I never quite understood the inconsistency of people wearing cloths, like Daisy, she is naked like 95% of the time, and then wears a black shirt when swimming + that uniform for cheerleading, people are walking around naked constantly, but this makes it funny :D

It was actually pretty ironic :P Also Lucy is really making the summer dress work in the last panel, maybe it’s the glasses o.O

David actually sounds pretty logical at this point… O.O

Maybe I can help you people understand. In most furry comics the reason the animals don’t wear clothes is because they have fur which covers their privates. However, when they get wet their fur sticks to their bodies, making their privates visible. They must wear clothing when wet for this reason.

Unless you want to see what they hide under their fur. If it were a girl in this situation I doubt anybody would complain. I know I wouldn’t if it were Lucy we were talking about, not David.

Dammit Koren, we really didn’t need logic in this comic - you’ve completely ruined it for everyone now!

(in case you couldn’t tell, that was a joke - Koren’s comment makes a great deal of sense)

When you’re as obsessed about furries as Koren is, you enjoy spouting that kind of knowledge. And yet the ironic part is that he’s the most illogical guy I know. You should read his “stories.”

*Gawks at Lucy* I have never been so attracted to my own gender before. She is f*cking HOT

@Koren Wait, wait, wait… But why do they wear clothes when they’re not going to get wet at all? Like the cheerleading outfits/clothes at the prep-rally? *Is still confused*

It was at a beach party,
Everyone had matching towels,
Somebody went under a dock,
And there they found a rock,
Except, it wasn’t a rock,
It was a rock, LOBSTER!
*Duuun, duuun, Duuun, duuun, dun-dun-dun, dun-dun, du nu nu nu nu* ROCK LOBSTER!

The reason they wear clothes now is because if they get wet their fur will go flat against them (figure it out). In the older comics they just quickly dry off. That is my hypothesis.

Comment ID #159831

@SamFurry that’s interesting, I had exactly the same thought (and I checked and when Lucy and Mike almost drown Lucy dries off incredibly quickly and Mike doesn’t appear to have touched any water other than what he got in his lungs) Of course, that doesn’t explain why Taeshi can draw them in the shower …

Really the whole thing’s just so David can show off his mad fourth-wall breaking skillz a bit so they won’t be as surprising later in the arc.

Why are they browbeating David so damn hard? Jesus, there is no other time where people wear clothes. I guess he really does hate change…

This is by FAR my favorite chapter, you do humor so much better then drama. Some of it is a bit predictable and cliche, but it’s still funny.

I thought nudity is “casual wear” in the world of BCB.
Why are they teasing him when he has “casual wear” on? :question:
