As you can see, we’ve dropped the “Bullying” arc because Mr. Batiuk had to get in another Les fix. I’m sure the “Bullying” arc will be back–there are
awards to win nominations to be had, after all.
While he was lovingly detailing Les, he forgot how to draw the other characters. For evidence, look at Chullo in panel one–worst face this week. He looks like Becky at the Wally-Rachel wedding–
–a hastily decorated potato pressed into service. Perhaps even the very same potato. On the other hand, look at panel two–four sets of heavy-lidded world-weary eyes.
Anyway, what we have today is more evidence that Chullo and Glasses are dumber than rocks.
In the past, students have hated attending Les’ class, largely because they hate Les, but also because he’s a dull pedant who turns the learning process into sheer torture. Puns, Hemingway, Moby Dick and “trick” trick questions. No one wants to be in Les’ class.
Now, here come Chullo and Glasses, and they can’t wait to sit in for more of the same.
Of course, Les would have a roster of students who were supposed to be in his class this year, and he could easily see that Chullo and Glasses are signed up. Unless in Westview High, all you do is show up at a class and you’re enrolled.
And was Les so enraged by this perfidy that he marched the Dumbtastic Duo into the principal’s office? If not, whose “OFFICE” is this? Does Les hold classes in his office? Is Glasses saying “Told you” to Les Moore? Seems rather disrespectful; even Les deserves respect for his position (and for nothing else).
So, you make the call: lazy ignorance or willful stupidity?
