Down The Stairs
  • deains

    I always have this problem with my Minecraft houses.

    • Green bot Studios

      Oh man, I miss Minecraft so much… I’m not allowed to play it because reasons. Why can’t the “Block Craft 3D” app be actually good?

  • The first two panels should've been extended to six panels. Yes.
    What's in the box? A sacrificial lamb?

      A goat, but you were close.

    When I had a dog, he played the role of the lava pit, not the box. He always sat at the bottom of the stairs because that's where the heater is.

      And stepping on dogs is wrong and wrongness is bad.

    Most days the extra panel just adds a little kick to the punchline, but today it was integral to absolving my consternation. At first I wasn't sure if stick-Justin had nearly stepped into a volcanic crater of boiling lava, or into a comedically huge wooden bowl of tomato bisque…

    Side note: I share this problem. If I've been taking the stairs without looking, then come to realize it, I'll suddenly start to judge my subconscious' ability to regulate my gait in accordance with the iteration of stair placement. Of course, my subconscious has brought this scrutiny upon itself for the numerous times it's general lack of attention has let my toes catch the stair's edge on the way up, leading me to face-plant forcefully over the span of a half-dozen stair edges…

    Why do we even have that lever?

    • Oraticus

      Ha, ha… thumbs up for the reference. "Pull the lever, Kronk!"

    Wait, so you have a staircase which leads to a cauldron of boiling lava that you walk down blindly with your dog in your arms several times a day?
    You just somehow got even more awesome!

    • i live in a really weird apartment building.

        You might wanna check if Ivo Shandor had a hand in designing your building.

    I hate it when I accidently go to the lava pit instead of the kitchen! totaly ruins my day

    Panel Five happens to me ALL THE TIME!

      It happens to me when I go upstairs.

    This is why I refuse to enter places that don't have escalators.

    There's a Justin who walks
    But his confidence drops
    'Cause he's walking a stairway to He-ell.

  • That's why I count when I walk down, just in case I become overly conscious and mess up. I know the exact number of steps in my house. 🙂

  • that person

    i just noticed. the stair cases don’t work. unless the staircase is super long (in which case our hero would have noticed the length problem), then either the lava pit would make the street soft and melt it, or the lava pit is too wide considering the doors’ width apart. they would bump into each other. sorry, my OCD just kicked in a little bit there.

    Who even makes staircases that lead to lava pits?
