Brutus Has Enough People Disagreeing With Him. He Doesn't Need You.
In my years of reading this comic strip, it's become clear that Brutus is the victim in this little stereotypical squabble. Brutus attempts to meet Mother Gargle in the middle but she just keeps backing up. Frankly, I'm disappointed that Brutus hasn't hit up some subreddit to get some advice. They'd hate Mother Gargle.
