It's always sad when one loses touch with a family member. I just wonder how bad it is with Marigold and her dad as she isn't the sort who I could imagine just 'phoning her dad to catch up and something tells me he doesn't do that either! Just how out of the loop is he? Please use my poll to let us know what you think!

Personally, I think that he might be very surprised to meet Dale. Hell, I'm not even sure that he's aware that Momo has 'upgraded' to an young adult-form chassis!

"That answers all my questions" made me laugh. My headcannon for now is that she just told him she works online and is making a ton of money and her dad, who watches porn, wanted to know if he should block certain content to avoid seeing his daughter naked.

Could it not merely be parental concern? Especially with doxxing being a thing these days on top of creepy stalkers.

I have  been reading Dad as he loves her, but there is so much he does not understand.  Then add a family history of not communicating at all well.

No, that's why I said headcannon. Though porn workers wouldn't be successful if a lot of people didn't watch porn so it wouldn't be that weird. And most dads do not want to see their adult children naked so that's also not that weird. However, I also think he loves her and is worried about her. Though with May around, that concern level may drop quite a bit.

I'm afraid that Marigold's dad was right. Even outside the subset of 'Marigold', that's actually pretty mainstream! The only thing unusual about it is that she's made a success of it!

I'm sure May's breasts are inflatable, and she randomly changes up the size in order to mess with people.

Yeah - I thought it was my imagination last time (the oat milk arc), but this...this is plainly...um...ostentatious?
She'd even put Marigold in the shade - with May's height, I mean literally in the shade  :-D

Ok, I actually had to go back and look at today's comic again because of you all.
Is that not just from her crossing her arms? I don't recall May being portrayed in her new body in this pose before, so I'm wondering if that's part of it.

The fear many have about nudity being inherently sexual and gross when it's a relative, I would argue, is not so much 'not that weird' as it is 'not that unusual.' Because I'd argue it definitely is a bit weird.

This is hilarious. I came here just to say - what the hell is up with May's tits?? Did I miss something in the story in that she had an augmentation or something?? I guess the answer is no. Now I feel slightly justified in saying what I've wanted to say for a long time, which is that a lot of the female characters seem to have ever-growing breasts that end up looking disproportionate and weird to their otherwise small bodies. (A few exceptions exist, yes I know.) As a woman with not-small breasts myself and having experienced all the super fun social bs that goes along with that, I've found it a wee bit of a turn off and kind of creepy. Like, why. Jeph. Why? Bye now, not sticking around for all the shitty feedback.

Porn isn't nonsexual. It's not like him seeing her change clothes or something to that effect. It's seeing her have sex or perform sexual acts which I see as a byproduct of an aversion to incest that - particularly between a parent and child - is not only "not weird" but a healthy thing.

I get that my wording is probably prompting your response so just to clarify I'm still completely on the line of "parent not wanting to watch their kids do sex stuff" and not general nudity.

It's surely part of it, but it looks like there should be a lot more overflow somewhere in that panel. About half of the overall volume seems to have just disappeared.

New comic.

Same, Mr. Farmer, but I don't think it's as easy as that. You need to have the gift of gab, and play games that other people are actually interested in watching, AND play it engagingly. For hours, and hours, and hours, and hours...

There was an item on the news here recently that people who streamed on Twitch professionally actually had burnout, since they almost had to stream non-stop to make a living out of it.

I remember that May, being May, deliberately choose a body with extra large breasts when she could afford a new body. I didn't keep track of the variations since then...

I'm throwing my two tits cents in with everyone else. I'm mainly a lurker here, and one of my 14 total posts ~300 pages ago has been on this topic in this forum (about Faye and Willow, but still). I enjoy the comic, but it's... continuously getting more and more ridiculous and distracting.

At least the size of May's could canonically be explained to be controlled by her Operating System...? *shrug*

I think you're prolly right, I remember Jeph leaving a comic comment way back in the way back about finally drawing Dora's hair just right, after thousands of pages.  One thing to be sure of is that Jeph's style hasn't stopped changing.  Dunno if he is pursuing an idea, pursuing whats easiest, or whats the most fun way to draw for him.

When we first met Yay, they were taller, more sinister, and a little more masculine.  May is the most physically dynamic character in the show, it stands to reason that its tough titties to get idea to ink perfectly every time, especially when you reinvent that idea every few years.

