Basically, shipping Marten and Hannelore is a waste of time; heck, shipping Hannelore and ANYONE is a waste of time, her issues simply preclude her having a full romantic and sexual relationship. And yeah, the mods kinda frown on it anyway.

Have you ever heard of asexuality? It's honestly kind of offensive that this is the attitude you take to relationships - "nobody can have meaningful relationships unless sex". Hey, if you need intimate contact in your relationships, that's cool - but to say that that's a prerequisite for all relationships is just ignorant.

However, in the specific context of shipping, do you ever see non-sexual pairings?  Really?

That's what makes them creepy.

I wonder whether Emily's brain works kind of like Jeph's.

I still think she's a tribute to Osaka...her last name is another tip of the hat.

That and the names....    Mannerlor?   Han-Tai?    Farten?
Oh boy, comedy material! Let's see...

Mannerlor: A type of fishing lure designed exclusively for the manliest of fishermen.

Han-tai: A Mai-tai, but stylized to resemble Han Solo.

Farten: ......I'm not going there.

Library weirdness:
I go to the photocopy section.
There are separate stalls for each one of the 5 machines.
I hear giggling from the stall next to mine. I can't quite hold my curiosity. I climb on the chair to see over the stall wall, and there they are.
A couple of girls are using it to take "pics" of their asses and breasts.
They bothered to tell me why. Someone forgot their photocopy machine card inserted in the slot, and they thought that would be a funny way to use it.
That was quite a LOL.

I used to know someone who was a librarian, and he had plenty of stories of library weirdness.

1. The time someone snuck a box of Cheerios into the library, took it into the bathroom, scattered most of the contents on the floor, defecated into the box and set it on fire.

2. The time a severely unwashed man came to the desk asking if there were any books on how he could learn how to have sex for money.

3. The dude who brought a globe up to the reference desk and asked them to point out which countries were "with us."

4. The massive fight that erupted between two groups of kids in the children's section, resulting in a wooden mancala board being split in two.

Emily's laughing kinda reminds me of Hannelore's "EEEE"ing. I think it's Marten coming in from off panel is like Penelope in the last panel.

I also love this strip, Jeph has been expanding his drawing subjects lately and I love him for it.

This is a further note in Emily's "that gurl jest ain't right" file.  And a great lead-in for my movie idea, Arm-y of Dorkness.  The visualization is one that I might even come up with -- but the hysterical laughter?  I'd have to be at least four beers into a party to laugh like that.. 

Marten really should have acknowledged the pun, even if only with a visible wince; he's been guilty of the pun himself.  The beauty of a pun is in the "oy" of the beholder...

Apparently the "Ferret" was an APC used by the UK during the Cold War...so you've got the right idea. Just not fuzzy enough.

It crossed over from being "amusingly terrifying" to "dark and horrible" the moment I imagined it speaking in one of the many varied regional accents of the UK.

That said,   sounds like she needs to make it go VOOM.   4,000 volts should do it.

I never have dreams like that.

Apparently to have such a dream you'd have to go without sex for an extended period of time. Probably weeks at least, maybe months. And I'm guessing you're not supposed to jerk off either. But that's an experiment I'm unwilling to undertake, so I couldn't tell you for sure.

If that were true I would have been having nightmares of being assaulted by my own genitalia repeatedly for the past few years.

Unless, of course, as you said, self-stimulation fights it off.  Then my genitals would be so pacifist they'd make the Dalai Lama seem like a boozed-up soccer hooligan.
