Am I the only one who notices the SEMME shirt?
Nope. That was my first thought as well. Though the stripe’s only on the front, unless it’s a coloring error.
Uh, I definitely see the yellow stripe on the back in the third panel…
Must’ve been a coloring error, because it wasn’t there before.
Shit, would you look at that. No way that’s not gonna mean something.
Noticed it as well. Guess she used some connections.
Oh. My. God.
Since her super speed is due to eating sugar, I’m guessing the cereal accelerated her molecular vibrations and shifted her into another dimension.
Dumbing of Age ‘verse?
Oh shit, that didn’t even occur to me. I was thinking she used super speed and semme connections, but what if she did dimension shift?? that’d be crazy!
Its a Walkynate universe.
W-Wow. You’re right. That’s Robin’s SEMME outfit, down to the khaki capris and flip flops. Also, is she in New York? WHAT IS GOING ON?
No, it’s a swag shirt for Kit Kat Banana.
@ panels 2 & 3 it references that this story takes place in same walkyverse as roomies, its walky, and J&W, just with different main characters, as well as her mentioning to mike that she thought he was dead after the final battle. it should be no surprise that she has at least one semme shirt
But panel 2 here implies that Joyce is a celebrity.
…which …might be …explained by her being on the news and stuff…
she’s probably the cute ditsy girl they used to distract people while the rest of SEMME left (and i imagine robin could leave at Mach-level speeds, even w/o the addition of cadbury egg cereal)
Lol. So I guess she caused world peace and then snuck off to take a nap in a box on the side of a road?
I would love to see the “World Peace is for Gaywads” ad campaign.
The news ticker on the bottom is of interest to me. “Blank guy punched…”
I think it says “WikiLeaks guy punched…”
“Robin Puuunch! Show me your moves!”
That says “WIKILEAKS guy punched…”
wikileaks guy punched in (FAAAAACCE!)
I guessed at the last part.
I’m pretty sure it says “Ikileaks guy punched in…” Just sayin…
am i the only one who read that as “that was one hell of a blender”?
because i laughed for a good 2 minutes before going back and seeing i was wrong.
But, that’s probably exactly what Willis said when he opened his now infamous box o’ “books.”
I actually thought it said that too!!
found it really funny due to the whole half a blender thing
anywho.. just to rape peoples minds a bit more. check the third screen
kitkat has actually had banana for a long time
BROUGHT TO YOU BY COCA-COLA
If anything signifies world peace/the coming apocalypse, it’s that.
This was the true victory as world peace is probably easier to achieve then Coke and Pepsi supporting each other.
Kit Kat now in Banana! This is the perfect future!!!
Banana… flavored… Kit-Kats…
They have them in Japan. They’re pretty great.
I was just about to say that!
Whaaat!!?!!?!? Oh my god, I now have to go to Japan for even more reasons.
That does sound all kinds of awesome.
That is too awesome. They need them here for those who can not afford to fly to japan.
Yes, Japan has many different flavors of Kit Kat. They’re much more popular there than here (USA).
So… where did her partner in crime go?
He died after the second bite.
Ew, banana-flavored candy.
I mean, bananas are great, candy is great, SO WHY DON’T THEY GO TOGETHER IN A DELICIOUS FASHION?!
Cotton candy is great.
Bubblegum is great.
I once had Cotton Candy Flavored Bubblegum.
Have you ever wished for the sweet taste of vomit to wash your mouth out? I did.
I always thought it was pointless to make cotton candy flavor things. You’re modifying sugar to taste like sugar.
I’ve tried rice with crab flavored candy, ya got nothin’ on me kiddo! XD
Because the candy makers puss out and use FAKE BANANA FLAVOR that’s made of some kind of evil petrochemical plastic stuff that’ll eat your brain, instead of actual banana, and that makes it taste like ass.
I bet Robin took over the world and is ruling with an Iron Fist. Or maybe not as firm, so that would constitute a softer material, like maybe a Rubber Fist or something (I got nothin’.)
An asbestos fist?
You know how many people think Kevin Spacey is awesome?
Sorry. Couldn’t help myself.
Somehow, Mike was behind the attack on Julian Assange. I just know it.
I always thought Mike would be entertained by a guy embarrassing a bunch of powerful people.
Not that they’re kindred spirits or anything..
Well, you must remember, S.E.M.M.E. is one of those things that Mike would make sure didn’t come out in those Wikileaks. There’s that whole “coming back from the dead” that if it became general knowledge would be bad.
She’s gone back in time, of course.
I wonder if David knows that Kitkats have always been available in Banana flavor.
IN JAPAN ANYWAY. OOOOOOOOOOOOH. And Canada I hear but I can’t confirm this. But it is a real Kitkat flavor.
