Okay, I’ve managed to mix in some math humor and some programming humor, and people haven’t fled the strip screaming…so let’s see if I can pull off a Mechanical Engineering joke.

I only had to take a couple of ME courses in my pursuit of an EE degree, but I remember being amazed that for Statics I basically spent an entire semester analyzing why crap stayed put.  I felt the entire class was just a buildup for its sequel, Dynamics.

MRS. SHOEBOX’S ASSESSMENT OF TODAY’S STRIP: Oh…I thought that said “statistics.”  I was wondering what the hell you were talking about.

(Note that this assessment prompted me to change the unseen presumably-significant other’s final line from “But that’s a statics book” to the more verbose final product.)

See you next week!
