Ellipses: Twelve.

Boobwatch: April might have a AAA cup in panel 5, unless that's just her sweater falling forward.

Panel 1: Interesting: Despite the ellipses, Shannon still uses informal pronounciation like "goin'" instead of "going". And in this panel, she comes up to April's shoulders.

Panel 2: Oh please. Don't make her so pathetic, for crying out loud! Don't make her ask permission and give her those Bambi eyes like she's five years old! And is she rolling up her skirt too? Head is level with what I think would be April's nose if April wasn't tilting her head.

Panel 3: Well, Shannon's teaching assistant did say "problem with word recognition in print". Meanwhile, I can't read the sign on the door. Does it say "Interword Program"? Head is nose or chin level; hard to tell when April is always looking down at her.

Panel 4: Interesting. "I'm sorry, Shannon; I'm afraid I can't do that."

Panel 5: Ah, so Shannon has an Interest in the Opposite Sex! Look at those dreamy eyes! And hey, anything to get April's mind off her still-visible zit. (I'm glad it didn't magically disappear.)

But the question remains: how does the computer enable her to read? Does it just talk at her? Or is it taking her step-by-step through reading lessons?

(Cool timing on this, BTW. Right now, I'm reading Battlefield Earth, at Cookie Monster's insistence*, and I've just gotten to the part where the human is learning to read, with the aid of a record player and slide projector. I hope he can tell the Psychlos what he wants to eat before he starves to death!

*He said he'd read The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe before seeing the movie, and the rest of the Chronicles of Narnia, if I would read BE. Though he recommended that I NOT watch the movie.

    Stephanie, I’m sorry the parody strips offended you. The adult way to deal with it would be to close the web browser, count to ten, tell yourself…
