Nice cover up, there, Blaine.
“I wasn’t beat up by a girl! It was ninjas! Lots of ninjas! And I think Chuck Norris was leading them! Even then I would have won, but Mr. T sucker punched me from behind!”
Blaine, such a pathetic excuse for a human being that his suffering can STILL be a source of undiluted joy, even when he’s not in the room and just being casually mentioned by two people who have no idea who he is.
HA! Yes! So much this!
Nail on the head there, T.
The word for the day is “schadenfreude”. Can you say that, boys and girls?
Wie denn wohl nicht?
Scheinbar bin ich nicht der einzige hier.
Vielicht nicht, aber mein deutsch ist viel schlecht.
Well, as they say in Germany: “Deutsche Sprache, schwere Sprache.”
Like straight A students getting Bs?
Or exes getting STDs?
Watching tourists reading maps?
I think Dumbing of Age comment people are the best comment people on the internet.
Waking doormen from their naps!
Football players getting tackled!
CEOs, getting shackled!
Watching actors never reach
The ending of their Oscar speech!
Schadenfruede! The world needs people like you and me who’ve been knocked around by fate!
I was jumped by 18 gorillas made of titanium. The had rocket powered fists and Machine gun fingers.
It just felt like titanium, er and that other stuff. Tried to tell you not to go to Gagibuzzo.
“I’m gonna be honest with ya, officer; I had ‘im on the ropes until he whipped out the laser eyes.”
He’s like Flass from Batman Year One, can’t really say that he got his ass kicked by one person.
… but he’ll know. He’ll know and he’ll keep quiet.
What are you doing chatting with mortals?
If you’ve gotta invent somebody to beat you up to preserve your masculinity or whatever, wouldn’t you save more face by not reporting the crime at all? Seriously, this dude is the worst (reluctant to say what I actually feel about Blaine, because I’m not sure about Willis’s rules on profanity, but rest assured that it is vulgar).
So witnesses report to police that this guy got beat up, the cops get there, he’s beat to shit, and he says “nope nothing happened”?
Ah. I forgot about the witness, who probably was the one who did the reporting. Never mind.
Darn, too slow it would appear. I congratulate you as well.
“I ran into the door, dammit!”
“But sir, you’re outside.”
He probably wasn’t going to but there were witnesses who most likely tried to help him, called 911, etc. Also, I share your sentiment and comend you on your presentation. Bravo
Daisy’s a chubby chaser?
Does Amber count as a chubby or does she simply creates ‘chubbys’?
Well, apparently she does for Daisy!
She’s wonderfully curvaceous, though not very loquacious, and with a reasonable basis she goes to punch faces.
That was the sexiest sentence I have ever read.
Dr. Ze-us Dr. Ze-us! Doc-tor Ze-us!
Dr. Ze-us Dr. Ze-us! Doc-tor Ze-us!
I would need to see her more naked. If anything she is at least at that line where you’re JUST chubby enough that you can fake it with well fitting clothes.
As a lesbian, I doubt she’s very interested in chubbies.
Daisy may have a different taste in women than you, though.
(Also, safe search was on.)
I meant chubbies as in the slang term for boners. Most lesbians aren’t that into boners.
How can this be?!
My apologies. I was not familiar with that term. Excellent pun.
you barbarian savage! *drops monocle*
Unless they’re the synthetic kind.
Amber ain’t chubby. Cartman is chubby…Amber, I call her filled.
Word for the day: zaftig.
What does that mean?
of a woman : slightly fat in an attractive way : having a full, rounded figure”
Otherwise known as “Rubenesque”
— after the works of Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens.
Not to be confused with Paul Ruebens AKA Pee Wee Herman.That would be “zany”.
adjective: zaftig; adjective: zoftig
1. (of a woman) having a full, rounded figure; plump.
“a zaftig brunette”
A zaftig callipgyean brunette, in this particular case.
“Saftig” means “juicy” in German.
In Norwegian too, it’s probably the same word I guess. i.e. : A plumpy pear, a zaftig pear, a plump Amber, a juicy Amber ?
