I love Hijinks, especially when they ensue.
It’s less fun to start the web comic name thread when Willis beats us to the punch, XD.
Could the content of the next page be … QUESTIONABLE??
I see this thread being Something Positive
These puns will get you attacked by Females. With Slingshots.
So I guess Robin wants to see Manly Guys Doing Manly Things.
I guess helping him meet this guy again after what happened last time is The Least they Can Do
… that web-comic is so awful i feel guilty just mentioning it
Wait! i have another one!
perhaps they will do something considered… Not Safe For Work
Of course, the only way for Robin to have the energy for these hijinks is if she had her Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.
That’s dangerous, it could be The End Of Things if she does that again
Nah. I’m sure there’s a better option than violence. Let’s Be Friends Again.
Hope they don’t get injured while they’re running around, or they may end up home stuck for a few days.
I kinda fear the whole matchmaking plot might become an Errant Story from the main theme of Amber giving birth.
“Hijinks what mayhaps ensue”
I see what you did there.
Somehow, I saw this coming.
Not because you’re predictable, Willis, but because Robin just won’t rest until she sees some guy on guy action.
Robin has worked long and hard for it. (that sounds a bit double entendre-y)
Can’t she just use the internet for her guy-on-guy action and leave poor Ethan alone?
Apply a bit of metalogic here. Ethan is on the Internet.
That would be logical and easy.
AKA, not Robin.
And that coffee table will prolly be used for another Star Wars toy.
Do you see the dilemma, Les?
o3o I see no problem with this scenario… OTP
But it’s HER Star Wars toy on that coffee table. There’s a difference, you see.
Doesn’t Ethan own a Millennium Falcon that’s like, half life size? He could make everyone happy!
Nope, Robin brought that for Les when she gave her the house.
Couldn’t we solve the problem by just getting a Han Solo in Carbonite coffee table and combining the toy and the function?
That was easy.
It’s nice to see Robin and Leslie doing something together. Pity this is probably going to turn into another story about Ethan’s toy addiction ruining his relationships.
Or it could turn into a story about Robin and Leslie doing something together.
And at some point it will probably turn into a story about Amber having a baby. But who cares, there are toy jokes and lesbians to be had first!
Ethan is two hours late to the delivery of his best friends baby because he’s buying an Alfred figurine; his addiction is already ruining his relationships.
Let’s talk about lesbians some more, instead.
Two hours. Delivery room. Childbirth. Two hours.
Amber only wishes. Enough said.
If I were Ethan they’d be talking about the amount of LEGOS I have. -_-
I salute you, good sir, and your wonderful passion that I share.
Yes, but you could build Leslie a second coffee table with those Legos Lego Brand Construction Bricks and she’d have nothing to bitch about.
When you have enough Lego bricks to build storage equipment to hold them out of Lego bricks you know you have the perfect amount of them.
We call that “Lego Equilibrium.”
Robin can play her Lesbian like a flute. Or like a less phallic, lesbian musical instrument.
I think the entire discussion beneath missed your comment. You win, sir. 100 points for picking the correct instrument.
Bravo, sir. You may now possess all individual Internets in a large quantity.
Good lord, ocarina even have labium.
I’ll be in my bunk.
Harp. Think about it.
It’s definitely a wind instrument of some kind.
Like a saxaphone? A sapphic saxaphone. A sapphaphone!
I”m not so sure
You can do that with woodwinds as well.
Euphoniums have tonguing and fingering? And sounds kind of like euphanism. Euphanium?
Nice one, Doctor. Read in the right frame of mind, that article is a treasure trove of double entendre.
I’m drawing a blank here. Maybe one of those sets of water-filled wine glasses, where you dip your finger in and run it around the rims to make music? Wait… that imagery just went somewhere kind of gross.
Dammit, now I’m going to be preoccupied trying to think of a yonic musical instrument.
I think we should go for the classic, an acoustic guitar.
are they gonna hook ethan up with joel?
cause that would be hilarious
And then they can hook up again. And everyone can have gay sex as Amber pushes out the kid.
nothing must fill a heterosexual woman giving birth with rage than a gay orgy of people who won’t have to go through that…
Aw contraire. If it happens in front of her it’ll probably ease the whole experience. Don’t forget, man-on-man action makes Amber positively catatonic.
“If I grope in the slip…”
that depends in f they gave her the “good stuff”
I was going to make a joke about some severe reaction to someone wanting Ethan to get rid of toys, but I think that joke’s played out now. Oh well.
