's Zippy the Pinhead
strips, though Non-Sequitur Theatre

The text of a typical strip runs as follows:
What's the big fuss over the X-Files? It's just Scooby-Doo with real people.
Spackle the cracks in my heart, I'm ready for lovin' again!
Mercenary, missionary - same thing.
In the future, everybody will go to jail for 15 minutes.
Anything tastes good if you open your mouth wide enough.
BRAD: Me, a pessimist? I envy pessimists!
Concealed within each episode of Non-Sequitur Theatre is a special message hidden in the backgrounds and frame layout. Clearly I can't convey them in this abstracted transcription, but keep your eyes open for them.
