Norman Thallheimer (normanrt) says:

So, perhaps Sweetheart should have ordered the punch?  It didn't seem to be that sort of bar...

Or is she going to get the punch whether she orders it or not?

Michael Brewer (wusemajor) says:

....There are times when I really just don't get Sweetheart.

Jared Anderson (the_shrike) says:

Let me guess....the squirrels have been around lately/are running the place?

Viktor Dosk (hugin) says: She's basically a wolf engineered to be smart enough to take over America. If she orders a beer, you give it to her. If she rampages, it could get ugly.
Euel Ball (euel) says:

"Ugly"?  You have NO idea how ugly it can get!  Spilled coffee, staying -on- the grass when the sign says not to, paw prints on fresh cement, horrors of Biblical proportions...

Grant McCormick (grantcmccormick) says:

So . . . .

This dog walks into a bar and grill, and asks for a beer.

"Sorry, we don't serve dogs here," the bartender growls.

"Just as well," the pooch replies.  "I'd hate to become a cannibal!

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "Those Were The Days", Gene Raskin & Boris Fomin)

In a run-down bar somewhere in Cleveland,
Sweetheart went inside to have a beer ...
The barkeep with the facial bandage told her,
"I'm sorry, but we don't serve dogs in here ..."

CHORUS:
    Is this some kind of joke?
    We've got a dog that spoke!
    It's days like this, that make bartenders curse!
    Plus, there should be, at least,
    A rabbi and a priest!
    You think that's bad?  The punch line's even worse!

Man, we get some weird ones coming in here ...
Sweetheart, girl, you're not the only one ...
Ev'ry race and country and religion,
Midgets and gorillas and a nun!
    (repeat CHORUS)

What will Sweetheart do with her frustrations
If she finds a canine-serving bar?
Will she snap and go out on a rampage,
Or pass out well before she gets that far?
    (last call for CHORUS)

Andrew Kunz (ampersand888) says:

Which brings up another question: how does she pay for the beer?

Jeffrey Channing Wells (channing) says: @Andrew: This burning question was actually addressed in a strip that was eventually cut from the storyline. The question has a different answer now.
Jay Thomason (wilder125) says:

Having a hard time commenting right now.


At any rate, loved the Artie/Narbonic cameo

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

I drew this strip about a month ago, and last week I bought a set of bamboo barstools at an antique store that look exactly like the ones I drew here. That is so weird.
Mason Kramer (masonk) says:

Precognitive drawing?

Bruce Bergman (brucebergman) says:

Actually, Sweetheart could carry... 

Waitaminit, she doesn't wear a collar - so a little pouch with her Gov't ID, Credit Cards and a few bucks in cash wouldn't work.  Nevermind.

Oh, what am I thinking?  MALLET-SPACE!

 

Andrew Kunz (ampersand888) says:

Or in this case, Doggie(bag)space.

Jon Stout (brasswatchman) says: I'm interested in how nonplussed the bartender seems to be by having to turn down a talking dog.
Jared Anderson (the_shrike) says:

This is Cleveland. I'm sure it's a fairly regular occurance.

Jon Stout (brasswatchman) says: @Jared - speaking as a native? It's a talking dog. Not a talking squirrel. Important distinction.
Jared Anderson (the_shrike) says:

Three exclamation marks. Looks like he means business.

Or "no business", as it may be....

Ysabet Just Ysabet (theysabet) says:

Awww, cute little bar-rat! Shame about the service, though. Also, I guess they need some kind of marker for transG-friendly bars-- maybe a pawprint sticker in the front window?  **grin** Oh, the irony...

Joyce Melton (halfelven) says:

A rainbow pawprint, thank you. Not to forget anyone. :)

Dave Van Domelen (dvandom) says: "Damn it, Leroy, we had an agreement. You don't talk until everyone's totally hammered!"
Viktor Dosk (hugin) says: And here comes the lawsuit. In fact, since Artie is here and Mell's a lawyer...YAY!!!
Sam Ashley (evilmidnightlurker) says:

You know what this blatant discrimination calls for?

RAMPAGE.

Chris (khade) says:

This one might be the worst disguised bot I've seen in a while, but it compliments something, not sure what though, I don't think this is a blog...

Anyway, What is that little guy?  A ferret?  A sock puppet?  I don't think he can be a rat.

Elizabeth Carter (socks) says:

Chris - is he not a gerbil? ;)

Elizabeth Carter (socks) says:

(The little guy, that is, not the bot...)

