If you watch my Twitter, no this is not BECAUSE I watched the movie; I watched the movie to make sure I got the reference right.
hahahah, I don’t even…
And now Peanut will receive all the knowledge and power of Max.
The paper bag. It GRANTS MAGICAL POWERS.
The paper bag! It does nothing!!!
Why, of course! All the magic got used up the first time!
I do like how it’s smiling. XD
Umm, scratch that.
It’s smiling if you look upside down :3
True, but then the eyes are on the wrong side. 0_0
I’m not sure that’s such an impressive prize!
Wait, that would mean Peanut now knows of Sabrina’s little friend!
Oh, that doesn’t change much, does it?
Oh, the other little freind from the holloween arc? Maybe.
What little friend?
Oh so max and Sabrina were together?

Oh, sorry. Hadn’t seen your comment
Also, I like Macbeth’s head.
It’s reveling in its cadaverousness =D I mean look at that smile!
I just realized it isn’t smiling. That’s a nose… 0_0
i have the power!!
I have da powa!
Housepets, macbeth, highlander… ok… what else can you cram into a single strip?
probably many more things, as long as there can be made links between them also, depends on how big the strip is
TOO MUCH!!! TOO MUCH!!!!! THE QUICKENIIIIIING!!!!
lol you where being silly Rick no one will lynch you over this, for it is awesome. Best ending to MacBeth ever!
There can only be one!
Until the second one comes out!
There was no second one.
la la la…can’t hear youuuu….
There can be only one, unless otherwise stipulated by contractual agreements and net profits!
There Should Have Been Only One!
. . . So anyway, I keep hearing about ‘The Matrix Trilogy’… when are they gonna make the other two movies?
Yeah, I’m not really sure why they haven’t done that yet– the original was so successful that I would’ve thought Hollywood would’ve sequeled the crap out of it by now.
On a similar note, why do they call it Blade Runner: The Director’s Cut when it was the only cut? I never got that.
I think they just add Director’s cut so that it will seem sepcial, so that they can earn more money….. I am probably wrong but hey, thought I’d take a stab at it.
Director’s Cuts means you see scenes that were filmed, but never made it to theater due to the Director’s cutting.
(And those scenes were usually taken out for a good reason…)
I know…. but why bother to just make one version of a film
Those that are in denial…
The wonderful thing about Tiggers…
…is I’m the only one!
NO YOU’RE NOT! YOU’RE A LIAR! GO AWAY!
I now have the huge urge to listen to Queen, excuse me. *Puts on Princes of the Universe*
“Here we are, born to be kings. We’re the Princes of the Universe”
“I have inside me blood of kings (Yeah, yeah!)”
I have no rival! No man can be my equal. Take me to the future of new earth!
Freddie died too young
wait, who was it that commented a few strips back that Macbeth was like Highlander?
Well, he was either a highlander or a lowlander!
And Peanut’ll get to Scotland afore ye?
That’s still a backwards reference considering Macbeth came first.
Death by a broom stick, now there’s something you don’t see everyday! XD
BROOM TO THE FACE!!
What? No Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez (Sean Connery)?
This is AWESOME!
Continuation of Alt Text:
“I’ll pass the test FIRST TIME! YEAHHA YEAH!”
okay this is all kinds of awesome! XD
*pulls out handcuffs* INCARCERATIOOOOOOOONNNNNNN!!!!
*pulls out a board game* OPERATIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNN!!!!!!!!
*pulls out a bottle of beer* INEBRIATIOOOOOOOOOOONNNNN!!!!
also known as drunkenness or…. INTOXICATIOOOOOOONNN!!!!!
I think that my sanity needs another EXAMINATIOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNN!!!!
Removing somebodies head is a form of MUTILATIOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNN!!!! Although, it certainly is an efficient method of zombie ELIMINATIOOOOOOOOONNNNNN!!!!!
A large rip in the skin,
Oh no! The victim of your attack is a zombie due to the process of REANIMATIOOOOOOOONNNNNN!!!!!!!
I think this could become a very serious CONDITIOOOOOOOOOOONNNNN!!!!!
i hate having to fight zombies, they spread and multiply like an epidemic and trying to kill them is just an IRRITATIOOOOOOOONNNN!!!!
it also leads to frustration, but we’re getting off track
WAY off track lol
We had a track?
I daresay we’ve reached the end of the line. Moderation. ;3
Strip is win, but needs more Sean Connery
Peanut uses Element of Treachery!
Max is ko!
It’s super effective.
how did you get a max-head paper bag? i’ve been looking everywhere for those!
Target had them on clearance a few weeks ago.
PEANUT, FLAWLESS VICTORY
Well, that was also an unexpected end to the comic.
That’s an awesome sword.
Too bad I can’t join them. I have a replica Templar dagger (the edges and tip are blunted for safety reasons) that I got in Germany over the summer, and I think that it would make the play a lot more realistic. Also, I have two practice foils and two sets of protective gear since my dad and I both take fencing lessons. Now that, combined with Tarot’s powers would be awesome.
I agree… If only people could join them. Looks like loads of fun, especially with Tarot’s power. Heh, Good thing I am not going against you in a sword fight then. XP
It makes you wonder if she was using them or not, I mean if they were actually seeing the story.
Actually, if you were fighting against me in either Eppe or Sabre, you might win, since I only take lessons in Foil. And also, NERD ALERT NERD ALERT!!!
Random question that is totally off topic.
