so shut up
I like how she has to check, too, like she forgot
I think that’s just Willis reminding everyone that she doesn’t wear feet.
You meant shoes right, feet ain’t usually detachable after all.
I think you broke googer…..
Maybe he/she/it CAME broken. Like certain games I may or may not mention.
Like Karate Kid, or Action 52? Wizard of Oz? Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde?
like nhl 14
Like Golden Compass for the DS?
You can’t play through the tutorial because the glitch is IN the tutorial.
You do know nobody will ever let that go, right/
It could also be a reference to Buffalo Bill making shoes.
Nope, nope, I prefer GoogerGeiger’s version. Sierra seems like she wouldn’t like to wear feet, if it was an option, anyway.
I’m pretty sure you meant socks. This can only end in sex or extreme awkwardness
Well, if it is any consolation, if you had been talking about a certain mechanical person in another, closely related comic, you would have been correct.
I believe you meant to say, “Put a sock in it”
Sock it to me!
TOTALLY CALLED IT.
This sock, is no liar. Joe would be admonished, but he’s busy working it.
Ahahahaha, Joe. Of course you always carry a spare.
Yes, but you don’t want to know where he keeps that sock.
The comments are getting prophetic
…not to mention pornographic.
I read that as “prophylactic”
I am guilty of that as well
I can ship it.
That implies there is something you can’t.
Blaine and Mary
Ship it mother fucker! I dare you! I double dare you!
You avatar and username make this all the better. Besides that would interfere with most people’s OTP of BlainexTruck
Or Blaine/Bullet. Or Blaine/Gallon of acid.
I read the first one as Blaine/Buttlet. I’ve been watching too much Game Grumps lately.
Truck: Senpai Blaine!
Blaine: Oh fu-
Blaine: *abuses loved ones*
I know something even worse. Blaine/Amber/Faz! Try to top me there!
OH GOD THE PAIN!
Well, the worse thing I can think off that could top that is laundry list of crimes against humanity.
Any combination involving Faz getting spitroasted has to be worse than this.
It’s called a strap-on.
Well, if you’re going to bring that up, why not substitute a fist attachment?
Blaine and Danny, with Amber walking in on them.
I can top that. BatmanXRobin, except Faz is Robin… Faz in tights!
He’s Faz in tiiiiiiiiiights!
He roams around the forest looking for physical contact with a lady!
“That was off-tempo…”
But, do you triple dog dare him? Huh? Do you?
What is wrong with you?
Well, I.. I kill people and I eat hands… that’s… that’s two things…
Well, then. Now i just picture Joe lying in wait, every day.
Like a cockodile.
Thanks to this chain of comments, I now know where the spare sock is kept.
I see what you did there.
Like some kind of sex ninja.
Your pun-fu is strong. Like the tea in Boston Harbor!
Boston Red Sox Ninja
Would not tea dumped in a harbor become weak, in most settings? Especially the historical setting we are referencing where they certainly did not have enough tea in Boston to make Boston harbor completely tea.
inb4 special pornographic spinoff adventure, “Joe and Sierra Perform a Sex”
“And for an Umpteenth Time it’s Pretty Much Exactly What You’d Expect”
JASPASAFTUTIEWYE, if you want to keep things simple.
More like “Joe and Sierra Perform a Sox”
Hope they gave Sierra a few of those Amazi-condoms.
“It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.”
Pretty sure you don’t need one of those if you go alone.
It’d make clean up easier for a dude.
You mean you want the mess?
But if you don’t remain alone (like in this morning’s comic), then they might be needed.
I think there were only two of them, and I’m sure Dorothy and Walker have used them up already. Paging Roz DeSanto!!
It’d be funny if Dorothy came out in a towel and took the whole box of them.
As though Joe doesn’t already have a roll of condoms at hand. He probably buys them in bulk.
Knowing Joe, he almost certainly carries them around on his person at all times.
I ship it.
Now here’s a ship that never even occurred to me.
Then you haven’t been trying!
The mind of the shipper: Everything is shippable….even the ones that doesn’t make sense.
Especially the ones that don’t make sense.
Yeah, especially that.
We call those crack ships.
