some Dans, meanwhile, just double-down and get worse.

EDIT: also, there's no guarantee that his insides are as nice as his outside.  Could be that the class just has two Dans who are "cool" now.

That was always the rule in my extended family during the holidays.  I am a turkey (amongst other things) expert, so if I'm going to be a slave to a dead bird for 6 hours, I'm going to go into a food coma after, and not lift a finger.  My uncles were always good at doing the washing up, but my father did fuck-all, either in preparation or cleanup, which is one of the many reasons that I resent him.

It's amazing what that last 33% of puberty plus four years at college can do for a guy! Also, yes, High School is a miserable place.

Here's a prediction: Renee has been lamenting the stunted nature of her emotional life and her inability to find someone really interested in her. Then a nerdy guy from High School suddenly appears on her timeline without warning. So, they strike up an online conversation, he comes over to see her and, literally with no warning, we're in a Jim and Vernonica scenario: The two of them are in bed together, post-coitus and...

DAN: "So, I was thinking of dropping everything and moving out here to be with you."

RENEE: "Nothing could make me happier!"

I might be wrong but it seems odd that a hot guy who she knows should turn up in Renee's field of view so soon after she laments a lack of said things in her life. Consider it a 'Chekhov's tweet'!

Honestly, middle school was worse.

Granted, most of the shitness in high school ended in sophmore year after a failed attempt to shove me in a locker. The two guys couldn't get it closed thanks to my broad shoulders. And they both ran off pretty damn quick when I pushed the locker open.

EDIT: Nearly all the bullying I received throughout middle and high school (grades 6 through 12) was verbal. Apart from the locker incident, there were three shoving matches that almost got me expelled from middle school, and paper footballs aimed at my head by cowards.

Here's a prediction: [...]
I dont see it. Jeph's stories are usually more realistic than that. Even the Sven-Faye relationship had a dedicated pre- and postdevelopment. She was drunk, they had "the talk" before, Sven had been quite nice for some time to her, Sven used "THE LOOK" on her.

Also, funny, apparently I'm too much of a Star Trek fan. I keep writing "Seven" instead of "Sven".

Don't get me wrong. Dan in Northampton would be a huge endeavour. There would be plenty of Renee brain-slips where she starts calling him 'Shitty Dan' without meaning to and there would follow the endless self-recriminations and trying to work out if she's just naturally a horrible person. Elliot would try to be the overprotective big brother when it is least needed and welcome. He will probably have to deal with the fact that Dan was one of his bullying victims when he was busy succumbing to peer pressure and thus having to double-guess his own reactions to the man. Maybe Brun would try to be helpful (and naturally it would end up being anything but helpful) by comparing Dan to all of Renee's Tinder hook-ups.

Jim and Veronica literally snapped together but they were an exception and there is a feeling of 'destiny' about them - Two lonely people who found someone who filled the holes in their lives. Jeph could get away with setting aside 500 strips for a Danee romance arc before coming to any conclusion.

That said, yeah, it's still a romantic comedy and will leave Clinton (an outside observer) wondering why all his circle seem to be living Romcom lives!

Pour one out for the people who had to go through being Shitty Dan on the inside.

Here's to those of us with PTSD, mental illnesses and/or abusive parents in highschool, who were not coping and were in the worst possible environment to learn how.

The rule here is that the cook cleans. It motivates you to keep your workplace clean as you go.

In practice, we both pitch in anyway. But really, cooking with the knowledge that you don't have to clean the mess you're creating doesn't lead to good things.

Agreed.  Although I went to junior high instead of middle school, but things started to suck in the 5th grade and 6th grade.  I didn't really notice at the time because those grades were above all the others in elementary school so it seemed better than it really was.  Things improved once I got to high school, but the paranoia never went away until after I graduated.  Since then I've chosen to forgive and overlook when it comes to friend requests on Facebook, but in the last few years I've learned that some people are the same assholes they were in high school.  I wouldn't mind so much if their lives sucked, but some are doing well for themselves so schadenfreude denied.   

I can't say that I looked as good as Shitty Dan years after high school, but I've aged better than most of my classmates so at least I've got that.

