: Spray Method
Jan 22, 2007

Yup, Wally once again is trying out his punishment methods in an attempt to train some chinstrap penguins not to fight. Sorry for such a late update today, hopefully the big strip makes it more worth it, they are fun to do and I like how the overall layout of them.

I don’t remember ever trying the spray method with any dogs I’ve had. It seems like they would actually like it, I can picture them licking and biting at the mist. I guess they have some citrus or vinegar solutions you can add to make it less pleasant. In the event it does no good, perhaps it gives a frustrated owner an outlet in pretending to shoot their dog in the face.

Interviews & Reviews!

I totally forgot to mention this extensive interview with me at Comixpedia. Also Wally & Osborne got a brief review at Newsarama along with the other seven Lunchbox Funnies comics.


  1. mic says:

    Whoo hoo!!! First comment!!!NICE COMIC TYLER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Phizlo says:

    I don’t know if Wally could be a good parent if he keeps doing to that to the sqauking penguins. 🙂 Even so, it would be cool if Wally hitted the penguins with something else.

  3. tux says:

    I don’t find the spray method very effective either, at least not with a spray bottle.

    My sister has a Lion-Rabbit (rabbit with fur shaved/grown like a mane) that is quite stubborn about not being trained, we started with the clap method with absolutely no success and progressed to the spray method. Now he goes away a wet rabbit and very quickly. My sister also had some more “normal” rabbits when she was younger and we lived in a warmer climate where we let them live outside and my father’s method of training them was with the hose pipe and that was quite quite effect! Although they also went away very wet!

  4. ha ha I love the comic,HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. zeel says:

    well the method worcs (with cats atlest) with a squrt gun aspesily small ones coz thay sting.

    wally shold try time outs thogh getting them to comply wold be hard…

    keep up the funys 8-):-)8-):-):-O

  6. Jamie (I looove penguins) says:

    Oh WALLY! haha….he can be quite dumb at times! Poor annoying penquins….they just need to stop quarrling around the polar bear!:)

  7. Roi says:

    We have a water gun, and it works just fine. You have to do it on dogs that hate the cold, or just water in general. The only problem is that the one we have takes a few seconds to get water pumping through it and out at anything. It’s a really cheap one. But we certainly don’t hit the dogs with it if it won’t squirt water. Besides, once they notice that someone is trying to squirt water at them they stop barking or whatever.

    ha ha ha

  9. Top Ten! :mrgreen:
    Haha!! There should be a comic where theym are arguing and see Wally and run away! 😀
    Here is a short review paragraph on emperor penguins’ teamwork.

    Together We Can 🙂
    Emperor penguins stay warm by “huddling” together. They live in colonies. Some colonies are quite far from the open water. In the winter, they can be as far as 50 miles away!!


  10. Penguin Guru says:

    We have one of those squirt bottles in our basement, but we’ve never used it on our dog. And we’ve certainlly never hit him over the head with it! Wally can be so cruel! Why was he never like this with Max?

  11. Daniel says:

    Sweet. Like the water balloon joke, you’re creating another mini series of jokes. Great job and keep up the good work!

  12. Xavier says:

    Wally’s getting gritter every passing day, just like James Bond. 😛

    The spray method works great with cats, but it won’t work with dogs, there’s hardly any way to annoy them. Anyway I say let’s remove those penguins’ feather grease with soap and soak them with water and expose them to Antarctic weather, they won’t be wasting calories arguing any longer I say. In fact they won’t be doing anything at all any longer in a short period of time.

    Those dunes in the background are a little excessive, they look like ice cream. 😉

  13. Lee says:

    In Wally’s hands corporal punishment is promoted to major disaster.

  14. Ishmael says:

    He always makes those penguin uncounis

  15. zeel says:

    lol ice crem? the thing is wally sholdent be so violint its just not him now osborne now he cold get away with vilince

    need staryline!

    need watter bloon!!

    need food!!!

    but most of all NEED GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. hey in the first panel the . and ? are mixed up. 😉

  17. Phill says:

    Our cat used to be crazy, and would bite and/or scratch anyone who went near him. We had a few spray bottles in strategic locations around the house to squirt him in the face when he was naughty. It worked to an extent (he learned to check you weren’t holding a bottle before eating your limbs). Drenching the little guy was so fun that we started doing it all the time, regardless of his behaviour. Heh, heh.