Crack a bottle of champagne against any ship and she’ll be setting sail!
Crack like cocaine.
You can quit anytime you want.
Go, monkey, go!
GO NINJA GO NINJA GO
GO GO POWER RANGERS
Go Go Bravo!
Mach a Go Go Go!
Go, Speed Racer. Go, Speed Racer. Go, Speed Racer, goooo…
Thunderbirds are go!
HENSHIN A GO-GO, BABY!
Aww. I want to see more of Sierra. She’s like Dina, but more outwardly pleasant and just generally sweet.
>outwardly pleasant and just generally sweet.
Sierra is nice, but gotta disagree with that.
Why exactly? I disagree with you disagreeing.
He probably forgot to include the “more”; I interpret his post as a defense against the implication of a pleasantness and sweetness deficiency in Dina.
Comment from the far future for archive trawlers! Yes, I am pretty sure that is what I meant at the time.
Yeah, Sierra is a total sweetheart. She just got kicked out the room and the first thing is does is try to ensure Dorothy and Walky have privacy. You’re good people, Sierra.
She’s more socially competent. She’s still weird, but weird within somewhat ‘normal’ boundaries.
Sierra’s cute. I nominate her for the next Slipshine!
Yeah, next will be from Shortpacked!, sue me.
So whoja just finish fucking, Joe?
I mean that’s WAY too fucking convenient, even for you.
*starts playing porn music
Let’s just make it a general rule that every time Joe is around, the instrumental version of Careless Whisper is playing in the background.
Well, I am gonna remember this one. Joe gets a theme song.
Joe is the Duke Devlin of this series.
Personally I think The Ding Dong Song suits Joe better.
Nah….I equate that song to a Douchequake.
I always hear an instrumental version of Wild Cherry’s “Play That Funky Music” when Joe walks on panel.
Now that right there is some classic Joe-in’ music!
Well, looks like Sierra is about to get…Joe’d
It’s Joe…what else I can expect?
“How often I find myself drawn here.”
*Joe and Sierra look at us.*
Joe is drawn there as often as Willis draws him there, natch.
I see what you did there, Plas.
Wonder Wig did the same thing :3
Now I want to see a DoA version of “Duck Amuck.”
Yes, I saw that too. I snurked.
Well played Willis and well caught Wonder Wig!
JOE ROSENTHAL IS…
Ah! The comments section called it yesterday!
I bet Yotomoe wishes he was Joe right about now..
Everyone wishes that they are Joe right now.
Actually..I’m glad I’m not.
Sure, it’d be nice to have sex w/o going a decade at a time between events but I’m not sold being an ass the rest of the time would be worth it.
Oh wait… not a spoiler, but aren’t they uh… “soiling” Sierras bunk?
No. Dorothy has her own.
You seem to choose the most random posts to respond to, but still, good to know that they’re considerate of roommate boundaries etc.
He just goes where he feels needed.
Yup, he is the Littlest Hobo of webcomic artists.
(Holy obscure reference Batman!)
“Soiling” has the wrong implications. I would have gone with “seasoning”.
Or even “caramelising”.
I’d go with the bedroom tango.
Hunh, I didn’t see that coming.
That’s what she said.
You know Danny is gonna be busy for a while….
Yeah, being around Blaine warps time.
I hope he gets a clue. His biggest problem is that he doesn’t trust his own judgement. For example, listening to Billie about Sal being Amazi-Girl and trusting Blaine despite him being really suspicious.
Blaine’s suspicious to US. To Danny, he’s some dad.
Not to mention that Danny is kind of an idiot on a good day.
I just realized I phrased that wrong.
“The day Blaine graced your dorm, it was the worst day of your life… To Danny, Blaine was a dad.”
“This doesn’t feel right, I don’t think we should do this”.
“It’ll be fine”.
“Good point, that makes sense. Let’s do this”.
“This doesn’t feel right. I don’t think we should do this.”
“It was your idea. You shouldn’t leave things unfinished. It’s not a good character trait.”
“I… Guess your right.”
“This doesn’t feel right, I don’t think we should do this”
Oh Sierra, even I’m not that naive. And I’m the very definition of naivete.
