For Halloween Mr. Fish goes as several thousand tiny ghost cut-outs.
An army of ghosts…
Mr. Fish looks miserable.
No, I know what that look is
It’s the same expression I wear when shaving
I think that’s just his generic look.
He has a permanent ‘me gusta’ face, lol
Ha ha!!! He TOTALLY does!
It’s a perma-derp
considering all the blunt-force trauma I don’t think anyone should be surprised
Just like a bulldog! A big, blue fishy bulldog.
Considering the constant hits he got well…hitting other pokemons…remember, Jared using him as a weapon 0.o? the derpy face makes sense…
LOLs. So true. WHenever i’m shaving & stares @ the mirror, it goes like that XDDDDDD
And then the Army of Ghosts became Cybermen.
that episode sucked so hard :/
Amen. Doomsday. Season 2 finale. Question: When the daleks and cybermen and rose and the doctor are being sucked in, why isn’t Mary Jane Smith?
Sarah Jane. For the love of god, she was the best companion in the history of the show (if you think Amy Pond is better, then you have _not_ watched enough of the Fourth Doctor), please get her name correct.
Her actress is also dead now, so all the more so. Respect the character.
Nay. Donna Noble for ALL the wins.
Ooh now his face is immune to normal attacks.
Your comment put the biggest grin on my face.
And fighting attacks!
But now he’s weak to Dark attacks! Strap a flashlight to his head!
Naw, paint the cut-outs with glow-in-the-dark paint.
Or shine an ultraviolet light on them so that they glow!
Just do all 3!
No, a jack-o-lantern!
I wonder how many hooves worth of glue he’ll end up using on Mr. Fish.
Wait… the comic is out? AND COLORED? D: Google reader didn’t tell me
I’ve noticed the RSS feed has a considerable time delay, probably to assist with load balancing.
Explains why, till I see a new comic, there are already about a billion comments on it. :/
I doubt many people would probably get the joke, but if I were Jared(although I don’t know if he’s ever played the system this particular game was on since all we see him with is an xbox360, not that I have anything against it, I own one myself) I would dress Mr. Fish up as Serris for Halloween.
Metroid reference FTW
See, I’m not sure I really want to see Jared dress up as Samus.
JARED FOR SAMUS 2012
Dude. No. So wrong. Wouldn’t objecct to seeing Samus wander trough the Agency though.
I want to see Jared dressed as Samus while Samus wanders through the agency.
I wanna see the whole agency dressed as Samus while Samus wanders through the agency.
I want to see the agency building dressed as Samus while Samus wanders through the bar questioning her existence.
Isn’t Samus a woman? Why would she be at the Agency?
Jonesy is friends/girlfriend of the Commander, she has a reason to be there. Why would Samus just be hanging around an agency dedicated to helping super manly guys adjust to ordinary life? Unless someone mistakes her for a guy and sends her there by accident.
When the first game was out, millions of gamers around the world made that very mistake. It ccould be such a common mistake in her life in this world, that it’s not implausible for her to be there.
It’d be funnier if Jared did dress up as Samus, and somehow missed the part where Samus was not a man…and then met Samus.
Probably meets the shoulder width requirement. Besides, it’s always nice when someone does a macho Samus as opposed to doing a sexy Samus.
Awww… Mr. Fish loves Jared so much (or he is so spaced out) that he’s willing to stay still for all that.
It could be the fumes from the glue…
He might still be exhausted from his hyperbeam attack.
My theory is that this isn’t the first Halloween that Jared’s done this, in fact far from it; it’s now *the* Halloween routine and Mr. Fish just knows to stay still like this until Jared’s done.
Mr. Fish cracks me up nearly as much as the Donnie Darko reference.
I hope the cutouts are water proof because I just keep thinking about if Mr. Fish needs a swim in the mean time…
Nah, ‘course they are.
Course that could be another reason why it takes weeks.
I was thinking the same thing about the glue. If it’s Elmers it washes right out.
Halloween prep is serious business.
Jared, you’re lucky that fish dragon snake thing loves you
Just imagine if he decided to forget ‘don’t eat Jared!’
Man, Jared is going to be doing this tedious thing for ages. He must be into the JRPGs.
Well, considering he’s FROM a turn-based RPG that rewards diligent grinding…
I can only imagine how Mr. Fish will look like when he’s done.
Possibly liek this:
I think it would be more like this
It’s amazing how Mr. Fish has that exact same face that dogs do when you put a costume on them.
So true. Maybe my dog should go as Mr. Fish instead of a pumpkin this year…. Exact same expression and everything.
I’m just surprised that Jared is responsible enough to start this early.
The only time Jared is responsible is when it involves doting on Mr. Fish.
It is a mystery~~
Thank god. It wasn’t just me.
Umm… What is the point of that website?
Sometimes I feel like the only person who knows what that is.
What’s yer costume this year?
poor mr. fish… hope they don’t take as long to come off!
