Full Title:

Graduate From College Comic

Excerpt:

See by this picture where your brain took root,
Your teacher found it with his thick-soled boot;
He saw your head was nothing but a bubble,
And reached at once the bottom of all your trouble.
‘T is sweet, indeed, within this world of strife,
To get a big lift in our youthful life;
And you got One that made your bones so sore,
You couldn’t sit down for six long months or more.
Go get a brick and rub your head, you sinner!
And try to make your skull six inches thinner;
For now it is so thick, and hardened too,
‘T would take six months for knowledge to break through.
