Okay, so this one didn’t work out too well.
It’s NOT, as some over at gocomics are opining, that Hammy is really evil and wants to eat his friends. It’s just a lame gag about how RJ and Verne are the real chocolate covered nuts. The problem is there’s no bridge between the word “nuts” in the second panel and visual pun in the last panel.
We really are going to get on those roughs. Really. Honest.
