Of all the crude comments and jokes we had made before, getting censored for showing a little blood was a bit silly to us. Originally the third panel showed the students hitting the ground in a pool of blood. That original version was deemed too violent and gross. We were later accused by Provost Gary Brockway of using this strip to encourage students to jump off buildings. Our reply was if students killed themselves over our comic, the university had bigger problems than us.
The strip was to originally also contain a reference to Jackson Pollock (hence the blood splatter), but was taken out before even submitting it. We still showed the arm and leg from a dead student, just no blood.
