I understand what he’s saying, of course, but I can’t make it make any sense in any context.

    It’s a double . . . f-minus for having to wear smoke detectors, f-minus for the woman wanting it to match her outfit. Fashion before safety! That’s why people wear high heels, too.

    I saw this as a jab at the stupidity of management - the tendency toward heavy-handed, ridiculous fixes to simple problems.

    I think it’s just that F-minus comics are usually more droll than they are funny.

    The previous sentence (from pretty lady) was “But it doesn’t match my (shoes, dress, purse…)!”

    Yes part of the Joke is that she doesn’t want to wear something that doesn’t match her clothes. The other part of the joke is that her boss is stupid enough to require everyone to wear a smoke detector.

    I think it would look better on the woman than the guy sporting it in the middle.

    She needs to wear two, side by side. Aesthetically pleasing… :-)

    And of course we all know that smoke detectors contain little bitty bits of radioactive material in them in order to work, so wearing one on one’s person makes perfect sense.

    I do find a little humor in the implication that the women would be okay with wearing the smoke detector if it *did* match her clothes.

    That is, she is not protesting the incredible stupidity of wearing the smoke detector, she is merely protesting the style/color.

    And when I think about what happens if there IS a fire. Either the fire goes unnoticed because no-one is nearby, or it scares the bejeezes out of the person wearing the thing when they would smell the smoke anyway.

    The woman seems to be drawn differently than the artist’s usual style, especially her face. Is that part of the joke?

    I’m more confused by this sentence: “I understand what he’s saying, of course, but I can’t make it make any sense in any context.” How can you understand it if it doesn’t make sense to you?

    Eric, I understand what’s literally happening, but I don’t know why or what the joke is. If I don’t mention that, somebody will write “he’s telling hem to wear the smoke alarms because the emergency system is down, duh!”

    Isn’t that the joke? Or does that seem like a normal non-cartoon world thing to do?

    I think the problem is that F-Minus cartoons aren’t really jokes. They just seem to be more “what would happen if….” setups. There might be a short chuckle imagining something, but usually I just wonder why I still read them.

    And I agree with Powers (13). The woman is drawn in a different style than usual. Maybe she’s supposed to be exotic.

    I’m not sure about “exotic” but would agree she’s meant to be somewhere in the attractive / stylish / hot orbit. And McGaffey’s (#4) take on the preceding dialogue sounds right — she’d be one to bring up matching, the boss isn’t introducing the concept but responding.