Clearly you don’t understand. Cartman is FAT. Amber is chubby.
No, Cartman is “big-boned” and “under-tall”.
I think liking amazi-girl qualifies you more as an “awesome chaser”. Or maybe a “human”.
Which is kinda close to Amazi-Chaser, now that I think about it.
Well, we can safely say that Amber is part Amazon.
Well, she is free to ship in most cases (with other DoA cast members)
While Billie is more of a beer chaser.
Would that make Ruth the whiskey if Billie is the beer chaser?
I’ve said it before, but… based on the things we’ve seen her do, I’m pretty sure the only soft part of Amber is the Amazi-Rack. She’s probably actually heavier than she looks, because muscle is denser than fat, but there’s a big difference between “chubby” and “strong, stacked, and built on a short and wide-hipped frame”.
“She’s a brick…house! Mighty might, just lettin it all hang out!”
“Nonsense! I don’t chase chubbies. I have people to do that for me! Dorothy! Billie! Chop chop!”
Considering how baddly misapplied the terms “chubby” and “BBW” oft seem to be (ie 95% of women that don’t share Dina’s bodytype), I’d guess so.
Awkward moment. Let’s all walk away now, Dorothy. This is how adults respond to finding one another’s porn. We walk away, and pretend it never happened.
While mentally filing away the URL for future perusal.
And some nice application of brain bleach when you found out that there are porns based on your childhood stuff…and things you wouldn’t believe that there are porn off.
Thank deity then that my childhood stuff did not include Teletubbies. Sesame Street porn is bad enough.
Yeah…I’m still trying to wrap my head around a Getter Robo doujin…or a Doraemon doujin.
Except for in the alternate universe where this takes place at Brigham Young University, where Dorothy can’t just “leave a wounded comrade on the battlefield.”
Does that lead to sexy times? I’m unversed in euphemisms.
It most certainly does not. Google “Mormon masturbation video” if you want to see the video that made the rounds a couple months ago that likens porn and masturbation to being wounded on the spiritual battlefield and that a good soldier doesn’t leave a wounded man behind. It really walks a bizarre line between hilarious and creepy.
No, I don’t believe I will be googling this video, good sir.
There’s no porn in the video; it’s an anti-porn commercial.
It tells you that, if you catch your buddy masturbating, he is like a wounded soldier and you can’t just leave him on the battlefield. You should heroically tell on him.
That’s not really the logical conlusion to that analogy, isn’t it?
see, when i read that, i thought it meant “you should heroically sit down and fap with him”
and i was all “i can respect that”
then i remembered it’s from the magic underwear people so, well, yeah, i like my version better
No, then you’re both wounded. Clearly what you should do is make sure he doesn’t have to fap, by giving him some actual sex.
Yes, I followed the meaning. That makes it WORSE, not BETTER.
Is that what we adults do? I just kinda say “Um..yeah!!Let’s look at this shit together, man!”
Adults you’re not particularly close to, or who are your superior.
It’s always important to have a good relationship with your superiors.
Rule of Acquisition #112
Never have sex with the boss’ sister.
Rule of Acquisition #113
Always have sex with the boss.
I’ll never forget my teacher who said, “the polite, adult thing to do when someone farts is to just ignore it.” Actually, I have forgotten her in that I can’t remember specifically which teacher it was, BUT I remember the lesson in politeness and discretion and such. Also, I apologize if this comparison makes anyone think of the unfortunate conjunction of tarts and porn.
Uh, I meant “farts and porn.” The conjunction of “tarts and porn” is pretty much a given, I suppose.
Well, if you can use a pie, you can use a tart, I guess. ;P
and suddenly a new genre of food porn is born… you made me rofl
New? oh you poor naive fool.
No no no, that’s NUDE-fashioned sleuthing.
DAMMIT I WAS JUST ABOUT TO POST THAT.
But I must bow to your greater efficiency
Wouldn’t that imply that Daisy and/or Dorothy would have to be naked whilst investigating the Amazigirl story?
That seems reasonable, nude means no costume.
