#306 – Happy Engineers

with 18 comments

I went to Rowan University, which, above all, is known for three things: being a suitcase college, its education department, and its engineers. That last group though, while often talked about, were rarely seen. They were the snow leopards of the campus, taking to their building and living there for nights upon nights, feasting on the meat of their weaker companions. At least, that’s what I think they did. I never knew an engineer for my entire four years of college, but from what the rumors whispered it sounded like they were the busiest of bodies. And so they deserve some time off, I’d say. Happy Engineers Week, everyone!

Also, I’m proud to be a New Jersian, if only because we can knock down New York governors like loose mailboxes.

If life had background music playing your song
I have got to be honest, I tried to escape you
But the orchestra plays on, and they sang

  1. Why are you riding Lucy the Elephant?

  4. let’s not start a new york v. new jersey thing…we both know that’s going to get ugly for both of us. 🙂

  5. The 3rd week in March is American Chocolate week, way better than silly engineers week! Ride, Dumbo, ride!

  6. I’ve got several engineers in my family, one is at Duke finishing her PhD, two went to Lehigh (and one of those is likely to marry a Jersey girl).

    But all of that matters not. I now have more information to further scry into your past to attempt to decipher what your present job is. I’m determined. So apologies if I cyber-stalk you a bit today.

  7. Ooooooh, this sounds fun, TK. Tell me what you know of me so far!

  8. Damn you Abbamondi! I could only find a few articles you wrote for The Whit, and one quote that put you as a Junior in 2004.

    In the immortal words of Dr. Brown: “Damn.”

  9. Ha!

    And yes, all of that is correct.

    Haha, I FOUND IT!. YES! Queue the evil laughter, I am a genius……well…..not really……but Google is.

    Coming to you live from a year ago (plus three days), an interview with the great Paul Abbamondi (be impressed, I can spell your last name without searching for it – kind of like Kurt R. A. Giambastiani’s name).

    Three things I learned from this interview with Paul.
    1. What he does during the day.
    2. Why he doesn’t draw comics about his day job (how would you do that?).
    3. What Paul “really” looks like (make sure you click on that photo to see it larger).

  11. Your Google-fu is mighty, TK. 🙂

    I see I was sans beard back then. And now you know why I don’t draw about my day job. There isn’t much to capture in comic form. For all your hard work, you get a…cookie.

    Also, I’ll be getting to your story soonish. I’m just trying to finish up one to submit to a contest, and then I’ll be all over it.

  12. American Chocolate Week! Just in time for Easter. Mmmm…chocolate Easter bunnies…and that’s CHOCOLATE, none of those neon, foamy Peeps things for me, thank you.


    March 13, 2008 at 11:16 am

  13. Mmm chocolate. And you and I, Trina, are on the same page Peep-wise. D knows how deep my hatred goes for those pieces of nastiness. I can’t believe people eat them and think they taste good. I’d rather chew on a foot.

  14. I feel like if you are going to do social commentary in your post on this subject your comic should probably have the word boner in it, or at least a form; bone job would work. Think about it in the future.


    March 13, 2008 at 5:41 pm

  15. I am confused. Where is this boner bit coming from?


    March 13, 2008 at 7:26 pm

  16. I hope you will be decorating your abode with the stuffed peep I bought you 🙂


    March 13, 2008 at 7:42 pm

  17. Haha, I just think with what he did it’s your obligation to use the word boner when talking about it.

    Like, “Eliot Spitzer believe he could pull one of the biggest boners in the 21st century by meeting with a $4500 an hour prostitute.”

    You’re too good for serious news commentary, or maybe I’m too childish to like reading about it.


    March 14, 2008 at 12:27 am

  18. Ha, hmm okay. I see where you are going with it. Yeah, I missed the chance to really add some humor to my small mention of the news. And I used to be a journalist! For shame! 😛