If Jared put the ghost-cutouts inside Mr. Fish’s mouth, he could argue that Mr. Fish is going as the Well of Souls, or something along those lines. Who would argue while looking down Mr. Fish’s gullet?
i wonder what Kratos will wear this year and are those ghost glow in the dark?
Oh it would be great if they did!
But wouldn’t white glue wash off when Mr Fish goes back to his natural environment?
Well, when was the last time you actually saw him in the water?
Huh… I never thought about that, but its true!
that’s a lot of fish to cover. also aren’t most of Mr. Fishes emotions conveyed through his eyes since his mouth is a perpetual frown?
Hey look, a Donnie Darko reference.
Mr. Fish can go as tempura for halloween!
An eggplant would be cool too.
He puts up with so much shit.
I guess its cause he knows everyone’s secretly jelly about the laser beam thing.
Spookle Motion. Love it.
I swear to God those better be glow in the dark!!!!
I can see this animated in my mind’s eye, and it is perfect.
Everyone keeps talking about how Mr Fish puts up with so much – am I the only one who read this and though ‘Wow, Jared tries so hard to be a good tamer’. He puts so much effort into making sure Mr Fish doesn’t feel left out of the festives.
I think it’s because Mr Fish looks bored/annoyed – unless you remember that his face is basically locked in that position, even when he’s happy, e.g. http://thepunchlineismachismo.com/archives/150
Jared is really one of the smartest guys there.
He found a way to make MAGIKARP effective.
Well he may not be the most conventional trainer, but I think we can all agree he does love Mr. Fish quite a bit XD I can’t imagine too many people going through the trouble to glue a thousand or so little ghosties to a giant creature like this. I bet you the only reason he doesn’t just sew together a bunch of sheets though is due to lacking a technique slot for it.
You are not alone. Mr. Fish has a permanent expression on his face so he he can’t express any other emotions that would signify a bond but we see the bond when Mr. Fish does not eat Jared or crush Jared or destroy things Jared loves. He does most anything Jared asks of him and that shows loyalty.
Now when will team Rocket show up so Pyramid head can kill them.
Pyramid head to team Rocket: Your songs get progressively worse throughout the series!
And then he kills them, right?
Can you honestly think of something that could kill Team Rocket? What haven’t they already lived through?
They were never eaten or gutted.
Actually, they have been eaten, Victreebel used to do that all the time, and it’s full of acid.
As for gutting, you’d have to penetrate their skin and if a swarm of pissed off Scyther couldn’t do that, neither can you.
How tame is Mr. Fish that he is willing to put up with that?
I thought Jared would’ve just given Mr. Fish a little Gengar hat, but this is also excellent.
A Clockwork Orange Mr. Fish popped into my for some reason when you said that.
Mr. Fish shoud go as … METAL SEADRAMON.
Seriusly he is perfect for that costume
A Pokemon dressed as a Digimon… I see nothing wrong with that. Nope, no collapsing dimensions here! Moving on.
Well, last year Jared went as Tai.
Makes sense, ostensibly the tradition IS to dress as something that is a horrifying monster to you.
So better to go dress as Edward Cullen then.
Or a sexy cat.
i really do not want to see jared as a sexy cat. I will live quite happily the rest of days haveing NOT seen that.
Poor mr fish for the love of god hahahahaha
Anyone else think those ghost decals were tooth decals at first? Just me? Okay.
Jared should go as Donnie Darko. Saw it last week on netflix. it was awesome.
Well no one can accuse the kid of lacking determination…that’s a lot of ghosts…
How much did he spend on those things?
I wonder what $500 of Halloween candy would be like?
You can’t put a price on love.
I wonder how long it will take to remove the ghosts and stick little raindeer (or Stantlers) to Mr. Fish for Christmas.
This made me chuckle.
Totally should make a parody of you own comic one day “Womanly Women Doing Womanly Things” and have all those prissy ladies piss Jonesy off~ ;p
Girly Girls Doing Girly Things?
I actually opened a tab and tried Thepunchlineisfeminism.com…
I was have half afraid I’d accidentally stumble on Coelasquid’s secret Yaoi stash.
If you do, link it.
I laughed so hard at this I pee’d a little.
I love Mr. Fish, he gives me feelings of Happy.
I swear, Mr. Fish’s face needs to be one massive wallpaper. It’s about my favorite thing in this comic, and that’s a hard, hard contest.
Short. Simple. Fukken sweet.
It’d be really cool if all those ghosts glowed in the dark.
Where did he get all those ghost stickers?
Moreover, how did he pay for them? Opened another epic jar?
He’s using glue so they’re not stickers. Probably just paper cut outs.
I wonder if Jared will ever catch another Pokemon…?
He caught all those hundreds of Magnamites, Remeber?
I Love this comic. SOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!
XD Saw this on tumblr. I need to check for updates more :)
Jared needs to dress Mr.Fish up as any of those horror movie worms
Mr Graboid! :D
I hope you remembered to use glow-in-the-dark ones
