This might seem like it's going up an hour later than you're used to... Well, that's because we had been uploading it at 11pm our time, due to CF being wonky with the timer... I'm not sure how it's going to turn out, but we're on the new server, so I'm pretty excited about things.

Hopefully it means death to those problems with loading!

Anyway, big thank you to Kyo for his work on this one. It was a pretty smooth transition, and we're grateful for the effort.

Just wanted to point out that Shaggers sketched this after I joked about a Polar Bear blinking in a snowstorm after he turned down my previous suggestion... On the plus side, I think someone else (or someone elses!) have taken up the call and may be delivering on that one ;D

I might write more later, but I need to finish getting ready for work.. Have a great week everyone!

I was going to say "I wonder how long that poor bird's been lying there"...
...but then I thought "Wait, I wonder how long that poor crossing guard has been there! D:".

Don't get too much traffic there, it would seem. What with the tumbleweed and all...

'S long as your happy. xD

Something tells me that your page views will skyrocket for a couple days due to that image... :P
Jrade edit delete reply
We wouldn't want RZed to get hit by that tumbleweed, would we?
Magravan edit delete reply
@Guest - Matt, I presume ;P One of June's unplanned additions that made the strip better :D

@alparrott - Yeah, John could have been giving Beth a rose... Maybe next year ;)

@MarshmallowGherkin - That's what we were trying to convey... How barren that place was, which hopefully makes it seem twice as silly...

This is actually something of a true story, except it wasn't in the middle of nowhere... There's me, Aged 20+, crossing a crosswalk with a crossing guard there, and she yelled at me for not waiting until the second whistle... And it was a GHOST TOWN around the stop... I... think I can cross the street on my own, thanks... I was a safety patrol... or whatever the heck those were called? :P

@Micheal - Haha, stunned?

@greengirl77 - The plaid pants were a nice touch too ;) We used to know a guy who collected all the most garish plaid...

@ranger_brian_new - I doubt it :) Maybe if we had uploaded it as a separate update :D

What is the song? Trying hard to figure it out and Failing, must need sleep. I like the gag here, Drew must of had his Wheaties.

Oh the terribly pandering Valentine art...pander some more please. ;)
Shaggers edit delete reply
Please...please tell me that that is the muppets show mahna mahna...
Magravan edit delete reply
@Jamming - This!

I was actually going to go with a song from Heather Dale, but I came up with the idea at the last moment and didn't get her okay, so I didn't want to be presumptuous. Probably for the best, since this is a little more 2 friendly :D

@Shaggers - Happy to oblige, it most certainly is :D

And now that'll be stuck in my head ALL day. Thanks guys.
Magravan edit delete reply
It's the little things that make it all worthwhile ;)
Shaggers edit delete reply
I just now noticed that you mentioned my sketch of the polar bear...that combined with muppets music makes this one of the best pages ever :D

And now I think I remember what skrael was asking me about on chatzy, I totally would have drawn that but at that moment I didn't have the time to do it. But I can't wait to see whatever whoever is working on :P
Magravan edit delete reply
I don't remember what Skrael was asking you about ;)

I have to say, of all the Valentine's day bonus strips I saw today, I liked this one most. GJ ;)

However, that's certainly a weird page @_@
I love it.
PixieSingsBass edit delete reply
OMG It's me! I'm guest starring in a TOGM comic!!! That's so cool!! Thanks guys! Coolest Valentine's Day, EVAR!
Magravan edit delete reply
@redder - This one seems like it might be self-appointed :)

@Barra - She threw together the Valentine's picture pretty darn quick too...

@PixieSingsBass - I told her that you'd recognize it ;D I'm glad we got the opportunity to include it within a canon TOGM :)
PixieSingsBass edit delete reply
I have to say, I love the pose in the fourth panel. I look like I'm doing the moon walk or something. LOL
Magravan edit delete reply
We also debated just having a speech bubble to a music note, but ... well... It's Mahna mahna!
DSW edit delete reply
R.Z, you so crazy.

You're giving away his secret identity!

Magravan edit delete reply
Well hopefully you read the comic first ;D
SirWishbone edit delete reply
Not sure how I missed the bonus pic! Quite hot, I'm eager to see what else is forthcoming!
the_brigand (Guest) edit delete reply
Mahna-mahna is the shit! Perfect song for someone who looks like she's trying to be noticed yet standing in the middle of nowhere.

Mahna-mahna, I guess.
(have you ever heard the CAKE version?)
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
awww. the lady that helps kids cross the street is adorable! and she looks so happy!
Magravan edit delete reply
@SirWishbone - It was hidden where only the people who read the comments would see it ;)

@the_brigand - Nope... I've heard the Shadow Priest one and the one I linked :)

@Guest - She's based on a friend of ours :)
