oh, this is still getting interesting
Jacques and Bernice dream sequence
Oh, dear lord.
Never did I ever expect the word spork to be used in a romance novel.
Obviously she is changing the script.
What’s she reading…“50 Shades of Ocean Green”? ;D
Triton (Τρίτων) is a Greek god of the sea, the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite, god and goddess of the sea respectively. Triton lived with his parents, in a golden palace on the bottom of the sea. Later he was often depicted as having a conch shell he would blow like a trumpet.
The spoiler would be Luann or probably Ben?
And this qualifies as romantic writing?
SHARE HER SHELLS??? OMG… it is my idea or it is getting hot in here?
Now I have seen it all – and it totally cracks me up!
Wake up Bernice!!
Bernice went off script and is free associating (lucid dreaming) like using the word like spork.
Anyone notice that in the first panel, she whistles for Jacques? What is he, a sea – dog?
A sexy, watery dream sequence with hunk needing love Merman Jack, and fetching, erotic (they both are erotic) pulsating with attracting desire Bernice, well! Sexy hilarity ensues! Or more.
Panel #3. Is that a white, sea worm coming out of her hair? And her bra…..old hand grenades found on a sunken war ship? Appropriate, because they’re duds, too.
Mermaids in la-la land.
okay do we really need to know what she is actually reading from her reading it?
Share her shells? I guess she hopes Jack will borrow her bra. Well, that’s okay, if he’s into it, too.
Okay time to move on. Is Miss Peach still being published?
When she wakes up she’s going to be a bit excited.
We’ve fallen asleep too
I’ve wondered if a shark eats a mermaid, is it like getting surf & turf….???
Don’t you mean a Dinglehopper?
I have no doubt there is a novel on Amazon with this exact plot. And worse grammar.
This story arc reminded me of this old Soundie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4JDEIYaAPg&ab_channel=paulomoutinho
Yes, … this is getting sporky, …. I mean spooky ….
So we’ve switched to a dream sequence. No room for Monstro here. We hope it doesn’t turn into a nightmare!
She shares sea shells submerged beneath the sea. See?
Panel 3: Bernice has a single gray hair.
Is there a shell game in Beatrice’s future? Or is Jacques swimming upstream with this little guppy?
Mermaids are often portrayed as beautiful and sexy creatures, but there’s a problem…
And, of course, there’s always: “To sleep—perchance to dream: … For in that sleep … what dreams may come?” “Dreams of many things; of Jacques and Bea and bodice shells, of cabbages and kings?”
Riveting story, right?
I just threw up a little.
This is going to lead to a lot of smooching.
Her hair looks like she stuck her finger in a light socket. BzzzzzT.
A little ditty about Jacques and BerniceBoth of them turn into two Pisces ♓️
Hey, hey! This is a FAMILY strip !
Moist lips eh? That’s not the only thing that is moist with her.
It’s risky to get too risqué. 8^ )
Annnnnnnd, Bernice falls asleep and she dreams about Mr. Jack.
Everything, so far, is going as many have predicted. The only question now is What will Wake Bern up?The girl’s got it bad.
Unfortunately she’s falling for a guy that’s a close friend of Luann. And as long time readers know, that when you go up against Luann where a guy is concerned, Luann ALWAYS wins. ALWAYS. Just ask Tiffany.Miguel, Quill, Aaron Hill, even that annoying cockroach Elwood Druit. ALL preferred Luann. The only “Hope” Bernice has is that Luann isn’t the least bit interested in Jack. And even THAT is no guarantee. Luann, at times, wasn’t all that interested in Gunther. Yet she almost always got “territorial” when Gunther turned his attention to other women.
But hey. That was then, and this is now. Someone should tell Ms. Bernice that Mr. Jack likes to model nude and invite her to his next modeling session in professor Zebo’s class.
Heh. Bernice would shatter like a store front window during a riot.
Oh. And here’s a little reminder of that little quip Bernice made when she found out Luann tried to draw a nude Mr. Jack:
Now. Let the inevitable Train-Wreck commence. :)
Oh my, Bernice does have an imagination.
just what the doctor ordered
I take it back; this may be the beginning of Bernice losing her v-card arc. She’s definitely pining away for Jack way more than she did for PIro.
“Triton’s crown” That made me laugh.
wouldn’t it be a dinglehopper?
