This one was initially a weeeee bit more subtle.  I was trying to build the speaker up as an intelligent woman doing a tough job well, and who really doesn’t deserve the drunken harassment she gets while she’s plying her art, and this is why strip’s as wordy as it is.  But the subtlety did not result in sufficient comedy, so I threw in a cannon.

I’m currently on day nine of an annoying viral plague that seems to be at its worst at night, so I’m gonna keep this short and leave you with the words of Mrs. Shoebox so I can take my NyQuil and go to bed.

MRS. SHOEBOX’S ASSESSMENT OF TODAY’S STRIP:  *snort!* That’s dumb.  Like, if intelligent is over here, this is waaaaay down the hall.  It’s an amusing dumb, though!
