Luci Phurr’s Imps “Bully for you” #7

It is a fact that children are indeed more sensitive than adults.  For example, if you stick pins in most children, they will cry.*  Most adults will grit their teeth and just deal with it… a few will actually pay extra.

* We don’t advise doing this.  Many children have adults who are surprisingly sensitive to strangers sticking pins in their offspring.

    Once again proving that glasses make everybody cuter!

  2. Wicked

    Now the question is…can the imps survive a playground full of children?

  3. Kiriel

    @keyla Very much so.. he looks so adorable and dapper and just.. so so cutely geeky! >3<
    @Wicked I dunno.. they could survive in hell; but a playground with little kids is about twice as dangerous.. so maybe if they're lucky they'll survive.

  4. Ragedoll

    As dangerous as the playground is I think the Imps can handle it. I can’t wait to see what they do!
    I bet pain has a few of those pins you guys are talking about :)

    The place that hosts the bonus comics was down for a chunk of today. No idea why, it’s a completely separate site and organization from us. However, because of the down-time they had, we’ll be leaving the bonus comic up tomorrow (Tuesday) as well.

    Connected to this, all of us here are Luci Phurr’s Imps wanna send you all a MASSIVE THANK-YOU for voting for us. Last month we spent most of the time in the Top 100 on the TWC site. You guys ROCK!

    It might only take a couple of seconds to click a couple of buttons each day, but we really appreciate that you guys take the time to do that. And believe me when I say, there IS a reason to do it. The better we can do there, the more likely it is that we’ll get the approval to make some nice pieces of merchandise available to you guys (and we have some AWESOME plans there).

  6. keylaleigh

    You’re welcome, Dale! Whatever we can do to help you guys, y’know! And the bonus comic totally explains everything.

  7. Tegger The ORWA Tank Engine

    i vote for you more often than not, but still gotta show some lovin to the other well made comics around the net! as for the disguises, i think that explains why they havent been discovered by luci’s parents, although, wont the teachers go into an uproar if they discover three children that arent supposed to be there, i mean sure, there kids, or at least they look like ones…sorta…but i recll my public schol being very strict on these sorta things, and probably more so with todays child protection, and fear of being sued…sewed? no sued…hmmm…grammar check please!

  8. Salisria

    I don’t the joke in the bonus comic. As an allergy sufferer myself, I think Alistair is showing almost angelic restraint in dealing with the problem.

    @dale TWC had announced that they were going to do a server update over the weekend. Possibly the downtime was connected with that.

  9. keylaleigh

    Sued is right.

  10. dale_mettam

    @ Tegger… and everyone for that matter… ANY votes we get are awesome. We don’t feel like we have to be top of the list, it just helps us show a few people we have some love coming our way. 😀 You guys should vote for anyone and everyone you like. We’re not in competition with any other webcomic.

    …OK, there is that ONE. The one me MUST DESTROY! But Courtney says I have to leave it alone, so…

    But in general, share the love. Plenty to go around.

    @Salisria – Thanks for the clarification. I did suspect it was maybe something like that, or at the very least, something that would clear up later, them being West Coast and all.

  11. keylaleigh

    …which one is that one? I’m curious.

  12. dale_mettam

    Courtney would kill me if I said.

    He might seem like the nice, quiet member of the team, but he’s EVIL!


  13. Kiriel

    Darn I wanna know.. maybe I’ll hafta ask you in private and bah D3>

  14. L.C.S

    I wonder… *evil plotting in progress*
    Kiriel, I think I may know how to make Dale spill the identity of his arch-enemy. :)

  15. dale_mettam

    I fear Courtney more than I fear your show tunes and peppers!

  16. dale_mettam

    Hey Gang.

    The server switch over didn’t happen this weekend but MIGHT happen tonight. Trying to make sure it happens when we don’t have a new strip due, and you guys MIGHT experience a “Down for Maintenance” notice. There is also a VERY SLIM chance depending on when you post a comment it might get eaten by the Interweb Tubes. We are aiming for a time around midnight EST/EDT (whichever it is) and will hopefully be quick.

    Thanks in advance for your patience while we do do this. Hopefully it will make things smoother afterwards. I’ll keep you informed… as soon as someone informs me. 😀

  17. purplerose133

    oooooooooooh oooooooh ooooh which one is it? mysterious! Plz tell us? promise i won’t tell! *makes bambi eyes*

  18. dale_mettam

    It’s that one with… Courtney is watching me again. Tell you later.

