largo and i have been planning a bench strip. we'll let y'all know when we finish it. Basically, if largo dissapears from MT, you know it's because he died in a bench strip :P
"The Bench" is a now defunct project originally run by Penny Arcade. It was a collection of reader-submitted strips that traditionally involve Gabe, a squirrel, and a bench.
The joke was stolen from this Penny Arcade strip.
