Publish or Perish


This is exactly the kind of reference based joke that either works, or dies a slow miserable death alone in a shallow pool of water.  Which fate do you think this one will suffer?  Yeah, we guessed shallow pool, as well.

And no, Dr. Klownus is supposed to look like a clown and not an elephant.  If you’re trying to read the joke that way you’re doing it wrong.

BEARD: The university is getting serious about that old saying publish or perish.
HOBO: What, seriously?

BEARD: Yeah, they've been going around all morning giving stern talks to those of us who haven't published in a while. It's rough. it's like our four hour work days are not enough for them. They're treating us like animals!

KLOWNUS: I am not an elephant! I am not an animal! I am a human being! I am a man!
