I wish some of the women where I worked would dress like that.

Some of them, not all of them.

You haven't been in some of the workplaces I have. Some offices I've worked at some of the women come in dressed more for the club than the office. I guess it's because they're going clubbing after work, but still, they couldn't be bothered to bring a change of clothes?

^^Same as this - but I worked at a Goodyear tire factory, on the graveyard shift.  They were dressed ready for the club, in high heels sometimes, and all they were doing was standing around a tire factory all night...

I've never understood that.

A main door that opens outward, so that the hinge pins are on the outside where miscreants and evildoers can get at them, is a really bad idea.
Jeph obviously drew it like that, because a normal left-hinged, inward-opening front door would have hidden the (surprisingly sparsely-filled for a two-bookworm household) bookshelf, and eliminated the Chaucer joke. But yes, I don't think I've ever seen a front door that opened outwards.

A fine "brick joke" as someone pointed out earlier, and it's nice to see new-art Pizza Girl.

There are actually outward swinging doors that have hinges designed to not be able to open it by taking out the pins. Either by having irremovable pins or safety studs built into them. Safety studs interlock the two hinges together when the door is fully closed so that even without the pins, its impossible to remove the door.

Yes, this is related to my job and is why I know these things. >_>

There can only be two possible explanations for today's comic:

1. Penelope has a long lost twin, and that twin is really Pizza Girl.

2. Pen-Pen actually is Pizza Girl, but the Penny we've seen for years is actually a clone (or possibly an android) that had Penny's memories implanted into her, and she's been living for years assuming she's the real deal.

4. The "Pizza Girl" in that comic is in fact an automaton developed by Faye in secret to make Penelope, the true Pizza Girl, doubt her own memories as unbeknown to the rest of the cast, Faye is actually a supervillain.

I thought is was "Pizza Avenger" not "Pizza Girl"... or am I confusing her with the "Vespa Avenger"?

I've seen plenty of outward-facing front doors in Norway - something to do with not bringing the snow in to fall on the floor inside the house.  And who uses hinges with removable pins on normal doors?

I'm actually liking where this is going.

If Tai is open and honest with Marten, and I think she wants to be, this could be a good way of keeping the social circle together and convincing Marten that he needn't feel guilty or uncomfortable moving on.

Or it could be a unmitigated, hilarious disaster, with delicious drama to follow.

Either way, I'm down to watch.

"I'm inviting you as a courtesy*.  I'm inviting her because I want in her pants."

* having apparently somehow not figured out yet that Marten will accept almost any amount of mistreatment or rudeness, and in the unlikely event he does complain or otherwise attempt to stand up for himself, it's not hard to crush or simply ignore him.

Man, I remember the first party my former wife and I went to after we broke up!  We had been invited as a couple, and both decided there was no reason for us not to go; first wife arrives with new (well, not so new, actually) partner - mega uncomfortable evening as ex glares daggers at me whenever I'm visible (but civilisation was not destroyed).

Man, I remember the first party my former wife and I went to after we broke up!  We had been invited as a couple, and both decided there was no reason for us not to go; first wife arrives with new (well, not so new, actually) partner - mega uncomfortable evening as ex glares daggers at me whenever I'm visible (but civilisation was not destroyed).

This may be mega-awkward, but I don't think death-glares will be involved.  But the most awkward part isn't going to be Dora/Marten, it's going be watching Tai try to come on to Dora during the party (assuming Dora even accepts the invite).  After all, they're not a couple yet...

The body language makes it look like she was actually gonna ask permission, or at least make sure he's not too uncomfortable with the idea, which is a pretty mature move for someone like Tai.

Yeah, i've been to parties that have nearly died off until a Homicide occurs. Real ice breakers those.

Runner up has to be the "I'm Preggers" announcement to the whole party.

So, apparently Tai wants to set up some kind of closure between Dora and Marten on neutral-ish ground... At least that's how I read it. It's coherent with her being after Dora but unwanting to make her moves too soon.

At first, before panel 3, I thought she was finally starting to throw single college girls at Marten, like I supposed she would. With Dora around, it would be very awkward, but I don't rule it out either: we're speaking of Tai, after all.

Would be one heckuva kick in the teeth to Tai if Dora asked if she could bring HER new "friend" along, or just shows up on said "friend"s (a guy of course) arm.

We keep gaming this scenario out and Ziggy says that there's an 86% probability that Tai's going to get hurt.

Surprisingly, Dora isn't far behind with a 57% heartache rating, and Marten is only running about 13%, just slightly more than Pintsize (who has no heart)

All I know is that if a girl broke up with me because she was claimed she was too neurotic for a relationship to work... then started dating again after not a whole lot of time, I would not be in my happy place.

I'm really hoping Dora just lets Tai down gently. Trainwrecks are kind of awesome, but for once I'd like to see someone avoid one in the strip.

This could actually be cool, especially if Tai can finish up that "hey I uh would kind of like to date Dora, bro, I hope that's cool" line that Marten interrupted with his dumbassery

Tentative bro fist, Tai, keep doing the right thing

"I'm going to try to seduce the woman you recently broke up with, in front of you, at a party I invited you to" is doing the right thing?!

If she's going to do that, the right thing to do is, in fact, to warn Marten that she's gonna do that

I think Tai might get her heart broken because lol Dora and lol Tai's romantic pedestal, but she's being honest with Marten about wanting to bone his ex, and if he thinks that seeing that will be Too Awkward he can go have scrabble night with Hanners or something

Or he can bring Steve and they can get drunk and confirm theories of Padma's Or he might meet a hot young college girl and have a fling

Or hell maybe he'll run into Raven

...and then invite him along to watch?  Not cool, Tai (well, not cool going after your colleague's ex like that, especially when you've said you couldn't).

I'm not entirely sure why Tai would need to invite Martin, especially if she intends to invite Dora. I can't think of any social convention where Tai would need to invite Martin in order to invite Dora too. She could have just invited Dora and bypassed the need for Martin to go.

I think it's something  along the line of:

1) Martin is my friend.
2) IF I go to a party it would be bad manners NOT inviting him.
3) So I invite him, BUT I warn him that things might get awkward.

Now it's up to Martin to accept the awkwardness, or decline the invitation.
