NEWW: Etiquette And Protocol

Comic for March 24, 2009: NEWW: Eti­quette And Pro­to­col

Apolo­gies for the filler! At least it’s more pleas­ant than damp under­wear fresh from a broken dryer. No one likes that action.

So yeah, remem­ber how Greg briefly men­tioned our lack of barhop­ping expe­ri­ence in his sea of text enthralling rec­ol­lec­tive saga? Even in the face of daunt­ing new chal­lenges, I did finally figure out how to reach the bar’s fabled “inside,” where the having of fine times com­menced.

Walk­ing around Main Street, this also occurred to me: the fash­ion­able colors for late winter are gen­er­ally black and grey, and my coat is ridicu­lously red.

  1. Red is fash­ion­able as long as it’s buf­falo plaid.

  2. PlantPerson says:

    I love the increas­ingly irri­tated expres­sion on the blue guy’s face, espe­cially in the fifth panel.

    The increas­ingly angry expres­sion on the doorman’s face reminds me of a Wind­sor McCay strip, Dreams of a Rarebit Fiend (http://​en.​wikipedia.​org/​w​i​k​i​/​D​r​e​a​m​s​_​o​f​_​a​_​R​a​r​e​b​i​t​_​Fiend). Except McCay’s strips usu­ally turned into a full-​blown night­mare for his pro­tag­o­nist.

  4. Greg says:

    “Sea of text”? Man, I was just trying to spice it up with some humor!

    Like that Dig­ithalia joke? “Muse of Algo­rithms, Com­put­ing, Free and Open Source Soft­ware, and Pinochle”? That’s freak­ing gold, man!

  5. John says:

    That’s crossed out! I crossed it out!

  6. Amanda says:

    Yeah, I still have the stamps on my hand from the Toasted Owl! God, that ink doesn’t come of, no matter how many times I obses­sively scrub it!

  7. John says:

    “Out, damned spot! Out, I say!”
