I Forgot to Forget

Today’s comic is a playful reversal on the following gag:

I forgot to have children

It’s been used on a variety of merchandise over the years. And a lot of people have assumed I wrote it.

Nope. I wish I had.

I hope whomever did create it got fabulously rich—before the image got ripped off, re-drawn and re-used countless times. But, no—it wasn’t me.

However, I thought it was high time that I did my own version—with a bit of a twist, of course.

(Below is the original panel of comic art that I asked Diego Jourdan Pereira to redraw for today’s gag.)
