LOL... now this is funny in a sad way as that used to be what my computer room looked like in my old apartment. My collection had turned into a display of plastic totes.

That looks like my apartment circa NOW. Downsizing to a 1-bedroom apartment sucked.

Collected thoughts:

You're just not getting it!

A comment from the legendary ElvisTrooper on last Friday's comic demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding of the "Merry Maladies" concept. These strips aren't supposed to mock actual conditions that average collectors suffer from. They're supposed to invent ridiculous conditions that uber-dedicated collectors might suffer from! These would be collectors driven to the point that they'd have cuts up and down their finger from rifling through the pegs, or tendinitis from opening so many figure packages! So they're like tales of caution. "Stop doing that so much or you'll go blind" - that sort of thing. Hopefully that'll help some folks out there appreciate these more. Because damnit... I thought these'd be funny!

Or maybe I'm just a sick individual who derives pleasure from exploiting the suffering of others. Well... I am a Sith Lord...
