A long-time reader recently contacted me, in some surprise that there are written annotations underneath every comic. She says that in her memory there never used to be text underneath the comic, and is accusing me of an elaborate hoax in which I went back through the archive, wrote notes on every strip in secret, and then uploaded them all to the website overnight as some sort of ill-conceived prank.
Her second theory was that she has somehow switched over from the Berenstain Bats universe, and now everybody inexplicably remembers them as the Berenstein Bats.
Her third theory was that the entire universe somehow disappeared and was replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. And that this has happened several times.
I don't really have any explanation for this, except to say that my mother really does like my work, she just expresses it in odd ways.
