I know I've run a handful of strips that are in no way meant to be funny. This is probably the most solemn of the bunch, but I figured if I'm running an entire arc about the high holy days, I should explain for those of you who weren't raised Jewish what they are all about. Yom Kippur is my favorite. I like how it's a combination of a day for the dead and a day to cleanse one's soul of all the anger and bad memories that have accumulated over the past year. Maybe this is naive of me, but I think if it was a tradition adopted by all people there would be less violence, less wars and a general uptick in happiness the world over.
