That's not true! I love all North American venomous lizards! All two of them, the Mexican Bearded Lizard included!
Now, let us have a conversation based entirely on us having read the same two wikipedia pages.

Is the image on this strip broken? I only see the first 100 or so pixels vertically from the top, then nothing but white space.

That's how the strip is supposed to look. Don't you get the joke? It's an invisible foe. When you look for the rest of the comic you find emptiness. I shouldn't have to spell this out for you.

It's happening on the comic before that, too, even though it had previously been displaying the whole thing. I'm not sure what the problem is, but I'm glad I'm not the only person experiencing it... I was already wracking my brain trying to figure out what could be wrong with my computer.

Did anyone else notice that this strip seems very ripped-off from DFW's "The Broom of the System"? The premise (of someone trying to take up all of the space in the universe via gluttony) and some of the wordings appear to be exactly the same

Ah, the webcomic ecosystem, first a humble artist draws a joke, Zach Weiner reads it and some time later draws a comic very similar to it.

Weeks later he forgets he did that comic and then draws that same comic again. And then two days later Randall Munroe does a comic with the same premise, but very poorly worded and with not enough effort put into the art to even make the heads connect to the bodies.

It's the circle of life.
It, if you will, rules us all.

You've cried enough this lifetime, my beloved polar bear
Tears to fill a sea to drown a beacon
To start anew all over, remove those scars from your arms
To start anew all over more enlightened
Two more yeeeears
