So i dont know if this issue has been brought up before or if anyone noticed it. Its just something i find funny. And that is Dang's name! Her name is "Dang Thu Mai" which is most likely from south east asia. I found it funny while reading the comic when her name first appeared I was like "what? haha, thats her real name? The reason for this is that My first language in Spanish, and if you say her name in spanish it sounds a lot like you're saying "Damn, Yo momma" which i find hilarious. So yeah, I think the readers of the comic are most likely english native speakers so i dont think many would make the same stupid connection I did :) Also I am in love with this comic and Dang is totally my fav character :D

I admit I picked the name Dang because it was kinda funny. Thu Mai I picked for sounding more elegant to me. I've been told by people more fluent in Vietnamese that Dang and Mai are fairly common names but Thu was is pretty strange.
