Well isn’t Billie just a beacon of joy and happiness?
Oh God, not again.
I just need you to know that I read both of your comments in Applejack’s voice.
As did we all.
i don’t watch ponies.
Join the herd.
We have cupcakes.
You mean these cupcakes?
Thanks, I’ll pass.
I… buh? wha? ::hides from that very, very strange link::
i… i think i’ll pass…
Cupcakes? Oh no. Don’t eat it alex, for your own good, don’t eat the cupcakes especially if it’s been serve by a pony.
Is that what it is?
Muahaha… I escaped… thanks to YOU.
Billie, you’re an inspiration to us all.
Seriously, someone should make a successory about her!
Creepy last panel is Creepy
Why… what… why are you here?
Also, happy deuteranniversary, Ethan!
If i were walky…
Walky: You’re right…LET’S SUCK FACE!!!!!!
Concisely told, Dorothy! Poor Joyce.
Also, here is the obligatory “ball-FAAAACE”
Damn, you beat me to it. Like your mom beat me off last night for a nickel.
With her… no wait…
aww man, i was waiting to use the man-gina joke again!
You got screwed. I went all the way for the nickel.
Or didn’t get screwed, anyway.
Without his penis then?
I’m like this every morning, sans the alcohol.
Maybe you need alcohol to make you feel better?
i know i do.
Is that icon coincidental?
Well OF COURSE Drunk Mike would.
Is it weird that I read that in Long John Baldry’s voice, then yelled out IRL “By Celestia’s Beard!”
That is an understatement.
Oh come on Billie, you can do better than that.
Hungover Billie is not my favourite.
Wow, Billie, you’re cheesy when you’re hung over.
Hungover Billie looks like a zombie.
So what does it sound like when you extend silent e like that?
All that drinking and she is merely hung over? She had enough to give Superman alcohol poisoning!
She have a clock work liver just like Kenshin.
Maybe she barfed a lot..
That is Billie’s abductee power.
Willis, I thought we weren’t going to see any of this abductee crap again!
It’s more likely to be the result of Scottish/Irish ancestry power.
Her liver is iron
Her liver is why the alarm goes off at airport security.
Man, we play off each other so well, don’t we?
We do at times, it’s a matter of if we are in the zone or not.
If you didn’t drink you wouldn’t be hungover!
That’s Sober Logic ™ right there.
Have about two and a half drinks, and you’ll see things differently.
I don’t drink.
If you didn’t sober up, you wouldn’t be hung over, either.
No Billie, what you NEED is water and maybe some Vitamin B.
All she needs is love!
for a nickel.
With Billie, it’s free.
The first one’s free. Every time after can be yours for 5 easy payments of $19.95!
Or any amount of alcohol
It’s very expensive alcohol.
And other Beatles songs.
Don’t know if it was intentional but that cluster of thumbtacks behind Joyce in panel one are like those *bloop-bloop* foggy bubbles of confusion, but done subtley. Neat.
“Holy crap! Dorothy, you just verbed two never-before-verbed nouns in one 22-word sentence! Are you Shakespeare? Should I be following you around with an app that listens to your sentences for further neologisms, and then posts them directly to Urban Dictionary?”
“Walky, stop linguisting! It’s out of character for you! Joyce is seriously residual-traumaing and maybe identity-crisising, and even though we interventioned last night, we’re still going to be responsibling until we’ve helped her through the Kubler-Rossing.”
Glass has been verbed before. Perhaps not in that sense, though.
I’ve heard “glassed” being used in that sense a lot.
Yes, though it makes me think of Joyce as the Covenant, dealing with Ryan from orbit. . .
Yes. In the Halo games, the Covenant forces have a procedure they perform on the surfaces of enemy planets they wish to depopulate. Apparently, it involves superheating the planetary surface, and is called “glassing.” A planet that has been thus treated is referred to as having been “glassed.”
I like to think this is what Dorothy is referring to when she says “then Joyce glassed him.” But I suppose “punched him in the face with a glass” works almost as well…
Wow, rereading that, I realize how much that first paragraph makes me sound like a nerd.
I mean, I am a nerd, but that paragraph really makes me sound like one. :/
It’s also a fairly common euphemism in modern sci-fi for nuking a place.
The origin of that is, of course, the way sand becomes glass if you superheat it. So if you go to, for example, the first nuclear bomb test site, the whole patch of desert got melted and fused into glass. Kind of cool, in a REALLY eerie sort of way. Basically, that’s what the Elites did to most of Asia. Or Africa. Or wherever it was.
