Y’know, just use that sexy sexy man-body once or twice
No reason, just sexy is all
I don’t see nothing wrong with a little bump and grind
Maybe once or twice
Oh, the music in my head.
Bow chicka wow wow
AND THE GIRL IN FRONT IS WAVIN’ HER CABOOSE. YOU SNEEZE ACHOO SHE CALLS YOU OUT IN FRONT. I KNOW YOU HEAR THAT BASS, BUMPIN’ IN MAH TRUNK.
and we’ll do the kind of things that only Prince would sing about…
I am hugely entertained by the perfect Gravatars here…
Do a little dance, make a little love
Get down tonight, get down tonight
That’s the wrong face.
You can really feel the love in the air.
And here I though it was the bean burritos.
“I’m just a prom night dumpster baby”
Though I don’t think Joyce was talking about that.
Dammit, i was thinking the same thing! Lol
She will find the classiest Dumpster in Indiana.
Nothing quite like 5 star dumpster diving for a first date.
Do we switch to Michelin stars if the dumpster’s behind a restaurant?
“Oooh this one’s called Wasted Gold and it’s the only dumpster in Indiana to be made of solid gold… It costs a bit much to use though, but they have child services available on stand-by at all times”
“Getchyer own dumpster, ya perv!”
Yes, you are wise in the ways of the world.
Hook them up, respect the sock on the door, and let the woman who has helped you and saved you from rape get a moment of happiness.
Let your sister get her freak on!
If Joyce continues to try to hook them up after this strip, it’ll mean she’s knowingly encouraging premarital hanky-panky.
That’s why she’s looking up chapels, so they can get married before getting any hanky-panky on.
Perfect icon if you would have spoken of damnation and hellfire.
Perfect icon if you had focused on the “hanky-panky” part of the comment rather than the avatar.
=And who the hell is my avatar?! What is twitchy girl’s name?? >.<
Is it one of the DeSantos?
Never mind, it’s apparently Mary, that girl who never gets a storyline/backstory in either DoA or It’s Walky. And in It’s Walky she looks just like Joyce, which is so confusing.
God, I hate her. OTOH it makes the twitchiness of my avatar work. o.o
I don’t want you to be tru~u~ue/
I Just Wanna Make/
Lo~o~o~ove To You!
Or thrice maybe! No need to limit oneself in life! :3
Oh, Joyce. I’d say never change, but… I really want you to change.
Please let the title of this book be “Ruinous mistakes in a motel dumpster”. That has to be the name of SOMETHING.
I’m sure its the name of lots of things people are unwilling to mention again
I’m sure it’s the name of a spice girls cover band.
…I think we have a winner.
It has to be the full sentence, so wow, that’d be an even longer title than book 2.
Maybe each book could have a longer title? XD
Break the record with every book. By book 20, the title of the book will be the complete text of the book, including forward and copyright page.
This could start a trend every books name must be longer than the last!
Hey, it’s that or “Heretofore Undiscovered Nucleobases Which Help Spell Out ‘FUCK ME’”, and one of those would need censoring.
Which is to say, this strip is potential title gold.
I fail to see the problem with this.
WOW Google’s really is handy. ^_^
I can vouch for that! Quite useful in searching for furry po..
Furry pouches? Why you want furry pouches, you want to make a novelty purse or something?
Right…a novelty purse… that’s what I…
King Mabel has to keep his girlish figure at a lithe 500 lbs.
Thank you for noticing. I recently started eating a light 2nd lunch and cut down on my 2 a.m. dinner.
But not sacrifcing second breakfast!
Oh, heavens no! Second breakfast is the second most important meal of the day!
Ah KingMabel, I worry about you sometimes…
Hmm I wonder if look at the same…. furry pouches… websites.
What is this fascination with marsupials?
I don’t use google to look up ….. “Cake recipes” I use sites like furaffinity to avoid the “cake” haters
The Hilton Chicago Oak Brook Suites, in Chicago, is Google Maps top (and only) hit for “ruinous mistakes in a motel dumpster near Indiana University”.
… I feel like I should be damning Willis for inspiring me to enter this into Google and thus have all future searches of mine weighted forever by this one.
Oh my god
I drive past that hotel on a weekly basis
That is AMAZING
…if you know what I mean.
Not sure of the reference but it sounds kinky enough.
