Quoting Elaine May, quoted in Seriously Funny: The Rebel Comedians of the 1950s and 1960s, “If you say black, I’ve gotta say white. There are only a few ways of making things happen–conflict is one, seduction is another.” I’ve focused a lot on conflict for humor, but I’ve had relatively few seduction gags. Looking at that idea more closely led me to this strip.
