Great job!
I like Abe’s short attention span. Or maybe it was just an rpg all along. :lol:

“My room is clothing optional. And Barbie opts nay.” and “Here comes the hammer!” are my favorite lines for this week.

Too bad it’s not this hammer.

Abe seema a man… ah xenomorph after my own heart, at least on the Role-playing part.

Excellent one Mr B.!

I wish all of my counseling role-play sessions were actually like this.

Great job Bernie. I stayed up just to catch this! (Oh, and to wait until NYSEG opened up, I needed to call them ;P)

You really know how to make a depressed person grin from ear to ear.

Well, now we know what happened on their date at last.

This week’s comic made me feel like going out to buy a barbie and tell the girl/boy at the shop to gimme the more suitable one to get naked fast… I’ll have lunch first.

Might be my last lunch at home if I end up doing that.

That was funny, especially since I RP. Though, not quite like that.

I especially loved Prestons avatar! I seen that ugly troll dude before elsewhere but can’t remember! Also.. is there gonna be some jealousy between Abe and Preston? Abe sure was pretty one sided with that hammer!

Awww, they’re getting along so nicely. I know what that’s like, and it never seems that way when you’re the one getting angry.

Hearty thanks for your hysterical strip (hope the wife wasnt when you did) and sincere congratulations on the arrival of your daughter (guess she didnt). a wonderful time, seeing a child discover all the things and experiences we dont remember. and with good reason: see the contents of those pampers. yeesh.

Again, Bernie, you have topped yourself! Huzzah!

I have a 12 year old daughter and when she was younger, we had what she labeled as “The Dead Barbie Graveyard”. It was a cardboard box where all of her naked Barbies were stored. She couldn’t ever get their clothes back on – so they were just playing dead until she decided to get someone else to dress them.

Dressing 5 month olds is definitely easier!

Hilarious. But what exactly was Preston’s avatar? That thing was great.[/i]

I personally think the mini-Preston glasses make the avatar, in this case. The figure goes from somewhat intimidating to perfectly silly, just with some spectacles. Hmm, sounds like the big Pres, too.

My first post here, by the way. Heard about aLp somewhere or another several months ago, but it slipped off my mental radar. I’ve now managed to read all ~157 issues over the past week. My neighbors are probably ready to call the cops on the guy who lives alone and laughs hysterically all the time.

So, as an AvP fan (now aLp fan) and a fan of good webcomics, just thought I’d say keep up the great work, Bernie, and thanks for all the chuckles! :D

Hm, Corrina looks an awful lot my ex. Same glasses. Same skinny body. What kind of doll is modeled after? Not that I’m going to go out and buy one or anything. No. Of course not.

I’d say this is probably one of the best so far. HERE COMES THE HAMMER!

Since I have two younger sisters, I’ve seen lots of Barbies. Allways found them disgusting when naked (the Barbies).
No sexual organs…And after looking so busty in clothes, you find there’s only a strange conical torso with tiny breasts :?

Btw, didn’t understand the shit-hits-fan thing. Obviousely a pun about “fan”=”buff” and fan=”the-thing-that-whisks-air”. But what’s the joke… :(

until next post…
OK, ended :cry:

Good strip, as always, but is “Speak through your Avatar” something that Abe would really say?

big ben
December 12, 2005 at 11:13 pm

Think he just repeats somthing he knows belonging to roleplaying (the psych variant).

“Excellent! Now roll for damage!”

That line made me laugh pretty hard for quite some time … :lol:

EDIT: Just learned today … in my History Class no less … that the American Barbie doll was based on a “doll for adult males” from Germany. Ew. If/when I have any kids … they’re not getting any Barbie dolls for Christmas …

Ben: The “shit hits the fan” line is because Abe had been literally carrying out the phrases like “here comes the hammer” … and if he’s got a fan … um …

o.O

D’oh, I could have gotten those super sexy bonus points if I’d gotten home earlier. *pout*

I think Abe’s confusing RPGing with LARPing. Or doing a mixture of the two. At least his heart was in the right place, until he started smashing action figures with a hammer.

The shit hits the fan is an expression people use to say when something really bad is going to happen… like in: “When those zombies break out, the shit is really gonna hit the fan!!![color=white:3aef368295][size=1:3aef368295]OMFGWTFBBQ!!!1!two![/size:3aef368295][/color:3aef368295]

Well, and there’s a fan standing there, and the joke was that Abe was probably going to make that expression… happen… eww…

And you, sir, are new to the site. Welcome. Have a cookie.

Abe the alien’s entire existence is based annoying Preston (the pred) by being really, really, REALLY stupid. This is actually one of the more intelligent, sensitive things he’s done.

the naked barbies make me laugh. i wonder what little girls think when they realize that barbie doesn`t have certain parts that THEY do.

i never played with barbies in my childhood. :neutral:

I did somtimes…
With the long haired ones, you can behead them and hang the head with the hair on the neck’s trunk, so it comes to be placed at the chest, to form a hunchback barbie.

No, I think he’s just confusing roleplaying in psychotherapie with role playing games like AD&D. With the ice, hammer and let’s-hope-he-don’t he just overdoes the puppet avatar theme. In LARP you bash each other with silicone (yeah, Abe) swords, not puppets with hammers.

Stop! Hammer Time!

The icestorm bit was hilarious! :D It would have been even a little bit more funny if the..uhm.. “talking bubbles” were pointing towards the avatars when Corinna and Preston are fighting.

Still, nothing beats:

-Its not like I kill babies.
- Oh no? Show me a baby right now thats alive!

:D :D :D

I’m aware of what LARP is, that was a joke.