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "Dirty Love", Frank Zappa)

We're in
A dirty bar!
It's so dark and dirty,
It's got thirty-seven rats!

We're in
A dirty bar!
And the gruff bartender's
Not a friend, he never chats!

It's pathetic, not palatial!
And the guy with stubble facial
Gives us service almost glacial
In this dirty bar!
This dirty bar!

We're in
A dirty bar!
But he won't serve us
Even though we're saying "please"!

We're in
A dirty bar!
And this here rodent
Sitting next to me agrees!

Must admit, it's not too scenic
And the floor is slimy green, ick!
They're not friends with folks transgenic
In this dirty bar!
This dirty bar!

Eric Stromberg (kiritheunicorn) says:

@Ed Gedeon:

Given the nature of our protagonists, I'm rather surprised that you have not yet cribbed the tune of Zappa's "Zomby Woof"...

But thanks; I love getting filky!

joe dreyfuss (jdreyfuss) says:

They're the only ones in there. You'd think he'd appreciate the business.

Andrew Kunz (ampersand888) says:

The best dirty bar I've ever been to is one that ironically skirts the Plaza to University of Missouri - Kansas City's posh downtown area called The Peanut. $1 tacos every day, and just enough room to seat 230 rats. 

Johnn Reynolds (sleepyjohn) says:

The mutagenic squids were in yesterday, and screwed it up for everone.

vicka corey (drbrain) says:

HEY I JUST NOTICED TIGERLILY'S ON THE CAST PAGE NOW!!!

that is all :)

Andrew Cole (andy4hire) says:

@drbrain: Oh, goodness, so she is! Thanks for the heads-up! And I just love the Dr. Seuss-ish vehicle she's driving in the picture!

Andrew Cole (andy4hire) says:


@socks: I'm guessing it's a rat. First, Sweetheart mentions rats in the second panel, and second, it looks sort of like a miniature llama with whiskers. If it were a gerbil, it'd look more like a little tree kangaroo. (At least, that's how the computer on Madblood's moonbase described Artie in the June 28, 2003, Narbonic strip.)
Ysabet Just Ysabet (theysabet) says:

To halfelven:  RAINBOW PAWPRINT FTW!!!

Jon McCormick (youko) says:

Yep, that's cats alright. XD

Rebecca Burgess (ultrafuchsia) says:

Love, Love, LOVE Sweetheart's expression in the last panel.  The eyes are perfect.

 

Could there be the potential for a little cross-transgenic-species love?

Jared Anderson (the_shrike) says:

A tiger walks into a bar. No one has ANY problem with at all, not at all, mister tiger sir....please don't eat us..um..your majesty

Grant McCormick (grantcmccormick) says:

"Tiger, tiger, smiling bright
On a barstool in the night.
What quite-mortal human guy
Could refuse thy simple cry?"

 

a.k.a

 

Where does the 500 lb. Kzin drink?

Anywhere it wants to.

Daniel Barkalow (iabervon) says:

A tiger walks into a bar and says, "So, do you serve cats, or bartender?"

Adam (10-0-0-1) says: @Rebecca: Sweetheart trying to make that work would be most amusing, thus I approve.
Viktor Dosk (hugin) says: I wasn't expecting this guy to be intimidatable. Sweetheart is basically a nicer wolf. Seeing him stand up to her but give in to Ima Cat is a bit disappointing.
woozy (woozy) says:

Any more questions:

Let's see:

What gives you such confidence?

Why do you act as though you own this bar?

Aren't you worried about consequences?

Is this safe?  Is that yours?  Who is your role model?

 

Lottsa questions can be answered with that simple sentence...

woozy (woozy) says:

Hungry Tiger.

Euel Ball (euel) says:

More like Thirsty Tiger!  Always serve the critter with more teeth than the Osmond Family...

Andrew Kunz (ampersand888) says:

One Tiger Bomb, coming up!

woozy (woozy) says:

But there was no thirsty tiger in the oz books.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: HOBBES!
Pete Bleackley (petethemadscientist) says:

A gorilla goes into a bar, puts ten quid on the counter, and asks for a pint. The barman gives him a pint, 10p change, and says, "I hope you don't mind me staring at you, but we don't get many gorillas in here."

"I'm not surprised at these bloomin' prices!"

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "The Lion Sleeps Tonight", The Tokens)

Jeepers creepers, he's such a sneaker, he's sneakin' up on me ...
Jeepers creepers, he's such a sneaker, he's sneakin' up on me ...

