More Depressing Anecdotes

Here we go again. In today's strip, Brutus is talking to himself this time about running into someone from high school who either used to bully him or was Brutus' rival in everything (possibly even Gladys' heart? I think it's time for a flashback). The thing I don't understand is why Brutus tried to think of a put-down. If I ran into an old nemesis from high school I wouldn't try to insult them, I'd try to 1-up them. Brutus could stretch the truth and say he's Rancid Veeblefester's right-hand man (I'm assuming Veeblefester is TBL's equivilent of Lex Luthor) and that he's married to a "statuesque blond" and you have to admit that Gladys is a statuesque blond.

Man, everything about today's strip just seems very depressing....
