If by adorable you mean troubling and ridiculous, then yeah. It’s totally adorable.
So, tell me how long you have harboured this resentment toward younger siblings…
Since mine were born.
Oh? Why’d you wait that long?
I came here to say this. Also, every time I say, write, read, or hear “that’s adorable” my brain superimposes the voice of Harry Potter from Harry Potter Puppet Pals.
I’m not alone anymore! Frieeeeeend…
For me, I hear Frodo from One Ring to Rule them All 2, although it’s “he’s adorable.”
I hate using someone else’s pillow too
which is why you don’t hold yours up to someone else’s and say, “I can’t tell which one is mine!” ¬_¬
What about someone’s dirty pillows?
That’s like having someone’s dirty underwear. Pervert.
For some people, dirty underwear is an intoxicating fetish, but for me, it’s just more laundry needed to be done.
EXACTLY. I know what you mean.
You know, if you’d just stop taking other people’s underwear away from them, you wouldn’t have so much cleaning to do.
Why would I want to steal anyone’s silky darlings? 😛
Maybe if you were Happosai.

Yeah, this is definitely the part where I’d just give Sarah both the pillows.
Someone wants a pillow to the FAAAAAAAACE
Those pants in the back are on a hangar … Nerd alert!
Is it abnormal to have pants on a hangar?
No matter how you answer, I’ll say it fits Sarah’s personality.
I hang up everything that can possibly be hung up. I avoid drawers whenever possible.
I usually leave my pants and other cloths in dryer helps in the winter just flip the dryer on for 30 seconds and BAM toasty pants!
I’m jealous that you don’t have to pay 4 quarters to do that.
I don’t have cable or a TV a functioning oven, weirdly dispersed heating cooling in some rooms and I have live near an airport and highway but dammit its worth it to have washer and dryer.
Hahaaha most of my clothes stay on the floor.
And tonight I will just quote contextless lines from 70s comedians.
Umm, okay… I’ll bite. Just how the heck are “normal” people supposed to store pants without them getting wrinkled?
Your strange words confuse me!
You could try the poor person’s method of hanging them in the bathroom while you’re showering. Steams ’em right out.
Does she how sibling relationships work?
The better question is, what were her brothers’ relationships with her like?
Starting to sound like she was used to taking advantage of being the youngest right down to the moment the youngest of her brothers was able to move out and away from her Diaper Warrior antics she was never expected to grow out of. How close was that?
Oh man, I am the EXACT same as Joyce in situations like these. Doesn’t matter if two things are the exact same, I need to have the one that belongs to me. And I don’t even have any siblings. >.<
Shouldn’t Joyce’s last text bubble be Orange Colored instead of Black.
Two Internets for you!
I love how Geoff Johns has attempted to rewrite the culture so that people are now “orange with envy,” since green was taken.
I thought it was always orange…s’how I was raised
I dunno. Why should this mystical intergalactic color emotion spectrum adhere to Earth sayings? It’d be weirder to me if green was envy.
…Unless he actually had people who didn’t know/care about the Orange Lanterns saying “orange with envy” to justify it, which would be stupid, yeah.
I’m sure Larfleeze’s mother still calls him Pat.
It would be orange, but then Willis would owe DC money for using a color like they use it.
I read it as being the black of an ominous impending death tone of voice.
Avarice not rage
Oh god no. Someone has angered the Joyce. Run for your lives!!!
One of these things is not like the others, One of these things just doesn’t belong, Can you tell which thing is not like the others. By the time I finish my song?
A black dialogue bubble?
(WARNING: Trope alert!)
Curse you, Plasma Mongoose!
I alerted you, so it is your own fault for clicking, besides you need to develop a resistance to TVTropes or you will lose whole days you had previously planned for.
I have a better solution: Don’t plan anything.
That can work too. 😀
But . . . if you plan to not plan, you have both planned to not plan AND planned to succeed in planning to not plan.
And so on up the infinite recursion loop.
The one in the middle!
So when does she get her power ring?
And here I thought Amazi-girl was the black lantern corps member. Boy I was really wrong on that one hahaha…
Sarah should be running.
All hail our new dark queen!
I for one welcome our new Joyce overlords.
Seconded I believe the first thing we should do is erect giant statues of horses to appease her!
and thus, the Anti-Joyce takes over Joyce’s body and her reign of Terror begins…
Yes, and sexings.
How can I ever forget the sexing?
And then she will Joyce Joe?
If by Joycing you mean smacking him in the head then YES!
I don’t blame you for being scared of her. That would make me crap my pants too.
If only Sarah had a crucifix and a bucket of holy water on hand.
