Is it me or does Billie look odd with her hair down?
Sal-ness increased by 200%!
(though, she kinda looks like me now, except with bangs)
Grow the bangs, become the Billie.
CUT them, surely?!
I don’t really know how girl hair works.
…I was gonna explain this, but it reeked of “well, actually”-ing, and anyway there’s Google
But alcoholism is bad
And also I think we want her to keep her femurs safe
alcoholism is baad, mmkaay?
Actually, she looks like she’s going through withdrawal.
Looks a little like Lucy Van Pelt.
She looks hot. For a cartoon character, anyway.
She looks hot.
Double post? Damn, sorry for that.
Joyce’s thought – TWINS!!!
and by twins, you mean Billie’s chest puppies right?
well… those too…
It is kind of scary how many characters end up dressing like Joyce and then making a quick wardrobe change.
When you’re dressed like Joyce, you *know* you’re doing something wrong.
As Willis said, hoodie dresses for everyone!
The joke gets kinda smothered due to dark colouring, at least on my PC. Billie’s hoodie dress is not immediately obvious.
Ha, I totally didn’t get what was going on there until your comment. My brain was reading it as some strange guilt-reaction to the whole Ruth thing; your stereotypical cheerleader usually has a ponytail, Billy feels guilty and awful about what happened with Ruth, so since Ruth had been reaching out to her with cheerleady stuff Billy reacts to feeling unworthy by going out in front of other people being as uncheerleadery as she can, dressing in drab sweats and letting her hair down (when its not even bouncy).
Then I read down to your comment and realized I was waaaaaaaayyyyyyy over-reading things ’cause I didn’t get it.
(Part of it might be because even with the hood and pouch right there my brain keeps trying to parse what Joyce’s wearing as a sweater and so doesn’t see them as matching. It’s her cute hidey-hands, they’re what jumps out to me most and I associate that with sweaters since they what always do it to me!)
If it helps, my brain translated this page as “college student logic, class can suck it , it’s early “
Don’t worry, it took me a whole day to realize it. I’ll never understand what the problem is with matching looks.
I suddenly crave funyuns.
Me, too. But I have been craving salty foods for several weeks now.
Damn, now I’m thinking about potato chip chocolate bars and chocolate-covered bacon.
I HAVE EATEN THOSE OH MY GOD HOORAY YES
I think it’s honestly the picture on the packaging that makes me so.. so full of tears with longing. jesus. how… how did they do it
can I watch a video
don’t mind me guise
Sodium levels low? You must be really relaxed. Try getting frustrated at something
You obviously don’t read my blog, do you?
Well, no, but I was actually going for a joke there.
If laughter were measured in Scoville equivalent units of scale, that would be about a 100.
You mean logarithmically, on a scale of 0-3000000, that was a 100? Ohhh, sick burn dude.
Scoville units work better for burns anyway.
Great. Now I want Funyuns
“GIVE THEM TO ME!”
Wow. That’s hard core, yo.
Everyone should have Funyuns. I wish they shipped them up here to Alberta. Canada has its sucky moments.
Hahahahaha Friggin’ knew it!
By the way, did you ever draw the Dina/Faz spawn you wanted to draw last August. Just curious.
I’m sure I posted this.
Didn’t find the link, so I didn’t know if you ever had drawn it.
Aww, Billie’s been crying. Or she was awake all night wallowing in regret.
Or maybe she quit drinking to make it up to Ruth, and is finally detoxing!
Hey, I can hope, can’t I?
Sick-looking skin tone on Billie gives more credence to this theory methinks.
You can, but I don’t think the withdrawal symptoms would’ve taken effect already.
Unfortunately, I think the well-placed bottle implies the opposite :\
(The bottle is either in Billie’s hoodie pocket or in her room awkwardly in view)
Is it a bottle or the door handle
but you see how I saw that, right?
It’s clearly the door handle. Wave is just drunker than accused Billie of being.
I think 50/50, she’s either hung over because depressed drunkenness, or she’s detoxing.
