This one’s dumb, but I like to think it’s a fun kind of dumb.  I initially had the last panel as a beat panel, but didn’t feel this quite worked, and my wife concurred.  Dragging out the awkward post-yelling silence after the conclusion of the event seemed like a way to go, and thus became the way I went.

MRS. SHOEBOX’S ASSESSMENT OF TODAY’S STRIP: I dunno.  I like it, but you already showed this to me in progress, so I can’t really judge it.  Show it to…uh…that guy.  Douchebag McNubblynuts.

Oh yeah, I should probably mention that my band, Worm Quartet, covers “Weird Al” Yankovic’s “I’ll Be Mellow When I’m Dead” on the new tribute album “Twenty-Six and a Half,” which you can order here if you’re so inclined.

See you on Friday!
