#80 - Bear


That is what we call a misdirect.

It is also what I call a horrible comic (and just when I was almost proud of Octopuns).

    1. Bear Paws would have been funnier, especially since it wouldn't require the auxiliary character.

  4. It's so bad that I laughed much.

  5. Bear paws? Not necessarily a misdirect, sir. Thought it was just a double pun.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Better than the last comic.

  7. I thought it was going to be a Scottish guy in a kilt sitting on a rock :)

  20. I thought it was supposed to be 'Why the long pause?'

    ReplyDelete
  21. And that pause isn't large or long or anything. It's tiny.

    ReplyDelete
  22. ahahahah hilarious!

    sorry to be THAT guy, but please check my comic blog

    ReplyDelete
  23. I LOVE THIS SITE, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU WRITE IN ALL CAPS. IT CRACKS ME UP. You're so funny!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  28. you really dropped the ball on this one

    ReplyDelete
  29. If there is no comic soon... I will have no choice but to create Cephalopuns. Sure, the name isn't as catchy, but at least it will include cuttlefish... and who can resist cuttlefish? Then your monopoly on invertebrate cartoon puns will be over!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Idea for new comic: Stair Roids, Steroids for stairs. Hemmer Roids, Steroids for a hemming octopus.

  31. WHERE ARE THE COMICS?! I DEMAND YOU PROVIDE ME WITH MORE FREE, ENTERTAINING CONTENT OR I WILL TAKE MY ENTITLED ARSE SOMEWHERE ELSE ON THE INTERNET!*

    *MY CAPS HAVE BEEN LOCKED SINCE JULY 1998

    ReplyDelete
  32. UPDATE IN THE NEXT 72 HOURS OR YOU WILL FEEL MY WRATH!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. It's been 2 weeks -sob- Where's the new comic!? You make me sad.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Where's our update? D'= Don't make me draw my own guest comic! I'm an aerospace engineer, all I know how to draw are physics equations, so it will be guaranteed to be bad! You've leaving me with no other option!

    ReplyDelete
  35. UPDATE. JUST DO IT.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Dear Octopuns,

    Did your inspiration for this joke actually come from a South Park episode? Just wondering ;)

    ReplyDelete
  37. UPDATE!!!!! YOUR KILLING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. O_o Just write another one, its not hard, if not use a guest strip, even if its a fan strip...or a fan stripping....Or a comic of an octopus who is a fan of the comic, stripping its clothes off.

    ANYTHING IS FINE, it doesn't need to be good. GArfield has at best a 10% funny rate, You can so better without trying!

    ReplyDelete
  39. So, Mr Octopuns. I see you haven't updated in a good while.



    Why with the large pause?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm begging you, update :'(

    ReplyDelete
  41. YOU THINK YOU'RE FUNNY ?

    POST A GOD DAMN COMIC ALREADY


    Please :(

    ReplyDelete
  42. A man walks into a bar, spends the next five hours drinking, wanting to die. He goes home to his wife and kids, and beats them until his fist is bloody and torn. He is the only one left alive.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your lack of comics is bad and you should feel bad!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am on the verge of killing you it has been the same comic you even said ill try to update more often FOR GOD SAKE UPDATE THE FREAKING COMIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Mr. Octopuns, I wouldn't like to do this, but if that's what it takes......






























    UPDATE OR I SHOOT/STAB/GROTESQUELY MURDER YOU!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. GUYS. I GET THAT YOU LIKE COMICS AND I GET THAT I APPARENTLY HAVE A DUTY TO DELIVER COMICS AND I GET THAT YOU GET ANGRY WHEN I DON'T DELIVER COMICS.

    BUT UNFORTUNATELY I HAVE SOME OTHER THINGS TO DO THAT DON'T INVOLVE COMICS AND ARE SLIGHTLY MORE IMPORTANT. I GET THAT YOU HATE ME FOR THAT AND I UNDERSTAND IF YOU LEAVE AND NEVER CHECK MY BLOG AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS THAT I AM A HORRIBLE PERSON. THAT IS FINE.

    I AM SORRY THAT I HAVEN'T UPDATED IN A WHILE AND I DO FEEL BAD AND I AM SORRY TO ALL MY FANS. I AM A HORRIBLE PERSON AND I HAVE FAILED YOU ALL.

