There is nothing nicer

There is nothing nicer

... than the texture of a new buzz cut.  John is the only person I know who gets his hair cut that short, so he's the only one I harass about these things.

OH, while I'm here, two things.  First, there is only one day left until the score on my Threadless design finishes.  So give it a score if you feel inclined to.

Also, it should be mentioned that we are both going to be guests at Connecticon in Hartford, CT from July 31st to August 2nd.  The con is always real nice to us, hopefully we will see some of you there!

You are so cuuuuute Yuko.
If I could I would snuggle you to death.

I see a D8 by Yuko coming up... That, or 8D, presuming she likes being snuggled to death xD

I love doing that

Too bad I never get buzz cuts nowadays.

Comment by eli (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 02:21

... I'm really curious about the height difference between Yuko and John.

John is the Tallest

Comment by George Rohac (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 10:05

Nope, that's pretty accurate, John is a veritable giant.

Also, Connecticon? Really? I heard the guy who works with the webcomics people there is a big dumb jerkhead? Isn't that true?

He can be, but normally he

Comment by demonsun (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 12:26

He can be, but normally he is pretty nice. just not when he's stressed to the limit. just like everybody else at cons.
I can get pretty angry pretty fast when its 2 in the monring and i've been working for 2 days straight.

 Webcomics Coordinator George Rohac is a Grade A asshole. I hear he kills artists if they step out of line. 

Seconding the height diff

Comment by Ananth Tue, 03/03/2009 - 11:11

Seconding the height diff ... Yuko (sorry babe!) is not particularly tall, and John ... is particularly tall. 

W... well, yeah.

Comment by Aido Tue, 03/03/2009 - 11:34

I'm barely over 5', and John's 6'BILLION, so it's pretty awkward when we stand next to each other.  Also, I am infamous for exaggerating how short I am.

It helps that I bring around

Comment by John Kelly (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 12:56

It helps that I bring around a box to stand on only when I'm next to Yuko.

Oh man I'd be tempted to

Comment by eli (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 20:00

Oh man I'd be tempted to kick that box.

... I mean.

Um.

It seems you're still taller

Comment by eli (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 19:59

It seems you're still taller than I am, though.

.... orz

YES.

Comment by Forte (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 02:26

I constantly catch myself rubbing the hair above my neck (the only bit short enough to be fuzzy) after a haircut. Is a nice feeling!

Also hi, found Johnny Wander via Yuko's Twitter via her Livejournal via Fallen via Questionable Content archive trawl. I'm probably one of the few who does said trawl and ends up at Fallen, but maybe a link on its front page would yield a few readers? Just a humble suggestion. Great comic, avidly following. :)

My military husband gets a

Comment by Selasphorus (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 02:34

My military husband gets a buzz cut, and I sincerely agree, it is an awesome texture. He actually just got his cut again today and I spend far too much time petting his head. :)

 Ahaha aw.

Comment by Ananth Tue, 03/03/2009 - 11:12

 Ahaha aw.

Like Little Monkeys

Comment by Lawlience (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 13:33

Ahaha~ My dad was in the military until not too long ago and he used to take all the kids out when he went to get his hair cut. It's a strange sight seeing two little girls hanging on a grown man because they want to feel up on his head.

Yes! I do this to

Comment by Karlee (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 02:38

Yes! I do this to *everybody* when they get their hair cut, no matter how long or short (and when they don't get their hair cut, come to think of it). It is mandatory.

Also: <3 your Threadless shirt - I voted 5 :) If it gets printed, I'm totally buying one.

TAX?

Comment by Inujo (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 02:40

Hair cut tax? It was utterly adorable but does it have a meaning?

If you get a haircut, Yuko

Comment by Ananth Tue, 03/03/2009 - 11:13

If you get a haircut, Yuko gets to rub your head (if she wants to). This is the haircut tax, passed on since time immemorial. 

