*sigh* Place-names. For those who may not know, this strip is set somewhere in coastal Maine. "Capt Kenny Bunk" is obviously named for Kennebunk, ME. Which is two towns south of me.

Can anyone explain this to people who aren't native English speakers?

Here in America, when a union goes on strike, people who cross the picket line to work for the business are called scabs.

If it's any consolation, I'm a native English speaker and I didn't get this.

@silberbaer: Ah, so it's US specific. Thanks for explaining! @jgbishop: yeah, a little bit :)

It's not US centric - it was being used in England in the 1700s. But I can see why it isn't necessarily known to many people: https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/12690/why-are-people-who-cross-picket-lines-called-scabs

in case variolation isn't widely known - it's bascially taking scabs from an infected person and using it to vaccinate someone else

Anyone British who grew up in the 80s or has seen "Billy Elliott" will know the word "scab" I'm sure

Yeah, they just *stare*. A dog sitting in a corner, watching and breathing heavily would be a lot more disturbing
