#399 – phony

Hey wow, we're almost at 400 comics! Can you believe it? I can not. Already there's enough Octopus Pie for an obnoxious coffee table book. I intend to make a whole lot more.

  1. oh my god that mouseover text made it SO WORTH IT

    1. Um, I don't get the mouse over text.

      1. you should try entering the alt-text into your browser 😉

        1. Aww… it still won't work for me… D:

        2. Is this a recurring thing that I have been missing?!

    2. Aaaaaabsolutely. That is perfect.

      Other David: put it in the URL line.

      1. I don't get how to do the thing, where does the address– YAAAAA!

        OK yeah, perfect.

      But now we'll never know

  2. When I read there was an alt last panel, I knew exactly what it was going to be.

  3. Holy pie! It is, indeed, close to the 400th! I had no idea there were that much! D=

    Also, I read this and remember Catcher in the Rye. Can't help it. =/

  4. Hanna is to Eve as…

    Larry is to ….

    a. Will.

    Octopus Pie SAT would definitely have this question.

  5. I knew it~! Me an Larry are the same guy. Though the complicated nuances of the show Larry puts on probably will never be touch on (mainly because they don't exist BUT THEIR THERE IN MY MIND DAMN IT!)

    I love this story, btw >w>

  6. Coming this Holiday Season, Octopus PIe: The Obnoxious Coffee Table Book.

    Congrats on gettin' close to 400 😀

  7. Love it. The rollover text is a great touch. Would love to see more of that.

  8. larry x will 4eva <3

  9. i think i knew larry once. if will's not careful, one life-altering comment could bring larry down like a hastily-built scaffolding.

  10. Oh… oh my. Their love is so phony.

  11. That rollover text was priceless. Absolutely. Friggin. Priceless.

  12. Just got the thing to work. Best alternate ending. Of all time. At least until the next one.

    1. @MrJM: thanks for the link. don't know why that wasn't clicking in my brain

  13. Wait. I still don't know how to get to this secret comic you're all talking about…

  14. It's, uh, it's suddenly very warm in here

    *loosens collar*

  15. I am so happy you plan to write many more!
    It was nice meeting you at SDCC. 😀

  16. Alt last panel.


    I don't think Larry is that bad of a guy. He's just trying to get by, and he obviously cares about Will. He never intentionally tried to misguide Will.

  17. The alt ending slides into place surprisingly well.

  18. Is it bad that that alternate ending was actually where I thought this was going?

  19. So yeah. Larry is a bro in the best sense of the word. Doesn't think too hard and just enjoys life.

    Fie on all you who doubted his character!

  20. Larry is deeply shallow. I can’t say that’s a bad thing.

  21. hehe… alt text

  22. PIEEE!!!! <3

  23. I know this was a billion years ago, but I can't open a page with the alt panel URL. Can someone describe what the joke was?

  24. I'm stupidly similar to Will even down to having a french last name, appearance, lifestyle, everything

  25. Um, 361 weeks later… the alt text address doesn't work anymore. Please can someone update me on where to find it? Argghh…

    1. Here's the alt last panel, as archived by Wayback Machine: https://web.archive.org/web/20120507105913if_/htt

  26. Took some finagling but I got the alt last panel- https://web.archive.org/web/20120505022119/http://www.octopuspie.com/alt-last-panel.png
    Definitely worth it. Wish I could see mouseover text though.. hope I’m not missing too much by not being able to see it!
