Yeah I couldn’t say no to that face either.
Sometimes I wish I could make that face.
I know I can.
It’s easy. All you need is muscle control.
Yep. Just like a triple axel – anyone can do it.
I second that emotion.
The emotion is carried.
Bring in the dancing lobsters!
You can’t beat the Walky charm. Or politeness.
“I GIVE IT BACK TO YOUUUUU”
Oh man a few Monkey Master days would be choice. =D
Walky is so freaking adorable. <3
No girl can resist the siren song of cartoons!
Not the ones I know. Damn Korean dramas.
I WILL HAVE NO DISPARAGING REMARKS ABOUT KOREAN DRAMAS!
I WILL FIGHT YOU!
I was watching a Korean drama. The terrible subtitles have created memes amongst me and my friends. For example, hitting something is ‘appreciating’ it, and can only be done by ‘a god person.’
As much as I really wanted to fight, I have to give the dramas some credit. At least they are somewhat OK compared to Indonesian and local drama.
You take that back! My best friend is a Korean drama!
A Korean drama killed my brother!
That last one seems legit. I totally believe a Korean drama could involve killing your brother.
Then it took an arrow to the knee.
Followed by a knee to the groin.
For a nickel!
with your mom? I never get how these meme things work.
Wish I could start a conversation with “Blah blah blah”.
don’t you mean “a successfully charming conversation”?
He had to quickly dispense with meaningless conversation, she was interrupting the good part.
A comic titled “Lent” in the storyline “Choosing My Religion”. Clever, Willis…
Especially since it’s the middle of Lent.
And you know what that means… Fillet o Fish special!
And no I’m not a schill for McD’s, just a Jew who loves cheap fish.
Mike had your moms cheap fish for a nickle.
See, you’d have my kudos for the successful “for a nickel” iteration if it weren’t for the contemptible “nickle” misspelling.
Ya know who Walky kind of Reminds me of Sackboy from LBP.
You CAN say no to that face.
…but you won’t feel good about yourself afterwards.
The twist is that next comic is just Dorothy walking away.
No the twist is the next comic is Dorothy climbing on top of him and pulling off her shirt while Walky asks what the heck is happening.
See, I thought from the first panel that Dorothy was actually playing with the toy.
Me too! I thought we has skipped to Walky and Dorothy playing with them.
There will be so much useless flailing if this doesn’t happen.
There’d probably less useless flailing if I could draw, so I could draw fanart.
Alas, useless flailing must commence?
We shall see. there are three possibilities:
1) Dorothy and Walky play with the toys in the comic.
b) Someone draws fanart of Dorothy and Walky playing with the toys.
III) I suddenly get a burst of magic art powers and draw it myself.
And now she’s thinking, “Maybe I’ll just settle for Speaker of the House…”
awwwwwww~! So cute.
And then the sex.
Monkey Master Fanfics first, then sex. Dorothy and Walky know their priorities.
Couldnt they combine the two with roleplay? (albeit probably awkward roleplay) as a side note I wonder if there would be female characters in the cartoon to make it slightly less awkward?
Sorry I must correct myself. *adult* female characters. There we go.
Y’know, the more I think about it, the more I think that these two are EXACTLY what they need for each other.
d’awww. C’mon, say it with me… D’awwww
D’wwwwa? I’m sorry this is pretty hard to figure out.
What’s the difference between “lent” and “loaned”? One is a 49 day period in the christian calendar, the other is the proper past tense of “to loan”. A sad statement on the educational system…
“Loaned” is the past tense of “loan.” “Lent” is the past tense of “lend.”
“Lent” is not the past tense of “loan.”
Until I read this comic, I thought Lent was “Lint”. The more you know…
Lint is what you find in ‘innie’ bellybuttons.
Lol thanks. I meant I thought the period of Lent was spelled Lint.
And then they play with figurines together, on the bed, naked….
Okay I will take my head out from the gutter now.
AHEM! Action Figures.
Seriously, Walky is the best thing to happen to Dorothy since she got to college.
Sadly, she doesn’t realize that going down this path means she’s going to end up the hot wife of the owner of a hobby game shop who hangs out while painting models and playing WoW when she’s ‘suppose’ to be watching the counter… *laugh*
Appropriate avatar alert
You say all that like its a bad thing.
Haha! “Lent.” I see what you did there, Willis!
Oh sure Walky! I’ll watch the show with you and make you think I’m interested! And then, I’ll just remind you that I’m not looking for anything serious!
Do men really think agreeing to watch a cartoon together indicates romantic interest?
I mean yes.
Men often think that glancing slightly in our direction indicates romantic interest
Honestly, though, unless he was just trying to piss Joyce off, this is the first time he’s ever had that kind of interest in someone. I think he’d be just as uncomfortable with getting into a relationship at this point as she would be. It’d be too serious for him, too, but for an entirely different set of reasons.
Also there’s the entire lack of 8I reaction to her presence to consider. I highly doubt he has any romantic thoughts about this event, and is aware of two things:
1) Someone he’s on good terms with, who likes the show he’s into, just knocked on the door,
2) It just got to the good bit.
I’d even go so far as to predict a later event (maybe a few strips away) wherein he comes to the realization that
And the 8I commences thusly.
Unless you previously establish a firm foundation of platonic friendship, absolutely yes. This is what’s called “dating”.
I think a lot men with nerdy and/or juvenile hobbies, especially those who are accustomed to ostracism on those grounds, will tend to read too much into an acceptance of that hobby. x5 for those with little romantic experience.
