You keep your lips together and blow-wow-wow?

Deep in the cold-hearted Winter
Bino finds his courage a frozen stone.
As Deadeye works to scare the bear,
Bino fears his innards will soon be shown.
Natalie doesn't care but he signed for it
and she's not going to let him escape.
Filing her claws up for a better grip;
Piercing his ear to keep him in the jape.
Bino' discovered a brand new terror,
one that won't permit him to flee.
One that's even worse than the bear
and it's a she-Wolf named Natalie.

I do like Natalie. Granted this is her first full strip, but her first impression is good. :3
I'm actually really excited to see this bear (Have we seen Rick draw a bear before?)! But it seems the payment for it is to wade through so many unbearable puns! :|

Good luck reasoning with them while they are hibernating and just waken up by someone...

I actually believe Bino will complete this task, in some weird way though.

Would it be legal to have Natalie, Jessica, King, and Duchess in the same room? I mean there'd probably enough snark to be weaponized...

Oh so the wolves know that bear long enough to give him a name, eh?
So it means eh is sort of a family friend, right? RIGHT?
Also maybe he isn't that tall and just climbed up to get the bird :D
Well....okay Bino is now in BIG BIG problems :mrgreen:

While Natalie might seem to be snarky, she isn't a total perfectly wonderful person like Duchess is. She would probably protect him.

I doubt he has gotten to the point where he has to be put out of his misery but if he stays with Duchess any long, he might end up being.

We'll see a great thing from Bino, yeah. ;) Better retire... Uhm, no. :P You don't know how's made a bear, Bino? Never seen a photo? :P Bino should be more coward than a bear cub, Natalie. :) Yeah, bark at him should work. ;)
BTW, this so casual couple is suddenly being fun. :D Natalie is so annoyed, and Bino's submission to females is hilarious. :D At least, he's looking cute in this strip, for once. :P

Any bets the wolves are actually onto Bino's schemes and they're just trying to scare him?

That'd mean one of three things - Deadeye robbed the cradle, Deadeye is younger than he looks, or Natalie hides her age well.

What happens in the background of Panel 3? What's that cloud of dust between the trees that isn't there in the other panels?
It's not Bino's breath, as it's definitely behind a tree... I also doubt it's a bush since it's not there in the other panles...

Hey, I didn't know they were being naughty at the time. Or what they did to get filtered. Is lack of knowledge also naughty? ;)

I didn't think that the word was naughty either and that it was only the variation without the "a" that was against the rules.

Are we talking here about the synonym for a female dog?

Because that's too loaded to be considered anything else at this point.

Bino, I believe its time to, to quote the movie Zombieland, "nut up or shut up." Also, viewing this in Firefox. It is quite lovely.

Let me just clear everything up. Small changes to a word not allowed on the forums do not make it a brand new word that is okay to post. It is, in fact, still the same word with the same meaning. When you are going to self-censor a word, please completely obliterate the word (à la "*****"). When you make small changes to a word (or only asterisk one or two letters), the word is still plainly obvious, but the filter won't catch it. Thus the mods have changed the word back to the original so that it will be caught by the filter and changed to the forum appropriate "perfectly wonderful person".
If this doesn't quite clear everything up for you, please PM a mod for further clarification.
Thank you :D
