Extra Healthy Weight
on May 17, 2012 at 12:00 am
If extra weight made you extra healthy, then most of us would have nothing to worry about.
(This comic strip was previously published on October 4, 2010.)
Androgoth, our gothic writer friend from the My Gothic Realm Blog, drew this cartoon of Fraz as a junior Vampire prince. Andro writes gothic-themed poems and short fiction for his blog, and you can view Andro’s original post of Vampire Fraz here. If he’ll let you into his private space.
What an overachiever!
I try my best. Especially when chocolate is involved.
I like Winky’s way of thinking !
It’d be a lot easier if it actually worked that way!
Haha, that was a nice one, Winky!
A little extra weight never hurt anyone. Besides, I don’t think anyone looked good as a bag of bones, right?
That’s for sure! Wombies are naturally plump, so I don’t have to worry about that.
Why is it that all the scrummy yummy foodstuffs make us unhealthy, overweight or both? 🙁 If we could eat whatever we wanted and still be healthy, fit as a fiddle and a reasonable weight then diets would be a thing of the past 🙂
I think that Binky needs to start pushing the boundaries for his Space Programme, maybe introduce a new fangled astro-diet of pancakes, wine gums, marshmellows, spam and chocolate for greedy Astronauts 🙂
I just hope that the Rocket Ship will be able to take off with that kind of healthy diet installed? 🙂
Great job on the drawing…love the jam effect!!!
The crazed “Go for the jam” look!
Thank you Bearman, the only trouble with adding those jammy fangs was the craving of jam doughnuts afterwards 🙁 lol
I’d like a diet of chocolate, wine gums, and pancakes! Actually, that is my diet.
You’re right, Binky should be able to come up with some kind of diet that’s yummy and good for us. Astronaut training is hard, but it should be delicious, too!
Yes I agree with you on that one Winky and if we are expected to join everyone in outer space then we will need lots of nourishment and pancakes are a well known ingredient for space travellers, however just at this moment in time I just cannot remember who suggested that idea 🙂
I think it might have been you, but my tummy doesn’t care. A good food idea is a good food idea! But I hope the pancakes won’t have to be freeze dried or put in tubes or anything, like some of the old time space food I read about.
It’s hard to believe anyone could do that to poor fluffy pancakes!
No way… We are having pancakes in their original form or not at all 🙂 I think that Binky can invent something to stop this happening, I mean can you imagine the horrible taste of a pancake put through such extremes? 🙁
No, I can’t imagine it! And I don’t think Binky would ever freeze dry pancakes, either! I’m sure he’ll have a way for us to have good tasty food on our rocket trip. He is a Wombie, after all!
Yes and a very intelligent, wicked, cream of the crop scientist, rocket ship developer, and genius of all things techno 🙂 Yes Winky I am sure that he will come up with something rather special 🙂
Yeah, Binky’s all that, and besides, if he doesn’t come up with some tasty space treats, we’ll mutiny!
Or stay home…but where’s the fun in that?
A good mutiny can be fun! We’re Space Pirates, yarr!
Yes we are the jolly Space Pirates and Pancake Bandits of Mars, Pluto and Earth 🙂
And no one would dare stand between us and our food, matey!
Tally Ho 🙂
Great job on the artwork of Fraz, Andro!
Thank you for adding my take on Fraz the Vampy, he certainly looks hungry for more of those strawberry Doughnuts, actually I wouldn’t mind a few of those myself 🙂 Have a great start to your Thursday Peter and thank you again for this fine honour 🙂
You’re welcome, Andro. Your Fraz looks very good up there, and I’m glad to be able to have him on my site.
I rather like him on here too 🙂
And I think he’s pretty awesome, too!
Well, of course you do, Fraz.
I’m pleased that you like them Fraz 🙂
False advertising. I really hate that 🙁
Could be worse. You could be 50% more than your unhealthy weight!!! Glass of chocolate half full or half empty?
My glass of chocolate is always completely empty, no matter how many times I refill it.
It is that pesky hole at the top of it, Winky.
I think that must be it!
I have the same prob but mine’s a wine glass 🙄
Mine is choco milkshakes Loon, so put the wine down and grab some before it’s all gone 🙁 Just kidding Loon we have plenty in the fridge, but how it gets there we just do not know, maybe it is the milkishake Genie? 🙂
I could go for a chocolate milkshake now! But our milkshake fairy seems to be missing.
