She’s a teleporter. The dinosaurs gave her the ability.
i was thinking the hat.
Dina used TELEPORT.
Dina has been returned to your party.
That’s how she got there. Inside of balls, with a packed up boner shirt.
But then there’s the question of the backpack… Perhaps it was already inside the shrinking and expanding balls of storage?
She learned it from the T-Rex from Jurassic Park.
Where the F*** did Wally get the mcnuggets?
If he had them on the bus they’re probably all gross and slimy by now…
He actually just keeps a box stashed inside his hoodie pretty much 24/7.
I’m not sure that you are ready to know that answer yet.
NO $#!+, THERE SHE WAS…
I see they’ve finally started putting Mcdonald’s Expresses on buses now….
*Crazy Eye Twitch* What!?
The McMobile is McDonalds way of making sure that there is no place left on Earth you can escape from them.
Didn’t they have toto give up on Iceland?
Toto as in the dog or the band?
Pretty sure they have McDonalds in Iceland, they have KFC for certain. Though they either import the chicken or it is really puffin.
I know i’m lovin’ it! My gall bladder is cryin’ for mercy though
The question you should ask yourself is… why don’t the mcnuggets get a tag?
I have a feeling that Willis might just do just that quite soon.
You Win 10,000 Internet for being the first person to notice that!
Dang, I could have won. I noticed but just didn’t bother to say anything! =P
I’m afraid we need to take back 9,999 of those internets because you didn’t aske “where’s”.
He’s probably American.
We know Wally as ‘Waldo.’
Almost forgot our bros up North.
speak for yourself, you’re the first person I’ve seen ever refer to Waldo like that…….dang it, now I want to find my Waldo books.
Chickens may not have nuggets but Walky sure does!
Made them materialize with MIEND POWERZ!
Walky will always have mcnuggets wherever he goes… Always. Just dont ask how.
fitty fo’ ten dolla!
“I dub thee Boner Girl.”
May your rein be long and full of hardship.
Good sir, might I award you an internet?
May her kingdom never come upon hard times.
Ahh there it is. Thank you good sir, I wanted to fit the word hard in there but couldn’t quite get it right.
You couldn’t quite fit it in?
“THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!”
And may her reign be devoid of hard decisions.
May she promote hard science.
May she use HARDen to up her defense whenever necessary.
If it becomes too taxing to use harden, may be be awarded…
…wait for it…
Here it comes! A PP UP!
And her valleys never beset by bandits…
And a bridal cut close to the jib. Unless, of course, you meant “reign”, in which case Dina is most definitely not horse-like.
I humbly surrender my awarded internet to you.
…She has to take off her shirt first.
Yay Dina made it! Now, she magically needs a swimsuit in that backpack.
Wait… when did Walky get the nuggets?
You don’t need a swimsuit for skinny dipping.
Oh god just watch Joyce faint at that idea.
Poor Joyce, the idea might freak her out so much, she will block out the whole day and Dotty gets a “Get Out Of Church” card.
But Dotty is one of the few people who would go anyway. She comes off as very Lawful Good.
What does that make Joyce and the others then?
Joyce is also Lawful Good, just an opposing faction. Walky is Chaotic Good, Sal is Chaotic Neutral and I think Dorothy is a True Neutral
I thought all true neutrals were supposed to be batshit insane?
No, that’s Chaotic Neutral.
Walky struck me as Chotic Retarded.
Walky = CG (like minsk in baldur’s gate )
Joyce = LG
Sal = CN
Dorothy = LG
Sarah = NG (or LN cause of what happened with with her last roommate)
Amber = not enough data
Billie = N
Amazi-girl= LG (like batman)
I get that right?
Actually, Amazi-Girl would probably be closer to Neutral Good, since vigilantism is actually illegal. Unless alignments have changed dramatically with 4th Edition, Lawful characters have always been described as “obeying the laws of the land.”
Ugh. I really have to stop being such a nerd…
Or Walky, since he’s the only guy among five girls.
Wooo! Anime harem complete with swimsuit episode!
And considering Dina’s lack of social skills, she might actually not object to it.
Yeah, that! It’s the nuggets that threw me far more than anything else…
Come to think of it, I’m having a hard time imagining 50 nuggets fitting in that little box. Walky’s doing all kinds of sorcery right now.
Unless the box is longer than it is wide I GUESS
Hijinks shall ensue.
Yeah, that about sounds right. Aside from any environmental issues. I don’t think that was covered yet.
Now whenever Dotty talks, I will imagine her speaking in Lisa Simpson’s voice.
If she sounds like that, then we need to have at least two cast members voiced by Tress McNeal.
Now imagine Walky voiced like Ralph Wiggum.
I thought that was a legal minimum for any english language animation?
