Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Social Entropy++: AWESOME POST in "Webcomic Saturday Market", by Gaslight
Yeah, but the funny thing is that Wendy's is a multimillion dollar corporation built up from nothing by an adopted kid born to a young unmarried mother he never knew who started working when he was 12, and who after achieving success became a well-known philanthropist supporting and promoting adoption and educational opportunities for disadvantaged kids. So, basically, a guy with the determination and work ethic that depressed comic protagonist dude seems to lack.
Seen in that light, the use of Wendy's as the symbolic scapegoat on which comic book guy blames his failed and empty life, rather than addressing his own laziness and lack of vision or purpose, becomes (unintentionally?) hilarious.
Seriously, I get the idea of the disillusioned 20-something struggling to find a meaningful place in the world and still pay the rent, I know all about that. But the comic, though amusing in part, is so ridiculous that it makes it impossible to sympathize with the protagonist and does all those disillusioned 20-somethings it's obviously trying to represent a huge disservice...unless the whole thing is a subtle parody and the joke is actually on 3000 oblivious Reddit up-voters, which is a possibility I can't rule out.
