You know you want that, Billie.
She’s worried that she’s a bottle away from tapping that.
You know it!
and knowing Billie, she already had a few bottles already.
That’s just to keep her breath minty fresh!
Love the “Damn my roommate is hot” look on Billie’s face in panel 3.
A half a bottle though in billie terms thats like three bottles.
You just know that Billie is secretly thinking: “No one gets to tap that but ME!”
They share a room so that should make it easier :p
Go for it Billie! You got our support!
Normally I’d point out that hooking up with your roommate is a terrible idea, but, uh, damn Sal. Hit that, Billie!
I will be very glad when “tap that” finally falls out of vogue as slang for sex.
You realize it’ll just be replaced by something else, right?
I don’t see the point of putting a hate on a particular slang. It’s just part of how language works.
That would require kegs and collectable card games no longer existing first.
“collectible card games”
I see what you did there. I liked it.
I still prefer it to “hit that”, though I’m pretty sure tapping wasn’t selected to suggest a more gentle approach.
It can always get worse:
“Double parking ahead!”
“There’s a journey I’d like to take into bizaare, alien geometries.”
“I’d make time for that lesson in carpentry.”
“She gets my rule 34. Twice. With an extra point for style.”
“We’d be like mantises!”
I dunno, I kinda like the rule 34 one.
Ah, well. They can’t all be lead.
“I’d give her a driver’s licence.”
Silly Billie, ships don’t belong on lakes.
Given past history, Willis probably intended that allusion.
I see what you did there.
i’d comment, but i can’t think of anything clean to say…
Billie reminds me of Calvin’s attempt to be “cool.”
The Calvin & Hobbes Calvin.
When you’re cool, the whole world bores you.
Billie should have gone with a sombrero. After all, what’s the point of being cool if you can’t wear a sombrero?
MICKEY MOUSE PANTS
IS there any other Calvin?
I decline to answer that one.
John Calvin? Not as cool as Calvin though. He’d need to be way more than 20% cooler for that.
Once again, my overinclination toward subtlety has backfired upon me.
What percentage of comments will be BilliexSal? Taking all bets!
At least 80% as of this post.
When my eyes first passed over “BilliexSal”, I read “Bisexual”.
Aww… at first I though you were talking about the strip tags. I would have gone wild over the appearance of a “BillexSal” tag!
It’s…breastakaboobical, chestakamammical, pendular globular fun!
Great globular gazongas!
She gats tig ol’ biddies. I’m talkin’ luv apples. Shirt kittens. Headlights. Front grips. Massively magnificent mammaries. What I’m trying to say is, she has BODACIOUS TA-TAS!!
…Wait, I think I did it wrong.
Tracts of Land!
I find the most erotic part of the woman is the boobies
She’s got an impressive range.
I believe Sal veritably possesses some quite extraordinarily spectacular mammary glands. I would like to posit my great happiness with the artist, David Willis, for his devotion to such quality work.
Translated for normal people: BOOBIES! Thnx Willis!
Tig Ol’ Bitties!
Or possibly presents.
What’s the boob version of DAT ASS? DEM TITTIES i guess?
I’m pretty sure its ‘DAT RACK’
I think Lordphulish was closer.
Wowzers. Looks like my next tattoo will simply say, “SAL.”
Cool, but what’s that about a pecksniffian puritan?
Woo, SEMME reference!
That was my first thought too
I can’t figure out which is worse: That I got the SEMME ref immidiately, or that I got it before my brain processed boobs.
The latter thing.
Just accept that geek referencing is slightly higher on your priority list than boobies.
Nope, just cartoon boobies.
Holy crap, there is a SEMME reference!
I don’t get it. Why would the group turn on her for taking off the jacket?
Billie is just jealous.
Of Sal’s tracts of land.
What Billie really wanted to say…
No, what she REALLY wanted to say:
*Smack* Bad Tucker! That was not the right kind of punchline for that joke!
Thank you for this.
Looks like Willis’ Butts Disease has gone into remission. Something new and glorious has taken its place, though.
A glorious Chest Infection.
If your avatar tonight is of Matsumoto Rangiku, that is indeed the correct icon for that comment.
Well spotted, I wasn’t sure anyone here would know who she is.
She is a bit obscure, coming from only one of the top-selling shonen series in America and Japan.
