Veronica: Lead the way, mysterious stranger!

People might wonder why Paulo has a bandage on his head when he was just smacked in the cheek with the volleyball. Well, the impact of the ground gave him a concussion. Never mind that the ground was sand.

Okay, Paulo fell into broken glass. This is why littering is nooooo good, kids.

We want to email you some comics!

Join the thousands of BCB fans who look forward to an email of cat drama every Monday morning, and we’ll send you a dozen “Ships Ahoy” comic strips, and one every week after that!

We’ll send a link to the comics you missed, straight away.

If I realized I had an army of hooligans following me, I’d floor the gas pedal out of there.

^^, I noticed that all their clothing just vanished into thin air. I’m pretty sure they are still on the beach, but they might be out of the clothed zone. Anywho… lol, somebody is afraid of a little teenage girl!

I LOLed pretty good at that last panel. You can really see the mysterious stranger’s shock, after he realized what he had gotten himself into. :D

So let me get this straight. They need to wear something on the beach, but walking around on the streets naked is good? backwards world. next thing you know david will have a human on a leash asking “CAN I KEEP HIM!!!!”

Final Panel: What is Tess doing with Sue? Lifting her chin up to look into her eyes? No wonder Lucy accused her of being gay. I’m not trying to be mean, but seriously, what IS she doing?

Poor Paulo.

The beach must have been struck by lightning. No, really, lightning strikes can heat up beach sand so drastically that it flash-melts and becomes glass.

I just realized why Tess’s pierced tail seems so strange: she’s got studs going through her lower spine! D:

The funniest part? By the time I finished reading this page and had seen the last panel, I was imagining this song in my head: v=16RCvtziXj0&list=FLW76gZa4r1wEQ15IpseXaYg
Why is this funny? Because it was completely unintentional, yet it perfectly fits if you think about it. XD Well, at least it would seem fitting if you were in the new guy’s situation in the last panel. XD