What about when Yuko gets a

Comment by demonsun (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 12:27

What about when Yuko gets a haircut? who gets the haircut tax then?

 I suppose that's me? It's

Comment by Ananth Tue, 03/03/2009 - 12:47

 I suppose that's me? It's just not the same ... a buzz cut has a particular texture to it. 

I totally do this!

Comment by Aeyoqen (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 03:20

I totally do this!

Haha! I know that feeling!

Comment by Maxwellian (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 03:23

Haha! I know that feeling! zilla774 on dA is my buzzcut hairbuddy XD

SO NICE.

How disgustingly adorable :D

Trauma

Comment by Boots (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 08:02

I used to get a buzz cut all the time as a kid. I got a little traumatized tho and I don't cut it that short anymore. Had a ~40 year old friend of my parents randomly walk up behind me at a get-together and start rubbing my hair. She didn't say anything, just rubbed it for a few minutes and then walked away. NEVER AGAIN.

Hahaha, well, maybe it was a

Comment by Ananth Tue, 03/03/2009 - 11:15

Hahaha, well, maybe it was a 40 year old Yuko. XD

No More Buzzcuts

Comment by Joe (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 08:32

This is quite possibly the main reason why I don't get my hair cut that short anymore. It's kinda cute when the first person does it, but it gets a little old when everybody you see wants to pet you every time they see you for the first two weeks after it's chopped.

Haircut Tax? Of all the

Haircut Tax? Of all the weird things discussed on this comic, that might be the strangest.

It is pretty strange. 

Comment by Ananth Tue, 03/03/2009 - 11:15

It is pretty strange. 

 I guess it is just one of

Comment by Aido Tue, 03/03/2009 - 11:35

 I guess it is just one of those things I've taken to saying.  It is like a toll to cross a bridge, except it's John coming back to the apartment and the toll is rubbing his hair.

You aren't that short...

Comment by Jamie (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 09:14

You aren't that short... or... is John really that tall?

*would be short around him, too if that is whats going on here*

One day the Washington

Comment by Ananth Tue, 03/03/2009 - 11:16

One day the Washington Monument was about to fall over but then they called John and he reached over and pushed the top back into place. 

Oh that?

Comment by John Kelly (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 12:50

You really have to stop bringing that up, it was nothing.

I love doing that to my friends with haircuts. Weeeeeeeeee!

That last panel is possibly the cutest thing EVER. It made me happy. ^_^

Oh hey! I registered for CC, hoping to get an AA table. (yes, actually tying to PLAN for this year!)

Eee!

 HEY!  That's awesome, we'll finally get to hang out!  I'm excited! :DD

Comment by MarkyMark (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 11:36

If you replaced Yuko with Yotsuba in this comic, no one would notice anything wrong.

Buzz cuts!

Comment by James Riot (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 12:02

When I was a kid, my mom would always give me a buzz cut. Then, for weeks afterwards, my family would rub my head and say, "Oh, Great Googly..."

Thanks for dragging up THOSE memories with your damned cuteness!

How tall are you Yuko? I ask

Comment by Peach Blossom (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 12:27

How tall are you Yuko? I ask because I have a feeling we're around the same height xD Half my friends are over or just under 6" [They were all fed growth hormones I swear] and the other half are all taller than me by a few inches.
Adorable comic btw <3 You are way to cute!

It's been a long while since

Comment by Aido Tue, 03/03/2009 - 12:50

It's been a long while since I've measured myself, but I'm somewhere just over 5'.  I might just be scraping 5'2", I think?  Or maybe that is wishful thinking.

Haha, thanks! :D

I'm 5'3" when I stand up

Comment by Peach Blossom (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 14:03

I'm 5'3" when I stand up straight but I tend to slouch a lot, so I'm about as tall as you than ;)
Welcome!

Comment by Lion (not verified) Tue, 03/03/2009 - 17:54

I was hoping I'd be taller..

But I'm five foot exactly...

I beat you, I'm only 4'11".
