An aspect about how I write my comic that could, in no way, come through in the text is that sometimes music is playing in the background that I’m not acknowledging in the comic, and in this specific page the song being referenced in the third panel is being referenced because Flip is playing it 100 feet away in the party tent. It would be a running gag if this were a cartoon (a very expensive one that I would have to cut, more than likely) but since this is one of the few situations where it’s funny on it’s own, I left it. Plus I get to have another example of Dexter hating referential humor.
