Hey, you said to show some store spirit. And to the gelatin cognoscenti out there, yes, he brought a lot of ice.

At the very least, something clever would have been nice. Maybe even something mildly insulting. This? I am not amused.

Don’t mess with the classics.
I mess with everything. EVERYthing.
Is…is that a REAL THING? You know, that we could DO? O_O
Yes RotSman….the principal is true. It works in many situations with many different options to replace the pole
The White Guy
It makes The White Guy think, that it does.
lol ur joking please tell me ur joking! xD
Is this your first day on the internet?
The jelly pool? yeah. it works better with water storage crystals (do google image search) $30 worth will fill an entire paddling pool in a few hours. it’s not safe to eat it, but it won’t stain clothes or skin and it’s good for the lawn if any spills.
Third then -,-‘
lol, technically that’s the fourth comment.
Doesn’t it need to be refrigerated?
He brought plenty of ice, but having it fully set for this kind of thing isn’t a necessity anyway.
Well as long as we’re coming back to science…what about sand that gets tracked in there? Gritty = not sexy.
You have to admit the logic is infallable
1. create pool of jello
Underpants gnome FTW
The White Guy
The White Guy demands panties.
The Fat Anorexic
The Fat Anorexic demands a stripper pole IN the Jell-O pool.
No, no, no. Stripper pole near the picnic table; jell-o pool in the middle of the yard. Visits from the local paramedics ARE NOT sexy.
Lokitsu is correct. Haven’t we learned anything about stripper poles and lubricant?
That depends on the Paramedics, we had some extremely hot female paramedics when i was in college! Those tight uniforms are extremely sexy on the right people!
What corporate doesn’t know what hurt them. After working in a grocery store for many a year, trust me on that one… 😛
Works the other way around too. We got our store manager forced out of our store because we all hated him and he didn’t actually do any work. 90% of the employees pointed a blaming finger at him during the anonymous surveys for employees. The results were hilarious.
How does everyone get the non-generic pics?
I registered on Gravatar.com for commenting on a different site first and changed my profile stuff there. Any site’s comment board that uses gravatar the info will carry over to.
…I think, anyways.
Head over to http://www.gravatar.com and make an account. It works in a lot of places.
Muchos Gratzi everybody. Now to make an account that rocks.
It worked! My signature avatar is finally on here. Thank you Nick I am once again in your debt.
And so it begins, the legend of Soylent Grey will be told for decades to come.
Dammit, it didnt work. I came up with a cool name and everything!
oh, nm, there it is.
Wait, why change your name? Me confused.
Don’t do name changes, what if The Negro Guy decided to change his name? We would think he were some imposter. Just go with the same name you’ve been calling yourself since you’re gotten here.
The White Guy
The White Guy agrees.
…what happened to The Black Guy?
The Negro Guy
The Negro Guy’s name is The Negro Guy! Get it right.
Also, I think this is the first time in a long time where the comic title wasn’t a single word! :O
Actually, #205 was called SPF 1000- technically two “words”.
Well as long as it’s the Food Baron brand, it makes it all right I suppose. I wonder what color the jello it is? I am going to guess standardized green or yellow or something.
More to the point though, where did Nate get a hose to begin with? It would be have to be a pretty long hose to fill a pool that far away.
It’s Arne, and they have water hookups at the beach near the showers.
Also, look closely and you’ll see a lovely lime hue.
That’s more a sickly hue, surely?
The White Guy
The White Agrees, and don’t call The White Guy Surely.
That and the boxes of Jello are green.
If it is store brand, why do the boxes infringe on the Jell-O brand? No one can use Jell for gelatin. I’m just being a prick on technicalities. I do think the store brand should have some interesting staining effect, possibly on hair.
Correct me with some linkage on this if I’m wrong, but my impression is that “Jell” without the “o” is not protected. Trademark laws are very specific, and store brands do this type of thing all the time. Diet Dr. Perky, anyone?
You’re probably right, otherwise Sure Jell wouldn’t exist.
lol thats win….a pool of win… unless Pervis (was it Purvis…is that even his name..) goes in it… if he even makes it there
It showed him working at the Food Baron with the manager babysitting the store a few strips back, so unless he hijacks a car and drives there in the middle of his shift, I doubt that will happen.
No, his name is quite definitely NOT Purvis. That’s me.
I have seen evidence of this principle first-hand: I was attending a friend’s 18th birthday party, which was being held in the bard behind her house. There happened to be a row of metal poles holding up the front of the barn, and all except two of the girls started swinging and dancing around them. It was, of course, aided by the fact it was a rave party (and therefore had brightly coloured flashing lights), and half of them were drunk.
It was not the best party for me: raves are not of any interest to me because of the style of music, the lights and the drunk people everywhere (I was one of the two NOT pole-dancing or drunk). I would much prefer a tea party where the people attending were able to remember what happened on the night.
NOOOOOOOO! Not the TEA PARTY!!!
Oh, you meant an *actual* tea party, didn’t you? *^_^*
Yes, an *actual* tea party, with various forms of tea, cakes, biscuits and sandwiches, all laid out in porcelain dishes and silver trays on a tablecloth spread out on the lawn.
Chester would approve. 😉
NSFW, so adults only please! Done with taste in my opinion.
If anybody objects to reading the comic (thought i doubt the viewership here would) than i guess you’re not gunna get my joke cause I’m not explaining it.
Not exactly the tea party I had in mind, but that is a very well drawn comic…
The Negro Guy
The Negro Guy likes your avatar. Nicely drawn!
Thanks! It took a while. It’s done in ink and watercolours.
Oho! A Tea Party! You should invite myself to your next one. I’m a perfect Gentleman. Unless you have bunnies.
I will certainly keep you in mind when I plan my next one. And don’t worry – there are no bunnies, only a few mice.
Question: Does Bill’s apron really say “Kiss the cock”?
Yes that was established a couple comic strips ago. Check out comic 208.
No. The latter ‘o’ is partly smeared in grease and/or charcoal.
Arne gets creepier by the strip. Betcha he ends up in the jello.
True, but here’s hoping Aya does instead.
Something we can all hope for.
