  1. Did she leave because he was trying to get in her pants or because she didn’t want to sleep with a climate-change kook? Not that I’m sleeping with anyone (Mrs. SingaporeBill doesn’t allow that), but when one of those red flags pops into view and, for the sake keeping things civil, I have to bite my tongue about obvious BS, I find it hard to spend time around those people. It’s particularly disappointing when things were going so well.

  2. @Singapore Bill, I think she was just completely turned off. In which case she agrees with you, as do I.

  3. I saw her as rejecting him not for being a climate change denier, but rather for being one of those half-wits who say “if global warming is real, why is it cold outside?” and think they’re being clever.

    In any case, a great tie-in with the current contrived controversy.

  4. “Did she leave because he was trying to get in her pants or because she didn’t want to sleep with a climate-change kook?”

    I’m going with option C, which is that she’s taking off because he’s a confrontational rectum-orifice.

  5. B.A.: I don’t see why it can’t be both. Or, adding in James Pollock’s comment, all three.

    Let’s just say that there are at LEAST three good reasons to be cold outside rather than stay.

  6. All four. He’s your all round red pill jerk whose presence just isn’t worth tolerating.

    This was a lol for me.

  7. Recalling an episode of Cheers, in which the normally expert babe hound Sam is called upon to pitch at a charity softball game against a team of Playboy bunnies. He pitches a brutal no-hitter that not only deprives the crowd of seeing the bunnies run the bases, but effectively kills any chance of post-game hookups. He’s shocked and a bit worried when Diane points how his macho athlete instincts overran his more basic instincts.

  8. Is this somehow connected to the current “controversy” surrounding this now non-P.C. song?

    What’s the lead time for webcomics?

  9. @CiDU Bill. It’s like The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, with Huck Finn and Slave Jim. Nice production though and sung well, though.

  10. “What’s the lead time for web comics?”

    Effectively zero, I imagine: except for the time it takes to physically draw the thing, a web comic an be uploaded as quickly as I can upload a comic.

    I remember one time a web comic got a parody of a current news story online so quickly, I saw the comic before I saw the actual news item.

  11. “Is this somehow connected to the current “controversy” surrounding this now non-P.C. song?”

    And yes, definitely.

    Though it might be less non-PC than we thought after all, because the radio station that made such a big deal about banning the song changed their mind when they got a lot of mail in support of the song.

    In other words, it was all just a publicity stunt.

  12. >Is this somehow connected to the current “controversy” surrounding this now non-P.C. song?

    >What’s the lead time for webcomics?

    One imagines it would be less than 3 years.

    >In other words, it was all just a publicity stunt.

    Or the station owners were wimps and would do whatever they perceive as the popular view.

  13. Woozy, they presented this as a matter of principle.

    If you owned a radio station, and the popular view was that minstrel music was acceptable, I doubt you’d play it.

  14. in the song, faux-naïve woman enjoys listening to smooth talker try to charm her pants off. In the comic, she escapes loudmouth trying to talk her brains out.

  15. “Nobody can not like this one”

    With CHILDREN singing a song about sex? Is it even legal for you to post that?

  16. I hadn’t heard the update to the radio station story, so thanks for mentioning that.

    I must admit to considering the possibility it could have all just been a coincidence that the Cyanide comic happened to be published right in the middle of the kerfuffle, since the song is kind of low-hanging fruit anyway.

  17. @ Bill – “I saw the comic before I saw the actual news item.
    Just last month I saw two or three editorial cartoons with tributes to Stan Lee, a few hours before I caught the first report about his death.

  18. @ Andréa – Patch refuses to let Europeans visit their website. I’m not going to post it here (because it’s political), but you might enjoy Jeff Danziger’s cartoon for Dec 15th (dated the 16th at GoComics).
