It’s the best stuff on Earth!
Right after recycling and that wonderful “clink clink” sound!
The clink sound of LIES.
And where I’m from, the sound of cash.
Ah yes. Reminded me of my college days, hitting a few of the big lecture halls before the janitors in order to scrounge enough soda cans to redeem and then use that money to buy dinner.
Why anyone ever reminisces fondly about college is beyond me.
Really? It was one of the best times of my life. I was off alone for the first time (3 hours from home), surrounded by others in the same situation, and lived in a co-ed floor in res, with more girls than boys, and some of them (the girls) were even interested in me, even met my first real girlfriend there, and later my wife. It was heaven.
My undergrad years were spent majoring in art. I was surrounded by awesome art nerds every day and suddenly had many pretty girls who showed interest in me and interest in doing things I thought I’d only ever see performed by professionals on the internet.
Now HIGHSCHOOL, I don’t understand why anyone ever reminisces about that.
The best thing about highschool was lunchtime.
For me it was marching band. But yeah, compared to what I’m doing in college, high school was shit.
Because it’s better than high school.
Cash that you already paid.
When I was a student the limit on bringing booze from France to the UK was about one bottle of spirits & a few bottles of wine, but the saving on duty was huge, so you took as much as you dared. Walking through the “nothing to declare” channel past the inspectors and hearing that telltale clink sound of bottles in your luggage was a unique feeling I wouldn’t want to repeat.
Didn’t get stopped, though.
We all love Snapple.
20 proof ‘Snapple’
oh hey, looks like Joyce has become possessed.
SWEET FATHER-FUCKING HADES, JOYCE IS POSSESSED.
Clearly the glass she is holding contains the ‘devil’s drink’. 😀
You mean ginger ale with roofies in it?
I was going to say watered down rum.
Going by my Joyce grav’s expression, I would say more like ‘ruthies’. 😀
Though with it being Joyce, I am gonna go with alcohol added to her kool-aid.
Who would win in a star contest between PM’s and Kernanator’s gravatar?
I think Angry Bird in ASmellyOgres gravatar wins both.
Yelling Bird, not Angry Bird.
Joyce spotted a wild atheist. Atheist uses Attract! Joyce is unphased. Joyce uses Bible! Atheist uses Gift of Friendship! Joyce is protected by Bible! Atheist uses Bad Pun. Joyce uses REVERSAL! And the Atheist is down! One. Two. Threeeeeeee! Joyce gains 2 Exp. and one Walky Smooch*.
*Walky Smooches are nontransferable and they must be used in the presence of Walky and Dorothy.
Klinky clink, clinkle
Jolly old saint Krinkle.
This brings up a philosophical question. Observing Billie’s ample posterior, how many bottles would one butt load for her be?
Still not enough booze, erm, snapple
I want to say a 20 pack but that seems a bit conservative
In every flavor except Diet.
How much drink could a drunk drunk drink if a drunk drunk could drink drink?
Perhaps if a drunk drunk drink when a drunk drank drunk drink, then the drunk drank drunk drunks drunkenly drink drunken drund;ls dka; and dink dung snunk drank drunk?
Slurrrry, i jus ‘ad a LOD of Snapppple.
A drunk drunk’d drink drinks until the drunk drunk can’t drink drinks anymore.
shur wurds r makin da page spin. ow duz a dunk drin dink dunk drunk drinky drunks drunk?
I don’t know…
The answer is 42. Because it’s ALWAYS forty-two. Because this is the internet.
Can you repeat the question?
I’m willing to take a crack at answering this, using a hands-on approach.
That’s not the only buttload, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN
(The joke is her ass is big)
So is a buttload of butts just one butt, suddenly making it a really small amount of butts?
I think it’s pain load of butts.
I almost didn’t recognize Billy. But then, booze.
I didn’t at all. I thought it was a new character until I read the tags.
it’s the fact she isn’t wearing her glasses that threw me
Over here in South Oz, you can get 10c back for every empty bottle you take to the recyclers.
Also in the Nothern Territory… not that I live there. I can read the bottles, though.
Lucky, we only get 5 cents here in “Kirk” country
In New Zealand we don’t get a cent
Speaking of butts…
alternate Billie line:
The remains of the last girl who asked too many questions.
My greatest fear in life is not winding up with a girl like Billie.
That gravitar is perfect.
You want an Asian alcoholic girlfriend?
Don’t we all?
I rather not have an alcoholic for a GF, moreso since I’m a teetotaller, I also rather she didn’t smoke.
So do I. Knucks?
Yes. Yes I do.
Who doesn’t? You know besides straight women and Gay men I mean.
Once you go Billie, you never need a willie.
Are you suggesting that if Billie became your GF, you will never get laid again?
I want one, just without the alcoholic part. Just one question, which part of Asia are we talking here?
In this case, mainly the Chinese, Japanese and Korean parts.
I’ll take Japanese then.
