It's just come to my attention that several of you are not reading Boxjam's Doodle. Simple lines, complex humor, and blue. Go now. You'll be glad you did.

I swapped some email with the pseudonymous Tycho Brahe of Penny Arcade, and to make a long story short, he's running a Schlock banner for me from time to time. If you're not reading Penny Arcade, I have to ask myself where you've been. If you came here to Schlock Mercenary from Penny Arcade, I know exactly where you've been. Did you wash your hands before you left?

I jest, of course. You are welcome here, with or without thorough hand-washing. I hope you enjoy the strip.

By the way, I'm happy to say that I recognize the fact that Friday's strip may generate some concern among faithful readers. Hello, fact. I know you... you played violin and sat across from me in junior-high orchestra, right? Man, I think it's funny how you generated all that reader concern on Friday. What a hoot!
