A three-panel comic strip. First panel, a male cartoon fox is stuttering his name as he introduced himself to a female fox. "Hi, my name is Franky Banky and I stutter. Sometimes I need a little extra time to say what I need to say."

Author’s commentary

Based on a true story! Well, sort of.

As I waited for the day to get my covid-19 vaccine, I thought how funny it would be if I pretended that the vaccine caused me to start stuttering as soon as I got the poke. Coincidentally, my friend and Tiktok star, Marc Winski, beat me to it. He did the exact same thing and posted it on Tiktok
