*Yes, this again! I’ve done this enough times though, that I don’t have to actually unwind it all for it to make sense, right? I mean I could spend the next two weeks on each blanket and each pig… but man… that would be monotonous… I’d never do that, right? I hope I’m not going to do that. I hated myself for doing that the last time! 🙂
*He’s a beetle that is blue in color, hence his nickname Blue, which I’ve used since the inception of this strip. But, I’ve always known his actual name was Bailey. This seemed like a good opportunity to reveal his real name for the first time, in the middle of the black widow recurring gag. His name is a (hopefully) obvious nod to the classic Beetle Bailey comic strip by Mort Walker. There’s a secondary nod to the DC Comics character Blue Beetle as well.
