“Now, the technique that I’m using here is called ‘breaking the fourth wall’.
And, as you can see, I’m talking to you both A) in the comic itself, B) here in this very column, and C) in what I believe is called ‘the alternate text’.
If you don’t know what alternate text is, hover your mouse’s cursor over the comic. It’s even on those pedantic Chip and Walter strips.
Go on. Try it out.
And with this in mind, I hope Time Trouble itself will dominate my mind for some time to come. 😉
