West of Bathurst 500

Link to first comic    Link to previous comic     Link to next comic     Link to last comic

Yep. 500 comics. Yep. I think I may need help.

Incidentally, this 500th comic coincides with Massey's End-of-Year Barbecue, which happens tonight (and may or may not involve a juicy scandal). I am quite pleased.

Panel 1: In the Davies College quadrangle, during the end-of-year barbecue, Frankie has just pushed Steve into the pond. He is starting to climb out. Many people, including Casey, are standing around watching their confrontation.

Frankie: You bastard! What was I to you, then...a mistake?

Steve: I vote we discuss this calmly and in private.

Panel 2: Frankie rounds on Casey, who is standing beside her.

Frankie: What the hell are you looking at?

Casey: Nothing.

Panel 3:

Casey [with complete obliviousness]: I'm just reflecting on how happy I am that for the first time in three years, I'm not the one in the pond.

Panel 4: Barbara, Marie, and Rahim watch as Frankie shoves Casey into the pond.

Barbara: He is the dumbest genius I have ever met.

Marie and Rahim: Amen.

Tiny Panel Under the Main Comic:

Marie holds a sign reading "This is West of Bathurst's 500th in-sequence comic.

Marie [thinks]: No wonder I'm so tired.

Alt-Text: Dumb smart people are everywhere. If you know someone who can write a novel in a month but is completely oblivious to social cues, you know a dumb smart person. If not, you may BE a dumb smart person.
