    • Marco

      Oh Snap!

      • ToaSoul

        ill get the Fire extinguisher cause Keene just got Burned!!!

        • AthiosDvK

          Burned by a mage, no less! It’s totally ok, though, she probably knew the perfect fire spell anyway. xD

        • Z24

          You better… put a sterile bandage and Neosporin on that…

      • holmebrian

        and pete really wanted them to split up. lol

        • Verp

          How do we know the way the temple is now is not the result of Ms Dragon’s curse on the temple and that how Zack originally found it was how Pete wanted it; nice and benign for his followers? But why would a psychic connected with Ms Dragon be “helping” them? Wouldn’t setting things up so someone could be eaten by a monster go against the rule of not having malice toward mortals? Thinking about it, I am just confused now.

          • GarrisonSkunk

            We don’t know that the gargoyle was going to eat them, that was just what Sabrina suggested.

          • Keldor

            So long as the mortals endanger themselves of their own free will, knowing the consequence of failure, I see no problem.

    • Spider30

      Gargoyle: Dang! They found me out.

  2. Zaitsev

    That pun actually atrophied the muscles in my face that let me smile. I love it.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It’s a gneiss pun. Chalk it up to experience.

      • Alucai Vivorvel

        You deserve to be shot with fuzzy bullets for making that pun.

    • Xane

      What? Everyone knows gargoyles are rock solid all purpose guards who don’t need you to put their nose to the grindstone for good results, all you have to do is carve a niche for them.

  3. Ryu

    It’s going to take a while to explore the whole temple! Hope Karishad doesn’t set off “anything” bad! :P

    • Lamandus

      Why did I read “Kadashian”?

      Anyway… Ferret meat? sounds interesting… maybe there is a place where you can eat that….

    • Dissension

      Karishad’s not even in this strip!

      • Ryu

        Doesn’t matter if he’s there or not!

      • Gabe23

        nor Zach …

        • Dissension

          The comment doesn’t mention Zach, though. = P

      • volkoseba

        Doesn’t matter, he’s in the ark and your mind… how do you expect to outrun him when he is already here?

        • Ryu

          Exactly, thank you Volkoseba!

        • Dissension

          Actually, I’m in Karishad’s mind. *giggles*

          • Argent Stonecutter

            You lock the door. And throw away the key.
            There’s someone in my head but it’s not me.

          • Keldor

            The rel question: is Dissension the reason Karishad has lost his marbles, or is he (she??) the only thing holding Kari back from *really* going nuts?

            Then again, Diss is a squirrel, so maybe he’s just after said nuts.

        • Zarvain

          “He’s in the arc and in your mind…” does that make him related to slender?

          • volkoseba

            And Lord English. Man, that family moves fast.

    • Shuma Jindivi

      ……I think set off thing is his job (and talent)?

  4. Gabe23

    If theres something ALL the horror movies has teach us is NEVER split the party

    • RedDwarfIV

      You see, this is why Scooby Doo stretches the suspension of disbelief.

      • tahrey

        The thing is, the Scooby gang never splits into groups of less than two. Each subgroup is always able to watch each other’s back if necessary. A lone explorer is a sitting duck. A pair is much less vulnerable. A quartet is better, but offers much less additional benefit than going from solo to pair.

        • Indagare

          What about a trio?

        • GarrisonSkunk

          Plus Shaggy and Scooby don’t have to share the food they find as they “search” the abandoned kitchen.

          • ToaSoul

            well most of the time they get to the kitchen and BAM!! theres the monster!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Except this time the monster is unlikely to be old mister Milton in a rubber mask.

    • GameCobra

      That, and it’s the girl that stops the bad guy. Luckily they have Sabrina =P

  5. IceKitsune

    Never ever split up it always ends badly. Also that punny Alt text: Gargoyles make great guards cause you can take them for granite.

  6. GarrisonSkunk

    Alt Text: Gargoyles make great guards cause you can take them for granite.

    • WingedwolfGirl

      So long as the goyles don’t act like angels, I fine with that. *Shutters*

      • BanditRingtail

        Don’t blink. >=3

    • GreighVonGottreich

      Oh the epic pun! >XD

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Rick is definitely the Pungeon Master. Bennett Cerf would be proud.

        • Keldor

          …Who let that fox into the alt text boorh?!

          • Keldor


    • legendario13

      Seems like I have entered to a Pun World :D

      Thanks for alt text.

      • ToaSoul

        it gets very bad after awhile and you always end up caving in.

        • Legendario13

          Yeah, i know what you mean
          also. there pretty temple-ramental people that dont get them (I do what I can :P )

          • ToaSoul

            thanks for not taking my words of wisdom for “Granite” Legendario

  7. xhunterko

    Just add ketchup!

    • ravor9933

      And that is relevant to the strip how?

      • Lance

        Keene would taste delicious to the gargoyles, as long as they add ketchup. That’s what his comment means.

        • GarrisonSkunk

          I thought it was reference to the ketchup/fake blood Peanut washed off his collar at the end of the Scottish Play Imaginate.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Rats 40p, Rats with Ketchup 70p.

        “Why does the ketchup cost nearly as much as the rat.”
        “Have you ever tried eating a rat without ketchup?”

        • Doitean

          Terry Pratchett FTW!!

        • ToaSoul

          it works the same way with cheese on anything: hot dog $3.50 hot dog with cheese $4.75!

