The previous strip about the claw machine may have been a true story, but what brought it to mind was another IM conversation with my friend -=ShoEboX=-.  If that didn’t put him in the lead for inspiring PartiallyClips strips through IM, then this one did.  His son Steve did ask for “2 Supermans” for his birthday.  I only briefly considered changing that to “Supermen” but “Supermans” is a lot funnier.
