Shaenon: Looking through my thumbnails, I found a few strips we sketched out but never used.  I don’t think we’ve ever shared these before.  If we have, pretend we didn’t for my sake.

Channing: We must be okay, because even I don’t remember the first one. The second one is a couple of authors doing that thing where we recognize a problem that no one cares about and that everyone can easily make up their own minds about, panic, and start writing stuff that no one needs to fill a hole only we perceive. It’s an author thing. I believe I panicked first in this one, which is typical.
