“IT’S MAKING ME NOT BUY GAMES NOOOOOO”
And she hasn’t mentioned the ninja turtles in ages.
Or My Little Pony
It is warping your mind! It truly is Mike’s spawn.
“Tummy Toad”=best way to refer to a fetus ever.
Sounds just as bad as a cane toad.
And not at all as well liked as the camel toad.
“Would you walk a mile for a camel toad?”
Or the Hypnotoa- GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD!
It’s eating you alive from the inside out!
And yet the title of the previous storyline works here.
I really like the angle on the panels in this one. Kudos!
If that doesn’t prove it’s Mike’s, then nothing will.
I guess her opinion on the issue of Derpy Hooves is also way down on her list of priorities.
welcome to the next 16 years of your life amber
My mum would have to agree with that comment
Only 16 years? Get with the times, man. In today’s society, childhood and dependence on parents to the extent of consuming vast quantities of their time, money, and attention lasts until at LEAST 25.
Of course, by the time tummy-toad is that age, childhood will last until 32.
i say 16 cause thats around the time they start getting jobs so you dont have to buy all their crap for them. thus allowing you to have a little more cash for what ever
Ahahahaha, yeah, kids today TOTALLY place a high priority on financial independence and earning their own money.
Oh man, that was great.
Games or baby – games or baby…
Looks like that baby’s gotta go…
Given that it’s Mike’s baby, I doubt she could get rid of it even if she wanted to…
“Oh, the brat came back, the very next day…”
“With a chainsaw. A bloody chainsaw.”
“In a suspected case of anti-choice extremism, Amber O’Malley was arrested today for killing three abortion clinicians. ‘No, really, my tummy toad did it, not me! He’s a lot more violent than you’d think!’ she claimed. Her attorneys are looking at an insanity defense…”
On a related note, I bought Skyrim yesterday.
Yesterday. Almost three months after it came out.
I hope this doesn’t mean I’m pregnant. That would be awkward to explain, as I’m a dude.
*cue chestburster in 3… 2… 1…*
if anything, i admire your will to resist such temptations. i only lasted a month.
I didn’t even last that long. The game didn’t arrive at my house until 5 PM on release day.
More important things to spend money on than Super Mario 3D Land? Blasphemy.
Food, petrol/gas, other games, home etc.
He said IMPORTANT THINGS.
I got nothing.
Including humor, I see.
The sound of a needle scratching a record was the sound effect that played in my head for the second panel.
You too? O_O
Amber, you’re finally entering that magical time known as adulthood.
And may God have mercy on your soul.
Don’t you mean “May Dab have mercy on her soul” (http://www.shortpacked.com/2011/comic/book-13/05-the-death-of-snkrs/dab/)
Most certainly not, for Dab has no mercy.
May Dab’s judgement be swift rather than drawn-out.
But wouldn’t that be considered merciful?
Not at all. Time simply has little or no meaning to Dab, and even a second under his direct attention is as an eternity of suffering.
Truly it is Mike’s child if its taking away one of the great joys from Amber’s life: Super Mario.
…. in another store? What?
Judging from the decor, I think it’s a Target.
Thank you, Amber! But Super Mario 3D Land is in another store!
Huh. Is it just the angle of the last panel, or is Amber really that much shorter than Ethan?
For extra emphasis she might’ve fallen to her knees.
…like your mom.
For a nickel.
I suppose it’s better than “the parasite,” which was how my wife referred to each of ours when they would give her an in-utero hard time.
The term makes more sense when you realise that sperm is often known as tadpoles.
Ah, so this was Mike’s plan all along.
Surprised she’s not said word one about the new Ninja Turtles that are coming out, especially that original cartoon design version that’s ridiculously articulated.
http://www.toyark.com/news/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-toy-news-42/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-classics-video-5294/ for anyone who’s not seen yet. Playmates actually made toys with articulation, I was shocked. Their mainline foot soldier, strangely, is the brickiest of what they show for whatever reason.
Doesn’t Amber know there’s technology that allows fetuses to play Nintendo DS through wireless?
if ethan doesn’t buy the game for her immediately, he’s a terrible person.
I have my priorities… always have. I want one of those kinect dance games.. but I wanted skyrim more. I bought skyrim and I still pick diapers, formula, gas, food for us, and other important bills before the game. Being an adult sucks… but I have to save up money to get mass effect 3 when it comes out.
you should ask for more allowance.
What has it done? It’s given you [gasp] different priorities. :p
These guys play games? First time I have heard, in over 5 years.
Amber is a big Mario fan. She went crazy searching for New Super Mario Brothers when it came out, was distraught when there weren’t enough waves of a Mario toyline to satisfy her desires, has sung the Super Mario Bros Super Show theme song in the shower, and had a dream about Stanley the Talking Fish.
Incidentally, it just occurred to me that I have read the archives of this strip far too many times.
Amber really reminds me of my older sister, who has beaten Mario Bros 3 when she was 5, is currently collecting every comic out there that has just a seer mention of anything Mario in it ((top points for it if it has Bowser)), and has toys and clothes of it as well as all the game stations and Game Boys known to man.
Hormones must suck for pregnant ladies!
It’s like five years of puberty crammed into EVERY MONTH. >< Wheeeee.
“Tummy Toad” might be the single greatest phrase thought up by man.
It would also be an awesome band name.
Tummy Toad: from the author of Perverse Sexual Lust!
But what would the Tummy Toad trope be exactly?
I’m really curious to see how the baby turns out in this kind of universe.
That being said, Willis better as hell not go the Tim “Drawing Babies is too Hard” Buckley route. (OK, so he never said that, but I’ll bet it’s a reason >_>)
I think their kid will be the ultimate killing/badassery/assholery machine.
Said with one of the best characters as his avi
Hey Willis, when are you going back to commenting on the illustrated Bible on your Tumblr? I’m too young to be a fan of transformers! (Or too old, depending on your perspective). So I don’t really get any of your toy posts :/
That’s how i’m going to refer to fetuses from now on. Tummy toads.
not about the strip but someone has been reading it and apparently modeled a character off of Glasso in a NSFW(for language) kind of way
That was pretty funny, didn’t really remind me of Galasso though.
Draining your money my dear! And taking your attention away from the things that matter.
And here I thought she’d be walking back into the last panel with a handful of “My Little Pony” toys.
Does anyone else hate those retarded webcomic ads that are just boobs, ass, and sexual innuendo? We get it. Your webcomic sucks so bad that the only way you can get views is with porn. I wish webcomic giants like Willis would use their pull to put a stop to this idiotic trend. Maybe reject ads that are completely stupid and suggest to the ad-maker that they try being actually creative.
I really appreciate those ads- they do a splendid job of telling me I don’t need to read those comics. Time: Saved! It’s a bonus if the comics I’ll never care to read pay to support the ones I do.
I am not female nor pregant, but I can personally relate to all this. Health comes first..unfortunately.
OH SHIT. I started at the beginning and now I’m out of Shortpacked comics! WHAT DO I DO NOW?!?
Have you read Roomies/It’s Walky/Joyce and Walky and Dumbing of Age?
Don’t worry, my parnets were huge gamers back when I was a little kid. My existance didn’t stop them from play NES and SNES.
My friend introduced me to this comic with this very post back in February. I went back to read the entire series and just got to this point. Since this is my very first comment, I just gotta say I like this comic a lot. Thanks Dave Willis
