JEFBOT.28_Hamster Godon January 23, 2008 at 12:01 am
I owned a pair of hamsters several years ago and devoted many processing cycles pondering what, if anything, was on their little minds besides food and exercise (they used the hell out of the running wheel, and would “monkey bar” back and forth along the top of their cage at all hours of the day and night). I loved those little guys and thought the strip would be a great way to bring them back. I have big things planned for them, so expect their return in the
near distant future.
Happy Birthday, dad!!! May you catch many, many plump salmon during fishing season this year (and then bring them back for the rest of us to enjoy, too).
Heavenly Days! Who knew what went on in your curious little mind! I guess there was more going on than just tending to the hamsters. 🙂 Love the strip – and the look back.
Will the Ham Sters have their ORIGINAL names in future scripts?
megalomania: a delusional mental disorder that is marked by feelings of personal omnipotence and grandeur.
I’m just sayin’….
All hail Hamster God!!!
Who knew hamsters could be so cute? Only Jefbot could make rodents look this good… and hamster poo. Congratulations, Jefbot! You truly are the greatest web comic artist on the web.
Hahahaha. I love this one. Ahhh pets. Our little angels. Damn, I know I didn’t win a Jefbot shirt, but can I buy one? Congrats Jeff P on scoring a win!
Great stuff Jeff! I love the word ‘poo’!
OUTSTANDING!!! I LMAO FOR AT LEAST 5 MINUTES!!!! Great job, so funny.
Jefbot, you’re a twisted, but funny god.
I remember the hamsters – they were always on the wheel going nowhere.
Happy Birthday to your Dad!!!!! We need to celebrate with #6.
Ok, dude now you’re scaring me.
jAnonymous, if by other things you mean videogames, then yes.
akira, no, hammy and ster will be using their aliases in the strip for now. oh, and maybe my megalomania will reach a more epic scale in the future. for now, it’s hamster-sized.
jeff payton, heheh.
michael cornacchia, can i use, “Only Jefbot could make rodents look this good… and hamster poo.” as a pull-quote for JEFBOT volume 1?
mark kelly, glad you love it! funny, the response to this strip was way more enthusiastic than i thought it would be. re: shirt. i’m flattered by the request – i’ve gotten a few emails asking the same question. problem is, they’re kind of expensive, but i might just put them up and see what happens.
mary, me too.
funnyshaffer, thanks!!! i aspire to LMAO!
lor, and could you want for more in a god?
ak, they were FREAKS on that wheel! with all the exercise they did, i had two, buff little hamsters. i might have to write a future bestselling book called, “The Hamster Workout Plan.”
john, heheh. good.
i’m still upset since the funeral… 🙁
“I had two, buff little hamsters”- it makes me think of them as Dieter and Schprockets. Did they disco, too? Good stuff!
unfavorite, me too. 🙁
mitch, they didn’t disco, but they did have austrian accents. weird.
Since you linked me over to this strip I just had to leave a comment. You have come a very long way with your art and style. I am definitely going to buy your strips as books when you decide to start doing so. The last panel of this strip. JB’s face reminds me of Cartmans when he’s having a tantrum over say cheesy poofs or something like that. Got me laughing quite hard to take a walk down memory lane.
big thanks for your comment about my art and style, spanks – it really didn’t seem like it was evolving all that much while i was doing it, only after looking back at these old strips do i see how much it has changed. and as far as books go – awesome! glad to know i can count on at least one order once i get it published! 🙂
This isn’t my favourite Jefbot ever, exactly….
But it’s very close. I won’t trouble you to explain why, just accept the kudos. =oP <3
Hilarious, even though hampsters don’t touch theyr poop
I can relate. I always wondered if animals think of us that way because of all we do for them. But then I got a hamster of my own, and I realized how much they do to spite us… how ungrateful.
Owned cats my whole life, I know they only pretend to be pets.
Piss a dog off, you might get bitten or growled at. Piss a cat off and you’ll be lucky to still have a face.
I did used to wonder when I had a rat, though, he only came to you if you made kissing sounds at him, which I fully blame my dad for, damn man kept kissing at him while giving him big hunks of cheese. -_-
