Because bacon makes everything better! :D
Eh, yes and no. The comic’s made a point of not dwelling on the matter too much, but it has hinted that at least some of the usual Victorian perceptions still exist, though definitely downplayed. Like Ms. Ashwin indicated, she’s not really THAT focused on historical accuracy here.
Still, I think it’s worth remembering that detail of the Victorian perception on the matter, for some additional context and mood setting.
To be perfectly fair, Jon did seem to be a lot more capable and “normal” in the early years of the strip. Then something happened around the middle that caused him to devolve into the idiot he’s better known as now.
Personally, I liked Jon better in the early years, but that’s just me.
Knowing Linton, he probably is trying too hard.
Personally, I think he’s really just not in a hurry to be in a relationship right now. It happens, and is fairly normal. Know plenty of kids who were the same way at that age, myself included.
I’m not sure what the bird is supposed to be exactly, but some kind of heron seems like as good a guess as any.
It is my understanding that yoga does help you to become more flexible the more you do it, so being a bit “stiff” starting out is normal.
Still…I’ve never done yoga myself, but I’d imagine the first few times can be a little…uncomfortable…for the body.
English majors, rejoice!
I got it straight away. I still occasionally wonder just what that thing is.
The trick is to not think too hard about where that muzzle’s been.
