Frazz by Jef Mallett for April 14, 2013
Mrs. Olsen: Do you have a problem with diagramming sentences, Caulfield? Caulfield: It just seems like pointless busy work. Mrs. Olsen: Try thinking of it as your job. Caulfield: How much does this "job" pay? Mrs. Olsen: Nothing. Caulfield: Okay. I'll prioritize it accordingly. Mrs. Olsen: All your jobs pay exactly the same. Caulfield: Then I'll go on intrinsic value. Mrs. Olsen: You will prioritize it based on me demanding it. Caulfield: If I control the supply, isn't it up to you to adjust the demand? Frazz: If economics is a mashup of science, math and sociology, how did it come up in a grammar class? Caulfield: Annoyance is a fungible commodity.
