Seems as though Lucy’s not interested in re-immersing herself in a PauloxLucy comic part XD.

And of course, Paulo thinks otherwise, and latches himself onto a bus. My biggest wonder as of this point is if Paulo is going to hang on to the back of the bus for the entire ride :P

Comment ID #173100

Oh, Paulo…The first four or five panels are ****ing awesome! XD

Gloating after you saved your friend’s life? Smart, Paulo. Now she’s walking away from you. This is exactly like something you’d see on “F My Life”. What’s interesting is how attached Paulo is to following her and making sure she gets to the hospital alright. But it’s depressing that she would even walk away from him to begin with. Then again, the time wasting is pretty ridiculous and Lucy clearly needs to get the hospital ASAP. :/

PLEASE tell me that Paulo will keep a good grip on the bus and be at the hospital along with Lucy. The very thought of them being separated after a special event like this is almost more than I can bear.

If Paulo loses his grip on the bus and falls, he’ll slide against the road due to the speed from the bus and probably have to go to the hospital himself. So no matter what, both Lucy and Paulo should end up at the hospital together,or at least not too far apart from each other.

How the hell is grabbing onto the back of a bus “badass” in the slightest? If Paulo actually, you know, pulled his head out of his *** he would have seen Lucy heading for the train.

Then again, maybe the bus will drag him to his death… that would be pretty badass

For some reason i get the impression that this chapter is going to be a lot like those old pop-eye cartoons where pop-eye follows the baby/olive oil around to make sure that they doesn’t get into harm; construction sites, busy streets away from manholes, out of traffic. You know, the usual. One of them’s already been fulfilled.

I think his head popped off from sheer panic in the sixth panel.

Side effects of grabing onto a moving bus include but are not limmited to: heart failure, not walking, getting in trouble with law inforcement, dangling, quickness, sudden fearof failing off or loosing your grip, random STD’s

To avoid the above side effects buy powder to dry your hands giving you more grip and wear a condom to avoid STD’s

Thank you for taking note of this

Holy ****. Paulo is a really nice Guy. Didn’t you all see what he did for that driver. He gave him a nice, fresh bird, straight up. And he made it a double!
And normally I’ve been looking at Lucy as a stuck up bitch who is rejecting opportunities at love but also claims that she can’t find love. Now I feel sorry for her because she’s come down with a sickness known as: pwnage, rejection, acceptance, reality, depression, etc. (Side effects of the aforementioned illness above may include, but are not limited to: drowsiness, fatigue, pushing others away, looking like you’re actually sick, getting out of bed, walking into traffic, suicide attempts, and exploding diarrhea. Please consult a doctor if your erec- er… depression/illness lasts for more than 12 hours.)

Why is Paulo floating cross-legged in the first two panels? :/

EDIT: Nevermind; they’re both on the ground in the first panel and Paulo’s still on the ground in the next… I think?

First thing I noticed: Paulo’s head seems to be all there is of him on panel 7…

Looks like he’s going to have quite a ride today, eh?

@Adam Novagen: The hands are just flipped. If you look at it closely, the thumbs (Or what I think are the thumbs.) are facing the wrong way. Or like you said, he is infact using the wrong finger.

Paulo, you idiot. I love the expression on the Bus Driver’s face though. It’s like “What the heck is some sick chick doing on the bus? O.o”. S’funny.

Another name change.

This Story is losing it’s touch
I can see your getting bored with this taeshi
What I do is keep in mind of one of my storys, and continue on until I work up enough boredom to continue it again

Like im doing the story in 2812: Tales of the wastelands

I went on from boredom and am currently working on WW3 (the one that turned the world of 2812 into a waste land, kind of like Fallout)
I still keep in mind where I left off, and sometimes sketch a picture of those charaters, I don’t know when Im going to get that one sketch done of my 7 favorate charaters playing poker.

Do not not continue the story, just come back after a while

Not as long as LONG CAT

Paulo is rather crazy to cling to the back of a bus……..though I laugh at the thoughts running through the heads of people that see him. “Honey a kid is clinging to the back of a bus…” “Just ignore it dear it just that Paulo kid doing something stupid again.” “……Well if you say so dear…..” XD

Getting public transportation for free:
Like a boss

To a lot of people: His thumbs are folded inwards (toward their palms); Paulo is ‘giving the finger’.

To Monkies: Good call. His hands do seem to be on the wrong wrists in Panel 1. Good observation skills. But how’d you notice that?

To Taeshi: Waitaminute!
Panel 2: “Honk a bit louder can’t hear you.” Eh? What? That is incorrect grammar (I think). That seems like he’s saying “My friend, named Honk-A-Bit-Louder, can’t hear you.” It’s a bit nonsensical. You need to add in a comma or a semi-colon or something after ‘louder’.
Panel 3: “Sorry for saving a life *******.” -_- Paulo is addressing the driver, right? You’re slipping on the commas a bit for panels 2 and 3.
Oddly enough, you redeem yourself at Panels 4 and 5.

I wish that I could’ve made my ‘Panel 3’ comment sound… less *****-ish. :unsure:
The ‘Panel 2’ comment might have also seemed harsh :unsure:
I apologize in advance for that.
Maybe even the ‘Panel 4 and 5’ comment seems harsh? ;__;
Again, I’m sorry if they came off sounding that way.

Grammer Nazis: There’s one for every page -_-

Oh Lucy. That’s not how busses work. Do you think you’re taking a very roomy taxi that specializes in multitasking?

At least Paulo can get on at the next stop and set you aright.

on the shown pic, the thumbs are folded in on the inside of both hands, then flipping someone off, the thumbs are on the side, while your pinkys are toward each other. Just stand in front of a mirror and flip yourself off with both hands, youll see that your pinkies are next to each other and your thumbs are the farthest apart, in the panel, his thumbs and index fingers are the close ones.
