This was a weekly comic strip that chronicled the adventures of Horatio Algiers, and friends, as they battled the insanity of the Amalgamated Regions Postal Service. It is now retired!

The Flu

Last night I fever dreamed that my flu symptoms were U-shaped. What does that even mean? I couldn't tell you. Somewhere in my overheated brain meats it made sense, and so for 12 straight hours of fitful sleep I traced these U's in my mind. I don't know why fever dreams are so monotonous. It's like being stuck on the same scene in a dvd, which is played over and over. And not just any scene. I'm talking Pod Racing ala Star Wars Episode 1, or highlights from Water World.

Anyway, I just had a coughing fit and almost passed out. Horatio Algiers is postponed until Friday. If I'm not able to get to it I'll be sure to update you! I profusely apologize. Feel free to read past strips over again. It's rerun time.

Hey how come it was U's you dreamed about. Is there a message in that. Why not "w's" or "z's".. . if it were "z's" would that be you dreaming or just you snoring. . . LOL
