because Claire gives everyone a boner
Have you accepted that there is only one God and that Muhammad(PBUH) is his messenger?
Meh.. back in '07-'10 it was fine. Then Stabbing 2.0 happened and everything changed.
Aren't these Islam propaganda pieces done by that porn guy, Tekuho?
I mean, seriously, put up a few of these next to that guy's porn.
It's the SAME GUY.
Why is a porn guy doing Islamic propaganda pieces?
>Congrats on finally have a fat girl in your comic, you depicted her SOOO well! I understand that not ever girl is rail thin like Dora and curvy like Faye so its nice to see a REAL woman like Marigold in your comic. I have to give you props for having the courage to tackle such a sensitive issue too. I mean she did have any rolls, or stretch marks or even a muffin top, and I think that’s great. Ya, put her in a bikini, break down those walls. Your a regular Gobachev my friend. Lets just say keep up the good work, next you can depict the “fatty” Marigold having a “fat issue” and being told its okay to be fat and its whats inside that matters. You can even end it with a butt joke like you always do.
Inconclusion, the above paragraph was sarcastically written. Try not to insult women anymore Jeph, I know its not what you intended but that doesn’t meant its not what you did.
So cute. Fuck the trap, Martyn, fuck that trap's brains out.
> Of course, I admire Claire as an academic, an equal and intellectual person, honest, cough.
I don't give a shit about the tranny, all I want to see is more cute robots crushing on humans.
Okay, I can't let this stand: The Marquis de Vibraye (not "Vibrate" come the fuck on) in named the figurine he found "Venus Impudique" to invert the term "modest venus" (for figurines in which the figure attempts to hide her breasts and crotch from view). His figurine hides nothing, thus; "immodest". The "Venus" is present to contexualize and point to this reference, not as a joke about the figure itself.
"Hey guys, you've seen the Modest Venus. Well, here's an IMMODEST one!"
There are no gods and Dawkind is here to tell you.
>obesity has never been attractive
>you're just as wrong as them
i mean the pic
Its 70% wrong, i bet if i invest some time 90% wrong.
Therefore you are just like the ones using these as arguments for their obesity.
And in the end you are a extremist, just on the other side of the scala.
>Therefore you are just like the ones using these as arguments for their obesity
Except there is no argument for obesity. It is objectively unhealthy and unpleasant.
I understand that being a fatass makes you upset by that image but all is not lost, brah...
Obesity yes. Medically proven as unhealthy, no argument. Being overweight though is a different story. A girl having a pot or a big arse and hips is no cause for shaming her.
If you're turned off by it, that's fine. But calling someone out on it is the equivalent of you being approached in public by a person and told "your face is a fucking mess you ugly cunt" You don't behave that way because you're not a complete piece of shit.
No one is calling anyone out for being "a tiny bit overweight". If anyone is the target of any aggression, it's people who deny that there's any drawbacks to being fat.
Quit being so defensive
Fat girls need to stop attaching themselves to "thick girls". Most "plus-sized" models themselves are ~140-190 lbs on average; they're not landwhales and have good body proportions/facial aesthetics to begin with. All women are fooled by thinner, prettier models into buying clothes that don't change how they look, but fatties somehow turn this industry trick into poster children of a social crusade.
>Except there is no argument for obesity.
There are some, but they only are valid for a minority.
So yes, overall there are no arguments.
>upset by that image
im upset because the information is wrong.
The Venus is radiocarbon dated and about 25.000 years old. So one argument wrong.
Than Rembrandt wasnt the only one. As the same time there was Rubens who used chunky woman too. Second wrong.
So please at least use Rubens as your bait, he is the synonym for this.
Its just as wrong as "muh fertility", cause we dont know shit about their religion or believes.
Maybe Venus was just a monster to scare bad ghost.
And this is why i call this as dumb as the fatty defender. Only your name could be the skin and bones defender.
Yeah, but they pull this shit with actual women, too. If a man stares at the local beauty the nearby fatties call themselves the "real women" while the actual attractive one is "fake" by some unspecified standard. It's all projection of insecurity, nothing more.
