Classic Joe… awesome story I see coming…
They dont?! Well.. that explains things.
Well… to be honest, some do. But you should avoid them.
Is true. I developed my trolling skills in order to get out of unwanted sex.
Behold the Wisdom of Joe: The sexually unsettling Obi-Wan Kenobi of the Walky-verse
So wait, Congress managed to successfully repeal world peace?
Yeah, the ending of “This Is SO Babies” implied that it wouldn’t survive for long.
They didn’t outright repeal it, but you’ll now be forced to view a sonogram and hear the heartbeat of your conflict before seeking a peaceful solution
yup, peace is bad for the job market.
That mnakes sense, the Weapons Manufacturing Lobby Groups have a great deal of influence after all and World Peace is bad for business.
So… is the patch of blue you managed to tag that you mentioned a few weeks ago?
That was probably referring to Amber’s shirt tucked between/behind background characters in an old DoA strip. I don’t have that kind of buffer on SP!.
Joe is reliving SO many memories in panel 6.
And THAT is why Joe broke up with…freckle face.
…the name escapes me, sorry.
Rachel? Same name as the tubby Rachel from SEMME?
They couldn’t even repeal Romneycare-for-all, but this passed?
Considering what would actually involve “legislating world peace” among the numerous squabbling cultures of earth, the radiation poisoned survivors scraping out a living among the decimated ruins of everywhere else on Earth were probably more than happy to see the disappearance of “World Peace Keepers”.
Literally “Job killing” you see. Why the tech sector alone practically collapsed once India went up in an escalating series of mushroom clouds….
You not thinking out the box enough – maybe Robin ran around renaming all the countries so no one knew who they were declaring war on.
Or she swapped whole populations around when no one was looking (ok, entering flash-level stupidly fast terrority here).
Bit hard to declare war against “them” when suddenly your populations are mixed together.
nah, when the ethnic and cultural groups are all mixed together, that’s when you go from war to ethnic cleansing.
People are dicks.
nah, because she mixed the people in charge too (as well as any soldiers/police etc).
People are dicks, but fortunately all dicks about different things. Just gota make sure you can’t get a big group of one dicks demonising another group.
Yes Joe… you cannot fix a girl being upset with your penis.
@Brendan: It was a ‘jobkilling law’… Yus was a bitch and pulled every string she could.
Well uh at least they gave peace a chance….for a couple weeks…
Y’know, given that he’s on record as having no interest in Joeing Robin, I have to wonder why his mind went there…
People change. Maybe Robin’s a bit more Joeable now?
It’s Joe. His mind ALWAYS goes there…
Joe did have some interest in joeing Robin, back in the day. Before he met Rachel. They had a couple of moments together, I seem to recall.
Robin Really wanted Joe to Joe her, and Joe was going to Joe her but then Joe Joe’d Rachael who also wanted to be Joe’d by Joe.
It’s not about his mind going there; it never comes *back* from there.
I think he’s just explaining why he bothered to learn how to tell when someone’s upset–but by apparent coincidence it actually happens to be relevant to Robin’s situation.
Robin is totally doing the Venture Bros face in panel 6
…the Venture Bros face is the face Mike’s been making since 1987?
Face it, Willis, Doc Hammer and Jackson Publick are more famous than you.
Who are Doc Hammer and Jackson Publick?
I’ve never heard of them. so, guess not.
They’re the creators of the Venture Brothers, an Adult Swim cartoon which reduces both me, my boyfriend, and, I suspect, a large proprtion of the population, to tears of laughter.
Thanks, Joe, but Robin already learned that one the hard way.
Hey does Joe even know Robin was dating Leslie?
Also Joe’s beard is ace.
Insufficient data. They might have met at Joyce and Walky’s wedding. He seems to focus on a few key facts he does know about his old friends to pretend he’s not as self-involved on a day-to-day basis as he is.
You know, this is a question that may or may not have been asked way back when the story was introduced, but since I’m too lazy to look, I have to ask: How exactly does the United States Congress invoke and repeal World Peace of all the other nations, without somehow taking control of them? Or do they not get a say in the matter?
World peace doesn’t involcev other nations, as WWF doesn’t involve any relations with other national wrestling federations, or more seriously, as World Series are just north-american baseball teams. Face it, in the media America is the world, just like Africa is a country!
Yeah, but here’s the thing: World Peace in this case involved THE WORLD. They stated this plan of Robin affected the ENTIRE WORLD, not just the United States.
Robin and Jake Manley wrestled with that aspect of the question. They solved it… somehow.
I’m under the impression that it somehow involved Dennis “If we just create the Department of Peace, then everything will be butterflies and unicorn farts… oh, and ban chemtrails and mind-control space weapons” Kucinich.
Ultra Car has a tag for the strip, but his only appearance in it is a part of his windshield in the second panel.
And yet,had he not been tagged,someone would have pointed out that he has a part of his windshield in the second panel and should be tagged =p
It was actually misspelled in the legislation as “Whirled Peas” and so it was easy to repeal.
Vegitarians sing: “AAaallll we are say-aying… is give Peas a chaaaance!”
That is a line from an Arrogant Worms song.
Since I first heard that joke 35 years ago, I can safely say it likely predates The Arrogant Worms.
If Robin keeps up with this “Yeah. Really. Great. Uh-hm.” attitude, she will revert to Spider-man 3 Emo Robin!
<- And we wouldn't want that, would we?
Actually no. It’s a good occasional bit, but if she does it all the time, then it’s not going to be that entertaining anymore.
Everything Robin’s said so far is just dripping with bitterness, but especially “Yeah, it was totally worth it.”
Oh, and hey, Emo Robin’s theory was pretty much validated in her case. The only thing she got wrong was her guess about what “the most emo thing that could happen” would actually be.
The theory’s more flawed when you try to apply it to Ethan and Amber, who are actually doing BETTER than they were before Robin pulled the drama tag. But Robin’s never been that comfortable with personal change. Too bad, because she’s pretty much got no other option now.
I’m fairly new to the comic, I discovered it about 2 months ago, read all of the older strips, and I’ve just started Its Walky but I gotta ask, didn’t Joe have a darker tan back in Its Walky?
So, she’s upset… and goes to see… JOE??
Well, the first thing she did before leaving the family was toss on her SEMME shirt. This is Robin, she’s clearly so mindshocked by all the change in her life that she’s tracing back to what she knows she is, or was.
I was going to ask why she didn’t visit her friends in Squad 82. Then it occurred to me that maybe they didn’t survive the martian invasion.
Joe has much to teach us. I must take notes!
All that Joe has to teach us can be narrowed down to three words:
BOOBIES. ARE. AWESOME.
Stay classy, Joe. Stay classy.
Joe’s gonna fix her up. With his penis.
Wait, was Joe offering to Joe Robin? I thought he said he was never going to do that.
NOT EVEN UP THE ASS
Maybe if Mike would stop beating up the giant monsters and just let them eat everyone peace would last.
Oh older bearded Joe, how I’ve missed you.
It’s amazing how much of the sensitivity Joe gained by the end of It’s Walky! has regressed by this point. It will turn out all right, but the results should be hilarious for us
I guess I was still irritated and puzzled by Joe’s regression at this point to notice, but as an All in the Family fan I am obligated by law to be amused by the word meathead.
And suddenly I remember Rachel. Is their breakup something that happened in-strip? If so, which one?
