This is the last of the beard jokes. For now.
Hey folks, I did a guest strip for Abel Boddy. You can go over there and read it, along with other guest strips. It’s Guest Week over there chez Abel.
Poor Charlie. Can’t win for losing . . . LOL
For some reason, I’m imagining the women with Eastern European accents.
I base the dialog for the students on the speech patterns of specific students I had back when I was a teacher, so there are specific nationalities in mind. I couldn’t write these lines if I didn’t have a pretty clear sense where the student is from. In this strip, the woman on the left is Brazilian and on the right, Japanese.
In the strip two weeks ago, there was a third student, and I imagined him as Polish. He’s not in the strip this week because the joke didn’t work if there were other men in the room.
I also named the students: Mônica, Ichiko, and Tomoslav. I don’t know, I just prefer it if they have names in my head. (Now I’m wondering if Tomoslav is a particularly Polish name; I just liked the sound of it better than the original Polish name I had in mind for him: Grzegorz. I’m pretty sure I knew a Tomoslav once.)
Why do I love it when Charlie gets slapped down? He’s so cute.
