    I like how Girl’s closing statement sums up the economic and cultural situation that she bemoans through the rest of the comic.

    I laughed at Cat’s punchline. Is that a brick punchline?

    I want Cat to name all the colors from now on.

    Cat’s expression in the second to last panel makes me laugh each time I look. And I have looked several times.

    In an age of consumption, we have all become consumptives.

    The growth of the points at the ends of Girl’s hair is the canary in our collective cultural coalmine.

    I laughed at smurfstain blue yesterday. I am still laughing today. Thank you.

    “Weathered by machines approximating carefree exuberance.” Yes!

    I shall ever more think of stone washed jeans as being “smurfstain blue” approximations of exuberance.

    Back when Levi’s and Wranglers were authentic, your legs would turn smurfstain blue from the indigo dye during the first couple weeks of wear.
