I have no idea why they're celebrating American Independence Day in a distant future where nobody even mentions Earth anymore, but who cares? FIREWORKS!

So, yeah, special holiday thing today. But don't worry, I've already got the next "real" page mostly finished, so getting an extra update for Saturday should be no problem. SO be sure to drop by again for that!

In the meantime, if you really need SOMETHING that advanced SOME kind of plot today, you can always enjoy a new Voting Incentive!

@ Voting Incentive: Layla has a sentimental side! Aww.

@ Comic: As an Australian, I'm going to say that they don't celebrate the Americian Holiday. It's just that a few of the holidays carried over into space for one reason or another. "Independance Day" is one of those (like Xmas). "Independance Day" was origionally kept mostly due to it's rebranding from "Americian Independance Day" into "Personal Independance Day", a day to celebrate many things (having your personal freedoms, the fact that you've moved out of your parent's house, the fact that your kid's finally left home at the young age of 50, etc).

Of course, I'd find it ammusing if some planets managed to turn "Independance Day" into what is, in reality, "Slavery Day", a day when you are even MORE enslaved to the system than usual.

Also, this is all conjuncture, I have NO IDEA if any of this fits into your universe, and think that, if "Slavery Day" actually ended up in the direct storyline, I'd be worried. YAY FOR CONTRADICTING MYSELF!

That, or maybe they just have a "Fireworks Day" or something. In fact, given the way ACTUAL holidays tend to get homogenized down to generic "and now we party for a day" celebrations, that's probably not very unrealistic.

(What IS unrealistic is the suggestion that humanity could spread out so far across space and still share ANY of the common cultural holidays we see in this comic. But that's Rule of Funny for ya)