I wanna beer, I wanna beer, I wanna beer, I wanna beer,
I wanna beer, I wanna beer, I wanna beer, I wanna beer ...


In the tavern, the seedy tavern,
The tiger drinks today!
Wants Sam Adams, you'd better have 'em!
The barkeep says, "OK!"

A ... B, C, D, ea-sy, he's a cat!
    (I wanna beer, I wanna beer ...)
A ... B, C, D, ea-sy, he's a cat!
    (I wanna beer, I wanna beer ...)

In the tavern, the seedy tavern,
The tiger wants a beer!
No complaining, while he's explaining
Just how he snuck in here ...

A ... B, C, D, ea-sy, he's a cat!
    (I wanna beer, I wanna beer ...)
(REPEAT & fade out)

John Taylor (barkingmonkey) says:

@Ultrafushcia "Could there be the potential for a little cross-transgenic-species love?"  If by "love" you mean a quickie after which Sweetheart never hears from him again, well, you got the part where he's a cat, right?

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: I like the Thirsty Tiger's convention pass... raising the question (again) of where Sweetheart keeps hers. Also, attributed to the ASPCA: "housecats are nature's way of letting us pet a lion".
Daibhid Ceannaideach (daibhidc) says:

Please say the Thirsty Tiger is named after a 16th century philosopher.

 

I don't know why people keep saying Sweetheart is basically a wolf, and should therefore be able to intimidate people. Sweetheart is basically an adorable husky. I wouldn't be intimidated by her much, and I have acute cynophobia.

Jacob Haller (jwgh) says:

Is that a 'Police Squad' reference?  If so, panel 4 kicks it up a notch.

Mason Kramer (masonk) says:

I'm going to be singing "I wanna beer I wanna beer" in my head all freaking day today. Thanks a *ton*, Ed.

Matthew Mather (madtinkerer) says:

I can testify that the big cat species do act an awful lot like the small cat species and vice versa.

I saw this documentary on buddist monks who were raising orphaned tigers, and at one point they're walking the tiger along a road and it sees a cow. Instantly it goes into the exact same pose my girls go into when they're stalking rabbits. The monks held the tiger back saying "No cow! No cow!" and the cow heard the commotion and bolted when it saw the tiger. The tiger then did a sulky "why did you guys ruin my fun?" thing before reluctantly going back to walking with the monks.

e) It is indeed a cat.

Wayne (wayne) says:

The kittie walks in to a florist.  The florist says: "What's up, tiger?  Lilly?"

Jennifer Brock (jennibrock) says:

He's got tiger blood.  I hope he's not looking to make Sweetheart a goddess.

Andrew Kunz (ampersand888) says:

Didn't Shazam (of all places) have a talking tiger as one of it recurring characters? And I'm talking really old, maybe even Golden Age or Silver Age old.

Rodford Smith (stickmaker) says:

 

 

Mister Tawky Tawney, character from the original Captain Marvel comics. Except he wore clothes.

Jeffrey Channing Wells (channing) says:

@Jacob Haller:  I was, indeed, thinking of the locksmith gag from Police Squad when I was writing this one.

John Campbell (jcampbel) says:

Sweetheart is basically a nicer wolf. But that's just another way of saying "dog", and we've been working with those, playing with them, inviting them into our homes and asking them to guard our children and livestock and ourselves while we sleep for countless millennia. And we get a lot of dog-related injuries, far more than from any wild animal, because familiarity breeds contempt, and we forget that however much we've integrated them into our society, a large dog is still an 80-pound apex predator with big nasty teeth that it'll use if it's hurt or angry.

We did something similar with the small cats, of course, but there's a whole lot more space between the moggies we hired on as exterminators and an 800-pound tiger (which still periodically have to be taught that, no, humans really aren't something you want to be eating) than there is between the dog that'll roll its eyes tolerantly when your kids pull its tail and even a wild wolf, say nothing about Sweetheart.

Diane Castle (deecee) says:

I'm hoping there won't be any cross-transgenic-genus whoopee, for Sweetheart's sake.  In biology, there's this issue with the <ahem, ahem> feline male member.  Look it up.  You wouldn't want it to be used on you.

Poor, poor Sweetheart.

Carl Fishman (carlfishman) says:

@John; There's also the fact that we domesticated cats much, much later than dogs.  (Only around three thousand years ago, in fact.  The Egyptians get the credit.)  And I think I recall reading that all domestic cats are descended from those first house cats.  (Not even very differentiated until the last three centuries.)  While dogs were domesticated independantly on three or four seperate occassions (and separate places.)

