Strip by: SuperFloxes

{The usual table spot, except now it's Liz and Arlene chilling instead of Jon and Garfield. Arlene has a cup of presumably coffee}
Jon {entering from some unknown location}: Liz?
Liz: Yes?
Jon {looking incredibly proud of himself}: Kerple nop sizz fwango mook gweeble adeewong
{Liz is surprised by the gibberish}
{Jon disappears completely}
Liz: I will never understand men
Arlene {with the same uncaring expression she's had this whole time}: I think he just called you a radish

The author writes:

Finally decided to submit something. I have no idea if we're still allowing these 'Linguistics with Liz' strips, but whatever. Pretty obvious idea to me. I'd be more surprised if it turned out that someone hadn't already done this. For my first real attempt at doing something like this, I'm quite proud of myself.

Is this more sexist to men, or to women? I honestly can't tell.
