The Exquisite Beast

This was a really weird conversation I overheard on the way home. I've got no idea what social rule was broken, but it was pretty serious guys! Those guys were pretty serious. 

Have you been checking out the Exquisite Beast lately? They're up to beast 37, and the progress is pretty neat. It takes a long, windy path to get to where it currently is!

That's all for us! It's been a fairly busy week for us, and there's still one day to go ... let's do this! See you next week!

He has diabeetus, and can no longer have cookie dough.

I'm eagerly waiting for the moment the beast finally evolves to a humanoid being.

The number of comments is oddly low for a Thursday comic.
