Yup, now he’s stuck up there too. So…. Toni and Brad to the rescue!
Today’s strip is neato. It’s the cat’s pajamas. Really rad, y’know? A cracking whiz-banger! Like, totally…
Nothing personal, it’s only business.
Those among us who listen to a lot of AM talk radio would argue that as the business owner, Yeti has the right to terminate employment at any time for any reason. And Yeti is likely the type to offer absolutely no employment benefits so he’s under no legal obligation for anything regarding Daisy’s health care. A classic case of the fortunate asserting that “doing nothing” is a perfectly valid choice in exercising their personal freedom, while the unfortunate are deemed to deserve their fate because of poor personal choices. The implied social contract being “because I pay you, everything good you do becomes mine while anything bad that happens is your own fault and none of my business.”
While I agree with your “lack of consent” point 100%, I would argue that the more salient difference between the two situations is “expectation of privacy.” Bernice would absolutely expect privacy for anything occurring in her bedroom. But Les is doing something outside and in full public view. Gunther is under no real obligation to warn Les about being recorded (Gunther has the right to record anything in the place where he lives) but consent before posting it to social media is another matter. Would it be illegal to post without consent? That’s a tricky one and would likely depend largely on state law which would vary across the country. But either way, I’d agree it would be unethical without consent.
Back in the day, I remember seeing Player open three times for three different headliners in less than a year. Established a long-running joke for me and my friends at the start of every other show, “What… no Player?”
Now that’s one high-IQ haiku!
Sorry I missed your earlier post and the ensuing comments. I had no idea. Perhaps the context was very different even though the actions are similar??
Gunther — grab your phone and start videoing this. You’ve got the followers and Les’ bumbling could soon provide viral, meme-worthy GOLD!!
Good morning™, soon-to-be canary-like singers?
Poor Daisy better hope that Tracy and Sam go directly into the museum to find that the meteorite is missing and track the escape route from there. If they’ve found the van instead and arrest Yeti there, he’s likely to be really coldhearted and say that he was acting alone!
Daisy, Daisy… Yeti abandoned you
But Dick Tracy, soon may come into view
Cooperate and you’ll be smart
He knows that you shot the dart
So cop a plea, then you and Yeti
Won’t share a cell for two!
Yeti would tell you he’s not being impulsive or inconsistent, he’s just pursuing a strategy of “diversified asset acquisition.”
