    Carrot Top

    Yeah, his carrot nose is on his head.

    Bill Hicks?

    I was thinking Unicorn, but Carrot Top does work better.

    Ditto!

    However … In the scene before this one, how did he signal “comedian”? Is there a standard indicator, as there is for “book” or “movie”?

  7. Mark Jan 11th 2013 at 09:01 am 7

    See, I thought he was desperately trying to signal that he needed help replacing his nose, which had somehow become misplaced, but the others thought he was just playing charades. But yeah, Carrot Top.

    I think I get the Geezer tag today, because I was thinking Dan Ackroyd (”Conehead” from early Saturday Night Live). Carrot Top is obviously more correct.

    Meps!

    I have heard the name Carrot Top, but I’ve never seen him on anything and I’ve never heard anyone refer to him except in derision. I wouldn’t have gotten this one.

    Elyrest, count yourself lucky!

    Is he trying to say he’s the Comedian, Jasper Carrot? It’s not very clear what identifying the charade-snowman is actually trying to portray, but given the commentary of the other snowman participant, Jasper Carrot seems to be the object of this toon.

  13. Detcord Jan 11th 2013 at 02:10 pm 13

    Um, replace “identifying” with “character”. :) Bit too much “editing” and not enough “correcting”.

  14. mitch4 Jan 11th 2013 at 02:23 pm 14

    sorry, Detcord, you may just not be aware that there is a [pretty well-known] comedian who performs under the name “Carrot Top”. That’s a jokey nickname for anyone with red hair, but this performer has gone another step and adopted it as his stage name.

  15. Wendy Jan 11th 2013 at 02:53 pm 15

    I sure didn’t get it. I was trying to work off of “dunce” as the carrot looked like a dunce cap to me.

  16. padraig Jan 11th 2013 at 04:41 pm 16

    I thought he meant “The Coneheads.”

  17. fj Jan 11th 2013 at 05:34 pm 17

    I got the “Carrot Top” reference right away, but assumed the big joke here is not that snowman is lousy at charades, but rather that Carrot Top is a lousy comedian.

  18. Woodrowfan Jan 11th 2013 at 05:43 pm 18

    Carrot Top. And the cartoon, lame as it is, is still funnier than the real Carrot Top..

  19. Singapore Bill Jan 11th 2013 at 11:16 pm 19

    The reason you didn’t get it is because he said “comedian.” You were trying to think of people who are funny. You will never get to Carrot Top if you do that.

  20. James Pollock Jan 12th 2013 at 01:18 am 20

    I think the really funny part is that “Wendy” didn’t know who Carrot Top is, when he’s been a spokesman for Wendy’s in several commercials.

    Thanks for the clarification. I’ve never hear of a performer called ,”Carrot Top”, and from subsequent comments, I think I am better off not knowing.

  22. Powers Jan 12th 2013 at 10:39 am 22

    Geez, he’s not that bad folks.

    @Powers - On the internet, no one knows you’re Carrot Top. ;-)

  24. Daniel J. Drazen Jan 14th 2013 at 11:13 am 24

    I was going to guess either Rarity or Twilight Sparkle.

    Donald Trump

    I also thought coneheads, only remembering the characters and not remembering who were the coneheads.

    I am surprised at the disdain for Carrot Top. I know who he is, but I’ve never seen his act. I can’t imagine he’s as bad as everyone here is portraying him as.

    Then again, there’s always things that are popular that shouldn’t be. Almost any rap “artist”, to name a genre.
