The idea behind this comic comes from a story my father told me. When he was young, he and my grandfather were driving along some highway, and they noticed a train moving along parallel to them. My father noticed that they were traveling faster than the train, and he bet my grandfather that they would beat the train to the next town. My grandfather, who happened to be the one driving the car at the time, took the bet, then pulled the car over to the side of the road and waited until the train reached the next town, winning the bet. The lesson? Don't bet with someone in total control of the situation.

And in the comic, who's in more control that the Author? Wanting to drag out the suspense concerning the identity of the imposters for as long as possible, I love the idea that he's willing to go so far as to blank out an entire panel. Of course, when going back through the archives, this joke loses some of its impact, since we already know who the imposters are. But I think it's still pretty clever.
