"New Pal" - the latest comic in a series that Lauren Monger has been cartooning for Vice. More Lauren Monger comics and drawings (most of which involve the same cast of beautifully-watercolored animal friends) at her tumblr and her twitter.

Oh, I've been following these on tumblr for a while. The one where the guy finds out his girlfriend has been cheating on him, and he vomits up all his guts, and his heart: I've been there.

Clementine is a bit like if Megg Mogg and Owl wasn't a howling pit of despair.

LOL @ plebs not knowing scrundle

Most of the new kids have only tried mung cut with non-dairy creamer and think they're trying the real stuff. The other day I saw an honest to god "ironic" scrundle kit at Urban Outfitters - ceramic spork, tiny vial of otter's tears, even the tiny paintbrush you daub it with. I have no idea how they can sell that legally.

Vice now has comics about queer furries.

Let me say this again. Vice now has comics about queer furries.

I always figured furry would drift from a weird subgroup into a mainstream thing. I didn't think it would be like this.

NO NO NO why does the possum have human feets?!!

That's an opossum, which would naturally have hands for feet and feet for hands. If that's what you'd prefer, I really don't know what to tell you. Weirdo.

(Except maybe that you'd somehow totally hate Bojack Horseman.)

I love how the gender of the characters is just suggested through their names and body shapes. Clem dresses exactly like everyone else and has a realistic animal face; she occassionally wears a black tank top, and she's shorter and has slightly less broad shoulders than, say, Kyle. I love that there was no need to give her eyelashes or a pink bow or whatever.

A scrundle is a long piece of candy that is both sweet and sour in flavor.

The candy is orange and shaped like a star.[citation needed]

No evidence this really exists
