Shipping delays make superheroes cry
"There, there Superman. Tell your friend Wonder Woman what's bothering you."
"It's just-- it's just that today's Wednesday, the day new comic books usually come out and I get to spend time with all my fans. And this week, there are no new comics today. Sniff!"
"It's okay, Superman, it's okay. It's just for the holiday. The people who work in the warehouses that store the comics and the shipping companies that get comics to shops every week deserve a day off to spend Christmas with their families too, right? And besides, it's only one day. There will be new comics on Thursday, just like on all the other holiday weeks throughout the year..."
"No! Not this time. This week, new comics don't come out until Friday! Sob!"
"R-really? A two-day delay? W-well at least it's only this one week, right? Right?"
