Weirdly appropriate, right?

Hasbro recalled the game because it was too difficult and the plastic Jon kept swearing at children

Queen Charles the Third damn it, proper soundproofing is cheap you know? Maybe remodeling is not so cheap, but all you need is just about any kind of thermo-acoustic insulation to dampen noise between apartments. It ought to have somewhere between zero and negative operating cost, so over the long term landlords who can't be bothered are effectively paying good money to inflict unnecessary problems on their tenants.

Someone, somewhere, must be sleeping soundly. Perhaps a baby penguin on the Ross Shelf of Antarctica? Maybe it would be a good idea to go check penguin pictures on the internet to find out. I wouldn't expect to find a true and timely answer, but you might find something cute if you try.

But how would I write my silly thin-wall shenanigans if their landlords are reasonable!

Thanks for the recommendations for a picture to cleanse after a long Monday!

Before 2017 I'd whisper, "council estates," as an answer to your question. That answer might count as political flamebait though, so I guess you are better off pointing at the ever-dwindling supply of cheap, lazy, absentee slum lords. You may be dating your comic into an anachronism though, after they finish "developing" every last square inch within a hundred miles of London into more "luxury flats" that nobody lives in.

Gosh, that one is really nice. I like the brown ones too, King Penguin juveniles, because of how they look so fluffy and awkward beside their sleek and pretty parents.

Oh yeah, this comic is definitely dated, I included a scene where someone had to walk to a cash machine to buy more beer at the pub, which is a total non-issue today, I decided to just have it live vaguely in the 2010s to make life easier

I remembered after reading this strip today why I started to wear earplugs when I sleep. It was essentially the same situation, except that we were the middle unit of a three story building. Try that kind of crap on both sides of you!

Perhaps less awkward than your colleague/friend's roommate failing to have her boyfriend hold her mouth shut while she's screeching her joy into the night. I heard this during a working call, murmuring back and forth, doing eleventh hour debugging. The couple had similarly failed to close her bedroom door, and didn't seem to notice my friend getting up to close it herself. Even with her door closed it was still annoying, but we got it done in time.

I used to live on a busy street between two nightclubs, so earplugs were a necessity for me too!
