I wasn’t sure about the wisdom of tackling this clip.  I normally try to involve people or animals and stay away from inanimate objects.  I did do at least one strip where a plant was talking, but it could be read as just thinking out loud.

The other problem with this clip was that the tiny island with one or two palm trees is a stock comic strip cliché.  I almost leaned on that and turned it into my contribution for this year’s Web Comics Awareness Day, but this one kind of took off and I am pleased with it.  Here’s the bare bones alternative WCA Day script:

TREE 1: You know what we need?  A castaway.
TREE 2: Wrong cliche, man.  This is a webcomic.
BEAT PANEL
TREE 1: You know what we need?  An XBox.
TREE 2: I’d pwn j00.
