We made a comic today even though Wes transformed into a cephalopod while Tony was giddy over some insider information.
Don’t forget! Today is the LAST DAY to enter the ASP Anniversary Contest! Have it emailed to us before we wake up tomorrow morning.
hilarious, as usual.
English degree indeed.
Hidden comic is a blast.
i have a English degree….
Then you should know it’s an* English degree?
lmao! that was kinda mean
Welcome to America. :/
I call bullshit
Shenanigans! Everybody get your brooms, shenanigans are declared!
break out the shotguns, ready your condoms, start the engine, the shenanigans has been called! TO WAR!
Laugh! Liberal Arts Degree popped into my head immediately for useless degrees half a second before I brought up the hidden. Nice. Still chuckling.
Remember kids, the more you learn, the more knowledge you pass onto the worms.
Remember kids, school is for fools.
Also I need your body to complete some unfinished business.
“A clown and your mom” isn’t going to check itself off my list.
i really hope that was a joke. otherwise “a english” degree? i think you should definitely ask for your money back.
It’s so cartoon!
I’m so happy I was a psych major because now I know how to deal with moron customers in the call center. They’re usually Comp Sci majors.
Loved the “insidee Info” thing… NO! hah, kool.
Remember kids, if your six feet under and you just so happen to still be alive, ask the worms what knowledge they have accumulated.
this is so f—ing true
Every day I hope this comic isn’t true.
Engineer school was a pain in the ass but the work salary made it worth it.
an english degree
the only thing higher education gave me were the skills to get high.
I dunno, I went and turned my physics degree into a profitable software business.
On the other hand, if I had an English degree, I’d be screwed.
Shut up, chumly.
Don’t let assclowns like this guy get you down. I got an English degree and now am enrolled in a a screenwriting program at one of the best universities in da’ nation.
Congrats, how much is that costing you a semester? Plans after? Good luck…
I don’t know if I should laugh or cry at this comic. I’m off to consummate my 200K degree by looking for a job at Starbucks. FML.
I got an engineering degree and this still holds true! Cheers to creators!
Yeah. And the ones coming to terms with mom cutting off their access to their 80 Paladin.
There is no Spirit Healer in RL….aka Offline.
As someone who is now in a field that has absolutely nothing to do with my degree, I completely agree with this. Nicely done.
Replace the word ‘English’ with the word ‘Art’.
It’s great to learn – BECAUSE KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!
College kicks ass.
But engineering is soooo harrd…
hehe, yup… an English degree, in your response is the answer.
Sucks to be me right about now.
I wonder what brand of Chow I should buy today….
Is worm food a reference to hamlet? Putting that english degree to work for ya?
hahahah yeah, and fyl indeed
Haha, Bachelors in MechEng and I’m earning minimum wage at Target.
There are a lot of things you can do with any major, so stop being haters
just remember kids, illegal trading degrees are ALWAYS in style!
Yeh, graduated with an art degree… now working construction full time
I’m an English major. XP
I’m doing perfectly fine thank you. 🙂 Which is the exact opposite of my brother who has an MBA and rotting away on the streets.
history degree too
I’m getting an art degree. TY. I also was just given a studio to work out of for the next three months. No rent for me!
And no matter what your degree, you can *always* make money selling drugs!
I work in the film industry. Every production designer I have ever worked with has a degree. All the low end loser workers- like myself have no education. If you want to be successful with a degree- use the degree. If you get a job and start actually working- by the time you get to the point of moving up- if you have a degree you are in a much better spot than the guy with no degree beside you. The problem with college and university grads is they have no drive. After they get shitted out of the system they don’t know what to do with themselves. It’s as if they need an authoratative figure to tell them where to go and what to do. Go figure it out. I did when I was 19. The only difference between me and you is I will be making the same money in 20 years- you may not be. (If someone writes some bullshit Quentin Tarantino and no education reply to this post- they are stupid. I have six years experience in the professional film industy as a set decorator/ props assistant. I know more about it than you and your blockbuster card you fucking loser.)
Is that your auto biography or what? I didn’t bother reading it.
No, its my Obituary…
Why isn’t there a book published ?
Oh god.I am getting english degree.I’m dooomed.
Just like your parent taught you.
BS Astrophysics, BA Philosophy… 4 years working as an audio-visual tech and IT (easily over 100K/year)… now a cashier at WalMart… Gob bless the American economic situation! 😀
Write a book or three. Pop-science sells; I’ve got Asimov & Kaku handy next to my bed, but I can never get enough, really. (Other times it might be Sagan or even Goodall.) And you don’t even have to quit your “day job” to do it.