:O :O :O
(points up at response above posted one scant minute before this)
I live in Canada. Never seen it. Too bad about that.
Just wanted to say that as a Canadian, I have never seen nor heard of banana Kitkats. Unless they exist in places in Canada that I’m not in.
Ditto. Or at least the candy stores in Toronto don’t have them (and I’ve been to most of the candy stores, I think…)
nothing in winnipeg either.
Never seen them here in BC
If they’re in Canada they aren’t common. Maybe in the big cities? I’m in kind of a rural area these days.
Which is too bad because they sound awesome. I THIIIIIINK I remember seeing them in the local grocery store for about five minutes but they aren’t there anymore so maybe the flavour didn’t take off.
What they SHOULD have done was put boxes of 50 mini-banana bars on sale for like $2 each, about two weeks before Hallowe’en. EVERY parent would load up on them (because we’re all about what’s cheap more than what’s good), and then the kids would be stuffed with free samples (as would the parents– don’t tell me you don’t eat your kid’s candy because you do, you know it XD) and if they were at ALL decent people would go get more.
As it is I think I may have glanced at them (if I saw them at all and am not generating a false memory based on how awesome that sounds) and went, “Oh, banana. That sounds cool,” and forgotten about it about three steps later.
Banana flavoured Kit kats already exist >.>
b/c of you’re post i looked up all the flavors, and i think japan has every flavor conceivable, including: apple, yogurt, potato and cola & lemon squash flavors among others. i am both scared and intrigued by some of them
Apple flavored kit kats? *starts considering plane tickets*
I must try Soy Sauce flavored Kit Kats. I’m sure they taste horrible, but the fact that Nestle would have the balls to sell something like that and I’m scared of eating it is somehow putting my masculinity in question. I must overcome this.
Ooooh, and pumpkin flavored too! I like pumpkin.
I dunno, there’s a traditional Japanese sweet called mitarashi-dango that’s flavored with a sweet soy sauce syrup, and it tastes pretty good.
Dunno how well it’d go with chocolate, though…
Squash flavored? o.0
I am both horrified and disturbingly intrigued by this concept.
Not squash. Lemon squash. Lemon soda without the bubbles, is how I’d describe it (sold in Australia and I’m sure elsewhere as well).
I think Japan leads the world in bizarre food combinations, ESPECIALLY in desserts. You can get both mayonnaise and octopus ink-flavored ice cream in Tokyo.
Banana flavoured Kit-Kat’s?! Me want!
i now wish to try everything advertised on there, as well as cadbury egg cereal
Indeed, the Cadbury Cream Egg cereal MUST be invented!
I wonder how much time passed this time. I’m also wondering that if she DID manage to pull off World Peace… why is she sleeping in a box in the middle of Time Square.
Einstein worked out relativity while working in a patent office. Which was the early 20th century equivalent of “You have a worthless college degree, go be a waiter.”
Archimedes figured out how to find out if Hiero’s crown was gold while taking a bath.
This kinda follows.
Pepsi Too? Coca Cola? WHAT WORLD IS THIS. THIS IS MADNESS.
THIS IS BEOWULF!!
THIS IS SPARTA!
The Mike icons are appropriate.
Joebo’s looks like he’s yelling over arjay2813
This is a story all about how my life got flipped turned upside down and I’d like to take a minute just sit right there and I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town call Bell Air.
This is the story of a girl, who cried a river and drowned the whole world…
This is the story of a lovely lady, who was bringing up three very lovely girls…
This is the story of a time long ago, A time of myth and legend, when the Earth was still young. The ancient gods were petty and cruel, and they plagued mankind with suffering…
Does this mean that their world has Arrested Development back on the air?
And Firefly lasted five seasons before coming to a reasonable and satisfying conclusion without killing off any characters people liked.
Wouldn’t both those shows require Robin going back in time? Why not “And the next series by Joss Whedon not getting canceled after a season and a half.”
In this universe, Whedon has already given up on tv and is writting for 3 different webshows, all of which are insanely successfull and profitable by fangasm power alone.
In a few years he will have another power to buy Fox.
I don’t think there’s a power in the ‘Verse that can stop Whedon from killing off well-liked characters…
That’s why I think a promising way to start a work of fiction is by having the characters discuss how Mr. Whedon just died and how they feel about it. You start off by getting both death and Mr. Whedon out of the way, so that all the characters can turn out fine.
Maybe you’ll even have women who look like they’d be able to fight in the fight scenes.
No, because this is a good world.
I demand an online campaign to bring banana kit-kats to America. Let’s make this happen, people!
Don’t like Bananas, don’t like Kit-kats. So I could care less if we had banana flavored Kit-Kats in America.
