Geek Girl, Geek Boy (Comic #156)

The Doubleclicks delayed today's comic. I've blogged about their fantabulous new song over on my author site. I had a different comic ready to go, but I couldn't quite get to it before I had to run out the door... and then when I got home the Things had something to add (in part thanks to excellent internet/facebook/twitter to chat).

Muse thanks must also go to Rachel Edidin who lead the charge against a certain internet meme. Part of that battle included etymology "conversations."

If geeks and chicken consumption is a surprise you may find this interesting.

You can read about the pronouns of many of the characters in Things Without.

Thing 2 continues to smile.

Thing 1: I guess I'm a geek.
Thing 2's mouth looks a little worried and wobbly.

A chicken pokes its head in from the side of the page.
