Even golden raisins? What about currants and sultanas?

Because masculinity is toxic.

RAISINS ARE NOT EXPENSIVE AND POOR PEOPLE CAN STILL AFFORD RAISINS WHAT THE FUCK JEPH

I know Jeph doesn't know shit about gay people, black people, foreign people, autistic people, non-binary people or trans people, but not knowing that poor people don't just suck on the mold growing out of their cardboard boxes for sustenance really, really bothers me. So fucking patronizing.
>>
I'm surprised Jeph hasn't made a "raisin d'être" joke yet.
>>
>>101638706
to be fair ( not that we have to be fair jephs is a shit) this is very bizarre time line. perhaps grapes had been nearly wiped out making raisins a very rare and expensive delicacy ...at least during the time brun was growing up

>Jeph Jacques wrote this sub arc because he was scarred for life when at the tender age of four, his nanna bent him over her wrinkled knee as she inserted raisin after raisin into his tiny asshole.
>To date, Jeph cannot see an elderly woman handling a box of raisins without becoming weak in the knees and getting an involuntary erection.
>I applaud Jeph Jacques on trying his best to work through the trauma through his art.

>>101638706

Rasins are a literal dollar store food. You can buy like a dozen boxes for two bucks at any wal-mart. You can buy them yogurt or chocolate covered for three. The idea that someone will never ever have something like Rasins is beyond fucking patronizing.
>>
>>101638046
>light skinned raisins
that's even more racist!
>>
>>101638101
Because it serves the humor.
Watch nichibros for better example.
>>
Sultanas (which are legit better than raisins) are $4 a fucking kilogram, Jeph. In the US you can probably get them for $1.50/lb, and they're in every bloody foodbank. They're so cheap that the British Navy used to feed them to sailors. They're so cheap that the UN feeds them to refugees. Basically the only things cheaper are rice, flour, sugar, and beans.

Did Brun grow up in the DRC or North Korea or some shit?

That girls rack is pretty big.
I just want to comment on that.

Imagine his face when he sees Grandma stocking up on prunes.
>>
>>101640068
To make things worse, American raisins are sultanas. California produces all the raisins, and almost all California raisins are that cultivar.
>>
>>101640148
I'm not saying he should stab himself again, but I hope he feels a little bit silly about his anti-raisin crusade.

>>101638101
It's fascinating, because he GETS mannerisms, right? Conversational posing, body posture, all that he well and truly has a basic shape grasp of.

I don't know if he ever considered another body dynamic ever again, other than skin and hair color.
>>
>>101639697
Like, you can TELL he was /super/ going for "Well they got used to doing things a certain way, and at some point half able to keep up people decided X, y, and zed were more efficient options overall, so, raisins just never happened."

That I'd believe. Except I'm being entirely too charitable, aren't I. God. If it had ANY trajectory I'd give more of a fuck. But it's just a sick fascination with a strangely immobile angle at this point.

Raisins are white patriarchy food.
>>
>>101641866
Yet A Raisin in the Sun was a play/movie about black people.
>>
I'm missing some context. What did Jeph say about raisins? I don't want to go to the site and give him hits.
>>
>>101641917
Brun said her family was too poor to afford raisins, which is bullshit coming from a guy who has no idea what it's like to be poor.
>>
>>101641917
The sperg trio is having a fairly adorkable back and forth over life and family and stuff, and Jeph wants to do a "Wait he gets his priveledge, but inevitably makes a stupid comment, and she has a flash of fire with 'you don't get what it means to be poor' " as a beat.

All well and good, and the execution on the overall page isn't horrific, for reference - But he decided to use the presence or absence of /raisings/ as the cut out here, and given they're like the cheapest thing in the world.....


Oh, HELLS. I know what it is - I've lived in the town Jeph presents himself as "Of". The whole Brattleboro / Keene / Etc extended network of psuedo-portland towns in that whole chunk of the area. All the organic and farmers markets are done open air, stalls, so you can see it and visually grasp that it's a raisin. All his food came in boxes as a kid, because he's just that kind of priv, so he associates the open air mountain of fruit perspective he's alluding to with the bread here, he's cross-splatting that in his poor idiocy with the expensive organic crap with "We didn't have this when poor as a kid".

>American raisins are sultanas
wait, what raisins are everyone else eating?
>>
>>101642060
In New Zealand, we only call the ones made from black corinth grapes raisins. Raisins made from Sultanas are an entirely separate thing.
>>
>>101642060
I can't speak for everyone else in Europistan, but when I hear "raisins" I think of these little dark fellers...
Which are California sultanas.
>>
>>101642355
Oops forgot image.
>>
>>101642060
Sultanas are raisins made from varieties of white grapes, in the case of America they're made from Thompson Seedless.

>>101642189
What do you call raisins made from grapes that aren't Black Corinth and aren't sultanas?
>>
>>101637157
Now that we've gotten the robofuckening, how many thousands of pages until this three way he's been setting up happens?
>>
>>101643014
Longer than usual since it looks like he's setting up something robot cop at the same time.
>>
>>101643055
I'm convinced robot cop is just a throwaway gag for now
>>
>>101643068
She's had too much focus at this point, including appearances separate from the rest of the cast, to be a throwaway gag.
>>
>>101643180
Part of me wants to imagine he might upgrade pintsize and they'll get a romance
>>
>>101643217
I'd put my money on Pintsize/Melon. For Roko I'd go with May, possibly Winslow.
>>
>>101643269
I think he'll go the perversion angle. Pintsize is getting character development to be a better person, Robocop is hiding her fetishes. Pintsize gets an upgraded body and the meet in the middle
>>
>>101643290
See that's why I think he's going to go with Pintsize/Melon. They're going to be the wacky comedy team. Roko/May gets the cop/criminal dynamic and the fetish stuff plays into May's delight at terrible pornography.

The Sun Maid girl is a top tier food mascot waifu. I sometimes kinda wanna buy raisins just because of the design for the box, but unfortunately I don’t particularly like raisins.
>>
>>101646223
Why not?
>>
>>101645973

Sadly Jeph wouldn't be this smart. He'd bungle it up where he's trying to say that "Being a Kinky Person is OK," then somehow make it where he slut-shames Veronica Vance or Raven Pritchard.
>>
>>101646577
The fact that she has a bread fetish is already a source of jokes in the strip. He might as well run with it.

Like I said, he isn't THAT smart. He'll bungle it up.

Guarantee that he'll write himself to a corner again and dump it excluding an occasional one strip in a year reference.

Liquidmark where are you
>>
>>101638706
He has to eventually NOT cater somebody for once
>>
>>101641760
They work in a fucking bakery. If Jeph meant for it to be analogous to something else he'd be hitting us over the fucking head with it because he can't write for shit, like how for years he kept trying to pass the robots off as an oppressed minority.
>>
>>101637157
Hey hand stabby I have boxes of raisins in my pantry that I got FOR FREE from my towns food bank, you know the place that gives poor people food.
>>
I hate when people whose only experience with poverty is being a poor college kid try and write from a low-income perspective.
>>
>>101649420
Seriously these fuckers have no idea they think oh I just have to buy store brand hotdogs teehee. Fucker you never had to walk 8 miles to the hand out center to stuff your pack with week old bread, pasta noodles in an unmarked box, rice, beans, dented cans and FUCKING RAISINS.
