I didn’t realize it at the time I was writing it, but you can see some of the influence of Fuzzy Knights in this one. Fuzzy Knights is a digicam comic about stuffed animals, but the writing is deep and clever and very funny. I highly recommend it to anyone who reads PartiallyClips.
This particular strip doesn’t have the charm of a Fuzzy Knights strip, and it’s another insanity joke, but I still think it’s pretty solid. The beating of the pariah with socks full of bar soap is an ancient social enforcement ritual you might remember from Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket, but which I remember from the Boy Scouts.
