Sasha, how sweet and humble you are! Anyone would seek her help in dire situations
But , what is she even watching?
Thought so as well
you could ask… nvm
try a cat, no wait—all they is sleep.
the ferrets, noway. money is going to their heads.
You know he could be heading to sabrina’s
Sabrina lives with Tarot. He will most likely hit Peanut and Grape’s House next since they live next to Bino.
Good point o_o
Maybe Res will still be there.
What do you mean, they’re all asleep? I’m sure Tiger’s still up.
O I seen whut u did there
How many Shasha does it take to change a lightbulb?
Three. One to realize it needs changing, one to tell the third it needs to be changed, and the third one to try to talk it into changing its mind.
wow, you should work for rick.
I actually had to think about a good response, and I threw away a few ideas before coming up with that one.
I tried to think of, “How could Sasha misunderstand ‘changing a light bulb’”, and decided she might think changing it’s mind. That was after I decided to break it up into ‘one tells the other’ and ‘one to realize it’, though… I originally had it as ‘two’, and changed it to fit the new joke
Overall, I’m terrible at coming up with witty statements on the spot, but I’m medocre to decent at coming up with them after thinking about it for a while.
Kinda like how I am in math. I suck at doing math fast.
That and you ruined the joke by explaining it
i believe it should me 12
one to figure out what it is.
one to figure out the problem.
one to find out where to get a new one.
one to get it.
5 to reach it (because there so short)
one to figure out how to take it out.
one to get it to magically fix itself.
and finally one to actually change it.
And some how she did talk the bulb into changing it’s mind. And it started working again. o.O
Actually, I think that’s how it’d go with Tarot, or maybe Sabrina.
With Sasha, it finally starts working after she offers to date it for the weekend.
(Woo, thought of that one on the spot.)
Lolol O.o u guys r so hilarious! Thanks for making me laugh
wow, this comic combined with all your guys’ comments always brighten my day. thanks all! =3
Well thanks for your thanks.
I always feel like being nice to someone who has Fox as their Avatar. I just love Fox, I wish I can have a frined like Fox..
Yeaaah… He’s not that desperate. though I’m still confused why Tarot didn’t help him.
Still though this was funny.
It wasn’t in the cards.
good choice just keep running
just keep running just keep running
…running running. What do we do? We run, run
I think joey looks rather normal in this strip!!
The strip makes much more sense if you account for the history between those two
Well, I suppose bino has lost weight because he looks strikingly similar to joey! Not to mention the scarf is covering his collar!
doesn’t joey have a dark patch on his right eye tho?
just checked, he does.
Additionally, the tags say ‘Bino.’ That’s always the best way to check, if you’re not sure.
You can’t even really see his right eye.
I didn’t know he is Joey before U said it. Family of Bino’s are bit simular to each other…
D’oh I was right, nevermind
i think its joey
It’s bino. It says so in the tags.
He *does* look a bit like Joey. I think it’s the expression of thought and concentration, which Bino would never wear. Or not often at least.
Ohhhh, diss on bino! XD
i dont think anyone can help
King can only help himself unfortunately!
perhaps that’s the whole point of the arc.
He must face duchess and tell her straight from his heart that he’s in love with bailey.
That or punch her in the face. Not that I like to see people get- oh what the heck. DRAW BLOOD, KING!
If King stops to tell her that she’ll put him in the love cuffs before he gets a chance to say anything.
Go to Peanut! I don’t recall the two of you ever speaking to each other! Do it!
Peanut will be playing Mariocart, he could not answer the door.
But Peanut loves to open the door, and if not him there is Grape
Grape would probably answer. Cats are nocturnal, so she wouldn’t be taking a nap.
Not if Peanut woke her up too much during the day.
Any radom things can happens in HP,
Grape for sure. she never met king but saw him before, so she can give him a hand (or broom)
i don’t think Peanut would be any good to solve this problem. Grape on the other hand has a broom.
We shan’t forget the very beggining of this whole story how formidable Grape is with a broom?: http://www.housepetscomic.com/2008/08/13/stick-em-up/
And a frying pan! I wouldn’t be surprised if she still has that one!
But then she won’t be able to use the trademark BROOM TO YOUR FACE move.
… It’s covered in bacon grease, I’d sure as heck keept it ;P
Peanut would be scared by Duchess!
They likely meet off-panel at the GODC Christmas Party but King and Peanut have never interacted storyline-wise.
