T-Rex: I'm just left with an acute awareness that I could be wrong about some of the things I currently believe in. Not big things, like racism, but little things, like mohawks!

October 24, 2005
T-Rex: I think racism is BAD. It's like when you say you're fundraising for cancer - you're not in favour of it! You want to cure it. That's what I meant! Alright. T-Rex: not necessarily racist.

October 24, 2005
Tooltip: t-rex is certain about the big things, like racism being bad, but not about little things, like mohawks being cool. there are rallies in favour of mohawks that he has failed to attend.

October 25, 2005
T-Rex: Oh goodness, flappers! These were the 1920s equivalent of hipsters, only they looked like boys and had way better slang. The way they talked was the BERRIES. That means something was great!

October 25, 2005
Tooltip: alternate ending:
god: YOU KNOW THERE ARE LOTS OF FLAPPERS IN HEAVEN T-REX
t-rex: Oh man! I would love to chat them up and then totally smooch them!
god: WELL
THAT'S NONE OF MY BUSINESS REALLY

October 26, 2005
T-Rex: Man, how great would it be to have a TATTOO? Assuming it does not go disastrously wrong, it would be super cool!

October 26, 2005
T-Rex: We'd have to press our tattoos together to make them line up, and all the people would think we're married! Plus what if we got the tattoos on our lips? Okay! I'm going to stop talking now!

October 27, 2005
God: DUDE COME ON TELL PEOPLE YOUR EMBARASSING SECRETS
IT'LL BE SO MUCH FUN
FOR ME
GOD

T-Rex: And the secret is this: when I lost my virginity, I had the song "Tubtumping" by Chumbawamba stuck in my head the entire time.

October 28, 2005
T-Rex: I've decided to stalk a friend! Hah hah, why not? I will be the person they least suspect! This is because I'm violating the understood limits of our friendship!

October 28, 2005
T-Rex: Can you help me out?
Dromiceiomimus: I can, and I will! This is all in good fun, right?
T-Rex: RIGHT. We are NOT allowed to murder him.

October 31, 2005
Dromiceiomimus: Are you - you're going trick-or-treating this year, T-Rex?
T-Rex: Sure am! I have decided that giving it up when I achieved pubescence was a MISTAKE. I am going to dress up and go door-to-door and get candies! Woo! All I need is a costume and a way to minimize embarassment.

October 31, 2005
T-Rex: Hi guys! It turns out the reason adults don't go trick-or-treating is because you get berated at every house for being too old! Also some kids tricked me and stole my costume! It has been a night of revelation!
Tooltip: it was one of those 'i bet you can't lick your elbow' type bets that t-rex shouldn't have fallen for, but that's not really important to the story right now.

November 2005Edit

November 1, 2005
T-Rex: I tried calling an escort service once but it turns out that is a euphemism and all the people there were just interested in sex for money!

November 2, 2005
T-Rex: Well! I certainly hope I don't get prematurely invited to any PARTIES today!

November 3, 2005
T-Rex: You know what's better than school? Not being in school but still learning!

November 3, 2005
T-Rex: I've also incorporated into my autodidacticism a distrust of schools as inefficient, repressive institutions. It's part of my new "damn the man" persona!

November 4, 2005
Utahraptor: I bet you're just trying to play "hard to get". And, actually, by announcing that nobody can kiss you, you imply that they'd probably want to kiss you under normal circumstances. You're just spinning your cold, using it as good PR!

November 4, 2005
T-Rex: But, I'm ALSO creating a shortage of T-Rex kisses to increase demand. Would you say you irrationally want some of my kissing now?
Utahraptor: Nope!
T-Rex: Try harder!
Tooltip: you're doing it wrong!

November 12, 2005
T-Rex: Holy crap! There's a bomb in the comic. If I stop stomping the comic will explode! I must stomp unceasingly or we are all surely doomed!
Dromiceiomimus: Isn't that all you ever do anyway?
T-Rex: I must heroically continue to save us all!

November 17, 2005
T-Rex: Ooh! OR, I could surround myself with attractive and sexually-available women and then try not to have the intercourse with them!
Utahraptor: That seems more like an excuse for group sex than actual science.
T-Rex: EXPERIMENT: APPROVED??
Tooltip: grant request: DENIED?!

November 18, 2005
T-Rex: I'm at an impasse! I don't want to kill him, but I figure if I use a humane trap to release him somewhere else, I'm just shifting the problem to the new dude whose kitchen he moves into.

November 21, 2005
T-Rex: RPGs sound like nerd games that nerds play! With - with nerds!

November 21, 2005
Devil: I INVITE YOU ALL TO PLAY RPGS WITH ME TONIGHT T-REX
T-Rex: I'm not going to Hell just to play RPGS!
Devil: I PROMISE ONLY FLAVOURED CHIPS AND HIGH ADVENTURE

November 22, 2005
T-Rex: What? No, I wouldn't think of doing that. I'm not trying to set up a Walt Disney-esque scheme for tax sheltered reanimation here!

November 22, 2005
T-Rex: These events only serve to further undermine my credibility! Man! Friggin' events!

November 22, 2005
Tooltip: you may quite reasonably inquire as to how, exactly, one might set up a charitable organization by accident. the answer, is, of course, "by accident"

November 23, 2005
T-Rex: Utahraptor's started his own charity dedicated towards reanimating his body when he dies. What a copycat! It's MY idea, even if I did do it just by accident. Now it's like a bizarre arms race, seeing who can reanimate their dead body first. It's dumb. And yet, I'm totally going to win!

November 23, 2005
T-Rex: Because that's what my charity was looking into: reanimating long-dead corpses! We was gonna make zombies. We - we was being straight out socially irresponsible.

November 23, 2005
Subject: this comic applies to my own life in several important ways

November 24, 2005
T-Rex: Pranks are supposed to end in laughter all around?
Utahraptor: The best ones do!
T-Rex: Huh! Mine have all ended with me getting punches to the gut. A few ended in broken marriages! What is this emotion called 'regret'?
Tooltip: and why is it suddenly so FAMILIAR?

November 28, 2005
T-Rex: Everyone loves orange juice! Well, except for people who have cuts on their lips, but they've made their choice.

November 29, 2005
Utahraptor: We've built a whole system around ethics, and you're questioning its foundation!
T-Rex: That's right, baby!

T-Rex: A better understanding of ethics? Plus the ability to not feel bad for accidentally "murdering" your friends who shoot down your ideas. I MEAN...OOPS

November 30, 2005
T-Rex: I am so serious about this. I would have a fireman's pole. The waterslide - the waterslide I can see dying on the drawing board. But a big brassy fireman's pole is a very Freudian way to say "Ladies, I'm the dude with the giant fireman's pole in his house".

November 30, 2005
T-Rex: How could I, when there'd be a trampoline at the bottom to ensure soft landings, AND stairs at the side for the elderly and the sissy-panted?

November 30, 2005
T-Rex: I will call my house, "The House Where It's Very Hard To Get Any Work Done".

December 2005Edit

December 1, 2005
T-Rex: Just curious! I've never done any, but some of my friends have. They say - they say it's pretty alright? Then they rub their faces on the carpet.

December 1, 2005
Subject: i am maybe a little interested just in rubbing my face on the carpet

December 2, 2005
Morris: oh t-rex it really was a challenge for me today. but, you can - my name is morris, if you wanted to call me that. morris the bug.

