Yush, New arc new adventure! ^-^ Double Peanut! o.o
I wonder if this counts as deja vu <- alt txt
I thought 2 of the same beings couldn't exist at the same time or esle a rip in space-time would happen….or something
Well there in a time paradox now, if you ever played time splinters 2 you know they can be a really bugger to get out of. Less your the Dr. And he’s not
There’s only a paradox if he does something different the second time around. And I can’t believe Peanut isn’t getting it, with his appetite for books he has to have read “All You Zombies” or “The Man Who Folded Himself” or “Try To Change the Past”.
 Robert Heinlein, the original time loop story.
 David Gerrold (who was also the author of Trouble with Tribbles), a really twisty time paradox novel.
 Fritz Leiber, one of the time wars stories.
I think PsyCon is technicly outside of time and space.
Ya I think you can argue that point
so many questions to ask myself without looking crazy
you’re talking to yourself, no matter what you will look crazy.
Not if you’re talking to your time-travelling future self.
Then THEY look crazy.
Serves them right for butting in on a private conversation.
So that means 2 of the same beings CAN exist at the same time then and it won’t matter?
I think my brain is melting…..I’m overthinking too much X_X
Longish story short: If you believe the optimistic physicists, it should be theoretically possible. If you believe in the precepts of reason, no, this would be Impossible Absolutely.
But it’s a story, with magic; go with it.
Yea, More PsyCon!
And more other worldly root beer!
Well this was a bit unexpected. But its nice to see this is back. Also two Peanuts! Awesome.
Double the pleasure, double the fun.
Tags should be “Peanut, Peanut, Tarot”.
Or “Peanut”, “Peanut?”, “Tarot” if the second Peanut is not in fact Peanut.
Or if he wants us to wonder.
Should this also be tagged ‘double strip’?
in more than one way!
This is entirely Tarot’s fault and also Tarot’s fault!
Is that double mention of Tarot because you think that a second version of Tarot also exists, and worked with the normal one to create this situation, or because you’re doubly blaming her?
I find this statement 50% accurate with a 50% margin of error.
No, it does not count!
Time travel, Peanut is going to stabilize the time loop soon.
yeah at some point i started to understand the situation, so the Peanut behind the counter is the present peanut? and the one in front is from the future?
Peanut no, you’ve created a time paradox
It’ll fix itself, it always does.
He hasn’t created it yet, in fact if he doesn’t he’ll create a paradox! Wait…
Confusing, isn’t it?
Not compared to some of the stuff I put my D&D group through when I was running that alternate universe scenario back in college.
So you’re the reason they put that “no weird time junk” rule!
Not me, it was another ferret, honestly!
I am perfectly okay with double the peanut, destruction of the universe or not
Wait a minute! Doc I thought you said….
Oh Peanut looked at what you done! I cautioned you about disrupting the continuum for your owen personal benefit!
So now Bino’s turned The Good Ol’ Dogs Club into a gambling empire and is running Babylon Gardens in his image?
Peanut, you’re smarter than this. He is obviously you come back in time from the future – He remembers this conversation because you are having it right now. He’s not a doppelganger, he’s a Time-clone!
That’s what he wants him to think!
Well he can’t be an evil twin, he doesn’t have a goatee.
Peanut must have not read much time travel story books, huh?
Can I have the extra Peanut, please? Or better yet, make copies for all of us!
Unfortunately they’re only temporary.
Please don’t let this end up like Futurama where all time duplicates are DOOMED. Also I think it goes against the lawz of nature for someone ( Peanut ) to be that freaking adorable
There’s no duplicate if you think four dimensionally.
Reference from back to the future?
Dang It the gravatar thing has been messing up my profile picture
This is gonna get pretty pretty interesting …
Two Peanuts One Universe……
Oh God Help Us All!
Things Are Aboot to get Interesting o.o
That’s a thing right? ‘Cause everything else seems to be a thing x3
Also, yay! Book 3! Must get >:3
I think we’re gonna need a blackboard.
And so…the universal doomsday clock is ticking? .__.
