Ah, it’s March 17th, which can only mean one thing: It’s time to trivialize centuries of Irish suffering and tragedy with the donning of green plastic derby hats and the adding of food coloring to beer. As a contrarian of Irish descent, I’d be offended by the whole tawdry affair, but I do enjoy festive headgear and green beer, so I’ll let it slide. Just keep giving U2 Grammys and we’ll call it even.

Now, on to some other odds and ends. Some of you may have been vexed trying to figure out what, exactly, Felicia’s t-shirt says this week. With today’s strip, you can clearly see that it says “JOSS”, but non-fanboys still may not know what it all means, man. It’s a nod and a wink to God himself, Joss Whedon, creator of many hours of quality filmed television entertainment, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Angel to the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it classic sci-fi Western Firefly.

Also, ‘Licia’s “Joss” shirt is in no way a knock-off or rip-off of the “Joss” shirt our friend Dawn wore to Melody’s birthday-related gathering at Perfect Swing in Norman. (Motto: Come Frolic In Our Squalor) Nope. Nuh-uh.

It IS a remarkable coincidence, tho. Downright eerie, if ya ask me.

Kiss me, I’m Irish.
