Fiona! Pull the tie harder. No jury will convict you! Remember C. Montgomery Burns vs Maggie Simpson!
Fiona has magical powers! Show her to Josh and Jerry! I dare you!
Would love to see that baby spit up on his nice jacket and shirt!
I like the way he’s holding Fiona – as if to say, “I’m not finished with her yet, so don’t even think of taking her back!”
When she starts eating “solid” food, load ‘er up with chili and get Stuart to babysit….
Are you kidding? He’d read her the Grumbel’s policy manual for a bedtime story! Though, to be fair, it would probably put her right to sleep…
Okay, I have to admit, this made me giggle for the sheer unexpectedness of humanity in Stuart. Whoulda thunk?
Every dislikable character has at least one redeeming quality…or, at least a HUMAN quality. If not, they wouldn’t be a very well developed character.
Notice how Stuart is holding her like a pro?
He’s got some history somewhere….
I would think so. If he doesn’t have kids of his own, he probably has nieces or nephews or younger cousins.
Maybe his sister has children.
You know, all of this might actually make sense, if Stuart has experienced caring for a young niece or nephew.
Maybe he raised his sister? This would explain a lot.
Fiona is supposed to be two months old. She looks like she’s at least five times that age…
I’m also in agreement with the theory about his sister having kids. But… how often does he even see his sister? She’s only been mentioned once in the strip, when there was that whole plotline about “how Stuart could actually love somebody.” I think that if his sister did have kids… he’d have only seen them a few times when they were newborns, when he was there to congratulate her on the birth…
Just thinking out loud.
You don’t know a lot about kids, do you?
You don’t know a lot about being nice, do you?
D has a point, kid can grow fast and Stuart is a small guy making her look bigger than she really is when being held by the goblin
Haven’t any of you seen the episode of The Office where Michael Scott was holding the babies? Even the weirdest managers can love being around random children (in a non-creepy way).
Fiona looks like she could be Gil’s sister…
I’ve many bosses in my day. One in particular drank the same corporate Kool-Aid as Stuart. And as eye-rollingly difficult as it was to work for him at times, I had worked for actual evil in the past, and knew that that wasn’t it. So I always understood that underneath the yes-man mentality was a human. Sure, as his employee, I rarely got to see it, but I knew it existed. Stuart isn’t evil (the closest this strip has seen to that is Jerry). He might have even been like Marla when he first got started. Fighting corporate is a exhausting in its futility. It’s enough to wear anyone down. It’s not unheard of for an otherwise decent person weary from fighting years of the good fight, to just give in. It’s the easy way out, sure, but not everyone has Marla’s strength.
So yeah, it doesn’t surprise me to see Zucchini head’s human side. And maybe I could be wrong; maybe he IS just a corporate drone. But like Silverneurotic said, if Stuart didn’t have at least some redeeming qualities, he would be a one-dimensional, undeveloped character. And Norm is a better story-teller than that.
Fionas already actually babbling? combining vowels and consonants? not at her age! lol.
This is the ethical problem with Pod People.
With some people, the Pod version is an improvement.
