Hey there, hope you guys had a good week so far!

So R.Z. is still a 2... On the cusp! but still a 2. Beth's pretty upset, even though she's trying to find a silver lining at the end...

In personal news, the food and toy drive that I volunteer is officially kicking off on Friday, and I'm going to be able to participate, so that's nice. With my work schedule, it's often hard to be available at the times when things come up, so it's always nice when it actually works out.

If you're on ComicFury and haven't noticed it yet, I'm organizing the Secret Santa this year, and the sign up page is in the Webcomic Discussion section... June is participating, and so we'll have another piece of fan art to post in the new year... Some big shoes to fill for whoever gets us though, TheLiz did such a fantastic job last year.

And on that happy note, have a great weekend, we'll see you on Monday :)

I tried to sneak in a few funnies on this one. :P

PS I love the title James picked for this one. :)

PPS I wonder how many people I gave bookmarks to on Halloween (while I took the kids trick or treating) ended up actually looking at the comic? :)

It's okay, RZ. You're a 3+ on our tests.

@Lunaris_Starchilde - Awwww...

@Skrael - I laughed at the "No Chad Zone" ;)

Aw, poor RZ. Thank you for killing the cat, satisfaction brought it back though :D
I love the last line LOL!

I'm glad that you enjoyed it... I wasn't terribly happy with the writing on this one ;)

Bright side: find one more brain and he's got it. And oh, don't we have a human present? :O
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
hmmh... one question short... if her retakes it in an hour or so he may be able to get that one....
Xenrin edit delete reply
@Magravan: Yup, the 'No Chad Zone' has now been verified Chuckle Worthy. :)

Sylene's not that bad! I mean, at least she's...uh...

Magravan edit delete reply
@Linden - Indeed, though I don't think John appreciates being thought about as a gift ;)

@model S - History has shown that he will not do any better no matter how recently he's done the test. This is the first improvement she's seen since she started administering it.

@MarshmallowGherkin - *phew* I was in violation for a bit there ;)

@Jrade - To you maybe ;) To Beth she's an annoying freeloader :P

I totally imagined John with a big bow on his head .... now that you mention it ... might use this idea in a Christmas bonus image. :P

I kinda figured that's where things were heading, if only just. (Or--*le gaspeth*--maybe he *is* a three, and purposefully got a question wrong! :o

One of these days, you're going to read a comic with no twists or turns and you're going to drive yourself crazy :P

Chad is not aloud in his room? xD
Magravan edit delete reply
Definitely not :) He's not allowed either, but that's a given ;)

I know my mind is deviating from canon here, but part of me keeps thinking, "He got frustrated and destroyed his paper! What if the paper were in slightly more readable condition...what if he had remained calm and collected...what if, what if, what if?"

Now I am also suddenly curious about what variation there might be within the numerical categorizations. Are the lines between them arbitrarily set?

Also...first Chad and now R.Z...Why do all Beth's family members want to date Sylene? Poor Beth.
ranger_brianna_new edit delete reply
Obviously, so John can have more fun with Beth. :P
Jonuichi (Guest) edit delete reply
You know Beth maybe if you hadn't been so stingy with the brains he'd be a 3. D:

I <3 R.Z. so much, he's so lifelike and adorable.
Magravan edit delete reply
@Violet - That's part of the test... How long they can keep it going... The lines between them are arbitrarily set to some degree, but basically they were categorized by their ability to function in society... If R.Z. becomes a Three, you'll notice a significant improvement in his dialect, even though he'd be on the bottom of Three-hood.

And I don't think Chad was so interested in the 'dating' aspect....

@ranger_brian_new - Actually, it's mainly to annoy Beth, because she's fun to annoy ;)

@Jonuichi - *gasp* Stingy with the brains? She only ate 2 people ;)
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
maybe if john gave up a little cerebral cortex it'd make him a 3.
Magravan edit delete reply
lol... He's so selfish :P
Dodom (Guest) edit delete reply
But what if he has a little piece stuck in his teeth and he swallows it later?
Magravan edit delete reply
Then he still turns into a Gremlin ... Wait :P
