I see what you did there
Almost as useful as babywipes.
One can rid you of disgusting filth. The other is great for cleaning baby butts.

I’m willing to place a bet that Dorothy later asks Walky to dress up as a churchmouse again during their lovemaking, and then pretends it was just a joke.
Anyone willing to take it?
Not sure. I can see Dorothy dressing up as a wedge of cheese for halloween though.
Yasssssss, that would be a great couples’ costume for them at Hallowe’en, Walky!Mouse and Cheese!Dorothy
Joyce prolly wouldn’t dress up for Hallowe’en though, it’s an evil pagan tradition after all.
I think first she might try to sneak a preview by putting her cupped hands on either side of his head. He might not even notice if he is otherwise occupied.
MIB get around..
…something just occurred to me XD
[I'm making a collection!]
…WHAT THE HELL.
So Dorothy’s into turds then?
Hopefully Joyce isn’t forced to google that next.
Tricked, not forced. No one put a gun to her head and said she has to enter “strap-ons” in the Google search field.
Well, it happened off pannel so the jury’s still out.
Yeah… Where was Mike when that happened?
There’s an obvious joke here, and it has to do with a nickel.
It’s a little curious that Joyce’s willing to say “turd” when Discovery Channel was told to bleep that.
I doubt Joyce was allowed to watch the Discovery Channel, it supports the myth of evolution!
Actually DC made Mythbusters bleep “turd” but allowed poop, scat, dung, feces…
Dung is fairly scientific, though! I mean, BEETLES.
Well crap, now both Joyces have willingly chosen a mindwipe.
Same for Walky considering how long it took him to remember he was even in the video.
And by nightmares I mean my incredibly long and sexual dreams.
Adds a whole new meaning to the term book-bindings.
See now, this is an actual good reason why people should drink. To forget having seen stuff like this.
Nothing quite like alcohol and absinthe to purge those horrid thoughts.
Who needs a reason?
I drink to make other people interesting.
I drink to make the people drinking around me bearable.
(On a related note, I’m REALLY glad the lacrosse frat didn’t get their lease at the neighbor’s house renewed… Look at what I save! Money AND braincells!)
A lacrosse frat? How is that even a thing?
Nah, if you forget it now, you’ll just be reminded of it the next day by other people that do remember when you seem confused about something related to it.
I love these three.
Suddenly, the Hymmel tape becomes corrupted and unstable.
I think “corrupted” and “unstable” are good adjectives to describe Hymmel videos, and their real life equivalents.
Hymmel the Humming Hymnal; Behind the Blow.
Mike gets a hold of the vibeo
Next on Biography- Walky: Confessions of a Churchmouse.
“And then he flashed his pages.”
“He told me to touch his centerfold.”
“He wrapped his leather cover around me.”
“He kept making me flip the centre pages back and forth, back and forth…”
Then another hymnal showed up, and they proceeded to bookend me!
The “soiled bookmark scandal” was Hymmel’s undoing.
Hah! I just noticed the title.
Thank goodness for that, if anyone got off on churchmice, they would be a cause for worry.
Rule 34, PM. Rule 34.
A three-way involving a church-mouse? This I had not thought of.
…and now, “PSL” has a new meaning!
As the living embodiment of Perverse Sexual Lust, I think I’ll stick with the original.
The hover text just got me. Damn you, Willis! I haven’t even read that yet, and I still found it funny. At least I’ve got that PDF showing up eventually.
And in Panel 1, Walky gives us the title of the next book.
Beat me to it.
The only possible solution to this problem…
…but we all know secrets have a way of coming back, especially in DOA, and typically at the least convenient time.
Imagine the absolute field day Sarah would have with this.
(Mike, of course, already knew.)
Chastity Churchmouse is already giving me nightmares. *shivers*
There’s a kink for everybody…
You can have this kink then, Opus. I’ll keep my EthanxDrew fanfic TYVM.
Not my kink, I’m more into Dina in a raptor costume.
LOTS of winking at the pre-DoA fans here, I can’t help but notice. “Mindwipes,” “p. sexual lust,” and oh yeah, “Joyce + Walky.” I’m pretty happy that DoA doesn’t indulge us too often– new universe, clean slate, and this kind of thing is really easy to overdo– but a little change is nice every once in a while.
I’m pretty sure “turd” is the filthiest language I’ve ever heard Joyce use, though it’s better than even odds she thinks it means some kind of dodo-like creature.
