194: Different Traditions


One of the comments I got on my comic was that for a strip with over 50% of the cast being Jewish there wasn't a whole lot of mention or humor on the subject. This inspired me to add a high holy days story arc. It also had the added benefit of finally giving me an angle to add depth to Sol's character. He makes a good vehicle for ferret jokes, but I hadn't found a way to give him more depth as his model is pretty hard to parody. However the idea of turning the ancestor respect portion of the culture on its head to be devoutly disrespectful was something I could really run with. I admit this strip particularly tickles me.
