What?  This is classic  sitcom material!

PTHBT!

Jeph doesn't have a laugh track.

As for dangling a foot, really not the case. I didn't think that it contravened forum etiquette, but have taken on board the feedback of elder and wiser heads and already remove the offending material. You can be assured that I will avoid crossing that line in the future as best I can.

Thank you; but please don't feel too  chastened.  After all, I didn't even consider peremptorily removing it myself :-)

in my opinion, which holds precisely zero administrative authority, leave 'offending material'. If nothing else, some other reader further down the line can draw a better idea of where you stepped on your reproductive organs, and possibly avoid foot-related damage to their own genitals...

Re: bra
« Reply #153 on: 14 Dec 2010, 14:11 »

I bet the bra has been eaten by the green fluffy alien in the corner.

Now that makes sense - in an odd sort of way.

The more I look at it, the more suspicious that damn shrub looks—kind of like the kite-eating tree from Peanuts. Doesn't help that it's more or less center-stage. But we've talking little robots wreaking havoc and superhero delvery people, so, bra-devouring houseplants?
Why not?

Faye can defend herself; she's punched him to the floor twice, if I remember right.
But playfully, yes?

Scenario:  

Faye and Marten drink and talk the rest of the night away, and both pass out on the couch, Marten leaning against Faye.  Ms. Reed shows up, having taken a cab from the airport, and arrives to find her son's head nestled between Faye's bosoms.  

"Well, I see you've moved on already.  I'll just leave you two alone..."

What?  This is classic  sitcom material!

So that's why I never watch those anymore. Because somebody's got to have temporarily removed their brain to make the plot go. Darned brain-removing sitcoms…

If I were Faye I'd start lookin for a "trophy closet."

Sounds about right...

I think if I owned one, I'd disable things like the wifi connection, or maybe the whole ethernet card.  Makes you wonder how much of the breakup fight wound up out there...

The first strip compared Pintsize to a family pet, but the family pet doesn't blab online.

I would only expect to be considering this in situations when the same material was being brought round repeatedly in spite of warnings. But I would hope to have sufficient control to prevent that point being approached again.

Or in the case of extreme  inappropriate material.  On the stream of Jeph's drawing the current comic this morning (my time), there was a troll logging in to deliver personal insults to him, who kept coming back with a new login each time Jeph blocked him and deleted his messages.  He was very persistent, and it seemed to me to happen enough times to delay the production of the comic.  I can assure you that there would have been no value whatever in preserving the messages in that case!

If I were Faye I'd start lookin for a "trophy closet."

Hilarity ensues when her garments KEEP disappearing there, Angus is about to be strung up by his (entrails?) but then we discover Pintsize somehow got Angus' couch (or creepy houseplant) to "collect" them... earning Pintsize enough creepiness points to trigger Faye's uberwrath upon him.

This strip is kind of bugging me.

I am a rather well-endowed woman.  Now, I can believe that in the heat of the makeouts, someone could take my bra off without me noticing at the time, or I could do it and not pay attention.  However, what I can't believe is that it would be done *leaving my shirt where it is*.

Hm.

I just realized that I read the character's lines in different voices now that the art has changed. I used to think of Faye as using a higher pitched, almost squeaky voice. Now it's a bit huskier, more timbre to it. Dora also changed, but I'm having a harder time finding the words to say how.

Marten's the only one who I think of using the same voice continuously.

I hear ya man, I used to read the early Hannelore with a low, "smokers" voice; kind of hoarse and scratchy, but not gross. Now, I read her as kind of "chirpy" or squeaky, with a note of tiredness.

For me, the hard part of reading the old comics is seeing Faye rail-thin! And then seeing her become more and more curvaceous while having to remember that she IS curvy even while skinny but she's skinny but I have to remember that she's NOT skinny and- Oh Lord I've gone cross-eyed. @[email protected]

Both my wife and my older daughter are well endowed.  They (and my other daughter) have the incredible ability to remove their bras while not disturbing their shirts.  I understand it doesn't really take all that much practice, but the effect is rather like a magic trick. 

