Oh, right, this shirt can exist. I’d actually forgotten. I AM GREAT AT BEING A WEB ENTREPRENEUR
DAMN YOU WILLIS! WHERE IS MY RESOLUTION?!?
The joke’s on us. Yesterday’s comic WAS the resolution…
to be a part of the two-tone revolution.
a Dance Dance revolution.
The people cry, ‘where’s our resolution’
As the comic descends in devolution
Willis brings forth more convolution
Her heart denied, Ruth turns to prostitution
Every lover merely a substitution
for Billie, her heart cries at their dissolution
The people yell, “its time for revolution”
Against Willis, they cry for retribution
Inspiring others, to join their persecution
He rewrites it, facing execution
Ruth finds Billie, seeking absolution
As they make up, Willis is locked in an institution
Where he’s forced to, write this solution.
To Skull025, this is my contribution
Thanks for reading this shitty elocution
Very well done. I’m hearing Willis saying ‘Nevermore’ and I’m pretty sure there’s a parody of Poe’s “The Raven” in there somewhere…
This is the best. Just an enjoyable punch to the FFAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCEEEEEEEEEEE.
*Sarcastic slow clap* That. . . Was beautiful!
What, you expected that entire situation to solve itself before anything else went on? What comic have you been reading?
No. . . I just had an innocent, small glimmer of hope that it would. . .
Exactly. Although I’m surprised he threw Joe in here. I thought we’d see a reveal of Jason rejecting Sal’s much more enthusiastic advances from… two weeks ago? Has it really been that long? To be honest, I half expected to see that ship founder between Ruth’s kiss and Billie’s rejection.
Don’t get me wrong. Of the many ships launched in the Walkyverse, Jason/Sal was the one I most wanted to see work. In the DoAverse… I’m not feeling it at this point. It’s building, but like Ruth/Billie, it’s way too early and one partner seems no where near ready to accept that shift in their relationship. Of course, nothing can sink a ship faster than trying to launch it before it’s… um… see-worthy? Sorry. Metaphor failure.
Still, this is a David Willis strip. If more than 25% of the relationships are progressing in a positive, conflict-free direction, he’s not doing his job.
If you try to unfurl the sails before the mast has been raised, you’re not going to get very far.
MIght snap it off, there, Sal. Looks a bit delicate.
My prediction is that the next we see of Jason and Sal is a Jason being very awkward the next day
Looks like it’s 1,000px × 333px.
Two years later, when the movie comes out.
It will be tomorrow in-universe time. So sometime next month maybe.
Have you tried looking in Control Panel? It should be under Display.
More conversations should begin with “I assume your exploits last night were philanderous?”
Gravatar/comment match win.
The bro code taught me it’s cool as long as you never make eye contact.
It’s ok if you’re in a 3-way. It’s not gay when it’s in a 3-way. With a honey in the middle there’s some leeway. The area’s gray in a 1-2-3-way!
Better hope there WAS a honey in the middle, for Joe’s sake.
… “unless balls are touching”.
If swords don’t cross, balls don’t touch, and eyes don’t meet, it’s all good.
Unless you want it to be gay, in which case do all of the above.
… Whatever you happen to be ‘doing’ at the time, make sure you high five at the end and shout “NO HOMO”.
Cos otherwise you may catch ‘the gay’.
Willis could easily dedicate a whole comic to these two guys being roommates.
And then Willis took this comment, and showed it to himself 15 years ago.
Clearly the Doctor had something to do with this.
And his past self’s head blows up and thus wiping future Willis out of existence. That or Past Willis made a different webcomic instead of Roomies!
People rarely ask questions because they’re often afraid of the answers.
Dina dug it
Wait… was Dinah there? NOBODY CALLED THAT!
We’ve covered this already. It’s a shirt that multiple people have. Dina’s shirt would in no way whatsoever fit Joe.
But if it did…..
Don’t be too sure. Joe has a natural knack for stretching things out.
And Mike will stretch things out with your mother for a nickel…
Could you possibly provide links to strips showing other characters wearing the shirt? A “digitshirt” tag might be in order…
Until I see another character wear that shirt, it will remain the wind in my Dina/Joe ship’s sails.
Though tbh, if I do see others wearing that shirt, I will assume that Joe just passed it along, like some sort of sexually-transmitted -memorabilia.
“Now that I think about it…I’m pretty sure it was all dudes.”
“What kind of threesome did I have last night?”
The kind so terrible that your mind blocked it from your memory.
Or it could be so awesome that it could give you amnesia.
Or maybe it didn’t happen and you just dreamed about it.
How did you get into my mind?
I go in there all the time, take out the answers to tests and your girlfriend’s birthdays.
If you are in my mind, you know that I don’t have a girlfriend. Could find one that wants me around.
oh, you had one. I just took all information of her out of your mind. She’s kinda pissed that you haven’t contacted her in several months.
Wait, is she a hot librarian with black hair and knows 50 ways to kill people with her bare hands?
63. I took the last 13 out because they were too horrific.
Psyche! I made her up since I was 12.
So YOU’RE the one she left me for!
I shall have your head on a spike you deviant!
A drunken one. Thus, the hangover and the foggy memory.
Clearly, Joe and Dinah have two very different interpretations of that shirt.
Dina is going to see that shirt and try to talk to Joe.
…oh god, I didn’t even consider that possibility… *sigh*
I hope Joe doesn’t break Dina >:
… We are talking mentally, right?
