Ah, the gallant reflex.
Lucky he didn’t get another pass through the strip club.
With fewer clothes.
Alllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll right CD! Why do I get the feeling that this 1 day training with an older Jeannie means LSH and Jeanie?
…And now, in an incredibly disgusting way, I’m flashing to B. Kliban’s “Eternally Leaking Sandwich.”
Yeah, I could never control mine.
Ah, marital bliss!
‘Old genie” Hm…
“Ms. Eden? Your cue, ma’am.”
Hhmm…. Are genies allowed to “retire?” Is this perhaps the reason there was a “vacant” bottle that started this whole mess? We’ve never learned how the bottle came into Jean’s possession. Could Ms. Eden–If That’s Her Real Name!–have been deliberately “careless” leaving it lying around? More questions than answers!
i had to read this 3 times before i figured out that it wasnt the sandwich she called disgusting… >.> talk about slow huh?
Neil has just realized that his ol’ buddy is _really_ a girl now. The plot thickens.
Awesome Cosmic Powers = One day of training.
PS: Welcome back CD!
Of course I meant to say ‘phenomenal’.
oh? and here i thought you were gonna say, Awesome Cosmic Powers–Itty bitty living space..
Alladin~ loved that old Disney flick
Jean’s got a LOT of learning to do — starting with learning about being a girl and the effects that has on guys.
And of course now that Neil is Jean’s officially-declared master for life, what sort of power does Neil have, and can they both get back to where they were when this all started?
“Jean’s got a LOT of learning to do…
[Now] that Neil is Jean’s officially-declared master for life, what sort of power does Neil have…?”
That is indeed the central question.
“You may SERVE this MASTER…DUTIES and RESPONSIBILITIES…SERVE with an older genie…”
To be sure, though, Jeanie’s going to have a har…difficult time accepting that she’s female now, and that Neil now regards her as female. It’s her own damn fault, too: It’s not just her boobs that set him off, it’s that girl clinging to your arm pose for protection that really lit up the male hard-wiring.
And Jean used to be a guy. He had a girl friend. He knows this, and given his rather self-centered, impulsive attitude, he would have reacted exactly the same way, but far less apologetically. Hell, she knows that. She’s projecting, big time, and I’m really looking forward to Neil taking just a little bit of advantage, and her resisting…oooh yeah. Good times, good times….
Jeanie knows just exactly how cute that “eep!” really is, and knows it’s like dangling a feather in front of a cat in a box.
took him long enough to figure that out
i wonder who the old genie will be
“You have boobs now Jean!”
Neil, you are stupid. That is all.
No, Neil is male, and contrary to popular opinion, “male” and “stupid” are not synonyms.
Yeah, he “knows” Jeanie is really Jean — but the fact is, the person he’s with now doesn’t look much at all like the Jean he knows.
And as has been said, one of the the things he’s reacting to is a nubile, very attractive female clinging to him for protection. This isn’t a nice, quiet, well behaved USB port to the cerebrum, mediated by complex software protocols and firewalls, it’s a quarter inch phone jack jamming a 70-volt ringing signal right into the hindbrain.
Even a very smart, nice-guy engineering dork like Neil is going bolt upright for that.
“Phone plug” not “phone jack”.
I hate not being able to edit comments. I may have to go back to the forums just for that, but I really like having comments attached to a specific comic.
you can be smart and a dumbass or not relieve stuff right away
It’s not so much Neil’s reaction to Jean but what he said afterwards, since he never knows when to shut his mouth. That’s what he’s stupid about.
I think Neil and Jean’s friendship is going to be a constant ‘one step forward, two steps back’ kind of thing.
Also, ‘old genie’ doesn’t mean the genie in question is retired or looks old. Contest winner genie, maybe?
Except, as we’ve recently seen, Neil’s got Jeanie dead to rights on this. Jean wouldn’t even try to “control his”, he’d revel in his role as master.
I do not know how I’ve missed this — Neil’s little smile in frame 4. Perfect.
What time is is in strip #78?
A little after noon? (The sandwich suggests a missed lunch.)
So… an entire day of training suggests not for the rest of THIS day.
Which means, several more strips before the guest genie appears.
Plenty of time for a nice dinner out.
(or magical takeout from around the world.)
((Which SOMEBODY should pay for. Maybe Jean should spend her money while she has any.))
And there’s the sleeping arrangements.
(Actually. That’s settled. Neil in Neil’s bed, Jean in the bottle. Bottle by Neil’s bed.)
In a future strip…. 5am…. a special guest appearance by R. Lee Ermey.
About the ‘takeout from around the world’ bit.
It’s dinnertime south of the equator also.
I suppose there are many 24hours a day eating places around the world.
Okay, I’ve been archive binging here, and I only started reading this comic an hour ago. It occurs to me that this question’s probably been answered at some later point in the comic, or I might have missed something, but I really just gotta ask… Did it ever occur to them to use that wish to, say, wish Jean back to normal, body-wise? Not to alter the time stream or anything like last time, but a body alteration. Or hell, while they have the opportunity, why not just directly explain the whole ‘accidentally rubbing the lamp/transformation’ thing to Lord Guano, and see if this crap can be sorted out? I mean, he’s standing RIGHT THERE, and seems to be the guy in charge, or at least know how this shit works. Unless the only real way to create new genies is to life-jack anyone who happens to brush a finger against one of those bottles, you’d think they’d have some procedure for this sort of fluke.