December 5, 2005
T-Rex: You can go in to a doctor and he takes a blood test, and then his machine spits out a piece of paper that says "exploded" or "drowned" or "poisoned apple" and that's it. No dates, no details! And so people who are to die from drowning spend the rest of their lives avoiding swimming pools, but they end up drowning anyway. Part of the fun would be seeing how!

December 5, 2005
T-Rex: This machine delights in ironically vague deaths.

December 5, 2005
T-Rex: It would also work on animals, but all the ones for cows would say "made into delicious cheeseburger". Not that the cows could understand! Friggin' cheeseburgers!

December 6, 2005
T-Rex: I think it would be great to have my last words planned out in advance. They'd have to be really memorable, so that people would keep talking about them, and by extension me! Unfortunately, all the good ones are taken. Sucks to THAT!

December 7, 2005
T-Rex: Also: learning is not a competition?
Tooltip: IT IS TODAY

December 8, 2005
T-Rex: And YES, I understand that of all the things in the world to get worked up about, maybe poverty and climate change are above one soul-crushing shopping experience downtown. But man! The mall!

December 8, 2005
T-Rex: Everyone! Support the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol! ALSO SCREW THE MALL IN ITS STUPID FACE OKAY
Tooltip: PERSONIFY THE MALL AND JUST DO THIS ONE THING FOR ME OKAY

December 8, 2005
Subject: i bought a burger and it had no toppings. no toppings.

December 12, 2005
Tooltip: how many times will you hear the phrase 'fetishistic cultural interest' today? well, that really depends on which circles you run in, i'd imagine.

December 14, 2005
Racoons and Cephalopods: ONE TIME, T-REX, WE ALL GOT SO HIGH WE STARTED CANNIBALIZING EACH OTHER HA HA HA WHAT ARE THE ODDS
Tooltip: what you don't see in the next panel is where the raccoons and cephalopods all stop laughing at the same time, cock their heads slightly, and turn to stare at t-rex

December 15, 2005
T-Rex: Well, I guess the difference is that nobody will ever get mad at you for being intolerant of racism! Except for racists. But it's okay, because everyone hates racists, right? E-except for racists.
Tooltip: FRIGGIN' RACISTS MESSING UP MY GENERALIZATIONS, ALSO STEALING MY JOBS, WOMEN
Subject: epilogue: for the rest of t-rex's life, this problem never actually comes up?

December 19, 2005
T-Rex: Dromiceiomimus! You owe me ten sub sandwiches, and I'm calling in the debt.
Dromiceiomimus: I don't owe you ten sub sandwiches! Why the heck would I ever owe you ten sub sandwiches?
T-Rex: ONE TIME, and I remember this quite clearly, you bet me ten sub sandwiches over something and it was basically pretty clear that you lost.

December 19, 2005
T-Rex: God, you owe me several sub-themed items too!
God: HOLY SHIT WHY DOES EVERYONE KEEP SAYING THAT

December 19, 2005
Tooltip: t-rex has gotten the idea that what debt collection agencies do is "try to get people to buy them a big ol' lunch", which, when you think about it, isn't actually what they do at all. let's be serious about this, t-rex. come on.
Subject: I'M more of a one-man 'chatting people up at the debt collection agency' agency

December 20, 2005
T-Rex: Holy smokes, but that's a pretty awesome expression! 'That dude just fell down the stairs! Holy smokes!' It has the charm of a child, yet is better than the old standby of 'holy cow' because nobody says 'holy smokes' anymore. It is forgotten. It is UNDISCOVERED.

December 20, 2005
Tooltip: the alternate ending has t-rex in panel 5 asking utahraptor to tell him something exciting so he can use the expression, and utahraptor says he was at a party last night where some people where doing cocaine in the corner, and t-rex really doesn't know what to say to that. he imagines he would feel uncomfortable in such a situation, but would try to pretend like he was cool with it, like he didn't even care.

December 21, 2005
T-Rex: Oh man, robots. So awesome! What other literary construct allows us to discuss the disparate issues of slavery, prejudice, identity, the body AND the self, while also allowing for all the trappings of a science fiction setting? Only robots, my friends! I would seriously marry robots if it were even possible.

December 21, 2005
Tooltip: the only way to defeat these robot clones will be to trap them in a logical contradiction, which, as robots, they are supremely under-equipped to handle. it's like what happens if you ask a regular person to assemble a car out of its constituent parts. they just fall to the ground, twitching! we're really from two different worlds, i think.
Subject: ATTENTION ROBOTS THAT BUILD CARS: what the hell

December 23, 2005
T-Rex: Oh man, I haven't bought anyone any presents yet! I AM SO POOCHED! I am the worst friend in the world. This will consummate my social ruin FOR SURE!

December 23, 2005
Subject: so wait wait is everyone a sinister robot clone in this comic or what

December 26, 2005
T-Rex: I have made a very important New Year's Resolution! It's to make sure that my name becomes an EPONYMOUS ADJECTIVE. People will soon all describe things as 'T-Rexian'! What sort of things? Awesome things, natch!

December 26, 2005
T-Rex: Had I finally and irrevocably 'blown it' with my own name? Had my father's famed and final prediction come, at last, to pass? Daaaaaang!
Tooltip: t-rex's father is an enigma dipped in a few crazysauce predictions

December 26, 2005
Subject: i was gonna complain about it not being new year's day in real life when it's new year's day in the comic, but then i was like, dude those dinosaurs are TALKING

December 28, 2005
T-Rex: Here is a hypothetical situation: let's say I'm married and going to have a child (with my assuredly hott wife)! What should it be named? MY position is that babies should be named after old girlfriends! Not only does it allow excellent names to be redistributed to new children, but as we have more kids we'll catch up, and eventually one will be named after my wife! It evens out! Everybody wins!

December 28, 2005
Utahraptor: How excellent are we talking about? I bet they were named "Cheeseball" and "Chuggy G".
T-Rex: Those are terrible names! Those are names you give to cats that you don't like.

December 28, 2005
Subject: YOU DON'T HAVE TO GET MARRIED TO HAVE KIDS RYAN WHY ARE YOU STILL SUPPORTING THE HETERO-NORMATIVE OWNERSHIP PARADIGM

December 29, 2005
T-Rex: Okay okay SO - am I making the best use of my time? Judging by the success of others the answer may well be, in fact, 'PERHAPS NOT'.

December 29, 2005
T-Rex: UTAHRAPTOR: A GUY WHO IS NOT HELPING RIGHT NOW FRIGGIN' GARDENS OF REGRET!!
Tooltip: guys i am seriously so sick of gardens of regret right now
Subject: ryan: a guy who is doing comics right now when he probably should be having a shower and putting on pants?

December 30, 2005
T-Rex: Well! I for one would like to register disappointment with every aspect of the future?
Tooltip: i for one would like to register disappointment with every aspect of these discount oven fries?

December 30, 2005
Subject: clearly t-rex told utahraptor about the wish to see the future in timeline a, which was distorted into timeline b by the introduction of the vision of tomorrow in panel 4, oh yes.

2006Edit

January 2006Edit

January 3, 2006
T-Rex: To begin: my stomping on this manner is a sorted little affair! Take soulless in the fact that at leased ewe are knot being chaste as well!
Dromiceiomimus: Why don't you chews to do something else? That would be goo gnus to me!
T-Rex: I will here nun of it!

January 3, 2006
Tooltip: IN TWO THOUSAND AND SIX, PEOPLE WILL JUST TELL EACH OTHER WHEN JOKES ARE AWESOME
Subject: in 2006, 'punchlines' are replaced with 'needless narrative closure'

January 4, 2006
T-Rex: That's it - I'll sell naked pictures of myself online! For PROFITS!

