Either she’s a lightweight or Billie has some extreme tolerance.
Well Billie’s was pretty much an alcoholic so I think it’s the latter
Or she drank more than her share.
Or Ruth started drinking before she got there.
As Billie would put it, “Pre drunk”.
That’s true. She did have bubbles over her head when she showed up if I remember right. She probably pregamed.
I’m gonna say neither. It’s more than likely that Billie had much less to drink. Ruth would likely have some tolerance herself since she seems to be no stranger to alcohol
Billie was probably also drinking less out of caution. It’s Ruth, after all.
But can you say that she’s no stranger to love? LOL
Now back to the shipping.
Did it ever really stop? We’re all-ship-all-the-time around here.
We’re Ship faced
Ship just hit the fan
You’re Shippin’ me
This is some bull Ship.
Ship Ship Hooray!
I’m surprised it stopped!
I made my first meme! I’m so proud.
Until enough other people use it, it doesn’t count as a meme, if you push it enough, it might become a forced meme, but most forced memes fail.
Needs more Lucy
You two! You have this BACKWARDS! BACKWARDS I say!
And so Billie actually has the higher alcohol tolerance?
…Actually, that should not surprise me.
The secret to high alcohol tolerance is simple, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!
And now All I can see is a Montage of Billie drinking to “Eye of the Tiger”.
I thought that the theme song of Rocky might work better in that montage.
Any 80s movie would!
eye of the tiger is a rocky training montage, from 3
Eye of the Tiger is the Rocky III theme song. Or is it Rocky IV?
The theme from the first Rocky movie, “Gonna Fly Now” is not a good fit, because alcohol and piloting is a bad mixture.
My conclusion is that Ruth went through a shit-ton of beer, and Billie knew better than to try to take more than one or two from her RA of Death.
When this started she appeared to only have a single six pack with her, so it probably doesn’t qualify as a shit ton, unless it was really strong beer.
Or… the sheer amount of alcohol needed to move Billie from pre-drunk to drunk enough to understand the super-drunk is more than what Ruth can carry.
If Ruth had her daily blood ration that day, she’d’ve fared better.
… You know, because the blood-alcohol… No? Okay.
All we’ve seen with Ruth is her drinking herself to sleep on what was presumably beer. If Ruth didn’t know anything about Billie’s alcohol tolerance than she took a big risk getting drunk with her.
Ruth must have left Canada before she became drinking age, otherwise their respective tolerance levels would be reversed.
I swear to drunk officer I’m not god.
Thank goodness. I would feel guilty about ticketing God.
Of course you’re not, you don’t look like like a puppet to me. And I don’t see a banjo ANYWHERE.
…ye gads, a Sinfest reference in the wilds?
Nice order of the stick referince (hope I had the right spelling)
I also swear to Drunk Officer.
You should look a gift beer in the mouth…Otherwise you might get roofied.
And all God’s people say,
One should be leery of Sprite, too.
No, Sprite’s fine. It’s Sierra Mist and the people who drink it you can’t trust.
If give Billie enough hard liquer, she might be open to some hard licking if you know what I mean.
Twenty-four scoops of ice cream and a crate of lollipops is the best way to deal with a hangover, in my experience.
How, by going into a diabetic coma?
You can’t have a hangover when you sleep forever.
That’s known as “Final Fantasy villain logic.”
hahahah love ruth
me love ruth too.
me love ruth long time
ruth is truly a wordsmith when she’s drunk
This smith is pretty hammered.
I’m putting 2 to 1 odds on Ruth making out with Billie.
Joe already has a pool on that.
And a Camera set up to record it
And not just any pool, an inflatable kiddie pool.
Filled with pudding.
NO! Not my pudding! * sniff * At least it died a warrior’s death.
But if that happens, don’t we ALL win, really?
In a greater sense, we’re all losers.
Just replying to say that your avatar and your comment compliment each other perfectly. I find it most amusing. That is all.
Oh, and there’s no way they’ll get together. Not until they run into each other at a party, and their eyes meet from across the room…
Well, I can’t think of any funny Canadian songs that I could quote to go with this. Guess I have to hand in my maple leaf to the Grand High Moose Riding A Beaver.
The legend lives on from the Hoosiers on down
Of the big ship they call Ruth and Billie…
Leaping from tree to tree as they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia! The Fir! The Larch! The Redwood! The mighty Scots Pine! The plucky little Aspen! The smell of fresh-cut timber! The crash of mighty trees!
With my best gal by my side, we’d sing, sing, SING…
Ruth wants a friend. Her choices are a bit limited.
I’m expecting a kiss, drunken or not, by the end of the year.
Our year, or their year?
If it’s theirs, you might be waiting a while…
Now make out.
Where’s Lucy where you need her?
Billy is the Master of the Drinking skill. Once you’ve leveled up your Drinking skill and got your Rookie and Adept training, you seek her out and she’ll send you on a quest to recover some extra-dimensional booze which she’ll take in exchange for advancing you to Master level in the skill.
Isn’t it amazing how you can understand someone speaking complete gibberish if you’re both drunk.
I like that. It’s awesome.
I put a rank into Linguistics to add “Drunkard” to my language list.
Maby we should tell roxie
Okay, so Billie isn’t totally heartless…
She normally doesn’t mean to be… she just… is.
I got the top banner with the complete cast, and I realized something.
If Ruth and Mike got together…..
they would have the angriest babies.
No one would be safe. The child would bring in the Snarkopolypse. The earth would drown in a sea of sick burns and sarcasm.
I did not ship Billie X Ruth until just now. And now it’s my absolute favorite DoA pairing.
So where’s all the Ruth/Billie fanfic/art? (I made one! https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-WubbILSD0Xo/UGB0PCo7oHI/AAAAAAAAA1w/qZgyDjSuXa0/s477/WALKY-SexualTension-color-small.png)
They both live in the dorm. No driving involved.
Get more Beer!
“Don’t look like a gift beer in the mouth I’ll shove your face.”
I think she means ‘shove your FAAAAAACE’.
For my part, I’m totally down with Ruth shoving her mouth (presumably tasting of gift beer) into Billie’s face. Just saying.
Not gonna lie, I would like to see this too.
So apparently there’s a part of the world where you can’t get lesbian porn on the Internet?
Maybe? There’s apparently a part of the world where people don’t know the difference between shipping and pornography (granted, the two are often used by fans in tandem, but still) so anything is possible.
Go home hands, you’re drunk!
totally shipping these two.
Billie has her high school cheer stuff on her college dorm room bulletin board? That’s kind of sad.
Hmmm, I wonder if we are about to learn who “sir” is.
wow i just read through 2 years of comics in an evening
Poor Ruth ;___;
