I want some nachos.
I’m eating nachos right now!
…Gonna share ‘em with us? >.>
we all have our priorities straight here
DEFINITELY Walky does!
I rather have potato crisps.
Dr. Pepper. Always.
I prefer nachitos.
Do Nachitos even exist in this paradigm?
What even are those?
Huh. That’s actually better than what I wanted to put.
I know, it sounds weird too.
He’s NACHO ORDINARY WAITER
I know this may not mean much coming from a stranger, but…I’m proud of you.
Well it’s NACHOur fault the opportunity for the pun was right there!
I hate you for coming up with this before I could.
First pun, first serve.
Fuck you, NuLobo.
That was pretty cheesy, dude.
Barbra Dunkelman…is that you? lol
I think you mean Barbra PUNkelman.
Just thought I’d chip in and say good job with the pun.
Good priorities Walky
I’m glad that even in front of Dorothy’s parents, Walky has his priorities firmly in order.
One of the best ways of checking out someone’s character is by how they treat the waiters.
This may not say great things about Walky. He doesn’t even know Cliff’s name! It’s like he’s just a walking nacho to him. So insensitive.
“Is that all I am to you!? Walking nachos!?” *runs out of the room crying.
“Of course not! You bring me Pepsi too! I said that, right? Yeah, I said that.”
Nachos will always get my vote.
Wait, so if you get one of those big expensive private boxes, the nachos are free?
Lessee…nachos are like $6 at a football game…and in three hours I can eat…zounds! The private box would pay for itself!
you should probably factor in the medical bills once the nacho consumption reaches that scale.
He’ll die a cheesy death.
And it will be glorious.
We got a box at an Isotopes game once. It was like $900. Can you eat 150 trays of nachos in three hours? And that was a minor-league baseball game in Albuquerque, not Big Ten football.
Plus the food wasn’t even free. I guess it was free to our guests, since we paid for it.
I go to Isotope games too! Also Go Lobos!
Walky has no idea if the nachos are free or not. He just knows he isn’t the one paying for them.
Dorothy’s loving how her man’s not falling apart. She may even bang him in a closet during half time.
But they might run into Ethan in there.
(party poppers) “Surprise!”
(and the audience goes WOOOOOOOOOO~!)
(dog goes woof)
But what does the fox say?
Sorry, it’s early yet, that’s where my head goes.
And then I realise that’s probably where you wanted me to go anyway.
That’s not my cow!
IDK why, but that last panel just warms my heart. So cute!
If you bring me free nachos, I will build a shrine to you in my house.
Call me paranoid about crazies, but this seems like a good reason never to bring you free nachos.
BUT IF WE DO NOT HE WILL BUILD YOU AN ALTER OF PAIN!!!
Oh, no nachos? Fine but there is somthing on your face [PUNCH] IT WAS PAIN!
The most important criteria for how important someone is is how willing they are to bring you food.
Yeah, you saved my life, but you didn’t bring me a hotdog so I still like that guy better.
This is why those saint bernards who bring you whiskey in the alps are such heroes.
I thought that was cognac . . .
Is that also your criteria for a wife?
No, my criteria for that is how many Pokemon they can name from memory.
Thanks to the 6th Generation, there are now over 600 Pokemons to remember, the only two things I know about the 6th Gen is that they will indroduce the Fairy Type which is strong against Dragon Types and there will be a Fairy type Eevee evolution available.
Plasma, are… are you coming on to Kernanator?
(it’s the condom hat, isn’t it?)
Kerny doesn’t have to worry about any sort of cum thanks to his magic hat.
I’m just saying that 600+ is a lot of Pokemons to remember is all, but then again the average Japanese citizen has to learn over 1900 everyday kanji by the time they reach highschool.
Eh, it tends to help if you can memorize their types. Then you can go through each individual type combination and list off all Pokemon you recall in those types. You can remember a lot that way.
Alternatively, I’m just a dork. Either-or.
Yeah, I’m not crazy enough to require someone to remember all the Pokemon. Even I don’t know them all off the top of my head. 10 seems like a more reasonable recommendation.
I have my own criteria for a wife too…if you guys are interested.
My criteria starts with “likes me rather a lot”, and gets even more specific from there.
