My assumption here is that each of the girls has the same amused reaction to seeing their boyfriends in prom tuxes. Or maybe this particular tux rental place specializes in poor-quality zippers?



  1. I’m glad you posted this. I don’t get this either. The first two I kinda understood, as they had frilly things on them, but the third I didn’t get because I thought he looked fine.

  2. I think the olive green frilly vest (!) would be rather difficult to face without giggling.

  3. I think that each tux actually gets progressively goofier. Red cummerbund with black tie? Not so unusual, but sort of funny to a teen when it’s on another one. Light blue cummerbund, light blue tie? Stranger and funnier. And, yes, olive green frilly vest, as Charlene wrote? Hilarious.

  4. I think they all look fine, especially since those colors were probably personally picked out by the girls to match their dresses.

    This is just “wow, he looks silly dressed up!”

  5. The comic is showing that young girlfriends get sappy over a boyfriend in a tux. All of the males are different, yet each of the femals have the same sappy reaction. Young women who see boyfriends in tuxs get whimsical and think of their wedding day. -N_G

  6. Those are sappy reactions? I’d hate to see amused ones.

  7. Nutty_gnome, I disagree. They’re not being sappy, and girls these days do not care that much about getting married. They’re laughing at them.

    Now if this was 1947, not 2007…
