Let’s see if Vince gets this one. Probably not.

Now THAT was funny! 🙂

Yes, I get it.
No one has bothered to explain the Vision Quest one yet though. Thanks.

Cray, the vision quest one shows the brave finding that his spirit animal is a sexy furry, which excites him, and he decides that that made him unfit to lead the tribe.

Thank you for explaining, Craig. That pretty much confirms my original guess. I still don’t get why it’s funny or clever. It’s just stupid IMO.
At least the comic above has some wit. Its humour is dry, but it’s there (it’s the kind of joke my father would tell).

Who is Vince?

It’s not just a sexy furry, but a silver fox indicates a “bottom”.

Me too, I used to feel like a man in a woman’s body.
Then my mom gave birth to me.

but we know who he is.
I’ve been very open about my handle changes, just for the record.

*To be more precise, I’ve openly announced the handle changes when they happened. So, yes, you know who I am. Because I’ve told you. If I wanted to hide my identity from commenters as well as GP admin, it doesn’t take a genius.

@Juan I think the collar and leash indicate bottom much more than being a silver fox.
Besides, I though he was a wolf. LOL!!

So in order to truly appreciate it, you have to have some awareness of several subcultures. [Just an observation, not an indictment, BTW.] In Native American lore, the vision quest is not the “find yourself” for juvenile delinquents at various non-native summer camps; it’s a serious endeavor designed to bring a young person fully into adulthood. One of the purposes is to find one’s spirit animal (similar to a patronus in the Harry Potter universe), which is the animal you will model yourself after and call upon in your darkest hours. That the son finds out that his spirit animal is a ‘sexy furry’ who is a submissive (thanks Craig & Juan) awakens both a sense of shame and an awareness that it will be insufficient to sustain him in his chosen role as future tribal leader. Hence, he realizes he will be unable to assume that role.
Think of it as if Cinderella found out the Fairy Godmother responsible for creating her dress for the ball is a slightly older Lena Dunham who can only conjure up something resembling a flour sack covering a leather bustier.

Okay, thanks for the explanations. It makes more sense now.

Why is “being bottom” equals “inability to be an effective social leader”?
Or, being a gay?

My thoughts exactly, Ted.