Not that I think it’ll happen with Walky. I’m just armchair psychoanalyzing a stereotype because, well, what else am I going to do on the internet?
Wugh. Is there any way to alieviate that, so as not to lead a dude on, without harping on “hey I still don’t want to date you” so often that it’s just cruelly rubbing rejection in their faces? I have a particular sweet nerdy male friend in mind.
You might try inviting your boyfriend to come along and make out with him the whole time. That would work.
I first read that as ‘inviting your boyfriend to come along and [have your boyfriend] make out with [nerdy male friend] the whole time.’
Interacting with them only in groups of at least three or four would likely help; it’s the one-on-one time together that really smells of, well, using the activity as an excuse to be alone with them.
Admittedly this could be tough if they’re the only other person you know who can tolerate your hobby.
This knife cuts both ways, too – of course I haven’t your perspective on this specific situation, but often girls will read interest where there is none. A lot of females I know have gotten the idea that men can’t have platonic friendships with them because they’re too pretty – which, first of all, I’m a counterexample, and second, that just creates awkwardness where there doesn’t have to be any.
To be frank, if you are acting in good faith, and he leads HIMSELF on, you’re off the hook until he comes out and says it. I have tremendous respect for the women who, when they found out I liked them, found me as soon as possible and turned me down directly. I was able to move on fairly quickly, instead of dragging things out, and looking back, I don’t think it’s a coincidence that those women (I can count them on one hand) are the most amazing women I know in many other areas of their lives.
To be fair, based on my limited knowledge of girls, waving at a smiling girl can mean anything from ‘Hi there’ to ‘Yes, I would like to marry you’…
Actually men come in two major kinds.
1) The ones that think you are interested at the drop of a hat.
2) The kind that wouldn’t realize you were interested unless you beat them with the aforementioned hat.
He’s wearing her down.
No one can resist the pure, unadulterated lust for life that is Walky. Plus I think she saw a new side of him at the beach.
I feel super Catholic right now… I saw the title Lent and was confused about why it was titled that because it had nothing to do with Lent. I’m an idiot.
It’s cool, I’m Jewish and I saw it that way too.
I wonder if we’ll ever know how Dorothy and Danny got together in the first place?
I got theories. None of them make any sense though.
Based on this comic, she has no willpower against an enthusiastic dork. So maybe that.
My guess? Small town school, limited romantic options. Danny may have seemed sweet, and Dorothy wanted to date someone who wouldn’t just be trying to get into her pants.
This has been going on so long now that I’ve forgotten what the book is and don’t know how far to go back in the archives to rediscover it. Can it get a tag of its own?
It’s a classic Dexter and Monkey Master comic, but I can’t remember when exactly Walky lent it to her. I suspect it was the night she came over after Joyce’s drugging, but someone needs to confirm.
I’m pretty sure it was before that. Maybe sometime during Day 3 or 4?
Pretty sure it was Thursday. Billie left Dotty and Walky alone in Walky’s room while Billie snuck into Ruth’s room.
Actually, just click the “Dexter” tag. It’s the strip after the third strip on the list.
The way to Dorothy’s heart: “blah blah blah.”
I wonder if Danny did that.
While it’s nice to see Walky getting better to talking to Dorothy, I’m starting to miss his “Deer caught in headlights” expression.
He did some fun stuff while looking like that.
And possibly babble like an idiot.
shes about to master his monkey…..uh…
The return of the double entendre. Gentlemen, start your engines.
D’aww… Walky can talk and has managed to get Dorthy to smile. Happy times!
A Walky talky?
Panels five and six: best panels in the history of this comic.
Yes. Full of “D’AWWWW!”
YAY FOR DOROTHY/WALKY!!!!!!!!!!!! :3 :3 :3
Who’s with me? ^_^
I declare this pairing to be known as ‘DORKY’!!
Also, I whole-heartedly approve!
You made me sputter on my grape soda.
I like you.
C’mon Dorothy, go into the room with him and his cartoons and greasy cartons. Give up your dreams of being president and replace them with chicken nugget mega deals. Give in to the dark side of geekdom…
Yes, give into your feelings. They make you strong.
I’m kind of wondering at this point what other fictional franchises exist in this world. We know Robo-Vac is still around.
I’ll bet there’s a cartoon of Monkey Master, except all the characters are in college.
And within that, there’s a book about these guys who work at a toy store.
After that, it’s turtles all the way down.
With an annoyed Master Splinter sitting at the bottom.
Dorothy fails at being the best at college (classes). She immediately is rewarded with a life. GOOD JOB
At least she’s not a social climber like Billie. She knows the value of friendship.
This is why I’m not paying for my kid to go to college.
You are kidding, right?
aww how sweet
also, about the new poll; are you asking for the highest level of math that we’ve taken as a class? or can w include things we’ve looked into on our own?
also, if you’ve taken physics, you’ve done at least pre-calculus level math.
It’s been a few decades since I last done secondary school maths in Yr 10. While I vaguely recall doing a bit of trig, I’m not sure that is enough to count as pre-calc or not.
Seems to have been a few decades since you ‘last done’ English too
I type the way I talk and if that doesn’t meet uni-level grammar standards, then so be it.
Fuck da grammar po-po.
All turtles, all the way XDXDXDXD
Wtf? I don’t know how this comment ended up down here <_<
He is remarkably composed when facing her.
Best reaction to a woman giving a half-hearted excuse ever!
and all my fears of the dumbing of age universe are confirmed by this head alien is and is plotting this is the universe that causes an alternate reality head alien to systematically kill walky and Joyce in every other parallel universe.