One way to settle this Peanut….sniff his butt.
I think I’m missing the joke here…..
Butt smell is like photo ID for the dog set. If Peanut #2 smells like Peanut #1, then he’s not an imposter.
I feel really stupid for realizing that’s why dogs do that…..
So… the two peanuts will occupy the same time frame for the next few minutes and very bad things will happen, then peanut #1 will go back in time and it will happen all over again, and then when Peanut #1(2) goes back in time, there will only be one Peanut unless for some odd reason Peanut #1(2) is the one we follow which would cause a diabolical time loop?
Oh jeez my brain hurts :c
Unless Tarot is imagining herself as Peanut for some reason.
What a mind job! >.<
No, it’s simple, Peanut #1 goes back to 1943, and meets Robert Heinlein on the deck of a US Navy destroyer, and gives him this idea for a really great time travel story. Then Lazarus Long shows up and sends him back to 2012 where he accidentally knocks himself into the vortex of a cronosynclastic infundibulum and sends himself back to 1943. So he jumps in after himself and ends up going back 30 minutes to try and stop him from being knocked into the vortex, scaring his original, who runs off to find Tarot. So he decides he’s fixed everything, because the original Peanut won’t be in the dealer’s room when he appears now, so he goes back to manning the booth, which is why he’s knocked into the vortex when Lazarus Long shows up with his younger self. The original Peanut, who has now never time traveled at all, finally returns with a very confused Tarot. Lazarus Long gives them the watch from “Somewhere in Time” as a souvenir of the time loop that never actually happened.
…You scare me :c your D&D group probably went insane :c
I’d so pay to watch that!
Of course if M Night Shmayalan was doing it, the watch would turn out to be Peanut’s fate.
Like how King’s watch is except that it is part of his soul
You’re overthinking it. Think of it as… let’s see…
Think of a piece of string. This is Peanut’s timeline. Ordinarily, it just goes straight from point A to point B.
Now loop the string back on itself. At this point, Peanut has entered a time loop. At one point, you will have two pieces of string (two Peanuts) right next to each other, but they’re still part of the same piece of string (timeline).
GENIUS! Or just say time is like a big ball of wibbly wobilly, timey-wimey stuff… you cant keep it straight.
Wow, and I just finished watching Back to the Future II.
Love That Show. The Western one was just Epic
The Time train was Just EPIC lol
There’s no double Peanut tag? What is this heresy?
I noticed that too.
I tried, but the system doesn’t let you add a tag twice and it wouldn’t feel right if I marked the other Peanut different.
So… Either time travel or dopplegangers exist. Either way, our course of action is obvious. Us fans must start trying to convince Rick to make a comic that features a pile of Kings cuddling together, because let’s face it, that would be the cutest thing ever.
So, right (present) Peanut is gonna argue with left (future) Peanut about how he doesn´t remember him, and he is going to touch or do something that will make him “time travel” and present Peanut will be now future Peanut and he will have this same conversation with now past Peanut, past Peanut will “time travel” and future Peanut will know be present Peanut. And with luck Tarot will not know about this episode
That is what I think is gonna happen … is it understandable ?
Are you sure you mean “is gonna happen”? With this new plot twist, we can’t even be sure whether this comic is the present one. Peanut could have already gone off one wacky adventures with his future self, caused a time paradox, or even killed his future self for all we know, and we only think that it hasn’t happened yet because we’re actually the past readers!
Oh, man, this is heavy. (hey, someone was gonna say it)
“One of the major problems encountered in time travel is not that of accidentally becoming your own father or mother. There is no problem involved in becoming your own father or mother that a broad-minded and well-adjusted family can’t cope with…
“The major problem is quite simply one of grammar, and the main work to consult in this matter is Dr. Dan Streetmentioner’s Time Traveler’s Handbook of 1001 Tense Formations. It will tell you, for instance, how to describe something that was about to happen to you in the past before you avoided it by time-jumping forward two days in order to avoid it. The event will be described differently according to whether you are talking about it from the standpoint of your own natural time, from a time in the further future, or a time in the further past and is further complicated by the possibility of conducting conversations while you are actually traveling from one time to another with the intention of becoming your own mother or father.”
