Actually, Vern says something like this to Mr. Mighty ... or will once I get the full page up. As Mr. M mentions above, I had a birthday this week, and with family celebrating and all, I lost a day of drawing. UPDATE: Full page is now up! Why is Vern blaming Mr. Mighty for his problems? We'll find out next time.
By the way, if you were wondering about the Herbert A. Wirth Memorial Center (you can see the sign on the building in the first panel here), it's named after a real-life person. I read the story in Reader's Digest several years ago, and it stayed with me (reprinted here, please excuse the wild color scheme). Some people deserve to be remembered.
You can still click on the TWC vote button to get a preview of the next episode, where Mr. Mighty is about to give Vern some good advice.
In dog years, I'm only eight.
