#003 - Brunch

Said the shut-in to the imaginary panda.

Littering and...littering and...littering and...smokin' the reefer.

Interesting to see how she's a MacGyver Smoker, what with the home-made bong and all.

Then again, if she's an absolute shut-in, I guess she wouldn't have time to go out and buy a proper piece. :P

Ah, that breakfast crack pipe, so much better than coffee.

EDIT: Yes, I'm aware Grey and Corey probably meant that to be a bong for weed, but it also makes a perfectly functional crack pipe. I find it more amusing to assume it's being used for the latter.

I don't know why, but having never seen the show, I feel that there is a Breaking Bad joke in there. Might just be because I know the show as "about those people who make and do drugs".

Erin is one of those people who has 'second breakfast' isn't she?

There is a massive difference between a crack pipe and a bong.
A bong is used for weed or hash.
And that very obviously is a bong.

I don't use any of that stuff myself, but I at least know the difference.

So, this is trying to ride on that Watamote/Vivian James "let's connect with our audiences' crushing social ineptitude!" gravy train right?

That was jarring.

Granted, we all knew Erin was a peculiar girl, but I didn' take her for a fuckinī drug addict.

"Winners don't do drugs"

"B-But we pretend to deal with our social anxiety and general lack of self-confidence with a gaming addiction, which is not as b-bad as a drug addiction."

It's starting to feel more and more like Welcome to the NHK! with every issue, but I don't see that as a bad thing. I'm confident you guys can evolve in your own way.

I picked Erin as a pill popping girl, also can we stop demonising drugs?

although I don't know if not knowing your drug paraphernalia is a good or a bad thing.

And she sees imaginary creatures? I'm SHOCKED!

Aww poor Erin. We got our ways to deal with the harsh thoughts on life.
What character is that panda supposed to be referencing? All i got is Sonic, on the flimsiest connection.

Well, that certainly got really dark really fast.

Now Erin smokes crack?

*watches intently with mild confusion*

Last comic the plot hole was where she got her groceries, NOW it's how she gets her drugs if she never goes outside or talks to anyone. Even a Y2K massive drug stash would have run out by now. Being a hikikomori can be a surprising amount of work.

The breakfast of champions. So I'm told.

Erin must have quite the grow house in her closet. That, or she bought two years worth of weed before she became a recluse. There's just something about watching somebody talk to their imaginary friend about how sad other people are before taking a hit off their morning bong.

I see this is going the darkly comic route. I like it!

Apparently a lot less people smoke here than I expected...

First, it is a bong, for weed, not crack.

Second, fresh direct and delivery Chinese are your friends

Third, to quote the late, great Mitch Headberg: "I love the mailman, 'cuz he's a drug dealer, and he don't even know it."

It's not crack, it's weed...crack pipes look really different and are a lot smaller.

How do you get weed by mail-order though? Unless the dealer comes to your door...in which case, how would you make the exchange? She'd have to move all the mail away from the slot to get to it (since she won't open the door), and then move it back? Why would she go through all that trouble and not just leave the mail where it is after she moves it?

Erin dies alone...in a plot hole.

This is turning out to be pretty awesome, I'm a big fan of Watamote and Welcome to the NHK.

Casual use does not equal addiction.
I'm dutch, I'd know. ;)

Wait, if Erin hasn't left the apartment for at least two years, did she just buy a tonne of weed a few years ago?

...Yikes.

Well, I used to, a lot, and that could be either. There's no real difference between a homemade crack pipe and a bong.

It's a pipe, for whatever you want to put in it. I choose to imagine it's crack.

TopazFusion:
Well Erin, THAT would explain why you're hallucinating.

No it wouldn't. Pot doesn't make you hallucinate. Besides, she was established as already being bat shit crazy long before she ever tried pot.

Actually no it is a bong. The element of water in it defines it as such. And while yes, she could technically put whatever in it, the most likely thing that a reclusive, mentally damaged, 20ish, hipster, urban white girl would smoke, would likely be pot.

OT: I do like the idea that her behavior has finally meant that all of her friends have cast her off for the insane freakbag that she really is, so now she's resorted to becoming a shutin. A shutin who isn't taking her schizophrenia medication, thus hallucinating 24/7, smoking pot to quell her overwhelming depression, and has now Died Alone, in her apartment. Perhaps her hamster/gerbel thing, and it's entire family line now use her for a food source, and wear her skin like clothing, wielding tiny Erin Bone spears as they claim the apartment for themselves.

Yes, yes this image cheers me up greatly. xD

Have I mentioned I don't like Erin? xD

And to any crack user, it's a crack pipe. And to include my edit from my first post:

Okay, it's an old joke, but I'm just gonna say it....

*In Nate Dogg voice*: Eat Brunch Everydaaayyy~.

Grey and Cory dig themselves deeper into the hole known as plot. I bet it'd make a fabulous container for hot-boxing.

Of course, I'm not saying you become a junkie the second you take a hit from the bong.

But be 100% honest here - does it really seem like Erin is the type of person who has a healthy relationship with drugs?

Well, we saw the episode where she apparently first tried pot a few weeks ago or something? I remember her trying it, and them asking her if she was high, and the "punchline" was her standing, surrounded by her host of schizophrenic hallucinations, and asked "How would I know?" So, yeah it's been established she's at least tried it, so no reason she couldn't develop a habit after trying it. I'm assuming this other strip has fast forwarded the timeline somewhat, for obvious reasons based on what's going on.

At least the red panda is the 'good guy' in terms of wanting Erin to occupy herself.

Erin on the other hand is pretty much wrecking her own life .. but the brunch joke did make me laugh lol.

Turning on the TV...? Are you saying she's too depressed to even play video games...? Will her only interaction with video games be her hallucinations...?

Am I the only one who would expect a drug addict who's been shut in for several years to be a lot less.. well-groomed?

Has no one considered this might not be the Erin we all know?
