Mike deserves a nominal tag
I’ve actually done this to teens, treating them like they’re a different generation when really they’re like two or three years younger than me.
I even do that to people my age.
I’ve done it to people who are older than me (not much older, like within a few years). It’s funnier when they don’t know your 3 years younger than them and begin to wonder why someone who looks about 20 is calling them “you kids”.
I once had a ten year old shout at me, “hey kid! over here!”
More Dawsonshirt! Aiee!
Just couldn’t take the bait and switch, could he?
I love pretending like shock and awe at AWESO- I mean weirdness, to be mere ignorance, because what’s wrong with weirdness?
Ah giant robots is there no problem they can’t solve?
The Giant Robot Rebellion?
Oh, they’ll solve that problem. Just not to our benefit.
For some reason this comment made me feel really cheerful. I think I was expecting you to say something totally different.
Is it just me, or all this weeks strips foreshadowing infidelity?
Maybe it’s just me.
Ha! Probably. I love the look on your avatar’s face. It’s so naive and innocent it matches perfectly with your comment.
So my comment is naive and innocent? YOU HAVE INSULTED MY INTERNET EGO. PISTOLS AT DAWN, SIR.
Seriously though, I love this avatar so much. And I got it randomly too. Win.
They are going to bang like Mike is dead.
Did she ring his doorbell, or was she walking down the hall and he opened the door? Also, what did he have for dinner and what does he think about while on the crapper?
“Did she ring his doorbell”
Kinky! (With apologies to Hedy Lamarr)
Wait, Jacob lives in The House too?
Amber and Mike moved out.
And, of course, there are only a handful of appartment buildings in San Francisco, so of course they wind up right next to him.
Oh yeah… For some reason I was thinking Robin and Leslie moved out, but now I realize that that would be impossible since they own it…
I always get caught offguard by the punchline of that page, even though I know it’s coming. So awesome.
I assumed there was some mention of it somewhere, but didn’t feel like looking it up.
That said, gotta love the tight continuity you keep.
Bah! Mech Pilot is an AWESOME game and the hamster seems to enjoy it. He should try it out!
Thin walls huh?? Then I guess he gets to hear other types of ‘banging’ coming from their apartment too. Poor Jacob.
Nahh i’m sure jacob enjoys hearing the banging. He seems like the person that will get back at people eventually.
That’s actually what I thought he was referring to at first.
I play Mech Pilot with my dog! I’ll shuttle him from one couch to another and make joint noises for every step: *BZZZRT*KTCH*BZZZRT*KTCH*
I never thought I’d say this, but I miss Reagan. Jacob is kind of “meh” for me.
Then again, it would probably be pretty damn creepy to set up sexual tension between Amber and Ronald Reagan sooooooooooo…
A few years makes a huge difference in toys and cartoons. For instance, kids in grade 9 (freshman’s for you Americans) didn’t watch digimon. as an 18 year old i find that appalling. 4 years makes a difference.
Although, Transformers came out in ’84 and The Power Rangers didn’t come out until ’93. That suggests that Jacob is possibly 9 years younger than Ethan and Amber.
Does that sound about right Willis?
I just graduated my Freshman year. I basically flipped out after realizing that I’m the only person in my grade who watched Sailor Moon as a kid.
But you’re skipping a generation. It was transformers -> teenage mutant ninja turtles -> power rangers.
Also, Amber might be a few years younger than Ethen, i dont really remember
Amber is halfway between Ethan and Jacob’s ages.
Panel 6 is the cutest ever.
“We have thin walls between our apartments”… Oh, man. Does this qualify as a Chekhov’s Boomerang?
It’s foreshadowing, at least!
