I started coming up with these at about hour fifteen of my final paper for last semester’s class.* Hope you like `em. Leave more in the comments if your sense of humor is as twelve-year-old-esque as mine evidently is. Sorry if some of these are too jargon-y for those friends of mine who already think I’m too much of a pedant; I’d be happy to translate them into layman’s (heh, heh) terms. Or you can just add some of your own about organic chemistry or whatever.
Also, hi to the zillions of you who visited and linked to my Metro drinks comic! Clearly, the key to minor local internet fame is mocking Metro, which I’m okay with. I’m still a little overwhelmed by how many folks read that one, and, by extension, how many people will probably see this one. If any of my professors from VT are reading this, I promise I got more out of your classes than vocabulary fodder for lewd and cheesy comics! And if the bearded dude who was reading The Death and Life of Great American Cities on the S2 yesterday is reading this, you inspired panel six and that’s why I was giggling in your general direction.
If you like this level of pedantry & punning, perhaps you’ll dig the Mies van der Robot and the list of New Urbanist beers in this post.