Are you going to go to the rock concert next summer?
haha Highlander joke nice job
I watched 3 versions of Macbeth so I could get this and I have no idea what’s going on.
Panel 4 is quite epic though.
I agree. I just didn’t watch any version of Macbeth
The last two panels are a reference to Highlander the immortal
Cool… now I have to go watch that.. after I finish watching the documentary known as Metal, a head banger’s journey.
ANd now Peanut is doomed to be in bad sequel by bad sequel and bad sequel till it all end ina TV movie that screws up and entire franchise and spits the face of the first movie, as well as Queen….
Who would be Duncan? Joey or Bino?
Now, what I dont understand, is why are they pretending this game. Why not use Tarot’s awesome-cool spirt mind power thing and make this reaL?
Correction, ‘why are they pretending this play?”
Do you really want Spot (Superdog) to show up in MacBeth?
And do you really want Max and Grape to be killed?
I think it was stated that what happened during Tarot’s mental projection wasn’t real, it just felt real for the duration of the mental projection
Yes, I DO want Spot (Superdog) to show up in MacBeth. Everybody knows that superheroes make everything better than the original!
True, if Batman were in Lord of the Rings, one COULD simply walk into Mordor.
but he’d rather take the batmobile.
I am Batman, I am justice, I am the night. I simply walk into Mordor!
I am… Darkwing Duck!
I am… the walrus.
I am… totally and completely insane!
Maybe she is using them and we just can’t see.
Didn’t you learn ANYTHING from that arc?
It was cool, but it wasn’t the “real thing” cuz it was real… wait… O_o”
You have a good point there.
I think Tarot’s mind power cut in in the last panel.
No, your doing it wrong! Sword held the other way with your fist in the air!
Meh continuity errors are everywhere ya know.
HAH! Haperbag head is funny.
BTW I don’ get the ref… I mean in the last panel not in the third one I’m not THAT slow. :p
Whenever a highlander decapitates another, as per the plot of the movie, they gain all the knowledge that highlander knew in a surge of power known as The Quickening.
An immortal. Only Connor and Duncan were highlanders.
Haven’t seen Sinistar in years.
I’m glad I wasn’t the only one….
The wonderful thing about Tiggers is that I’m the only one!
Nonsense! There’s momsey tiggers! And popsey tiggers! And tiggers I never know!
nope they made a movie about it; there is only 1 tigger
Haha! Best ending for Macbeth ever!
I just realized it! That’s not a smile, it’s a wrinkle in the bag! The actual mouth is drawn a bit farther down, heheheh. I don’t get the ref in the 4th panel either though.
Never saw the Highlander movies?
Idiot me, I posted this comment below.
Actually, that’s the nose!
I had to realize that too.
So, anyway, I’m glad Tarot couldn’t help letting her imagination get away from her…
you know, I didn’t notice that…
actually, that’s the nose!
Me: “So Peanut, what did you learn from killing max?”
Peanut: “How to irritate the living daylights out of everyone.”
Me: “Anything else?”
Peanut: “Not really.”
Me: “Fair enough.”
The Paper Bag Floors Me !
OH NOW YOU WANNA USE HIGHLANDER!!!
ARE YOU SERIOUS! >:(
im only half kidding :/
This reminds me of Team Fortress 2 including the great water ballon fight.
DemoMan: THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!
Oh, no! A DECAPITATION!!!
I thing I’m gonna faint.
Oh no! An unconscious Kitsune! I know what to do in this situation! *dyes Poison’s fur neon purple* Oh, wait, I should probably help him. *gets defibrillator* I have always wanted to use one of these things! *shocks Diet Poison back to consciousness* Yay, he’s not dead!
The Diet Poison is now more purple than Grape. Congratulations?
Thank you. I do try. :p
Final Fantasy 12 flashbacks. Fires of war, shatterheart,pyroclasm MIST CHARGE!
I dont get it somebody explain?
It’s a reference to a movie called ‘Highlander’
The what ?! DIRECTOR, LINE? LINE?!
Oh yeah robot chicken did that only it was Lindsey lohan
Feel the Stag McCloud !!
Tarot adding special effects again. xP
yay highlander reference
Ah highlander, there can be only one, where as another movie not mentioned here Starship Troopers, there should never have been one to begin with.
the first thing i thought when i saw troopers was super troopers man i need to do something better with my life like write a novel or solve world hunger or maybe go watch highlander for the first time
The movie is an insult to the book and the people responsible should be brought before the Hague for crimes against humanity.
rick is it okay if I’m using a similar universe to yours as the base of a story?
LOL ! Peanut wins ! rofl
peanut brightness O.o
So if he shatters from the energy, does that make him peanut brittle?
*gives you an Internet*
*gets bowl of popcorn and prepares to read entire Housepets! archive*
how did they make that effect in a play
This is where Tarot’s psychic ability comes into play.
Are we even sure that last effect is actually happening and its not just Rick wanting to have that cool effect in the comic?
My gawds! The geek meeter is going of the scale!
Oops, sorry, that’s me. *takes a few steps back, and the geek meter ceases to go off* I haz fixed ur problem! I can haz rawhide bonez nao?
*watches the geek meeter explode* Well, back to the drawing board…
Well, I guess my geekiness is too massive to be contained… that means that you can put that lead box back where you found it… and fill in that hole that seems big enough to fit said lead box inside of.
Alt text: “With my sword and head held high!”
Does that mean his head or MacBeths head held high?
Why not both?
