Carl’s Popularity Problem

Carl liked people. That wasn’t his problem.

Carl liked puppies. That wasn’t his problem, either.

Carl liked kittens, too. That also wasn’t his problem.

Carl liked people, puppies, and kittens -best of all- when they were cadavers. Yes, that was Carl’s problem.

    Please tell me he worked at the mortuary or at the very least was a stoker at the crematorium. 🤯

      Wherever he works, I’m sure his coworkers find him creepy.

    Brilliant, Chelsea. That is a problem, maybe not for Carl so much as for others.
