“Yes, a little one” is definitely an allusion to the Crunchy Frog sketch from Monty Python. It’s such a perfect, dry, British line that I had to use it as the spine here.
I was seriously contemplating a very bad rule break, because of how easy it would have been to make these little characters gesture and change positions. I am glad I didn’t, but the evil thought was there. I won’t be able to resist it forever.
No idea if any Egyptian pharaohs died in infancy. Could probably look it up, but eh.
Note: this strip contained a spelling error. “Pharaoh” was originally spelled “Pharoah.” This was caught by a Dutch reader, for whom English is a second language. Shame on me and the rest of us native readers.
