Well done, and a big old congrats to you.

I propose you should be known as:

The Philosopher Formerly Knows as Jaded Dissertator, Ph.D.

I mean, really, you haven't been a Ph.D. long enough to be Jaded about that, right?

I had not clue what this drawing meant until I read the comments. What the hell is he sitting on in the second panel? Is he supposed to look like he's defecating?

Anon 11:17, I assume it's a pile of gold. Your advisor didn't give you one after you defended your dissertation? If not, maybe your advisor wasn't a monocle-wearing walrus and your defense didn't involve paddles. That's where you went wrong.

@11:17 - No clue here either. My advisor gave me five pints of Guiness at three in the afternoon, not that I'm complaining.

I hope for his sake that he's a better philosopher than he is a cartoonist.

Wow, some surprisingly catty comments.

I remember my defense well. Afterward a friend in attendance presented me a Kant finger puppet as a congratulatory gift. He has a magnet in his head, and so he's still on my refrigerator.

Congrats!

After I defended, I went out and bought a few pairs of white socks from Target. Not terribly exciting, I guess. What can I say? I was running low on socks.

Dudes,

he's sitting on a pile of ice because his ass is hot and sore from getting paddled by the walrus, et al.

what is wrong with you people?

I like it. It makes me think of the Stonecutters on the Simpsons, and has kept the song in my head for two days.

Okay, job-related question. If I'm submitting a writing sample for an application, and it has been published, should I submit a copy of the final, published form, or a simple copy from my word processing program?
