This one was originally published on St. Patrick’s Day. Without that piece of information, this strip just seems really weird. This strip also marks the first appearance of two of Orneryboy’s co-workers, Arbor and Rod. I don’t even think Arbor’s name ever appeared anywhere in the comic. Rod was intended to be a totally unlikeable douchebag, but now I just feel bad for the guy. First panel ever? Coffee to the face!
