They are the most married.
is that recognized in the state of Indiana? or are they just the most civil unioned?
Civil-union-ed, I suppose.
Trying to say it just makes it sound and feel really awkward.
Someone will be sleeping on the couch tonight.
If I had a roomate I’d sleep on the couch too. Couches are comfortable.
If I had a couch I’d sleep on my roomate. Roomates are comfortable.
If I had a mate I’d sleep on my room. Rooms are comfortable.
If I had a room I would mate on my couch.
If I had a couch I would room on my mate.
If my room had a couch, my mate and I would Joe on it.
If my mate had a room I would couch on the sleep.
I joe you guys.
Not without buying us dinner first, you don’t!
If I had a handful of nickels, I’d do all your Mom’s on the couch in the room while your ‘mate got it on video!
Alright folks pack it up. Great work and kudos on the fact delivery!
If I had a mate I would couch on my room. Whilst asleep on the wheel. On the ship. Because he’s a ship’s mate.
Especially the rounder ones.
Mine wasn’t. She was all angular in the elbows and knees, plus if I ever tried to sleep on her there’d be the constant beatings from my girlfriend.
Well, obviously you should have slept oh the roommate together.
It’s just Guy Love. Between two guys!
Guy Love: He’s mine; I’m his!
There’s nothing gay about it in our eyes.
You ask me ’bout this thing we share, and he tenderly replies,
it’s guy love! Between two guys…
“Two buff guys standing side by side. That’s all. What? What’s the problem?”
That was rather rude of Joe.
They’re practically engaged, Jacob.
Sounds like a step down, really.
Man, my friend always Dan a relationship. Weird how his name is Joe.
Please tell me your name is Dan and that you’re a total man-whore. Please.
And that your friend Joyce is a lesbian who’s trying to make her relation ship work with a bible thumping dude named Ethan….
Actually no. Don’t tell us if that happens.
Nah, but my friend Billie is extremely depressed right now and is drinking a lot of booze. Luckily Ruth is there to try and help her out right, with more booze… I should go check on them.
…Joyce is a lesbian now? Little premature on that, don’t you think?
…wait, never mind.
It’s not if you read everything before that :3.
So which one is Turk and which one is J.D.?
As if you have to ask.
does that mean ruth is Dr. Cox?
Then Billie’d be Jordan.
Would amber be Elliot?
Elliot’s more like Joyce. Desperate to please and wracked with WASPy nueroses.
Mike is the Janitor, obviously.
And now I re-read the comic in Turk and J.D.’s voices, making it 100% better. Thank you, kind sir.
So did I. I wasn’t sure whose voice to read Jacob’s line in, but eventually I settled on Dr. Kelso.
I re-read it using the voices in my head. All I kept hearing was “Just kill them! Kill them and eat their livers!”
Does that change the outcome at all?
Mawage, that bwessed awangement, that dweam wifin a dweam.
Then wove, twue wove, will fowwow you fowevah.
Anybody want a peanut?
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
YES!!! 😀 OMG YES!
Kern, I love you so much. 😀
I hope that when I have a relationship, I will never Dan it into the ground.
But I hope we Joe it up regularly.
As long as you don’t Joe the relationship. Joe-ing in general is a positive thing, but a relationship that’s been Joe’d never lasts long.
Aren’t you like 50?
YES. Sure the odds are rather low but if 70 and 80 somethings can find love, then there is a small chance that I won’t have to die a bachelor.
Never ask a mongoose its age!
Do you have any idea how easy women are after 35? Where do you think that joke about “the difference between dog poop and….” came from?
The women are easier to pick up!!
Since 1997, Buddy.
Cue speculation as to what other names-as-verbs would be.
Joycing someone would involve annoying them to no end and then scaring them off with your misguided view of how the world works.
Dorothy – To focus all of one’s efforts on a single thing to the neglect of other aspects of one’s life.
ex. Man Joe was always a man-whore, but now he’s just Dorthying it.
Sarahing would involve never bothering to meet that person, but assuming they suck and hold that against them.
ex. Danny Sarahs M.Night.Shyamalan because his movies suck, unaware that he is a really nice guy who just likes to kick back and try to get a laugh out of the people who read the comments section on webcomics.
Joyce, verb- To recount or proselytize one’s own views in order to reaffirm them in your own mind.
ex. To this day my little brother Joyces that the Star Wars prequels are better than the original films.
Joe = Sexing up
Dan = Grinding down
Ethan = Hide, conceal
Dina = To show up unexpectedly
All of which are totally usable in a sexual context.
Dinaing is just the act of randomly appearing in a room (or having silently been there the entire time) while everybody assumed you were across town or something.
Gah, beaten by 1 minute…
your comment got dina’d 😉
Ex. I was coming out of the bathroom when suddenly My roomate dina’d me. I thought she was getting her nails done!
Billie: When you are very attractive, and seem like you’ve sealed the deal, but either by fault of your own or someone else you fail to make a connection at the last minute.
Sierra = Going barefoot
Ex. When I’m home I just Sierra all day. Air the dogs out.
To Walky, is to walk to Taco Bell instead of drive because all members in your party are unillegible to do so for any reason.
Better define that one too!
Mike: To ruin someones day just for the hell of it.