The only problem is finding them piled with the kicked-off shoes in the corner of the kitchen.  For my daugher, it's the first thing off when she gets home from work!

My Even Better Missing Bra TheoryTM:  This strip is the beginning of a buildup to a Wapsi Square crossover.  Monica *poited* the bra by accident while trying to *poit* her own bra (very similar in size to Faye's, for those not familiar with the character) somewhere.  While trying to correct this, Monica will not get the teleport's return coordinates quite right, Faye's bra will reappear about a foot over her head and soft-land.  Hilarity ensues.

Okay, maybe I'd better rename this the Wild-Ass Theory That Involves Things From Outside of QCTM.

In vino veritas.  In other words, is it worse than Marten said this now or that he always thought it but kept it to himself?

Either way, does making a move on someone warrant getting punched?  If she had simply let him fall when he tried that it'd be one thing, but that violence was uncalled for, even for Faye.

If Pintsize ever ssh'd into Momo, the most likely thing he would make her do is downloading Marigold's porn she undoubtedly has on her computer to him.

Why would he do that when a lot of it was already his?

Also, yay, first post. The registration worked this time.

Well, considering she is just comig from a make-out session with her boyfriend, she may have felt more than a little disturbed.

I think Marten is fortunate to have a friend like Faye in this situation.  She knocked him out before his drunken bitterness could turn into anything worse.

He's not fortunate, however, for how much worse his hangover will probably be.

She may have knocked him out because she's worried that he's right.  I'm not saying that he is right, or even that he'll think so when he wakes up, but it's probably something that she's considered.

She may have gone with good intentions, but she really did not handle that well.

The probably worst thing is that he might not remember anything he has said the next day. I hate when that happens.  :psyduck:

Well, that would provide something to talk about in her next therapy session. That means we might see Dr. Corinne again. Yay!

Can't really blame her. This is the first, the very first time Marten has ever A) Expressed anger/resentment towards her right to her face, and B) tried to come onto her. This is probably a situation she never thought she'd be in, so when she's unexpectedly thrown into it, she automatically goes to her default response, which, though she hasn't used in awhile, is still pretty deeply ingrained.

Well, Marten's not so drunk that he can't get up off the couch/teleport onto Faye's shoulder, but he's drunk enough to possibly ruin his relationship with one of his closest friends. That's a very specific level of drunk, and unfortunately Faye walked in at what was obviously the wrong time in hindsight. She's almost certainly right about Marten not remembering this tomorrow, but I worry about the other half of what she said.

It's basically set in stone that Faye is over Marten and is really, truly with Angus. The problem is, if her now-single roommate is going to sexually harass her when he gets drunk (and Marten will probably get drunk more often now that Dora's not giving him a reason not to) then it's going to be very uncomfortable living with him. And when you consider the reason she went home, cutting short the makeup session, was to check up on him, I imagine that she might be spending a lot more time over at Angus's.

We might actually see the location of the comic trend towards over there anyway. More of the cast is hanging out over there than any place other than coffee of doom.

Edit:
Also, re-reading the comic again, Marten is an even bigger dick than I realized the first time through. Him taking full credit for her recovery, when she's worked hard to go through therapy and take chances all on her own, and then bringing up Sven. I'm pretty sure bringing up Sven around Faye is an automatic penalty, even without the context he added in. Then, he calls her boyfriend a dick and throws out one of the douchiest, most pathetic come on lines I can think of.

I think bourbon, or any other alcohol in large quantities, should now be off limits. If Faye is willing to forgive him for what he's said, then she gets the right to keep it from happening again.

I think she knocked him out because he was about to do something [Dr.Cox]RE-he-HE-he-HE-hea-LLY[/Dr.Cox] stupid.

I'm not sure how you can handle a situation like that at all.

(Ok, maybe it wasn't a great idea to spend several hours making out with Angus before making sure that Marten wasn't going to go out of control, but is that really her responsibility?)

Can't really blame her. This is the first, the very first time Marten has ever A) Expressed anger/resentment towards her right to her face, and B) tried to come onto her.

He didn't just try to come on to her, He was like trying to grab her... That wasn't an irrational emotional defense mechanism, that was self-defense.
