Okay, you’re right, this is another pun. And I claim not to like puns but they seem to pop up a lot in my cartoons. Hmm. I guess what I mean is that I don’t like obvious puns. Because of the visual of a Tricerotops with bushy red hair, this one steps out of the dark, groaning place and into a sunny place full of rainbows and unicorns that makes me smile.
If there is a reader of this blog who does not get this joke because you have not heard of the comedian known as “Carrot Top,” stop reading now. You are a rare breed and need to be preserved. For the rest of you, let’s talk root vegetables.
Though I do love carrots, I can’t say I’m a big fan of Carrot Top the comedian. His jokes are all about visual puns and gadgets, very much from the Gallagher School of Comedy, and even though many are clever and some even make me laugh, it just isn’t my favorite kind of humor. And in recent years he has gotten wacked out on steroids or something and has become visually frightening. When you add this “look” to his kooky/corny brand of humor, you’ve really got a wierd combo.
I can’t fault the guy’s business acumen, of course, he’s crying all the way to the bank.
