We’re the first to admit this probably isn’t one of our best strips. Usually, one of our strips fail, it is because we have spent far too much time rewriting it over and over again and in the process kill the joke by trying to get the wording exact. This one was the opposite. We basically had no rewrites. It still makes us laugh, but there is an inside joke there.
This was the third appearance for the female professor character. She was originally created for the Valentine’s Day strip, brought back once more for the staff meeting, but we weren’t sure if we’d really use her much. She appeared in the next week’s strip and became an essential character.
