There’s flies buzzing around his clothes, so I hope he did (but Joel doesn’t strike me as the hygenic type, so probably not.)
Presumably, Slim checked in at the store office, explained his injury, and told them Joel would sub for him.
You mean the injury that they caused? You really think that’d make the store eager to associate with them? To let them near children?
And the store didn’t have any other option than the guy so filthy that there are literally flies gathering around his clothes? And I doubt that they know Slim well enough to allow him to vouch for anyone else, regardless. Vouching is when someone you trust applies trust-by-association so you’ll accept a stranger, so it’s not something you let some rando you hired invoke on you. It’s also mind-boggling that Slim would do that anyway, considering that once again, his injury is their fault (and he himself admitted that he was pretty upset about it.) He’s gonna put his own reputation on the line for these two bozos who he knows full well (it being a small town and all) can’t be trusted with even the simplest task, as he himself literally just got reminded the hard way?
One thing is for sure: applying any logic whatsoever here is a bad idea. This comic is clearly written under the expectation that the readers are just as dimwitted as the characters.
So, this establishment lets literally anyone walk in off the street, put on their Santa outfit, and come into physical contact with kids?
Hey, anything is possible through the power of Bad Writing!
Thumbs don’t lie. They are pure and innocent.
Gregor Clegane’s treatment of Oberyn Martell says otherwise.
We’ve already seen that she can’t write fiction. When she can’t think of an event from her life to base a story on, and can’t convince anyone else to let them use an event from their life, she shuts down completely and can’t write anything at all. This has already been shown in the strip itself.
Joel had better hope no child pulls out their Christmas list and asks him to read it, considering he’s illiterate.
It’s hard to be a single mom when you won’t go past first base with a guy.
First-timers always go tandem, just to be safe.
Whoa, looks like we might actually get to see this! I’m not counting it as 100% certain yet (after all, how sure were we a couple weeks ago that Stef would finally get some comeuppance? And look how that turned out) but it’s still looking pretty likely that I’ll get proven wrong about not seeing Luann follow through.
