Wombies can be very persuasive. And so can wine gums.
This strip is the fourth in a five-part series. You can start reading from the first strip here.
Good thing I’m not in charge of handing out zoning thingymajiggers. Wine Gums wouldn’t have cut it. 😉
I believe you must be an aberration. Possibly you suffer from defective taste buds. You should get that looked at.
I have been munching on sour gummi colas tonight, so I think my taste buds are working just fine.
I don’t know if I mentioned this already but I got a gummi bear cake for my b-day. I have yet to open it but am looking forward to it.
Au contraire, I believe that is ample evidence to support my hypothesis. You prefer gummi colas to wine gums? Something is definitely askew with your sense of taste.
You received a cake for your birthday a week ago and still haven’t opened it? You must be ill, indeed.
I also received the gummi colas and peach gummies. I eat one thing at a time and it took me a while to get to it.
I opened it yesterday and it is amazing.
Cake is always amazing. Though it would have been more amazing if it had wine gums, of course.
OMG genius!!!!!wine gum bribery works everytime.
Yes, I found it to be quite effective. Well, except for Americans.
Hey Loon I like wine gums
too you know? 😉 🙂 xxxx
You’re lucky! You live where wine gums were invented!
Yes I feel very lucky being able to pop down to any shop and buy some 🙂 But for now I am not eating sweets 🙁 Boooooooooooooo
No sweets?? I don’t think I could survive that kind of torture.
Can I bribe you with a wine gum, Andro? 🙂
Yes and you can bribe me with a pancake or a piece of chocolate too if you like? 🙂 xxxx
And don’t forget aunt Deb’s milkshakes! They’re awesome!
Does it work on you?
I’ll give you this really big, really thick, really chocolatey milkshake to you if you’ll let me watch my wrestling on your big screen tv at your beach house tonight.
And I want a Fraz pizza too. 🙂 🙂
Sure! You can watch my TV anytime you like. You don’t have to bribe me. But I’ll take the milkshake!
And the pizza will be delivered right when the fight starts!
It was delicious!. And boy was I surprised when I got one that was extra large!…Mmm!
That’s because a Wombie extra large is an extra large extra large!
I knew you’d tell me that, but wanted to give you the milkshake anyway.
Oh, here’s another one…This one has Carmel Toffee laced through the chocolate…Yum!
That was good! Do you think maybe you could make me another one?
Okay, I have a stack of pancakes here for you if you’ll….oh nothing. I have nothing to bribe. But you can have the pancakes! 🙂 🙂
Chocolate…no one but a wombie knows what a wine gum is.
If I can get someone to try a wine gum, it usually works.
I’ve had them, and love em!
They can be somewhat addictive.
🙂 🙂 🙂
I’d rather eat a fistful of peanuts than candy, but this weekend I’m going on a hunt for Wine Gums. I have to try this stuff out!
You won’t be disappointed! Well, maybe you will. In America wine gums are difficult to find. British import shops usually carry them. Swedish Fish are the next closest thing, but they are more candy-like.
But of course! It’s a surefire method of influencing people!
It works for people who have good taste.
ah yes, the magical properties of Wine Gums, must remember to carry them with me at all times. 😉 xx
They can definitely get one out of a jam.
I wonder if they make wine gum jam…lol
I think I should try to make some!
Send me over a jar or two once you do, please. My gang would love it on toast or pancakes.
I’ll try to make some tomorrow.
Looking forward to this…so are my Wombies!
I just finished making a big batch of wine gum jam! Just in time for lunch! Everybody dig in!
Mmm, Mmm, Good! I love it! You are a genius, Twink.
Can you have Winky ship me over a case for my Wombies?…I know they’d love it!
Certainly. As soon as I make a case!
Are you done yet?
By this afternoon. As long as Winky doesn’t get into the jam first!
I meant get into eating it. Not actually getting into the jam.
I knew what you meant. I was just shocked because I knew there was a very high possibility that Winky would!…I bet he did too!
With Winky you’re never sure what he might actually get into! I made Winky and Fraz a batch of wine gum jam too, so they left yours alone. It’ll be on the next truck going your way.
The truck just arrived! Thank you, Twink!. I’ll have to put a few jars away just for me. You know the my Wombies will eat all of it if I don’t.
I have the same problem. If I don’t put some aside for myself, there’ll be nothing left.
Bribery is okay if you need a variance. Bwahahahahahahaha.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
Sometime it is necessary to get people to see the light.
Ha Ha Ha!!! Love Binky’s look in panel 3. Perfectly executed Peter.
Thanks, Tony. I usually struggle with that.
You bribed them with wine gums? Well know wonder you got the variance….Good job, Binky!
Well it seemed like the most efficient way to get it done.
I can’t think of a better way to get your way!
Neither could I.
So many things get done with the help of alcohol.
Wine gums are a candy made without wine. So there wasn’t any alcohol involved, actually.
Wine gums. That’s new to me.
Most Americans are unfortunately deprived of wine gums. It is a travesty.
I’m a very fortunate American!
We try to take care of the special ones.
🙂 🙂 🙂
Hmm… I prefer being bribed with Money 😉
I’ve found wine gums have a more long lasting psychological effect.
All this talk about wine gum tempted me to open up another bag…Mmm! 🙂
They can be quite pervasive all on their own!
Just the name of them has power!
They’re definitely a Wombie weakness.