I NEED BRAIN BLEACH
In all the ways
I don’t know what you guys are talking about. Sounds like an AWESOME possibility to me! ::thumbs up!::
DoA pairings so far are all very odd-couple-ish and I don’t think you can get much odder than Dina/Joe
It’d be entertaining for at least a few story arcs,
Danny’s lines are kinda overwritten here, but this cracked me up, so perhaps they should be overwritten more often.
Imagine Danny’s wearing a monocle and a top hat.
Lucky us! Between Shortpacked and this, we get a “Double Shot (of Joe’s Threesome Love).”
Woke up this morning, I was feeling so bad
What kind of threesome did I have?
Please don’t use the words Joe, threesome, and double shot in the same sentence again. Just please…
Joe ordered a frappucino for his morning coffee. Since he’d stayed up so late the night before, he upgraded his normal double shot of espresso to a threesome.
I also appreciated this synchrony!
Devil planted those fossils, Joe. Give the devil his due.
I see someone has been watching SMBC Theater.
If you think that’s their invention, I envy you.
It’s nice to be envied.
Looks like I rolled a natural 20.
I like boners
In that case, Willis has the shirt for you.
I like trains.
I like trains that look like boners.
Yes, you do.
I like turtles.
you know this could easily be the dialogue of any number of gamer webcomics starring two guys
except if it was ctrl+alt+del where it would have three times as many words and 5% of the funny
It works perfectly as a Penny Arcade comic as well, enough that I considered making a photoshop to that effect, then I remembered how tired I’m.
Gabe and Tycho have had wives (seperate wives) for most of the run. Maybe “Penny Arcade: The Early Years.”
I find it…odd…that you felt the need to clarify that they had separate wives.
I love this comic. I love it for many reasons, most perverse, some literary, but all awesome.
Does anyone else see that second panel!? Dayum!
I ship Danny x Soda bottle forever!
And this is why I love the internet
<3 <3 <3
Hah, glad I wasn’t the only one that was interested in that bottle. Honestly, it’s such a small detail, but I really liked that Danny was drinking a soda during this thing. It’s just a minor action, but I like it. It’s probably just the two of them talking as well. I associate Danny so much with being obsessive over his female love interests that I really cherish the panels where he’s just hanging out, not thinking about them, having a normal conversation.
It reminds me of this interview with some female comic writer from years and years ago (mid-late 90′s)–sorry, I don’t remember her name because I was, like, a pre-teen or teenager at the time–who said that she was never interested in Batman until she was just randomly flipping channels and landed on B:TAS. It was nothing special, it was just Robin and Batman in the Batmobile and Robin had his feet up. They were just talking, hanging out, whatever. And that’s when she got interested and Batman and wanted to write comics.
I guess I just like seeing Danny in his “downtime” from his usual plots that involve pain in some way.
I wonder what kind of soda it is. The blue label implies Pepsi
but I like the idea that Danny is some kind of soda hipster
and it is RC Cola instead.
I miiiiiight have to buy that shirt
Shipping it now: Joe/Ethan
what is with you and threesomes today?
The Willis triptych is currently running at a DAMN YOU factor of: 2
No, wait, Roomies isn’t *quite* about a threesome (though it’s skirting the issue). The tripod is unbalanced. That’s worth at least half a damn, which becomes a total of three after rounding.
If it’s _.5, do you not round to the even number? It’s still 2.
In the US the rule is to round up from _.5. (Except in certain financial situations where you alternate the direction point fives round each time.)
That’s when you know you’re drinking too damn much.
I just realized. Joe believes in the boner interpretation of the shirt and Dina believes in the paleontology interpretation. If they meet up they can have an argument or a comical misunderstanding!
I’d ship that.
Perhaps an accidental date? Joe thinks he’s agreed to some boning only to find himself at a museum with Dina excitedly talking about dinosaurs with what she believes to be a fellow enthusiast. Eventually they find common ground in Dinobot. Night ends with them plastering posters all over the school.
Later as they grow more knowledgeable in their respective fields of study they will attempt to combine their knowledge of paleontology and engineering in ways that will make the world tremble.
And then they sex.
can we get panel two without text?
Dina and Joe had a threesome? Shortpacked and DoA are joining together in the multiverse.
Wait, is that bone a femur?
Man, I want some more Sal side-boob.
Can we get some more side-boob in this comic?
Well, based on this comic Joe may be taking his shirt off shortly. So you may not have long to wait!
Would Dorothy or Amber side-boob be an acceptable substitute?
Apparently Dina is insanely popular here so lemme ask you Dina lovers:
If given the choice of who she gets paired up with, who would it be?
A large part of this universe’s Dina’s appeal is that she is so cognitively left field that she wouldn’t know what to do with a relationship if she found it.
Heh, I wouldn’t bet on that if the only penalty was having to sit on the naughty step for ten minutes.
After all, nothing in the Bible says anything bad about lesbians. It works!!!
The Old Testament doesn’t. New Testament does.
It depends on your reading.
I like how two separate universes are involving th topic of threesomes and Joe today
This is why when you agree to do a threeway that you work out all the details, IN ADVANCE!
Boners do not involve actual bones and really shouldn’t involve digging. Joe’s not too bright? But then, he gets laid a lot, so, stereotype complete, then.
If you’re a walrus, they involve bones. A single, four-foot one, to be exact.
Joe’s not a walrus. He’s not smart enough to be one at this stage in his life.
How ’bout a lemming?
In most placental mammals, actually: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baculum
Humans are in the minority.
And with this comic, Willis perfectly echoes the readers’ confusion at what this shirt could potentially represent vis a vis boners.
I need a ‘Super hot’ option for the poll.
I have to wonder if both comics involving threesomes, and Joe, are coincidental or not….
