New Strip! Chloe learns that "masquerading" is business as usual in the strip club.

First! :D

Just as we had figured, the ethnic accents were roleplaying.

And that's another wink to Stripperella when Ginger claims that she has like 4 different accents and has trouble remembering which accent to use with which regular. Persie in Stripperella changed her accent (and apparent ethnicity) every episode, a little mystery that never was explained... I guess, thanks to Ginger, now we know the reason, haha.

It looks like Cookie is checking out Chloe's ass.

ok i feel a lot better about the accent shit now, though i'm also kinda curious how much is written in advance vs what could've been retconned since the forum was so thrilled about it, though i also never watched stripperella (ok i think i did when it first came out but don't remember anything) so that reference was 10 miles above me

@TJgalon: Agreed. This is a great strip. :-bd

Hey, everyone, remember when I posted this ten days ago?

I believe this is my time to gloat, yes it is. I had Cookie's character down pat. :))
We, the old ghosts of Pizen Bluff, who still roam about this dead forum screaming imprecations at the characters and whatnot.

At least now the joke is about racist folk eating up stereotypes like that.

@Cortez, sounds like Cookie is being a little racist by called non-asians "round eyes". Not that I'm offended.

I'm intrigued about where this is going, but it feels like it's taking three pages for Chloe to come to the the same conclusion that Teddi is someone different at the club. But is is home-life the lie or the club. Reminds me of Billy Joel's song "The Stranger".

Yuki in Ma3 has used the term "round-eyes" before, come to think of it... iirc it was when she wanted to be mean to Gary.... I guess Dave really likes making Asian girls use that term......

...

hey, where's Autumn!? did she leave early or what? I wanted her & Chloe to have a talk about her near-death experience and Chloe's hunky psychopomp bf... :((

I was wondering where Autumn was, too. She probably had to leave right after work to attend an NA meeting.

This is actually some fairly interesting development. I feel foolish for assuming the worst, though to cut myself some slack, it did seem to be laziness at first, and the strip had been so superficial that I didn't even consider thinking there'd be another layer to the accents.

Anyways, while I like the development here, I can't quite see the relevance to the overall "story." I understand Chloe is learning about how the strippers use proverbial masks to manipulate men, similar to a succubus, like the time she fed from the energy of some high school boys when she infiltrated Teddy's school as the "sexy French teacher" (though, one would think any succubi academy worth its fire would have covered pre-existing Earth seduction industries). Yet, so what? Did Chloe believe Teddi wasn't a vast departure from the original Teddy? If she is thinking that Teddi also *acted* to seduce men, then she should be more concerned about the "why" rather than the "if."
I don't know, I'm not really looking for answers, merely spouting some rhetorical questions and junk. Chloe was meant to be somewhat intelligent, right? Since she had been off-screen or an inactive extra during the majority of that horrendous Teddi whoring/Pandora pranks are boring arc, it wasn't quite clear what her perception of Teddy had become after his mutation, so her seeming somber about the strip club being full of illusions doesn't feel like dots are connecting.

Yeah, "round-eyes" is a racial slur, though I think it is simply a counter to "slant eyes," so... simply tit for tat? :))

I like your point about is "home-life the lie or the club." I hadn't considered it and it does address some of my issues about the relevancy of Chloe's realisation.

Oh good! It was all just the strippers playing a part for the sake of ignorant patrons. Now maybe we can complain about more important things. 8-|

Especially since, as she said, they seem to enjoy those stereotypical personas.

Fourteenth! Fabulous.

While it's welcome to get an explanation for the accents, and not wanting to rain on the parade, but doesn't anybody else find the writing here a bit clunky. Plot exposition isn't always the easiest thing to do but why would the girls tell Chloe all about the reason for their club personas in such detail when she's supposed to have been working there for weeks if not months? Presumably that was part of her introduction to the place and how it operated, not to mention part of her getting to know the people who worked there.

You'd think at least one of them would have said "but surely you know all this?".