January 4, 2006
T-Rex: SCIENCE CORNER: Do anti-dollars really mutually annihilate when combined with regular dollars? Science says, 'yes!'
Tooltip: EINSTEIN PREDICTED THE EXISTENCE OF ANTI-DOLLARS IN A LITTLE-KNOWN PAPER IN 1945! IT WAS OVERSHADOWED BY ATOMIC BOMB FEVER
Subject: how can you have a science corner without professor science ryan, THE ANSWER IS YOU CAN'T

January 5, 2006
Utahraptor: But 'begging the question' is mostly used today to mean 'raising the question'!
T-Rex: I know! IT'S SO WRONG.
Utahraptor: Well, I suppose that begs the question, T-Rex: if it's used more often to mean 'raises the question' than 'a fallacy of presumption', doesn't that suggest that the definition of the phrase has evolved?
T-Rex: NO IT DOES NOT. What it suggests is that everybody sucks but me!

January 6, 2006
T-Rex: Oh goodness, I am so thirsty. My thirst is - exquisite. Sublime. Immaculate.
God: GET A DRINK T-REX
T-Rex: Nopers! I would much rather consider the precise nature of my thirst. It's - strong! Insistent.

January 6, 2006
Narration: LATER, PERFORMING AID AND SANITATION WORK IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA:
T-Rex: Man! EVERYONE has better reasons for being here than me!
Tooltip: everyone else is all 'oh i felt like i could really make a difference here' and t-rex is all 'well, uh, i wanted to show up my friend? he's a utahraptor'
Subject: RYAN ARE YOU BEING PREACHY OR ARE YOU JUST STRAIGHT UP MAKING JOKES ABOUT WATER

January 10, 2006
T-Rex: I've never had any problems with dating someone of a different religion, but I imagine under certain circumstances it could be a problem! Much like... most things?

January 10, 2006
T-Rex: Luckily, as I say, this has never happened to me. Therefore, double high fives for conflict avoided??
Utah raptor: I'm not giving you double high fives, T-Rex.
T-Rex: Man!! Don't leave me hangin'!
Tooltip: later: CLEARLY reluctant double high fives

January 10, 2006
Subject: t-rex probably says 'most religions' in panel 3 in case there ARE some religions that are all about just going through the motions; religions which he is, as yet, unaware of.

January 11, 2006
God: HEY T-REX SETTLE A BET WHAT ONE CHANGE WOULD YOU MAKE TO YOURSELF IF YOU COULD
T-Rex: Raising one eyebrow!

January 11, 2006
God: OKAY WELL IT LOOKS LIKE I LOST BECAUSE I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO ASK TO BE PURPLE
T-Rex: Why?! Purple doesn't rhyme with 'machine'.
God: YEAH ANYWAY NOW I'M DOWN A TRILLION LIFETIMES OF FRIED CHICKEN THANKS T-REX YOU AND YOUR FRIGGIN EYEBROWS
Tooltip: the implication is that 'green' does rhyme with 'machine' and that t-rex calls himself the 'green machine' OKAY
Subject: in heaven the standard bet IS a trillion times the amount of fried chicken an average dude would eat in his lifetime

January 12, 2006
T-Rex: What is the deal with everyone walking in on me while I'm having showers? This has gone well beyond random chance and I am at a loss to explain it. Everyone needs to stop walking in on me while I'm having a shower, please!

January 12, 2006
Tooltip: everyone needs to stop walking in on me while i'm naked and rubbing soap all over my wet body >:|

January 13, 2006
T-Rex: Is it possible to have adventures in today's modern world? I mean real adventures, like ones where I get to swashbuckle. T-Rex says, 'probably not!'

January 16, 2006
Utahraptor: I wish for more wishes!
T-Rex: Oh man, ouch! Shot down! Looks like no wishes for you!
Utahraptor: This sucks!
T-Rex: Should've wished for ice cream, my friend!
Tooltip: really, it's unfair that utahraptor's plan didn't work, because more wishes is a very reasonable thing to ask for. a lot of problems could be solved with more wishes.
Subject: i wish for less people stealing my friggin' fries at lunch

January 17, 2006
T-Rex: Oh, it's true! If it was even MARGINALLY in style, I would grow mutton chops.

January 18, 2006
T-Rex: Dating both twin sisters at the same time: Hot? Or just,in fact, KIND OF WEIRD? I'm afraid that I fall on the 'kind of weird' side of the fence this time. While I'm usually strongly in favour of the hot makeouts, they're sisters! It's like they've made out with each other, through proxy. Transitive makeouts!

January 19, 2006
Dromiceiomimus: Nightmares aren't really that great, T-Rex. Bad things happen to people you like.
T-Rex: Oh, I know! I know. I just feel a little left out when everyone gets to have nightmares but me! I feel... I feel like the only girl in grade 8 who hasn't hit puberty yet.

January 19, 2006
Utahraptor: That strikes me as an odd analogy, T-Rex!
T-Rex: Does it?
Utahraptor: Yeah. I don't - I don't understand what you're going for with it. Why are you a girl? And why would you compare puberty to a nightmare in the first place? You've had some success with it.
T-Rex: Hah! I SURE have.

January 19, 2006
Narration: EARLY SUCCESSES IN PUBERTY:
T-Rex: Hey, I have unfocused, confusing sexual desires! Alright!
Tooltip: if you are a dude who thinks puberty actually is a nightmare, then sorry for reminding you :(

January 23, 2006
T-Rex: It sucks, because if everyone disagrees with you, then you'll never get anything you want. It's majority rule! MOB rule!
Dromiceiomimus: Well, majority rule is sort of the definition of democracy, T-Rex. Not everyone can get everything they want!
T-Rex: Yeah, but what if the majority decided to be totally racist against you? You're pooched!

January 23, 2006
T-Rex: Right! Like how I'm in a minority because I sometimes like to sleep in on weekends.
Utahraptor: Actually, I'd say most people like to do that, T-Rex.
T-Rex: Really? Are you serious?? Have all my years of sleepy shame been for naught?
Tooltip: blinking in the afternoon sunlight, already fabricating the first lies of morning productivity
Subject: from democracy to sleepin' in in six easy panels

January 24, 2006
Utahraptor: My favourite are the freegans!
T-Rex: Where you be vegetarian for free?
Utahraptor: Close! It's where you don't eat meat unless you're given it for free, like from a dumpster. You prevent meat from going to waste, but you don't support its production.
T-Rex: That sounds close to flexitarians, who only eat meat when being vegetarian would be rude or inconvenient!

January 24, 2006
T-Rex: I myself am a tremendo-meatatarian, which means that I only eat meat which I find to be tremendously delicious!
Utahraptor: I've seen you eat fruits and vegetables!
T-Rex: Yes. On account of the golly gosh-darned scurvy.
Tooltip: mom, dad, i've got the golly gosh-darned scurvy.
Subject: there's some resentment there towards a lack of vitamin c and bleeding from the mucous membranes

January 25, 2006
T-Rex: I am a dude in need of a catchy slogan. Something to put under my name on business cards to convince people they should associate with me and maybe be my friend! Something like, 'T-Rex: Your Man In ANY Situation!'

