Anthropomorphic: the attribution of human motivation, characteristics, or behavior to inanimate objects, animals, or natural phenomena. If couches happened to be anthropomorphic, I can’t help but believe that their lives would be pretty dreadful, just being sat on all day. Things would get even worse with cats in the house, as you then have to factor in all kinds of chin rubbing, jumping and scratching.
Whenever I read this strip, I imagine that the couch sounds just like
the Bill from School House Rock.
