I fully endorse Robin’s plan.
Or, better, a rabid wolverine with a bell on it. It makes a fun little ding-a-linging noise as it tears her larynx out.
Too frantic, it would be more annoying than Roz.
More annoying than Roz? I don’t think that’s actually possible. Roz makes Faz look like Bruce Willis.
Now, now, let’s not draw hasty comparisons.
No no, don’t do that. You’ll just make her mad.
A take-out box with holes? Maybe the wolverine is inside. Or a cat. Either way, Roz wouldn’t be earning herself any favors.
hairless cat? or is that to normal an approach
could be a BADGER! really tho I can’t wait to find out.
Badgers? We don’t need no stinking badgers!
You, sir, have won a cookie.
More like a mushroom
I know it’s been said to other comment, but MAN does your avatar match perfectly with your comment!
Does Roz have some powers too or are robin and leslie just oblivious
Invisibility would explain ALOT.
Invisibility doesn’t cancel out sound, so probably not.
Have YOU ever heard an invisible person?
I vote: Sex toys. Really big complicated sex toys! All licky-style!
I think they should still put her in a trash compactor.
Aww, isn’t she nice, she got them a gift. Always nice to say “Thanks for letting me live with you even though I never asked first.”
Robin and Leslie’s twin “Aaagh” is adorable. Best pairing in the Comic at the moment.
Is it nachitos? I bet it’s nachitos
definite mindhive there
I think I like this whole comic. Especially Robin’s theory on why they have squatters.
It looks exactly like the boxes many pet stores use for small animals like rodents or parakeets. Air holes, folding top with handle.
So I think it’s a degu.
there’s a dick in there.
there has to be.
the box has holes in it and everything!
Oh good. I see we’re still making allusions to Roz’s box.
the box contains jacob’s head
Probably got a cat in it. Roz thinks that it’s a good gift, but when Leslie has to go to the hospital, she decides to take over a bit more of the house.
Not just any cat, but the asshole cat that Mike found.
I want to believe it’s a Buffy reference, I really do.
My bet: a hypo-allergenic cat and a GWS/Something Positive reference.
Am I the only person who actually likes (possibly “has a slight crush on”) Roz? Sheesh.
Despite not having a crush on her, I like her as a character. She adds conflict to the story despite not actually being anywhere near as evil as everyone around here thinks she is.
But no I don’t have a crush on her, so it’s still just you.
No, you’re not.
No, I like her, she’s fun, witty, clever and cute to boot (no real crush though). OK, she’s a camwhore and sometimes you’d like to strangle her, what’s the big deal, right?
Considering that Roz actually pays attention to what’s happening around her, it’s probably something really sweet that will endear her to Leslie (Slightly) and persuade Leslie to let Roz live there on a probationary agreement.
Considering that Willis is the writer, it’ll probably be Mike’s stray cat.
1) Is this the first time we’ve seen the whites of Leslie’s eyes?
2) Wait, did Robin just lay the entire blame for having squatters on Leslie alone? “…why you have squatters in our house.” The only squatter I’m aware of is Robin’s sister, right? I’m sure that relationship at least *factors* into her presence here, Robin!
I like Leslie as well. I sure hate to be around when L:eslie flips out and takes matters into her own hands
Now Robin is experiencing what everyone else experiences with her.
It’s probably that LOL transformer cat from a few weeks ago.
That would be awesome, but no way would the box have stayed quiet this long.
Monkey Paw! Monkey Paw!
I don’t understand the hate for Roz. I think she’s a better character than Robin by far, at least she actually has half a brain and pays attention to her surroundings. Robin seems to often teeter on the point of being too stupid to live. Plus what kind of dickwad older sister doesn’t have an open invitation for their siblings to stay with them if they need/want a place to crash? Family is family, they shouldn’t have to ask.
Oh, how I hate that excuse. “Family” doesn’t give someone the right to take advantage of you and make themselves an unwanted guest in your home. Roz supposedly has a successful cam-whore business, and so shouldn’t need to mooch off anyone. She does it just to annoy Robin.
I agree w/Cholma that the family factor doesn’t allow for unlimited credit and total jerk behaviour per se, and I don’t see Robin as the horrible thing you make her out to be -she’s basically good after all- but I like Roz too.
Yes, Roz pays attention to her surroundings and has a brain. Which is what makes her much worse than Robin. Roz knows damn well she pisses everyone off AND CONTINUES TO DO IT.
