Nothing personal, but by this stage in the morass of grammar grumbling the reply was mandatory. 🙂

Well, most of the replies…
Seems others have a low opinion on Grammar-snobs (not saying you are one, butt being around enough of them can make people… snappy)

If that’s how it was meant to be read, then fine. I’m not above admitting when I make a mistake. But allow me to point three things out:

1. I wasn’t saying that to be snide, I just felt the comic’s makers made a small error and didn’t want it to distract people from the rest of the comic.

2. Flat text can sometimes be hard to predict the enunciation of compared to spoken word since you have to do half the work of figuring out how it’s being said yourself. And on top of that, this comic has a long history of spelling and grammar errors, both then and now, which made the possibility that someone made a boo-boo that much more plausible.

3. If I felt I had anything new to say about the story, I would, but I don’t, and I hate repeating myself in comments across multiple strips. So I’m waiting for something to happen that bears commenting on and when it does, I will.
