Why all the need for a relationship? Gross.

what happened in the trials on the lab rats?

baggelboy said...

The radical hippie factions have stopped us testing things on rats because it is inhumane.

Now they just test this stuff on us.

so....
a) "lucky" because she gets you with full feelings intact?

or

b)"lucky" to be your cold turkey companion?

Either choice sounds like a dangerous sort of luck. Brave girl.

c)?

Prozacville said...

I think the word lucky here (you should know Switch having said it!) is meant to have a heavily inflected element of irony attached to it.

CLIFF NOTES EXPLANATION: "In this cartoon Prozacville is explaining the paradox of coming off his medication. On the one hand he needs a stable mate to nurse him through the jagged highs and lows of a non-Prozac state, but in acquiring this individual (on Prozac), he is almost surely going to lose her off prozac. Switchsky's reply to this paradox is meant to be read as a implicit negation of her positive statement. What she means when she says 'lucky girl' is really 'unlucky girl', or to use the linguistic volte-face popular in the early 90s (cf. Anthropological-Linguistic studies of Friends and Cheers episodes: "Lucky girl...NOT!"'

Not to worry, snarkiness is still entirely intact....

"lucky" in quotes is my best attempt at answering irony with irony.

though the cliff notes are a very fine addition...
