*Puts on the lunch bag* Peanut take us with you! >u<
(Follows Ryufire with a bag on head)
What are we playing?
(Shoves a paper babg on his head).
Paper bag hats =D
(Looks at his typo)
=^. .^= (Joins the crowd)
(puts a bag on head and draws a musical note on it)
im with peanut
wa wa wa waaaaaaa
id play a tuba…. for reasons between me and fat people….
I would, join Peanut
I feel like this is all one big inside joke that Im left out of :/
the beg or the brass instrument
The whole series is a twist on the play “Guys and Dolls.” It all revolves around gambling, and the big bet is for Sky (played by Max) to convince a woman of Nathan’s (played by Peanut) choosing to go out with him. So Nathan picks the very conservative Christian missionary (played by Grape). Hilarity ensues.
Mod Edit: Fixed Link
wha wha whaaaa!
Rick should have made this comic actualy play the sound effect
Heh well this should be interesting.
alt text: everyone needs to play a brass instrument for this exact purpose
Darn, now I need to buy a new trumpet.
I bet I could do this on my violin
A piano, however…
you play violin too?
Well I can play this on my…. carp.
oh god where?
if it’s in a murky pond you’re about to have !fun!
A kazoo is good too.
I wonder if Peanut can play the tuba as well. Playing it allows you to do the Price is Right “Sad Tuba” music.
Peanut sure changes costumes quickly.
Despite the fact that the costumes are only papper bags with letters and symbols that shows what they are over their heads!
So yes, yes he does!
oh hey! i just realized Peanut’s bag has a musical note on it in the last panel!
*wah wah wah waaaaah*
By the way, what does Grape’s first sign say? Grateful Sow? Baleful Escrow? Aweful Kapow???
It could be “careful now”, I suppose. Makes about as much sense as anything else.
I’m 99.872% certain it reads “CAREFUL NOW.”
It’s careful now and down with this sort of thing, I’m betting it’s a reference to Father Ted they protested in an episode and that’s what they had on their placards.
In the episode ‘The passion of st. Tibulus’
What does the other 0.128% think it says?
“CAREFUL MEOW”. They are pets after all
Ah Grape. She was having NONE of that.
i like peanuts muffled trumpet in the last box
::Begin Stupid Trivia::
The mute in the trumpet in the last panel is a Harmon mute, also called a “wah wah” mute, for obvious reasons. But it won’t actually make the “wah” sound unless you have your right hand over the mute rather than holding up the trumpet at the valves. Sorry, I’ll shut up now.
::End Stupid Trivia::
Also, how does a dog play the trumpet with dog lips?
(yes, with a “z”)
How can they see is the question lol
Hmm… the bags have no eye holes …transparent bags? -I got nothin’
…Looks like Sky’s about to say goodbye to either his self-respect or $1000.
I found this comic hilarious, especially the trumpet. If there was an actual Guys and Dolls play that was done like this, I would go to it without hesitation.
Keep up the good work, Rick!
Especially as all the actors only have collars and paper bag hats on.
I like where this is going =3
I’m finding it very hard to not spoil myself by reading what happens after this. X3
I simply love the last panel … just love it
Hmmm, this could be problematic. I do believe Peanut has bested you Max.
when it comes to games, you just can’t beat Peanut. EVER.
those wolf cubs almost beat him :3 in checkers, Latvian gambit http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/10/26/how-terrible/
HEATHEN! REPROBATE! Incorrigible unprincipled son of a charming young woman!
No! Nobody could defeat Peanut! HOW COULD YOU SAY THAT?
Anyway, we don’t know if they almost beat him or not. All we know was that he was using that strategy, not that it wasn’t working against them.
Peanut is hilarious
Lol! I get it!
Ah Father Ted reference! Love it!
Of course, I think a tuba would’ve been a better instrument for that moment.
HA THE SIGHNS ARE FROM FATHER TED!
BY JOVE! You so got it! *shakes hand* I thought I was the only one watching it…
Oh Max, what have you gotten yourself into now?
Max has gotten himself a sweet gig in an off-off-off-off-off-off-off-Broadway production, is what Max has gotten himself into.
just need a few more off’s cause there really far from Broadway.
Where is Babylon Gardens anyway?
I need a *facepalm* avatar.
recolor panel 4 from http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/11/24/true-art-is-weird/ ?
I think it’s near Springfield, just south of Angel Grove, take the third to the left after the intersection with Smallville, and you’re arrived!
So what’s that in “offs”?
… off Broadway?
Kinda wish the horn would squirt cider in Max’s ear.
God, im finding this current arc to be especially hilarious because i was in a stage production of guys and dolls. This has been totally grand so far. XD
I’m suddenly reminded of that scene in Mouse Hunt where they try to mail the mouse to Fidel Castro
Except this is pre-Castro.
I knew that…
seriously… I did…
Smooth one, Max.
Totally not a fair bet, Grape and Max are already together.
Yeh, but Sky and Sarah aren’t.
I call shenanigans irregardless of the situation in the play.
can’t go wrong with peanut in the situation
DOWN WITH THIS SORT OF THING! indeed!
DOWN WITH THIS SORT OF THING!
ha ha ha ha ha i would love to do that to my friends
Did Peanut shrink or is that just my perspective?
I was in this play once btw. I was a minor character…
Wa wa waaaaaaa.
Peanuts left hand doesn’t connect to his body in the last panel.
i’m loving this comic so far, but i must say, it sucks trying to do anything online using a PSP…
heh, try doing this on a DS
and that’s why you invest in a laptop
Don’t need a laptop, you can get a cheap generic tablet for about 70 bucks at Walmart. Just fine for web.
I think a laptop is a better investment…
I was so bored by this musical…
Nice Father Ted reference in there