  8. Xantham

    Never ever, EVER! split the party……

    • Marco

      Seriously!!! That’s what cause trouble in the first place! But in this case it might be fun to watch anyway! :3

  9. Marco

    Oh Snap, I knew those gargoyle statues were alive in some way! :D

    • DanTwelve3

      The gargoyle did not just snap at Daryl. What you saw was… erm… erosion. Yes, you have seen erosion.

  10. Draven

    Bigger-on-the-inside temples and weeping angel gargoyles? Is the Doctor Who likeness intentional, or am I seeing stuff that isn’t there?

  11. Cristian100n

    Oh “Snap”

  12. DanTwelve3

    Oh that alt-text pun makes my sides want to split.

  13. Mukavich

    “Don’t you know? You never split the party! Clerics in the back to keep the fighters hale and hearty! Mages in the middle, so they can cast some light, and you never let that darn thief out of sight!”

  14. Arjay

    i vote Keene first to fall into a trap! (Karishad is obviously busy somewhere else so…)

    • ToaSoul

      i bet he has already found tons of shines!!

    • ToaSoul

      and i agree that Keene should fall into the first trap

  15. Ryu

    Are Daryl’s arrows the standard sharp tip or suction cups? :3

    • ToaSoul

      umm….. maybe both; pointed if they need to attack something, and suction cupped to shut Keene up when he keeps yapping!

      • Arjay

        or to attach strings to and suction-cup Keene in the butt to get him out of a trap !

  16. SilverZeo

    Wait, is it a good thing for a stone “statue” snapping its fingers? Causing a snapping noise and stones means to need some super-glue…

  17. Mindsword
  18. Rallyjr

    never understood why people would choose to split up when faced with possible danger, then i watched “cabin in the woods” and it all made a little more sence

    • ToaSoul

      to make it more interesting to the audience, but in Scooby-Doo they overused it and made it boring, but mostly to make it more interesting!

  19. anon_omis

    Just in case no one has made the reference. LOOK OUT IT’S A WEEPING ANGLE!!!

    • RedDwarfIV

      Acute angles weep because they are too small. Reflex angles weep because they kick doctors in the face when the doctor taps their knee with a hammer. Obtuse angles don’t weep. They’re too stubborn.

      Or did you, perchance, mean ‘Weeping Angels’?

      • Argent Stonecutter

        They’re weeping because they’ve been bisected.

      • anon_omis

        This is what I get for trying to be funny at 2 in the morning

    • ToaSoul

      oh dear they are in trouble!

  20. cesarinthewhitedragon

    poor gargoyle.. no ferret sammich for you!

    • ToaSoul

      mmm… ferret sammich a gargoyles greatest snack!

      • Dead Men Walk

        dose ferret taste like squirrel or something else?

        • ToaSoul

          more like weasel!!

          • Keldor

            I can’t imagine that *any* mustilid would taste good.

          • GarrisonSkunk

            As a fellow mustilid, I agree with Keldor.

            I’m surprised Argent hasn’t weighed in on the whole ferret eating thing.

          • ToaSoul

            well Gargoyles are made of stone i dont think they have Tastebuds so they dont really care what it tastes like.

          • GarrisonSkunk

            According to Sabrina they’re delicious.

          • ToaSoul

            hmmmm…… point taken you win

  21. WingedwolfGirl

    “okay gang, let’s split-up and search for clues!”

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Funny…in the third panel I got a mental image of the five of them walking by in the standard HB Scooby gang walk cycle. If I get up enough ambition (and find enough time), I might do a quick clip of that over the weekend.

  22. GarrisonSkunk

    Then Keene finds a book named “To Serve Ferrets”

    Keene: “See! These guys love my species!”
    Sabrina (Facepaws).

    • ToaSoul

      Zach: umm Keene you should look at the first page!
      Keene: Let me see That! him take one pound of banana’s, two scoops of cinnamon, and one spit-roasted Fer….. oh my….
      *chucks book over shoulder*
      Keene: lets keep going!

  23. Mega Creep

    Look at Daryle! How lovely he is!

  24. *WhiteFang*

    I’ve always liked Daryl but now with the bow’n'arrows OMG epic

  25. The Maverick Man

    I feel Daryl should have gotten the hat with the feather in it

  26. Grip Moonwolf

    I actually feel kind of sorry for the gargoyle. The guy probably hasn’t eaten in YEARS!

    • GarrisonSkunk

      But if that’s subjective time its like he just ate 40 seconds ago.

  27. staghorntiger

    Rats, there goes the free snake. Awesome little SNAP at the very end.

  28. Argent Stonecutter

    Never make the thief the leader!

  29. D-Rock

    Gargoyle denied!

  30. Facade Kitsune

    wow i cant Believe no one remembers this XD

  31. Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

    That gargoyle looks suspiciously like Pete…..

  32. FerreTrip


    Don’t split the party, don’t split the damage!

  33. Anonymous

    I really hope this will bring new plotlines for the King. For me, King was one of the most interesting characters… not saying he would be *better* than the others, but certainly for the plot and all awkward situations he’s going thru.

    What’s Marco’s avatar? Looks so darn familiar and cute.

  34. illeatyourself

    This was funny, and the alternate text made it even funnier! XD

  35. lala
  36. 50CaliberCat

    Girl knows her strategies lol

  37. GarrisonSkunk

    Is the comic’s title a reference to anything? The only thing I can think of is the old song with the lyric “Rock the Boat, (Don’t Rock the Boat, Baby)”

  38. bhPixelFire

    A rock solid pun… *hrk*

  39. GameCobra

    The Gargoyle is thinking to himself “Oh, snap. I’m alone here.”
