  1. 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.
  2. Well, pipes generally aren't made with lead anymore, so unless the pipes in your home were very old, you might be hard pressed to find one. I still think the Clue makeover is pointless, though. A kid can appreciate that it was Professor Plum in the kitchen with the revolver as much as that is was the video game designer Plum dude in the spa with the pistol (because clearly revolvers are too archaic).
  3. For those who don't understand the strip: Clue is a classic board game revolving around a murder mystery, with the goal being to figure it out first. It recently got a makeover for a 21st century audience (rolls eyes) because clearly kids can't delight in a classic whodunit unless it's up to date. Anyway, after the makeover, they got rid of the lead pipe as a potential weapon. I hope that was helpful.
