    That kid looks a lot like Pinocchio.

    I thought Pinocchio seemed a bit wooden there.

    Oh geez. How true this is. I’m going to graduate with $60K worth of student loans. .

    I sure hope you’re majoring in something related to science or technology. Jobs involving English Lit are scarce.

    This is who Pinnochio is: http://www.ask.com/web?qsrc=1&o=ffx&l=dir&q=+Pinnochio&qo=serpSearchTopBox

    Maybe then you’ll get the joke about today’s character wanting to be a real boy.

    The boy IS Pinocchio – he should have been glad to be wooden – that way he could only worry about dry rot and termites…

    I think you just proved that you don’t understand humor.

    I like my humor wry and dry.
    Pinocchio = ‘eye pins..’

    Not sure why people get such big debts, I went to college part time, worked full time…took me twice as long to graduate but I graduated with no debt. I only used scholarships and grants, no loans to pay back.

    I thought the trade off of no debt was better than getting done in half the time. A friend who didn’t work and got a job faster than me has a ton of debt.

    Education is just like any other commodity, you don’t buy a car you can’t afford, you don’t buy a education you can’t afford, especially in a career you can’t find a job in.

    Make a list of in demand jobs and then choose from there, don’t just pick whatever you want. That is if you want to get a job in your choosen field, otherwise people will be stuck working at a crappy job with student loans and no way to get a job they are qualified for.

    I think the play on words was College Loan debt was what made a kid real, not having a flesh and blood body. It would be more of a wry joke to those parents with kids in college debt. Ignore the Trolls, enjoy the day.

    Don’t help them they will never do it themselves.

    Not everyone gets scholarships and grants. Loans are the only way.

    Wait, so you did eight years low incoming starving student thing….I did that starving student for four years but then had good income and life afterwards. so what if it took eight years to pay loan

    Oh, I understood Parker and Hart’s cartoon, it was the comment on the cartoon, I didn’t understand. I thought there must have been a hidden meaning behind it. I think I was expecting too much though.
    But thanks for the friendly greeting, unusual in this forum.