Well not obscure amongst anime/manga fans maybe but how many other a/m fans read this comic?
Really! I am into a/m, and have never heard of this one. Whelp, off to the internets.
Whaaaa you’ve never heard of Bleach? Really?
I mean, it’s a standard shounen action show, but it’s pretty freaking huge.
It’s as big as Matsumoto’s tracts of land!
Thank you. Most of your non-Willis avies are unknown to me, but I can usually recognize Bleach characters, especially well-endowed female characters! *G*
(Of which, I might add Bleach has a hefty share.)
Even in the Dumbing of Age universe, yellow stripes indicate members of SEMME.
(Note: SEMME here stands for Sal’s Extremely Mesmeric Mammary Extremities.)
So whats the club name gonna be for the fans of SEMME.
Ahahahaha. Perfect, Sal would totally be the top.
I support this clever wordslinging.
Damnit I dont know what that means but I know I should be laughing right now. Its so frustrating. D}:<
Meh. You’re better off not knowing. They’re yaoi/yuri/slash fan terms having to do with which partner is on the “offense” and which is “receiving” the attention which carry with them a host of stereotypes/tropes.
It’s also a very, very tired pun.
You’re not allowed to feign such world-weariness until you’ve first done a few decades of spinning in your own grave.
But Walky have that stripes shirt too which means…….THE IMAGE, IT BURNS!!!
Hell, it’s entirely possible that’s what it stands for in the Walkyverse, too. We never did find out.
Is Billie jealous of Sal’s….tracts of land?
Maybe but she wants to lay claim to those mountainous territories.
But I thought Billie have the mountains.
You hear anybody complaining about the Rockies?
Not that I heard off.
The boobs are always greener on the other side of the fence.
Especially if they’re Poison Ivy’s.
…or Seven of Nine.
Never knew that Seven of Nine was green. Then again, I never got the chance to watch Star Trek.
While I haven’t watched ST:V in years, I am fairly certain that 7 of 9′s chest was never green.
I have clearly failed you all.
This is what happens when you do papers instead of sleeping, and then go to work.
Redemption is mine!
Wait a tick… Borg technology tends to be very green. So, redemption aside, I wasn’t completely out to lunch!
But Uhura’s Orion roommate Gaila’s are, in the new movie…
Also, T’pol. (vulcans are green-tinted.)
But how green is her valley?
Eww. There should be a topical anti-bacterial ointment for that.
How well can Billie see Sal’s chest in panel 3? It doesn’t look like she’d get anymore than a glimpse of her back.
Ever seen a soap opera?
She’s looking at Sal’s reflection in the fourth wall. …Which a thousand fans of this comic just tore to pieces trying to get at Sal.
Boobs are just great.
Even mean old people and foolish children like boobs!
So, boobs bring people together?
and when boobs get together, CLEAVAGE happens.
And sexy carwashes.
Only as long as she wears less leather and more LATHER.
Less leather than she’s wearing out? =O
Also LATHER is NOT a misprint.
Girls With Slingshots?
Everybody likes boobs, honey.
You’ve just seen some boobs, Billie. How do you feel?
Like a champion. Of sexy.
Now see, I ruin this for everybody with a few words.
This is ACTUALLY anomaly Walky.
When you look that good, who needs advice.
My advice is for her to keep her jacket open from now on.
And stay pantsless.
The gauntlet’s been thrown down, Billie. It’s time to show us the goods (again?).
P.S.L. that is all
Reposted from the 1st
Well, an entire ship has just been launched based on Billie’s expression in the third panel.
I am 100% sure Willis knows this. Curse him!
Also a rule 34 page…..
Willis, this is TOTALLY fan service. I am hereby calling you on it.
One more thing. Slightly changed from the meme, but….
THANK YOU WILLIS!
I AM NOT COMPLAINING.
I love the look on Sal’s face in the last panel for some reason. She looks genuinely shocked at being shoved off.
Evidence for the Willis Lesbianularity hypothesis continues to accrue at an alarming rate.
Hot damn. I and my Leslie avatar approve.
Office hours are right the hell now, then?
She wants that all to herself.
And yet she never put out that cigarette.
I guess you could say that Sal’s really… SMOKIN’ HOT.
Oh well done, sir.
Animalsplosion in 3…2…1…
I’m kind of disappointed he hasn’t shown yet. You’d think he’d have a sixth-sense for this sort of thing.
