If I’ve done my counting right, this is Dumbing of Age #1000.
We should throw a party. The dress code is hoodie dresses and pyjama jeans.
And don’t forget to bring some cereal.
I’m in. Cocoa Puffs good with everyone?
Not canon in this universe. Cocoa Puffs are, as well as Fruity Pebbles.
Cadbury cereal for all!!!!!
And the mcnuggets. McDonalds has a deal going on.
welp. Time to see the face of Cheese and diabetus ~
Is nobody going to make a nickel joke here?
Well I was gonna invite a few moms, but they said they’d only show up for a nickle… so yeah I’m gonna need about fifty dollars in nickles, any one wanna pitch in?
For the war, against the war, WHO CARES?
1000 comic strips.
She got it bad.
She’s hot for teacherJacob
I was a bit disappointed that it wasn’t Van Halen’s Hot For Teacher.
I clicked on the first link expecting it to be, then I came back and was pleasantly surprised.
She is so adorable today.
Well Joyce imbued those clothes with her cuteness.
One of the symptoms of Butts Disease is becoming an anime character.
When she starts calling him “Senpai,” we’ll know the disease has gone into the advanced stages….
She will run to school with toast in her mouth despite having had plenty of time to eat breakfast at home.
When Joyce annoys her, she will pull a giant hammer out of nowhere and club her. The resulting bump will be the size of a bowling ball and have an x-shaped bandage on it.
Will she almost become an expert guitar player despite never having touched one in her life?
Argh, another post where I didn’t proofread, substitute also for almost.
Start making homemade chocolates for Valentine’s Day, Sarah-chan!
Other symptoms include biting of the lower lip, prolonged fantasizing, and the extreme urge to say “Dat ass”
When she spontaneously has pink hair, then we’ll worry.
Don’t be silly, pink hair is for protagonists and cutesy types, she’s actually already got the requisite Black n’ Spiky required of the Brooding Loner with a Heart of Gold.
A 90s-early 00s anime character to be exact.
Now Cragalanch is remembering Fender’s line from Robots “GIVE ME THOSE BIG ANIME EYES”
Put a windmill in front of that girl. Solve the energy crisis.
Jacob farted when he passed her.
Aaaand that was supposed to be a response to Taigan’s comment below. I has the stoopid.
You are wonderful.
Is she supposed to be fanning herself with the book? Shouldn’t it be tilted more towards her for that? Or is something else going on here?
Maybe she’s trying to cool him off. He’s WAY too hot.
I, uh… I actually thought the eye-sparkle indicated that we had shifted to Sarah’s mental view of the world, in which she was opening her box.
I’ve heard of making your bed rock, but making your book shake is just ridiculous.
“You can’t have two black people in the same place at the same time! It’s unrealistic! It stretches credibility!”
As a black person, I will go on record saying each of us exudes a force field that does not allow us to be within 20 feet of one another.
So how does a place like Harlem even exist then… hmmmmmm?
Harlem is a myth like the Loch Ness Monster or North Dakota.
So any athletic event where there appear to be multiple black athletes within close proximity of each other is what, not to scale?
It’s actually only one black person and a bunch of white people in blackface.
Are you sure it’s not just one guy in super position? It would certainly explain the salaries, if he’s getting paid to play 10 different positions.
As a nother black person I confirm this totally realistic fact.
Having been to South Dakota, I can confirm that there is no North Dakota.
Of course. Anything above that is just Lower Canada.
Living in Canada, I can totally confirm this. Canadians are creeping southward…hence the polar vortex. Next, they’re going to force curling on everyone.
Curling, and Timbits.
Hell I welcome our new Canadian overlords and their back bacon and timbits, if they bring their health care system too.
People related to each other are an exception, I guess? There were African twins in my class in comprehensive school – and they seemed to be perfectly fine with standing next to each other.
As soon as they’re born, the universe starts expanding just a little faster to make an acceptable distance between them. Clearly.
It was an optical illusion. You were really dealing with one person and a cleverly-placed series of mirrors.
When a black woman gives birth, the baby’s repulsion field causes it to be launched out of the vagina at mach 3. This is how they win wars: the babyzooka is unstoppable.