“Ruth won’t make out with me because of my drinking! (Which is totally not a problem btw.) Clearly I need to drink to get over this.”
Yeah, sounds like Billie logic.
Or she’s hungover, but I like yours better.
Or maybe it’s just early as shit cuz Joyce likes to do that.
A very good point
I think all the female characters should start wearing hoodie dresses now.
The males can all have pajama jeans.
Or Walky can just take all the pajama jeans. Leaving everyone else… ?
Oh, Ethan. How convenient.
Sarah’s suggestion from the previous page speaks to me!
Sarah: I think everyone should start wearing strap-ons; It’s the best option.
Not complaining. Billie’s cute with her hair down.
Truth. Then again, I find most women are more attractive with their hair down. Every time they put it up, like for a Hollywood red carpet or other fancy night out, I’m all “No no no!”
Mrs. Animal has this crazy long, thick curly hair that comes down to mid-back. I can and do frequently just get lost in it. Whhooo.
Good move Billie, there is a limit on how many ponytailed characters you can have in a comic.
Or a dorm.
The shadows of the drama remain…in the bags under Billie’s eyes.
Count the shadows…
“Hey, who turned out the lights?”
Does anyone else think Billie looks like a half-Asian female Willis?
Nope. Willis’ boobs wouldn’t be nearly that nice!
Cue Willis’ post defending the awesomeness of his Rule 63 rack.
You mean, in that she wears glasses and has dark hair?
Is there some significance to Billie letting her hair down that I’m forgetting?
Just not wanting to match Joyce.
Trying to look less like Joyce.
Looking less like Joyce.
I think it’s just “Joyce is dressed too similarly…change now before she squeals ‘TWINS!’”
She’s just trying to not look like Joyce.
To look even more like Joyce.
REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE
I actually think there might be. Like her stopping giving a fuck b/c depressed from Ruth troubs. Deeper: her life falling like her hair
Okay, I’m going to bring a new angle on this: she’s trying not to have Joyce look like her.
THAT’S THE TICKET
The Golden Ticket!
OK, what the fuck is up with the hoodie dresses?
Not sure but I kinda want to get a hoodie.
Just don’t wear them in London, otherwise the Bobbies will bother you a lot more.
UK LEO. named for a 19th century London Police Chief Robert something or other. They were Bobbie’s Boys, then shortened to Bobbie’s, then the apostrophe was dropped (because there were a helluva lot of illiterates in 19th century London) and the entire force was called Bobbies. And why the hell am I teaching a history lesson at 0100? I’m going to bed.
“…derived from the British Home Secretary, Sir Robert Peel (Bobby being a nickname for Robert) the founder of the Metropolitan Police.”
as quoted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_slang_terms_for_police_officers
Bobbies: Slang for any British police officer wearing those helmets like the one below.
No-one calls the scum that anymore.
Willis saw some fan art of Billie that demonstrated that hoodie dresses are just better. He learned. He acted.
They’re a race of alien symbiotes that have initiated their invasion.
If they touch there will be a Billie/anti-Billie explosion that will annihilate them both.
or they will just gasp in surprise and faint, it could go either way.
They’ll fuse into one. Jillie.
Sounds like that stupid movie where Jennifer Lopez is a lesbian-but-not-really.
It’ll be fine as long as one of them kept the receipt.
HOODIE DRESSES FOR EVERYONE.
But I don’t really have the legs for them anymore.
Also, are you interested in a new happy Joyce with condom hat?
Edited a strap in there.
Forgot about that bit… NIIICE!
Thank you, both of you! I’ll certainly keep this in mind, if nothing else.
(I’m a little attached to Death Glare Joyce, but Happy Hoodie Dress Joyce is wonderful too.)
Of course, you can combine the two, but the death glare turns into something else without the mouth. http://imageshack.com/a/img513/2558/qzba.png
What has science created? THE GREATEST JOYCE EVER.
She doesn’t look so much angry as – something else.
And naturally, I didn’t see that you already mentioned “something else”.
