Love the one about the cat and AG!

Though hilarious, the cat one has been done before.......

But that's not to say you can't do one.

The college debt one is great! Having the bed sag under the tremendous weight would add to the visual.

I like the student loan debt one and the fingernails on the chalkboard.

I like the top 2 best. What if the roommate says "I'm your new roommate" and the caption reads, "... for the next 30 years"

Top two are keepers. Bottom three are just OK.

I dig on the student loan debt one. It's no wonder why there is so much credit card debt among college students. College teaches people to live above their means right out of the gate.


The best one I've heard is colleges telling students to not get a job because the work load will be too heavy!

While the cat one has its laughs, the problem with it is, it's based on an event that's transient and unless you caught the story on Yahoo or in one of those "fun side" (?) of the news bits, you're not going to get the joke. It's not a gag that's going to stand the test of time.

I think the college one is superior. Shorter, punchier gag and one that's an evergreen. Nearly anyone who's been to college will get it. And you were right to take both suggestions. They were improvements.

I read the cartoons bottom up, and without reading the nameplate thought the cat one was a comment on how dilligently the publishing house was going after people who wanted to distribute Harry Potter before the official release date.

Like a "Now we have to kill the cat, he knows too much! (because he was lying on the MS).

I just thought that would amuse you.

The cat thing is hilarious, IF you happen to have seen the referenced news report.

Of course this admin is more likely to poison the cat than take the hint. . .
