To be frank, this wasn’t going to be a second “Barfly and Schrodinger.” I needed to go take some photographs for the story I had planned for the rest of the week, and was going to go do them in the afternoon.
Then I got an E-Mail from uClick, letting me know that they’d signed the Washington Post Reader Express for the strip, and they needed the rest of the week immediately. Good news, bad news, you know how it goes….
So since I had a second gag planned for B&S for next week, I moved that one up and threw this one together quickly and filed it. Then I went to go take the photographs I needed to do the rest of the week. The storyline that should have started today starts tomorrow.
A peek behind the music here for those that like that sort of thing: generally, when you see a “Beethoven” strip or a “Barfly and Schrodinger” strip, they’re a sign that I was up against a deadline and needed a one-shot. They’re easier to do one-shots with than the other characters. Especially “B&S” since they’re essentially a vaudeville act and there are lots of bad old jokes I can turn on their head like this one.
And as for where Her Maj is, what was she preparing for when you saw her last? Hint towards tomorrow.
