I love a good ending like this. Now for some ice cream.

*Ice Cream truck crashes into the wall*

We don't really go for that kind of humour here XD
WCP 1st Jun 2020, 4:17 AM
At least he didn’t ask for Kool-Aid. Because that would be cliched

Not even Good Humor?

I am not so sure about Good Humor. Good Humor has not been the same since Unilever bought the company. Unilever also dismantled Good Humor's ice cream truck system, mostly because many American municipalities have banned ice cream trucks over noise and security concerns.

Good Humor trucks are alive and well in Brookfield, Illinois.

That is understandable, given the blowback from some comments from a couple of story arcs back.

And now Blanco is all alone. It's what he deserved most, don't you think? After that he may have a hard time even finding anybody else who wants to train with him.

And he even set up a celebration party after getting his ass kicked? Dumb :D

I think he had it set up before the event XD

This is why treating students with respect is a good idea, at least things will turn around for the students. :-)

Maybe Blanco will eventually learn to respect his students one day.....Maybe? :D

It will likely be a cold day in July before Blanco makes a mea culpa like that. (It can get cold (50° F or below) in Chicago in July. It actually got cold enough to snow in June of 1911, so anything can happen.)

Call me sadistic, but maybe down the road, Blanco will have his dojo bought out from under him by Nick. A forgiving Nick will likely then keep a groveling Blanco on staff after sending him on a quest of his own.


Jason has finally slimmed down, while Blanco is about ready to bulk up. Hopefully, Blanco will stop himself before he bulks up.

Congrats to Nick and Black Thunder.

Any chance Blanco is going to put on the pounds and come crawling to Nick to help him? Very Dodgeball.

Just you watch XD

Oooh! You're giving a hint here-I guess this is not the last of Blanco, whom I say is BlanD-o! XD
An agreement or merging of business? This I gotta see...🤩
kennethsarmstrong 1st Jun 2020, 3:02 PM
I can't look. I hope Blanco restains himself. Not even Blanco deserves what Jason went through after getting cut from his hockey team.
Jake Elmer 1st Jun 2020, 12:52 AM
Aw they missed out on the after party
Shaggy 1st Jun 2020, 1:23 AM
Im glad everyone is getting along nicely now! Well almost everyone XD

And this is why we don't make advance orders on food delivery.
maxgoof 1st Jun 2020, 1:13 PM
And let me guess who's going to be the tubbo the next time we see him.

Missing out on a pity party is more like it. Blanco will pity himself while belittling his students over their loss. Withholding a student's check over a check "that has yet to clear" is just petty. (It sounds like it did clear, but Blanco is still holding on to the student's black belt anyway.)
WCP 2nd Jun 2020, 12:08 AM
They ain’t his students anymore. They answer to the skunk now.
kennethsarmstrong 2nd Jun 2020, 5:15 PM
I should have referred to them as his former students 🤔😶. I do think that if they had come back, Blanco would have read the riot act to them 🤬🙄🥱.
WCP 3rd Jun 2020, 7:21 PM
Pretty much. It pretty much establishes that Blanco is more than just the villain of the story. He’s a straight up bully

-Taunting Nick that he’ll buy his dojo since he can’t pay it off
-Fat shaming Jason
-Dishing it out but can’t take it (see Jess’ wiener pump comment)
-Berating and yelling at his students
-Forcing Jenny to disqualify herself in the tournament by hurting Jason with an illegal move so Blanco can face in when he’s not 100% (and who knows what Blanco would have done to her if she had failed to do that)
-Withholding a student’s belt because he cant pay in full
-Forcing one of his students (should they have won the tournament) to give Blanco the prize money so he can buy a motorcycle for himself

It’s all straight out of the bully handbook
WCP 3rd Jun 2020, 7:25 PM
This pretty much shows that Blanco is running what appears to be a McDojo. What’s a McDojo you ask? Well here is a link that explains what it is: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.urbandictionary.com/define.php%3fterm=McDojo&amp=true

But in laymen’s terms, is a martial arts school that tends to place profits over actual teaching.
kennethsarmstrong 4th Jun 2020, 11:47 AM
A McDojo sounds like a lot of those for-profit colleges that swindle their students and, thanks to Betsy DeVos, are all but allowed to get away with it🤑😾🤬.

I would rather not get too political, but leaving swindled students with crushing debt, an all-but-useless diploma, and virtually nonexistent job prospects, makes me nauseous🤢😡.
kennethsarmstrong 3rd Jun 2020, 8:12 PM
Is that a brace on Blanco's neck? Surely Nick could not have hit him that hard 🐯😵. Otherwise, Blanco would have ended up in the hospital 🤕.
FurrySunny 3rd Jun 2020, 11:21 PM
This arc reminded me from the beginning of "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story".

I saw this movie only once in my life over a decade ago and it´s still stuck in my head.😫

Well I liked it XD

i kind of wanted to see him use a dick pump but it broke on him XP
