Drunken shenanigans, big mistakes and pillow talk by Henry and Maurice.

There is possibly, just slightly possibly, a chance of a combination of "Claire's awkward moments" and "someone hits on Marten".
But then again, I don't really know how real life would work in these situations until after Jeph has drawn it. :P

It took the finest minds in both Penny Arcade and LoadingReadyRun to come up with that title. :P

I could ask so many questions about this one. Did Henry and Veronica write that together? Did Maurice and Marten lend a helping hand? Are they actually seriously considering doing this at the reception and trusting that their friends, knowing each other's character, will get the joke? Where's Claire, and what does she think of this aspect of Marten's family dynamics?

But actually, I don't want answers to any of those questions. There don't have to be answers. This can just be a sublimely silly moment in the comic. :)

Yesterday I found out that one of the characters of my favourite childhood anime (a 7 year old girl) is, canonically, born 1989. That makes her older than me. And the anime is still running. And she is still 7.

You know you're old, when rather than finding all of your friends are getting married, you find that they're all getting divorced (or having affairs), and occasionally dying. :-(

I think Veronica's previous speech was better, but we were never going to see that in action, it would have just been repetition.  Of course, there's plenty of time for her to get really hammered, and then do a more authentic slightly off script rendition. :-D

Yeah...though in some ways it only shows that she isn't a total bitch to everyone, just her son when he was at a low point. This does rehabilitate her, but the aforementioned incident still sticks in my craw.
