In my previous news post, I mentioned that I wanted to make an invention to turn my hot water on for a few seconds every hour. This is because Massachusetts state law requires apartment complexes to install these lame-ass energy efficient water heaters that let the water cool way down if there's been no hot water useage for a while.
So I mentioned in an offhand way that I might call it "The Fukumass". And I got a tremendous reader response telling me that it should be called the "Fukumass-O-MAT". Very well. I relent. It'll be the Fukumass-o-mat.
Also, I got a fair number of emails asking what the hell was going on with Andy's hair in the previous strip. His hair is wet, ok? And I'm a crappy artist. It didn't come across too well. Oh well.
