Sketch: January 1995

<< Previous | Next >>

Background: There was an informal study done sometime during the 1994-1995 school year that discovered that more than 40% of Duke students graduate without having gone on a date. This was my best guess as to why. (I dated a girl who once turned me down for a Saturday night out because she was going to be "studying". I'd have felt rejected had it not been completely true.)

The two students in the cartoon are looking at Pic Books. They were given out to freshmen each year, and contained photos of all the other incoming freshmen. Basically, a yearbook if it just had your class' photos in it.

I can't quite figure out why this one never ran. It's certainly better than the worst cartoons of the semester.
