Illustration for Q-tip column


Was there originally another question answered in this column? I can’t figure out the right half of Slug’s drawing at all.

That doesn’t mean there wasn’t one in the original column.

Well, only his logic.

There IS logic. If you look at the question, it mentions “slugs:”

The illustration shows a baby with Q-Tips in his ears, a slug, and a geoduck, as in the slug column.

If you pour salt on slugs . . .
