Caption: 1982. Mrs. Desilettes was looking for you today, Lemont. Where were you? I was out sick. I had one of those 24-hour flus. But I saw you at homeroom, at recess, in science, at lunch, in english, during the fire drill … You weren't gone for 24 hours. You were only gone during math class. Einstein said time is relative.

Cartoonist(s): Darrin Bell
Comic/Cartoon: Rudy Park
Viewable Date: 2016-09-04 Pub. Date: 2016-09-04
Image Number: 147195
Caption: Today's man lesson is "The Art of Promising." I'm ready. Part one: Never … promise … anything. Wait … What do you mean? Pretend you're the lady, ask me to promise you something. Ok … (ahem) … Promise me you won't ever even look at another woman? A man would have to be crazy to look at another woman when he could be looking at the most beautiful woman in the world. And I'm not crazy. Notice, if you will, not only is there a complete absence of a promise ... there are also at least four iron-clad loopholes built in. Can you identify them? This is worse than math to me.

Image Number: 140827
Caption: Boss, I just found out about a death in the family. Can I have some time off? Of course you can. The amount you may have depends on the distance of the relation. If it was a parent, you can have one full day. 18 hours for a sibling, 9 hours for a cousin ... but only if it's your first cousin. Your Facebook post says it was your fourth cousin thrice removed. That'll get you 45 seconds of bereavement time. Very bad man.

Caption: … After the 9/11 memorial, we'll do short vows. Then, we'll need some honeymoon time off. Unfortunately, you can't do the wedding here. District policy. And it looks like that time off won't work, anyway … Sigh. Ok, ready to talk dates? Ready to talk eloping?

Image Number: 135624
Caption: Did you hear the "Ask Sadie" show today? They were talking about breakups. Specifically, how to break up with someone without hurting their feelings. I find the best way to protect her feelings is to just disappear. Then she ain't cry at you or nothin'. Just 'cause you're not there to see her cry doesn't mean she's not crying, Clyde. Yeh it do, bruh. It one of them "tree fallin' in the forest" things.

Caption: Ugh! What a day! Lectures, finals, homework, shopping, laundry - Too much stress! How do you do it, Dez? How do you stay so calm? I schedule time for nonschedulement. Uh … Ok. Sounds like one more thing to do. No, it's one less non-thing to do. It's anti-doing, active inactivity, the total absence of complete presence. The mindful de-minding of mindless - Stop. I'm feeling more stressed now ...

Caption: Do you think I'm army material, Randy? I think you'd be a real asset to the army. Really? Pain is an asset, because otherwise, how would one appreciate pleasure? Loneliness is an asset, for otherwise how would one appreciate love? I think boot camp would be much cheaper than a gym membership. Death is an asset. How else would one cherish life?

Caption: Who'll fill in while your English teacher is on maternity leave? Probably and old-bag substitute. Teach English for a couple of months? I'd love to! Umm, nana? Aren't you too old to go back to teaching? Au contraire! They don't want anyone who could possibly get pregnant. Uh-oh. Age discrimination.
