Metapost: I love it when you give me things
You may think that you’re a dedicated fan of this blog: you comment on the front page, you comment in the forums, you wear your Comics Curmudgeon gear in public to the embarrassment of your spouse. But have you sent me an umbrella decorated with comic strips? No, of course you haven’t — unless you’re Sam Garst, that is.
Sam claims in his e-mail signature to be a “VP of Engineering” at a company that shall remain nameless to stave off its humiliation. Apparently, once you’re at the VP level, you’re just made of umbrellas. Many thanks, Sam, for helping me keep dry and watch Ziggy get all wet at the same time.
