Pop Culture Classes


The concept for this strip doesn’t stray too far from reality.  Many colleges and universities are cancelling traditional literature courses in favor of these types of “pop culture” courses  The argument is to give students what they want, but if that were the case wouldn’t we give them a free degree with a box of doughnuts?  Mmm, doughnuts.

There’s an animosity between President Czar and the faculty that borders on the absurd.  How long has he had this comeback planned?  Surely he has been waiting for someone to complain just for the chance to deliver it.  That sounds about right for most management types.

BEARD: You've got to do something about this registrar. He's cancelling all of our literature courses and replacing them with classes focused on pop culture.

CZAR: I fail to see the problem. Students today are far less interested in Jane Eyre than J.K. Rowling.

BEARD: Yes, while on that note, he has renamed the College of Arts and Sciences simply Gryffindor.
CZAR: Slytherin is going to crush you in intramural Quidditch!