She wouldn’t even say butthole yesterday, so yeah, turd seems a little harsh for her.
I’m pretty sure she’s accused Walky of “being a butt” before, but I can’t find the strip on a quick check. I did find this one, where she calls him “the stupidest little piece of poop I have ever met”, though, so it seems Walky just brings out the best in Joyce.
What about this little gem.
Forget Walky, MIKE brings out the ‘best’ in people.
Wow, the “F” word from Joyce! I completely missed that at the time.
And another reference to her skull. That’s twice in two days. Foreshadowing? Or just weird coincidence?
I don’t think I has seen so much of Joyce’s gums as I have in the last couple of comics.
She’s got gums for days.
There is some quality sneering going on here.
Come dance with us, Dorothy. You’ll be okay. You’re dreams will accomplish themselves. You were never meant to work. Come dance with us, Dorothy. Forever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever. And ever.
I’ve figured out where I’ve seen Dorothy’s expression in the last panel before.
“I hate that video.
Out of curiosity, the song he is referring to wouldn’t happen to involve him getting away from Batman due to his car losing a wheel, would it?
No, he’s just channeling Rachel Phelps in the movie “Major League”.
We should have got that live chicken…
The hover text made this ten times better.
And in canonical time, Halloween is just around the corner. What’s gonna happen if SOMEBODY ELSE wears a pink mousey costume, for giggles?
Man that grunt face in the last panel.
Where did Joyce say she had a crush on the mice boys?
She didn’t outright state it, but she said “the churchmice are no longer age-appropriate” (or words to that effect) suggesting that she’d had a crush on one (or more) when she was younger and now felt awkward about it because they’re so young.
I totally missed the meaning behind the sentence the first time and only understood after Dorothy’s reference back to it (“You’re right, the churchmice are cute once age appropriate”).
“… my sexy nightmares…”
OH MY GOD!!!
Joyce has gums…
It’s not just a wall of infinite teeth…
They’re so gonna bang.
I gotta say, I have enjoyed the facial expressions in this comic IMMENSELY these past few days.
God they’re all so menacing
Dare I say it? —
“They have washed their minds and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”
Wow, you just gave me flashbacks to church camp. o_O
You know what? I tried. After all the talk and grousing about the way these comments trivialize the characters and make lewd comments about this person getting together with that and generally take shipping to absurd extremes…I tried to be good. But SCREW YOU (as in I’m not caring about your opinion, not as in I am making lewd comments about…anyway). These three are officially my OT3 (“only true threesome”). So nyah to the haters, and good night to the rest of you.
But Joyce and Walky would be horrible together!
you must have not read It’s Walky cause they are adorable together, but i do like the current pairing a bit more
I have. I don’t think they’re horrible there but I do not see them as a good romantic pairing. Best buds? Sure. A lasting romantic relationship? Not really.
Shrugo. I’ve come to think of shipping as finding what gives a couple potential, not locating a absolutely perfect pairing from the get go. Joyce and Walky have potential, here as well as in the other world. Are they in need of more development? Sure. Same was true in Itswalky.
Awww, it looks like the mousie fun is over …
They are all nuts.
With that avatar, the correct response is “Mammals are weird”.

And then Mike walks in…
Ok, all this behavior, particularly considering the past few strips (“Oh God, no!”, “age-appropriate” WTF?) makes it abundantly clear that we’ve not quite seen the bottom of this.
I’m pretty sure by now that Joyce has been in the cast as well, or maybe she has somehow managed to gain control over the casting examination table (or what you’d be calling the Hymmelese age-appropriate “casting couch” equivalent).
At least we know that Joyce does not apply the term “weenus” to … things. That would have been awfully suspicious.
I assumed she was the blonde girl in the show audience a few comics ago (on the tape)…
Denial … I don’t think that’s in Egypt, Joyce.
The fact that Joyce said “turd” surprises me. I know the swear ladder migt be different in the USA, but the fact she’d say “turd” and yet is unable to say “butt” or “sex” does seem odd to me.
In the US, turd’s literal meaning is the same as anywhere else, but it also get used to mean something like dork, geek, or loser.
And yes, we Americans are weird about anything that exists as a part of or is an action involving the thoracic, abdominal, or inguinal regions. Also, it is a good idea to avoid a certain, arbitrarily chosen, finger.
Also, it is a good idea to avoid a certain, arbitrarily chosen, finger.
Now that is the reason that cartoon characters intended for an all-age audience only have four fingers on each hand. I wasn’t aware of that previously. Thank you so much!
