If you can believe it, “Sweetie-Monkey-Baby-Owl-Honey-Puppy” is a pet name I gave to my girlfriend.  The idea was to make up the most insipid term of endearment possible (without resorting to baby talk), and this six word WTF phrase was the first thing to roll off my tongue.  I don’t know what it means, and I’m not sure she does either, but that’s just the kind of beau I am.

In other news, another death in today’s comic!  I think my fetish for killing off characters goes back to Dick Tracy (which never had any shortage of sudden, gruesome deaths for both its heroes and villains).  Will this be the only death we’ll see in this story?  You all hate it when I do these teasers, don’cha?
