Haha, ok, the alt text joke this time is probably the best laugh I've had at the alt texts in a while.

Their chief weapon is surprise. And fear. Fear and surprise. Two, their two main weapons are surprise and fear. And ruthless inefficiency. Three! Their three main weapons are surprise, fear, ruthless inefficiency, and an almost fanatical devotion to freezebags.

Artists who 'hide' bodyparts need to have a good reason for hiding them or it just looks lazy. He's not at any real angle in which his tail should be viably hidden.
I assume that the 'hidden' comment was a joke. I think he genuinely did just forget it.

Fox and Bino have always been "best friends". When he was younger, Fox was probably more impressionable. Well considering the fact that Fido and Joey are both very pro-cat, and that in this strip Fox is bossing Bino around, perhaps Bino is the impressionable one? Maybe without Fox's influence as pu...
