Best Thing Today: Dumbing of Age, Now Sponsored by Pajama Jeans

I don't know why it took me so long to read a David Willis webcomic. There's no particular reason; it's just that some comics inevitably slip through the cracks and the It's Walky family of comics were among them. Dumbing of Age places many of the characters from Roomies/It's Walky/Shortpacked! in a parallel universe, but my unfamiliarity with the original characters hasn't hampered my enjoyment of Dumbing of Age whatsoever. It's such a charming ensemble comic, and I'm kind of in love with Dina. (Ooh! And I can pre-order her shirt! And maybe buy her adorable hat if Willis ever decides to make more!)

After the excitement of the creepy-but-ultimately-empowering-and-heartwarming attempted party rape storyline (yeeeeah, not nearly as awful as it sounds), Willis has slowed things down a bit with Walky's quest for pajama jeans. This has, lo and behold, resulted in contextual ads for pajama jeans. Wait, those are a real thing? Do they actually look like jeans? Do they pill horribly?

Also, why isn't Willis shilling for product placement like one Mr. Kurtz? Seriously, David, I think you've got a potential new income stream here.

Of course, Willis himself knows a thing or two about appropriate contextual ads.

The interest rate of a doorstep loans
is certainly very high, but keep in mind that this company is actually offering you money when you need it and that too without expecting any collateral from you. In fact, the lender is taking a risk by offering the loan. You will then be able to buy the things you need urgently, but otherwise are unable to find money for. You have to find a way to repay the doorstep loans uk
, because the penalties are very strict. However, it is clear that a loan company that gives money easily and whenever you need it is certainly your best friend.