It’s uncanny how they always disappear at the wrong moment 🙁 I hope she fills the fridge up before Fraz sees it otherwise he will be using up some more of his wishes…
I don’t know what we’d do without Fraz’s genie! Starve I guess!
I want a genie 🙁
Don’t worry Loon, Fraz is wishing for lots of wondrously exciting things for us, so I guess that we are all enjoying his Genie 🙂
Free wishes for everyone! At least as long as my genie can still give them!
Filled with chocolates?
Mine is a wide mouth rock glass.
But not filled with rocks, right?
Maybe it is rock glass candy with melted chocolate and a big marshmellow on the top? 🙂
That sounds good! I’ll take one. Or maybe two.
I usually have three at a time but two is good for starters 🙂
I didn’t want to be too greedy!
I will give you three next time Winky 🙂
Start with two…one for each hand.
Could I start with two in each hand instead?
How big are your hands?
Not as big as my stomach!
I guess diets are just as bad with math as I am!
Why can’t diet math work out the way it should?
He’s not fat…he is just well rounded.
That’s exactly what I say! I’m well rounded. Very well rounded.
You should come down to my house and tell THAT to my cruel mommy!! I miss my normal food portion
Maybe we could sneak out together and get something yummy for our tummies!
Yeah, he’s right, 50% equals “Super duper extra healthy.” Look it up if you don’t believe me.
Yeah, Twink, look it up! I’m healthier than you think!
Well, after being out of state all week and eating like there is no tomorrow I’m super extra healthy too. Bwahahahahahaha. Not.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
Holidays have a way of doing that. Hope you had a good trip.
I like this definition of healthy!
I think it’s the right definition, but some people seem to not agree.
FINALLY I MEET YOU 🙂
Have some chocolate and wine gums and you’ll fit right in!
Well it’s about time that you got here Cat and do have some of these yummy marshmellows they are super wicked, and even Super Stupid can’t get enough of them 🙂
Shhh!! Super Stupid is supposed to be secret!
With his own page? How secret is that?
Oop’s I forgot about that one, maybe nobody but Red noticed my error? 🙂
Hopefully no one noticed! We have to keep Super Stupid’s secret identity secret or else he might be kicked out of the Super Hero’s Union.
Yes that would be shocking, and could even upset the balance of the universe 🙁
It looks like we won’t have to worry about that, though. Whew!
You know if there is a page for it, I will find it, Andro…
If you find my page, I mean his page, keep it to yourself!!
Yes Red don’t give away the secrets of you know who? 🙂
Him, you know, the guy in the mask 🙂 lol
Oh yeah! I forgot.
Forgot about what? 🙂
I’m not sure, but I think it had something to do with chocolate. At least that’s what my tummy is saying.
Glad you made it, Cat!
Yes me too, now let’s have a marshmellow party, I think that Fraz has all the party hats that we will need but I can always get some more later 🙂
The party’s already started early on my island, so everyone BE THERE!
I just need to collect a few surprises for you and then I will be there in double quick time, now I wonder if you will like a… Well that would be telling 🙂
Oh boy, I can hardly wait!!
I’ll bring the wine… whoops, wine gums!!!
And lots of chocolate Loon, we always like to finish off a wine gum special with chocolates 🙂
And sometimes whipped cream, too!
And always wearing our party hats 🙂
With a cherry on top! Of our hats!
I’ve been there and am having the time of my life, Fraz!
Yep, it’s non-stop fun and pancakes!! And a little treasure hunting, too!
Has Binky designed some sort of marshmallow toaster? We need those sticks which toast the inside whilst you roast them…Mmmmm
That’s a great idea! Binky, we need you!
Come on Binky we need your techno partying skills and we need it right now before these pancakes go cold 🙂
I’ve been distracted with some rocket injector problems, not to mention preparing for Sunday’s solar eclipse.
hey I hope you don’t miss out on that one Binky 🙂
It was only an annular eclipse here, but still worth watching. Not directly, though, of course.
Maybe next time 🙂
Around 2,600 years, right?
I think I’ll be busy then.
Winky, I think we all wished it worked that way.
Then why doesn’t it?? It’s not fair!
… diets NEVER work. I think you look good winky!
Thanks! I don’t think I look too bad. Well, maybe I’m a little plumper than I should be.
We all just need to eat raw food. 🙂
I never cook my wine gums!
Well I like raw carrots but I like my marshmellows toasting, does that count? 🙂
I was trying not to think about vegetables.
Doesn’t toasting crisp the calories?
