Shaenon: While working on animal drawings for this storyline, I came across these old sketches I did some years ago.  These meant something once, I swear.

Channing: This looks a bit like a pitch for a hypothetical webcomic about adorable children and their adorable animals.  Okay, who else immediately thought of the part in the Infocom-era text adventure game “Stationfall” where you have to lead an ostrich around on a harness when you saw the ostrich in this picture?  Show of hands!

…just me, huh?
