Aren't their sunglasses/goggles "patriarchy blockers"? i.e. protection from a completely different threat?


Maybe in a future strip, a Sisterhood girl will trick Slick into putting on a pair of patriarchy blockers instead of his usual sunglasses.

I hadn't initially realized that "Xanthe" could be considered a color reference.


It very probably is, since the meaning of the name is blonde-haired, and Tat’s given you a clue by putting ‘the golden child’ as the epigram. Also, one of the three figures in classical Greek mythology with that name was one of the Amazons, i.e. female warriors, which fits in with the idea of the Sisterhood.

Anyway, seeing as my normal pseudonym elsewhere is Xanthë I thought I might as well snaffle an account before someone else gets the bright idea. (I was going to do so last Friday when I saw the strip where Xanthe and Tess get named, but my Internet connection was doing silly things.)

Of course, he and his spotty dog are probably off corralling a forest fire single-handedly - well, with a single hand and a couple of paws, that is - when he's not using both hands for some two-fisted drinking, or taking photos of rare orchids or some such thing.

also in the recent bush fires/insane ex-cyclones/storms/floods, I think Adelaide and Perth both managed to dodge anything too serious.
