Saturday, February 10, 2007
Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Marie watches Morgan, Barbara's former friend, who is scowling while marching off with a protest sign slung over her shoulder. The sign reads: "West of Bathurst against Valentine's Day!" In spiky little red bubbles on the sign are the words "REPUGNANT," "UNFAIR," and "BY KARI MAAREN." There is also a small "no hearts" icon on the sign.

Panel 2: In the Davies quadrangle, just outside the foyer, Morgan is standing and smoking. Marie, wearing a pink shirt, passes her.

Morgan: Ah-ha!

Panel 3: Morgan gets right into Marie's face.

Morgan: You're wearing pink on Valentine's Day! You're one of them, aren't you? One or those sweet, precious little bouncy girls who live for this holiday? Your name is probably Candi!

Panel 4:

I predict that you are currently on your way to meet your boyfriend, who is going to take you out for lobster and gift you with sparkly things. Afterwards, you will snuggle by a fire.

Panel 5:

Morgan: Someday, I am going to wipe all you cutesy-wootsy, pointlessly dimpled, uselessly boring people from the face of the Earth. And I shall sprinkle defaced construction-paper hearts on your mass grave, and I shall laugh!

Panel 6: Morgan glares at Marie, who stares back at her.

Marie: My name is Marie, I don't have a boyfriend, and this shirt was white until I washed it with a pair of red socks.

Morgan [walks away]: Okay, yeah, that was always a possibility too.

Alt-Text: Okay, I know Morgan comes across as kind of unreasonable here, but I really, really agree with her on this issue.
