Hmm. Is this supposed to be funny? I don‘t think it‘s funny.
This rather looks like a „keep your hands off drugs, kids“-scenario.


I'm not reading a "hey kids, smoke weed, it's great!" message in this.

Well yeah.
If one of the QC readers still lives at home and happens to have Peter and Polly Pearlclutcher for parents, they'd freak out.

I'd been unaware that weed causes dogs to appear. That's a beneficial effect.

Oh, a dog. Nice.  :clairedoge:

I like dogs. But this arc is starting to seriously annoy me. It‘s about 20 years since I last tried weed. I don‘t remember it beeing this narcotic. My daughter is 19 years old now and I’m thinking sometimes, „hey, maybe I should try it again“.
But after reading this, well, aahm...

No, thanks. I‘m served.

This storyline is more https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MarijuanaIsLSD for humorous effect rather than truthful.

The nice thing is nowadays, if you live in an area where it is legalized you can go to your dispensary, describe the effect you are looking for and have someone help you find that.

When I first saw this strip, I thought that the dog was Shelby and the QC verse was where all good dogs go. However, yeah, that's a Borzoi, one of the great aristocrats of the dog world who, because of their long snout, have one of the disproportionately large and most good-natured smiles in the animal kingdom!

All three see the same dog, and Tai exhibits at least some awareness that a dog is not an expected sight to see in the present circumstances.

This argues against the dog being a hallucination.

I'm thinking that Tai got it right and Cosmo decided to follow her into the house because of the smell of fresh munchies. Naturally, the door is still open; I doubt Tai would have noticed something like that. Overall, I'm sort of glad that Dora and probably Marten are coming over because I don't trust Claire and Mrs A to be able to look after themselves right now.

As for Cosmo? I'm pretty sure that he's just a one-off guest star. However, I'm sure that he has decided that the Augustus ladies are nice but generally weird. Much like all humans in that regard.

See the picture by Tai's head? I'm thinking that's Claire with some kind of school trophy. Now I find myself wondering: What got her an extra award at school? Do you think she has a hidden prowess that she's never revealed 'on camera' yet?

Boring answer is that she got a special award for academic performance or something similar. Exciting possibility: She's an ace hockey player or something.

I'm thinking that Jeph has been spending too long in various comments sections. Yes, there are some people who are totally obsessed with neuromimetic robots' 'equipment'. That said, he would be probably not doing his job properly if he hadn't already considered these questions just in case it came up in-story.

I mean ...  every TurkeyDay again, I can't help noticing what a singularly hideous bird that is. Who'd want to eat something like that after having been treated to a collage of full-facial closeups?

Does anyone know whether Jeph is a vegetarian?

I mean ...  every TurkeyDay again, I can't help noticing what a singularly hideous bird that is. Who'd want to eat something like that after having been treated to a collage of full-facial closeups?
Remember: once, long ago, someone was the first person to look at a lobster and say “you know what? I’m gonna eat that.”

And that person probably couldn't afford anything else. It wasn't that long ago, as this interesting little bit of history points out, that lobster was a "trash fish" fo' po' folks. The rebranding wasn't as drastic as that given the Patagonian toothfish (sorry: Chilean Sea Bass) or what is being attempted in the U.S. Great Lakes region with the "Asian carp" (sorry: Silverfin).

Cosmo or Henlo or whatever his name is, he is an example of canis ex machina.

As for formerly humble food :

Barbeque ribs, they sure are po' folks food turned into a delicacy.

Brisket - same thing.

Cassoulet - same thing.

Oysters - same thing.

Clams - same thing.

The effect isn't confined to lobster.
