I mostly hear it through the dummy thicc meme which is admittedly hilarious.

Joke? Why are you calling it a joke? You drew a picture of two dudes hugging and wrote "I love hugs!" on it.

"Woke" is an adjective the way it's is. It's not difficult.

I understand that it's used as an adjective. It still doesn't sound right. *shrug* But it's a different culture.

As I understand it, "thicc", at least in writing, is a way to make it obvious you're not calling someone thick.

New storyline! Claire chopped off her hair!

And it looks like Jeph is experimenting with his art again. That or Pintsize's head has been dented so many times it will never be round again.

Feet.

I was not expecting Pintsize's tiny font punchline to be the focus of this storyline.

Shoes in the house is a whole thing. Most of the world considers it polite to take off your shoes when you're a guest in someone's house so you don't dirty it with your shoes, but I somehow picked up the idea that wearing shoes is part of being appropriately dressed for being around people. I consider it polite to wear my shoes in your home because I don't want to contaminate it with my nasty feet. I consider it polite to wear shoes in my own home when I have guests.

Feet need to be covered with an underwear layer and a streetwear layer when in public situations just like shirts and pants.

In this case, Marten has no guests, only housemates, so that doesn't really apply.

And, of course, some people just find feet gross, whether it's a personal predeliction, something trained by society, or, well, humans are just weird.

For me, it's just, do you even know what you've been stepping in? You can keep your disgusting shoes at the door, thanks. Maybe people should just start carrying around a pair of indoor shoes with them whenever they go visit someone's house.

My aunt has a "shoes off past the foyer" policy, but she does provide medical shoe covers for people who would rather keep them on.

I personally go around barefoot in my own home, socks at other people's. I hate shoes.

Barefoot in my own place, honestly. It's common for Asians to require shoes to be off at the foyer or equivalent thereof, and in the States, at least, they'll usually have something like a set of flip-flops specifically for guests that they can wear in the house. I know my late uncle had a literal barrel full of flip flops you could just grab from.

it's sandals and slippers at my house. Take your nasty mud-caked shoes off and leave them at the door. Put on nice clean easily sterilized foam sandals.

I was going to hold myself to changing into slippers whenever I got home, but I constantly forget to do so and end up walking around in my shoes until it's time for bed or I actually change into lounging clothes.

Sandals and slippers for me too. Shoes track stuff in and I'm not all that comfortable going barefoot.

Shoes come off at the door, and go in the boot tray next to it. No slippers, though; socks or bare feet depending on season. It's a comfort thing, really, though I suppose I do also have a desire to not track anything in. On the other hand, my nine-month-old son considers the boot tray and its contents to be just another set of toys on the floor, so that shoes tend to end up scattered all over the carpet each day, which is fine with us as long as he confines his chewing to shoelaces. There's a difference between a shoe being loose on the floor and being pressed into it with each step. I'm currently storing my dress shoes on the stairs, just out of his reach.

There is a bizarre-to-me belief in a fair number of people that feet exude some substance that is inherently unhygenic, or that feet natively carry or shed outside crud. I suspect that this lies somewhere in between people noticing that feet recently removed from shoes/socks usually do leave a film of sweat and other such stuff that's been captured in the shoe, and that people tend to notice more the accumulation of dirt and dust on the foot than on the soles of shoes.

And yes, sometimes (usually in public areas such as restaurants or buses), the argument is about safety and/or the risk of spreading bodily fluids if the foot is wounded.

The Nacirema always wear foot coverings even in places not needed for safety or physical comfort because of their deep seated belief that such garments hold back the shameful demons that live in their feet.

Yeah, it's more magical than practical thinking.

"Nacirema" is a sociological joke about defamiliarizing the behaviors of Americans, as Nacirema is American spelled backward.