Thanks for that
Don’t you mean “I couldn’t care less”? Otherwise you’re saying you do care about banana flavored kitkats.
Eh, I’ve heard it both ways for both meanings.
That doesn’t make it any more correct.
This is actually the start of the SP!/Fringe crossover. Those weren’t Cadbury… they were cortexaphan!
Thanks for that.
Now I’ll go write my fanfic about Walter running a cash register in a toy store. While on LSD.
There will be a cow. And Astrid will price check.
Joebo, please let us love Fringe, while it still lives.
It’s time is short.
Not smacking for Fringe, smacking for use of “this” it is lazy and dumb. Those of you who comment on DoA should have seen similar tirades from me there.
“THIS” is neither lazy nor dumb. It’s *succinct*. Brevity at its finest.
Lazy or dumb is wrtng lk ths u no? 4 sr. totes.
However, if you insist: “I support this recommendation of a crossover between the Shortpacked! and Fringe universes, for surely it will make for riveting drama and humorous situations. The fact that Agent Dunham causes an elevated heart rate, flushing of the cheeks, and an involuntary ‘hoo!’ escaping from my lips surely has no bearing on my support of this crossover event.”
Lol. BBT reference.
Remember kids! Brevity…is wit.
Holy crap, this just registered.
Leonard Nimoy shows up as William Bell, but then gets turned into Galvatron by Unicron.
This gives us an excuse for a Judd Nelson guest spot.
So I’m guessing Robin cured all the world’s problems except homelessness? All the background characters look kind of bummed out in both senses of the word, and Robin just woke up in a cardboard box. Everyone should be happy but they’ve lost all motivation and now it’s always warm and everyone’s houses got turned into orphanages.
Anyone else got any theories?
Speculation is fun, but we will find out gradually?
I speculate Ronald Regan battled Galvatron in Uruguay.
I’d suspect that’s just where Robin crashed, most of the other characters seem to be in standard winter gear.
I don’t know. Uruguay just seems fun to say.
Kevin Spacey IS kinda awesome
Kinda awesome? KINDA awesome? Kevin Spacey is ALL KINDS of Awesome! NEVER, EVER forget that.
My theory is that Robin hasn’t even noticed the “World Peace” sign yet and is actually reacting to the Kit Kat ad.
Well, thank God that’s over. All the problems are finished and there’s no more controversy to be had, ever, for anything.
I’ll miss ya Shortpacked!; good to know everything worked out well for you.
I just want 2know what crazy-a$$ adventures does she goes on when she takes her’s sugar trips (cuz i want to experience them)
Get some cadbury cremes and mix em with a bit of milk and find out.
“And Dr Pepper too!”
Dogs and cats living together… MASS HYSTERIA!!
World Peace? Unless Mike is drunk off his ass 24/7 there is no such thing.
That was actually Robin’s entire solution. Provide Mike with an everlasting IV drip of alcohol, create world peace.
Although SEMME presence usually indicates a distinct lack of peacey-ness. Hopefully that was just the only clean shirt she had left.
Why isn’t there a comma after ‘Pepsi’? It makes Pepsi Too seem like a new type of Pepsi.
The fault in your question lies in the assumption that advertising companies employ proper copyeditors.
It’s actually a trick. Pepsi Too is a soda made by Coca-Cola after Robin repealed all trademark laws while on her sugar bender.
This utopia will last only until Robin discovers that there are no more Cadbury eggs in it. In desperation, she is forced to consume a bowl full of Faberge eggs, thereby changing the world into a place that has fallen under the rule of Tsarist Russia.
Because in Tsarist Russia, the communists don’t make jokes out of you.
What I’m most afraid of is IF this world peace thing turns out to be legitimate, HOW Robin or Jake succeeded
Hmmm… if she has gone back in time, maybe she can stop herself from pulling the Drama Tag…
Or this could just be the dream that’s supposed to show Robin how to accomplish world peace. THEN she’ll wake up next to Jake, and forgets to write it down.
I assume Coca Cola and Nestle aren’t evil anymore? And don’t kill trade unionists and push milk formula on mothers in developing countries?
She’s probably unconcious or something. Her metabolism isn’t what it was a few years back and the cereal’s nearly killed her off.
This is merely some sort of hallucinogenic dream.
President. Sydney. Yus.
You heard it here first.
The reveal will be that Robin had nothing to do with World Peace, but did get the Kevin Spacey ad put up.
Yay World Peace!! on my birthday too!
This is obviously a sugar-induced hallucination . . . Coke telling people to drink Pepsi? Yeah, OKAY. THAT would TOTALLY happen.
This so reminds me of the hangover movies
