Two interesting backstories about today’s comic.

First off, the original dialogue for this comic was ENTIRELY different when I completed it. I wrote the script, drew it out, then posted it for my Patreon subscribers as a part of their weekly sneak peek. However a few hours later I realised that the original comic wasn’t working as a self contained joke. So I had to change it around into a new joke with the drawings already in place.

I went back to my notebook and scribbled out a few ideas and came across the comic you see now. It’s completely different, but I think it’s a better self-contained premise.

And in case you’re wondering what the original comic was… well that’s part of the beauty of being a Patreon Supporter. You sometimes get to see “alternate” versions of comic that never see the light of day on the website.

*Hint, hint* Supporting The Frumps on Patreon is AWESOME!)


Second thing about this comic is the anxiety some people experience with going to the bathroom. Some men have trouble using the urinals in a public restroom if there are other people in the room, which I can somewhat understand.

I once went out with a girl who could NOT use the bathroom if I was in her apartment. Maybe she was too self-conscious about it, but I’m willing to bet she was relieved every time I had to go out and run an errand.

So what about you guys? Do you sometimes find it hard to do one of nature’s most basic tasks?

And what’s this mystery comic that ended up on the cutting room floor? Is it worth considering Patreon to see some extra Frumpy goodies? 😀
