Wow, these nuns sure are devoted. If you took a snapshot of my thoughts while standing watch in the middle of the night they probably would be about something irrelevant like food, or rocks, or sex
Coming to think about it, that probably explains why I’m not a nun.
Pretty sure this is exactly why most of us aren’t nuns.
Ah, anyone feel up for some gnome drop soup?
still, I suspect that wasn’t the only way to get the door open, only the most amusing.
There must have been NUN other way.
No, she just makes a habit of that sort of behavior.
You mean that SHORT of behavior? :P
thieves that can steal AND kick butt are also
in SHORT supply.
but this could lead us to think LITTLE of the nuns
I applaud Bandit’s use of Dynamic Entrance.
Nice to see she had somewhere soft to land on…twice!
Just playing “thwak a mole”.
Not only did she stomp, she ker-stomped. I wonder how that translates in physics…
ker-stomp implies a slightly staggered double-footfall?
Site was down for most of twelve hours. Couldn’t get my GA fix.
Love Bandit’s canary-that-ate-the-cat grin.
In this case, its the cat-who-ate-a-penguin.
That’s a pretty badass canary.
“C’mon, all’s clear,,, now.”
Yeah. Damn those heathens. I mean, get it right!
“Our father who art in Heaven, bloodshot be thy eyeball…”
WTB more Ardaic.
More like [Ardaic] amirite?
I, good sir, am too epic for brackets. I am beyond the ability of any computer to link. You see… I am a paladin Fnip. And not a typical one; I’ve escaped from the interwebs entirely.
More like Internets. Amirite?
Nice reference to Destroy all humans. If its not it sure looks like it a lot!
The alt text…! The alt text…!!!!!
That as much as the comic had me on the floor!
Heathens stole my bike once. That’s why I hate ‘em.
Book Of Commandments 23:14:
“Blessed are the Strong and Hard-Headed”
I declare that Bandit is the most hottest of the crew now.
Pfff, speak for yourself.
I still got eyes for Syr ;D
Those are definately free range boobs it looks like. I wince at the bounce pain she is apparently use to.
I’m guessing, considering the amount of time She’s airborne, Like Frigg, Bandit’s probably using the ol’ Bandage-round-tha-boob trick.
She needs to tighten the binding then. If it’s really good and tight there should be next to no movement.
So you’re saying that there should be three thwacks in the third panel?
um… what do you feed free-range boobies? just wondering ya know…. my gf just rolled her eyes and walked off. was it a bad question? I’m a guy I don’t know….
Now just to be fair, these nuns did an excellent job. Many people in clergy are all to happy to help misguided people overcome challenges.
Why right here, they helped Bandit kick two habits at once!
Bravo sisters, bravo!
That nun needs some more time in nun school. You’re not a heathen if you worship a deity. A heathen is someone that worship’s no god.
If you worship a false god you’re likely an idolater, and if you worship a real god that’s the wrong one, you’re an infidel.
While I’m at it, if you speak in an insulting fashion about your god, youre a blasphemer, if you act against the commandments of your religion, you’re a heretic, and if you act against the doctrine of your specific church, youre a heterodox.
Just thought I’d clear that up.
Actually, a heathen is someone who doesn’t believe in a Judeo-Christian god. Someone that worships no god is an atheist.
I suspect that “heathen” meaning “anyone who does not worship a Judeo-Christian God” is a fairly recent development, and that ahdok’s definition is the more archaic usage (i.e., the version likely to be used by a medieval religious organization). Incidentally, I’d say that a more accurate description of “infidel” would be “one who has rejected the true God for something else” – aka “apostate”. in – fidel, in meaning not, fidel meaning loyalty = infidel meaning lack of loyalty. A similar construction gives us “infidelity”.
Actually, heathen comes from old english. It means you’re not a follower of the Bible. There’s argument over the etymology of the word, but it’s meaning is fairly clear. In any dictionary it’ll have that as the first definition and then something like “uncivilized” in the second.
P.S. It also works for Muslims since their religion is a spin off of Christianity the way Christianity spun off from Judaism.
I think, perhaps, despite its historic use, heathen has come to mean more than just a non-follower of Christianity and now means a non-follower of any specified religion or a pagan.
The English language is constantly being molded and changed by those who use it. As the generations of speakers come and go, certain words are pruned and new words sprout. Syntax changes; Lexicon evolves. A word’s meaning may change while its intent remains.
Perhaps an equivalent of non-Christian is paynim?
(These are just opinions btw. This is totally up for debate. Maybe I’m wrong?)
So all atheists are heathens, but not all heathens are atheists.
I believe this calls for a Venn diagram!
I thought an atheist believed in no god, whereas a heathen simply worshipped no god.
Why do I get the feeling the guards should carry hammers? :P
Nothing goes through flesh and bone like a good ol’ teaching ruler.
And if the rulers are flexible – there will be true horror. They will smack you in their holy fury until the walls are painted red!
The (mumbled?) thoughts of the guards remind me of the game ‘thief’ though…
Maybe they should have carry nun chucks
I suppose she’s stealthy… but without a cardboard box i don’t know if i can buy it.
how do they know frig used to be a sister?
The manner of the sisters’ dialogue while they took Frigg out suggests she used to be one – and they may well have said something after she blacked out to each other. Remember that Bandit was watching.

This reminds me of a definition from the Demon’s Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce:
“Impiety: Your irreverence toward my deity.”
*dances about in good heathen fashion*
I still wonder how long it will take me to be fed up with this… On one hand it is justifiable to a certain degree. On an other hand, it sure gets old to be told constantly “we firmly believe you are an idiot and this is the vague and general idea we have of your world-view that by chance has nothing to do with reality, but we still roll with it ’cause making others look idjots iz funz.”
