A new storyline has appeared!
She’s got to be very selective (other wise EVERYONE would want to be there…)
Leslie is the only one who would come.
I know I sure wouldn’t show up. Malaya’s annoying at best. I can’t handle sexy and annoying.
Leslie’s too good for this sinful word.
Nah, Ryu would definitely go.
….she DARES to doubt the legitimacy of a current-day Jesus Christ brought back to life by SCIENCE?!
Don’t think she’s disputing that he’s Jesus.
She just wants the biblical ideal over the historical actual. Namely, the tall, white, brown haired guy.
No, she wants wine.
And enough snacks for everybody in the party.
Biblical Jesus IS a better catch.
YOU MEAN BLUE-EYED BLONDE ARYAN, AMIRITE :-p
Wouldn’t a “Aryan Jesus” have to look more like a Persian?
Isn’t Biblial Jesus typically brown-haired?
Sometimes, not always: http://www.fanpop.com/spots/jesus/images/31696640/title/jesus-heart-photo
To me that just looks like an appallingly bad scan of a light-brown haired Jesus. Not that I dispute that there are blond Jesii out there, but I’m not sure I accept this washed-out image as an example of anything but bad color correction.
Jesii? So his name is Jesius now?
His name was actually Joshua, if you want to be particular.
You realize he’s got blue eyes, right? Or did those “wash out” somehow from brown?
I don’t recall mentioning his eye color at all, actually. Blue-eyed Jesiii are commonplace, no disputing that; I’m actually not sure I’ve seen a picture of him with brown eyes that wasn’t deliberately historically accurate. Blondes of him are a bit rarer in my experience; usually he has blue eyes and lightish brown hair.
Who doesn’t prefer Bishie Jesus or Historical Jesus?
I apologize for the nitpick, but historical interpretations are also subject to interpretation & bias from the historians & their audiences.
History is a surprisingly fluid thing, and subject to a lot of paradigm shifts as new evidence is discovered and old evidence is reexamined.
If other writers/artist rendered a ‘Historical Jesus,’ he would probably be very different in each incarnation due to all this.
I want to see “Galactica actual” Jesus.
That’s the point, Historical Jesus VS Biblical Jesus like getting some random kid with glasses JK Rowling once saw on the bus instead of Harry Potter.
In fairness, the Gospels make it very clear that Biblical Jesus was awesome at parties. When Jesus was in the house, the wine never stops flowing. Party on, Christ.
And don’t forget you’ll never run out of fish.
so I’m thinking sushi bar….
I like where you’re going with this.
Wasn’t it red wine, though? That’s a social… mishap, isn’t it? I know he wasn’t a fan of mixing red wine and fish. It’s how you know who the James Bond villains are.
I don’t think the kind of wine was specified, though white wine was something only the rich could manage. But if Jesus is cranking it out, I don’t think he’s encumbered by financial or social roadblocks.
And that’s why Biblical Jesus is invited to all the parties.
She knows who she likes.
In her bed.
I love how Ninja Rick is more of a nope than Faz. How is THAT possible?
Rick wants to penetrate her with his sword. Nudge nudge wink wink.
Ninja Rick more creepily interested in her than Faz is (due to her being Asian).
More importantly though, he’s an extreme otaku — what a nerd is to other nerds.
This can only end horribly.
*plays Kool & The Gang’s “Celebration” on the Muzak, followed by Wang Chung’s “Everybody Have Fun Tonight”*
Will this party be clothing optional?
Clothing: Completely optional.
Clothing is usually optional when you’re alone in your living room.
I miss Amber…
The paper is entirely blank.
At least she won’t have to spend a lot of money on refreshments.
Right now, I still kind of hate Malaya for her nerdotry (nerd bigotry).
I prefer the term Nerdism (nerd racism)
“Nerdism” implies being pro-Nerdishness.
Does that mean “racism” implies being pro-raciness?
Or you’re a fan of races.
NASCAR finally makes sense now…
It’s a birthday party that begins with the letter “O”!
Orphan? Orphonoc? Orgasm? Orifice? Orcs?
Orcsorcsorcsorcsorcs… sorry. But orcs make everything better.
You meant orkz, didn’t you?
I did, but I didn’t expect anyone to catch the reference.
Nothing like being a bit transparent.
Lol, Only dude good enough is Jacob.
Not necessarily true! We did not see her make a decision one way or the other on Galasso yet.
I think it’s be hilarious if for some reason she and Galasso get along just great. He highly approves of the way she looks down on almost everybody. And he hasn’t figured out she’s a girl yet.
I bet at least Ultra-Car is invited.
The fact that the story’s name is Girthday does not bode well. An ominous Portmanteau indeed.
