Many of our comics feature unnamed characters, which typically have been mushrooms, carrots, or onions. We owe our astute readers an honest, straightforward explanation for this:
Our crisper drawer only has so much room.
Onions are typical social justice warriors. If you believe we are saying they have hidden layers of complexity, and add a certain spice that the typical comic strip villain lacks, then good for you!
Carrots are mostly neutral, non-participants. They may or may not be the subject of the joke.
Mushrooms are fungis. And fungals. They act as cheerleaders for our heroes. If you can find a deeply symbolic meaning in this characterization, be sure to let us know.
