You always nee a scapegoat. lol.
Agreed, yet can he really be called the scapegoat if he’s actually the reason for the impending riot of over 800 people?
A scapegoat would imply that they are all guilty of the same crime where here it was his perticular position to make sure that the event was not an all boys club.
The problem, though, is if that they didn’t have the event, they would have had to issue the refunds regardless. Either that or Ellie would have had to date around 800 dudes, and that wouldn’t be possible in the time frame they had. This was their best shot, but they needed incentives to get the ladies in the door. Still possible–I maintain “open bar for ladies” would do the job–but they needed to sweeten that pot in short order.
Juniper would show up for an open bar, anyway.
I wondered myself. But remember, Juni’s been in AA since Ellie’s convention tour with our old buddy Daniel. Still, Juni might know a few lushes who’d throw down, and the Patreon strips suggest Juni may be off the wagon, depending on how they fit in time-wise.
Juniper is the constant disappoint of the family. She likey off the wagon again for the forth time this month.
So. You’re saying this is the fourth day of the month?
Court mandated AA perhaps? And she was seen drinking… but that should have been after the convention event, shouldn’t it?
Did someone say open bar?
is he a Knight who says Ni?
Doth not insist upon myself,
It’s for whom the Knight which says Ni.
A green thumb though shalt have,
All for save one foot, the green thumb shall be found.
Not just half by axis, nor all by appendage.
For three is the holy number of which though shalt have.
For thousands is being compelled to first bring back a shrubbery.
Dog darn auto corkboard. Thou damn it. Thou.
Ball the balls? I’m not familiar with this hip new lingo.
I think he meant, By the balls. That was a typo, right Rusche? Anywho, I think someone is about to get an X on the character page and the first two guesses don’t count.
Not before he gets a wig and a dress.
Nah, Merrick just had a Freudian slip. He’s got balls on the mind.
I’d buy that for a dollar.
Congratulations on earning the first comment, with the word first being conveniently buried.
Fuck! Is it too late to say first?
Yes. But trying to say it negates the effect.
Double fuck!!!!! I had first and I blew it!?
Negative. Since it was based in a question about the rules and not a statement itself, the negating has not occurred.
More balls than a Chuck E. Cheese playpit, yes indeed.
Ellie is THIS CLOSE to beating someone down and cutting their hair.
how on earth did they not see this coming like a ton of bricks?! Or a ton of dudes? I would think it was obvious, but what do I know even I didn’t see it coming! hahahaaaaa
And then it hit them like a ton of dicks…
Sup Mr B
Then they should have worn a ton of condoms.
I guess it gives new meaning to the song, “she was a _ _ I c k house”
Ellie has a surprisingly good grasp of the situation and it’s future ramifications.
Let’s just hope they don’t recruit her into their…. “club”.
It’s how she’s been described before: she’s lazy as all get-out with zero motivation most of the time, but when she does get motivated she’s at near Tarra levels of proficiency (just with less multi-planar summoning & future selves time traveling to kick asses)
I mostly have comments on outfits…
Ellie is rockin’ that dress. It a bit too light in tone for my tastes, but I then to favor a darker pallet in general. I’d have gone less powder blue and more teal or robin’s egg. Good Crane colors though. You do you girl.
Wilf pulls of a suit and tie like a boss.
It must be hard for Mandalay to find clothes in his size. He’s a team player though. I give him a B+ for effort.
Merrick looks like a complete tool.
Also, Ellie is aware of at least GG and Mandalay. Interesting…
So you know how I have this six-class ranking system for big, right? Big, healthy, husky, fluffy, dayumn! and oh HAYLL no! Well, I actually managed to run into a seventh class. I call it “Mandalay” because that was the dude’s name. And if I ever meet anyone bigger than Mandalay he will be trying to eat the planet and they will call him Galactus. You know how for him, there’s a guy on a surfboard that travels in front of him, warning people that he’s coming? For Mandalay, I hear it’s Tattoo from Fantasy Island on a skateboard.
Don’t worry, God created the Big and Tall store for dudes like Mandalay.
I thought that it was Thornton Mellon.
Ellie must have a custom tailor.
That’s a woman’s shirt. It buttons are on the left, men’s shirts button from the right. The reason is because servents used to dress women of stature, the servants are gone but the style remains.