She’s not unable to say ‘butt’ she was unable to say ‘butt-hole’.
More specifically, she was unable to call God a butthole.
Wait, so is Dorothy going to make this her story or not?
There was a panel missing at the end of today’s comic, so I added it: http://i.imgur.com/V78Iunl.png?1
annnd there goes sleep for the next week
You won the internet!
Worry Dorothy, because there IS a God in your world and he can be a real dick. All hail Willis.
Can anyone tell me how long after the update each night the site stops randomly crashing? It’s massively getting on my nerves and I keep losing rather long, well thought out posts.
Really? I never noticed, all my stuff gets posted within a few seconds right up until I decide to quit, about 2 AM Central time.
I… well, I can’t say I haven’t had any problems since DoA switched to Hiveworks, but I haven’t experienced it being particularly unreliable around update-time. Maybe a little slower than it is mid-day, but only rarely crashy.
I don’t see why not. Threesomes solve everything.
Next up: Hymmel the humming hymnal fanfic, or how eight your old Joyce learned about shipping.
“Chastity Churchmouse and the Silver Key”
They’re both such dorks I swear
Is Walky used to being called a turd?
That’s a rhetorical question, right?
I think we’re now all on a government watchlist somewhere for reading the phrase “prepubescent sexual lust”.
I know it’s irrelevant, but the Persepolis poster in the background made me smile. I just finished writing a paper on it for school. Who’s is that supposed to be?
It’s Dorothy’s; she mentioned it was her favourite movie in Gender Studies class.
The Walkyverse. It is leaking.
That’s bad. I’ve seen universes leak into each other before, and it never ends well. The Dead Universe leaked into my universe at least twice, and my universe leaked into the Dead Universe twice (once when Kup was fighting a Vampire/Zombie/Female Decepticon, and once when Shockwave used his time machine on the Dead Universe).
Also, there was that time Kimia was invaded by Evil Autobots from a Mirror Universe, the time Mirage bumped his head and woke up in a galaxy conquered by the Decepticons, the time a group of super-humans from Earth-616 teamed up with the Earth-bound anti-Infiltration team to fight Megatron’s Earth Infiltration Unit, that annoying bounty hunter “freelance peace-keeper” bot, the humanoid in the wooden box, and the time cyborgs from Universal Stream GargEnt 984.08 Alpha attacked Junkion.
One school year and so far Joyce has TWO repressed memories
on second (let’s be real – like twentieth) reading, I am suddenly super charmed by joyce’s use of “turd.” that definitely walks a line with bad words and ahhhh she is so greatcute
wow…did Joyce just…CURSE?!
She used crap when talking about the Gender Studies class while talking to Mike early on. Though I can’t remember the exact strip.
It’s this one, mentioned above by Never Simple. At least in the US, “crap” as a noun is mostly used to mean clutter, or something of low quality, or nonsense, so it’s not really profanity.
I’m more shocked that Joyce says “Friggin’” in that same strip, which has no other meaning than “the ‘F’ word”. But subcultures are strange what they’ll allow as acceptable synonyms for profanity, even for kids, and that can change over time.
Wait, wait, wait! They’re just going to pretend the whole thing, with all of those wacky shenanigans, never happened?!? Seriously, just walk through life acting like Walky wasn’t in an embarrassing TV show, that Joyce wasn’t attracted to Walky when he appeared on that TV show, and that Dorothy never saw said TV show at all?!? That’s a lot of repression. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from hanging out with Chromedome, it’s that repressing memories (or even worse, actively deleting them) is only asking for trouble.
Oh, and Blaster still won’t look at my phone! Brainstorm and Nautica both offered to take a look, but I refused. Brainstorm would probably turn my phone into a hand grenade, while Nautica might turn my contacts list into a singularity or a white hole. (Or whatever it is a Quantum Mechanic does). I’ll go ask Hoist to take a look at my phone.
The way Walky and Joyce are glaring at each other in panel 3, even before reading the alt-text, the first thing that popped into my head was ‘Walky Performs A Hate-Fuck’.
I don’t get it. Why does Walky feel so strongly about this? Obviously he’s pissed off that Joyce and Dorothy spotted him in something he’d been making fun of, but he never struck me as that anti-religion.
Yay, another meaning for PSL. I don’t know which version I like better.
Do not make fun of me! I am not to be meddled with!
Ooooh, just wait until I get inside that universe.
