(9th - October 2007) Little Blue Pills

The three exclamation points at the end of the title stands for "quality."

Nah, it's totally a suicide attempt. Dave kills himself, is damned to Hell for it, and gets the worst possible punishment. Rooming with Mike. FOREVER! :evilgrin:

Any guesses?

I say it's both.

Search your archive, I believe Roger once spiked Mike's hair gel with it...

You're correct, Technetus. So does Roger have a bottle of derpdrugs lying around (like he really needs it!), or did he simply buy some blue pills from the hot dog man to put in Mike's hair tonic? (Heh... hair tonic, that's almost old-fashioned.)

And by the way, it's not my archive. :wink:

Well, it could be that his hand-eye coordination is just shot because of the wooziness. Or that he's exaggerating the level of pain he's in for sympathy - Dave can be a little manipulative at times, though never on (or even close to) a Mike scale. Suicide is a possibility, but unlikely because Margaret would never let it happen.

Well, there's a proverb over here in Germany, regarding men and injuries. Although it loses a bit in the translation, it roughly translates to this: "When women get ill, they lie down in bed to sleep. When men get ill, they lie down in bed to die." :wink:

I've yet to meet one of us to whom the formula: "(Tiny scratch OR negligible illness) AND womenfolk present = theatralics" does not apply. Dave is quite obviously no exception. :smug: :D

Jappus, in my experience that's somewhat conditional on the male haveing some kind of interest in the woman in question . . . e.g., Mike would have downplayed any injury to April, and played it up to Marsha.

Otherwise accurate, though.

A further constraint, at least around here, is that no other males should be present before admitting that it hurts when she's picking the glass out of the wound, etc.

Of course, occasionally it needs to be specified which archive we're trawling: the comic archive, or the forum archive. I dabble in both.

There's actually a symmetrically opposite phenomenon that I see not uncommonly in my clinic. The male, almost invariably married, comes in with a 2-week history of some truely alarming symptom suggesting a heart attack or something of similar severity, stating that the only reason he's come in is because "the wife/girlfriend/fiancee" made him do it...

Men refuse to believe they're ill, but once they admit it/acknowledge it... they have practically a foot on Caronte's boat.

to summarize: If a male believes that he's not seriously ill/injured, he'll make an oscar performance of acting like he may die at any moment. If he actually thinks he's dying, he'll deny feeling ill.

:roll:

My dad nearly died of congestive heart failure rather than admit he wasn't feeling well. (Of course, trying to live on coffee & cigarettes had something to do with that . . .)

That's why I said theatralics.

Even when they deny vigorously that its nothing and that they can quite easily sit it all out ... they do it in a very theatralic way.


Take one of my friends for example. A few months ago, he acquired a 3-day flu. So far, so unremarkable (meaning, of course, that he projected his headaches to the size of the Empire State Building ... and took it manly). Too bad that he still coughed like an 80-year old coal-miner after everything else was gone. And that for freaking 6 weeks.

Of course, in all that time he:
  1. Stoutly refused to seek medical attention.
  2. Coughed even more whenever someone pointed out the former
  3. And of course, then reaffirmed that it is "nothing he can't take quite easily"...
  4. ... which immediately prompted a cough-attack of epic proportions, only to prove his point.



Theatralics all over and in all possible kinds, from desperate attention-seeking to manly manliness of stoically (and manly) enduring everything -- depending on who's present, but always theatralic. :D



And yes, I'm no exception. :P

Yup, I was fully aware of the fact that it was false (I use the Opera-inlined ASPell on all such occasions).

I was just too lazy to actually hunt down the correct word. I mean, you did that job just fine now, didn't you? :wink:

That's debatable. Due to the Goddess' unique drawing style, it's not clear at all whether his mouth is full of pills or the pills are resting on his face. :-?

Any guesses?


I assumed that that's a pill falling from the bottle beside his right cheek.


I full agree with you, pill falling from the bottle and you can't stop it.