I am damn picky.
That’s the “My boy’s got connections” face, that Dorothy has.
Connections to free nachos and Pepsi. The most important connections.
With that, Walky’s gonna get laid tonight.
But first, nachos.
Not a bad type of “connection” if you ask me…
Connections are mighty important for someone wanting to be President one day.
Free nachos and Pepsi are going to be a part of Dorothy’s political platform.
I’d have to vote for her just out of principle alone!
And then comes the strict nacho and Pepsi rationing such wastefulness brought upon us. Followed by mass riots and passionate youths demanding a government based on coca-cola.
God damn Dorothy is adorable in that last panel.
Only I can say who is a big WIG around here.
Really? Hair puns.
They should LOCK you up for that.
CUT it out, all of ya!
Hey, if ya don’t like it, why don’t ya just va-MOOSE?
Hair puns make you want to just curl up and dye.
Two puns at once! I like your style.
Thank you, thank you!
I’d like to come straighten out this thread, but I think you’ll just brush me aside.
Didn’t we do hair puns on Thursday?
Don’t you mean … Thairsday?
I still feel like we should WEAVE one more pun in here somehow…
Don’t be silly! The Whigs’ve been defunct for AGES. Robin’s obviously part of the Communist Party.
And here I thought she was from the Bull Moose party.
Comfort zone unlocked. All systems cocksure captain. Steady as she goes number one.
Everything will be AOK just as long as there are no hidden klingons on your starboard bow.
Scrape ‘em off, Jim!
Walky. Caramel. Hot.
It’s life, Jim, but not as we know it
not as we know it
not as we know it
It’s life, Jim, but not as we know it
not as we know it, captain
We come in peace.
Shoot to kill.
Shoot to kill.
Shoot to kill.
There’s Klingons on the starboard bow.
There’s Klingons on the starboard bow.
Starboard bow, Jim.
You guys really know how to Make it So!
So much win! We come in peace. Shoot to kill!
All systems nominal.
Walky I thought you had good taste!
I quite like Pepsi Next myself.
Dr. Pepper ALL THE WAY
Yotomoe is correct
+2 more from me
+2 more from me, Dr. Pepper for life.
We already know he’s a Mountain Dew fan, so perhaps he likes Pepsi products in general.
And stadiums usually only have one brand or the other. Though it wouldn’t surprise me if the guys with the private boxes get Coke products while the peasants are stuck with Pepsi.
Coke products are only more commonly drunk cos that is all there is available in many places.
Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper is the epitome of soda pop. Other kinds of Dr. Pepper, most variations of Coca~Cola, and Big Red are also high ranking.
All I’m saying, is that restaurants always run out of coke before pepsi.
I concur with the first statement. The worst thing about living in Northern California is that there is no Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper. Only Cherry or Diet sans vanilla.
I am in a similar situation. Here in Alberta there is no Cherry Coke. I brought back 8 cases from my last visit to my parents in Arizona.
NOOOOOOPE. Any diet soda tastes disgusting, even if it’s Dr. Pepper.
Yeah, I agree completely
ITYM especially if it’s Dr Pepper.
Any Dr. Pepper tastes disgusting, even if it’s diet.
Sir! I take great offense to this! Mocking my precious Pepsi?! I shall scorn you for this!
I made this account just so I can say how absolutley adorable Dorothy’s face is in the last panel.
Boy’s got his priorities right.
Of course. Walky knows that the person holding your food is the single most important person in the room, because there is nothing worse than having to wonder if they spat in your drink.
Pepsi, Walky? You are dead to me. Do you hear me? DEAD!
On the other hand, Dorothy seems so impressed with you that she probably can’t wait to get you out of those clothes (after you get nachos on them).
I prefer Cheerwine, personally.
You too shall receive my scorn for this insult!
I find the idea of Robin being someone you can namedrop to impress people hilarious.
Me too! I did almost a double-take there. It made me giggle, to be honest. I’ve never really thought of Robin as “a congresswoman,” here or in the Other Comic. She’s always been Robin, who, oh yeah, was in Congress for a while. The idea that people consider her important and respectable is certainly a different take from the sugar-fuelled lovable rogue I still think of her as.
