    I wonder if Digger gets as mad about being called “fat” as human women usually do …


  2. BunnyRock says:

    I wonder how most of the human women i know would respond to being called “bear”. Given they’re getting Diggers species wrong and she’s not even an Eutheria placental mammal, the “fat” comment is probably the least of her objections. It could be seen as just adding insult to injury. Then again, she didn’t seem to mind much that Ed called her a “fat mousie”.

  3. FixerofBrokenThings says:

    Between Digger and Ed, ‘fat mousie’ is a term of endearment, I’d say.

  4. Hunter says:

    She’s probably too scared to think about it right now.

  5. Xyon says:

    Grim Eyes making a suicide stand for “prey”. He has changed much since the first time we saw him.

  6. Lupus says:

    Grim Eyes really would have changed if SHE was now a him.

  7. Raiden Kitsune says:

    She. Grim Eyes is female.

  8. Creatura says:

    Well, thinness as a sign of beauty is a very human thing. “Fat” could very well be a compliment for some of these animal cultures.

  9. Silver Guardian says:

    @Creatura: Thinness wasn’t always a sign of beauty, though, even among humans. Women of healthy girth used to valued, and “fat” was a word that was rarely used, even to describe the plumpest one might see.

    it’s only in past couple centuries or so that thinness became a sign of beauty, and even then, it was never taken to such extremes as it is these days. What fashion magazines would call a “plus-sized” woman today, was the standard size for them barely fifty years ago.

    And frankly, I’d like to see that old standard returned. I don’t pretend to speak for anyone else, but I’m well and truly sick of seeing the giraffe-lady mannequins that are in boutique windows today. 😛