Or it’s a shirt designed for Navy or Firefighting or other Navy-descended professions. I dunno if it’s the same in the USA but in the territories still technically sworn to the English Royal Family any of the above professions make their uniforms designed to be worn from the left rather than the right. Not sure why, but it’s all designed to be worn by a lefty.
EDIT: The shirt is actually just really weird… Note that the side we see with buttons on it is also the one showing atop the other side, so it’s like buttons that are done facing inwards but go through the whole fabric rather than being sewn on…?
Heee that wee skull & crossbones over Ellie’s head, cute touch. I like the dress, too. GG, time to be a team player, time to mingle!
Isn’t she like 12?
She’s short, not 12 :p
I’m happy to see that GG has an actual nose. From the cast page picture of her, I’d gotten into my head that she just had nostril holes, which made her even creepier when blinking.
Krillin she ain’t.
Yup. She is still alive and not beaten to a bloody pulp
I don’t know… You put a wig on Krillin, and you’re about 80% to GG already.
I guess this explains why so much of D52 is dead.
They left quality control in the hands of the Montage pusher / junkie.
Looks like she started caring more about the job and less about getting out of it :p
Reading webcomics at work. A manager walks behind me and makes a comment about Ellie’s bust size. It’s both funny and embarrassing.
The part about your manager walking behind you sounds like the beginning of a joke! ? While Ellie is rather busty, if you want to see women with impossible chests then look no further than the twin furry train wrecks known as Las Lindas and Rascals!
Wow. I was going to mention grrlpower and btbcomic, but they’re rather flat compared to your katbox references.
But I must admit I’m not actually into huge breasts. In the early comics Ellie had a normal breast size and watching her work was so effing hilarious! I especially laughed at when she was told to get some crayons. XD
Her current situation is just cringeworthy. I was like “why do you stay with these obvious frauds?” right from the beginning and I was hoping that she left for good when she finally did talk sense (see http://shotgunshuffle.com/comic/desperation_/ ). But nooo, she gets fooled again. I expected her to be way more intelligent after all she has been through.
Also her current face looks like a guy’s face, especially panel 2.
You just say that because he didn’t draw the blue in her eyes.
Incredible reveal. Ellie’s a guy.
It’s the Shotgun Shuffle THAT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING.
The statement must be shared.
It was something along the lines of ‘That girl has huge hoo-hahs.’
Ellie relly needs the money.and this was and still is a good opportunity to learn more about event planning. This is a good opportunity to see how well Ellie is at thinking on her feet as well as seeing how she handles setbacks like this.
YOU HAD ONE JOB, MERRICK. ONE. JOB.
Love the title! Although there is an excess of the brotherhood of man, so probably not invoking that right now.
Ellie does seem to be definitely stepping into a management role here.
How are they going to get the women to even out the men.
Split the crowd, entertain them separately in groups while the rest chats around, plays billiard or whatever. The rest will eventually lose interest and leave quickly.
There’s also a catchall gag opportunity here: half the dillusioned singles collectively swear off women and play for the other team.
I don’t understand something. If it has already been asked before, I will freely admit I have not been following the comments thoroughly. The group led by Tired Guy, is together for the express purpose to find the item (that we think is hidden in Quinn’s barrette (or IS being used as the barrette)). So, I don’t get why the group gives a rats behind whether or not eSymmetry survives this get together? I *DO* understand why Ellie cares, but why are they all concerned/angry/upset with Merrick and his failure to complete his “mission” tonight?
I assume that E-Symmetry is what funds their organization’s activities, as well as putting food on their tables. So, more economic than integral to their schemes.
Or, perhaps love fuels the artificial intelligence they’re trying to get. That’s probably it.
Why haven’t you voted yet today?
I vote all the time, I kept wondering if everyone else wasn’t :p
So I was right about the typo!
Hm. Nav update. New faces.
When you are so massive, you cant fully button up your shirt. Good lord Mandalay is huge.
Wait a minute. I don’t think I like where this is going, think before you do anything drastic Ellie.
Yes. Use the sort of thoughtful decision making skills your sister Juniper would employ in this sort of situation.
Remember, WWJD – What Would Juniper Do?
First, get a martini.
Wait a second, that was sarcasm wasn’t it?
No. Not at all.
Besides, Ellie’s underage.
Though what I’m really worried about is she’s about to create work for me.
Part of having people who will have your back no matter what means having their backs from time to time.
Granted your threshold for calling in help is presumably much higher than most people’s, but still…