I've been hesitant to comment about her chest itself for a number of reasons.  But whilst composing a post on the subject (that I deleted even before posting), I did an archive dig to when she got her new body, and yes, they were large, but nothing like this.  So I'm kinda torn between disliking this change because they've gone into full "gag boobs" territory, and not being too bothered, because in many ways, she is prone to excess in general, especially when body stuff comes into play.  As one must recall, she is someone who spent her time at the convenience store reading "Prolapse Monthly", and now that Pintsize is finally showing some maturity, is basically the closest character in comic to a 4chan denizen.  I guess that robots don't have to worry about the back troubles real humans do.

I honestly thought Marigold's dad was a single parent.

This is the first time that Marigold's mother has gotten a mention, I think.

At their current rate of expansion, I predict that within 50 years, May's breasts will attain critical mass and start undergoing nuclear fusion.

I really hate it when people assume someone else's job must be easy.

And I find it harder to keep track of the chest sizes in my head other than a general impression of bigness, but the angle May's breasts stick out from her body in this comic feels like a lot to me.

There are those folks who ought to be but never got the divorce.

Comic's up.

Don't underestimate how hard it is to play video games for a living.

Ditto for Quality Assurance. We're the steel plate over the company's arse. So as a request to any fellow factory workers, kindly don't stick yours out from behind the cover.

Steering the topic gently away from 8008135...

I honestly expected the "Rhythm Instruments" tag to herald an analogy between Mar's dad playing games and those of us who can't rip out a bitchin' lead break but are happy to be Malcolm Young. Testicular castanets were NOT on my shortlist...

Anyone who has done progression raiding has dealt with that. Marigold can do the gaming part easy. The whole streaming as a business, though, that is a metric fuckton of work. Who knows, she might even get to the point where she doesn't even want to think of games when "off the clock". Hopefully, and since she does have help and support, she can make a living doing something that she enjoys.

Oh, while generally true, those who assume that about my job are 100% correct. Okay, maybe only 95%, but I’m usually am asleep at work.

I really don't think that it's safe for Mr Farmer to get involved in streaming. If he doesn't even know what is the flaming big pit of burning brimstone that is shipping, then he's an innocent that the Internet will inevitably consume.

These characters have better acting skills than a lot of meatbag humans on television! Their expressions really express their thoughts and feelings.

This made me chuckle. I don't think it's a "wrong" design choice and honestly not out of character but I'm not a fan of it personally.

As a side note, has Marigold's design changed too or am I imagining it? She's always been pretty but now she looks even prettier. I wonder if this is about her embracing a more well rounded life style, being social, getting out more, yoga, somebody forcing her to clean her surroundings. Hanners seems to be having a good impact and May too. And also probably Dale. I don't like them being pushy about it but I am happy to see her happy.

I think a LOT of Mommymilkers' fandom is protective, as far as it goes. So I don't imagine much shipping.

As somebody in Mr. Farmer's age cohort who is moderately successful at streaming, <brag> achieving Twitch partner </brag> in 2018 after 3 years at it, yeah, it isn't that easy. But I've always been a gamer, work in media, and have kept up with the internet's social protocols and memes, so it wasn't that much of a reach. Just had to find my niche in being more of a counterprogramming to the LOUD HYPE CREATOR and playing more strategy/simulation games with a chill community vibe.

Coming at it nearly blind could work, and being bad at games in a genuine way is honestly a good niche, but it probably takes more self-awareness and willingness to adapt than the character has shown so far. And yes, the trolls will come at somebody HARD if they smell a newbie out of their element. As I worked my own way up the ladder, I modded for several other streamers, so at this point, I've seen it all, and can shut it down fast. I'm as likely to go straight to a ban instead of a timeout these days for somebody who demonstrates they're not there for the right reasons.

It's interesting seeing Jeph's fictional take on the business, and for the most part, while the level of success shown is *really* rare, he's been getting it right while serving his own story. And yes, the concern for security is real. A close friend had a stalker show up at her apartment at 3am, and the amount of abuse that women, POC, and LGBTA+ get behind the scenes that they don't talk about openly is disturbing.

But building a healthy and supportive community of any size is very possible, and for the most part, the positives can outweigh the negatives. It's just important to recognize that streamers face a lot of pressures and anxiety that you'll rarely see, but exist none-the-less.
