I bet I’m the only cartoonist in history to ever come up with the idea of having an overly-intelligent overly-verbose smartass kid as a primary character! It’s like Orson Scott Card meets Calvin and…
Well, whatever. Calvin and Hobbes never did a Humpty Dumpty / uterine wall joke. Probably.
Anyway, for those who wonder how I think of these things, this idea popped into my head while I was standing in the kitchen and absolutely nothing Humpty-Dumpty-related was going on. It originally ended on a different note, which my wife said wasn’t funny, so I rewrote it with the new punchline. She said it still isn’t funny, but I’m hoping this time she’s wrong, dammit.
