Wot’s Adeela wit you? Eh?

Why is Adeela not excited about graduating from college in today’s strip?
The answer may be undeserving awards-bait… Film at 11.

Thank goodness Tony returned in time to set up this silly transition. I don’t know what we all would have done had Funky had to ask Rachel this rote and rhetorical question. Probably donned sackcloth and ashes…

Well, at least Chuck Ayers doesn’t use wavy panel borders for in-strip transitions from one place to another like TB did. I hate that.

    Oh Lord, does Batiuk seriously think professors these days just print out grades and post them on a bulletin board?
    Also, am I crazy, or did Wally not say he wasn’t going to wear that jacket around Adeela anymore?

      Yeah, and I went to college in NE Ohio and even back in the day, grades weren’t just casually posted like this. We were given a number and your grade was posted using that. Then professors stopped posting altogether and you had to either make an appt to see your professor or wait till the grades were mailed out.

      Poor Adela . Nothing goes her way in Westviewisstan.

    Adeela…proof that misery and sad-sackery is indeed a multi-cultural phenomenon. It figures that she’d pop back up just in time to ruin Wally’s big day with her multi-cultural woes. She even looks the part, what with the big shapeless head and blobfish nose and all. Sigh.

    Poor Adeela, it looks like she didn’t get the role of Suzie Peterson in the community college’s upcoming performance of Funky Winkerbean’s Homecoming. She flubbed a couple of notes singing “I Want A Hunk” in her audition.

      EXCUSE ME! That should be the community college’s WORLD PREMIERE of Funky Winkerbean’s Homecoming.

    GURU: “Adeela! We are here for meditation, not graduation!”

    We’re assuming that she actually did graduate and fears what’ll happen next. We could be in for a different load of old cobblers entirely…..

  6. Wow, Tony’s question is that of a person who is already tired and bored of the people he’s with. That’s the master’s touch!

    Kan’t State University.

  8. Just as an aside, I love how Santa looks embedded in the ceiling (in the masthead).

  9. Please…please don’t let this be about Adeela being here on a student visa and now having graduated not wanting to return of her native soil, homeland, etc. Please don’t let this be about overstaying a student visa and illegal immigration and all those thing that TB saw in a newspaper last year and how easy it will be for Adeela to get a green card (after Wally sponsors her). Please don’t do that storyline…

    What is it with the noses in this strip?! In panel 1, Funky appears ready to audition for the DC Cinematic Universe’s next blockbuster smash, “Hawkman”.