Love how perky Joyce continues to be in this sequence.
Easier to do when Sal isn’t strangling you to start her morning.
Actually, come to think of it, that was only a momentary setback.
It’s easy to be perky early in the morning when your mind is clear and your heart is pure.
Are you suggesting that Billie’s massive hangover and guiltiness might be effecting her mood? Seems unlikely.
Just callin’ ‘em as I see ‘em….
Another synonym for “clear” is “empty”… Just sayin’
EMO Billie nothing bright shall stay
Billie’s post-class plan: burn the dress.
Billie was kicking it old school with that scrunchie.
Damn…..uh looking good there Billie (she looks like shit)
Um..with her hair down she kind of looks like Ruth
This keeps happening.
We are the Joyce. Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated…and it’ll be tons of fun!
Joyce is too cute. If you keep this up, Willis, heads will explode. There is only so much cuteness that can be drawn.
The shields will hold as long as we don’t stuble on a Hoodi-dressed Dina.
God help us if we ever do.
It would be a day that would live in infamsqueeee!
Just saw a sweater dress in person for the first time today. Unfortunately it was romper short, so, too short. And she was only wearing tights underneath. Not cute.
Ha. Gah ha. Gah hah hahaha! Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! What, ya didn’t get no sleep, Billie?? Aha ha ha ha. Whew. But seriously, this is what happens when you lie and then try to rationalize yourself.
You done Billie’d up, Billie.
Never could figure out why school girls, or guys, old enough to dress themselves, walked around like a 2 year old with their sleeves hanging over their hands. Fold them back and get on with it. Not cute, just looks juvenile.
Both Billie and Joyce look pretty good with reverse hairdo’s.
because look at your name.
Never could figure out why people abuse apostrophes.
Some say it’s ignorance or carelessness, but my theory is that people do it specifically to piss me off.
I hairdo, you hairdo, she hairdoes.
More like hairdont.
I had to honour the theme.
It’s across the street from Lefty’s.
The sleeves protect and warm our hands. (Gloves aren’t retractable)
So she thought Ethan might like it if she dressed like Billie?
And Joyce is like “^___^” all the time.
Dad-gum, Joyce is so darn cute with her hair up!
Cute as Joyce is, she’s entirely too chipper for the morning. I personally feel more like Bille right now
I’m just looking at Billie in that last panel and thinking “Cheer up, emo kid.”
Joyce is the Pink Twi’lek Jedi to Billie’s Dark Darth Vader.
For there to be light, darkness there must also be.
I finally figured out why Joyce’s new look seemed familiar. She’s slowly becoming Frankie from Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends.
…..O.O I see it! It’s breaking my mind, but I can see it!
I can’t see her hands.
She’s going for the Numbuh 3 look.
They are deadly weapons now, under there.
5 scalpel blades on each.
Heh, Joyce looks like she’s being shaded in as the comic goes along. Panel two she’s flat with shadow, panel three there’s some shine, and panel four there’s underboob shadow.
The scrunchy is actually glowing with an unearthly light – in panel 3 Billie tilts her head and allows some light to shine past, and in 4 it’s casting its holy light down upon them all.
I had to go back through the archives because I couldn’t remember if Joyce and Billie went shopping together, which would presumably have been when they got the dresses.
They did. In July and August 2012.
Now I wanna know: did they buy them independently of each other, or was Joyce trying to copy Billie?
Cragalanch was wrong. Billie did not drink herself into a coma
Or she did, and this is all her drunken nightmare
Hypothesis: Billy is, indeed, detoxing. And going completely cold turkey.
She will get DT’s (or other serious, dangerous alcoholic withdrawal issues) and need to be hospitalized, which will lead to Ruth feeling super guilty and blaming herself.
(Also because it does make sense plot wise?)
Dude! Don’t give Willis any ideas!
This is going to end badly for Joyce.
With Billy’s bad morning mood only foul could come to them.
Weird fact, I’d like to see Billy date Ken or one of the other not-yet-seen New Shortpacked characters.
