They can go to the special stage with that
yo September 18, 2013, 1:00 PM EST.
Oh, it is art.
I knew there would be a 007 moment.
Hawz September 18, 2013, 1:01 PM EST.
Too perfect! <3

Are you sure about the special stage? Are there enough rings?!
see what I did there?
kaminari683 September 18, 2013, 1:03 PM EST.
Why can I see the art work ending up rolling off somewhere
Chrisd765 September 18, 2013, 1:10 PM EST.
I don’t know about you guys, but I was expecting a hole in the wall. I really, really was.

Do you expect my to talk.
TheGentleman September 18, 2013, 1:23 PM EST.
@ Lost_Cookie it is still just a hole in all its hollie good ness
Blue fox September 18, 2013, 1:23 PM EST.
@ TheGentleman no mr Paulo I expect you to write this essay. HAHAHA
Blue fox September 18, 2013, 1:24 PM EST.
Did Paulo get taller or is David bending over?
Perhaps David is farther away from the viewer? (Us that is)

They abound to no ends. So much are the lols that I have been stunned into a momentary state where I cannot even make exclamations.
Maybe they should write an essay on how that particular piece of art makes them feel like secret agents.
Also, Paulo’s face on the last panel is priceless. Nothing like the green, clueless, but often innovative and lucky agent. Comedy/Action?
Blank On Purpose September 18, 2013, 1:45 PM EST.
@5Cats: So many circles…
I’m in an art class, how ironic.
In panels 5, David seems like he’s looking at himself in a mirror.
Hawz September 18, 2013, 1:45 PM EST.
It’s a tire. It’s an olive. Oh, it’s a portal. *face-palms*
I wanna go to that special stage!
Hawz September 18, 2013, 1:46 PM EST.
David and his shenanigans.
Keyblade Dragon September 18, 2013, 2:04 PM EST.
David has a gift
Wafflesftw September 18, 2013, 2:17 PM EST.
Sanchan September 18, 2013, 2:30 PM EST.
The piece of artwork allows you to see punctuation about a persons state of mind, floating around their head…. Or it’s just a circle
Misanthrope September 18, 2013, 2:30 PM EST.
James Bond ref! Lol!
Jayden September 18, 2013, 2:41 PM EST.
I love the way Paulo hesitantly goes along with it.
Laufente September 18, 2013, 3:18 PM EST.
I wonder where that portal leads to
KiraDood5 September 18, 2013, 3:26 PM EST.
xD Wow! It’s been awhile since this comic has made me actually laugh aloud. Good job Taeshi!
Stevum September 18, 2013, 3:38 PM EST.
Paulo, james Paulo. I’m so gla i have a job now that keeps me busy. Now When i have time i just read 6 pages. I hated waiting
JustSomeCritic September 18, 2013, 3:41 PM EST.
Ah, David. If only his funny levels were turned into food, there would be no hunger
Sono September 18, 2013, 3:56 PM EST.
That would require him to be funny in the first place, and not a annoying idiot with no sense of when it’s proper to crack a joke and when it’s not.
Front September 18, 2013, 4:27 PM EST.
And then they’re both expelled because Zero Tolerance.

Is it just me… or is the room spinning. I keep bumping into walls and I just landed on this Gem of sorts… what’s going on?

I hope it has something to do with McCain and sue

007….I smell upcoming artwork!
Mcturtle September 18, 2013, 6:23 PM EST.
And now, Paulo as Agent 007, in such movies as:
From Roseville With Love
You Only Live Nine Times
The Man With The Blue Scarf
The Dog Who Loved Me
The Essay Is Not Enough
Write Another Day
Oceanus92 September 18, 2013, 6:29 PM EST.
David understands the important things in life. I think everyone needs a little more David.
Lumi September 18, 2013, 6:45 PM EST.
David, you’re childish, immature, and your intelligence is lacking.
… Your the kind of person people need to be friends with, to make their life more interesting and fun.
Xeneus September 18, 2013, 7:19 PM EST.
, you are aware that if is 007, that means you’re DEAD, right?
: Pshwhoo! Pshwhoo!
: Lazer gun…Lincoln next… *dies*
That statue in panel 3 is creepy, it looks like .
Panel 1 made me think, “Paulo-Ninja!”
Taeshi indirectly reminded me of Cardcaptor- .
There sure is tons of creative comments lately, all thanks to 007 and modern art!
I’ve always liked donuts.
@Oceanus92: THAT’S AMAZING! I WANT THEM ALL!
On a slightly related note, what would the theme song change to? What would ADELE be in the BCB world? Why am I asking YOU these questions?
Hawz September 18, 2013, 7:32 PM EST.
They must’ve collected enough rings in order to see that
Chocothunda September 18, 2013, 7:36 PM EST.
Well, but this is only a simple geometry.
HongKat September 18, 2013, 7:39 PM EST.
@Hawz: The songs would probably all stay the same. Just maybe with Lucy singing the songs with lyrics. After all… Paulo Bond.
And you are asking me these questions because I CAN ANSWER THEM. *puts on shades, arm fold*
Oceanus92 September 18, 2013, 7:39 PM EST.
@Oceanus92: I’m not impressed. *puts 3-d glasses on with background explosion, and Gangnam Style playing* NERD BOND
Hawz September 18, 2013, 7:47 PM EST.
@Hawz: *quick-draws and simply shoots you in the chest*
I never get the chance to impress anyone.
*shades upon shades*
They don’t last long enough.
Oceanus92 September 18, 2013, 8:04 PM EST.
@Oceanus92: *simply shoots you between the eyes, above the glasses, and disappears into the shadows * You’re killed instantly.
Bulletproof vests work best when your opponents don’t know you have one.
Still not impressed.
Hawz September 18, 2013, 8:21 PM EST.
Although…wait. I made a stupid mistake when I knew the whole time I should have just shot you in the head…I wasted my time with stupid, unnecessary dramatics…and then I GLOATED…
OH GOD I’M A BOND VILLAIN.
Oceanus92 September 18, 2013, 8:30 PM EST.
@Oceanus92: Well played either way.
Hawz September 18, 2013, 8:35 PM EST.
My name’s Bond, Hawz Bond.
Hawz September 18, 2013, 8:39 PM EST.
@ Hawz That sounds like the miss pronounciation if Husband.
GLaDOS September 18, 2013, 8:45 PM EST.
*Hits Hawz with a shovel on the head*
There, now you’re Bond, Dead Bond.
GLaDOS September 18, 2013, 8:48 PM EST.
@GLaDOS: pfffffft *laughs self silent*
Hawz September 18, 2013, 8:50 PM EST.
*Nerd gadgets avenge*
I can’t think of anything else to say…In the words of Taeshi…
END NOW! THIS IS GOING NOWHERE!
Hawz September 18, 2013, 8:56 PM EST.
That was awesome!
Hawz September 18, 2013, 8:59 PM EST.
Davy uses bond reference…. Its supper efective
unoppo September 18, 2013, 9:23 PM EST.
Is it just me or does paulo seem to be a little bit more of a jerk than usual???
Zacharie September 18, 2013, 9:42 PM EST.
Oh David, you are hilarious as always
Grant September 18, 2013, 9:46 PM EST.
I can’t help but smile at this
Shadow September 18, 2013, 9:53 PM EST.
I can’t find it but i remember seeing a video making fun of the bond scene with a fat guy who kept getting shot.
Just a Fan September 18, 2013, 11:04 PM EST.
Finally, a hornier spy then James Bond

