With creme eggs comes great responsibility…
Makes you wonder how the Spider-Man story would have gone, had THAT been his motto.
He would’ve spent his life pigging out on Cadbury Creme Eggs, and die a thirty-year-old fat dude.
Thrilling, ain’t it?
The really sad thing? That still would’ve been many times better than One More Day.
If this doesn’t end with Robin crossing over into DoA a la “Fringe,” I’m going to be sorely disappointed. Cadbury egg cereal>cortexaphen.
I guess she should also refer to the walky of that universe as
FNGH. Foresaw a weekend cliffhanger on this, but it still stings.
No good can come of this
No good, but perhaps… But I’m pretty sure awesome can.
“The solution to all of our problems.”
I think I have a pretty good idea on what’s gonna happen after this…
Those chocolate eggs of goodness are a dark, dark omen, my friends…
A dark CHOCOLATE omen, methinks ^_^
is this something you’ve done before Willis?
Yes, in this comic.
i meant in real life.
And on Monday, we discover Robin has revitalised the economy with porn.
You bastards reading through the archives are lucky. This strip was posted on a Friday, hence a whole weekend of waiting for the resolution.
WHY DID I READ THESE COMICS WHILE THEY WERE STILL NEW?
Oh you like it.
Well played. I am laughing so hard I can barely see through the tears.
Five minutes later, Robin has destroyed the universe.
Can one buy those eggs this time of year?
If you live in the UK, I think you can get that Twist thing year-round. Essentially the same thing, but more like a candy-bar. And twisted.
…I miss jellybabies.
They say the Evil One eats babies.
And his name is Harold Saxon.
I thought his name was Robert Paulson :/ /revive dead references
Kudos on the Doctor Who reference.
Gah! I hate to be anal about this, but the supernerd in me can’t let that stand.
That line is from the 1977 serial “The Face of Evil” and is space-caveperson Leela’s first reaction to the Fourth Doctor offering her a jelly baby. (Well, okay, it’s a little more complicated than “space-caveperson”, but whatever.) Nothing to do with Saxon, who wouldn’t be an alias of the Master for another thirty years.
That cereal looks so yummy.
Is anyone else as tempted as I am to try that?
Gods no. One Cadbury creme egg is sickly sweet enough to knock out all the fillings in your teeth, imagine a whole bag of them in milk. I’ve been known to eat weird shit and I’ve know one person who put diet coke on his cornflakes because he was lactose intolerant, but nobody alive can handle cadbury cereal.
That, my friend, sounded like a challenge.
Once they’re selling them around here again, i will TOTALLY try it.
After all, it can’t be much worse than melted chocolate chips with extra sugar stirred in, frozen, and coated in honey, and I survived that..
Where would you like the flowers sent to?
It did indeed.
(Triple Roadblock For The Win!)
If you can get your hands on an ice cream maker, try Cream Egg ice cream. Use a couple of the big ones – scoop out the insides into the ice cream mix and chop up the shell – and a bag of the little ones (might also need to be chopped in half, depending on how big/strong your ice cream maker’s “blades” are).
I made it with plain ice cream, but I guess you could do it with chocolate.
Now that sounds delicious, if terribly bad for you.
So basically a Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry? McDonalds UK beat you to it! They ARE good though!!
I once tried a bowl of Maltesers in milk. Pretty excellent.
(For yanks, Maltesers are a bit like those Hershey’s Whoppers, but the centre’s malt honeycomb)
It has been done. There was photographic proof, but that was on Facebook a number of months ago.
Love The Simpsons reference!
I’d say “Be careful, Robin,” but I’d just be wasting my breath.
Agreed, one of my all-time favorite quotes.
what quote in particular? also, i’m very willing to try this cereal. once i’ve the money to fill a bowl with cadbury cream eggs. should i use the US or UK versions?
“The cause of – and solution to – all our problems” I believe the Simpsons were referring to beer, however
Yeah, its at the end of the prohibition episode i think
Anyone else thinking Monday will bring us the two of them in bed together? Oh why oh WHY did she have to pull the drama tag??
That, or both in bed separately, with Mike.
Nah, that gag’s been done before.
So we re-invent the gag. We show Robin waking up next to Mike, then we show Jake Manley waking up next to Mike, and finally we pan out and show that all three are in the same queen-size bed with Mike in the middle.
And then Mike says something like “I liked it better when your moms were where you are now.”
She’ll be in bed with Drew. He’ll be in bed with Leslie.
