Now if scientists could just genetically engineer a pet that could play videogames with me, i’d be a very happy person, indeed.
Try having a kid. It works just fine D:
yeah, but by the time he or she gets old enough to play, my gaming skillz are gonna be old and busted. 😉
HAHAHAHAHA! I’m still laughing after reading this. Between Cornfather’s scratches, and the last panel with all of the comedy gold going on it, I’d have to say I’m loving the (BAD!)weasel *ahem* ferret storyline! And I don’t think that a newspaper will do much for a ferret, on a dog maybe.. but not a ferret. Cornfather better check himself, before Abraxas does the same to him as he did the game controller! Another great one! :-D!
true dat, Spanky – Abraxas could probably shred that magazine, then the rest of the Cornfather’s face if he got swatted. heheh. and glad you’re liking the current storyline! 🙂
Hahaha! I’d hit that foul smelling lump of fur and claws with a newspaper too.
ha! while i don’t condone violence towards animals, Eptha, i’d really have to think twice about that policy if my videogame systems were under attack. 😉
Awww poor controller. Considering they don’t make my favorite controller anymore, I’d be pissed if I had a pet that destroyed it. Funny Strip ‘Bot
thanks, DJ! so now i’m curious: what’s your favorite controller? was it the u-force? 😉
Poor little Abraxas! He can eat my game controller… Good one JEFBOT!!!
NO! that would only serve to reinforce that naughty behavior, JP!
AH, the Cornfather displays wisdom gained through harsh experience. ‘Bot would do well to listen to his friend on this subject, but will he? WILL HE?
On another note, I was just over at Dave Kellett’s Sheldon before I came here today and noticed your ad on his site; the big one that cycles through different images from the strips noting that All Sith Lord Roommates and Multiethnic Actor Geeks are in fact Normal and I just wanted to compliment you no it. Clever playing about with the tagline, actual strip numbers to go along with the images… as a graphic design nerd, I dug it. Were I not already a regular Jefbot reader who would have been over here today anyway this ad would certainly have aroused my curiosity to point where I’d have had to come and check out just what was going on over here.
heheh. it would take a lot to get jefbot to take a swipe at Abraxas, Jed, especially since the ferret seems to like him. but we are talking about bot’s videogames here, so you never know…
also, thanks for the feedback on that ad, Jed. as a graphic designer, i’m glad you dug the design. i’ve been experimenting with it over the past couple’a weeks, so it’s nice to know people are actually seeing it in the wild. 🙂
Yep…. that’s exactly what they do! Bad little critter! I love how The Cornfather doesn’t move or change one bit from frame one to frame three… Awesome job Jefbot!
thanks, man! yeah, after the face-mauling, the Cornfather seems to be pretty over the little guy. 🙂
haha. watching abraxas tear up that controller is high–larious! oh “pets.”
on a side note, you’ll be pleased to know that with dr. bombay’s return to the rescue group, he is back to “gandalf”.
you had to return dr. bombay… err, gandalf!!? crap. 🙁
hahahaha! Hilarious! I missed the previous strip so I was like what the hell is wrong with the Cornfathers face. Now I get it.
yup! sometimes exposition is just really clunky, so i’m relieved to hear people like yourself will turn back a page or two to find out what’s going on.
Nice mute textures on today’s strip, bot.
Atomic pets! What’s next, league battles and little round capsules used to contain them? Pish, no way…
heheheh. if you start needing a pokedex to identify jefbot’s pets, it’ll be time to start worrying about this strip, Foxmouse. 😀
That’s a strong ferret, or a controller made of paper. All seams to be going nefariously well with Xinda’s plot to cause discomfort and anguish to our heroes peaceful apartment.
we’ll have to wait and see if jefbot gives Xinda the satisfaction of letting her know all the disruption her little gift has caused, CheddarMan. 🙂
although not a good pet, i do know a fuzzy creature that digs a good co-op gaming experience.
if this is the creature i’ve heard about that subsists on a diet of gin and beer nuts, just tell me who i need to make the check out to, eleventeen. 😉
I guess Abraxas just isn’t into videogames…
…and it’s breaking jefbot’s heart, reynard61!!!
you know, they do genetically engineer women to play video games. if you’re super lucky, you even get a controller-wielding love lady who does everything a ferret does.
and i bet such a catch would let you call her “abraxas.”
where can i meet these “controller-wielding love ladies,” woze!? and does calling them “abraxas” cost extra? 😉
I noticed scratches on Cornfathers arm in the 3rd panel that werent there in the first. Look at right above his elbow in those 2 panels and ull see some scratches in the 3rd that werent there before.
good eye, Sgt Kazcmyzs! i was always a fan of those “can you spot the difference?” puzzles (in Highlights magazine, i think?) when i was a kid and have no qualms about making subtle differences between panels.
Brilliant! Really funny, bot. Way to work in all the elements of your life: video games, rat-type animals, and a magazine. Great job, man. 😀
for the most part, yeah, but my comic books, toys, movie posters and dvds got no love in this one, Michael. 🙂
smack the bloody ferret. one thing i also hate is creature that destroys my console.
jeffbot in panel 3 doesnt look too convincing. something doesnt seem right about his expression and dialogue. well it could only be just me.
my cat once scratched three deep grooves in the top of my original xbox console, JF3, but i got over my anger once i realized it looked pretty cool. and i’m sorry you weren’t feeling that 3rd panel. i was going for a more “teeth clenched” response in this one, since i had him “open mouthed” and shouting in the last one.
I don’t really condone violence towards animals either…You kind of have to think about animals as children…that can’t understand sentences…they figure out that something is bad when they feel pain every time they do it. And most children and animals really don’t like pain, ergo, they learn not to do what you don’t want them to. Thus the reason that kids are so messed up today…they never learned to mind their parents 😀
i’m in 100% agreement with your last sentence, Eptha! and while i don’t condone cruelty to animals – loud, screaming and obnoxious children are another matter entirely. 😀
-bows head- I am a Sony person. Original Playstation and PS2 for me. My favorite controller is one that I got way back when I got my first PS2. Its one of those clear translucent ones that you can see all the parts in. Its worn down so much that there is a noticeable groove where the analog stick hits the casing. They don’t make it in gray anymore. :'(
no shame in being a Sony person, DJ! i love my PSone, PS2, PSP and PS3! and now that they ditched the SIXAXIS for the Dualshock 3, i’m loving playing my PS2 and PS3 games with a decent wireless controller.
Might not need the Pokedex after the battles by the looks of Abraxas and his desire to destroy. I’m still hoping for a confrontation with the toilet spider! Can I start placing bets now? $20 on the spider to lose and $20 on the Cornfather to make it out the rest of this arc unscathed.
I know, big risk for that last one, but hey what’s a little life without risk? :3
someday the critter behind the toilet will reveal itself, Foxmouse! just not yet.
Hysterical! I can Jefbot spending hours teaching Abraxas the finer points of Gears of War
ahh… if only, John K. 🙂
i see your point on the whole teeth clenching thing but it seems that u look more like disgusted…lol
btw..i pity cornfather. the things you put through for your friends. somebody send him to the hospital to check for rabies
in “this world” i’ve taken the Cornfather’s counterpart to the hospital more times than i care to admit, JF3. 🙁
The Cornfather looks good in red.
I have been wishing for a cat that could play video games, too. Of course, if she’s anything like me, she’ll cheat.
The ferret’s a little psychotic.
animals are overrated. what you need is Zeke.
my sister’s cat plays pokemon and wins most of the time, it plays with it’s face
