nono- it's about the power of declaring something cute. monique characterizes the hell-hound as cute, and it becomes as meek as a dove.

.....are doves actually meek? they're related to pigeons, and pigeons aren't exactly meek...i would change that to 'bunnies', but bunnies can be pretty fierce...


Pigeons are a type of dove, even.
And yes, bunnies can be fierce. I got a bunny when I was seven. Anything with claws scares me now.

Anyone who's seen or read Watership Down knows how fierce rabbits can be.

Yes, good old Watership Down. Good old fictional, made-up, actually-not-at-all-true-just-so-you-know-rabbits-aren't-actually-capable-of-rational-thought Watership Down.

I'm pretty sure loving evil in every way (sexually and maternally) is probably epitome of evil.

Other way around. Doves are pigeons that just happen to have all-white feathers. Albino pigeons and white-feathered breeds both count.

The distinction is the same as between mountain lions/pumas and panthers. Panthers are pumas (mountain lions) that just happen to be all-black.

So cute. ('Nique looks weird in panel 3, though.)[/quote]

It's her eye. It fills the whole head of her. Is she OK?

This one is so me again. What do you do when you see a huge, mad killerdog from Hell? You go caress it! I would. x) Not if it was a normal dribbling dog but only if its an evil killerdog.

Um, no, being white isn't a defining feature. They're just considered interchangeable terms. What we're talking about here isn't "rectangle" and "square", it's "rectangle" and "quadrilateral with four right angles".

interchangeable, yes. one doesn't belong within the other. the family is columbidae and the order columbiformes. usually the differenciation is due to size, pigeons being larger. there are five or more subfamilies. and there are plenty (many dozens) of non-white doves.

That's because, in my country at least, "rectangle" and "square" are actually completely different things. A rectangle can be a square, but a square can't be a rectangle - since a square is defined as a quadrilateral with four right angles and sides all the same length, whereas a rectangle can have two parallel sides of a different length to the other two parallel sides - in fact, you're referring to rectangle and oblong, and your reference to square was incorrect.

actually, panthers are black leopards. mountain lions (==cougars==pumas) don't come in black.

there is the florida panther, which is a type of puma, but it's normal puma-colored. don't know why they ended up being called panthers, other than just general confusion on what you call that great big cat over there.

uhm, by your definition, a square can be a rectangle.
A square isn't necessarily a rectangle, by the reason you gave,

but it is false to say 'a square cannot be a rectangle'

I don't know what country you are in, but rectangle is typically defined as a quadrilateral with 4 right angles. Thus, ALL squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.

A rectangle can be a square, and a square must be a rectangle.

Fine, I garbled my words a little, but my point still stands as regards the original poster.

What the hell? I don't know if it varies in other countries, but my statement was entirely accurate in America, where I happen to be located.

That's as dumb as saying "No, condoms aren't birth control devices. The correct term is rubber."

I'm afraid to say that this particular one sucks. Seriously, it's vapid, odd looking and not even funny (a cardinal sin in the world of the cartoon strip). I sure as hell hope that this isn't part of a trend, as (by Sinfest standards at least) this seems far too much like a "conventional" comic strip to me. Seriously, if this is a setup scene it had better get more interesting damn quick.

AND NO ONE GIVES A DAMN ABOUT THE PIGEONS OR RECTANGLES!!!!! Damn pedantics...
