What about gravity-defying hair? Can you throw that on, too?
Will she be fucking moms or dads?
Why do you suppose she’d be so limited as to pick one? Mike just has a preference towards moms, we don’t know if he won’t go for dad’s if that’s what was presented.
Mike’s sexuality is whatever you don’t want him to be.
Well, of course she’ll be fucking Moms. This is Shortpacked. Heterosexuality has no place here!
I feel this comment has a paradox somewhere with the fact that it was posted on a comic based around two heterosexuals looking at the baby they made together.
But ya there are very few aren’t there?
well, one heterosexual and one bisexual… but whatever.
Aaaaactually, that’s one heterosexual and one force of nature.
Birds fly, grass grows, the sun shines, and Mike is an asshole.
And bruddah? Mike hurts people.
He doesn’t even know where to start with you. He’s kind of a big deal.
Oh Mike. The only guy who can pretty much get away with calling his girlfriend a cheating whore, in so many words.
You mean his fiancee.
Which makes it worse.
^^ Cute kid
I call a bluff! This baby doesn’t look like the one on the cast page!
Babies only look like that for so long, you know.
You mean that picture on the Cast page doesn’t age in real time?
I’ve wasted many weeks hitting the Refresh button, then.
The cast page picture looks more like I’d imagine Mike’s child, though. >_>
Well, going by the pic on the cast page, it looks like Draygon from Super Metroid is the father.
Good gravy I thought panel 1 was The Ring.
Well, this is mike’s daughter we’re taliking about
Yes, Mike. She needs to learn to scowl.
I think she might be practicing a scowl if you look closely – awwwww already preparing for her future as a force of nature – or a demi-force of nature; not sure if there is actually a term for that….
I’m sure daddy will be very proud – or the Mike equivalent of pride…
I imagine it’s either Scide or Prowl he’ll be feeling.
The average father loves his daughter enough to protect her from the world. Mike will love his daughter enough to teach her to make the world want protection from her.
Now that’s real quality parenting right there.
This should be very interesting. It would be easier for Mike to handle a son, but a daughter could wear him down.
How will he draw eyebrows on her? By shoving his hand up the you know where?
That’s what I was thinking.
Hey, maybe Amber’s actually into that, we don’t know what their sex life is like.
I shutter to think…
Hate sex. Non stop hate sex
..I thought he meant he’d draw eyebrows on the ultrasound picture. But now I can’t unsee this other possibility.
This. This is exactly why I didn’t say he’d draw on the monitor.
Amber without glasses looks cute, especially in panel 3.
Though I’m mildly surprised that any Mikespawn doesn’t already have a scowl and angry eyebrows and gravity defying hair even in the fetal stage.
You just know she’s gonna be Daddy’s little girl DD
So, little Michelle(possible name for the baby) is going to fuck dad’s for a nickel?
Love your comment Kasamari. Sums their relationship up nicely.
I hope I get a new gravatar soon……yuck.
I think the random gravatar is based on a hash of your username, so as long as you have the same username you’ll get the same avatar (unless of course you supply your own custom gravatar).
As far as I understand it hashes your email.
Just go to http://www.gravatar.com and make one. It takes no time at all.
I think it uses your IP. I have a different one on each of the computers I use.
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE BABY GIRL.
I can’t wait until she reaches the dateable age. How many teenage boys will Mike make cry…?
How many teenage boys will she make cry?
All of them. All the teenage boys.
cos she will kick them all…
In the balls…
For a dollar!
Oh dear has inflation taken off.
Nickels may be ok now, but in the future, she might want to charge more, besides, who wants to deal in small change?
I’m calling it now- Amberbaby is eventually going to hook up with Faz.
So we know it’s a girl. Right then. This limits the pool of potential punny names significantly.
My bet’s on Anita. Anita Warner.
Mike will want to name her Amber which will seem sweet until it becomes known that he also insists her middle name be Alert.
I vote they name it Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop.
But it still won’t look like Johnny Depp
I read that news story, but it still sounds like something Warpath would name his kid.
Malcolm Peter Brian Telescope Adrian Umbrella Stand Jasper Wednesday (pops mouth twice) Stoatgobbler John Raw Vegetable (sound effect of horse whinnying) Arthur Norman Michael (blows squeaker) Featherstone Smith (blows whistle) Northgot Edwards Harris (fires pistol, which goes ‘whoop’) Mason (chuff-chuff-chuff) Frampton Jones Fruitbat Gilbert (sings) ‘We’ll keep a welcome in the’ (three shots, stops singing) Williams If I Could Walk That Way Jenkin (squeaker) Tiger-draws Pratt Thompson (sings) ‘Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head’ Darcy Carter (horn) Pussycat ‘Don’t Sleep In The Subway’ Barton Mannering (hoot, ‘whoop’) Warner…
Mind you I am not that enamored with Malcolm as a girls first name.
Due to a webcomic I read, I can’t get the idea of naming a girl “George” out of my head. I also know I’d be a bad parent because I’d want to name my child something that abbreviates androgynously (Alex, Sam, Joe, et cetera) but use the one meant for the opposite sex (Male: Alexandra, Female: Alexander).
Wow! Their baby is FAST!
Well, Robin did help make it.
