Sonnetday, October 1

A sonnet I’ve written for today’s strip
Which was not available for preview
As such, I can’t really comment or quip
And must leave the snarking up to all you

I suppose I could guess what happens next
With this strip, I’m not sure that’s very hard
Cindy will sulk, leaving us readers vexed
Despite the years leaving her barely marred

Her insecure behavior knows no end
We’ve seen it on multiple weeks this year
That is an awful lot of time to spend
On the terrible gag that’s Cindy’s fear

One hopes this story arc ends here and now
Unless next week is about Les, somehow

    If she thinks of him as a big brother, how old is she supposed to be? Mason isn’t really old at all himself. And that should really make those kissing scenes awkward?

  2. It’s not supposed to be revealed until the third Starbuck Jones movie that he and Jupiter are brother and sister.

  3. Tomorrow, Cindy figures it out: Mason is like a brother to her? They’re practicing incest!

    Duh. Cindy’s stupid “I’m an insecure mess” act isn’t just old, it’s fossilized. He’s an actor, OF COURSE he’s going to work with actresses and, generally speaking, actresses tend to skew toward the attractive side. So unless he’s going to be doing a lot of “Driving Miss Daisy”-type films, she’d better get used to it.

    You know what would be real funny here? If in the next strip, the young hunky actor playing Mason’s young ward comes over and is all thrilled to see Mason, and hugs him. And then Mason introduces him to Cindy and says he’s bi . . . polar too.

    It’s sort of funny how BatHack pretty much skipped over and ignored Cindy’s entire career so he could have her regress back into the obnoxious snotty insecure vapid Act I Cindy, like she learned absolutely nothing during her successful TV news career and experienced no personal growth whatsoever. Not “ha ha” funny, of course, but “wow, BanTom couldn’t write his way out of a soggy paper bag” funny.

    Have you ever tried to write on a soggy paper bag? It ain’t easy, let me tell ya.

  8. If pressed, he could probably point to an arc that had her try to apologize to a victim only to get forgiven because no one cares about high school any longer and use that as giving her license to be stupid and mean again.

    In real life, no one would say Cindy’s line; and if they did, their fiancee would be mortified.

  10. Geez, with the way Cindy’s behaving, Marianne is going to fuck Mason just for spite.

  11. Wow, Cindy! Don’t hold back. Tell me what you really think!

  12. It’s interesting, isn’t it? The only characters who are pleasant and polite are the outsiders, like Mason and Marianne. Even Clay what’s his name of CME was openly welcoming and complimentary toward Les.

    The core cast, on the other hand, are miserable nasty pieces of work. Not a nice one in the bunch. It’s like they live for zingers and just don’t care how awful they come across

    @beckoningchasm,

    “The core cast, on the other hand, are miserable nasty pieces of work. Not a nice one in the bunch. It’s like they live for zingers and just don’t care how awful they come across”

    I guess TB doesn’t like them any more than we do.
