    So I went and looked at the Chickweed Lane strips after that, out of morbid curiosity.
    First, a little more context: it seems that Monty wants to gradually replace humanity with cockroaches because we're made in His image, and yet we embarrass Him by how we behave.
    And it seems that the cast talked ambiguously-God out of it by... skinny dipping. (And the actually good character, above, talking earnestly and respectfully with Him.)
    Then, after a whole bunch of filler interjections (Sunday comics, etc) of men being distracted by random snoggings from assorted hot wimmen, it eventually moved on to another alleged plot (it's very silly, I shan't describe it) and I punched out.

    Two thoughts:
    One, going by some interpretations of the OT, the Creator being vain and insecure as fuck, and expecting adoration from His creations while treating them like... well, like this, is actually rather on brand. :/
    Two, I've given Chris Claremont shit for years for putting his fetishes into his run of X-Men whenever he could, but he's got nothing on Brooke McEldowney.
    This is a syndicated newspaper comic that's like 90% snogging and legs, 9% "jokes", and 1% "plot." For all that it's relatively softcore, I think it might compare with or even outdo the likes of Alfie or Oglaf.

    Ok I couldn't help but go back myself to read more of the story, having no longer any strong feelings about any of the characters made it much easier. And yeah, dude interrupts the throughline of the story multiple times for sexual interest, but it's all "hush-hush, say no more." style sexuality. It reminds me very much of a very old SNL sketch with Jon Lovitz called "Randy Theater" or similar, where Lovitz is narrating an oh-so-sexual interaction between an 18th century lady and her footman, with all sorts of hints and teases as to what they might be up to. Eventually the footman says the equivalent of "let's fuck" and the lady agrees, only to have the randy host get very upset and angry that the implicit has been made explicit.

    So yeah, 9 Chickweed Lane is a sex comic without the sex. 10 years ago I was too prudish to read sex comics outright, so this would have been right up my alley (and I probably would have said this had nothing to do with sex, ha ha. I am the outraged bawdy theater narrator).

    Aside from the sex, there's really no there there. It's just not anything. I imagine Monty was intended to be some sort of witty take on a god-figure, but he's just so boring.

    Unfortunately, the breeding population of Mars was entirely sysadmins, resulting in dangerous founder effects. On the plus side, their revolution against Earth will be entirely passive-aggressive.

    Some commenters here think that I overread smugness into Pluggers panels. For instance, my first instinct is to interpret this panel as saying that walking into a chain coffee shop and just ordering a coffee (which, for the record, is what I do, and is something that workers at said coffee chains are perfectly happy to hear, you’re not blowing their minds or anything) is a morally superior act that really sticks it to the big city liberal millennials with their damn frappuccino macchiatos and such. But maybe I’m wrong! Maybe this is just meant to be a value-neutral descriptor of plugger consumer habits, and stringing together a series of nonsense fauxtalian terms isn’t meant as a slight towards the people who actually do order those drinks, at all. If that’s the case, I would propose that the real plugger here, in a country where working-class people are more likely to be in retail than manufacturing jobs, is the slouched, middle-aged, minimum-wage-earning balding-with-a-ponytail dog-man behind the counter, and not Andy Bear, who presumably has a solid pension and set of benefits from his union construction job. Dog-man is probably thrilled to get a plain coffee order, since that’s much less complicated to make! Truly, Andy’s choice is an act of solidarity!

    Pluggers have never tried out alternative flavors and are terrified at the thought of what might happen if they did.

    I'd say that I resemble that remark, but apparently Ancestry thinks northern Italy is French, so...