And most superhero costume are tight enough that it feels like they are wearing nothing at all.
nothing at all
Stupid sexy Amazi-Girl!
…nothing at all…nothing at all
She wants amazagirl dropped in her lap, ya know what I’m saying?
Seriously, can someone explain it to me?
Well you see, when a girl and a superheroine love each other very much…
Bed manufacturers make major bank.
“Woman of steel, bed of Kleenex.”
I’m trying hard, and I’m just not seeing how two women going at it are going to actually wreck a bed unless they’re both superpowered, and explicitly trying to at that.
Well, physically destroy it, anyway.
SPOILERS: Joke comes from the Shortpacked verse. Lots of people were abducted by aliens in that series (lead by the Head Alien, who has been reimagined in this universe as the cartoon character Dexter that Joyce and Walky are such fans of). The aliens implanted them with all kinds of strange abilities, including super strength and superhuman endurance.
BIGGER SPOILERS:Joyce and Walky got together towards the end of the original Itswalky series, which inspired the motel guy they got the room from to despair that this was a “man of steel, woman of steel, bed of kleenex” situation.
NO SPOILERS: As for the whole “would the bed be in danger” bit, I can certainly see it. Sex does involve a lot of…ahem…back and forth motions, some quite enthusiastic and dramatic, the best ones quite convulsive and uncontrolled. If we’re imagining folks normally capable of busting through brick walls and throwing cars around like beach balls then such motions could easily become like mini earthquakes/meteor bombardments to your poor furniture.
“There was totally a big dude, like ten feet tall and a body like Donkey Kong. He must have unlocked the Cheat in Goldeneye.”
Unfortunately for him, his opponent was Oddjob.
Or Random Task. You don’t mess with Korean wrestlers.
Especially when they got a mean “shoe-throwing” arm!
Who throws a shoe? Honestly?
Never thought I see the day someone pulling out a reference to The Tick.
Then you’ve seriously misread the age and/or mentality of most of the readership here.
Eh, it’s not like he referenced Man-Eating Cow or someone.
Why not? The Tick had at least some mainstream popularity for a time. Personally, I’d be mildly surprised if I’d seen a ref to Orgasm Lass and Foreplay at some point on here (XXXenophile isn’t exactly mainstream recognized after all).
You don’t know the audience here very well then.
Not in the face!
Was Random Task a Korean wrestler? I know that the actor Joe Son was not. The closest he was to that was having a mixed martial arts career that lasted four fights, and that only happened because he managed a known MMA fighter and somehow parlayed that fact into a couple of fights of his own.) He did appear in a Japanese pro wrestling card back in 2003; I’d avoid it unless you want to see a 5’4, 240 pound guy wrestle in a leopard-print thong.
As for his MMA career: his first fight in 1994 ended with the opponent showing no respect for Joe’s half-assed attempt at choking him and punching Joe in the balls a dozen times to make him let go. When Joe did let go the guy grabbed him by the throat and strangled him until he submitted. Not that Joe had much of a chance in that fight in the first place since his fight entrance consisted of him carrying a wooden cross to the cage.
He took a kickboxing match in Japan and got his ass kicked there.
An MMA match in Japan ended prematurely when he injured his elbow after getting slammed to the ground.
Later he took a fight in LA and lost when he quit after getting slapped in the face. Supposedly he was high at the time of the fight. There is a fascinating personal account of that match. Even if that should be taken with a grain of salt, none of the other rumors deviate much from this story.
He lost his last fight (he never won, come to think of it) when he injured his shoulder after getting thrown to the ground. He didn’t seem to have much luck getting ragdolled by guys who can actually wrestle.
After flaming out in combat sports he was arrested for a decades old kidnapping and gang rape case that resulted in seventeen counts of sexual assault and a life sentence without parole. A few years ago he killed his pedophile cellmate.
“Then he should have been perfectly easy to shoot in the head, citizen. Or even to karate chop, if you were for some reason not armed to the teeth. Ten years in solitary for wasting my time!”
And he shoots fireball from his eyes and lightning bolt from his ass. And he can cleave rocks in half….by staring at it.