Bubs' Lunch Special... you have to get him to say his name backwards minus the first "B" so... "Sbu"... Well I walk around sayin' "Sbu" all the time, this'll be a cakewalk!!! Or at least a Sbu-walk...

Or Trevor The Vampire from Hampden, Maine takes a vacation to Northampton, Massachusetts for some reason? And

And what? Oh no, they got him!!! Somebody killed Trevor with a stake through the heart!!!

Ooh, even better! QC crossover with "4 Gregs" and "Teen Girl Squad" now that would be awesome.

Quote from: Daria
So let me just say that, in my experience, high school sucks. If I had to do it all over again, I'd have started advanced placement classes in preschool so I could go from eighth grade straight to college. However, given the unalterable fact that high school sucks, I'd like to add that if you're lucky enough to have a good friend and a family that cares, it doesn't have to suck quite as much. Otherwise, my advice is: stand firm for what you believe in, until and unless logic and experience prove you wrong; remember, when the emperor looks naked, the emperor is naked; the truth and a lie are not 'sort of the same thing'; and there is no aspect, no facet, no moment of life that can't be improved with pizza. Thank you."

Well, there's their 'meet-cute'. At some point Renee is going to realise her life is a romcom and ask Brun why her life is a romcom. Brun, of course, won't have any knowledge about it and will ask Elliott and Clinton about it. I'm not sure exactly where that will take things. However, I'm expecting Elliot to quote Marten from before Jim and Veronica met: "Which makes me the straight man. I hate being the straight man!"

If a man had made such a huge social gaffe, he might say that he 'wasn't thinking with the head on my shoulders'. Do ladies have a similar saying? Renee was certainly so eager to start a communication that she was acting without thinking, which I suspect may be a feature of her side of Danee, no matter how long it lasts or how serious it gets!

Next comic, he just goes 'Eh, whatever.'

Renee was a goth girl in high school. I'm wondering if she had her own unflattering nickname that he'll use in response and this will be considered 'flirting' rather than the precursor to a fight. You can tell that I don't get how they do romances in the entertainment media, can't you?

No, it isn't; the closest thing is a bonus comic where (clothed) Bubbles is attempting to make sexy poses for Faye with variable results.

I just want to add that Renee being used for beats like this is why the mum-friend thing didn't land for me. I think this is more in line with what I understand her character to be.

Shitty Dan may be a good sport about it seeing as how he didn’t mind that being his name in the yearbook.

Public schools and bullying  :-P
Grade school, beatings and some name calling  :cry:
Middle school, psychological warfare is in its infancy and physical interactions simmer down to intimidation with the occasional shoving  :-\
High school, psychological and social warfare become the modes operand and is refined during this period.  :? Physical violence was almost nonexistent due to proximity to a law enforcement hub. :police:

Conclusion: Public schools suck

I had an insightful and nuanced comment prepared, but brain slippage, LOL.

Is there a term for stuffing both your feet into your gullet and munching on the calves for good measure?
We call that painful.

Do not understand the prohibitions against a physical response to a psychological attack.  It does not matter what form of attack, there are no rules in self-defense.  Rules are for a sporting event, not survival.

Why is Bubbles naked?

I was wondering myself that something looked different. The RSS feed links to 3469. I made it a few comics further until I realized I've seen it before, and a few after that was actually the dearmoring of Bubbles.

Because zero-tolerance policies in regards to bullying are brainless and require the school to actively acknowledge that the aggressor is at fault and tell their parent's that to their face. And school faculty have had to deal with generation after generation of terrible parents who think their hellspawn are perfect little angels.

Comic!

I love Renee's eyebrows in this comic, they're very expressive. Hopefully Renee manages to keep her feet out of her mouth during the coffee date (can we call it a date?).

determining if it’s a date might be a retroactive thing, depending on how good/bad it goes

Brief tangent:

In a school Zoom meeting, one of the teachers gave the class a question of the day. It was "Would you rather have fingers for toes or toes for fingers?" One kid in our class heard that as "fingers for toast or toast for fingers." The next ten minutes of the class dissolved into a deep discussion on how toast fingers would work. Would they regrow? Would it be worth it to eat them anyway? If this applied to your toes as well, what would happen if you stubbed one?

My point: Renee can have romance, or she can have delicious extremity toast. I know which one I'd choose.
