    How would Zonker know? He didn’t get any degrees, did he? He left to attend the tanning convention, or am I mixing things up?

    GT tooka sabbatical oh, so many years ago and the strip went on hiatus. When GT returned, he jumped the characters’ storylines ahead a la Funky Winkerbean. When the strip returned, in wes the 1980’s, the characters had all graduated, got jobs and became yuppies.
    Except Zonker, who was basically given a diploma and kicked out. Unwilling to find work, he just latched on to any of his old friends who would give him a free place to live.

    Doubt it. Uncle Duke, really knew what it meant to be at the pointy end of the stick.

    He could even start his own art movement. The “popsicle stick and glitter” school! Just in case the “canibis drug lord” thing doesn’t work out.

    If I remember correctly, Zonker accidentally signed up for a class he couldn’t fail, thereby getting the last credit needed to graduate. The Sunday strip when he realized what he had done spent a couple of months on my dorm room door. I think the class was " Pots for Jocks".

    Clark Kent said,
    The only 2 degrees I have are Celsius and Fahrenheit.
    BS = bull $#!‡, MS = more of the same,
    PhD = piled higher and deeper.

    I would wager the HS (high school) degree is also one you don’t have.

    @Pharmakeus Ubik

    I’ll up the ante and add Reaumur (like Celsius but with boiling point of water at 80 R)

    Popsicle sticks and glitter? The last class he was holding back to keep from graduating was kindergarten?

    As a former Art major myself I was prepared to be offended, before recollecting that GBT was an Art major. And he’s doing okay.
