You'd think that his experience at the karate tournament last year would have humbled Blanco Zapka, but no.........


GoodKaptainKook 4th Jun 2021, 12:01 AM
How the hell did he lose all that weight so fast, I though last time we saw him I remembered him being 500 lbs lol XD

FreyFox 4th Jun 2021, 1:45 AM
That's comic logic for you ^^
Bryan Hoskins 4th Jun 2021, 11:19 AM
Is that like GoAnimate logic? LOL
WCP 5th Jun 2021, 4:32 PM
That or lipo. I’d believe either. XD
GoodKaptainKook 6th Jun 2021, 8:55 PM
Lipo may have sucked the fat out of his body, but IMO he should have also gotten the fat sucked out of his head!

Karma strikes again
WCP 4th Jun 2021, 12:05 AM
With the laughter being that loud, I’ll bet that his wiener pump is still broken too. XD

"You think he's compensating for something?"

Everyone was surfing up, but Blanco's speedo be sinking down! XD
FreyFox 4th Jun 2021, 1:45 AM
Hehe yes
Kevin_Redcrow 4th Jun 2021, 12:48 AM
Yes! In your face, Blanco!

Karma is a bitch fickle visitor.
kennethsarmstrong 4th Jun 2021, 12:52 AM
At least it wasn't Howard who lost his swimming trunks πŸ₯΄πŸ™„πŸ˜ˆ.

Do the phrases "skin-tight" and "torn off" have any meaning to anyone, much less Blanco?

No, I will not ask how Blanco was able to shake off lose all that weight within fifteen months. Maybe he gave in and asked a forgiving Nick for help. I highly doubt that, however.

I assume that Blanco's dojo is still open. He likely has a new group of suckers students at his dojo as well.
johncrew 4th Jun 2021, 12:58 AM
Blanco always knew how to surf?
Tjimmy1999 4th Jun 2021, 3:25 PM
Guy has talent, but he doesn't seem to know how to not be an asshole.
WaxBadger 4th Jun 2021, 1:07 AM
Maybe Blanco should get involved with robot fighting, that way his pants stay up when his overweight robot gets stuck on the floor saw.
FreyFox 4th Jun 2021, 1:46 AM
Hehe maybe ^^ but then he would have other people build the robot for him...
kennethsarmstrong 4th Jun 2021, 4:51 AM
And, like Donald Trump, Blanco won't pay for the robot, especially if it performs poorly.

Sorry for the political joke, but what kind of person would run a business by running other people out of business by not paying them for services rendered?
Tjimmy1999 4th Jun 2021, 3:24 PM
Someone with the maturity of a cheesy old B movie.

I've learned not to believe reputations anymore. P. T. Barnum was not only not a swindler, he hade it his business to expose swindlers. One time he exposed a photographer who claimed to make photographs of people along with an ancestor of theirs. He exposed the swindle by created a similar photograph of himself with Abraham Lincoln.
Randy Ringtail 4th Jun 2021, 2:27 AM
That's karma for you, Blanco!
Shaggy 4th Jun 2021, 2:31 AM
"Aw shucks! I done lost my pants" :-P
Fox-Jake 4th Jun 2021, 2:48 AM
A comic with Howard is a win any day. :D
Tjimmy1999 4th Jun 2021, 3:51 AM
Goddamn it. He's even wearing a speedo. Humble my ass, though now I want to know what his meat looks like.
FreyFox 4th Jun 2021, 10:43 AM
Nothing special XD
Long Tom 4th Jun 2021, 9:34 PM

Maybe Blanco stumbled into Chinatown and some restaurant decided to snatch his wiener to make soup from it.
kennethsarmstrong 5th Jun 2021, 6:29 AM
Never mind that. How did Blanco stuff himself into that Speedo?
WCP 5th Jun 2021, 4:36 PM
It’s pretty much a cocktail frank.
Long Tom 6th Jun 2021, 12:21 AM
Long Tom
Try a cactus.
kennethsarmstrong 6th Jun 2021, 7:20 PM
Oooh, I am not going there. Not quite.)

