So yes, my post yesterday was my Down the Rabbit Hole entry. I wondered, "What's the craziest, silliest, most Bizzarro-World thing I can think of, that still has just enough tinge of reality in it that it MIGHT happen in an alternate universe?" Aha, I thought, make Two Lumps a treasure hunt/conspiracy theory! That's perfect! Everyone who knows about Rabbit Hole Day will laugh like crazy, and everyone who doesn't will roll their eyes and assume I'm just being weird. Excellent!
I'd like to say, that snowballed ALL out of expectation. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time at some of the fake "solutions" people added. You guys are brilliant. I also didn't expect anyone to actually believe me (especially since I tried to write in a much more caustic, not-me tone). I spent a bit of yesterday emailing people who were starting to take off running with it, because while the concept of the idea being believable was delightful, I felt it would be mean to let anyone go on thinking it was true and wasting time trying to "solve" it. This morning, I realized that more people may have done so after I went to bed, not to mention there are probably some who did who didn't comment, so I don't know about them. So, just to clarify: there is no Two Lumps puzzle. It is actually just a strip about sardonic, if cute, cats. And I wouldn't really rant and rail and call friends & fans stupid. ;)
So, back to reality! And thank you, you brilliant and creative people, who made that a lot more fun than expected. *waves and grins*
