Herb & Jamaal: Oh, Herb, I just LOVE shopping! I truly do!

Today's Herb and Jamaal is very exciting. First up is the "women love to shop" trope. And, oh, they "truly do." Then in the final two panels, we get some classic mother-in-law humor. The third trope is a little more tenuous, but I think a "doesn't marriage suck?" element is clearly present. Put it all together, and what we have here is a rare cliche trifecta.

It'll be a long time--though probably not long enough--before we see another one of these.
