Throwing toys at ladies? A brilliant strategy.
It’s how I got my first girlfriend… by which I mean it’s how I got my ass kicked by a girl for the first time. And, in the end, isn’t that what love is all about?
Alternate versions had the same idea: http://www.joyceandwalky.com/d/20000809.html
Walky just gave the monkey to Dorothy.
Gave it to her FAAAAAACE
“Give the monkey to her face?”
Because throwing toys at people is the best way to make friends.
…and influence people.
Welcome to approximately 70% of the conversations I had with guys when I was majoring in Computer Science…
You were in a wierd computer science program. I graduated ~2 years ago and it was all binge drinking, video games, and badly concealed insults on everyone elses sexuality… ok maybe my computer science program was wierd…
Yay Im not the shithead avatar in DoA!
Your Billie avatar is very appropriate. My time in Computer Science was probably similar to yours, except guys would give me help with homework (I had a lot of health problems then). I didn’t really like it, but whatever, it helped me pass a couple of classes.
What a gentleman.
Walky’s adorkableness just made me laugh out loud. Not on a “lol” way, like a “crap I hope I didn’t wake someone” way. Very nice.
:O we have the same name, Alix is my real first name and Rose is my internet name lol, cause of the username i used based on a song by my fave band… people just started callin me rose and so i got used to it xP
Would that band be Guns n Roses?
Awww, it’s twoo wuv!
have you read “Itswalky”?
Yep! Since it was called “Roomies!”
I be old skool, dawg!
Dude, you just be old!
No! that’s not true love. It’s clerarly, to blaaaaaaaive, which is an old way of saying to bluff. He’s probably going to cheat someone at a card game. (This horribly mangled film reference brought to you by Addled Brains, Inc. When it has to be gibberish, call ABI!)
Have fun storming the castle!
“wadda ya think, will it (Walky throwing toys at Dorothy’s head) work?”
“it’d be a Miracle.”
Yessssssssss princess bride reference get!
So…Walky’s the crazy stalker this time around, instead of Joyce.
p.s. hopefully it won’t take Walky too long to realize that just because someone shares your fandom doesn’t mean you’d want to date them.
Actually, Dorothy was also a crazy stalker the last time around, albeit a little better at hiding it before her meltdown. To complete the set, look for Danny to surreptitiously become Dorothy’s cyber-buddy, “SensitiveScanner35.”
Walky was the crazy stalker in It’s Walky initially. He just dialed it down a notch. But he still did that “cling to the girl you like like glue” routine.
This is approximately equivalent to how crushes work.
Still beats some of the come-ons I’ve received at cons.
That comment, combined with the Joevatar… Bwaha.
I know, right? Damn you, Willis this random icon placement.
Does he carry that around with him all the time?
well yeah. Don’t you?
I’m more concerned about him carrying around the action figure.
Is that a Monkey Master in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
True Story: First time I met my now-husband, he gave me a bootleg Sailor Moon knockoff doll that he’d bought on a whim. It was very odd, and made me think he was sweet and possibly a little brain damaged.
We still have the doll.
Okay, I was all freakin’ out for a moment here, like “OH HOLY CRAP somebody else has the same exact origin story what are the frakkin’ odds“… until I remembered that the new comment setup gives everyone without a personal Gravatar a new icon every time, so you’re not a jovial G1 Ratchet any more.
…Also you left out the part about jumping out in front of the vehicle your future Sweetie is riding in and hopping back and forth like a toreador doing a taunt move.
Wow…you weren’t kidding about dropping to buffoon, were you?
Maybe he only carried it for luck on the first day of college!
More likely that his bag is stuffed with action figures, and Mike’s books.
I GOT LEGS
DO YOU LIKE BREAD?
I GOT FRENCH LOAF
*smacks her in the face with it*
(I love you!)
what is this a reference to?
It sounds scott-pilgrim-ish
I don’t know, but GODS is it hilarious! XD
It’s an Eddie Izzard bit. This one.
Eddie Izzard has never been so successfully applied to anything
Should’ve gone with “Wanna see my Monkey Master?” That would have gone over a lot better.
Seeing walky say I love the head alien is…weird ><
well, he is the least threatening/ the most hilarious.
Buffoon mode, activate!
Powers of….. Idiocy!
Form of… a fanboy!
Walky Walky Walky.. that’s not a toy…it’s an action figure with head bounce action
I GIVE IT TO YOU.
I have a feeling this could be the new FAAAAAAACE
I GIVE IT TO YOUR FAAAAAAACE
Go easy on Dorothy.
