JEFBOT.151_Changing Courseson June 9, 2009 at 3:22 am
…Annnd we’re back. A big thanks to Kevin and Stan of the SubCulture webcomic for their awesome guest strip last Friday!
And yes, jefbot has a hamster! Two, actually. Some of you may remember their introduction from way,way back in JEFBOT.28_Hamster God. As I mentioned in the blog to that strip, I have plans for the hamsters, I just haven’t gotten to their storyline yet. It’s been a long time in the planning, and that arc still won’t be explored for quite a while, but hopefully this will introduce them back into the BOT continuity with more regularity so we can get to their tale sooner.
Aiie! Cornfather gains a villain identity – Ferret Face! I mean, hey – if a ferret was hanging off your face, wouldn’t you feel villainous?
if the Cornfather/Abraxas symbiote became a villain, would their archnemesis then be jefbot, Murrday!!!?? :-O
This one tickled my funny bone! Musashi is an absolutely adorable name, for such an adorable little creature! Me thinks Cornfather needs to invest in a mask of some sorts, so then he can “save some face” *Slaps knee* I made a funny! The last panel is soooooooooo cute–between Jefbots expression, to Musashi’s lil head turned checking out the Abraxas face action. Kudos!
ha! love the pun, Spanky! and glad you found the little guy adorable. “musashi” is the name of a russian blue cat of mine (hence the hamster’s grey color) that was adopted by my niece years ago.
So, what is Musashis friend called? I bet Cornfather is slowly getting fed up with ferret torture. This makes it, what? Third time? Actually I rereaded Jeffbot commics from begining – again – and decided to finaly ask you, so here goes: Jeffbot can I use that godness beautiful hamster picture from Hamster God chapter summary as my avatar? Its not only adorable but cool and dangerous too. You can just see it in its eyes how its targetting your face. Abraxas obviously can tell that Musashi isnt just some pushover, thats why he goes after Cornfather. Besides, I suspect that he tastes better…
you can absolutely use that picture as your avatar, Maryz – i’d be flattered! i’m going to change that “Hamster God” strip eventually to reflect the change from Musashi’s brown fur to the grey he’s sporting now, so if you like him brown, you better take it soon!
and: Musashi’s friend’s name is “Momo.” 🙂
Oh, I forgot about the hamsters! I like this running joke of the ferret on Cornfather’s face — LOL!
thanks, Stan – the running joke tickles me, too. poor Cornfather. heheh.
Poor cornfather. If you keep torturing him, he might stop being your friend. Its just not nice DX XD
hey, it’s not my fault if Abraxas finds the Cornfather’s face offensive and/or delicious, is it, DJ? is it!? okay, yeah, it is. 😉
Hi there Jeffbot. Been a fan for a while and DaughterJudy convinced me to get a commenting account….by making it for me. Anyways, great comic as always.
welcome to the comments, CasullandJackel, and thanks for being a fan! gotta love DaughterJudy. 🙂
That’s funny, because it’s so true! Animals LOVE the Cornfather! Awesome job Jefbot!
animals love him, but the Cornfather despises them for some reason, funnyshaffer! 😉
your pets terrify me.
you should meet my sisters, skinny.
Really great work, bot! Super funny. The last panel is HYSTERICAL. I’m just glad those animals are just cartoons. 😛 😉
you never know Michael, Linda could drop off a ferret any day, god forbid.
ESTABLISH DOMINANCE, CORNFATHER…ESTABLISH DOMINANCE!
i love that movie, John K! i laugh every time.
when did musashi become a rodent? he eats rodents!
heheh. true dat, Fig. hamster Musashi’s fur is grey now in tribute to the awesome feline. 🙂
Maryz: “So, what is Musashis friend called?”
Yamato, perhaps? After the WWII Japanese battleships?
P.S. Jeff, why does Abraxas hate poor Cornfather so? (Other than it being obligatory under the Rule of Funny — specifically this one.)
although i do love the name Yamato (cuz of the battleships you mentioned, but also due to the Space Battleship, as well as a decent Japanese restaurant near where i work!), Mu’s friend is named “Momo” for reasons that will become clear in the future *insert ominous music here*. heheh. and it’s not definite whether Abraxas is hating on the Cornfather or just hungry. 🙂
Awww… I wub jefbot’s cute smile in the last panel. It makes me forget what a cunning evil mastermind he is most of the time.
*runs away laughing evilly*
Does “Musashi” means anything??
And I don’t think Abraxas should STOP harrassing Michael so much. One of these days the Cornfather may SNAP. Hmmm… that would be an interesting story… The “revenge of the Cornfather”. >_> Heck.
*hides under the computer desk*
It should have said:
AND DON’T YOU THINK ABRAXAS SHOULD STOP HARRASSING MICHAEL SO MUCH?!!
Or perhaps it’s the lack of caffeine in my blood. Gonna get me a big cup of coffee… but then I would have to get out from under the computer desk… tsk.
ha! i liked it better the first way you put it first, Sonitan, with Abraxas NOT stopping his harassment of the Cornfather!!! heheheh. and “Musashi” is named after my former cat (now my niece’s), who was named after the famous samurai, Miyamoto Musashi, and Musashimaru, one of my all-time favorite sumotori.
look closely at the second panel. see the way musashi eyes seems to be directing abraxas to attack cornfather…..beware of musashi
holy hamster hypnosis, JF3! you may be right!!!
Heh that was unexpected!
ferret attacks usually are, speearr. you gotta watch out for those sneaky weasels. 🙂
musashi’s friend is sha-do-do…. ps. I’m back, I’ve been on Vacation.
also, do I get any money for subculture using my image? and if so, how much?
Xinda, who ever said there would be monetary compensation? XD
“(…)named after the famous samurai, Miyamoto Musashi, and Musashimaru, one of my all-time favorite sumotori.”
Don’t forget that it was also an important Province.
judy, there’s always monetary compensation, ask my husband…
“You know, this isn’t going to end well.” FERRET–>FACE

yes, yes, it ends well for everyone but him HUZZAH!
