I was completely dumbfounded when I found out that there were still schools that had lockers. I honestly thought they all got rid of them. Everything that Zak is surprised about is based upon what my high school was actually like. I swear. Even though Germany had been united for ten years, every single book, video, and handout we ever had in German class talked about East Germany and West Germany as separate countries. They probably all still do. And there was no arithmetic in our math books, which were paperback. I’m not joking.

I’m not sure how I’m letting myself get away with having the word “penises” in my family-friendly comic. (And now I’m really worried about what the spam-bots are going to try to post on this page.)
