But I like sweat pants—at least in winter.
Same here. Also, when it’s raining.
I used to be OK with being out in the rain but now, I just find it annoying.
Clearly you don’t live in Seattle
Or when I’m on my period.
You talking about rain or sweatpants?
Who’s the avvi of the day, Plasma? She looks familiar.
…wait, Bekah sounds like a girl’s name. Forget I said something.
….but if it didn’t, that would’ve been quite judgemental of you!
She is Rika Yoshitake from Genshiken.
I like sweat pants for around the house, but I don’t wear them out.
Agreed. I also wear pajama pants and sports shorts. But outside? Jeans or dress pants. It’s practically a law.
I never wear long-sleeve shirts unless it’s for a VERY formal occassion and my short-sleeve dress shirts are wrinkled/dirty. Long-sleeve shirts in general for me are for desperately-extreme last-resort measures.
For me, it’s khaki pants and t-shirt or polo in public, except for work, where it’s scrubs. At home it’s pajama shorts, but I call them my “around the house pants,” since I don’t actually sleep in them.
Barely noticed the red stain on Walky’s shirt under his hoodie. Did he murder Dorothy?
Walky just ran a marathon.
I suspect salsa.
Mc nuggets sauce. That stain is sweet AND sour. And by extension, so is he.
Perhaps a 6.9?
He was going to but he got distracted by the pajama pants ad, that’s actually a stain leftover from his last kill.
She was weeping, so he ended her pain.
Because he loves her.
Soon he will end everyone’s pain.
He will make a perfect paradise.
Just like the voices told him to.
Orrrrrr dorothy had her period while she was making a man out of him.
Orrrrrr Mike had eaten too much spicy food before he let Walky make a man out of him (on his t-shirt).
(Remember: Having anal after you’ve spent hours on the toilet that day isn’t fun at all! Next time you should know better.)
This discussion needed to end three comments ago.
If it’s from Dorothy and it ended up on his shirt, then somebody was doing something very very wrong.
“I used to love her but I had to kill her“
I used to love her…♪♫
But I had tequila…♫♪
She refused to buy pajama jeans. SHE MUST DIE!
Mike, keeping the world honest.
One eye brow at a time..
Not much needs to be said.
At least he’s got goals. Can’t fault him for vision.
With eyebrow action like that why waste words?
Okay that NSFW banner is really annoying me.
What NSFW banner?
The one for Chimneyspeak I’m assuming? Or whatever it’s called?
It only annoys me because my college decided OH HAY PORN BLOCKS ON DA NETWARKS YOUSE GUISE.
I love hearing about new weird shit. This “Chimneyspeak” is really perversely entertaining so far. Ya’ll oughta check it out… Y’know, while not at work.
I love the bizarre, gonzo art style. And the Russian girl. She’s adorable.
I’m used to webcomics putting up pictures of pretty girls as advertisements, but a naked girl with a few strategically placed words is ridiculous. It’s kind of offensive, and making me not want to click the link. I’ve seen it on a few webcomics now and it makes those webcomics look bad, besides turnin me off from reading the comic being advertised.
In all fairness to Chimneyspeak, it’s not false advertising. There is A LOT of nudity in it, so if you are offended the banner, the odds are fairly good you’ll feel the same about the comic. Not to mention the adverts on the site for the Penny Dreadfuls Jack sells.
I’m a fan of Chimneyspeak, but I don’t get how they get away with advertising on Project Wonderful. Project wonderful does not allow site with porn to advertise on them.
I can’t take it anymore. Your gravatar. It is slowly killing me. Every time I see it, a piece of my soul turns black and useless. Please stop making that duckface. Please. I’m begging you.
Nonsense. The world needs more NSFW banners.
Seeing the whites of Mike’s eyes always weirds me out.
It’s because you know you are close enough for him to strike.
Walky found a way to look more like a slob than he already does? I knew he was a genius after all.
Image macro from this in less than 8 hours, I’m betting.
Not necessarily, drunk mike took forever.
nvm. why does no one like drunk mike?
Man, DoA makes my PSL for Mike simultaneously more AND less creepy.
Hey, um.. is that Dargon Chesterfield in the background? Jason’s father?
Don’t think so. Dargon had blond hair.
I’m a little bummed nobody’s deciphered the visual pun yet.
Interesting picture on the wall. Joe & Jason’s father’s? No, Joe doesn’t have a beard (yet) in this reality. Hmm.
“Cool story, bro” is my immediate, default response to almost anything anyone ever says to me.
Insufficient adjectives exist to describe the awesome of that fourth panel.
It’s a Mike party and everyone’s invited!
Including your mom.
That expression on Mike in your Gravatar make it look like he’s being kicked in the nuts. Where’s it from again?
This Shortpacked! strip:
you fool! You are not a mike! you cannot be here!
She can have a nice cup of tea while shes here.
For a nickel, that is…
U mad, bro?
I am now considering Pajama Jeans. Damn you, Willis!