Jon Stout (brasswatchman) says: ... Hobbes?
Andrew Kunz (ampersand888) says:

It occurred to me that we had a lion last week, and a tiger this week. Will we have a bear next week and then someone cosplaying Kasumi Tendo the week after that saying, "Oh my!" (Which might as well be Tip.)

woozy (woozy) says:

Actually, the Tiger's expression in Panel 2 reminds me a bit of Mr. Tammananny.  Neat, albeit *silly* if next week's bear could be P.T. Bridgeport.

'course if we're doing fictional animals and the Oz theme isn't forgotten, I wouldn't mind seeing an, *ahem*, woozy perhaps. 

vicka corey (drbrain) says:

@andrew i'm assuming at some point maya winona thundercloud and lim-lim are likely to reappear...

James Rice (jhrice) says:

I also think this tiger is closer to Tammananny than any other comic tiger.   Although to be fair, I have pictures of Tammananny and Hobbes, seperated-at-birth, style, and in those, there is basically no diffrence.  Now we find out that they might in fact be triplets.

Ysabet Just Ysabet (theysabet) says:

Hmmm... following ampersand888's thought about lions and tigers and bears, maybe the pandas from Sweetheart's rampage will show back up.

Brian Bogue (badbear) says:

All the talking animals want to live in Cleveland?  Why?  As far as I can remember the only connection to talking animals is that Howard the Duck lived there for a while.

Mary Potts (queenofcapes) says:

Lions and tigers and...webcomics?  Oh my. O_O

Mason Kramer (masonk) says:

H.T.? So he *is* the Hungry Tiger.

Jared Anderson (the_shrike) says:

@Brian: He's a tiger. That extends to the metaphorical as well as the actual species, I suspect. Mrrrowl. ;)

Dave Van Domelen (dvandom) says: E) He's Rayne Summers.
Rachel Blackman (rainpacket) says:

They all /want/ to live in Cleveland?  Dear god... the minds of animals really /do/ work in different ways than humanity.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: HOBBES!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

But when the Browns play the Bengals, who will he root for?

(TUNE: "Dixie", Daniel D. Emmett)

Now here I am, in the town of Cleveland!
I don't think I'll ever leave, and
I will stay!  I will stay!  I will stay ... in this town!

In Cleveland town where, did I mention,
We're now holding our convention ...
Wanna stay!  Wanna stay!  Wanna stay ... in this town!

It's oh so nice in Cleveland!
It rocks!  It rocks!
It's my desire, when I retire,
To come and live in Cleveland!
Someday ... someday ... I'll settle down in Cleveland!
Someday ... someday ... I'll cheer the Browns in Cleveland!

joe dreyfuss (jdreyfuss) says:

@Ed

Or when the Indians play the Tigers

Jon Stout (brasswatchman) says: Thank God. We've needed *something* to base our economy off of ever since LeBron James left.
Wayne (wayne) says:

I could vaguely see living in Cleveland, you've got Cedar Point Amusement Park nearby (we went there coming back from our honeymoon on Put-In Bay) and it's not too far from Columbus and the annual Origins game convention.  And I was amazed to find that there was good Mexican food in Oberlin, apparently part of a chain that's in Cleveland.  Plus you have the Cleveland Clinic, so yeah, I could see living there.  But I'd need to find a guaranteed mosquito repellant, perhaps I could tow a little red wagon behind me with two big blocks of dry ice....

Diane Castle (deecee) says:

I think it's the Hellmouth.

Oh wait, wrong universe.

woozy (woozy) says:

I'm so glad my cat Rosie is not on the Transgenic mailing list!  She'd insist on going to the convention and insist I fly her first class.  She'd simply assume she was the Northern California representative and I'd hate to see her disappointed face when they tell her she isn't actually transgenic but just a cat.

woozy (woozy) says:

>>H.T.? So he *is* the Hungry Tiger.

Or Hiram Tindleyarm...

Jon Stout (brasswatchman) says: @Wayne - yeah, the Mexican actually is pretty good. Indian food isn't bad either, though that probably depends on who you ask.
Bob Folker (alpinebob) says:

Hugs for Shaenon!

Hungry Tiger, you say? Nay, I proclaim "H. T. Artist" must be short for "Hug the Artist"!

And who wouldn't want to hug that gorgeous tiger?

woozy (woozy) says:

Well, *I* want to hug the tiger but I have suicidal tendencies.