Assuming he was using Goldeneye cheats you could have even shot him in the gun. His hitbox was ENORMOUS.
Oh…oh dear. This won’t end well.
Yes…look at her “move”, Daisy.
Psst – Daisy!
I know a place where you can find Dorothy nude…
Dorothy doesn’t have an amazi-rack or an amazi-ass. Just Dorthotits and Dorthobutt. Much less appealing.
Wait. Waitwaitwait. Dorothy is less appealing than Amber? In any way?
She doesn’t have the mmmmmphhh. or the BAZOW. She’s just got the PEW and the BWIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING
Not to mention the WUBWUB, and the Daaaaaamn.
New life goal: Compliment a woman for having great WUBWUB without being beaten to death.
Who are you who is so wise in the ways of science?
I get the impression that this woman is horny.
I don’t see any horns.
Her skeleton is covered in bony spikes.
It’s actually pretty fuckin’ metal.
God dammit. Now I’m thinking of my Sawako/Deathklok crossover that ends with Mugi outhardcoring them all.
She’s got as many horns as Moses.
She doesn’t look anything like Moses!
So I guess that makes Daisy a Private Investigator?
Don’t you mean a Privates Investigator?
She just wants to catch Amazi-girl Red Handed.
Pretty sure Leslie is free.
I just realized
I am a fucking moron.
Hey, don’t worry. Some of us don’t get puns too.
I don’t know about this universe, but in the other one her name is actually Leslie Bean.
Made even more obvious when you remember Leslie’s surname is “Bean.”
I’m guessing she gets pretty insistent about people not calling her ‘Les’, cause then she’d be Les Bean, and that’s just too close.
And you people get on Danny’s case for not noticing Amazi-girl’s identity…
In my defense, I didn’t know people missed “Leslie Bean”.
Surely you can’t believe such rumors. Next you hear this story, he’ll have been assaulted by 30 men and a dog.
And the dog has a human face…and rabies.
I respect a good Discworld reference.
Admit it, we all have. For nearly everyone in DOA
Naw. I’ve found it but I always stumbled upon it by accident.
I want to take a quick poll. Judging by the last few strips’ comment sections, Danny seems to be the least liked character. I want to see who’s the MOST liked.
Who is your favorite DoA character? Mine is Daisy
I’m pretty sure Danny’s popularity has gone up since spitting on Blaine
…Billie on the other hand has had her popularity gone down because of her lying to Ruth!
The most popular is Dina. We’ve had several polls to prove it.
Most hated is likely Mary, for characters who appear somewhat regularily and Blaine for guest appearances (closely followed by nearly every other parent)
Dina! She’s depressingly relatable AND cute!
You know, I swear I see drool on Daisy’s lips on panel 2….could be just me though.
Oh! I’m sure she is.
thats why she is biting her lip…to hold back the flood!
Right now, the comment count is at 69. So perfect, almost wish it could always be that number.
“Daisy, stop poking me with your huge ladyboner, mmk?”
The comments have been very ladyboner heavy these last couple weeks.
Rule 34. No exceptions.
unrelated: Jocelyne is on the hottest lady poll! ヽ(；▽；)ノ
I almost picked her, until I realised I was judging her based on how she looked as a man and not as a woman.
That’s what I don’t get. She’s doing decently in the poll, even beating out Joyce, and we’ve only ever seen her when she’s passing as a guy. Jocelyne does need to be included in the poll, but I’m not sure what the basis is for voting for her at this point.
Preference for male physiology / discomfort in thinking of the hotness of female physiology?
She might not actually be that feminine. Really, all you need to be trans is to identify as a different gender. She might not even be dysphoric.
true… maybe the poll is a hint that she’ll be seen in the comic again and we’ll find out for sure
But isn’t Jocelyne F2M?
My bad, I should have remembered her as an M2F.
Could you imagine tho. Plot twist, the Browns: surprisingly chill with
Considering the name she chose for herself was ‘Jocelyne’ and she wears male clothing around her fundamentalist christian family . . . I doubt it.
Oh That’s cool…but Billie is winning!
