What is said in this comic really happened. It also might be about someone you know. Someone who refused to play World of Warcraft when I extolled the game, only to be completely consumed by it a few months later when ‘someone else’ suggested it to them. Why do they do this to me? I really can’t express, with words, the frustration this causes. That’s why there’s this comic instead.

I think it’s a flaw, in humanity. When you suggest a treat to someone that they would like, they immediately go into some mode where their goal is to ignore you. I can’t tell you the number of times I have told friends to read Harry Potter, or listen to the Justin Bieber album only to be rebuked, or called hurtful names. Sometimes I tell children they will like some candy, and they also have a bad reaction; a lot of screaming and running. Of course, not long after, these people ‘discover’ these nuggets of wealth on their own. Imagine that. Maybe it’s evolution.

Back in the neanderthal days, it was common practice for one caveman to suggest to another caveman that something amazing was by the lake. Turns out, that ‘something amazing’ was a hungry cougar. Not the hot-older-woman kind, either. The kind that eats you, face first. This lead to humanity’s refusal to listen to me. Survival of the fittest, I guess.
