Deflocked's Mamet and Girl Scout Cookies - An Unhealthy Obsessionby Stephen Roth
Anyone familiar with Mamet, the pugnacious, thin-wooled sheep from DeFlocked, knows that he doesn't do anything halfway. And if you should happen to say or do something to draws his ire - well, prepare yourself for a whole lot of all-caps shouting, hyper-aggressive posturing, and self-righeous indignation.
Case in point: no character is better at getting under Mamet's skin that the Girl Scout selling cookies, a recurring DeFlocked gag.
Each year, Mamet vows to resist the temptation of Thin Mints, Lemonades, and other Girl Scout cookie flavors. Each year, he fails. Credit DeFlocked creator Jeff Corriveau for creating new and inventive ways for the Girl Scout to trick Mamet into buying the cookies, securing her quota for another year and, more often than not, sending him into a rage.
"The thing that's great about Mamet is that he can take his 'humor' - the Greek kind - to extreme ends of the spectrum. He can be as strong-willed with his ignorance as he can with his arrogance," Corriveau said in a recent GoComics interview.
Below are a few of our favorite showdowns between Mamet and those tasty, irresistable Girl Scout cookies.
