Originally there was expository dialogue given by the mayor (who, incidentally, is also a robot) in the first panel, but I cut it. Something I’ve been working on for years is paring things down to only the essentials. Never stop learning, kids.

Speaking of continuing learning experiences, I feel like I mess up my best friend’s birthday cake every year. It’s like a tradition of me being an idiot, only it lasts all year. The gift that keeps on giving!
