      These nature crossings allow wildlife to move over large roads and highways without any danger. They also allow us to track populations based on the frequency of crossings. The only problem is animals gotta teach other animals about the crossing and until they do they won’t use it.

          The last line of their comment explains it: “The only problem is animals gotta teach other animals about the crossing and until they do they won’t use it.” The comic is showing a deer being confused by the crossing and another deer teaching

              A comic does not need to be funny, this one is informative and trying to show the world from the animals perspective.

                It’s so not informative? I don’t need comics to be funny to enjoy them. I just don’t understand it. Still.

                  Best advice I can give is to read all the comments explaining, or do like me and accept that there are many reasons for some memes/jokes to pass us by.

                So the right CAN meme. This changes everything.

              I’d assume the joke is that deers don’t usually teach using a whiteboard? I don’t think it’s that funny either but there’s not much to get, it’s just a cute drawing.

                Ah okay ye that part for sure but it seems that all the rest should be significant, or we could have a one panel comic and enjoy that

                  You have my full blessing to go forth and create such a comic ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ

              I mean, I did. And I found it funny. But to each his own, you know?

            I think its more that the deer discovers the crossing, and then explains it to others.

      I think the humor is in thinking one deer was like “holy shit, I’ve got to tell the others” and then giving a formal presentation where the other deer are also like “holy shit”

      Its a green bridge like animal crossing to encourage wildlife to cross our infrastructure without getting run over.

      Its pretty sad and depressing when you drive for 2 hours and see at least 2 deer and 1 hedgehog roadkills, where it can be reduced by just not only thinking about ourselves.

      My read of this is: Deer and squirrels tend to run in front of moving cars*. The two species are distressed that something interrupted their ability to bolt into traffic.

      *Where I live, obnoxiously and assertively so. The mule deer almost wait for cars to approach, run into the road, and then just stand there. Traffic-blocking protests have nothing on the deer.

      My understanding: First deer discoveres a case when you can run over road unharmed. Teaches others, where they understand one can run safely over the road anywhere, thus the suprisement. Probably farfetched, but dank.

  • I think the joke is that the deer believes the earth rose up and intersected the road on its own.the charts show the wilderness and rhe road, and then the wilderness ‘breaking through’ the road.

    Feels like these are an ambush predators dream (still would rather all the deer get eaten in the circle of life than hit by cars of course)