January 25, 2006
Utahraptor: 'T-Rex: Not A Pedophile (Just So You Know)'?
T-Rex: Man, that's not positive either!
Utahraptor: How about 'T-Rex: Your Shortcomings and Regrets, Personified!'
T-Rex: That's even less positive than the first one!!
Utahraptor: 'T-Rex: That Awful Taste in your Mouth, First Thing in the Morning'
T-Rex: No! I'd be a tasty taste in the morning!
Subject: sex in the city: like waking up each morning to a mouth flooded with ryoma!

January 25, 2006

LATER:

Utahraptor: "T-Rex: Like Waking Up Covered in Someone Else's Blood, But In A Good Way"
T-Rex: I HAVE LONG SINCE STOPPED SOLICITING SUGGESTIONS, UTAHRAPTOR. Not bad, though!

January 25, 2006
Tooltip: My old home town of Ottawa spent $200,000 on a new slogan for the city, and the best they could come up with was 'Technically beautiful'. It was very embarrassing to us all. I think the guy who suggested the slogan got a new bike, if memory serves.

January 26, 2006
Utahraptor: T-Rex, enough! Is this story supposed to have a case of the sucks?
T-Rex': No! Of course not!

January 26, 2006
T-Rex: LATER: Oh right, Utahraptor's having trouble with this dude he's been seeing! I forgive his critical outburst. 'TROUBLE AT HOME??'
Tooltip: t-rex you're kind of ripping off your own haiku there but WHATever man
Subject: i've got a terminal case of the rockin' outs AND the rockin' oats :(

January 27, 2006
T-Rex: I have discovered that I have a weakness. Me! And though I should probably keep it a secret from my enemies, I will say what it is. Smell associations!

January 27, 2006
Narration: FUN FACT: THAT'S NOT HOW SMELL ASSOCIATION WORKS AT ALL!
T-Rex: You don' know me!
Tooltip: based on a true story (yesterday i was mind controlled by a smelly enemy)
Subject: actually it's a little how smell association works, except for the cartoon pupils part. that's only how smell association works in cartoons.

January 30, 2006
T-Rex: I plan on developing SEVERAL crazy theories about the postal service.
Tooltip: to clarify, t-rex plans to theorize that the people responsible for the postal service built their system such that it would take financial advantage of information-theoretic properties of lossy networks :0
Subject: dromiceiomimus considered getting involved in this conversation but then she was like hmm, NOPE

January 31, 2006
Devil: IF YOU ARE DISINTERESTED IN HEARING MY TREATISE ON COMPUTER CONTROLLED STORYTELLING I WILL FIND A MORE RECEPTIVE AUDIENCE
T-Rex: Please do!!
Devil: BUT I CAUTION YOU I WAS QUITE CLOSE TO REVEALING RARE AND POWERFUL CHEAT CODES
Tooltip: for instance, in a book if the main character dies you can't go back and re-read the last few pages over and over again for like two hours trying to get him to survive, before finally throwing the book away in disgust because that last page is friggin impossible
Subject: oh no the devil has a code for god mode!!!

February 2006Edit

February 1, 2006
T-Rex: Hey, Dromiceiomimus! I have a friendship crush on you!
Dromiceiomimus: Well, thank you T-Rex. You're not so bad yourself.
T-Rex: A friendship crush is where you really like a friend, but it's not necessarily sexual, but everyone makes jokes that it's totally sexual, because you like to hang out all the time.

February 2, 2006
Utahraptor: I've just never heard reincarnation including things that, you know - aren't alive.
T-Rex: Some people believe that you can come back as plants! They're BARELY alive.
Utahraptor: They support the entire food chain!
T-Rex: BARELY. So barely! I've seriously never been impressed with a plant.
Utahraptor: Even sunflowers? They tilt to follow the sun!
T-Rex: Don't get me started about sunflowers! God! Their salty, boring seeds!
Tooltip: t-rex is not telling the truth. in 1998, he was quite impressed with a flower that bloomed only once a year, and that smelled septic while doing so.
Comment: t-rex approaches plants the way he might approach a new video game console, and finds them lacking in replay value

February 3, 2006
T-Rex: And I am not a dude who's gonna say that naturally weaponized flowers aren't cool.

February 3, 2006
God: HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE STRAWBERRIES T-REX
T-Rex: I don't know. A lot? They're alright. To - to fully understand my love of strawberries is to fully understand the unblinking eye of madness?
Tooltip: t-rex isn't - he isn't really sure what god wants him to say.

February 3, 2006
Comment: ryan, i'm a plant and i read your comic yesterday and i got plant-offended

February 6, 2006
Utahraptor: Aw man, are you infecting us right now?? Go back to bed!
T-Rex: No, but -But I thought we - we could get through this disease... together?
Utahraptor: Hah! Nuh uh! You thought you were bored resting in bed, so you'd come out here and entertain yourself by talking to us! Meanwhile WE'RE getting disease all up in our trouser shorts.

February 6, 2006
T-Rex: What is this emotion called 'criminal negligence'?
Tooltip: and why is it suddenly so ILLEGAL?

February 7, 2006
T-Rex: Dromiceiomimus, pretend that we're dating and talking on the phone, and I'll break up with you, okay?
Dromiceiomimus: Yeah, actually that's something I'm not very clear on. Are we dating?
T-Rex: Dromiceiomimus! There's no time for talking about FEELINGS now. We're doing an experiment! Man, nevermind!
Tooltip: haha yeah there's definitely a stereotypical male fantasy in panel three. women! there's no time for talking about feelings now! we're doing SCIENCE!

February 10, 2006
Utahraptor: You can't deal with the "issue" of socialism by just summing it up in a few sentences!
T-Rex: True! But I can sum it up in a play involving everyone wanting some of my delicious ice cream cone!
Utahraptor: What?
T-Rex: And then we all decide to pitch in and take over the ice cream cone factory?
Tooltip: i'm pretty sure that's how it works?
Subject: ALTERNATE PUNCHLINE: everyone spends hours arguing over socialism AND communism AND the definitions of both those terms, and it's boring and stupid!

February 14, 2006
Tooltip: is there a message in my doing a comic about 'singularity' on valentine's day? that seems like a bit of a stretch! you are probably overthinking things.

February 20, 2006
T-Rex: MAN! EVERYONE is making it really hard for me to solve the eternal problem of unhappiness!

BUT THEN, INSPIRATION! A PERFECT SOLUTION FOR ENDLESS JOY!

T-Rex: W-... Wildly misinterpret your own despair?

February 20, 2006
Tooltip: t-rex got a positive mention of his 'problem solving skills' on grade three report card, and NEVER FORGOT

February 21, 2006
Subject: a tip of the hat to all our brave men and women who have swallowed a lot of orange juice for no reason

February 24, 2006
T-Rex: I kind of wish my name was a verb too, though, instead of just being a noun. You can't T-Rex something. I've tried. It doesn't work.

February 27, 2006
T-Rex: We need to do some Olympic-class screw ups and feel REALLY bad about them if we're ever going to win.
Utahraptor: I know, I know! But it seems she's got a regret for every occasion. How can we compete with that?

LATER, PROFANELY SPYING ON DROMICEIOMIMUS:

T-Rex: She's just sadly staying at home, Utahraptor! Man! She's probably regretting things RIGHT NOW! Fuck me!

February 28, 2006
T-Rex: And it's why I never call a woman OR a joke "hysterical". I don't want to be accussed of tacitly endorsing historically institutionalized sexism!