Very understandable. my brain is melting even more now though :c
heh, only thing missing is Baily.
rectangle on Peanut’s eyebrow!
rectangle on Peanut’s eyebrow!
rectangle on Peanut’s eyebrow!
rectangle on Peanut’s eyebrow!
rectangle on Peanut’s eyebrow!
The original Peanut is the fake Peanut…
Or is the degeneration by the Paradox O_O
Uh… that’s just a tuft of his headfur getting into his eyebrows…
Awwww… but i had a theory and everything
The Peanut has been doubled!
But has the fun?
In the tags shouldn’t there b 2 peanuts?
Now when the first Psycon arc is eventually reprinted in “Housepets! 4″, will Rick add on a “To Be Continued….” panel to the end of it like they did for the tape of BTTF?
Oh god stable time loops
Quick, bring back the young Richard Feynman to explain it!
Wonder if Wendsday will bring a third Peanut to the party.
I support the motion!
Ponbon comes back and suddenly removes his fursuit head and its Peanut instead? o.o
he is small enough to pull it off, isn’t he?
Unless future Peanut is insted Armando R. Cruz, the evil Peanut´s twin from a different dimesion that wants the family fortune
Well, if that were the case, he couldn’t be the adult Peanut, because he’s too small. Still, he could be puppy Peanut from the past, I suppose.
I think that would count as “weird time junk”.
hmmm parodox nice
peanut in stereo!
Hey, has anybody seen my chicken puppet?
it was over by the edge of the universe go ask the travel service to take you there
or maybe one of the peanuts took it
Hey, you know what; I remember around Dog Days of Summer saying that some one was going to break Kitsune “No weird time junk” rule. I wonder if this would count as doing that.
That only counts in the game.
But everyone’s playing the game! Those who aren’t (like Grape) are cheaters who are to be driven up trees! Have you forgotten arc 2?
Wrong game, and I already stole your socks.
More action at the Con, this should be fun.
Wait, now i understand this.
Peanut didn’t listen to Tarot. he used the Astral thingy to go back in time, ’cause, as Ponbon knows really well, it can time travel. BRAIN PAIN GOES DOWN THE DRAIN
Well, taking a road trip doesn’t technically count as selling anything.
I kinda admire how Peanut can stay calm in these situations.
Yeah, just remember http://www.housepetscomic.com/2011/02/04/most-dangerous-variety/ (last panel)
I remember. I would probably have some sort of calm freakout if this happened to me, though.
He’s a dog, he likes excitement and barking at it from a distance.
2 Peanuts are more as perfect
1 for Tarot and the other for Grape and everyone is happy^^
Make another Grape for Max…then everyone’s happy.
Actually, you know what? Just duplicate everyone and get them in relationships with other people (or their duplicates). Then the entire cast is happy.
let me say so….no i think nobody want’s a second bino (except Sasha) or more from the miltons ferrets
Other peanut is a spy!
So it seems there is a bit of a time trip loop slip somewhere and future peanut has appeared at present peanut time in the reality between the realities and time spaces. The fact that they are outside the normal time space continuum would allow such things to happen in this dimension of reality. More interested to see what it is that peanut does to cause this event, most likely has to do with the services he is holding watch over.
I would have thought that being IN normal space-time would make this more logical-otherwise there is the implication of absolutely NO continuity at all, even second-by-second, and that gets REALLY confusing really quickly.
Wish they would sell your Comics at book stores Rick, would toltally buy them . when I order things online something always goes wrong
Hmm… we’re back to a Psycon after a small break from Kevin, similar to how the Farm arc was handled… except there’s a possible doppleganger involved.
coincidence? I think not!
Mr T – “Snickers in the third dimension, Get Some Nuts!! UURRNNGGHH!!!”
this can’t be good
Maybe Peanut went back in time to stop Grape from snapping Bino’s shock collar control.
Boy, Peanut sure is looking paradoxal today, even moreso than usual.
