Considering I posted this at 6:30 in the morning while I was half-asleep, I'm surprised there was only one typo!

(double-checks to make sure the alt-text doesn't read "XXX")

I feel like there's a person missing there, what was his name? Smith, or something non-descript like that. I guess his work wasn't that memorable.

Barry's hiding inside the cake!
