Turducken! It’s the closest we may get to eating griffin!
Even when goth, Robin can still pull out perfectly inane statements. That’s why we love her.
I thought that was the purpose of goths. *badumtish*
A darkness Turducken sounds absolutely hilarious. And delicious. Robin is awesome.
I believe this is the third time We’ve seen Robin shove an entire hand in her mouth… also TURDUKEN!
Nope when she first moved in with Walk’s squad in It’s Walky she ate Joes arm too.
Here’s a link.
Leslie is fisting Robin.
That would probably be sexy if I hadn’t read the comic.
Turducken, Goths, and jokes about blowjobs. Why, if it isn’t the classiness trifecta!
“It’s a darkness turducken” is now my new catchphrase.
You can’t have it, it’s MINE.
I shall stab you for it!
People, people. There’s an easy way to solve this problem.
Who here has the Emo!Robin avatar? Because that person gets “Darkness turducken” as their catch phrase.
Oh, wait, I have that avatar!
And here I thought Ethan and Roz were the two characters least likely to have anything in common…
i was wondering when that’d come up with ethan, hehehe
“A mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in an awesome rack.”
Cookie for the reference.
From another awesome comic:
and here in my naivete I thought we were talking Churchill but the most disturbing thing is, I’ve binged up to comic 980 in the last few days and I didn’t remember this… You know what this means don’t you? I’m going to have to go back and start again until I get it right…
Churchill were many things, but I don’t think he had all that much of a rack.
As I recall he was kinda chubby. He probably had moobs.
Sandstorm is a hard-shelled mystery of a robot, wrapped in a soft-shelled cover-identity and cemented by a tasty bean-paste of lies.
Gloomy Goth Robin. Snickers. Fisting (sort of). Oral sex jokes.
In short…one of the Best. Shortpackeds. EVER.
So, any chance of an Emo-Paint Robin as a chase figure?
Cogito ergo NOM!
Ah, QC references never get old.
That last panel is so… Wrong… Cause we know what Roz is talking about, and I’m more scared Ethan does too…
How is that wrong? Ethan is an adult with a healthy sex life now that he has accepted himself. His reference is not a bad thing.
Roz is iffier, but she’s a negative role model anyways.
Cause I dont want to hear about it T.T
Well the rest of us do.
Pervert alert XD
“Ready normal people?” “the internet is for porn…”
Saying that while you have a Joyce avatar is fairly amusing.
That said, it was an offhand reference. We know Ethan is having sex, we know Roz is a camwhore. Both of their statements are reasonable here, and neither is explicit. Given some of what has been shown in Shortpacked! and Willis’ other strips, I don’t see why this would be the part that bothers you.
For what it’s worth, I agree with you
What are you, 12?
Seriously, the Joyce icon is killing me with its irony.
That’s not irony. If someone gets iffy about Sex and they choose to use an avatar of a character who’s also iffy about Sex? That’s very far from irony. In fact, it’s downright expected.
Boy have you been reading the wrong comic if even mentioning Gay sex freaks you out.
It’s just an offhand reference too. It’s no more obscene than Roz’s comment.
Gay sex does not freak me out… I just really didn’t want to know about Roz and Ethan wanting a Robin’s gag reflex… And last time I checked Roz was streight which means she isn’t having gay sex…
Here is the deal.
Ethan is gay. Ethan like men. Men have penis. Ethan want gag reflex to suck penis.
Roz is straight. Roz like men. Men have penis. Roz want gag reflex to suck penis.
Unless you actually are 12 and didn’t realise straight girls give their boyfriends blow jobs, I don’t know what else to say to you.
Wait, does Ethan have a sex life now? I genuinely don’t remember him getting laid since he found out he was gay other than Mike.
He has a boyfriend now, they seem happy together, it’s reasonable to assume they’re gettin’ jiggy.
For what it’s worth, I’m with Ethan.
