Superb use of “open balloons” in panel #2
And then there’s panel #4, utterly soul-crushing in its existential bleakness.
Rhetorical question …
Is Ellie standing in front of the women’s section of the magazines at the local bookstore?
There’s an episode of “Cheers” where Woody becomes convinced that his girlfriend Kelly worships Satan, because she belongs to a Catholic sect which diverges slightly from his own on a tenet or two.
So, we know that Ow’s approval, and one’s smart phone of choice, are non-negotiable.
Ellie does seem to attract the shallow ones, though.
What’s that just below Bea’s signature in panel #1?
Looks like a display rack for lollipops.
So I take it that grown man delinquent from 8/19 wasn’t a Samsung user, yet he failed to get Ow’s approval, I guess Ow doesn’t follow Ellie’s phone-screening policy.
So this is the kind of guy Ellie sways to become a clergyman, I guess we should trust her since she’s the owner of Pope Happy Cat IV.
Bea, a couple of months ago you said any potential motherhood for Ellie was up in the air, does this mean you’ve made a decision that Ellie does want children in the future? If she does I hope her critera is stricter than his phone type, she should at least check out his car too! XD
…Polite, yet pointed and PAINFUL.
I hope Ellie (and Ow) approve of Android users.
The Samsdung guy is not really equipped to join a convent. Besides he was not asking for marriage, perhaps he only wanted to see Paradise by the dashboard lights with her.
Samsdung? I think this romantic man learned a lesson about approaching a woman to ask for a date with his cell phone. Ellie formed negative opinions of him. Calling Ellie babes does not help him out either.
Angle of phone in frame 1…yeah, he’s taking a pic of her ass.
The wife-beater shirt didn’t have any bearing, though. That woman is a tech geek.
I wonder if she likes an “iPh One” or “And Roids” better?
Is this a flash back?
Funny. I’ve owned both, and I will stick with Samsung any day. iPhone finally water resistant in 2016. Samsung S4 (2013) waterproof – you could take pics underwater. iPhone too limited in technology and app choices and way toooo expensive. All three of my daughters switched to iPhones this last year and all three are trying to figure out how to get out of their contracts. It is good for people like Elle, it does give one the impression of fitting in and following the crowd. By the way, the “i” doesn’t stand for intelligence.
Actually, I don’t think it has anything to do with the phone. If he had an iPhone, she would have yelled the same thing. I don’t think she liked his approach. Calling a woman “babes” and using your phone to take a pic of her butt is not a good thing! She handled it well although I think a good slap would have worked better!!
You will also notice she smudged his lens in the third frame.
I guess Elle is Apple gal first
He’s been phone-zoned!
No wonder she’s single.
Poor guy… He thought being a heart-breaker was his job.
A Convent?! He bought a Samsdung… It’s way too late for that.
He didn’t ask to marry you, El. He just wants to take you out. I guess Ellie’s like my OC Buddy, not picky when it comes to men, just ‘exceedingly selective’.
I’d take a Samsdung over an Apphell any day. :)Isn’t a convent where nuns live? I don’t think they’d let a guy like that in there…
