La-bored Set Up

It’s an attack of the SMIRKS in today’s strip! Let’s count em’.


1. Professor Forehead channels his inner and outer Les Moore.
2. STATE sweatshirt-wearing bunhead has changed into a purple top.
3. Young Kevin James or that guy from Smashmouth?
4. Cindy? Mindy? Sadie? Jessica? Anon-o-blonde? I’m going with Mallory Brooks, the world’s perfect genome…
5. When did Ed Grimley start wearing glasses?
6. Thatsnought Hewmore would be smirking if someone hadn’t given him the dreaded hatchet face.
7. Emily/Amelia cements her new class project partnership with a handshake and a side smirk.
8. Wally’s cheekbones decide that if his mouth won’t smirk, they will.

    Note to Wally: you might have made a few friends at college if you wore a different jacket now and then, or at least washed that one once in a while. Get ready for a CLASH OF CULTURES, FW style, which means lots of sarcastic smirks and wry wordplay.

    Told ya Professor Forehead won 2nd place in the annual Les Moore Look-A-Like Contest at the Lisa’s Legacy 5K. He won $25!

    Wally would never have been issued that jacket by the army. It was replaced by the camouflage pattern. He would probably have been issued the pattern used during Desert Storm. And how many years has it been since his discharge? Doesn’t he have a civilian jacket yet?

      On the wages Funky pays him?

      Nevermind the fact that the only people who wear old Army overcoats are Hollywood disaffected Vietnam Vet archetypes, paramilitary nutbars and Travis Bickle wannabes…

      Believe me, I live in a HUGE military town and nobody wears their kit after discharge any more than someone would wear their college letterman jacket…

        I wondered about that. I can’t remember the last time I saw veterans wearing anything that identified them a veterans. Even during the Vietnam Era I’m willing to bet that most people wearing what were called fatigue jackets (the jacket that Wally’s wearing) bought them at the Arny-Navy Surplus store.

    I worked on several group projects when I was in college and not a single one involved self-selected groups or partners. Groups were always chosen for us.

    If Professor Forehead ever gets tired of not teaching college kids, he surely has a job not teaching high schoolers waiting for him at Westview High School. He may have to work on insulting his students a little more, but he’s got the rest of the job requirements down pat.

    I’m looking forward to the big reveal as to who the moke in the splash panel is.

    How much do you want to bet #2 is Cougar Linda in disguise?

  9. Oh, great. A moronic twist (she’s just as wary of Wally as he is of her) that leads directly to an understanding of facts on the ground that could have been taken from an Ali Baba movie……

    Hey, remember when this was gonna be about Funky offering Wally his old job?

    On a side note, the blank chalkboard – not a whiteboard mind you – symbolizes this strip so, so well.

    They fall in love and get married. Retcon Alert, people, Retcon Alert!

    So Private Bowe Bergdahl and Miss Hijab sit next to each other, nervously avoid talking or even looking at each other, professor tell everybody to pair up and they sit there looking around in nervous silence for five minutes watching everybody else pair up… AND only when everybody else has paired up, they finally give each other that “Guess we’re stuck together” acknowledgement…

    I’ve seen a lot of torrid love affairs in books and movies start off this way; also a lot of psycho stalker relationships, too… Which one will it be?

    And extra credit for Wally looking old enough to be Cindye Sommerse-Winkerbeane-Jarre’s father…

    And where is Cindye? Lounging on a Malibu beach with the type of 60-year-old bikini body any faded A-list starlet would sell her soul for…

    And their assignment?

    “Prepare an oral argument either supporting or refuting the assertion that having some scrawny Israeli chick play Diana Prince was the endgame result of some wide-reaching Mossad plot infiltrating the highest levels of power in Hollywood boardrooms in order to promulgate that nation’s hegemony.”

    Boy Wally, those glasses sure aren’t working for you.
