Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Casey, Marie, and Barbara are all curling. They're wearing uniforms labelled "West of Bathurst." Casey has just delivered a stone. Marie and Barbara are rather incompetently clutching brooms. Marie is about to be hit by the stone; Barbara is pointing at it instead of sweeping.

Panel 2: Marie and Barbara are sitting on the couch in the Puffy Couch Room at Davies College, watching TV. They have a bowl of popcorn between them. Casey approaches.

Casey: The Olympics? What's on?

Barbara: Women's curling.

Panel 3: Casey sits between them and picks up the popcorn.

Casey: I like curling.

Marie: It's fun to watch.

Barbara: Look...a middle-aged lady is sliding slowly across the ice.

Panel 4:

Don't sweep there. Sweep there. No...there!

Barbara: Hurry...hurry...hard...hard...

Panel 5: Marie leaps to her feet.

Marie: Wow! Something clicked and went boom.

Barbara: They hit the yellow thingy with the yellow thingy! They forgot the red thingy!

Panel 6:

Marie: I think they were aiming for the yellow thingy.

Barbara: But the red thingy is still in the thingy.

Panel 7:

Casey: Does either of you know anything about curling at all?

Marie: No. Duh.

Barbara: That's why it's fun to watch.

Alt-Text: My understanding of curling is about on par with my understanding of quantum physics. Nonetheless, I am fascinated by the former, if not the latter. I can't really adequately explain why. a game. It's frickin' mesmerising.