It is cold/flu season. His Sixth-Sense could be on the fritz.
I was passed out in a Reno hotel room after a long day of auditing. I’m sure as hell woke up good now.
All is right with the world again.
Does that cigarette in panel 3 look suggestive to anyone else?
No, Dr. Freud, it does not. Now tell me about these dreams you’ve been having about your nickel-plated mother…
Is it bad that the first thing I looked at in panel 3 was Sal’s waist?
Okay. This is ten times better than Sal being pantsless.
I have a Walky avatar and I approve this message.
Hey there guys what going on?
What? I’m not sayin’ it.
I didn’t realize untill now that Walky is alone on the beach with his current crush, his two other-universe girlfriends, his hot sister, and, uh, his childhood friend? I forget what his actual relationship with Billie is, though in DoA it seems they know each other from before.
They went to High School together.
This Joe gravatar makes my comment look a lot more suggestive than I was intending.
Yeah, “They went to High School together,” comes off as innuendo next to that face.
They stayed after class together, if you know what I mean.
BOW CHICKA BOW WOW
You know what would be even better? If I made exceptionally lude comments with this automatically-assigned-gravatar.
I sure do love to touch as many nipples as possible!
As fun as it is to ship them . . . Billie is clearly freaking out because in a hotness competition, Sal is superior.
Problem: With Sal looking like that, how will Billie attract boys?
Solution: Hide Sal!
Why can’t it be both jealousy and arousal? Maybe BIllie doesn’t even know about the second component herself.
Remember, this is Willis we’re talking about. The character relationships ARE going to get as convoluted as possible.
Truly, hers is the superior… intellect.
SEMME makes bra’s?
And that’s totally what I’m going to imagine SEMME as being in this universe now.
SEMME – protecting your secrets since 1998!
Naw, Alexander Krizak already figured out what SEMME means up above.
Is Billie worried about Sal upstaging her? That’d almost seem weird given that the only guy around is Walky, who I doubt Billie cares about, but then I guess it could just be a basic ego thing where she wants the other girls to see her as the hottest one amongst them.
Billie knows Hot Biker Chick trumps Easy Cheerleader in the Center Of Attention category.
Yeah this confuses me too. You worried about Sal stealing Walky’s attention away from you, Billie? That’s wrong on several levels.
Maybe it’s just habit.
There may be other guys at this lake.
She already showed signs of being jealous of Sal… I don’t think it’s a boy thing as much as it is a coolness thing.
And the fandom rejoiced
Nice. Gotta lose the cigarette, though. Never been able to deal with cigarettes.
Ditto. I can’t drool over her as long as she smokes.
It’s easy – just employ the standard male gaze. What she has above the neck, if anything, becomes largely irrelevant.
If you plug your nose, maybe.
Maybe this will help?
Now it can be a lollipop!
Animal? Where are you? This one’s DEFINITELY for you.
Sorry, was just cleaning… something… up.
I could come and help if you want.
You know how I know you’re gay?
…XD Gotta love a good Seth Rogen reference.
Awwwww yeah. Christmas in December.
I…I…I just ascended to Nirvana. A schmexy Southern gal who takes issue with authority and smokes? I can’t even see the ground anymore.
I’ll be in my bunk…
OH MAI GAWD SHE IS- No… No… your mature… You can handle… eerg…. I can handle it…
GAH IT’S TOO HARD TO RESIST THE SEXINESS D:
Panel Three would make some great desktop wallpaper…
Other things aside, is anyone else surprised that Sal just agreed to Billie’s suggestion to hang out with them without any hesitation?
There was a bit of hesitation.
love the SEMME stripe on Sal’s top nice touch
Hey, she knew she was going to the beach. Of course she’d bring Semmewear.
I’d just like to take the opportunity to say: *rowr*
I made some new Gravatars from this strip. I almost used the one of Billie from panel 3, because I’m shaped more like her, because I wear glasses, and because I’d have a similar reaction to what Sal is doing.
But I went with panel 1 Sal, because my hair is closer to own than black, because I smoke, and because that’s the expression my face usually has on it (especially when I have to be around other people).
P.S.: Billie is totally trying to get Sal alone in that last panel. I can’t say I blame her…
You know, it wasn’t until this post that I noticed the wordplay in your posting-name. Love it!