I thought that was a legal requirement actually. Every animated show is required to have Tress McNeal as a voice actress.
I’d sure like to get a piece of that!
*looks at 50 piece Mcnuggets)
But does he have any sauce?
I finally get what that stain on his shirt is. Walky’s been saving some dipping sauce for the beach.
ColdMcnuggs need no sauce. They just need manliness! Oh… Walky gonna need some sauce.
There was a guy like that who used to hang out with us in high school. You’d be out somewhere with a bunch of people, and you’d notice this guy was there in the back of the car, but nobody ever remembered where you picked him up… he was just there. We used to call him the Extra Slice.
I wonder if Sal realizes how silly she looks wearing full leather on the beach. Honestly, I think she just has a kill bill fetish.
She would be doing us all a favour if she wore lather instead.
I second that motion!
well i dont know how shes gonna change out of it. i don’t think locker rooms HAVE windows to climb through… lord knows how other people get in there
If memory serves, when windows fail her Sal goes through the roof.
Memory does serve. I know exactly what scene you’re talking about.
In It’s Walky when she and Jason are breaking into Jason’s fathers base.
Boom, that crazy ginger didn’t see it coming!
It will take a good deal of effort for me to not now hear Dorothy’s dialogue in Lisa’s voice.
Haha, Lisa Simpson sounds right.
My brain just cutesploded.
… and they call me…. BULLETPROOF
Billie’s here to kick ass and chew bubble gum, AND SHE’S ALL OUT OF GUM.
“They live!” or “Duke Nukem”?
why is walky carrying a box that says OBEY?
I’m more concerned about the fact that a lot of people in the bank I just went into are trading pieces of paper saying “This is your God.”
Doesn’t matter how she got there, she will have fun
she won’t if nobody tells her to.
Dina: “Where am I?”
*Next panel* “And where are my pants?”
Also, Walky apparently still has abductee powers even in this universe. At least as they apply to McNuggets.
“Pants? Where we are going, we don’t need pants!”
You forgot to put on your sunglasses before you said that.
We won’t need sunglasses, either.
So it looks like dorathy wont be woke up on time
You mean Brunette Dorothy.
Amber needs no more Wow sauce. Er… brunette Dotty.
Kinda saw this one coming.
I’m starting to think DoA Dina is one of the Silence from teh new Dr. Who. Everyone just forgets she exists when they aren’t looking directly at her.
One of the whatnow?
I don’t know, but something tells me we should kill them on sight.
The Silence were a new Dr. Who villain introduced in because some writer thought the Daleks had become ineffectual and wanted to come up with a new idea. They actually were a real neat idea, but were sort of ruined by Season 6.
Something tells me that Deus Ex Machina will save us.
Something tells me that someone missed the joke.
*spots 2 tally marks on his arm*
I also wouldn’t be surprised to see pieces of these comments missing tomorrow. Of course, how could I having forgotten they existed?
*Now 7 tally marks on arm*
Wow now i feel ridiculously stupid ;p.
Oh no, I just took a lovely Doctor Who reference, and went excessively high-brow with it. Because, you know, high-brow media references are fu-
-spots 47 tally-
Seriously, why would anyone tally up to 47? Just write “LOTS”. They were very stubborn about the method they used.
The tally’s happen progressively. I’m not exactly sure why I’m tallying.
103? Oh my.
I don’t think ….somebody…. likes references to Deus Ex Machina in Doctor Who plots.
Walky’s smile is the funniest thing I’ve seen today.
When did Sal become den mother?
She considers herself the only halfway-sensible person in the area.
And it’s true, but not in the way she thinks it is.
If Joyce is Pollyanna, does that mean that slowly but surely we’re all going to become joyous and grateful because of her influence?
Would Ruth be the Anti-Pollyanna then?
Since when did Sal become the mother hen of the group?!? Did she claim that title when telling everyone “you don’t tell the cops boop” a few strips back.
I guess this means Amber’s not getting woken up at 2?
Nope, well not by Dina at least.
But her raid. Hopefully she was DPS, otherwise her guild may struggle with finding a replacement.
Now Dina will have to wake Amber up with the telepathic link all roommates share.
I know you’re being sarcastic, but seriously, my roommates and I sometimes have the same dreams at night. It is seriously creepy.
Is this the storyline where Dina meets the guy who drew the dino on the notes she mistakenly got?
Heh, Lisa Simpson… That is kind of appropriate!
Dina’s expression and gaze almost makes me feel like she’s asking me the same question. She can pierce through the fourth wall!
poor Dina, although it was expected.so aodrable. xD
God, I love Dina! She’s gotta be the most adorable character.
You’ve been abducted by aliens Dina. This is their mothership.
If only Dina have some al-foil under her hat, she would have remained undetected.
