As Bad as Hitler

Modern-day evils can’t match those of Adolf Hitler, but all too often on a college campus somebody makes the comparison. Here, one of our academic mice likens the campus police to Hitler because they enforce fire lane parking restrictions. The mouse thereby invites application of a form of Godwin’s Law: “The first side to bring up Hitler in a discussion loses.” (As originally formulated, Godwin’s law said only: “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.”)

Disgraceful student riots

Especially in the spring, students tend to get a little too enthusiastic at parties. Sometimes if the party is big enough and the mood gets bad, the result can be a riot. Faculty react a lot of different ways: some scolding the students, others remembering their own student days. In this strip, the academic mice remember getting drunk and attacking cops in the 1960s.
