These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Anvilicious: During the Bush era, Tajel constantly protested the war in Iraq. There were a few less-than-subtle Bush slams during that time as well.
The Woobie: All the characters at times, but especially Cecilia during the first year of the strip. She seems perpetually overworked, a point driven home by this strip and her having to cancel her vacation trip to work more.
