Day 8 Cartoon [The Twelve Days of Christmas in June Giveaway]

The caption contest today is for a free copy of Dr. Explain. (Note: Originally, today’s scheduled prize was Screensteps rather than Dr. Explain, but I had to switch prizes around due to the fact that a previous winner already had Dr. Explain.) I hope you’re not getting tired of captions. We still have four more days.

Cartoon by Ben Minson. For full details about the giveaway, see this post.

    “…and then I told him
    ‘Yeah, all the screenshots have to change because the logo has been made-over. Ships tomorrow.’
    Oh man, you shoulda sen his face. I got him good.”

    “Wel, where is he now?”