February 28, 2006
T-REX DECIDES TO EXCISE THE "HYSTERA" ROOT ENTIRELY FROM HIS VOCABULARY, JUST TO BE SAFE:
T-Rex: So I hear you're having a minuswomb operation?
Off-Frame: Excuse me? I'm having a hysterectomy.
T-Rex: Yes! A "uter-b-gone". - A womboval?

February 28, 2006
Tooltip: i am popular at the parties of strangers

March 2006Edit

March 3, 2006
T-Rex: And why is everyone acting like I can suddenly control time just because I gave myself a sweet superhero name? It's surreal.

March 3, 2006
Tooltip: that's right marvel and dc! i hear your joint trademark on the word 'superhero' and i call SHENANIGANS.

March 8, 2006
Utahraptor: Whoah, not everyone needs to fall in love!
T-Rex: You are diluting our message here, UTAHRAPTOR.
Utahraptor: I'm serious! People get so hung up on finding "the one" that they forget everything else. You can have an entirely rewarding life without being so "madly in love" with someone! Close friendships and a private room can offer most of the things love does.
T-Rex: A private room? Oh man, were you just namedropping M.C. MASTURBATION?
Utahraptor: You can stop calling it that anytime, T-Rex.

March 8, 2006
Subject: it's like saying 'aunt flo' is visiting, only instead you hollah that mc masturbation is in the HOUSE

March 17, 2006
T-Rex: For instance, did you know that whenever women are alone they have pillow fights, and then they practise kissing on each other? I've seen the pictures! - I mean - I mean my friend has seen the pictures. - IT'S A PROJECT FOR SCHOOL.

March 27, 2006
LATER: A MOMENT OF REFLECTION.
T-Rex: Buying this magazine made me feel dirty and ashamed! Have I once again thoughtlessly aided the exploitation of our nation's topless lesbian teens?
Tooltip: arguably, our nation's finest natural resource?

March 28, 2006
Subject: i am britishfolk and 'nappy' means 'diaper' to me, so this comic is very confusing and maybe a little perverted.

March 29, 2006
T-Rex: Dear audio diary: today I may have accidentally registered myself as a sex offender! WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY LIFE

April 2006Edit

April 17, 2006
Dromiceiomimus: So they're shaped like naughty bits?
T-Rex: No, those are sex rolls. Gender rolls are shaped like housewives and firemen!

April 17, 2006
T-Rex: They're animal crackers for the new generation. Come on! It's a great pun, PLUS, every time you go into my bakery you can choose your own preferred gender roll! It's brilliant!
Utahraptor: Do people HAVE to choose a gender roll?
T-Rex: They do if they want to use the washrooms, dammit.

April 26, 2006
T-Rex: ACCIDENT ONE: slapped someone right in the face! Kapow!
Dromiceiomimus: How was that an accident?
T-Rex: I didn't see them there, that's all!
Dromiceiomimus: And - what? You were just slapping the space around you to pass the time?
T-Rex: WHO CAN SAY? All we really know for sure is that it was DEFINITELY an accident.

May 2006Edit

May 1, 2006
Utahraptor: You're always all, "Feelings are boring. Kissing is awesome!" You should make yourself a shirt that says that and wear it all the time.

May 1, 2006
Subject: that's right, 'memorable lovemaking techniqueS'. it's plural now.

May 2, 2006
Utahraptor: I bet you like all your social commentary to incorporate endless hunger for the flesh of the living!
T-Rex: Yep!

May 3, 2006
Tooltip: if you think t-rex's reaction to the pet duck is a little extreme, that's because you don't yet know that it's wearing an adorable little duck-sized sailor's uniform, complete with jaunty blue chapeau.

May 4, 2006
Tooltip: i have this argument with my friends where i tell them i believe 'totally make out' means having sex, and they're all, no ryan, it just means making out to the EXTREME, and i say, what's more EXTREME than having sex, and anyway, cool story huh

May 15, 2006
Dromiceiomimus: I think you might be doing something wrong if your kisses remind people of amniotic fluid, T-Rex!
T-Rex: Perhaps! But that is a topic for ANOTHER TIME.

May 18, 2006
Subject: is utahraptor's favourite song really 'all the things she said' by tatu? it is an easy guess to make because secretly that is everyone's favourite song.

May 24, 2006
Tooltip: t-rex is not sure where he stands on the conflict in the middle east, but he is FOR mothers with baby carriages being extreme. you might wish to adopt these politics as your own.

May 25, 2006

MEANWHILE, IN DREAMLAND!

T-Rex: Professor, there must be SOMETHING I can do to convince you to take this assignment...
Off-Frame: This dream has taken a turn for the sexy!

May 29, 2006
Tooltip: there is an embedded midi file of the ghostbusters theme song on endless loop. ARGUABLY, such a feature should be included on every website.

May 30, 2006
Utahraptor: So basically you're just asking people what they liked and what they didn't like?
T-Rex: Yeah! But "regret index" makes it sound more scientific. I honestly think this could be useful! You could find out how many people are still happy that they memorized every Star Trek episode!
Utahraptor: I know I am.
T-Rex: I, too, remain fully satisfied.

June 2006Edit

June 5, 2006
LATER, T-REX IS TRYING TO DISCOVER ESSENTIAL TRUTHS AND IT'S SO HARD::
T-Rex: Man, forget this! I take back some of the things I said about civilzation!
Tooltip: this one goes out to all the brothers who have taken back some of the things they've said about civilization

June 6, 2006
T-Rex: Maybe it's universally true that everyone likes... to party?
Cephalopods: WE DON'T LIKE TO PARTY T-REX
T-Rex: Good God! What are you cephalopods doing in my bedroom??
Cephalopods: CHILLAXING

June 13 2006
Subject: i would also have accepted 't-rex has an ape / let's see what happens'

June 29 2006
Utahraptor: The emotions we have in English are just labels we've applied to a short SPECTRUM of feeling. You can almost always divide existing emotions into smaller, more precise chunks! For example, your well-known satisfaction at eating cereal in the morning is an exact, identifiable, reproducable joy that I can only label "breakfast pleasure".
T-Rex: Breakfast pleasure! Finally, I have words for that most sublime of satisfactions!! BREAKFAST PLEASURE. I love breakfast pleasure.
Utahraptor: I know, T-Rex.
T-Rex: I'm not entirely certain that you do!
Tooltip: dude loves his breakfast, you don't even know

July 2006Edit

July 5, 2006
T-Rex: Aww! That is me! I talk as if nobody's listening, I dance as if nobody's watching, and I eat as if nobody's hungry.
Utahraptor: That last one is a BIT less attractive.
T-Rex: I also vacuum as if nobody's going to get their carpets any cleaner.
T-Rex: Daaaamn!

July 19, 2006
T-Rex: Oh, I've got other awful ideas too! Like, a toy gun for children, but every one in twenty shots (on average) it actually fires a real bullet!
T-Rex: That's a horrific idea!
T-Rex: What is wrong with me?

July 25, 2006
T-Rex: ONE TIME I snuck onto a friend's computer while at his house and altered an essay he was writing for school about EVIL. All I did for instant hilarity was replace every instance of the word "evil" with the phrase "Irish evil"!
T-Rex: Can good exist without Irish evil? SOME PHILOSOPHERS SUSPECT IT CANNOT!

July 26, 2006
WHEN TO USE "COWABUNGA": ONLY IF YOU ARE A NINJA TURTLE
T-Rex: So Kant's Categorical Imperative is more of a meta-directive, right?
Utahraptor: In the first formulation, yeah.
T-REX AND UTAHRAPTOR ARE DINOSAURS SO THAT'S THE ONLY REASON WHY THEY'RE NOT USING IT.

