"Not A Public Speaker"

umi-kun February 8th, 2011, 11:59 pm

Originally, this strip had a punchline, but it was removed in the interest of expressing our tall friend's humor through as little speech as possible.

HISTORY LESSON: Though Jefferson was one of the best and most eloquent writers of his time, he was terribly shy in public and lacked any substantial skills in tackling matters verbose. In fact, throughout his presidency, he only made a total of two big public speeches.

Moreover, the school that he mentions, Fleur-de-Lis Academy, is a French private school acting on many of the same principles as the Colonial Academy.

Though no one was mentioned by name in this particular strip, you might recognize our silent friend and our portly, bespectacled professor, there!

I hate that, when you're forced to introduce yourself to people you don't know, and they're staring at you, and you feel so stupid aagh "ohgodhelp" XD

Oh Franklin, laughing at poor TJ's non-speechiness...and his shiny head is perfect. And oh, Washington, you so reserved. And tall!

Too cute!! :3 XD This strip reminds me of something my history teacher said. He described Jefferson as socially retarded. (Jokingly of course, lol)
