ONE: Interesting Times Friday Mailbag: “HI, BILLY MAYS HERE TO HAUNT YOUR DREAMS”
TWO: I hope at least one person agrees with me, because if not I’ll just come off as super insecure
As a rule I don’t write out lengthy news posts like other comics, but I just wanted to make a feeble excuse for missing Friday’s update and remind y’all that you can send questions to journalcomic at gmail dot com. I’m getting a little more spam these days, which in my convoluted reasoning means that even the spambots are reading this page now and therefore readership in general is up. Thanks all!
p.s.: I didn’t write out the feeble excuse because it is seriously pretty sad. Hardly worth mentioning, really. Let’s all just move on?
Please send in your questions to
journalcomic at gmail dot com
and maybe you will get to see your question answered
in a Friday Mailbag!
Alternately, you may see them in a “Friday” Mailbag,
which happens when I forget or am otherwise preoccupied on a Friday
and write it on Saturday instead!
[BEGIN COMMENTARY] I am going to toot my own horn and say that yes, I am pretty good at writing essays. “But wait,” you cry, “I’ve seen all your report cards and you never really do better than like a B average in English classes. How can you claim to be good?” Well, the B was attained with no great effort on my part, and I get good grades on essays I’ve banged out the night before. So I always said to myself, just think what you could achieve with only a little more effort! But rather than put in that effort, I remained satisfied with knowing that I could if I wanted to.
