Again, I reiterate:
Mike knows he’s not built for comfort, so he stayed out to avoid hurting Amber more.
Makes sense to me. I’m absolute rubbish at anything requiring emotional expression, so I tend to stay out of the way lest my innate snarkiness, black humor and general level of assholery make things worse.
We should start a club, if only so that my wife can understand that I’m not actively trying to be an asshole.
There’s no danger of Mike becoming a SNAG anytime soon.
Considering that it’s Mike, leaving her alone was probably the kindest thing he could do.
You just know he had much worse alternatives.
Agreed – for Sober Mike, staying away was downright caring and supportive.
I wonder if the beverage he is currently drinking is alcoholic or not…
Checks aren’t rosy, so I’m thinking no.
ahahaha accidentally put the font at Dumbing of Age size. Fixing now.
There are three certainties in life: Death, taxes and Mike fucking your mom.
But what would happen if they took nickels out of circulation?
You’re mom would lower the price.
Dammit, “your” not “you’re.”
That will only make it funnier when Mike continues to leave them.
Wooden Nickles, printed to order, are commonly available at Advertising Specialty suppliers.
WILLIS: If you get these printed with YOUR MOM and some sort of Bank of Mike image I WILL BUY A LOT! LIKE ALL OF THEM
I would imagine at that point he’d just start getting 2 for 1 deals & start using dimes
So, gravity is an uncertainty in life?
There is no gravity. You just don’t realize that your feet are magnetic.
As long as you pay the gravity tax, you’re good.
Gravity is just a theory. Haven’t you heard of Intelligent Falling yet?
You never know. You might get shot into space.
It also seems like Robin’s shirt lost the slogan. Unless she changed to an otherwise-similar shirt using her super-speed.
i cant tell if mike’s last comment is unnecessary, funny, but it works for him
there should be an “or” after unnecessary, not a comma
Oh, Robin, Robin.
Don’t you know that at times of loss, people find comfort in those things that never change? For some, it’s the passage of the seasons. For others, it’s the laughter of young children at play.
For Amber, it’s the assholery of Mike. Would you deny her that comfort?
In other words, if Mike wanted to be a major asshole to Amber at this time, he should act all sensitive, thus freaking her out even more?
QUICK MIKE, TO THE LIQUEUR CABINET!
But that wouldn’t freak her out, because she knows drunkMike is nice.
Which is why he needs to do it while sober.
Ah, see, Mike helpfully explains his gestures to those who can’t be bothered to look. He IS considerate!
Mike got GEOGRAPHICAL on Robin’s ass!
Hmm, yes. Yes, this visual pleases me.
the only visual i got was mike drawing an actual map on robin’s ass.
i have a strange mind…
That’s the one!
since when is Mike a tattoo artist?
Hey, Mike is drinking at the moment. Maybe he’s working up to giving Amber a more appropriate response shortly.
I think the reason why Mike did not try to comfort Amber is that, well, he’s an asshole and he knows that his attitude will not give Amber comfort. Let’s be honest here, unless he’s intoxicated, he will not have anything nice to say to her.
That is quite a lot of fucking your mom received. Was it still only a nickel? Bargain, man!
Two pennies. Filled out his punch-card, and got it for a discount.
Mike: And not a single fuck was given that day.
Mike’s downing a tall glass of whiskey. Thats major consideration points on his part.
i’ve had hamsters and gerbils cremated. the crematorium back where i used to work in NY even sold miniature urns, so i’ve got all these 3′ tall urns….. where i am now in maryland, all pets under 50lbs get the same (very nice) wooden box. so i have a shelf full of mini urns along with almost shoe box sized wooden boxes that hold hamsters/gerbils and cats. it’s weird.
quick, find the necronomicon and raise yourself an undead army of pets!
THE WORLD SHALL BE YOURS WITHIN THE WEEK!!
Stay classy, Mike.
Mike knows to stay away. Amber is her father’s daughter. When emotional, she hits those she loves (and like her father, she’s always soooooooo sorry and really/truly loves you).
Amber is her father’s daughter, which is why she’s hooked up with Mike.
Robin, do you seriosly wanted Mike there at that moment?
Mike: World’s Kindest Asshole
Why exactly is Robin surprised by this information? How long has she known them again?
Mike knows how to make matters worse…which always makes his day better
Ah Mike, the lovable D**khead…
Hmm, doesn’t look like alcohol to me. More like coke, you know, the stuff you put ice in to cool it down. Ice you get from the freezer… ohh, Mike, you magnificent bastard.
My first thought was that Mike’s drink was some form of smoothie. Y’know various frozen goods blended. As in frozen things from the freezer blended.
Ewwwww…… I will say it again … eeeewwwwwww…… I was never one for tartar anything, so …. eeewwwwww.
BUT HE’S STILL SO TOTALLY PERFECT FOR AMBER AND NOT AN IRREDEEMABLE SHIT!!!!!!
Ahh Classic Mike…
For some reason I was expecting Mike to come back across the panel with snkrs floating in his drink.
Lost a hamster, gained a novelty drink cooler.
Pregnancy and dying pets. This chapter doesn’t have much I can relate to.
Ah well. I’m sure hijinks will resume soon enough. I can wait.
Hamsters aren’t real pets unless you are a crazy person. They are about two steps up from tropical fish.
The only thing that surprises me is that Robin is surprised. She knows Mike.
Clearly, even panicky and grieving, Amber has the good sense not to turn to Mike for comfort.
Ah, Garth, you beat me to it. I was going to write, “Robin’s met Mike, right?”
Soooo . . . Did Robin replace her boobs with a giant Toblerone bar? Because that chestal region looks pretty darn triangular.
How long do you think ROBIN could possibly keep a Toblerone bar in her possession without devouring it?
It’s a cartoon. Cartoon proportions.
I know the “Robin thinks dead Snkrs is food” thing was just a joke, but now that he’s actually in the freezer, I could easily imagine a humorous misunderstanding.
Okay, I’m going to be positive today. I like how Robin’s been in this story, especially today’s strip. She’s relatively calm, supportive and affectionate, hasn’t made anything about her and has registered fucked upness.
Though somehow I don’t think putting the thing Robin’s already mistaken for food into the freezer, home of the food, is a good idea.
Do…do people actually put their dead pets in the freezer? Is this a common practice? Because I was expecting Robin to look at her funny at the very least when Amber mentioned that, but considering the way she reacted I’m left to assume that…people actually do this?
Putting it in the freezer is how you keep dead meat fresh. Try it!
Yes, but presumably this done with meat you intend on eating. Then again, I’ve never cremated a pet before. The backyard of my childhood home is a mini pet cemetery though. All of our pets were buried pretty much right away.
Still, it seems kinda weird.
I like Amber’s squiggly mouth *www*
It’s very Peanuts, isn’t it?
Mike is eating a hamster smoothie, isn’t he.
She put it in the freezer…..Mike is going to be serving Honey Baked Hamster for Thanksgiving, isn’t he? D:
Mike uses whatever brought him back to resurrect Snkrs. Snkrs Comes Back Wrong. Drama / hijinks ensue.
Gotta say, Robin has an excellent shirt.
People take small, dead animals to the vet?
Wouldn’t a shoebox, some tissues and a short sermon in an area with dirt be more suitable?
Well, I guess vets need to train post-mortem too.
