Thanks for your patience, folks; suffering a bit of writers block at the moment. I'm trying to keep up, but pushing through a brick wall is hard.

Anyway, those of you coming from SmackJeeves may have noticed something. Neko the Kitty celebrated strip #1000 last July. However, according to the site stats on SmackJeeves, THIS is the thousandth comic.

There's a numerical skip in the archive to cover a character suffering memory loss, and from that point on the strip numbers were a convention rather than a count, so whether or not this is the "real" strip #1000 depends on your perspective.

Anyway, here's a bonus watercolor of Neko and Keno playing together, and as always don't forget to vote at Top Web Comics to see the bonus panel.

Today's Whitespace Neko may depend on how accurately Detroit was portrayed in the movie RoboCop.

I always assumed real limericks were much more offensive and less lilting.

Oof. That's a lot of limericks.
No wonder it took so long to make it.
Still pretty sure there are some made-up words in there.

Nice touch. Well worth the time it took. :)

That is some awesome rhyming right there. You never cease to expand my vocabulary. My brain thanks/curses you (mostly thanks) XD

I love the watercolors - and that bonus picture? Poster material right there.

@GDA (Guest): Nope, they're all real words.

<3 I should have expected the ending... but really thought they might have a real father son moment... oh well. Loved it anyways.
you should totally make Neko Playing cards! Or... Tarot cards? I dunno the cute bonus picture just reminds me of that!

Pretty sweet I tried a limerick battle back in high school... wasn't good at improv limericking? if that's a term. Anyways, I turned it into a rap battle style and used a rhyme I worked on for a month... with that in mind I must tip my head off for how amazing you limericked.

@GabrielsThoughts: yea this is how real limericks sound but your not alone in your thinking that "Dirty" Limericks are the real ones, most people think that way
I had thought that way till I saw a shirt come into the Goodwill I worked at that read 'I am the man from Nantucket', but I had not yet read the whole dirty limerick for that so I looked it up on Google

You, sir, are fucking AMAZING to be able to do these strips where the whole page are characters rythming. I try to do something like that and I'm lucky to get two sets of rythmes

did you spend the night with a dictionairy and thesaurus coming up with these and makin' sure their spelt correctly?

Typo To the people commenting, "I think you made up words" - get a vocabulary. There is one typo however - "spatialy" should be "spatiality."

I am not sure which one to choose, actually o.O One would think it's easy to choose between reality and fantasies, but no, if both of them are awesome, it's just not.

I think I just became a little bit intelegent

For Clarification's Sake Is he calling reality gay or merely insulting his gay son? Either way nice punchline.

This is what happens when you get writers block?
