People, I know you aren't stoked of the thought of Dale working at Coffin of Doom, but you're missing the point:
Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!

That actually would make sense.
 Dora to say no but SB is in need of someone to do deliveries and help at the counter.
That way we would see more of him without him actually working at CoD, and his car would smell of fresh roasted beans and baked goods and that beats the hodgepodge of stale pizza toppings and grease any day of the year except for maybe Robbi Burns Birthday.
Come to think of it, a lot of the jobs I got in an earlier life were the result of someone I knew at a place I was applying to, telling me of one somewhere else where they knew a manager/owner.

All of them working together on the burning giant blender thing.

I guess Renee could cope with that. As far as we know Faye is as cranky as Renee.

I don't think Dale would fit in at CoD. He just gets to meet Marigold. It's going to be interesting to see how exactly the peace offering worked out.

I for one am looking forward to seeing more of Dale, and even more so Dale/Marigold if it happens. The "Dale is creepy" faction are just intolerant, or much worse observers of human nature than JJ.  Dale is just clueless and over-enthusiastic about things -- an overgrown fourteen-yearold, in fact.

I'm going to avoid rehashing the entire creepy!|notcreepy! Dale argument again, and instead say that no matter which side of the fence, you're right about him being clueless, overenthused, and immature.

Perhaps his glasses are similar to that Google Glass thing that was in the new not too long ago.   He's got GPS/Smart-Phone/Game Status updates piped right to his face... he can see out but we can't see in.

We'll see,  hopefully Jeph explains it at some point.

But I don't see any of the usual suspects being quite experienced enough to carry out the duties of the day-shift manager of tSB or whatever title would best describe Padma's job. Faye possibly, but I doubt she is interested at this time with all the sculpting and such. HannerMom might like to see her daughter try out small time management, but I'm not sure Hanners would enjoy it? She might be a natural though (aided by generous amount of ativan)?

I don't quite understand the ongooing Daaaleeeeing. Was it not Dale who gave the word DAAANG to QC? Ok, may be it was Dale1.0?

I don't understand the Dale hate... he's been shown to have ties to other characters than just Marigold, having him closer to the inner circle strengthens his character development opportunities, adding an employee would allow Dora to actually grow her business (should she decide to go after the wholesale coffee market with her best-we-know-of coffee in *hampton).

It feels like a story line that wants telling about a compelling character, looking forward to seeing where this goes.

The thing is, he isn't a compelling character yet.  He's that guy who delivers pizza, is a good enough CoD customer to get secret menu privileges, and may or may not act in a creepy manner toward Marigold.  And he takes video games way too seriously.

Have I missed anything, or is that pretty much the sum total of what we know about Dale?

Not to say that I think this is a bad thing.  Note the qualifier 'yet' in my first sentence.  I think this is a great chance for Jeph to actually give Dale some characterization beyond being a weirdo game shut-in who acts questionable creepy toward another weirdo gamer shut-in.  The fact that he wants out of pizza delivery can be the start of some excellent character development, and Dale needs it.

I can see Dale getting hired. I'd like to see a lot more characterization from him as well. We need another male character to get some more -positive- points upon him. As from what I've seen, many of the males introduced or became more regular in the past year or two have managed to get a bad rep, and somehow have managed to get some kind of unforgivable hate towards them.

... Either you guys's coffee shops have really short hours or you work like, 80 hours a week. Because where I'm from 5 people with 2 on a shift (which we've seen almost constantly, 1 person on a shift at coffee of doom is the exception not the rule, hell 2 people plus Dora there isn't uncommon) would be working crazy hours to keep a coffee shop open. Keep in mind that Dora has to come in early on the mornings and roast coffee, and Hanners iirc is only part time.

Then again, maybe I'm just used to coffee shops in a college town where the bars close at 2am and coffee shops are open later to catch the too drunk to drive home yet crowd. And you have to be open early enough to grab the people going in to work.

