STUART
I need a website. Could you help me?

FREDERIQUE
Why don’t you hire an offshore development team?

STUART
They never do what I ask them to, and then run away with their first pay check.
That’s just a waste of good cortisol.

STUART
I’m living the dream!

ARTHUR
Your dream is that underage girls are watching you do pull-ups?

It’s a fucked dream!

Everything is good

STUART
Arthur, you don’t look great. Is everything alright?

ARTHUR
Yeah… I get good grades, work is great, I’m seeing a girl…

ARTHUR (CONT’D)
But then, when things go well, I get anxious, because it all doesn’t seem to be sustainable.

Golden silence

Stuart
I decided to go for the deaf-mute girls for a while.

Stuart (cont’d)
I tend to click better with people who let me speak. And I need a new workout for my hands.

Fred
Was I asking?

Party Hard

FRED
Awesome party man, why aren’t you dancing?

ARTHUR
Oh, I thought I did. (A beat.)
Though when Miley Cyrus joined in I already started to suspect to be sleeping…

FRED
Did she say when she’s back?

ARTHUR
Shouldn’t take long: she said it’s too hot and she needs her shorter latex.

Eat, Pray, Fight

Eat, Pray, Fight - optimistic geek comics by Frederique

STUART
I need someone to fake-fight with, to impress a hot chick.
Are you in?

FRED
I don’t see how this would work. What if you try being romantic instead?

STUART
I see what you are doing. But there is no way I read Eat, Pray, Love again.

FRED
I just like to see you cry.

Making sense

STUART
I have solved the general quintic equation under the shower.

ARTHUR
Me too, using only Fermat numbers.

FRED
And I regret having a chaos sandwich for breakfast.

Work force

Work force - geek comics from Frederique

STUART
I came to work straight from a party.

ARTHUR
It’s going to be a productive day then.

STUART
Well, I’m still unsure what we do here. What if we really are working for the evil?

ARTHUR
So your lousy work would be a good thing?

STUART
Being passive at work is my way to save the world.
