This was a particularly odd strip, in that it - and the next three comics - were drawnafterI'd already started drawing the One-Shots that follow. Basically, Keenspot - the comic company I was with at the time - was launching a weekly newspaper page of comics, and while I wanted to submit Sporkman for it, a serial storyline just wouldn't work in that format. So, before I'd even finished this first storyline, I started drawing standalone gag comics for the newspaper page. It wasn't until a few weeks later, in mid-November, that I finally finished the little storyline that I'd left hanging.
Note that the date I've posted this comic under isn't strictly accurate: this strip was originally drawn on November 14th, 2004.
