Off-Panel Voice: What?
Panel 2: Barbara appears out of nowhere and gets right in Casey's face.
Barbara: I knew you were evil, but nobody told me you were stupid too! What's wrong with you?

Dedication: This comic is dedicated to Irena, Sarah, Katherine, Greg, Sang, Spencer, Peter, and anyone else who has ever been the victim of one of my many anti-English rants.
