  1. Dissension

    I know well the heady feeling of promotion to First Scantily-Clad Off-Burlesque Dancer.

    • holmebrian

      alt text: But at least she is happy to be a Grandmother! You know, even IF you’re part of that equation

    • Salenstormwing

      I got that same feeling when I got that part-time job as a fry cook at the Sizzler.

      • tahrey

        Until everyone got jealous after you got employee of the month for extinguishing that out-of-control grease fire with your face?

    • tahrey

      Can you fill us in exactly what off-burlesque is then? Google’s got nothin’. I fear it might be a “people who know Guys and Dolls / other musicals” in-joke.

      • Air

        Well, off-white means something is almost completely white but not quite there.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        It’s a sideways reference to “off-broadway”.

  2. Xane

    Stubby legged mutt-eranian puppies.

    • Valerio

      *melts by power of little adorable weapons of mass cuteness*

      • Whiskers

        wonder if there’d be a little bit of dragon mixed into that breed given who Tarot is

        • Valerio

          you just killed the cute :(

          • Monkey D. Luffy

            they are little puppy dragons how does that kill cute?

          • Xane

            Hey, the Dronkeys were pretty cute…

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Let’s see, Dragon’s avatar is Tarot, and Tarot is playing Adelaide in Guys and Dolls, and the puppies are in the play… that’s getting a bit meta.

          • Frank

            Not until you factor Rick into it!

  3. IceKitsune

    XD Da Papes lol.

    • Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

      “Da Papes” indeed, dawg. :D

    • Zaitsev

      I feel like that would be some mid-90’s newspaper.
      Or one from Portland.

      • illeatyourself

        XD I was actually going to put a “Da Papes” post myself until I spotted this one! XD I don’t read the news often unless I’m bored and waiting to go somewhere, but I would SO read that just so I can say I’m reading “Da Papes”. LOL

  4. Draven

    I really wanna see those puppies though.

    • I like your hat

      what i assume to be a mutt and a Pomeranian…. that would be so ADORABLE imeantheywouldbefluffyandcuteandshortstubbylegsandandandCOLORFUL!

      • Valerio

        almost as adorable as a corgsky litte! *imagines, goes EEEEEE* :D

        • GameCobra

          I find it to be more adorable than corgis in my opinion. Peanut’s pups would be energetic and possibly psychic o.o <3

          • I like your hat

            not corgies” corgSKIs :3 ya know corgi and husky

  5. I like your hat

    OMG that’s alot of kids o.O i mean theres usually more then one puppy in a litter …..

    • *White Fang*

      I really think its funny how the title is” just ‘kid’ing “

      • dibs


    • LupisLight

      My first thought also was, “Five LITTERS? Good heavens!” Tarot must be good if she can get someone to buy that outlandish story.

      • Frank

        How old is Adelaide supposed to be, anyway?

    • I like your hat

      i mean at least two per litter i mean its pretty rare for there to be only one pup…..

      • LupisLight

        From what info I can find, Pommie litters are usually 1-3 pups, however litters of up to 7 pups have been reported on occasion. multiply by 5 litters and you have around ten pups, which is still a big handful as anyone who has raised puppies will attest.

  6. *White Fang*

    5 litters? Peanuts a player :D

  7. xhunterko

    Only 5?

    • xhunterko

      I was gonna say: Don’t you mean six? When I saw both hands. Then I remembered. They only have four fingers each hand! Silly me.

      • Aerion Snowpaw

        I wonder if they count in base 8?
        Maybe base 16 – the same as our ‘Hex’ system – for all four paws (front and back)

        • holmebrian

          if they did it using the binary system that would be even better as they could go to over 250 with just there hands

          • Aerion Snowpaw

            Screw the binary system – you’ve got knuckles, dontcha? That’s 3 significant ’states’ right there.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Yes, that was a nice touch.

  8. D-Rock

    Seems legit.

  9. Draven

    I kinda wanna also see Tarot as a scantily-clad off-burlesque dancer.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Dude, you can barely see her collar as it is!

      • Valerio

        that’s why she got promoted to FIRST dancer

  10. Ezhno Pallaton

    Hah! Love that, they only have 4 fingers on each hand :D

    • tahrey

      I wonder if they count in Octal?

      One full hand plus a finger… five… augh.

  11. D-Rock

    Sorry to post again so soon, but I finally read the synopsis of the play (honestly, I doubt I’ll ever see that play). Now really looking forward to how this adaptation will be.

