So basically Sven is dead, right?  That's Monday's comic.  Sven's memorial service.

I'm failing to come up with some way she could have tampered with his bathroom supplies such that parts of him are now dyed chartreuse.

Sven's actually in the basement, gagged and tied to a chair, before Dora comes down and does her impression of Mr. Blonde.

Faye and Dale are going to be wondering why the hell Stealer Wheeler's "Stuck in the Middle with You" is blaring from the basement.

Either that or the Sven is about to develop severe arachnophobia.

Average level of WoW-player hygiene?  Or, rather, lack thereof.

It's a well-worn joke, especially since Southpark did the "Make Love, Not Warcraft" episode, but I play and my personal hygiene has never suffered.

And empty both jars into KM's snack fund box. It's for the children you monsters.

I think Dora's going to be fucking livid with Faye for NOT telling her about this. Therapy or no, Dora doesn't exactly do well with the concept of someone keeping or withholding things from her.

If my best friend was keeping something that my sibling had done from me on this scale I'd be pretty upset. Not saying she's in the right... but I know how I'd feel.

On what scale? Are "true love confessions" a big thing now? 'Cause otherwise he's just being an oblivious, self-centred man-child, aka business as usual.

Sven was an ass, Faye handled it. She's a big girl, she doesn't need to go running to his sister about it. Especially given Faye just want to not have to deal with more stress at that time, which absolutely would have happened if she told Dora.

Right. He's been a self centered, entitled twat AND screwing with my friends. A friend in this case who has just gotten to a semi-solid place in her life for the first time in a long time.

Yep you've just volunteered as a sacrifice to Kali.

I'm not saying she needs to go running to Dora, or that Dora even deserves to know, I am suggesting this is how Dora's going to take it, which is far more pertinent to the nuclear detonation of hate and discontent we appear to be in for.

Then if she figures out that it wasn't her business, she may go into a guilt spiral over the recognition that she over-reacted.

I see we're already speculating what happened to Sven. No surprise there.

I vasect it may have involved surgery.

I find myself wondering whether this could lead to a scenario where Faye quits COD. Not likely, but possible. She doesn't have quite the same laissez-faire attitude towards peoples BS that Marten seems to have.

The Pugnacious Peach could move to New York for a job, but I question whether she's rude enough to succeed there.

She's rude enough in certain circumstances. But I don't know if the sass is backed with enough confidence to work properly outside the circle of people she's used to intimidating (friends, COD regulars and irregulars). You don't need that much rudeness in NYC anyway. I've found it's just as easy to just blend in. Nobody pays attention to much besides their own reflection in NYC as it is.

Honestly, I've found people working in the service industry in Boston to be way ruder than the ones in New York.  (PERSONAL EXPERIENCE ONLY! YMMV!)

Very limited personal experience of one small section of Manhattan here, but what worked for me thatvlongago weekend was a friend's advice that "New Yorkers aren't rude. They're just in a hurry." (I also learned to not share a cab with a fellow conventioneer and Ohioan who loudly assured me he knew NYC 'like the back of my hand, so I know exactly how-to go from one place to another,'" much to the cabbie's eye-rolling delight.)

And she will move with Angus, they will be happily ever after, have a million of babies and I will name one of them Turbine Engine, because Fighter Jet is Marigold's kid. http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2763

Yeah, clearly it should be more like a billion. You know, to conquer the world and all.

Okay, you'd need more than a billion to conquer the whole world. Maybe just the United States.

Convincing me I was about to have the quintessential New York dining experience ... Bennigan's.
The rest of our circle soon learned to not listen to him.

It was still a great weekend. High point was actually stumbling across Al Hirschfeld's caricature gallery in a little hole-in-the-wall walkup near Central Park. That and finding a real, honest-to-God camera store. And watching tugboats on the Hudson from the deck of the Intrepid. Tugboats are awesome.

1996 or so. It was the 50th anniversary convention -- the Reuben Awards -- of the National Cartoonists Society (being a member of that used to be important to me). Hirschfield got a Lifetime Achievement Award, which was one of the reasons I was jazzed to find the gallery. It was within a block of Park Avenue, on the walk back from the park to the Waldorf, where the convention was.
