The advent of this comic was delayed and almost prevented by the White Screen of Death (worse than the Blue Screen of Death because there isn't even a slim possibility of CTRL-ALT-DEL-ing your way out of it), which erased an hour's worth of colouring (yes, I should have been saving my work, but when I'm concentrating really hard, I often forget about the "save" function). I yelled at my computer for a bit, watched Battlestar Galactica, and finished the comic just before midnight. I hate computers. Yes, I do.

Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, we see four winged keys fluttering about as a hand tries to grab them. Two of them are labelled, respectively, "WEST OF BATHURST" and "BY KARI MAAREN."

Panel 2: In the Davies College porter's lodge, Kenneth sits behind the desk, writing on a piece of paper. Baldwin is leaning on the desk.

Baldwin: I locked myself out of my room.

Kenneth: Imagine my surprise.

Panel 3:

Baldwin: May I have a key?

Kenneth: Aren't you Don of Hall now? Use your master key.

Panel 4:

Baldwin: My master key is inside my locked room.

Kenneth: Of course it is.

Panel 5:

Baldwin: May I please have a key?

Kenneth: You have two keys. The fact that you seem to be unaware of their purpose is no concern of mine.

Panel 6: Baldwin stands there making an eminently frustrated face.

Panel 7: Baldwin shakes a fist at Kenneth.

Baldwin: Curse your sarcastic logic, evil key-lord from Hell!

Kenneth: There are couches in the basement; have a good night.

Alt-Text: If Kenneth Malcolm had been on that [bleep]ing plane with those [bleep]ing snakes, the movie would have lasted for only twenty minutes. However, the lap-dog would still have died.
