Strip by: Andrew Bird

{Line up of bald characters: Shrek, Roy Greenhilt, Homer Simpson, and Oliver.}
Oliver: {to Delkin} *sigh* Fine, gimme the damn scar.
Delkin: {grinning, with knife} This won't hurt a bit.

The author writes:

A slightly meta-humour strip about Oliver's so-called "distinguishing feature". This feature was originally slated to be complete baldness. This generated a bit of argument, mainly around the fact that "bald" is not a feature so much as the absence of one, and being bald really isn't that distinguishing these days. So, with absolutely no regard for Oliver's feelings, his feature became a disfiguring L-shaped scar. Poor Oliver!