Turning Japanese? :p
Well, I like the cuddly chub & glasses parts of Billie. I like a girl with a booty and a bit of a belly (and softness in other places, too).
Had one, the asian girlfriend part, not so much the alcoholic part.
Also, CRY SOME MORE!
So many Joyces. So many different moods.
I kinda want to change my gravatar now to triangle smile Joyce so that we get the full spectrum or something.
I regret nothing.
We should all ‘rejoyce’. 😀
I AM OVERJOYCED.
Personally, I’m Joyceful.
Mind if I Joyce in?
Joyce out, yo!
It’s a Joycey thing.
Will the real Joyce Joycey please stand up?
there is An Abundance of Joyces
And now I am all Joyced out.
Vat was that, sandvich? Kill them all? GOOD IDEA!
No need to be rude, Billie. She just wants to ass you a question.
Not to butt in, but I think she realizes that.
Both of you are being Cheeky.
Well look who decided to rear his head!
Well I had to get off my Duff sometime.
I am posteriorating that she does not wish to be disturbed in her task.
Seems simple in hind sight.
Hope she put this incident behind her.
Butt if she does, it might end up biting her in the end.
Well, she just have to make sure that this incident won’t rear it’s ugly head.
I feel the need to butt in here and inform you all that you are making asses of yourselves.
TIL Billie’s ass goes “Clink Klinkle Clink.”
So, you could say she has some junk in the trunk? *rimshot* And cue angry comments.
Snapple, Crapple, and Popple.
All part of a complete(ly unhealthy) breakfast.
It’s like rice crispies, but it’s broken shards of glass!
“Just like a vodka shake, only crunchy.”
Maybe it is Snapple. Who knows, Dumbing of Age could’ve been a 90s-era anime dub all along.
Quick! *Throws a rice ball into the comic* Let us see what they change it to!
Riceball? You meant to say ‘doughnut” right? 😛
What? Nooo. Clearly we’re eating sandwiches.
…and the mini octopi are sudden;y ‘cocktail weiners’.
Bubbly Bottles of Snapple?
But if I recall correctly, this webcomic has alredy mentioned gaming technology that has only existed in recent times and I am fairly certain that at least one character has a smrt phone.
Actually, that still sounds like it could fit in an anime
We already have a tsundere, a kuudere and even a yandere, so it’s possible.
Keep in mind that japan is always 20 years ahead of us technoligically.
That’s the weird thing about Japan, despite its rep, for most part, it’s not a very hi-tech place.
…you linked a cracked article. Maybe it’s a serious one, but since most of them aren’t, it’s like the worst possible source.
Parts are accurate (otaku have a bad rep in Japan) and parts are exaggerated (Japanese is not impossible to learn, guys, the writing system just takes a bit of getting used to). The bit about it being low-tech is misleading; the way companies function (such as using fax and paper and whatnot) changes very slowly, but other things are very high tech compared to here. There are people who aren’t that great with computers because they do EVERYTHING internet-related with their phones instead and have for years. They do not send texts, but e-mails. Really, the development and focus of tech is different, but that doesn’t mean worse.
/lecture on Japan
I agree with you Mongoose… not all japan is high tech, and also, they have a big senior population…
But that article its an outrage.. as a “use to live in fukuoka guy”
I call it exagerated.. and bullshit…
20 years ahead? So, will we be seeing giant robots in the near future?
If you can recycle the evidence in the middle of the night, you didn’t drink it.
So, is she about to run into Ruth again?
Billie in her undies and a trash bag full of booze. That’s a good weekend.
One might even go so far as to say it’s the best weekend.
Unfortunately I’m pretty sure today is a Thursday in comic time. 😉
That’s when weekends started at my college!
I had no idea Snapple made a stout.
“99 bottles of beer on the floor, 99 bottles of beer…”
You pick one up, chug it down, 98 bottles of beer on the floor.
You pick one up, chug it down, 97 bottles of beer on the floor.
Ya pick one up, chug it down, 96 bottles of beer on th’ floor.
Ya pick one up, chug it down, 95 bottles of beer on th’ floor.
Ya pick one up, shug it down, 94 bottlesh of beer on th’ floor.
Ya pick one up, chug it down 93 bottles of beer on th’ floor
(kern is a lightweight it would seem)
You pick one up, chug it down, 92 bottles of beer on the floor.
You pick one up, chug it down, 91 bottles of beer on the floor.
Pick one up, chug it down, 90 bottles of beer on the floor.
You pick one up, chug it down, 89 bottles of beer on the floor.
You pick one up, chug it down, 88 bottles of beer on the floor.
Pick one up, chug it down, 86 bottles of beer on the floor.
Ya pick one up, chug it down, 94 bottles of beer on th’ floor.
Somewhere, Walky’s ears prick-up at the word “Snapple”
We would have also excepted “My hopes and dreams”.
Here lies Billy’s hopes and dreams.
Panel 4: Side ASS SHOT.
Excellent, another one to add to the collection.
