Before anyone asks, these are old newspapers.
What does it say about Robin that Leslie was so easily fooled by a half-hearted attempt?
That Roz, over the years, got good enough at mimicking Robin that Robin has no immediate defense.
Roz IS kind of struggling there to do Robin’s usage of slang, though, which greatly amuses me.
Enough for there to be WAY too many posts about reading while on the toilet. Usually I like to get in and get out, but I’ll find myself stuck on the throne occasionally if I was playing PSP or DS prior and can’t put em down.
Who reads on the toilet!?
You must not be married. It is the perfect place to get some quiet time and read.
That’s why we go to the toilet.
Maybe not every married couple, but it is one of mine. This was also Al Bundy at his best…
Im not married and I still go to the bathroom to read. When my ex and I lived together (btw, unless there is a ring on your girlfriends finger…. don’t live with her. It ruins relationships like a paper shredder can ruin a tie, and your day.) we had a small library in the bathroom.
I’m posting from the terlet right now.
My dad used to refer to the bathroom as the “reading room”!
Sometimes I read .. Sometimes I take a “cr@p nap”
Wait… are you saying you DON’T read on the toilet?
I thought EVERYONE read on the toilet.
There are only two things you can do sitting on a toilet alone, and the obvious one is so boring that you HAVE to read something just to stay awake.
I play my Nintendo DS.
We keep an electronic Solitaire game on top of the holder for the extra toilet paper.
You’re missing out, for realz.
I don’t. But I do write while I’m on the toilet. Does that count?
You have snow in your bathroom?
No, but I have three thick notebooks and plenty of pencils. Besides, I lack the necessary (traditional) snow-writing equipment.
Enough people that there is a series of books written specifically for that purpose.
Who doesn’t read on the toilet?
I do almost all of my reading when I’m making a sacrifice to the porcelain god.
I have no desire to know what it is she’s eating and want one all the same.
It’s a urinal cake. She’s been established as eating those, along with dishwashing detergent.
That explains so much, doesn’t it.
When was she eating detergent? I don’t remember that at all.
When Amber asked Mike to go to the docks as their first date. Robin was innocently sipping something hot pink, Amber asked, Mike accepted, and then Robin said something about her drink being detergent.
I knew that off the top of my head, I’m such a nerd.
This is my new favorite slang for doin’ the bathroom thing.
Is, is she eating a urinal cake?
no shes eating a pink hotpocket that looks alot like a urinal cake “sarcasm”
Well, to be fair, if I didn’t KNOW it was a urinal Cake, I might assume (that with her sugary diet) she’s eating a Pink Sno Ball http://www.hostesscakes.com/snoballs.asp
At least it has “cake” in the name.
when, uh, when did they establish she eats urinal cakes?
OK, probably not the spot for a technical question, but what the hey, I don’t see a contact button all that handy.
I used to be able to leave a browser tab open to whatever the latest page was (like http://shortpacked.com/comic/book-11/06-sister-tact/funkysadsad/ ) and when I checked back I could just hit reload and Boom! there is a nice “next” button waiting to take me to the next comic. Worked if I came back in a week or a day.
Now when I reload I’m at the home page with the latest comic on it. Out of order story arc wise. And the archive is a major pain.
Most online strips I look at use something like:
And awhile back ShortPacked did as well. It was good. The ” http://shortpacked.com/comic/book-11/06-sister-tact/funkysadsad/ ” format was not as good but I could deal with it. But…
ShortPacked is fun (even with a shortage of blaster wielding rodents of late) but I’m not sure it is worth trying to figure out the “weird menu of the week”.
Sorry about the rant but I figure if folks leave (I doubt I’m the only one who has a problem) it’d be good if the Willis knew why.
First time I recall seeing a “Your comment is awaiting moderation.” on shortpacked.com.
Try putting a “www” at the beginning.
Tried adding www to problem url:
= “Page Not Found”
Just to note: Non www address is from my browser’s back button, not one I typed in.
Noticing some folk (lower down on this page) are having problems with the archive.
Not really a complaint (it’s your gig – run it how you want), but why the bassackwards moving-target-whack-a-mole interface?
I suppose I may be missing some artistic reason, but I think the strips stay the same whether the page is named 21165.htm or banana-peel-nuke/
I enjoy your art / humor… Interface is a subconscious attempt to verify we love you? Done by someone who hates you maybe? Some twisted form of DRM?
Just another attempt to drive me MAD?! aAAAAAAAUGH!
There all done, I’m crazy, now you can go back to a good interface.
I bookmark the second to newest comic so I can come back to it whenever I want.
That (more or less) seems to be what isn’t working for me anymore. When I try to load the “old” comic it all goes kablooy. Might be because I can go a week and a half without checking… I think maybe the whole interface changes in that time (the latest url has “blog” in it) but it would be kinda nice if old strips stayed put and didn’t move around like bad horror movie monsters.
Why would one eat a urinal cake?
I didn’t realise that Robin was eating a urinal cake until I read the comments. I just hope she at least purchased them herself, rather than scavenging them.
Roz shoulda been reading the TFCC magazine because:
A. That would really tick Ethan off, especially when she runs out of TP and needs to use pages from it.
B. It would give Willis another opportunity to show the picture of him pointing at his crotch.
Ethan wouldn’t keep that in the bathroom! It’d get all gross.
Roz could’ve just borried it for a minute or two. Ethan’d never know.
Did you know that none of your posts have been showing up in the LiveJournal feed since last week?
Finally made it through the entire archive…
Great story! I love the characters, they’re very fun.
I was curious, though. What kind of hispanic is Robin? What country is her ancestry from? As a Puertorican, I’m curious…
This has nothing to do with the latest comic, but there seems to be some missing from the archives. I just reread the entire thing (phew!) and the part where Robin reads that internet article about a guy being gay for Batman (and approaches Ethan in her underwear, with a Batman toy in hand) was nowhere to be seen. I think it was originally in fall of 05?
Did you have any trouble with the comics from June of this year? I get the posts, but not the comics.
