    Ha ha! It is most ineffective and insufficient to say the least, well, nonetheless, this strip effective May 27, of the year Two Thousand and Thir-teen, to wit:

    This very jocular and most entertaining strip has thus lost it’s effective punch, due to the non-plus way that Horace’s English, or to be more specific, his grammar, has betrayed the societal excellence that this humor-based art form and artistic endeavor has so previously attained to….
    Therefore, it is rendered Non Modus Operandi, and to further the point, it is also E Pluribus Unum, and Ad Hoc whatever Mr. Willy Wonka said, and Caveat Emptor…. (Et-Cet-errrra, Et-Cet-errra…. with trilled r sound]

    Okay, that’s a real site in KC. Having lived there, I know. If I was still living there, I’d show up just for laughs to see who else did the same.

    @IamJayBluE: Your snarkery about “byelaw” is undercut somewhat by the “it’s.” As for your unusual use of hyphens, … I gotta dash.

    I had to look up the address on Google Street view. Now I know why the address looks so familiar.

    Universal Uclick, publishers, are located at the address mentioned in the strip.

    @Jon88

    Actually, the word bylaw was misspelled (it’s bylaw, not byelaw)…. and as for the hyphens, it’s to separate one set of thoughts from another, in order to avoid a long running paragraph…. we do this on another strip on GoComics……
    -
    The other “snarkery” was really in imitation of the “official-type” letter, and part was an off-handed tribute to “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, where Mr. Wonka also did this….
