The strip up on Gocomics.com today was the first featuring, what I called in my own mind, “The Arguing Couple.” This “fight” was actually based on friends of ours jokingly squabbling about salted vs unsalted butter while making a shopping list during a late night drive back from another friend’s wedding. Rarely did something that occurred in real life make its way into the strip in such a whole way, but it did here. (I did spruce up the verbiage a bit, but I do believe “It’s dirty and it’s wrong” was part of the original conversation.) After this strip, if I came up with a gag that seemed disagreement based, I’d put it in their mouths. (And, yes, those are caricatures of them.)
The inside joke is that our friends are not an “arguing couple” at all.
