It’s probably important to state that these are really just me pranking the Daily. I don’t care if they get published anywhere — it’s worth it for the simple enjoyment of knowing that my friends all grimace when they see Goldy eviscerating a large hoofed mammal. Oh, I didn’t draw that one.
I’m trying to figure out exactly how to write topical political cartoons, but my observations on the money-driven antics of the current U of M administration so far haven’t been all that successful. Really, I should draw Bob Bruininks sitting on a throne made of the skulls of current and former students, or maybe (and this might be too subtle to ever pull off), the university telling the incoming freshmen of a few years from now “oh, wow, we’re so glad to finally have some good students” — perhaps with devalued alumni standing right there in their maroon and gold sweatshirts, a look of surprise and horror on their faces and pennants falling from their numb fingers. You can attend games at the new stadium, but they’d really prefer if your dumb kids didn’t get accepted, because they’re probably not going to perform top three research. Sorry.
