Clear Blue Thong

If she’s the one wearing the thong, I’m not sure why he’d be the one who wants this kept a secret. Unless he’s the one…



  1. It was immediately obvious to me that the woman on the right has told the one of the left that the man behind them wears a thong.

  2. Or, perhaps, there’s a particular story involving a thong that was supposed to be secret, regardless of who was wearing it.

    I don’t get the “fellow male” thing, though. Grammatically speaking, it sounds like he’s calling one or both of the women male.

  3. The drawing of the person on the left is so generic the cartoonist forgot whether the person is supposed to be male or female.

    In the second panel, LOUD GUY talks about the person and a fellow male. In the last panel, shaggy woman calls the person “she”.

    Maybe the joke is that the drawing of this character is so bad even the other (drawn) characters don’t know his/her sex.

  4. The “thong thong thong thong” comes from a song by Sisqo called “The Thong Song”, which describes how men talk about women behind their backs. Maybe it’s ironic, since in this case the women are talking behind the guy’s back?

  5. The “fellow male” is Chelsea’s boyfriend, the one who’s getting the axe. He’s sympathizing with the victim here. The woman on the left has just admitted to conspiring with Chelsea to ruin the life of a fellow member of the male sex.

    As for her knowing that he wears thongs, perhaps she just looked down at his feet.

    (P.S. I sure hope my link works. There really needs to be some kind of guide as to what forms of html/bbcode/whatever are considered valid here.)

  6. Second on a short guide. Actually, if your system allows it, a preview button would be nice.

  7. I forgot all about that song. I thought she was saying the thong thing to the TUMS commercial tune.

    Irrelevant to who wears the thong in the relationship (hehheh), I think part of the joke is the mystery behind the story that the characters know and we don’t, but we do know it involves a thong. And I understood the “fellow male” part the first time around. He’s saying it in reference to himself. He is saying the likes of “You girls are conspiring against a male like me?”
