Polygamous: too have many spouses, usually of the opposite sex.

Don’t **** with me. I know my ****.

I can’t believe that Lucy believes Yashy. She knows almost everything about everybody else, so why can’t she see through Yashy?

Oh wait, I never knew the word “Polygamus”. No wonder I thought he was saying “Apologizing”

@ Mashermat: YES.

On a more general note: How did I not notice this chapter was titled after my favorite Queen song of all-time until now?!?

@Josue : Polygamous…. Although, polyamorous would probably fit better.

The Other Mike November 22, 2010, 3:34 AM EST.

@Lyucs : The black cat is Larken I think.

Isn’t that black cat with the bell Max from Housepets? Or is it just a coincidence?

hey its meh lolz March 31, 2011, 10:52 AM EST.

Comment ID #161653

Panel 15…****ing Leo from VG Cats. I recognize that bell ANYWHERE. But Leo had gray and white fur, not black fur. Silly cartoonist.

Is Augustus writing a suicide letter? Jesus, a little over-dramatic, much?

Comment ID #165364

Really? That’s the assumption you make?

Am I the only one who takes the plane-car to be a euphemism for Mike?

panels 6- 9… what the HELL just happened?

seriously, did you leave out 5-10 panels between each of those, because i couldn’t follow any of that.

Thanatos July 26, 2011, 1:13 PM EST.

Comment ID #174297

damn it, i meant panels 4-9.

i haven’t slept, im too busy torturing myself by reading this comic.

:question: Okay, wait. Did I miss something? What does Mike saying he’s not polygamous have to do with Lucy not believing him?

Pretty sure if someone were to take notes about me behind my back, I’d turn right around, break their nose, and proceed to burning their notebook… SIMPLE… AS… THAT!

WOAH hold up third to last panel. Rereading the comic again, is Amaya jealous of another girl talking to Sue?

*makes lesbian fanfics as well as platonic friend-jealousy fanfics*
