Saturday, June 16, 2007
Panel 1: In the title panel of this colour comic, Barbara and Morgan glare at each other as Morgan holds up the front section of the newspaper The Globe and Mail. The leading article is headlined, "West of Bathurst," and bylined, "by Kari Maaren."

Panel 2: In the Davies College common room, Marie sits on a chair, Morgan beside her on a couch, and Barbara beside Morgan on the same couch. Barbara is reading a book, and Marie and Morgan are reading newspapers. Yes, this still frequently happened in 2007.

Marie [to Morgan]: You done with the front section of the Globe?

Morgan: Nope.

Panel 3:

Marie: ...Oh. Well...could I look at it until you're ready for it?

Morgan: Nope.

Panel 4: Barbara grabs the paper and thrusts it out towards Marie, right across Morgan's line of sight.

Barbara: Here, take it.

Morgan: Filthy paws off my paper, Barbara.

Marie: Uh...

Panel 5:

Barbara: See, this is why I hate you.

Morgan: I...bought...that paper. There's a communal copy over there.

Marie: Okay. Sorry. My mistake. I'll get--

Panel 6:

Barbara: And you couldn't just say that, could you?

Morgan: It was observable.

Barbara: You're amazing.

Morgan: Eat me.

Barbara: Your momma!

Panel 7: Marie has stood up and gone to find the communal newspaper; she is holding the front section of The Globe and Mail. Another Junior Fellow, a young white man, approaches her as, off panel, Barbara and Morgan go, "Your momma!" "No, yours!"

Marie: How silly of me to want to read about the war in Afghanistan when I can just watch this instead...

Man: You done with the front section of the Globe?

Alt-Text: I did actually see something like this happen once. Common Room frequenters get *really* territorial about their papers.
