Ha ha! 2. Trüe.
Time for grad school
is the cardigan coming back to?
One could cut out the last panel and affix it to any number of things.
By gum, you are right! I am going to take the literal approach and literally affix that last panel to a number of things! Literally! (Examples include but are not limited to: public washrooms, my clothes closet and the front door of the Burger King down the street.)
On a completely unrelated note, I would like to propose that everyone start saying “by gum!” a whole lot more. Readysetgo!
@krimson: i’m going to paste it to all of my high school students’ bags and binders.
I’m in. It’s the new Alice’s Restaurant Anti Massecre Movement. Stick it on conservative student group posters, public hand sanitizer stations, and No skateboarding signs.
Now that Girl has been identified as a carrier of sickle cell bohemia, society must quarantine her. By gum.
i think a lot of people would pay for a sticker of the last panel.
Singing groups are upper middle class? Really?
Let’s see if Distant Voices, Still Lives is still on Youtube.
Yes! It is! Here you go:
Well that’s not very upper middle class, is it.
I’d definitely pay for a sticker of the last panel. Just imagine: if people bought enough of them, someone would eventually have to go stick one on Dorothy’s [fancy kind of dwelling in fancy New York neighborhood].
(what do I know about the upper middle class or New York? Nothing, apparently.)
I didn’t think singing groups were particularly upper middle class either. What a non-starter. :(
I think in some geographic contexts, a capella groups are upper-middle. Yale has had the Whiffenpoofs for I don’t know how long, and Princeton its Nassoons and Tigertones. It was during the last “preppy revival” (early 80’s, the era of Izod and The Preppy Handbook) that Stanford got its Fleet Street Singers, an attempt to be more like its upper-middle East Coast counterparts. So, yes, a capella does mean upper-middle in many contexts.
The Office’s Andrew Bernarna, The NArd-Dog may have something to do with it
The show choir is a very upper middle class thing, especially in the midwest. It requires going to a school at 1) funds the (silly) arts, and 2) wastes money on sequins and aquanet hair spray. There were a lot of Catholic schools in our ‘league’.
There’s a sudden mainstream cultural interest in a Capella singing groups and show choirs?
Wait. When did Cat become the philosophical one?
But… I’ve always enjoyed show choirs and a cappella groups. I was a choir kid in high school….
@Jim: just look up GLEE, the new show on FOX.
In some of the old cartoons there would be this 16 ton flat top pyramidal weight that would drop out of the sky and obliterate one of the characters. Cat just dropped an invisible one on Girl in 5.
