Okay, first of all, let me take a second to remind everyone that yes, there WAS a new page yesterday. It went up waaaaaaay late, so you might have missed it, but it's there. I promise!

And speaking of which, I THINK there's going to be a new Voting Incentive by the time you read this, but I'm not sure. After that whole ordeal yesterday, I really, REALLY wanted to go ahead and make sure this page would be up at midnight, so I haven't even started drawing it yet. There WILL be one, but if it's not up when you read this, just check again in a few hours.

Oh, and just in case you're confused by Layla's proclamation, we WILL still have pages tomorrow and Sunday. I'm not letting myself off the hook THAT easily...

...the last 2 pages will be "Their" Christmas Party, aren't they. Well, I feel that works.

Oh, and, I believe that the incentive is up. I haven't seen the one which says Alphonse should feel honoured before, anyway.

So, is that just foot cleaner from the sad puppy brand? I could also see it being foot cleaner specifically for sad puppies, which would imply that markets have become even more niche, and Ram then tries to sell the very specifically targeted products to anyone he can force to listen to him. Of course, he'll try to sell anything he gets his hands on, but I think ridiculously niche would be a fitting label for most of the stuff we've seen him advertising.

I imagined it as the brand name, as a means of guilting consumers out of buying anything else, but now that you mention it, it WOULD be interesting if they did, in fact, have a dog version. Then, if anyone tried to call the company out on such manipulative branding, they could point to the doggy product, insist the name was completely innocent, and claim that everything else with the "Sad Puppy" name was just to maintain brand consistency.

^ That requires more competency than Ram has. Thus, I suspect that's why Ram doesn't sell them anymore. He was bought out of the brand by a larger company which wanted to do just that.

As actually happens with some real world products, the original product actually matched the name, sold really well, so they branched out into somewhat related products to take advantage of the brand, which also sold well, and then branched out into dozens of products completely unrelated to the original in any way. I suspect Ram was just a sales agent for the company, probably as part of some multi-level marketing scam, as he would be rich and retired if he had thought of this. Although...it is also plausible that the big company bought him out for a trillion space-bucks, and he blew it all investing in a new company that makes underwear made from recycled fast food with famous religious figures on it. The underwear company had a huge contract with some mega-space-station but for some reason they backed out at the last minute and the company went under.

In totally unrelated matter: Where can I get some of that product? I feel really bad for not having any already.... :(

Layla seems even grumpier than normal - it is because she was interrupted in the middle of her stomping-off tirade by the Christmas special? Or she's worried about what Tabitha might be doing to Trigger while she's gone? :o
(yes, I know this isn't really canonical and no time is actually passing)
