What Day Is It?

OW!! Is it me or does Brutus' shirt in today's strip make your eyes hurt? It's not even drawn the way it's supposed to be drawn. Every line is straight when it should crinkle around the collar and arms. I can't draw worth a damn but I sure as hell would make the lines uneven or something to make it look more realistic.

Another thing that bothers me is February 29th isn't exactly all that rare. It happens every four years like clockwork. It's like saying a presidential election is rare. You know what's rare? A regime change in Cuba, a total solar eclipse, Halley's Comet.

I also like how Chip emphasizes today is February 29th by putting the calendar in every panel even if it means it's on top of the speech bubble.
