Title Text: see, Marion's mom? this is what you should have aspired to be

I have no witty retort for this. It's just funny.

So. Todd isn't a secret form of dino demon, he's an arrogant looser who failed to launch and likely still lived with his mother.

Also, I'm pretty sure somehow my mother wrote her dialog.

Nothing punctures your arrogance
like the love of a good ol’ mum.
It destroys all of your ‘mystique’
and will leave you looking quite dumb.
There’s the way he can drive the car;
he gets ‘mom’ to do it for him.
He’ll learn, once or again, I think,
that she’s not subject to his whim.
She knows that he’ll make some friends here,
as though he never had before?
He’ll need to up his manners, though,
or they’ll use him to wipe the floor.

Interestingly, his mother calls him Larry. I wonder why he prefers to be called Todd.

So I know that what Sasha's saying is meant to be funny, but dang does it have some interesting implications...
--
So Todd thinks he's a tough guy,
But now that you're fluff, try
Figuring out your issues, dude,
They all just think you're really rude.

At least Todd's mom cares about her son,
Fluffy now, not the only one,
He's been knocked right down a peg,
And no Sasha, you don't have to bed.
You're a wonderful person! You can do this! Yes, you, person reading this!

Imagine already being upset about getting turned into an animal against your will, and your own mother makes cookies bearing the likeness of your now-animal self. I'd be fuming. Talk about salt in the wound, lol

Talk about a 180 context flip.

Suddenly he looks less like an overconfident, womanising twit and more like a rebellious teen who wants to be seen as cool even if it makes others not like him. Makes me wonder why he's so driven to do that.

No idea if Rick wants to dive deep into characterisation for this completely new character, but I could see it being the result of bullying. If acting nice just gets you grief from the "cool kids", and acting "cool" gets you followers (even if they're fairweather friends) that could seem like the better option to a child. Maybe you end up with no real friends, but if you had no friends before then you might see it preferable if you're no longer getting toilet swirlies or your lunch money stolen.

Well, I guess the theory of him being a disguised Steward is out the window! Also, those Red Panda cookies look delicious.

I get the feeling "toilet swirlies" is not one of the holiday specials you can get at Baskin-Robbins .... :?

Anyway, yeh... Larry, hand out those awesome cookies for your new friends!

Keene is the boss there, Todd. :roll: Eheh, meanwhile, you're "dominated" by your mom, Todd, or Larry... :P What's your real name, anyway? :? So, it's your mom who brought you there, now I got what kind of guy you are... ;) Ahah, Sasha! :lol: Well, I guess you're just gonna eat those snacks out of his hands, yeah. :D

Just like that ladies and gentlemen, Todd has been knocked down a peg or two and it was glorious to see.

There goes my theory that he's a Red Panda from the zoo. This is also cool, and much more hilarious. Here's hoping that Larry will learn himself some humility over his time with the ECP, for both his sake and the sake of the ECP in general. One bad apple could wind up spoiling the whole bunch. That is to say, if Larry tries keeping up this nasty attempt at reinventing himself, it could scuttle the chances for the Domestication-Citizenship equivalency law that Keene is pushing for to pass.
With the right community, getting into a webcomic at the beginning of a brand new arc can feel just as enjoyable and rewarding as being there from the beginning.

I'm sure that if Larry keeps his toxicity up he will be in for a world of pain and pratfalls to make him get over himself.

... but more opportunities for Mom to atone by baking more cookies. Like Cerberus said, "Always think of the cookies." Okay, maybe she didn't say that, bu she wouldah. And Rex, too. And Mrs. McGillicuddy.

I still have a foreboding that Todd's awkward and obnoxious appearance will somehow tie into the Demon-Steward conspiracy.

What if *le gasp* Todd IS one of Eudoant's henchman and the mother is Eudoant in disguise?

If that is the case then Eudoant is definitely one Oscar worthy actress since I would have never guessed that he could act THAT embarrassing since he never seemed motherly. :lol:

If we see the demon meeting up with Mrs. Kravitz, then we will know there might be something up.
