I’ve always wanted to make a comic strip of sorts. I used to do one, when I was eleven or twelve. It starred a stick figure with a winning blend of politics and bathroom humour. It was called ‘Toiletman’.
I have had the name ‘Pox Vop’ for almost as long. This morning, the Devil found my idle hands, and this happened. ‘Cross-pollination’ is a pun; you see, ‘poll’ used to mean ‘head’ or ‘haircut’. Very horrible, outdated pun.
