What have you got against lipstick salespeople, huh? What did lipstick sellers ever do to you?

Lipstick salespeople murdered my family and razed my village to the ground.

You can`t lay that on lipstick salespeople; cosmetic tradespersons of all types do that.

I seriously just don't get this comic. I feel like it must be super obvious and I'm just missing something. Anyone wanna explain? It's bugging me.

To give a serious answer, the end panel is implying that she's tricking him into letting her move in with the promise of more sex, and once she's settled in, she'll trap him in a relationship against his will.

Or spear him, either or.

Interesting conversation between Zach and weareallfromearth regarding this comic and Zach's "is this sexist?" blog post about it.

You'd almost think his forum had become hostile to him or something.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

I'm not sure I get what this means. "In LA, it is considered acceptable to ask a potential secretary to send headshots."
