You've discovered secret hover text! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZACHALOPE!!! This strip was actually suggested by Zach himself, so I can’t take all of the credit for making fun of him! :) Can I get a woot woot?

Or crickets. Those work, too.

Uhhhh… welcome to the new year! Look, the year on the comic changed!!! :’3

(ps: for those of you wanting to know what he’s saying in the second panel, I’ll give you a pro tip: it’s not “THANK YOU WONDERFUL MELISSAKITTY, YOU ARE THE BEST” but more like “OMG YES IT IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!”)
