Veronica: Daisy has a little bit of a crush, it seems. And Lucy knows her karate, it seems.

I think I remember something like this from the original archives.

Wasn’t there this whole “Hi, I’m Daisy” gag?

“Hi, I’m Daisy”? Isn’t that ‘Housepets!’?

After reading the entire-to-date series, I just established that I’m imagining Lucy with the voice of Asuka from Neon Genesis Evangelion. Hmm. I’m entertained.

I have decided to honor this comic. BY DRAWING IT! No, I would NEVER steal ownership of something this awesome! Think of it as a commercial, I draw, show friends, tell them to go to this site and read! I’m starting in 8th grade after summer, so it was great I found this.I draw and show those who don’t have possibility to watch it on the PC. YAY FOR BITTERSWEET CANDY BOWL

I know it’s really really late but, I’m half deaf and I can hear both ways. It just means the side with the deaf ear doesn’t get picked up easily

Mario Kart’s the source, but BCB and Housepets have someone named Daisy. It’s great.

That’s a nice spinning back heel kick.

My previous comment gave the wrong idea.
I love her kicks, not her.

But I AM a sucker for martial artists.
And qwerty is right, Mike sucks at math, and Daisy tutored Tess.

“Where the Maths Things Are” just doesn’t seem legit. XD

I’m using my TV screen when I read these, and whenever you do comics in this style, the background of the comic gets all rainbowy.