Rick: when printing time comes, we need a version of this arc that can be cut out and taped into a mobius strip.
The Peanut has been DOUBLED!
So how many points does he recieve?
Depends on the suit.
He has no suit…Peanut’s naked all the time.
What really happened is that Tarot dragged him along with her when she went to the end of time to rescue Ponbon, and he overshot on the way back. At least that’s what I remember the last time this strip showed up.
should i be this confused?
I don’t know, how confused are you?
you should look up what your confused about on Wikipedia that’s what i did :3
*quickly stealth-edits Wikipedia to say the exact opposite*
*reads Wikipedia* “…to get unconfused about time traveling dogs, give all your socks and shineys to the nearest ferret.”
i will Edit the Wiki Afterwards and Make it Better.
Or you could time-travel to before he got confused, and edit it then!
This guy, he looks familiar, but I don’t trust him.
man people call 2001 a space odessey confusing and then this happens…
Mother of God…
Two peanuts means two times the fun XD
Two Of A Kind
That’s a pair to bear a full house.
Don’t post that; you already left that comment.
I think I would remember if I’d posted that before.
I wonder how this will end XD
a peanut army!!
A Peanut gallery, perhaps?
Well I’ve seen a Peanut Stand….
….and heard a rubber band
But will constant multiplying make the Peanut brittle?
Ohmigosh, the King front cover is great I need a poster of that!
“Peanut, you can’t do that! The future will be changed! You’ve created a time paradox!”
But if I’ve already created the paradox, then if I don’t do it I’ll change the future again and create a new paradox.
Why not a parageese?
Can’t believe I didn’t think of that.
Time can be rewritten
Oh dear, here it comes. Wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey! :/
UH-OH. TIMEY-WIMEY ALERT!!
I hate when my dopplegangers emember things that I don’t. Happens all the time.
I forsee the two Peanuts wanting the present Tarot, and then having the most immature, yet adorable, slap-fight to the death. :3
But then they would kill eachother…
IE: NO MORE PEANUT
Is it just me or is one of the Peanuts missing the “bone” in the second panel?
*GASP* HE IS D:
It’s behind his hand and/or drink, unless Rick retroactively restores it.
The problem is that there is too much space between the collar and the hand and/or drink for the bone to simply be hidden entirely from view behind either one.
Perhaps Rick… who is human…
Made a mistake…
I thought Rick was a furret?
Peanut’s been told before…/everything/ is a thing.
DOUBLE THE PEANUT?!
Why are there two Peanuts?
Thats what we are waiting to see
You know what they say… Double the Peanut…
…Half the sleep time for the cats…
All right, Mr. Clever Artist Person, admit it. You’re just doing this so you can reuse the same strip later. CONFESS.
I feel that that will happen sometime in the near future.
I think Rick’s more clever than that…if he does use it again, he’ll redraw it, perhaps from Peanut #1’s POV looking out at Peanut #2 with the con in the background (Like the Ponbon shots) using the same script.
We are going to see this comic again later, aren’t we?
That’s exactly what you said the last time this strip was posted.
They just need to switch sides of the booth and all will be….well, just as wierd, really…
There is no fun until there are more then 10 Peanuts in the same room.
I take that back, 100 Milton Ferrets are needed.
Heh…I first read that as 100 Million Ferrets
Oh god….the Ferrets!…they’re _everywhere_!
Lol surprised such a conversation has yet to happen anywhere else in fiction! XD
“Why is any object we don’t understand always called a ‘thing’?” – Dr Leonard McCoy STTMP
If they ever Imaginate Star Trek, Peanut should be McCoy.
Don’t get all falossafee on us it’s just the way people think,that’s my guess
everyone has been over thinking this strip
Thats good ,isnt ?
No not rilly because if everyone over thinks this one then we won’t be able to consentrate On the next one
Ummmm. didnt i say somthing before about time travel?
Travel back in time and things get confusing fast.
well, that and ive been told… EVERYTHING is a thing
I’m just glad that the time travel paradox issue was so distracting that no one started to speculate what the little puppy’s rooms were like in the Housepets universe.