I guess I speed read way too much, or am not concerned so much with who is male and female when posting. In all probability a combination of the two.
And I just realized that you’re Tucker! Now all we need is Church and Tex.
And Sarge. Maybe Simmons. And Grif. Lopez. Doc. Wash. And…
You called, dirtbag?
I can see it now:
“My name is MICHELLE J Caboose, and I HATE BABIES!”
You’re making me want to watch the O’Malley saga in RedVSBlue again and just imagine Caboose as a lady with a deep voice. I should tell Joel Heyman that next time I’m at PAX.
I know most people like Caboose because he’s the “stupid-stupid one,” or because he gets most of the best lines — but the reason he’s my favorite is because he’s got a kind heart, he means well, and he’ll do anything for his friends.
Okay, and because he gets to say things like “My name is Michael J. Caboose, and I HATE BABIES!” and “I WILL EAT YOUR UNHAPPINESS!” ^_^
I take it a “Caboosisms” Poster would make a great christmas present then…
*Sal drops her jacket. Billie’s glasses fall. Billie pushes Sal off panel*
*sees Davis giving us a thumbs a up and a smile*
What resolution can your monitor possibly be that you had to scroll down to see Walky giving you a big thumbs up about boobies and inciting perverse sexual lust?
Dunno about him but I run at 1024 x 768. The page heading and comic exactly fill the browser window. And it looks good.
Looking bad, they both fit on the screen, I just had to scroll down to have Davis in the MIDDLE of the screen.
I don’t believe I’ve mentioned how much I love the fact that, in a strip that usually uses two-to-three color shading and uses it relatively lightly, that Billie’s glasses get a loving four-color treatment, just because they’re just that cool.
That is an unbelievably astute observation.
Naw, CS guy – opposite end of the scale really. However I do take a certain mild interest in the details of art and composition, and am somewhat a nitpicker of details (note the next post below this one). Plus those shades are meant to be noticed!
It’s absolutely a compliment! As a connoisseur of details, I do have a tendency to think beyond the art of a media form and miss little clever details like that. You know, seeing it as a package; albums vs songs.
I think it shows in my reverence for innovation in video game graphics, but my relative lack of indifference to it as a matter of enjoyment in the post Half-Life 2 era of gaming.
And by lack of indifference, I mean indifference or lack of caring. Apparently I got the two thoughts/methods crossed XD
I’d like to note that, taken literally, the staging of panel three makes no sense: All Billie would be seeing is a massive batch of waist long hair, and a bit of jacket sliding off the bottom. She has no view of Sal’s hawtness; arguably she wouldn’t even be able to tell she only has a bikini top on.
However, the panel’s staging isn’t meant to be taken literally; the characters are positioned so we can see both the reaction and the cause, they are scaled in proportion to Billie’s sudden sense of inferiority, and arguably Billie is positioned towards the back to again emphasize her sudden secondary position. Awesome.
I posited, about halfway up the page, that Walky is channeling a soap opera in this strip.
Sal’s hawtness is transcendent; it is obvious and overwhelming from any angle, under any circumstances.
If you note first Billie was ahead of Sal. As Sal started to pass, Billie could see, and thus stop in amazement of the cleavage, which led to her current position behind Sal in the third panel. Run on sentence and own interpretation of the scene, but that is what I see.
Willis, if you don’t make the third panel into a poster or something, I will. And I’ll sell it. And make money. And you get none.
I just realized that Sal was wearing her motorcycle jacket/gloves on the bus.
Not to nitpick, but as a rider…those things (namely sports bike jackets) are distinctly uncomfortable if you’re doing anything other than riding a motorcycle or fighting off the zombie apocalypse in what amounts to modern leather armour.
But its not about comfort. Its about COOL
This is Sal. The zombie apocalypse could strike at any minute, and when it does, she’s gonna be prepared, dagnabit!
SLAP SOME D’S ON THE BITCH!
That gravatar…. Just so much better.
Okay, is anybody else disturbed by Ethan-gravatar getting excited about boobs, and Joyce-gravatar being happy about it?
Have I slipped into Mirror-DOA-verse?
Who’s got two thumbs and is happy with their avatar juxtaposition?
What a set of bazongas.
She’s got all the social acumens she needs.
does anyone else the saxophone music the 3rd panel, or is it just me?
>Turn on you
I don’t think I caught that my first time reading through.