Jared Anderson (the_shrike) says:

Yeah, he's a cat alright. They're ALL extreme manipulative bastards.

woozy (woozy) says:

For a cat, he's awfully modest in his surity of himself.  He actually considered wondering whether or not Sweetheart would be game or not.

Dante Parker (danteparker) says:

How's the river on fire?

Joyce Melton (halfelven) says:

That hardly ever happens anymore. :) The rust belt cities are not what they used to be with dumping stuff in the rivers.

Joyce Melton (halfelven) says:

On second thought, if a tiger asks me if I'm game, my answer is, NO!

woozy (woozy) says:

>>>How's the river on fire?

Beautifully like a magic end to a perfect evening!

Sam Ashley (evilmidnightlurker) says:

Burn on, big river, burn on...

Jared Anderson (the_shrike) says:

How can a river burn? Quite easily actually....depending on the area, local industry, local geology, and whether or not any gas mains under it are maintained properly. Having never been to Cleveland, I wouldn't know which one, or if someone's just chucked a few litres of fuel off a bridge and lit it. Or it could be metaphorical, but that's way less interesting than nice, bright, shiney flame....

John Campbell (jcampbel) says:

If a tiger asks you to dinner, and then wants to know if you're game, the answer should definitely be NO!

D. Connolly (theogrin) says:

Fun fact - the Cuyahoga river REALLY caught fire in 1969, following year after year of environmental atrophy.  It sparked quite a lot of environmental action, in fact, little of which (unfortunately) came to fruition.  Years later, the bottling company behind Great Lakes beer (an Ohio-based brand) released the "Burning River" ale, commemorating this event for all time.

Well, until the yeast runs out.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: HOBBES!
Sam Ashley (evilmidnightlurker) says:

 

Above, I quoted Randy Newman's song about the Cuyahoga -- and here's a URL to the whole thing:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SKGIwsXuA0

Andrew Kunz (ampersand888) says:

River, river, burning bright
Tyger asks you on a date that night
Should we worry that for a cat
he's into tapping that?

Daibhid Ceannaideach (daibhidc) says:

There was a fire on the Thames during London's millennium celebrations (a lteralisation of the expression "to set the Thames on fire" meaning to do something remarkable). My favourite radio satire show responded "This is supposed to be a big deal? Have you seen the Thames lately?"

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "Paper In Fire", John Mellencamp)

They had a beer,
And boy, it was a winner!
Then H.T. said to Sweetheart,
"May I inquire ...
If you would, my dear,
Like to join me for dinner?"
Then she said, "Hey, look!
The river's on fire!"

CHORUS:
    River's on fire!
    Such a conflagration!
    River's on fire!
    Mutual admiration!
    He'll wine and dine her,
    He says, "The finer
    Things you admire!"
    The river's on fire!

Sweetheart said, "Well,
I've never dated a feline ..."
And H.T. answered, "Baby,
I'd be a liar,
If I didn't tell
You that you're quite appealin'!"
As they sat and watched
The river on fire!
    (repeat CHORUS)

Brian Petery (ugwump) says:

Burning rivers can occur naturally, provided there is a petroleum deposit near the surface contaminating the water.  In fact, the location for the first oil well ever drilled was selected because a local stream caught fire on a regular basis.

Not that I believe for a second that this is what is occurring here.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: They said this would happen if the Armed forces allowed gays!
Sean Duggan (duggansc) says: *blink* After the prior conversation about... erm... barbed members... I hope that that last panel isn't what it looks like. But hey, maybe Sweetheart did come to like it.

As a side note, there's indications that humans may have once been built that way too. The legacy left behind is a circle of whitish dots of skin that may become inflamed or painful to the touch in humans if over-stimulated.

joe dreyfuss (jdreyfuss) says:

I'm kind of disappointed that Ed didn't base today's song on "Burn On." Coincidentally, I watched Major League last night.

vicka corey (drbrain) says:

0. "don't worry.  you'll like it."  clearly a line i *must* try :)

1. since she didn't "get" tip until he was a wolf, i presume sweetheart isn't actually attracted to the non-canine.  that doesn't mean that h.t. doesn't have charms of his own that will apply at least to the "dinner" aspects of dating.  

2. that point, plus a piece of art i had shaenon do on commission, gives me hope for my favorite crossover slash going on in the background right now ;)

Jon Stout (brasswatchman) says: DUDE. I drove over that bridge every day for six months. Down on the Flats, just down from Tower City, right? :D
Woof Arf (woofnarf) says:

It's so damn romantic.

