      Who has the popcorn and I brought my special brownies

      • Deplorable B Woodman

        Alice B Toklas brownies?

        • Pamela

          Not that type of special. I add dark chocolate, roasted cacao nibs and dried chilies to my brownies. Plus my homemade vanilla.

  • Merle

    That’ll break the elbow ! πŸ™‚

    • MasterDiver

      I find that broken ulna rather humerus!

      Zar Belk!

  • formwiz

    Hyperextend it, anyway.

  • Swansonic

    Doing a karate school yell? Is she trying to make Naomi giggle?

    • Ozymandius

      So far, I think all she has succeeded in doing is to piss-off Naomi.

    • Psychlone Ranger

      Given that her name is Quan, I’m going to presume that it’s Tae-kwon-do,
      But, yeah, against Krav-maga, she’s seriously out-classed.
      I’m assuming the next move is a hair grab and leg sweep that will flip her violently onto her back for the coup-de-grace.

      And I think I’ve just used my quota if hyphens for the next week!!

  • Pete231

    Nice parry ! Tit for tat !

    • WayneM

      I see what you did there!

  • James Gemind

    Krav Maga vs …Tai Chi Do?

    Fuggit. Break out the song ‘Kung Fu Fighting… πŸ™‚

    • GWB

      Since it’s a cartoon, is it Krav Manga?

      • Arkelk

        I like it.

      • Anime b, oops, I mean and ah maybe

  • KenH

    Jello??
    No no no
    Break every bone in her fucking body

    • Unca Walt

      Jeez, KenH, whatcha got agin wimmin???

      • Sam

        That’s just Ken H. I’ve noticed over the last several months that he usually calls for the death of whomever. Originally Skye, but he spreads it around.

        • WayneM

          He is a bloodthirsty one, no doubt…

  • Lifeofthe Mind

    I have not done anything that deserves getting arrested but if she is interested then I might be willing to meet a bad influence. Please Chris don’t introduce a character that is playing for the other team.

  • Do the women in this strip not have enough money to buy properly-fitting clothes that won’t tear at the slightest provocation?

    • Psychlone Ranger

      Gawd I hope not!!

    • Interventor

      Hopefully, not!

    • Not if I have anything to say about it.heh.

      • GruntGI

        And your loyal readers appreciate that, to be sure.

      • MAJ Arkay

        As long as you occasionally bring back Zed as King Leonidas, I’m happy…

      • azscram

        I’m thinking that the fight isn’t over until the agent’s shirt is torn at least as much as Naomi’s dress, preferably more. She may be the enemy, but she’s still hot.

    • JTC

      Tear-away arm on Quan? Meh.

      But based on frame two I sure hope her pants are.

      Krav-Manga. Heh.

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    I expect to see others attempting to break up this fray tomorrow. Good luck with that. The best the bystanders will be able to do is dodge the incoming and pick up the body parts while they’re still dialing 9-1-1.

  • JSStryker

    Break off that arm Naomi and beat her senseless with it, then shove it up her a$$!

  • cz93x62

    Hmmmm–hyper-extend that elbow, or face-plant the Pilgrim onto the floor?

    • skippytheterrible

      Embrace the power of ‘and’!

  • WayneM

    Not to be a continuity nag (much) but Quan’s failed attempt at a punch was with her left hand yet somehow Naomi has trapped Quan’s right arm… And Quan’s holster & badge seem to have vanished…

    • PaulS

      Cartoon majik, or maybe we’re watching in a mirror.
      Kind of like gun magazines showing left handed bolts on rifles that were never produced that way.
      We deal.

  • lurking

    Appears Quan is just moments away from a faceplant. Naomi’s legs appear to be positioned in preventing a step forward. If so, hello floor.

  • Ryk E Lee

    Anime Font, Cool.

  • Too Tall

    Krav Maga means Inspector Quan has two compound fractures of her right arm. She will be fortunate if neither of them is an open compound fracture.

    Absent immediate and world-class orthopedic care, including a couple of surgeries for pins, rods, and other hardware, as well as to clean out the bone fragments, she will end up with a right arm that is significantly shorter than her left.

    Regardless, muscle atrophy, loss of range of movement, and impaired fine motor skills are all but a given.

    As Naomi’s strike also displaced the shattered ends of the bones across each other, causing trauma to the nerves in the area of the fractures, Inspector Quan is now on the ground, entering a state of shock, and trying to remember how to breathe.

    • Subotai Bahadur

      You say that like it is a bad thing. πŸ˜‰

      • Jay B.

        Made me snort mah coffee!

