    It’s a reference to Super Smash Bros. Melee.

    Maybe to an extent, but they’re owned by the members, so they can only go so far.

    Sounds like it’s time to join a credit union instead!

    As a woman, I’m going to agree it’s a little sexist against men. (Also a tiny bit against women, but mostly men.) But considering the strip is (1) 20+ years old, and (2) written by who seems to be a rather arrogant man, I’m going to mostly chalk it up to acceptable exaggeration for both comedic effect and to make a point. Maybe not entirely, but mostly.

    Wow, a job where they want you to go home when you’re sick? I’ve never had a job in which they weren’t mad any time anyone called out sick. I never missed a full day when I had a sinus infection, bronchitis, and mono at the same time, and I had two coworkers who worked through staph. Sure, it’s a really terrible idea, but we had medical bills to pay.

    I agree. On the other hand, the answer to the question she DIDN’T ask is what got him in trouble.

    I tend to agree. On the other hand, if they’re exactly like other words, why use them, knowing people will be offended? Although this often isn’t the case, many times, they’re used for the purpose of being offensive, which certainly doesn’t help. (Of course, terms that use the name of God are an exception. People do have a genuine reason for being offended by those.)

    Personally, I choose not to use them at all, but I don’t mind people who do. Still, it seems to me that the polite thing to do is to reserve them for places they are accepted. When people do otherwise, it implies they aren’t concerned about being polite to others, whether it’s true or not.

    I missed whatever people are suddenly so upset about, so don’t take this as commentary on that situation. It’s just a general observation.

    I think I had one gym teacher ever who was actually like this. My high school gym teacher was perfectly nice everywhere except in class.

    Example: We were required to run 20 minutes at a time at least once a week without slowing down to walk. She was especially hard on my friend with asthma. Her asthma wasn’t under control even when she wasn’t in gym class, and all her teachers knew it. One day, my friend decided to push herself to teach this teacher a lesson. After she had an asthma attack in class and the paramedics had to be called, she eased up just a little.

    We also regularly played battle ball (similar to dodge ball with several balls at once) with volleyballs. Those of us who weren’t athletically inclined were bruised on a regular basis.

    Yes, on fountain drinks. But for whatever reason, root beer is rarely a fountain drink. (I tried to look up why, but my Google-fu failed me.) It typically comes in a bottle, without free refills.

    Granted, I haven’t seen all of Star Wars (which I recently started correcting), but I don’t understand why there would be a question. Star Wars doesn’t have Captain Picard.
