For a little extra dip on your chip, listen to the music above while reading this comic. It's the classic ragtime tune Frog Legs Rag released in 1906 that launched the career of ragtime composer James Scott.

Panel 1 - a black title card with Mel (an orange pentagon) and Sam's (a red circle) face, and white lettering. "When last we saw the History Shapes, Mel and Sam were exploring the ancient Aztec Empire."
Panel 2 - Mel runs toward Sam, who is holding an Aztec Calendar stone. "Sam, I just saw the temple. Guess what the Aztecs do to appease Huitzilopochtli the god of the sun?"
Panel 3 - Mel waves her knife. "They rip people's hearts out!"
Panel 4 - Sam ponders. "Well, I suppose it could be worse."
Panel 5 - A closeup on Sam. He's upset. "...they could date you for six months first..."
Panel 6 - Another black title card. "Make sure to join The History Shapes next time for the THRILLING CONCLUSION: Don't let the sun go down on me."
