Oh come on. You all knew Steve wouldn't die.

2014-08-30 Rerun commentary: The red mamba is a fictional snake I invented just for the comic, as a variant of the real black mamba. There are also green mambas, by the way (two types), and Jameson's mamba (which is also green).

I just did a Google search for "red mamba", expecting that perhaps there'd only be a handful of hits, with the most prominent being this comic. However I was surprised to find thousands of hits all referring to a basketball player by the name of Matt Bonner, who is apparently nicknamed the "red mamba".

After this comic, no doubt.