    • PaulS

      β€œopen compound fracture.”

      • Unca Walt

        (*snork*) That goes right along with THE hoi-polloi, Mount Fujiyama, the GOP party, and Rio Grande River.

        • Norm

          VIN number and ATM machine?

  • Bren

    What I’m seeing is that Quan threw the punch she had loaded the other day when feeding Naomi the elbow. Naomi slipped it, and as the followup (throw one as you load the other is the way I learned it) came in, Naomi applied a joint lock rather than a strike.

    At this point, barring Quan being double-jointed (which is a terrible surprise when you think you’ve just applied a compliance generating hold) we should see a take down momentarily. Although, with Chris’ history, it may take a week or more.

    Once on the floor, though, it all depends on what exact discipline Quan has studied.

  • an elbow to the face means you lose the use of the elbow. and I bet you there is serious backup coming to put ms.fibbie down as hard as she wants to make it.

    want to really embarrass her? take her badge and credentials and lose them. Hoover wanted to cancel the death benefits for any FBI that lost their badge or ID, even if they died in the line of duty. and it’s still a major black mark even today.

    she’ll still be breathing when all this is done but it will be an excuse to roll in with armor next time. feds don’t like to lose, and they have unlimited time and money to throw at even minor problems.

    • NotYetInACamp

      So. Will AG Sessions fire that Deputy Director without benefits by / before Friday that has taken vacation until when he can take retirement?

      • Jay B.

        NYIAC – Out on the “proverbial limb,” I say he has the OPR backup and the Tillerson/CIA kerfuffle as a distractiion ….. so Mr. Magoo does The Apprentice thingy and cans McCabe!!! p.s. Any Charles (San Francisco Chronicle)
        McCabe fans in here?

  • Arkelk

    What happened to Naomi’s pistol?

  • Tagg

    Okay. It’s a cat fight. Clothes always fly apart in a cat fight. Who cares what fighting style each employs? Two beautiful, large breasted women are about to rip each other’s clothes off. Does anything else really matter here? Back up! Give them room!

    ((chuckles)) Dojo karate vs Krav Maga. I know where MY money is and I say that as someone who spent WAY too much time in karate dojos.

    • Swansonic

      Sho-Nuff!

  • Andy F.

    That move won’t break the elbow or dislocate it unless you want it to. If she was trained by Gabi Noah (and she seems the appropriate age) then what she’ll do next may look like the move from 1:42-1:54 of this video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-aB8DXTsCU
    The move requires a bit of practice but when executed properly leaves the aggressor unharmed. Once you have the arm up and your knees on the ribcage, all you have to do is lean forward and the aggressor feels an intense amount of pain radiating through their deltoid and shoulder joint (don’t ask how I know). This move is taught primarily to Law Enforcement for submission and retention. Note how the backup man scans the area with weapon drawn covering his partner. In this comic scenario, Naomi can have someone toss her the agents own cuffs to restrain her. I’m sure backup will arrive about the time Naomi has the agent face down with her arm stretched. Not like she didn’t ask for it.

    My 2 cents is that Zed has the guns and they squared off. Quan, in the invincibility of the FBI mind narrative has her as the master of all she sees. How dare a southern female stand against her authority. Quan must destroy said female, pour encourage les autres. Naomi (channeling her inner Honey Badger) begs to differ. Quan, chose poorly. The only question now is ambulance or shovel? And where the hell is Agent Smith?

    P.S. Chris it would be great if Naomi pants her.

      “Quan, in the invincibility of the FBI mind narrative has her as the master of all she sees.”

      I see that you, too, have encountered the FBI mind narrative in person. Given the requirement of working with FBI or CIA, I much preferred CIA. They, at least, understood the art of manipulating the other side’s intelligence analysts so the analysts would draw all the wrong conclusions, even as they looked down on all the rest of the IC as lesser beings.

      FBI was much too “smart” for that – they were the pros from Dover, no matter the subject, and no matter the lack of training therein. Arrogant fools ruined many an intel op with their “nail and jail” mindset. Idjits.

        I had to snort when I read that last paragraph.
        That’s exactly the attitude G. Gordon Liddy had when referring to the ATF.

    Two more (at least) pieces in play: Agent Smith and Piano Man.

    Then Jeeves and Zed? Then Calvary on both sides.

    Things could get interesting.

    Reality caught up with DBD’s perpetual DST last week so now I have to wait until it’s actually tomorrow for my entertainment shot, instead of 11 pm. Just as well, it was a little weird commenting about tomorrow today and calling today yesterday. But that extra hour is hard on an old dude.