What is going on with Emily's face? It just looks so wrong for reasons I can't quite explain. Everyone else in there looks normal for this shit but fuck man Emily is throwing weird creep vibes.
Okay. Yeah, she does. Now I think I get what the issue is. The spacing and coloring between the eyes and the eyebrows in those panels throw off the face of their shape and stuff.
where the fuck is raven? she's not gone, she's been in the strip in the last 2 years. so now he' taking ANOTHER established character and giving them a job at that stupid coffee shop. pretty soon Marten and Claire are going to be jacking each other off in the window to draw in customers
The Real Woman movement is retarded body shaming which is used by retarded landwhales as a defense against criticisms of their lifestyles.
It states that women only stay fit and thin to appeal to the standards of men instead of for health or out of personal dedication.
They use the false ideal that back in the past people used to only like fat chicks to appeal to tradition, and to attempt to invalidate modern standards of beauty.
A good example of this is that Buzzfeed video where everyone before 1980 was a landwhale, and everything afterwards was written about in biting text.
no, she comes and goes, she's getting a doctorate but still works there. last strip I could find was from 2011 but he never wrote her out. and I'm sickened with myself for knowing that
This is the last one mentioned on the wiki. Long ago but she's obviously working there.
Funny, a few strips later is the last time the band was seen doing anything.
Here's the second comic that came out today.
Emily apparently really IS working at the coffee shop now, since Jeph apparently doesn't know any other way to keep people from disappearing from the strip and Dora hires exclusively via nepotism.
>since Jeph apparently doesn't know any other way to keep people from disappearing from the strip and Dora hires exclusively via nepotism
Didn't save Steve's girlfriend or Penelope.
Neither of them have done anything
Shit, I forgot they even had a band.
Wasn't Marten having a whole identity crisis for a while that never got resolved? Wasn't he trying to figure out what he wanted, and where his future was going, and trying to figure out how to get out of the rut his life was in? What happened to that?
he fucked the tranny instead, so he resolved his identity crisis by identifying as a faggot
They still show up occasionally, and once every couple months one of them will get a line of dialogue. It's not much, but Jeph remembers they exist. It's not like they're that third black intern at the library who just evaporated one day.
He got together with Claire. That's not a joke; it literally stopped on a dime right when Jeph switched lanes to the Marten x Claire relationship. The "quarter-life crisis" bit just got dropped stone dead.
In his defense the bookshelf is drawn in a way that divides panel 2.
Jeph officially put Gabby on the bus last year.
I contend that the best thing Jeph could have done was to write Marten out of the comic for a while. He literally contributes nothing at this point, and is a millstone when Jeph tries to cram him into the rest of the storylines. The best and most invigorating thing Jeph could have done for the strop would have been to just cut the chord and have Marten go back to California for a few months to "find himself" or something like that, and then reintroduced him later down the road with a clearer sense of purpose and the rest of the plot having had a chance to advance without dragging him along with it.
But no, instead he went with the Hail Mary throw of hooking him up with Claire, and now that's basically his character. The (supposed) main character of the strip can now be most succinctly described as "Claire's Boyfriend", and Jeph seems fine with that.
Can you really call it slow when it isn't going anywhere?
I mean, you don't think he writes storylines or anything, do you? He just kind of throws shit at the readers and kind of runs with whatever they respond positively to.
It's like that scene from the Poochy episode of the Simpsons where they're evaluating the kids for ideas
>You want a comic that's comedic, dramatic with completely off the wall robot shenanigans?
The cherry at the top of it all is the fact that Jeph is completely incapable of doing anything competently.
QC was always slow but the last year or two has been quarter speed of the already glacial pace.
Jeph still fails even when his audience responds to things. The #1 request for a year was the Dora-Sven fallout yet all we got was a vague retrospective and a one-strip makeup. I actually thought that might be the point where their dreams were shattered and they pulled the Patron bux but, no, they're like battered spouses, always coming back for more.
>The #1 request for a year was the Dora-Sven fallout yet all we got was a vague retrospective and a one-strip makeup
That's not the shit he runs with.
He looks for which characters the fans think are the cutest and pushes them.
When you write stuff that actually deals with anything less than complete banality, people's opinions come into play, and Jeph hates differing opinions.
