Lust And Fond

Link To Today’s Strip

Good Lord. There are few things as repugnant as a FW-style sexual interlude, what with the grotesque foreplay banter and all. We still don’t know why Jessica was in California for all that time in the first place but at least we can rest easy knowing that Boy Lisa and Jessica are, at least temporarily, sexually satiated. I wonder if they exchange wry banter throughout the entire act?

“Oh God I’m coming!”

“Good! As long as you aren’t going again! (smirk)”

Shudder. I mean who is this garbage really for? There can’t possibly be any actual Boy Lisa and Jessica fans out there, can there? The way he chooses certain characters to focus on while completely ignoring other ones just fascinates me, as there’s no rhyme, reason or pattern to it at all. For years after he first came back Boy Lisa couldn’t get more than a day or two to himself but suddenly he’s in the spotlight all the time now and, weirdly enough, it isn’t even Lisa-related anymore. His job, his wife, his son, his mothers…it’s Boy Lisa overload.

    The strip hasn’t dropped yet on Comics Kingdom but I shudder to think what’s in store.

    Batiuk has been super weird when it comes to Darin and Jess’s relationship. I mean when it started it was all about how for some strange reason, Jessica, the hot, popular girl in the school, somehow really, really wanted to screw his brains out, which was bizarre and distasteful for multiple reasons.

    I can guarantee you that abstinence from reading Funky Winkerbean does not make one fonder of ANY of its characters.

  4. Batiuk is certainly a master at making characters that are utterly despicable. Hollywood should hire him, tell him he’s creating “hero” characters, and then place the results in the “villain” roles.

    Is there a single likeable character? I know people are fond of Buddy, but he’s rarely in the strip.

    “Crazy’ll work, by which I mean I will totally bang Crazy Harry if you don’t get your hinder in here right now! And it won’t be the first time, either!”

    This awkward and repulsive “love’ talk leaves us with one question: “Who shall interruptus the coitus?”

    Will it be the fruit of their ‘love’ or his adoptive mother who, if she can’t get any, is gonna make damn sure no one else does?

    “Crazy is not fond.”
    “Crazy’ll work.”
    Oh god. Are they having a threesome with Crazy?

    I sure hope they set Skyler up in front of a TV or tablet. Otherwise that kid is wandering out into traffic Pet Semetary style.

    Batiuk wanted to use his abstinence joke, imagine if he chose one of the other couples in this strip. Small blessings.

  10. Let’s just see if this means Skylar is going to be a big brother in whatever Funkyverse time equivalent of nine months is.

      Which would violate TomBa’s apparent “only child rule”. Most of the main characters (Funky, Les, Crazy Harry, Bull, John, Becky) seem to have no siblings.

    By daily comic strip standards, today’s episode is fairly lurid.

  12. This comic could use 1000% less fucking.

  13. Buckeye Feculence

    Ick! I’m guessing the author was having a horny fantasy of her when he came up with this.

  14. Gerard Plourde

    Has TomBa been reading 9 Chickweed Lane and Pibgorn again?

  15. LTPFTR

    Maybe we’re seeing a shift of author avatar from Les to Darin?

    They have no doubt left Skyler with his Grandmother (unless they are going to have sex in HER house which is too much even for me to imagine) – however in this case we shall pass over the damage THIS is going to do to the child in silence. He’s suffered enough.
