Dinosaur puns

From Chris Waigl, this Sticky Comics as a birthday gift:

Punning phrasal overlap portmanteaus (well, the second is a bit more complicated).

Give it a try, triceratops. I love school, woolly mammoth. Say please, plesiosaur. With appropriate graphics.

About the strip, from the cartoonist (who draws on all sorts of paper, especially sticky notes):

Sticky Comics is my (mostly) humorous bunch of random drawings, scrawlings, and comics.

My name is Christiann MacAuley. I write and draw everything on this site. I have a pretty wide bunch of far flung interests and hobbies, from studying German and history to writing novels to technology to outdoorsy stuff and more. I live near Washington, DC and am an avid party animal when I’m not just alone being silly. Cartooning makes me laugh, which is one of my favorite things to do ever.
