Original Release Date: October 21, 2008
At least while I was abusing silhouettes in panel one, I had the good sense to include the MST3K characters in there.
The only flaw in Stu's plan is if people bothered to look at the program before the proceedings began. It sounds as though most of them did not, but you know there had to have been a few of them out there reading ahead. Being an introvert, that's what I would have been doing if I was there. When I wrote this, I did think about that and it did concern me a little bit, but I went ahead with it thinking it would be all right because the majority of the ball attendees wouldn't have checked their programs early, and the ones who did probably would have thought it was just a joke. Or, since Pratt has so many enemies, similar things may have been done to him in the past. Also, obviously Mike and Renee were unable to replace all of the original programs, since some of the guests aren't seeing what Stu is seeing.
All of that being said, I can't decide if it works or not. I feel like somebody would have blown the whistle. But hey, it's a comic.
