Is this a good place to mention spelling issues when a strip isn't up for transcription?

In the Nov 5 strip, the posers mentioned are actually poseurs, and the young one spells his name Criss Angel.

Both are in common usage. One of your links even says, "Etymology: French, literally, poser, from poser"

Poseur may be the more common usage, but the answers.com, m-w.com, and dictionary.com all have listings for 'poser' also, and it is listed as an alternative to poseur.

If I have to fix "Chris," I might as well fix "posers" at the same time, though. That's the sort of slang-ish word you rarely see in print and thus spelling becomes more assumed than learned, I guess.

Unfortunately, history has shown that by the time I get home from work, I totally forget to fix spelling or errors in past strips and rescan them. I'll do my mental best, however.

Thanks for the notice.