    WHAT YOU ALSO MUST UNDERSTAND IS THAT ONE DAY I WILL DIE. AND NO AMOUNT OF YELLING IN THE COMMENTS SECTION WILL BRING ME BACK TO MAKE COMICS. I AM JUST TRYING TO PREPARE YOU FOR THAT DAY BY ALLOWING YOU TO FEEL LOSS IN SMALL EASILY DIGESTIBLE DOSES.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Also, I apologise for saying that I will try to update more often because obviously I failed that and shouldn't have got your hopes up.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I prefer this ending: Well, cause i work out, and my paws are large.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Are you sure? I think if we petition the skyman enough, he'll bring you back <3 Or at least let us get updates from beyyyooonnndddddd. Also apparently I suck at making fan comics, but I continue try, yes?!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hey guys....Umm....Please don't post death threats...those are serious...Raped in prison serious. ..

    ReplyDelete
  51. That is the cutest bear ever.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I think you may have left caps on...

    ReplyDelete
  53. At least try to make it to 100 before you finish.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I feel the need to calm Octopuns-maker guy, because he was totally yelling at us via comment. It's okay; we can wait. Take your time.
    I will be right here waiting for you. (Creepily)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I HATE YOU !

    I love you :(

    Please come back :'(

    ReplyDelete
  56. :( Doctor said that my 3 year old sons' caner will come back unless there is an 'Octopuns' comic update this week. Please don't kill my son by not uploading a comic...We need you, everyone does.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I don't think your doctor is a real doctor.

    ReplyDelete
  58. What? Still no update!?


    :'(

    ReplyDelete
  59. This comic isn't new, there must be a problem in the Octopuns studio. I hate how people jump to conclusions that Mr. Octopun is an evil man for not making comics. Maybe his cat ran away and he's really sad, or maybe he ran out of funds to continue making comics.

    ReplyDelete
  60. haahaha Octopuns getting all frustrated of all these super fans demanding for new updates.

    yeah we all know that u've more important things to do in your life but we've no more sunshine in our life.

    its alright octopuns

    update new comic or die

    ReplyDelete
  61. mr pause coming out of nowhere.

    ReplyDelete
  62. a friend of mine gave me this link about a month ago he said if you are bored this will help. so i started at comic one and read them all.
    i laughed and i laughed.

    And since then i come here everyday hoping for a new octupun. And i will keep on comming back till there will be more puns

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hey Mr. Octopuns,
    i still have you in my linklist (i check about 20 comic blogs each day). it's no problem for me to wait. just arrange your things, load up your creativity and come back if you feel like coming back. i'm that nice kind of a fan, ya know?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Thanks for all the comics. I miss you Octopun.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Dear Mr Octopuns,
    I do believe we have waited long enough for an update, I'm going to Cyanide and Happiness. At least they can keep up with commitments.

  66. I think it's really funny that he asked "why the large pause?" and then you stopped making comics for ages. That is all.

    ReplyDelete
  67. How long is soon? HMM?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Huh. So I miss reading your comics. But I don't want you to die. Seems a bit harsh really. Hope you'll be back soon!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Me thinks he dead.

    ReplyDelete
  70. make us a new comic!! we're dying here

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'm not frustrated with you dudes. YOU ARE JUST MAKING ME FEEL BAD. ESPECIALLY THOSE OF YOU THAT KEEP SAYING YOU ARE GOING TO KEEP CHECKING FOR UPDATES.

    The plan was for everyone to abandon me and call me names so I learned that there were consequences to my actions. NOW I WILL LEARN NOTHING.

    Exams finish next week so then I'll either have to update or make up a new excuse.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love your comics! Especially the large racket one! And the one with the boos :) I can't wait until your exams are over :(

    ReplyDelete
  73. You have a dedicated fanbase in a demographic with disposable income, Octopuns t-shirts would sell...

    (I check in daily)

    ReplyDelete
  74. i check daily for updates. and everyday i'm disappointed and sad.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Question:
    What is your favourite Pokemon?

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hey Octopuns i think the reason all of us keep checking is because you kinda ended the comic abruptly and that (at least for me) need closure i think that you should at least make comics till 90 and then make a final comic saying that you ending. PS I will continue to look for updates and i hope you do continue the comic

    ReplyDelete
  77. It's next week....

    ReplyDelete
  78. Now can we have more octopuns? :D

    ReplyDelete
  79. I hope you did well on your exams and will post some more of your amazing comics soon! <3
