But seriously, what's up with Brutus conversing with people? Before when Brutus would converse with people, they would make fun of him and give him a wedgie (off-panel of course) but now they seem like friends. Brutus shouldn't have friends. It's not right that Brutus Thornapple is more popular than me. Not right at all.
