You can't set a meringue in a toaster oven you fool!


But . . . but . . it's a convection toaster oven Sad

Fine, Sinfest always had a "moral message." But somehow, it always managed to be FUNNY and not BORING.

It was never "on my side." Slick was always a symbol of the stupidity of the "dudebro cis white male blah blah blah," Monique was always an adorable, ethereal pixie-person who on some level transcended that stupidity, and I was okay with that. If this thing became "in your face" and genuinely subversive, we'd have Monique punching out Slick and abandoning him for good or something and that would be AWESOME, but instead you have passive aggressive rhetoric that's only 1 step away from the language of legal documents.

I never really got the appeal of meringue. I remember being super horrified once when I thought I had banana cream but it turned out to be lemon meringue.

funny how it wasn't "in your face" and "boring" and "like a legal document" when it was bashing organized religion and bankers and Republicans and Slick's brainless hedonism and US foreign policy and so on and so on and so on...

your complaints make no sense. this comic hasn't been "passive-aggressive" in eons. in fact, the typical complaint about the whole Sisterhood thing is that it's not subtle, yet here you are whining that it's not?

go read Menage a 3 if you want your manic pixie dream girls so badly.

also i tried to make key lime pie once. it was alright, but it turned into more like key lime yogurt dumped onto a graham cracker crust, which wasn't quite what i was going for.

One of my friends made key lime pie and it never fails to amuse me because she gets SO ANGRY about how tiny key limes are and how time consuming it was to juice them all.

She's vowed to only ever make lime pie from now on, even if it sounds weird.

She could always say the limes are the key to the pie, so key lime pie would still be accurate, as long as she didn't capitalize the words.

I recently bought a pie book based on raves on LSG and plan to make one of the recipes for next week. I'm going to make tiny pies rather than one big one, but I will let you know how it goes. In this thread if it still is on the front page or in the Pleasures/Horrors/Mixed Bag, depending on how my cooking goes.

Again, my point isn't that it's "subtle" or "not subtle." My point is that it's "not funny" and "not interesting" and undoubtedly was never really intended to be.

Maybe if Sammy's friend also made tiny pies she wouldn't be so incensed by the tiny limes. Because they'd be fitting, and she'd need fewer of them per pie.

I think we could all do with a step back and a few breaths.

Here are some guidelines for everyone.
1. Don't tell someone to fuck off if they didn't say it to you first.
2. Don't call someone names because they disagree with you.

They're the cool kids. That's how they show they're the cool kids, by being douchey and obfuscatory. They're just expressing their inner nature.
