    I think of all the amazing and funny PA strips I've seen this one is my favorite. To me this is the perfect example of what a good comic strips is all about. Also-Cilantro's hair is <3

    The name Cilantro is the best part. I wonder what other ideas there were for names.

    His face in the last panel is the new standard for "Ask me if I give a fuck".

    The real question is: Will we ever see Gabe missing that bit of ear again?

    I wonder if they considered any alternative spellings:

    Cylantro

    Cilantreaux

    Gotta stand out from all the other Cilantros in your school

    The art in panel three, this is the payoff to Gabe stretching his art muscles the last few months.

    DMC = Devil May Cry? also, I fat fingered it when trying to hit the quote button and hit the agree button instead.

    Not sure why my brain defaulted to "RunDMC" and I know nothing about that groups history or if anyone ruined it or anything

    You can hit the agree button again to unagree, if you want.

    Still not sure if Cilantro is genuinely that bad, considers that a style, or if it was punishment towards Gabe fore the terrible joke.

    Her sister Coriander is much better at coloring roots.

    Considering the missing chunk of ear, pretty sure it's punishment.

    I do wonder about the hairdresser adding hair in some places. Is this a stylist or a hairomancer?

    In regards to the Gorillaz comparison: I actually thought the same thing on The Last Game strip. I figured it was because you don't often see people draw characters in profile.

    I was a high school speech and debate coach. Every single year, some kid would join the team and make the joke, "I'm going to be a master-debater." This strip took me back to that...

    I'm really surprised nobody has mentioned baking yet. As far as I'm aware, that is the easiest of this class of jokes.

    My Communication degree will help me in many aspects of the corporate world as well as my personal life. This degree will truly help me be a cunning linguist.

    Another one I heard a lot. I actually had a debate captain who wanted to put master debater and cunning linguist on our school T-shirt. Since I wanted to keep my job, I had to veto that for the high school crowd. Although I do believe it might have been our most popular design EVER if I'd been cool enough to let it slide.

    I'm not sure that's a 'don't give a fuck' expression at the end. I think Gabe understands he got just what he deserved. That's acceptance. I think the character just gained a teensy bit of wisdom.

    Not that it's going to change him all that much lol. The don't give a fuck/worth it shrug is next, probably.