    • Stevie Maxwell

      Having watched the play recently (it was in our playhouse run last year) I can honestly say that Rick is adapting the story quite humorously. :)

      • Aerion Snowpaw

        I can tell that just from the synopsis :P
        But, this scene is new to me <.<

  12. Shoan

    *Imagines the pups* AGH! I need to name them, let’s see Peanut Jr., Strawberry, Eggy, Bacon, and um….. Ham. wait 5 litters? I need to call Jill!

    • Draven

      For 5 litters, that comes out to about 30-35 names. That is, assuming there are 6-7 puppies per litter. Naming all of them to go with the sandwich theme could take a LONG while.

      • Valerio

        Earl: Honey, have you seen the pickles?
        Jill: in the fridge, usual place!
        Earl: No, THE TWINS!

        • GameCobra

          Humorously while that is cute, i also thought of Rugrats =P

    • Xane

      Strawberry sammich?

      • TGH

        strawberry jelly most likely

    • Argent Stonecutter

      You’d need names to go with Detroit. Car companies of the 30s. Auburn. Buick. Cadillac. Chevrolet. Chrysler. Cord. Dodge. Duesenberg. Ford. Hudson. Lincoln. Nash. Packard. Plymouth. Pontiac. Studebaker. Willys…

    • Timmie

      Considering Peanut’s owner’s last name is Sandwich, we must continue that trend.

      Ham and Cheese
      Bologna – I pity the poor pup getting this name
      Egg Salad
      Chicken Salad
      ahhhh Spam – Ok, my pity now goes to this pup

      • Verp

        My favorite sandwich is a BLT with Miracle Whip and peanut butter.

  13. Valerio

    so hilarious, sweet, cute… Rick you keep being the genius! :D

    • Ryufire

      That is always a good thing! Thanks Rick! :P

  14. Gabe23

    Really well done ! It is going to be interesting to see how Rick is going to make some parts of the play, looking foward to it !

  15. lumpking

    So that’s why Tarot dosnt have a collar…
    And dear jebus that is a ton of puppies

  16. Renkun

    I think that her collar under her fur is.

    • I like your hat

      i dont think so you cant see her eye of ra at all usually you can

  17. WingedwolfGirl

    I want teh see some Tarot/Peanut puppies.
    Also panel 2 is adorable.

  18. holmebrian

    anyone else notice the cat ears on tarots paper bag whats up with that?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Maybe they’re horns? Adelaide is the “bad girl”. Sarah is the “good girl”.

    • Pogiforce

      scantily clad off-burlesque dancer, probably wears cat ears.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Would they have kitty costumes and catsuits in the HP world?
        Would they have “mens clubs” for pets, perhaps in less bucolic suburbs?

        • Z24

          Whatever the intended use, that sure won’t stop Joey

        • tanglestalker909

          As per the catsuits, ask Joey

  19. Eloides

    i don’t know how you can write so well, your articles are excellent.http://www.pneusgoodyear.net

  20. Tendo

    That’s oddly insightful for Peanut

  21. GameCobra

    Without that collar on, Tarot’s a free spirit!

  22. Ozimul

    I want to subscribe to DA PAPES. Where can I do that? XD

  23. Crackles

    They look rather cute in the second panel. Though Da papes definitely is the highlight of this strip.

  24. Anália

    greetings my friend, i came to congratulate you for your great website. all the best.http://www.alternador.org

  25. Cerberusx

    Fourteen years!? O.o

    How long do these pets live for!?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Rick’s said previously they live “about half as long” as humans.

      • dibs

        they are just doing the show, though, so i don’t think you have to read too much into it

  26. Tom Flapwell

    Just found this limerick:

    How go things in Noo Yawk? Nicely-nicely.
    Guys shoot craps; dolls perform very spicily.
    Ad loves Nate; Sarah, Sky.
    Each ends up with her guy.
    Is that cheesy? It’s Broadway. Precisely!

    • Argent Stonecutter

      There was a young bard of Japan
      Whose limericks never would scan
      When they said it was so,
      He replied, “Yes, I know,
      But I always try to fit as many syllables into the last line as I possibly can.”

  27. Thorn

    Why can’t tomorrow be right now? (I’m sorry for my impatient comments. Please don’t kill me.)

    • I like your hat

      “sneaks behind with a knife” >:3
