Thanks to the Readers of "The Comic Strip that has a Finale Every Day!"

It's been a great run!
Tomorrow: Goodbye again!
A new standup comic attends his first convention He’s overwhelmed by it all and asks someone for help.
“Don’t worry, kid,” a veteran comic says. “This is basically a place to test out your material. Watch.”
A comic gets up on stage and announces, “Number 876!” He gets a mild reaction from the crowd.
“Number 521!” the comic continues. Some applause, but not much.
“What the heck is he doing?” the new comic asks.
“Well,” the veteran explains. “Since we’re all in the biz, we just yell out the number from the manual. Saves time. But this guy’s not doing very well.”
“Number 389!” the comics shouts. The crowd roars with laughter. The comic bows and exits stage left.
“What happened?” the new comic asks.
“Great finish! Nobody’s heard that one before!”