What next? Jeggings?!
Do it! For the sake of the sexiness, DOOO EEET! Unless, you know, you’re a guy, then don’t, or do, I don’t care.
Really, Walky, really? I mean, I know it’s possible for him to be even more of a slob, but I thought that would be in the theoretical sense.
He does know that they are made to look like girl’s jeans doesn’t he?
My guess? He doesn’t care.
I think sweat pant jeans can be any kinds of jeans you like. I mean, generally there isn’t too much of a difference in girls’ and guys’ jeans aside from the cut. And maybe some designs on girls’ butt pockets. I dunno.
The cut makes a pretty huge difference, let me tell you.
Also, dude waist and girl waist are in very different places on most jeans, especially lately. Walky in low-rise jeans would be like some kind of Flashpoint Zatanna craziness.
…BUY PYJAMA JEANS, WALKY. BUY THEM.
Wait, I got dude waist and lady waist mixed up.
Low-rise jeans would still probably trigger Zatanna. Jodphur Zatanna, in many cases.
More like would incite “The Plumber” effect if he wore girls cut, lowrise jeans but they would shape those glutes wonderfully >_<
Girls’ jeans don’t leave any room for your junk, though, so it’s gotta be uncomfortable, even with the extra stretch. Also the waist tends to be considerably narrower than the hips, even with the low-rise ones.
I can wear my husband’s jeans, because his waist size and my hip size are about the same, but I’ve got a lot of extra room around the waist because of that whole hip-to-waist ratio thing, and there’s a good handful of extra material up front that I just don’t need. Guys’ jeans in my waist size I just can’t get my hips/butt into. It’s ( ) as opposed to | | if you know what I mean.
I dunno. I’ve seen guys wear girls’ jeans, but the proportions of the area are different enough from gender to gender that they don’t fit well. And (with regular denim, at least) they CAN’T be comfortable. >.>
But if you are wearing jeans that aren’t really jeans – particularly these – would wearing a girl version affect as much as it would on regular jeans?
That is the question I’m unwilling to pay $35 to find the answer to.
They make men’s versions now … of course they still focus their product towards females.
Mike actually seems like an impossibly cool guy in this comic. I mean, normally you would think “Oh shit he’s gonna come up with some new way to be a douchebag to me every day” but this shows him not even really insulting Walky that much. Maybe he’s just cool with him?
Or maybe DoA Mike is just more mellow, I dunno. I would not mind having this Mike around. He’d be far better than my current roommate.
Maybe he’s just much more passive aggressive.
He’s just playing the long game…
Or maybe, because he doesn’t have superpowers, he can’t get away with half the shit he does in It’s Walky!/Shortpacked!
Every time I hear “Cool story, bro.” I think of my sis. It’s all she says nowadays.
DAMN YOU WILLIS.
The peoples eyebrow lives on!
If you smeeeeeeeeeeeeell what the Mike (dramatic pause)
The fact that I had to look this up to get this reference should make you feel old. I’m 23
Whippersnapper! Someone get my cane…
*whack* Respect your elders! In my day we had to lay 15 miles of phone cord to get 56k internet access…
I’m a 20 female and know exactly what he’s talking about. So would my 18 year old brother.
Your argument is invalid.
Being exposed to reruns on cable does not make the premise invalid.
I’d be tempted to say that if you had to look it up it should make you feel way out of the loop in terms of “wrestling” since Johnson’s been staging a comeback this year, and seven years ago isn’t long enough that, at a stated 23, you wouldn’t have likely not had some exposure to him during your formative years.
Meanwhile me making a reference back to my formative years watching Macho Man have his heel face turn leading into the formation of The Mega Powers is something I wouldn’t expect you to know directly, being something from ’88 & ’89 when I still partook (having stopped watching nearly 20 years ago).
I consider being out of the loop on matters wrestling related to be a good thing.
My 20 year old sister knows it. I know it but I’m 26. Knowing it is probably more than just age.
When the phrase can be dated to like this very year you don’t get to blame your age.
Looks like Mike’s gonna crush another dream with his truthiness.
Walky’s been reading a lot of Chris Sims? THAT IS A THING THAT EXISTS.
That look in Mike’s eyes stares directly into my soul.
This is Mike’s “WTF, dude?” face.
It’s Mike’s “I could crush you right now, but it’s not worth the effort. Please to be crushing yourself.” face.
I thought it was his “lolwat?” face.
Sorry, I meant his “Are you for real?” face.
I mean FAAAAAAAAAAACE.
That was his ‘Are you really retarded enough to believe that?’ look.
I need Mikes face in the fourth panel as a picture. Absolutely NEED.
Panel #4 Gravatar GO!
Okay, now getting sick of this. I’ve been Dorothy now for weeks!
the only time it’s going to randomly change is when willis makes new gravatars. if you want a new one, why not make your own?
But Joebo already has Eyebrow Mike.
But, b-but, making a Gravatar myself would be work!