Ah, Cleveland - where Sweetheart gets sweeped off her paws.

joe dreyfuss (jdreyfuss) says:

It kind of looks like the raised arch portion of the Detroit-Superior bridge, except the design is too old. The Blue Bridge is a traditional cantilever truss, so that's not it. The Center Street Swing Bridge is a boxed design and not an arch. The B&O is a jackknife bridge. The Union Terminal Viaduct is another cantilever truss, as is the Hope Memorial Bridge. The only bridge i can think of that's an older style rounded truss design is the Conrail Lift Bridge at the mouth of the Flats, but there's no lift towers shown in the picture.

Andrew Kunz (ampersand888) says:

Apparently, the latest date for the end of the world is May 21, so I figure, cats dating dogs are probably either a precursor to that or Cleveland really is that cursed.

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

It actually kind of worries me that hardly anyone remembers that the Cuyahoga River caught fire. So did the Detroit River. Rivers in the Rust Belt became badly polluted early in the Industrial Age and started catching fire back in the 19th century. The 1969 fire was actually the tenth fire on the Cuyahoga, but it's the only one that got its own theme song.
Ysabet Just Ysabet (theysabet) says:

**starts singing Strangers In The Night**

vicka corey (drbrain) says:

@shaenon i took the bit about the river's history for granted...

Diane Castle (deecee) says:

@Shaenon: Hey, *some* of us did remember.  I even remember the jokes from the late night talk show hosts about it.  Cleveland was pretty much the 'river on fire' city for several years afterward.

But then, I'm older than you are.

Daniel Johnson (argus) says:

I imagine the "river on fire" references were pushed out by the mayor in 1972.

Jared Anderson (the_shrike) says:

Heh. This could get interesting.

Rebecca Burgess (ultrafuchsia) says:

Oh, boy.  Even MORE cross-transgenic-species love.

Don't blink.

woozy (woozy) says:

Are bells back in fashion with felines?  Well, I guess it is a way of warning potential game of cats' seductive charms.

Eddddd theawsome (eddddd) says:

Tip has kissed (at least one) guy/s before

fluffy <3 (fluffy) says:

I knew about the Cuyahoga river fire because it was a plot point in Breakfast of Champions by Vonnegut.

Andrew Kunz (ampersand888) says:

Tip's super power even works with gerbil turned human Artie. 

Beach Fox (beachfox) says:

Yes.

Yes.

Yes.

YES.

YES.

YES!

YES!!

W o o d (wood) says:

@ Beachfox :

Je dirais même plus : YES !

Thomas Levy (ergonomytch) says:

I hereby christen this ship RTip-5478! *smashes champagne bottle*

Jay Blanc (jayblanc) says:

You've drilled into a mighty large reservoir of fan squee here, you need to get a well head cap on it quick before something sparks it off...

Elizabeth Carter (socks) says:

Oh me, oh my. That is all. <3

D. Connolly (theogrin) says:

You fool!  You're crossing the streams!

Seriously, though, evidently Artie has the polar opposite of Tip's super-power, and the combination... if these two start mud-wrestling, the entire mideast will go up in flames.  (A few fangirls' heads might explode, too.)

vicka corey (drbrain) says:

SQUEE!! :)

Kay Gilbert (kaygilbert) says:

tune: "Don't speak," No Doubt

Here I sit
On a street in Cleveland
Absent all my reason again
I see a man
A vision wearing dreads
Can't understand
What he's doing to my head
It's like an angel fell to Earth
And if he's real
I think my head will burst

Don't blink
Don't blink, it might vanish
It is tall and mannish
I think that I'm in love
No, no, don't blink
Just like Tigerlilly
This one leaves me silly
I can't speak, I'm in love

Help, help, I'm falling
Help, help, I'm falling
I want him bad
I want him bad
I want him real bad

Dieter M. (tangerine) says:

....wait, what?

Andrew Kunz (ampersand888) says:

Could someone put out an APB for Ed? I think he all squeed himself out the point where he had someone else do his fliking for him. 

Kay Gilbert (kaygilbert) says:

Andrew: the only fliking I do is lint off my shirt, but when I filk, it's on my own behalf.  But yeah, a day without Ed is like a day without sunshine.

Brian McPherson (brian-m) says:

@Woozy

Yep, bells definetly seem to be in fashion (for cats).

It seems almost impossible to buy a cat-collar without a bell, around where I live. But hell, you can always cut the bell off if you don't want a cat that jingles all the time. That's what I did.
