Smooooth, Paulo.

Okay, now let’s set up a betting pool: Who thinks the following comments will be a war between people who are siding with Paulo for putting Mike down, and people who are angry at Paulo and group 1? Odds are 2:1 people! Place yer bets!

Way to go Paulo!
Now take that spelling test again :P

And yeah I could see Paulo writing “1v1 irl fagit!”

Edit: I was wondering what a flashback to them being kids had to do with the flower (“long term IOU?”) and then I realized that it was a flashback to last week and that’s Paulo buying a flower for Mike with his own money. It’s just the art made them look really young and short u.u

HongKat April 8, 2014, 7:01 AM EST.

Comment ID #278917

Yeah, I’m going to agree with others and say that Mike is overreacting a bit. If one of my friends did this to me, I’d think it was REALLY funny.

David likely wrote something similar on Paulo’s rose after all, and what did Paulo do? He stuck the flower in his hair and wore it around school all day. I’m willing to bet that one of the reasons that Paulo doesn’t seem to like Mike much is because of how serious Mike is all the time. He doesn’t handle humor very well.

Comment ID #278936

Anyone else think Mike’s going to blow up at Paulo same way he blew up at Lucy, now that he’s convinced he has a right not to get made fun of or hurt? Thus leading to Paulo exploding back at Mike “Oh god, this is what you did to her?” and hopefully start to make Mike realize he’s wrong and push everything with Lucy towards a resolution?
Well? Anyone? :)

modulusshift April 8, 2014, 10:21 PM EST.

Comment ID #278937


I don’t think Mike will blow up at Paulo. There is a LOT of subtext in this comic.

1. Even though Paulo borrowed the money for buying the friendship flower from Mike, it is still one of the only friendship flowers he bought besides the one for Abbey. It is implied that not even the girls that Paulo showed an interest in received friendship flowers from him, as the one to Rachel came from Daisy, not him.

2. Mike blew up at his ‘friends’ at the party because they never acted anything like friends towards him. Mike already had his ‘blow up’ moment, and if anything, established his attitude towards the cast. Yet, in this page, Mike is seen with just 1 out of the many friendship flowers that he received in class, implying that it is the one friendship flower he kept.

3. Given Mike’s attitude at the party, and given the fact that he kept the flower, I think that it’s safe to say that this one act in some way acknowledges that Mike feels that Paulo is a friend. At least, more so than anybody else right now.

That’s my interpretation. The beauty of this comic is that there can be many.
