WHERE IS ANGUS

Emily is officially the most adorkable character on QC.

From the last strip: Claire is hot, if only because of her hair! Yeah I got a thing for redheads, so sue me.

Love Marten's expression. The Infectious Muskrat Chant takes hold of his friends and he's all like "wat". And he looks oh-so-stylin' with that pool noodle. NOT.

They don't seem that deep as they can stand there. They also might be staying low because standing up more is very cold after a swim.(more contact with air)

It's possible.  But sometimes I'll keep a pool noodle under my arms and float around for a while because it relaxes my shoulders, and I'm a decent swimmer.

Don't risk even that much in a river. If it's a particularly swift one, like coming down from a mountain, don't get in over your knees.

And watch out for dragonfly larvae.

I would also swim off towards a muskrat repeating its name excitedly if I saw one, so I'm glad that both Faye and Angus did too. I got super excited every time I saw a groundhog or a chipmunk this summer!

Yes, good point. In fact, during the recent London Olympics, after listening to the radio each morning, the internet became the only way I was able to reassure myself that London wasn't hosting a swimming festival.

Confession: I am a pretty terrible swimmer. I did get some kind of water safety certificate at school, but looking back at it, I wonder if they gave it to me out of pity. I barely made the 50m (or 100m or whatever it was) I was supposed to swim. It's not like I would drown if you threw me in a lake, but my swim style is terrible and my hips tend to sink. So if I was at a party like that, I would definitely be relaxing on one of those noodles.

On the other hand, my partner is a fantastic swimmer, but she would probably be floating on one of those things as well (at least some of the time, anyway) because she's already done her exercise that morning, damn it, and parties are just for relaxing.

Oh and, uh, I think you accidentally put the last sentence behind the spoiler tag instead of that photo. Blerg.

Edit: now that I've said all this, the next comic will feature Marten confessing that he's not much of a swimmer, and I'll feel silly.

Christ what do you people have against floating leisurely? Haven't you guys ever heard of an inner tube? Or are those also for pussies?

EDIT: Nevermind it's been covered. But still, I really don't see why it's so unbelievable. I didn't even give it a second thought.

Me, I just thought, pool noodles are funny.
And if I wanted to pick a nit, I'd say Marten's noodle (snerk) appears to be above the surface of the water, held in place by his arms. Maybe he's standing on a snapping turtle, or a muskrat. This just makes it funnier to me.

Heh. Pool noodle.