Feliene September 19, 2013, 1:56 AM EST.
1st of all must say last panel is pretty cool
2nd this is my first comment
3rd does anyone know when Lucy will appear again she is one of my favorite characters as far as females other than jasmine
4th I just realized that Lucy is born in early November making her a Scorpio (horoscope) which explains why we act quite alike quite weird really even down to blue eyes and me having extremely blonde hair if it got lighter it would be white but just thought that was cool
The one and only me September 19, 2013, 2:02 AM EST.
As dumb as those two are, you gotta admit they deserve an A+ for that one right there. lol.
starfighter105 September 19, 2013, 2:11 AM EST.
I guess most of us were wrong. I said most cuz there couldve been a few smarty pants’ that knew the answer
ShizuTheKhaoManee September 19, 2013, 2:25 AM EST.

James bond moment jeje
eagle September 19, 2013, 9:12 AM EST.
There are hardly any serious comments on this page. Finally, everyone relaxed.
Hawz September 19, 2013, 10:14 AM EST.
Do you expect me to talk David?
No, Paulo. I expect you to die.
Seoq September 19, 2013, 10:30 AM EST.
@just a fan,
I know the scene you’re thinking about, but it wasn’t a fat guy. It was from American Dad, Stan tries to do the James Bond intro for the Tearjerker episode. He ends up getting shot because he didn’t realize the spiralling circle is supposed to be the barrel of a gun.
If it helps i’ll site the line from the scene:
Stan (after getting shot): AH, what the hell! Wait you’re a gun, I always thought you were like an eye ball or something
buchanen_neket September 19, 2013, 10:45 AM EST.
Lol, James Bond Reference!
Michelle September 19, 2013, 11:51 AM EST.
DAT 007 REFERENCE~!
Candycorn Lover September 20, 2013, 5:09 PM EST.
bad bad paoulo not getting the 007 reference
DrackeStalenTorgen September 23, 2013, 4:24 PM EST.
Hehe, that one was actually funny coming from david.
Otter guy September 30, 2013, 1:19 PM EST.
David’s sense of humour is excellent.
TheClosetFurfag October 26, 2013, 7:56 AM EST.
I think it’s really interesting how @Taeshi uses a gallery as the setting here, and I think we can learn a lot about the characters by interpreting the art.
First some background. Many pieces of art feature a “focal point” which draws your attention, and often times it is the most important part of a piece. In the case of the donut, the focal point is the hole in the middle. There’s nothing there! You get to define your own focal point. Depending on where you’re standing (your perspective), what you see through the hole in the donut might be something different. The donut represents your ability to define your own focal point (in life perhaps), and the pedestal tells us this idea is worth glorifying.
David instantly gets the piece. He places Paulo at the focal point of his perspective and tells him to strike a James Bond pose. (Kinda sweet huh?) David’s focal point is friendships and his desire to have fun.
Paulo doesn’t get it though. I imagine him staring at the wall through the donut and thinking, “What’s the point?” All he sees is the hole. Paulo’s focal point is this void inside himself; the way that he’s never satisfied. Mostly he tries to fill the void with different girls, but it always ends in futility. Whether it’s Jasmine or Tess or Daisy or Lucy, it always falls apart because he’s not satisfied. Furthermore, it easy to see why he likes Lucy so much. Like everyone else, he has put Lucy on this pedestal (like the donut) and decided that if he can attain her, the unattainable perfect girl, then he will truly be happy.
He’s got a lot of character development to do.
