Hagar the Horrible: A wife must get up before her husband, lay out his clothes, make his breakfast, pack his lunch and kiss him goodbye.

See, ladies, being oppressed by the male hegemony and having no say whatsoever in what you do with your life isn't so bad, now is it?


  1. This is interesting social commentary for a strip that's supposed to be about Vikings.

    Has it ever been made explicitly clear what Helga thinks of Hagar carrying off the women of the villages that he ransacks to perform unspeakable acts? Maybe "keeping your mouth shut" is part of a Viking wife's job too.
