Well, there you have it. The up-before-midnight streak is over. Still, I think I was able to keep it up a little longer than last year, right? I'm not sure, but it's gotta be close.

So, I'd wanted to have whole pages for all the other mad scientists, as well as the Principal Baby cast, but couldn't think of enough new material to justify it. So we combine things! Oh, and speaking of Principal Baby, I don't really keep up with upcoming movies, so I didn't know THIS was about to be a thing.

And finally, a new Voting Incentive, which I think is VERY necessary after yesterday.

...huh. I think this page just gave us information into how Ram stays "afloat", financially, I mean. He's paid/financed by TV/Movie/Other organisations to sell potential stock as "knock-offs" before they actually hit the market to see if there will be a negative backlash if an actual brand sells it. Which also explains his fearlessness in selling brands with fake endorsements or name drops of celebrities. He's actually on most of their payrolls.

I was going to complain that the comic wasn't heartwarming enough to make up for yesterday, but the voting incentive totally saved the day.
So, if Ram Quatzi starts selling mad science devices, will it be better or worse for his customers?

P.S. I'm registered on the forum now! Mostly to share a single theory, but I'm sure I'll eventually have more to say.
P.P.S. Bonus for anyone else besides me reading this on a device that doesn't support alt text. It was too big for a comment, so it's now on the forum:


Edit: Comment changed to hopefully not break page formatting.

@ dylgramac: He'd never get it to sell. Particularly because he wouldn't know what it is, and would probably activate it in a self-harming manner. Additionally, for some reason, I feel that Ram wouldn't actually buy Mad Scientist Creations to sell. Not out of care for anyone else, but simply because he knows he wouldn't be able to display them and/or would be hurt or otherwise attacked by them.

If he was given the Mad Scientists Creations, and they didn't immediately try to destroy him, all bets are off, however.

@vote incentive - That's much better! Partially makes up for yesterday, but then I started to think about what Pattie's current Christmas was like and got depressed again :(
She probably pulls an Ebeneezer Scrooge and works through Christmas to try to not think about it, and makes everyone else work too, because Bah Humbug! (If I recall correctly, it was the death of Scrooge's beloved sister that set him on the road to misanthropy and miserliness, so maybe next year we need to get some ghosts to visit Pattie for Christmas)

Regarding Ram Quatzi - I don't think he would be averse to marketing for the Mad Scientists since we first saw him trying to sell a dangerous Mad Science device whose function he had no clue of (but it was wonderful!!!) I'd probably stay away from the Christmas party, though. A room full of drunken mad scientists has got to be one of the more dangerous locations in the galaxy to be at. Ooops, I didn't mean to set off that doomsday device....

You know, I've actually wanted to do a Far Out There Christmas Carol for YEARS now, but there's no way I'd be able to cram the idea into just 25 pages.

@Blitz - sure you could! Every page would just have to have a dozen panels....
You can do it, we believe in you! ;)
