"...another reason I'm intrigued with the hanged of Salem, especially the women, is that a number of them aroused suspicion in the first place because they were financially independent, or sharp-tongued, or kept to themselves. In other words, they were killed off for the same sort of life I live right now but with longer skirts and fewer cable channels." Sarah Vowell, The partly cloudy patriot.


More comics

Or combics, as I typo'd in the last comic post.

A friend of mine does something like this, actually. She lives in the suburbs, and when she goes to the mall, she gets a margarita -- which they put in a soda cup, and she wanders around the mall looking like she is drinking a soda, but is really drinking a yummy margarita. Sheer genius.

Those comics are HILARIOUS.

The one about the martini esp. Our uni cafeteria sells frozen margaritas which just look like ordinary slushies, and I've seen students drinking them in class thinking no one will know. (Hell, I've been tempted to do it myself!)

Oh, and the thing in your post above about waists and heads: that is so totally bogus I can't believe it. I have a stupidly small waist (27 inches, and that's with a huge Ethiopian dinner inside it)*, yet it's way bigger than my head. Anyway, that ratio makes no allowance for height, since I'm pretty sure that head circumference doesn't scale linearly with height. But you are right: there are probably thousands of girls who heard that and will forever believe they (quite literally) don't measure up!

* It's not a good thing, either, since it makes it impossible to find skirts or trousers that don't sag around the waist and burst open at my 44 inch hips/arse).

Oh, there have been soooo many times that I have been this close to making my morning coffee "Irish."

That last comic is pretty smart.

styley: your uni sells liquor??? Ours sells it in the faculty lounge, but grad students need a faculty to escort them in there. My old school had an awesome pub on campus, but no liquor in cafeterias!!! I have trouble getting stuff that fits my waist and hips too - if it fits my hips, it's way too big for my waist.

clio: the last one is non sequitur - he does good stuff.

dr. deb: glad you liked them!

Oh yeah. We have a pub on campus, but also the cafeteria sells the slushies mentioned above, and beer. And then the various other cafes and so on mostly offer wine or beer too. But liquor laws in Aus are, I think, a bit more relaxed than in the USA. E.g. the drinking age here is 18.
