Oh boy! My first comic that only makes sense if you've read a certain previous comic! Which is this one.
Ed looks rather effeminate for a male jock character. Long eyelashes, purple eyeliner. I remember Birdo in the instruction book for Super Mario Bros. 2 was described as a being guy who puts on a bow cuz he thinks he's a girl, so maybe it's another Nintendo thing.
Wait. If Birdo was a guy, how did it spit out eggs?