He can't even handle it when his hugbox of a forum fellates him most of the time, you think he could take someone interpreting his writing?
Being a little bit overweight might not be actively killing the girl, but it does make her a little bit less attractive to most men. It's the fatties who scream and cry when anyone implies otherwise that makes people angry enough to create images like >>77985083
Oh my god, that art is horrible. Its all mixed up. Claire face got super fat in that second panel, Hanners looks too much like anime, and Emily just looks like she got a face transplant.
Ew, just ew
I agree. I know Jeph's "trying" but it's just so ineffective because he refuses to learn the basics. He gets trapped in a rut of sub-mediocrity of being able to at least somewhat eyeball things due to muscle memory or something but take him out of that environment and he's back to high school level again.
Yeah, hes trying but hes not trying hard enough. Like take >>77991944
Claire looks good in panel 1, but ON MY GOD in panel 2 shes bloated and her hair is literally the shape of her head. Then in panel 3, its a lot more like panel 1.
In the end all you're saying boils down to nothing more than a guy wearing a "No fat chicks" shirt.
So, what? Did a fat chick turn you down for a date or something to trigger your grudge? Because you're going through an extreme amount of dialogue to essentially say "I dont like fat chicks"
I see a number of problems
>not properly defining what counts as "fat" for the purpose of the discussion
>use a simple google search as an argument for 3000 years of history rather than to point out how google filters everything that people have uploaded during the last five years according to what its database imagines to be your personal preferences
>use actual art historic analysis when it fits your purpose, but completely forego that in all the other cases. Like the highly stylized egyptian, classicist and symbolist art or in the case of those statues, a lot of which are plain mindless copies of older art or fashioned in the style of those mindless copies with even less thought wasted on how they originally looked like.
>assume that all the art that's from specific movements that had specific standards as to how people oughta look like had any bearing on what gave a majority of people boners IRL
>end it with biotroofs
Some fine American-made horseshoes we got here.
>because they're a decent person and you're compatible with them
You can't not be physically attracted to your partner.
If you're a good person and you're compatible, you become friends.
I really don't get it, how is she not fat enough? She looks distinct enough from the other characters, and a brief read tells me that she does struggle with her weight.
How fat would she need to be exactly to appease these people?
Would that be before or after she has a heart attack while simultaneously entering a diabetic coma?
apparently they wanted rolls and stretch marks
she's hideous enough with all those moles and pox marks covering her face, but she's still a beauty queen compared to the tumblr userbase apparently
>because they're a decent person and you're compatible with them?
Morbidly obese people lack discipline and tend to have problems beyond the weight itself. You're likely buying into a black hole of their emotional problems going down this path.
>looks dont last forever. ever seen an elderly couple?
Exactly. There would be no hope of improvement and morbidly obese people tend to not make it past middle age so all you'd be in for is dealing with late-life type loss in your 50s.
>How fat would she need to be exactly to appease these people
>He doesn't know about HEAS
Thank you, but the only award I need is to not have to read QC.
The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, then killing yourself because you know deep down that while you honestly do have a problem, you just can't live a clean life.
But Marten has only ever been involved with women, anon.
>I thought the red head was a tranny
Are you seriously implying that a heterosexual man being attracted to a trans-WOMAN is somehow any less straight than being attracted to a cis-woman?
Now, anon, that sounds very problematic, and such hateful rhetoric is simply not tolerated here.
>That nearly exact minute between posts
Secondly, I'm no prince, not fat but not super handsom, 5/10 at best, but I'd never expect anyone to force themselves into being in a relationship with me if they didn't find me physically attractive simply because our personalities or whatever meshed.
Thirdly, as for the act of asking this theoretical fat woman out requiring any particular depth is simply ridiculous. I don't even know where the notion comes from.
Is it meant to imply that there are no deep thin women? Is it meant to imply that I wouldn't not ask out a thin women if her personality wasn't as off putting as a fat woman's fatness?
I just don't know.
>his nose turns red...
