not sure what the issue is? It's taking the piss out of sexist attitudes

What's the sad face for confused

Cyanide and happiness have some pretty funny strips. There's 4 authors, some are funnier than others.
Not sure what your point is though.

Has this put you off all comics? Because that's a bit silly
That comic is stupid though

jaxtsoldlady Thu 17-Mar-16 16:09:38

Not seeing the issue here either. It's having a laugh at sexist attitudes!

This is satirising sexism. What's the problem?

Highsteaks Thu 17-Mar-16 16:12:46

What does obnovious mean?!

MothertotheLordsofmisrule Thu 17-Mar-16 16:12:48

Yep don't see the problem, it's highlighting that sexism comes from both sides.

Obnovious is actually a pretty cool word and I'm going to start using it.

Indeed it is! Understanding that a comic is poking fun at sexism and not misunderstanding it!

UmbongoUnchained Thu 17-Mar-16 16:24:37

Obnovious is fantastic.

YABU chocolate

I find that amusing.

But not as amusing as obnovious.

No issue with it.

You've invented a new word though. Obnovious Hmmmmm. It is growing on me.

MerryMarigold Thu 17-Mar-16 16:26:47

acasualobserver, what context are you going to use obnovious in? Genuinely interested. [Not really so interested in the comic].

ConfuciousSayWhat Thu 17-Mar-16 16:29:05

I think it's a pretty typical cyanide and happiness cartoon. Very short and to the point and clearly poking fun at sexism

Are you looking to be offended op because I can help you there if you are

RupertPupkin Thu 17-Mar-16 16:29:13

Obnovious really rolls off the tongue. Love it.

It's not very witty imo, it's pretty shit actually but I don't know whether yabu or not as I have no idea what the word obnovious is.

arethereanyleftatall Thu 17-Mar-16 16:30:32

Does obnovious mean funny? If so, I agree, I thought it was obnovious too.

pippistrelle Thu 17-Mar-16 16:31:22

Clearly, it means new ways in which to be obnoxious. I will apply it to any statement from Michael Gove.
