[2018/05/21 - Don’t Read Into It]
Title Text: it's uh, it's a long story, largely obscured by the sheer amount of catnip involved

Gotta be careful with that catnip, man!

I can't decide if that's adorable, because Max apparently had a dog boyfriend, or sad, because said boyfriend is, you know, dead.

my theory: (if the alt text is a lie) Max was actually born to a barn cat and Rufus helped raise him for a bit before he got adopted.
(if the alt text is true) Max was actually born to a barn cat and he went back for a visit, had some nip, yada yada yada, this.

I recall, long ago, there was a story abandoned because of the rather overt catnip = drugs message it was giving out. I think the alt-text is referring here to the stuff that went unseen then - although I have no clue how Rufus got involved.

Or Rufus is messing with Grape again.

Maybe Rufus had a secret -
and so, perhaps, did Max -
that just got quickly opened;
and blew minds off the tracks.
So Rufus has his feelings
that hang after he bought the farm.
And now he can reveal them.
Really, guys, what’s the harm?
We all know Max is mighty
and that love can save the day;
especially when the Angels
come down to Earth and play.

I don't get the "That Rufus?" line. Is it a reference to something I've forgotten? I can't seem to find a strip where someone mentioned Rufus to him.

Most PG thing I can think of: Max was born on the farm and briefly knew Rufus as a kitten - he was Max’s godfather and loved him dearly. Max overdosed on catnip and forgot his previous life until just now.

Granted the cast page did say Rufus might be into cats since 2010, but I took Occam's razor and assumed that was referring to the barn cats.

I'm starting to suspect after rereading this arc that Rufus might like Maxwell and is infact happy to see Maxwell ~ not Res.

Though it never hurts to like them both :3

Ding Ding Ding! Points to GameCobra for guessing this twist.

I don't think Rufus was ever mentioned to Max on-screen, but It's likely they exchanged greetings at some point during the dungeon crawl.

the joke is that line implies that Max knew who he thought was a different Rufus, and is now realizing that no, this is that Rufus.

Well this certainly says a lot about Max. Whether it be he is supposedly bi, and doesn't hate dogs as much as it seems like he does, or he has a REALLY BAD catnip problem.

This kinda bothers me.... All other angels got chance to spend time with the person they came to see, but Max just figured who Rufus was.

What ever the story behind they could not talk at all about it... That's sad ><

Man, Rick, you are such a hardcore tease and i love it. I bet he's his god father or adoptive father or something. That would mean he's much closer to the sandwiches than we realize? Is Grape going to be questioning and falling for Max more now because of it? <3 <3 <3

Kissing on the cheek as a greeting or farewell is a common trope for depictions of European cultures, esp. French and Italian.

Having never been there, I cannot speak for the reality of it.

Honestly at first I thought you were referencing 'Gay or European?' for a moment there. :lol:

Personally, I've never been outside the U.K., but when it counted as part of Europe (I can't even tell anymore if it still is or not), I didn't encounter kissing on the cheek as greetings or farewells from my experiences. No idea if it happens in other countries within Europe though.

I’m sure if we’re patient Mr. Griffin will explain what when on between these two in the next installment. Also Rufus, the reason Grape thinks you were there for Grape and Peanut is you're their cousin. Max has long since learned Grape's crushes are part of who she is, and that's cool with him, but now I'm curious what romances Max had in the past and what Grape will think.

I took French in high school and all the books and videos indicated that they usually do an air kiss next to each others face. it's called "La bise"

also I have 2 more theories, once more branching from one criteria.
Rufus is messing with them an a) Max is playing along cause he's a trickster or b) Max just happened to have an experience with someone else named Rufus

aside from Sabrina, probably a few others.

Despite how much I wouldn't mind another gay or bisexual character(s?) in the comic, I think the most logical explanation is that Rufus was indeed some sort of father figure in the past. How catnip coulda made Max forget, however, is a whole 'nother arc entirely :D

last time we saw him alive he was implied to be in a polyamorus relationship with a trio of cats, so that makes being straight up gay unlikely. Bisexual maybe?

I agree with everyone who said Rufus likes to mess with everyone. That's most likely what he's doing. As someone said, Peanut, Grape, and Rufus are cousins. As such, they've probably chatted more than only on-screen; and, Rufus probably knows Max third-hand, and wanted his chance to mess with him.
