Stripcreator In-Joke FAQ
Like any web community, Stripcreator has its share of in-jokes and one-note characters. If you find yourself scratching your head as to why everyone around you here finds a joke funny and you don't, either a) you aren't taking the right drugs or b) it's an in-joke.
In order to reduce your confusion, here are some of the in-jokes you are most likely to encounter.

Damned if I know.
Dr. Pedantic likes to correct people.

...Trot and Cap'n Bill were free from anxiety and care. Button-Bright never worried about anything. The Scarecrow, not being able to sleep, looked out of the window and tried to count the stars.
