– I was having trouble with the new page, so I decided to work on it over the weekend and post on Monday instead. In the meantime, here’s some filler. This is obviously out of sequence.
– Part of the reason I didn’t get much done is because I learned the Hostess is going out of business and will be discontinuing Chocodiles. I started a facebook group called Save Chocodiles in the hope that if enough people post about how much they love Chocodiles and share their Chocodile, stories, photos and fan fiction that maybe some other company would take notice and purchase the trademark from Hostess. Yes, I know that’s not likely, but I think it will be fun anyway. Check out the page and request an invitation!
This page is so hard for tranlating. /jk.
I bought sketch card with MM: http://i50.tinypic.com/10debur.jpg
Yeah, sorry. This page will probably make no sense at all to most people, regardless of language.
That’s a great sketch. Who did it?
Leanne Hannah, coauthor of Blue Milk Special 🙂
I translate both comics, your and her, and once made crossover.
Now I bought her crossover and only your left.
Probably, I will buy season 2 book with sketch, remember it.
Cool. I thought it might be someone from BMS. That’s great!
Gem, you may watch this video for making more sense.
But it is not very useful for translating.
Oh noes! My terrible news interfered with comic creation! *feels bad*
But, you deserved to know. When I heard, I went, “The Chocodile lover must be informed!”
It is terrble to hear, but sometimes it is necessary to say bad things… *hug* Sorry you had to hear something so sad…
I appreciate you letting me know.
I have an update on the news- The people on strike didn’t return to work yesterday; probably trying to call their bluff on the threat of closure. As of today, Hostess is filing a motion with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to liquidate the entire Company.
Hostess is now gone.
Science, Science bo bience…
Twilight, Twilight bo bilight…
Shut Up, Shut up bo butup…
With her new-found family she can go on seemingly forever.
Oh yeah, and it’s “mee-mi-mo”
Not where I come from.
that’s interesting…but in the released version of the song it is “me-mi-mo”
I swear I was in College before I know there was a real official version of the song. It was just something we all knew as kids.
OK, so being obsessive I looked it up. There are like 12 different versions on line, but the “more official looking ones have it as fee-fi-mo. Meh, it just doesn’t sound right.
Um I always heard it fee-fi-mo, you already said f you see.
Continuity be damned! I like this a lot. Actually, you’ve just given me some ideas what to do when I’m in a difficult or time consuming page of my own comic. Thank you sir.
Hey, Hostess is selling their assets, so um, clearly you should start another Kickstarter to raise enough funds to buy the Chocodile brand and make ’em yourself! Clearly this is a foolproof plan that is not a fool’s errand! Maybe. There’s something about fools in there, I think.
I did consider this.
NO ONE TEACH HER THE ANNOYING SONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Or the song that never ends…
*… yes it goes on and on MY friends!
Some people…. STARTED singing it, not knowing what it was….
.. and they’ll continue singing it forever just because….*
In the photo, the expression on your face alone made this morning worth waking up. I do not know why but you have quite warming expression on your face there.
Giving Chocodiles to people is fun.
Second on the pic. That is REALLY cute. (And you are really photogenic).
Thanks, but you may be the only person that thinks that.
Now I have that song stuck in my head, and every fifth thing I think of now starts the whole rhyming cycle all over again… 🙂
Haha I can never get that name game when I was a kid, shot even until now I have trouble with the name game…I just suck at rhyming in general xD Love this filler ;3
But DUDE, tis is so sad that Hostess is going out of business D: But man, you gotta save me at least 2 Chocodiles because Lonnie and I still haven’t tried them yet XD I know, we’re missing out -__-
I don’t even know if I can get them any more. The ones currently in stores are very probably the last ones available ever!
I fell bad for MM and others that enjoy the Hostess brand snacks.
Now the question is how many people are going to sell them or buy them on the internet.
That song never worked for me regardless unless i used my second middle name.
The problem with Chocodiles is they don’t last very long, so you can’t really save them. They start to go stale after about 6 weeks. and they only last about a month in the freezer before getting brittle. So get them while you can.
Jake I JUST HAD AN AWESOME IDEA For the end of Season 3. Jake has a few hundred Medusa to take care of whats he going to do? He says he has an idea. Cue a Hostess strike line in the first panel. Jake in the second panel with a line of Medusae in Baker uniforms. Hostess is saved by it’s new employees who get paid in only Chocodiles. Of course they’re still impossible to find on the east coast because the east coast shipments are the payment for the Medusae.
Also is it ironic in “The medusa is not your friend” dream strip you were Dreaming about your favorite hard to find drink? because finding it is only a dream for you?
I actually found a shop in my neighborhood that sells Arizona Lemon Iced Tea. “Ethnic drink” my ass! Stupid racist distributor!
Jake you have my sympathy. Turns out it didn’t take a Zombie apocalypse to shut down Hostess after all.
Wow. When kids watch that movie in the future they won’t know what a twinkie is!
I heard a lot of flak about this on ThatGuyWithTheGlasses…. but no facts..
Since I don’t know what is going, to quote:
“What happened to the Twinkie?”
The short of it is that Hostess employees went on strike (I don’t know the exact details), the company decided not to meet their demands, and was forced to liquidate. Whether or not it will be sold whole or as pieces is unknown. Most people seem to think that the high profile products like Twinkies and Wonder Bread will be easy to offload, but that more obscure properties like Chocodiles might go without a buyer or be bought as part of a package deal. Either way there’s a chance that Chocodiles could vanish forever. Of course, there’s also a chance that the property could be snatched up and that we may see Chocodiles return to the National market. Sadly, a bunch of people are out of jobs because of all this.
¡Ay, no, Medusa’s going to have to switch to Gansitos!
Maybe the producers of American Dad would help with the “Save Chocodiles” campaign. You and they are the pop culture references on the Chocodiles Wikipedia page.
I happened to see Chocodiles in the Vegas Strip Wallgreens today. Thought of the comic and purchased one.
I used to do that all the time when I was a kid. 🙂
But not at 3 in the morning!!!
That was sweet! ( a werdo giving kids chocodiles… totally normal)
Yeah, people are always really weird about it. Or completely normal, I guess. Some kid will wander up to the booth and look at stuff and I’ll offer him/her a Chocodiles. All the sudden his/her parents appear out of nowhere, all polite and wary and nervous. We chat for a few minutes until they decide that I’m not trying to poison their child. Sometimes they don’t come to that conclusion and make up some kind of excuse about their kid not liking sweet things.
Jake is thinking “Next time I will make sure to lock her bedroom door”
Worst Case Scenario: Find a good ganache recipe and learn how to dip your own Twinkies (assuming they get picked up by someone else–wait, so it *wouldn’t* be the worst case…) o_0
Medusa will be heartbroken when she finds out there will be no more Chocodiles…
xD hahahahaha… Is it just me or the clock trying to stare her down?
I remember that song….. Ah, nostalgia XD
Blighted kid! >=|
for some reason, I thought she was speaking in huttese at first…
