Oh Canada! What Changes Dost Though Wrought?

All characters unaccountably start using the word 'Eh' in every sentence
Marten trades in the 'Teh' shirt for one with a red maple leaf
May suddenly wants to be a Mountie
Dora suddenly apologises all the time
For no adequately explored reason, the strip is suddenly set in Halifax
Pintsize changes his langage settings to French (Canadian)
Claire is suddenly from Quebec
Most mysteriously... THERE ARE NO CHANGES AT ALL!
Coffee of Doom becomes Poutine of Doom
Marten trades in the 'Teh' shirt for an 'Eh' shirt

Less for the reader and more for Marten it WAS good timing. The pun is breaking the tension of the situation. Had she just thrown a ring pun out randomly it wouldn't have worked.

I think I finally have to weigh in with an opinion on the subject.

That was not Claire's best pun.

I think she tried too hard to get it around. To close the loop, if you will. To bring it full circle.

I fear she didn't quite push the point through, if you know what I mean. It's likely to leave an uncomfortable hole.

Don't worry. I'm sure she'll get the point soon. I mean it's right under her nose.

Well, hopefully things will stay open. I'd hate for this close up on her.

Who knows what will happen now

But at least Martens comment had the ring of truth

true... but "have people look at me" and "avoid a painful death" are not exactly on the same level when it comes to reasons for doing things.

Getting something done so that you feel comfortable with yourself is not the same as 'have people look at me.'

Either this will lead to a sibling arms race that ends with Claire and Clinton both looking like biker stereotypes, upping the ante more and more until Claire considers becoming a complete cyborg and their mother has to step in..or this whole arc was a Claire/Clinton Sven/Dora sibling contrast/reconciliation deal...and a chance for Jeph to make that pun.

An arms race, you say? You'll need to talk to Emily about that.

But assuming the shop your at is sanitary, the risk of 'painful death' is very low. I could also reduce my risk of a painful death by not driving, or just by never leaving my apartment in general. Every moment of our existence we're risking death in some form or another. Should you spend all your time worrying about it or should you spend the time you have doing what you want to do?

Usually, I don't make much commentary on people arguing about stuff that seems trivial to me, because glass houses.

Today, I'm going to make a rare exception.

I'm not sharing, though. I mean, it was fun a thought when I had it, but it's not exactly sterile, so it's best I don't use it to try to poke holes in anything. It would probably turn out to be nowhere near as piercing as it seems to me.

Perhaps that comment of mine was too pointed. I mean, I thought it was on the nose, but maybe its ring was hollow.

you misunderstood my comment... my body modifications are in pursuit of "avoiding a painful death"... body art is not.
