This is great. I have now abused this same misunderstood boy genius in two separate strips. I am sure this is the same kid who is in Boy Reading from 2002.
Or maybe all the kids in the clip art collection go to the same bad barber. I know the barber in question. I used him in a strip that I hated so much I dropped it completely out of the archives when I transitioned from the old Nth Degree site to my own hosted domain. Neither a good nor funny barber.
