So, wait, Faz is a masochist now? Does that mean he’s secretly attracted to Mike?!
I think the intent isn’t “Hey, do something to hurt me.” It’s “I will never tell you! Oh, wait, if you do something that causes me pain, I will tell you because I will want you to stop causing me pain.”
I could be wrong.
You are correct. Faz has no inner monologue.
Really! I figured Faz has become so accustomed to people doing the opposite of what he demands that he’s trying to account for that with bad Reverse Psychology.
How did I overestimate Faz?
So any time Faz isn’t saying something, we can asume it’s not because he has nothing to say, but because he is, in fact, not thinking at all? Does that make Faz a zen master?
And does this explain why, if we meet the Buddha on the road, we are to kill him? Because he’ll be so smug we’ll need to?
No, basically that makes Faz a woman.
This bizarrely sexist comment brought to you by your friendly neighbourhood bigot, Kai Gon. Thanks, Kai Gon!
Poor Ethan and Leslie. I hope they weren’t hurt. Would love to see Faz get hurt though.
Wait…faz is giving robin an *excuse* to pound him? Woohoo for her! Go for it, girl!
Hopefully it’s not a trap involving security cameras.
Its Faz, of course theres no security cameras… that he knows of at least.
Escalators aren’t moving stairs, they’re faster stairs. You use them to climb faster and farther than an average person. The only time I stand still on an escalator is when the person in front of me stands still too.
I also climb home stairs on all fours.
I hate people who didn’t get the Rechts stehen, Links gehen memo and block the way for the rest of us.
Get behind them and shout “Left!” with increasing volume until they move. If they continue to not move, politely get their attention and explain escalator etiquette to them.
It is bad manners to point out other people’s bad manners.
Example: You are being very rude by not moving over to the right and blocking the way.
But it is also impolite to not educate others on proper manners.
Example of doing it right: Pardon me, I was shouting left because there is an expectation that when using escalators, people who wish to climb them more rapidly keep to the left while those who wish to stand and ride keep to the right. Would you mind clearing the path on the left?
‘Round these parts escalators aren’t double-wide – if one person tried to pass one another they’d both get stuck against the sides, presumably causing their feet to get chewed off by the still-moving stairs, or possibly an explosion. I take it they’re wider where you are?
And you ain’t supposed to run on those meat grinders, by the way.
“I swear, I’m not a bitter person
But all these minor things can sometimes leave ya cursin’
It’s enough to make you wanna clench your hands tight
When you’re on an escalator, walk left, stand right”

I run up home stairs hunched over so I can use my my feet and knuckles like a gorilla. Weird?
I had to study this to get the visual joke at the end because the middle panel is such a slight advancement that I could not immediately tell that she had gone a little bit up.
USE THEM LIKE STAIRS!
This thing is really about to escalate!!!
Someone had to say it.
I just hope that Ethan and Les, don’t have that “hostages falling for each other and kissing” thing. Would hate to see such nice people get turned “straight”.
Shorpacked’s got escalators? This is a new revelation, right?
They’ve been there since the Grand Reopening: http://shortpacked.com/comic/book-9/09-grand-reopening/tour/
The real joke, I think, isn’t simply that somebody’s in a hurry and still just standing on the escalator.
It’s that it’s Robin, ostensibly the Fastest Person Alive in the Walkyverse. And she’s just standing on the (seemingly excruciatingly slow, if Willis uses the ‘one panel=7 seconds’ formula) escalator.
Behold the sinister machinations of the Axis of Something!
I just like how Faz is sitting there waiting for her to get to him. Run away? Don’t be ridiculous. Got to wait for the escalator.
It’s surprisingly difficult to run up an escalator.
I don’t have anything to contribute, I just want to see what my avatar is.
It’s mine, give it back.
Robin’s wearing her suit to work.
Off the Bi!(#. Yus gotta lotta probs. One may be suddenlike type I hope.