The idea that there isn't room for another person is a bit weird to me. I always wondered how she ran it with so few when there were always two people on shift for most hours (which makes sense fictionwise because its hard to have interesting work conversations without coworkers)

Well I think CoD didn't get too many customers before they got that write up in the local alternative rag paper or whatever. Which is when she decided to hire more employees.

I really suspect that Dora will turn Dale down in the next strip. I'm looking forward to potentially seeing more of him, though; I'd like to have more guys to ogle in QC.

Also, I think whether he and Marigold eventually have a romantic thing or not, there's an opportunity there for Marigold to get a new friend who maybe has more in common with her, which could be a healthy development, depending.

In his last major appearance (#2357) he mentioned that he had several other jobs besides delivering pizza (busing tables, walking dogs). So unless he's thinking of quitting all of those as well, he'd only be part-time at CoD.

I agree that Dale needs more characterisation if he's going to become a more regular character. He also needs more to do than just be that guy who seems to spend most of his time annoying Marigold. I'm not sure that joining the CoD staff is the best way to do that though. After all when was the last time we saw Cosette or Penelope? Or Raven?

I think he won't be hired, but he'll be hanging around just long enough to run into a slightly smelly, bed-rumpled Marigold as she gets her "morning" coffee. 

Whereupon they will both embarrass themselves and each other with their bizarre flirting rituals, purple pants and glowing glasses.

This ^. Now that you've explained it, I don't see how anything else can happen. It's dramatically necessary.  8-)

The Secret Bakery lost an employee recently.

And this ^. That'd be the perfect solution: CoD stays all-female, SB gets back up to full complement, Dale's car smells better (or at least different), and we get to see Dale more because CoD and SB already have a business arrangement (the coffee-for-pastries deal).

I'm still confused. Is there some connection between A Clockwork Orange and pizza?

Well, according to that Wikipedia link, the main character of the film is "a charismatic, sociopathic delinquent whose interests include classical music (especially Beethoven), rape, and what is termed 'ultra-violence'." We already know Dale likes to play WoW in a fairly violent manner; throw in a liking for Beethoven, and...?

At least, that's my interpretation of what K1dmor meant with that Clockwork Orange link, but I could certainly be wrong. Or Truec might be correct about it being an Evangelion reference instead.

I'll throw up a third theory, just to confuse you. I'd guessed that Akima was merely suggesting (someone obliquely) that Dale might go deaf if Hanners keeps screaming next to him like that. Your theories are clever, though.

I was reminded of a scene from my childhood.

 The "Ode to Joy", composed by Beethoven, is a popular song that you could hear playing in the TV series of Evangelion (not the manga).

 Also, one of the charactes (Guendo Ikari) looks a lot like Dale (or the other way around) and his glasses are shining most of the time too.

The "Ode to Joy", composed by Beethoven, is a popular song that you could hear playing in the TV series of Evangelion (not the manga).

But it is still mentioned in the manga (when Shinji meets Kaworu the first time, he is sitting at a piano playing a tune he'd heard, and asks Shinji what it is - it's the Ode to Joy).

But honestly, Gendou glasses or no, it's easier to make the Beethoven link to Clockwork Orange than to Evangelion.

I thought Raven was in college studying physics and that's why she doesn't work at CoD anymore. I know Jeph brought her back for a summer job, but college could have started again by now.
Hopefully we get to see more of Penelope again some time, I really like her. I have the feeling that characters become sort of boring to write when in a happy relationship, so they appear less (Penelope+Wil, Steve+Cosette). I guess I can understand that a little, but I still miss Penelope. And Wil was fun, too.

Exactly so. I had in mind the aversion therapy/brainwashing scene from "A Clockwork Orange" with the stench of pizza standing in for the drugs used on Alex.

This seems to be the case. "Bros, bros, bros!"

Hmm. Something doesn't fit. The bros also vanish immediately after having served their purpose. May be in the comic quantum physics the principle is: what has been seen/observed can also be unseen?
