2012-09-21 Rerun commentary: Crikey! I figured it would be interesting to have a crossover story involving Steve and the Nigerian Finance Minister. It would allow Steve to travel to Africa and interact with some interesting wildlife. I had no idea where this story arc would go when I started it. The very idea just seemed utterly ridiculous at the time - so why the heck not?!

You'll also notice that this isn't yet the new set that would become Steve's home in the future. In fact, his desk is sitting in a spot that looks suspiciously similar to where the Nigerians are. This may have been some laziness in setting up the photos for this strip. And it's why I felt the need to indicate explicitly in the transcript that Steve is in fact "across the world in Australia".
