Greetings!  So, I’ve been battling gout the last few days…  I know what you’re thinking… Gout tends to be a foot thing, so why didn’t I draw the bloody comic?!?!

Well, you are correct.  The gout is in my foot.  However, it’s the worst flare-up I’ve ever had… and… well… ouch…

So, try as I might, I couldn’t concentrate enough to get through the strip.  I accept your derision.  The meds finally seem to be kicking in, so I can sort of bend my toe now, so we should be back to normal on Sunday.  My apologies.

If you’d like an idea of what gout is like, please check this poorly drawn (and even more poorly written) blog entry I wrote a few years ago…
