well, he's definitely not an art major, look at those hands!

If this is so true, how come all the English Majors I met are kinda depressed looking and come off as mean, strict, or overly anal?
Probably because the comic is making fun of English Majors.
well if all you did was read books just to edit mistakes, analyze books to help someone improve it, and work mostly with teenagers…you'd uptight, depressed, and angry too.
it's pretty much exactly like that for Classics majors too…
and in reality the most stated words said by English Majors are "You want fries with that?"
An English major would never say that!….. It's "WOULD YOU LIKE fries with that?" ;-)
As an English student at Oxford Uni, I can pretty much confirm that this is the case. My knowledge of Anglo Saxon exegetical verse actually made four women spontaneously orgasm the other day.
Perks of being an English Major:
A healthy imagination.
I'll stick with being an IT major. Sure it's thankless, but we're bad asses at what we do.
