#189 – Typecast

Don’t worry, Rose. I’m sure someone has thought about it.

And if you’re wondering what Logo is, Wikipedia is your friend.

Transcript

Rose: It’s true, though. I’m out of control. It’s like nothing matters anymore. If it hadn’t been Trevor, it might have been YOU.

Aya: I’d spit, but I don’t feel like cleaning up the table. WHAT now?
Rose: You’ve never thought about it?
Aya: I don’t tend to think about girls at all!

Rose: Seriously? I thought with the flannel shirts and slacks, the Tegan and Sara you’re always playing in the car, the fact that you’ve had like ONE boyfriend and HE turned out to be gay, the Buffy The Vampire Slayer marathons…
Aya: JUST BECAUSE THEY PLAY IT ON LOGO DOESN’T MEAN YOU HAVE TO BE GAY TO WATCH IT!

  2. zuche says:

    That facial expression is gold.

  3. pinky says:

    I had been wondering about this myself, actually XD

  4. Minty-Phresh says:

    “If it hadn’t been Trevor, it might have been you.”
    This I have to see.

  5. Better name than yours says:

    Random side story of what if! lol. The facial expression in number 2 is awesome, but by number three it looks like she went from shock to anger, but still kinda shock. Shanger maybe?

  6. The Negro Guy says:

    The Negro Guy Was RIGHT!!!!! She wasn’t a lesbian at all!! Eat it and weep lolli-pop guild!!

  7. cablerelf says:

    Funny story about logo.. Used to work for a cable company (surprise surprise) and heard a coworker, on several occasions, tell customers that Logo channel is there “because we had to give the damn gays their own damn channel”..
    I always wanted to say, “Yeah! Next thing you know, the wimmens and blacks will be wantin channels of their own! And trying to vote, or drive!”

  8. Lokitsu says:

    *Tries to think of someone who’s both straight AND watched Buffy…*

    Nope, she’s gay (or at least bi)

  9. bwilliy says:

    Oh please… we all watch LOGO….Right? o__o;;

  10. Sergio says:

    hahahahahaha they did this same joke in Spinnerette. it was funny then and it’s funny now lol

    • Nick Wright says:

      I actually don’t read that one, but somebody informed me on Twitter that they had mentioned T&S. I guess it’s becoming a trope!

      • Kramegame says:

        “The Tegan and Sara” – female character who can be tom-boyish in nature, and is assumed by at least one other character to be lesbian. However the Tegan and Sara is not a lesbian and this confusion can lead to a lot of… too lazy to finish it…
        but it sounds good so far. XD

  11. BunnyRemix says:

    Okay, “Buffy” is a tad suspicious, but once you discover the complete “Xena” collection, it’s all too obvious.

  12. Passerby says:

    So close to having a bonding moment… yet so far from it.

    And even further from the lesbian sex I’d bet money half the readers are crossing their fingers for.

  13. DrkFire666 says:

    I agree, I watched a Daria marathon on LOGO and I’m straight as an arrow.

  14. Strat714 says:

    Here’s hoping that “shanger” leads to experimental experiences!

    • That Jewish Dude says:

      That Jewish Dude completely agrees. YU-RI!! YU-RI!! And what’s the deal with Logo? That Jewish Dude had never even heard of that channel.

      -TJD

      • The Token Gay says:

        I thought EVERYONE knew about Logo.

        I mean, the whole world watches RuPaul’s Drag Race…don’t they? >_>;

        • The Negro Guy says:

          The Negro Guy want’s to watch, but The Negro Guy doesn’t know when it’s on.

        • Hail to the King says:

          my mom LOVES THAT SHOW. I watch with her periodically. it better than most reality shows, that and Pawn Stars

          • Alchemist's Apprentice says:

            Pawn Stars is highly addicting for some reason. Is there a way History can send crack out via light waves? Because that would explain about 90% of my television viewing.

  15. The Negro Guy says:

    The Negro Guy is still proposing a black roommate. They’re fun and eco-friendly! Except when they’re given Malt Liquor.

  16. redleg says:

    What’s Time warner? Sorry no cable, or satalite, cone to think of it, We don’t get broadcast either. The town has access to a T1 line so we DO have internet.

    • The Negro Guy says:

      The Negro Guy says you should be fine with just internet.

    • Nick Wright says:

      I’m just imagining an entire town sharing a single 1.5 Mbps T1 connection. I know that’s probably not what you mean, but I still find it amusing.

      • Kramegame says:

        geez, try a step down first, I have to share one with an entire dorm building of 150-200 people, and it’s still pretty rough trying to play PC games or downloading stuff. Can’t imagine an entire town, they would be better off without it and just use carrier pigeons like they do in Africa. XD

  17. Ginger says:

    Come on, Rose, can you at least TRY to be a little less predictable? Look how well the surprise move worked for Derek.

  18. blue zone says:

    Darn, and it’s getting so close to my birthday, too…always thought Aya had to be more open minded.

    The onlt responsible answer now is a 3way.

  19. The King says:

    The King likes this, The king was also expecting some witty comebacks.

    The King also wants to say The Negro Guy’s 3rd person talk is contagious.

  20. Lurker357 says:

    Will shanger lead to shlesbians? I think it would be nie >.<

  21. Ryan says:

    Hey just wanted to pop in
    I seriously have been reading your webcomic for like danm near 7 years not exactly sure about the first time i found it i think it was sometime in 2004
    then i poped back in 2007 and noticed you had some more strips
    and i poped back in about 2-3 months ago to see your at it again
    Keep it up i say i like the direction the story is going in and i truly hope you keep doing your work
    Thanks much for the entertainment

  22. Ryan says:

    Maybe i have made a mistake with my dates
    did you start in 2007?
    cuz i could have sworn that i read like your first 30 comics when i was still in highschool
    please correct me if i am wrong

  23. Bubbaclaw says:

    Nick, I know the odds of Rose and Aya ‘getting together’ in the comic are slim, but you HAVE done side comics……

    Would it help if I got on my knees and begged for a strip like that Nick?

  24. Grizz says:

    Grizz says that there is a women named Lucy lawless on “Spartacus, Gods of the Arena” – is this Xena? Never saw the show but heard the name

  25. Brendan says:

    Pfft. Next you’ll try to tell me straight people watch “Reno 911!”

  26. Stephen says:

    hmmm….i approve this idea.

  27. The Negro Guy says:

    The Negro Guy has an avatar!!!!!!!

  28. OverlordLaharl79 says:

    I watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer when I was younger… I actually liked it(and yes, The Overlord is straight). I also watched Sailor Moon and Fushigi Yuugi as well… just because it’s made for girls(like Sailor Moon or Buffy) doesn’t mean everybody can enjoy it.

    • Nick Wright says:

      I would never have thought to compare Buffy to Sailor Moon. Of course, I wasn’t originally aware there were any stigmas associated with Buffy, though I did assume that your typical male action viewer might not be as keen on a strong female lead character.

      • BMeph says:

        I was surprised to find out that my wife liked watching Charmed.
        Strong female leads cannot detract (or distract) from thin shirts and chilly sets….

  29. Xoer says:

    …unless it’s a post high school Willow heavy episode other than the season finally were she goes UBER evil

  30. Uranium Bullet says:

    Nothing wrong with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Tegan & Sara suck, but Buffy is where it’s at.

  31. BMeph says:

    I’m a Joss Whedon fan, and an Alyson Hannigan fan.
    Heck, I even liked the movie, which was campier than Yellowstone!
