Update 6/30: I almost never do this, but I have edited the last line of dialogue in this strip since publishing it. Based on the response I’ve gotten, it seems nearly everyone thought the original version was a joke about telemarketers, when it was intended to be a joke about how Mom is badmouthing Lena to a completely random person. And when everyone misunderstands the joke, the problem isn’t with everyone – it’s with the joke. Apparently I failed to convey it properly, so hopefully this slight rewrite gets the point across. For anyone curious, the original version can be read here. So was this an improvement? You tell me.
