You know, I think I have to win more contests and start more contests about personal things. You guys sent me some real ego-strokes, and thanks for the sincere flattery. crabby was right that puns could easily be inserted into all those text boxes (e.g., comic 153322), and TheElPaso broke my record for shoehorning death into a comic. And what more can be said about maddog00's punchline, other than that if he had had a bit too much wine to drink before composing that, I'll be happy to let bygones be bygones, and forgive the vine.
But there were also some beautiful comics without the gross punnery. "Last Words" and "Meanwhile in Michigan" create unexpected explanations of the events in question. And don't you love the sentiment of "The disadvantage of being a spammer"? Read it again, and see how seamlessly it fits into the premise, while living out most every stripcreator's third wildest fantasy.
Still, I haven't mentioned this week's winning entry.
This, most simply, is a comic that caused me to blurt out a gust of laughter in response to a final panel that was most unexpected. Very well engineered. Let me post it for your enjoyment once again:

Congratulations, mmyers, I can't wait for CC 194: Love Lies Bleeding.
