Comic: Hollow Oak University – #25 – Book Ends

It is always weird editing another person’s paper or dissertation. At first, you don’t really concentrate on what they are saying, but how they are saying it. Mainly because you don’t want to know what they are doing in case it brings your own research to shame. And in the case of Berkeley, whose experiments and their “results” we have chronicled here, it isn’t a stretch to think that whoever this student is, their research is a tad more successful than Berkeley’s. So out come the knives. But Berkeley is a smart enough fellow to actually admit to Chester (and himself) the reason why he is doing it. I don’t know if that makes it better or worse, that self-awareness, but at least Berkeley’s got it.

According to Sean, Book Ends are the blue bird creatures in the background. He says, and I quote:

Small bird like creatures that live in Dirigible libraries and eat book mites. They spend most of their time sleeping and propping books up. It’s hard to tell if they are asleep or not, which makes them seem like they are always looking at you disparagingly for not getting enough work done.

Slowly, but surely (and don’t call me Shirley), the Hollow Oak Universe is expanding, which is totally contradicting early scientists’ claims that said the universe is contracting.
