This is definitely a case of wanting to try something new with art and panels and writing the script around it, but that's comics for ya.

Happy Thanksgiving from the US! As my offering, here's this month's SpudShot session. We had a lot of fun playing it.

Third Base? What does that mean?

I've got it! She thinks Dashie and Gilda...wanna play softball! Hehehe. Seriously though, I think that is just Pinkie Pie for 'I don't have everything figured out, just those three things which make 'three bases'". She needs them to bring her in for home plate! So who is gonna step up to bat first? The overly concerned yet slightly Aggro griffon who missed her friend? Or the overzealous rainbow barbarian who was careless with her words?

"So who is gonna step up to bat first?"
Yes.
"What's the name of the starting batter?"
What's the name of the of the player batting second.
"I'm not asking who's batting second!"
Who's batting first!
"I don't know."
(Together) "CLEAN-UP!"

It's a reference to an old two-man comedy routine called "Who's on First?" a repeating line is an exchange of "I don't know" replied to with "third base!"
Blueblade 25th Nov 2016, 11:04 PM edit delete reply
So in other words by "Third base" she means "I don't know". Got it.

You need to watch "Who's on First?" It is a cultural necessity. Just look it up on Youtube, you'll find plenty of recordings.

And then you realize the title is Habit and Odd Fellow.

Oh yes, that is one of the great classics of comedy!

The last set of panels were confusing until I realised RD and G are not listening a single word PP is saying.

Still no idea of "third base."

The reference is probably what he was going for, but the implications of the OTHER interpretation are far funnier to me.

Happy Thanksgiving every-
Chrysalis, turkey not griffins.
Aren't they the same thing?

I'm thankful for my family, neighborhood and potential rain.
(Mini drought over here)
Guest 24th Nov 2016, 10:14 AM edit delete reply
Mind potentially sending that rain my way? The drought's not so mini over here.
ANW 24th Nov 2016, 10:36 AM edit delete reply
Now, that I think about it, 3 weeks and to wildfires isn't really a mini is it?
ANW 24th Nov 2016, 10:36 AM edit delete reply
Two, not to.

I'll draw a "rain turtle" for you.
I actually had a guy I worked with believe that I could make it rain by drawing a turtle in the dirt!

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving fellow Americans.
Hope you had a Happy Thursday non-fellow non-Americans.

I am thankful for cats. Lots of other things too, but... One of my cats was particularly nice and tolerant to my toddler niece, and another is cuddling with me...So they are what comes to mind now.

I'm tempted to make some comment about the appropriateness of a comic set in Griffonstone during Thanksgiving, but that seems tasteless.
...
I'll have to add gravy.

You, sir, are a twisted genius.

Well, it already comes with Spuds, so... just need the stuffing. ;)

The fact some of you whippersnappers don't know "Third Base" makes me sad -- and old.
DoubleXXCross 25th Nov 2016, 12:38 AM edit delete reply
I did know about Who's on First, but not well enough to recognise that "THIRD BASE" was actually a reference and not a non sequitur. I don't know if that's entirely just my fault, but it feels like the conversation doesn't go on long enough or have much similarity to Who's on First.

Pinky & Brain do Who's on First.

"Who's on First" never gets old.

No Pinkie, Why's the left fielder, not third base. Serious, kids these days. No sense of culture.
ANW 24th Nov 2016, 11:58 AM edit delete reply
Why is the catcher
Noone is the left fielder
referee 24th Nov 2016, 12:35 PM edit delete reply
No, he's right. Why is the left fielder. The catcher is today.
ANW 24th Nov 2016, 6:35 PM edit delete reply
Oh, that's right
Noone is the umpire

"What about the pitcher's name?"
"Tomorrow."
"What time?"
"What time what?"
"What time tomorrow you gonna tell me who's pitching?"
"Now listen..."
"I'LL BREAK YOUR ARM IF YOU SAY WHO'S ON FIRST!"
Not really sure 24th Nov 2016, 10:50 AM edit delete reply
Not really sure the order of the dialogues with too many in the middle.
Guest 24th Nov 2016, 11:14 AM edit delete reply
Go by the top of the speech bubbles,
If you still have trouble it's
Dash>Gil>Pinkie>Gil>Dash>Pinkie>Dash>Gil>Pinkie>dash and gil>Pinkie from top to bottom.
referee 24th Nov 2016, 12:36 PM edit delete reply
Correct. Took me a while, but that's the right way to do it.

*Reading comic*

Me: Wow, crazy-eyed Pinkie is sort of terrifying, and yet somehow funny.

*Reading comic*

Pinkie: "THIRD BASE!"

Me: ... Ha. I remember that one. Either way it's funny, but at least Abbot and Costello made it appropriate. ... I thank high school and college not making me ignorant to this one.
Luminous Lead 24th Nov 2016, 1:21 PM edit delete reply
Nice panel work there Spud. =D Pinkie's directly inserted herself into the dialogue area while still pulling the separate character panels together.
Digo 24th Nov 2016, 1:29 PM edit delete reply
Yeah I like this little experiment. Seems to work out pretty well.
Peppermint Sprint 27th Nov 2016, 6:02 PM edit delete reply
The bottom section is incredibly confusing. The separate panels imply one thing, the dialogue implies another and the heights of the bubbles something else. With how nonsensical the dialogue is already, had to re-read a few times...
