Nothing has ever gone wrong by moving from dealer to grow-op.

I know this is random but I love the candle in the bottle :)

I got the Nirvana and Misfits posters; curious what the one ending in 'Tax' is, if a reference at all.

Not to turn this into a stoner's convention, but have you ever tried making a coconut? Drain out the milk (or drink it), use a knife to whittle three strategically placed holes, get a bowl piece and BAM! Hard hitting, I daresay, and should you need to hide it, just take out the bowl piece and it just becomes a hollow coconut. My only advice is that you cure it after the milk is drained so the inside don't spoil; this can be easily achieved by roasting the inside with a barbecue lighter.

I dunno. I don't partake much anymore, this was just an easy way to make a good pipe for under $2 (the cost of the coconut).

In any case, the Funhouse shall be greatly missed.

@snips, I think it might be an Anthrax poster actually...

Oh Patrick, how sentimental we've become...

Poster questions, this might help, though all it does is make me cringe at my art: http://picturesofyou.smackjeeves.com/comics/149992/1-03-the-cat-in-the-box-10/

Hank, I never went in for the toys much. Give me a good rolling paper any day. Joints seem to have gone out of fashion in the past years, which is a shame, because they were fantastic and brought a bit of ceremony that potheads today might lack. Of course, whenever one of my friends did get creative, they usually did it with metal or wood.

Oh yes, we took our shit seriously.

@Snips The "Tax" poster is "It's Important: Pay Tax" poster. Us Canucks love our taxes, because posters tell us we do.

Wow, it just clicked for me today that this comic is really a coming-of-age story, and I'm starting to feel how rounded out the characters have become. Of course, these guys also seem plenty genuine, I'd like to finish a bottle of whiskey with any of these lugheads.

Patrick, if you're gonna miss The Funhouse, there's only one solution: GET THE BAND BACK TOGETHER.

um, yeah
I live in Mendocino County. I have seen this scenario. I am desperately looking forward to seeing how this works out for this group in that location. BTW, I've been gone for a week and it's great to be back in time for a great new chapter.

I think Paddy Paddy Puddin' and Pie is possibly the best nickname ever.

Since we're all coming clean...
I just wanted to take a moment to say to you, Gibby, that I fucking love this comic.

I stumbled across it on the top webcomics site, looking for some new ones. And I started reading it, and honestly hated the prologue.

But, I wanted to know why Peter was such a little emo bitch, so I kept reading, and by the first chapter, I was intrigued. The art grew on me (and progressively got better), and the walls of text (I actually like wordy comics) were less dramatic and more natural-sounding.

Although, honestly, the art, script, pacing of events, etc. is irrelevant to why I read this, and I really wouldn't care if that was all complete shit. Your talent is your character development, and how each new page reveals new information about the characters, and we will keep learning their mysteries all throughout the comic. They're three dimensional, and you've resisted the temptation to show all of their complexities early in the story, but you do hint at them- making this comic especially enjoyable to re-read.

There's a few other comics I check religiously, and there's at least one of them that I check with spite and hate, because as stupid as the story and art are, I feel like I have to know the ending. The ones I do read and love are all U.S. history related, with fantastic art and exciting historical information and plots. And I enjoy their sometimes-sporadic updates, and every morning, I save yours, the best and most regularly updated (which I also appreciate), for last.

And yours is the only one of its genre that I read, because I usually don't give damn about this kind of story- whatever kind one would call this- because it's so hard to do well. So I would really like to thank you for fleshing out these real, human characters so perfectly, because it is a joy for me- and everyone else- to get to know them.

Although, as fun of a character as he is, I'd be really excited if Mulligan got arrested for dealing. I fucking hate him (so far). :)

awh man :(

missing the place
I think people are grimly mistaken on what Patrick is going to miss... hope that I am wrong though.

@Vicki: Mendocino County! My dad grew up there, over in Fort Bragg! Awesome.

Gibson, I confess, I've ever only had one joint in my life, and it was with one of my uncles. That was a good day indeed, haha
