The Purſuit of Happineſs, Reviſited

It has come to my attention that ſome people are confuſed by my Purſuit of Happineſs cartoon, ſpecifically about the uſe of ſ (long s). Seems ſome people are under the miſapprehenſion that that's actually an f. Nope, it's an archaic form of lowercaſe s. You can read about it on Wikipedia if you like.
(Okay, I'ma stop using it in my text now.)

RULES FOR USING LONG S:

1. Lowercase only.
2. Never at the end of a word.

Thus, only the second s in "Success" may be long: Succeſs.