Malaya gets REALLY fat over her birthday.
So, the story of Malaya’s life, condensed into six panels then.
Why does Faz say ladies, I don’t see–OH GOD, he’s talking to her boobs, isn’t he?
worse Faz has discovered The fourth Wall!!! no one is safe from his pravites!!!
Faz has a tendency to open most conversations with “Hey ladies”, regardless of accuracy. Perhaps his grasp of tenses is not the only problem with his English?
Or he is a big fan of the Beastie Boys.
If you let him finish, he says “Hey ladies…get funky!” then pulls out and rings a cowbell.
with his penis
For some reason I read that last part as two separate sentences…
“He pulls out. And rings a cowbell.”
Must get annoying if he does that every time…
Weird how he’s still hitting on his female co-workers even when he’s finally in a relationship.
Then again, Wen seemed pretty cool with Faz owning an Amber-pillow.
Genetic sexual attraction, remember? Considering at least half of us are assuming Wen is another half-sibling until proven otherwise… I’m just gonna leave that sentence there and bleach out my brain for a while.
If she invites Ultra Car, there will be FREE PIE!
(just don’t eat any of it)
As a non-native english speaker, I ended up having to recheck the meaning of girth, since, for whatever reason, I could only associate it with something dirty and really didn’t know why.
Eeeeerrrrrr I kinda do know, but why must my mind go to penises first?
Probably because penises are one of the only contexts where people actually use the word “girth.” The only other cases I can think of are expanding waistlines (a concept with hundreds of other euphemisms to choose from) and saddles (not a frequent topic of conversation in most circles.)
Personally, I take girth to mean being fat. Hadn’t even thought about penises till you guys brought it up.
Holy Shit! Ninja Rick!
I think that’s the title of Willis’ next webcomic.
What is the difference between Historical Jesus & Biblical Jesus?
Biblical Jesus, respectively “Jesus as the church wants him to be, is white, blond and tall – while Historical Jesus looks like he’s really born in Galilee.
I suppose the church wanted him to be white because the europeans wouldn’t understand why they should rever someone as their savior who looks a lot like the people they were fighting against in the crusades.
I’m christian and I certainly never believed he was blond. In fact in my head he always has looked quite like Willis’ depiction here (if a little taller)
So … Jesus was Snake Plissken?
And I believe He was dead too!
Since when is Jesus believed to be blonde? Never seen him depicted as anythign other than brunette.
I recall a few examples our religion teacher showed us, where Jesus was depicted as blond. But you’re right, the most time he was depicted as brunette, although his skintone was a tad too fair for the area he lived in.
I used to buy old comic books from a local flea market, and one of the booths sold nothing but paintings of Jesus, usually reading the bible to some children, or standing in front of an American flag and crying because gay people exist or whatever.
Or it least, it was supposed to be Jesus. He looked like a country music singer, or maybe The Dude from The Big Lebowski if he lost some weight. Big mane of dark blond hair.
Could mean alot of things:
- She doesn’t hink he is the real Jesus but some creepy religious guy
- She doesn’t think he is devine and thus can;t supply her party with infinite wine
- He is too different from her conception of the Biblical jesus (In looks or personality or beliefs) for her to like him
Sweet, a Malaya story, I really want to see more of her background and character. I’m intrested to see why she is the way she is.
Also maybe Leslie can meet a new love intrest at the party? :3
I’m shocked Faz was only a nope, when ninja Rick was a definitely nope. To me Faz would be a hell no.
Faz schmoozes anything he perceives to have breasts, but Rick is stalking her specifically because she’s an Asian girl, who he probably wants to stuff into a fuku. And he’s twice her age while doing it.
I can’t even really blame Malaya for this. If I have a birthday party, I’m sure as hell not inviting every one of coworkers. The fact that she invited any of them is pretty good.
You’ve got a good point; we know her coworkers well and know that they’re all loveable (excepting the %50 or so of them that explicitly aren’t), but she barely knows them and has no particular reason to want to. We all judge her for hating on geek stuff, but which of us feels compelled to expand our interests just to accommodate people we’ve just met? She’s not even consistently rude about it; sometimes she’s just painfully ignorant. (But not as ignorant as I am about, say, rugby.)
From a real-world perspective, the fact that she’s inviting *any* of them would probably come down to the fact that the only other people she seems to know socially are her roommates, who she doesn’t seem to be particularly friendly with either.
A small intimate affair huh?
I love how Faz says “Hey Ladies” even when there’s only one of them XD
As was said above, he was addressing her chest.
She’s reminding me of the yipyips from Sesame Street now. “yipyipyip…OAT-MEAL. …nope! nopenopenopenopenopenope!”
