* This cartoon came about when the site was still on Yahoo's server.  The site's popularity drove the bandwidth well into the [[Wikipedia:Terabyte|terabytes]] (most toons are around half to almost a megabyte), which Yahoo overlooked for a time only because they were all fans.  They finally had to shut it down because of the intense server consumption, hence the origins of the toon.
