Watch Your Head (4/5/09)


The realistic banter in this strip gives the impression of being a fly on the wall in an undergrad’s off-campus apartment. Fortunately, the exchange is entertaining to boot, which can’t always be said of dialogue that uses social realism as a guiding principle. Just because something is true to life, doesn’t mean it’s interesting. In this case, though, lines like, “Nobody wants to hear about your social diseases” give the dialogue just enough of a kick to keep it from sounding mundane. I doubt that a modern college student would use that particular euphemism, but I thought it was clever enough to warrant a chuckle and carry the strip pleasantly to its punchline.
