    There is precedent. David McGrath, of the Amarillo Buzzards, a Major League Human Cannonball team was a midget. Yet he was called ‘Big D’.

    Oh, of course, it’s irony.
    Calling something the exact opposite of what it is.
    Like calling a short guy “Stretch.”
    Or Republicans the “Grand Old Party.”

    Why is Clyde wearing a heavy winter jacket in July?

    Way to recover, Clyde.
    -————————————-
    @SueB1863 — I think it probably has enough inside pockets to let him display and sell his heists.

    Lots of people who do that are schizophrenic, or have some other emotional disability that makes them feel vulnerable.

    I got this neanderthal at work that call’s me “big guy” and I’m 65 inches tall, 150 weight. This guy is built like a fridge. I tell him that’s not my name.

    -
    Clyde be standing
    Big L be sitting
    -
    Well, maybe not really, but we can’t see below the waist to know for sure.
    Making assumptions is dangerous.

    For some reason, when you’re short (I’m 4’ 10"), people assume you don’t like being short and it’s a compliment to call you “big guy” or some such. I never minded being short, and I don’t think I would have minded even if I’d been male. It’s part of who I am.

    I’m short too, 5’ even. I don’t mind but I could do without the short jokes. I went to talk to a kid’s parent in the neighborhood because he was throwing rocks and my daughter got hit…he told his aunt some midget lady was at the door.

    “I don’t think that means what you think it means”

    You can imply that type of irony, but you wouldn’t normally infer it.

    Sometimes Clyde is too much. But sometimes, as in today’s strip, I like him. He reminds me of people I know. You know when Clyde is not being truthful. This is important.
