Sheep
I think it's the sheep zapping the cactus and not vice-versa
Title text: I think it's the sheep zapping the cactus and not vice-versa

[edit] Explanation

Original poem from "Scott" on Livejournal page:

I had a little cactus and I treasured it with pride,
admiring its spines and dainty flowers.
Until the day - oh tragic day! - when it was RAMIFIED,
by a ram with strange psychokinetic powers.
Baaing deep, this shaman sheep came whiffling through the brambles.
It gazed upon my cactus and, with yellow flash and thudrous crash,
with dashing, brash, and rash panache,
it blew the plant to shambles.
I was, I confess, horrified - I sat and cried my eyes out!
Oh stupid sheep, satanic sheep, so wrong and rash and willful!
I nursed the cactus best I could, till finally it came about.
It grows apace now, once again, but all it blooms is steel wool!
Oh God I need sleep!

[edit] Transcript

Another from my high-school notebooks.
[A sheep and a potted saguaro cactus linked by an arcing yellow electricity bolt, drawn on graph paper.]

[edit] Trivia

  • Original Randall quote: "I'm still on vacation, sorry this is a bit late. I forgot what day it was. Anyway, I'll be back Monday, possibly with new drawings about cereal!"
  • This is the thirty-seventh comic originally posted to livejournal. The previous was 41: Old Drawing. The next was 42: Geico.
