Bad date

A penguin cartoon, passed on by Chris Waigl:

By Scott Cassidy, on The Stuff in the Margin.

The owl and the penguin went to see…

(Cassidy’s site tells us damn-all about him and his work. Why do so many web cartoonists do this?)

On gender: The caption identifies the owl as male. Then, in case you don’t automatically assume heteronormativity, the penguin is marked as female by long eyelashes. (In the real world, a surprising number of men have beautiful long eyelashes, without any assist — a fact that annoyed Ann Daingerfield Zwicky enormously.)