Particularly the way Plasma Mongoose does it. That biped is insane.
Fortunately for me, I’m perfectly okay with being Amber. Sure she’s the wrong gender and looks nothing like me, but Gravatars aren’t supposed to look like you anyway, and she’s cool.
Not really. That Joyce Livejournal Mood-Faces thing I’ve been working on for like 3 months doesn’t really take long, it’s only about 5-30 minutes of work, depending on what you want and what else is in the frame. Just get GIMP or something and start erasing background.
So why has it taken me 3 months? Because I’m lazy. And there’s not enough different Joyce Faces lying around in DoA yet. But mostly because I’m lazy.
The hard part isn’t making the picture. The hard part is picking the picture. If you personalize your gravatar it then represents you; you selected it, and thus you presumably stand behind it or it means something to you. Plus it’s supposed to be clever, funny, and/or appealing. And of course, if you find multiple candidate images, you then have to select between them. (Or manually rotate them via some method, which is work.) For some people this may be easy, but I haven’t got that kind of creativity or imagination.
When the gravatar is assigned to you, though, all these problems go away – everyone knows it’s been assigned to you, so the image doesn’t even really have any representative meaning. It just is. I’d be a bit annoyed to get the shat-on Cyclops avatar over on the Shortpacked comment site, but other than that, it’s all good. And easy.
I have the best self-selected gravatar in the history of self-selected gravats.
Hooray for sweatpants!
I absolutely didn’t realise the US and UK spelt “pyjama”/”pajama” differently.
Knowledge is power?
“…And knowing is half the battle.”
I didn’t know about the different spelling for “pajama” until I saw the storyline about “pyjama pants” on Sam and Fuzzy a while back.
Webcomics: Better than school?
Canada uses the UK spelling, and I had NO idea the States spelled it differently until I deliberately used American spelling for a story a few years ago, and had an American friend beta it for me, and she pointed it out.
Apparently “counsellor” is spelled differently in the two countries too. Weird.
I wore my footie pajamas to work last night (as my Hallowe’en costume).
It was the most comfortable I’ve ever felt, clothing-wise, at work. I thought about yesterday’s comic a lot, and I am now seriously considering getting some of these pajama jeans.
And to think I never would have known about them if it weren’t for DOA. DAMN YOU WI– I mean, thanks, Willis.
Walky: The American Dave Lister of this continuity.
I assume, then, that Mike is Rimmer, Galasso is Holly (or maybe Joyce as female Holly), and Joe is the Cat?
“Hey, this has been a really good day. I’ve eaten five times, I’ve slept six times, and I’ve made a lot of things mine. Tomorrow, I’m gonna see if I can’t have sex with something.”
Isn’t it funny how the more uncomfortable something is the more fashionable it becomes?
Well … there is a point where that stops being true. Around the time that the uncomfort flows into bondage gear.
Leather corsets are freaking hot, what’re you talking about?
Those aren’t stains. That’s Found Art.
Stylish AND Nonconformist. Perfect for the Vogue Hipster.
Wow, Mike won the argument, and he did not have to be a dick about it. How often does THAT happen?
It’s called a Mercy Kill. Everybody gets one, but only when Mike deems them worthy.
I’m with Walky on this one I would totally buy a pair of these if they made them for men.
They do. Get buyin’.
Mike definitely seems less malevolent and more just plain snarky funny these days. I like it.
Mike is an extremly interesting person
I hope this isn’t going to introduce us to Respectable!Walky…
I LIKE SWEAT PANTS! THEY’RE COMFY AND EASY TO WEAR!
*Pokemon battle commences!*
lightsabermario used SEXY!
It’s not very effective…
I think that Mike has to be drunk, he’s not wanting to stab Walky or say something mean about the sweats that look like jeans. And he only raise’ an eyebrow to when Walky claims he doesn’t want to look like a slob. AND he says “Cool story, bro”……
WHAT HAPPENED TO MIKE?!
Yeah I’d expect Mike to have a long list of suicidal roommates. I guess he has to tone things down in this verse.
SP! Mike has the benefit of Superstrength and being a literal war hero who died saving a teammates life…this Mike has to be more subtle with his assholery.
Whoa, Mike is REALLY looking down on Walky there!
I have to say that Mike is showing incredible restraint, seeing as only women ever appear in the pajama jean advertisements. Or he doesn’t watch TV enough to know. I’m sure SOMEONE will point it out to Walky before he orders a pair.
The eyepatch head on the poster is staring at me.
Ironically, ALL the advertisements I can see on this page are about jeans. “Liu Jo Jeans Fashion Store” o_O
You know, I don’t think I’ve ever seen any version of mike with eyes drawn like that. This is awesome.
wait, mike said two lines and neither of them were soul crushing…
the apocalypse is upon us
Mike’s face in panel four.
I can’t even look directly at him.
It’s like he’s silently judging every single thing I’ve ever done and every thought I’ve ever had.
Return of Mike’s Johnny Bravo outfit!