WTF people, clearly Sal is Hotter!!!
Sal gets an automatic two-point deduction because of that cigarette she’s always got sticking out of her mug.
On a ten-point scale, that’s a lot!
I noticed that too! That was very sweet of you Willis!
Daisy is basically this universe’s J. Jonah Jameson at this point, but with a sexual fixation on the superhero.
Then again… can’t rule it out for John either.
Does that mean she’s gonna start flying around in an obsolete Iron Man suit like J.J.J has been recently in Spidey’s newspaper strip?
We can only hope.
I think the pertinent question in any case is that if Daisy does do this, will she have a chest window?
JJJ’s religion is “Hates Spiderman” though, so it’s not a perfect fit.
…Still doesn’t rule out a sexual fixation for JJJ, ofc.
I am leaving my first comment for the sake of stating that I just voted and Billie was on top with 69%. Perfection.
“Billy was on top with 69%”.
No. Absolutely not. There is no way you could have innocently composed that sentence and not picked up on the double entendre before posting it.
I’m pretty sure the double entendre was the point of the comment.
Is Daisy amazonian tall or is Dorothy just super short? Or both?
It’s a comic strip, that means the difference between character’s hight is allowed to be over 2 feet.
Dorothy’s the same height as Amber, who claims to be 5’5″ with her Amazi-Girl boots on… so probably really 5’4″, which is average female height. Tall Daisy is tall.
If we presume Amber and Dorothy are both 5’4″, I’d estimate Daisy is just under 6′. Which, if the standard deviation statistic I could find is accurate, puts her just beyond the +2σ part of the curve. So yeah, tall is apt but Amazonian is probably a bit off. I’d say “Amazonian” belongs to that tail created by the positive skew of female heights, so about 6’3″ and above.
Amber is shorter than Dorothy. Dorothy’s probably closer to 5’5″, while Amber’s closer to about 5’3″. Dina’s the shortest in the cast, being even shorter than that. I say “about” because I don’t really have set heights, I just know how tall or short folks are in relation to each other. I know Walky and Billie are my height (5’7″) and that’s about it — I gotta work out from there. Also I like to exaggerate height differences in my art to make things more visually interesting, so don’t go try measuring heights or nothin’ based on the art. There probably aren’t a literal two inches in height difference if you go comparing art of Walky and Dorothy.
Hmm. I didn’t actually go back and check, and was remembering Dorothy and Amber in the last panel of this strip as closer to being palette swaps than they actually are.
Man, if there’s anything sexier than embarrassed lesbians, I don’t wanna kn……
Man, if there’s anything sexier than embarrassed lesbians, I wanna subscribe to its newsletter.
I chose Dorothy, Billie and Amber…
I guess my type is pretty obvious huh
You’re into the curvy meganekko types right?
Newsies and the stories they chase?
Same, except I chose Ruth instead of Dorothy.
Looks like two people are hopelessly aroused in this strip right now.
Oh god. Blaine is going to send some innocent black man to jail, isn’t he?
It’s the only thing that could make me hate him more.
That would be something he’d do, wouldn’t it?! >:(
Uh oh… Jacob? Sure hope he’s got a rock-solid alibi…
oh god no
He could find many ways to make me hate him, but getting black dudes pulled over for matching the description of ‘large male’ is certainly one of them.
Daisy is hornier than a billy-goat, I swear.
Or just Billie
If she weren’t, this scene might have ended differently.
1. Blain is, unfortunately, alive.
2. There were witness who saw 2 figures, one with a cape, at scene.
3. Daisy is not stupid, juxtaposition of Amazi-girl on the brain, along with this report and hey there, ‘lets connect the two events’. AG and beating.
4. Kids on campus reading the paper already commenting on how the photo of Amazi-girl is so ‘familiar’, and she’s been pinpointed to her dorm by more than one student who saw her ‘fly’ out the window.
5. The first time Danny does something for someone-he gets burned. Or, he will get burned when the shit hits the fan.
Things getting interesting again with that line. If by chance, Dorothy connects Amazi-girl with the beating, and traces a description of boy with her….and if Blaine does i.d. Danny….not a good ending for either of them maybe.
