The Duplex (4/22/11)

If the devil is in the details, then this strip offers up some pretty depressing details. Check out panel two, for example. Having rejected his television, our middle-aged protagonist shuffles off to his computer wearing a look of dread. “What has my life come to,” he asks himself, “that I’m actually contemplating going on the Internet?” And if that weren’t bad enough, panel three includes a telling bit of drool falling from this fellow’s lower lip. Has our hero discovered some (ahem) adult material on the World Wide Web? Is he so taken with this discovery that he’s planning to stare at the screen for days on end? Will he neglect to feed the dog that serves as his only reliable companion? Those all seem like distinct possibilities. Sobering stuff, indeed.