Which is why I prefer to think that this is what Joyce did to Ryan. ^_^
Whenever I hear of somebody being glassed, all I can think of is the ‘straya day video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4AchHTN-XQ
Yep, certainly in the UK it’s understood to refer to being hit in the face with a broken bottle or glass. The newspapers even use it.
Intervened. It’s already a word.
Next you’ll be saying we should say ‘use’ instead of ‘utilize’ and then the Bureaucracy won’t want to hire you anymore.
I’m still Happy-Joyce!
Responsibling is what Walky is to Sal, I guess.
Responsibling is what rappers who want to be good role models wear.
hee hee that one made me smile
I just realized that it’s only a matter of time before Billie is mistaken for a D&D affectionado expressing a preference.
Speaking of nightmares, hung-over Billie has a scary face.
Billie’s gonna look 45 by the time she reaches 25 if she doesn’t change her lifestyle.
“Don’t feel bad, Billie! Some guys love a more mature woman. Excluding the fact you still party like a teenager, you are the perfect image of one!”
Especially with your huge….tracts of land.
Depends on whenever you prefer Tubs’ tract of land or Jugs’ sweater puppies more.
That just makes it easier to acquire booze without an ID.
So there is an upside…
At least she still believes in justice!
Oh good, he can tell her about the pajama jeans now.
he can tell everyone about them all at once at the same time!
and thus, the PJ jeans become the newest best-seller since the Snuggie.
I bet Walky already has one of those.
I can totally see him owning one.
You say that, Billie, but wait ’til you see these pants.
THESE GODDAMN PANTS.
And suddenly calling somebody ballface causes everyone to forget about tragedy for a moment. Bravo Billie. If you were real, I would drink with you always if only for the hung over mornings. ( Annnnd if my avatar is still Ruth, then Beerios sexy times. ;D )
There’s a bit too much an inappropriate mix of seriousness and humour that’s leaving a funny taste in my mouth.
It only taste funny because Billie hasn’t showered.
I don’t know about that, but I was really annoyed with Billie’s entrance in to this scene. I wanted to see what Walky’s reaction was after the first shock of hearing it, but now Billie is likely to monopolize t he conversation or at least insert distracting comments.
Hey look, the DRAGONS shirt.
Related thought: Does Billy realise the irony of her nerd-hating ways whilst wearing a shirt with DRAGONS emblazoned on the front?
Nerds don’t own dragons!
Just like how hockey doesn’t own ducks.
But, like hockey has the mightiest ducks, nerds have the mightiest dragons. WE WIN!
Now we need to see Ruth wearing a shirt that says “Dovahkiin.”
Quick Billie! mix raw egg, ginger and Guiness beer in a big glass, warm it up and drink it!
Hang over cure? not really, but it going to be so horrible she will snap out if it!
Dammit Walky, hug Joyce! Do it!
You hug that girl this instant!
May not be the greatest idea right now.
Why? It’s not like she’s got physical memory of the assault and it doesn’t look to me like any of the other folk there are being very physically comforting. I think he should probably ask if he can hug her of if she would like a hug, but I don’t see why being hugged by a friend would be a bad.
Greatest idea or not, I can’t look at Panel 2 and NOT want her to get all of the hugs.
…I’m not really seeing a marked decrease in quality of insult.
I think it’s more that she actually had to stop and think about it, rather than it just rolling off her tongue automatically.
“Who put this Walky here?” I love this line, more than “and then Sarah baseball-batted him.”
Cos she would rather have the other Walky(Sal) instead.
That kind of raises the question of which Walkerton she finds less annoying. Hmmm…
A better question would be: Which Walkerton is more shippable with Billie?
Why choose? Why not ship both?
Billie you’re so clever.
This comic doesn’t have enough Dina in it.
what are you talking about? she’s been in every strip to date!
wasn’t ballface a dick tracy villain?
No, he was Butters from “South Park.”
At least I… wait… something… you… insult…
C’mon, Walky, use that one.
What for? Billie’s kind of used it already.
This is how imagine this will go:
Sarah will kick Billie out of the room and Walky (her only “friends”) will finally understand she’s been treating him like crap and give her the cold shoulder.
Then Billie will notice how pathetic she really is (unwanted, lonely and drunk), and will break down.
If things don’t go this-way-ish, I’ll be deeply disappointed.
But Walky is used to Billie treating him this way. Why would he suddenly wise up just ’cause Sarah kicked Billie out? Also, given that Billie was of some help the night before, I’m not 100% sure Sarah will kick her out unless she does something to upset Joyce .
Billie should eat my Gravatar, maybe with some fried bread and several litres of OJ.
I think I’m mostly happy about the “this walky commnet. makes me think she’s encountered more, and more walkys wpuld make the world a better place
