I love how the club is connected to her kitchen somehow. Or that she has a "CLUB" in her house.

Or that she left the cup from Mom in the ladies' room of the club?

Next I'd like to see someone get all hot and bothered about "put your hands in the air like you just don't care". Seriously, if I don't care, my hands are staying at my sides where they belong.

Kids, this is one of the reasons why you don't just follow random advice from songs.

There is probably a bit of time and travel between the two frames.

I suspect this is an accurate representation of LMFAO's house. And Ke$ha's. And Flo Rida's. And good lord I've been watching too much Todd in the Shadows lately.

I used to be like that, but then I realized that in order to not be so literal minded you gotta "read between the lines". And in order to decode what the other person says, you have to get into their head and have some degree of empathy. So this requires Theory of Mind, the psychological ability to put oneself in another's shoes, the ability to empathize.

A scientific way to be more social :P

I'm not normally one to complain about the humor, but really, this is Sunday morning paper level. This is "Marvin" or "B.C.".

*gasp* I hope this doesn't signal the imminent end of the comic!

Is there anyone here who actually laughed at this comic? Not laughed at how pathetic an attempt at humor it is, but because they genuinely thought this was funny.
