This comic was the first to appear after the culmination of the ‘Red Weed’ site event.
It would have been the Christmas 2006 comic, however delays caused by hard drive failure meant this was not to be.
It is a storyline comic though, and brings back together Sonic and Knuckles as friends through using humour to ‘one up’ themselves.
The dialogue for this was inadvertently written Christmas 2005 in a messenger convo between Dreadknux and AAUK. (AAUK is Knuckles’s speech mostly.) However a lot of what Dreadknux said had to be changed to a less ‘adult’ feel.
Originally, Sonic mentions crack cocaine not absinthe.
Sonic’s talk about Jamaica was actually written by AAUK as a continuation of what was ‘said’ in the frame previously.
The reindeer of loose morals were referred to much more bluntly by Mr Joscelyne.
The remarks about Kenya in the disclaimer refers to the Weebl animation Kenya which advertises the ‘benefits’ of the country. “Got lions and tigers only in Kenya.”
The following remark about bears is a Wizard of Oz reference.
TV comedy group The Goodies advertised their fictional help bureau as doing ‘Anything, Anytime, Anywhere’ with the end words of the disclaimer being a parody of the audio bumper used on the show. “Goodies! Goody goody, yum yum.”
