I Hated Junior High

Every year was so miserable that I wished I had a giant robot to burn the place down... still kinda do.

Don't judge me.

Where did you go to school... the Himalayas? This is very nicely done, Joe. It's all bright and cheery if you just look at the colors, but if you look at the hundreds of dead junior high school students... a little less cheery. You're luck you didn't draw this in junior high. They arrest kids for stuff like this now. Especially if you actually brought the robot to school.

Nice work, Joe.

I went to school in Washington...

They have mountains there!

I never heard about this incident, but then I realized there were no survivors. Thanks for the laffs, pally pal.

I always wished I had a giant robot too, but not for this reason. Though there were a few boneheads that made me wish I'd studied Ninjitsu before 9th grade. Give 'em something to think about on the way to the Recovery Room. Is Ninjitsu a major at BYU?

I see you're experimenting with your style, that's so cool! Great sketch Joe!

Job interview: "Joe, so, do you have a diploma?"

"No... you see, a giant robot destroyed my school."

"Oh dear, that's awful. The job is yours."

One of my favorite books is the Calvin and Hobbes 10th Anniversary book. In one part, Watterson discusses concerned responses from readers of a comic he drew of Calvin's fantasy of destroying his elementary school with a pair of missiles launched from a jet.

Watterson said that anyone who never fantasized about blowing his school off the face of the planet probably never went to school.

I swear this was on the first episode of Power Rangers. Nice work Joe.
