So, I think this is one case where the delay in getting these comics done actually helped. The original idea was to fill the middle panel up with exaggerated, strawman versions of the kind of congoer complains I really don't have much patience for. It's ground the comic ha s covered before... which is part of the problem. Also, it's really hard to come up with lines like that which are obvious enough to be recognizable yet exaggerated enough to actually be a joke. There's always SOMEBODY out there who'll make a complaint even sillier than whatever I came up with as a joke, but mean it with absolute sincerity. And on the off chance that person actually READS my joke, he'll think I'm deliberately making fun of him personally, and THAT'S no good. Buuuut that was the idea I had, so I was gonna go with it.

...but then weeks and weeks passed as I fiddled with other comics, and something wonderful happened. I'd drawn everything, and sat down to write out the text for that middle frame, and I couldn't remember ANY of the stuff that was supposed to go there! Somehow, I'd totally failed to write notes of whatever web-based whining had so annoyed me in the first place, just my reaction to it. And the more I looked at the page, the more I liked leaving that stuff to the reader's imagination, where I can't get in trouble for anything. And better yet, that meant the page was DONE now! Everybody wins!