And an axe that flies in an arc and a throwing knife and a stopwatch that can stop or slowdown time.
Don’t forget the flaming whip!
Sarah’s shirt seems to have built in boobs
There’s no need to descend to talking about the characters’ breasts. Get back on topic. We were talking about Joyce’s lovely pair of pillows.
That white shirt with red stripes does seem to be shapewear of some sort doesn’t it?
The rest of the basket seems to contain socks. For all we know, that’s the top end of some tights.
That’s a pretty ridiculously small shirt. I don’t think that’s a shirt unless Sarah or Joyce have a baby and it hasn’t been mentioned.
But that baby’s shirt would have built-in boobs, yes.
You can’t just go switching pillows willy-nilly. Pillows mate for life.
THOSE AREN’T PILLOWS!!!!!
It’s a space station!
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles for the win!
If Joyce were in WORD GIRL’s Rogue’s Gallery she’d be Birthday Girl.
I’m almost ashamed I get that reference.
I’m not afraid to say it. I giggled.
She’s not just the youngest of a lot of siblings… she’s the youngest of brothers. The only girl.
Damn right, she’s possessive of her stuff. But yeah, that’s rather precious.
The pillow is her preciousssss?
The sad thing is that I find this only makes Joyce more adorable. Lord help me if I ever get my wish of having a daughter because I’ll be wrapped around her little finger.
All of this pillow talk between two lovely ladies.. what a way to start a day.
Any discussion about pillows invariably reminds me of…. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093748/quotes?qt=qt0267379
Yeah, me too.
I remember being about ten and our family had just watched it on television, and I asked if the Scene You’re Talking About was what the Old Testament warned about vis-a-vis “a man must not lie with a man as he would a woman.”
My parents blubbered out a response of some sort. I had no idea what was going on.
I dreamt almost that exact scenario once. I put my PTA movie poster away after that
“YOU’RE GOING THE WRONG WAY!”
“YOU’RE GOING THE WRONG WAY!”
“Eh, ignore them. How would they know where we’re going??”
Pillows pillows pillows pillows rockin everywhere
I could see taking a pillow to The Player’s Club, but pillows don’t tan!
As a youngest sibling, this is pretty accurate
Years of people touching and taking(and breaking) your stuff can make you very possesive
As an oldest sibling, maybe if you didn’t mess with our stuff all the time we would have just left you alone. Go cry to mommy, brat.
Time for embroidering initials then… XD
You know, as an only child, I never go especially possessive of my stuff.
You’ve been missing out.
wow, I love the artwork here. The colours are really pretty.
I like how Sarah only owns green and purple clothing.
Just like the Joker…hmmmmmmm.
90% of my clothes are blue and/or black, so I’m not seeing the issue here.
I’ve thought about spicing things up with more green shirts, but it’s a slow process.
She’s just like me!
There’s some black in there too, although those may be leaches.
No two pillows are ever identical. My wife taught me this, and I have no choice but to believe it’s true. Because her pillow is HEEERRRRSSS…..
I thought Joyce had younger brothers too. Or is that just in the other universe? Have we been told about her other siblings in any detail here yet? Too lazy to go back and check through the archive.
Joyce has always been the youngest sibling.
This pillow’s mine, ’twas handed down to me…
This pillow has been passed down in the Armstrong family for generations!! -sparkle-
This is my pillow. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My pillow is my best friend. It is my rest. I must master it as I must master my dreams.
My pillow, without me, is useless. Without my pillow, I am restless…
That is a good movie, that said I hate it for the sadness it makes me feel. Much like that movie that cam ou recently called…Legacy? I think
I’m now seeing where he rage comes from. It all makes sense now.
They’ve been at college for a week, and they’re already doing laundry? Most college students will wait until they’re down to their last pair of undies.
Joyce is not most college students, and she guilted Sarah into it. 🙂
That kind of cheating is frowned upon in strip poker.
For a sweet little Christian girl, Joyce seems to have a habit of slipping into nightmare modes acts and voices. I half expect her to be the host body for one of the Elder Gods.
If you look closely at the first panel, you’ll notice that Joyce is not wearing any pants. Just some blue, full-bottoms. Willis, you dog you!
Did anyone else see a new comic where Dorothy goes back and kisses Walky for like a second? And then it just disappeared.
Only someone with severe OCD would care. Just take one. Sheesh!
My little brother once said he didn’t want t ouse my pillow because “It has Alex’s dreams on it.”
Sarah doesn’t understand: Having siblings just makes you more possesive
no san diego comic-con, the sorries
Who should be doodled inside Book 6?