Are crispy calories supposed to be good or bad?
They are good if you like crispy marshmellows but not so hot if it’s a frazzled carrot, nobody likes toasted carrots you know 🙁
I’d sure rather have a toasted marshmallow than a toasted carrot any day! But my marshmallows always seem to get stuck in the toaster for some reason.
Yes carrots do that too 🙁
I won’t try that, then. Not that I was going to!
Toasted sprouts can be a bit tricky too 🙁
Tricky to find anyone that would like to eat them! Well, other than you.
Yes I love sprouts and if it were possible to toast them, then I am sure that I would eat those too 🙂
I guess a blowtorch might not be the best way to toast sprouts.
And a flamethrower is definitely not recommended 🙁
Binky tried that on the lawn once, and Chris wasn’t too happy!
They are very good. You do not have to count the crispy ones…they are all skinny and crispy.
I’ll try to eat more crispy calories, then!
yep diets never work for me either.
The only diet that worked for me was the chocolate diet. Well, it worked, other than the losing weight part.
I think that you like the seafood diet the best 🙂 Every time you see food you eat it 🙂
That sounds like a good diet, especially if the only food I see is chocolate and wine gums and pancakes!
Don’t forget the marshmellows and spam cakes 🙂
Sure, those are good too! And chocolate cake and fudge!
not that I really want it, but where are the “like” buttons for the comments.
You mean a like button for individual comments? I’m not sure how to do that.
Why don’t we just say ‘I LIKE IT’ and that way we can add them all up after each comic strip 🙂 It will be good Maths homework for Fraz 🙂
Somebody find that “like” thing!
Ratings. Comments tab. Only check box.
There doesn’t seem to be any options like that, under the Comments or Discussion tabs. I think it must be a plugin I don’t have.
Right well that means we are back to the option of just telling everyone that we ‘Like It’ and as everyone always does then we can deduce that 100% of everyone is a big follower of the Wombies of Wombania 🙂 isn’t it nice when everything is so simple? 🙂
That sounds good to me! Now I wonder how I can convince Facebook of that? The most liked comic ever!
Is that comic still going? 🙁
I was under the impression that it was!
It must be worth over one hundred billion by now, well give or take a few hundred millions 🙂
I think I need to hold an IPO then!
You skipped a step…The Ratings tab first. It is not under settings.
You mean from the main menu on the left? I have no Ratings tab. And I couldn’t find any Ratings tab under any of the other menu selections, either. I’m running a comics plugin/theme which may be the reason that option isn’t there.
I will try and find it for you. I cannot remember if it is a JetPack or a plugin…It is not native to the platform.
Should be here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/polldaddy/
From the Add new plugins screen, search PollDaddy. You get comment ratings and post ratings (stars or thumbs up/down).
Looks like overweight is the way to go then Winky? Can you please tell my mum that?
I’ll tell her the plump look is in. Who wants a skinny rat?
No one. Or a skinny Wombie, either.
That’s what I wanted to hear!
Or even a skinny Vampire, though it does help if you can take off after midnight 🙂 Yes I did mean flying Red 🙂
I think my cape is defective ’cause I can’t fly with it.
It takes years of practice Fraz but don’t try the washing lines for taking off just yet as those are difficult for any Vampire 🙁
Practice?? Years?? Well, that’s kind of disappointing.
Washing lines are tough for anyone.
They can kill you, if you’re going fast enough!
They are good for hanging wet Vampy Capes on though, especially if it is breezy enough to dry them out after a crash landing into the nearest duck pond 🙂
That wasn’t a crash landing! It was just an emergency test of, umm, my waterproofness!
Well it was a soft landing so all is well, now while you are drying off how about a bag of yummy wine gums and a pancake whopper to finish off with? 🙂
That usually makes my tummy feel better, thanks.
You’re welcome Fraz 🙂
Sure you did, Andro…
Well I might have been a tad naughty there too but let’s pretend I meant the flying scenario 😉
Our internet is due for connection on Monday. Hopefully…
I am having serious webcomic withdrawals
Hey Tony, you need some triple choc pancake whoppers and a bag of yummy wine gums to keep you going until the Internet connection is solved 🙂 Fraz is on his way round with them but don’t be surprised if there is none left by the time he gets there 🙁
I wasn’t going to eat them all! I was just testing them!
Did you take a bite from each one of them to be sure none of them were poisoned?
I might have.
I’m not surprised at all, in fact I expected it 🙂
It is the most thorough approach.
