    From what Roger since in the first panel, who is “they” of which he spoke? (So much for buying just eggs as Andy requested in the previous day’s strip.)

    It’s understandable that they’d go a little nuts when out shopping. If Andy had had her way, they’d have all died of deficiencies of protein, B12, vitamin C, etc. It’s one crazy diet she pushes.

    Can’t identify.
    Men have a list.
    They scope the terrain.
    They hunt down each item on the list, as efficiently as possible.
    Then leave as soon as they can.

    I was in Walmart. Said, how-ya-doin’ to some guy. He said, fine. Then he said, “No I’m not! I’m shopping!”

    This is not even cultural. I have observed exactly this same behavior in East African men shopping / avoiding shopping in little roadside dukas. The same abhorrence of having to shop with their wife (or wives; polygamy).

    It is physical anthropology.
    If they don’t do that, there’s no Y chromosome.

    I expect more from my cartoonists. Harumph.

    They say that you should eat before grocery shopping, so you won’t buy so much. But drinking before you go to the liquor store seems to have the opposite effect. Anybody need a 55 gallon drum of Ripple?

    My husband is very good at shopping, and we actually enjoy shopping together. With the girls involved, it’s downright fun. He’s as manly as a guy can get, but likes shopping.

    I fit that ‘male’ type. I once in a while go to the mall or big box store to stroll or get out for a while, but usually I’m on a mission to get what I want/need and get out.
    My brother seems the opposite—seems to buy much more than he planned to get. He even posted a rare occurrence on FB that he actually went to a store and got only what he went for. He impressed himself.

    But did you get the EGGS?

    I’m just one guy, but the only place I like to shop is at a bookstore (remember those, kids?). Give me two hours at Powell’s in Portland and I are a happy boy.

    Andy should’ve see this coming. Never send the two biggest eaters to a grocery store, especially given what she feeds them.

    Really? I mean, can you still buy Ripple?

    Vitamin C you get from fruits along with fructose and roughage. Not crazy at all. Though one should eat enough meat to get the B 12 though.

    Book stores and libraries are my place. Along with comic shops. Though have not been to the latter in at least 10 years.

    For men, shopping is something to get done, for women, shopping is something to do. Women shop, men raid.


    Having said that, I actually enjoy shopping with my wife. She’s fun to watch :). We play games. She’ll send me to get something in the grocery store and then move on. Then it becomes a game of hide and seek.


    The average housefly maintains a straight line for a longer period of time than my wife does in a grocery store.