Having some hey-hey!
Horizontal Monster Mash!
The beast with two backs!
Having me some of that ol’ jelly roll.
Joyce is gettin pretty liberal with that scant inch of cleavage. Next; dogs and cats, living together.
Also, she’s at least willing to allow for the encounter. Still highly judgmental about it, mind you, but she’s not freaking out and trying to prevent it.
O M G, she is evolving [homealoneface]
I already have cats and dogs living together! It’s cute when they fall asleep snuggled up together.
Also the fact that Joyce has reffered to herself and Sarah as sisters has now made this one of the best comics ever.
Not just said it but Sarah did not deny it. They are now sisters officially forever! When they get out of school they’ll move in with Dorothy and live in a big house with all their friends forever and own all the Skittles.
And they’ll steal the auto-tuner from the Glee kids.
DNA can’t spell out “FUCK ME”. It can spell “CAT” or “TAG”. Or “AT AT.”
Yes, that’s what Jacob’s DNA says. That he is an AT-AT walker, assaulting the rebel base that is Sarah’s heart.
Maybe in hex code?
for fuck’s sake did you even read sarah’s sentence god dammit
You might need to explain, not all of us have had advanced education you know.
You mean high school biology?
I’m willing to accept that Jacob may be some sort of mutant who possesses RNA instead of DNA and therefore has Uracil instead of Thymine. That accounts for U and C, but means no T.
So we have AGCU and FMEK? Then, considering the length of genetic material, statistically it must also say “MAKE ME CUM MEEK GEEK” somewhere in there.
So maybe Ethan has a shot with him after all.
HOW DO YOU KEEP MISSING THE TWO LARGEST WORDS IN THE DAMN SENTENCE
I don’t! The undiscovered ones must be the F, M, E, and K!
WHY ARE YOU RUINING THIS BEAUTIFUL PUNCHLINE
This and my Facebook feed prove that Doctor Who is why we can’t have nice things.
SCIENCE IS FOR RUINING THINGS! LIKE UNICORNS!
SCIENCE CAN BUILD ROBOT UNICORNS THAT FIRE RAINBOW DEATH RAYS!
Now Mr. Doctor, let’s not say anything that someone could regret… let’s just keep this real and not delve into touchy topics.. like science… and friendship…
Heretofore Undiscovered Nucleobases have been overshadowed my the well know but easily forgotten penchant for pedantry and willful glee in breaking things exhibited by a ubiquitous sociopathic minority in the online comment community.
I envisioned Willis standing above his computer hands wildly flailing about while screaming this.
That was at least as funny as the admittedly quite funny punchlines.
Relax, those readers can still enjoy 4 out of 5 punchlines!
Actually, there are minor, theoretical “bases” for M and F that don’t appear in nature because they have no complement.
Are there also ones for potassium and the speed of light?
Because they ARE the largest words and our eyes just glaze over when we hit them. You have to remember that most of your readers are Walky. Sure, we COULD apply ourselves and actually make sense of what it means. But we don’t.
Also, not a single language in Google Translate renders “fuck” into a word consisting entirely of As, Gs, Cs, and Ts. Even worse, fuck in Hungarian is “Fasz”. That’s entirely too close for comfort.
That’s what’s wrong with him.
You have to remember that most of your readers are Walky.
Hey, speak for yourself!
It can spell “Gataca” which is a nice movie to watch when you need background sound
Truly you are the greatest poet of love sonnets of our generation.
Have you analyzed Jacob’s DNA? Maybe Willis has been lying to us all along about the lack of sci-fi in this universe, and he’s actually the vanguard for an alien invasion. A sexy, sexy alien invasion.
And do you, for one, welcom our “sexy, sexy” alien overlords ?
Flouramine, Uracil, Cytosine, Kerosene, Mysterybase, Everybodymakeloveum. Some of the nucleobases are heretofore undiscovered.
Book 3: “Ruinous Mistakes in a Motel Dumpster” MAKE IT HAPPEN
[despite the genericide of "dumpster"]
shit I mean book 4
dammit I can read
I kind of love them together. Not in a romantic sense, just in a “I want them to spend holidays together and godmother each other’s children and possibly work together but that’s not a deal-breaker” sort of way.
I want them to be sisters until they die.
SisTP. (I’d say BroTP, but given the strip, it seemed appropriate to adjust for gender)
The phrase “I want you to want me” comes to mind.
