|all the cats|
This is one thing that can happen if you try to meet deadline while working in distracting conditions. It wasn't until I saw this cartoon in the VCU student newspaper that I realized what I had done, in pursuit of realistic, detailed cat teeth. That cat is SCARY! Sorry about that.
Lots of people want you to stay home on election day. That way the vote will be mostly their hard-core cranks. Maybe special interests have called all the candidates too much into question for you. So you don't want to vote. But how does anyone know you're not just lazy? You really can let people know that you care about voting, just not about any of the candidates.
Even electronic voting machines still allow write-ins. And the last panel is supposed to end with "TELL them they can't run you off."