And if you don’t like talk about gay sex, why are you at Shortpacked? Robin and Ethan are both in gay relationships and have been for a while now. The only ones in a ‘traditional relationship’ are Mike and Amber (which in itself is a slap in the face to traditional relationships).
Oh and some gay people don’t like hearing about hetero sex either, and in my case, I think that orally pleasuring a woman is disgusting.
I know! So wrong.
Complaining about it wont help, they need to practice. Or just inhale vast amounts of candy, that seems to work for Robin.
I said it a few comics back… though I recommended skittles. Well what ever it takes to kill the emo.
Also, from where Leslie’s standing, it kind of looks like she threw Sydney down the stairs. That would really take care of her problem.
I know how to brighten Robin’s day: She just needs to float in the air by the stairway and sing “Jump In The Line“.
Okay, I believe you.
Whoa, someone else loves Snackers brand choco-simulated bars as much as I do. Awesome.
Isn’t the point of the turducken to eat three different birds at once?
If you have darkness wrapped in darkness wrapped in darkness, it’s just three layers of the same thing. It’s like eating a chicken that’s stuffed with chicken that’s been stuffed in another chicken. Chickkeken is not the same as turducken.
The turducken analogy is not apt!
Dude its ROBIN, almost nothing she says makes logical sense to normal people. Heck I’d be shocked if it DID make sense…
Maybe it’s emotional darkness wrapped in physical darkness wrapped in…. salmonella flavored darkness?? And wouldn’t it be called a turDARKen?
Okay, it’s a darkness with three layers, right? It’s a darkness tres leches!
Google the deliciousness!
Darkness is like an onion, it has layers.
And before anyone can jump in…No, it is not like a parfait, that has different layers. And yes I know that people like parfaits.
What about cake? Cake has layers. Everybody likes cake. Gotta love Shrek, man.
But… but… the cake is a lie.
Chikkeken is now one of my new favorite words.
My favorite part is the fish eyed look Robin has in the last panel.
Just wanted to join in the general chorus of “niiiiiiice…”
Also, Robin is way hot as a goth. Way.
Did you steal the snickers idea from Psych? That was how Gus got Shawn to go volunteer on the Ferry episode this season.
Oh, oral sex jokes and darkness turduckens. Don’t ever stop writing, Willis.
Oh, it’s twoo! It’s twoo!
…Why you suckin’ on my arm?
Baby, please! I am not from Havana!
Y’know, this puts a whole other disturbin’ spin on the strip where Les dressed up as a giant chocolate bar in an attempt to seduce Robin.
She did not dress up as one, she baked herself into one!
dont get rid of emo-robin just yet….sure her krytonite is sweets who else wont fall for it
Am I the only one who’s completely in the dark about what a “turducken” is? I googled it – it must be the craziest American invention – ever. It’s even beyond the weirdness of Japanese gameshows. O_o
Check out the PSA about the turducken done by the Red VS Blue crew:
Simple explanation: a kind of food made by stuffing birds inside other birds, kind of like a Russian doll. Inside the turkey, there is a duck; inside the duck, a chicken. Tur-duck-cken. Some people take it even further, past “tasty” to the “to see if we could” level, by imagining quails and ostriches etc.
Such as: ostrurduckeningeon
The turducken is the latest interpretation of ancient Middle Eastern cuisine. Back when a sultan threw a feast, usually a wedding feast, the ultimate dish was several different animals stuffed into each other, with the one on the outside being a camel.
Am I the only one that d’aww-ed at Leslie knowing how her girl’s mind works instead of making snarky sex-jokes?
Oh Robin, cheer up, don’t you know you’ve inspired someone?
Albeit, you’re a rather stranghe role model?
(Go to 113 of this site I found- fandom secrets)
Gag reflex? Eeewwww.
Awwww, Ethan and Roz had a moment!
A moment that says good things about Drew!
WHOA there, Ethan, did not need to know that much about your relationship…
I wonder if she got her practice on Jacob’s “chocolate bar”?
