This is strip 500! Grab a party hat.
You get a law firm! You get a law firm! Everyone gets a law firm!
But… but I don’t want a law firm.
They’re nearly impossible to housetrain.
Would you prefer a law soft? They are significantly more malleable.
Got one. It’s called a state legislature.
I always thought referendums were cuter.
So cute when they think they are accomplishing something.
Can I have a rule-of-man firm?
Darn, I wanted a humpback whale.
PHWEE 500! =D
He’s halfway to having a long-runner.
And in only two years, without missing an update. Bravo Mr. Willis.
I take back the ‘DAMN YOU WILLIS’s, okay?
Well played Dana. Well played
Happy big round number!
To celebrate, all moms are now TWO for a nickel!
At that price, you can’t afford not to!
Mike coudn’t EVER afford not to!
It’s so true. They don’t tell you, but two of the most important things you should be doing in school are making friends/networking and getting some sort of real experience, whether from a job or as an assistant to a professor.
Grades don’t mean jack compared to the other two, as long as you aren’t embarrassing yourself.
…Well, as long as you’re learning enough of the material, that is. Do study, just don’t neglect everything else.
Unless you want to get into certain places. For instance, the CIA demands a 3.0 or higher from applicants, and the branches of the military have their own requirements for officer applicants. And that’s not for grad school, either. So take it from someone who didn’t take grades quite seriously enough, they really do matter.
Yep. Dana’s current circumstances are just a speed-bump on her path to success. Everything Sarah’s ever done is just leading up to being overqualified to sling fries. People wonder why she’s so bitter and sour-tempered.
Marks only count until your first job, then it is just your experience.
And I see someone mentioned the military. Funny story, I decided to join the army reserve; I was 36, and had a B. Sc. in engineering. So you would think that when providing my educational background, they would want a copy of my university marks right? Wrong, they made me provide my high school transcripts.
Having access to lots of lawyers didn’t help her though.
Having access to lawyers and having access to money for those lawyers are two very different snakes.
It does make me wonder if Sarah got sued by Dana’s father. Depends on how far out Willis wants to make this comic since while reporting a crime is likely not something you can sue over, he could go the frivolous lawsuit route for some character back story.
I like to entertain the thought that actual lawyers are too savvy to personally instigate a frivolous lawsuit against someone who has no money.
Of course, I also like to imagine that would be a good way to lose your license to practice, and if that part’s fantasy then all bets are off.
Rich parents fund drug addicts.
And bratty a-holes.
I was going to say “suddenly, so very very much is explained about Dana and Raidah and their friends”, but you two beat me to it. Argh! *fist-shake*
We actually don’t know much about Dana’s attitude. I still like to believe that while she wasn’t a asshole her drug habit got worse and Sarah tattled as much for Dana’s sake as for her own.
Not all of them (meaning both, not all rich parents, and not all drug addicts)
You should’ve just stopped doing comics for three weeks. Then you’d be two-for-one on milestones.
Odd how life works isn’t it? When you’re a kid, it’s always study, study, study. Then, you reach university.
It was in reverse for me. Didn’t do anything leading up to college, bam, now I work hard for those grades.
Aizat’s point had nothing to do with grades, rather with the lack of adult supervision.
Wow strips are like anniversaries. Let’s see, 40 is ruby, 60 is diamond. What do you get someone for 500?
A star, maybe?
duh, a dime
500 = D
Yes and with a new colour each day.
Pretty sure you get a Nickel. You know, for doing stuff with a certain female, who may or may not have birthed a person such as yourself.
Sarah shows off her amazing ability to talk with a pen in her mouth.
A classmate from one of my classes said that in her ESL class, the teacher made the students talk with a pen in their mouth because it helps to shape their tongue.
Also, taking Forensic Linguistics has taught me that talking with a pen in your mouth is one of the easiest way to disguise your voice.
Really? Lengthwise or how? I’m trying this and my voice doesn’t sound different, just difficult to talk when it’s pressing hard on my tongue. I would think the goal would be disguising your voice while still being intelligible.
I really thought/hoped that was a pipe at first glance, but no such luck.
For a fraction of a second I thought it was a joint and was like, “whoa!” But then I zoomed in (small smartphone screen is small.)
Yep, smartphone does change how you read comics, fo sho.
… Huh. She should be more popular then.
At this point Willis should get Styrofoam™ or Celotex® for a 500 anniversary.
I thought that was for the 9895th anniversary. Oh well. *gets out styrofoam suit*
Silly! Every fairy knows that the 9895th anniversary is the false anger anniversary!
What about Moms?
Get screwed by Mike for a nickel.
Yeah Sarah… you suck on that pen. You suck on that pen real good. Yeah… just like that…
I need a shower.
A cold one, no doubt.
You don’t have an oral fixation, do you Bekah?
Why, whatever gave you that idea?
party party party! But not a drug party!
Oh boy, I had a conversation from the first few panels with my roommate freshman year. It might have continued on to match the rest of the strip if I hadn’t snapped at her and left the room. (Maybe she had a point?)
Hahah oh self-awareness…
…Dana’s last name is gonna turn out to be O’Ryan, I just know it.
Nah…. her last name is gonna be Crane and the other 2 friends with lawyer dad’s will be Poole and Schmidt.
Party hats you say? My mind immediately goes to TF2.
My mind went to another kind of party hat.
Congratulations for the 500th! And Dana shows why she was quite missed… she sure knows how to sell herself…
Never assume a dad does not have lawyers at his disposal!
Don’t do it, Sarah, it’s a trap!
Insert goldfish headed admiral
She certainly knows how to sell her brand of party.
TWIST! Her dad’s a marijuana advocate lawyer!
Happy 500th strip Willis!
500 strippers, you say? Good on ya, Willis.
That sounds incredibly expensive. And in most houses, crowded.
No, this is Strip 500. It’s like the Indianapolis 500. But naked.
I’m from Indiana, so I have some insight here… if you’d ever seen the kind of crowd the Indy 500 draws, you would definitely hesitate to have them get naked.
Joyce, someone has tampered with this memory. At all costs you must find out from Sarah what she actually said to her roommate
Off to Hagrid’s hut with you!
just starting reading…I picked the right time!
So far she SEEMS allright. I wonder where it goes wrong.
That awkward moment when your pothead roommate is right.
Screw your networking, damn right school is about studying. Surly loners with no people skills need more respect. (Not to long ago I stumbled across an author trying to get this message out. Look up Susan Cain for more.)
Although it doesn’t take an introvert to not want to hang out with potheads.
So whats wrong with hanging out with potheads?
I can see how you would feel the need to ask that what with how well they get along today.
Congrats on the big 500. You are one of the giants of webcomics. I am now wearing my party hat, it’s on my head, above my FAAAAAAAACE.
That was weak. Sorry, couldn’t come up with anything else.
My penis came up with a nickel for your mother
And there we go. I guess I should stick to being the straight man.
So Sarah’s guilty of being so hardcore into networking that she doesn’t have a conscience or scruples? Maybe she would make a great lawyer…or Senator.
Then what are they doing at IU?????????