No Walky, you are the aliens.
And then Walky was the Ch-
Why do you insist on using a new avatar every ffffing day?
It’s in my contract!
I have been reading to much LICD. I thought Walkie was holding a box of condoms.
In which case, the fact that he’s staring at Sal with a huge grin on his face could be a little disturbing.
McNuggets is Walky code for condoms. Blowing through 50 with a girl in a night is just standard game for him.
And they stain on his shirt?
Nevermind. Some things are best left unsaid.
Yup, your not the only one.
When we first met Sal, she had her motorbike suit zipped up to the collar. Then she took it off. When she next put it on, it was zipped up, but not to the collar (as it appears in panel 4 here). Then she took it off again. Next time she put it on, it was zipped up to the collar – and it has remained that way up to, and including, panel 1 in this comic.
Continuity up to this strip, but not in this strip. Maybe she was taking it off, to reveal the swimsuit underneath, when she noticed Dina and stopped abruptly?
I just noticed the discrepancy in this comic and looked up the archive comics tagged with ‘Sal’. I haven’t always been staring at Sal’s chest, really.
Perhaps it’s hot on the beach, and this was her concession to the temperature.
Got a few random quotes in my head that seem to fit this scenario. They may or may not be paraphrasing:
“Am I outside? I got lost…”
“I think I was sitting beside you for the last 20 minutes. You sure you don’t remember me?”
“I knew I shouldn’t have taken a left at Albuquerque.”
The whole time, I’m just wondering, “HOW DID NO ONE SEE HER IN THE BUS?!”
Well, it is a bus. There are often persons on the bus you don’t know. It just they weren’t expecting any of those persons to follow them out of the bus and stand around with them afterwards.
Have any of these people met Dina before?
Well, Dina was at Ruth’s dorm meeting on day 1 with Sal, Dorothy, and Billie.
Well, Dorothy and Billie anyway. I’m fairly certain that Sal evaded Ruth’s long arm.
I’m trying to match other DoA characters to characters from the Simpsons… Going through the DoA cast list in order:
Joyce = Helen Lovejoy
Sarah = … Maybe Marge?
Billie = Sherri or Terri
Walky = Ralph Wiggum (sorry, Walky)
Sal = Armin Tamzarian (in his younger years)
Dorothy = Lisa Simpson (established)
Danny = Milhouse
Joe = Disco Stu… or Duffman?
Mike = Bart Simpson? Hank Scorpio? Herman? Snake?
Ruth = Lindsey Naegle
Ethan = Lenny or Carl. Probably Carl.
Amber = Lisa with brown hair (from ep. 20, season 21, “To Surveil With Love”)
Dina = ??? A mixture of Krusty the Clown and Wendell, maybe?
Roz = Katja or Vicky. Probably Katja. 100 points if you recognise both of these names from the Simpsons.
Amazi-Girl = Bartman.
Becky = Maude Flanders. Because she’s Joyce’s friend, and we haven’t heard from her in a very long time.
I thought we were supposed to pretend the whole Tamzarian thing never happened…
I don’t see Mike as Bart Simpson
If Mike had more presence, he could probably pull off being Bender.
Matt Groening series Bending…woo! Like girders.
Funny, because I always imagined Mike being voiced by John Dimaggio
And so it was that Dina found herself in: THE LAND OF THE LOST!
Wait, where’s …I mean Amber
Asleep. With her ambulatory alarm clock rather far away from her.
I’m kind of curious why there’s no “older” returning students in this series?
The fact there’s been a trend of ex-military veterans (just out of the recent two wars) who’ve gone back to higher education to “learn”. I’d be curious to see a few veterans put in this web comic as its about “college” life. Let them provide some wisdom to the main cast and be alternatives to the usual lets go see an advisor behavior that many n00bs in college do. Heck, even veterans get pawned and confused because they’re adjusting to civilian life. This could be webcomic gold.
Older or returning students are generally housed at a specific dorm building, Wilkie Hall, or its surrounding apartments. All of Dumbing of Age’s characters live on the third floor in Read Hall.
Poor Dina, she got caught in the stampede. Although, how no one noticed her on the bus, is beyond me.
Well, she’s kind of quiet.
SQUEE! *glomps Dina*
That’s just hilarious, but Amber will have some difficulty waking up, unless someone calls or lets her know the time.
In the immortal words of Dana Carvey:
I believe in silver linings, and that’s why I believe in you.
(Talk about obscure references. Man, what am I even doing?)
I liked Dina’s blank face in the last panel. *squee*
Wait….How come Sal has a southern accent and Walkie doesn’t? Twins, right?
WALKY LOOKS LIKE AN ANIME CAT! O.O
Whoops, wrong comic
Amber is gonna be late for school today.
A wizard did it.
