Layer man. New layer, Remove layer, COMBINE LAYERS.

Your printer is low on cyan ink. Please replace the cyan cartridge to continue printing in black and white.

u/Dizzyarnold 27d ago

Would he have to drink the ink or have to insert it somewhere into his body?

2

u/Kalersays 2d ago

Yes, obviously.

u/Dizzyarnold 2d ago

I see, thanks for clearing that up 😄

u/CedarWolf 27d ago

COMBINE LAYERS.

All of the Furries would rejoice at this new development, and all of the rest of y'all would have to get used to a lot of fox people, wolf people, and cat people running around.

As a side benefit, that would probably deeply reduce racism, homophobia, and transphobia, because all of the bigots would have a new 'affront to God' to whine about.

u/TobiasAmaranth 27d ago

Meanwhile I was just thinking about it taking off clothes with one click, or merging clothes onto the skin. Or removing the skin.

u/Afraid-Milk6614 27d ago

nah the new furry would probaly just look like the aftermath of a bone randomizer tool in gmod that or i don't know how the layers tool work

5

u/toastycheeze 27d ago

Layer man is just a multiverse hero.

u/thedarkhaze 28d ago

It'll be wild when Lasso Man goes against Copy and Paste and he lasso's the eyes of Copy and Paste just like continually spawns Copy's eyes over and over.

u/NUGFLUFF 27d ago

I like the way you think

11

u/theitalianguy 27d ago

Not scarier than Mr. Undo

11

u/Fuck_You_Downvote 27d ago

I was thinking about that.

He just tortures people over and over again, like jigsaw but forever.

Is this real, is this … now? So many lives I have lived, am I better, am I stronger, am I … me?

7

u/Brendogfox 27d ago

Mr. Undo isn't scariest when he takes away the pain... his greatest work is undoing the things we worked hard for and love.

"That's quite a beautiful family you have..."

[clicks Undo]

I love it how you found inspiration in tools you use on a daily basis. It's like "how did I not see this before", but different.

u/my__name__is 28d ago

I thought it was going for an existential dred of having to live with a hundred versions of yourself. Now that they plowed the field, who is going to plow the wife?

186

u/Southern-Wafer-6375 28d ago

All of them at once

92

u/insane_contin 28d ago

Just like in her fantasies.

39

u/wind4air 28d ago

She'll finally reach half way

23

u/Cumming_squirrel 27d ago

Can't they just plow each other and let the wife watch?

14

u/Southern-Wafer-6375 27d ago

Also an option

u/Youcancuntonme 27d ago

They're going to plow each other and a third wheel is for wife

u/jecowa 28d ago

I thought they were going to copy-paste the crops, not the farmers.

540

u/Anonymous_Gamer939 28d ago

Why, so the farmer could have even more crops that he can't take care of or harvest? This is like "I can't afford to take care of my kid, so I'm going to have 3 more"

229

u/jecowa 28d ago

Harvest one plant normally. Then copy the harvested plant and paste it over the unharvested plants. Then copy and paste the harvested fruit the same number of times you pasted the harvested plant.

335

u/LastPlaceComics 28d ago

The lore that was cut from this comic was Copy and Paste are both irresponsible with the way they use their powers and cut always has to clean up the mess.

113

u/ExpeditingPermits 28d ago

Cutting people into pieces is a terrible way to clean them.

88

u/insane_contin 28d ago

But it makes for a great fertilizer. Which is a great thing for a farm.

Copy and paste the farmer when it's planting and harvest season. The survivor of the cutting gets to be the lone farmer for that season.

28

u/ExpeditingPermits 28d ago

Finally. Someone is thinking about the next harvest!

7

u/PKMNTrainerMark 27d ago

Paint Bucket Man can clean up those unsightly red spots.

11

u/stonno45 27d ago

Cut seems to enjoy having to clean up their mess

5

u/Ok_Butterscotch54 27d ago

That's the scary part.

8

u/Fun-Dragonfly-6106 28d ago

Does cut leave no trace then?

7

u/lol_JustKidding 27d ago

What happens to all the farmers that got cut? Where do they get pasted back? They'll remain forever in the clipboard.

5

u/certifiedblackman 28d ago

I now want a sequel in the distant future where Cut has gone mad, and Paste is frantically trying to save all of her victims.

2

u/NOTdavie53 27d ago

The lore that was what now?

