    Awesome comic, Giant. I think Belkar has several more nasty surprises ahead......

    Revenge is a dish that is best served cold. Or hot with 2 cups of cream and 3 sugar cubes. Awesome comic Giant.

    Great!!!

    I can really sympathize with Belkar, I've felt like that many times.

    In fact I got so drunk 2 weeks ago that I too kissed a random woman, luckily she chose not to seek revenge!..... I think..... maybe she's waiting..... you know "revenge a dish best served cold" and all that..... OH GOD I HOPE SHE DOESN'T READ OOTS..... SOMEONE HELP ME!!!! :o


    Where can I get that brand of coffee? Seems like a real pick me up!

    PS: FIRST PAGE WHOO HOO!!!! ;D

    Curtains would do the trick :) But anyway: brilliant comic (although I'm surprised that V even brought Belkar home, I would have left him were he fell)

    I was really expecting "but they haven't found a cure for hang-overs" or "but they haven't invented venetian blinds". But I should trust the Giant to blow everything out of proportion. Dimmer on the sun ...

    This was excellent!
    There aren't really any exclusive or original ideas on TVTropes. That's kind of the point.

    Sweet, sweet revenge. Somehow it doesn't seem enough (or, at least, I'd make the little swine suffer more than that), so don't go assuming that V's all out of tricks yet;

    How about &quot;Glodhammers Runes of Forced Druken Memory Playback&quot;? I'm pretty sure I've had that cast on me a few times.

    I am not one of those who saw that coming. That was, I think, the first time I have ever laughed out loud within half an hour of waking up at 6:00 am.

    I'm amazed at the amount of electrical (magical?) appliances available in the OOTS world. First the bug zapper, now a coffee machine. Are these made by GE (General Enchant-ics) ?

    If I wasn't at work I think i would actually ROFL...

    I think i smiled at every panel (except panel 2) and actually laughed out loud at the punch (or is that boom?) line.

    Good stuff.

    Great comic, I can really relate to Belkar. I usually feel that way before my morning dose of caffeine.

    How do spoiler-tags work?


    Hmm, can't work it out, so took out a comment that might be considerd as a spoiler.

    That was a nice surprise. *g* I expected something along the lines of &quot;Did something happen yesterday?&quot;

    Although I have to say that the coffeemaker looks a little bit out of place.

    Oh, sweet, sweet - sorry, bitter, sour, sweaty and explosive - revenge! Although I must say that I think it might be just a wee bit out oh proportion - I hope noone reacts that way if I ever did something inapproproate while drunk.
    But maybe that's - oh, better hide this -

    a way for Haley to get better: get sopping drunk, then she 1) will get that drunken courage and 2) she'll get the ability to deny responsibility


    On a side note: Man, you gotta be fast around here. I looked in on the page, still no update, came back ten minutes later, read the comic and went to the forum: page 2 already!
