“Teachers don’t appreciate zingers …”
I wonder how much time the average cartoonist spent at the principal’s office. Let’s just hope your school year goes better than depicted in these cartoons.
“I figured if I have to be here every day, I’d might as well make a little money.”
This is known as free enterprise. It is also known as another free trip to the Principal’s Office.
“I suffer from test-taking anxiety, brought on by lack of studying.”
Yep, that’ll do it. I don’t mean to encourage deceit, young lady, but you might leave off the second part of that sentence next time. Just go with the “test-taking anxiety” defense.
“You said we learn from our mistakes, so I must be learning a lot.”
I have to say that, as defenses go, this isn’t bad. I don’t think Pop is buying it, but it was worth a try.
“Excuse me, but at what point during my career as a supermodel will I have need for English?”
I foresee another trip to the Principal’s Office. This sassy cartoon appeared in the Post in 1998.
“My parents think I watch too much TV, so I’m not allowed to watch unless my homework is done by 8:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m. Central.”
Geeze, where do parents get these notions? This is by Marty Bucella, one of the artists spotlighted in our “Meet the Cartoonist” feature.
“They call it the ‘Three R’s,’ and then say we can’t spell!”
Well, kid, I can’t argue with your logic. I don’t know if you’re “smarter than a 5th grader,” but you may be smarter than the average adult!
“Does your mother always sign your report cards, ‘My Mom’?”
Oops. This is from Bob Vojtko, who was featured in another one of our “Meet the Cartoonist” posts.
“I sure hope I grow up to be beautiful—’cause if I can’t get by on my looks, I’m doomed.”
One more, simply because I think it’s so darn cute.
