I wrote a lot of strips before Spot the Frog. This was my second or third submission. I called it Moveable Feast, though I think of it as Karl the Carrot; a title format I would borrow later. Not to mention the tie and suspenders and mustache.
I'm not sure why I drew this. It's not a Sunday, it's not a daily. Worse, the joke has nothing to do with the characters. It's not about Karl, it's not about the other guy. It's barely about the joke.