And tasty, too!
That sure works for me…
Yeah, Tony, you obviously need some chocolate reinforcements until you get your internet back!
I had a whole family size block of chocolate reinf-awesome-ments the other day. It did help ease the pain & suffering
Chocolate always helps!
Ain’t that the truth, Winky.
But why? Why??
Cool! By his calculations, I’m super-duper healthy Extreme. Yeah!
Hold on, (huff-puff) I gotta sit back down.
Here George have a slice of this extra thick pancake, I have covered it in an ultra generous coating of chocolate but you can always have the syrup if you prefer? 🙂
I prefer both, if you don’t mind. A triple chocolate maple syrup pancake, topped with more chocolate syrup. And maybe some fudge.
You can have both, and even some of those choc chips on top if you like, they add a nice crunch to the pancake and offer a delicious taste too 🙂
That’s the way I like my pancakes!
I’m going to try to eat more to be even more healthy!
If you can eat them, I can make them 🙂
We could make a good team, then!
Exactly and just think how, with lots of pancake eating practice you could be 75% more than your healthy weight, now that is definitely something to aim for 🙂
I think that’s a diet goal I could reach!
And then on to the next 🙂
I AGREE!! Why does EVERYTHING that tastes really yummy always bad for you? One of the age old mysteries I guess? W.C.C.
Yes it’s a dilemma that we all have to face, but do we stop eating chocolate? Noooo we don’t 🙂 🙂
If I stopped eating chocolate, I’d shrivel up and die!
Hey you can’t be doing that in here Winky, this is the living room 🙂
I’d rather die in the kitchen so I could be closer to food. And some of the food that Twink cooks there is to die for!
I know, something must be wrong with the universe somewhere!
I think he should have stuck to his guns. Super duper extra health sounds right to me.
Yes and to me too Mort J. Moose 🙂
It sounded pretty good to me, too.
Thank you I needed this…i am super duper healthy too 😉
and plus those weighing scales are super defective ..always
Well you won’t mind if I offer you a triple marshmellow on a pancake covered in yummy chocolate then will you Soma? 🙂 We will all be wanting to share it though so it’s best if you tuck in straight away 🙂
I wouldn’t mind sharing that pancake with you!
OH mY goodness I want it right now 😉
Dig in, Soma! It’s big enough for all of us!
We always did like a nice pancake covered in yummy chocolate party 🙂 Come on Soma there is plenty left 🙂
Pancake parties are the best!
Unless it’s a wine gum or chocolate party? 🙂
They’re the best too!
I never thought about that, but I think you’re right! I should get another scale. One that weighs less. Or maybe one that makes me taller.
Have you noticed how I chip into every conversation around here? 🙂 I think it’s with eating so many of these yummy pancakes 🙂
As long as they’re chocolate chips, that’s okay!
There are always extra chocolate chips for those that wants some Winky 🙂
I’ll take some, thanks!
If God wanted us to be skinny he would not have given us stomach…
Then I guess I was meant to be extra plump!
I was meant to be cheesecake??
No, not you…if we were not meant to be plump there would be no cheesecake…Cheesecake flavored anything is yummy…
Oh, that makes a lot more sense! Yeah, cheesecake is very yummy, especially chocolate cheesecake!
I have a recipe for a chocolate cheesecake with chocolate chips and drizzled (three different kinds of) chocolate on top of a chocolate cookie crust. I doubt you would like it.
No, I wouldn’t like that. I’d love it!
A tall, skinny Wombie? Why?
Don’t look at me!
There is noting like a tall skinny Wombie that is extra plump and standing on a scale that weighs less than usual 🙂
Another round of pancakes anyone? 🙂
You can never have too many pancakes! Thanks for asking!
No problem, I always have spare pancakes for you Winky, indeed I have spare pancakes for everyone that wants them 🙂
Yeah, this is like the free pancake zone!!
If diets weren’t so hard to achieve, many of us would be in tip-top shape. Then again, no one could ever tell what exactly is the healthy kind of physique, right? No two persons are exactly alike. One may be slim but eats what they want, while the other is fat but only eats limited amounts of food.
I agree with you there Sylvia 🙂
And some of us just eat and eat and eat. That’s what Wombies were meant to do.
I have a friend who can eat whatever she wants without gaining unwanted weight. I, on the other hand, would eat only some sweets, and I feel I’m bloating already.
Those kind of friends can be annoying!
