he killed around his neck, and thus “having an albatross around the neck” is a somewhat fancy way of saying you feel cursed of have a heavy psychological burden.

        The More You Know!
        (and now I wish I had a shooting star emoticon)

    • Frank

      They said they didn’t know when they would be back, and then were back in time for The Great Water Balloon War

  10. Someguy

    Looks like soldier grunts get no names. :<

    • silverfang16

      Ah but that would confuse people! Especially if they are only there for one scene.

    • Rick Griffin

      They’re just called Murderer 1 and Murderer 2 in the play!

  11. silverfang16

    Huh, I’m surprised Peanut didn’t insist on playing the protagonist, even if it does end tragically.

    • Tides

      Well, he is playing Macduff, who does get to fight and triumph over Macbeth, so at least there’s that.

      • silverfang16

        True, he could be playing one of the soldiers.

  12. Dororo

    I wish I could do that…..

  13. CalaverX11

    This just keeps getting funnier.

  14. gaboris

    I don’ get it what’s Hubris? O_o”
    … Also I again don’ understand what’s going on. (????: What a surprize. :p)
    What’s the King’s problem? Lineage? Song? ALBARTOS? >_<"

    • darkgloomie

      Hubris is basically excessive pride and inflated ego, but in a way that shames other people- ie you flaunt just how better you are at something and always point out their shortcomings on that field- THAT’S hubris, and it’s one of the worst things one could doo in Ancient Greece (as Zeus was the patron god of hospitality, and shaming guests really doesn’t fly with him.)

      An Albatross is a bird (like a giant seagull, more or less). I’m not sure what’s the reference there, but what happens is that the three Sisters returned sometime before this scene (obviously offscreen) and told Macbeth that yes, he’s the king, but his sons won’t be, but Banquo’s will instead.

      So Macbeth goes and makes his deposing a self-fulfilling prophecy- he’s getting deposed because he’s an unstable and paranoid rules, but he’s unstable and paranoid for fear of getting deposed.

  15. Russiarules1

    I have some suspicions about those paper bags. Are they from Burger King? God, I’m an idiot…
    Hehehe, Tarot looks short… and fluffeh. :D

  16. Argent Stonecutter

    I thought Pete was the patron saint of comeuppance.

    • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

      Pete is far from being a saint.

      • Elwood Blutarsky

        Pete’s the patron saint of being sort of a jerk…and Welsh Corgis.

    • darkgloomie

      Not according to Wikipedia, it ain’t.

      He does, however, play the bouncer to the Great Disco Club In The Sky. Not that it has anything to do with your comment, heh.

  17. WingedWolfGirl

    Joke with your friend about being king and having kings for heirs, then try to kill him off before his half of the prophecy come true. Make sense to me!

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      This is why I never consult ancient prophecies.

  18. Tensa Zangetsu

    … :/ does this remind anyone else of The Highlander?
    *There can only be one!*

    • Indagare

      You’ve got yourself a bit backwards. Plus Macbeth isn’t immortal and won’t shoot off sparks of electricity when you cut off his head.

      • Tensa Zangtsu

        im talking about in a sense!

        • Tensa Zangtsu

          i dont know why, but it does.

    • Chaplin, A PERSON WHO COMMENTS

      Don’t compare McBeth to Highlander. They’re completely different.

      They both just happen to have a ton of European people killing each other.

  19. xhunterko

    And the foreshading of maxbeth’s demise begins.

  20. GameCobra

    Fleeing the country to avoid suspicion.

    What a age they lived in at the time.

  21. FlynnDawg

    Heh… Saint Hubris… I see whatcha did thar Rick, genius.

    btw the alternate text is: “The patron saint of comeuppance IT’S A COINCIDENCE OK?!”

  22. Tommyrazor

    If I could, I would visit this world and have Peanut listen to Good Shive Low :3 Or, just, some other good music.

  23. MrMutt

    before the fall…

    It’ll be interesting to see how this version ends.

    On an unrelated but still House Pets related subject, Mr. Griffin, while I was watching the last half of Hogsfather, I just about died laughing reading a paragraph on the back cover of your House Pets book. I’ve only come across one other book that had such a funny bit there but I can’t remember it exactly.

  24. One-Who-Howls

    McBeth Is Shakespear, Right? I Was Never Good In Litterature Classes. T.T

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Yeah, only much funnier and more understandable here when re-enacted by the Housepets.

      • Tommyrazor

        Oh so very true lol

      • Draven

        It is funnier, but I still have no clue what’s going on.

        • One-Who-Howls

          Same Here. -_-

  25. Grip the wolf

    Hah! There is no such thing as prophecy! Some gypsy said I would “take a trip” today, and I haven’t gone anywhere speci- *trips over a rock* Ow! Maybe Max should be careful…

  26. Matthew

    this just got interesting….

  27. Matthew

    they literate because they have edge quoting one of the old ones

  28. Draven

    St. Hubris, a.k.a.; Lord Payback, Mr. Karma, Sir Comeuppance, Count Recompense, and the Duke of Presumption.

  29. Hoheh

    This arc is kind of engaging…

  30. Ghost

    Haha, this comic is hilarious. :) especially this arc. It’s amusing.

    I know I sound like an idiot, but Grape’s feelings confuse me. :/ I still like Peanut and Grape, but you know, Max is awesome. :3

  31. Tensa Zangetsu

    Well I just got back from the hospital. So basically my weekend sucked!

    • Draven

      My weekend consisted of me punching Hurricane Irene in the face.

      • Tensa Zangetsu

        Wow i watching about that :(

  32. anon_omis

    Wonder how tarot is going to use her powers next
