Jon's love life is... a sausage? A sauciere?? Sanssouci???
Something like that...

(And my theory is that Liam was hiding something under his hat...)

(Well yes, he was hiding bad hat hair, and/or partial baldness I bet. It could also have been ginger hair colour that Christian bigots in England to this day hassle people over claiming it's a sign of being a soulless cambion, or [and yes I have heard this, recently too], "worse, he might be Irish.")

(Why are we whispering in parentheses?) ;)

Thankfully I haven't heard much ginger discourse lately that wasn't clearly a (bad) joke or a (bad) Southpark reference, but yeah, people are super weird about ginger hair. I personally think ginger hair looks great, and as a super pale person I understand the sunburn struggle.

(Internet grammar?)

Lol, yeah seatbelts are one of the many things about cars that make posing and composition a bloody nightmare

I was once told (by hat wearing scum) that the number one way to lose one's hat is to take it off. Perhaps Liam the fuckboy was just too dim to remember and put his hat back on whenever he took it off, and he avoided losing it by avoiding the, "remove hat," step of normal hygiene and social function? Anna and Gemma might be making fun of a cripple that's too dim to risk taking his hat off, and then who does that make into the worse, metaphorical, hat wearing scum in this situation?

Look out those windows, people. This is a rare opportunity to see a sunset which isn't being fucked by a gangbang of steel and concrete willy-substitutes thrusting bollocks deep into the horizons.

As an occasional hat-wearing scumbag, I always just store it in my backpack when I take it off. Probably not an option for those people who leave the house without a bag I've heard so much about.

And yeah, it's like seeing the stars out in the countryside, get an eyeful when you can.

Yeah, many silly blokes talk a lot of crap about purses and bags, and then they mangle, misplace or lose things that sensible people handle with a bag. It's sometimes enough to make me question their sapience: If they fail to use the appropriate, common, normal, easily available tools to solve their problems known as bags, cases, backpacks or the like, are they or are they not tool-using intelligences?

a sAUSSURE ESSAY LMAOOOO

I remember having to read one of that fricker's essays in English Theory... Had to go through it and rewrite everything into plain English because I had chosen that essay to present to the rest of the class, not knowing that he would use words like 'contradistinction' instead of 'in contrast' like a normal person.

All reminiscing about Saussure aside, I love the optimism displayed by Seth in the bottom panels :)

I sat through an entire two-hour lecture and took part in a one-hour seminar about structuralism in general and Saussure in particular, and I still for the life of me could not explain to anyone what the heck structuralism is.

Seth: Aww, my best friend and my girlfriend are finally getting along!

Welp, time to go murder a family member!

Wikipedia can help maybe, it makes things easy for people who are willing to look up the supporting concepts and related work to make sense of things.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Structuralism

I'm not fully certain I've understood it myself, because it seems like a trivial concept and/or analytic perspective, of a kind which I've found only occasionally useful in debugging for tracking down some of the more obvious unintended interactions. Its application to linguistics seems like it ought to be much more limited, and at that point I have to wonder why anyone would bother.

Oh yeah, I've tried looking it up on Wikipedia, but it still doesn't quite scan for me. The best I can gather is that words are arbitrary on their own and require the context of the words around them to make sense, but that can't be right because uh, Monsieur Saussure, in other news water is wet.

I also get a tiny hint of what I understand to be a more convoluted version of reader response theory.

The Saussure essays I read were translated, so I partly blame an unclear translation, or maybe he described something that was difficult to articulate in English? (Which feels pretty appropriate, if I understand his ideas correctly. which again I don't think I do lol)
