Well, it's technically still Saturday, so...yay.

Saturday, November 14, 2009
Panel 1: In the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Barbara glares at a student essay. We can also see the title page of an oversized essay, which reads: "Shakespeare Did Not Write His Plays: A Proof." The words "West of Bathurst?" and "by Kari Maaren" are written on the title page in red ink.

Barbara: You've got to be freaking kidding me.

Panel 2: Barbara leans over a table, holding her head and staring at the paper she's marking.

Barbara: Oh God. That's just...what the hell?

Panel 3:

Semi-colon fault. Semi-colon fault. Semi-colon fault. I shall smite you.

Panel 4:

Are you analysing the text? Of course not! What's stopping you? Nothing!

Panel 5: Barbara stands up and brandishes her fist at the paper.

I don't care that the story's unrealistic, and you shouldn't either.

Panel 6:
Barbara violently shakes the paper while scrunching it in her hand.

Barbara: That's stupid! You're stupid! I have taught you nothing! Go destroy someone else's life, you pustule!

Panel 7: Marie stares at Barbara, who is slumped in her chair, the mangled paper on the table before her.

Marie: Feeling better?

Barbara: I will be once you've found me a shredder and some matches.

Alt-Text: When I am marking, I sometimes yell at the papers rather loudly. This can be a problem when I'm marking in public.