My mental picture after reading this was both hilarious and horrifying. Congratulations.
Do these pictures come automatically or do you will yourself to imagine them?
My mind has this unfortunate tendency to take off on the strangest tangents. I have no control over it.
Which would explain why Sal is black and Walky is generic beige.
Congratulations. Your conversation managed to make my mom laugh several times. Awesome job XD (not being sarcastic)
Aw lordy! Goodness gracious! Mercy. Poor gal’s gettin’ the VAPORS.
She really needs to stop wearing the whale bone girdle then.
Feelin hot hot hot!
Perfect Gravatar is perfect.
Those eyes are getting all big and shiny and very….nano desu….
I think Sarah is turning into an anime character.
(I think she’s turning Japanese, I think she’s turning Japanese, I really think so, think so, think so…)
No spit, 1000 strips?! Wow, where’d the time go?
Sarah has turned into Book 1 Walky
Tomorrow: That book goes flying at Jacob’s head.
In a few years she’ll be pointing her weenus at the ceiling in Jacob’s room, as well as itself.
it seems like just yesterday we were in the 900s. Bravo, Willis!
Ladies and Gentlemen, the “misanthropic” Sarah Clinton.
I like how Sarah has the ♥ in her eyes in the last two panels.
That doesn’t look like a heart to me… then again I can’t draw hearts.
I used the Web browser zooming technology to get a close up of her eyes.
Technology is a wonderful thing.
She not going to past this class( someone ask why?)
Because she wants the D, I know bad taste but still come on
D as in 8====D ?
I was thinking more like D as in 8==D……………….that joke would have Been funnier if it was directed at Joe instead, I have nothing against Jacob.
D is totally a passing grade at most schools tho.
But good joke otherwise xD
It’s like a passing grade in the same way that a pinto is a racecar. You may cross the finish line, but you’re not going to get the prize you’re going for.
Pintos used to clean house in SCCA Showroom Stock racing before they aged out. You have to remember how bad everything else was back then for a comparison. Pintos are crap by today’s standards but aside from the gas tank problem they were yards better than what was being sold by other car makers. Remember the Vega and its self-destructing engine?
When I was a teenager I wanted a Pacer in the worst way. Then I found out that was the only way they came.
Did Sarah just turn into an anime character?
Is that a crack I see on Sarah’s fortress wall?
Jacob’s mounting an offensive.
Or more accurately, she wants him to “mount her defences”.
You beat Cragalanch to the joke, Plasma
I’m hard to beat when to cums to making hard ass puns. ^_^
Cragalanch won’t fall behind, ever again
1000. 900 more than 100.
Anyone know how many in-universe days it’s been? I wanna figure out how many strips take place every Dumbiverse hour.
I say about two months and a week.
Not precise enough! This is very important to me for the next couple minutes!
Four weeks, I think. That’s what Mike said last week.
It’s the beginning of the fourth week.
Right! So that averages out to about 1.5 strips per hour in-universe. Pretty crazy.
That’s actually about how long it takes me to draw them.
You mean we could be having near real time updates if someone were to chain you to the tablet and drawing table? Please don’t stoke my evil thoughts like that…
Now I want to have a little clock down in the corner of each strip that tells the time like that clock on an episode of 24. And I want each sec to make a loud sound effect like the 24 clock does.
wait, isn’t it more like 1.9?
1000 strips, about 22*24 hours…
That’s what he said (seriously) although I do think / feel that it appears as if more time had passed, if you look at the development of characters (Joyce, Ethan, Amber, Danny) and their relationships (Dorothy / Walky, Ruth / Billie)
So from the Shortpacked update, it seems Jacob might become a full-time DoA character now?
*sexy sax music plays*
When I read that I just imagined “Careless whisperer”
Do he got the booty?
Aw, not so much as a glance. Sorry, Sarah.
I’m glad I checked the Shortpacked! hovertext before I made the joke I was gonna make here.
Since they have the same class, did she notice Jacob earlier?
I am counting 995 strips with this one, but maybe I missed a couple, or five.
Ok, I recounted and I’ve got 987, hm.
how did you count??
