*When I was a kid, I definitely remember one year where we actually did leave the Christmas decorations up all year so that they were already up by the time the next Christmas came around. This strangely seemed to really bother some people.
As promised when I returned from my week-long absence due to illness and lack of Internet… I’ve been catching up and trying not to flood too much in the process. All the episodes of ‘Sects from the past week or so are up now, but all were retro-posted. This means that they were back-dated to make it easier for finding them in the archives, but harder to find as new posts for my followers who just use their WordPress Reader.
To make things easier, below are links to all of the recently retro-posted episodes in case you haven’t seen a new cartoon since last Tuesday’s (02/07/2017) episode:

Read all those, and you’re all caught up! There was no Sunday comic last week as that was the height of my sickness… and I skipped Friday this week to get back on schedule so I will be posting a Saturday episode this week instead that will go up very shortly. Thanks again for the patience, and I hope everyone enjoys catching up on my nonsense! 🙂
*It’s so weird when reality is less believable than an old Seinfeld episode, isn’t it? Wow!
*There is a longer origin for this joke… the short version is, I once knew a guy who was constantly misunderstanding stuff to the point where some of us who knew him began trying to predict what strange thing he would think we said. It was amazing how easy it was to get inside his head after a while. 🙂
*It’s funny because it’s true! Seriously… I was really sick on Sunday, the kind of sick of which you never wish to speak of again… but it did inspire this comic, so there’s that 🙂
*Bringing bacon week to a conclusion with a nice Kevin Bacon reference and just one more Clay Aiken bit to drive home the bit from yesterday. Also, I kind of like how the cartoon bacon looks, so that might get used more often now that it exists.
*Full disclosure… with all the pork in politics, I decided to mostly make this be bacon week! As I was parodying the dreidel song, I accidentally stumbled into the Clay Aiken reference. I lived in Raleigh for most of my life, so I was aware when he was on American Idol and lost to Ruben Studdard, though I honestly couldn’t tell you much more about the show than that. Fortunately, my horrible puns require very little actual working knowledge of things to execute. 🙂 For what it’s worth, I am more familiar with Eric Idle, as a huge fan of Monty Python, so there’s that.
