Hm. Probably not, a comma-separated clause would be for an alternate way of stating the same thing, and that's not what 'themselves' is. You can also just leave out 'themselves' entirely.

Also, I'm pretty sure that there is an "a" missing in the 3rd panel of 4/18/11, along with grammar and the mysteries of comma placement.

FTFY.

Okay guys, I'm going to try to make Poe run the dialogue past me before he posts comics from now on. Clearly it was working better back when I did the lettering, and I honestly don't care if it makes the comic late compared to it always running full of errors. He seriously doesn't even see these mistakes.

Believable enough; I've run into plenty of people who were completely unable to recognize spelling and grammar problems, though 'grammer' would have been picked up by any competent spell-check program.

I'm one of them. My spelling is horrid. Spell checkers help a good deal on those programs that have them, but some things (like graphics processors) won't catch the errors. I try, I really try, but frankly I need editors for most things.

In the Easter comic, I think "Oh Me fuck" might supposed to be "Oh fuck Me". I think.

Nope. It's "Oh Jesus Fuck" but with "Me" instead, since he IS Jesus.

In the first panel of Automated Cock-Blocker, I assume that "where's you go tonight" should be "where'd you go tonight".

More like: "does not paste well with mouse." Mouse-over for today's (5/30) is duped. Also, suspect it should be "call me veggie..." (left out the me).
