They both look so romantic in the first panel...and the sound FX on the last panel are amazing.

I believe Tarot is still psychic.... telekinesis maybe?

Rigatoni is easier to eat! Look at them go! That is romantic, right?

I'm guessing either Tarots powers somehow or the Chef recognized what they were doing and went along with it because it was cute.

Love the last panel and the Alt-text :lol: so adorable.

Edit: I really like this arc so far, since it's given Tarot screen time that she really needs, but really if you don't just accept how their doing things as "Tarots Powers somehow" it kind of falls apart.

I'll be honest here, I don't think I've seen Lady and the Tramp in its entirety, either. All I really know is that one scene.

I figure her powers are acting like the TARDIS translation matrix.
of course, that begs the question why isn't the guy freaking out about hearing a dog talk to him in his head?

Since there's an HP version of "Lady & the Tramp", I guess their "101 Dalmatians" would be closer to a "Die Hard" type hostage movie given that Cruella Deville and the dogs (at least the adult Dalmatians) could communicate directly.

Rick, unless I'm doing something wrong, the main page seems to still be pointing to "To The Market, To The Market". I got here through the link on the forums page.

"Tarot's powers somehow" is kinda what is driving this WHOLE ARC. C'mon, there's something seriously flawed if we're complaining about people understanding Tarot and yet not complaining about universe surfing and anthros suddenly being quarupeds due to said universe surfing. :D

Seeing as how this is being played out, I guess Rick decided to pull a fast one and use the sequel's scene instead? Food for thought :D

Excellent, Peanut and Tarot. Classy as ever.

Both of their faces in the first panel are adorable. Rick just has a bad habit of drawing those all the time.

I noticed Peanut knocked the pretty candle off the table as they "Groumf" and "Omf" that rigatoni.

You have a point, but it's in human nature to constantly question things that shouldn't be questioned because the feeling of understanding calms the human mind. It's one of mankinds greatest flaws and strong points. :ugeek: ... in other words, we shouldn't question the questioning of others. :lol: That is my knowlage for the month

I was thinking that might be the case, but there seemed to only be a handful of responses an hour after the comic had been put up, so I thought perhaps others were having the same problem, figuring Rick was delayed in posting it.

In any case I see it is indeed now pointing to the new strip for me as well.

So they have the eating down pat, these dogs,
and the owner can comprehend them?
Maybe Tarot has been using her powers again
or perhaps he's just clearing his backlogs?
They make an adorable canine couple,
even without the clichéd mistaken kiss
that's been done so often in movies -
(Hot Shots Part Deux serves example.)
I sense their romantic night will be disturbed
by chasing cats crashing through the yard.

Well, if you remember how they did it in Lady and the Tramp... However, I think the best part is you are suppose to go into this comic thinking that until the 4th panel, where it's pointed out they never watch the movie.

... And I love the way Peanut and Tarot just go nuts on that food. <3

I love that movie!

For those that haven't seen it. or just want to see it again, here's the scene from the original movie and here's the one from the sequel.

Heh, Angel (in the sequel) even looks a bit like Tarot. Who reckons they'll clean each other's faces like in that second clip? :D

If you watch the clip I posted above, the chef puts the menu in front of Tramp and Tramp barks four times to indicate item four on the menu (I assume). I would think Tarot/Peanut did something similar.

Like I said last time, it was the same way Lady and the Tramp did it. Mario Tony is just so tuned into the narrative that he instinctively knows what they want.

And the mad sloppy "om nom nom" is perfect, of course that's how dogs would really eat a plate of pasta.