I think most of what you say is viable, but I don’t believe Blaine will allow anyone to believe that he was beaten up by someone smaller than him, be that Amazigirl or Danny.
“1. Blain is, unfortunately, alive.”
Was this really in doubt? If Amber was a murderer, things would have been handled a bit differently.
I am really freaking glad Blaine is alive. Amber’s character would be ruined for me if she became a murderer. I mean, jeez, I have a hard enough time reconciling my love for her with the beating on its own. Plus, y’know, her life would be ruined.
Danny does have an iron clad alibi. He’s Danny.
“So what you are saying, Mr. Blaine, is that this kid over here is the one who beat you to within an inch of your life? Mr. Blaine, have you seen this kid? I don’t think he could take on a Basset Hound in a fight let alone a guy twice his height and body weight.”
Okay, okay, I kid. But if Blaine tries accusing Danny he’s gonna have a lot more questions to answer and his story is gonna completely unravel. I know I was thinking the cops might be on his side in the aftermath if he played his cards right…but that would require him being a tad more clever with his lies than this. Now he has as much to lose if the truth comes out as Danny or Amber. Hell, his story says that some J-random dude decided to attack him for no reason and did not steal his car or anything on his person. At the very least that won’t sound right to the cops, and the fact that his story doesn’t match up with other witnesses? Yeah, that’s gonna look bad. Gonna look worse when they learn he isn’t from this town and was banned from visiting the campus two days ago yet is still skulking around.
I know this is kind of unrelated. but Its kind of been bugging me-
in shortpacked, Robin pretend to be homosexual for a time, and then turns around and tries to force herself to become sexually attracted to Leslie. she does! and everything works out in the end.
in dumbing of age Ethan pretends to be straight for a while, and then turns around and is trying to force himself to become sexually attracted to women. he gets massive criticism and everyone is predicting doom.
is this a double standard? or is there a piece I’m missing??
Shortpacked! Robin is trying something new, for stupid reasons at first, but in the end because she genuinely cares for Leslie and wants to be able to fully reciprocate her love.
Dumbing of Age Ethan is trying something he already rejected. It’s not really for love: he genuinely cares for Amber, and knowing he can’t reciprocate her love is why he left her. It seems more about not wanting to be the person he is.
I think that’s the piece you’re missing: one is about changing for someone else, and one is all about denying what they want.
I guess that’s true- robin was in love with Leslie, but Ethan wasn’t in love with amber as more then a friend.
so when Robin knowing (saying?) she is straight still tries to changer her sexuality a little because she loves her. ethan is only doing it to make his life easier.
double standards imply similar circumstances. You can begin by examining the assumption that Robin is straight, rather than bi.
at one point she does say, “I’m straight, with one exception” which is why I assumed she wasn’t bi.
No, that’s pretty much the definition of bi, even if it’s straight-leaning.
Like my gf is bi, yet I’m a bloke, see?
Well, not really. The thing with labels like bi, straight, or gay, are that they matter the most to the person using them. So if somebody considers themselves straight with an exception, it’s kinda dickish to refer to them as bi, because they don’t identify that way.
man which alternate universe’s version of shortpacked! did you read
? did I get it wrong?
she pretends to be bi to trick Ethan… and for a while when they lived together they didn’t even have the beds pushed together because robin was against it. because she loved Leslie, she pushed her boundaries to try and become what Leslie needed-which was someone who WOULD push the beds together. that is, someone who was sexually attracted to her.
that was the vibe I was getting- unless I missed something. I could have forgotten some strip where robin goes, oh hey, I’ve been wanting that leslie’s female on my female the whole time!
which would almost not surprise me coming from robin.
wait a minute.
is robin bi?
like the whole TIME??
and just too nervous to try it at first?
but wouldn’t she REALIZE it after making out with a girl like, twice?
but maybe she didn’t??? because she’s convinced herself she’s straight? and even to the end she SAYS she’s straight with one exception because she just can’t even admit it to herself she’s actually bi??
and when Leslie asked who her first girl crush was she thought of amber because she’s actually is BI and not just because she wants to open up to amber in a way that she never could with her sisters??
have I been doing the exact same thing in refusing to realize the fact that Robin is bisexual?