This may look bad, but I wouldn’t count Walky out yet. It’s obvious that Dorothy regards her fandom as a vice, but for all her desire to get ahead in life, it’s a vice she’s found irresistible. That may change. But if it doesn’t, and if she begins to associate Walky with that vice, then he attains the lure of the forbidden pleasure.
Oh yeah, it’s hard to admit in college something like “I like children’s cartoons” if you want to look cool/make friends. So now she has a nimrod to watch TV with. Walky hasn’t struck out yet by a long shot.
Pretty sure you’re going/went to the wrong educational establishment.
Cause round my university, if you announce that, say, you are a massive fan of Gargoyles, you’d get ten people saying “Me too!” and a further five who would come back a week later and say they hadn’t seen it before, but they had a look on youtube and now you’ve made them torrent all three series, you bastard.
Replace Gargoyles with Avatar, Transformers, Animaniacs, or whatever, according to generation. Same result. There’s something about the late teens/early twenties that makes Saturday morning TV awesome again.
This is a little what it’s like at my school, except there’s still the good number of skeptics who think you’re nuts. Fortunately, my roommate and I defy them all by indulging ourselves in various forms of nerdery.
would always watch Star Trek in my dorm room and after about two weeks had both my musclehead roommate and his buddy watching with me almost every day.
What do you mean again, I never stopped watching, and never made any excuses for it. I now have the box sets for Animaniacs, Tiny Toons, Pinky and the Brain, the Tic, etc. Must say I haven`t found much on the air right now as good as those old shows.
When I was living in residence at university (30 year ago) almost the entire building would watch the Muppet Show at 430 every afternoon, then there would be a mass stampede to the cafeteria. These are the people who are running the country right now.
Well that’s understandable. The Muppet Show is awesome.
The only thing that brought our entire house-dorm together was gathering around the toob watchin the Simpsons at dinner.
So…is it just me or does Walky look horribly, horribly sleep deprived in the third panel? It would explain why his brain isn’t quite working to it’s usual standard.
Love is another possible explanation, but it doesn’t explain the bags under his eyes.
I think it’s to convey that his eyes are wide.
Y’know, with smitteness.
What Jabber said. It’s the same look, more or less, Walky had in that guest strip Willis did where he volunteered to say ‘menstrual cycle’ for Joyce.
In my experience this approach works for about three weeks. Then he’d better come up with a new tactic.
I just love the “I GIVE TO YOU!” at the end.
Thank you for using the word “snarkiness”! I was distraught when I recently learned that snarky, and derivations thereof, is a word that just barely exists outside of my personal vocabulary.
Really? I use those all the time. I think I picked it up from my mother.
Your Sarah avatars are perfect for that. WILLIS WILL GIVE THEM TO YOUR FAAAAAACE.
I just realized that I made no sense there. The worst part?
I have no excuse.
I don’t think that Dorothy is a “fan,” I just think she thinks its kinda neat. She mentions she thought it was funny “the FEW times she’s seen it.” That means, she enjoys it, but isn’t necessarily a “fan”
Walky, on the other hand… he seems more the type to post on forums at 1 am…
…wait a minute…
Nah – she just doesn’t want to admit to being a fan She’s not responding to someone else bringing it up – ‘oh, hey, I’ve seen that a few times, it’s not bad’ – she’s talking about it because she has a Dexter and Monkey Master portfolio, and called it her guilty pleasure…then with obvious shame on her face, quite belatedly added ‘when I’ve seen it’.
Yeah, but she’s said it’s her guilty pleasure. A guilty pleasure is something you like quite a bit and are embarrassed because you really like it, not something you’ve encountered just a few times.
Yep, pretty close to my reaction the first time I met a pretty girl who also liked Star Trek.
(And I called it… that was my Freshman year in college.)
Scared the **** out of her.
I did better the second time… 8 years later.
I take a more subtle approach. One that indicates I’m a fellow fan, but doesn’t involve whipping toys at her head.
It doesn’t work too well.
Now he has clubbed her over the head and can drag her off to his man cave to er… bake a cake with yeeaaaa… CAKE… nice g-rated CAKE…
“It’s a piece of cake to bake a pretty cake!”
“You gotta do the cooking by the book!”
Amen to that, also props on the Richard avatar.
The cake is a lie, there is never any cake.
You are surrounded by Richard avatars, prepare to be fwoooshed.
Smooth Walky, smooth. You really know how to charm the ladies.
….Said the Joe avatar.
Can you say “Restraining order” Dorthy?
Though I have to admit… there is something adorably kindergarten about Walky’s approach to girls. Not remotely acceptable, but still adorable. Honestly, you’d think he never talked to a girl before.
Bear in mind, most of his interactions have probably been with Billie and/or Sal. Throwing things from a distance and blurting out whatever you have to say so that you can run for it is probably the safest means of communication.