July 26, 2006
WHEN TO USE "I LOVE YOU": ONLY WHEN YOU WANT TO TELL SOMEONE YOU LOVE THEM
T-Rex: I love you!
T-REX ACTUALLY JUST WANTED TO SAY HERE THAT HE WAS THIRSTY, SO HE HAS USED THE PHRASE IMPROPERLY. THIS CAN LEAD TO COMPLICATIONS!

August 2006Edit

August 1, 2006
T-Rex: I don't know- littering's this perfectly situated thing where it's not THAT big a deal taken individually, but a really antisocial thing when taken on a larger scale.
Utahraptor: And yet, not really, when you compare it to, say, murderin' dudes.

August 8, 2006
T-Rex: Hey everyone! Stop saying "bitches" so much!
T-Rex: There are other words than "bitches"! Daaamn!
T-Rex: These words include such fine examples as "fellows", "gravy", and "Monterey Jack".
Dromiceiomimus: Are we to use those words in place of "bitches"?
T-Rex: Exclusively! FOR EXAMPLE, instead of saying "Hey! Get off my back, bitches!" I can NOW say "Hey! Get off my back, Monterey Jack!"
Utahraptor: That one only works because it rhymes!!
T-Rex: Says you, gravy!
Utahraptor: See? See? That one only makes you sound like you're dumb and want gravy.
T-Rex: I do want gravy.
Utahraptor: Alright.
Utahraptor: I don't have any.

August 15, 2006
T-Rex: I know I don't want to give up on getting excited about cool ads! Art can be created in a commercial context, and I don't want to reject something because of its origins. BUT I don't want to be Captain Suggestible either!
Utahraptor: Nobody wants to be Captain Suggestible!
Captain Suggestible: Guys! I'm right here!
T-Rex: I'm sorry Cap'n! You forgive me so hard.
Captain Suggestible: I forgive you! I forgive you so hard!!

August 17, 2006
T-Rex: God, give me fifty dollars!
God: DUDE, THAT'S LIKE THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF HOW RELIGION WORKS

August 30, 2006
T-Rex: That's all I got. I've realized that doing things is like admitting to people that you experience the events that cause you to do these things. It's not a very good revelation.
Utahraptor: Well- you tried! You don't have to be a walking revelation factory.
LATER!
God: T-REX I'M GOD AND I SAY YOU HAVE TO BE A WALKING REVELATION FACTORY
T-Rex: Utahraptor says I don't!
God: AWWWWW SHOOT

September 2006Edit

September 1, 2006
Utahraptor: Well, you could always have kids by donating sperm!
T-Rex: That is technically true!
T-Rex: However, would I even know if that results in kids? Do they tell the donor that? Honestly, all I know about sperm banks comes from teen gross-out comedies.
Utahraptor: So you suspect-
T-Rex: Yes. I suspect that, without fail, somebody always accidentally consumes the semen.

September 6, 2006
T-Rex: Here is a terrible idea for a date: you take the lady to a stinky old sewage processing planet and then tour the facilities! You could be all, "Sorry, potential lifemate!! I'm a dude who makes bad date decisions."

September 8, 2006
Cashier: Excuse me, sir!! This bill you gave me is counterfeit!
T-Rex: Aw snapadoodle!

September 8, 2006
T-Rex: Man! You know where I got the fake money? Change from a friggin' fast food restaurant.
T-Rex: I blame the Colonel Sanders!
God: COLONEL SANDERS HAS BEEN ADDED TO YOUR REVENGE LIST
T-Rex: Well good!

September 11, 2006
T-Rex: Controversy Monday is when you needlessly volunteer made up opinions on abortion!
God: YEAH I KNOW BUT DUDE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT VIDEOGAMES HERE AND I SAW ON TV THAT EVERY TEEN KILLER PLAYS DOOM EVEN THOUGH IT'S LIKE 15 YEARS OLD
T-Rex: Can we accept that there will always be some unstable people who will go off with any stimulus, and that others can't be held responsible?
God: UM NOT ON CONTROVERSY MONDAY

September 11, 2006
Utahraptor: Okay, but the fact is that if a given stimulus (game, book, movie, whatever) WASN'T there, then they wouldn't have gone all crazy at the same time, place, or even at all!
T-Rex: TRUE, but that's ridiculous. That's like saying if your parents had conceived differently you wouldn't have been born...
T-Rex: ...thereby making THEM responsible for the fact that you came over last night and ate all my damn pastries!
Utahraptor: I was just preparing for Controversy Monday!
T-Rex: YOU WERE JUST PREPARING FOR YOUR BELLY SWELLING WITH MY SO DELICIOUS PASTRIES

September 19, 2006
T-Rex: There! My costume looks like a failed corpse that still makes a blasphemous claim to life. Thanks, Uncanny Valley!
Uncanny Valley: No problem, T-Rex!
T-Rex: It's so upsetting that you got personified, Uncanny Valley.
Tooltip: t-rex isn't trying to be rude, it's just - it's so upsetting that the uncanny valley got personified.

September 21, 2006
Devil: MMM T-REX I'VE NOT YET EXPERIENCED A NON-VIRTUAL ROAD TRIP AND WAS WONDERING IF YOU CAN TELL ME WHAT THEY ARE LIKE
T-Rex: In one sentence starting with "Dude"?
Devil: FINE
T-Rex: Dude, road trips rule!

September 21, 2006
T-Rex: I vote we trip to: Brazil!
Utahraptor: That's pretty far. How about someplace closer?
T-Rex: THE ISLAND CONTINENT OF AUSTRALIA??
Utahraptor: We'd need a car that works on water for that.
T-Rex: Okay! But Utahraptor, what's that across the street? A car that works on water??
Jacques Esqueleto: aw come on you guys it's mine
T-Rex: Jacques Esqueleto!! I thought I made you up!

September 27, 2006
T-Rex: I don't understand how people could have seriously thought that the world was flat. Did they have a case of the crazies?
T-Rex: DID THEY??
T-Rex: Because if you accept the world is a finite plane, then it's got limits, and what's at the edge of those limits? A vertical wall that goes down a few kilometres, and then what? Tree roots? Upside-down land? A place where owls rule the world like they don't even care?

September 28, 2006
Utahraptor: I don't get why you're casting this in terms of a gender battle, but yeah- I'm with beards over babies too!
T-Rex: The way you say it- is there actually an organization called Beards over Babies?
Utahraptor: Not to my knowledge!
T-Rex: Dude, we have to start it!
T-Rex: Our logo can be a big ol' beard hovering over a truly startled baby!

October 2006Edit

October 3, 2006
Dromiceiomimus: Aw, you're always on about epitaphs, T-Rex! How about something new, like- instead of a sentence people remember you by, an image? Say, 10 seconds of silent video!
T-Rex: That's neat! You could cheat and have 1920s title cards ("DUDES, FORSOOTH! I'M SO DEAD") but just silent images would also be cool. What would you have?
Tooltip: t-rex nobody spoke like that in the 1920s or ever, come on, let's be SERIOUS

October 11, 2006
Tooltip: i may just have to sit down and write 'Dudes! Lesbians! Guess What? Here is How to Get Women to Like You'. it is a great title for a book because it appeals to both dudes AND lesbians.

