This strip is a happy accident. The original story is a Christmas Party setting where Regular Vince was urged to hit on an attractive co-worker. Regular Vince being an avoidant type of guy, politely refuses and replies in his Regular Vince sarcastic tone. That and at that point in time, I was obsessed with “Terraformars”, a violent action anime where enhanced humans with insect/animal abilities fight against giant roaches.
Don’t ask. Just google that shit.
Anyway, at that point in time I was obsessed with the Asian Giant Wasp and the Paraponeira Clavata. I was wondering where the Tarantula Killer too since they rate pretty high in the insect bite pain scale. I likened the other horny guys in the bar as flies and girls they’re hitting on as flytraps. I was drunk and extra sarcastic.
Mimie drew it as a store scenario where the character Dude urges Regular Vince to hit on a customer. That’s pretty much a no-no and unprofessional. Unlike the bar scenario, which makes Regular Vince a total douchecanoe, this one makes him in a way eccentric but professional. In a way, the strip made him look cool.
Not that I’m not cool all the time. But Regular Vince is my hero.