But he hasn’t seen Sal in forever, and went to a regular school with Billie. One would think he’s managed to have interaction with girls during the 13 years prior of education.
Keep in mind that he doesn’t quite see Billie as “a girl” as much as it is “Billie, that girl I’ve known forever and who currently has a drinking problem”
True, but what I meant was, it’s not like he went to a Boys Only school. He had to have had SOME sort of female interaction besides Billie.
I feel slightly sorry for Dorothy one lovestruck baffoon to the next.
Note: The post button is being obscured, so I have to reply to my own post to post this…
I wonder what the D&MM toyline would look like?
Maybe something like this? (DMMV = a vehicle toy; DMC/DMCV = “classic” toys being reissued)
(Toyline assumes the Cheese and the Martians, as well as generic Aliens, are D&MM characters)
I threw that together in paint.
walky’s making an enemy of every girl in the college one by one, isn’t he? And because of him, Dorothy and Joyce have instant bondage.
I meant instant bonding. BONDING DAMMIT!
Freudian slip much?
Joyce’s eyes darted around the room dark room. She found breathing difficult as she was gagged and almost terrified. She wasn’t going anywhere though, as she was tied to a chair; she wondered how long she would have to wait.
“Why hello Joyce,” a black leather-clad Dorothy said with an arrogant grin on her face. “So, what do you think of this ‘instant bondage’?”
“MhhFhmmMhhh,” Joyce tried to say, to no avail.
“Yeah, it’s not really my thing either,” Dorothy confessed, adjusting her glasses. She leaned over, carefully to not let anything fall out of her corset, as she untied Joyce.
“Thanks for untying me,” Joyce said, as soon as the ballgag was removed.
“Don’t mention it,” Dorothy replied, looking around to see if she could find real clothes that weren’t made of leather. “Hey, do you remember what chapter we have to read for tomorrow?”
“Yeah,” Joyce said, stretching as being tied to a chair wasn’t comfy. “Chapter two.”
“Thanks,” Dorothy said. “I’ll see you in class then.”
Oh. My. Goddess. My thanks, I GIVE IT TO YOU.
To borrow a phrase: This is full of win.
This is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever read.
This is full of THIS.
It could have been worse.
He could have offered her Head Alien.
Now THAT would’ve been ironic.
How’d they get together in the other universe anyway?
I think they went to high school together, she got to know him more.
Walky is attempting to get the attention of the opposite gender and court a female. “He is successful. The female wonders about his diet.”
Also, an ad at the bottom of the screen keeps covering the post button.
Something interesting just occurred to me.
Remember how in Joyce and Walky! Dorothy was told by the Head Alien that she needed to be with Walky instead of Joyce, as Joyce would eventually kill Walky if they stayed together?
I think she believed him. I think Dorothy somehow got herself into a new timeline and is very subtly attempting to seduce Walky. Everything we’re seeing here might be all just a part of the Head Alien’s master plan.
Weirder stuff has happened to these characters, you can’t deny it.
“PLEASE ACCEPT THIS!”
“MUCH OBLIGED THANK YOU!”
NONONONO! bad slashfic ideas!
It’s not slashfic if it’s not gay. It’s just a lemon if it’s straight.
what if it’s a toy?
I’d make a Toy Story joke, but Ethan beat me to it.
sooooo Dorothy is flirting with Joyce, huh
hmmm, Maybe this is the alternate universe Walky and Dorothy end up together (assuming, of course, that the Head alien was telling the truth)?
But Walky was also a doctor…I don’t think Telecommunications (thats his major, right?) has a doctorate program…
DOA is not that universe. I think Dor and Walky went to high school together in that one. Still could happen, though, I guess. David keeps me in the dark about that.
Is there any instant bondage in the dark?
Pervert! (kidding, kidding! xD)
I hope not….I really do…
only because that would break my allusion of the true love Walky and Joyce share anywhere in any universe…
I feel so sorry for Dorothy in that universe, though…hope shes less…erm, unfortunate in this universe >//<;;
Y’know, I wish that Mike and Billie were here to lord this moment over Walky for the rest of forever if (Read: When) he crashes and burns…
Gah! Sarah Avatar is not the Billie Avatar I’d been getting…
Between Dorothy trying to get out of a conversation with Walky and “I GIVE IT TO YOU”, the last two panels made me bust out laughing.
Walky knows how to woo a lady of the 21st century
THERE WERE NO DEXTER AND MONKEY MASTER EPISODES ON THAT CD.
Aww, I LOVE how easily Walky got excited! XDDDD
And now we know this is you Willis. Regretting telling us this? Probably not.
