I like to think that they came up with some kind of murder by inflation. Possibly involving expanding foam.
A truly excellent comic, it really made me feel to see that even BFG and Traingirl can achieve happiness. Misanthropy is not a barrier! Except, of course, you have to kill anyone who overhears something that would destroy your misanthropic reputation.
With the ongoing debate, in my worldview rape is less bad than murder (victim is still alive afterwards, has chance to live out their life). I do think it's strange that depiction of murder is much more acceptable than depiction of rape, but not nearly so strange as the depiction of consensual sex apparently being considered less acceptable than depictions of murder.