I looked at the 9/6/2018 strip that was mentioned by Mordock999 -interesting in that Luann states she and Jack are just friends. She has actually made that declaration many times. Hopefully for Bernice it is true! To all the people who are panting to see a sexual relationship portrayed in this comic, you are going to be disappointed. Not going to happen. All these two are going to do is MAYBE some flirting, and it should take at least two years to get that far. I still think it would have been far more appropriate for Nancy to give Bernice something like Jane Austin books for an introduction to romance. Bernice needs to learn how to navigate relationships, but okay, mermaids are cute. This entire storyline will be abruptly abandoned very soon. The really interesting thing I noticed about some of the strips from that 2018 time period was that Shannon was older and speaking normally. No lisp, no baby talk, normal. It’s too bad they regressed her character back several years.
This has nothing to do with today’s strip, but….what the heck ever happened to Delta? She went off to college and everyone forgot about her? She never comes back to visit, no one ever mentions her name. It’s weird.
They don’t have to get their feet wet. They can just dive in!
Cool dream sequence for Our Berniece.
Is this theme going somewhere? I hope so. Put some life into the strip.
What a beautiful dream♡♡♡! Beatrice that comb her hair using a cutlery like a modern Disney’s “Little Mermaid” is funny and a great reference. As a child, Bernice must have seen who knows how many times the movie loving it. Now everything comes out thanks to the romance novel suggested by Nancy. I hope this dream continues and shows other characters of the strip (or at least Luann and Ben) in mermaid form♡♡♡.
It’s called a Dinglehopper! Get it right! :)
This is sooooo bad. Three straight weeks of boring Bernice.
Time to wake up and move on
Let’s see this through. I’m likin’ this!
Then, pair this up with either Bets and Gunther (or both), falling asleep after binge-watching a bunch’a Trek ! … And fade into a sci-fi dream sequence! … Now THAT would be interesting! :)
Anyone remember Diver Dan and Minerva?
I’m not sure glasses work underwater . . . .
Nice navel, Bernice!
[STEVE CANYON IS DREAMING] Oh, wait.
I believe that spork is called a “dinglehopper.”
Okay this is cute. :)
Getting a little risqué don’t you think, with the suggestion of sharing her shells!
I told you it was Jacques!!
Gee, that book must have been riveting! She fell asleep! Guessing this fantasy satisfies those who want a Bern and Jack romance, while keeping others happy as it’s fiction. A story within a story. I think her subconscious turmoil will show up, either Luann or Ben as a shark? Lol! ;-))
“She sheds sea shells by the sea floor”
“Her hair was green as seaweed
Her skin was blue and pale
Her face it was a work of art
I loved that girl with all my heart
but I only liked the upper part
I did not like the tail."
I think I am going to puke.
I love this one!
I’m wondering if there’s anything under those shells.
The book put her to sleep but still opened her up to a dream about it’s content.
CAT: I have another girlfriend who’s a mermaid. She’s half woman, half fish. (He starts licking and kissing a photograph then turns round.)It’s Miranda, my girlfriend.
As she comes out of the water we see the top half of her is a fish, the bottom half is a woman.
HOLLY: Somehow I’d imagined she’d be a woman on top and a fish on the bottom.
CAT: No! That’s a stupid way round. (He sticks out his tongue briefly, grins and waves.)
- Red Dwarf, “Better Than Life”
She still has a bra. And he doesn’t.
…share her shells with…LOL!!
Will she be awakened by a kiss from Jack and it turns out to be from Luann’s dog?
I guess the “spork” refers to all the plastic we dump into the oceans.
She has very Perky Seashells.
Now if we could segue to Jack and find out what he dreams about when he is by himself, that would be interesting. What’s really on his mind?
Whistling underwater??? Preposterous…at least one date with Ber and Jack? PLEASE!
Jack is a honey-tongued merman, and he is ripped. That’s more than enough to turn the head of any daydreaming deprived and desperate mermaid, Bernie included….
Watch out for Bernice. The brain is the most important sex organ.
Complimenting moist lips at the very moment of meeting is highly unlikely.
Has this strip “jumped the shark” ?
Look at it this way, Spacehoppers !! Would you rather go back to all that political s**t we had less than two weeks ago?
Careful about being Jack the bodice ripper.
Happy 73rd birthday, Greg!
That’s Jack alright, “ripped yet gentle”.
“I comb it with a spork”…funniest comic punchline ever, hands-down! :D
