I know.  I know.  WTF?

I wanted to take this one dark, believe me.  I rarely get to work with a clip that is as sweet and innocent as this.  The possibilities for corrupting it seemed limitless.

But somehow, in the course of writing it I ended up with this dialogue.  Now, I wouldn’t post it if I didn’t think it was funny, but it’s not really the kind of stuff you’ve come to expect out of this strip.  It’s one of a select few I’ve done which would be at home on the comics page of a mainstream daily newspaper.

Ah, what the hell.  You have to do the unexpected from time to time.  I promise this doesn’t signal a change to “tame” humor.
