Mixing my references with that title there, I just love how this song basically sums up every Gilbert and Sullivan Operetta, and also in a way every Shakespeare comedy, and also most modern media:

You're a liar should be used at least twice a year in this comic. :D

Also, I love Gilbert and Sullivan. I was able to play the Grand Poobah in my college's production of The Mikado. It was so fun.

It's certainly a thematically relevant phrase!

And nice! Lord High Everything Else! I once played Inez in The Gondoliers, a wonderfully campy role!

There always seems to be at least one of those roles in each of their plays. Always so much fun.

How cheap is beer there that you can just ignore half of it? (Jealous)

Not so much. That said, if you're particularly badly/well connected, lucky or diligent at searching you can find donkey piss sold at beer prices, and less commonly so the reverse.

If you drink real ales on draft, especially local ones, you can get £3 pints!

Past that it does take effort to get it cheaper, like becoming some form of professional alcoholic.

I don't know how universal this is, but where I live if you don't like a pint you can send it back for a refund, as long as you drank less than half of it.

Though, Jon is not confident enough to do that, and considering he lives near London, in the south of England, he's blown like five quid there.

Jon ought to blame his big brother for making him a liar, and demand penalty beers. It's not like Anna's weird hot friend's decision to make his social circle more complicated doesn't also call for compensation for other issues. (Exhibit A: http://wasteoftime.thecomicseries.com/comics/453 )

Oh, Seth owes Jon so many beers.

Probably owes Anna at least one too.

Sometimes, it's hard to see how complicated things are when you are on the inside. Of course, there are strange things in Jon's life and the lives of those around him that make things even more complicated.

True, it must seem fairly uncomplicated now that he's had time to do all the mental gymnastics of rationalising everything!

I don't see how this could possibly go wrong.

Yeah, when has a complicated friendship dynamic led to drama?

*surreptitiously slides all romcom and sitcom plots out of sight*

Nice shirt Ken, where'd you get it?

(And with that, you can tell I really wanted to comment but couldn't think of something to comment)

Aw yeah, I've been there before. Your comment is still appreciated!
(I kinda want Ken's shirt actually)
