The obvious solution: “We never tell the truth” is a lie. They tell the truth sometimes. They just slip once in a while.

So I probably shouldn’t be posting another webcomic post so soon and bury my CAD one. I don’t think anyone has even stopped by Da Blog since I posted the CAD post, which means it’ll have been the most recent post for absolutely nobody.

But I did want to mention that this is the first time we have actually seen the Paradox Department, existence first hinted at in strip 671, on the heels of Death of Being Wrestled to Death By Steve being… wrestled to death by Steve, role increasing as the ongoing “IWC crisis” has built.

Now, I’m not suggesting, contrary to what I indicated in Tuesday’s post, that this indicates David Morgan-Mar had this storyline in mind as far back as… exactly four years ago, actually. Well, his planning of this storyline would have to be an extreme coincidence not to have had that date in mind. But anyway, it’s not out of the question that he would have this storyline in mind that far back: anyone looking at a theme that screams “long-term planning” need only look to the Death theme. Every shake-up of the Deaths has been made with the theme’s next appearance in mind.

And… that’s it. As the timestamp on this post indicates, it’s wa-a-a-a-a-a-ay too late at night here on the West Coast and I’ve been fighting off a headache most of the night, and this isn’t even that momentous a moment, but I felt moved to comment anyway…