  18. will says:

    my dog is obsessed over tennis balls. instead of punishing him when he does something bad, i just take it away and put it somewhere he can’t reach. its funny to see him jumping up and down trying to get it.
    tyler! new comic! NOW!

  19. BriGuy says:

    Ah yes… the old chinstrap penguins. After the water balloon fiascoes you would of thought Wally had learned that water freezes but apparently not. It’s also neat to have some recurring characters other than the juvies.

    I like the second panel. It looks like something you would see in a commercial. 😛

  20. BriGuy says:

    I just realized, you could make a category in the archives for the fighting chinstrap penguins.

  21. Hannah says:

    hey people :mrgreen:
    my friend sprayed her cat but it liked the water
    so it didn’t do much good.
    i like how the sky turns orange sometimes. 😀

  22. top 20 wooo hooo!
    LUV the comic!!!! luv the 3rd panel !!!!!!!

  23. Cristina says:

    If wally really had kids i bet the social services people would get REALLY annoyed at him 😡
    I tried to use the spray bottle system w/ my cat, but whenever i was close to the spray bottle she never did anything, and when she did do something the bottle was in the other room, so it wasn’t very effective.
    It’s good my cat is mostly well behaved!!!

  24. zeel says:

    the trooth is that wally cant have kids! thar arent any girl polerbars in antarctica! we dont even know how wally got thar s how is a girl polerbar guna do it?

    need to know Wally’s origen…gasp…most know…

  25. Diana says:

    🙂 mrgreen 😀 😉 I like this website- especaly the comics! Go to – there you can make a penguin, couse then you can meet new friends! By Diana L.

  26. hehe, i like this one!! yeah, we try to use the “spray method” on our cat sometimes, but the stupid sprayer takes forever to actually get water out of, so usually the cat runs off by the time it starts to work:(….therefore, the spray method does not have a very good record in our house 😉

  27. Cristina says:

    Aw, Osborne needs a girl penguin to have a crush on, even the scraggly penguin they tried to steel the rocks from had some girls after him… those gold diggers….

    oh, he could be another re occuring character, i would like to see how he is doing now that he has a mountain of rocks and a few girlfriends to keep him company…..

  28. i hate 2 tell any1 this, but once when i was younger, probably around 5 or 6, i had this cat named que. well, i called her q, but u get the point. anyway, like i was saying, the spray bottle was out of my reach so i grabbed a bottle of kitchen cleaner and started spraying her with it. she was nearly soaked and i got in trouble. i never did that again. and now we have a dog, not a cat.

  29. :mrgreen:
    luv the 4th panel, too!!!

  30. :mrgreen:
    love the 4th panel, too!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. i have a theory: when something doesnt turn out like they plan, or when they take a quick pause, thats when the sky changes colors.
    then again, i could be wrong

  32. OrAnGe JuIcE says:

    I say… bring back the shovel!! It would be kind of funny if he wacked ’em with it before Osborn shows up and tries to bury them. Iknow, I have a twisted sense of humor. Plus, the juvies need to come back, they could try selling ”corporal punishment tools” for Wally.

  33. OrAnGe JuIcE says:

    Click on my name to see hilarious flash movies @!

  34. OrAnGe JuIcE says:

    Okay, so they’ve done cowboys.. what’s next you ask? Disco dudes! Wally’s already go the poses (see in downloads) and all you would have to add is an afro and glasses! That would be so funny!

  35. calan ree says:

    you made me chuckle on an otherwise miserable day. thanks tyler. 🙂

    i love wally’s expression in that last panel. awesome work as always.

  36. Zoey says:

    HA HA HA the water ALWAYS freezes

  37. Canadian Mooseman says:

    LOL…another hilarious day from the one and only…Tyler Martin!!!WOOOT!

    Yeah so anyways, I read your interview and stuff! I can’t wait for the book. It would be nice if you had tons of extra features and stuff in the book like you said.

  38. Canadian Mooseman says:

    Yeah so keep it up…thats all.

  39. Bryan says:

    LOL! nice Tyler… Hmm.. I fell sorry for the penguins…
    But on the other hand they kindof deserve it..


  40. Sputnix says:

    looks like they survived so that makes 9 not 11 deaths.
    HOORAY FOR CARTOON VIOLENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  41. Cristina says:

    I read your interview to, i am excited for the cool member scrolly thing you were talking about…
    How is your book coming along, it has been at 2 pages for a LONG time

  42. crazycat12 says:

  43. Jenny says:
