Instituted at Colleges and Universities Nationwide TODAY!

ZOMG you guys! After years of effort, President Obama's higher education bill--which mandates nationwide trust in professors, asserting that they are experts in their field deserving of respect, living wages, and job security--has FINALLY become law. Huzzah!

One of the fantastic results: the new tenure application. I used to dread the thought, but now? I can't WAIT to apply for tenure. This is going to be so great!!! Be sure to share this with all your friends--especially the adjuncts and stuff. So happy for us all!!!

Hugs and kisses and academic freedom,


  1. The way tenure used to be in the 50's.

  2. I think this is an April Fools joke unfortunately.

  3. @ Fie: Your words, they confuse me! I can read them but they don't make any sense. Can you rephrase?

    @ Cynic: I am too easily confused to be in charge (see comment to Fie, above). Plus I am silly. And a girl. I draw cartoons. I mean, come on! I would probably turn my university's mascot into a sunshine unicorn that doesn't fight, because our current one looks so MEAN.

  4. It's a funny drawing, but what's with all the ads on the page?

  5. @Fussy: I'm assuming that the new, improved College Misery/Ecstasy is, like all forward-looking educational enterprises these days, a profitmaking entity. Hence the ads. One problem -- they're slowing down the loading of the page considerably, at least for me.

    I'm also wondering whether the "Psalm for the Day" ever runs the more depressing and/or gorier bits of the Psalms. So far, the selections seem rather. . . .selective. Perhaps Samantha (or her unicorn) is in charge over there.

  6. Sam's posts always express the truth. And make my day.

  7. This is off topic, but does anyone else think the new graphic looks like a shark? I am not saying I don't like it....I don't mind being portrayed as a shark.

    Also, I always had ads. Go figure.

  8. Oh, and thanks, Sam, for another wonderful cartoon. I wish you lived in my real life world!!
