    They added a gay black character last year. Now Jughead is asexual and refers to himself as a Eunich…… which means that he’s been playing around with a set of pruning shears at home I guess.

      “….Scores of readers who identify as asexual came out to cheer the Jughead news”

      Yes, and what winners they were too.

      “Gee, I guess I might as well identify as ‘asexual’ because I can’t get a girlfriend anyway. I mean I’ve been sitting on my fat ass eating Doritos and playing ‘Halo’ in the basement for three straight years now and not a single high school cheerleader has come calling! How come?”

      Yes, “asexual” is easier than actually transforming yourself into a person an attractive member of the opposite might be drawn to.

        ‘asexual’ is just another word for unfamiliar with a toothbrush or soap!

          asexual = no personal hygene

    I read Archie comics all my life (hopeless romantic that I am) right up until a few years ago when they became unreadable. Thankfully I hoarded a horde of them for nostalgia and grandkids.

      Back when they were good……………………….

        Heh! I either missed that one or I was so naïve it went right over my head

        They were so much fun.

      • Betty just couldn’t be more excited, could she?

    Archie comics still exist?

  • NoPasaran

    Yeah, but the real question used to be:

    Betty or Veronica?

    • Clausewitz

      See the above. Both.

    I saw an Archie comic in the drug store 2 or 3 months ago. Archie was a survivor of a zombie apocalypse. It was called “Afterlife with Archie”.

    I just thought “oh, go fuck yourselves!”

    Do the urban shitstains that infest the arts/media community have to ALWAYS crap all over everything?

    • Minicapt

      Yes; like the scorpion, it is the defining aspect of their natures.

    I hear next month Big Ethel comes out as transgender. That would explain a lot!
