Enviromentally Friendly Language Mangler

Well everything seems back to normal on the Comics.com Born Loser site so we'll try to do two with one stone today.

In Monday's strip has Brutus saying he was offered a "green collar job" from Veeblefester. Sadly the "green collar" referred to some kind of mold Veeblefester for some reason acquires on his collars. That's kind of disgusting and I'm pretty sure outside the realm of Brutus' job description.

In today's strip The Born Loser once again mangles the English language but doesn't do as good a job this time. Technically, factional would be correct usage as faction literature are books based on historical figures and actual events but woven together with fictictious accounts, like In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. So this isn't really funny but does show that Chip needs to do more research.