Maybe Willis included the Walky Performs A Sex comics in the totals.
If you click “Archive” and then the word “comic”, which is the second word on the new screen, it says there are 988.
I’ve got that many.
Congrats on doing 35.7 comics per in-universe day for 1274 real days since you started DOA!
(yes I did the math)
He didn’t even look at her…. damn
It sort looks like it. It’s hard to tell from the perspective, but the first time I saw it I thought the eye was ever so glancing at her. It’s sort off center.
Nope. Straight ahead, like a good driver
As a professional driver, looking straight ahead most of the time is a habit I constantly battle. Safety requires constant eye and head movement. Two seconds is the maximum recommended time to look any one direction. This is especially hard when an attractive butt is in view. GLANCE at the pedestrian’s ass, do not stare!
I’m shocked that Jacob isn’t wearing a hoodie dress.
He wants to be a lawyer so maybe he wants to project a less casual image.
I bet Walky’s wearing a hoodie dress…
You might be right according to the last panel, top left corner.
Assuming Walky developed boobs and a different hairstyle, anyway.
I’ll call that the same hairstyle, and assume he borrowed Dorothy’s boobs, for the sake of the fantasy. Or, Willis did a sexism and when he said that “everybody but Sara wears a hoodie dress”, tacitly implying that non-women are non-people.
DO HE GOT THE BOOTY? HE DOOOOOOOO!
1,000 really!?! Wow, that’s crazy! And impressive how you lined up the two Jacob strips in DoA and Shortpacked. Congrats on the big milestone!!!
Is that…is that a happy Sarah?
I don’t understand anything anymore. Next up it’ll be miserable atheist Joyce, fundie Dorothy, and emotionally stable Amber.
And everyone will be wearing goatees.
Also, don’t tell me Jeph infected you. The last thing the CDC needs is an other Butts disease epidemic.
so many people think butts disease came from jeph and not me
I always thought it was the yelling bird that started it.
So you’re like Typhoid Mary, she had the disease first but the symtoms only really showed up on the others she infected.
So typhoid willy then?
I want Sarah to have him, but I want Ethan to have him more.
I have to say, I’ve been thinking the same thing.
And with this landmark strip, Butts Disease is now officially Dumbiverse canon. Willis, you magnificent bastard.
Congratulations, Mr. Willis!
You’ve worked hard on this comic, and man had it payed off.
I vote you take a night or two vacation off to celebrate.
Sarah’s thoughts in panel 3: “I like big butts and I cannot lie.”
1000 comics, you are a machine!
She fanning herself or “shaking” things like Baby Cakes (from China, IL)
1000. Congratulations Mr. Willis.
North Dakota? Ok then.
Yup, he is definately one hot dude, Sarah has good taste.
The 1000th comic? Well happy birthday to me!
Hubba Hubba, weet papa !
Next strip, Sarah clubs Jacob on the head and drags him back to her closet.
I love how her mouth disappears, leaving only the Angle of Arousal.
Butts Disease for everyone!
And Hoodie Dresses!
They seem to go together
Congrats on the big 1000, Willis!
I love this strip omfg. So cute.
And congrats on the 1000!
is she trying to fan her scent at him or something?
If she is, it ain’t working. I see a big steaming pile of disappointment in her future.
She’s trying to cool herself down.
Double Jacob today!
Congrats, Dave! 1000 of anything is quite an accomplishment–even if it’s only moved things along through September of the school year!
In a few years we will be dealing with snow for about a decade afterwards.
1000 strips! Woo!
They grow up so fast; it only seems like a few weeks since they left for college…
Hmm, odd. I only count 989 strips.
why still the bandanna thingy
Congrats on the 1000 strip milestone . . . again.
Her thoughts around panel four: http://media0.giphy.com/media/zOax5QV5VQr8k/giphy.gif
Jubilations and applausements!
On another note, I’m a bit sad to learn that there won’t be a DoA Hooper, but the mental image of him teaching Gender Studies and starting every class by yelling “HOT HOT SEXXENGS!” makes up for it ten times over.
congrats on 1000
Know that feeling mmphh!
Somehow this reminded me of this song
