Rain Delay 4 by JocelynSamara Rain Delay 4 by JocelynSamara
Introducing “Rain Delay”: goofy little gag comics to keep you entertained while I work on the legit stuff. ^_^

Ancient Bunny Wisdom
Inspired (and quoted mostly verbatim) from a conversation that took place between two watchers on an earlier page. The idea was so silly and amused me ever so much, that I just had to see it. Besides, there’s been an alarming lack of Rain in these “Rain Delay” comics lately.

Caption-me Rudy
There’s no excuse for this. I just love that panel (page 40) SO much. Somewhere along the line, I started to amuse myself by having Rudy say random things in my mind that may evoke the same reaction from Maria and Gavin.

Try this at home if you like. It’s a great way to pass the time, ESPECIALLY if you’re feeling silly. The only rule is that the first word must always be “Dude.”

Also, llama to the first person who knows the obscure reference in the last one.

(Oh yeah, and the real pages start back up on Monday!)

Obscure ish reference "Dude, ever wonder why we're here?" related "Dude, What like a puma?", "Dude, TUCKER DID IT", "Dude, Memory is the key.", "Dude, You can't pick up chicks in a tank." and "Dude, none of those make sense at all unless you watch Red verses Blue."

Bunny wisdom... of course! What kind of life experience does a bunny even have to offer up such profound nuggets for achieving life-long gratification... then again, if the bunny is able to overcome such monumental challenges such as speech and rational thought, maybe you should listen...

In the category "Song Lyrics"
Rudy: Dude. I'm the Repo. LEGAL ASSASSIN.
Maria and Gavin: *Shocked as usual*

Had anyone pointed out that the song lyrics are from "Paparazzi" by Lady Gaga, or is it too obvious to state?

It has been pointed already, yes.

If it makes you feel any better, I don't think it's too obvious. But I don't even terribly like Lady Gaga, so if I hadn't purposely looked it up, I wouldn't have known said lyrics myself.

~ Haha, live octopus! XD I love that one. The Song Lyrics one is interesting too, and I could totally see those expressions in that case. XD

Also I love "If you stand really still, predators can't see you." <3

Dude, you have the biggest hatedom of the fanbase so far.

Surfer Speak:
Duuuuuuuude....

And Puddle's fanbase just trippled. *shot*

That may cause Gavin's face to look like that, but I don't know if Maria would respond like that hearing that fans don't care for Gavin. ^^;

My lady love was always comparing Rudy to Hurley from Lost because of the "dude" thing. But surfer lingo works too, I suppose. ^_^

Puddle deserves whatever fans he gets. He may not get a lot of screen time, nor really does he do anything most of the time, but he is one awesome little bunny.

idk if someone fond the answer but it's quite a sneaky one;

Final Fantasy 6, written in a letter at the "Opera house"

I've played this game at least 12-14 years ago but I clearly remember this one lol ;)
Also, because of that I expect "Maria's" name to come in reference of that game too =P

Someone else did catch the reference already. However, you bring up a good point. I didn't consider the fact that Maria's name is also in that game (in that scene, even). ^_^

Puddle has some weird advice, although the part about standing still is probably true haha. The second was hilarious especially the part about about him saying weird and funny things that get that some kind of reaction "Dude,i have a live octopus in my pants." man the funny the funny thing is that people have tried to steal things that way including live lobsters, some how that seems painful :laughing:.

Puddle speaks from personal experience. Unfortunately, his advice might not necessarily cross over between species too well. ^^;

And people try to steal live lobsters by putting them in their pants!? It hurts me just thinking about it. :ohnoes:

I guess that we wouldn't understand something from a bunnies point of view, or most animals. But it probably good advice for an animal. So i just thought of something random and it kind of early but are you going to do anything with Puddle for Easter? After all it does involve bunnies and rabbits.

And about the lobster thing, it was something that i heard someone did i really don't think anyone smart would do it, its a pretty painful thing to think about :laughing:.

Thanks! The bunny is modeled off of my own, so it's liking getting two compliments in one. Reading is unlikely, though; the bunny would probably just eat the book. :XD:
