Citrus Comic Plural Politeness by Collon28 Citrus Comic Plural Politeness by Collon28
Not too many people think about this little grammatical tidbit. I'm certain there are English Professors out ready to debunk me, but until then, I maintain that the word "Please" is derivative of a smaller word.

A little bonus: The word "Thanks" is plural as well. More obvious, but still not thought of from day to day.

Only when it's in his best interest.

If I was Cherry, I'd stick a fork in the can and hand it to him.

Chaz isn't really that kind of guy. Were the roles reversed on the other hand, that does sound like something Razz would do. It'd make a good punch line if the number of panels were doubled.

Thanks for the comment as well as the fav, as always.

If the plural of "mouse" is "mice", is the plural of "douse", "dice"?

The joke went over my head at first until I started breaking the word down and trying to derive the etymology. (Am I really that bored?!?!)

Anyway, cute comic.
Kinda reminds me of my favorite Shakespeare quote: "More wine, ho!"

I trust you're not that bored. But the intent was to get the reader thinking about it. I didn't want to reveal the answer, spoon-feeding the audience what it might be.

I recall Mr Feruzel (Did I spell that right?) saying that any joke you have to explain is a bad one. Maybe, but as long as 1 person found it funny, isn't that enough?

As always, thanks for the comment.