Good lord my teeth are aching just thinking about that stuff
I’m in this wierd place where I’m both excited to see what happens, but horrified by possibility of Leslie getting hurt. The emotional dissonance is actually a little painful. I’ve followed a lot of comics, and the weekend cliffhanger has never been a problem, but this one’s bugging me.
I don’t know what to do about this>.<
I hear that. It doesn’t help that the first couple of times he showed up, I was kind of hoping for them to have a “thing.” But Robin and Leslie right now are just so fantastic, and Leslie’s such a sweetie…Yeah, it hurts.
I’m holding my “DAMN YOU WILLIS.” in reserve until we see whether Leslie gets her heart broken. As much as I’d hate to see it happen, I can’t say it would surprise me much. Willis can be evil that way.
On another note, I totally want this to be a real cereal.
That happy snail of yours makes it really hard to imagine you’re crying.
Time to break out the doves.
…I just noticed the chapter title. “Bi Partisan”, not “bipartisan”.
I think I know what’s going to happen, now that I’ve noticed that.
God, how can either of them eat that stuff? I can’t even handle chocolate, it’s so sweet, and I pour salt on basically everything. o-o Well, Robin I can get, with her abductee powers, but…what is Manley, that he might even be trying that? Or is he just holding a second bowl in stead for her?
Blahhhhh, friday strips and cliffhangers. >|
I can totally picture this. Robin starts eating and Jake gets to watch as she speeds up more and more. Jake takes his first bite and just drops dead on the spot. Maybe spends a bit of time foaming at the mouth. Oops.
I hope this happens, though she’d probably eat the rest, get psychic powers or something (from the sugar), and restart his heart
Unless that milk is loaded with sugar, eating one bite shouldn’t do much to him. Trying to eat the whole bowl, however…
“BEHOLD! THE APOCALYPSE!”
“H-how did this happen?”
“YOU DID THIS ROBIN DESANTO! YOU DID THIS!”
She’s going to wake up as the Queen of Spain.
Will she be eating humble pie?
Moxy Fruvous reference FTW.
DUN DUN DUN
I will tried this and see if im a millionaire
She will wake up in bed with the guy. And DRAMA will return… because no comic (or webcomic) can stand a happy lesbian couple, and must do EVERYTHING possible to end them.
What, the series can’t end with everyone joined happily within polyamorous union? Robin gets Ethan and Amber, Ethan gets Mike, Jane plays with Willie, and Willis happy again?
Nice Peter Gabriel reference.
Thank you. It’s the curse of a random access memory.
Peter Gabriel haunts your synapses.
To be fair, this comic seems to follow the Joss Whedon law of relationships to some extent: Happy couples make bad TV, or, in this case, comics.
And . . . cue time jump!
I do believe the phrase “damn you, Willis!” can be applied here.
Also, I totally want to try that cereal, but the concept actually frightens me slightly.
I want to watch someone else try it.
From a safe distance…
I like to joke that I’m a “cereal killer.” First, I’ll take your Life – then I’ll take your Cap’n Crunch!
I can only assume this will lead to Mega-Robin, the unstoppable God-King focused on improving everything for everyone. Eventually, she will tire of our squabbling, and promptly remove the universe from existence.
Too bad she won’t remember sleeping with Mansley. I guess she’ll just have to wonder how it felt when she wakes up three months pregnant with his baby.
Heh. Should be using sweetened condensed milk in that.
She’s going to wake up naked next to white jacob
This isn’t that hard to figure out
She’s going to wake up to find Jake dead because, not being an abductee, instead of experiencing a time-jump he died of diabetes.
She wakes up from the sugar induced coma with diabetes and an unending urge to wiggle her big toe…
Robin destroys and recreates the universe. For the next comic, proceed here.
Because everyone knows that Robin is Haruhi Suzumiya…
Think about this for a moment. I could see Robin keeping a stash of Cadbury Eggs around for such a reason, but why would Jacob also keep a stash? Is this a congressional thing?
i think robin will somehow end up ruler of the world, and have a harem (but it’ll only be leslie and jake). brace for impact…its sorta exciting that 2 people are doing this this time
Robin will wake up in a hospital emergency room with Willy Wonka slapping her back into consciousness. She will discover that he was called in because of his amazing knowledge of how candy works. Mr Wonka was, in less than ten minutes, able to develop a brilliant experimental procedure to remove the sugar from her brain before it killed her and seriously injured some of the people within the twenty-six foot blast radius.
Mr Wonka will then rather ineptly inform her than Jacob is gone because he caught on fire before he could be helped but samples taken from his blazing remains were used to cure Robin. Robin will roll over on her side, and vomit out a half liter of sugary yolk and ask for a scary lawyer. Mr Wonka will say “Tee Hee!”.
