Hahahaha! You never really fail to make us laugh! I love carrots, by the way.

Scott is very persuasive and makes me want to "try the carrot".

Cantaloupe Defeatism is a conception of Vladimir Fructose, a Bulgarian Cantaloupe, during the 30 Minutes War. Based on an ideology of fiber struggle, Fructose contended fruits could not gain in a vegetable war. Fructose declared true enemy of nutrition to be the Lettuce Leaders who sent the sweeter classes into battle.

What's with all this *random combination of words* "would make a great band name" malarkey? I can't think of too many successful bands that have retarded random names. Most bands are named after the musicians, some literary reference, a reference to a life event, or as a tribute to other music & musicians.

What about a banana?

Marco... not to be pedantic back at you.... but Scott's use of the "carrot/stick" analogy is in my opinion, right on the mark. Just because he is suggesting the carrot is a "reward" does not mean that Jenkins would EVER get the reward, for just like with the donkey, Mullet Boss could simply dangle a *potential* reward in front of Jenkins to encourage him to do Mullet Boss' bidding.

"Feel free to jump in if I'm wrong Scott." - Sarcasmo

Ha! I think Scott would like for his readership to start spamming the comments with non-canon expository, the wildest of speculation, incrimination, and invective. Feel free to jump in if I'm wrong Scott.

SURREAL COMEDY IS THE BEST! Please don't follow up on the cantaloupe theme. Explaining a joke ruins it. Leave their minds inside out!!! :D

Scott, this was pure gold in every single panel. I was laughing so hard I couldn't breathe. I absolutely abhor carrots, so it was especially funny for me. Thanks!

I really want to read the next 4 panels, see the boss and Jenkins scrapping over cantaloupes! :)
