Introducing Rain Delay: goofy little gag comics to keep you entertained while I work on the legit stuff. Guest Delays are welcome. ^_^

Toaster on Fire: Origins
Because people seemed to really dig the concept of Toaster on Fire (and nothing personal beaus, but it IS Toaster on Fire by the way, NOT Flaming Toasters; that doesn't even make sense XD). The joke here is somewhat cliche, but it was kinda fun to do. Admittedly the setup really felt weird to me though. I mean, I never thought I'd draw "Vivian" again, or his ex-bandmates for that matter. And yet here we are. XD

Toaster on Fire: The Actual Story
Not sure what else to say that the comic didn't say, but yes, I really did do this and no, I don't know why.
Here's that PSA though for reference though -

Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.

I know and remember that PSA lol, I also recall people memeing it before that was a thing (mid 90's pre facebook,twitter,instagram,etc...)

Example: person a "this is a rock, and this is a rock on drugs"
Person b " what's wrong with it?"
Person a" it's stoned"
Both: "hahahahaha"

I apoligize for that terible pun but regret nothing ^_^

This isn't related to anything, just a random question, but is everyone at the school Catholic?

I mean, I know it's a Catholic school, but at least in my experience (Jewish, although I don't know whether or not my experience is representative of the larger Jewish community) It's really not that uncommon of a thing to go to Catholic school despite not being Catholic.

But anyways, just a random question I happened to think about.

I primarily write from my experience with this sort of thing (sometimes very unconsciously). I went to a Catholic school for a few years and not everyone was Catholic. I was incidentally, but the majority seemed to actually be other denominations of Christianity. There were exactly two Jewish kids (a brother and sister) at the time I went too.

So it's not outside the realm of possibility for there to be other denominations besides Catholicism in the school in the comic. I just admittedly haven't put a lot of active thought (read as: any thought) into the different faiths of the individual characters though. That being said, it's very plausible that some of the characters are not Catholic.

There is a big Catholic school back in my hometown that goes from K all the way to high school. The whole town is overwhelmingly Southern Baptist and the majority of the kids in the school are not Catholic. The parents who can afford send their kids there because the quality of education is vastly superior to the public schools. Kids who go there often are able to graduate at age 16 instead of 17-18. I know some who went there and graduated at 16, and graduated college at 18-20, including one girl who was in my college classes that graduated with a bachelor's degree in computer science at 18 and she is a Mormon.

I have a question! Why does the toaster have a little halo around it?

Not a halo, those are the levers you push down, and the line is part of the toaster

Discussing school made me wonder. How single mom can afford Gavin’s tuition? Is is mostly/entirely financed with child support her ex-husband is paying?

I don't really know the details, but I did have a friend in a similar living situation to Gavin at the time I went to Catholic school. Honestly, my family wasn't exactly the most well off either. I guess if you want your kid to go to this kind of school, you just find a way to make that money happen. XD

I also went to a catholic school and I know that if you can't pay the fee, they lowered it or you were even freed from it. It should not depend on the money if you want to go there.
The catholic church can be blamed for a lot of things, but as far as I have experienced, they do a good job on social stuff. Like homeless, disabled, immigrants... if they could only accept and help all oppressed minorities in that way...
