Mary's Coping Skills on Full Display

September 1, 2009

Bob assessment seems fair enough -- Mary looks like a reasonable person. She'll probably understand...

September 2, 2009

Oh...nope, wait, she didn't understand at all. And I'm not referring to the job opportunity. Mary can't even handle taking the conversation into a different room. She clearly used to expecting the worst from her deadbeat husband. They can't even afford cable. Just look at their daughter, eyes glued to the blank screen, head adrift in a pool of her own really boring adventures.

Meanwhile, in Panel 3...fuck, you know what? No.

Bob Looks for a Job in the Woods, Actually Finds One

August 28, 2009
Undeterred by his municipality's slumping job market, Bob roams an unknown tract of wildnerness in pursuit of a steady paycheck.

Bob is not running out of ways to say that he needs the poaching money but lacks the resolve to commit a crime. Where did that dog go?