Yes my friends! This is the future that is coming to you tomorrow! Criswell Predicts!
Homer Simpson sees what you did there.
I predict she’s going to sleep with him, thus shattering the facade of her faux-lesbian partnership.
DAMN YOU, WILLIS!!
With that out of the way, I forsee Robin waking up *back* in time to either right before she took the bite that put her in Congress, or right after so that we get to see/redo the missing time frame.
I was wondering if anyone would predict the Bobby Ewing Special. It makes everything else suggested seem rather less offensive, doesn’t it?
…oh, dear God. I just realized what month this is. DAMN YOU, FRANK CAPRA!!!
Didn’t she just swallow a living space time anomaly (or did she spit singularikitty back out in between strips?)
MY NAME IS ROBIN DESANTO, QUEEN OF QUEENS:
LOOK ON MY WORKS, YE MIGHTY, AND DESPAIR
I don’t like where this is going.
Good place to start raisin hell
…hold that pose. I need to fetch something heavy from the courthouse square.
She’ll wake up in the White House with three kids, a First Husband and a First Lesbian.
I approve of this.
almost expecting all of next week’s comics to be just the spoon getting inexorably closer to her mouth, panel by panel, and then Willis decides to take the rest of the year off
I’m betting that wasn’t the plan, but it is now. >_>
Man, and I just finished Monday’s comic. Dammit!
That wouldn’t be so bad. It would only be a 14 day vacation.
Will Robin ever cross of “sex with a man” off her list?
Pouring milk on something doesn’t change it into cereal. Especially not meat.
This is correct. The most important step is making sure you pour milk over it while it’s in a bowl.
There needs to be grain involved directly somehow or it fails the cereal text.
Hot dogs can be a tricky exception though.
And possibly grape nuts.
‘cept for pork cracklins.
Saw them labled “Meat Chips” so marketing is on the march!
Chicharrones con leche – mmmmmm, mmmmmmmmm, ….mrmphl !! I may puke at my own post
You guys know cadburys make a cream egg ice cream right?
Eating half a tub makes the world fizzy
This is a perfect metaphor.. America’s losing its greatness because it forgot what got us here.. totally batshit risky ventures like from the likes of Tesla and Edison. Remember when inventions didn’t have to have mass appeal, and be easy enough to sell on an infomercial? They didn’t have to involve pasta WHATSOEVER.
Edison? I didn’t know there was anything batshit about stealing an employee’s patents and taking all of the credit. About the only crazy thing he did was try to ruin alternating current’s reputation.
Yeah yeah everyone focuses on that. He tried to build a machine to talk to DEAD PEOPLE, man!
There’s an iPhone app for that now.
But Tesla actually built an earthquake machine.
I’ve actually done the Cadbury Egg cereal thing
It was quite delicious (took pictures too)
Now I’ve exhausted my supply down to two eggs until Easter >.>
Robin’s met her soulmate. Sorry Leslie.
governor? supreme court? pregnant but still a virgin?
How about all three?
Wait, lesbians don’t have sex?
Robin never got down and dirty with Leslie?
Thank you for coming along and lowering the I.Q. average for the entire Shortpacked audience by 20 points.
And hey, while Robin isn’t a virgin in lesbian sex, it could be argued that’s she is a virgin in regards man/woman sex.
Ladies and gentlemen, introducing the first female president of the United States, Robin DeSanto.
My Cadbury’s Cream Egg Pizza idea was a horrible failure. And I thought it was going to make me RICH too.
The Shark Tank investors LAUGHED at me. And then I got mad and I pee’d on them. Then they bought into 51% of my bladder’s production capacity for $80,000. They won’t show that episode on TV though. The FCC doesn’t like to show people people cussing and peeing on giggling venture capitalists.
No! You fools! You’ll unleash the Masogoan!
This will go terribly wrong. We’ll either wake up living in the Liberal Utopia (which can’t exist,) or the Conservative Utopia (which shouldn’t exist.)
Either way, it’s Elseworlds material. Which means Batman will need a new origin.
…. I’m gonna try this next easter just out of curiosity…
… *sniff sniff* Does the CEC smell like a superspeed wedding to anyone else?
I bet she didn’t lose the elections since when they saw it it was like 5% polls reporting or something super small.
Methinks they might be too similar to have any kind of function as a relationship. Though all bets are off in a cadbury egg cereal-induced frenzy.
I guess she should also refer to the walky of that universe as “Walkynate”
I once ate two dozen Lindt dark chocolate truffle candy bars with half a liter of bush mills. . . . Does that count? I can’t get my hands on that many cream eggs for a few more months
