Localisation Alice was originally having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I hesitated over the choice because 'peanut butter and jelly', sounds more American than 'peanut butter and jam', but it also sounds more correct for use in a comic.

It's one of those minor things that take on way more importance than they should have. I think anyone who's ever agonised over a detail will know that warm glow of satisfaction you get when you make a minor change nobody's ever going to notice or care about, and it's enough to make that line stop bugging you. I weighed the jelly/jam decision carefully before settling on the locality-neutral 'banana', and feeling inordinately proud of myself.

Peanut butter and banana is also a good sandwich, and vaguely healthy! Try it if you haven't.

As always, don't forget to vote at Top Web Comics to see today's Whitespace Neko bonus panel!

Still holding strong at #15, and we've overtaken Housepets!

Looking at the vote tallies, I think we can realistically make it to #12 this month if we keep our momentum going on the voting.

There's a bit of a jump to #14, but after that positions 12, 13, and 14 are a pretty close race. There's another big jump to the #11 spot, but after that we're contending to get our banner showing up on the front page!

[update: Now it's a close race from 12 to 15! Go 'Weasels!]

Whenever my cat thinks he wants something like that I let him smell it. That generally leads to him looking dejected and wandering away with his stub-tail twitching in protest. I can relate to this comic. ^_^

When my cat dosen't like something, he shakes his paw at it...he also does that if it's too hot when we toss him scraps, but that tends to lead to him trying to eat it anyway. THEN he shakes his paw at it and walks away...and comes back later when it's cooled down.

Actually, I think mayonnaise and banana tastes better, especially if the mayo is made with lemon juice. There's a longer shelf life and everything.

@Sarah: That's adorable, all I'm thinking is "shake harder boy!".

@GabrielsThoughts: That sounds disgusting. I didn't throw up in my mouth a little, but if I did it'd help me imagine that.

I, myself HAVE given peanut butter to my one cat off of my finger. NO I do not give him enough to make him sick, just a little taste of it that's all... It still mannages to make him start drooling a little :)

my cat will eat the bread, no matter what's in the sandwich, she also steals my muffins, and crackers.

Alright, I know Bummy was awal for the last few comics. What is he holding?

Reply GabrielsThoughts, March 14th, 2013, 10:14 pm


That's because the ministry of propaganda has managed to link lemons, bananas, and mayonnaise with the natural act of sex.

All mayonnaise is technically egg white and margarine. Bananas on the other hand are an appealing fruit.

I still haven't figured out why naughty fan fictions are called lemons.

Hey Thecatmolloy, where are you from if you don't mind my asking? Its just curious, I always thought you were from America but your comment about debating which to use Jelly or Jam had me curious about it.

@Lycos 'TheCatMolloy' is from Ireland, as he has said himself in at least one 'Gar' post.

@LastRhapsody: It's meant to be an SD card. Also, Bummy's in the last couple of comics, he's just really subtle.

@Lycos: I'm from Dublin, Ireland.

@GabrielsThoughts: We evidently don't have the same ministry of propaganda.

Obviously, you have George Orwell's ministry of truth. Whereas American media was influenced by Marshall McLuhan.

@Kirbylubber: I know, right? I busted out laughing when I saw her SHOVE Neko's face into the bread. XD I'm a bad man for this, but still... XP