Sierra may be completely in on Joes lie, and just playing along.
I like to think so, she seems like the sorta person who would do that ^^
I bet she thinks Joe will have sex with her if she plays her cards right. And she is probably correct. Poor naive Sierra. *shakes head*
Um. Why wouldn’t she think that?
Because she doesn’t realize that Joe will do so anyway.
One time I emailed Fred Gallagher to say I was the most sackless pushover afraid-of-girls pansy in the world and even I thought Pyro was unrealistically shy and stupid.
He took the time to write back and explain I shouldn’t fill myself in the character’s shoes. It took me years to respect him for that.
“I spelled Piro’s name wrong didn’t I? Well, how would I even know, Fred hasn’t updated Megatokyo in WHAT THE FU-”
Yea, good time to come back, it is starting to get interesting.
Alright everybody, line up your bets! Will Joe get his SOCK on with Sierra?
He’ll sock it to her!
He’s gonna sock her world!
Well, I hope he blew her socks off.
I just hope he puts a sock on HIS knob. If you know what I mean ehehehehehehe
I hope he GETS socked.
Like, as in punched.
I will thrive on his pain.
I thought he’d be getting his socks off?
Joe gets with Sierra, has no sock to let people know of it, Joe is disappoint.
I’m on my phone cuz my internet’s out so here’s the gist. I love Sierra. Joes got game! Joe, you stay away from my Sierra! I predicted the no socks thing. Seriously though, sierra’s the best. She should be the main character. That about covers it.
Willis’ next comic: It’s Sierra!
#1 comic on the web with foot fetishists!
I’D READ IT. DAILY. HOURLY.
You predicted the character who never wears socks wouldn’t have a sock?
Who hasn’t plucked low-hanging fruit before?
Most fruit pickers. The best ones are high up and in the middle.
I would imagine at some point a fruit picker would pick a low hanging fruit at some point.
YOTOMOE! LOOK AWAY! You shouldn’t have to endure watching your true love getting prepped for an attempted joeing
There’s no way that I’m the only one who groaned, expecting a votey joke about his being DRAWN there.
Thank God I’m not the only one.
Joe can wait his turn for sex after walky and Dorothy are done-Wait a minute what the hell is he doing there anyway?
He’s drawn to sex like Jason Vorhees?
Ha! that made my day
Gee, why would Joe be in the girl’s dorm…what(or who) could he have been doing…..
He was probably looking to do all of them
But isn’t the sock/towel/whatever supposed to be hung on the doorknob to let an absent roommate know something is going on *before* they try to come into the room? Since Sierra got the bum’s rush out the door, she already knows what’s going down between Dorothy and Walky so hanging a sock on the door now is unnecessary.
Yes, but Joe just really wants that sock to move past its undeserved reputation as a liar.
Actually, unless Sierra wants to guard the door full time until they’re done, the sock would serve as a signal that they haven’t come out, yet. (One presumes that Walky would notice the sock as he was leaving and remove it.)
I can tell the next Gender Studies class is gonna be a good one.
Joe refers to his condoms as ‘socks’ because they can fit a foot inside them.
Yes, but can it dent metal?
Aluminum foil? Yes.
Aluminum can? Sometimes.
No experimentation beyond the above described w/o significant funding.
I’ll leave it to others to write the research grant proposal.
If the next Slipshine-exclusive comic by Willis were to involve Sierra, I would be inclined to buy a subscription for that one as well.
Joe, go away. Please.
Joe, you creepy asshole.
I still think a sock on the door is a bad idea with Ruth as the RA. No one likely visits Dorothy and Sierra anyway aside from Joyce, and she wouldn’t have a clue what it meant. Ruth on the other hand probably patrols the hall often. A simple locked door seems like their safest bet.
Are you saying Sierra doesn’t have any friends, other than Dorothy?
On the one hand she logically does. On the other hand no other existing major or minor characters appear to be friends with her. If anyone was going to open that door it’d likely be Ruth or Joyce for drama reasons, it probably wouldn’t be a new minor character friend of Sierra. If the door isn’t locked already only Ruth would have a key anyway.
If Joyce opened the door, that would make things SO awkward.