Yay, Bino! *giggles*
Duchess and Bino have to know each other, they have some kind of time-share co-minion arrangement with Boris and Yeltsin.
So going to Bino for help with Duchess would be like going to the Penguin for help with Catwoman.
Bino has some tenacity making a snowman this late in the night.
Actually I think it’s probably just after dark, really. King just got home a little late for dinner. For some reason it does feel like it’s the middle of the night but it’s probably only about 7-8PM.
Well it is February
Even then look at that determination, that stark devotion to finishing his icy masterpiece, un-phased by the quarrels of the world around him.
Especially if Sasha is watching “Jeopardy!”
gotta love Sasha. totally in “la la” land
…while King stays in “oy oy” land
Bino’s all like “I thought I saw…..nah.”
Lol Sasha is funny to see as well as King in panel 3. Rick I have to ask what is with kind of obvious Filler/Padding strips here? Not that it isn’t funny but why?
Good Question! I second this motion. all in favor say “aye!”
It’s a chase sequence!
He could have easily done this part as a triple strip I’m just kind of wondering why hes making it separate entries it just makes it very Fillerish at that point.
Not every strip has to involve a huge leap forward in the plot.
I’m sorry I just don’t like padding or filler never really did never will.
Fox, nope. Tarot, no help either. Sasha, not today. Bino…. ABSOLUTLY NOT!!!!!!
I meant absolutely.
is that the tv? i cant tell, it doesnt say anyone else beside who u see.
it sounds like a game show
Not wheel of fortune for sure… (I’m so ramdom)
Right, Jepardy!! Forgot about it
King looks like he actually had to THINK about it for a second. If King seriously had to THINK about asking Bino for help, you know he has a problem on his hands.
Also, Sasha is hilarious.
Sasha watches… JEOPARDY? My mind is completely blown!
…Or is ‘Jeopardy’ watching her..?
In soviet russia TV wathe U! But she is germen… ( isn’t her breed Germen shaperd?)
In America, you play Jeopardy.
In Soviet Russia, Jeopardy play you!
AMERICAN DAD REFERENCE!
in soviet Russia CAR DRIVE YOU!
Maybe she just likes the theme song. ♪ ♫ ♪ ♫
“…Our love’s in jeopardy, babe, ohh-oo-oo…”
alt text: Oh! What are the Hostess snack foods?!
xD i love sasha! she’s such a fun character.. i hope he goes to daisy! she needs some air time. i would be totally thrown for a loop if she is actually coherent and says and offers more than her name x3
It could be the first time that daisy actualy says more than ‘Hi I’m daisy’
“Hi, I’m Daisy!”
“Hi, I’m Daisy!”
“Hi, I’m Daisy!”
“Who are you?” “Oh, no one important.”
Lol, Lets Expect daisy
Seeing Sasha’s reaction in this situation makes me wonder what would happen if King had tried to call her phone or knock down her door with a battering ram.
Or C4, that would likewise be interesting to watch
Because King carries C4 and a battering ram in his collar. Along with a cell phone.
doesn’t everyone? 8D
I don’t have a collar… or any of the items in question, including a phone.
I always keep a pound of C4 tucked away in my socks. My phone is a Nokia, so it’s already a battering ram.
I have a smart phone, and I’m pretty sure there’s an app for battering rams and explosives *opens google*
Not so desperate for help, are you King?
Who makes a snowdog at night?
My guess is that Max has kicked Bino out of the house in order to spend some private snuggle time with Grape
Of course! Max could help! Why didn’t anyone think of that?
with Rick, you must think the unthinkable!
How dare you make a cop-out in the first panel! >8c
The best way in comedy is to do the cop-out in the last panel!
I’d say “Milton ferrets” but something tells me they’d have nothing against the actions being taken by Dutchess.
Plus Keene’s still stuck at the Zoo, I think? He’s probably the only one with enough of a sense of responsibility to want to help.
Rock would want to make a movie of it.
…Should’ve seen it coming, all right.
Who’s next in line?
Since her and Peanut live next to Bino Its likely.
I have to wonder where Duchess is. Did she give up the chase (very unlikely). A couple of predictions, though: Either she is lurking just off panel, planning a sneak attack or she has just fallen behind. Perhaps if King hurries, he could make it back home withiout Duchess’ detection, but we all know that that would be no fun…
Or Duchess ‘could’ be waiting for King when he shows up at Grape’s house!
All good things for those who wait…!
Actually, either that’s Duchess’ paws in the last panel, or King did lose her.
Nah, that is just the tail end of King jogging off.
