Squirrel-Nuns are the best nuns.
Alt Text: O almondy Father, please bless this day our daily acorn.
Methinks those squirrels are a little nuts.
And they’d take it as a compliment!
This coming from a squirrel, so I think it’s kind of one-sided.
Nun better, bar nun.
but, at least skunk-nuns are black and white like the outfit.
I personaly like my satanic nuns but that’s just me, yes that was a book reference
Bene…the book you’re referencing…it’s, like, in my mind, but I can’t think of it (you know what I mean?) help me out
Not to sound argumentative or judgmental, Bene, but there are Christians here (myself included) who take offense at that.
Not to sound argumentative or judgmental, Bene, but there are Christians here (myself included) who take umbrage at that.
Has anybody here would like to convert to Squirlism?
What, are you nuts?
all furries prefer Foxism
I’m a devoted skunkist
No offense, but skunkism really stinks.
I think that’s sour grapes.
I just realized I totally missed the opportunity to make a “Foxist”/Fascist joke, considering how they sound alike…oh well
Now you’re just wease… wait a minute…
Squirrel nuns … you mean someone like Scarlet, Violet, Jade and Amber (5C4RL37, V10L37, J4D3, and 4M83R)?
(It is just 1st april joke. I recomend it read from first page of course.)
The squirrels being nuns is perhaps the scariest part of that particular strip. Not only can I see it happening, but I can imagine them turning a church into some sort of weird religious science lab.
Be careful though, they have nun-chucks…
Dr. Zahi Hawass would find Pete’s temple exciting to explore!
And at least 500 mice!
before or after grape ate there leader
Yeah you know, from the squirrel branch of the Catholic church.
Yeah, man! Praedicate eangelium omni creatura, and all that.
“Squirrel Nuns?” was my first thought, too. Then I immediately thought of Redwall
I thought of the Bromeliad.
redwall was a good cartoon i liked that
Who knew Keene would work so well with them simple forest-folk?
hahaha squirrel nuns
Hey nice strip as always ,I was reading some king arcs while waiting p.s. early comment
Those will probably be very relevant to this arc.
Poor Zach getting himself in trouble without even wanting to.
When has he ever wanted to? These things just seem to happen…
Why is it that this poor,sorry,lonely,diary wrighting guy is ALLWASE in trouble??
From the grate watergun fight of Arc #43 to the time he relased Peat and now this? Boy O’ boy lets see how he worms his way out of this one!!
It’s a comedy staple: when in doubt, hurt and/or humiliate the innocent character.
but mostly Bino
Yet again Zach gets dragged into more of this stuff. The Rabbit can’t just catch a break.
I think it was a robin.
Not a bat, man?
betcha anything it was actually a penguin.
naw it was a dodo
maybe it was a dodo penguin hybrid, the Pendodo!
i think its a dodenguin!
darnit you’re better at this than me :c
You’re just a joker, aren’t you?
nah i’m just a riddler.
ill get Batman!!!
To small carnivores, all birds are divided into three categories:
2. Too big to eat.
So, what is Keene winning by doing al this investigation ?
Knowing if he is going to have to call Indiana Jones to pick up the shiny idol that’s probably waiting inside the temple.
Somethings are not meant to be found!
And maybe, just maybe thats why Sabrina is there … you know … sabotage … As you said, some things are better being omitted
I would say its a huge possibility (like basically 100%) that, yes Sabrina is likely there to sabotage what they find and keep them in the dark.
Because as I said before finding out that your fathers life work was a big fat lie to win what amounts to a game of D&D because some Cosmic Powered Nerds where bored one day would kind of tick most people the heck off.
Something about salvation after his jerkish actions last year, which Zach lampshaded.
A new attraction for Theme Park World.
what would it be called: i was going to saw Pete’s Temple Adventure, but
that would defeat the rules of theme park world.
Squirrel nuns! Now I’ve just got to see them!
*sighs* the water gun turf war who could forget^-^
Bino, he wasn’t really a big part of the action.
though since its “water under the bridge” we have to forget about the war now :c
Under, over, around, …
It’s water /circumventing/ the bridge!
Given the context, I think it’s safe to say that some of that water ended up under the bridge.
just a small trickle that can’t possibly be noticed by anyone who’s not Keene.
well that was because he was tied up during the entire war!
