Time for a contest! The first person who can correctly identify the sources for all of the colorful metaphors in today’s strip wins either a Debutante Detectives desktop wallpaper or a custom-made icon of yourself like the ones Chris and I have on the About Us page. Just e-mail your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll post the winner (or winners, if we’re feeling generous!) in the forums.
For the complete, unobstructed text of Ven’s rant, see this post in the forum.
