The author writes:

I noticed the apparent colouring error in the November 30th strip and sought to "correct" it. However then I realised that the colourist was on to something that the inker hadn't realised. After over 33 years of antics, Jon should be used to it by now. He can barely manage the energy to look at whatever wacky scheme his cat has come up with today.
