    Wait, what did Mark and Drali do that kept me after class with them? I was framed!

    That last panel reminds me of one of my favorite stories from The Onion:


    • That was hilarious! I didn’t even know The Onion had been around that long. I think we should have sent Clinton in to get Noriega as well instead of using Anthrax…

      Well, you know what kind of a troublemaker Draliman is… but in school, you can’t just punish one, but everyone.

    This is too true to human nature. Loved it! 😆

    It’s amazing that anyone wants to teach little squirrels with the way mommy and daddy squirrels are today!

    • I know! I was in high school when the state offered an early retirement package to teachers of a certain number of years… and you would not believe how many jumped at that opportunity. My parents’ yearbook has more teachers I recognize in it than the yearbooks of my younger sisters!

  4. The Mom from Hell! There is one at every school function.

    I loved so many things about this, except PE…I’ve always hated that class. Hangman is awesome…cornholio…*snicker*if they did cornholio in PE, maybe I’d like the class better.

    • I’m one of the few social outcasts who actually loved PE. I was the picked last kid who could crush a softball, flawlessly catch any football thrown near me, and once even survived a seven on one situation in dodgeball to win. Not that any of those athletic feats raised my draft stock, mind you… but I didn’t care. I’d have probably rocked cornholio as well, but since I hinted to DJ I’d work coyote paintball into a comic, I wound up using that as the activity instead. Don’t worry, the coyotes can shoot back as well in my game…

  6. wow… amazing how fast we can change our minds! that’s REAL life!

  7. Ah, our current bi-polar educational system. If you could call it “educational.” If only it worked. I am SO glad I’m not in school anymore.

    From the old timer: In my day, sonny, my parents weren’t all that interested in what was going on. As long as report cards were okay, or mostly okay, school was my business. I never thought I’d be grateful for that, but in retrospect, it was just FINE.

  8. Yep, nailed it. I often wonder how these squirrels are going to turn out. My bet is they will be living at home with Mom and Dad forever.

    • Most of the younger folks I work with are in just that situation. And knowing they always have Mommy’s (or is some cases, Grandma’s) basement rent free for however long they wish pretty much shoots down any hope of them being motivated to actually work to keep their job. Oh, and a few of them even have their SO’s crashing with them at the parents’ place. I’d feel sorry for the parents if they didn’t raise their child to be completely nonindependent and coddled…

  9. Ally Bean says:

    You nailed it on this one. Helicopter parent hypocrisy is a bewildering thing to watch.

  10. draliman says:

    Yep, sounds about right.
    Wait, what did I do? What did I DO? I’m a good little boy :-(. And that small fire in science class was an accident.

  11. LOL! I am glad to see my goody four paws name wasn’t on the blackboard. I think maths is really exciting. Shane has chosen maths and science for senior high school. That gag was so right on target. I heard they don’t take out any chairs anymore for musical chairs so the lil kiddies don’t feel bad when they have to go out. Personally I think the sooner we learn to start dealing with rejection and the fact we aren’t going to be number 1 in all areas the better. Having said that I do believe everyone is good at something. Love your blackboard gags. remember pass the parcel game? it used to be the lucky winner got the prize. Now every kid gets a prize. 😀

  12. Mental Mama says:

    Nice to see you finally got it right. 😉

  13. Love the scribblings on the chalk board.

    Funny how we always called them “black boards” even when they were painted green…

    • I wonder why green chalkboards came into fashion anyway. White (or yellow) on black would seem to be easier for the human eye to read than either color on green. I think it was a conspiracy by optometrists everywhere to make kids get glasses…
