The Fox And The Hound…Are Doing It

Bucket-Bat: The NEW sport that’s taking the world by storm!

Bucket-bat was invented by our own, Sale Jovic in protest to the overpaid and overly glorified players of Major League Baseball (but really, because the World Series keeps playing on FOX instead ofย  new Family Guy episodes). Regardless of his reasons, Bucket-bat is here!

The Game (btw, I just lost the Game ๐Ÿ™‚ ) is simple to understand. First, get a bat and a bucket (both must be league approved) and find at least one friend (preferably one that you don’t like but likes you). Now, take turns having one player wearing the bucket and the other using the bat. Only the player holding the bat can score runs.

To score a run, you must make your opponent do anything of these things:

*Fall down
*Flinch before the strike
*Wet their pants
*Bleed through the bucket, not out the bottom (this is known as a Grand Slam)

Each player’s turn with the bat allows them three strikes and then their turn is over. Hitting each other with the bat anywhere but the bucket, while hilarious, is illegal and will end your turn. There are nine innings in a league game of Bucket-bat (but no one ever gets that far).

Now, get out there and play!

**Disclaimer: Bucket-bat should not be played by anyone at anytime and, though not every Country’s courts have offically ruled on Bucket-bat, it would undoubtedly be illegal in all of them…except Serbia.**

I’m even working on a song:

Cause it’s One, Two, Three Strikes You’re Out…for about a week.

Hahaha ok I am being genuine when I say that this is the best project I have ever been a part of in my life. I remembered that this episode got written a couple of weeks ago, but reading it now just made me laugh out loud. Sale… amazing work with Bucket-Bat. I completely approve. And Jordan, I expect the song for Bucket-Bat to be finished by the end of the week. GO!


Ok Josh, here is the official Bucket-bat theme song:

Take them out with a baseball bat
Take them out with a clang
Buy me some insurance that covers head injuries
I don’t care if I ever wake up
So go smash, smash, smash your buddy’s brains in
If they don’t survive it’s a shame
Cause it’s 1, 2, 3 strikes you’re out cold
At the bucket-bat game

Boom, song written! I could also see a bucket-bat theme song set to the melody of, “we will rock you” by Queen.

HAHAHA awesome comic guys… I love how the comments evolved into more about bucket bat than the whole half fox half human sex thing… Also the last panel is priceless and I hope Colleen gets the Meme to take off ๐Ÿ™‚

Yeah, I spent hours (ok, who am I kidding, minutes) of my time writing this episode, crafting each line of dialog to play perfectly off the next. Then Sale comes along and adds in a picture of Jordan wearing a bucket on his head and BOOM, that’s all you people want to talk about…for shame!

Ok, few more rules for Bucket-bat:

*Wearing a cup, although it might seem like a wise idea, is strictly forbidden and will incur a penalty!
*You can NOT write down your scores to help keep track of who is winning, part of the fun is trying to remember while the imaginary birds are pecking at your head.
*Brilliant puns, thought up on the fly immediately after striking your opponent earns double points! Planning out your puns or telling a bad pun will incur a penalty!
*Entrance into the Bucket-Bat Hall of Fame REQUIRES that you challenge AND defeat a member of the cast of the late 80’s classic “The Golden Girls”. But God help you go up against Betty White…
*The Bucket-Bat Drinking Game is NOT survivable.
*Do not taunt Bucket-Bat
*If you call your shot and you happen to actually knock your opponents head off in the direction you are pointing, make sure you have a camera rolling…cause you’ve got You Tube gold, my friend.
*Playing your turn as Batter and then chickening out when it’s your turn to “catch” will incur a penalty!

**Incurring a penalty in Bucket-Bat forces you to play more Bucket-Bat.


It’s so true! Why are those crappy webcomics getting more attention then some of those highquality ones out there (wink wink).

I understand that it takes all kinds and all but I don’t get sexuality as a draw for a webcomic. Of course, I really don’t understand a lot of things that happen on the internet. Like the term “Dougy”, I don’t know what it is and I don’t want to know.

Btw, really dig the newest episode of your comic, Actually, I’ve enjoyed all of your comics so far ๐Ÿ™‚

Boom! Comment Plug!

haha, great song. although with Josh’s guns, out for a month might be more like it.
Totally with you guys on the sexy half fox half human and the occasional steamy half feline half human hybrid webcomics which I myself do not read and happen to know nothing about…
