: Buying Rocks
Aug 25, 2006

Gotta love bargain bins. Just the marketing power of them alone can get you to buy junk you’d have nothing to do with otherwise.

New Wallpaper

Thought it was time for some new wallpaper. This time it’s Wally feeding “dolphins”.

Thank You!

I just wanted to take a minute to thank all the nice things said this week about the comic and getting back to the daily updates. Knowing that you enjoy seeing Wally and Osborne every weekday like this week is much encouragement and motivation to keep me doing it. So thanks!

T-Shirt Sale!

If you have been wanting to get a Wally, Osborne or Penguins Is Serious shirt, this week is a good time as there is a 15% OFF SALE going on for orders of $15 or more. Use this coupon code: SUMMERSALE06

Sorry, but there isn’t currently a sale going on at the European shop.


  1. HILARIOUS!!! LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL! Keep it up Tyler!

  2. S. Dolphin says:

    LOL So Funny… cant wait 4 monday’s

  3. Jhon says:

    hey, long time we saw those two swindlers. I hope they’ll stay a few panels with us, they’re cute 🙂

  4. Phizlo says:

    Ha ha ha ha!!

  5. Jai Inder says:

    Eh? Gravel sounds more comfortable at least, though I guess the main purpose of the rocks is shelter…so I guess…I don’t know what I am talking about anymore. Nice job anyway.

  6. BriGuy says:

    Well, I guess you could make a mound of gravel around you for a house? Well that’s why they call it a bargain box. I wonder if the juvies get the stuff they sell from the warehouse Wally breaks into. 😕

    I’ll have to check out the new wallpaper. I agree with Jhon, I hope the juvies are here for a couple of strips. Even though they’re a rip-off they’re still funny. 😎

    Really loving the updates, checking several times a day just to findout when they’ve been posted or the message got posted too 😀

    Also is there any chance you could so some backgrounds at 1680×1050? Resizing the images apart from the plain Wally or Osborne heads don’t work too well with my widescreen monitor 🙁

    Anyway keep up with the regular updates, really loving them!

  8. Jesse says:

    I think gravel would be the better choice. like Jai Inder said, its more comfy. Plus, you could pile it up around you and actually get more shelter with it

  9. Bluey says:

    lol, finding 5 squid in the ocean then selling them for one rock seems to be pretty….. unefficent. lol, i gues that’s why they’re swindlers.

  10. spyguy294 says:

    ha 🙂

  11. Jai Inder says:

    Cool, Thank you for noticing, Jesse, lol.

  12. Jai Inder says:

    On the other gravel MIGHT (and I say that cautiously) be able to be blown away, but this all speculation.

  13. Byron says:

    I love the expression on osborne’s face. By the way, could you make a couple of those wallpapers widescreen compatible? =) thanks!

    oh by the way, check out for another awesome comic involving penguins =)

  14. Kevin says:

    I love the line about letting him have the rocks for 5 squid – out here, a quid is another name for a dollar and sometimes we actually call them squids.

  15. izzieluv says:

    nice, love the juvies

  16. Alexis :) says:

    Great Comic!
    I love the updates!!
    Yeah squid must be currency.
    I’ve been wondering if Wally and Osbourne will ever get a new home.
    I love the baby penguins!

  17. Zack says:

    the juvies rock
    and BTW if any one named
    Phizlo posted his realy name is Phillip Zheng XD
    I gavce out his secret MWHAHAHAHHAA
    Anyways ROCK ON TYLER!

  18. Alexis :) says:

    We had a garage sale this morning, and, of course, we had a bargin bin.
    I kept thinking of the baby penguins. 😆
    Someone bought the whole bin (of those rubber bracelet things) for 2.00,
    so in penguin terms, 2 squid. 😯
    Can’t wait till monday, to get a new comic! 😎
    And guess what?
    I still LOVE the baby penguns! 😉
    Thanks for the updates Tyler! 🙂

  19. Alexis :) says:

    I have the bestest idea!
    You should add a poll to the website where we can vote for Wally & Osborne related things. Like “do you like Wally or Osborne better?”

  20. harry says:

    yo tyler, i think you should sell some of your original sketches and stips (not prints)lol. oh and befor i go can your loving fans lol, have a fan art page? cheers tyler. harry out, bye bye

  21. Emywemy says:

    Well I like Wally because he is hilarious, but Osborne because he’s a penguin.

  22. Canadian Mooseman says:

    Tyler, I got you new wallpaper right away! It rulez! by da way my website stinks so its canceled.

  23. Hannah says:

    hello sorry about the penguin fact, or lack of penguin fact I guess.
    well here it is:

    Fairy (Little Blue) penguins live about 7 years.

    so if I was a Little Blue right now I would be the like oldest penguin ever
    at 12 years. 😯

  24. Hannah says:

    and hey everybody penguin day, the holiday I made up
    is coming in January!!!! I can’t wait!!!

  25. Hannah says:

    and where I live school starts tomorrow 🙁

  26. Hannah says:

    and Alexis I like both Wally and Osborne but Osborne’s definately
    my favorite. What did you expect I’m a penguin freak…

  27. Emywemy says:

    Thx Hannah. Now I know what Wally meant in the comic “Polar Bear Day” when he said “I wish it was penguin day too,”. Good strip Tyler. I love the updates.

  28. Joepro says:

    Sry, Emywemy is my sister and I forgot to take her name out of the panle so that last cmment was accually from me, Joepro.

  29. Canadian Mooseman says:

    new comic please tyler

  30. Phizlo says:

    I have a question for Hannah. There are white-flippered penguins out there, but I heard that scientists are debating if they are penguins or not. Is this true?

  31. Canadian Mooseman says:

    new comic please tyler. i cant wait.
