The metacartoonist attempts to divert attention from his low prolificity by delivering a really big episode, which ends the Ho sidetrack to the CommieCon flashback during the Jihad storyline, and also serves to allay any fears you may have had about the bear in the hat suffering during this hot, hot summer weather (note: actual summer weather may differ).

The script used to make this toon:
