Mondays and Fridays
Not to mention vile and disgusting ...

Blasphemy?  Profanity?  I swear, they're all the same.  *rimshot*

How will Carrie react to this vulgar visitor?  Click on the TopWebComics "Vote" button below for a preview of the next episode ...

I was getting a head start on this page ... got to Indianapolis on Sunday night, and found out that I'd left my laptop's power cord back in Fort Wayne.  On the bright side, I got to have dinner with my wife Monday night, as we met halfway in between (the Cracker Barrel at exit 259 gets a lot of our business).  Joan, I may be losing my mind, but I love you.

As of today, I've passed the six-year mark on this comic.  Maybe someday we'll get to a new year within the comic.  These girls gotta grow up sometime.

Seriously? Teal hair, and she calls THEM "clowns"? Her hair looks like a real-estate office.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

It's actually cyan, not teal.  I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but her name is Cyanne Hyde.

BTW, between Cyanne's cyan, Zinger's magenta, and Marilee's black with purple tips ... one of those is actually their natural color.

Pastangum Felinix (pastangum) says:

Cyan, magenta, black... you're missing a blonde. :)

I feel like I would've remembered if miss Hyde's name had been mentioned before.  At least I would have wanted to remember whether she had, er... mood swings.

Jim Cleaveland (bobadventures) says:

I agree with Carrie. I always thought it was strange that people tend to view silly potty-mouth cussing as somehow worse than blasphemy-type cussing; it always seemed like it should be the other way around.

gwen patton (ardrhi) says:

Symbols carry the meaning we ascribe to them. If the prevailing attitudes don't carry forward the weighting of the value, the symbol doesn't hold the charge of the meaning.  This is how a denotation, the "dictionary definition" of a word can slide to a more colloquial "connotation" over time, or how a word that was taboo or shameful at one point in time is suddenly every other word in common speech, and no one thinks twice about it -- the word simply doesn't carry the same social weighting among those who hear it anymore. SOME may still feel that way about it, but not enough to keep it carrying the old meaning throughout the society.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

Gwen:  Yep, taboos can fade, or be newly formed, over time.

Incidentally, those two sorts of swearing are closely related -- "sacred" and "unclean" taboos are mirror images to each other, both "untouchable".

I'm a middle-aged computer programmer from Indiana, but I've always enjoyed doodling and drawing. After discovering webcomics recently, I decide to try my hand at creating one. My wife thinks I'm crazy. My wife is a very sensible woman. ... full profile
