This cartoon came the way so many of mine do, reading the paper and jotting down stuff that catches my interest.
I ran across the phrase “lateral move” and, after a fair amount of coffee and staring out the window, I remembered that crabs walk sideways, and a cartoon was born.
This was also one of those times where I say to myself “Damn! That joke’s too good for me not to draw!” and I have to figure out how to draw something I haven’t before. I had to do a fair amount of crab research in Google images, but it was worth it.
