As I was unable to lampoon Valentine's Day in the colour comic posted on the seventh (I needed that one to get Casey out from under the table), I here provide a belated themed comic. Happy...February 21...

Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, a young white man with brown hair and a young white woman with yellow hair embrace obnoxiously. Barbara points a hose at them; Marie reaches casually towards the tap. They are in a backyard. Behind them are silhouettes of some houses; one has the words "West of Bathurst by Kari Maaren" written on it in cursive.

Panel 2: Barbara and Marie are on an elevator with the terrible couple from the title panel.

Terrible Man: ...And then I just gave it to her for free!

Terrible Woman: Oh, Todd!

Panel 3: Marie leans against the elevator mirror, looking cynical. Barbara glances at the terrible woman's head. The terrible man smirks.

Terrible Man: You like?

Terrible Woman: You're so sweet. You're just so sweet.

Panel 4: Barbara stares intently at the top of the terrible woman's head.

Terrible Man: Not as sweet as you.

Terrible Woman: You're sweeter.

Terrible Man: No, you're sweeter.

Terrible Woman: No, you!

Terrible Man: N--

Panel 5:

Terrible Man [to Barbara]: Dude, what are you looking at?

Panel 6:

Barbara: Lice.

Panel 7: The terrible couple exit the elevator, eyes very wide. Barbara and Marie stay put.

Marie: Let's ride down with another couple and do that again.

Barbara: I can think of no better way to spend my time.

Alt-Text: I double-dog-dare you to try this the next time you're trapped in an enclosed space with a couple of nuzzlers.
