I recently got two emails about this cartoon.
Here’s the first:
Dear Sir, I dont understand this joke. Please explain it to me.
And the second:
Today’s cartoon, “This, my fellow poets, is the enemy,” LOVED IT!
Obviously I like the second email better, but, honestly, I sorta knew this’d be obscure when I did it.
Here’s the thing, first writer: nothing rhymes with “orange.”
Seriously. Go ahead and try it.
So the joke is that a group of poets (folks who rhyme a lot of the time) would really hate that word.
Why do a cartoon that 99.9% of the population won’t get? That’s the great thing about being an independent cartoonist â€“ I can do whatever I think is funny.
And the .1% of people who get an oddball cartoon like this, generally think it’s really funny.

OK, whenever I post a cartoon on the Web that people have told me they do not understand, I get a flutter of emails from a number of people who (a) get it and (b) don't understand why anyone would not.
Brad – That's two words
Mike – That's 41 words.
This would be the wrong time to point out that there is a mountain near Abergavenny, Wales UK called 'the Blorenge' wouldn't it? (Google it if you don't believe me…)
Yes, I thought so.
Now I don't know how to feel…
Dave, contact Hilary Price about this!
Isn't there a comic strip called rhymes with orange?
How can people not get your cartoon?? It's kindof obvious to me… I laughed out loud (as opposed to the pitiful lol… no… no)
Hey there, RO! Yeah, I gotta stop using LOL. Is there anything else?
