I couldn’t even begin to count the times I’ve been walking on a university campus and somebody’s tried to give me a flyer about how Communism will be the next big thing to change the system. My stepdad happened to see the script for today’s comic and said that it was exactly the same 40 years ago when he was at university; I’ll let you draw your own conclusions about how much the system is changed by this next big thing.
Never gotten a flyer for Feudalism, though. It’s probably more common over in Europe.

Melbourne’s train system may be a Sisyphan nightmare that can only be escaped by the warm embrace of death itself, but at least we have interesting names for stations. All of these stations are real:
Incidentally, ‘Batman’ is named after the founder of Melbourne, who was called John Batman. Melbourne was almost called Batmania. That sounds like something we would put in The Zunfa Ephemeris, but it is 100% true.
Retired basketballer Dennis Rodman recently paid a visit to North Korea, where he hung out with Kim Jong-Un and watched a basketball game together. Apparently the fact that North Korea is arming itself up and threatening the US, Japan, and South Korea with nuclear attack doesn’t phase him (but then again, he has been in more intense situations).
Space Jam is one of those films that… I just can’t adequately explain in a comic text post. It occupies that strange space between so bad it’s good and so bad it’s genuinely terrible, and like Con Air, you can’t be sure if the filmmakers didn’t actually know they were making something that awful and were secretly in on the joke. If you haven’t seen it, don’t take this as a recommendation, but you need to watch it.
