In an attempt to brighten up what has been a week of unending darkness and fear, I offer this panel from Mar 23, 2007. Here Ziggy's expression is less crushing confusion than surprised embarrassment, and the people he deals with show a sense of humor and cheerfulness. And take a look at that Peppermint Patty doppelganger - I haven't seen such a sincere smile since the last time she showed up.

Actually, maybe Ziggy didn't even know that they made Sailor Moon underwear. Maybe there's a 14-year-old girl somewhere with a bag full of nothing but child-sized multicolored T-shirts. I mean, does this look like a guy who knows much about underwear?

Perhaps the expression on Ziggy's face is not embarrassment but a sudden realization. He's hard to read sometimes.
