Talk about today's strip, or anything about the comic in general. You can also talk about any of the characters... but don't expect a response. They're FICTIONAL, you guys... sheesh. :)

Is it just me, or does this comic feel like a slight hint that Greg has been watching Community?

Perhaps. John Goodman may make a ponytailed appearance soon.

I noticed he used "hubris" incorrectly there. From the context, it sure seems like he really means "vanity" which is a little different.

I dunno...according to Wikipedia (so take it for what it's worth):
In ancient Greek, hubris referred to actions that shamed and humiliated the victim for the pleasure or gratification of the abuser.
Sounds quite a lot like Tony to me -- especially with Cartoon-Greg's assertion that Tony would say:
I'm an engineer, so fixing broken stuff around the house is beneath me

Yeah, I don't really let definitions and usage affect my word choices either.

I'm sure I should feel stupid right now, but it's both morning and Friday, so I'm officially out of craps to give. If I had any craps, I'd spend them on a troll mask and say something like "I could care less" -- but just in telling you that, I'm now crippled by my craps debt.

So...thanks a lot Deacon. You owe me some craps, man.

If you can substitute rationalization for craps, then you're home free ;)

I would substitute rationalization for craps, but I'd rather make excuses not to.