There's one where he turns into a stereotypical SJW, but I never saved it
>don't see the issue
>Just randomly handed out jobs to her staff and some random person in the shop
>Someone she knows pretty well
>Owning a shop and forgetting who works there
>Firing Faye for working while intoxicated while dating a horrible cunt that does the same thing
Dora literally does nothing right
How bumblasted do you have to be to make that image (or save it)
Also pic related was the top sex icon of the 60s
She died in 1962 and gained a lot of weight toward the end. Still attractive but I imagine she would have started to have difficulty finding work had she not died.
We're really not there yet. Outside the context of this thread, no one would know what the fuck that was.
Also, it's too long, and the shapes are less clearly defined from panel to panel to really work. This ain't the next Loss
That photo shoot happened while she was literally pregnant.
People act like those pictures present Marilyn at her peak attractiveness when really it was more of a "hey even though I'm pregnant I don't look that bad" type of thing.
Agreed. At least by that point. Early Marilyn is qt.
Also, almost nobody would call her that fat. She's a little plump at most.
She still barely has a belly, while the people posting that in their defense have a good 15~30 pounds on her.
Well Tai is a recreational drug user......unless Jephy-Jeph retconned that because some tumblrina had a bitchy fit about idolizing someone who possibly uses roofies to rape women.
This is the reason I hate long hair. It's all good in your fantasies or whatever but try actually sleeping behind that shit. It's not cute or fun. Nothing like yawning and getting a mouthful of hair in the process, or rolling over and trying to spoon and getting choked out by a face full of hair.
Well, I mean. That's why this thread exists and we're all here.
You'd be surprised. There was this Chinese restaurant in London that was seen as awful; awful food, awful service, legendary bad treatment of the customers by the owner/manager but because elite journalists and society larks liked the experience, it remained open until the owner died.
They actually did end up closing this september, but that's two years after they were made a laughing stock on TV and god knows how many years since they opened it.
The business was clearly a front with the wife as the figurehead of a playtime operation. The husband was involved in something, probably money laundering, drug trafficking, or arms dealing. The closure of the business would have been because it no longer served whatever real purpose it was meant to.
If that's the case it's a little strange that they sent in the application to appear on kitchen nightmares in the first place. Usually if you're doing something shady you don't go out of your way to put it in front of the entire world, just because you want to prove to a couple of people on the internet that you're actually the bestest restaurant in the world despite what they say.
If you ever worked retail. people have some pretty weird warped sense of logic sometimes.
One simple example: Woman was returning something. Okay, check receipt, do the task, and I make the comment "Okay, just pay out in cash to make this easier."
Yeah, she made it HARDER for herself by making a snide comment about "Of course I get cash, I paid by debt card," and i'm there like, "Bitch, WTF?" And then she proceeded to fuck up the return slip after I told her in simple terms "Fill out these three lines." She proceeds to fill out ALL THE LINES.
What should've been a simple 2 minute transaction turns into a 5 minute ordeal. To some people, those "extra" 3 minutes often means a matter of life or death.
The wife was behind the show appearance and the husband just went along with it in hopes of boosting her ago. The husband is also pretty stupid because he's a real life criminal and the exposure is likely to get him deported. The wife's a criminal, too, but just for social security fraud, not arms dealing, drug trafficking, etc.
But anon you forget, people who go to return anything in retail do it for the sadistic pleasure of using cashiers like verbal punching bags; they can say whatever they want and nobody will complain. Like how retards will tell you to set the pump for their car and don't even know how much they're fucking pumping because they can't take 5 minutes to calculate their tank capacity and dollars per gallon, but yet "Ah've ben commin tuh dis stow all muh lyfe". And repeatedly telling them the store policy just pisses them off even more.
Yes but I think he's saying it's redundant.
"She's pregnant" doesn't need "literally" added to it because people will instantly know what you mean when you say that rather than wonder if you mean something else.
Just a reminder of what this tranny mutant really is. Enjoy your cock and AIDS.
Spotted the anon that hasn't worked a day in retail.
actually, i, a retail worker, take sadistic pleasure in denying your fraudulent returns and bullshit doctored coupons
you stupid faggot
you really think you're the first person to try and get away with that shit? you really think you're original?
the customer is always right, but guess what:
you're not a customer anymore. you're a "guest."
back of the line.
I can't believe how ugly this comic is.
I can almost draw better than Hacques
