 This comic was totes for reals posted on Wednesday by virtue of my loose interpretation of time zones and the very fabric of space and reality which I think might be made of velvet.

I'm having trouble getting excited about Pixar's next movie, Inside Out. The premise of the film involves there being five personified emotions within us all (Joy, Anger, Fear, Disgust, and Sadness) that guide us through our lives, and the movie focuses on a young girl and her personified emotions.

I find this concept doesn't sit well with me. Personifying the various aspects of the girls mind and having them actively decide how she reacts to things makes it feel like the young girl is some sort of android being controlled by a very quirky AI. It leaves me weirdly uncertain how to feel about it, which I guess means the personified emotions in my head are as confused by it as I am.

I'm sorry, I've gotten a bit off-topic. Let's get back to talking about this comic I drew with personified representations of Larry's mind. Wait, that sounds familiar somehow... Oh, I must just be thinking about those other comics with Susan doing similar things!

Sam's fake facial hair was something I didn't plan on (how could I have? I didn't know Sam was Sam at first) I was concerned about how realistic it would be, and yes, I was actually worried about realism for once. I've been told it is possible to pull off, so yay, though I'm not sure if it would work quite as it does here.