I’m getting slightly irked by all the comments referring to Robin as being all Goth. She’s not being Goth. Goths tend to be actually rather happy people. They dress in a way that makes them happy.
Robin is being all Emo. Not Goth. Major difference.
Depends upon the individual. The fact that you seem to only know perkygoths ( the absolute bestest kind ) doesn’t disprove the ones who make Wednesday Addams look chipper.
Major difference togoths (and emos, I suppose). From the point of view of hippies, nerds, dandys and cowboys? Not so much.
You’n me both, man.
But it’s not worth trying to fight the tide.
Emo: I am sad.
Goth: Life is sad.
“Perky” Goth (some don’t like this label): Life is sad, but I choose to be happy.
Can we call her an Emoth? Would that work? Emo interior, Goth exterior, Chocolate in her mouth= Darkness Turducken! or Gothemolate!
I always though the difference between goths and emos is the self inflicted pain stuff, oh and goths hate the wold and emos hate themselves, but I rarely pay attention to other humans so don’t quote me on that…
Nooo! Her gothiness has transformed her into a zombie! This is the most dramatic twist yet! Guard your brains Leslie!
So…Robin’s a Black Lantern?
Emo Robin is hilarious.
The use of the brown labelled “–ckers” bar was brilliant. “Shortpacked with peanuts,” earns a chuckle, but, “S–ckers really satisfies,” becomes gutbusting when it’s read for a panel that has two people admiring Robin’s gag reflex.
Another thing that might make the choice of bars amusing is recollection of several Superbowl commercials a few back, featuring two homophobic idiots beating each other senseless in an attempt to compensate for having reenacted a moment from the “Lady and the Tramp” spaghetti scene.
It’s unlikely that factored into creation of this strip, but it prompts thoughts of the old Irish Spring jingle. Manly, yes, but Robin likes it too.
Waugh. If I’ve got the proportions right, Leslie’s hand is INSIDE ROBIN’S STOMACH.
It looks to me like her hand would merely be in Robin’s esophogus, right about the sternum area.
… I just noticed Robin’s tongue sticking out of the corner of her mouth in panel 6. I don’t know why, but it just strikes me as really adorable in some weird way.
Robin’s expression in that panel was my second favorite part of this comic, right behind “darkness turducken.”
Panel 2 is pretty much the best thing ever.
This should totally be a commercial:
“Even emos can’t resist the delicious taste of a Snickers chocolate bar!”
…As an aside, how the fuck is Emo Robin paler than my sister (who is paler than a sheet of paper)?
Because it’s a cartoon
or Hostess products.
Considering its Robin? powdered sugar.
“Darkness turducken” is my new favourite two-word combination.
Oh gayness; I have missed you.
Now I want a Ckers bar.
If only all depressed people had her attention span, the productivity and content quality would improve tenfold at my school’s literary magazine.
No comic is complete without two background characters discussing fellatio.
Everytime I see that last panel I think of “Shoomp”.
Darkness Turducken would be a killer band name.
It’s also the funniest phrase ever to appear in Shortpacked
So what exactly did they do with their “other problem”? Tie her up and left her in the basement? Pushed her down the stairs? Or maybe simply tossed her out. The strip didn’t exactly show it.
Good god, Robins gullet is a black hole from which no sweet can escape…
Hahaha….Ewwww. : D
Gag Reflex huh? That answers my question on whenever Ethan is the pitcher or catcher.
Not really. Being gay does not lump you into just one of two categories. There are many, many ways to be gay. What one gay man enjoys, another may not. Many homosexuals enjoy both sides of the “equation”.
I consider myself hetero-flexible, meaning that while I prefer feminity, I still find some genetic males attractive. However, I am not interested in preforming oral sex on a man, but it doesn’t disgust me either.
Point being, that everyone is different even within any demographic you put them in. Of course, you were probably just joking. And there was *never* a question about Ethan’s preference in my mind
A Red vs Blue reference? just when I thought I couldn’t love this Comic anymore. ^_^
