Just shoot her through the heart why don't you?
Sigh... I'm so glad we're dealing with things in a mature way. I'm sure Walky would approve.
In their defense, a lot of these characters are teenagers. Teens tend to be kinda immature.
Be nice if we had a break from the more egregiously immature characters for a minute, though. There's plenty of other characters that it would be interesting to see, especially in this post-timeskip moment.
I have to say that Dorothy is much more patient than me. She's putting up with far more crap from Becky than I think she has any obligation to.
Good news; we're FINALLY doing other things
You know what, for what it's worth, she seems to be trying to be a better person. To Lucy, at least.
Looks like Becky isnt the only one wanting to "do things"
And also, some self awareness from becky
Well, at least she's self-aware and trying to make up for it. Good for her.
Toe disembowlment? Too spicy even for me!
Also, naaaw, apologies :3
Very glad for the apology food.
If you're not sure what someone eats, go simple with the apology food.
Chicken fingers and french fries. Everyone loves those.
A deli platter is also usually a great choice for food gifting.
Doing things old school I see
Freaking weirds me out that I'm openly vegan but friends and Co workers will gift me non vegan food as leaving presents or get well soon presents. Like, the sentiment is a bit confused.
Also booster's top is fucking gorgeous from what I can see of it.
File that under "their hearts are in the right place".
Eh, I personally wouldn't. It'd feel more like they fulfill a social obligation but without even an ounce of care for the actual person its intended for.
Maaybe excusable if it is something that isn't obviously nonvegan, but that's a very thin chance.

I was going to say... I know just enough veggies and vegans that I'd be careful about buying meat-based food gifts for anyone without checking their preferences. (Also, for myself, while I'll eat chicken, I'd rather it was free range...) I guess non-dairy chocolates would be my fallback; I think I've only known one person for whom those wouldn't have been a fairly safe enough bet.
Yeah that is the thing. Non-dairy chocolate makes sense. But I think you do need to get general dietary restrictions/keep them in mind when getting a food gift don't want to gift a vegetarian meat, or someone who is allergic to citrus well most fruit platters.
He probably would do something like that
Yeah, Walky...is not wrong there, which is a part of why I had such a hard time buying Mike's death (There's a part of me that still expects him to stroll back into the comic and declare that he was never dead—or that he WAS and the strip has divorced itself from reality completely and he's just there again like nothing even happened.).
I don't know why but the thing with the Nintendo just makes me view Booster as even more insufferable.
It does come across as a little pretentious. I'll forgive it if this interaction ends with a game of Mario Kart, though.
I'm more caught up in how Walky keeps calling it a Nintendo vs a Switch, or even a Nintendo Switch like Booster is doing.
When he did it last comic, I wondered if Willis was trying to avoid dating the comic by keeping the reference generic.
Was the Switch even out when Dumbing of Age started or were we still on the Wii U?

We were still on the Wii when DoA launched (It launched in December of 2010; the Wii U didn't come out until 2012).
In hindsight, given the runaway success of the original Wii and the Switch, it's amazing how short the Wii U's lifespan really was. (Though it makes more sense if you view it as "The system that Nintendo had to make in order to get to the Switch).
EDIT: Okay, the fact that you seemingly can't preview edits to a post after initially making it...strikes me as a flaw.

How well does it match the trope?