Mine too! 😉 🙂
I could be bribed, because I have no idea what it is. Checking wiki!
Wine gums are the most divine candy ever created. Of course that is just one Wombie’s opinion.
My five adopted Wombies agree too…me too!
It’s an opinion shared by most Wombies. And the smartest of people.
did I just witness Binky go speechless..oh this is new
Binky nice one, there isn’t anything like a chocolate or a wine gum bribe, it can solve any problem
Sometimes it is better to say nothing.
I have found that, too. Wine gums are an excellent solution to most problems.
Binky all of them who are looking at you as if you did something wrong will come running to you when you are all set to go to the chocolate moon, so do not worry..you have my support
Yes, you are undoubtedly right. The payoff is sufficient to justify the bribe in this case.
Milkshakes work pretty good too! 🙂
Did someone mention milkshakes? I haven’t had one in ages!
Aw, I guess I’ve neglected you lately, Fraz..Forgive me?
Here, I just fixed you a super sized, Wombie Sized Frazzy Favorite triple chocolate fudge, with extra ice cream to make it super thick, topped with chocolate whipped cream, choco-chips and a choco-covered cherry on top…no, let make that 3 of those instead of just one!
That’s just the way I like them! You always know what I want! And give it to me!
Twink is busy trying to make Wine Gum Jam. So I brought your your breakfast.
Super sized chocolate chip pancakes, one dozen choco filled donuts, one dozen jelly filled donuts, lost of butter and syrup, 2 of your favorite milkshakes, juice and fried spam.
That was the yummiest breakfast I’ve ever had! Now I can go and do my secret agent pirate mission! Like over here: http://adamsart.wordpress.com/2013/08/03/agent-007/
Thanks Fraz! 🙂 🙂 🙂
I am not familiar with Wine Gums but if I behave at the dentist’s office, she almost always gives me ‘Bleeding Gums’ before I leave. W.C.C.
Bleeding gums are not nearly as desirable as wine gums. You should tell your dentist to give out wine gums instead.
I love his expression in the last panel!
Thanks, Jared. It took a few tries to get it right.
All those few tries were worth is, Peter!
Your welcome, Peter. 🙂
They just know, what’s good 😉
And Wine gums are very very good.
I can vouch for that statement 🙂
Good thing you did not have to use Chocolate also. You need to keep something for yourself Binky.
Chocolate was my backup bribe.
If the wine gums didn’t work, the chocolate would have. But you bagged it first try!
It’s always wise to have a backup plan, just in case, though.
That’s true. Once must always be prepared for the unexpected.
Especially around humans. They can be so unpredictable.
We have blush ignition!
Um, I believe the sun was setting. Or something.
Or something. 😉 🙂
This launch pad series is absolutely brilliant Peter, and as for the wine gum bribing idea, well that is just Wombietastic 🙂 🙂
Thanks, Andro. Wine gums seemed to be the natural solution to Binky’s problem.
That and a little rocket fuel.
Or perhaps even a wine gum fueled rocket. No, I think it’d be best just to eat them.
That’s a good idea. We use the fuel some other time.
Yes, even I think it’s better to eat a wine gum than to burn it up as rocket fuel.
They say that marshmallows make good rocket booster fuel but it is probably just hearsay 🙁
With their high sugar content and calorific value, they probably would make good rocket fuel. Marshmallow rockets sound like something I should investigate.
Who want’s S’mores?
I have a huge tray of them, Winky! and milkshakes…enough for everyone!
That’s good because it’s snack time and everyone is starving! Well I am anyway.
Everyone get hungry over here with all the talk about goodies.
You want some of my dinner? It’s streamed carrots and cauliflower. No? That’s fine. You can have the chocolate eclair cake instead.
That’s a tough choice, but I think I’ll go for the cake!
I had to try didn’t I?…lol
You can give your veggies to Andro. I’m sure he’ll like it.
Good stuff. I googled wine gums and they are supposed to be similar to but sweeter than gummi bears. And guess who comes up #5 on a google search? Wombania!
Wine gums are similar to gummi bears, but much chewier and with a more subtle flavor. I would say they are much less sweet tasting, but they both seem to have about the same percentage of sugar, 50%.
It’s too bad we don’t rank that high for something people actually searched for!
Maybe we can fix that. We need reasons to talk about household items, sports gear, tool and such.
Sound like a job for Binky…maybe Fraz.
I’m not sure how much weight is given to comments on blogs. I think not much. The proven way to rank for something is to provide a separate page devoted to the subject. If you’re looked on as an expert on the matter, eventually others will link to it, thus increasing its search engine ratings.
Those must be some powerful wine gums.
They are. I only bribe with the best.
I’m whining for wine gums!
Is there any wine in wine gums?
No. They’re just supposed to have the fine flavor of wines.
I demand a retrial.
I’ll recommend offering ‘wine gums’ ethical to get work done 🙂 Students would surely clap for Binky 🙂
I’ve found wine gums to be a superb motivator.
Bureaucracy never sounded so… delicious!
Even they have their weakness.
Ahahahah Binky’s blushing???? I LOVE IT!!!!
I would rather forget it, actually.
Best Wombania last panel EVER! Talk about looking guilty!
Thanks, Denny. I’m glad you liked it. It did take a few tries to get the right look.
Love Binky’s expression!! Here you would need close to a truckload of wine gums for the variance… they are far too used to taking bribes.
Thanks, Red. I guess you could say your officials are proficient at the game.
