[Year long tally: 22 Nonsensical : 141 Realistic] Unfortunately, today’s comic does not feel realistic enough to get the realistic stamp from me. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ I hemmed and hawed for a long time trying to decide if this weighted more to the side of nonsensical or realistic. The dialogue is fairly realistic as far as the scenario goes, and even the paper version of “FaceBook” is handled in a realistic fashion. However, I ended up giving today’s strip a “nonsensical” rating because of the bluster and bombast of Jojo’s character. While Jojo may be “all that and more” in terms of class president, etc… when his character is in this mode, he does not ring true to me at all. In comparison, the last few days of Jojo playing at being a Superhero (albeit a bee superhero) rang true and were genuinely funny and enjoyable. This side of the “amazing, superior” Jojo typically makes me cringe instead of laugh.