If you got a philosophy degree and can’t write, you should ask for your money back, because that’s pretty much all there is to it.
My degree can stay up later than your degree!
I got a degree in computer science and now I cry myself to sleep!
Grad work in evolutionary biology. First job out of school? Night security guard. Ended up a hospital administrator. Liked the people. Quit that. Became a support tech. 70% drop in pay. Now manage a multinational support team. Yeah. Who knows which way these things go. Just keep trying.
20k in debt and I haven’t even declared a major.
Congratulations me for the win.
best bet is a psychology degree or economy degree right now psychology you can atleast manage anyone and economy well am sure we are looking to economist to fix our problems
Ooo. Engineering. Oooo. And get paid well in a job that you will hate for all eternity. Oooo. Never ending suffering in a pit of hate, abject misery, and dispair. Unless you like numbers. Then it’s not bad, really.
Theatre degree, 3 years of restaurant work, and now im getting into voice overs. Waiters in NYC can make up to and above 30 an hour, find a cheap place in queens for 500 a month, and live like young rambunctious well.. youngin’s.
I got a chemistry degree.
it ain’t much better out there for me. slave-labor scientist. FML.
Remember kids, returns to education are the highest they have ever been and are steadily growing.
lol.. is that the same asshole ghost from prior comics?
there is only one ghost. DDDDDUUUUUUUHHHHHH
a grad degree in history + grad degree in library sci =academic prostitution
I started with the whole college thing, but got into too many arguments with the CompSci profs so I left after the first quarter.
Turns out I was right. I didn’t need to know Pascal to get anywhere in computer programming.
Slave-labor scientist isn’t that bad.
The answer to this, of course, is grad school.
I have a law degree, and now I’m a lawyer. Am I the only one who bothered to actually use their degree?
This is my life only I work at Staples and I do have the degree. Sad but true.
Finance Degree. The baby boomers are going to start giving their money to the new generation.
Well, my degree can eat more hot dogs than your degree.
Are you a professional journalist? You write very well.
I happen to getting an English degree myself. Although I come from an obscenely wealthy family as it is, so it`s really my choosing if i want to use it.
Quentin Tarantino is a crime against cinema.
I am yet to notice a comment by anyone with a prestigous degree
lol yah, a grad degree will solve all your problems and you’re guaranteed to get rich. good luck.
I HATE LAWYERS!!
A screenwriting program? Really? Like that’s something to be proud about…
You should definitely chill out. It’s a comic. However, I guess you have a point. You’ve made it far enough to be pious and afford a very expensive stick up your rear.
Really good one haha, It actually shows a good point as well 😛
A ENGLISH degree? Doubt it.
I imagine he’d be much more emaciated and worn-out if he had that degree- student loans don’t pay themselves!
hahahahahahahaha. knowledge is power?! what a joke. there are more intelligent people unemployed than ever before. good luck with that. knowing the right people is power…
I’m gonna eat your brains, and steal your knowledge.
Everyone forgot about how useless religious studies is
Great comic!! I’m a recently unemployed Ph.D. and this is exactly what I needed right now.
The degree was probably Communications . . .
Love this comic.
I have a M.Ed. (that’s education) in Curriculum and a BA in Biology. Taught for 2 years, got swept out with everyone hired by the last administration and now am too high on the pay scale to get hired – no, really, it’s what they tell me. FML
I go to work every day saying, “I’m glad to be employed. People will always buy groceries”
You should of had him work at a call center. Very funny though. I shared this with everyone it the bay.
Too true, too true.
Put shit on shelf, go to college to not put shit on a shelf.
Where do you end up?
Still putting shit on a shelf, but thousands of dollars in debt.
Life, and the economy, is grand.
Nobody noticed in the hidden comic they spelled it “classyfieds”.
I think you should probably take a look at it again. There’s a reason nobody mentioned it.
man… you guys have no idea how much disrespect engineers get in asia… unless you work your way up to middle management, which still sux in terms of money.
the heck with the worms, im getting cremated
long list of comments? Check the worm at the bottom. You’re his food…
I am an Art Major and am fully aware of what that means for me job-wise. This motivates me to produce my best work, push myself harder, and even if I don’t get an art-related job, I know I am a great artist and that is all I’m really trying to be.
He’s in debt now
