My first draft of this strip was two beat panels and a single caption in the third saying “Okay, seriously, I quit.”

I don’t remember how long I stared at this image when I first stumbled upon it.  It was just sitting in my clip art collection – a collection I PAID for, mind you – like a legitimate and worthwhile image.  I knew I had to do something with it just so I’d never have to look at it again.  “Chex republic” ultimately sprung to mind because consarnit I loves me some Chex mix, and I devised a series of puns to lead me to this point – though unfortunately none that explain the “N” on the timothy-chewing bespectacled maize-lord’s scarecrow crown.  Suggestions on this are beyond welcome.

This strip is dedicated to filker Tom Smith, who could probably have squeezed nine or ten more puns out of this strip.

I’m currently winging my way to KeyCon in Winnipeg, where I’ll be performing this weekend as Worm Quartet!

In unrelated news, you might have noticed that the ads have recently changed on this site.  The provider of said ads has a survey available which, if you have time, I’d greatly appreciate you filling out, as it’ll affect both what sort of ads are served here and how much Rob and I get for them.  I asked Rob how I should go about subtly prodding you guys to take said survey, and he suggested I write a limerick.  So here goes:

There once was a man from the Internets
Who wrote strips fueled by mock’ry and bitterness
If you think they don’t stink
