[ “Floss” ]

Title Text: Did you know Housepets shares a birthday with a certain infamous comic strip? Name seems to escape me at the moment . . .

What could it mean? @_@

I'm not sure if I should laugh or not since I know what's being referenced here. :?

Nice job anyway, Biddy and Chaoko.

RIP Grape 2008-2018, first Peanut with the cheese, and now Grape was taken out by some floss. The fans have it in for the characters...

Edit: My god I just got the reference, I don't know how I didn't notice it. But it makes so much more sense!

Image quality is weird. Did you use a lossy format?

I’m not sure I’d use that floss,
after Peanut’s done his teeth
or even before, as seen here,
when we see Grape come to grief.
Even more Chaokotic than before
as the lad panics with his brush,
doing a new Foxes Biddying
and living his life in a rush.
Imagination says what he did
and tells it better than our eyes;
Grape was exploring string theory
and took the sofa on for size.

It’s not anti aliased, so the lines are all jagged. I broke my tablet and had to use my trackpad, and it’s harder to do fake pen pressure with the anti aliased brush tool. I also just kind of like how it looks, though that’s just my opinion.

When I saw the title I got the reference, and I was like "Ohh, so good use of 'Loss', hehe" and then it hit me... "Why 'Loss' funny?"
Why the **** did this comic put me on a reflective mood about an old meme? D:

(Still pretty good comic! one of my fav gueststripts =) )

For those of you that want an explanation for this strip: the internet says it better then me: http://knowyourmeme.com/news/heres-to-loss-the-internets-greatest-meme (you have to copy and past it yourself because a hyperlink would bleed though the blackout (sorry)). In addition to the position of the characters, the name of the strip and the headline on Mr. Sandwich's newspaper contain the word "loss", Grape is complaining to the artist through the fourth wall about using Loss for a punchline, and the alt-text is referring to the fact the original Loss strip came out the same day as the first Housepets! strip.

Also, Big thank you to Champion Wallace for pointing out the reference. I feel kinda ashamed I didn't notice it before.

I think Arvetis made just a pun there

grape, how did this happen? did you trip while holding the floss? you've gotta be really careful not to carry it wrong.

Bravo. It took me a few until reading the title to catch the joke. I'm at a loss for words

Eheh, nice pun. :P But, Grape, that's totally unexpected from you. :lol: That's not a yarn ball, then... :roll: Good Peanut washing his teeth like an human, instead of using that sort of fake bone. ;)
Very nice work, BiddyFox and Chaoko! :D

to be fair, it's not actually that bad. actually a pretty funny riff on the mess that was the original.

I just wanted an excuse to use that gif.

I found it in my bookmarks a week ago, I'm not sure when the last time i actually used it was, but i suspect it was on here since i apparently named the link "Dang It Chaoko"...
:lol:

Yeah, it was on here.

I still vividly remember the first use. :oops:

Anyway, I remember seeing my first parody of this on Sandra and Woo, but never would have gotten it if people didn't say "hah, shots fired at CAD."

Didn't look further. Fast forward a couple years, a bit of an influx of "is this loss" memes showed up on the Discord, so I finally asked what it was about. I determined that it was stupid in just how abstract it was and how much reaching was needed for it, which led me to despise it. :evil:

And Chaoko is well aware of this. :roll:
