I always enjoy when businesses double down on lowering standards. It’s rare that you see a company just lower customer service without also lowering product quality. This is another bad lesson colleges have learned from the business sector.

Memorial Day has taken on so many meanings over the years. It’s been both the kickoff of summer and the kickoff of the summer blockbusters. Still, we shouldn’t forget its original meaning. Thank those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
My youngest cat sits and watches birds for hours. I realized the other day that I cared more about her entertainment than actually feeding the birds. Does this make me a horrible person? Sure, but not this alone.
This is one of those strips where it isn’t always clear how to transition the audience from the first two panels to the punchline in the third. You just have to lay enough clues and hope the connection is clear.
In public service warning news, please don’t take this as advocation of violence against the postal service. They’re fine men and women. Mr. Mittens is just evil, being a cat and all.
There’s a saying that everyone wastes their money differently, and there’s a great deal of truth to it. What’s funny is how angry it makes some people how others choose to waste their money. I’m not a huge shoe shopper, but are fancy shoes any more silly than video games? I don’t think so, even though I love video games and can’t imagine spending too much on shoes (having something in alligator leather just doesn’t matter to me).
Now, spending money on fancy cupcakes? That’s stupid.
I’ve always figured if you take very educated young people and give them an insurmountable challenge (repaying student loans), someone would figure out a way around it–or at least a manner in which to exploit it.
Yes, the listed method here wouldn’t work. It’s a joke. Don’t try this stuff at home, kids.
I’ve attended several graduations, and this is unfortunately how most of them go. THis should not come as a surprise, seeing as how we don’t generally choose commencement speakers based on their oratory skills, but instead based off life achievement. This is sort of like choosing a relief pitcher based off who has the best hair.
There is something weird about people claiming something will undermine the sanctity of marriage when they themselves are on their third or fourth marriage. Surely anyone can have problems in a marriage, but it’s just that these people are usually the source of all the problems in their marriage.
I should note that this strip is purely fantasy. Everyone knows there is no real way to escape the friend zone.
No, this is not a strip bashing Lincoln for being gay. I have no idea if he was or not (there are apparently some historians who believe so, or at least making money peddling theories). The ultimate “friend zoning” would be this relationship, but is in no way encouraging violence against gay people. It’s a joke.
This disclaimer is placed here not to defend ourselves against gay people (they usually have a splendid sense of humor), but to keep intolerant idiots from reading too shallowly into it.
