Nicole says: “Hey Bill, I get the basic concept of the cartoon, but why — Oh why did he pick a dog as the animal that the car is hybrid with. Wouldn’t a horse make better sense ??? Also — is it me — or does the car have three hind legs?”



  1. I think one of those extra “back legs” belongs to the guy listening to the guy talking.

  2. Maybe he chose a dog since dogs seem to run fast and forever when they are chasing cars…

  3. More to the point, gallons of what? Or does the G stand for something else with dog/cars?

  4. I was thinking M.P.G. stood for “Miles per guzzle”. That makes a lot more sense. I’ve seen dogs run very fast, very far, then stop for a large guzzle (or gulp, I guess) of water. Then they’re good to go again!

  5. I think the cartoonist’s free association started with “mixed breed” and ended with “hybrid”. Then he forgot we’re not inside his head and put “hybrid” in the cartoon.

  6. Ah, that’s it: hybrid, half-dog, half-car.
