Only thing I can think of is no matter what, a toy collector can not resist the urge to get out shopping? It's a stretch, but that's all I got.



Thats how I took it. He was adamant about staying bed, but in the final panel he's at the store looking at the new stuff. I didn't LAUGH at it, but thats how I took it.



What are the two giant pimples on his face? I don't get that.

Seriously? What's not to get about it?


It's irony presented in the form of hypocrisy. Ethan says he's going to enjoy the things he already has, then quickly finds himself ogling a new toy. It's not a comment on toys or collectors; it's simply the most basic humor after slapstick. You could just as easily have Ethan proclaim, "Muffins are disgusting! I swear on my grandmother's grave that I will never eat a muffin again!" and then promptly show him cramming a muffin in his mouth.


The point of the strip is to emphasize Ethan's hypocrisy in a humorous way. Generally, when people are that adamant about not doing something and do it seconds later, it's funny. I know I chuckled.


But hey. Sometimes jokes don't click with people. Just thought I'd clear up what it's about.
