Here's strip 29 of Dude in Distress, and Clark discovers the identity of the previous update's "Unknown Caller."

I wonder if Femme Fantastic knows what Clark is talking about...!

Heh. "I just used my alien psychic powers." FF has a sense of humor!

"The prettier the girl is I'm talking to, the more my IQ drops." From someone who never had a girlfriend, that's a pretty good line!

In Clark's case, it's probably pretty much the truth. But there are some people you just end up acting naturally around without even realizing it.

Indeed. I would have, or maybe I actually have, said the same line slightly differently: "The prettier the girl that I'm talking to is, the more my IQ drops." Note the location of "is". I'm not sure whether one or the other is more or less correct... which probably means I'm talking to some pretty girl right now. So... who are you, you beautiful IQ sink? ;)

Wording it either way is fine--especially in conversational English. It's kind of clunky phrasing, regardless, and I thought about tweaking it, but figured, heck, Clark's buzzed and this is how he originally said it, so it's best to just let him and Femme chat without editorial interference.

"The prettier the girl is I'm talking to, the more my IQ drops." this is very true for a lot of guys, it is what makes high school so tough in the dating department. of course saying that is not too common, i'd chalk it up to the alcohol.

how cute!

Self deprecating flattery is Clark's game & he's good at it.

Clark, you smooth taking devil you. I'm wondering how he and FF can go on a date without her being mobbed by fans or attacked by a super villain? Maybe that's where the 'Distress' part comes in.

Episode 2 is titled "First Date," and your question will indeed be addressed.

*Slow clap* Beautiful save, Clark.
Black Rose 14th Feb 2017, 9:43 PM
Speaking of first date,maybe to avoid detection,Femme Fantastic would disguise herself???

I had wondered if the girl Clark was trying to talk to in the bar might have BEEN Femme Fantastic.

Nope. It wasn't Femme. To my knowledge, Femme doesn't have a secret identity.
