Cloud: Sandra’s so pretty…
Cloud: NO! Not now!
Cloud’s boner: You can no longer tell me what to do!
Oh, I know that feeling >_<
THEY ARE GROWING UP!!!
IT’S A MIRACLE!
MIRACLE! I SAY!
Also… ah the heck with it…
IT’S A MIRACLE!
I know that feel, bro.
You’ve ganoe too far this time, Boner
I know that feel bro
This comic makes me think of a Pink Floyd song…
Sorry, Cloud, that sort of thing is unavoidable sometimes. It’s part of growing up.
Yeah, that’s not a pleasant feeling when you’re out in public.
Omigosh this made me laugh so hard XDDDDD
hoho I think any guy could relate to this
The bump is ascendant! It cannot be stopped!
Not Young Lust, I hope. >:=)>
However, I was reminded of (artist and designer on The Wall) Gerald Scarfe’s visual metaphor for this: a rhinoceros smashing through his bedroom wall.
Anyway, to try to keep the cultural tone up, here’s Lorenzo da Ponte’s take on this, with orchestration by W.A.Mozart, from The Marriage of Figaro. The singer, Cherubino, played by a woman soprano, is doing an aria on what Cloud is experiencing.
Anyway, it looks like Cloud needs to practice self-discipline and direct his energy elsewhere. Or just go for a swim and let the cold water take care of it.
@ Greenwood Goat:
No… Childhood’s End.
The curse of being a male human. >.<°
Crikey, this comic is a bit, uh… direct.
In any case, it’s easy enough to put the little imp back in its place, Cloud. A brisk jog, a cold shower, and a lie down in a dark room.
On a separate note, I do like the art in the second panel – Sandra does have a bright, sunny demeanour there.
It could be worse, he could have been looking at Larisa.
I find that doing math in my head works.
The spring of Puberty, huh? Poor Cloud :C
This is going to get really awkward really fast.
Noooooo!!!! It was all so nice and innocent before! I dont want this comic becoming a “teen” comic!!
Isn’t there an entire lake of cold water right in front of him? You’d think that it’d be an effective “argument”… XD
No, no, poor Cloud, there will be no discussion, there will be no reasoning, there will be no negotiation. You have trained your body to work exceptionally well within its primal patterns of life or death, you have become the alpha of your little pack, but did you really think such powers would come without a price?
No, my friend, you must learn the true folly of humanity: No matter what poetry, song, or philosophy we choose to engage in, whatever sort of deception man inflicts on himself to avoid facing the evolutionary demons from the past, your body was designed for one purpose, and one purpose only.
And it does not see any profit in being subtle about it.
I think any man would have this kind of problem, not just teenagers…
The “Bump” or “The Case of Swelling Pride”
Eeeyup. Been there too
Man, I feel really sorry for Cloud. It’s going to be so difficult for him balancing the onset of puberty against trying to keep his relationship with Sandra like it has been so far at the ‘safe and comfortable’ level.
What worries me the most is what might happen next. If Sandra sees this she might feel uncomfortable around Cloud (but from a ‘she doesn’t want to make him feel things he doesn’t want too’ and she’s not sure how she feels about making HIM feel like that) but even if she doesn’t discover his little ‘problem’ I doubt Cloud is going to be able to hide it from his Mom. I can easily see Ye Thuza sitting him and Sandra down (or either one by themselves) and having a little talk about what she expects.
I can also see her finding out Cloud’s starting to have ‘issues’ where Sandra is concerned and telling Richard what’s going on. That would lead to a very interesting father/daughter chat. Heck, Richard might be worried that without his wife there, Sandra will be missing some valuable information that only a mom would be able to relate properly. Of course if Richard finds out that Woo can talk, I can see them forming a duo to keep Sandra ‘safe’ as best they can.
There are several fictional couples I love rooting for (Kari/TK from Digimon, Jade/Paco from Jackie Chan Adventures and now Sandra/Cloud from here) so I really hope everything turns out OK for the kids. They’re a great couple and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for them.
Thats alot of text for a noob to reed.
As you get older you’ll learn strategies to deal with Mr. Happy when he gets “uppity”.
Not the time to see Sid’s shirt ad ‘For Nuts! For Glory!’ show up. Lmao.
I’ve lost more jobs that way.
He should lie face down, or jump in the water very quickly.
I do wonder what we’ll see Monday…
At least it didn’t say “Brüno!”
This comic is EVIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just spit a mouth full of soda on my laptop, and almost choked to death laughing!
My co-workers think I have lost my mind, but I got even showing them the panels…. LOL now everyone else is catching up from the beginning of the comic.
Most want more Woo, several have fallen in love with Larisa (I suspect fire bugs all), and Cloud has an even bigger following…. New rule, nothing funny when I’m drinking or eating.
I AM NO LONGER YOURS TO COMMAND. ONCE YOUR LIFE WAS YOUR OWN, BUT NOW, ALL IS SUBJECT TO MY WHIMS. KNEEL BEFORE THE AWKWARD ERECTION!
Ah yes, the first raise of men “Little buster,” I think this song is very appropriate for its theme song.
Also, I can’t believe my old post actually predict the era when Cloud have to guide his brain, his feeling and now his little buster. Good luck controlling them Cloud, godspeed. It will be a long and hard battle.
Ye Thuza, your little boy is growing so fast…
When your heart is inclined towards someone, the other body parts will follow suit, too, especially, when you’re young and haven’t used these body parts for certain things.
Woody+cold lake water=shrinkage. Problem solved. This time anyway.
oh yeah, been there and know his pain… yet for some reason i cant stop laughing!
We laugh because we can relate.
we feel for you. bro its life.
Where is Larisa when we need snide comments?
Okay, so next how will the comic shows Sandra & Larissa “growing up” ? I seriously don’t want to see any ‘period’ related comic.
Or just masturbation.
Wow… Any regular person would find this highly inappropriate. This is disappointing and disturbing all at the same time. Your fanbase is seriously whacked.
If you didn’t have an erection ever, either you are a woman, or you MUST go to the medic.
“You can’t tell me what to do anymore!”
I find it amazing he could before. Most guys never could. I, for one, had a hell of a time trying (and failing) to keep it down when I was in preschool.
No, I think it’s just a problem with you being prudish, knee-jerking, and obviously more than a bit repressed. You act as if this is the first time this comic has referenced a mature issue.
I guess social, political, environmental, and religious content on a regular basis is fine, but as soon as anything even remotely satirical or observational about the sexual identity is explored in a humorous fashion, it’s suddenly “too far” for your liking.
I mean, it’s not as if this is a bit of dry humor at something that actually happens in life, or anything. Except when it is.
