Even though this is another of the more dialogue-heavy BOTD strips, I think that it works better both conceptually and humour-wise than the previous 'Gene gets a nasty surprise' comic from last Tuesday. Not only is the Beware-of-the-dog element only a tangential part of the scenario, serving as part of the punchline rather than the entire point of the thing, but I actually wrote the dialogue as to point (at first) in an entirely different direction - the mailman is listening to a weird recorded message, and the fact that it comes from a dog? You don't even know it until the final panel. Absurd, but pretty clever all the same. Sometimes, it's just better to deviate from the established 'formula' to get a joke to work....
