I think Zero and Harvard rejection is like Marty McFly and chickens.

Zero Like Me #31: Belong Here
<- Previous...Next->

Easter Eggs: "Yale" in panel 3, "sux" in panel 4. Subtle humor hidden in being gung-ho about watching a Cantab on TV.

Fun Facts: Today's setting is my favorite accident slash warzone, 'Nam.

Baa: I've had this motto for a while called "zero ethos," which I believe is one of the worst things you can have. To have zero ethos is to have no leg to stand on, to not be worth anything. To be a windbag; to be useless, futile, inept, irrelevant, etc. One of my greatest anxieties is having zero ethos.

I wrote this comic in June after one of my, what, three Yale Late Night Conversations inspired me to wonder about FroCos even more than I already had. I've been trying to squeeze this into the production schedule since week two, and it was a hassle to make, but most of the extra efforts were fruitless anyway. So it goes.

Anyway, I wish I would have known that my FroCos weren't superhuman. I kinda see it now, but wish I knew it then. Or maybe I don't. I don't know. If a freshman must question something, the least they can do is question their superheroes. I don't want to say mine lied to me, but they sure coulda helped more.

To B.H.--I now have an opinion on "Bright College Years," just in case you were still wondering.

I think this comic is 10x funnier if you're in JE and know exactly how fucked up our frocos are.
