A commentary on Tat's current financial status? We must all buy more Sinfest swag!


I was also wondering if it was a commentary on his relationship status (not that I know what it is) - but, in British English at least, "pussy-whipped" means a man is under the thumb of his woman, so I'm guessing the tagline was an intentional double-sided pun. Do you Americans and other aliens use the phrase "pussy-whipped" (not being sarcastic, being genuinely curious)?

I think most Americans shorten it to just "whipped". I personally haven't heard it with pussy attached, but the meaning is pretty clear from the word itself and it has more of a punch than plain old "whipped", so maybe other people do use it over here.

EDIT: Where DOES Tat's income stem from, anyway?


Guys, guys! I think I found something. Check this out: http://shika.naist.jp/30e130f330fc-1/students/view?set_language=en and scroll down to the section titled 2nd Year Master Program. Compare that picture to the one on Tat's Wikipedia article. I see similarities, especially in the mouth area, but it is hard to tell when you have pictures from separate angles. Plus, glasses. So maybe he works at a "Communications Laboratory"?! But no more information can be gleaned from the page Sad


AZN all look alike lol!

i think he's just referring to his being whipped by percy, but it makes a nice double entendre for the tagline.

i believe it started out as "pussy-whipped" here, shortened to "whipped" because everybody heard the implied "pussy" in it.

If I were to speculate as well, I suppose a lot of language usage gets adapted from mainstream media and entertainment too, where they need to shorten it, to avoid the spelling that alerts the media watchdogs, because as we all know, even if we all know the intended meaning of the word, it is a lot worse if you actually spell it out.

Well, I know I didn't reveal my gender, income, or browsing habits upon accessing Sinfest.

Uh...are you using your own computer?

'Cause if you are, odds are, yeah, you did.

Edit to clarify: or at least, revealed several anonymous usage statistics routinely collected by most systems, which this particular site is probably organizing based on something like first/last name and/or IP.

Most likely, yeah. I still hear "pussy-whipped" from time to time. And even "dick-whipped" on occasion.

In the last panel, Percy has either four legs and no tail or three legs and a tail. Can't tell which. Otherwise, funny.

I say Pooch eats Percy's food in the next strip. Feline freakage to follow.

So how, exactly, does this ad service tell what other sites I've been visiting? Does it use tracking cookies? And does it use those sites to predict age and income, or what now?