Outside of the DC universe.
Well, only if you name drop Dick Grayson or Tim Drake. Or if you really that well connected, Damian Wayne.
It’s not her specifically; notice Walky didn’t mention her name? For that matter he didn’t mention the dean by name either. It’s the position that’s important, not necessarily the person in it.
Walky’s got quite the charisma.
That Dorothy face is, “And THAT’s why he’s my boyfriend.”
He’s in a fancy box full of bigwigs and is getting excited about nachos. His attitudes are endearing for Dorothy. While she’s freaking out about making perfect impressions, he’s just chilling and being who he is. It’s something she lacks, and a big part of why she loves spending time with him.
That last panel’s the first time I’ve ever seen the two of them as a couple that could have some staying power (which isn’t to say I don’t like them together, I think they’re pretty adorable); it being Walky being himself and geeking about free snacks that makes her all blushy and smiley, not his successfully impressing her dad which just seems to confuse/weird her out.
Yeah, that’s why I like them as a couple. Dorothy needs to learn some of that, or she’s going to be yesterday’s-Dorothy all the time before she’s thirty. On the flip side, Walky needs to learn some of Dorothy’s discipline, or he’s going to be in trouble when he starts hitting challenges that he can’t slack his way through. If he helps her loosen up, and she helps him tighten down, they’ll both be the better for it.
I rechristen this ship! *hits the prow of the ship with a bottle of Pepsi and a carton of cheese nachos*
So is Cliff just a single hovertext punchline or will he become a recurring character?
A recurring character, often mentioned but always out of frame.
Cliff is no recurring character. HE IS THE MAIN CHARACTER.
Is that why he doesn’t need a tag?
I hereby request a spinoff series focusing on the adventures of Jordan Brown, Riley DeSanto, Dirk Lonestyle, and Cliff.
Aww, she seems glad that Walky is still Walky.
Also, Cliff would be better if her brought free Mt. Dew. Maybe Walky would even call him by name. Just Sayin’.
Never change, Walky. Never change.
Not even his underwear?
You’re assuming Walky wears underwear? He can barely be convinced to get out of pajama pants.
Also, his little wardrobe malfunction with Mike’s mom would’ve been harder (though not impossible) with underwear. Just throwin’ it out there.
The wardrobe malfunction was when he was wearing only boxers, the sort with a slit in the front for easy access.
Walky, you are the best character in this damn comic.
eheh. she’s blushing because she thought he was going to clam up and be super nervous and quiet like when he and she first met, but instead he’s holding a normal conversation and might even be impressing her parents. she realized in that panel that she’s the only person who can make him freeze up and become smitten and nervous.
it’s cute, i like it
Like that last bit. Cute.
So that smile is more, “thank god he doesn’t have the hots for my dad”.
She’s only blushing when he mentions the nachos and pepsi. Less that he’s having a normal conversation, and more that she’s blushing when Walky is his Walkyest.
Yes. She was afraid of the Monkey Master hurling Walky.
Why is Cliff not tagged?!
If a single piece of Cliff was showing like a hand, a bit of hair or even just his speech bubble, he would rate a mention.
Why is Cliff not tagged, jerk.
Why would Cliff be tagged as a jerk?
I’ll say this about Walky: he’s got his priorities straight.
heh, walky knows how to charm parents.
also, anyone else horrified by dorothy’s father in the last pannel? he looks like some for of slug monster things.
I am horrified that he broke head (and hair) direction synchronization.
Grats Walky, you stayed true to yourself and still make Dorothy happy. WTG. Last panel is so cute.
Ah, Walky. Proving yet again how smart you are, and what a doofus you are, all in the same conversation.
Being a little bit of a doofus can be charming.
It can. It’s how I got married.
I think Walky is doing good. The last part probably comes across to Dorothy’s dad as having a sense of humor and being down to earth, which is partly is, along with of course the gluttony.
In the Fancy-pants Lounge, with the Big Wigs and the Big Bosses.
And now we get to spend a nice long time with the non despicable people who are smart, creative, and funny even in the context of their own universe.
Instead of bigotry and violence and running away from emotional problems.
Walky has his priorities straight.