She knows Billie at least, just not on a friends-lets-go-hang-out way. I imagine in the dorm most of the girls know each other on a name or appearance basis, especially with all the meetings Ruth forces.
There’ve been two floor meetings in the three weeks of school: One on move-in day, one as part of the fallout of Billie pulling the fire alarm. The latter was required by higher authority; the former probably was as well. Both of them were much more… efficient than any floor meeting I remember from when I was in college.
The main thing that she’s really gung-ho about is making sure everyone attends.
Does Ruth care whose getting laid?
Isn’t the sock-on-the-door thing something you do to warn your roommates? Both times we’ve seen it in this comic, the roommates did it themselves. Are they afraid they might forget if they don’t alert themselves?
Maybe they were hoping to get some sympathy sex?
I just want to say I will never be able to ever look at Dorothy the same way again, ever
Seriously? She’s been macking hard on Walky for like, half the comic. This wasn’t foreshadowed; this was inevitable.
RUN SIERRA, RUN
She won’t get far, Joe works faster than he finishes
And Sierra got Joed.
There are not enough words in the English language to describe the affection I feel for Joe.
It amuses me when something features prominently in the comments, and then the next day’s comic (written and drawn months ago) comes up and is about that SPECIFIC THING.
nearly the only time Willis is predictable
I’m surprised Joe doesn’t carry an assortment of signs with him, denoting how many women are inside, whether it’s a quickie or a marathon session, and whether anyone can join in or if it’s by invite only.
Socks with Toes = Multiple ladies.
Ankle Sock = Quickie.
Ladies’ Pantyhose = Marathon.
This is a classic Joe moment.
Oh, god, so cute…
I’m honestly interested. Given characteristics within races as I seem to see portrayed by Willis, I’m gonna guess Sierra is some type of black. (I’m guessing entirely based on how he draws Sarah’s hair and Sarah’s and Jacob’s noses). I’m also guessing Sarah has natural hair or some huge dreadlocks, consisering how she wears it.
GIVEN these guesses, I wonder if Sierra’s hair is natural or relaxed
.. I mean, there’s no way natural hair would sit that straight, unless she juat flat irons the roots but leaves the ends. Then again, she doesn’t wear shoes so I wonder if she would flat iron at all (natural hair logic).
I guess she could be texlaxed and have really loose curls. Or maybe not be black at all and I should be asleep at 2:30 AM.
I always guessed that she was some variety of Southern Asian or Southeast Asian.
Sierra is the most adorable of the characters, IMHO. Maybe I have a foot fetish.
I get a Filipino vibe for some reason. Maybe because of Malaya.
South eastern asian would make sense, I suppose, but I don’t know quite as much about their hair as I do of my own race XD
I was guessing Indonesian, or maybe ethnic Hawaiian.
Huh. The only bit of information that I derive from her hair is the fact that she only has one eye – she’s an off-center cyclops.
Well I did say guess and not know.
Yup, just ‘happened’ to be in the girls wing.
Just happened to have a sock.
Joe is cute and so is she. Sierra can’t go back in her room for awhile anyway, she may as well enjoy a little ‘Joe”.
So, did Joe inherit his sex-sensing abilities from Mr. Rosenthal, or did he pick it up on his own?
Oh my god, this is wonderful. I love this version of Joe
This versions Joe is the most Mature he’s ever been. He’s still a horndog, but he’s got this roguish charm about him now that he isn’t beating up nerds like Howard.
Yeah, he’s the good qualities without the loathsome qualities. This is a Joe I’d bone without feeling filthy afterwards, to be a little crude.
that’s why we’re all here, friend.
ok, some of us are here to set fire the horrific tar-filled boat of the s.s. danny
but no, most of us are here to be a little crude. YEAH
also 100% agreement
Now do we get a Joe/Sierra comic?
Specifically, a naughty one.
He’s gonna get laid too, isn’t he?
They’re both gonna.
“…giving socks to other people having sex. Huh. I should probably have thought this line through better.”
Joe Joe gadget….
Oh look, my favorite girl character and least favorite guy character interacting together.
Please God don’t let this go where i fear it will go.
Joe is worse than Danny, Mike and Ethan?