October 12, 2006
T-Rex: What's terrible? I'm just propagating the stereotype that all men want is sex and that if you want to attract one, then you should have sex with him as soon as possible, and he'll be yours for as long as you keep trading sex for intimac- Wait, that is terrible.
Utahraptor: Uh-huh!
T-Rex: ATTENTION, all heterosexual chicks and gay dudes! Don't listen to me!
Heterosexual Chicks and Gay Dudes: It's too late, T-Rex! We're going to have sex with men RIGHT NOW!!
T-Rex: SERIOUSLY??
Tooltip: c-can you tell them that - that t-rex sent you?

October 16, 2006
T-Rex: I got a letter from an anonymous dude, and he said I exclaimed too much. So, here we are.
Utahraptor: Man, you've got to keep exclaiming! Exclaiming is who you are!
T-Rex: I will only start exclaiming again if I see something surprising.
Utahraptor: Really! Well, have you ever seen a Utahraptor... PUT HIS ENTIRE FIST IN HIS MOUTH??
T-Rex: SURE HAVEN'T!!!!

October 20, 2006
PLAN OMEGA:
T-Rex: Hi we're T-Rex and Utahraptor and we'll be performing "Push It" by Salt-N-Pepa in the original French.
Utahraptor: Cette danse n'est pas pour tout le monde, c'est SEULEMENT pour les personnes sexuelles.
T-Rex: Poussez-le bon!
Utahraptor: Poussez-le VRAIMENT bon!

October 25, 2006
T-Rex: In the past I have called my first "Knuckles and Chuckles", and then later upgraded to the truly compelling "Rocco and Choco, the Twins! Who! Punch!" but now I have an even better nickname!
T-Rex: The CHINESE BUFFET!

October 25, 2006
LATER:
T-Rex: God! Can you make me Chinese so that my fist nickname makes sense?
God: ONLY IF YOU PROMISE TO PUNCH A GUY INTO THE OCEAN AND SAY THAT THE BUFFET WATER IS ON THE HOUSE
T-Rex: Oh that is so a deal.

October 31, 2006
Dromiceiomimus: Hey, have you noticed, T-Rex, how all of the women's costumes for sale seem to have added the word "sexy" in front of them? I can't buy a pirate costume; the only ones for sale are "sexy pirates"! And heaven help me if I wanted to go as a nurse.
T-Rex: It's true! The only nurse costumes for sale are from Sexy Hospital, MD!
Dromiceiomimus: The hospital is a medical doctor?
T-Rex: They're that sexy.
Tooltip: remember, t-rex's costume this year is the uncanny valley! he had to make the costume himself because at the store all they had was sexy uncanny valley.

November 2006Edit


November 14, 2006
Utahraptor: Yeah, because if something important about you is fully determined by your genes, then you never had any control over that, and you're not responsible. On the other hand, if you think babies are born as blank slates, then that's limitless personal freedom, but that has problems too!
God: GUYS THERE IS A THIRD OPTION
T-Rex: What's that? GOD wanted it to be that way?
God: I WAS GONNA SAY LEPRECHAUNS BUT YEAH
God: DANG
God: THAT'S GOOD TOO

November 16, 2006
T-Rex: Ladies and gentlemen: is it time for a new catchphrase?
T-Rex: Sources say: "DAMN girl, sure is!"
T-Rex: That's not the new catchphrase though. I've got - I've got different ones. And here they are! "Let's get remarkably frisky" (useful in many situations), "That's gobbles!" (meaning "that's crazy!", short for 'gobbledygook'), and "I lose at sex".
Dromiceiomimus: Um.
T-Rex: You can use "I lose at sex" for when you lose at sex.
Dromiceiomimus: Um.

November 22, 2006
T-Rex: Man, I've been feeling down all morning. What could possibly cheer me up?
Raccoons and Cephalopods: PENETRATION
LATER:
T-Rex: And so my damn freaky raccoon and cephalopod neighbors were all "penetration" and then I froze, and THEN, I ran away. Why are they always up in my base, freaking out my dudes?

November 22, 2006
Raccoons and Cephalopods: IT'S GOOD TO HAVE YOU BACK T-REX! COME LEARN ABOUT OUR NEW SEXUAL POSITION.
T-Rex: No thanks! I am busy with non-disgusting activities!
Raccoons and Cephalopods: BUT IT'S CALLED "THE WIDOWMAKER", T-REX
Raccoons and Cephalopods: WE NEED YOUR TORSO?
Tooltip: they're not actually sure if they need his torso or not, but it's best not to take chances with The Widowmaker

December 2006Edit

December 4, 2006
T-Rex: Write down in detail the precise steps each person took and let me generalize across the set. I want an algorithm for enlightenment! A checklist for nirvana!
Utahraptor: You - you want religious practices to be subject to the scientific method?
T-Rex: Yes please!

December 4, 2006
T-Rex: Excuse me, Buddhist monks? I'm gonna owe God fifty bucks if I don't get enlightened soon.
Buddhist monks: Dude! We get that ALL THE TIME!

December 4, 2006
Comment: the first version of this comic that went up had a typo where instead of betting t-rex fifty bucks that *he* can't achieve enlightenment, god dropped the 'you' and instead said 'HEY T-REX I BET YOU FIFTY BUCKS CAN'T ACHIEVE ENLIGHTENMENT', which made the whole comic hella more surreal

December 5, 2006
T-Rex: Yes, today truly has been a day of frustrated expectations!
Tooltip: it's the last thing i whisper to myself each night

2007Edit

January 2007Edit

January 2, 2007
T-Rex: THE PRECEDING COMIC SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN READ BY PEOPLE WHO ARE TERRIFIED OF GETTING EXTREMELY RARE GENETIC DISEASES
Comment: i'm terrified of catching a genetic disease, also, learning about medicine

January 3, 2007
T-Rex: Smoochitis is when you have a MEDICAL case of the smooches! Dromiceiomimus, do YOU have smoochitis?
Dromiceiomimus: I don't know, T-Rex! I might!
T-Rex: We should smooch to make extra sure!

January 3, 2007
T-Rex: The only cure: FURTHER SMOOCHING. Symptoms include smooches and caressing about the neck. And buttocks?
Utahraptor: I know how smoochitis develops, yeah.
T-Rex: It's my SPECIALITY, baby!

January 4, 2007
T-Rex: I am getting old! WHICH IS FINE, except I'm starting to worry that all I do is young guy stuff and not mature adult stuff, like having a mortgage, or owning more than one pair of nice pants.

January 4, 2007
Utahraptor: Hah! You're finally not sure if your days of INSATIABLY COMPELLING HEDONISM are all you want?
T-Rex: Maybe! I guess I look at people with real responsibility and wonder if maybe it'd be nice, and if I'm being - left behind? I don't know. I never wanted to be Canonically Adult before!
Tooltip: add 'canonically adult' to the pile of 'great titles for porn magazines taken from dialogue in dinosaur comics

January 5, 2007
T-Rex: Sweet! Okay, so the idea is, there's this guy, Lee, right? Only one day he gains SUPER POWERS. And I'm not sure how he gets them yet but BASICALLY he's got this slot in the top of his head, and he can write words on cards and put them in the slot, and he gains those qualities! So say a decision has to be made: he writes 'decisive' on a card and forces it into his head, and he becomes Decisive Lee! He then has the power to do things decisively. SUPER decisively!
Tooltip: fly, no - but he can cram index cards into his head!
Comment: inappropriate lee, no! put your pants back on!

February 2007Edit

March 2007Edit

March 14, 2007
T-Rex: Failure is just success rounded down, my friend!