Honestly if somebody in any place is in charge of drinks and nachos, he is a person not to be ignored.
This is an absolutely beautiful use of the comic strip format. The way Walky grows gradually more comfortable with each panel makes something great out of having the moment divided into four parts. The way Walky settles a little more, both in expression and in speech, while slowly realizing that, hey, he really can just be himself, because he’s pretty awesome just the way he is. And Dorothy’s expression in the last panel shows that she agrees.
I thought Jeremiah was a bullfrog. With some mighty fine wine.
Way to impress the gf’s parents.
Someone seems smitten
Not sure if Walky is attempting a joke, or dead serious, in the last panel.
That said “Many a true word spoken in jest”…
I just assume he’s always being serious unless stated otherwise.
I love it when characters eke out a win after you’ve been given every reason to expect total failure like this. Of course, this could still all go pear-shaped in the next strip.
Kinda like Danny did with Amber and her parents?
I will be so sad when they break up.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a party or sporting event or whatever: Whoever brings the food and drinks are the most important people.
I just noticed that last panel Jeremiah has no chin whatsoever.
It has retracted into his body as a sign of accepting Walky’s dominance in the pack.
Yes I’m calling it: This arc ends with Jeremiah turning out to be the missing link between great apes and men.
He is actually a Naga. He has dislocated his jaw in preparation to eat Walky.
Dorothy is so in lurrrve, it’s so cute, I can’t deal. I can’t deal with this couple, they are so cute. All I want for them is love and rainbows and cupcakes and nachos.
Oh my god, Dorothy’s face.
She’s gonna eat all the caramel later.
That went so well he’s probably gonna start talking about poop in a page or two.
Ahahahahahaha!!!! That’s the best prediction ever!
And Dorothy’s parents will like him even more.
I like how he was freaking out about them being all fancy and then all of a sudden it turns out he’s the one with connections to a dean and a congresswoman.
Potential scenario: Walky gets so relaxed he starts talking about how cool and high class Dorothy’s parents are, thus making them uncomfortable.
Everyone’s said it already but Dorothy’s faaaaace. He’s showing her parents the guy she loves, putting his best sneaker-clad foot forward.
Awwwh, Dorothy’s pride face. I wish I had a girl like Dorothy. ^_^
That blush. *Nosebleed has commerced, please get to the doctor before you are out of blood*
Is Walky conscious of the fact that he just applied Maslow’s hierarchy of needs? More people should do that in society, place greater importance on less prolific professions.
Classic Walky; nice recovery. He’s sure to impress.
There’s something really awesome with Dorothy’s dad’s chin and small smile. I don’t know what.
He looks like a super nice benevolent frog-uncle.
With the poll I feel worse about voteing to see ambers parents than Joyce s
There are *no* wigs in the fancy-pants lounge!
Hey guys I bought like five pounds of habanero peppers and two pounds of dijon mustard and ginger and garlic and stuff and made a gallon of super-hot trinidad-style hot sauce and you would’t believe how good it tastes on nachos!
I want to be your friend and come over to your house and eat these delicious nachos with you.
Sounds good, but if you come over to my place, after eating that you aren’t allowed to use my bathroom.
That last panel look is adorable! “There we go, that’s the Walky I wanted you to be!” That’s what it says to me.
Free nachos and Pepsi? Yeah, this guy’s priorities check out.
Jeremiah looks a lot like Joshua to me (except for the eyes). Wondering what would Ethan do, if met him.
Walky, I like man with right priorities. And apparently so does Dorothy.
Coincidentally enough, due to Walky’s remark, Cliff quit his job later that day. 30 years later, Dorothy is defeated during her first presidential run by a Senator from Indiana with the first name of Cliff who runs on a platform of providing free nachos and Pepsi for ALL sport event goers. He wins in a landslide.
Congratulations, Walky. You are scoring all of the points.
Walky wins the fancy-pants lounge.
I predict Riley will feature in the next strip.
DAMN Walky that is SMOOTH.
wow! look at her. she’s falling in love
If I even find myself in a situation like this, I’ll be sure to use that joke. Even though I’m pretty sure Walky is being serious.
And what happens to Cliff?
It’s a Cliff-hanger!