Yes, but if instead of making played-out jokes about Ethan’s toy collecting, you were smoking and drinking, would we be laughing?
It would be nice if this pulls Robin and Leslie back together or gets Ethan a new boyfriend or both. Just hope they don’t forget about Amber.
Your comment reminds me of the Frasier episode where Roz goes into labor, and Frasier, Daphne, Niles and Martin are in the waiting room is bitching about what an awful night they had–except when the hospital attendants wheel Roz through, and they manage to act concerned for all of thirty seconds.
Honestly, I think Robin could’ve said anything at this point and Leslie would’ve gone along with it. I mean, c’mon, hijinks are FUN and they have a loooooong wait. (Both for Ethan AND the Warnerspawn.)
That fourth-panel face is not the face of someone who is reacting to getting back their coffee table.
I dunno, this is Leslie. If she cares about one tho g, it’s coffee tables (see character bio).
Well, Leslie was one of the reasons why Ethan wasn’t able to get his boyfriend on his own in the first place (when he and Manny are “almost” getting along), so she should feel at least a little guilt on this.
Yes, but nobody but Robin is aware that Manny’s not the prostitute.
Leslie sounds like my Mother when I was a teenager and obsessed with Gundam models…
I’m calling it.
Robin hasn’t pulled her pants up yet.
Same thought as well.
As off color as a discussion of what musical instrument best represents Leslie’s sexual organs, it sure beats another day of “Ethan stopping to buy a single toy he’d just found, from a store he was already in when he got the call about Amber going into labor, is a sign of him having a deep mental illness,” discussion. And I thank you all for that.
Yessss. I love it when Robin gets into hijinx. Feels right, you know?
Her pants are still around her ankles… aren’t they? She hopped all the way back.
It’s a safe bet to assume so. Also, love the Hijinks Ensue shoutout.
Hijinks THAT mayhaps ensue.
I hate to be a grammar nitpicker, but I really hate that mistake. I don’t care if it’s Robin’s mistake or Willis’s.
Except that doesn’t make sense either as an opening line.
I prefer “Hyjinks MAY mayhaps ensue!”, which is both correct and has an allocation of awesome alliteration also.
It’s not incorrect, Robin is purposefully using the archaic form. And she’s not making a whole sentence, just a noun phrase.
I believe the correct grammar there would actually be “Hijinks what mayhap ensue” – no s on mayhap. I think. If we’re particular about being precise.
Since, of course, Robin would absolutely never get it wrong, given her meticulous and careful personality.
I know other people have mentioned it, but hooray Hijinks Ensue reference. Joel will be pleased, I’m sure.
Robin’s Hijinks are fine…
except when they get her broken up with her girlfriend for no damn reason.
I love that Robin and Leslie are civil with each other again :3
Am I the only person who would like to think that the words “hijinks” and “ensue” can be uttered in the same sentence without it necessarily being a reference to a webcomic? It feels like a sort of co-opting of the words, depriving them of their natural meaning. I’d hate to live in a world where I can’t comment “That girl is a genius” without somebody shooting me with a finger-gun and a wink, saying “Good one!”
Well, Willis and Joel are good friends, so it’s not too far out of left field to think that was a nod to HE.
Right, right, but does this mean that if we see the word ‘hijinks’, we will inevitably see the word ‘ensue’ nearby? Has ‘ensue’ also lost the ability to stand alone? Are both these words slowly receding from their previous free and normal usages, unconstrained by each other or the webcomic that they at one time, long ago in the past, didn’t reference?
It feels like a small amount of shine has gone out of the english language. I need an indian to come and cry a single tear for it.
(Mind you, I’d need an entire native army to come charging in and flood the place to compensate for all the other damage that has been done by memes and soundbytes over the past ten-to-forty years, but still it feels like each new tiny chink deserves its designated dampening.)
And I hasten to clarify, I’m not bothered by the fact that Willis used the words, together or separately, regardless of reason. (Arguably they should both get more use – they’re both excellent and underappreciated words.) My dismay is at how many people seem to have leapt onto the perceived reference. Admittedly there’s a somewhat high representation of webcomic-reading people here but still, I’m watching a language shift before my eyes.
lesilie first thought should be panic over being involved with one of robins plans. though on the other hand if it leads to ethan having some romance get it done robin
Wait a minute… she has EYEBROWS?!
It’s so nice to see Leslie and Robin getting along again! <3