  19. Dan Genesis

    Sad thing is I can actually see this happening the way the school system is run in America these days…

    It begs the question as to whether or not those kids or the Imps are more clueless – though I’m pretty sure it’s the Imps….

  20. purplerose133

    alright. this calls for mega pout!!! *sticks out lower lip and turns cuteness meter to “ultra” plz??? Cross my heart hope to die… ok no needle-in-the eye those things scare me….anyway, i won’t tell!

  21. dale_mettam

    I have a three year old who can pout and look cute at an international competition standard. That won’t work. I’m immune.

  22. Dan Genesis

    Dan foresees a new IMPoster in the future – Spill the Beans (A.K.A. PurpleRose)

  23. Courtney

    As a kid I swear I saw things on rare occasions that were not quite…explainable. I’m talking wide awake and clear eyed type of things. Even now as an adult, I’m still convinced that my eyes weren’t fooling me.

    As for the webcomic that Dale wants to destroy…well…just know that Dale once declared war against a cute lil’ ladybug. Dale’s side of the story was that the lady bug looked at him funny. My side of the story was that it’s still just a lady bug. Let it go. It’s not that big of a deal. Geez.
    I feel the same about this other webcomic. Just let it go. No big deal.

    Confession: A week later that same lady bug looked at me funny. So I crushed it.

  24. dale_mettam


    This is why I fear him. Anyone who could do what he did, in cold blood… to a LADY BUG!

    I’ve said too much.

  25. dale_mettam

    ….Server Switch Update….Server Switch Update….Server Switch Update….

    Not tonight, so post away. 😀

    Probably be Wednesday night, Thursday morning.

  26. Byakugan01

    So THATS why not everyone is freaking out. I just thought they were brain dead. More than usual for humans i mean. And sorry i haven’t been commentimng as much, been a bit wrapped up in end of the semester work. One more week…

  27. keylaleigh

    …a… a LADYBUG? But they’re too cute to crush… -sad face-

  28. dale_mettam

    And he says he squished it but it was worse …MUCH worse.

  29. Byakugan01

    Any word on what imp was responsible for inventing college finals btw?

  30. Iceburgh

    @Byakugan: Alisdair, I’d imagine.

    @Courtney: When I was in the single-digits, I was taken to Dachau. I asked what Dachau was, and was told a concentration camp. I immediatly wanted a babysitter for that time and to stay in Bitburg, No dice. My “I see dead people” was quite a bit more panicked.

  31. Ragedoll

    I can’t picture Courtney crushing a ladybug… unless it dribble on him, then maybe. I can however see him crushing ants.. *cringes* you have some crazy ant hills down there haha.

  32. Courtney

    Ragedoll, they say everything comes big in Texas. Food portions. Cattle. Babies. Ant hills. Etc. And that’s exactly what happened with the lady bug. It was huge, and attempting to fly off with my limited edition Penny Arcade and PVP figurines. I did what I had to.

    Iceburgh: Creepy. I’m gonna have to get details later.

  33. Iceburgh

    Send me a message on Facebook, and I’ll send you the story. It’s not exactly a happy one.

  34. purplerose133

    *sniff sniff* a..a..ladybug? but how could you? i always did love ladybugs… butterflies bug me tho. they are so full of it. hmmph. but moths are okay… and crickets. what were we tlking about?

    @Dan Genesis- i was always good at making puppy dog eyes.. i got voted cutest girl in 6th grade. I always new who had a crush on who, and it was all because of big brown eyes. I HAD POWER!!! MWAHAHAHAHA

    And Dale… congrats to the kid. that will get them places. i would no. ive gotten paid for a bottle of water and petals as perfume by being cute.

  35. comichero

    welli was alwasy partial to the blue eyed or green eyed girls in my class tho i was alwasy too bug and menacing to ever get a girl friend not till my college days did i finally get one but at that time ruggedly handsome nerds with sexy beard stuble was all the rage, and i have noticed a signifgant lack in bumble bee action a very smart man of the name of Albert Einstein once said if bees were to go exctint that the human race would die out in with in four years

  36. Kiriel

    huh, funny I crushed a ladybug earlier today ^^; it was being eaten by an ant though, as it was trying to get away :C
