I noticed Anna technically didn’t invite Jon, but I kinda liked how it sounded like vague shade so I kept that line how it was.

Anna (thinking): "Damn, there is no way to refuse Jon's request to bring along Tilly, without sounding like an unreasonable ass..."

No lie, sometimes I'll write down what a character is thinking, to explain to my future self how to draw their expression, and that's almost exactly what I wrote!

Wow - seems like you nailed Anna's expression then, since it conveyed her thoughts so accurately to me!

How many beers do you have to drink before you make your skin turn pink?
Drink too much and you'll get sick. Beers are pretty rich.

Well it didn't work for Homer Simpson and he drank a lot of beer!

Ugh, Jon you shit, stop trying to inflict your brother's nightmare on him outside of work hours. The fact that Jon is pretending he doesn't know exactly what he's doing is despicable. If he wants to continue to pretend he doesn't get it someone needs to show him a phonecam video of Tilly Tillying Seth into a sniveling, crying wreck to get it into his fat head that nobody is fooled about what he's up to.

"Hey Jon, you can't come but would you please invite Ken to our little Guy Fawkes get together for me?" Reading it like that would be picking a fight with Jon, doubly so for saying they'd rather have his friend there than him. The interesting question is whether that would actually be worse than what he's trying to do to Seth.

The comic's alternate title is Jerks Being Jerks to Other Jerks

Of course it is, hell is your own jerk tendencies reflected back at you through other people's distorting and amplifying effects. Still, there's an embarrassingly high amount of crossover between being a jerk and simply being a self-sabotaging level of stupid.

I both live under a rock and am an American, so I'm going to have to ask -
Who is Guy Fawkes and why does he have a fireworks-and-beer night?

Guy Fawkes Night (or Bonfire Night) celebrates the failure of Guy Fawkes (and the people he worked with who we never really talk about) being stopped from blowing up the House of Lords.

It's also got a lot of Catholic vs Protestant stuff, and I'm unsure how happy I am about celebrating a man getting hanged drawn and quartered, but it's an excuse to set off fireworks, and people usually just focus on that part.

Sort of like how Americans completely disregard the meaning of Cinco de Mayo and use it as an excuse to drink copious amounts of alcohol...for Mexico's independence or something...:D

Well, yes she didn't officially invite him, but I would have taken that as an implied invitation. Or at the very least I would have assumed that she was inviting since she was telling me about it.

That said, yes, double it. And bring hard liquor too. And hunch punch.

Yeah that's what I meant originally, but when I reread it the other possible meaning made me laugh so I kept it in instead of making the line clearer because sometimes I want the chaos lol
