Comic #4987

1 Terry: So you don’t care about the rocket itself failing to launch successfully?
2 Elon: I do, but I can just redefine 37 seconds of flight before catastrophic failure as “success”!
3 Terry: You can’t just change the meanings of words.
4 Elon: {into phone} Acquire Merriam-Webster! And Oxford University!

This is the problem with a comic lead time of several weeks. I wrote this soon after the SpaceX Starship orbital test flight on 20 April. One month ago as I write this, and a few more days now as this strip makes its way through the buffer to publication.

Hopefully someone remembers major space exploration events that happened a month ago!