Robin’s liked other girls before, Amber being one of them. There was also the time she was super into genderbent Joyce, and Willis has said before there was more to it than just being attracted to her male form.
okay, okay. okay. everybody already knew that.
fdnfejfieufn why did I not see that what the heck kdlgajfjaefi
I mean. part of me was always like wha?
but then I would be like, its robin so it doesn’t HAVE to make sense right?
She’s currently self-identifying as “generally kinda undefinably queer”, which I think translates to something like “bisexual, generally heteroromantic, but nevertheless in a committed relationship with a lesbian woman”.
(Malaya in that strip continues to crack me up, btw.)
Be nice to your confused readers!
Robin pretended to be homosexual to get Ethan’s attention. This was dropped a few strips later after Ethan broke the truth to Leslie. A couple years later Robin realised she was kind of into Leslie so a romantic relationship was possible.
It was even acknowledged that Robin had always had a thing for girls: first Joyce, then Amber and definitely Leslie.
Billie and Sal lead the hottest lady vote. This is my surprise face.
…and I contributed. I’m not too sure on Billie admittedly but I have fangirled over Sal since basically the start.
literally JUST realized this means Blaine. Uh oh.
I get it!
Daisy seems to always be havin’ a boner.
Was Blaine being nice to his daughter by lying on the police report?
I think he just didn’t want to admit that a girl beat the shit out of him.
John…I gotta admit that’s the only thing I ever thought, C’s idea didn’t even cross my mind.
yeah I doubt Blaine is trying to do Amber any favors at this point. He didn’t want to pay for her college anyway, and this would be as good a reason as anyway for her to get kicked out. No, he’s selfish enough to value his own twisted pride over taking vengeance.
But perhaps, if Dorothy and others find out what really happen and press it, he’ll think the cat is out of the bag and then just go for it with gusto and take Amber down.
I don’t think he actually knows that it was Amber who kicked his ass. He didn’t seem to recognize her as she approached, and in the dark, in the rain, while being brutally beaten, is not ideal circumstances for making observations.
Though when he has time to think about it, maybe he’ll start putting two and two together. “I came to visit my daughter, who I hadn’t seen in years, on Saturday, and I got beaten up by a girl. So I took my daughter’s boyfriend hostage and called her to demand she meet me, and I got beaten up by a girl again! Obviously, Amazi-Girl is… my daughter’s meddling RA!”
(This ends with Blaine being beaten to death with his own femur.)
Depends, if Amber is Blaines ‘pet project’ then he might be trying to pin it Danny while at the same time avoiding being emasculated.
“I did this all because your so special” isn’t an uncommon excuse among the abusive.
“Yeah, it was a guy. A big guy. Like 8 feet tall, built like a brick house. He hit me from behind, so I only got a glimpse of him. I think he was black.”
Considering he doesn’t know it was Amber I’m going with no.
ONE BRIGHT SPOT OF HOPE:
If Willis wanted to do a whole story about a legal trial, it would take yeaaaaaaaaars for it to end. It would suck so much energy out of the story.
So WILLIS: you wouldnt want to go through all the boring details of a legal quagmire would you? of course not. that would be the worst, and absolutely no fun for you.
Well Daisy if you wait long enough I’m sure you’ll get your wish at Slipshine.
That is, without a doubt, the best avatar for this.
Hard to convict someone if the main victim doesn’t cooperate. Police would drop this. Its not like they run DNA for every assault. Not enough lab techs in the world for that.
So how many went out and Googled ‘Amazi-Girl nude’ after reading this? It’s ok, we’re all fans here…
Well, probably not googled, since Google has been down all day (at least for me).
The real question is how many people had done that before this strip.
Google works fine, what’re you talking about.
That fourth panel makes me think someone’s gonna have blame wrongly put upon them.
I’ve never written to your comic before but I just wanted to say how much I enjoy every update it makes my day
