And so Fart Week comes to a close. Monday we'll hopefully see something, anything, else.

I wish I had more to say about this week's series of strips, but there just isn't a lot to talk about when flatulence is the joke every day.

Nitpick: Cole's collar is doing that weird self-flip thing in the last panel.

Late Edit: Looks like the collar has been doing that for quite awhile...but I think it's more pronounced these days.

I kinda like what Kurtz is doing here with Brent's glasses: I especially dig the smaller reflections in panel 3 (to show he's reproachfully frowning).

Mixed feelings about the "double reflection for crying" business: brilliant in theory, bad in practice (it just looks weird).

I would have LOVED it if Miranda had said "your butts sign checks your noses can't cash". Or something on that line :P

And as for the collar thing, it's been like that forever. One more reason to change it!

I guess I shouldn't be looking for technical accuracy in such a stupid punchline, but what sort of coed experience would enhance your ability to make your flatulence stink? Surely the main factor would be maintaining a bad diet.

So 'fart week' hobbles off to die alone in a ditch. Thank God that's over.

The punchline/coed thing had me scratching my head in regards to it's relevance too.

I'd even go so far as to say the last panel isn't needed at all. We know Miranda out farted Brent. We're already "impressed." No need for Cole to tell us.

Is Esoteric Scribe going to do every post from now on? I don't really care, I'm just curious as to why FSM seems to have disappeared :D

About Cole's shirt collar: a rumpled shirt that needs ironing tends to do that.

@ a nonny mouse: I laughed more at your comment than the most current strip.

I actually think I've seen the most recent strip before as a commercial, no lie. I'm going to go browse Youtube and see if I can find it.