I wonder it that’s Ruth’s very same ‘Cut Myself Shaving’ excuse for the exact same situation? Why think of one yourself when you could just copy someone less stupid, but with the very same kind of dorm violations to cover up?
The alcoholic’s walk of shame
Our housing corner store sold IBC root beer and cream soda in glass bottles, so that was the go-to in the dorms. As an RA, I never pushed it. (But then, I was less Ruth; i.e. I did it for the free room and board and not so much the authority and femur-collecting.)
Femurs are the only useful part you fleshings have!
Billie has brown panties? Wouldn’t a party girl like her have something less boring? IDK I think her whole colour palette is browns and beiges which does not match my idea of a modern woman of fashion :p
Those are her “I am not currently trying to get laid” panties
Maybe they’re chocolate edible panties.
Wait, those are real?
Better to hide the skidmarks with. 😛
And you pretty much eating appetizer for the “main” course, if you know what I mean.
It’s technically a dark red, towards black. There’s no yellow or blue in it at all.
Actually, this pixel is technically a dark orange (therefore brown). Whatever you’re using to design these comics, it’s doing its best to undermine your authority. Slightly, on that particular pixel, anyway.
Yeah, you’ll notice that I do my standard shading these days (since the talk in the Galasso’s bathroom) with 30% dark red instead of 30% flat black. However, there’s still no yellow in that pixel. It’s actually still the same hue. It’s just a different saturation.
Damn art majors.
Do you use RGB or CMYK?
Funny thing, using gimp to decompose the gif into CMYK shows that most of the image has at least some yellow in it – and most of the panties is around 22% in yellow …
That doesn’t make much sense in HSV, but in HSV, it doesn’t seem to make sense at all to say that a color has an amount of another color in it. Otherwise you could say that red is 50% yellow and 50% magenta. And dark red would have 50% dark yellow and 50% dark magenta. Or any other equally (or more) nonsensical combination.
Really, what does “it has some yellow in it” or “it doesn’t have any yellow in it” even mean?
I kinda hope this scene holds on Mary, rather than taking the obvious route and having Ruth show up. There’s something about this ‘verse’s Mary that I find fascinating.
THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY.
Can’t believe I didn’t realize the first go-around that Willis already went there.
That was over for me when she yelled at Joyce for hanging out with Dorothy and Sierra.
Hey man. Don’t knock a Hawaiian Sunrise or Kiwiberry Boat till you’ve had em! 2 rather nummy Vodka/Snapple cocktails.
So is it really sad that i took out my trash today filled to the brim with bottles like hers? Only mine actually WAS filled with a buttload of Snapple? I think I have a Snapple addiction here guys.
You sound like my college roommate from last year. He drank nothing but Snapple and Dr. Pepper.
I too had a Snapple problem in college.
Couldn’t get enough of that Mango Madness?
She could just swing the bag in a continuous circle so it wouldn’t be shaking back and forth. On the other hand then she would be wildly swinging a bag of very breakable glass…
I drink my apple juice (and sometimes Hawaiian Punch) like it’s friggin’ booze.
So how does it feel getting punched by a Hawaiian?
I’ve drunk Snapple…once, I think. I’ve had worse.
This is why secret alcoholics should only drink the hard stuff.
And if that is the hard stuff, girl’s got a problem.
If that is the hard stuff, girl’s got a liver of iron, too.
It’s nice to see that Mary can glare accusingly even right after waking up.
Ohmigod, you guys, I think…I think Billie might have a drinking problem.
Oops, I meant to say Billie’s drinking problem is nothing compared to Ted Striker’s
Well, he never got over Macho Grande. What’s Billie’s excuse?
Billie’s been dipping into her favorite French beverage again…Jacques Dannielle!
A buttload indeed.
Looks like Mary’s finally decided to start getting dressed before 3 pm.
“Hey, drunky! That’s right, I’m calling you a drunky and there’s nothing you can do about it because I’m protected by my impenetrable cereal box fort and there’s nothing you can do abou– AH!”
Speaking of buttloads….are you sure you wanna walk around the halls in your panties, Billie? The last thing you want is for Ruth to…get a load of your butt. At least I assume so….
Well, you know what they say about assuming. You make an ass out of… dat ass. Where was I going with this?
Anyway, she just wants Ruth to assk nicely first. Bongo shouldna shoved her. She’d have been down with bongo trying to suck the booze out of her tongue if bongo hadna shoved her.
What a coincidence, I drink booze like it’s Snapple!
(By keeping it in the fridge and never touching it until it wastes away)
I love me some Snapple.
I wonder where this is going
Ruth is the obvious suspect for interruption but I guess it could be elsewise.
Down the hall to the recycler?
Good excuse. 😛
I’m honestly surprised anyone is asking! I guess she is in the freshman dorm but still!
CLINK CLINK CLANK CLINK CLANK
Have I ever done this one before. Except replace the curious floor-mates with my parents (I never lived in residence, boo).
