Attention to details

So I always thought that the quote was, "There but by the grace of god go I", but snooty know-it-all Google claims that it's, "There but for...", which is derived from the full quote, "There but for the grace of God goes John Bradford". Apparently this was uttered by a guy named John Bradford, which makes some sense. It's a good thing that I do such extensive historical research for the comic; misquoting John Bradford just won't do! Anyhoo, not only does "there but by" scan better than "there but for", it neatly sidesteps the klassic komedy pitfall, "What's a Butfor?" I would totally pwn Bradford in any quote-writing slam.

On related news: I've now made $2.18 from the ads on this site while spending $25 on a Flickr Pro subscription and $320 for a professional graphics tablet (that lasso tool doesn't lasso itself, you know!), so as you can see, I'm already ahead. The dotcom economy marches forward.

The next strip will be up tomorrow.

Keep up the good work (posting your ad revenue is very nice of you, I've often wondered if anyone other than Google could make money off of AdWords.)
