Love the comic! I hope Ally and and friends have some real fun in London!
It’s okay guys I’ve prepared the anti-transphobe rocket fist- What do you mean it’s not needed anymore? Man.
…i’m sorry, that ‘slang’ just takes me 100% out of the scene. It’s hard to take with the right gravity when someone says…argy-bargy.
One of Squeeze’s best albums.
Did someone get a British colloquialism dictionary for an early Christmas present? It was both fun to read and distracting at the same time. I’m loving the trip to England story line.
I lived in the UK for six months. Certainly not fluent in Brit-speak but knowledgeable. Putting some of my favorite phrases out there. Enjoying the comments immensely 🙂

I never feel it’s unfortunate to have fun and do work that you love. You can’t please everyone, why try? Just have to tell the story best you can. Appreciate your comment and link.
Methinks some people don’t get the concepts of artistic licence and satire. I love it because everyone tries to be too damned accurate all the time. It’s nice to see a change in pace.
Looks like it was a little to deadpan for me to realise it’s a joke.
I legit thought it was cutsey speak.
A million dollars to the first person that develops tech that shuffles drunks off to an alternate reality till they sober up :/ Or have something like the blocking tech in Black Mirror: White Christmas, only instead of a person blocking, it reeds your blood alcohol level and auto blocks you from everyone when you hit a certain point 😀
Just spitballing ideas here… 😛
Anyway, I love how you handled this. Your plots always seem to surprise me.
I kind of like the idea of a rowdy drunk teleportation system. Reach the right sort blood alcohol content and if you start releasing the sort of “rowdy” chemicals (I dunno, I’m not a biologist) you’re instantly transported home and you can’t leave again until you’re sober and sorry.
Be a great way to stop drink drivers too. And make for an interesting transport system for getting home at the end of the night!
“Lets get sloshed and pick a fight with the bartender, I need to get home”
I can validate that all those British slangs are real.
… they aren’t all usually said all at once, or very regularly – but I kinda wish they were. Go with it!
– Sincerely, All of England.
PS. Maaaaajor props if you can work “Wazzocks” into this somewhere 😉
Thank you! 🙂
For further Britishisms – please enjoy this list of amazing place & road names, compiled by LRR.
I just read through the entire comic and hot damn it’s good. Keep up the good work I guess, haha.
Like and the moron’s friends not upsetting him but taking him out of the situation as they realise he’s a knobhead and hopefully because they don’t agree with him at all.