My day was well and truly miked… yeah that works well.
If this does not become commonly used, I will be sad.
When I get mad some times I take it out on other people and Mike the hell out of them.
I’d think that Miking would involve Joeing someone’s mother. For a nickel, etc.
Getting or giving the nickel? This is important, for it defines man-whoring vs. Man-Whoring!!
Jason: To wear one accessory with all of your outfits, so much so that you’re defined by it.
ex. Wow, you’ve worn that hat every day for three weeks now! Are you trying to jason it in?
Of course, to Sal would be to enter a room through the window.
To Amber would be to secretly dress up as a superhero and fight crime.
To Amber would also mean staying up all night on the Internet reading slash fic.
I think we’ve all ambered at least once or twice.
Followed by a frantic ethaning when somebody walks into the room.
Wouldn’t that be to Sal?
Or would that be to exit through a window?
So would Mary mean to not put clothes on until late afternoon, or to be extremely judgmental of anyone that doesn’t share your view?
Or should it be super specific and mean to be extremely judgmental of anyone that doesn’t share your view while not putting clothes on until late afternoon?
Galasso: to plot world domination while running a mildly successful local business
See Also: Mcdonalds.
Joeing: Man, you don’t even wanna know.
Ethan: To ignore something and hope it goes away.
Ex: “My sink’s dripping, but I’m Ethaning it. It’s not worth the bother.”
“My sink is dripping, but it’s very embarrassed about that reality. And you should see it “Ethan” the next morning, after the plumber uses his snake!”
(I’ll leave the plumber ‘butt-crack’ lines for the next person!)
There’s a green wig on the floor. A clue…
It isn’t a wig silly! It’s a buried Lemming!
But where’s the blue paw print?
So the culprit had to be a COSPLAYER, of course!!!
Can’t you see Danny, Joe’s a manwhore for your sake
Joe will die during a manwhoring, as a sacrifice for Joyce and the rest of the fundies who deny him!
And on the 3rd day, his zombie corpse, with some help from Viagra, will rise! to do some more, and cleanse the masses from the urethra of —-
(sorry…. I ran out of bad ideas on this one.)
If by positive energy you mean reporters.
Good thing Joe gathers that positive energy. It’s how they fight off the undead!
You can really see all the positive energy in action.
Only in third edition.
Dammit, I just love Joe. He’s definitely my favorite.
I, too, love Joe, and I would be 100% with you, if only it weren’t for Jacob. HE is DEFINITELY my favorite.
Look at his face! His wee little face up there!
Interesting strip. The comments were pretty clever tonight. Love the verbage.
I’m waiting for Ethan to see this, assume Danny and Joe are bisexual, and then try to ask one of them out after his relationship with Joyce breaks down.
So will “Dan” now be considered a verb as well as a noun?
Sneaky Scrubs reference?
And by “positive energy,” he means “sex stank.”
joe really really likes turning people’s names into verbs
I would suggest calling “turning people’s names into verbs” joe-ing, but no doubt he already has another meaning for “joe-ing”.
that’s actually come up once or twice in the other comic. Maybe in this one. I forget.
Can someone with an obsessive fixation on Willis link every single comic where Joe has used the term “Joe-ing”
None in book 1, at least!
On Calvin and Hobbes, turning any noun into a verb is called verbing. Verbing weirds language.
By no means invented by Calvin and Hobbes. The process of verbing has happened for centuries. Even the word “verbing” has been around for quite some time.
I associate it with Community.
Danny, I see a lot of myself in you.
I knew there was a reason I hated you! God, Danny, you suck.
He “sucks” because you are in him! What the hell are you doing in him in the first place!?
Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
Dumbiverse Jacob’s only had like two lines, and yet he’s still one of my favourite characters.
Dude we’re a little married.
I know, I love it.
I wonder if they got rings.
Green Lantern ones, obviously.
Danny’s is blue, actually.
Is there a power ring of mopiness?
He *was* hoping Amazi-girl would be there…
…That makes too much sense.
Is no one else wondering why there’s a Sunday update? o_o.
No. Just you. The rest of us paid enough attention over the last few weeks to realize that we donated $50k to Willis’ kickstarter project and made this happen.
How are these two friends again?!?
not friends, married….
Eh I think most guys have a heterosexual life partner thing going with their best friend from high school. My boy’s still lives with us and he acts more married to him than me! It’s funny
I had a hetero life partner when I was young… until he started hanging with douche bags and I hooked up this awesome chick who fights crimes…
wait, sorry I think my perception of reality is starting to warp
Nothing makes me much happier (at least in this series) than when Danny gets his self-righteous ass handed to him.
Isn’t it Joe who’s being the jerk here?
For some reason it never seems to matter. It’s kind of creepy how much people in these comments hate Danny.
Agreed. I don’t get the Dorothy hate either. Everyone just likes to be judgmental, I think.
In THIS series, I have yet to start hating Danny. So…I think Joe is the douche here. Joe doesn’t have relationships. His goal is to hit it and quit it, so YES obviously he’s going to want to have as good of a time as possible so that the underwear will drop. That’s not Danny’s goal. So Joe and Danny can’t really give each other advice, in my opinion.
We need to find a way to combine the terms “Bromance” and “married”
Matribrony sounds like a brony wedding.