April 2007Edit

April 18, 2007
Title: magic realism is where you tell a realistic story but then have the characters turn each other into frogs for a bit. depressive realism is different.

April 18, 2007
T-Rex: I think some people just like the idea that depression might be an advantage!
Utharaptor: ESPECIALLY depressed people.
T-Rex: But not TOO much, because then they wouldn't be depressed anymore!

April 18, 2007
T-Rex: Excuse me, sir, you look depressed! Would you say you have a more accurate view of the world?
Man: I'm not depressed! I'm just eating a sandwich.
T-Rex: A sandwich... made out of your own tears??
Man: HOW DID YOU KNOW
Tooltip: THE FACT THAT YOU COULD EASILY IDENTIFY THE INGREDIENTS OF MY SANDWICH NOW ONLY SERVES TO MAKE ME MORE DEPRESSED
Subject: depressed people maybe if you ate less TEAR SANDWICHES things would start lookin up!!

April 19, 2007
Title: it's a quiet "woo" because any larger and you'd all be overcome with the soul-felt emotion! do not aim comic directly at face.

April 19, 2007
T-Rex: Okay, okay, check this out, Dromiceiomimus: 'You are so beautiful to me, and I want to tell you just how much I love you / I was born to love you / Let's never stop falling in love / Love hurts / But / I would do anything for love'.
Dromiceiomimus: Those are all plagiarized song lyrics! Except for 'but', but there's probably a song called 'But'.

April 19, 2007
T-Rex: Okay, I'm trying really hard this time. 'Baby! / I love you / And if you don't believe that / then What The Hell' Man! Even I'D dump me right now!
Tooltip: it's sort of the opposite of "if this isn't nice, what is?". whenever you find yourself doing something particularly unattractive, take a moment to notice it and say, "man! even I'D dump me right now!"

April 20, 2007
T-Rex: Okay, so I can't write love poetry. That's fine. There are plenty of dudes who will write it for me. But I can PROBABLY write a pretty kick-ass SHERLOCK HOLMES story! I will call it, 'Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Mummy's Curse!'
Title: followed up by t-rex's "Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Cat Who Ate a Person", and the more educational "Sherlock Holmes and the Case of The Troposphere Is Where Weather Exists.

April 20, 2007
Sherlock Holmes: T-Rex, it is I, Sherlock Holmes! I deduced an elementary way to become real, just to ask you to stop writing your story!
T-Rex: Sherlock Holmes!! Can you describe me as 'the Napoleon of RHYME'?
Sherlock Holmes: I can but try!
Tooltip: see that outstanding sherlock holmes writing there in panel six? that's RIGHT.

April 23, 2007
God: SEE THIS IS WHAT I TOLD YOU T-REX JUST BECAUSE YOU WROTE IT DOESN'T MEAN THERE'S SOMEONE WHO IS SUPERMAN AND 'JUST DOESN'T KNOW IT YET'

Utahraptor: Man, what do you have against horses?
T-Rex: NOTHING! I like horses! Some of my best friends are horses. That's why I can make horse jokes! They know I'm just kidding. They know that when I say 'why the long face' I don't actually think all horses have long faces.
Utahraptor: They do though.
T-Rex: Shh! We're not supposed to notice!

T-Rex: (T-Rex! What if, INSTEAD of dealing with this, you simply bought new carpets after he left? Yes! You can solve your emotional problems just by SPENDING MONEY!) (Wow! No wonder people like capitalism so much!!)
Subject: wow! i am finally seeing what the great shakes are about capitalism!

T-Rex: Foreshadowing is when you hint at what's about to happen next in a story! It happens whenever a character announces 'BOY I SURE HOPE THERE ARE NO EXPLOSIONS ON THE NEXT PAGE!!' just before he gets blown up! In an EXPLOSION!
Tooltip: T-Rex used to think foreshadowing was a real yawnfest, but had a change of heart about it when he came across that explosion example in a book he was reading. Basically every page was like that, with characters loudly announcing that they hope they don't get blown up, and then they get blown up on the next page! It was a pretty awesome book, you guys

Narrator: MEANWHILE, IN TUDOR ENGLAND!
T-Rex: Shakespeare, is it still foreshadowing if it's about a woman DEFINITELY blasting into space?
Shakespeare: i dunno... yes?
T-Rex: Shakespeare! The correct answer is 'no!' Pull yourself together, Shakespeare!
Subject: shakespeare! put on some damned pants! it's three in the afternoon.

God: HEY DID YOU KNOW I CAN SEE YOUR DREAMS T-REX
T-Rex: Oh wow! I think it's SO AWESOME that you'll spy on my dreams, but won't approve my friend request on Facebook Dot Com!!
God: UH
T-Rex: DO IT RIGHT NOW
Tooltip: it has come to dominate all other matters in t-rex's life. t-rex is all, ARE WE FRIENDS OR AREN'T WE, GOD, BECAUSE FACEBOOK DOT COM SEEMS TO EQUIVOCATE ON THE MATTER

T-Rex: I Wonder If I Talk Like This, If People Will Still Be My Friends?

T-Rex: Futurism was an art movement where dudes were all 'CARS ARE COOL AND THE PAST IS FOR CHUMPS. LET'S DRAW SOME CARS.'
Subject: cars were new at the time and futurists were big into paintings of cars. also, stories where there's cars
T-Rex: But they also extended beyond art, to food! Futurists had a MANIFESTO for food. It banned the knife and fork AND pasta, AND told people that sardines and pineapples together were tasty times! They banned pasta because it caused skepticism?
Dromiceiomimus: Was the food good?
T-Rex: Maybe? But it wasn't very popular.

May 1, 2007
T-Rex: They didn't want to have to eat their food under UV lamps which 'activated' it, nor did they want to give up pasta. It's crazy! The movement started in Italy, and I believe people canonically eat pasta there all the time! Like, even for breakfast?
Utahraptor: I believe that to be Italian Canon, yes.
T-Rex: I got my ideas about Italy from cartoons!
Utahraptor: I got mine from boxes of pasta!

T-Rex: Hallowe'en is coming up! Soon! Soonish, anyway. Hallowe'en is coming up in several months. I'm probably going as a pretty pretty princess. Anyway.

May 2, 2007
T-Rex: I'm writing a Hallowe'en story! A spooky story called 'The Haunted Nun Who DIES!'
Dromiceiomimus: She lives in a haunted house, and then she dies?
T-Rex: No no, the ghost haunts her. Like a house? And then she dies and the ghost dies too so it's like, Russian nesting doll ghosts. This happens several times over the course of the narrative, so by the end, there's so many ghosts-within-ghosts that the only possible response is ULTIMATE TERROR.

Dromiceiomimus: That's not pathetic fallacy! It's when you give emotions to the inanimate: "ice wants to float", and so on. It can also happen when weather mirrors a character's emotions, like when Shakespeare gets sad, it starts to rain. I think that's what you meant?
T-Rex: OR, when Shakespeare gets pissed, and then a bear shows up and eats whoever pissed him off! Hah, looks like you pissed off the wrong playwright, dude! He's in with the BEARS!!

T-Rex: I found out about the best word yesterday: "frigorific"! It means "cold". With this word I can finally say the sentence, "DAAAAMN, girlfriend, that was totally frigorific!" I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO SAY THAT SENTENCE.

January 5, 2009
Tooltip: "Frigorific"! It is a fantastic word. It is a word you take home to Mom. It is a word that you put in place of your last name to test out what marriage with this word will be like. Ryan Frigorific.
