Sweatin’ To The Creepies

Is today’s strip the first time Funky has gotten a positive reaction from Fitness Girl? Heck, is this the first time Funky has gotten a positive reaction from anyone in years? I think yes to the former but obviously no to the latter (see Thursday’s strip). Still, this strip usually holds Funky in such contempt that today feels like the first time someone has returned a smile to him in ages.

Giving her video of him working out is kinda creepy though. Where’s Rachel when you need her?

Fitness Girl could have used Rachel in 2014 too…

  1. It’s in a jewel case and everything.

    Even more unsettling, Funky apparently has access to video of who knows how many people working out. I’m pretty sure that qualifies as some sort of harassment.

  3. Darn it! When I saw that person with her back facing me last week. I was hoping against all hope it would be Susan. BUT NOOOOOO! Instead the whole week was megawaste. Not of the 1042 hanging plotlines ended or progress. To cap it all off, we have the Funky working out with Neo-Nazi Fitness Woman. That trope should’ve been buried before it started.

    Fitness Girl checking in as grab-bag week draws to a sad close. She’s practically a regular now. I’d love to see an actual tally of FW character appearances…the most, the fewest, the longest gap between appearances and etc. But someone would have to do the work and I wouldn’t wish that upon anyone, especially myself. And computer software isn’t advanced enough yet to detect the difference between, say, Holly and Harriet yet.

    Or, you know, she could’ve checked at the desk when you signed in.

    Asking a computer to analyze Funky Winkerbean seems like the catalyst for. Skynet-esque annihilation of mankind.

    Creepy. Simply creepy.

    “It’s a video of me… you know… ‘working out’… wink wink… nudge nudge.”

    Should I even ask why the gym is always empty, except for Flunky and Frau Blucher? Should I ask how a guy who has been working with a personal trainer still looks like a huge, pasty ball of raw pizza dough? And should I ask why Flunky is wearing a well-used No Pest Strip ™ around his neck?

    I understand the empty gym. No, it has nothing to do with all the fat people in this comic strip. It would simply require BatLazy to expend the time and effort to DRAW people working out. Won’t happen.

    What I don’t understand is whether Flunky is working out because he’s motivated to do so, of if this still goes back to blubbery Holleeeee forcing him to do it. Heeyeah, that was an all-time irony. “Funky, you are fat. You need to hit the gym with a personal trainer. Now hand me that other pork chop over there. No, the big one. Oh, shit – just gimme both of them.”

    It’s clear he’d really rather be somewhere else. And it’s clear his trainer doesn’t believe he’s motivated. Why else would be feel he has to offer some kind of proof that he got off his fat ass without someone breathing down his sweaty neck?

  9. And thus we end a week whose obvious point is “Scenes Of People Meekly Marching Towards The Grave,,,,,And Loving It.”