Hm. Squirrel nuns presumably founded by St. Francis?
We have to allow for the squirrel nuns, equal rights for women and all that. Otherwise all we would have are chip”monks”.
I see what you did there.
you guys are driving me “nuts” with all these puns!!
Getting a little squirrely?
i think so…….. i think so!
A covent of squirrel nuns… Why do I feel like this has something to do with the great squirrel revival in the sleepy little town of Pascagoula…?
what is pascagoula??
i had a feeling this was a reference to one of the books of the Redwall series, also….THIS STRIP IS HILLARIOUS!!!
It was a fight for survival that broke out in revival. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K16fG1sDagU
AHH….I’m still watching…waiting…for the battle bettwen Snowmon and spo
Lol can’t wait to where this ends up
It´s all a dream …. ja ja ja ja ja could you imagine that ?
Probably with Pete doing something horrible to King. -_-
Either with a new weapon/tool/artifact for keene to keep or……
At the auction down the street where the never priceless artifact is being sold for $10,000!!!!
In the Gate of Mystery.
YES! THAT MEANS MORE KING!!!!
Aha, THAT’S what Karishad was doing there
so im taking it that Karishad was sent to get Zack by Keene, but didn’t Karishad lock Keene in that ferret cage at the zoo?
Keene turned around and hired Karishad. Start reading here:
sort of like the sith, except the apprentice is the psycho mastermind.
thanks for that RJ i will now call the Theripist!
ok i guess i’ll see you there, i have to go get my sermon on world ending apocalypses that i left there much to the displeasure of my therapist.
and i bet your therapist just “Loves” you!!
We definitly need more bobcats here !
Bobcat Goldthwait. As Bino’s voice actor.
Though, considering King’s been the only foul-mouthed housepet in this strip…
(Though, I’ll grant you the humor could be argued to be more Bino-ish.)
Zach, let the watergun war go. Everyone had fun. Well, everyone except Bino.
And you got to end it in style, Zach. I still think Rick should release the picture of Grape, Peanut and Zach walking away as a t-shirt.
convent of squirrel-nuns? XD I’d love to see that
We ALL WOULD!! Who doesn’t??
*Sighs* I wish Karishad was MY bodyguard…
Would that make you Al or Betty?
Keene seems to be Karishad’s long lost pal.
You might regret that wish sooner than later!
Though he [i]is[/i] too] cute for his own good.
I dunno, Karishad as a bodyguard might feel more like a hostage situation. XD
ALL HAIL THE OPENER OF WAYS!
okay what type of offering should we give?!
Carrots. And peril-sensitive sunglasses.
Once the opener of ways, always the opener of ways, Zach.
I don’t see Zach fully cooperating here. First off, he didn’t want to be known as Opener of Ways, and apparently still unhappy with Keene.
But he’s a rabbit, so what’s he going to do about it?
Rub his feet and hope something good happens.
move to a new neigborhood!?
try to get the neighbor kids to give him some Trix (TM)?
but he can’t because Trix are for kids
you know i don’t think there is a single child living in babylon gardens.
oh GOD we need to get rick in here and explain this before we all go insane and kill each other D:
I think there were kids shown in the background of the “Pridelands” book signing strip.
WE NEED CHIL…
maybe not the pets would be loved to death
what due you expect keene started the great waterballoon war
At least he can tell them apart now…
“Now you march right on hare to see Mr. Keene Milton.”
I find this entirely plausible. :3
I see what you did t-hare
Followed by a shoulder grab that instantly teleported him to the house.
I was thinking of how a teacher might grab the shoulders of a troublesome student – see the way Kari’s hands are in the first frame? – and march them off to have a chat with the principle.
It’s also rather interesting that the one who’s mad as a march hare isn’t the rabbit.
I think they should add the laser pointer element to this. that would make it perfect, something like a trap in the temple meant for Tarot. also, think about Kevin, and what we could do with a laser pointer for him.
Would a squirrel service be as fun as those in African-American gospel style?
Well… In a word… Yes. Definitely yes.
Woodland friends however nice they are, kinda unreliable X3
Poor Zach having to deal with this again.