(I almost forgot. A male tiger has barbs on his weenie frank.)

Thomas Dye wasn't too happy when I mentioned Alistair Katt having the same characteristic.
kennethsarmstrong 10th Jun 2021, 1:44 AM
Thomas considered his first two Newshounds arcs family-friendly. The final arc bordered on the TV-14 rating. (Or Miss Mab's web14 rating.)
kennethsarmstrong 6th Jun 2021, 7:12 PM
(Snickers quietly at that joke.)

Sounds like it resembles something you get from Oscar Mayer. I'm thinking of the full-length ones.

(Hopes that this post isn't yanked from the forum)

Looks like Blanco put on some weight since the last time we saw him. He also lost his speedo in the waves. What an embarrassing situation! And without that crotch pump, everyone will see how big he actually is!
FreyFox 4th Jun 2021, 10:43 AM
Technically he's actually LOST weight since his last appearance XD
Tjimmy1999 4th Jun 2021, 3:30 PM
Can't say he at least made some progress. He just didn't go very far.
Long Tom 4th Jun 2021, 9:33 PM
Long Tom
Even in a comic, if Blanco had not lost the weight, he would have probably kicked the proverbial bucket.
FreyFox 5th Jun 2021, 10:05 AM
Most likely.
kennethsarmstrong 5th Jun 2021, 6:27 AM
Blanco sure has. At the ending of "Enter the Vulpine", Blanco had gotten so big that he was unable to fit through his house's door. Fortunately, he was fit enough to lose the weight that he gained very quickly.
Excelsior_Thirty 4th Jun 2021, 3:59 PM
There's no way an arrogant being will have a perfect win in everything, I'll say-a flaw can exist! For Howard, hopefully, he has won in life.πŸ˜‰

Three questions, Frey, does Bland-o have a girlfriend himself? When did you announce Howard's last name? How is it pronounced, and with a name like that that, is he Polish in origin?

(Fitting as we have in the news now we have an NCAA basketball coach retiring. If you're not Polish, or never heard of Duke University of Durham, NC, Mike Krzyzewski will be hard to pronounce...)
FreyFox 5th Jun 2021, 10:06 AM
Blanco is single and a bit of a swinger. Howard's last name (pronounced Ko-wal-chick) was revealed in one of my patreon AMAs earlier this year ^^.
Excelsior_Thirty 5th Jun 2021, 10:07 PM
Ah, it could also be a Yiddish or Jewish root too, as I know "boychick" is from there. Speaking of boychick, if he's either of those ancestries and Jeanette knows, I'd love to see her say that to Howard in a cute, sultry or subtle way-it will make him blush a LOT more than now!πŸ˜‰πŸ€­

Trunks on the ground. Trunks on the ground. Looking like a fool with your trunks on the ground.
Zarpaulus 5th Jun 2021, 11:30 PM
Is that a cameo by Evie?
FreyFox 6th Jun 2021, 10:32 AM
You noticed :)
kennethsarmstrong 8th Jun 2021, 9:50 PM

I would think that Blanco would at least be a little humble after Nick embarrassed him in the karate tournament.

(Grumbling) No, that would be asking too much of Blanco.
Long Tom 9th Jun 2021, 9:55 PM
Long Tom
Nick didn't so much embarrass Blanco as Blanco made a stupid decision that allowed Nick to win so easily.
Long Tom 9th Jun 2021, 9:54 PM
Long Tom
Lucky for Blanco Howard isn't gay anymore.
FreyFox 10th Jun 2021, 9:17 AM
Blanco isn't Howard's type anyway ^^
kennethsarmstrong 10th Jun 2021, 1:34 AM
I forgot to congratulate you on your 775th strip.

I promise to remember your 800th strip.
FreyFox 10th Jun 2021, 9:17 AM
Thank you :)