To me, at least. I don’t have any strong opinions for or against the three you mention, but just about everything I’ve seen Joe do made me dislike him a little more. He hasn’t done anything HUGE that I hate, but all the little things have really started to accumulate. There’s just no part of his character I really agree with.
I’m still stumped on how he managed to trump Blaine and date-rape guy. That’s an impressive level of hate right there.
I’m not really counting those two, since they’re pretty much villains, and no healthy-minded person is MEANT to find them relatable. Joe is different because I’m not supposed to dislike him, but i still do.
Yeah, it would be terrible is Sierra had a pleasant sexual experience. Absolutely terrible.
Wait, sexual experience? No no no, I’m afraid Joe will trap Sierra’s spirit in her own shrunken head to have her as his servant in the afterlife. What’re YOU thinking?
So, what you’re saying is Joe is equivalent to Satan?
What? No dude, he is clearly a dark voodoo priest. Why has no one else caught on to that yet?! It’s SO OBVIOUS, gosh!
Honestly curious. I got the distinct impression that while Walky was exploring new territories this wasn’t necessarily Dorothy’s first rodeo, and we already know about Sal and the TA as well as Joe and Roz. On the other hand, I’m certain that at the very least Joyce, Dina, Danny, and Amber are still rookies. So who else in the Dumbiverse is ‘experienced’ and who isn’t?
Distinct impression? She already told us she slept with Danny. Then Joe told us she took Danny’s virginity. Like a couple weeks ago.
It was established when Danny and Amber first met that Danny had consummated his relationship with Dorthy
I went back and found a strip when Dorothy was borrowing shoes from Danny that confirmed that as well … so we can scratch Danny from the ‘virgin’ list. It’s just that he has shown himself as so clueless I figured he was the kind of guy who wouldn’t be able to score in a cathouse with a fistful of fifties.
I’m looking for someone to sink this ship. Maybe with a baseball bat, maybe with a hockey stick.
This ship can’t sail without a little more drama and Willis never wastes a chance for drama and a long story line.
I don’t think Joe’s looking for any travel by ship. Oh, sure, while the ship is docked he might visit. Use the exercise equipment. Visit the all you can eat buffet. Enjoy the amenities… But if that ship lifts anchor. he won’t be on it. There’s just way too many other ships in this university port.
So, if Sierra is getting joe’d… that means Joe is getting sierra’ed?
And now, for something completely different.
Did I mention I love Sierra? And she doesn’t even wear glasses!
Who else but Joe?
*Cue laugh track*
Speaking of Superheroes.
He finds himself drawn there… literally in our case.
Too bad Sierra’s as celibate as Joyce.
That makes me wonder: If Joyce is a college-age Willis author avatar, how long before she’s drawing a comic about a character named “Joyce Baratheon” called “It’s Barry!” [and, years later, drawing porn]?
Is that canon?
I don’t believe anything like that’s been stated.
But you have to admit, it would be funny.
I’m sure Sierra has a lot of friends. They’re just… *gasp* outside of this dorm. I know, it’s a crazy thought.
Can’t decide if Sierra knows what’s up or not…I mean she KNOWS what’s happening in her dorm but does she know that that’s what brought Joe all the way to the Girl’s Wing
The only problem with this ship is that I can’t see any potential problem with it.
I wonder if Sierra will develop eye problems later in life from one eye always being covered by her hair. That’s got to throw of the balance and make one eye stronger than the other.
The scourge of hair-induced amblyopia. Don’t let it happen to YOU.
Not to mention the accidents and missed grabs due to the depth perception being screwed up.
never used one but then again no one really bothered me in the dorms while i was boning.
It’s all fun and games for Joe right now, but I think we all know that years down the line he’s gonna be nearly broke has he pays for child support on the 3-5 different kids he’s accidentally fathered in his quest for pussy.
something like that
Isn’t the sock to tell the roommate not to go in?
Because the roommate is Sierra.
So the whole exercise in not finding a sock also seems to not have a real point.
Joe’s hand in the last panel looks weird. I guess he’s meant to be leaning against the wall, but it also looks like he’s leaning forward to snatch Sierra away…