28

u/BarelyContainedChaos 28d ago

you're forgetting that CUT likes to cut people. copy/paste must oblige to her demands or meet the same fate

11

u/ThomasHoidnFest 28d ago

If it works like kids the farmer could force the older crops to harvest the younger ones and give them responsibilities they are not ready for. Those plants would be fucked up from their youth for a long time, but the farmer would manage. :)

11

u/ElPapo131 28d ago

When he said "I don't have enough hands" I assumed they would copy and paste his arms a lot of times and make him into a monster

u/jecowa 28d ago

I thought the three were siblings.

106

u/blue4029 28d ago

plot twist: they dont actually know who cut is.

they're just left wondering why their copies keep mysteriously disappearing

39

u/Procrastinator78 27d ago

Watch copy and paste merge into one being to create cut when the job is done.

7

u/ZXVIV 27d ago

Paste keeps wondering why he sometimes creates things that Copy made copies of a long time ago instead of what he copied more recently

u/Bentman343 28d ago

Two brothers and their insane sister

u/Icy_Redditor777 28d ago

Or a poly relationship, paste does put back what cut removes after all

3

u/SoshJam 28d ago

definitely the latter

72

u/buzzdady 28d ago

Waiting for the big reveal of the mysterious background figure inviting them all to go up against lasso man or another threat. Hyped!

38

u/ChocolateShot150 28d ago

I’m pretty sure it IS lasso man in the background based on the haircut, they were in the background of the last one too

15

u/buzzdady 28d ago

Oh shit you’re right- same hair bumps

3

u/AstroMackem 27d ago

What is this? Some kind of photoshop suicide squad?

u/PKMNTrainerMark 27d ago

More of a murder squad so far.

u/BROHONKY 28d ago

IS EVERY SUPER HERO IN THIS UNIVERSE HIDING SOME DARK SECRET???

73

u/Just_an_old_feller 28d ago

Yes, just like Photoshop

19

u/Totalllynotmeovo 27d ago

Photoshop killed my son, he kidnapped him, tied him up in a basement and tortured him to death, having me strapped to a chair, forcing me to watch. All I did was use Canva for a while because I got a new computer and forgot which email I used for it. They say I only have 3 days left to live. They've already killed the rest of my family, and soon I will be gone too.

28

u/GIORNO-phone11-pro 28d ago

Execute order CTRL + X

15

u/ChocolateShot150 28d ago

Sir you can’t keep making me (and your characters) live through these traumatic experiences without compensation

Also lasso man is in the background of slide 1, that’s twice he’s been in the background

DON'T LOSE YOUR WAY

7

u/RexitYostuff 28d ago

Of this saga, this has got to be my favorite. Of course, there would be a Cut, it only makes sense. It has the logical outcome and the surreal superhero wackyness perfectly balanced.

6

u/Miserable-Lemon-3263 28d ago

Kinda wish there was one more panel but other than that great

6

u/CinderP200 28d ago

copy and paste seem like actual good guys this time around

maybe scissors girl is just their evil sister

3

u/NonMeritRewards 27d ago

Copy and paste used their powers irresponsibly. Instead of copy and pasting the crops some already harvested, they copied and pasted the farmer. Having over a dozen of your ownselfs sounds nice but... well there's a lot tv tropes on how it can go horribly wrong.

Cut is sorta of the Anti-Villian. Good intentions, but horrifying execution. (EX. I'll save nature by sacrificing every human.)

she's not scissors girl, she's cut

I thought for sure this farmer's wife was in for the time of her life.

2

u/CluelessFlunky 28d ago

I thought it was gonna lead to existential dread about who the real one is

2

u/insertrandomnameXD 27d ago

Well i just use cut and paste most of the time so i just kill the original and leave the clones instead

2

u/benjer3 27d ago

Cut traps their victims in a quasi-existential pergatory. Meanwhile, Del is a merciful angel of death.

u/WiSoSirius 27d ago

CTRL+Z

Then come spring, Windows + V and select the previous paste.

Honestly i think copy and paste were the only heros so far that legit have a good heart and want ro help, despite being irresponsible. And Cut seems a bit spicy and too eager to kill for me to actually trust

(Also question, will the last thing Cut cutted be connected to paste where they can paste that cutted object?)

Your art, storyline, and templates have now been incorporated by Reddit, and resold to the AI algorithm.

You might get some fleeting internet views now, but you've given ownership to some fucks, I mean folks that will use this for the next 400 years. And charge you for it!
