Hey! I'm Gonna Be an English Major!

In today's strip Wilberforce is enlightening us with some commentary about some guy named Rick Goetchius who is home from college for a couple weeks. Not having met this Rick Goetchius, it makes me wonder why the reader should care about him but then we uneasily segue into why people go to college and what Brutus' major is. Brutus is an English major--he went to college but a 12-year-old girl is still smarter than him. That's not a ringing endorsement for the college Brutus Thornapple went to. And sadly, since Brutus is a legacy that means Wilberforce will more than likely go to the same one. God help us all.

Also, I noticed on the website that if I enjoy TBL, which I don't, I'd also enjoy Andy Capp, Drabble and Red & Rover but unfortunately I did not. The website lied to me. Just like everyone else.
