Island (sketch)
Hello, island
Title text: Hello, island

[edit] Explanation

The early comics sometimes do not present a particular point, but are just pictures drawn by Randall.

The title text words "Hello, island" could be a reference to the popular programming print statement "Hello, world". The first thing you learn in programming is to make a program that prints out this text.

[edit] Transcript

It looks a bit like Saba, in the Caribbean. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

It's a hippo

I think the bumps on the top of the peak make a look like a hippopotamus-shaped island. 19:48, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
