    What’s happening on the left? Did Casper get crushed by the door?

  2. Jeff Hebert says:

    Notice my restraint in not pointing out it should be “whose cousin” instead of “who’s cousin”. That’s not easy for a card-carrying member of the Grammar Police.

  3. X-stacy says:

    Maybe it’s a contraction of “who has”.

  4. Jeff Hebert says:

    Duh, you’re right X-stacy. I should’ve known Chris Sims would not let me down.

  5. Rendu says:

    X-Stacy is correct! Perhaps the Grammar Policeman needs a refresher at the Academy? πŸ™‚ Granted “has got” isn’t standard, either, but it is a dialect appropriate to the characters.
    (Sorry, but, while I am all in favor of better grammar on the Internet, I think that posting just to point out an error is not only a waste of time, it makes those who care about such things seem petty. Pointing out an error that isn’t actually there makes it even worse.)

    As the feminist here, I would like to point out how sexist and rude this man is. Honestly, what makes him think the women were discussing their cousins?

    We forgive you, Jeff.

    Which is worse, pointing out a mistake, pointing out that the mistake isn’t really a mistake, or pointing out the mistake of pointing out a mistake that isn’t really a mistake?

    Sutter_Kaine (8):

    No matter which way, you seem to have painted yourself into a corner!

  10. Jeff Hebert says:

    In my head I thought the line was “discussing whose cousin is the hottest” and not the real line of “who’s got the hottest cousin” — I was replying through the WP Admin panel where you can’t see the actual image instead of here on the post.

    That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!

    Ha ha! …Out of context.

    Come on! Everyone knows you women-folk can’t go five minutes without talking about your hot, sexy cousins!

  13. Dan says:

    @Jessica, I think Mr. Bad Moustache wasn’t actually talking to the women, he was just using the Jock-douchebag version of ladies as a derogatory term for the other bunch of charmers in the bar. Either way, he’s still a tool.

    I swear i don’t even know what’s going on anymore.

    The bearded guy at right-center: why does he remind me of a beefier Zappa? Does the Grand Wazoo tat on his gut have that connotation? And is that Red Tornado in the foreground below his arm? I swear I don’t even know what’s going on anymore either.