Sure we know what you want, but what do you need?
Do you even know what you love or beg?
I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want!
So tell me what you want, what you really really want!
Needing is one thing – but getting’s another.
So, someone is a Cheap Trick?
Ruinous mistakes in a motel dumpster with Sarah sounds pretty damn good to me
I would totally make repeat mistakes of the ruinous kind with Sarah, even IF it involves a motel dumpster.
I think it sounds like something out of Warhammer 40k.
They both pose a few valid points. I say Joyce wins just because of how ADORABLE SHE IS#
did joyce turn into moneky master in that last pannel or is it just me?
DNA – Dat nice arse (I’m assuming Jacob’s nice.)
*Jacob’s bum is nice. Curse these errors.
I counted at least 7 punch lines…
Could you list them chronologically?
Is anyone else surprised that Joyce didn’t react to Sarah’s use of the word “Fuck?” Is it just me? I’d be sure that would get a reaction.
Then again, it has been a few months, right? Maybe she’s past that.
Like I said, I’m impressed she’s not covering her ears with her hands and screaming “Premarital hanky-panky!”
Her virgin ears have been tainted!!! QUARANTINE!!!QUARANTINE!!!
This ain’t your Roomies! Joyce.
The f-word is not as dreaded as the a-word.
Yes, Joyce’s fear of applesauce is well-documented.
What if both were used in a declarative sentence stating that one desires to f-word someone’s a-word?
It’s the beginning of week 4.
I take it as Joyce’s excitement about a potential new couple forming.
They are roommates, her ears are probably acclimatized to that by now.
Look at Joyce’s expression in that final panel.
Look at it. THIS, I COMMAND!
So many punchlines, and all of them are golden. These two make the best character combo.
Also, am I the only one who dawwed at Joyce’s Big Sis Lil Sis comment?
Naw… I had the cold realization that Joyce didn’t suffer any amnesia from getting roofied… poor girl is just bottling it all up.
Yeah, I also thought it was weird Joyce used that exact phrase. I can’t think where else she would’ve gotten it from, and I don’t believe in coincidences in well-written fiction.
I’m not going to do an archive dive, but I’m sure Joyce has mentioned wanting a sister.
Now about Saturday’s Powerball numbers, or Fridays MegaMillions . . .
I am suddenly aware that, when Joyce said this, she already had a sister and didn’t know it.
I’d argue that she legitimately did get a sister the moment Jocelyne made herself known.
She hasn’t made herself known though.
She made herself known to us, though, which is more than enough for me. <3
Hoping when she makes herself known to Joyce, she’ll be happy about it. (Figuring that it’ll be after Joyce graduated college. by then she’ll be unfazed by the idea.)
The same Joyce who asked if the pastor’s son was okay?
Even Joyce is smart/experienced enough to realize acting like she remembered nothing would be the better deception.
I think Joyce’s pouty face in the last panel needs to be a gravatar. All in favor?
Cragalanch is in full agreement
Whatever happened to “leave me alone, I’m only here to study, I wish more people took their time in college more seriously”?
Jacob’s nucleobases happened.
Sarah is tired of Joyce making “Vroom Vroom” noises when playing with her toys.
Sarah has bonded with Joyce and to a lesser extent Joyce’s friends. She has a social life and it’s not disrupting her studying. Because she’s Joyce’s Big Sister.
“Everybody needs a place to rest
Everybody wants to have a home
Don’t make no difference what nobody says
Aint nobody like to be alone”
Panel two is basically the best panel ever. Never have I heard a more powerful expression of physical attraction. Poetry.
Great phrasing, combined with Sarah BITING HER LIP in ferocious lust. I mean, DAMN.
Yeah, I love it when girls bleed on me… from the mouth… not. What is WRONG with you.
I can’t help envisioning this as an actual conversation between Jacob and Joe.
I dig it.
Sarah: “I’m not looking for Mr. Right, I’m looking for Mr. Right Now.”
“I’m not looking for a person to spend my life with, I’m looking for a person to spend a night or two with.”
or a “hook up” as is described by today’s urban youth
I was really loooking forward to a Dina/DNA joke.
Well, with those heretofore undiscovered nucleobases, her DNA does spell out “Clever Girl”
That was not in the PLN.
