Slippery People

Thank you thank you thank you to each and every new Patreon supporter. You are much appreciated! I have previews of the next 4 tiers (2 or 3 comics) Super fatigued after all that driving. Wow, yeah DFW driving suuuuuuuuuuucked. Last time I saw traffic that bad was when I was downtown Chicago. Other than that it was 13 hours of straight boring on I20. Mississippi has a few towns to look at but Louisiana... damn. Nothing for 3 hours. Had a lot of fun with Claire and her daughters, though. Weather was great all 6 days. Went out to eat a lot. Did a lot of running around. Didn't get much sleep (makes your insinuations now.) Looking back, I didn't take a single picture. Claire did though. When we went to Red Lobster (I had a gift card, leave me alone) we saw this in the parking lot, which made me laugh. "This won't fit." "Hold my beer. ..Also lets go eat out." Claire to me: "You didn't take a single picture of us together but you want a picture of this. Really?" >__> ^literally her face. Welcome to the sentimental dumpster fire that will be your future husband. ^___^

    1. Less chance the cops will do give full force if she only escaped. Anytime a cop gets injured badly or (God forbids) geta killed there is always a huge man hunt and all the cops in Town (and surrounding area) go back on duty until the subject is caught.

  1. AAAAHHHHH! GREATEST. EMOTIONAL. DUMP. EVER!! Also, I request that you have your wedding crashed by some Buckingham shenanigans in a future comic

    1. I feel like if he posted on this comic the time and place of his wedding, it wouldn’t be a question of if cosplay Buckinghams would crash his wedding so much as how many of each would show up and would we have any of the family unrepresented.

      1. If that were to happen, the catering would only be finger food, or food that can be eaten with a spork. Can you imagine the number of family infighting incidents that would happen if several of each sister were to show up.

        1. A cousin of mine married a girl from another country. The wedding itself was near her home, but then when they came back they had two or three receptions for all the family & friends that didn’t fly half a day to the wedding.

          If Rusche & Claire decide they want to include comic fans, they could still do whatever they were planning otherwise and just have a non-catered meet-up to allow comic fans to show up and wish them well.

          However, I’m personally from the school/mindset that marriage is for the two people getting married, and they don’t have to actually share it with anyone else if that isn’t part of what makes them happy about getting married (some people are quite personal/private about relationships and don’t consider them anyone else’s business, even close family and friends).

  2. Distraction Level: 1000
    Looks like Tarra’s back is against the wall now.
    Unless she has a “Sabotage Laser Bot” hidden in that ponytail of hers.

    Also, Congrats!

  3. Congrats Rusche and good luck.

    You too Ms. Hot Female Fan. That’s gotta’ be a hard last name to give up, though, so I’m assuming you’re going to go ahead and keep it.

    1. Maybe Summer is insinuating something about David (the fixer of Tarra’s messes) as if Tarra was a baby, or this “daddy” could even be some other character like Mr. Radio.
      But she is probably just referencing Herb’s intervention two pages back. Interestingly that means Summer did recognize who the chief of police was.
      Or maybe she knew that someone with the gall to demand her to drop the double cheeseburger had to be related to Tarra

      1. Considering Summer’s low opinion of Tarra I have a hard time thinking she’d deduce someone was related to Tarra based on having the nerve to stand up to her.

        Although we know that Mr. Night knows Herb is Tarra’s dad and that he’s police chief so depending on how informed he keeps the rest of D52 she might know that way.

    1. Looks like a desk to me. Surface towards the inexplicably not-demolished Sears, feet towards us and just behind the passenger door.

      1. Ding ding ding! Yes, it was a massive rolltop desk. I still have no idea how they managed to get it in there.

        1. Google “The Ballad of Moby Desk,” by Larry Kirby (a.k.a. Mondo the Possum Slayer).

          “I took one look, and I fell in Lust
          They had a desk the size of a Volkswagen bus!”

        2. The joke goes something like:

          How did they get it in there?

          Very, very, very carefully.

  4. Officer, officer my car was stolen!!

    Can you describe your car?

    Yes, it’s a mustang convertible with a full size roll top desk in the back.

  5. I’m appreciating the Talking Heads references these last two pages. I can even see dedicating today’s song to the owner of that deskmobile – “What’s the matter with him?” “He’s alright!” “How do you know?” “Good Lord don’t mind!”

  6. Everyone needs to click on the link, we are at a tie with Stick in the Mud.

  7. And now it’s time for everyone’s favorite poll question time, “What’s _______?” This week, we ask the following question, “Which major U.S. city, that you have driven through, has the worst traffic on a major thoroughfare?”

    1. The worst traffic I ever saw was Chicago. The Dan Ryan Expressway, sometimes referred to as the Dan Ryan Memorial Parking Lot. Bar none.

      1. I’d have to say that my worst parking lot was i-57 in Central Illinois. But it doesn’t fit this week’s question. It had to do with the construction around one of the interstate highway junctions.

      1. Specifically Fridays in the summer headed southbound for the afternoon commute for absolute worst on a recurring basis.

  8. Soooooooo…. I literally discovered your comic a month ago but didn’t start reading it until last week. I’ve basically read it non-stop(as much as one can with a job and semi-life) and it’s one of the best, if not the best webcomic series I’ve read! Hands down!

    1. I’m the most recent anonymous smh… got too excited to finally post a comment on a relevant/recent comic

      1. Welcome.

        However, what with my recent drinking bout with Diet Shasta Cola, I’m not sure that I don’t recognize your name or not. So let me get the welcoming basket process started.

        mR. Blue walks over to the hazardous materials pile and pulls out a used gift basket donated by Juniper. Into it, he puts three books of Cooper Coupons.

        Okay, here you go, other’s may or may maybe not put stuff into here. Your mileage may vary. Oh, and with that, I also have the left front tire off of MC Khan’s recreational vehicle.

        1. Be welcome and enjoy.

          For the welcome basket I suppose I can throw in this 20′ fiberglass insulation (no solid fiberglass for the exterior, just a lot of loose fiberglass insulation) sculpture of McFatFat. Much like McFatFat, it’s not recommended to spend an extended period of time downwind.

  9. I only take the odd pictures myself. Drives my friends and family nuts.
    Congrats to both of you.
    I once squeezed a colapsed queen bedframe into a 3 door Ford focus, headboard included, and drove it home 20 miles. I will admit it was tight. My landlord said I looked like I was in a clown car.
    Thank you for all the great comics.

  10. Is that a desk in that car, as in “I got some fuckin’ business to get done” or is it a podium, as in “I got some fuckin’ business talk to get done”
    Hmmm… Could also be really serious 3 card Monty grifter…. So many question!

  11. Lol, you think that desk is bad, you should see some of the idiotic crap I’ve hauled. I towed my 89 crew cab dual truck home with my 95 chevy astro van. When I was in highschool, I pulled my 1988 F-150 home with a tow dolly with my 1972 VW super beetle. It had a stroker motor and disc brakes, so it had more power then the sad 302, but was still a funny sight to see regardless haha

  12. Soooooooo…. I literally discovered your comic a month ago but didn’t start reading it until last week. I’ve basically read it non-stop(as much as one can with a job and semi-life) and it’s one of the best, if not the best webcomic series I’ve read! Hands down!
