    Is Flora okay? I hope so.

  2. eightheadedboy says:

    I’m going to go ahead and predict that Flora is dead, and Scipio’s about to lose it.

  3. John K says:

    she is so gonna kick his butt!

    • FrankNW says:

      Lemme get this straight: When she’s as small as she is, and he’s as big as she is, and a trained bodyguard, “she’s gonna kick his butt”? Have you been reading this strip? (Wow, now that’s genius.)

  4. Michelle says:

    Flora closed her eyes when Scip picked her up guys.

  5. Leah says:

    You know that thing cats sometimes do, where they’re sleeping so hard they’re completely limp no matter what you do to them and are difficult to wake up? Chickens do that sometimes too, if they’re kept as pets for a long time.

    I am going to be very shocked if Scip actually loses his temper. I think it would be scary, but he strikes me more as a “I’m so disappointed in you” type person.

  6. frankwolftown says:

    I wish that girl was real so I could slap her.

  7. Kat says:

    “I’m not angry. I’m disappointed.”
    Plus he might ask her where the money from the stolen laptop is.

  8. Logan says:

    Ms. Spike, it straight up kills me the way you conjure up these people in an insane future, but they’re people we all have in our lives here in the present. It’s almost depressing to think that these personality archetypes are immune to any sort of progress, but we all probably guessed that already. I think everyone knows Scipio. I know I’ve got one in my life. What is WITH these Scipios? Do they always do this shit? Also, my Scipio turned out to be gay as the day is long, but this Scipio strikes me as a touch too enlightened to stay closeted for long.

  9. maritza says:

    Get a job, you bum!

  10. Joelle says:

    When I first cast my eyes upon panel six, I interpreted it as a sexy bum and leg. I was like, “whoa, scipio!”

  11. maritza says:

    Anyway, she’s not gonna need any money, because her date just jumped out of the window when he saw her rap sheet.

  12. darrylayo says:

    I always tense up and wince at the exact moment when someone’s about to stick their foot (and whole leg and torso) into their mouths.

    Don’t do it, Scip!

  13. Jesse says:

    beautiful. just beautiful. the small scip n panel two. the truthfullness of “…that you can have,”. very very good.

    Thanks Spike.

    • FrankNW says:

      That’s real. I’ve been asked for money, but it’s not always money that’s for the other person to have. If you say the “no” firmly enough, it can be pretty clear that you’re simply not going to give them anything, regardless what you have.
