Old Drawing
I don't want to talk about it
Title text: I don't want to talk about it

Explanation

This comic plays off the pun between stump, to confuse someone, and a stump, which is the remnants of a tree that has been cut down.

Transcript

[A tree holding a chainsaw over a recently cut-down tree.]
I found this in one of my high-school notebooks. I think I drew it just to take revenge on people snooping through my stuff.
Cut-down tree: WELL, YOU STUMPED ME...

Discussion

I used to frighten people going through my stuff with occasional pictures of Cthulhu standing on a pentagram with the norse runes for "all hail the destroyer of souls" around it, just to make their day a little weirder. -- Gigahertz (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Why is the pun so terribly punishing? (no pun intended) Benjaminikuta (talk) 07:31, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
