You know...if I ran that arcade, I'd just hire Myoopi right then and there. Fill one of those mini-cranes or gumball machines with his, erm, output. Laughing You could pay him in snausages or...wait, what *does* he eat? o_o

Yeah, stuff that little furball into one of those "PLAY TILL YOU WIN" games and watch the tokens roll in.

At one time, in front of a giant crane machine, we contemplated of having our baby nephew do exactly just that............... Laughing
(And help our crane grab the goodies!)

Things like this tend me to make me wonder if there more fantasies about animals that crap candy and ice cream than I would expect there to be, or fewer.

This comic is... what, 2-3 years old? And the poop jokes still haven't gotten old. That is a testament to the series if I ever saw one.

I know that I really shouldn't find the joke in the comic as funny as I do being that I am adult, but I can't help but enjoy this comic. There I said it and I am not taking it back.

Ah yes, now I remember! I knew it was in one of the early strips, but couldn't remember precisely. Anime hyper Stock up the fridge and hire the little bean bun then!

That doesn't seem like a very realistic representation of an arcade. Panel 4 clearly shows loose coins located somewhere light can reach.

I think the demonstrated answer is: everything, but try to keep the action figures at bay.

I was just gonna say the exact same thing. Laughing

Murphy just can't let the poor little guy be content. One second it's the the clothes dryer, the next it's OOOOH THE CLAW. He's obviously hanging out with the wrong group of friends.

Wow. Apparently Myoopi's output is not equivalent to the amount of input. O_O Hilarious!

Hmph, if it was a real, old school arcade, it would take quarters and not tokens. Laughing

Also, it's amusing that this came out now since I recall a few days back there was a news story about some kid climbing in to one of these and needing to be cut out of it. Why people didn't just keep playing until they caught it is beyond me. I don't know how long it takes Robin to draw these, so I'm not sure if that partially inspired this or not.

You know, my dog does something similar when someone tries to pick her up as well. Nowhere near as pretty.
