Show of hands, who remembered that EMU was Bull’s alma mater? Just you in the back? You realize we all know you are lying, right?
Actually, EMU was mentioned as Bull’s alma mater in recent memory, back in March of 2012. Apparently, they not only changed the school motto since Bull went to school there, they changed the name of the whole school from Eastern Midwest University. Still, on the scale of retcons this strip has seen, this is practically perfect continuity. In fact, this Tuesday’s strip featured another very nice call-back to those 2012 strips, Bull’s interest in free EMU t-shirts.
Daily Emo paraprosdokian (Greek and Latin are the same thing, right?):
“I sense a rising anti-intellectualism in this nation, don’t you?
The other day I was hanging floss out on the line to dry, this guy comes to our house says ‘I’d like to read your gas meter.’
I said, ‘whatever happened to the classics?'”