-_- well so much for that plan, maybe he’ll get from Sabrina like he did before.
Sasha threatened to staple his ears to his eyes, Bino might actualy be the perfect guy to ask.
King: I would like to redact my previous statement…
Maybe King has a better chance of avoiding Duchess’s pursuit is to be buried in the ground by Miles’ Cubs. Poke a large straw up for air. Then the following morning King can just dig himself out!
Fido. It would make sense as it would put King in contact with the K9’s again, and fit in his karma/learning thingee.
Terrance. And next year Duchess and Terrance win the pageant.
I was waiting for Bino to show up! That was perfect xD
Now, who will he seek out next? You know it’s gonna be good, next one’s Friday… I still vote in the Peanut/Grape camp.
Peanut/Grape for presid- I mean helping King, 2012!
I notice it is taking all of Bino’s concentration to make a snowman or snowdog…Ow! Now my brain hurts again. My point is don’t let anyone distract him or his creation will never be finished.
ANYONE! …Except him.
To be fair, King was willing to accept help from anyone. I don’t think Bino’s ever helped (intentionally, anyway) anyone else in his life. In fact, the only way he’d likely change would be to help Duchess catch King, in order to spite him. Thus, King’s not exactly turning away help.
Bino: I sense that I was just dissed by someone…
Sasha seems like one of those types who are super cute but isn’t really smart about the most simple things.
Hm, asking Sasha…. unfortunetley for King, that has a high chance of compounding the problem.
Have you considered that maybe King happens to trust Sasha? She did come through on the watch thing
Wonder how long it will take for him to realize that Duchess got cold and decided to go home and try again later. I could see him going to Grape and saying a crazy girl is chasing him and Grape just look around and say “what girl”.
Either way it would be more likely for him to get help if Peanut opens the door.
Or…King tries Peanut’s Grape’s house on the pet door they installed, but since the raccoon incident, the Sandwiches have installed a lock and therefore rendering King helpless once again.
Does anyone else feel like this Arc is filler? No offense meant rick, I think its hilarious, but it seems like you’ve been telling the same joke for the past few comics O.o
Bino is the last resort…. predictable
Bino isn’t a resort at all.
More like boot camp.
Ohh well done sir!
Maybe just a distraction would do? Is Bino purebred? Probably not…
just say u were king and bino was your last person who could help u would u ask
Clearly he’s gonna go ask the tanuki from earlier. IT IS SO OBVIOUS.
The lesser of two evils
i think the “who is aaron burr” refers to “Atlas Shrugged”, but thats just me, i finished the book
It does not; Sasha is watching “Jeopardy,” a game show in which the contestants ‘answer’ in the form of a question. Aaron Burr was the third Vice President of the United States and famously killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel.
Why is Bino playing in the snow this late anyway?
he enjoys the night?
I think Bino smelled catnip in the last panel…
It’d be a surprise to see Grape help King despite the fact that Grape threatened King once.
King uses : asking for last resurce
Destiny : puts a bino in his way
King uses: ¡#&% No!
Except that his destiny is currently in the form of a stopwatch in his room
But thats his human form destiny.
sahas so stupid and isnt binos face more sqre than usual i mean HIS NOES IT WAY TO LONG but regular size of a real dogs but longer than it usualy is
Sasha isn’t stupid she just doesn’t know how to solve the most simple tasks. (Don’t make her go “TAKE OFF YOUR COLLAR” mode on you)
0_0 u wnt to see me naked! AHHHHH
Sasha fuss over trying to get into the house!
the last person I’d expect to help King would be Fido since King (i think he still is) afraid of the police dogs.
somehow, Bino in this comic is definitely cute
Usually i dont like Bino, but i totally agree with you on this one.
I wonder what type of event it would take for King to ask for Bino’s help, or vice versa?
King would ask help to Bino only to get Fido off his back.
Haven’t been reading for the last week.
Came back and pleasently surprised at how lulz the last three comics have been.
Poor King can’t get help from anyone.
hehe nice job with the shading, also for some reason bino looks cute!
Agreeing with this!
Speaking of which, did King ever meet Peanut and Grape?
He has met Grape…..kinda. Not Peanut though.
King Is awesome
Took me a second to get the jeopardy reference. Sasha’s hilarious.
um the alt text says what are hostes snack foods they are little baked goods like mini donuts or lildebies but they are going bakrupt last i herd…suck cuz there so good theyre in most kroger stores and gas stations in the u.s.a.
