    I love how satisfied and …vengeful Norm looks in the last panel.

    Vaati, you do realize that these strips are reruns? Even if you were likely to get what you want by announcing your preferences, they can’t influence what you are going to see for the foreseeable future. I can’t imagine that endless badgering is either likely to inspire a continuation of the strip (as much as we’d all like to see it, I think there’d need to be something approaching “Luann”-quantity comments before Ed and Melissa could consider restarting the strip), or inspire anyone to accommodate your preferences should the continuation occur. Tepid, contrast-laden praise doesn’t feel good to anyone.

    Julia Stiles!

    Right? I’m going to assume that’s not where this is going. Definitely a contender for worst ex ever.

    You are not the only one. Long, negative/bitter screeds and lectures that persist day after day spoil the fun of reading a comment thread on a strip. I wouldn’t move to get someone banned, but I wish I could block Neo Stryder’s and Vaatiwithblue’s comments so I didn’t have to see them.

    Yes, nearly everyone does. If you ever saw a preview of the movie, or a clip of it, you saw Brad Pitt announcing, “The first rule of Fight Club is, ‘you do not talk about Fight Club’”. The second rule of Fight Club is, ‘you DO NOT talk about Fight Club!’" It has entered the cultural lexicon even for people who haven’t seen the movie, just like we know the twist at the end of ‘The Sixth Sense’ and what Rosebud was.

    Since I know you’re curious, here are the other rules:

    3: If someone says “stop”, goes limp or taps out, the fight is over.

    4: Only two guys to a fight.

    5: One fight at a time.

    6: No shirts, no shoes.

    7: Fights will go on as long as they have to.

    8: If this is your first night at Fight Club…you HAVE to fight.

    I loved the movie, of course. I also love the WKUK spoof of it just as much:

    Isn’t that Creepy Janitor Guy behind that mask?

    This cast commentary thingy is adorable.

    I simply cannot believe how insufferably moralizing many commentors are tonight.

    I guess if you conclude smugly that other women are trashy and asking for it that your habits of dress have made you safer and you will not be one of the 1 in 4 women who are sexually assaulted in their lifetime.

    I live in the center of a city, on a mixed residential and business street. I like to dress casually and comfortably most of the time. Men shout out compliments, try to approach me, try to hug me, as I pass by in my baggy hoodie and oversize cargo pants. It really hasn’t ever mattered what I’m wearing, I can tell you that.

    It is anti-feminist and utterly sickening that the focus is on slut-shaming here.

    I’m never one to say this, but for God’s sake: kids read this strip. If we are going to moralize, Crystal should be talking about going to the principal or about The Gift of Fear and how Tiffany can learn more effectively to stand up for herself.

    Women, how can you avoid being assaulted? First hint: it’s nothing to do with what you wear, and a lot more about not being afraid of being strong and aggressive about repelling unwanted advances.

    One more thing: Tiffany was not taking a powerful position, but it was clear she was rejecting him. A man who continues his sexual pursuit in the face of that is enjoying the power he has over her, enjoying her fear. There’s so much more to that than an automatic arousal response. You are not going to overcome it by dressing more conservatively, or even putting all women in burkas.

    Ed, I don’t! Give us a hint?
