Unlike Mason, I was totally expecting Cindy in today’s strip. I did not expect her to be on her third tank top this week, so that’s something.
Cindy’s tepid response to Mason in the second panel is obviously driven by her insecurity, which is especially heightened when the subject of Smokey The Bear’s greatest nemesis, Marianne Winters, is brought up. That’s been the theme all week and it sure ain’t changing now. She, however, does have a worthwhile reason to be irritated with Mason here.
Cindy is on set to shoot for this Cliff Anger documentary that buddyblog’s young, hepcat managers inexplicably think is relevant to its audience of online news consumers and Mason, after hearing this, follows that by claiming that this is a good day for her to be on set… because he’s shooting his first scenes with Marianne Winters today. What?
Why is it a good day for Cindy to be shooting her Cliff Anger documentary on set? Is Cliff even on set today? Has his “small role” even been written yet? If these are Cliff’s “first scenes” with Marianne Winters then why did Mason talk about them sharing the car explosion scenes shot months ago in Cleveland?
Bipolar or not, that’s worth a Rex Morgan pissyface.
