Math books taught themselves.
That, or they’re part rabbit.
Has Mike been stealing other people’s math books and putting them in there?
Man’s a ninja of douchebaggery.
Probably. Mike’s douchebaggery is at the level that he never bought a book at all, he’s been stealing one from another student in the classroom every time he needs one. If the extra books are found, Walky gets the blame, if not, he makes a killing at the end of the semester when they buy books back. It’s win-win for Mike.
I think it’s also to mess with Walkie’s mind to make him think his books are reproducing…
Walkie seperating his books: “NO SEX!”
Later, Walkie is seen sleeving his text books in condoms while attracting stares of others.
HAHA! Ethan really has that sixth sense,
Aww, poor Walky. Here’s hoping Mike doesn’t draw a dick on him while he sleeps.
That’s way too tame for Mike.
Ohhh, you, having hope that Mike won’t do something like that.
Mike won’t draw a dick on Walky. He’ll put a real dick on Walky.
On his face!
Don’t you mean his faaaaaaaaaaaaaaace?
…with his penis.
For a nickel.
They’re math books; they’re born with this knowledge.
Yeah, but you know the adage, those who can’t do, teach.
Hey, college textbooks cost a lot. Sell the extras.
Mike’s reaction will be worth far more than the money.
unlike your mom who mike overpaid for
Worst nickel ever spent.
That’s probably just part of Mike’s plan- suddenly Walky’s framed for theft.
I like Mike’s especially sour expression in the second panel.
Coupled nicely with an expressive hand gesture I missed the first time through.
I love how they’re talking about Mike as if he isn’t right behind them. Giving them the finger. And plotting the banging of someone’s mom. For a nickel.
And Mike won’t speak up because, frankly, it’s all true.
You know, what’s Ethan’s saying is probably more of dick move than most of what Mike does. Well, except for when Mike’s punching people.
Mike’s math books banged your backpack.
for a nickel.
In the butt.
I thought it was in the FAAAAACE.
Oh, I actually gave into the meme. I feel so dirty…
With their penis.
your mom = $.05 x Joe^FAAAAACE
The math doesn’t lie.
i wonder if they don’t even see mike there. walky needs to learn that multiplication is implied in math books. forgive the pun.
I’m amused at Mike being on the receiving end of this for once.
He certainly looks angry about it. Well, a different sort of angry than the usual.
I wonder if he really cares about what they think about him, or if he’s just taking an opportunity to flip someone off
Had a good chuckle out of this strip. MORE!
Textbooks naturally multiply. it’s part of the cycle of life. See, they consume money for food, and then mate while you’re not looking, giving birth to $50 tomes that you have to read by Tuesday.
So Mike either bought several of the same text book to stuff in Walky’s bag, or he’s been stealing other people’s text books. The most likely and cost effective is the latter.
When has Mike ever treated cost as an impediment to his random acts of malice?
Though granted, given how many more people would be inconvenienced, stealing’s still the more likely option.
I like to imagine Mike is offering to carry other people’s books for them.
And then just never giving them back? Brilliance!
The second the book reaches his hands he punches you in the face and runs like the dickens.
Runs like the dickens carrying a college math textbook? Are we sure he doesn’t have abductee powers in this universe?
I think it’s just a joke that he has a bunch of heavy math texts.
I guess not since the juxtaposition of some other sap being stuck as Mike’s roommate, and then showing his roommate, but I’ve felt that way about books regardless of their actual number, haha.
Also, we’ve seen Mike putting his textbooks in Walky’s backpack in several previous strips.
Several? I only remember the one strip.
I love that, even though they’re in totally different places right now, it looks like Joyce is peering into panel four to give Walky a look of concern and dissaproval.
Well, Walky, you see…
When a mommy math textbook and a daddy math textbook love each other VERY, VERY much–
Ok I’ll stop right there Dx;;;
So I wonder how Joyce’ll react when she finds out Ethan’s gay. Smart money’s on another freakout, but personally, I could see Joyce being one of those “love the sinner, hate the sin” types and trying to save her new from damnation through buttsex.
As in, Ethan’s damned through buttsex. Not that Joyce will try to save him through buttsex. Although you never know…
I think that’s the most face-on we’ve ever seen Mike, isn’t it?
How did this comment end up here? Oh never mind.
Say did we find out who is Ethan’s roommate?? Maybe its Jacob. Or Faz.
….while I normally harbor perverse sexual lust for Joyce (when she’s not being a twit) I think I’m finally sick of her sweater vest/polo combo.
-holds up the famous yellow dress- Try this!
Oooooh, Walky. You are my favorite character.
Math books contain the concept of the fractal. This explains everything.
Not sure where in Ohio you are in Willis and how close to Cinci you are, but tornadoes are moving north.
He’s in C-bus
Poor Joyce’s head is going to explode when she finds out Ethan’s gay. I see another hiccup fit in her near future, followed by a well intentioned but very naive “Have you ever tried not being gay?” and then lots of awkward “I like you, friend, and awkwardly support the fact that you’re gay! Come to Jesus!” actions.
Depends on how devotedly she has read her bible, and then dedicated it to memory. Somewhere in Deuteronomy, it says that two men shall not lie as a man and woman shall lie.
Lesbians, however, are awesome.
After reading the comments, it is apparent that Willis has created the meme-iest comic ever.
For your information, Mike and I bang every night in the most epic of hate-fucks.
This isn’t love, it’s blackmail.
And the price is a nickel.
I didn’t think Walky would catch on so quickly.
Then again, I didn’t think Mike would just keep cramming more and more of the same textbook into his backpack…
Least you can sell the extras for cash…
Liking Mike’s signaling in the second panel.
Hey, look at that, Walky finally decided to check his bag to find out why it got heavier after certain classes. Now, how long is it going to take for him to figure out it is his roommates?
Dammit! If he’d just kept dragging the books around for a few more months he’d have learned the kamehameha wave!
No, I think you’re a bit confused on the continuity there. Carrying around a heavy backpack teaches you how to fly; the kamehameha wave requires active concentration. And I don’t especially like Dragon Ball, either!
Now shipping: Mike and Walky.
Oh, I think not.
Nobody will get in the way of my Ethan/Mike ship!
What about a Walky/Ethan/Mike ship? Then everyone can be happy (except Joyce).
Mike likes Joyce and Joyce will try to set Ethan straight.
I have foreseen this.
Mike likes Joyce BECAUSE she’ll try to set Ethan straight, and Mike finds the futility of her desires amusing?
your avatar makes the last bit so much more amusing.
I think Joyce might be feeling guilty to having Mike hit the sexist idiot. (I know his name but because of his lack of respect for the opposite sex I refuse to say it)
Doesn’t matter what universe, Joyce is still So CUTE.
I’m amazed that this was only brought up once.
WHO IS ETHAN’S ROOMMATE?!?
Faz? Drew? Beef? Thad? Willis himself?
I like the last idea… xD “Ethan vs. Willis: The Origin Story”
Willis vs. ethan would be the ultimate stryline!
