My Brief Stint as a Cartoonist

No, Brotha Buck. I am not trying to emulate you. I'm not worthy. Not even close.

While looking through my archived files, I ran into this "comic strip" created by yours truly about six years ago while moonlighting as an adjunct faculty member at a local university. DO NOT miss this posting if you have not read it. The Best Posting from the Best Dog In the World ever!

Some background information is in order. When I taught a lower division course called "Computer Architecture," all of my students had a co-requisite course which they had to take concurrently while taking my course. The course ID for particular this co-requisite course was 241 while mine 240.

Apparently the professor that they had was unbearable. Although I didn't know the professor, I tried to provide them with sympathetic ears in my misguided attempts to be a "cool professor." And they talked and talked and talked incessantly about 241, and seldom my course.

Then one week, they were sweating out the upcoming midterm in that class. The looks of helplessness on their faces were hard to watch.

So as a "cool professor" that I was, I published this comic strip on my class website to cheer them up. Nobody thanked me for it.

241, 241, 241. All Professor Cho hears about is 241

One fateful day, Professor Cho passes out.

Instead of wallowing in jealousy, Professor Cho decides to cheer up his students (Yes, I did bring in a set of pom poms into the classroom one day and put on a show. I don't wanna talk about it.)

He goes even further. He barges in in the middle of the 241 midterm to cheer up his beloved students.

Crime: Disturbing the Peace (Or just for being disturbing, period)
