Broom Hilda (3/10/09)


It took me a minute to realize that the dark object obscured by the squirrels in this strip was, in fact, a tree. At first, I thought it might be a beached octopus or a twisted hunk of metal, but neither of those options made sense. What’s unsettling about this tree, though, is the appearance it gives of having been uprooted and dragged across untold distances by an army of squirrels desperate to satisfy their hunger. If they were going to go to that much trouble, they should have looked for a vendor who was selling almonds or pistachios…or at the very least, honey roasted peanuts.
