Smoodge: Plus, I have an innate affinity for soul food and badunkadunk.
I should start off by saying that I don’t think this strip is racist, and I apologize for nothing but the wordiness of the last panel. That said, as the whitest of white people, I had to do some investigative journalism to pick the perfect store for the punchline. I asked my “informed sources” (read: black friends) for the perfect locale, but believe it or not, there’s a lot of wrong ways to ask a question like that. This website provided an easy out, but it felt like cheating. I heard tanning salon, Pier 1 Imports, Bed Bath and Beyond, and others. In the end, we had to go with Anthropologie. Anyplace that sells junk like this is a joke in and of itself.
I dislike the word “forfeited,” and that we were forced to use it. If only Forfeit could see the infinite wisdom of Sit, and acquire a more sophisticated past-tense.
Frankly, I’m outraged over the lexiconigraphical status of “forfat.” I’m also outraged over the lexiconigraphical status of “lexiconigraphical.”