Yes they are but don’t worry Felicia because we can help you eat all your sweets, and all of our own sweets too 🙂
Yeah, if Felicia needs that kind of help, we’ll be right there for her!
Haha, thanks Winky and Androgoth! I actually have some Black Forest cake left in the fridge. Care to have some? The cherries are also dipped halfway in dark chocolate. Yumyum!
I’m there!! Black Forest cake is yummy! But we better save some for Andro, too.
Wow you can count me in on that lovely idea, why not make it a chocolate and fudge, wine gum, pancake and black forest cake surprise? 🙂 Thank you Felicia Mmmmm 🙂
I’ll bring the fudge and wine gums!
I agree Winky, those kind of friends can be annoying, especially if you are with them during holiday feasts and you can see them gulping everything in their path (just like Pacman).
It’s too bad they couldn’t share their high metabolism or whatever it is they have with us!
Yes I could help with that thought Winky 🙂 If felicia doesn’t mind us getting involved with holiday feasts and noshing everything in sight? 🙂
Yeah, I guess if we eat up everything first, then Felicia won’t have to!
I’ve just eaten an entire bag of chocolate blueberries. and now i feel sick 🙁
Don’t worry we will look after you Nurse Myra 🙂 And probably eat anything else that you have brought to the party 🙂
Yeah, I’ve definitely brought my appetite!
Yeah Me Too 🙂
Next time I’ll help you! I don’t want you feeling sick.
Yes and you can count me in on that one too, we don’t want you getting poorly with eating it all on your own 🙁
No, you have friends that’ll help you eat the good stuff!
Mmm. Chocolate blueberries. Fab snack.
I want some of yours Red 🙂
I wonder if she has red blueberry chocolates?
I hope so Winky, I am getting very hungry just thinking about that idea 🙂
So am I, and I just finished some pancakes!
Red and blue berries are both wonderful in chocolate… Toss in some white chocolate and we could have a right patriotic snack!
Sounds good to me! I should have this on the Fourth of July to celebrate!
It is Memorial Day weekend here. This would be the perfect reason to have RWB berries.
That sounds like a good idea!
Those dang diets 🙂
Where’s the chocolate when you need it?
I want some now, hey have you tried a Rocky Bar? They are yummy you know 🙂
No, I haven’t. They sound good, though. Well, as long as they’re not made of rocks.
No rocks but plenty of thick chocolate on them, and I know that you would adore them Winky 🙂
That’s for sure!
I’m super healthy too!
We must be on the same team!
Diets? Are those things still around?
Maybe we could ban them?
Maybe, Bearman can have his politicians outlaw them.
That might work, but they’d probably bring in something even worse to replace them!
I lost weight just readin’ all the comments. I don’t usually go that lobg without food.
Well at least you made it! Here, have some pancakes!
Yes Bo there is always pancakes on offer for all of our wicked friends, just tell us if you prefer syrup or chocolate coated one’s and we will supply you with a never-ending feast 🙂
I think I need to have some more pancakes.
Yes I will pop them into the pan right away 🙂
I can hardly wait!
I love pancakes…with lots of butter and syrup, and sausage and eggs and bacon and hashbrowns. Uh oh. I’m hungry again.
I’m always hungry, even though I’m always eating. I don’t get that!
You’re the healthiest wombat I know… I don’t know too many 🙁
I’m chocolate healthy!
You should celebrate that with a box of chocolates. I’ll join you.
That sounds good! Lets dig in!
Cha is there enough chocolates for me too? 🙂
I love those reflections on tht tiled floor in the first panel. I also like all the talk about chocolate milkshakes!
Since you don’t have to draw them, reflections are easy, other than increased rendering time.
Don’t worry Winky, I’m extra healthy too 🙂 The way you are 😉 Diets take only off all joy of life.
Well I wouldn’t want to do that! I guess I should just stay the way I am.
Yes Winky how about a round of pancakes, three for you, and one for anyone else that fancies some 🙂
I won’t argue with that!
No need for dieting Sabina, it’s time for a pancake party and we are going to be enjoying lots of them for sure 🙂
And I think some of us may be enjoying a few more pancakes than others!
Diets are tortures. Chocolate gives possitive energy. That’s why I prefer chocolate more, than any diet. 🙂
I think everyone would choose chocolates over a diet!
Diets don’t work but changing eating habits might.
I guess, but it’s still hard to do!
I’m seeing a trend of diet comics lately, is it because it’s almost bikini and beach season? =D
It’s always diet season for me! And I don’t even wear bikinis!
