Alright, this idea was mostly from my friend Ian, who I went to high school with and who helped make me who I am today.

Why did you make me a cartoonist, Ian? What the fuck were you thinking?

Ian has kids, so that could be part of the inspiration (kids are all real into letters) but he also wrote a song in high school and most of the lyrics were “Why isn’t Y a vowel?” and so he’s just got a thing for the letter Y.
