"Hello, I'm here to help you but I won't hesitate to defend myself if you turn out to be dangerous".

Good thinking on Aurelia's part. Not that a baseball bat would be of much use against Yay, but she doesn't know that.

"We're not going to hurt you."
Sure, that's what Cosmo's tail says...the Louisville Slugger begs to differ.

Yay's Batman Vanish move was so much more impressive and effective in their head.

Meanwhile, all Cosmo knows is that Plastic Person is funny and she desperately wants to put her head in their lap.

Because nothing says better "everything is going to be alright, nobody is going to hurt you" than a baseball bat...

Also: Is it me or is Mrs Augustus getting younger and younger?

I can't blame her for being cautious; if it'd been me hearing someone having a loud argument with themselves on my front lawn at 2 in the morning, going out to talk to them would not have been my first thought.

Definitely. Whether it's intentional or just a consequence of Jeph's drawing style evolution over time, there is a noticeable change. I remember her having expression marks close to her upper lips. Maybe Cosmo and streaming did her good.

So..instead of "Elf on a shelf", we now have "Yay in a Yew"?

Yay may have dog-sensing abilities, but Cosmo has Yay-sensing abilities.

Stay in the tree, Yay.

Dogs are famously flexible in their affections, but have we ever seen anything in the strip or in real life where a dog made friends with someone who smelled like plastic?

A quick look at the Wiki reminded me that Cosmo wandered in from the street. A week passed without the original owner appearing to claim her. Yay claims to have dog sensing abilities. So Yay is not Cosmo's original owner.

Yes, this tells us that Yay's instances retain individuality while sharing basics. What puzzles me is why Yay is having this debate audibly. And loudly.
Perhaps they're also unintentionally auditioning for a really monologue-y part in a Shakespeare play as well?

EDIT to avoid double posting.

So..instead of "Elf on a shelf", we now have "Yay in a Yew"?

Are we certain it's not a bay 🌳?

But notice that Cosmo is wagging enthusiastically: I suspect Cosmo knows Yay from prior experience.  I expect this to end badly, especially if another instance of Yay appears.

I think Cosmo is just very affectionate by nature, like how she literally jumped straight into Elliot's arms the moment he walked into the door.