Sarah reminds me of a specific person that I know. She feels incredibly real.
Ruinous Mistakes in a Motel Dumpster dot tumblr dot com
“Ruinous Mistakes in a Motel Dumpster” for 500, Alex.
What is a goat, two hundred pounds of crisco and a dozen midgets?
Wow, Sarah, don’t settle for a dumpster. Insist on a glass hotel elevator at least.
It refers to a disposed fetus. Or maybe the original story was a killed baby.
Either way, Joyce is not referring to sex, but the possible ruinous effects.
Joyce would be brought up to think birth control and abortion are unthinkable sins, of course and sex is only for procreation.
I think Sarah is well capable of launching Joyce down the hall if she wants some privacy. Billie, Sal, and Dorothy can explain the sanctity of the sock. Joe would have an entire discourse.
Forgotten the significance. Although, now that you remind me, I think it was a killed baby.
You were right the first time.
Meanwhile back in the cafeteria Amber continues to struggle mightily against the Dark Hado while Ethan talks about how he was just trying to spite her, and isn’t “very” seriously considering his parent’s suggestion to have lots of sex with Joyce.
Wow, Sarah’s revealing a lot to Joyce.
Not as much as she wants to reveal to Jacob.
“DNA”…”dumpsters”…there’s a dirty joke here just waiting to be written.
Congratulations! You’ve found one of the 5 minimum that Willis mentioned in the hover text. It only gets harder from here…
This made me smile. Good on you, Willis.
Joyce, don’t ruin this.
“Big Sis” “Lil’ Sis” is amazingly cute.
Oh Sarah. You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me haaaappppyyyy when skies are grey ~
Hahahaha, Sarah is totally uncowed by Joyce’s earnestness. “Yeah, that’s actually fine”
I need to invest in some genetic engineering. For… Science…. Yes, science…
**totally wants the “FUCK ME” DNA
science has shown that saliva contains several chemicals that cause arousal in opposite genders …so there’s a start
So you’re saying… I need to spit on everyone?
The fact that you’re alive is more than enough evidence that your DNA has said “fuck me” millions of times already.
Pouty face Joyce!
Wow, Sarah’s got it BAAAAD!!!
You made me remember a song.
You shall suffer through this with me.
Iiiiiiii got it bad. And that ain’t gooood.
See, I got that song in the context of Oz. It’s been seared into my subconscious where it will burn until I die.
now I tell you …………that is the sweetest interaction I have yet to see in this series ……………………….
Lil Sis and Big Sis would be great costarring in a buddy cop show.
We already know which one would be the bad cop / good cop. And Sarah’s bat would be great for an “off the book” interrogation. She’d get results damnit !
The best part is that Sarah is probably aware of the fact that Joyce isn’t joking.
Nice that your avatar is someone getting beat up as you say that
Your plain speech style shames your avatar.
How can I obtain this DNA? Is there a serum? Because I don’t want to go through the rigmarole of sperm-jacking someone again.
Joyce was angry until Sarah invited her to the ¨date¨.
In the last panel Joyce’s collar flips itself up without reason. From this I conclude her clothes are sentient.
They’re possessed by Satan. Why do you think that she’s been rebelling against her parents?
I think she flipped it with her hair.
Love Sarah’s desperate expression on panel 2.
WAIT A GODDAMN MINUTE how does Joyce remember to call Sarah “Big Sis”? Wasn’t she supposed to be so ruffeed up that she couldn’t remember the conversa-
Awww…she did remember that last conversation.
So these t-rex heels made me think of Dina.
How are you always the last comment?! REVEAL YOUR SECRETS TO MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
So, I see this Sarah has the same libido as the one in Roomies, just a different target.
Ok. So Amber has a hamburger, or some other kind of burger veggie, chicken ect. Dina and Riley have cereal. Jacob had an apple with his meal or maybe an apple for his meal. What was the yellow mush Ethan has. Pudding? Extra buttery mashed potatos? It’s very important.
I comment now because I’m assuming this food part of the story is coming to an end so I can reflect on the dishes.
Does anyone know any other good comics to read? I’ve already read all the current strips from Gunnerkrigg Court, Go Get a Roomie, Tripping Over You, and, Of course, this one…. I NEED SOMETHING TO OCCUPY MY TIME?! ANYONE WANNA HELP ME?!
