To Jameson Sparks, the man who droned on and on about how Planetside was "going to be the best game evar." Happy Birthday!

The Script For Today's Comic!
(Branch is talking to Tom, which is to say that she's talking to him while he sits motionless. This probably is at the coffee shop. Her word balloons should be in smaller text and intrusive, almost poking Tom off of his chair.)
BRANCH: "so I watched farscape the other day and then i realized it had been months since i read my books so i picked up all of them and you know house of cards is really the best but im still missing dark side of the sun"
BRANCH: "which is funny because it was the first out but theres a continuity discrepancy in season three and cards where critchon says that he was an astronaut but really there was no nasa in the farscape it was asa"
BRANCH: "then my kitty jumped up on me shes named aeryn and some day ill get a tawny called crichton but he has to have that blocky face you know and they have to fall in love"
TOM (small): "Shut up."
TOM (leaping out of his chair): "SHUT UP! For GOD'S SAKE, do you EVER STOP TALKING?"
TOM: "I've NEVER WATCHED FARSCAPE! You KNOW this? Why do you insist on talking as if everyone knows the most intimate details of the things that interest you?"
(Silence. Branch is obviously upset, in that Branch-like way, but doesn't know what to say. Tom picks up a book, reading it with the utmost content.)
(Karla comes over to put a hand on Branch's shoulder and looks at Tom angrily, who is oblivious.)
(Karla glares at Tom with such force that he notices, looking as if he shouldn't have to but not daring to contradict his wife.)
TOM: "….I'm sorry, Branch."
(Branch looks up hopefully)
(Back to normal)
BRANCH: "and when you look at the peacekeeper DVD you totally wont believe what happened to dargo…."
TOM (thinking, obviously disgusted): "The problem with being nice to nerds is that they take silence for adoration."