Roz is a facinating character in that she’s a distorted reflection of Robin, but she still needs a punch in the face. Daily.
Whether or not Robin’s “basically good”, she’s still an idiot and has no social skills whatsoever. Robin annoys the crap out of me almost every time she opens her mouth, and I usually can’t wait for the focus to shift off of her and on to someone I actually care about, like Mike or Amber. Roz, on the other hand, is socially intelligent, clever enough to manipulate situations to her own gain, and actually has interesting and complex motivations for her actions beyond “I ate a piece of candy and now I’m senator.” I mean sure I understand she’s supposed to be the comedy relief character, but that doesn’t mean she has to constantly be such a one-dimensional oblivious nutbag.
And speaking of Robin, why the heck is everyone defending her and treating her like the victim in this? She’s got freaking SUPERPOWERS, for chrissakes. The only thing stopping her from relocating her sister within the space of a heartbeat is her own whiny attitude. She’s spent this whole chapter or whatever just bitching about the problem without actually DOING anything about it. Leslie is just as bad because while she complains and suggests passive-aggressive attacks, she still refuses to remove the air mattress and box from HER OWN HOUSE. It’s freaking pathetic! How can you defend these two when they haven’t even taken the most basic proactive action of politely asking the unwanted tenant to leave?
So Roz, in my opinion, is being rather especially NICE to Robin and Leslie. She waited until there was a free room in the house, moved herself in unobtrusively and without fuss, and even packed up all of Ethan’s toys for him. Asking for permission first would have just gotten petty, stupid rage from Robin and a series of meek half-excuses from Leslie until one or the other caved in, so why bother? And anyway it’s not like Roz’s being there is having any detrimental effect on the household besides making Robin grumpy. At this point she’s probably just waiting around until someone finally mans up and tells her to leave, which from what we’ve seen might not ever happen, because Robin is a responsibility-dodging bimbo and Leslie is a doormat.
Now contrast to what she COULD have done. Moved into the house when it was full, manipulated someone out of a room, broken up Robin and Leslie so there would be space. She’s perfectly capable of doing any of those things, and she didn’t. You’re all bitching because she did the least “evil” of all the evil things she could have done, and is being a good houseguest besides. It’s just completely baffling to me.
And then in an even MORE baffling twist the same people who hate Roz start swooning over Mike, of all people. THE GUY FUCKS PEOPLES’ MOMS. Are you all completely insane or just socially maladjusted to the point of lunacy?
Also why am I arguing so much about an internet comic??
Oh well whatever. Willis, I like your comic and your characters. Readers, I think you’re all nuts. End of ridiculously over-sized post.
I like this guy.
Me too. If only I were as eloquent in stating my opinions.
The problem with Roz is that she’s far more irritating than either Robin or Leslie, and is interfering with the status quo. That, and she has a bitchy little smirky smile on her face that makes me want to punch her into Funky Winkerbean.
Does Roz have abductee powers too? She’s kind of a ninja, you know…
What is this? It’s Saturday and I don’t see a bonus comic.
Damn You Willis! You gave us extra free comics last week, that means you are contractually obligated to give us free weekend comics forevermore. And no content.
I HATE YOU YOU STUPID HEAD SO ANGRY
Big box… If for Leslie, I’d wager that big arsed AT-AT that came out recently; would go good with Robin’s gifted Aluminum Falcon
I don’t know that it’s all that big. It’s just way closer to the camera than the rest of the room.
I thought it was right up against the dresser at first, too, which made it seem HUGE.
My guess for what’s in the box, a Mogwai from the movie Gremlins. It will start as a simple parody of how the Shortpacked! crew would deal with the situations from the movie. The Gremlins will then just be in the background overtaking the city while the Shortpacked! characters go back to living their lives as if the Gremlins weren’t even there. Then just before the midterm elections Robin will campaign on the issue of cracking down on the terrorist illegal aliens “They are little green men! What else could they be but aliens from outer space? They certainly couldn’t have come from a cute little furry animal in my Lesbian’s condo.”. Finally it will all culminate in a spectacular battle on election day. I’m not sure how it would go down or if Robin will get reelected. The one thing for sure is that one of the Gremlins will wake up hungover in Las Vegas married to Faz.
And Faz will name the little monster “Amber”
The house is an allagory for America.
Roz is even hispanic.
This IS what I think it is, isn’t it?
Aw, Roz is pretty cute there.
