"J'accuse!" Must have been a French bulldog.
Ooh la la! Vive les flashbacks -- in every sense!
I figure Zonk has to be around 60 by now, so he's starting a new business five years shy of when most people retire. An admirable thing for us late-term entrepreneurs.
J'accuse? Perhaps they were in Louisiana.
Kudos time again. I always check Doonesbury and Daily Kos Comics and XKCD and some others first thing in the morning. (Snark is better than coffee!) So imagine my surprise when I get to dKos and see Doonesbury's Mark on the radio as the lead-in to a cartoon video called Cartoonists Demand Action On Guns, right above Tom Tomorrow. I had to check that I was on the right page.
Zonker saying degrees are good? Oh my...the room's spinning.
I'm actually one small research project short of a degree. Popsicle sticks and glitter you say? It could work, just throw in a data logger.
Recently I've been sad to read that Zipper is giving up on his tenured student status, but I was heartened to read he might manage to graduate after all. If he finishes his bachelor's degree, I think he should consider graduate school. His experience spending over a decade obtaining a degree could serve him well as a PhD student.
This site is excellent and so is how the subject matter was explained. I also like some of the comments too. Looking forward to your next post.
Zonk should be aware that the climate around Boulder has early killing frosts. I hope he does not set a poor example by becoming an indoor grower. A greenhouse would be perfect!
There's so much completion going on. What's happening, doesn't Walden have a life-long learning faculty? You're making me scared of what's coming next.
At some point, surely Rick is going to stumble across The Big Story. Perhaps he'll hit the road a la Steinbeck and write Travels with Zipper.
Oh gawd: those four in one car bound for Boulder? Sheer madness. Please! On the Road for the present age of insanity...
If his fantasy life includes The Death of Marat, Jeff must have been awake and paying attention at some point during his time at Walden.
I am a retired world history teacher. Thanks for the very well done reference to The Death of Marat in today's strip. It really made me feel good.
Whoa, man. The Death of Marat image is harsh. Did Raz do that to himself?
I love the civilized jab at social media today. And I laughed out loud at the nod to Marat in his bathtub. Perfecto!
