Exactly. This strip happened to come up today on the artist's "rapid-fire reruns with commentary", just after I had finished posting on this thread. Her commentary is:
Originally aired 12/08/03: I think this strip is probably among the top ten that were linked all over and grabbed people's attention. I wish I could say what I was thinking when I drew it, but honestly I have no idea other than I was frustrated in general and this seemed like a really funny outlet for the frustration. Plus Captain Planet parodies are fun. The few strips that come up as parody strips were usually triggered by some sort of random conversation with someone in my household, or just weird thoughts in my head. Regardless, this is still one of the most popular strips I've done.She has also penned some hilarious "Grammar Nazi" episodes (with the Grammar Nazi being the *good-guy*), but I can't post them here because they include (humorous) profanity.
