Having paid for some form of college education for the last 15 years….I appreciate this strip!
definately real. The bill scares the living crap out of me…
YOUR NAME IS SPELLED LIKE MINE!!! YOU ROCK!!!!!
woah my name is…. hha jk
The most advanced mugger…"I'm from the IRS".
“Here’s yo’ Audit.”
The comic itself was hilarious, but NathanBlack….i nearly peed my pants. Thank you!
My neighbor works for the IRS, and he loves to call people at work around tax season so IRS shows up on their caller id.
Best site on the web
the college one, so god damned true man, im looking forward to paying back my student loan for the next 25 years.
My boyfriend owes 94,000 for an associates at a music school… what the hell is going on!!! they are robbing us!
$94K for a two year degree?!
Where the heck did he go to school, Fort Knox Academy?
maybe he went to Julliard.
oh shit ITS THE IRS!!!! xD
Then it is nice to live in Denmark, Where everybody is able to get an education. Because it's absolotely free 😀
It's not free, your taxes pay for it.
judging by the fact that you cannot spell absolutely, I gather a paid education is more worth while 😀
And I suppose your paid education means you can spell absolutely perfectly in Danish…
I rather pay for education via taxes granting that everyone can have one.
And if my English sucks, because I got it for free, then excuse me, plz ;o)))
(Still guess your Danish wouldn't be a hit either ;o))))
Oh how I wish we here in the states would adopt the education and healthcare "socialism" the majority of the rest of the free world employs. Seriously! I'd rather pay for it in taxes then have the 28000$ hospital debt and the 49000$ education debt I currently have.
This is the one that made me follow your site. BRAVO
omg xD super cool
This is what your sentence should have looked like: Then it is nice to live in Denmark, where everybody is able to get an education as it is absolutely free.
Notice there is no capital "W" after a comma and no need for a period after education.
I would expect you to know these things though with your free education and all.
Tell me MikeG, how is that second language of yours? Basic, Average, Good, Excellent or let me guess… Non-Existing?
You go, Amelia! Don’t let some smug, mono-language-speaking American flip you no lip!
Mike, you missed out some quotation marks! 😉
Considering he is from Denmark, English is likely not his first language. So a spelling mistake and some grammatical errors in what is likely Thomas' second, or possibly third language is actually pretty outstanding. Also, just for fun: find the missing comma in your own post, then find all the other errors people have posted… seriously, the nit-picking is quite tiresome (even mine).
thats why you should go to school just dont tell them that you are there!
Lol Hee Hee NathanBlack Such a joker lol
funny comment hee hee i agree XD
Seriously? Everyone criticizing Thomas needs to chill the fuck out. You try learning English as your second (or maybe third) language and see how well you know our grammar rules. When y'all can speak AND write in more than one language fluently feel free to begin the criticisms.
Agreed. Even with English as my FIRST language, I've never quite gotten the hang of some of the intricacies of grammar (like who/whom). I actually do better, grammar wise, in my second language (spanish). Though it may have something to do with going to public school… (only partially kidding; some of the best and worst teachers I have ever had worked there, and there are some things that aren't in the curriculum that you learn in public school that you wouldn't necessarily learn in private school)
I'm making this comment 'cause I think it'll help you with that one grammar issue, but I agree with the rest of your comment, too.
When you're deciding between "who" and "whom," reword the sentence using "he" or "him." If "he" makes sense or at least sounds right, then use "who," and "him" for "whom." That's one of the best English tricks I've learned on the internet. ex. Who/Whom is going to the party? ("Him is going to the party" wouldn't make sense here, so it's "who.")
You guys do realize that English would be his second language? How many Americans can say that they know another language fluently enough to be able to comment on boards like these? And I mean Americans who weren't born in a different country or who's parents speak Spanish. When you guys learn Danish, or say, Russian or German or Chinese, then you can gang up on him.
Anyway, great strip! hahaha
IÂ´d love to get into the discussion, since I am from Mexico, where the best university in the country is public and students only got to pay nearly 2 cents of a dollar per year (no kidding: it is obviously a symbolic payment), but I donÂ´t seem to be able to visualize the image of the comic in my browser. Any suggestions, please?
Ah! Apparently, Adam wanted me to actually get into the discussion, 'cause the moment I submitted my comment, I was able to see the strip, which is great, by the way!
Although we donÂ´t feel very identified with this kind of robbery, we do suffer from equally sophisticated muggers, say, mobile-phones-service or internet providers…
hahaha this is super real!
Ã…h ja! Jeg har lÃ¦rt dansk for de sidste fem Ã¥r, og jeg er desvÃ¦rre stadig ikke sÃ¥ godt :-[
Oh yes! I have been learning Danish for the last five years, and I am unfortunately still not so good 😉
I was expecting the ultimate mugger to be the bank's manager or CEO or similar. 😉
I do agree education costs are expensive. Served my time at university. Paid for the crime for years!
this hits too close to home shool is way to es-pensive
Lol, so very true. A clever comic, thanks for sharing with us!
Superr!!! loved it
Level 5, "our bank needs a bailout"
If the planet can flourish without humans but humans cannot survive without life on this planet why would we think we were the most important species We have become the worst thing that has happened to earth.
I love these comics, funny and truthful. Keep them coming!
Uber Hyper Master Mugger: The government… "OMG ITS THE FEDERAL MAFIA!!!"
this is so true. college mugs you alot.
LOL!!! This was hilarious I'm gonna send it to all my friends!!!
So… terrifyingly… true.
true, but i've found my education worth a fair bit of money so far. it's the private schools that will really drain your money, though
LOL this is hilarious.
96'000 for a two year course. No wonder I was told
To stay at home for education. Luckily, If I get into uni in september
I miss the £9,000 per year fee, until I opt to do my PCGE.
So all in all, by the time I leave uni, I will be a qualified teacher
But in £19,500 worth of debt. But hey, this is my future
And its not going to be as much as some poor people
The incredibly, Super. Hyper-Advanced mugger is the government. They've even got it set up so that YOU tell THEM how much you owe (as long as they agree): "Here's my tax return."
i won 9 million on the lotto 2 years ago. i feel for you guys.
In cartoon character in last, some student it was the great problem

:))) excelent! ain’t that the thruth?!?
That’s pretty good! Wasn’t ready for the end!
That’s some funny shit
hehe, pension funds would be uber-muggers
thats pretty funny
Education is expensive but in the United States we do have cheaper options. In the U.S. we have community college, which is secondary two year education after High School and is much cheaper than university. In the U.S. all the courses taken at a Community College transfer to the University.
In the U.S. taxes do support state run universities but they are usually property taxes and by people that own their own homes. Individuals that have a mortgage or pay rent also pay for the community colleges and universities but the tax is hidden in their monthly payments.
