New Comics Every Weekday - Written by T Campbell & Phil Kahn - Illustrated by John & Jason Waltrip
As Fearless Fosdick, the Dick Tracy parody in Li’l Abner used to say, “Mere flesh wounds.”
I just got it, her name is syringe. I can’t believe I didn’t get that.
Syringe doesn’t rhyme with orange, though.
Nothing in the English language rhymes with Orange. One of those little trivia bits to make our lips twitch into a grin at Byron’s statement.
The surname ‘Gorringe’ technically does; as does the coined word ‘Borange’ (although I believe that has the definition “A Word That Rhymes With Orange” so probably doesn’t count.)
Month, Silver and Purple are also oddities. Rhymes hate colours, I guess.
To find a rhyme for silver
or another ‘rhymeless’ rhyme
requires only will, ver-
bosity and time
I’d imagine “door hinge” or “no fringe” kind of rhymes with orange in my own little world depending on the pronunciation.
Orange rhymes with fringe. It’s alll about the pronunciation. Orinje. See. Only people who read out words as they’re written can’t rhyme Orange…
The Blorenge is a mountain in Monmouthshire, southeast Wales.
Gorringe is a rare English surname.
And both rhyme with Orange.
Any twerp’ll rhyme with purple if contractions are allowed.
And apparently “hirple” is a Scottish word for “limp.” Who knew?
Actually, there’s a few words that rhyme with purple. Check out the linked youtube video.
“Chilver”, a ewe lamb, is the rhyme for “silver.” W. S. Gilbert of Gilbert and Sullivan fame pointed out that “millionth” is a rhyme for “month” – it simply has more syllables.
Actually, the word sporange, which is part of the reproductive system in some flowers, rhymes with orange.
Wait, who’s “Graiya?” I’m assuming some sort of deity, but the Google, it does nothing. :-)
Gaia, maybe? Greek earth goddess.
Dude be trippin’ balls.
Graiya seems pretty likely to be a Gaia analogue.
I bet you know this, and will headdesk when it’s pointed out. I am sorry.
Barely related to the current topic, I want that outfit. So much, it almost makes me resort to lolspeak. This comic is driving me to atrocity.
Oh, Gaia definitely came to mind; I just wasn’t sure if that’s what we’re supposed to take from it.
Graiya struck me is a blend of Freya and Gaia
Grain + Gaia + Freya. IE that really EARTHY goddess…
I imagined his voice going up a couple octaves in the last panel.
Presumably, only dogs could hear the alt text.
Man this reminds me of when I was a kid and everybody had to get their vaccine shots.
“First, I’m going to kill you.” <3 ~Arny
I laughed so hard at the last panel. The accuracy of his statement doesn’t match his look at all. It’s great.
Love Syr’nj’s expression in the last panel.
Yes…. but do they get the informaaaaation?
(for the old timers)
Magnificaaaaaation… magnifcaaaaation…. magnificaaaaion!
I feel Syr’nj’s shadow in the last panel is sort of distorted. Her right arm and shoulder are missing, her chin is too short and thrusted out. The silhouette – in my opinion – should be more curved, showing a line with hairline, eyebrow, eye, cheekbone and chin. I don’t know how to outline that without being able to make a draft of what I mean : /
Maybe this will work:
Actually, i think it would go more like this:
< (" <)
\( " )/
It’s Kirby! Hi Kirby! this is Kirby when he realized he wasn’t recognized
Looks like a shadow puppet of Bart Simpson saying “Eat my shorts”
I like it it makes me feel happy :DD lolshadow is pleased.
Actually the parentheses didn’t help at all.
So torture won’t work and Payet is a douche, whatever do our heroes resolve to? Drugs of course! Drugs are always helping heroic people do heroic things!
Just kidding. Syr’nj’s method is definitely more effective than a spoony bard. If she’s packing stat enhancer ‘roids then the spoony bard is completely obsolete! Drugs solve everything!
*Does LSD and then falls in a convulsing, drooling mess on the floor.*
Anyone got a mop?
I don’t, but I do need a body for experiments and he’ll do just fine, thank you.
We can clean it with his hair.
Syr’nj’s expression says to me: “I keep expecting more of the human race…and then I meet them.”
At least she’s got Payet’s number down. I was really afraid she was going to be smitten with him for some inexplicable elfin reason.
Gravedust is infinitely cool, but I really like the way Syr’Nj represents “the outside, looking in” for this party.
I wish to know ‘the stories’ that he speaks of.
I love that he continues to talk in ‘I’mabouttoshitmyselfese,’ proving that the potion has no effects on his emotions, he just starts saying how things really are in a completely paniced matter. I wonder if he is even aware of what he is actually saying.
Gah, is it just me or the RSS doesn’t update?
The alt-text in combination with the last panel makes it seem like we’re about to break into song. Is it time for the musical episode already?
Y’know, that last line sounds exactly like something that would come out of a Dr. McNinja comic…
I like where this is going.
I tried reading McNinja once, but navigating the archives proved difficult.
Musical episode, bleh. That means Payet will sing again. What have we done to deserve that?
She is my favourite character =) Not sure why yet, but these things happen mysteriously.