I want to see panel 5 and 6 where Mike draws the eyebrows on and is then forced to concede the child is his.
KILL IT WITH FIRE
Mike is going to be an amazing father.
Amazing? Are you sure that’s the right word for him?
Well, protective at least.
Boyfriend worries Mike will hate him – he is everything you don’t want him to be. For a nickel.
You can’t see her hands. If she has fingers yet, I bet she’s flipping the bird.
Why does the inside of Amber’s womb look like a Colon????
you can’t wear glasses during an ultrasound?
also, did mike shave off amber’s eyebrows? she looks weird in panels 2 and 3. at least he drew them back on for the last panel.
I notice Amber doesn’t say Mike has to be the father as he’s the only one she’s banged.
I like how Amber does a “Mike scowl” when she talks about Mike’s eyebrows.
When my wife and I went to the sonogram, the first view of our little girl was profile with her pinky and index finger up. She hasn’t been born and knows how to rock out! come Feb 15th or so, she’ll rock the world!
Amber cuteness with a core of Mike evil? The world is not ready!
Maybe I’ll read The Bad Seed again, it’s been ages. I’d just watch the old movie, but what are the odds of finding that on somewhere?
Considering genetic makeup, personality traits, and gender I think the kid is going to be like Helga Pataki.
The ultra sound is the best part of being pregnant.
Ahhhh to be that ultrasound technician. I actually wonder if they get a lot of dads who say “how do you know its mine?”
I guess Amber’s prescription isn’t very strong.
Amber’s near-sighted. She has trouble, for example, seeing Giant Mutant Frosted Honey Buns from a distance, but a monitor next to her bed wouldn’t be so bad.
Well at least Mike’s getting into it. As only he can …
I really REALLY want to see Mike’s reaction to birth.
So then, is Jacob going to imprint on the baby?
I’m not sure what’s worse: that you said that or that I understood it.
My brain just broke a little bit.
Only comment, real ultrasound images are no where near that clear.
Scrubs lied to me once again!
Are you telling me that you have never seen a real ultrasound of a baby, not even on any of those (non-comedic) medical shows?
I have. I even looked them up while doing the comic. But I didn’t especially care if they were inaccurate in this fashion, preferring to provide a better image of the fetus, similar to the one in the Scrubs episode scene I looked at to see if there was any kind of machinery I needed to draw that would be conspicuous if absent. (Surprise, if you look up “ultrasound” on Google, you get a whole lotta ultrasounds, but not a whole lotta images of pregnant ladies getting ultrasounds. That’s not the part of the doctor visit that people take home images of, or are allowed by their pregnant partners to upload to the Internet.)
But in a world where Martians attacked 7-8 years ago and the US government has machines that bring people back to life and the military has giant robot mechs, I figger I was allowed a fancier ultrasound imagery.
Oh, sure, you think you can make things up in this world, just because you’re God.
At least he doesn’t have sonic universal plot devices XD
So much Tardis love.
Amber is 3 weeks less pregnant than my wife so I am following these with considerable amusement. They’re lucky to have gender at 23 weeks. Our baby was extremely uncooperative and/or modest.
Total fan nerdery here, but are abductee superpowers inheritable? IIRC, they have a basis in Martian DNA. A baby that’s half Amber (Human, secretly Evil), half Mike (abductee, secretly good when drunk) with some undefined percentage of Martian DNA might be an interesting complication. Especially considering Lil Miss Warner would be the third person *BORN* with Martian DNA, insofar as has been shown. That would imply she would have at least some abductee characteristics, if perhaps not at the Sal/David Walkerton level of power. And, yes, I’m a geek for podering this!
Joyce and Walky’s timetravelling future kid had superpowers, as did all the other future kids who came after him.
Mike has super strength right? So, when the baby starts really kicking hard…
This makes me so happy, in so many ways. I’m not entirely sure why. It just gives me great glee. I know that I enjoy the way that the pregnancy is being handled. . .as opposed to CAD. (But then, at least in my head, Shortpacked! > CAD.)
I have no idea whether they’re actually going to have the baby (yes please!) or if there’s a miscarriage of some sort, but I can count on the emotional impact of either one being properly displayed, whatever happens. I abhor stories where miscarriages are convenient, short-lived plot devices. I don’t think I have to worry here, though!
Miscarriages are terrifying and beyond heartbreaking! I really doubt that’s the route Willis will go, because baby death would completely kill the funny. D:
I really don’t think that’s what will happen, just because it doesn’t fit the tone of the strip. Although serious moments abound, there is a difference between “serious” and “world-ending”.
Plus, I don’t see Amber as the type to neglect natal care, she’s not a substance abuser (the last time I remember her getting drunk was like, what, a year ago?), and blood-type miscarriages usually only happen on the second pregnancy. (which makes what’s-her-head in CAD’s miscarriage rather strange. . .) I think the baby is pretty safe. Hopefully.
It’s probably wrong that I am squee-ing harder for this fictional baby than when my sister-in-law told me she was pregnant.
Hmm it’s a little sad that all the speculations about Donna only had to do with Mike. How she’ll take after Mike, how Mike will teach her, bla bla bla. I’m not gonna call everyone in this comment thread sexist, BUT…
it takes two to make a baby.
