This one went down in history as the notorious ‘thong one,’ and thus earned a certain level of infamy on campus. For a whole year after this strip ran, the new head editor would always make a point of asking me “Any thongs in this one?” before accepting my weekly submissions. She would also make a show of being disappointed when my answer was ‘no.’ I’m fairly certain she was mocking me.

The joke is rather odd in this one, now that I think about it, but really, who cares about the joke? According to popular opinion, it was all about the thong. Maybe it was.
