This dialogue used to be different, but it wasn't awkward enough so here it is 😬

He called attention to Seth's height!
It'll be useful later when they're trying to save Santa and only Seth is tall enough to reach the lever to stop the machine that's hurting Santa! OMFG U GUYS I'M CALLING IT RIGHT NOW!!!1!!11!!eleven!!

One of the few times I don't need to fix the poses because they're SUPPOSED to be stiff haha

This is more awkward than a giraffe's middle school dance. I assume it would be considering how long they are and junior high being the time where kids start usually either hit puberty or are still in the awkward transitionary period.

Huh, now I am imagining a shorter giraffe with a taller one and trying to figure where to place his hoof.

I mean, if Seth were any animal, giraffe is a pretty good fit, pretty much for the reasons you gave

Dad: "You remind me more and more of your mother. I kept getting neck pain by trying to look into her face too."

ooooh. Not even the 'right hand of Christian fellowship' shake. Lefty only.

For those of you not from the American South, the right hand of Christian fellowship is one of those things in Evangelical churches to show welcoming and acceptance into churches. To not do so is a major faux pas and can cause great division within a congregation. And to shake someone's hand lefty is especially egregious since in old-timey churches, those who were left-handed were touched by the devil to do so. (no, I'm really not making that up - my Dad was told that as a child and forced to write right-handed when he was growing up, and 2) I'm a preacher so I've heard that from old pastors too. Crazy, right?)

Oof, Seth would NOT do well there, being a lefty he's nearly always going to offer his left hand unless the other person puts their hand out first

I think I might have an idea or two about how this could have been more awkward, but I'm not sure and maybe I shouldn't say anything?

Shoot, the only simple way I can think of to try and make this comment more awkward would be to try and link to a really bad comic and compare it favourably, but I'm not enough of an arsehole to do that. There has to be a how-to guide on the internet for how to make things more awkward, but is it good enough to be worth following? I could imagine a lot of angry people making rants titled like that about how horrible and/or awkward someone else was.

Now I'm imagining some kind of awkward olympics, where tripping out the gate is actually a good thing

Apparently I'm not even a contender. So let's point and laugh at someone for being really awkward, and then ask them why they're not laughing while trying to sound genuinely clueless.

That last panel with the horrible awkward hand shake is hilarious, oh my WOOORD. At least he didn't try to go in for a high-five... >_>

It was a real challenge to make it look suitably stiff without just looking like I made a mistake haha
